Board of Realtors in Fort Collins Colorado has joined the Colorado Association of Realtors' initiative to create a statewide network of locally trained Ombuds for Realtors and the public. The CAR program is meant to serve as an intermediary informal step for individuals with concerns about real estate transactions.
The work of the FCBR Ombuds is intended to be primarily one of communication and conciliation, not adjudication and several Fort Collins Realtors have already completed training. These state and local efforts are part of a national Ombuds program promoted by he National Association of Realtors. (FCBR News.)
