Crete Journal, February 2006
Clients change, times change, and technologies change
are delighted to announce our membership of SY.ME.NO.X (pronounced
SI-men-och), the Chania Real Estate Agents Association. In order to
remain in the Association - which now has over 50 members - members
have to be fully licensed, obey a strict code of conduct, use proper
documentation, and provide a high level of service to buyers and sellers.
The Association provides members with the latest information on property
law and other property and tax-related matters; regular seminars to
stay up to date with the current situation; and enjoyable social events
to make new friends and form co-operative arrangements, to everyone’s
It’s a three-way relationship - we all benefit from other member’s
experiences, brain-storming sessions and seminars. Our own small contributions
hopefully help other members. And clients benefit from the greatly
improved level of professionalism and services.
In a booming real estate market where many unlicensed agents work without
registration, offices or controls - often to the detriment and financial
loss of foreign clients - the aim of the Association is to strengthen
the professional and responsible culture in the industry; protect our
clients; weed out the pirates; and actively promote and cooperate with ΣΕΚ (SEK) – the
national Greek Real Estate Agents Association.
We are proud to have been accepted as members, and would like to thank
all the agencies and committee members who sponsored our membership.
The very warm welcome we received from existing members was completely
unexpected and greatly appreciated.
