Besides the required registration and certifications, there are also industry associations for estate agents in Spain. Each trade association has its own code of conduct and they offer training courses so that the estate agents’ knowledge remains up to date and keep on top of the latest developments.

Registered estate agents can be recognised by a red vignette, which they must display on their website and in their office, showing their registration number.
