Sustainability


The Fort Collins Board of REALTORS sustainability efforts are overseen primarily by our Sustainability Committee. The Sustainability Committee is one of the first of its kind for REALTOR® associations in the country.

This web page is meant to serve as an information source for REALTOR® members and the community alike. Below you will find information on FCBR’s sustainability efforts as well as green efforts in our community. Check back often for more information.

Should you have questions please feel free to contact James Mitchell, FCBR’s Sustainability Committee Chair, at  jwmitchell@thegroupinc.com or call FCBR at 970-223-2900.

FCBR’s Sustainability Committee works on sustainability initiatives and promotes awareness of green issue via events and education. They also oversee our annual FCBR Recycling Challenge and Green Awards program. This committee meets on the first Tuesday of each month at the FCBR offices from 1-2pm.

FCBR’s Annual Green Awards are given out each year. Awards are given out to an individual REALTOR® and Affiliate member and one office winner each year. Apply now:  Green Office / Green REALTOR / Green Affiliate


Financing Energy Efficiency

It can be a purchase or a renovation, but from the moment energy efficiency enters the conversation, the central question becomes, “How do I pay for this?” Fortunately, there are several loan programs in Colorado that can help prospective homebuyers finance the cost of energy efficient improvements or help reduce costs on a new home that is already energy efficient. These loan programs include a built in subsidy that greatly reduces the cost of the loan, making such home improvements affordable for most homeowners. So, if the house needs insulation, air sealing, furnace replacement, new windows, a hot water heater, or if “going solar” is part of the home buying or home improving plan, there are now solid options for providing the required funds.
