Tempe MicroEstates - ASU Internship

A really cool aspect of my business has just begun.  Being selected to be a part of a group of like-minded people in 2018 that are into sustainability is an amazing opportunity. Not only for the opportunity and what the group represents, but the different facets of the project as well. 

 

The "group" is aptly named "Sustainable Advisors."  It's fitting since we are comprised of a builder, HERS rater, solar contractor, developers, and me as a realtor consultant.

 

I've written about the very cool project Tempe MicroEstates in the recent past, but the internship program wasn't in place.  Thanks to one of the Sustainable Advisors genius members we're getting started. 

 

The grant earned by the Sustainable Advisors for the Tempe Micro Estate project includes replication of the project and also an Arizona State University (ASU) internship program.  The interns have been selected and parameters of the program are in place. 

 

My contribution is to relay all things real estate to the interns. 

 

Ivy is a senior at ASU and is enrolled in the ASU School of Sustainability degree program.  She's recently added real estate as a minor to her degree.

The really cool thing is she has combined both sustainability and real estate, an exciting marriage in my book. 

 

ASU was the first school across the nation to provide a degree program in sustainability.

 

 

Ivy relayed, "My father was always interested in real estate, and I got really excited when I found out there is a minor in real estate from ASU." 

 

Stay tuned as Ivy shadows me in business and we expand her practical knowledge of sustainable real estate!

Awe! That's terrific! Jan Green you are giving back in the most beneficial way for generations to come. That's a great photograph of you and that student. 

Your contribution as a Sustainable Advisor will make a significant difference in the lives of many new interns.

Hi Jan,
This is awesome.  Glad to see AZU being so progressive with their commitment to sustainability.   Ivy hit the lotto getting you as a mentor. Will be watching for updates.

Thank you Endre Barath, Jr. !  Both interns attended a class I taught yesterday so the fun continues!  I'll share more later.  The funny thing is about 5 years ago my then broker told me I should do something like this and I kinda scoffed at the idea.  Now it's been added as part of the grant so there you go!  Someone is directing traffic for me!

Thank you  Grant Schneider .  We are all very careful about giving up our skillset in this industry, but sharing what we've learned benefits the industry by increasing knowledge.  I'm humbled and proud to have been selected to be involved in this program, much less mentoring an intern.  Ivy and I get along very well and she's a bright young lady.  I look forward to staying connected to see where her future business opportunities take her!

You are are in the right community with your particular niche, Kan. Mentoring and giving back is so rewarding - we should NEVER be afraid to share our knowledge and skills - afterall, there is nobody quite like you.

Hello Jan - what an interesting program and one where the benefits will become more appreciated with time.  I am sure the success at ASU will hopefully spread to other schools and to multiple interpretations across the country.

Exactly Michael Jacobs !  Here's hoping.  ASU is the first degreed program in Sustainability and they now have an MBA program.  Very cool.  One of the scientists invented a process to create thin air out of Hydro panels.  They are now in 26 countries with Scottsdale as their Headquarters!
