Discover the Details of Green Living

Gain the knowledge that distinguishes you as a source for resource-efficient homes with NAR’s Green Designation course.  Through the two-day experience, you’ll learn the best approaches to:

  • Make a home more resource-efficient
  • Connect clients with green DIY resources
  • Use smart home technologies
  • Retrofit and replace systems
  • Advise clients through effective remodels
  • Build green from the ground up

We’ll cover the distinguishing characteristics that make a high-performance home.  The course looks at how consumer demand for these homes is increasing and provides a detailed accounting of how high-performance features work.  The course prepares real estate professionals to provide advice and sources of information to help homeowners improve the performance of their homes—from low-cost fixes and DIY projects, to retrofitting and replacing systems, to big budget remodeling projects and new constructions.  Ultimately, this course will show you how to apply green knowledge to enhance your business while also helping to create a more sustainable, healthy world.

"As you gain knowledge and insight on sustainability, you create another layer of information value for your clients." - Leslie Rouda Smith, NAR President
