Cancun, Q.R. – In an attempt to further professionalize the state’s real estate services, a new council has been created.
To help further monitor real estate agents, the National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism (Canaco-Servytur) and the Mexican Association of Real Estate Professionals (AMPI) have created the Real Estate Council of Quintana Roo.
Pablo Alcocer Góngora, president of Canaco-Servytur Playa del Carmen, accompanied by James Tobin Cunningham, head of the AMPI, made the announcement at a recent press conference saying that the new council will provide professional order for both real estate agents as well as buyers and sellers in the state of Quintana Roo.
Alcocer Góngora says that in May of 2014 and in March of 2015, the Law on Provision of Real Estate Services and Regulations was created in order to provide legal certainty to domestic and foreign investors. He said this latest step will be promoted in the application of professionalism for those engaged in the real estate business sector.
Tobin Cunningham explained that the new council will also include an organized information system for real estate service users, since according to state records, there are more than 3,000 real estate agents in Quintana Roo.
The newly formed Real Estate Council of Quintana Roo is composed of 39 groups among housing agencies, public notary offices, delegations, AMPI, Canaco-Servytur, Canadevi, Appraisers, Architects and Engineers, hotel associations, universities and specialists in the field.
