BOZEMAN, Mont., May 29, 2019 (Newswire.com) - While the vacation rental industry’s spotlight has largely been focused on upcoming votes surrounding the regulation of high-profile destinations, Proper Insurance has quickly become a household name for commercial homeowners coverage, surpassing 30,000 policies written in the 50 U.S. States.
