As a result of my last post I was asked about an ABR®, so I decided to answer this with another post (explaining what’s in it for you).
Why should you work with a REALTOR® with an Accredited Buyer’s Representative designation (ABR®) when you’re looking to buy your home?
The answer is really quite simple.
When you work with an ABR® accredited real estate professional, your interests as a buyer become the interests of your ABR®. That’s the business of your ABR®: working with buyer-clients like you to help make the home-buying experience go as smoothly as possible.
With specialized training that focuses on you, the homebuyer, to help guide you successfully through what could be the most complicated transaction in your life, an ABR® offers the best representation available to help you:
– Define what you want and need in a home
– Learn about important neighborhood resources and market information
– Find the home that best meets your wants and needs
– Formulate your offer
– Develop your negotiation strategy
– Keep track of all the details throughout the entire transaction—to closing and beyond
The ABR® designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC), and is the only designation of its type recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®.
Established in 1988 and now numbering more than 30,000 members throughout North America, REBAC is the world’s largest organization of real estate professionals specializing in buyer representation.
Being amongst the first in Canada (of the over 18,000 REALTORS® in BC, only 29 are accredited to date) to attain an ABR® and SRES® is a part of my commitment of bringing added value to clients who choose me to represent them.
When looking to buy a home, remember to look for an ABR® first to bring you home.
