'Tesla Tuesdays' aim to help Hasson move Portland's cribs

Tesla Mania has arrived within the high-end real estate world. The Hasson firm is offering Tesla Tuesdays, in which local brokers are using the tony EVs to cart would-be buyers around to new homes on the market.

Hasson's agents are using Tesla's Model S as they transport their clients to available homes. The service continues through Sept. 24.

Here's the company's description of Tesla Tuesday:

"Given Hasson's long history of service in the Pacific Northwest, the company is committed to the environmental and economic health of the community. Hasson's Green Team has made a commitment to their environmentally-conscious clientele by gaining extensive knowledge and education about sustainable living and green building. Tesla's Model S electric sedan offers Hasson agents style and sustainability in a car, a true extension of their office."

Tesla has become an "it" EV company, with its colorful leader Elon Musk hitting the Web to push everything from his "hyperloop" train-like system between San Francisco and Los Angeles as well as, not surprisingly, a rocket engine.
