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).
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
My wife and I could not have been more pleased with the work that Brian and the Ladd Group performed with the sale of our home, and the purchase of our new one! Not only was the listing of our home really well done, but the execution was incredibly impressive. The house sold in one week for over asking! Our needs were somewhat complex as well, with the sale/purchase simultaneous, and Brian’s teammate Lily Leedom worked daily with us to find our new home. Lily was diligent in learning our prefer…
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
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.
We began our search from out of state and Brian was exactly what we needed. He is a transplant to the region and has done extensive research about the area and what each neighborhood has to offer. He easily understood what we were looking for, and when we finally made an offer (sight unseen) it was because we trusted what he saw in addition to his knowledge and support. I would highly recommend working with Brian. -Anonymous
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…
Brian was great to work with and got our home in contract within days of listing. From the custom, professional video of our home to high end brochures, Brian’s marketing of our home was outstanding. Moreover, Brian put in the time in to host open houses that resulted in many potential buyers seeing our home in person. We highly recommend Brian Ladd. -Anonymous
My husband and I decided we loved Oregon and wanted to start house hunting. Since we currently live out of country Alice sent us weekly updates of houses on the market that matched our criteria. When we came into town she rearranged her schedule to accommodate us. We were impressed by the effort she put into giving us all the information we asked for and when she didn’t know, she always found the answer. Looking for a home is time consuming so the weekly updates were very helpful in monitoring t…
This Ladd team is the most professional team of realtors I have ever dealt with. They are compassionate and detailed in every phase of the process and their communication is above reproach as we were involved in every phase of the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. Bryan Hilts was especially helpful during the entire process of selling our home and buying a townhome.
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.
