RISMEDIA, January 5, 2009-Dennis Liebl, a broker with Dickson Realty’s South Lake Tahoe office, has earned the EcoBroker Certified® designation from EcoBroker International, having successfully completed a unique and informative training program on the energy and environmental issues that affect real estate transactions. With the addition of Liebl, Dickson Realty now has six brokers who hold the EcoBroker Certified® designation, the most of any real estate agency in Nevada.
“It is important for Dickson Realty to be leading the movement of pushing the real estate market toward energy-efficient, sustainable, and healthier design/features in homes and buildings,” said Liebl. “I am proud to be able to join this ‘performance home’ movement with the other Dickson Realty brokers that understand the importance of ‘green’ homes. EcoBrokers can better create competitive advantages for their customers.”
With national surveys indicating that 80 percent of consumers consider themselves “green-minded,” Dickson Realty professionals with the EcoBroker designation are in a better position to serve the real estate consumer.
“I’m always looking for the best ways to offer my clients the best value,” said Liebl. “My EcoBroker training helps me ensure customer satisfaction, which is my number one priority, as well as broaden the range of real estate opportunities I offer my clients. From windows to moisture control to energy savings, I now have more resources at my disposal to help my buyers and sellers make better real estate decisions. Whether the transaction involves environmental assessment and mitigation (mold, radon, etc.) or the opportunity to reduce utility bills, I’m in a position to help. The real estate industry is changing, and to best serve my clients I need to understand the newest designs, technologies, and environmental issues. My EcoBroker designation helps me stay ahead of the game.”
EcoBroker International’s education and designation program is designed exclusively for real estate professionals who care about the environment and want to help clients benefit from the energy-efficient, “green,” and healthier features of homes and buildings. EcoBroker provides a complete curriculum of energy and environmental training to licensed real estate agents. Real estate professionals must complete the extensive EcoBroker curriculum and training and fulfill additional program requirements to become Certified EcoBrokers®.
“Dickson Realty’s EcoBrokers are not only distinguishing themselves in a competitive market place, but they are giving back to the community in very constructive and meaningful ways,” said Nancy Fennell, president of Dickson Realty, Inc. “Our brokers are continually looking for ways to better assist our clients while doing what is right for our community.”
Also as part of Dickson Realty’s commitment to environmental responsibility, the real estate agency launched its new “Dickson Green” division on April 2008 to serve as a resource for healthier, more cost-effective, green real estate practices.
