We can all make a difference… go beyond reduce, reuse and recycle
Welcome to the GREEN area of my site. When I made the decision to get the National Association of REALTOR’S GREEN designation, I did so to better serve my clients and learn how to better respect the planet.
I hope this section helps you with your next home renovation project… while learning more about how to keep our community and planet healthy, happy and beautiful for many years to come.
