Christina Janis has joined the team of Epic Realty, the brokerage that represents Rob Rice Homes in four of the nine communities where Rob is currently building. For nearly 27 years, Epic Realty has specialized in marketing Washington new home construction.
“Christina is a valuable addition, passionate about serving our homebuyers and making it easier for their brokers to advise them through the process,” says Helena Rice, co-owner of Epic Realty who noticed Christina’s professionalism during a transaction at the Rob Rice Community of Chestnut Village in Olympia, Washington. “She is gracious and well-respected among the real estate community here and has a keen sense of what buyers need.”
Before real estate, Christina worked for Providence St. Peter’s Hospital and owned her own fitness center franchise. But, she had always dreamed of being in real estate, something she identifies now as a calling. Christina started her real estate career at Keller Williams Realty South Sound, where she was a Realtor with the Red Door Group and developed her skills representing buyers.
“Though I am on the seller side now with Rob Rice Homes, I share this builder’s concern for superior customer care and a compassion for home buyers. I have learned how to listen to people. Don’t talk, don’t sell, just try to understand them. Knowing what they want helps alleviate their stress.”
Christina is currently on site at the Rob Rice Community of Evergreen Heights in Lacey, Washington where she says the easy access to I-5 as well as the luxury rambler and master-down floorplans make the homes highly desirable for military and military retirees, something Janis understands as a retired military spouse.
“The homes are amazing,” Janis remarks. “I know from being in the business here that Rob Rice has a reputation for class and quality. There is a reason he is considered the Best of South Sound. I cannot imagine representing any other builder and it is the biggest reason I accepted the position.”
Christina has lived in Thurston County for more than 30 years and is a graduate of North Thurston High School. She has three grown daughters and her eldest was born in Germany, one of the many places the family lived while her husband was active duty military.
Janis is a member of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), the Lacey South Sound Chamber, Thurston County Realtors Association, Multiple Listing Service Association. She volunteers for Homes First! Affordable Rental Housing and the Salvation Army Community Soup Kitchen.
She is an avid runner and is part of various local running clubs. She loves the outdoors and enjoys hiking and kayaking.
Christina welcomes visitors at Evergreen Heights Friday through Monday 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm. She is available throughout the week by email at Christina@RobRiceHomes.com or by calling (360) 888-2295.
