Going green is no longer considered a fad. It’s just plain sensible. We want homes that don’t waste energy and that are healthy for us to live in.
Real estate agents who are certified EcoBrokers have done the work to educate themselves on environmental issues and the advantages of eco- and people-friendly, sustainable building.
From energy efficient appliances, windows, energy recovery-controlled ventilation systems, insulation, moisture management, lighting, heating and cooling systems, to water heaters---there’s a lot to know. EcoBrokers have training in all these energy-related topics
We don’t want to breathe the toxic chemicals that can be released from certain building materials. We don’t want to buy a home and find out later that we have a mold problem. We want to know what kind of roof a house has and how long it will last.
We want to deal with someone who understands, not only about the materials homes are built with, but also the features that will save us money for decades to come. We need someone who understands advances in solar and passive cooling and heating. We want to know about all these things before we buy a property.
If we’re selling a home, we want someone who is knowledgeable about the features of our home and can explain its advantages to buyers. That’s just one reason why Paul Kyno is such a successful agent.
