What is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative?


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
