Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC) - I am an ABR
Buying a home may be the largest and most complex financial transaction you ever undertake. If you are ready to buy a home, would you prefer to work with the most qualified real estate professional you can find?
As an Accredited Buyers Representative, I have gone through additional training, have proven experience representing buyers and that extra edge you have been looking for. I am your ABR.
What makes an ABR the right choice for you?
The ABR designation is only awarded to licensed real estate professionals who complete specialized training that gives them the edge in understanding a buyer perspective and protecting and promoting their buyer-clients interests. Before earning the ABR designation, buyers reps must also demonstrate proven experience in representing buyers. Further, they are committed to maintaining their professional edge by staying current on the latest issues and trends in buyer representation.
In addition to knowing the dynamics of the local market, REALTORS with the ABR designation understand the special needs of buyers. They have additional knowledge and experience that takes them a step beyond an agent who only concentrates on listing property for sellers. An ABR can provide you with valued assistance throughout the transaction and help you make informed decisions that will lead to a successful home purchase.
As an ABR, I can help you:
Understand your specific needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties
Assist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-qualify your mortgage)
Preview and/or accompany you in viewing properties
Advise you in formulating your offer
Help you develop your negotiating strategy
Provide a list of qualified vendors (inspectors, attorneys, lenders, etc.) for other services you may need
Keep track of every detail throughout the transaction to closing and beyond
Not all buyers representatives are equal. Only a buyers representative who has earned the Accredited Buyers 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 will receive the highest level of buyer-representation services.
The Miracle Home® Program, exclusive to RE/MAX LLC., allows a RE/MAX Associate to make a donation on behalf of each transaction to Children's Miracle Network. The partnership underscores Sales Associate involvement in the communities in which they live and serve. RE/MAX Sales Associates are unique in that a majority of the donations received by Children's Miracle Network from RE/MAX are the result of Associates' hard work rather than solicited from customers.
