Cyndee, great information for people who live in the area. If you go please do share the ideas they have with us here in the rain.

Cyndee - I am intrigued by the whole green building ideas. Does Florida have a lot of green building? We do not here.

Cyndee I love the idea of green living. We have the wind power in NM which is really starting to pick up subscribers, as well as several green builders. Are you able to go to this expo?
Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) over 11 years ago

Mana - I definitely will share - it's amazing all the ideas creative people can come up with.

Paula - we have lots going on - incorporating into what we're doing - we don't have much new construction here so we have to work it into what we already have or as we remodel homes and buildings.

Ashley - how interesting - is the wind power more expensive? I don't know if I can make it - I'm going to try though.

Does recycled toilet paper count?

Cyndee It cost about $12 a month more for the average use. A small price for clean energy. I wrote a blog about it I am sure you will be reading soon!

Posted by Ashley Drake Gephart (Drake Intel Group) over 11 years ago

Cyndee,

Green building seems to be picking up a lot of momentum I hope you can attend and learn even more information to help out your clients.  When we were moving from Tennessee several years ago TVA was starting to sell energy from renewable resources for a slightly higher rate.

green green green - it certainly is the wave of the future a lot of cities are making changes in codes to require green building it is important that Realtors and the public stay on top of this information.

GREEN - GREEN - I LOVE IT!!  What a great exhibit!!  We leave for GA next weekend or I could stop over.  There's so much to learn about helping preserve our natural surroundings.  I could definitely use more education here...
Posted by Susie Roscoe, Real Estate Specialist | Brandon, FL (Signature Realty Associates) over 11 years ago
I'm so happy to see our beautiful state doing things like this! Hopefully our side will have an expo like this soon!
Posted by Lysa Napolitano over 11 years ago
Jack - you are a nut - but we'll get you fully up to speed yet!!! That's a start :-)
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Ashley - that sure seems like a bargain - wow it's great to know it's coming so far and really financially viable for use in our homes and businesses.

Nice to see such an expo and your support should help get the word out to your community.  In my "previous life" working on environmental policy I quickly learned that without the support of the consumer it doesn't matter how great the technology.  We need people to embrace going green.  Thanks for doing your part!
Posted by Tina Howell, Little Elm & Frisco Area Real Estate (RE/MAX DFW Associates VI) over 11 years ago
Rita - Ashley was saying the same thing - in Alburquerque it's only about $12 more, that seems like a real bargain.

Susie - Enjoy your green vacation out in nature next week. :-)

Lysa, I agree - I'm still learning so much myself and it's great to have it all accessible in one place too. I thought of you when i was out yesterday and saw some Blue Heron's and other birds - tried to get good shots but you must have a much better camera than me - if I got too close they were gone :-) - I'll just have to enjoy your great photos.
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Wow Tina - you learn something new everyday - I'd love to hear more about your "past life" some time. You're right - no matter what it is in life - "marketing" creates the demand and actual utilization. I think it's great that they are making it a fun famiy event because if kids embrace these concepts early we're half way there...

Cyndee - yes, I got my grad degree in environmental policy and I worked for a long time for the Maryland State Legislature crafting policy.  I was fortunate that the Governor & the state of Maryland wanted to be ahead of the curve when it came to environmental protection & conservation.  Now that I'm in real estate so many people ask if I miss the environmental work, but I just explain how it all ties together. 

You are right about kids too.  Educate them early.  Remember the old saying "can't teach dog new tricks."  My 5 year old wouldn't know what to do without our recycling bin.

Posted by Tina Howell, Little Elm & Frisco Area Real Estate (RE/MAX DFW Associates VI) over 11 years ago
Tina - that's exactly what I was thinking - my kids are the same way and they are the first to get on someone for littering - next it will be demanding replenishable energy and so much more. You're right I can see  how you're background would tie well into real estate. Thanks for sharing more about yourself. 
Posted by Cyndee Haydon, 727-710-8035 Clearwater, Beach Short Sales Luxury Condos &Homes (Charles Rutenberg Realty) over 11 years ago
Cyndee...if you do attend please share, you can say I am very GREEN about being GREEN!  I saw that Tina mentioned something about recycling....we are one of the few house on the block with a full recycling bin every week...so I guess we are doing some of our part!
Posted by Kim Murphy, Mortgage Loans in DuPage, Kane, Cook, Lake, Will C (Draper and Kramer) over 11 years ago
Kim thank you for visiting - I hope to make it there - if I do I'll bring the info back - love it that you're GREEN!

Cyndee, I have a Cannon Power Shot S1 IS It is a good little camera, but I would love to upgrade to a Rebel XTi. Remember, the great blue heron in my shots trusts me, she is normally 2 feet away. By the way she is back! I have tons of photos of her so nothing new was posted, but I did post some new visitors and one on our other Florida Snow Birds, the reason why I went with that camera. :)
Posted by Lysa Napolitano over 11 years ago
Lysa - i have a Canon too - love how easy they are to use and usually pretty happy with the pictures. Yes the Rebel would be great! I'll look forward to seeing more pictures. :-)

Go Green!  I just heard on the news this morning of a new community in the area where the builder is going  ALL green!  It's a concept picking up momentum fast.  Good thing our expert is getting on board quickly!

Posted by Leah Ross, Tampa, Florida Mortgage (Your Tampa Bay Mortgage Source) over 11 years ago
Leah - Wow that is great news - you'll have to tell me which neighborhood that is - maybe we can check it out together. thanks for stopping by and commenting and rating my article :-)

Recycling toilet paper -- GROSS!

Thanks Cyndee for highlighting what is going on in your area!

Green is good and becoming a big issue with many homeowners here.  Bamboo products are the new rage and are well worth looking into for flooring and cabinets.  Beautiful and durable.
