Home Start

*Funds raised from the Realtor Games will support these youth and set them up on a path to self-sufficiency.  Your funds will help provide the security deposits, titrated rental assistance, bus transportation passes, gas cards, and grocery or department store gift cards expenses not covered by government funding to help the youth stay housed, make ends meet, travel to work or school, have fresh food, etc. Ultimately you will help them break free from the cycles of homelessness, abuse, poverty, and neglect.

For 50 years, Home Start staff have served on the front lines in the battle to protect vulnerable children from abuse by strengthening families and their communities.  To effectively prevent and treat child abuse, they address conditions that put children in risky or abusive situations such as homelessness, hunger, poverty, unsafe neighborhoods, lack of safe/affordable housing, & unemployment. They also focus on individual self-sufficiency and emotional needs to break the cycle of families remaining in poverty or abusive situations.

In any given year, the families, youth, and children Home Start serves are on the brink of crisis or just recovering from extremely challenging circumstances.  The added stressors caused by the impact of COVID-19, including the housing crisis, increased domestic violence, and inflation, has been particularly devastating for the low-income families in their care.

NAR Green Designation at NO COST + 16 Hours CE credit

Posted by Kevin McElroy on May 12, 2022 10:30:00 AM


What a Deal! Free Education Credit & a NAR Green Designation
NAR Green Designation Training

Gain a competitive advantage and learn how to become your clients’ go-to resource for
buying or selling a more efficient, money-saving, healthy home.

NAR Green Designation Training

Register Here

 


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®.

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
Tuesday, June 14th | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

NAR Green Day 2:

Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource-Efficient Homes
Wednesday, June 15th | 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Expand Your Knowledge - And Your Client Base

Strengthen your knowledge of green real estate and help your clients:

  • 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
  • You’ll also learn how to market green and grow your business to attract new customers.
  • 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 consider 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 trainings will provide you with the education to support your clients’ green endeavors no matter their objective.
