As I remember the law was changed and one dont need to be licensed for real estate,just like some states in US dont require a license for commercial realtors

That's true, but there are so many licensed agents that it would be harder to find clients if he doesn't have one. Who'd want to do business with an unlicensed agent.

@ Allanmz1, here's a link to the course you need to complete in order to qualify for a license. You're very unlikely to find one conducted through English though.

Me,I never checked any realtors license ever in my life.Realtor just shows you the property and his/her responsibility ends there(of course with commission).The buyer and their notariuz has to do the homework.Infact I am buying one commercial on Towarowa and just asked the seller for a clean chit from spodzelnia,and tax department and the notariuz is finding out if there is any loan on it.All work the agent did was showed the property and came to the preliminary deal to the notariuz and will be there when the final deed will be signed and get his 1% commission.

Agree that it's fairly meaningless and that the agent generally does nothing for their fee. In Warsaw, the agent often doesn't even know the local market that well. They're often young and inexperienced having come from a general sales background with no expertise in real estate - but having said that, if somebody is looking to start up in business as an estate agent and has no contacts, then Mr/Ms Average who wants to sell their house and finds his nice website, would probably prefer to deal with an agent who has a license. In any case, whether he has a license or not all agents need third party liability insurance.

Most dont,and most also work for some real estate company and always hungry to make a deal out of there company and I mean including some from reputable agencies.

I am sure as a business everybody needs that.Even English teachers working independently should have but I doubt they do.

Maybe,but certainly not me.I have bought and sold over 23 times in Poland and also rented through an agent plenty of times but never knew or cared if the agent was licensed or not

Also it depends he wants to deal with commercial or residentials.


I am glad that as an American,you are planning to do something better and respectful unlike them immigrant trash low lifes Brit English Teachers.I also suggest you to open or join a commercial real estate agency,residentals are a dog work.

There are plenty of American investors who would like to invest in Poland where the returns could go up to 10% also still when in States you will be lucky to get 5/6% and anchor properties will be around 3% and the taxes are way lower in Poland still.
