Not Just Tech
There are plenty of tech companies trying to digitize the transaction and replace real estate professionals. We want no part of that. We’re founded by risk management experts and we have 1 goal: to stop home sale legal issues for sellers, agents and brokers.
Save time and prevent legal issues for you and your sellers. We limit your liability and give you a more efficient way to manage your sellers disclosures from your easy-to-use agent dashboard.
We offer an online step-by-step disclosure process with tips and resources, designed by legal experts, to help prevent home sellers from making critical mistakes disclosing the condition of their home.
Homeowner’s and umbrella insurance won’t protect your seller against home sale legal claims. Our optional Home Sale Legal Protection™ offers your clients protection and peace of mind after the sale.
“As a realtor, this is an incredible product that I wish I had thought of first. I’m extremely pleased to have this protection on every transaction!“
We’ve seen it a thousand times. The home is sold, everyone has happily moved on, and the transaction is considered a success. Fourteen months after the sale, a storm hits and the roof leaks causing extensive damage. The home buyer is upset and files a claim stating the seller and their listing agent knew about the problem and didn’t disclose. They demand payment for the repairs, punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and even threaten to void the sale.
Don’t let a claim put a strain on your business and your seller’s lives. Disclosure forms are legal documents, let us handle them. We reduce risk during disclosure and offer your sellers peace of mind after the sale.
We protect home sellers with up to $20,000 paid legal representation
For claims made within 1, 2, or 3 years of the sale of the home
Available during disclosure or anytime before closing

Our tools and forms are forever free and you can invite unlimited sellers to disclose. You can choose to add your headshot and branding throughout the seller experience by upgrading to a premium account for $9.99 a month.
The Smart Sellers Tools give definitions, tips, and warns the seller when they are answering a question that is commonly cited in lawsuits. There are no space limitations allowing the seller to include as much detail as necessary to properly disclose. The forms also require the seller to answer every question assuring a fully completed disclosure form. After the seller completes the forms, a custom formatted pdf is generated and emailed directly to the agent and seller and stored in their dashboard.
Depending on the state, addendums will either be automatically added based on the seller’s answers (ie. lead based paint form) or the agent can choose which addendums are required.
Disclosure forms are legal documents and sellers commonly ask their agents how to answer questions on the forms. These questions put agents in a difficult situation legally, because they are not attorneys. The Smart Sellers Tools are designed by legal experts to help answer these questions, separating agents from the disclosure process and limiting their liability in the event of a claim.
Additionally, purchasing or informing sellers of Home Sale Legal Protection™ fulfills fiduciary duty and proves the agent has provided the highest standard of care in the event of a claim.
You’ll be able to track all of your seller’s progress in your dashboard. Once your seller completes the disclosure process, you will receive an email with the completed pdf. You can also manage and download completed forms from within your dashboard.
The seller can access their forms in their dashboard anytime to edit and make changes. If edits are made on a fully executed document, the seller(s) will have to resign and date.
When sellers get sued the agent and brokerage are almost always named in the lawsuit. Leading national insurance companies have endorsed Sellers Shield in their E&O policies, offering brokers / agents deductible waivers on claims where Sellers Shield is used.
If Home Sale Legal Protection™ was purchased and there is a claim after the sale, Sellers Shield will appoint an experienced real estate attorney to defend the seller against a buyer dispute.
The protection activates after the closing of the sale.
No. Home Sale Legal Protection™ can only be purchased up until the closing of the sale.
