NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSBrandy has been awarded the National Association of REALTORS®’ Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by NAR. Brandy achieved this prestigious designation after completing topic-specific coursework designed specifically for REALTORS®. The designation courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring designees gain comprehensive knowledge of high-performance properties and issues of resource-efficiency in relation to real estate and homeowners. More specifically, she was trained in understanding what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of resource-efficient features and practices, distinguishing between industry rating and classification systems, listing and marketing green homes and buildings, discussing the financial grants and incentives available to homeowners, and understanding how buyer and seller preferences may be inspired by resource-efficiency. “Living green is about making healthy choices that are also easy on your wallet. NAR Green Designees have the necessary resources and relationships to effectively work with you to find your next home or assess your next green project,” said Marc Gould, Senior Vice President of NAR’s Member Development group. NAR’s Green Designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings. The designation helps consumers understand the positive impact of home performance and identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals. As a NAR Green Designee, Brandy has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for Southwest Florida.

Next Move MilitaryBrandy is also a member of Next Move Military. Tailored real estate offerings to our U.S. Military is, at its core, the mission of @next_move_military. Although we maintain a national scope, Next Move Military is primarily focused on adaptive coverage in the regions surrounding military bases – areas where many Veterans and active duty personnel reside. These neighborhoods are, many times, neglected by major real estate brokerages. Prior to Next Move Military, the surrounding base areas to live did not have reliable real estate agents in place who could be trusted (over and over and over again) with your move. #LocalExpertise means you’re in great hands. Our @nextmovemilitary Realtors are experts in the relocation process. Every member of our team has “been there and done that”! They know the struggles, stressors, timelines of a PCS, and specialize in how to navigate every angle of the relocation process for our Veterans on a personal level. Ensure that the real estate transaction(s) for your next move is overseen by an expert agent professional, whether it be listing a home, buying a home, or coordinating a simultaneous sell/buy in two different locations.
