What Does it Mean to be API Certified?

A new law recently passed in the Community of Valencia on Spain’s east coast which requires all estate agents to become officially registered in order to continue selling and renting properties.

Valencia estate agents must now fulfil several criteria and sit exams to prove that they are suitably qualified and insured in order to join the register.

This allows those looking to purchase a property in the Valencia region to easily identify a reputable company like Movehappy.

We are happy that our clients can feel safe in the knowledge that when they come to us they will be greeted with valuable knowledge, honesty, and integrity.
