These are challenging times for REALTORS®, consumers and for our industry. NAR has a profound obligation to navigate complex litigation that has the potential to affect not just our industry but the entire American economy. The future of buyer representation is at stake.

NAR is rising to the challenge to deliver real value on relevant issues to our members. Throughout 2024, NAR is making the popular Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation course, which is typically $295, available to REALTORS® at no cost!

The ABR® course is the first step toward earning the ABR® designation and focuses on the key information and skills agents need today when working with buyers, including how to:

• Walk buyers through written buyer representation agreements.

• Advocate for their clients’ best interests throughout the transaction.

• Articulate their value to the buyer client.

• Work with data to complete insightful market analyses.

• Explain the range of financing options available to clients.

• Stay on top of emerging trends.

• Build relationships that carry beyond the closing.

It’s critical that buyers have access to professional representation during what, for many, is the biggest investment of their lives. Through NAR's partnership with the Center for REALTOR® Development, every REALTOR® can take advantage of this no-cost offer to enhance their ability to articulate and demonstrate their value to buyer clients.
