This education Designation is offered only by Mountain Metro Association of REALTORS®.  All classes are approved for CE credit by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies, Division of Real Estate. MMAR will follow the NAR designations guidelines and promote the CMAS designation only to the REALTOR population and educate the public about the designation. MMAR will also offer CMAS Affiliate designation to MMAR Affiliate members who work in support of MMAR REALTOR members.

Mountain and rural areas are properties with unique features such as domestic and household wells, septic and leach fields, fire mitigation concerns and easement issues just to name a few. Our CMAS continuing education program covers these issues and more to provide the education needed to effectively market and sell these properties.
