Accredited Buyer’s Representative...Joyce brings specialized training that gives her an edge in understanding a buyer’s perspective and protecting and promoting the buyer-clients’ interests. Before earning the ABR® designation, she must also have demonstrated proven experience in representing buyers. Developing a negotiating strategy, formulating the best offer and tracking every detail throughout the transaction are just a few of the benefits that you receive from an ABR®.
