This article was recently posted regarding upcoming licensing and education for real estate agents in Mexico – something the national real estate board (AMPI), has been working hard to obtain for years.
A milestone and historic event occurred in Mexico real estate this August. Recently, the AMPI association was able to implement a new degree in the Mexican universities and obtain the classification of a new professional license for Mexico Real Estate professionals. The new university degree is being offered as an option in universities in response to the Mexican authority’s concerns that improved standards and better training should be required for real estate consultants and professionals in Mexico. Fernando González Salazar, Director of the Professional License Department of AMPI pointed out, “The market and clients demand true professionals, specialists in real estate with recognized studies and a professional license authorized by a federal government body.”
The new professional title is officially authorized and administered by the SEP (Secretary of Public Education), and comes in response to the request from the consumer market. The title is offered through a combination of a professionally applied exam of high security – and the requisites of demonstrating ample experience in the industry. Also, the title can be obtained from studying 4 years of courses at several universities selected throughout Mexico.
A follow-up phone call to Tere Kimball, president of the real estate association in Riviera Nayarit, confirmed that this is in fact in process.
