The Denver Metro Commercial Association of REALTORS® (DMCAR) has a program with Court Mediation Services (CMS) through the Colorado and Denver Bar Associations to provide professional mediation services to buyers and sellers of real estate. We are proud to offer this service and feel it will benefit brokers as well as their clients by resolving disputes quickly and inexpensively. All fees for this program are paid by the buyer and seller. Payments benefit the Denver Bar Association’s Volunteer Court Mediation Project. So, using mediation will also support that much needed and highly regarded program.
If this mediation program is acceptable to both parties and you would like to proceed with scheduling a mediation, you may access the online form here. Or, call the CMS at (303) 322-6750 x 103.
The mediator will contact all the parties and arrange for a convenient time for the mediation to take place. Mediations are held at the Denver City and County Building, 1437 Bannock St., Room 167; Denver, CO 80202.
The cost is $150 per party, for up to two hours of mediation. Fees payable to the Court Mediation Services, Colorado Bar Association.
