View Homes of Clark County, WA and Earth Day 2017

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

It's Earth Day, and we're reminded of our continued commitment to live in harmony with nature and all of its magnificent creatures. In fact, our real estate focus, ViewHomes of Clark County with Nature As Neighbors™grew out of our passion for the environment. We believe beautiful and peaceful surroundings help to ground and center us. 

A ViewHome™ doesn't necessarily have a specific view,  instead it's a home with a bit of breathing room and scenes that relax us, rather than add to our stress. It's subjective. Perhaps it's views of a mountain, or a lake, or a river. Or, it could be pleasing scenes of a greenspace, a forest, or a grassy meadow. You get the idea.

We think the ultimate luxury is having a view of nature as your neighbor, plus "elbow room for the soul."™ Most of our clients share our philosophy and commitment to do what we can to protect our resources. They know it's what we do everyday that can have a big impact on our tomorrows. Conservation minded actions and thoughtful decisions go along way. For example, refusing to use toxic pesticides and instead committing to organic gardening. 

This morning, hummingbirds are crowding our feeders, the cherry tree is ready to burst into full bloom, and in the distance, we can hear water tumble over rocks in the Little Washougal River. It's another rainy day, we've had a lot of them this Spring, but our hearts are filled with gratitude. We are so lucky to live amid such natural beauty and wonder.  Happy Earth Day to you.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we 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”.

A viewhome is a word I have not heard but certainly agree that with you that it is what many people want. What a good topic for Earth Day.
