    Default Getting a Real Estate License

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any Real Estate Licensing courses here in the Dominican Republic, preferably, Santo Domingo. I am aware that most Real Estate agents are not licensed in the DR but I would like to be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Yes, it exists. Look in the yellow pages etc for the local association.

    The reason you don't here about it, is because the course is conducted in Spanish and most brokers/agents that deal with foreigners do not speak Spanish, so they don't or can't take the course. Plus it's not mandatory

    While on the topic, I have heard that if you would like be an agent with some companies, like Remax, that you have to pay a fee of about 100 000 pesos. Is there any truth to this? As for the liscense are there any advantages to having it?

    I'm thinking that real estate might be a good field for me when I return to the DR, I'm fluent in Spanish, Enlgish, French and Italian, I figure I could be a good match for just about any prospective buyer.

    I'm answering my own question but I found a place just in case others have the same question in the future.

    The Instituto Nacional de Formacion Inmobiliaria

    Instituto Nacional de Formacion Inmobiliaria

    They offer intensive real estate licensing courses. Supposedly, they were the first of any such institute in the country.

    Will keep looking for more.

    Whether licensed or not...
    applying some good/decent sales practices might go a long way -
    like follow-ups when promised... timely arrival & service

    Most are non-existent and infuriate buyers
