JUST THE FACTS: No Truth to Reports Division of Real Estate Mandating Vaccinations as Part of Licensure
The Vail Board of REALTORS® is dedicated to being essential to our members’ success. Keeping our members informed on industry trends and issues with accurate, truthful, real-time information is a top priority for VBR leadership and staff.
It has come to our attention that a false rumor is circulating online and on social media among Colorado REALTORS® relating to vaccination requirements for real estate licensees. It is obvious why REALTORS® who have received any communication with this message would be alarmed! VBR wants to ease our members' minds with the fact that the Division of Real Estate is NOT planning to require vaccinations for Colorado Real Estate Licensees. Moreover, The Vail Board of REALTORS® has no such requirement for membership.
There is truth to the fact that the Board of Health is considering an emergency rule for vaccinations, but this is ONLY for DORA professionals working with vulnerable populations in medical settings and congregate senior living facilities, NOT any other group. There is no consideration of a rule requiring vaccination that would impact our REALTOR® Members. This has been confirmed by the Marcia Waters of the Division of Real Estate and by the Colorado Association of REALTORS®.
The best source of information on guidance, Best Practices, or any regulations related to real estate licensees is the Division of Real Estate (colorado.gov), or you can find legal and regulatory updates on the Colorado Association of REALTORS® website. VBR will always act quickly to inform its members directly of any changing regulations at our local board, DORA and CAR. Your success and safety are important to us!

The VMLS Board reinstated one-day codes as a backup option for issues with the SentriConnect App, cell phone coverage, or other extenuating circumstances. After hearing the concerns of the members, the VBR and VMLS Board of Directors have approved to add back this feature.
Realtor®/Appraisers must continue to grant access to affiliates and unlicensed individuals such as contractors, inspectors, and photographers. The original reason for the change was because of liability risk to the Board by using the one-day codes. For example, if a member gives access to a person using a one-day code, and something happens during this time the person is in the property, or if the one-day code is shared with an unauthorized person. Since the VBR is providing the lockbox service, the liability could potentially fall to the association, because we would not have had a way to track who was in the property.
If members choose to use the one-day code feature, they are REQUIRED to input the first name, last name, and phone number of the person entering the property so that the MLS has the data needed for our liability. As part of the changes to the Rules and Regulations, a fee of $50 per occurrence will be issued to members who violate this requirement.
The SentriConnect Mobile App allows the listing agent to grant temporary access to their lockboxes that are assigned to a property for those who don't already have access like contractors, inspectors, and photographers. SentriConnect allows the listing agent to grant access to a specific lockbox for a specific duration of time and receive instant notifications of when the SentriConnect user accesses the lockbox.
