The Ins & Outs of Sustainability; What Your Clients Want you to Know

In every industry there are innovators that are always forging ahead. Real estate is no different. Check out my latest speaking gig in Ohio. THANK YOU to the Ohio Association of REALORS® for the opportunity and to the efforts of Jan Jedlinsky and Christopher Matos-Rogers for your collaboration! You guys rock!

A BIG Thank you to Jan Jedlinsky for the invitation to speak and teach continuing education to Ohio REALTORS® in Cincinnati on 9/11. Jan served as the moderator and did an excellent job putting the class in front of the Association and it's members; while Christopher Matos-Rogers and I added content. Together, we helped realtors think differently and, challenged them to learn what is already mainstream for the public.

Understanding sustainability isn't rocket science, but it is an added level of knowledge that is independent of regular continuing education courses. A realtor who takes the time to understand energy efficiency, water efficiency, indoor air quality, and how best to sell high performance homes is providing value added information that helps the public - TENFOLD!

Sharing how best to service clients in the energy efficiency space in residential real estate isn't new. Energy efficiency has been around for a long time. But there are new products and services and efficiency gets better and better. Knowing how to explain the features and benefits of these feature is critically important in the sales process.

So the next time you consider who to hire to sell your home, think twice about their qualifications. Is your realtor practicing outside their area of expertise?

 
This blog is the second in a series for September on Sustainability.  Questions - reach out to me!

Thank you for commenting Kat Palmiotti !  It was fun making them laugh, lightening up the load, and making things fun and educational!  I was in Cincinnati for less than 24 hours, flying to Austin for a 2 day Sustainability Summit. Wish i had time to catch up with AR peeps!

Thank you Nina Hollander, Broker ! They had no idea what sustainability was, 99% of them anyway.  It was a great segue into their business and how to help clients.   They were a great audience and it was fun!

Thank you Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho !  Learning is growing and I think that's important in business.  If you don't grow, you become outdated!
