QUALIFICATIONS

What does it take to get inducted? There’s no simple answer. The nomination form asks for a “summary of activities, achievements, participation in REBAC programs and events, and general contributions to buyer representation undertaken by the nominee that qualifies him/her for inclusion in the Hall of Fame.”

Because there are no simple, agreed upon benchmarks or rigidly defined requirements for inclusion in REBAC’s Hall of Fame, the best way to understand what makes a worthy candidate is to look at what past REBAC Hall of Fame inductees have accomplished. This will reveal attributes that all Hall of Fame members have in common, such as:

  • Dedication to buyer representation service centered on client needs and wishes.
  • Buyer representation skills based on training, competency, and experience.
  • Active participation in REBAC, other professional associations, and community organizations.
  • Commitment to the advancement of buyer representation and its practice.

  • REBAC members are encouraged to nominate (only) ABR® designees, including themselves, whose accomplishments deserve external acknowledgment.
