Updated List of How Many Real Estate Practitioners are there in the Philippines as of February 13, 2012


Exactly how many real estate brokers, appraisers, and consultants are there in the Philippines right now (Feruary 13, 2012)?

We need to know if not just for curiosity, but also to know the exact point when the membership of the AIPO reached the so-called majority.

So to find the truth, we have gone over the published list of licensed RESPs (Real Estate Service Professionals) since 2009, and started to count (we have three board examination under the auspices of the PRC last year in  2011 for brokers, appraisers, and consultants – and those are also included here):

Grand Total (as of February 2, 2012 is: 15,437

Some minor points.

All those issued a license under a Board Resolution above – were those licensed under the so-called “grandfather clause” of RA 9646 specifically under Section 20. This privilege (for those previously licensed under the old DTI Memorandum No. 39) expired last July 31, 2011 and new aspirants must now take the board examination if they are qualified.

The total number of RESPs is 15,437, however the actual licensees maybe lower as some has not yet applied for a license, or their license is not release due to some reasons.

The bulk of the RESPs are as expected the real estate brokers at 81.8 %, followed by the appraisers at only 17.7 %. The consultants form a minuscule 0.5 % of the total.  However, many of them (just like yours truly) are also brokers, and appraisers – as those are the requirements for taking the board exam for consultants under RA 9646.

The assessors were counted in the appraisers’ column as their license are also as real estate appraisers.
