What is an Accredited Buyer Representative?

Accredited Buyer Representative Kim Blanton
The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is designed for real estate buyer agents who focus on working directly with buyer-clients

More than one million people in the United States are licensed to sell real estate. Of those licensees, fewer than 2 percent are Accredited Buyer Representatives (ABR®)

Today, many real estate agents and companies are offering to represent the buyer in the real estate transaction. From the initial selection of properties, all the way through contract negotiations and closing, you can now have an agent specifically committed to representing your best interest when buying your Goodlettsville, Hendersonville, White House or Springfield area home.

To attain this designation, a real estate practitioner must complete an extensive classroom training program on buyer agency practices and procedures, pass a written examination and submit evidence of practical experience as a buyer's representative.

There is no charge to you for using a Buyer Representative. All commissions are paid by the sellers in the form of previously negotiated co-broker and listing agreements.
