zHome Project Tour for Real Estate Agents

On Thursday, November 10th, 12-2pm, we will be hosting a professional zHome project tour for area real estate agents.

zHome, which was just completed in September, is a 10-unit townhome development located in Issaquah, WA, which represents a radical acceleration of ultra-sustainable housing. This is one of the 1st multi-family projects in the country to combine targeted net zero energy use with geothermal heating, grid-tied solar electricity, a 70% reduction in water use, rainwater catchment and recycling for flushing toilets and clothes washing, low impact development practices and a number of other green building practices.

zHome’s public educational tours, which ran through the end of October, brought 7000+ people through the site to learn about these sustainable technologies. Now we want to provide a similar experience geared towards real estate agents, whose knowledge of ever-evolving green building practices is a key component in advancing the green home market.

The tour and Q&A session, will be lead by zHome Project Manager Nick Nied, whose passion for this project has him actively involved in education as well. As professionals working with builders, buyers and sellers, this opportunity to learn more about zHome’s sustainable features, practices and certifications, as well as green homes in general, will be invaluable to you. Keep yourself at the forefront of this industry!

If you are a LEED AP or LEED Green Associate this presentation can qualify for CE credits needed for maintaining your credentials (see LEED CE Activities).

Thursday, Nov 10th, 12-2pm – light lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Take Exit 18 on I-90, head N on Highlands DR, turn right on High St & look for the homes with the solar panels! Parking available on adjacent side streets.
