Denver, CO – 1/22/10 – Brian C. Smith, of Keller Williams Realty Downtown & Urban Pro, LLC in Denver, has earned the EcoBroker Certified® designation, having successfully completed an award-winning informative training program on the energy and environmental issues that affect real estate transactions. Brian joins the movement of professionals pushing the real estate market toward energy-efficient, sustainable, and healthier features in homes and buildings. Today’s focus on high-performance energy-efficient homes is a priority for this type of high-quality real estate professional earning the EcoBroker Certified® designation. EcoBrokers® like Brian are building premier market presence by serving as consumer and community resources on energy and environmental issues. With national surveys indicating that 9 out of 10 consumers consider energy efficiency and the environmentally sound aspects of a home to be almost as important as interior finishes, Certified EcoBrokers® are simply in a better position to serve the savvy green-minded real estate consumer.
“I’m always looking for the best ways to not only offer my clients the best value but to also develop a relationship where they feel I am a trusted resource,” Brian explains. “My EcoBroker Certified® training helps me ensure that my customers, who are my number one priority, get the knowledge they need. From energy-efficient appliances to solar options to overall energy savings, I now have more resources at my disposal to help my buyers and sellers make informed real estate decisions. The EcoBroker Certified® designation doesn’t make me an energy and environmental expert, but it puts me in a position to recognize issues and convey information on the products and services available to my buyers and sellers.”
EcoBroker International’s premier designation program is designed exclusively for real estate professionals who care about the environment and want to help their clients benefit from the energy-efficiency, “green,” and healthier features of properties. The extensive curriculum of energy and environmental training requires participants to fulfill additional program requirements to become Certified EcoBrokers®.
“Brian is an example of the quality real estate professional the EcoBroker Certified® designation continues to attract,” explains EcoBroker International CEO Dr. John Beldock. “These real estate professionals are not only distinguishing themselves in a competitive market place, but they are really giving back to the community in very constructive and meaningful ways. Denver needs more contributors like Brian. The planet and our grandchildren need them, too,” says Dr. Beldock.
The program also teaches its members how best to market and position themselves for that competitive edge within the real estate platform. From the Denver office, Brian explains, “With EcoBroker’s training, I have broadened the range of real estate opportunities I offer my clients. I’m in a position to help. The real estate industry is forever changing and our nation faces complex environmental issues. To best serve my clients, I need to understand the newest products, technologies and issues as they affect today’s real estate market. My EcoBroker Certified® designation helps me stay ahead of the game.”
Brian earned his EcoBroker Certified® designation in January and is wasting no time putting the tools and additional expertise to work. He has already found that being an EcoBroker® creates added value that sets him apart from other agents. Brian says he’s looking forward to continuing to positively impact the industry by highlighting the cost effectiveness and benefits of energy-efficient homes and commercial buildings.
