green living: LEED Green Associate Class, Atlantic Cape Community College, NJ - 02/15/10 07:09 AM
I am so excited that I start my Leed Green Associate Exam Prep course tomorrow at Atlantic Cape Community College here in Atlantic County, NJ (they also have a campus in Cape May County, hence the name).  Before I decided to join the fascinating world of real estate in Ocean City, NJ and surrounding Atlantic and Cape May County communities, I worked at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority (ACUA) when they started the process of becoming a LEED certified building.  For those who may not know, LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design which is a program of the … (0 comments)

green living: Blue Sky, Green Playground - 01/07/10 07:22 AM
I can't believe I am saying that a day in the high 30s was nice, but it was.  The sky was blue, the sun was out and the boys wanted to go to the park (I am doing showings later, but had a chance to get out at lunch time).  So, we went to a park that was new this summer in Ocean City at 34th Street.  It is fantastic with a whole area for many, many swings, even for disabled children, and two playscapes - one for little ones and one for the older kids.  They are challenging physically and … (0 comments)

green living: Teaching Kids and Adults - 12/16/09 02:03 AM
I was watching Super WHY on PBS with my sons today and the story of the day was about Wyatt's (Super Why's) Mom getting mad at him for wasting water.  I had to laugh because I've totally been there and thought myself ridiculous for practically yelling at my then 2 year old for wasting water, like he really understood at that point.  He understands now that he is almost four, but really, I was upset.  Just hearing the water run when not being used at that exact moment or filling up the sink or bath more than necessary really irks me.  … (4 comments)

green living: Why Green? - 11/05/08 02:54 PM
You may be wondering why this is a real estate blog, yet I haven't focused specifically on green building techniques.  Well, that is because if you are trying to help the environment, there are many things you can do that are not related directly to your home itself, but what you do in it, and my passion for the environment drives me to tell you about all sorts of tips and info, rather than just focus on business.  Also, green building is costly, and with the current economic conditions, it might be hard for people to make the commitment to go … (3 comments)

green living: Green Living - 10/25/08 10:08 AM
Hi!  Well, this is my first blog post.  I am looking forward to maintaining this blog about my real estate business and about something that may or may not always relate directly to my business - green living.  I read a lot and with my science background am always picking up on things that we can do to help our planet and ourselves by making healthy environmental choices.  As I come across new products or ways to save energy, reduce greenhouse gas, etc., I will relay them in this blog.  I look forward to getting this going.
