Are you confident that your Real Estate business is getting first-class risk management protection?
Your real estate company may focus solely on one kind of property, like residential or commercial, and one type of service, like property management or development, or it may involve a combination of several different areas of the real estate industry. But no matter the size and scope of your business, every transaction, every day, is exposing your company to liability risks. From engaging with tenants or handling contracts to performing maintenance tasks or hiring qualified contractors, the nature of being in real estate is that you must be constantly on the lookout for potential issues, obstacles, and disputes. For this reason, it is essential to work with an experienced insurance broker and risk management resource like Fred C. Church, who understands the inner workings of the real estate industry, how each area differs, and the distinct processes and challenges each involves. As your broker, we will help you identify, assess, and manage the risks that your company is likely to face today and in the future.

Areas Of Focus
Serving the needs of real estate businesses across the U.S.
While the potential for financial and other rewards in the real estate industry is significant, there is a high risk for failure, as well. To help make sure that your investment of time, money, and hard work pays off, it is critical to gain as much control as possible over the specific risks involved in your real estate endeavors. Whether you’re involved in developing, selling, marketing, or managing properties, successfully managing your exposures will only happen if you clearly understand what these risks are, as well as how to address and mitigate them. From property damage caused by a natural disaster or a tenant’s negligence to a theft or personal injury on a property you own or operate, our Real Estate Practice Group will use a hands-on risk assessment process to not only help prepare you but also determine if you are appropriately protected for these and other common risks.
We deliver customized risk management programs and services to real estate businesses of varying sizes and specialties, including:
- Commercial Property Owners
- Condominium Associations
- Real Estate Investors
- Property Managers
- Land Developers

Our Three-Step Risk Management Process
Working hand-in-hand with you to regularly monitor your company’s potential losses.
We start by mapping out your potential operational and financial risks; how likely each is to happen and how frequently; and what impact they may have on your organization and finances. Then, working together, we take a proactive and strategic approach to help you determine which risks require your attention first.
Our goal is to understand how you currently deal with your identified risks and if this aligns with our knowledge of best practices for your specific industry. We also review your current insurance policies, and their limits and exclusions, to discover possible gaps or redundancies that may warrant changes to your plan.
Our team puts together a risk management program to address the risks you knew about, but that may not have been adequately covered, and those that we identified for you through this process. We then offer a variety of insurance solutions that will allow you to make decisions that align with your appetite for risk.
