Macrealty goes Green thanks to idea from Patricia Houlihan!
1. Encourage realtors to drive greener vehicles
2. Encourage realtors to drive less (Patricia would like to be the running, riding realtor but her clients aren't quite there yet!)
3. Buy carbon credits to compensate for the emissions created in selling real estate....
Macdonald Realty is believed to be the first real estate
company in North America to offer carbon neutral real estate
transactions. Dan Scarrow, head of the MacGreen program said:
"One of our agents, Patricia Houlihan, came to us and said her clients were expressing interest in a program like this. We hope it will be a benefit to our clients and the environment". When interviewed in REM magazine Patricia said: Realtors and the public should stop expecting realtors to drive fancy cars as a sign of success. The public believes, falsely, that if you are a successful realtor you will drive a big, fancy, polluting car. The first choice should be to drive less and to drive more fuel efficient vehicles... and then to offset.
