HMI Names First Member Of Exclusive Affiliate Program
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage/DC Joins Affiliate Program
[USPRwire, Wed Sep 05 2007] Doug Malawsky, EVP of Horticultural Asset Management, Inc. (HMI), has announced that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a leading residential and commercial real estate provider in the Greater Washington Metro Market, has signed an agreement to become a member of HMI’s new Real Estate Affiliate Program. Under the terms of the program, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage clients will receive reduced pricing for the assessment.
The assessment process involves the identification, sizing, mapping and general inspection of the landscape trees and shrubs on a property. This information is processed through HMI’s proprietary system and returns current through five-year replacement cost values, a plant health score and plant descriptions, photographs and care and maintenance instructions for each asset. With this information, home sellers and brokers can quantify the value of the landscape assets, and the new homebuyer receives a complete inventory and care guide for the landscape assets.
HMI’s Assessments have been used by real estate agents and brokers to help their clients highlight the types, quality and value of landscaping. The information included in each Assessment is also valuable to a new homeowner as it represents a customized “owner’s manual” with detailed descriptions, care instructions and photos from renowned horticulturist, Dr. Michael Dirr.
