Greener Than Thou: Buy Now, Paper-Free

Greener Than Thou is our report on San Francisco’s obsession with all things green, calling bullshit in the poseurs and lavishing praise on those who have secured their place in environmental paradise. Let it mellow longer than most? Holla!

Would you buy or sell a property without signing a contract? One earth-loving, world-saving San Francisco agent honestly believes that you would: After reducing direct mailings to mere email newsletters, said local agent has set her sights on eliminating the 250-300 sheets of paper one transaction usually wastes. "Gone are the days of having to kill a forest to buy or sell a home," people; using the online system, clients can log in at their leisure to "sign" documents electronically. Wait, wait a minute— what's that about carbon offsets? Our saintly agent purchases them at the close of every transaction, that's what. Now that's what we call "cornering the market."
