Sustainability anchors my place in the real estate market. In addition to helping clients sell, find, or build a home they love, I assist builders, developers, and other real estate brokers whose clients are looking to achieve twenty-first century efficiency and added home value through healthy, green building.

identify vendor allies and installers certified to perform construction and remodel work, creating a benchmark for your project through quality assurance.
