Brandon Jordan achieves NAR GREEN Designation - 04/02/2023


Contact: Brandon Jordan

              32 E County Highway 30A



March 30, 2023

Santa Rosa Beach, FL – Brandon Jordan with ERA American Real Estate has been awarded the National Association of REALTORS®’ NAR’s Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by NAR.

 Jordan achieved this prestigious designation after completing topic-specific course work designed specifically for REALTORS®. The designation courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring designees gain comprehensive knowledge of high performance properties and issues of resource-efficiency in relation to real estate and home owners.

More specifically, Jordan was trained in understanding what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of resource-efficient features and practices, distinguishing between industry rating and classification systems, listing and marketing green homes and buildings, discussing the financial grants and incentives available to homeowners, and understanding how buyer and seller preferences may be inspired by resource-efficiency.

“Living green is about making healthy choices that are also easy on your wallet. NAR Green Designees have the necessary resources and relationships to effectively work with you to find your next home or assess your next green project.” said Marc Gould, Senior Vice President of NAR’s Member Development group. NAR’s Green Designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings. The designation helps consumers understand the positive impact of home performance and identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals.

As an NAR Green Designee, Jordan has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for Northwest Florida. For more information about Brandon Jordan, please visit or email

I have earned the Military Relocation Professional MRP Certification - 02/26/2023

I am located close to multiple bases with Tyndall Air Force Base, NSA the Naval Support Activity close by in Bay county. There is also the Eglin Air Force Base in multiple counties stretching Okaloosa and Walton counties in the areas so we have a large military population and I have worked with many military families so this course was rather easy for me. I do recommend it to anyone starting out that will be working with military families or anyone that just wants to show your qualified to work with military families with the designation. 

There is a nice resource guide that you download while taking the course with links and tips on the VA loan process what can and cant be paid by buyers with VA loans, goes over entitlements, funding fees. They also cover how long you have to have served to get a VA loan. 

The course also covers PCS moves along with moving expenses coverages, Rankings, salaries, what you can do as a Realtor to try to make the move a little less stressed before the service member or members get here with pre move checklist. There are links to helpful resources including what to expect with the move if a service member has never made a change of station move before. Sites to refer with weight calculators advising to setup their defense property system account for the move and appointment to have their household moved. 

Tips on service members deployed overview of releases from leases and payments on mortgages may be extended if needed till up to 6 months after being back servicemembers civil relief act SCRA.

Military Kids connect to help parents with starting to line up activities for the new area and whats available. They say its about 6 hours but if your just starting out your likely to want to check out the links as you go for example if your not familiar with the condos approved list for condos that are VA approved units you will want to leave yourself more time.
