Accredited Buyer Representative Designation Course

5/12/2015 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, to real estate practitioners who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria. 

In addition, REBAC provides many membership benefits to help your business grow and keep you up-to-date and networked, with new enhancements added each year.

The overall goals of the ABR® Designation Course are to: 

  • Prepare real estate professionals to thoroughly represent buyer-clients in real estate transactions and provide the quality of service and degree of fidelity to buyers that sellers have customarily enjoyed. 
  • Offer ideas and methods for building a buyer representation business. 
  • Develop a self-customized tool for conducting a buyer counseling session.

($110.00/year to maintain membership)


  • Successful completion of the two-day ABR Course, including an 80% passing grade on the exam.
  • After you complete this course you will have three (3) years in which to complete the other requirements. 
  • Successful completion of one of the ABR® elective courses, including an 80% passing grade on the exam. This course may be taken prior to completing the ABR Designation Course. 
  • Documentation verifying five (5) completed transactions in which you acted solely as a buyer representative (no dual agency). Any transactions closed prior or closed within three years after completing the ABR Course are eligible for credit. 
  • Maintain active membership with REBAC and NAR.
