What is a Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent®?

Some Exclusive Buyer Agents have chosen to go above and beyond Exclusive Buyer Agency to become a Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent® (CEBA®) or Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent – Master® (CEBA-M®).

In order to earn the CEBA® designation, an Exclusive Buyer Agent must have:

     • Been licensed for a minimum of two years
     • Closed a minimum of 12 buyer transactions as an Exclusive Buyer Agent
     • Completed the required EBA Guide readings on Agency, Ethics, and Disclosure; Client Services; and Real Estate Financing
     • Passed a comprehensive exam with a score of 80% or higher

In addition, a Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent® must complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education every three years after earning the designation and maintain the high ethics and standards as set by NAEBA or the designation will expire.

Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent – Master® or CEBA-M® is the highest designation an Exclusive Buyer Agent can hold. The requirements are some of the strictest in the real estate industry. To earn the CEBA-M®, an Exclusive Buyer Agent must have:

     • Already earned the CEBA® designation
     • Been licensed for a minimum of four years
     • Closed a minimum of 24 buyer transactions as an Exclusive Buyer Agent
     • Completed minimum service to the industry requirements by serving on various real estate committees and boards

In addition, just like Exclusive Buyer Agents holding the CEBA® designation, Exclusive Buyer Agents who have earned the CEBA-M® must complete a minimum of 12 hours of continuing education every three years after earning the designation and maintain the high ethics and standards as set by NAEBA or the designation will expire.

Because the standards to become a Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent® or Certified Exclusive Buyer Agent – Master® are so strict, Exclusive Buyer Agents holding those designations are the cream of the crop for real estate buyers, making up less than 1/2% of all the real estate agents in the United States.
