The real estate market for high-performing homes - homes that are more comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient than typical homes - is booming in every state. High-performing homes that are marketed correctly consistently sell more quickly and for more money than similar homes that are not considered high-performing.

AFTER THIS CLASS, REAL ESTATE AGENTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
• Differentiate themselves from peers by serving as a subject matter expert on this topic
• Discuss the benefits of high-performing homes
• Cite the resources and incentives available to help finance upgrades
• Describe how energy moves throughout a home
• Utilize the green data fields in the MLS
• Identify effective marketing strategies for high-performing homes

Stand Out from the Crowd offers information and resources that enable real estate agents to identify and address high-performing homes in the residential real estate market. Topics include an overview of the local area’s high-performance housing market, a review of the features that contribute to performance, and details on incentives and rebates available for clients looking to upgrade their homes. The class also provides guidance for listing and marketing these homes so that the value is visible to buyers, sellers, and appraisers.

Pamela Brookstein

Pamela Brookstein is the Project Manager of Research and Innovation for Elevate Energy. In this role she manages the Value for High Performance Homes initiative, an effort to bring together the energy efficiency and real estate communities to ensure that the value of high-performance homes is visible in real estate transactions. Pamela has a background in sustainability and educating the real estate community. She brings these interests together in the classroom to create an encouraging, dynamic, and content-rich learning experience. Pamela thinks that it has become too confusing for people to live a lower impact lifestyle, but real estate agents can play a key role in advising their clients if they understand a few basics. With the information they learn in the Green Designation classes, Pamela can help keep agents at the center of the real estate transaction as more buyers become interested in sustainable living. In addition to her live teaching experience, Pamela, in collaboration with the National Association of REALTORS® Green REsource council, developed and manages two online solar education classes for real estate professionals.
