BLOOMFIELD – For Joan Thomson, it’s all about going green. Thomson is a real estate broker from Bloomfield who has achieved a broker’s license specializing in being “eco-friendly.”
“Go green, it’s all about conserving energy,” said Thomson. “It’s the way of the future. We’re running out of oil. Our atmosphere is polluted. It’s something we need to do for us, our children and grandchildren.”
Thomson is a real estate broker with Woods Bros Realty in the Lincolnshire Square office. She is the first “Green Designation Realtor” in Nebraska.
Being involved in real estate since 1968, she has traveled and lived all over the country. She has also lived off the electrical grid two times in her life so conserving energy is just the way she lives.
Adding it to her job description was a natural thing to do.
The green designation allows Thomson to promote “green” principles when she lists and sells her real estate listings.
“In my go-green presentation, I use it as a selling concept,” Thomson said. “I show buyers and sellers how much good can come from going green.”
She talks to homeowners about energy efficiency savings with insulation, windows, appliances and heating and cooling systems.
