Real Estate was a natural transition for Steve and Wende. They both believe that life is about people and each person you meet becomes part of a community and, sometimes, an extended family.
Steve’s father taught him at the very young age of 20, when he earned his real estate license, that real estate was about people and families. The home they purchase is a byproduct of the transaction. Houses come and go but people will remain in your life forever. Steve and Wende have lived by this over 15 years. It is amazing for to see the long-term extended family and friendships they have established.
Steve and Wende married in early 2000 and are raising the next generation of Valentine realtors, Christian and Chase. Steve obtained his real estate license in 1999 and Wende in 2000. They have worked together as a team ever since, just as his parents have for over 35 years. The one question they are asked most is, “How do you work and live together, and stay married?” The Valentines learned early on in their marriage, especially when they had kids, that it was going to take team work to run a real estate business and raise their boys. They take this approach with their clients as well.
“To give those we represent the best service, we accomplish more as a team than as individuals. You may not have kids or a spouse yet… but you already have, just like us, close family and an extended family of friends and people you spend most of your time with. As people, we always strive to give friends and family solid advice based on our past experiences. We believe your real estate experience with us will be one you will share with your friends and your family because we know your family and your dreams have to come first. We truly believe in our motto: ‘You, Your Family, Your Dreams! Our Commitment!’”
