Environmentally Friendly Homes

If the concept of sustainability is important to you, Sedona is a great place to live. And Wally Reule, a holder of the Green Designation from the National Association of Realtors, can be an excellent resource for you as you consider your options.

A succinct definition of sustainability, developed by the United Nations in 1987, is a way of living that "meets present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs." It takes a broad approach which includes creating healthy indoor and outdoor environments, saving money, developing new 'green jobs", assuring our country's energy independence, and finding innovative approaches to resource efficiency.

Building, buying or selling a GREEN home requires special expertise. Homes may be under appraised because of a lack of understanding of the proper valuation of GREEN features, their benefits may not be effectively marketed, or features touted as GREEN may be misrepresented. Working with a qualified GREEN professional can help you avid costly mistakes.
