New Green designation for Realtors


green_logo_tag_resizedThe National Association of Realtors (NAR) created GREEN, the sustainable property designation. To better serve my clients, I obtained the new certification and now hold the two designations available for real estate agents, http://www.greenresourcecouncil.org.

Local anecdotal evidence is that certified green homes are selling faster than standard new construction.  Whether buyers are social resposible or just looking for ways to save money, the bottom line is that every step benefits us all.  Buildings use the largest percentage of energy. Here’s a link to the complete NAR press release.

“As energy costs rise along with concern for the environment, homeowners are looking for innovative ways to save money and live responsibly,” says NAR President Richard F. Gaylord. “REALTORS® who earn the Green designation will add value to the real estate transaction with their knowledge of resource-efficient building materials and processes, as well as their understanding of simple actions that can reduce energy and water waste.”
