Healthy Homes for Sale

We periodically get phone calls from people asking if we know of any EcoNests for sale or rent. Often times, they will add, "I am willing to move anywhere to find a healthy home." More often than not, the answer is no. Currently, however, we have two healthy homes we can recommend!
