Coldwell Banker Bain of Bainbridge Island announces that Rob Avery has been awarded the National Association of Realtors Green Designation. This is the only green real estate professional designation that is recognized by NAR.

Avery earned this designation after completing the required course work specifically designed for Realtors. These requisite courses ensure that designees gain comprehensive knowledge of green homes and buildings, and issues of sustainability regarding real estate.

Avery was also educated on what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the costs and 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.

“Living green is about making healthy choices that are also easy on your wallet,” said executive director of NAR’s Green Designation Kristen Short. “NAR Green Designees have the necessary resources and relationships to effectively work with you on your next green project.”

NAR’s Green Designation was created in response to the growth of consumer awareness regarding the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings. The designation aids consumers who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices.

As an NAR Green Designee, Avery now possesses the knowledge and tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for the Bainbridge and Kitsap County area.
