Accredited Buyer’s Representative®
A designation from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the Accredited Buyer’s Representative® (ABR®) course is for real estate agents who wish to focus on working directly with buyer-clients at every stage of process in purchasing a home.
“This NAR designation is two days of intensive training on the process of working with buyers, managing their expectations, and successfully putting together offers on their behalf, whether they are representing them or not, either as single agents or transaction agents. This course is beneficial to newer agents that do not have experience working with buyers, as well as agents who have been working with buyers but have not necessarily been comfortable working with a buyer brokerage agreement.” — Joanne Chando, ABR instructor
This course provides valuable real estate education that elevates REALTORS® in the eyes of their buyers by assisting them in honing their selling skills and knowledge of the industry. In this course REALTORS® will learn:
1) Complete the two-day core designation course
2) Complete one of the ABR® elective courses®. Possible elective courses include:
3) Documentation of five completed transactions in which the student acted solely as a buyer representative.
4) Professional Affiliation
5) Pass the exam
6) Submit the designation application along with the documentation of five completed transactions. A certificate of completion for the elective of the student’s choice must also be submitted with the application.
