The #1 most common mistake: NOT using an agent for representation when buying. WHY?
If you walk into a listing as a buyer and do not have an agent – keep in mind – THE LISTING AGENT DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU! They work for the seller. Buyer Representation costs you nothing, but NOT having buyer representation can cost you THOUSANDS!
If you are looking for Buyer Representation, you have come to the right place. Ariel is an Accredited Buyer Representative. The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (“REBAC”) of the National Association of REALTORS® who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
Why Use an ABR®: REALTORS® Experienced in Buyer Representation?
Buying a home is no small matter. Besides being the largest financial transaction you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. There are many good reasons to work with a qualified real estate professional—especially a trained professional who has earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, representing best-in-class buyer services.
When you look for an ABR® before you look for a home, you’ll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. And you’ll be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Plus, a REALTOR® who has an ABR® Designation also has an established track record, with proven experience in representing the concerns of home buyers.
The ABR® Designation is awarded through the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council, or REBAC, which was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer-representation skills and services. REBAC is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
