As a mindset and practice, "green" is transforming the business of real estate-from the way we consider a triple-bottom-line approach to sustainability to the specific manner in which we renovate existing homes and build new ones. Designed for residential real estate professionals, NAR's Green Designation examines the latest trends in green building technology as well as consumer demand for homes that are environmentally certified or that incorporate green features.

Students who are members in good standing with NAR will receive a free year of membership with NAR's Green REsource Council once they have successfully completed two of the required courses:

Green 100 - Real Estate for a Sustainable Future

Green 200 - The Science of Green Building

Green 300 - Greening Your Real Estate Business

When students successfully complete all three required courses, they will be conferred NAR's Green Designation.
NAR Green Designee benefits include:

Green Designation Course Descriptions

Green 100: Real Estate for a Sustainable Future
The course leads students through an exploration of issues and trends in relation to real estate's role in finding the balance between people, planet, and prosperity. Students learn how to respond to consumer perceptions of what green means in the presence of a proliferation of green products, programs, and businesses as well as help consumers understand the significance of national green certifications and ratings programs for homes, energy efficiency, construction materials, and professionals. The course seeks to instill the mindset essential to building a green-focused real estate business so that students can apply knowledge of green trends and approaches to business planning.

Green 200: The Science of Green Building
Working from the outside of the home to the inside, Green 200: The Science of Green Building familiarizes students with green principles and choices in home design and construction. The course begins with site analysis and orientation followed by constructing the building envelope and choosing green systems. Students learn how building components and systems interrelate to create a green home. A special chapter looks at how net zero energy homes generate their own power and sell back to the grid. The course concludes with an exploration levels and cost-benefits of retrofitting, remodeling, or renovating for existing homes.

Green 300: Greening Your Real Estate Business
Now more than ever, current and future homeowners are motivated to understand green cost savings and health benefits. This course gives professionals the training they need to represent today's sellers and buyers. Green 300: Greening Your Real Estate Business is the third day of three required courses comprising the curriculum of NAR's Green Designation - the only designation of its kind recognized by the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®.
