As newlyweds twenty years ago, Amanda Boren and husband James Boren lived on a 35’ sailboat exploring the Caribbean and a jungle river in Guatemala. Using solar panels and wind generation for renewable energy they experienced simple living on the sea and off the land. The impressions made during that sailing adventure remain with the couple and continue to influence the manner in which they approach both their work and their life to this day.
After graduating from the University of South Carolina with a Business degree in Marketing and Real Estate Amanda began her career with home building products manufacturer Georgia Pacific. She later moved on to working with husband James, a builder by trade, in their building design, construction and sales business, was an independent mortgage broker, and most recently broker | realtor for another local company. In addition, Amanda and James are building another Green Built home for themselves, using site harvested trees as flooring and accents in their home.
Since settling in the Asheville area over 8 years ago Amanda has focused on the green building market for Green Earth Developments’ residential projects as a key team member involved in both the design and marketing of 25 homes. Amanda is an active member of the WNC Green Building Council. Her combined knowledge of construction, the building process, design, Green Homes and financing are invaluable to her buyers as well as her sellers.
“Being a Realtor was the perfect avenue for me to share what I know and to be of assistance in helping people find the home that is right for them. Asheville allows us to live our passion, which is sustainable and healthy green building.”
