Colorado launches eLicense system for real estate

The Colorado Division of Real Estate has made it easier for real estate industry professionals to handle applications, accounts and licenses online with the launch of eLicense, a web-based license management tool.

The eLicense system will allow the state’s 55,000 licensed real estate personnel to easily stay in compliance, with the ability to submit applications online, update accounts, renew or reinstate their license and print licenses when needed, according to Colorado's Division of Real Estate.

This modernization will also benefit the Division of Real Estate staff by easing the burden of processing the nearly 10,000 transfer and change applications received each year. Now, the licensee can complete the applications online, on their time.

Citizens can use the system’s database to find information regarding up-to-date licenses of real estate brokers and mortgage loan originators, view disciplinary actions and file complaints of their own. Colorado officials hope the online information will help real estate customers to be better informed before choosing an industry professional’s services.

The division already offers online tutorials and transitional assistance to licensees, as well as new account sign-up and the ability to search for licensed professionals.

The Division of Real Estate is part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies. DORA worked with the Governor’s Office of Information Technology to oversee the new system’s success.

“This improvement is part of our goal at OIT to use technology to make life easier for our citizens,” said Suma Nallapati, Colorado's secretary of technology and CIO.
