The Accredited Buyer Representative® (ABR) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. The coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate BUYER’S AGENT Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS® who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
Getting Your ABR Designation
Four (4) requirements must be met to attain and use the ABR designation:
- Successful completion of the two-day ABR Designation Course, including an 80% passing grade on the exam.
- Successful completion of one of the electives, including an 80% passing grade on the exam, within three (3) years of completing the ABR Designation Course.
- Documentation verifying five (5) completed transactions in which you acted solely as a buyer representative (no dual agency). Any transactions closed prior to taking the ABR® Designation Course or closed within three years afterwards completing the ABR Designation Course are eligible for credit.
- Membership in good standing in the Real Estate BUYERS AGENT Council and the National Association of REALTORS.
The overall goals of the 2-day ABR Designation course are to educate and prepare buyer's reps to provide the kind of service and fidelity to buyers that sellers have always enjoyed, and to offer methods for building your buyer representation business. You will examine the evolution of buyer representation, agency, relationships, building and maintaining a buyer representation business, office policy, disclosure and informed consent, conflicts of interest, reducing liability, and negotiating. Together this information creates a comprehensive guide to help you become an effective, efficient, and profitable buyer's representative.
