Colorado regulator resigns, joins real estate brokerage

Erin Toll steps down as director of Division of Real Estate

Erin Toll, the Colorado regulator who gained national prominence five years ago with a probe of kickbacks in the title insurance industry, has resigned from her position as director of the Colorado Division of Real Estate and taken a job as a residential real estate broker.

Toll had been on paid leave after she was quoted in the news media as saying that a state senator and his mortgage brokerage were under investigation for alleged rule violations. The Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) denied that the senator was under investigation.
