Tracy, CA Real Estate Transaction Coordinator Plants A Tree For Every Closed Escrow

For those of you who don’t know, I spend the daylight hours as an Office Manager and Transaction Coordinator for a real estate company in Northern California – that’s where my title ends, but my duties go way beyond, ultimately landing me as the all around “go-to” person; when all else fails, ask Hilary is basically the motto at my office.

Mostly it’s a pretty thankless job, but every once in awhile something comes along that reminds me that I am actually contributing to society and doing good for the world.

Yesterday was one of those times.

At our office meeting yesterday morning, I was awarded with a certificate in honor of the 25 trees that have been planted in my name. When I have an escrow for which a Natural Hazard Report is needed I order it from National Disclosure Authority and by doing so a tree is planted at the close of the transaction. The 25 trees I was awarded for today are from the year’s first quarter, so I’m probably closer to 50 by now.

Those 25 trees cover a quarter of an acre of land…..

One quarter of an acre of trees removes 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide and gives off 1 ton of oxygen. These amounts will offset the greenhouse gases emitted from your car and home this year. By planting trees, we are making a real and dramatic contribution to preserving and enhancing the environment.

You hear that? I’m making a real and dramatic contribution to preserving and enhancing the environment.

Yup, I’m saving the world.

Jealous much?

real estate going green

    LOL! Congrats, Hilary! Woohoo!!!!! Trees are great and good for us too! I hope other businesses, be it real estate or not, follow the example you have set.

    Care though….no one likes a pompous winner.

    Cool that you are responsible for nearly 50 new trees.
    That reminds me of a child’s poem my nephew used to recite when he was just a tiny guy…

    A little seed for me to sow.
    A little dirt to make it grow.
    A little sun, a little shower,
    A little wish and then
    A great big flower.

    Go green, girl,
    ~Ikeman
