Register to Vote!

It’s the best thing you can do for your business.

Now more than ever, REALTORS® voices need to be heard.

To increase REALTOR® participation and influence in the political process, the Otero County Association of REALTORS has launched a voter registration drive among our members.

While nearly 83 percent of all REALTORS® are registered to vote, we can do better!

If you know that you ARE NOT REGISTERED, and would like to REGISTER TO VOTE, it has never been easier. Just go to  and register. It’s that simple.

If you ARE REGISTERED to vote, congratulations! We would appreciate your help in keeping our files up to date by going to and confirming your registration.

The Otero County Association of REALTORS® is proud to join with the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® on this important civic effort to increase the number of registered voters and voter participation across the country.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the OCAOR office at (575) 437-5195.  <a href=”” data-mce-href=””><img alt=”Register to Vote: REALTOR Party” border=”0″ src=”” data-mce-src=”” /></a>



OCAOR Ombudsman Program Overview

Ombudsman Program

The Ombudsman Program in its simplest definition is an informal telephone ‘mediation’ process.  It is helpful in addressing and solving complaints from the public and has proven to be an effective tool in resolving REALTOR® to REALTOR® conflicts as well.  Like a mediator, an Ombudsman is a neutral facilitator who assists parties in finding options, approaches and available resources to resolve disputes.  This free program is available to OCAOR members, their clients and customers.

We have two (2) certified Ombudsman within the Otero County Association of REALTORS.

To access the Ombudsman Services call 575-437-5195 or email
