Deb's Home Recycling (aka Residential Resale)

By
Real Estate Agent - Realty Pro Albuquerque
My blog is as much about a philosophy of life and living as it is about real estate as a business. E.F. Shumacher subtitled his book SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL "Economics as if People Mattered" In the real estate industry we realize that people matter and that where they live matters. We now also have a larger responsiblity, I believe, to get them to consider HOW they live. Everyone in the developed world using less energy and resources makes it possible for those who have access to neither to experience a better life and to make the difference between their being able to having a roof overhead or not or for their children to eat or not.

My last post talked about the current legal issue going on in my little burg. The Council decided to ban the parking of "Big Rigs" on residential property. Of course, they do have to have some public comment on this, and boy, did they. The truckers came out in force. Many of them talked about the...

 I was reading the local paper in which there is a section on the Editorial Page entitled Rants and Raves. Someone had taken it upon themselves to rant about a neighbors boat and how he was glad that the snow had "accomplished what the city failed to do" by making the big boat invisible for a few...

 I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Probably both are equally appropriate. Driving to meet a client this morning I heard on the radio that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had bought and are moving into a mansion in the French Quarter. Oddly enough, when they descibed the home, I remembered seeing...

 Most of us are aware that "green" building is going mainstream. Most of us realize that it behooves us to mention features like passive solar heating, active solar systems, themal windows insulation upgrades or energy rated appliances and systems in our listing and advertising materials. Unfortu...

 One of the things that makes the thought of living in a smaller space so frightening for many people is the thought of not having anywhere to put their stuff. The first step, of course, is to let go of some of the stuff--especially the boxes you haven't looked in for over 2 years. The second ste...

 I was leafing through a past issue of Innovative Homes Magazine the other day, looking for an article I had promised to give to a client. In the process, I came across a reminder that the pracical application of prefab building has not only been with us for awhile, but has enjoyed a great popula...

In a previous post I said that I would talk about the Women's Bean Project as a model of how to look at a different approach to helping the homeless and hungry. I have always been partial to giving fishing lessons instead of handing out fish dinners.Sixteen years ago a social worker in a Domestic...

 Was with some clients who are looking for a home atha will accomodate their need for a studio space and their love of the outdoors. Unlike most folks these days, they are not concerned about the size of the house; in fact, they prefer smaller to larger. They reminded me of Frank Lloyd Wright's p...

  I do not know Cindy Ollerton but she is proof positive to me of what is possible with clear thinking, good networking and a talent for simple, strightforward action. As a result of the desire to do something positive and healing in the wake of the September 11 World Trade Center disaster she wo...

I don't drink alcohol, but for those of you who do I would like to recommend wines from Stoller Vineyards in Dayton, Oregon. The vineyards technology uses renewable resources to make their wine. More than 50% of the land outside the buildings was restored with a native meadow mix. After two years...
