An important criteria to look for in a real estate firm is professional affiliation. The National Organization of Mexican Realtors (AMPI) is active locally, and membership in this group is considered essential. Many of our realtors have direct affiliation with the National Association of Realtors (NAR) in the U.S. and are members of its International Real Estate Section. To ensure the highest level of service, professionalism and ethics, brokers and their agents should be affiliated with these organizations. Owner/broker Jaime Niembro is a Certified International Property Specialist and a member of AMPI (Mexico’s Professional Real Estate Association).
