Iti agdama, maymaysa ti tignay dagiti akusado: kontraen ti plunder a kasoda. Saludsod: iti panangkontrada iti plunder case kadi ket mangitantan iti pannakaiparuar iti mandamiyento de aresto? Saankami nga abogado. Dikam masungbatan daytoy a sigida. Ngem maymaysa laeng ti turong ti utekmi... kas met ti turong ti utek dagiti umili.

Arasaas 2: no agbaluddan... mabalin nga agkuretret ti muging ni Napoles (bumaket); umingpis ti pispis ni Panday Bong; saanton a baby face ni Jinggoy ; ken ad-addanto kanon nga umuneg dagiti riles iti rupa ni lakay Johnny. Daytoy ket malaksid no mabalinda ti agpa-SPA wenno agpa-FACIAL ken agpa-Body Massage iti uneg ti selda. He he... no kasta ti mapasamak, awan dumadan iti damag nga adda convict a binisita ti maysa nga starlet ken dua a TV Dancers. Wow! Swak na swak, pards.

Registration of real estate salespersons

Roberto A. Capili
Real Estate Updates

STARTING this year, PRC (Professional Regulation Commission) announced the schedule of the initial registration for those who have qualified to be registered without examination as Real Estate Salespersons pursuant to Section 31, Article IV of R. A. 9646 and Board of Real Estate Service Resolutions approved by PRC. Qualified real estate salespersons/registrants whose applications have been approved may download their oath forms and bring this duly accomplished oath forms on June 18 – 20, 2014 at the PRC – Registration Division, PRC Office, Sampaloc, Manila. You may access their website: www.prc.gov.ph for more details.

What does this imply? PRC and the Professional Regulatory Board of Real Estate Service (PRB-RES) will have their hands full with this accreditation of real estate salespersons under the Real Estate Service Act (RESA) by virtue of Republic Act (R.A.) No. 9646. This is due to the fact that an expected 400,000 active real estate agents and salespersons who are currently in practice and aspiring sales agents will have to apply for legitimacy of their practice under the said real estate law under R. A. 9646.

Under the Implementing Rules and Regulations of RESA, real estate service practitioners include “Real Estate Salespersons.” A real estate salesperson is referred to as: a duly accredited natural person who performs service for, and in behalf of a real estate broker who is registered and licensed by the Professional Regulatory Board of Real Estate Service (PRB-RES) for and in expectation of a share in the commission, professional fee, compensation or other valuable consideration.” [Rule I, Sec. 3-g (5)]

No examination is required by real estate salespersons under RESA, but as a minimum requirement, the applicant must possess these qualifications:

1. Filipino citizen;

2. Must have completed at least two (2) years of college;

3. Must be of good moral character and must not have been convicted with any crime involving moral turpitude; and

4. Must have undergone training and seminars of at least twelve (12) credit units in real estate brokerage.

Principally, real estate salespersons are under the direct supervision and accountability of a real estate broker. As a sub-agent under the agency of a licensed real estate broker, the following are the limits and restrictions of the practice of a real estate salesperson:

1. Real estate salespersons cannot by themselves, become signatories to a written agreement involving a real estate transaction unless the real estate broker who had direct supervision and accountability over them is also a signatory thereto.

2. No real estate salesperson, either directly or indirectly, can negotiate, mediate or transact any real estate transaction for and in behalf of a real estate broker without first securing an authorized accreditation as a real estate salesperson for the real estate broker, as prescribed by PRB RES.

3. A real estate broker shall be guilty of violating the new real estate law for employing or utilizing the services of a real estate salesperson whom he/she has not secured the required accreditation from PRB RES prior to such employment.

4. No salesperson shall be entitled to receive or demand a fee, commission or compensation of any kind from any person, other than the duly licensed real estate broker who has direct control and supervision over him, for any service or work done by such salesperson in any real estate transaction.

What many seem to ignore is the vital role that real estate salespersons contribute to the well-being of the real estate business and industry. The unsung heroes of real estate are thrust in the background of the real estate service practice simply because their functions and responsibilities in real estate world are not given much importance.

With the enactment of the REAL ESTATE SERVICE ACT (RESA), real estate salespersons’ role and function in the real estate industry is given more life. This is because they shall be accredited, given recognition and are required to have their own professional licenses as real estate service practitioners by the PRB RES and PRC.

What is the nature of the job of a real estate salesperson? The new set-up under RESA and the real estate service practice calls for licensed real estate salespersons to be under a registered real estate broker. The broker will employ the real estate salesperson in his office and the company that is established, gives support in the salesperson’s undertaking and is obliged to supervise the activities and transactions entered into by the real estate salesperson in his employ. In return, the employed salesperson share in the income received by the real estate broker.

Almost all real estate salespersons are paid on commission (professional fees) basis, which result either from property and listings they sell or projects that they market. The essential point in his job is the undertaking that selling real estate depends on producing tangible results, that is, from sales generated. One of the real attractions of the occupation is that you can pursue your career in a manner that is compatible with your own interest, personality and values. Herein lies the challenge of the task.

As a start, the real estate salesperson should chart his career in real estate if he intends to be successful in this field. Success in real estate or any endeavour for that matter, does not come easy and in a short period of time. It takes years, lot of hard work, unending sacrifices, even frustrations, disappointments, and the need of continuing challenges to improve one’s craft. Financial rewards come from it and afterwards.

When I started my real estate career more than two decades ago, I started as a real estate agent with Sabater Realty. From there, it evolved and went through the ladder of promotions to a sales supervisor, zone manager and at the same time a sales trainor and then I decided to take the real estate brokers exams in 1987. It was also a roller coaster ride in the course of my real estate career, and success did not come easy. From there however, I have a decided to chart a serious career in real estate sales and my professional practice took off from there.

With the registration of real estate salespersons, we expect to develop and nurture a corps of technically competent, responsible and respected professional real estate service practitioners whose standards of practice and service shall be globally competitive and will promote the growth of the real estate industry.
