real estate courses
does anyone know if in Punta Cana, Santo Domingo or on_line from the DR one can take real estate courses and get certified as an agent??????
Any info would be greatly appreciated
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?

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

NO relator certificate in the DR, just have to be a GOOD salesman
There was this thread on the topic of real estate licenses http://www.dr1.com/forums/real-estat...icense-dr.html still nothing has materialised.
I was also licensed in the U.S. and sold real estate for a few years.

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.
