EcoBrokers Take Home Buying to a New Level

For those that are energy conscious, a new breed of real estate agent has been born: the EcoBroker. EcoBrokers are educating the public on ways to make their existing Las Vegas homes more energy efficient, showcasing Las Vegas new homes builders who build eco friendly homes and giving advice on ways to make our lifestyles more eco efficient.

EcoBroker is a program designed to help people find real estate that embraces energy efficiency and sustainable design. EcoBroker trains real estate agents in green building and home technologies and practices so that they can help buyers find green homes and assist sellers to integrate and market green features in their homes to help them sell. The designation consists of a total of 18 hours of continuing education in energy-efficiency, green building programs, indoor air quality, sustainable development, and environmental issues..

The Tonnesen Team is proud to announce that Lisa SantaCaterina, one of only two EcoBrokers in the Las Vegas Valley, is joining their team.
