"The Green Certified Real Estate Professional - Green Leadership course in important for keeping our home buying clients on top of the Green building movement," stated Boyd. "Not only is it important that home buyers understand the benefits of environmentally focused design, it is also important to keep our clients from being mis-lead by the puffing and incorrect information that is being promoted in our local market."
The course, from Green Real Estate Education (greenrealestateeducation.com), is intended to help real estate professionals learn what green building is and what it means for consumers. Green facts, new initiatives, green materials, financing tools, tax incentives, and energy rating are all reviewed.
"As we see new construction and home renovation begin to move toward "going green", it is important for our clients to have a basic understanding of green building technology and how it impacts their choice of homes. The certification was an important milestone in that effort," concluded Boyd.
