RPS Signature Programs Launches New Real Estate Appraisers E&O Program with GenStar – Insurance Journal

Rolling Meadows, IL., March 28, 2022 – RPS Signature Programs, the program administration division of specialty insurance distributor Risk Placement Services, launches a new Real Estate Appraisers Errors & Omissions (E&O) program with General Star National Insurance Company.

Available to quote-bind-issue online in just two minutes through RPS’s Small Business Platform, this new offering provides E&O coverage for individual residential and commercial real estate appraisers. It is designed to protect against claims arising out of an act, error or omission that results in failure to render professional services for clients.

“At RPS Signature Programs, we are specialists in E&O and professional liability insurance coverages,” said Adrienne Woodhull, Area President. “We are pleased to extend this deep expertise to Real Estate appraisers, as this new program gives niche professionals the confidence that their unique E&O exposures are covered should a claim occur.”

“Combining the tremendous security and Real Estate E&O expertise of GenStar with the experience of RPS, enhances the strength of both organizations. We are excited to move forward with this new program arrangement,” said Matt Brown, Senior Vice President/ Delegated Division Manager for GenStar.

In commenting further about the new Real Estate E&O program, Martin Hacala, President and CEO of GenStar, stated, “GenStar continues to respond to the marketplace with unique protection for real estate risks. GenStar is fortunate to team up with RPS to deliver the specialized protection needed by real estate professionals.”

  • Free extended reporting period for death, disability, or retirement
  • Defense costs outside the limits of liability
