A Wee Bit About Him~~For those of you who are fans of CRAIG'S, it will come as no surprise that he is one of the esteemed winners in the Green is Red Hot Contest.  He understands the  willingness and importance of "giving back"... knows a lot about improving photos used in advertising homes that are for sale, and, believe it or not...never really wrote until he arrived at the Active Rain Community! Seriously!
(New Members take heart!...hint, hint)

James Frazier"...this is gold star stuff here. What a thoughtful conclusion."  Carole Cohen "Thanks for the post. Speaking volumes as usual."  William Collins, Broker Associate


SHINING THROUGH...Our 2nd Place Winner

Recycling a Full Circle Moment. The  article donated by this Emerald -Green Gem really connects the dots. Our Star absolutely captures the spirit of stewardship and brings it home to the real estate profession which is what the contest was all about.  

 T'is  one Fine Example of the energy and spirit, the very real power of shared knowledge.

 Craig Schiller Recycling a Full Circle Moment

 

 

Congratulations Craig!

Your article talked to us about how we real estate professionals fit in the "green" market picture...and how we can get up to speed in the that market. Just like dancing, there's a lot to learn!   We have to consider results we might expect... think about what really works for us and our clients...get our minds and hearts involved. ...and look at  what rewards we think actually will show up, and on what levels... while de-cluttering, as you point out.

Great advice for real estate professionals, stagers,  and our clients!

 

Hey! Is he wearing Green? Nah!

Craig,you are a fabulous writer and did a superb job tying in so cleverly how as Americans we keep China pumping out all those THINGS we just HAVE to have and if we just STOP buying and DE-CLUTTER, wouldn't the world be so much better off...a great message and quite clever. Loved your article.  Congratulations

It seems to me with your skills, you should be taking on an apprentice, too!

Congratulations Craig!  I  am getting to work and getting rid of the clutter in my house!  In fact, one way I have found not to be such a packrat is the take all the stuff to the good will and the soup kitchen.  They love it and the people who want this stuff do not have enought clutter -- so it all works out -- recycle the clutter -- and it is about quality of life -

First of all......As I read your applause for Craig in the form of these comments , I realized how  much the effort and energy Craig put into his article was appreciated.

His prize-winning article stunningly represents the idea that there is a place for us as  real estate professionals  in the "green" market picture...All of us who read Craig's essay were struck with the clarity of his vision. We think he offers us great advice !

EVERYONE: We have been delighted with the articles that were written for the Green is Red Hot Contest sponsored by the ECO-All-Stars Group. We hope that you will check out all the articles that were posted on our Group and that YOU will enter (again) next year!

Craig - you have a way with words and the way you live your life that really inspires. So glad to know you via cyberspace...what a world we live in...the good, the bad, and the ugly. You have given purpose to the ugly black murky water and the visual is permanently engraved in my mind. Thank you so much.
