LEED is driving the Green Build Industry ~Does your Realtor know what to look for?

September 23, 2013 by  


LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, is transforming the way we think about how our buildings and communities are designed, constructed, maintained and operated across the globe. Comprehensive and flexible, LEED is a green building tool that addresses the entire building lifecycle recognizing best-in-class building strategies.

LEED certification provides independent, third-party verification that a building, home or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at achieving high performance in key areas of human and environmental health: Sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.

LEED for Homes is a green home certification system that provides guidance and verification that homes are designed and built to be energy- and resource-efficient and healthy for occupants. LEED can be applied to single and multifamily homes and is intended for both market-rate and affordable housing.

Brent Jones is a LEED certified Realtor, meaning he has extensive training and experience with resale and new construction developments that meet the cutting edge energy and resource-efficient standards today’s savyy customers demand. Does your Realtor know what to look for? Brent does.

Denver Post Article says architect Brad Cloepfil is changing the lanscape of Denver again!

April 15, 2013 by  

The busy corner of Interstates 70 and 25 will be the site of a new residential, retail and office campus that developers hope will remake the image of an intersection known as the traffic-jamming Mousetrap.

The $100 million project, on the grounds of the former Denver Post printing plant, is driven by high design — from its architect, the internationally renowned Brad Cloepfil, who created Denver’s sleek Clyfford Still Museum, to its featured tenants, commercial and residential designers who will locate their showrooms in the main building.

This will be great for property values in the corner of our fair city and I think that this high-design project will be a great addition to the downtown area. I love revitalization!

Does Your Agent Specialize In Modern Architecture?

April 6, 2013 by  

Properties are going under contract very quickly this spring. What’s really exciting to me is the interest in Mid Century Modern homes. Many of the properties with the classic details that define MCM styling are going under contract in record time, many in 3 days or less, and most with multiple offers.

Recently I have received several calls from buyers interested in buying Mid Century Modern homes in the Denver metro area. They were having trouble with their agents who did not know how to look for stylistic homes and seem to not be able to get them to the listings prior to going under contract. My answer to these frustrated buyers is always the same.

If your search for a home is all about structural design and and details, you need to chose an agent whose specialty matches your preferences. When your search criteria go beyond neighborhood boundaries and into the architectural finer points in a hot market like ours, the skills and knowledge of your agent will be the edge you need to get the home you love.

I love all things Mod – well designed Modern Architecture, Vintage Design ~ Mid Century Modern, Contemporary, International, Art Deco, California Contemporary – anything with style. I have specialized in architectural properties for many years. I know the neighborhoods, search terms and community professionals – from agents and architects to appraisers who will help you navigate the home buying process with confidence.

The last 10 Mid Century Modern properties that came on the market were under contract in the first 24 hours….if your agent does not know how to find these properties first, you will miss the boat. 3 out of 10 of those properties were purchased by my buyers. I have the connections and the passion to get you in the house fast, write the strongest offer and close successfully without drama.

I would be delighted to help you make your lifestyle dreams a reality. Give me a call or text me at 720.732.1525, and let’s move you into the coolest home in town. If you prefer email, my address is homehjones@comcast.net.
