Asheville Green Real Estate Buyer's Agent

By
Real Estate Agent with ECO-Steward Realty

Hello .

This is my first post. I am happy to find out about Active Rain and especially to find all the green and eco-friendly information here. As a "green" buyer's agent and REALTOR in Asheville,NC I spend most of my time in previewing and finding residential properties that are energy efficient and sustainable for clients,but also look for land.  Whether finding green homes or land, this is something I can get excited about because everyone benefits.

I have wondered if "green" is as popular in other parts of the country as it is here. Judging from what I am reading here, it seems that Green Real Estate is a trend not only in Asheville, N.C. but across the USA. With this in mind, I look forward to innovation in real estate and lots of good possibilities in 2008 and into the future,but I am wondering if you think this is just a fad, or if green real estate  is here to stay.

Hi John,

We are so honored to have you as part of the group here!  :)  I can't wait to hear what else you have to share with us.  Green Real Estate is indeed growing across the Nation, but I hesitate to call it a trend.  I hope that it stays longer than the trend of Laminate Wood Floors and Granite Countertops.  :)

Nice to see you over here!!  Oh,  about that Solar idea you have?  (yes, we have heard.  :) 

Can we hear more about it?

Thanks for the advice, Vance. I am a slow typer but an avid reader. I am thinking that maybe my typing should get faster when I take your advice.

Mary,

Hi. I am also a big fan of your BLOG. I didn't think I had mentioned the solar arrayproject we are investigating for our client. We were out on the land looking at solar exposures this week. Our clients are thinking about whether this land will work for an array up of solar modules so that they can convert the energy from the sun to DC power to be transmitted to the panel center and possibly power an eco-village.

Hi Ginger, 

I think you are one of the NC Ladies janeAnne  mentions all the time. I hope to get to meet you in person one of these days. Thanks for the warm welcome. I hope that sustainable building practices expand all over the country. Do you know if HERS ratings are catching in in your part of the State?

Hi John - that sounds fantastic! It also looks like NC offers great incentives for solar! This will be a great project to follow! Keep us updated!
