Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR)
The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is designed for real estate buyer agents who focus on working directly with buyer-clients. It 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.
Certified Residential Specialist (CSR)
The CRS Designation signals to consumers and other real-estate professionals that you are one of the best of the best. CRS agents are dedicated professionals and must meet stringent education and experience requirements.
