Northern Virginia REALTORS® Go Green

The Northern Virginia Association of REALTORS® cut the red ribbon on its new “green” headquarters building in September.

The $11.5 million building project adheres to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) guidelines and features earth-friendly bamboo flooring, recycled construction materials, and large windows and glass office walls that maximize natural light. Plus, the association is committed to using less-toxic cleaning products and recycled paper products throughout the building.

NVAR also held a successful Green Conference in October that covered the future of retrofitting and green features for new construction, and how to sell, appraise, and finance green homes.
