Working hard towards a future of healthy, safe, sustainable and efficiently improved homes in Chicago and the North Shore.

 
Chicago’s residential GREEN designated sales team.
A team of brokers dedicated to promoting healthy home principles


The Gramata Realty Group was founded in 2010 and is a real estate group of brokers affiliated with At Properties Worldwide LLC with a focus on residential real estate sales and marketing in Chicago and the North Shore. 

The Group is a team of six full time agents and one part-time agent with over $20,000,000 in sales in 2012 and continuously a top-producing team in the region. 

In 2013, The Gramata Realty Group’s full-time brokers all have been awarded the National Association of REALTORS’ Green Designation, the only green real estate professional designation recognized by NAR.

Our group achieved this prestigious designation after completing course work designed specifically for brokers dedicated to the healthy homes principles outlined in The Healthy Homes Chicago Initiative.  The courses were created in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of industry experts from across the country; ensuring our team designees gained a comprehensive knowledge of green homes and buildings and understand the issues of sustainability in relation to real estate.
More specifically, The Gramata Realty Group was trained in understanding what makes a property green, helping clients evaluate the cost/benefits of green building features and practices, distinguishing between industry rating and classification systems, listing and marketing green homes and buildings, discussing the financial grants and incentives available to homeowners, and helping consumers see a property’s green potential. 

“Living green is about making healthy choices that are also easy on your wallet. NAR Green Designees have the necessary resources & relationships to effectively work with you on your next green project.” said Kristen Short, Executive Director of NAR’s Green Designation.  NAR’s Green Designation was developed in response to growing consumer awareness of the benefits of resource-efficient homes and buildings. The designation helps consumers who care about energy efficiency and sustainable building practices identify REALTORS® who can help them realize their green real estate and lifestyle goals.

As an NAR Green Designee, each team member of The Gramata Realty Group has gained the knowledge and the tools necessary to become a trusted green resource for Chicago and the North Shore Villages and looking to expand to other neighborhood and communities throughout the region.

The Healthy Homes Chicago Initiative continues to research answers to this primary question: How might we communicate our mission to encourage, advance, support, enable and make aware the importance of healthy homes and communities in our neighborhoods throughout Chicagoland?

  1. Providing green real estate professionals with the awareness and knowledge of green building principles applied in residences and communities. This allows agents to list and market homes with green features, as well as guide buyer-clients, in purchasing green real estate.

  2. Encouraging green real estate professionals to be advocates in spreading the green philosophy and act as a positive force for creating sustainable and energy efficient communities.

  3. Advancing the belief that every step toward green is a step in the right direction.

  4. Supporting member efforts with numerous resources, green industry news, referrals, marketing tools and consumer/builder awareness campaigns.

  5. Enabling green real estate professionals to incorporate green principles into their practice.

  6. Providing on-going information, tools and support about green building features, thus enabling members to be leaders in the marketplace.
