NAI Horizon Congratulates Hunter Null on LEED® Green Associate Accreditation

NAI Horizon is proud to offer the expertise of Hunter Null, newly accredited LEED® Green Associate.

Hunter Null, Associate Agent at NAI Horizon and LEED® Green Associate, is skilled in the acquisition and leasing of LEED-certified facilities. “LEED-certified buildings are becoming more and more popular within the commercial real estate industry due to their environmental sustainability and operational savings, which in many cases result in little to no increase in building costs,” says Null. Ultimately, LEED is good for business; LEED certification boosts bottom lines, makes properties more competitive, limits risk, and attracts tenants.

In addition to Null’s services, NAI Horizon is also equipped in the property management of LEED Green facilities with Jolyn Safranek, Property Manager and LEED® Green Associate. In addition to her LEED certification, Safranek has 12 years of Property Management experience, is a licensed broker in Arizona, and has earned the RPA designation from the Building Owners and Managers Association.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. LEED-certified buildings are designed to lower operations costs, increase asset value, reduce waste, conserve energy, and qualify for tax rebates, zoning allowances and other incentives.
