Join us for a two-day training designed to introduce green real estate concepts, principles, practices, and benefits. You'll stand out from the crowd by earning the only green designation for real estate agents conferred by the National Association of REALTORS®. This training will include additional information to benefit real estate professionals working in hard-to-reach or disadvantaged communities. This unique class also includes a green home tour (transportation provided from classroom to tour location) that will introduce energy efficiency and electrification concepts in an interactive setting!

NAR Green Day 1: The Resource-Efficient Home - Retrofits, Remodels, Renovations, and New Home Construction with Green Home Tour

The session looks at why consumer demand for these homes is increasing and how both the homes and consumer expectations impact the market. The course prepares real estate professionals to provide advice and sources of information to help homeowners improve the resource efficiency of their homes from low-cost fixes and DIY projects to retrofitting and replacing systems to big -budget remodeling projects. The course also looks at constructing a new, resource-efficient home and the value that real estate professionals can bring to the design and build team.

During Day 1, we'll take a field trip to a green home to continue learning building science while seeing how it can be applied firsthand to a listing. You'll see how you can incorporate green features into your listing and talk about the benefits.

NAR Green Day 2: Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource Efficient Homes

This session focuses on applying your knowledge of resource-efficient, smart, and certified homes and adapting your core real estate skills to build business success in the niche market for resource-efficient homes. More homebuyers are demanding green and energy-saving features in their next homes. Are you prepared to assist them? 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.

Earning NAR's Green Designation

Upon completion of the two-day required courses and successfully passing each exam with 75%, you will receive 16-hours of Continuing Education Units approved by the Department of Real Estate. (If you do not receive a passing grade, you may attend a future training and re-take the exams.)
