Buyer representation has truly become one of the most critical consumer issues and grows more prevalent each year. Completion of the ABR® - Accredited Buyer's Representative course is an important first step towards earning the coveted ABR® designation.

This 2-day in class course provides techniques, tools and resources to help real estate professionals succeed as a buyer representative. Course content covers agency relationships, negotiation strategies, the advantages of buyer representation from the buyer, seller, listing and selling broker perspectives, and identifying sources of buyer clients.

* Value the services you perform on behalf of buyer-clients
* Increase confidence to work toward a signed buyer representation agreement
