Golden Real Estate is proud to promote and model sustainable practices. Our office is solar-powered, broker Jim Smith drives an electric Chevrolet Volt, and we recycle polystyrene ("Styrofoam") for an increasing number of neighbors who bring that material to our "Styrofoam Corral." Click on the Sustainability link at left to learn about these and many other sustainable practices at Golden Real Estate.
A popular member of our office team is our parrot, Flower, who has the title of "Unlicensed Personal Assistant in Charge of Human Relations." She comes to the office frequently, where she is happy to meet visitors and give them an "autographed" copy of her business card.
Flower was born in the year 2000. As a Yellow-Naped Amazon Parrot, she has a life expectancy of 80 years.
Golden Real Estate has its own moving truck which we make available to our own buyers and sellers, as well as to any buyer of our listings, even when that buyer employs an agent from another brokerage. Unrepresented buyers of our listings also get free labor and gas! (Metro area moves only)
We also lend the truck without charge to local non-profits and community organizations when it is not in use by a client. Altogether, this truck has saved our clients and those organizations an estimated $100,000 in moving costs over the years!
We also use the truck several times a year to take polystyrene from our "Styrofoam Corral" behind our building to a factory where it is recycled. Click on the following YouTube thumbnail to come along on one of those recycling trips!
