Real Estate Agent in MexicoYesterday, I shared information about AMPI’s new agreement with NAR and the fact that this allows AMPI ASOCIADOS to use the Realtor logo. Today, I will look at the differences between ASOCIADOS and AFILIADOS and restrictions on the use of the Logo.


Per AMPI by-laws:

The ASOCIADO is:   a physical person who has a minimum of one year in the business, with a minimum of 40 hours of training in an institution recognized and approved by AMPI, and is recommended by another AMPI Asociado of a minimum of two years in the business (local requirements may vary).   Applicant must present an application signed and approved by the section president and must promise to abide by the by-laws and the AMPI Code of Ethics.   The ASOCIADO has voting rights in AMPI.  Current fees are 3,000.00 pesos to AMPI national, plus local fees. Local fees vary from chapter to chapter

Realtor_logoThe AFILIADO is: a physical person who is employed or working as an independent contractor (sales agent) under the supervision of an ASOCIADO.  The AFILIADO has NO voting rights at the national level and has NO membership with NAR through AMPI, therefore the AFILIADO cannot use the Realtor® logo in any way or form. ASOCIADOS have the responsibility to make sure that The Affiliates working under their sponsorship follow AMPIs guidelines in this regard AND not USE THE Realtor logo in any promotional materials of their own.
