at the office i'm at we pay about $20 a month per agent

If you really want to know how much it is, call your BPO provider and ask for a quote.

I got a quote a while back and it is based on the production of the office the year before.

My quote I got was for a brand new office with less than 12 agents, the office located in SC and the quote was about $1000 a year

I haven't started yet, I need to take my licensing exam. But the broker I talked to said that I would pay a proration of $549.00 So I am assuming that the area where I am, we would be paying quarterly?

Just got my premium notice for 2008 of $699. That probably doesn't mean much to anyone without knowing the deductible and/or the coverage limit. As for a cost per transaction I haven't a clue as I don't know how many transactions I will have next year.

CRES --- Bob Cooper $98 per transaction, I am upgrading to regular policy,

Their home warranty is through Land Am and they waive deductible should you have a problem.

Per transaction gets expensive.

I will be getting quotes soon.

The policy charge in isolation means little.

For clarity, please specify what your limits are and the deductible, ie. $100,000 coverage and $1000 deductible.

I'll lead off. We use St. Paul. Our policy is for $1,000,000 an agent and the deductible is $1000. It also covers the sale or purchase of property by our agents. A policy for 110 agents runs $16,000.

What are annual rates you are paying, In CA, I also have CRES, I am on $98 per transaction,
1 million, 2500 deductible waived if you use their home warranty from land america. covers a couple agents.

That gets pricey quickly.

I use Cres insurnace Bob Cooper

I use Rice Insurance. I pay $243 a year for my company that I own. I then pay $243 for my personal O & E insurance. My broker associate is under me pays $243 as well for his own policy from the same company. This covers all transactions in a year. So I guess we are fortunate here in Colorado that our O & E insurance isn't as much as other states. Oh and on our policies you can add more coverage if you think you might want to do something illegal in the coming year. Or if you are prone to misleading the public and lying to clients.

You might want to try your state association. They should have a discount program with one or more carriers. State Farm writes E&O for brokers as do a great many other carriers.

Does the cost vary on years of experience and the amount of agents?
