Is Refering a Buyer to Mexico Different from Refering to the U.S.?

Published on: Mar 20 2013 by Thomas Lloyd

SMexico real estateo, you have a buyer of yours asking about Mexico real estate.  Are there differences in referring a client to a broker in Mexico?


Yes and no.


First of all, let’s look at some of the points that are similar:

  • The buyer will, to some extent, associate their experience with their referred broker with the broker who referred them – you
  • You will want your client to have the best of service for various reasons
  • You will get a broker referral fee from the commission


Now, for some of the differences:


Professionalism is not as advanced in Mexico as it is in the U.S.  For this reason, you will need to invest a little more time to ensure that the broker you send your client to is a member of AMPI (Mexico’s professional association, affiliated with NAR) and holds other qualifications.


This will be a whole new experience for your client. Buying in Mexico entails additional steps, in addition to exploring a new city, new community and new culture.  Again, a compelling reason to be sure you find the right broker.


The bottom line is: if your client has asked you to help them find a broker in Mexico, it’s worth your while investing a little extra time and finding one who excels in professionalism and top level of service to your client.
