What is AMPI? Why is the Pacifico Property Team AMPI accredited?
And what does it mean for you – our valued clients looking to buy and / or sell property in Riviera Nayarit?
AMPI is a non-governmental, non-profit association that has evolved since its inception in 1956. AMPI advances through the vision of its different Members, and Board of Advisors, with the single initiative of professionalizing the Real Estate Industry in Mexico and enacting a standard code of conducts, ethics and values.
Each member Realtor must take an exhaustive program and pass a final exam as administered by AMPI. Thereafter, each AMPI accredited Realtor, must maintain their certification annually.
NOTE however, unlike the U.S. and Canada, accreditation by a governing body (like AMPI) is not mandatory to conduct activity as a Realtor in Mexico. As such, you will encounter many Realtors in Mexico who choose not to join AMPI.
What does this mean for you as a client of Pacifico Property? We choose to heighten our credibility and mandate all Pacifico Property Realtors become AMPI accredited and maintain their annual certification. In addition, ONLY AMPI accredited Realtors have access to MLS Listings. This provides our Sellers with a much broader reach throughout Riviera Nayarit to a vast, proven network of Realtors in an effort to sell their home quickly and for top dollar. For our buyers, it extends our reach and inventory of properties at our disposal to better suit your needs.
If you are involved in any Real Estate transaction in Mexico, be sure to ask your agent for their AMPI registration card. This will give you peace of mind you are dealing with a knowledgeable, professional agent, that conducts business within the highest ethical standards in the industry.
