Understanding Real Estate Designations

imagesNorris & Company brokers and associates remain in a constant state of learning to bring innovation and fresh solutions to every real estate transaction. Those letters that frequently appear after a Realtor’s name mean that he or she has invested the time, energy and financial resources to offer clients an advanced level of knowledge and skills.

ABR® – Accredited Buyer’s Representative

An ABR designated agent focuses on working directly with buyer-clients at every stage of the home-buying process. They are trained to thoroughly represent buyer-clients in real estate transactions and provide the quality of service and degree of fiduciary responsibility that sellers have customarily received.

ALHS -- Accredited Luxury Home Specialist

ALHS agents are members of an elite group of exceptional and dedicated real estate professionals. As a testimony to their commitment, these high caliber agents subscribe to The Luxury Home Council's strict guidelines that demonstrate the agent's expertise in this highly demanding segment of the real estate marketplace.
