ConsumersAdvocate.org Rating: 9 / 10 (Excellent)
Based in Aspen, Colorado, Kelly Klee is an online insurance broker that caters toward higher net worth individuals in the US. Along with "high value" home and seasonal residence coverage, the company also provides coverage for such items as luxury and vintage automobiles, private aircraft and watercraft, fine art or wine collections, jewelry, etc. Kelly Klee is staffed by professional agents who can provide policies from all the top carriers who specialize in affluent customers. Some companies include Chubb, Hagerty, and Nationwide Private Client.
Kelly Klee has experience in the particular ins and outs of insuring higher value homes and their contents, ensuring homeowners of these properties are not underinsured and at financial risk. The company also features comprehensive policy add ons like earthquake insurance that are usually not available from standard carriers.

- At fault accidents in last 3 years
- DUIs in last 10 years
- RVs, motorcycles, etc. you own or lease
- Watercraft you own or lease
- Value of assets

You will then be prompted to create an account to move forward with the process.
