Service area: 20 miles
Service Area: I am licensed and can assist clients in DC, Maryland, or Virginia.
With a background in energy efficient home retrofit consulting and green building, I can help buyers locate properties with these features, or upgrade a home to have them. I can help sellers market the energy efficient or green attributes of their home to attract a broader audience of potential buyers who will see the value of their property. In general I can help all of my clients with reliable information about energy-related and eco-friendly products and service providers.
I formerly worked closely with the Environmental Protection Agency to educate local governments about redevelopment of contaminated properties (brownfields) often redeveloped as LEED certified or as renewable energy sites. I also supported HUD's Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) and the Department of Energy's Real Estate Initiative. I served as a liaison between the National Association of REALTORS and the Department of Energy to help other agents understand the importance of energy efficiency in their business practice and learn how to talk about it with their clientele. I have a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Management from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and am a LEED Accredited Professional.
In addition to over 15 years of working on green building and energy efficiency initiatives, I have a Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources Management from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and am a LEED Accredited Professional.
I have found that there is a tremendous amount of misinformation out there about the benefits of various green and energy efficient technologies or products. I am very careful to confirm and double confirm any information I share with my clients. I have found that the green industry gains credibility in drops and loses it in buckets when the information is not absolutely correct and grounded in fact and backed up with solid numbers.
