NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS
Brandy 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. For more information please contact us on our team line at 941.404.4737
