Help your Clients Buy Or Sell a Green Home

Recent studies show that 94% of home buyers rate energy efficiency as an important part of their home buying decision. Are you prepared to address their questions about green features and improvements?

Join us for a two-day training to learn green real estate concepts, principles, practices, and benefits - in a way that makes sense to you and your clients. Stand out from the crowd by earning the only green designation for real estate agents conferred by the National Association of REALTORS®.  You'll also learn how to market green and grow your business to attract new customers.

Earn the NAR Green Designation
To earn the NAR Green Designation, you must attend both days of training.

NAR Green Day 1:
The Resource-Efficient Home - Retrofits, Remodels, Renovations, and New Home Construction
Thursday, September 30th | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

NAR Green Day 2:
Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource-Efficient Homes
Friday, October 1st | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Expand Your Knowledge - And Your Client Base

  • Find and transform a fixer-upper into a more comfortable home with lower utility and maintenance costs
  • Make the right upgrades before selling to boost their home's value
  • Navigate the cash rebates, incentives, green certifications, and green financing necessary to achieve their goals
  • Don't sign up because others are underwriting the cost. Sign up because it will help you be more successful.
  • What elements of a home are potentially poisoning the occupants and what can you do about it?
  • Do you really understand how a home functions?
  • Would you and your clients like to save hundreds of dollars a year by learning how to use resources more efficiently?

Demand for Green Homes is Growing
Green real estate is not a fad, but a fundamental change in the market. Nearly 40% of home buyers considered high-efficiency heating and cooling to be "very important", and two-thirds of state governments have implemented green building policies. Furthermore, a 2012 study found that green-certified homes - with labels such as ENERGY STAR® or GreenPoint Rated - sold for up to 9% more than homes without a green label.

People have different motivations for going green. Some want to reduce their impact on the environment; others want to save money, reduce waste or create a healthier home for their children. Our training will provide you  with the education to support your clients' green endeavors no matter their objective
