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.

Please note: If you are also going to also register for the SRS Seller Representative Specialist course at this location on October 15-16, you will save money by, instead, signing up for the CCT Client-Centric Training Course at this location starting on October 3. The CCT combines the ABR and SRS courses into one 4-day course.
