Advocacy During Quarantine

Dear HBA of Metro Denver Members,

As you know, our HBA Advocacy is in place. We are working hard to make sure our industry can continue with inspections and permitting, as well as maintaining being considered an “essential industry” as we address this national pandemic that touches all of us. Please know that we have been in touch with OSHA regionally and nationally, asking them to provide alternative, approved safety measures for our field workers without fines so that we can help our front-line medical heroes. We are working with NAHB and our Congressional leaders, as well as our local governments.

We will be posting various messages on this page that may or may not have been shared via blog post. Feel free to bookmark this page as a reference for Advocacy issues, resources and announcements during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please reach out to me directly with any questions surrounding these issues.

Together, our members will make a tremendous difference in these unprecedented times.  Thank you.


4/9/2020 | Several builder, lender, title, inspector and appraisal HBA members have asked me to help with clarification of Executive Order 20-24 Real Estate Business Limitation.

The best way for me to communicate any clarification surrounding this issue is to provide you with two YouTube Videos from yesterday and today from the Colorado Association of Realtors (CAR).  CAR’s Legal Department sought and received further guidance which has been shared with us and CAHB and shared through CAR videos that I think will be beneficial toward answering the questions we’ve received from our membership.
