Green Designation

Green isn’t just a trend; it’s a movement and one that Team Woodall supports. The National Association of REALTORS® believes that every step toward a greener, more sustainable environment is a step in the right direction and therefore created specific training for real estate professionals to help clients live a green life. Angela completed the Green Designation courses through NAR and whether you’re looking to green your home, your business or your life, Angela can assist you. Already Angela has been assisting clients with purchasing Green homes and is one of a select group of real estate professionals in Tucson that have the knowledge to help.

As awareness about the benefits of sustainable homes increases, more and more businesses are greenwashing, or falsely claiming to be green. To help you distinguish fact from fiction, the Green REsource Council provides NAR Green Designees like Angela with up-to-date resources and ongoing education about:

  • Green materials
  • Energy-efficient technology
  • Green ratings
  • Green design
  • Green incentives
  • Green living
  • Why Go Green?
  • For The Environment!
  • For The Savings!
  • For Your Health!
  • According to the U.S. Green Building Council, “Generally, green homes are healthier, more comfortable, more durable, and more energy efficient and have a much smaller environmental footprint than conventional homes.” Sustainable properties are the future of the real estate industry. Consumer demand, residential builders, federal government incentives, and local government policy are making this happen. Many consumers, real estate professionals, and property owners are taking steps towards greening their properties.

    As the green building movement gains momentum, so does the consumer demand for greener properties. Two-thirds of consumers are paying attention to green homes and buildings; they recognize the link between green properties, cost savings and healthy living. Consumers also understand the long-term investment and savings associated with greener homes.

    There are a variety of reasons to go green, but most come back to supply and demand. We have a limited amount of resources available and more and more people using them up. If we want our future generations to enjoy the same standard of living we’ve experienced, we need to take action. Green building is a great place to start, as buildings consume 14% of potable water, 40% of raw materials, and 39% of energy in the United States alone (according to the US Green Building Council). That’s 15 trillion gallons of water and 3 billion tons of raw materials each year!

    Myths About Going Green

    Myth: Going green will cost an arm and a leg.
    WRONG! There are a variety of cost-effective ways to green your home and lifestyle that can actually SAVE you money. Discover this and many other reasons why to go green.

    Myth: To have a green building, you need the building to be LEED certified.
    WRONG! LEED is setting a standard for existing and new green homes and buildings. You can implement green products and practices into your home or office that reduce energy consumption, save money and save the environment without the building being LEED rated or certified.

    Myth: One person can’t make a difference.
    WRONG! We believe that every step towards green is a step in the right direction. Whether you change one habit or your entire way of living, your actions can reduce your carbon footprint and make a world of difference in the long run
