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 at the Ladd Group sold our home in Bend while we were in California. They took care of everything and we had a few hurdles pop up with the prepping of the house for sale, which they took in stride and worked around. Brian is very responsive and everyone on the team seems to do a super job. We would highly recommend the Ladd Group. On top of all that, after our property closed, we received a very nice gift from Brian in the mail – and we’ve NEVER received a “thanks for doing b…
Brian excelled in all aspects of what I would expect from a realtor. The bottom line is that he successfully sold our home for full asking price in a mere two days. He is professional, communicates step-by-step the process, and made me feel confident that our home was going to be given his full attention. His took great pictures and uses high quality marketing materials. I highly recommend (and I have already to family) working with Brian and would do again. -Anonymous

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
Lily Dupont Leedom is A FIVE star broker without exception. Our process was without error or issue from opening escrow to closing. Ever appointment was met on time, and every process was explained, initiated and followed though by Lily. This is not our first home purchase by far, but Lily was the most accommodating and experienced agent we have dealt with. Highest recommendations given here.
We bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Awbrey Butte, Bend, OR. Alice listened to our needs and wishes and found the perfect neighborhood. We have recently moved in and could not be happier! I would recommend her to all my friends.
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…
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.
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…
