Certified Buyer Representative (CBR)


This is a NON NAR Designation

Certified Buyer Representative (CBR)

Earn the Certified Buyer Representative® designation and 15 hours of New York CE while honing your skills, boosting your confidence and building your buyer representation business.

CBR® is the original buyer agency designation, with thousands of designees in 48 states, and has been the gold standard in buyer representation for 26 years. The CBR® designation has no annual dues, no final exam, no transaction requirement and no additional elective course requirement to earn and maintain the designation. CBR® is the only buyer agency designation course in the country that is specifically customized for New York agents.

This two-day, live online course addresses some of the most challenging issues facing agents who specialize in representing buyers, including: How can you get more exclusive-right-to-represent agreements signed?

How can you prevent the seller and seller’s agent from dictating your commission and determining what your services are worth? How can you differentiate yourself from other buyer’s agents?

The Certified Buyer Representative® designation establishes an agent’s unwavering commitment to excellence and integrity; and it demonstrates, both to peers and consumers, that the agent upholds the highest standards of service to real estate buyers.

Approved for 15 hours of New York CE (including 2 hrs. Agency)

The CBR® certification is not affiliated with or endorsed by the National Association of REALTORS®.
