CEI President, Manuel Negrão, joined ARK (Czech Republic Real Estate Association) at the 20 years birthday congress, on March 30th, 2011. Manuel Negrão had the opportunity to speak about the European real estate activity and how to stimulate the housing sector. As CEI President he strongly supported the development and introduction of the EN 15733, emphasizing the importance of common standards in Europe. "Fair rules of competition for all real estate agents in Europe are one of the main goals of the work of CEI. The EN 15733 standard which is the European standard with which property companies in member states must comply in order to ensure the security of consumers responds to that exact requirement, regulating a market that is based on the natural desire people have to own the home they live in.
This regulation which functions as a sort of lowest common denominator for quality in the services provided by professionals working in the real estate industry will make a positive difference and will help to promote those companies working in accordance with the values of freedom, the market economy and respect for citizens and consumers, as well as the very idea of the European Union itself", he said in his speech in the ARK conference in Prague.Ler em
