April 5, 2010 - PRLog -- New Home Specialists Chad Elert, Jeff Greenlee, Terri Jacobson, Amy Kirner, Scott Kramer, Tonya Nye and Todd Pierce at Veridian Homes have earned the EcoBroker Certified® designation, having successfully completed an award-winning informative training program on the energy and environmental issues that affect real estate transactions. Elert, Greenlee, Jacobson, Kirner, Kramer, Nye and Pierce join the movement of professionals pushing the real estate market toward energy-efficient, sustainable, and healthier features in new homes. Today’s focus on high-performance energy-efficient homes is a priority for this type of high-quality professional team earning the EcoBroker Certified® designation. EcoBrokers® like the team at Veridian are building premier market presence by serving as consumer and community resources on energy and environmental issues. With national surveys indicating that nine out of 10 consumers consider energy efficiency and the environmentally sound aspects of a home to be almost as important as interior finishes, Certified EcoBrokers® are simply in a better position to serve the savvy green-minded consumer.

“I’m always looking for the best ways to not only offer our homeowners the best value but to also develop a relationship where they feel we are a trusted resource,” John Maasch, vice president of sales and marketing, explains. “The EcoBroker Certified® training helps ensure that our home buyers, who are the number one priority, get the knowledge they need. From energy-efficient appliances to green features to overall energy savings, our team now has more resources to help home buyers make informed decisions.

EcoBroker International’s premier designation program is designed exclusively for real estate professionals who care about the environment and want to help their clients benefit from the energy-efficiency, “green,” and healthier features of homes. The extensive curriculum of energy and environmental training requires participants to fulfill additional program requirements to become Certified EcoBrokers®.

“The New Home Specialists at Veridian Homes are an example of the quality real estate professionals the EcoBroker Certified® designation continues to attract,” explains EcoBroker International CEO Dr. John Beldock. “These real estate professionals are not only distinguishing themselves in a competitive market place, but they are really giving back to the community in very constructive and meaningful ways. Dane County needs more contributors like Veridian Homes. The planet and our grandchildren need them, too,” says Dr. Beldock.
