GreenSmart®'s Journey toward Healthier Homes
Motivated by the hope of a healthier home for her family, Pattie Glenn spearheaded an innovative Florida Team of REALTORS® in 1996, to pioneer the start-up of award-winning, market-driven, high performance ENERGY STAR® Communities in Alachua County.
This led to founding her company, GreenSmart®, Inc. in 1999, which has maintained a registered Federal Trademark and Service Mark since 2002 for green consulting in lending, marketing and sales, green building certification, and sustainable land development, along with developing environmental educational materials, including creating the Psychographics of the Green Consumer and the GreenSmart® Pro 101 Designation Course. In 2013, Glenn earned a 215 Insurance License and graduated Valedictorian from Full Sail University with a BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment.
Inducted in 1997 as a Member of the NAHB Institute of Residential Marketing, Glenn served as instructor for many of NAHB’s University of Housing’s designation courses, including Master Certified Green Professional; Land Development, Acquisition and Financing; and Certified New Home Sales Professional Courses. Touted as the nation's first Green Realtor, Glenn delivered her first GreenSmart® training to educate REALTORS® how to go green at NAR's 2003 Conference in Chicago. Glenn was also spokesperson and trainer for The GBI, in their 2004 national rollout of NAHB's Green Model Guidelines.
Glenn's altruism includes anti-domestic violence advocacy, volunteering with seniors, and helping families impacted by traumatic brain injury. She sings in the praise choir at Grace United Methodist Church, and is also solo vocalist for the Gainesville Big Band. Married for twenty years to her husband, Rick, Glenn’s passion for creative writing is often inspired by a gaggle of wildly creative grandchildren.
