The ABR® is the "benchmark of excellence" certification in buyer representation and is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council ("REBAC") of the National Association of REALTORS®. This designation is achieved through both educational and practical experience in which the agent is specifically trained to represent buyers in every transaction and to provide them with exemplary service. This prestigious certification isn't given to just any agent - it is awarded to the agent that proves he has the knowledge, experience and commitment needed to provide the buyer with excellent representation during their home buying journey from start to finish. This designation is optional, and there are currently less than 300 Calgary REALTORS® out of 5200 who have earned this designation. Working with an Accredited Buyers Representative will give you the peace of mind that you are being served not sold, and that truly your best interests are being looked after.
