Due to changes in Montana law, buyers can now choose a higher level of service when working with a real estate agent. In the past, virtually all real estate agents owed fiduciary duties to the seller. Agents were obligated by law to get the highest price and best terms for the seller. As a buyer, you now have the option of contracting with an agent to represent you. From the initial selection of properties, all the way through contract negotiations and settlement, you can now have an agent specifically committed to representing your best interests when buying a home. Having an agent represent you usually costs nothing extra and could save you from making costly mistakes.
The Accredited Buyer Representative designation, conferred by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. Agents who have earned the ABR designation have demonstrated in depth knowledge and experience in buyer representation. Two key areas emphasized in ABR training are how to identify potential problems with a property and how to negotiate the best price on behalf of the buyer. Less than 5% of all REALTORS are Accredited Buyer Representatives. REBAC is an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
Gregg was the first Northwest Montana REALTOR to be awarded the ABR designation in 1994.
