A local real estate agent has earned the “green” designation from the National Association of Realtors.

Nicole Brule-Fisher of Realty Executives Southern Arizona is now a certified “EcoBroker,” a release said.

She completed 18 hours of coursework to learn what makes a property green, how clients can evaluate costs and benefits of green building features and practices, how to list and market green homes and buildings, the financial incentives available and more, a release said.

The NAR green designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness and interest in the benefits of resource-efficient buildings and homes.

“As energy costs rise, along with concern for the environment, homeowners are looking for innovative ways to save money and live responsibly,” said Dick Gaylord, NAR’s immediate past president.

Brule-Fisher is the first in Tucson to achieve green designation from the national association, the release said.
