At the inception of EcoLiving Property, we aimed to have a positive impact on the properties we touched and the communities surrounding them. We wanted to inspire others to follow our influence and see how homes can be renovated in a mindful way which reduces harm to the environment. We knew with every project we would find ways to improve our own system; increase the sustainable ideas and decreasing the waste. We knew we would face challenges and that others would doubt our ability to accomplish our goals.
What I failed to realize is the positive impact we would have within our own house and with the next generation EcoLiving home rehabber. My daughter has absorbed so much of the business from how we preview a property and estimate repairs, to what products we use in our projects and how we market. She can recite many of the things I tell to real estate agents, contractors and fellow investors about our business. And she is excited about some day being responsible for her own project. Now if she could differentiate between colors/patterns of her own preference and the preferences of the majority of buyers I would say she is about ready.
This knowledge and experience will give her financial security early in life by recognizing the value of real estate and understanding the business. Even better, she identifies the desire to protect the environment. I have no doubt my daughter will continue to improve our processes and share the positive influence until the environment will no longer need protection. I’m just grateful to be planting the seeds.
