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).
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…
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..
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 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
Brian has been a tremendous help to marketing Greg Welch Construction homes and showing the quality of work we can provide. From video adds to print and open communication – We recieve the highest quality of promotion a builder in this market could ask for. Thanks Brian! -Anonymous
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
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.
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
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…
