Davie, FL (PressExposure) December 07, 2009 -- South Florida Green Realty Realtor® Achieves National Association of Realtors® Green Designation

Patty DaSilva Broker/Owner of Green Realty has been awarded the National Association of REALTORS®’ Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Patty DaSilva achieved this prestigious designation after completing 24 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, DaSilva was 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.

“Energy costs are rising and we must find innovative ways to save and live more responsively. It’s our pleasure to serve the people of South Florida with our value added “Green” services, we have launched our websites at and our web forum at so that we can closely understand the needs and wants of our customers and to educate our South Florida communities on how to help our environment by truly going “Green”,” said DaSilva, Green Realty's Broker/Owner.

The National Association of REALTORS®’ 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 a National Association of REALTORS®’ Green Designee, Patty DaSilva has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for South Florida's tri-county area of Broward County, Miami-Dade County and Palm Beach County. Patty DaSilva has also launched South Florida's first “green website” offering special products and advice on listing and purchasing an energy efficient home.
