Energy Café Jan. 23: Home is Where the Green Is
Those green, energy-efficient improvements to your property just might be what a buyer is looking for. Learn about Springfield’s unique green listings in “Home is Where the Green Is” at Ozarks New Energy’s Energy Café on Jan. 23 at the Farmers Gastropub, 6-7:30 p.m.
Zach Miller, an agent with Murney Associates, Realtors, will discuss the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS’ energy efficiency and green features for properties for sale on its MultList checklist. The service, one of the first in the nation, helps identify green improvements and features that buyers are willing to pay for, and sometimes at a premium.
“It helps sellers document features and potential buyers search for them,” said Miller. “It also helps establish long-term data for comparable sales and appraisals.”
Miller has more than 17 years of real estate experience. He is the current president of the Ozarks Green Building Coalition and received its 2009 Volunteer of the Year Award. He has been involved with the Missouri Heartland Green Building Chapter, a local chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, Springfield Home Builders Association and the Green Builders Subcommittee. He serves as the green committee chairperson for the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS and the Multiple Listing Service. He also is currently involved with the city’s Environmental Collaborative and serves on the Springfield/Greene County Green Building Task Force.
Zach has a B.S. degree in business management from Missouri State University. He is a Certified Green Building Professional (GCP) with the National Association of Home Builders and has the Green designation (GRN) with the National Association of REALTORS.
