Debb Janes and Bernie Stea have been a real estate team for over a decade in Clark County, WA, where they specialize in ViewHomes™, family estates, multi-generational living, and homes with large lots or acreage.
ViewHomes™ grew out of their passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years they have gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. They now enjoy their lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where they appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport. Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.
Debb and Bernie want to provide you with similar opportunities – spacious views, quiet environments, and enough open space that your neighbors aren’t encroaching on your privacy. They work with clients who have discovered that privacy is the ultimate luxury. Many of their clients are going through the transition to multi-generational housing – providing room for elder parents, or adult children with their own families. Debb and Bernie also have the personal experience of multi-generational housing with Debb’s parents, so they know the challenges and extreme peace of mind and satisfaction that can bring to a family.
Debb comes from a background of communications and marketing – she is a former radio personality and newsperson with local Portland, OR radio stations. Her passion for real estate started with her regular live broadcasts from the annual Street of Dreams, and her talent and expertise in creating warm, soulful environments at home.
Bernie is a lawyer with a background in high-tech and start-ups, licensed as a realtor in Washington and Oregon. His passion for real estate started when he became an investor/developer many years ago in Clark County.
