Well, if you were in Asheville this week, you would have found them all dashing through the pouring rain to attend a seminar taught by AR member, Mary Love .
It never stopped raining throughout the 2-day event, and despite the fact that "something" caused the ceiling to leak atop Jane Roger's head, a good time was had by all who attended the core course for NAR's new GREEN Designation.
In fact, Asheville's GREEN Designation course sported a full contingent from in and around the mountains. There were forty (40!) real estate professionals in attendance. You might call these the eco-friendly local experts.
As you know, Asheville is a hot-bed of "green" when it comes to new homes and retrofits and people who care about issues of sustainability and energy efficiency. No wonder then that I heard there is a waiting list for Mary's next class .
I'm excited about what I learned at this first outing of the GREEN core class in the Asheville area. The Green Resource Council page at the National Association of REALTORS'® website explains, "The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR's) Green Designation addresses the concerns of consumers that are seeking real green expertise, not just lip service. ...You can be the one they come to for answers. As a real estate professional, you can have a real and lasting impact. " Good benefits for all of us. But more than that for, in this case, THIS particular teacher gave us a fine time and a number of reasons to enjoy her presentation , the learning of pertinent GREEN material, and to share some good laughs along the way....
PHOTO shows the seminar leader/teacher/facilitator and Active Rain member MARY LOVE.
Mary has a Masters Degree in Environmental Science and 20 years experience in that field. She also is a practicing REALTOR®, I couldn't imagine a better instructor.(See photo which does neither of us justice, please.)
If you are lucky, you may see Mary in your neck of the woods one of these days. And if you find out Mary's coming your way, be sure to sign up for the GREEN Designation Core Class with her.
This was not the first time Active Rain members in Asheville have converged, but it might have been one of the most delightful. Thanks, Mary!
