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).
Brian and his team exceeded our expectations and had to put up with a some difficult situations (through no fault of theirs) while we sold the home. They also managed to sell our home while we were completely absentee – in California. They shot and produced a FANTASTIC marketing video, which I think really helped and everyone at the Ladd Group was responsive and helpful. Highly recommended to anyone looking to buy/sell in Bend OR area. -Tim
We first became acquainted with Brian 12 years ago while building our home in Arvada, Colorado by Bruttany Builders. Brian was always willing to make sure all of our concerns were addressed and remedied. We began looking for a second home in Steamboat Springs, Colorado 3 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised that Brian was a Real Estate Agent in the area and to be honest that is why we pursued the search at that time. Brian made himself available on the week-ends that we would be traveling…
My representative at the Ladd Group was Steve LaCrosse and in spite of talking with numerous firms and sales agents, he was the only one I felt comfortable enough to trust to represent me in a significant financial transaction. The characteristics that distinguish Steve from many is that he actually cares, listens, communicates honestly and with his intelligence, this allowed him to meet and overcome adversity in stride. After listening to my rambling about what I wanted and didn’t want, he synt…
Steve LaCrosse at the Ladd Group is simply THE BEST realtor!!! Steve helped us find our dream condo in Bend, and literally made the process smooth, seamless and effortless. Steve took care of so many things because we were moving to Bend long distance and even after the purchase, Steve was helping us with the little things to make sure we were settled in and comfortable. Steve went above and beyond and definitely went the extra mile for us!! We give Steve our highest recommendation, and would re…
Steve LaCrosse from the Ladd Group was a spectacular real estate agent. He took the time to get to know who we were and what we needed during the process. I felt like he cared about matching us up with the right property instead of just selling something. I’ve already recommended him to many people asking for agents who know the area from the view of a family member, not just that of a salesman.
Brian is genuine, honest and knowledgable agent who really cares about his clients.. I appreciate his integrity & character. Most of all I value that Brian seeks to assure that his clients are making a valuable great investment in their property selection.. I highly recommend Brian to anyone who is seeking a home or investment.. Thanks Brian from Adrian & Susan Reyes Frandsen in California..
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.
I have completed numerous transactions with Brian over the last few years. He is a true professional that can be counted on for his honesty and integrity. His wealth of experience and dedication to his profession is unmatched. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with their real estate needs. -Anonymous
They are a class act for sure. We had bumps in the road during the buying process but Denise stood next to us every step of the way, I can not say enough about how great and how helpful she is!!”
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…
