Public Surveys - Canada / USA / International Real Estate

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 as real estate agents.

If you are thousands of miles away in another city or country and
need an agent that specializes in
non-resident property buyers / investments / relocations where would you start and how would you
choose that "one" particular 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 130,000 real estate agents in Canada according to
Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and there are well
1.4 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 real estate agents listed or referred by our company must
have extensive property buyer / investor and relocation experience.
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 the
Best of Both Worlds. Promark Preferred has done the important research. We are constantly expanding our Global
Search Network including
Affiliates Network to offer more comparison based options, services and specialists.

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

                                 PUBLIC SURVEY RESULTS:

how they would choose a real estate agent if they were considering buying property in another city or country:
