I am a residential Realtor and have been in business since 1993. I work with a small independent agency and am an independent contractor. I have the NAR green designation and I also have the Ecobroker Designation.
I have recently acquired these two designations and have not been involved with past building projects. During the past year I have started to accumulate information about sustainable building practices for my residential buyers. I am in the midst with connecting with people who do home energy audits so I can refer my clients to them to help them save money in their existing homes and help the environment at the same time. My goal is to educate my clients and help them navigate the "green" world that is filled with so much information that it can be overwelming. I am putting together a monthly networking group of small business owners so we can help one another connect with good resources for our business and our clients. Last year I acted as a consultant for my client who was building a new home as she wanted to have as little impact on the environment as possible and implement energy saving mechanicals in her new home.
I use three home inspectors that are all certified to do home energy audits. I also have connections with mold and radon specialists that have extensive knowledge in their fields. I have a good relationship with a contractor that leases and sells solar panels.
I would say that the film that VP Gore did really woke me up about the environment - most particularly the fact that we can take small steps and they can have a big impact. My goal is to educate my clients, both past and present , so they can save money in energy costs, have a better, cleaner and healthier home environment and have less of a carbon footprint too.
