Seattleite One of 5 Winners of National EverGreen AwardNov – Dec 2014 – NWREporter
For REALTOR® Kim Mulligan, being green is not only easy, it’s about to make her the recipient of national recognition. On November 9, she will be honored as one of only five winners of the 2014 EverGreen Award from the Green REsource Council.
Mulligan, a broker in Seattle, is the only winner from the Pacific Northwest. The award will be presented this month during the annual REALTORS® Conference & Expo in New Orleans.
The EverGreen Award recognizes dedication to green lifestyle and work style, commitment to the advancement of the Green Building Industry, green industry skills as evidenced by training, competency and experience, and creative implementation of green events and practices in one’s office or community. Candidates for the award must be active participants in the Green REsource Council, other professional associations, and in community organizations.
Mulligan joined Cooper Jacobs in 2010 (and is now with HomeSmart Real Estate Associates), but claims a lifelong interest in sustainability through her background as a specialty tradesperson and experience in property management. Her professional credentials include a Green Designation from the National Association of REALTORS®, which is conferred upon completion of a rigorous training program on energy efficiency and sustainable homes. Only a couple dozen REALTORS® in Seattle are Green designees.
Among her community activities, Mulligan chaired the Northwest Green Home Tour, an annual showcase of sustainable and green new homes, remodels and energy retrofits around the Greater Seattle area.
The Green REsource Council was established by the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS®. Its members have access to ongoing education, leading edge green resources and marketing tools to help them promote green real estate practices.
