A local real estate agent has earned the “green” designation from the National Association of Realtors.

Nicole Brule-Fisher of Realty Executives Southern Arizona is now a certified “EcoBroker,” a release said.

She completed 18 hours of coursework to learn what makes a property green, how clients can evaluate costs and benefits of green building features and practices, how to list and market green homes and buildings, the financial incentives available and more, a release said.

The NAR green designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness and interest in the benefits of resource-efficient buildings and homes.

“As energy costs rise, along with concern for the environment, homeowners are looking for innovative ways to save money and live responsibly,” said Dick Gaylord, NAR’s immediate past president.

Brule-Fisher is the first in Tucson to achieve green designation from the national association, the release said.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
