Do You Know What the ABR Designation Stands For?

 

ABR stands for Accredited Buyer's Representative. It is a designation awarded by the National Association of Realtors to agents who successfully complete the required courses and meet the other qualifications of becoming an Accredited Buyer's Representative.

Only 15% of all Realtors have obtained the ABR designation. 

An ABR represents the home buyer in a real estate transaction, and guides them step-by-step throughout the home buying process. 

Watch this short video that further explains buyer representation:

 

As an Accredited Buyer's Representative, it would be my pleasure to assist you with your Brandon MS home purchase.

If we don't know what it stands for, buyers sure won't.

Pat I knew what ABR stood for, but did not realize that only 15% of all Realtors have obtained it.

Ronald DiLalla - Agreed. Find your niche and run with it!

David Barr - Exactly! And giving myself a plug while I'm at it. 

George Souto - I knew the percentage was lower than 25%. The statistic came from the 2013 Member Survey of NAR.

Less than 15% is good company to be in.  Buyers need someone that can help with their unique needs, thanks for sharing.

Good morning Pat. I have a number of Realtor partners that have the designation, all of them are very good at what they do. Just like you, they really know how to represent their buyers.

Thank you, Joe Petrowsky.  Once a buyer understands they have an advocate, they WANT to work with an Accredited Buyer's Rep.
