How We’ll Help You Buy Or Sell A Home

Our Process For Helping You and The Environment

The process of finding the right real estate agent, buying a home, or selling a home can be one of the most stressful experiences of your life - so it is essential you are prepared with all of the information you might need. Here's how we can help you land the home of your dreams.
Find An Agent
Find An Agent
Step 1


Preparing your home to sell is more than just marketing, it is about preparing you and your family for the emotional process ahead. We will meet to listen to every one of your preferences and work tirelessly to make this emotional sales process as thoroughly enjoyable as possible. We will also prepare a personalized analysis of the value of your home based on neighborhood-specific data and local market trends.
Step 2


We offer the most extensive marketing package our industry has to offer. Professional home staging, professional photography, internet marketing, 3D-Home-Scanning, and whatever else it takes. We answer the phone 12+ hours a day and will answer any questions potential buyers may have about your home. And we will be sure to get you the best possible price and terms.
Step 3

Under Contract

Once we accept an offer we won’t let our guard down for a second. We will be certain to represent your best interests all the way to the closing table, and if necessary, stand firm on our initial agreement. We are committed to brokering deals where both parties are happy at the end of the day. Here at Climate Change Realty, we aren’t afraid of doing any and all work necessary to put out some fires.
Step 1


Before you start looking at homes it’s great to know what your viable options are. Speaking with a lender and getting a pre-approval is the first step towards buying a new home. Before shopping, we will meet to go over all of your preferences and get a great feel for exactly what it is you are looking for and the amount of time you have to dedicate to getting it.
Step 2


Now it’s time to enter the field. We will relentlessly scan the market for you at all times to make sure that we are the first to know when your dream home appears. When the time comes, we will negotiate the most competitive price and terms to make sure we are the winning offer, and if not, we won’t give up until we are.
Step 3

Under Contract

Now that we’ve agreed to the price and terms, we must ensure we can meet them. We will stay with you every step of the way to make sure every document is sent on time, every contingency clause is met, and all of the funding ends up right there with us at the closing table. Believe me it will all be worth it in the end.
Step 1

Understanding You And Your Market

We will connect you with the perfect real estate agent to suit your needs. The real estate sales process can be emotionally draining, tedious, and deeply personal. It is essential you feel comfortable with your real estate professional. We will cover all of your preferences so we can find an ideal agent for you.
Step 2

Finding The Right Agent For You

Now that we understand who you are, how you want to do business, and what you’re looking for, we can tap our network with the utmost precision. We will find you the perfect match, negotiate all necessary terms, and connect you with the best possible professional in your local market.
Step 3

Picking Your Real Estate Agent

Time to meet! We will match you with a real estate professional in your local area and let you make the final decision. You have no obligation to choose anyone we send your way, but they will definitely be the best option tailored to your specific needs.

See what our client's say about working with us

The moment my husband and I invited Ethan into our home, we knew he would be our agent for a future relocation. His passion for making the world a better place through his business model, and the personalized service he provides are truly exceptional. Ethan returns calls, emails, and texts within a few minutes. He hires stagers for showings, and recommendations for repairs. I highly recommend Ethan Shapiro to help sell or buy a home!
Carol Meyers
Ethan worked tirelessly for several months selling our condo, keeping in touch and occasionally visiting us. He gave us suggestions about finding good realtors for buying our next home. The fact he contributes about half the income he gets from each sale shows he shares our concerns for the most dangerous long term threat to life. We get to decide among many organizations that it can be given to. He is very personable and is not in a rush to end any conversation. He has mastered the Boulder area and we doubt that there is a neighborhood that he doesn't understand enough to start selling there.
Dan Dlugose
Ethan Shapiro was very motivated to help my wife and I find just the right house for us to buy in Longmont. He went the extra mile to look at a mountain home in Sunshine Canyon and offered insights and opinions about different homes we looked at that helped us avoid wasting our time looking at or buying homes that had issues, structural defects, or other problems that we would have overlooked or missed entirely. His professionalism and attention to detail is very much appreciated. We highly recommend Ethan to any prospective home buyer.
Steve Gassaway
Ethan helped us find our new home after we had been searching for months on our own. He was always on time for appointments and looked up information on-the-spot when we had any questions. We recommend him without reservation to anyone looking to buy a house.
Patti Gassaway
The sale of my condo was seamless even in this market thanks to Ethan Shapiro. I met him on a cold call and I was not very polite because I get so many and I was not ready to sale yet. Little did I know that my plans would change so fast. Even in this difficult market Ethan got me a price above my expectations. He handled everything from hiring the workmen to get my vacant condo ready for sale to staging it with furniture when showings were slow because buyers could not imagine themselves living there. I'm a senior citizen without much experience in real estate and Ethan was more than a Realtor to me, he became a friend who was a listening ear who calmed my fears about such things as to what I would do with the proceeds from the sale. He advised me on how to safely invest in a way that was comfortable for me. He even accompanied to my bank and explained how each investment product would work for me in a way that I could understand. My experience working with Ethan was a joy and I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling property.
Kim Cohen
Ethan was an incredible agent. He helped me secure an offer well over asking in less than a day after listing. And was there every step of a challenging search for a new home. Would definitely recommend working with him - and so appreciate his commitment to climate causes.
Gregory Miller
Ethan Shapiro listens to his clients, is truly responsive, and cares about the Boulder community. Great experience! (Plus, he donates part of his proceeds to organizations addressing climate change🌎)
Camille Pollen
Ethan was very helpful in finding my next home. Originally planned to buy in Boulder, but life had other plans for me, yet Ethan still helped me by driving 30-45 min out of the way (twice) to look at properties outside of Boulder, even though his expertise is more in Boulder. He responds to any questions I had almost immediately and really helps walk you through the whole complicated process that is buying property.
Hannah Waters
As a first time home buyer, Ethan was extremely helpful and thorough throughout the process. He kept me well informed and was very responsive. He has great knowledge on Boulder Reality, buying and selling. He has a great attitude and its clear he likes working with people and assisting them find their dream home. even better, part of the earnings go to a charity of your choosing for climate change. I highly recommend working with Ethan for all your real estate needs.
Ally Esquibel
My wife and I were new to NH and reached out to Climate Change Realty to help us find a local agent. After listening to our interests and concerns, Ethan was able to connect us to a local agent who was very knowledgeable about every neighborhood in the area. This local agent helped us target specific neighborhoods that met our desires and even helped us see our house the minute it hit the market. The whole experience was great and we got exactly the house we were hoping for. BONUS: a large portion of the realtor fees were donated to helping the environment!
Jared Belinsky
Ethan is a wonderful person to work with - his passion both for his clients and for the climate has come through in every interaction I’ve had with him through my work at Citizens’ Climate Education. Ethan, and by extension his clients, have made several donations to support the work of Citizens’ Climate Education. This support has helped to build a national network of citizens trained to engage with their government to advance effective climate solutions on both sides of the aisle. Thank you Climate Change Realty for your hard work and generosity!
Christopher Anderson
Ethan connected my wife and I with a realtor in our area who worked tirelessly to get us the right place for our needs!
Kurt Einholz
Moving is a stressful time, yet working with Ethan Shapiro, realtor at Climate Change Realty, made every step of the way easier. He has been so incredibly professional, competent and downright likable. I am forever grateful for that day he appeared at our door to tell us of his climate realty business. I didn't realize at that time that we would be moving in the not so far future. The impression that not only he as a person made, but also his realty business with its goal of contributing to climate change solutions, was what prompted me to engage Ethan as our realtor. It was so refreshing to meet someone like Ethan with such a strong work ethic and passion to do good. Make your move contribute to our planet's health.
Carla Landenburger
Our experience with Ethan was 100% positive. He kept us informed with daily updates (emailed at 5:30 AM), addressed issues immediately as they arose, as always considered our priorities when doing so. He is hard-working, bright, honest, and dedicated to making our planet a better place to live. We put our faith in him to sell our condo and are delighted with that decision.
John Bergman
If you value great communication, above-and-beyond dedication and resourcefulness, then Ethan Shapiro is your guy! Ethan sold my run-down rental house and enthusiastically overcame all the obstacles this Covid year sent our way. Due to Ethan’s frequent updates, I always knew where we were in the process and felt totally supported. Ethan worked consistently hard throughout the transaction, from open houses, contacting local realtors and going door-to-door to alert neighbors of the sale to dealing with deceptive buyers and negotiating the details of the contract. Ethan Shapiro is a truly good person, and I am proud and delighted to have him represent me. I look forward to working with Ethan Shapiro and Climate Change Realty again in the future.
Anne Tobin
Ethan was a stellar realtor to work with - fun, professional, and 100% willing to do whatever it took to help us land the house of our dreams. At one point, he even tried to forego his fees to make our offer more competitive (thank goodness, it didn't come to that!) - I mean, have you even heard of that before? It was totally above and beyond anything we could have hoped for.
Kika Tuff
Ethan listened to our wish list, areas of homes we were interested, and he put us in touch with a real estate agent who was knowledgeable of our interests. We were able to find our forever home and we are extremely happy that we were listen to!
Karla Belinsky
Ethan Shapiro helped us close on our first home. The market has been absolutely crazy since covid started and Ethan worked his butt off to make sure we found a home and at a good price, something that has been very hard to achieve in this market. Would recommend to anyone looking to buy a home. Working with someone who actually cares about helping the world is always refreshing as well.
Izzy Becker
Buying my first home with Climate Change Realty was a great decision! Ethan is the most attentive and persistent real estate agent you'll ever met. Buying our home in one of the worst markets was not an easy task and Ethan made it happen! Highly recommend to anyone. And he actually does donate 50% of his profits to organizations who are fighting climate change! Let's all help make the world a better place.
