This is the kind of marriage that brings babies and grandchildren, my non-corporatist friends and cohorts.

The ShelterSmith inside each of us is taking on an increased glow, a patina. The tiny wakes of our caulking guns and foam nozzles, duct mastic fingers, and insulation blowing machines have unearthed a groundswell of respect when we team up with the Mini-split pro and the solar sky-miners. Our tiny wakes resonate; the future brightens, and tomorrow's powers are found dwelling amongst us even as we breathe and blink. 

Real estate agents are hinging doors; when agents share the knowledge from the realm we claim to own, the winners are the buyers, getting Pros to see their homes.

We need RE on our side yesterday, thousands of them. When ONE stands up and says a few nice things about some 'Whole-house Energy Audit' that discovered the leak that explained the pain, the loss, the waste, etc, every momma, every poppa and every single soul takes a blinking sigh of relief that finally there IS a way. People listen to their agent, especially when they DO know what we know.

We just now made friends with people we never met. It's a good day to be an energy auditor in a free world where solar is rising, gratitude for attitude is ripening, and wonder is evaporating in the light.

The good agents will glom onto this avenue to the best builders, the quality in the construction with verifiable assessment, standards and independent proof. Happy buyers will glorify the knowledgeable agents, and money will follow performance in the future, not perfume as in the past.
