A believer in sustainability and environmental stewardship, Susan Klos has a
Green Realtor designation from the National Association of Realtors. As a
Green Realtor, she brings expertise on green values and eco-friendly solutions
such as sustainable home retrofitting and environmental improvements including
solar panels, insulation, use of recycled and repurposed materials, waterefficient
landscaping, non toxic pest control and the use of eco-friendly paints,
carpets and finishes.
“Green homes often sell faster and for more money than the average home,”
says Susan. “I’m not only knowledgeable in California real estate practices, but
my NAR Green designation gives me additional expertise to market a home’s
green features or help a client find or create the perfect eco-friendly residence.”
Susan not only talks the green talk, she walks the green walk, having incorporated
many eco-friendly features into her Mar Vista home of 19 years. She specializes
in all residential and multifamily home sales with a focus on Mar Vista,
Palms, Venice, and the Pacific Palisades.
One of her current projects is creating Family Centered Permanent Supportive
Housing opportunities in conjunction with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental
Illness) and the Santa Monica non-profit, Step Up On Second.
Susan is a member of the Mar Vista Community Council’s Green Committee and
a founding member of the Mar Vista Chamber of Commerce. She is also involved
with global projects, volunteering in the economically depressed southern
region of Belize teaching business and marketing skills to Mayan people to
help develop eco-tourism, and assisting with a micro-finance empowerment
project in Nepal.
