Have you visited GreenTowns?

This Site Rocks!

I stumbled in to thanks to the Green Resources Council and am thrilled to be sharing a fun new toy/tool for us to geek out on.  What a fabulous resource.   There are severals ways that I can see it being useful to us:

  • It might have great answers to questions you don’t know about sustainability in your community and inform you about some cool happening in your area you can pass along to your audience.  You know the rule, be the source of the source.
  • I answered all of the  questions in the “How Green is your Town” section and am hoping I get to be one of the “experts” in our area.  GreenTowns has partnered with NAR to offer Green Designees the opportunity to promote their designations and serve as community experts in the forums.
  • If you are an active part of promoting a culture of sustainability within your community, this is a great way to promote the initiatives or projects you are involved with.

With the simplicity and non commercial look and feel of GreenTowns, it seems like it’s the perfect mix of informative and interactive for todays tech savvy consumer without raising their skeptical ranker.   I know of nothing like this that can serve as both a national and local networking tool and  offer a way to showcase your green expertise. Hopefully I will see some of you in GreenTown.

Anna Altic – Village Real Estate Services. I’ve called Nashville home for the last 15 years and have been practicing (practice being the key word here) real estate for just over 6 years. In the fall of 2007, I went to a local German Festival that had a home tour, including a LEED certified property, and I instantly became enamored with the idea of eco friendly living (ok, so I’d had a little beer and the dual flush toilet rocked my world). I have since devoted much of my time and energies in to studying and espousing the benefits of better building technology within our local residential market and my proudest accomplishment thus far has been successfully leading the initiative to get over 25 green features added to our MLS search fields.
