After serving six months as the division’s interim director, Marcia Waters has been made the permanent head of the Colorado Division of Real Estate. As reported by the Denver Post, Waters had previously served as the agency’s director of investigations and compliance for over five years. Waters also brings her experience as a real estate broker and detective for law enforcement to the position.
Waters replaces Erin Toll, who was put on administrative leave last spring for reporting that Senator Ted Harvey and the mortgage brokerage he works for were under investigation for allegedly breaking advertising rules. DORA later stated that Harvey was under no such investigation. Toll resigned and reached a settlement with the state in June.
