Ten of our real estate brokers recently earned the National Association of Realtors’ GREEN designation. Each broker completed a three-day course focusing on fundamentals of green building practices, consumer awareness and marketing of homes built to green standards to earn the certification by NAR’s Green Resource Council. This is the only green training program recognized by NAR, and permits brokers to use GREEN as a signature designation among other advanced qualifications administered and certified by the national association.

At the Garner Group, we know that environmental awareness is a vital part of our industry our founder, Sandy Garner said, “It is important that our agents are up to speed on green building concepts.Green building practices not only are required of new homes in NorthWest Crossing but are becoming a mainstream influence in the overall housing market.”

Brokers with The Garner Group who earned the designation are: Rob Davis, Carol Donohoe, Alison Garner-Mata, Matt Garner, Shelley Griffin, Melody Lessar, Michael Mahar, Jody Tuttle, Lisa Whitney and principal broker Sara LaFaver.
