Finding the right real estate agent to represent you
as a Southern California home buyer is the first important step to take in the home buying process.

According to Kiplinger's Magazine, in selecting a buyer's broker

"One credential to look for is an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR)

designation from the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council, a Realtor group."

The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in home buyer representation. The ABR designation is geared towards real estate agents who wish to enhance their buyer representation skills, and provides proof to prospective buyer-clients of their proficiency at servicing the special needs of home buyers. To attain the real estate ABR Designation, a Realtor must meet the education and experience criteria.   Course topics include:

  • Evolution of buyer representation
  • Agency relationships
  • Building and maintaining a buyer representation business
  • policy, standard of care and risk management
  • Changing an agency role
  • Agency conflicts and agency disclosure
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Services provided
  • The purchase contract
  • Negotiating

The distinguished ABR designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council, REBAC, which was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer representation skills and services. An affiliate of The National Association of Realtors® since 1996, REBAC has more than 30,000 active members and is the world's largest organization of real estate professionals concentrating on home buyer representation.
