William Raveis Stowe Realty agents Ken Libby, Bunny Libby and Teresa Merelman attended the 2015 Green Real Estate Symposium. The event sought to educate industry professionals about appraising, selling and financing with energy-efficient and renewable-energy features.
(November 2, 2015) – Lamoille area Realtors® joined more than two hundred real estate professionals on Oct. 29 at Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee for Vermont’s first Green Real Estate Symposium. The event, sponsored by the Vermont Green Home Alliance (VGHA), was designed for real estate professionals, home inspectors, appraisers, mortgage lenders and anyone interested in learning more about energy efficiency and renewable energy features for residential and commercial properties.
The symposium provided insights into the wide variety of green and “smart” home features now available to consumers. Attendees also received updates on Vermont and New Hampshire energy codes, new residential evaluation tools, the costs associated with owning a green home, and much more.
“Cutting-edge smart-home technologies are becoming more and more mainstream,” said Isaac Chavez, CEO of Vermont Realtors®. “As the trend towards more eco-friendly, energy-efficient homes continues to grow, it is important that real estate professionals and those involved in the real estate transaction, gain the knowledge they need to help consumers make informed decisions about buying and selling a home with these features.”
“This was one of the most exciting training programs we have attended in years,” said Ken Libby of William Raveis Stowe Realty. “The knowledge we gained will help make us more than just the professionals who help people buy and sell homes. We will be the ones that home owners trust to become smart, hands-on managers of their most important asset.”
