Public Surveys - Canada / USA / International

Too Many Agents Makes the Selection Process Difficult!

Whether the housing market is stabilizing or not, it seems pretty clear
that there are still too many people in the USA, Canada and in other
countries trying to make a living selling houses.

If you are thousands of miles away in another city or country and
need a knowledgeable real estate agent that specializes in foreign
property investors or
relocations where would you start and how would you choose that "one" agent? The real estate industry is over
saturated with real estate agents worldwide. Public surveys indicate
that most home buyers, especially
non-resident property buyers,
would prefer to work with an experienced specialist real estate agent.

Couple searching for a real estate agent
There are over "one hundred thousand" real estate agents in Canada
according to the
Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA)
and well
"one million" real estate agents in the USA according to the
National Association of Realtors (NAR).
Mexico, Central America,
the Caribbean and Europe collectively have "hundreds of thousands"
of real estate agents. Some are part time agents and hold other jobs.

All of the agents approved by us "must have foreign property investor
experience or relocation experience" to be listed by our company and
e will only list "a maximum of three" agents per their geographical
service area / level worldwide.
We also do free searches to locate
specialist agents
in any country who are not yet listed on this site.

Choosing the right agent is difficult
Picking One Real Estate Agent Can Be Difficult!

We research thousands of agents and their websites so you don't have to. Today's buyers and sellers are turning away
from the MLS and going with specialist real estate agents "shortlisted" by Promark Preferred.
Choosing the right agent
can make all the difference in the world. Read our international Agent Checklist and our Reviews and Testimonials.

We have combined two major industries, the global travel industry and the international real estate industry, to offer you
The Best of Both Worlds which includes Promark Preferred and Promark Hotels.
We are constantly expanding our
Global Search Network including
Affiliates Network to offer more comparison based options and services.

Although this survey was done across Canada, similar preferences would also apply to home buyers located across the
USA and many other countries. These buyers want a specialist real estate agent with non-resident buyer experience
and will do online comparison shopping to find the right professional. We are a free to use "Specialists Only" network.

                                         PUBLIC SURVEY RESULTS:
