One of the value statements on Golden Real Estate’s yard signs says “Promoting & Modeling Environmental Responsibility.” We know of no other company with such a statement on its signs.
In 2010, Golden Real Estate won Golden’s Sustainability Award for Business because of its sustainable practices. For example, we go beyond normal recycling by having a “Styrofoam Corral” behind our office. Anyone can drop of their clean, white polystyrene (aka “Styrofoam”, which is a brand name) for recycling. Every 6 to 8 weeks we have collected enough of this material to fill our box truck and take to a polystyrene factory in Denver. That box truck is also offered free to the clients of our agents (at no expense to the agent). If you drive a plug-in vehicle, as I do, you can charge it free, with electricity generated by our solar panels.
Agents also enjoy free car washes, free Showcase service on realtor.com, free Centralized Showing Service for listings, free open house signs, free sign riders, free virtual tours and video tours, free color printing, and no desk fees or “administrative commissions.” If you are a seasoned agent who finds these benefits appealing, please call me!
