GreenSpecialists are professionals in the mortgage lending, residential real estate, appraisal, and personal lines insurance industries who recognize that the greening of the real estate market is not only happening, it is essential. These individuals have stepped forward to differentiate themselves as being knowledgeable in–and supportive of–green building, particularly residential. GreenSpecialists (GreenLending Specialists, GreenRealEstate Specialists, GreenValuation Specialists, and GreenInsurance Specialists) have taken a rigorous two-day course, passed a final exam, signed a code of conduct, and most importantly committed themselves to continuing to expand their knowledge of green building.
