Green Living

With a passion for “green living,” Liz and Ellie integrate sustainable practices into their personal and professional lives whenever possible.

As a LEED Green Associate, Ellie combines the traditional services of a Realtor® with the ability to help you understand the various elements that make a home green, what credits you may qualify for, the numerous green certifications, how to effectively market your green home, and much more.

 

We are excited to see more and more people acknowledging the importance of sustainable living.  With access to the Internet, the amount of information and resources on “green” building is rapidly growing.  Here are a few of our favorites web sites. If there are any links that you would like us to add, please let us know.
