NAR Green Day 1: The Resource-Efficient Home - Retrofits, Remodels, Renovations, and New Home Construction
Wednesday, November 9 | 8:00 am – 5:00 pm 

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.

NAR Green Day 2: Representing Buyers and Sellers of Resource Efficient Homes
Thursday, November 10 | 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

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.
 
Join us for a two-day training to learn green real estate concepts, principles, practices and benefits from the ground up in a way that makes sense to you and your clients. 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 is offered in partnership with Oakland Berkeley Association of REALTORS®.

  • Don't sign up because others are underwriting the cost. Sign up because it will help you be more successful.
  • Did you know that 94% of home buyers rate energy efficiency as an important part of their home buying decision? Are you prepared to have that discussion?
  • What elements of a home are potentially poisoning the occupants and what can you do about it?
  • Do you really understand how a home functions?
  • Would you and your clients like to save hundreds of dollars a year by learning how to use resources more efficiently?
