Working in Colorado’s booming real estate industry just became more efficient and effective thanks to eLicense, a new online license management launched by the Colorado Division of Real Estate, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).
Mailing in written applications, using checks for payment, or waiting for a license to arrive is now history. Today, approximately 55,000 licensed real estate industry professionals in Colorado can use eLicense to submit their applications online, update their accounts, renew or reinstate their license, and print their licenses on demand.
The eLicense system also creates efficiencies for Division of Real Estate staff. For example, the division receives approximately 10,000 transfer and change applications a year for real estate brokers alone. These transfers and changes can now be completed by the licensee at their convenience.
In addition, the system’s database allows the general public to get instant information on licensees, such as disciplinary actions, and use the system to file a complaint.
