Green Designation

NAR's sustainable property designation

If you’ve thought about getting familiar with the latest “green” technologies to serve a broader array of clients or if your clients seem to know more about “going green” than you do, now is the time to take advantage of NAR’s new and improved Green designation.

In order to qualify, you must be an NAR member, attend the entire multi-day course and submit your free application. Your first year’s Green Resource Council dues are free – a $98.50 value! Your second year Council dues is prorated from the month you are conferred with the designation. Starting on your third year, you will need to renew your membership annually at a cost of $98.50 per year.
