The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation as established by the real estate industry. This 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.

Buyers who hire an ABR via a contract between the Buyer and the Broker receive personalized agent representation throughout the home-buying process that strives to ensure a fair and ethical transaction.  Buyers technically have an advantage when using an ABR, because the buyer's representative seeks to protect the home buyer, not the seller. An ABR also helps the buyer by researching homes available on the market, suggesting a realistic offer price and assisting with the negotiations process.

Frequently asked:  Do I need a Door County Buyer Agent?  Short answer:  if you're considerting making one of the most important investments in your life, ask your Broker about Accredited Buyer Represenation.  Contact MaryKay Shumway to assist as your Door County Buyer Agent.
