Q: How to find a realtor in Guilin?

I'm engaged to a wonderful woman in Guilin.  Though she is moving here to the US to marry me and will live here, she is interested in purchasing an apartment or flat at home.  I want to help her and of course get an idea of the prices there since Guilin will be home for both of us as well.  Websites is a good first step for research and any help in finding a site is appreciated.  So far, my search only comes up with vacation rentals.  The one site I found when I was in Guilin doesn't come up on my browser (Firefox) for some reason.  Thanks.

First, I will tell you how to do it, it will involve extensive usage of Google Translate and Baidu.  I do assume you are familiar with Google Translate, where to find it and its usage.  Baidu is a Chinese search engine at http://ww.baidu.com.   Type "apartments for sale in Guilin" at Google Transale, change to Chinese.  Open Baidu and copy and paste the Chinse translation  and hit the blue botton.  Once it shows you the search results, go to the top and copy and paste address to Google translate now from Chinese to English.  Click on the translation on the right side and the same page from Baidu will show hopefully translated to English.  As you click on individual items, they should also show hopefully in English.

Now, real estate people in Chyina do not work as they do back home. Here, you must pay a fee (from 50 to 100 Rmb per apartment shown) to be shown an apartment, and most of the time will not really be one matching your needs or wants. Besides, since the more they get from you for the apartment, the more they get, there is not a real desiure to bargain for a deal. Very frustrating, at least for me. Also, in China for a foreigner to be allowed to own an apartment, must reside in China for at least 9 of the last 12 months prior to the deed signature and transfer of ownership takes place. This will mean that only your better (or future) better half name will be on the deed, and if the marriage does not work, you will loose everything. Not a wise idea, seen too many friends sued for divorce after the Gree4n Card is granted, and had to settle without the proiperty in China included in the settlement.
I am not saying your intended will do this, but also do not walk into it blindly either. Be aware, be wise, protect yourself too just in case.
Wish you luck and a happy ending. I do know two couples who did as you intend, and they are still married and hapopy today after 5 years. I also know many who got the shaft too.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
