Lock boxes and keys (Risco) contract ends in March 2017. A Committee was formed and will begin discussing possibilities after Dean Hanson and Installation are behind us. The Committee consists of Mindy Rosenbaugh, Dawn Utrup, Bonnie Leighton, Leila Hanson, and Carol Click.
The Dean Hanson Memorial Golf Tournament Committee will be meeting at the Elks Club on Wednesday, August 31st at noon at the Elks Club. The tournament will be held on September 10th this year. Remember to get your things together for the goody bags. If you have goodies please drop them off at RE/MAX Mesa Verde Realty or the Board office. Also, get your $100.00 hole sponsorship to Denise and don’t forget that we are again having a silent auction. If you would like to donate something for the silent auction please drop those items off with Michelle at Colorado Title and Closing Services.
Four Corners Board of Realtors® is in compliance with Core Standards as of June 30, 2016. Next compliance completion date is December 31, 2017. Copies of the new compliance requirements were distributed to the Board members, and I have attached a copy below.
There has been discussion on allowing personal assistants to have their own lock box keys, with appropriate fees. If you have any comments about this subject please let Denise know. This topic will be on the agenda for the September Board Meeting. See below the NAR Policy and the Four Corners Board of Realtors Policy:
NAR policy: Associations and multiple listing services may, at their discretion, authorize unlicensed personal assistants, administrative and clerical staff, and individuals seeking licensure as real estate appraisers, who are under the direct supervision of a designated REALTOR®, or MLS participant, or their licensed designee, to hold a lock box key on the same terms and conditions as non-principal brokers and sales licensees. (Adopted 11/93)
Four Corners Board of Realtors® policy: EVERY MLS PARTICIPANT, BROKER ASSOCIATE WHO IS AFFILIATED WITH AN MLS PARTICIPANT, OR A LICENSED OR CERTIFIED APPRAISER AFFILIATED WITH THE FOUR CORNERS BOARD OF REALTORS® AND WHO IS LEGALLY ELIGIBLE FOR MLS ACCESS, SHALL BE ELIGIBLE TO HOLD A ReaderKEY WHICH MAY NOT BE USED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BY ANYONE OTHER THAN THE ReaderKEY HOLDER. ReaderKEYS MAY NOT BE LOANED TO ANY PERSON, FOR ANY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER OR TO PERMIT THE ReaderKEY TO BE USED FOR ANY PURPOSE BY ANY OTHER PERSON.
There was discussion about holding a pumpkin carving contest this fall with proceeds going to the Pinon Project. This will also reappear on the agenda.
Colorado RPAC day was held on August 4, 2016. Marti Spitzer was the winner of the free dues in September. Congratulations Marti!
