I never knew the answer to that.. I've never shopped around for E & O as the price is a relatively low $500./year with a high deductible. I do carry a very high personal/professional umbrella policy with Chubb for nearly complete protection (certain exclusions are there).

Offhand I don't recall who my current E & O insurer is.

Whatever company you deal with, watch for the policy exclusions. There are plenty of them in policies available from major providers.

I hear good things about CRES, especially that you can get the fee paid if your buyers buy a CRES home protection policy.

I haven't a clue as my E&O is provided through my brokerage. This is like shopping for any insurance... not just what it costs, but what's the coverage for the price. You can be penny wise and pound foolish in the end.

In California ... they all are hella-expensive.  I do not know if CRES is in your area ... check them out.  Ask a few local brokers who they are insured with.

NAR has agreements with quite a few companies and you can check this at realtor.org. I do recommend that you talk to them first but do not have all of them submit proposals. I found through doing this that they do not send in the same information and it can trip you up.
