Laura Reedy Stukel is Elmhurst’s first EcoBroker Certified sales agent, specializing in solutions to help clients buy and sell the “not-YET-green home” and enabling the buyer to make green improvements upon closing. She is carrying on the legacy her grandfather, known locally as “The Old Pro,” created when he started LW Reedy Real Estate nearly 60 years ago.
Stukel’s passion for green homes comes directly from managing the extensive remodel of her own 1966 home. The project was recognized as the “Green Improvements” winner in Better Homes and Gardens magazine’s 2009 Home Improvement Challenge.
The lessons she learned from the rehab are now captured in two proprietary consumer programs. Ready, Set, Green Homes(SM) is designed in versions for both active buyers and sellers. For sellers, the program packages federal tax credits for energy efficiency with seller credits and lender incentives to make not-yet-green homes more attractive to potential green buyers. For green buyers, the program makes a green rehab after closing doable. The 5×10 Challenge(SM) is a related program targeting home owners who want protect the long-term resale value of their home.
