Guest on Modern Ways: Eco-Friendly Homes with Madison

Guest on Modern Ways: Eco-Friendly HomesMeet Madison Hopkins – host of Modern Ways: Eco-Friendly Homes Podcast, real estate agent with Moving with Madison in the Denver area and a go-getter.

I “met” Madison in a book – Climate Action Challenge, by Joan Gregerson. Joan was describing some of the initiatives taken by people embarking on a Climate Action Challenge. She told the story of Madison, a newly licensed real estate agent, attending the Action Plan Retreat. Through Madison’s work at the retreat, she decided to become an eco-focused real estate agent, helping people find the greenest option possible. Just 5 weeks later, Madison launched her podcast. After reading this, I knew I had to meet Madison!

With the name of her podcast, I found her on Instagram, @EcoHomes, and we started an online conversation which grew to a video chat. I was so excited when she invited me to be on her podcast.

Listen in to the conversation I had with Madison Hopkins on her podcast Modern Ways: Eco-Friendly Homes Podcast. You can find Modern Ways: Eco-Friendly Homes on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or online.

Here are Madison’s show notes for the episode. Thanks again Madison!
