Your Energy-Wise Sales Team

Energy-Wise Realty has all the appeal and proximity of a local realtor, but with the experience of a realty giant! We will guide you through every aspect of the purchase or sale of residential real estate in the San Luis Obispo area. Energy-Wise Realty provides that "hometown" know-how you won't find anywhere else.  All of our realtors were raised and still live in the area, and are experts at answering any questions you may have about the community. 

Energy-Wise Realty was created out of a need for Real Estate professionals to understand the energy features and benefits of homes built today and to be able to convey those features to buyers. Homes built under the latest 2016 California Energy Code achieve a high level of energy efficiency compared to existing homes. According to the California Energy Commission "single family homes built to the 2016 standards will use about 28% less energy for lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, and water heating than those built to the 2013 standards. On average the 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards will increase the cost of constructing a new home by about $2700, but will save $7400 in energy and maintenance costs over 30 years." The goal of Energy-Wise Realty is to transfer awareness of this value benefit to home buyers today. 

Whether you're moving out, moving in or just moving on, let us help you find the property that exceeds your demands.
