The VBR and VMLS Board of Directors have approved to change its MLS Rules and Regulations not to allow affiliates and unlicensed individuals to have Sentrilock access. Appraisers are licensed and this change will not affect them. The reason for this is due to the liability of providing access to unlicensed individuals. This change was approved on April 28, 2020, and will be implemented on July 8 (this is a change from the previously announced date). The Realtor® must grant access to affiliates moving forward. We understand this isn't ideal, but we do have an easy solution.
The SentriConnect Mobile App allows the listing agent to grant temporary access to their lockboxes that are assigned to a property for those who don't already have access like contractors, inspectors, and photographers. SentriConnect allows the listing agent to grant access to a specific lockbox for a specific duration of time and receive instant notifications of when the SentriConnect user accesses the lockbox.

Eagle County- Phase 3 - Black Diamond
Eagle County is now in the Black Diamond Phase.
July 2, 2020 - Eagle County Public Health and Environment has updated the county’s Public Health Order regarding COVID-19. In alignment with the county’s Transition Trail Map and with modifications in accordance with a variance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), the move to the “Black Diamond” Phase will take place on July 3.
Current disease surveillance data has pushed Eagle County into a cautious state with recent increases in spread noted in the county and region. In addition, state and national transmission data continues to increase with several states slowing down their reopening plan in advance of the holiday weekend. “Our ability to keep the virus in check and slow the spread at a community level is based on our individual behaviors,” said Heath Harmon, Director of Eagle County Public Health and Environment. “The recent increases in Eagle County warrant everyone’s caution. Whether you are a local or a visitor, we want you to reduce contact with others and remain vigilant with the Five Commitments of Containment.”
-I will maintain 6 feet of distance
-I will wash my hands often
-I will cover my face in public
-I will stay home when I am sick
-I will get tested immediately if I have symptoms
The revised Eagle County Public Health Order reflects these current disease trends and holds gatherings sizes at lower levels than originally requested in the variance sent to the CDPHE, while also implementing a requirement for face coverings in public indoor settings.
Specifically, group sizes are limited to up to 100 people indoors and 175 people outdoors as long as 6 feet of distance between non-household members can be maintained.
In addition, the previous guidance that recommended face coverings in public indoor spaces is now a requirement. “We are taking this step now to protect the progress we’ve made, as well as our near- and long-term goals of a successful school year, ski season and beyond,” said Commissioner Kathy Chandler-Henry. “We believe the potential inconvenience of wearing masks is a small price to pay to protect that future.”
