Kudos

After searching endlessly for tiny house insurance in my state (my house is not RVIA certified), I found Strategic Insurance Agency, who worked with me to get full coverage on my tiny house. As a full time tiny house dweller, I now am at peace knowing my investment is safe.”  

Alana Pulay

“Knowing my tiny house has insurance gives me an incredible peace of mind each night. Even though it didn’t cost me a lot to build, should something happen I like the security of knowing I am protected. Martin and his team gave me that security and I am so thankful.”

Andrew Odom

“Peace of mind explains how I feel having insurance the second year now for my Just B Tiny house. If you have a tiny house with no insurance, I highly recommend calling Martin Burlingame and the good folks at Strategic Insurance Agency.” -Brenda Schwerin, Just B Tiny
