Real Estate Risk Management and Insurance

Seize opportunities by removing obstacles.

We focus on your total cost of risk so you can experience the positive impact on your bottom line and your customer experiences.

Our real estate clients cover a broad spectrum of organizations including commercial office and warehouses; retail; multifamily housing (market rate, subsidized, military); and student housing.

Our team of veteran real estate experts take a three-prong approach to your total cost of risk: safety, insurance coverages, and claims. We follow this order because our first priority is helping our clients ensure they are operating in a safe environment. We provide targeted training for each department within your organization and develop training to meet the specific challenges and risks experienced every day by your property management, maintenance, security, and construction staff.  We offer training in many languages and around the clock as we know your operations are often 24/7.

We develop and place broad, cost-effective insurance programs to protect you when a claim occurs. We tailor our programs to meet all facets of your operations, and we ensure these programs are in compliance with contractual requirements set forth by third-party lenders, tax credit investors, and governmental entities.

When a claim occurs, our team is right there to advocate on your behalf of the best outcome.  During the process we will guide you every step of the way, along with your counsel and staff and the insurance carriers.

Highlighted Real Estate Experience


We helped an operator of an affordable housing community recover an additional $400,000 from their insurance carrier after sustaining substantial damage as a result of a significant hurricane. In another instance of our aggressive claims management approach, we successfully maximized a complicated Civil Authority settlement which was initially denied by the insurance company. This resulted in excess of $1,000,000 recovery for our client.
