What is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative?
WHY USE AN ABR®
Buying a home is no small matter. Besides being the largest financial transaction you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. There are many good reasons to work with a qualified real estate professional—especially a trained professional who has earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, representing best-in-class buyer services.
When you look for an ABR® before you look for a home, you’ll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. And you’ll be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Plus, a REALTOR® who has an ABR® designation also has an established track record, with proven experience in representing the concerns of homebuyers.
The ABR® designation is awarded through the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council, or REBAC, which was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer-representation skills and services. REBAC is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

My agent, Alice, was very knowledgeable in every aspect of purchasing my new home. I appreciated her attention to details that I would of perhaps overlooked. Buying a new home can be stressful, but with Alice it was a fun and smooth transition. I have recommended her to others and will use her in the future for any real estate purchases.
Bryan Hilts was profoundly attentive and effective at getting us our second home that we desired for a real estate investment. We are so pleased with the home, location and of course price in such a ridiculously competitive market. Unlike many real estate agents, Bryan really listened to our needs and didn’t waste our time showing us houses that did not meet our requirements or were not in our price range. I am grateful for his expertise in making the whole experience a lot more easier
Bryan Hilts, a part of the Ladd Group of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty, was an outstanding help to us in purchasing our home in Bend. We worked together for the better part of a year while we were still living in the Hillsboro area. He helped us explore most of the areas in and around Bend, refine our wants, needs, likes, dislikes, pluses and minuses of different areas we were interested in. He has a vast knowledge of Central Oregon which was a great help to us. Bryan is a very respons…
We listed our house with the Ladd Group and they sold it in a day. Everybody on the team (Brian, Kim, and Denise) gave excellent support throughout the process. These people know what they’re doing.
We had an amazing experience with the Ladd Group. They were incredibly knowledgable of the local market and presented excellent data to help formulate the price point on our home. With them we were able to sell our home in 12 days, at an above asking price with multiple offers. Steve LaCrosse worked most directly with us and also helped us find our current home in addition to selling our home. He was accessible, hardworking and always had our vision and needs in mind. We highly highly recommend!…
From our initial appointment, through the marketing & sales strategy discussions, to our eventual close, Brian and his entire team at Ladd Group where professional, thoughtful, and above all else, available to help us through a very challenging sales cycle. It’s important to understand that our home was in a middle-tier market price range that made Brian’s job of finding us a qualified buyer very difficult. Brian helped us stay calm and reasonable in our thinking and actions as we struggled t…
Working with Brian to find a new home for us was a great experience in all aspects. Brian listened well to our selection criteria, and always quickly responded to our many questions. We knew we were in very good and experienced hands with his extensive knowledge of the local real estate market. Brian’s completely open style and pleasant personality make him a top choice. Brian obviously loves his job and the results he gets for his clients show his dedication and commitment. HIGHEST RECOMMENDAT…
We recently moved to Bend and started looking for our new home. Erin Martin was one of the few brokers we contacted, however she was unique in that she intuitively understood what we were seeking and appreciated our exacting requirements. Actually Erin was the only broker that suggested we also look at new construction as a way to avoid purchasing something that we might feel would require extensive remodeling. She was right on the money! When we decided on the home we wanted it was still in the…
We had a great experience working with Bryan Hilts an associate of Brian Ladd. Bryan is very knowledgeable and patient. Very professional. We looked at a broad range of homes in several different neighborhoods to get a feel for Bend and the activities associated with each neighborhood. I would recommend Bryan and anticipate continuing to do business with him.
