Course One: EcoBroker Environmental Advantage
EcoBroker Environmental Advantage is designed to educate real estate professionals to readily identify and understand various environmental issues as they relate to real estate transactions. Real estate licensees reduce potential liabilities through improved knowledge, understanding, and the ability to provide clients with information and access to technical experts in the field. Licensees who receive this training assist buyers and sellers in learning more about environmental issues, and encourage their clients to make informed decisions with regard to the energy and dollar saving benefits of a safe and healthy piece of real estate. Increased consumer awareness drives the market toward higher quality, healthier, and more energy-efficient real estate.
Course Two: EcoBroker Energy Advantage
EcoBroker Energy Advantage is designed to educate real estate professionals to recognize and understand the potentially energy-efficient attributes of a variety of products, appliances, building materials, and building designs. Real estate professionals benefit from increased knowledge, understanding, and the ability to provide their clients with information and access to technical experts in the field. In turn, the buyers and sellers of real estate, as well as members of the general public, enjoy a variety of energy and dollar saving benefits as a result of the reduced maintenance and utility costs associated with more energy-efficient properties. The EcoBroker emphasis on recognizing and taking advantage of the energy-efficient features of properties, or perhaps achieving financing for energy-efficiency improvements, allows real estate clients and consumers to experience a variety of financial, environmental, and health-related benefits.
Course Three: EcoBroker Green Market Advantage
EcoBroker Green Market Advantage is designed to educate real estate professionals to recognize various environmental, energy, and dollar-saving features of real estate and, in turn, market such features to clients who are looking for homes and buildings with “greener” features. In an era of rising energy costs and heightened awareness of energy and environmental conservation, buyers and sellers readily benefit from professional guidance on the energy and environmental features of properties. Real estate licensees themselves, as well as the buyers and sellers of real estate, benefit from the EcoBroker emphasis on using the most efficient, credible, and ultimately successful approaches in identifying and addressing “green” markets and “green” features of real estate.
