Asheville's Green Real Estate, The Positive Momentum. Isn't that what living "green" is all about?

asheville green real estate the road to living greenI emailed my client today.  He is relocating, and we have been talking about Asheville's "green" real estate market and how attractive it is...It is about "quality of life" issues.  I said that I had a few possibilities, in terms of seeking and finding real estate possibilities for him...the juice of  "positive momentum" to add to his living green suggestions.  


I asked...How about

1)  Talk. Be a "good neighbor". You can better gauge your own insights when you talk with those in the know.
2)  Ask. Especially ask local folks .Reach out strongly for the insights of others.
3)  Use your ingenuity and the resources available. Give it your best shot.
4)  Celebrate life.  Find humor, wherever you may be.
5)  Remember
that is just fine to start where you are.


Again...deep stewardship.  I got thinking, as one travels down the road of life, isn't that what living "green" is all about?


Cradle to Cradle.One of my supreme favorites, this system proposes "a new strategy called eco-effectiveness. By learning from nature's 'design principles,' eco-effective design conceives industrial systems that emulate the healthy abundance of nature."

The Center for a New American Dream. Offers ideas to help you to live consciously, simplify, and buy wisely.

United States Social Forum. Provides "space to build relationships, learn from each other's experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring renewed insight and inspiration. It will help develop leadership and develop consciousness, vision, and strategy needed to realize another world."

Green Careers. An accessible career consulting practice "supporting the transition to careers that promote ecological, social and economic sustainability."

Ashevillage Building Convergence (ABC). Possibly an example of a project to be emulated in your town. Various Asheville communities come together to build beautiful neighborhood gathering places, learn sustainable solutions for our city and our world, strengthen connections to each other while celebrating life in Asheville.

I had a comment and it didn't take.  :(

Did you get my email with the William McDonough video?  Your mention of Cradle to Cradle reminded me of it.

I agree with all 5 of your statements and it was all great advice!  As for us as professionals, it is very easy to take the easy and greedy way in or out of something, but what does that give us in the end?  I'm all about having the satisfaction of getting something the RIGHT way...which to me, includes all 5 of those.

Green-o-lina -- glad to see you back with your new green hat!  I love your resource list and I will have to take a little time to explore more in depth.  I am sure your client will find this very helpful.

Thanks for the resources JaneAnne.  I attended a great luncheon today on commercial building sustainability and it is remarkable the trend toward green not just a "fad" but a paradigm shift (catching up with Europe and going back to our US basics from 100 years ago).  Thanks for keeping us so informed!
