Although aimed more at real estate licensees, this article, published by the Arizona School of Real Estate & Business, from one of our US GreenBrokers team members provides an insight into the value of green data fields and standardization of those fields when homeowners invest in energy-efficient and sustainable upgrades. More importantly the role of working with a certified green real estate professional is clarified.
US GreenBrokers is proud to announce the addition of one of Arizona’s top REALTORS®, Jan Green to our team!
Jan is one of the top REALTORS® in Scottsdale, Arizona. Affiliated with ReMax Excaliber, Jan dedicates herself to spreading the word about sustainability and energy-efficiency to her customers as well as communities. She has devoted much of her time over the past couple years “greening the MLS” with her local Board of REALTORS®.
At the recent “Energy Summit” hosted by the Arizona School for Real Estate and Business (ASREB), Jan was a featured speaker on the Energy Savings panel and a moderator for the Energy Efficiency in Construction panel. Attendees included REALTORS®, builders, appraisers, mortgage professionals and representatives from the two Phoenix utility companies. Not only did attendees earn CEU credits, they left with a greater knowledge of energy-efficiency, building science, energy sources and a better understanding of ways to work more efficiently with professionals in related fields.
Jan will be a tremendous asset to the US GreenBrokers team and we look forward to her contributions to our blog and social media pages as well as showcasing her sustainable listings on our Arizona page. Welcome Jan and thank you for joining the team!
