What Is an Accredited Buyer Representative?
Buying a home may be the largest and most complex financial transaction you ever undertake. If you're ready to buy a home, wouldn't you prefer to work with the most qualified real estate professional you can find?
As an Accredited Buyer's Representative, I have gone through additional training, have proven experience representing buyers and that extra edge you have been looking for. If you also have a property to sell before, after or during your next purchase I can also help you navigate both transaction with ease as your Seller Representative Specialist.
What makes an ABR the right choice for you?
The ABR designation is only awarded to licensed real estate professionals who complete specialized training that gives them the edge in understanding a buyer's perspective and protecting and promoting their buyer-clients' interests. Before earning the ABR designation, buyer's reps must also demonstrate proven experience in representing buyers. Further, they are committed to maintaining their professional edge by staying current on the latest issues and trends in buyer representation.
In addition to knowing the dynamics of the local market, REALTORS with the ABR designation understand the special needs of buyers. They have additional knowledge and experience that takes them a step beyond an agent who only concentrates on listing property for sellers. An ABR can provide you with valued assistance throughout the transaction and help you make informed decisions that will lead to a successful home purchase.
As an ABR I can help you:
Understand your specific needs and wants, and locate appropriate properties
Assist you in determining how much you can afford (pre-qualify your mortgage)
Preview and/or accompany you in viewing properties
Advise you in formulating your offer
Help you develop your negotiating strategy
Provide a list of qualified vendors (inspectors, attorneys, lenders, etc.) for other services you may need
Keep track of every detail throughout the transaction — to closing and beyond
Not all buyer's representatives are equal. Only a buyer's rep who has earned the Accredited Buyer's Representative designation has made the extra effort to raise the bar, with additional training and experience. If you work with an ABR, you can feel confident that you'll receive the highest level of buyer-representation services.
The ABR designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), an official council of the National Association of REALTORS (NAR).

Alex was a pleasure to work with! As stressful as purchasing and selling a home at the same time can be, especially during a pandemic, Alex was the best resource we could have asked for. He was responsive and resourceful, always ready to share knowledge when we had questions. He made the whole process feel comfortable, allowing us to feel good about decisions at every step. I highly recommend using Alex. He goes above and beyond for his clients!

After starting my search for a new home, I met with several other agents, but none of them clicked like Alex did. Alex made the entire home purchase process a breeze. His communication is excellent, and always made himself available. He is very kind, and an excellent negotiator at the same time. I am so glad Alex was on my team during this challenging process. I wholeheartedly recommend Alex for any home purchase or sale.

Alex came recommended through a friend and my husband and I could not speak more highly of him! He was incredibly thorough from the first conversation to close, listened to what we were looking for and worked hard to get us into showings. Alex was fully invested through our search including pointing out potential concerns with houses and walking us through the offer process. Any updates through the mortgage and legal process we're promptly relayed to us. I would (and have) recommend Alex's services for anyone doing a home search.
