Condo conundrum

I am having big problems buying condo insurance. I
did not anticipate this. I assumed it would be easy and
the policy would cover about what a homeowners
(or rental property) policy would cover. So far, I have not found anyone to sell me what I want. I cover the personal
property through my Illinois homeowners policy and buy
a separate policy for liability (expensive). Been going with this for 2 years now. This morning I called every out-of- state
owner in our building to pick their brains. The only guy I
actually talked to (North Dakota) said that they also had trouble until they bought more Texas property. Now, they
are okay. I joked that maybe I needed to buy something
else. Currently, my (Michigan) corp. owns the condo,
I reside mostly in Illinois and we rent the condo out to others about 50%+ of the time. My Illinois agent
says "We're not licensed in Texas." A Texas agent thinks
they should still be able to add the whole package onto
my Illinois policy. Any ideas?

Try Western Insurance at 254-547-2626. They are located in Bell county and handle my rentals there. Their rates have always been very good so maybe they can help.

Thanks. I'll try them, although the name seems vaguely familiar so maybe I talked
to them before.
