An existing and growing inventory exists of high performing homes (HPHs) (homes that have undergone energy efficiency, solar, and/or other green improvements). There is mounting evidence these homes have greater value at time of sale than unimproved homes.
Pamela Brookstein is the Market Transformation Specialist for Elevate Energy. She works to make the value of high performance homes visible in real estate transactions. She coordinates a national group of efficiency experts who are making groundbreaking accomplishments in the realm of visible value, and works closely with the local real estate community to increase usage and understanding of green MLS. Pamela has spent much of her career building relationships with municipal leaders, community organizations, and local residents to improve the public health in Chicagoland.
