CENTURY 21 Hometown Realty agents recently attended a two-day seminar hosted by the Scenic Coast of REALTORS® in Morro Bay. The ‘Green Designation' program is administered by the National Association of REALTORS®. This course was first launched at the N.A.R. annual conference in November 2008.
The curriculum gives REALTORS® a broad understanding of green real estate principles--from the concepts of sustainability and smart growth. As a practical resource, this course shows real estate professionals how to explain to consumers what makes a home, building, or property green, energy efficient and how to obtain an energy audit. Agents will be able to advise clients on ENERGY STAR appliances, green grants, rebates and incentives for consumers to help off-set costs.
The CENTURY 21 agents were encouraged to be an advocates in spreading the green philosophy and be a positive force for creating sustainable and energy efficient communities of homes and commercial buildings. The new mantra around the office is, the ‘3R's', reduce, recycle, reuse.
CENTURY 21 Hometown Realty has 10 offices; each office is independently owned and operated. To reach one of our agents on the Coast 805-528-2000, in San Luis Obispo 805-541-1921 or www.c21Home.com
