Deb's Home Recycling (aka Residential Resale)

By
Real Estate Agent - Realty Pro Albuquerque
My blog is as much about a philosophy of life and living as it is about real estate as a business. E.F. Shumacher subtitled his book SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL "Economics as if People Mattered" In the real estate industry we realize that people matter and that where they live matters. We now also have a larger responsiblity, I believe, to get them to consider HOW they live. Everyone in the developed world using less energy and resources makes it possible for those who have access to neither to experience a better life and to make the difference between their being able to having a roof overhead or not or for their children to eat or not.

Now and then I write a blog about remodeling and reuse of existing space. Sometimes it is just too true that a picture is worth a thousand words.
