The National Association of Home Builders works to protect the interest of both new home builders and buyers.

The National Association of Homebuilders is an organization that focuses on many of the top issues surrounding the construction of new home in the United States.  Not only do they work to protect the interests of builders, but also those of the consumer.  Among their major goals and causes are working toward the preservation of manageable mortgages and down payments for potential homebuyers, raising public awareness of the importance of new home construction to the overall strength of the U.S. economy, and working toward affecting overarching immigration reform.

The NAHB also has prioritized their green building initiative in the last several years.

A recent blog post on the NAHB website discusses the construction of a new standard in green living, known as the VISION Home.  Located in downtown Tuscon’s Armory Park neighborhood, the VISION Home was initially constructed as a means for owner, John Miller to retrofit his longtime home to be on par with current green standards.  The result is a home that was constructed up to the Gold Level of the ICC 700 Nationa Green Building Standard.  It includes the latest in green building technology, like solar panels, zero-VOC paint, and counters constructed from recycled glass.

It’s Green building initiatives like these in addition to their many other projects that make Gary Richetelli a proud member of the NAHB.

Gary is not only a seasoned veteran of the real estate development industry, he is also very active in his community.
