‘Green’ brokers work on Whidbey:

Four local real estate professionals are specializing in eco-brokering.

EcoBrokers are licensed Realtors who’ve invested in their education and completed the courses and examinations required for certification as knowledgeable about environmental issues that impact real estate.

Four EcoBrokers practice on Whidbey Island. Three — Linda Beeman, Shellie Moore and John Joynt — work with Windermere Real Estate/South Whidbey.

Their mission is to promote responsible development, sustainable design and affordable housing. That certification helps clients find or sell energy-efficient, healthier homes that are more comfortable to live in and have higher resale values. National surveys indicate that 80 percent of consumers consider themselves “green-minded.”

For information, call Beeman or Moore at 331-6006 or Joynt at 221-8898.
