Another View Home Sold in Washougal, WA with Nature As Neighbors

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

We are thrilled for the buyers of this lovely home with stunning views of the Columbia River.  We took time to familiarize them with communities in Clark County for several months, and when they pinpointed Washougal, the search was on to find them the right place. Several other homes popped up as possibilities before this one, but something always got in the way. Funny how that works. We kept reassuring them that the right home would become available in due time.


And, it did. As per the norm with most of our transactions, the sellers and the buyers hit it off immediately when they met to discuss the nuances of the home. We could tell they both enjoyed one another's company, and in fact, they ended up having dinner together! Fortunately, the seller's agent was also comfortable with their instant friendship. We know it goes against what we are logically taught to try and avoid - too much interaction between the parties, at least until after closing . It's one of those, "you had to be there," situations. 


The 3,000 SQ FT Custom Home is perfect for the buyers' lifestyle. They both appreciate views - and need room for visiting family, including a granddaughter. They wanted to make sure there was the right space for inside and outside play when she visits from Portland. Since Mrs. Buyer loves to cook, a well-appointed and spacious kitchen fit her wish list. The home is also light and bright, an important consideration since this couple hails from Colorado, where the sun shines more than it does in the Pacific Northwest - especially during the winter months. 



It's a great time to buy, or sell, a home in Washougal, or any of the other desirable communities in Clark County WA. We specialize in homes on acreage with soothing views. Homes where you thrive, with plenty of elbow room for the soul, and nature as neighbors™. Call us today to learn more.

What fun, Debb! Not only is this story unusual because the buyers and sellers hit it off so well, but it makes you wonder why more buyers do not. Turning over a precious commodity like a home should attract like people, but so many times it does not.

My husband is still ticked off that the sellers of our house in Sacramento had nothing in common with us on top of the fact they were FRYING BACON like some lowlife, ha, ha, ha.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - What a lovely view to wake up to every morning!  I can certainly understand why your buyers are excited to own this home. The icing on the cake is that they hit it off with the sellers. Congrats to all of you!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - The bottom line is it is all about servicing the client's needs and you and the other agent did it so well.

The courtesy photo with the view as very beautiful! I'm glad you pointed out the Columbia River. Because I have never been to the State of Washington, I would have assumed it was the ocean. What a lovely view. One in which I don't think I could ever tire of. 

It's nice that you included the second photo too. That one gives me a sense of how close the homeowners can get to being one with nature! That's exactly how I would love to live, if at all possible. I can completely understand why both Seller and Buyer were attracted to this beautiful home and the location is perfect too.

Well done!

Congratulations Debb and Bernie! The seller and your clients hitting it off and becoming friends so quickly is more proof it was meant to be. You played matchmaker and as you always do, found the perfect fit. Such a beautiful view, I'm sure your clients are happy the other homes didn't work out.
