Hello and welcome to DallasGreenStreets.com. This website is dedicated to helping home buyers and owners green their properties -- saving both money and the environment. Being environmentally aware makes good business sense. I teach Green Real Estate practices to home owners and other real estate professionals


Our home was built in 1983 and had several energy problems that most pre-existing homes have.
But by using new technologies and some basic green methods we've reduced our electric load 41% in 6 years. Our projected saving for 2010 is 46%.

Our usage of Natural Gas has held steady even after we changed our furnace to a more energy efficent model so I want to investigate other options.

I drive a 2007 Toyota Prius and I absolutely love it. My best mileage was 53 mpg from Dallas to Houston.
We travelled from Dallas to Ohio for $65 of gas in 2008. I usually get 43 to 46 mpg on each tank of gas. But there a lots of fuel efficient cars.
UPDATE : My Prius just crossed over 100,000 miles. I've only had one unschedule maintenance issue. A $400 water pump for the battery electrical system. I'm really impressed
Like all home owners we get charged by our city for the water we use. We have a sprinkler system for our yard, a pool, and a hot tub. To save on water we have installed a water reclaimation system which means we have put gutters on our home connected to water barrels and tanks. We have the ability to store 1120 gallons of rain water which we then use in our yard, our garden and our pool.
Our city allows us to recycle plastics, metals, glass and paper. We keep recycling bins at our home and offices. But that's not the only way to help. It's estimated that for every one bag of recycling items we put out on our curb, that 80 bags of waste were created in the manufacturing of those products. We have to reduce as well as recycle.

My partner, Warren, is an organic gardener. He currently has a 4 x 40 foot raised bed organic garden in our back yard where he grows Tomatoes, Onions, Garlic, Peppers, Lettuces, Peas, Cabbage, Potatoes, Beans, Okra, Carrots, Strawberries, Watermelon & Cantaloupe.

Now that he has proven he can be successful at gardening, he has decided to expand. We purchased a vacant lot in Denton (about 20 minutes north) where he has nearly half an acre to till and farm.

When the National Association of Realtors announced the new GREEN Designation I was one of the first 1,000 Realtors in the U.S. to earn the designation and one of the first 100 in Texas to do so. Let me show you how you can save money by either buying a new energy-efficient home or retrofitting your existing home to be more GREEN.
