What is a REALTOR® ?
The terms salesperson, sales agent, Broker and REALTOR® are often used interchangeably, but have very different meanings.
As a pre-requisite to sell real estate in Mexico, a person must be federally certified and licensed by the State in which they work. That person is referred to as a Broker. In compliance with the Real Estate Services Law for the State of Quintana Roo (2014), these individuals are referred to as "Asesor Inmobiliario con Matricula" (Real Estate Adviser, Real Estate Consultant or Real Estate Broker with registration).
Federal Certification is carried out by several goverment appointed independent certifying entities, which are regulated by CONOCER. Standards of capacity and experience are evaluated, and must be met in order to get a Federal Certification. Upon Certification is issued, certified individuals should apply for state license and become registered services provideres in the State, pursuant the Real Estate Services Law for the state of Quintana Roo enacted in 2014
Salespersons, sales promoters, sales agents, listing agents, or any other similar term, are individuals who lack Federal Certification and State registration. These individuals are basically sales promoters, that often assist a Broker. These agents and promoters hold no legal capacity to act as a Broker by themselves. It is not recommended to engage in a work relationship with a salesperson without an actual Broker who stands behind him; both supervising and being responsible of the sales agent's performance and your legal safety until the total completion of the real estate transaction. By definition, the completion of a Broker's responsibility is deemed completed upon the moment Buyer receives duly executed-recorded title, and Seller receives agreed payment. The unhappy ending stories that often circulate in social media are in most cases the result of salespersons impersonating Brokers, and well, the results are unpredictable and often dissapointing. Make sure that you ask your salesperson to show you his Broker credentials, or to inform you who his/her broker is. Make sure that you meet the broker and have the Broker be involved in the transaction. Otherwise, we recomended you to find an registered Broker or an Attorney, either of whom will protect and duly represent your interest. Here is the list of Brokers in Cozumel.
REAL ESTATE COMMERCE DEGREE
In addition to Federal Certification and State Registration, Brokers can also hold a university degree in Real Estate Commerce. Since 2008, and as of November 2017, the only individual in Cozumel that holds this university degree designation works in Cedral TEAM. This designation sets this team member apart from a Broker. It puts him in the same level as a Real Estate Attorney and under full professional liability in case of misrepresentation or malpraxis, pursuant the Federal and State General Law of Profesions (Ley General de Profesiones)
Cedral Team members have opted to become memers of the National Association of REALTORS® throuth its international Chapter NAR INTERNATIONAL. By doing so, they subscribe to NAR Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice, which are familiar to our North American base of clients.
