ISLE OF PALMS, SC REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL IS FIRST SOUTH CAROLINA REALTOR TO EARN ECOBROKER® DESIGNATION. BUYERS AND SELLERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CONTACT DENNIS SAMUELSON FOR INFORMATION ON THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY, “GREEN,” COMFORT, AND HEALTH-RELATED FEATURES OF HOMES AND BUILDINGS.
ISLE OF PALMS, SC – OCTOBER 15, 2006 – Dennis Samuelson, of Carolina Coastal Properties in Isle of Palms has earned the EcoBroker Certified® designation, having successfully completed a unique and informative training program on the energy and environmental issues that affect real estate transactions. Dennis is the first in South Carolina to complete the certification and joins the movement of professionals
across the nation pushing the real estate market toward energy-efficient, sustainable, and healthier design/features in homes and buildings. The “performance home” movement is getting a boost thanks to this type of high quality real estate professional earning the EcoBroker designation. EcoBrokers®, like Dennis, throughout the country are forging this market and creating competitive advantages for their customers. With national surveys indicating that 80% of consumers consider themselves
“green-minded,” real estate professionals with the EcoBroker designation are in a better position to serve the real estate consumer. “I’m always looking for the best ways to offer my clients the best value. My EcoBroker training helps me ensure customer satisfaction, my number one priority,” Samuelson explains. “From windows to moisture control to energy savings, I now have more resources at my disposal to help my buyers and sellers make better real estate decisions. The EcoBroker designation doesn’t
make me an energy and environmental expert, but it allows me to better understand the issues and to convey this understanding to my buyers and sellers.”
EcoBroker International’s education and designation program is designed exclusively for real estate professionals who care about the environment and want to help their clients benefit from the energy-efficiency, “green,” and healthier features of homes and buildings. EcoBroker provides a complete curriculum of energy and environmental
training to licensed real estate agents. Real estate professionals must complete the extensive EcoBroker curriculum and training and fulfill additional program requirements to become Certified EcoBrokers®. “Dennis Samuelson, is an example of the quality real estate professional the EcoBroker designation continues to attract,” explains EcoBroker International’s CEO, Dr. John Beldock. “These real estate professionals are not only distinguishing themselves in a competitive market place, but
they are really giving back to the community in very constructive and meaningful ways. The Charleston area needs more contributors like Dennis. The planet and our grandchildren need them too,” Dr. Beldock said.
From his Isle of Palms office, Dennis explains, “With EcoBrokerÒ training, I have broadened the range of real estate opportunities I offer my clients. Whether the transaction involves environmental assessment and mitigation (mold, etc.) or the opportunity to reduce utility bills, I’m in a position to help. The real estate industry is changing, and to best serve my
clients I need to understand the newest designs, technologies, and environmental issues. My EcoBroker designation helps me stay ahead of the game.”
Samuelson earned his EcoBroker Certified® designation in October and is wasting no time in putting the tools and additional expertise to work. Dennis has already found that being a Certified EcoBroker® creates added value and customer satisfaction that sets him apart from other agents. For example, at a recent listing presentation, Samuelson was able to show the prospective sellers how he can highlight the benefits of their tankless hot water system,
variable speed HVAC blower, Energy Star windows and appliances, as well as the added insulation in the home.. He also suggested an inexpensive review by a home energy rater. His innovative energy and environmental perspective gave him an edge in winning the listing. Samuelson says he is looking forward to continuing to positively impacting the quality, durability, comfort, safety, and cost-effectiveness of homes and commercial buildings.
