Working in real estate involves many inherent risks. From showing clients vacant properties to hosting open houses and disclosing personal information in your online marketing, your well-being is at stake every time you go out into the field. But safety is just as important an issue for your clients as it is for yourself. Thinking more critically about your work environment can help you be better prepared for potentially dangerous situations and inform your conversations with clients about safeguarding their valuables during showings.
NAR has a wealth of resources, including articles, videos, webinars, and courses, to help agents, brokers, and associations better understand and educate each other about the risks they face.

Calls for Action
CAR CALL TO ACTION!!!
Limited Local Growth Ballot Initiative
The proposed Limited Growth ballot initiative #66 would:
- ▪ Limit new permits for the total number of all housing units in each of the 10 most populous counties (Front Range) to 1% in both 2019 and 2020.
- ▪ Allows every Colorado City, Town, or County statewide to vote for housing growth moratoriums
- ▪ Prohibits permits between the election in November 2018 and January 1, 2019
- ▪ Voters would not be able to reconsider or alter the initiative in any manner if voters approved
until at least 2021
Colorado’s economy has grown rapidly in recent years fueled by a strong job market, and an enviable quality of life that defines the Colorado experience. This potential statewide ballot initiative proposes placing arbitrary limits on growth that could cripple future economic prosperity and create new growth burdens on the already low inventory of housing available to Colorado consumers. This initiative would have a very significant detrimental effect on affordability of housing in Colorado. We cannot increase affordability of housing by decreasing the supply of housing.
The supply of affordable housing is a vital component to a regional economy. The availability of affordable housing is critical to retaining a skilled workforce, keeping local business competitive, and reducing urban sprawl. It also gives young people the chance to purchase rather than rent, allowing them to begin building valuable home equity.
Businesses also need to be able to continue to attract and retain talented workers that can afford to live and thrive in the communities where they work. A lack of affordable housing near employment centers pushes workers farther from their jobs, forces them to commute longer distances, puts undue strain on local roadways and public transportation, and dis- incentivizes workers and their employers to locate in Colorado.
PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES, AND NEIGHBORS NOT TO SIGN THE PETITION TO PUT ARBITRARY HOUSING LIMITS ON THE BALLOT IN COLORADO!
Don’t let Colorado become the next California Housing is already too unaffordable for many Coloradans
NAR CALL TO ACTION!!
NAR is currently conducting a Call for Action with our Commercial members in support of HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act.
This bipartisan bill adds a crucial “notice-and-cure” provision to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), giving business owners an opportunity to fix an alleged violation before costly legal proceedings are initiated. Currently, attorneys around the country are taking advantage of the ADA’s lack of a notice requirement, filing lawsuits indiscriminately against commercial property owners, often for minor, easily corrected infractions. The property owners must then either settle or use their time and money on legal proceedings – resources that could have instead gone to fixing the alleged violation.
HR 620 would restore the integrity of the ADA by curbing these abusive practices and incentivizing business owners to quickly correct ADA infractions. For more information on this bill, see NAR’s issue summary on ADA Lawsuit Reform here.

NAR’s Member Policy area has enhanced the Ethics Complaints, Arbitration Requests and Related Information page on REALTOR.org to provide easy access to that information. Associations can add the link shown below. If associations have their own forms, rules, or procedures those should also be posted.
