“I got the GPS tracker today. Love the tiny house postcards.” B. Schwerin, happy customer


Strategic Insurance Agency, a unit of Martin Burlingame Insurance Agency, Inc., has been serving the needs of individuals, families, and businesses for over 10 years.

Our fully licensed staff has over 60 years of combined experience. We specialize in tailoring insurance programs to meet the individual needs of each and every client. Our CEO, Martin Burlingame, came to realize the crisis that tiny homeowners were having finding insurance while meeting with industry leaders at the 2015 National Tiny House Jamboree. After the 2015 Jamboree Martin continuously heard from builders, marketing companies, bloggers, and tiny homeowners that insurance was a huge concern in order for the movement to continue to progress. Martin worked with multiple insurance companies to develop custom programs for the industry. His passion comes from the desire to help find a solution for those who want to minimize their carbon footprint.


At Strategic Insurance Agency we love tiny houses just as much as you.  We wanted to be part of the tiny home movement alongside the other tiny home and small living enthusiasts and so with Martin’s efforts, we have created a special exclusive tiny home insurance program!

Martin Burlingame is recognized as the foremost insurance expert, speaker, and author on insurance needs of tiny homes and homeowners. Strategic Insurance Agency aims to be your tiny home insurance specialist!


We are continuously strengthening our relationship in the industry and we are currently a member of the Tiny Home Industry Association.



Through Martin’s connections at last year’s Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, he was asked to contribute a chapter in the book Turning Tiny: The Small-Living Paradigm That’s Reshaping the Way We Think, Live and Dream. Darin Zaruba: “Over sixty celebrants and leaders of the Tiny House Movement have come together to embody the spirit of human scale living in one amazing book. Turning Tiny, a collection of stories from some of the most renowned tiny house thought leaders and luminaries.” Check out Turning Tiny today!
