Colorado state real estate regulator resigns
DENVER – The embattled head of the state’s real estate division has resigned.
Erin Toll said Friday that she resigned as of Monday. She made the announcement in a joint press release with her boss, Department of Regulatory Agencies chief Barbara Kelley.
Toll had been on paid leave since March. She was suspended after she sparred with state Sen. Ted Harvey, a mortgage broker, over a bill that would give a board, not her, the power to oversee mortgage brokers.
Toll said Harvey and his employer were under investigation. However, records show that an investigation wasn’t launched until the next day.
The department has repeatedly said Harvey himself wasn’t the target of the probe.
Toll sued Kelley last month accusing her of violating her rights.
