Announcement

IMPORTANT – E&O Insurance Renewal 

It’s that time again! It’s time to renew our Errors & Omissions insurance. 

*There is nothing for you to do on your end. This will be automatically deducted from your credit card or pending commissions in the coming weeks. 

Please note that on average, E&O insurance has gone up in our industry for this coming year by 20%. But we are very fortunate to advise you that our insurance hasn’t increased in price; therefore, each agent will be charged the same as last year, which will be $380 for coverage from July 1, 2022 – July 1, 2023. 

We will begin collection of these fees this week. 

We will deduct the insurance in 2 ways:

1. Deduct from deal commissions. We will invoice your payroll account if you have current commissions pending. 

2. Pay by credit card (Visa and MasterCard accepted). We will use the credit card on file in the agent portal if no commissions are pending 

Some reminders: 

  • Coverage period is July 1, 2022 – July 1, 2023
  • $380 will be invoiced one time for the year 
  • You do NOT need to be a member of any industry association to get this pricing 
  • To hold an FSRA license, you must have E&O insurance at all times, whether you are doing business or not, without exception 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Diana or your Broker Owner.
