REFERRING BROKERS

The following is a list of the real estate brokerage firms who have one or more agents that have referred buyers to CIDA over the past six years. Without exception these brokerage firms have been highly supportive of the pre-purchase due diligence concept in general and of CIDA’s efforts to market the service in the Portland-Vancouver area. The Principals and Managing Brokers who are associated with these firms are pioneers who, like CIDA, are seeking to raise the standards of the industry with respect to financial reporting, administrative transparency and the real estate disclosure process. Each of these companies deserves credit for the success of CIDA and the growing acceptance of the pre-purchase due diligence process as a component of the residential real estate sales process. If you are looking for a broker to assist you with the purchase or sale of a home, we encourage you to consider using the services of one of these forward-thinking companies.


REFERRING AGENTS

These hard-working professionals are on the front line in the battle to obtain the documents and information that is required to conduct the pre-purchase due diligence examination.

As most of them will tell you, it can be a major challenge to obtain the documents in spite of the fact that the laws in Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii and other states require that the seller or the HOA provide some or all of the documents that are needed to complete the due diligence examination.
