GREEN Course Overview
NAR's Green Designation is a two-day program that gives you the solid foundation of skills you need to build a better business focused on green real estate.
Our program explores the resource-efficient home and sustainable homebuyers from the inside out—uncovering consumer motivations and how they impact the market.
NAR Green Day 1: The Resource Efficient Home
Day 1 defines resource-efficient home features, smart home technology, and green home certifications like Energy Star or LEED. You'll also examine how homeowners can improve the resource efficiency of their home—from low-cost fixes to big-budget remodels—and the value REALTORS® can bring to the design and build teams of new-construction green homes and existing properties.
NAR Green Day 2: Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource-Efficient Homes
Day 2 provides practical ways to apply your knowledge of green housing trends in your local market; explores how green lifestyles and values—such as affordability and walkability—impact consumer decisions; and shows you how to build an effective team of experts to help you better represent buyers and sellers of green homes.
