Isaac Chavez, EcoBroker in Montpelier, Vermont:  Isaac is now at the helm of Vermont REALTORS.  In 2015, under Isaac's leadership, Vermont REALTORS presented their first Green Symposium, drawing 225 attendees from the real estate, appraisal and building communities in both New Hampshire and Vermont. The event made high performance properties and proper disclosure accessible to a wide audience and will have ripple effects over the years in terms of protection of consumers, as well as driving interest in specialty designations such as EcoBroker.
