Hello, we're Kin Insurance

Kin Insurance was founded in 2016 on one simple principle: homeowners deserve better. Your home insurer should be a partner in all things homeownership, not just an address that gets a check you mail. We help you find a better home insurance policy, and we don't stop there.
