Real estate in the Yucatan Peninsula

In North America and Europe, looking for a Realtor might be more straightforward, sadly in the Yucatan ANYONE can be a realtor. No license, no tests, no background checks.

Even though there are certifications available, it is not required for real estate agents to be certified. So finding someone to make your dream come true, might be a little bit harder.

On the other hand, we both did the certification training and examination and we can tell you with honesty the amount of time that was focused on selling properties to foreigners: ZERO.

Over our career as real estate agents, we have helped several foreigners find and purchase their dream homes. We have learned through experience and also with the support of our great legal team.
