Real Estate Agent with Platinum Realty 1999090686
I was fortunate to earn my ABR designation in 2001, and it is one I highly suggest to newer Realtors, and experienced Realtors, too.  Following is information (gathered from the REBAC website) on the Accredited Buyer Representative designation and REBAC, The Real Estate Buyers Agent Council.  Hopefully, this information will be helpful to others considering furthering their education... 

The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. 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. 

The Real Estate Buyers Agent Council, REBAC, was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer representation skills and services. An affiliate of THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS since 1996, REBACs membership now numbers well over 40,000 and is the worlds largest organization of real estate professionals concentrating on buyer representation. Members who meet all course and professional experiential requirements are awarded the ABR (Accredited Buyers Representative) and/or ABRMSM (Accredited Buyers Representative Manager) designation(s). Both are the only designations of their type recognized by NAR.

The ABR designation is geared towards agents who wish to enhance their buyer representation skills, and provides proof to prospective buyer-clients of their proficiency at servicing the special needs of buyers. The ABRMSM designation, on the other hand, is intended for owners, brokers and managers who have or intend to incorporate buyer representation into their companys service offerings. Developed in partnership with the Real Estate Brokerage Managers Council of THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS, the education program includes the ABR Designation course as a requirement, though not the designation itself.

REBAC supports its members through a variety of benefits and publications designed to keep members informed of developments in buyer representation and to assist members improve their business. REBAC also promotes the advantages of professional buyer representation to consumers.
