The Oregon Real Estate Forms (OREF) library has all the transactional and advisory forms to enable you to easily conduct all your business in legal, standardized way and result in administrative time savings. To use OREF forms, each broker must subscribe to an annual forms license. When you are properly licensed to use OREF forms, your name will appear as the licensee at the bottom of the OREF forms.

OREF has authorized zipLogix, dotloop, and Redfin to host OREF forms for use with their respective transaction management platform provided that each user of such platform is also personally licensed by OREF to use OREF forms.

Your annual OREF forms subscription provides you with the following additional benefits:

  • Subscription of $198/year becomes $89/year with becoming a member of COAR.
  • Portland-based customer service
  • Enhanced website resources: information, education and training
  • Realtor® association and MLS partnerships
  • MLS technology and trade fair presentations

 

As a member of COAR, you will have access to Oregon Real Estate Forms, LLC. which was formed in 1997 by three associations. Their mission is to profitably develop, control and market high quality user friendly, standardized real estate forms for use by all Oregon Real Estate Licensees and to generate other related revenue streams. OREF, LLC's Forms Committee is comprised of legal counsel, a representative from the escrow industry and nine broker representatives from around the state. The committee meets monthly from February through October to review forms suggestions, revisions and statutory issues.

Throughout the year, the committee thoroughly reviews, discusses and votes on any forms changes or amendments that brokers submit. After the last meeting for the year, the recommendations are forwarded to the OREF Board for final review and approval. Final proofreading and beta testing are then the precursor to the 51 transactional forms being advanced to zipForm® zipLogix®, uploading them on the Oregon Forms Library software platform available by January of the following year. For more information on OREF forms, please click here.

The Young Professionals Network (YPN) helps young real estate practitioners become more business savvy by hosting regular networking events, communicating with other YPN members, and sharing tips and tricks.

REALTOR® Magazine launched the Young Professionals Network (YPN) in 2006 as an outgrowth of the popular “30 under 30” feature with the goal to help the younger generation of REALTORS® build a stronger link with the real estate industry and expand networking and business opportunities.

The Central Oregon Association of REALTORS® has created a YPN chapter at the local level. This is a great opportunity for members of all ages to network and build their businesses, as well as make friends within the real estate industry.  We offer several networking events throughout the year planned by the YPN Committee.  All COAR members are invited to attend regardless of age or time in the industry.

COAR welcomes sponsors for these events either by providing financial assistance for the event, donating prizes, or providing function space.  If you are a COAR member and would like additional information on co-sponsoring a YPN event, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
