green awareness: Active Lifestyle- Urban Boomer's True to Dream- Active Lifestyle-Asheville, NC - 04/25/12 08:01 AM
Asheville Real Estate Journal.Active Lifestyle- Urban Boomer's True to Dream: Urban Baby Boomers who dream of an active lifestyle within the town/city environment are seeing their dreams come to fruition. The emerging "New Urban " environment is a dream come true. It is (or is very close to) what this "white-haired wonder" has envisioned.
"In terms of New Urbanism and a Green residential community, who could ask for anything more,?" she asks.

And, as REALTORS well-aware of the growing demand of healthy-built homes in sustainable communities  we have to say she may be on to something. You may remember, we … (3 comments)

green awareness: What's On YOUR Lucky Green Roof? Part 1 - 03/10/10 07:19 AM
Asheville NC'sLEED Certified Blue Ridge Parkway Center and the Green Roof (see photo) made us self-admitted Roof Nuts. We became intrigued with the concept and  fascinated with  possibilities.  Now we talk about: 
Roof Color. Take, for example, the color of the roof.  It's pretty much common knowledge that a lighter-colored roof reflects more heat than a dark-colored roof. That's a good-to-know if you are into energy efficiency. Stormwater Runoff. When it rains, stormwater runoff can flow over impervious surfaces picking up pollutants along the way and washing them into rivers and streams, and can cause flooding and erosion. Creating  an "EcoRoof" … (13 comments)

green awareness: Are YOU the 100th Monkey? Active Rain Visionaries on the Subjects of Purpose, Collaboration, Responsibility and Healthy Lifestyles. - 07/25/09 01:46 AM
Are YOU the 100th Monkey? Active Rain Visionaries on the Subjects of Purpose, Collaboration, Responsibility and Healthy Lifestyles.
Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, July, 2009News and Views from Asheville's Greenolina, Real Estate Eco-StewardYears ago, the "100th Monkey" theory was widely popular and often quoted. It went like this: if, one by one, a hundred monkeys on a distant island learn how to use sticks for picking bananas the knowledge of picking bananas with sticks all of a sudden becomes an integral part of monkey consciousness. All monkeys everywhere all around the world will then be privy to this knowledge and be … (11 comments)

Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, July, 2009News and Views from Asheville's Greenolina, Real Estate Eco-Steward  
Do real estate professionals wish to support and/or help as people restructure neighborhoods, towns and the larger community? Many will say that they do, and in genuinely new and liberating ways. "We cannot do so just by the decree of law. Instead, we can look closer to home, with ourselves, our personal integrity, our own energy, " they might tell you.
In other words, all of us have to become ourselves, whole and healthy individuals. We have to think for ourselves, take good care of ourselves emotionally and physically, and follow our … (2 comments)

Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, July, 2009News and Views from Asheville's Greenolina, Real Estate Eco-Steward  
COLLABORATION: Does it seem to you that, within the amazing tapestry of life, individual well-being is woven together with the golden threads of collaboration- supporting the  local and larger community?
Bringing personal endeavors into alignment witha collaborative approach to solving problems is typical of an eco-friendly real estate professional's approach.
Everybody can benefit.
Although based on an individual's interest, in the collaborative choice, everyone's actions contribute to overall good. I have heard Native Americans refer to this extended sense of community as "all of our relations".

green awareness: The Stream - 02/14/09 02:07 PM
The stream rushing to meet a river. The river heading with all her might to the sea. The power of water.
 I stood by the banks of this stream on conservation land not long ago, and I felt that power. I could run with the water to new places. It is good to imagine what only the stream knows. . .No wonder I love the work I do

green awareness: Teachers Across the USA Pass a GREEN Resolution - 01/14/09 04:17 AM
A Big  eco-friendly "Thumbs Up" to teachers across the USA who helped pass a "GREEN" resolution:
"WHEREAS, green and sustainable schools are new or renovated schools that create a healthy environment that is conducive to learning while saving energy resources and money. "
Sustainable living encompasses a lifestyle change...
"green-built" schools * focus on improvements in site selection, daylighting, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, acoustics and classroom design - all of which have an important impact on a child's ability to learn and a teacher's ability to teach ..." 
Teachers are SMART!  So that is why  I am wondering is how many teachers … (3 comments)

When it comes to being an Eco-Starevery home can shine, even an "Oldie but Goodie" like this one in an historic and  sustainable community in Asheville, NC.
Simple  changes at home can add up to real benefits for your family, neighborhood and contribute to a sustainable community.

STARLIGHT ON..... DENA STEVENS
 
Dena  tells us the people she has met in her real estate practice have had an impact on her. She says learns from everyone she meets- the buyers, sellers, title people, REALTORS®, appraisers, down to the last receptionist. Each has had an impact on her business and she has learned something from every one of them. In fact, daily Dena  strives and pushes herself to learn something or experience something new.
Maybe you could guess by the fact that she 'wears a lot of green" that Dena is Pueblo Colorado's first Ecobroker, a  designation that helped to give her … (6 comments)
