PLEASE NOTE: To obtain and use the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation, you must complete all four (4) requirements:

1.) Successful completion of the two-day ABR® course, including an 80 percent passing grade on the exam. After you complete this course you will have three (3) years in which to complete the other ABR® designation requirements.

2.) Successful completion of one of the ABR® elective courses, including an 80 percent passing grade on the exam. This course may be taken prior to completing the ABR® designation course.

3.) Documentation verifying five (5) completed transactions in which you acted solely as a buyer's respresentative (no dual agency). Any transactions closed prior to taking the ABR® designation course or closed within three years after completing the ABR® course are eligible for credit. Documentation necessary for each of your five (5) completed transactions as follows:

Copy of the signed buyer agency agreement OR purchase/sale agreement OR settlement statement/closing disclosure. The contract must verify the agent's name and/or include the agent's signature as the buyer's agent. Providing only the name and/or signature of the buyer's agent's broker is not sufficient.


Copy of the settlement statement/closing disclosure or letter from your broker verifying that each transaction closed.

4.) Maintain active and good-standing membership status in the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC) and the National Association of REALTORS®.

Important notes: All requirements must be completed within three years of passing the ABR® Designation Course. Only REALTORS® who meet all of these requirements and have been officially awarded the ABR® designation are permitted to call themselves an ABR® and use the ABR® logo.
