What Is An ABR®? How Can An ABR® Help Me?
The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, to real estate practitioners who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
What makes an ABR® the right choice for you?
In addition to knowing the dynamics of the local market, REALTORS® with the ABR® designation understand the special needs of buyers. They have additional knowledge and experience that takes them a step beyond an agent who only concentrates on listing property for sellers. An ABR® can provide you with valued assistance throughout the transaction and help you make informed decisions that will lead to a successful home purchase.
As an ABR®, I can help you:
üUnderstand your specific needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties to
formulate your personal real estate G O A L
üAssist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-qualify your mortgage)
üProvide current market knowledge (Buyer or Seller Market?)
üPreview and view properties for you
üAdvise you in writing a competitive offer
üHelp develop your negotiating strategy
üProvide a list of qualified vendors (inspectors, attorneys, lenders, etc.) for other
services you may need
üKeep track of every detail throughout the transaction — to closing and beyond
When you work with an ABR®, you'll be SERVED not SOLD
