REBAC and deceptive advertising

I took the ABR course and hold that designation. A claim  REBAC (Real Estate Buyer Agents Counsel) makes though, is  intentionally deceptive. The claim: "Not all buyers' representatives are equal. Only a buyer's rep who has earned the Accredited Buyer's Representative designation has made the extra effort to raise the bar, with additional training and experience. If you work with an ABR®, you can feel confident that you'll receive the highest level of buyer-representation services".  Specifically the claim that you can feel confident you'll receive the highest level of buyer-representatin services is deceptive and misleading. Consumers should not feel such confidence based on using an agent with the ABR designation. 

In fact, the ONLY membership that can convey that confidence is membership in NAEBA, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents. MOST, ABRs also represent sellers and can and do quite easily work as dual agents. That precludes the confidence REBAC asserts you can feel.

ABRs that are members of NAEBA NEVER represent sellers. If you want justifiable confidence that your'll receive the highest level of buyer-representation services - use a NAEBA member to help you buy your next home.  

To find a member of NAEBA go to http://www.naeba.org .

Designations have meaning and they are useful.  Have a very good New Year.

They absolutely do have meaning "Elite" .  However, that meaning  is diminished when meaning is ascribed to them which they do NOT have.

Paul~ there needs to be something substantial behind the designation or the designation means nothing...Great blog!!!! And by the way, "Pasa" is a living nightmare that's a paid bone head!

Paul~ please be very careful on that other site...The Rose from Livingston NJ is a witch for sure and worse are the nut jobs in the hate group that bash others....It's a total one way street at that stupid site- and all they do is rip "us" and the "public" off......

Thanks for the heads up Jon.  I don't think I noticed "The Rose" but when I go back (probably not till tomorrow) I'll check.

Paul~ what a joke, Debbie is way out of line, her online antics are a complete nightmare. I am sorry you have had to deal with such BS, hopefully "karma" catches up to her and hits her square in the face.....You'll notice she only acts that way on that website, any where else she gets booted on her A$$...

I'm not worried about it Jon, but thanks for the concern.  I try to just be factual (as I see it) without putting words in people's mouths.  Hopefully I am usually successful.  I don't wish her or any others ill will - I do sometimes wonder what their motivation is.

Paul~ no problem at all...I think her motivation plus the websites motivation is a joke gone bad to worse, you and many others find that type of hate on that site from that group..

 

Btw: online behavior is super important- "DR's last comments" is the perfect example of what NOT to do...And your "website" and her "opinion of it".....WOW!
