FAQ - Why Would I Want To Be A Green Realtor?
This is a question asked frequently in my everyday life as a realtor. There are several reasons:
It’s a value added service to my clients.
They appreciate that I take an interest in benefiting their health and the environment.
Home buyers appreciate the industry information about product information as we view homes.
Home sellers know that I understand and market their green home effectively to a large audience.
It’s a small business niche, but a growing construction field.
There are two courses a realtor can take to become a green realtor. These are NAR Green and EcoBroker. I became an EcoBroker in 2008 and am currently the Realtor Committee Chair for the Residential Green Building Committee , US Green Building Council, AZ Chapter.
