Buying a new home can be a great adventure—a chance to imagine a new lifestyle, re-create a familiar atmosphere, expand for a growing family, downsize for easier living, discover a new neighborhood, and redefine a happier, healthier future.
One often-overlooked aspect of home shopping is a dwelling’s sustainability—think energy efficiency, indoor air quality, water management, and siting considerations. Sustainably built or retrofitted homes offer many advantages for quality of life, aging in place, and future resale value. Consider:
If you’re thinking of selling your home, soon or in the future, increasing its sustainability can offer benefits while you remain in the home as well as enhance its future value.
My goal is to work with you to identify the home you’re hoping to create as well as to maximize its health and lifestyle benefits.
As a full-service real estate broker and member of the National Association of Realtors®, with training in sustainable building, I offer you an enhanced range of skills. I’d be honored to help guide you to meet your aesthetic and practical goals, as well as to make best use of modern available resources and live in concert with our natural environment. I call it intentional living.
My expertise is grounded in providing step-by-step guidance toward achieving a higher-performance home or business. Whether you are buying, selling, building, or upgrading, I can help you navigate design considerations, assessments, certifications, rebates, incentives, vendors, and more.
