The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. ABR® education provides the expertise you need for an edge in serving today’s home buyers. Not only do ABR® designees earn more, but member benefits such as publications, marketing tools, a referral network and other resources, help maintain that edge.
This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) who meets the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
