Jürgen Michael Schick became the first estate agent in Germany to gain DIN EN 15733 certification for real estate services in the investment property sector in October 2010.
The DIN EN 15733 standard governs the quality of a real estate agent's services and an agent's personal conduct. This is why this standard is so different from ISO 9001. The DIN standard certifies the important, neutral foundation of the relationship between an estate agent and their clients. The German and European standards institutions are planning for this relatively new standard to become the seal of quality for the real estate industry.
