What is "Green" Real Estate?
Well, I’m embarking on a new adventure in real estate…. an educational journey on "green" real estate. After reading Hot, Flat, and Crowded by Thomas Friedman, I became convinced that the merits of saving our environment through "green" principles was important.
After speaking to many people on how to employ green techniques and principles in real estate and to help my clients who have that interest, I’ve determined it is important for me to pursue several real estate designations. First the National Association of Realtors (NAR) GREEN designation and next the EcoBroker® designation. I’m also researching the U.S. Green Building Council LEED designation and others.
One step at a time.
This week I took the first portion of NAR’s GREEN designation course here in San Diego. I learned a lot that I’ll be sharing with you…. because I know that you would like to save money, save the planet, and contribute to our children and grandchildren’s quality of life.
