Abstract: “Green” marketing is everywhere, and the real estate sector is no exception. But of course, like many of these transformations in the language of the marketplace, caveat emptor is often the rule.

In anticipation of a more detailed review of this area in an upcoming issue of Real Estate Issues, we asked a number of thoughtful experts in the field to weigh in and get the conversation started.
