Jumpstart is first-of-its-kind earthquake insurance that allows real estate agents to provide clients with added peace of mind during the sales process and thereafter. We pay our customers a $10,000 lump-sum immediately after a large earthquake, and the money can be used as-needed for recovery, whether or not there is physical damage.
