The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate BUYER'S AGENT Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS® who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
I am proud to hold this designation, but what does it really mean to you? Most sellers have a listing agent that is an advocate and represents their best interests. It only makes sense that you should have someone like that as well, someone who is constantly looking out for you. As a buyer's agent, I work for you and it is my job to:treat you honestly and ethically provide helpful information on properties and sellers that can strengthen your position explain real estate terms and processes help you to find and compare financing alternatives that best suit your financial goals organize and attend home visits that are convenient with your schedule develop a comprehensive Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) before an offer is made assist you in submitting your offer to purchase in a timely fashion to the seller design a strategy and negotiate as your advocate to secure the best possible price and terms keep all personal information confidential as advised
As a buyer's agent, I am compensated by the seller to bring them a "ready, willing and able buyer". My service and commitment to you are complimentary, no strings attached. I am very serious about what I do because I enjoy the challenge of this business. I am one of very few people who I know, that truly loves their job. I hope to be able to meet you soon and not only become business partners, but friends.
