Green Building – Involve your Realtor
Kelly recently completed the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Green Designation. There is a lot of great information out there on what makes a home ‘Green’, but it can be difficult to keep it simple. NAR’s green designation empowers us as your realtor to better inform our clients with specifics to look for and understand when buying and selling homes. To us, it comes down to energy and resource efficiencies. We can guide you on what to look for and ask when looking at your next home purchase. Or if you are thinking about home improvements, give us a call and we would be happy to consult on the improvements that will have the most impact on the energy efficiency of your home. Part of our job is to be able to recommend the right consultants to our clients. For existing homes, you might consider starting with a Home Energy Audit. If you are thinking about building a new home or taking on a major addition/remodel, we can recommend a ‘Green’ general contractor that is certified in passive house construction.
