But what can you do when your thorough service and disclosures aren't enough to keep a miffed buyer from suing? Or what happens if you get into an auto accident while driving a client to a viewing?
Lawsuits may crop up suddenly, but their effects are lasting: they could level the real estate agency you've built. That's why there's real estate business insurance.
