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 is the consummate professional and has a tremendous breadth of real estate knowledge. His background as a builder himself proved invaluable in multiple circumstances. When viewing a house Brian can instantly describe materials, construction methods and overall quality. His industry background allows him to articulate the pros and cons for a given neighborhood, house type and competitive environment. We had a protracted negotiation and Brian’s tenacity is what finally made the transactio…

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
I’ve worked with Erin on a number of transactions. She made the process simple and seamless in handling all the details. I stayed informed at each stage of the process but Erin handled everything taking any stress load off my shoulders. She is fun yet very professional. I would recommend anyone to work with her from first time home buyers/sellers to seasoned real estate investors.

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…
Brian is a joy to work with. His background in construction is a definite plus and helped us stay away from some questionable properties. He led us through the buying process and was always there to answer any questions or resolve issues that came up. His guidance and expertise were greatly appreciated and I would highly recommend him when choosing a realtor. -Anonymous
Brian has been very careful to listen to our home purchase desires and showed us appropriate possibilities. He took us through information steps that we had never thought of as we purchased a historic home. I would and have recommend Brian to anyone who is interested in real estate in the central Oregon territory. I appreciate his professionalism. -Susan Reyes
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.
