    There is no certification in real estate. Just call yourself a realtor and you're a realtor.

    Well where does one learn to jack up prices against their clients, the in/outs of pre-construction ponzi schemes, how to register false titles & not sell any actual Real Estate then?

    No certification, no regulation, no exclusive listings, no code of ethics .... I used to be a licensed realtor in the US; would never think of going into real estate here. It's like any sales job, sell car, sell houses, sell whatever you can.

    For that you have to hire a lawyer and pay a judge and fiscal to be a "consultant."

    Suggest you send a pm to John Boyter. There was some talk of regulation but I am not sure how far it actually got!

    I was also licensed in the U.S. and sold real estate for a few years.

    Here's the down side to selling in DR.

    No code of ethics
    If there were a code of ethics, it would likely not be enforced.
    No initial training, and no requirement for it
    No periodic training
    No multiple listing service
    No market analysis
    No "realtor" analysis, a subset in an MLS database to verify sales of agents.
    No title insurance, or if available for new projects, it is limited.

    When I return to the U.S. I'll sell houses again, but after doing my table top analysis of how the business works in DR I could never get involved with it.

    Well I would say this is a great business opportunity for someone with a background in real estate and ethical practices. Word will eventually get around that one is a serious person and up front. I also expect companies here like Century 21 have their own internal standards.
