- Green materials
- Energy-efficient technology
- Green ratings
- Green design
- Green incentives

- And more!
What is the Green REsource Council
Established by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of theNational Association of REALTORS®, the Green REsource Council was founded to make the knowledge of green real estate practices available to everyone. We accomplish this by focusing our attention on providing sustainable education to real estate agents; the link to millions of home buyers, sellers and builders.
We award students who successfully complete the program requirements with NAR's Green Designationand membership to our council. Designed for residential professionals, NAR's Green Designation addresses the increasing demand for knowledge and resources on both new and existing sustainable homes.
Green REsource Council members place themselves at the leading edge of green real estate, gaining access to member benefits including ongoing education, up-to-date green resources and professionally crafted marketing tools. We also work to promote NAR's Green Designation by growing consumer and builder awareness and supporting green real estate advocacy.
