Awarded the National Association of REALTORS®’ (NAR’s) Green Designation

Real Estate Agent with Weichert Realtors

Paul Stillwaggon and Patricia Cornish with Weichert Realtors/ New Jersey Estates has been awarded the National Association of REALTORS®' (NAR's) Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by NAR.


With the collaboration of the some of the most skilled homebuilding professionals in the industry, Weichert Realtors / New Jersey Estates Real Estate Group proudly presents a variety of new-home communities in New Jersey, all carefully planned around the idea of community and an exceptionally gratifying lifestyle. To accomplish this, Our Group selects inviting small towns such as Warren, Watchung and Berkeley Heights to serve as a backdrop for these neighborhoods.

Paul & Pat achieved this prestigious designation after completing 18 hours of course work designed specifically for REALTORS®. The courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring designees gain comprehensive knowledge of green homes and buildings and issues of sustainability in relation to real estate.


More specifically, Paul Stillwaggon & Pat Cornish were trained in:
  • Understanding what makes a property green
  • Helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of green building 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
  • Helping consumers see a property's green potential.

"As energy costs rise along with concern for the environment, homeowners are looking for innovative ways to save money and live responsibly," said Dick Gaylord, NAR's immediate past president. 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 who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals.

As NAR Green Designees, Paul & Pat have gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource

Congrats on your designation! I'm taking the core class next week. I do have one big question right now, EcoBroker® has a great "find your local EcoBroker®" search, I don't find one for the NAR designation. Do you know of such?

Good question, I asked in class and they told me everything is in the pipeline. In the future everything will be in the MLS, which is the smart thing.

For those with REALTOR designations ...

Did NAR (National Association of Realtors) disclose to you before you took the class that you would need to pay them every year to rent your designation?

Did NAR disclose the additional annual fee when they advertised this class?

Did NAR disclose to you how much the annual renewal fee would be before you took the class?

 We are talking ethics here, are we not? 

No one I know with a designation knew about these extra fees. Why is that?

Why would NAR fail to disclose annual fees, as they advertise these designations? Could it be becuase you would not take their classes?

Please email me with your NAR concerns:
