The Developers

Dave & Teresa Sjule

David and Teresa Sjule started building not long after they got married 40 years ago. They have built hundreds of dwellings including award winning communities, cutting edge condominiums, spec and custom homes. 

Their passion is setting the standard and creating communities that enhance people's lives with a great place to live. Driven by their unique vision, you will find each of their developments boasting fantastic floor plans, unparalleled curb appeal and spectacular landscaping. The "feeling" that they create in their homes set's them apart. 

The Sjule's have lived in the Yakima Valley for 23 years. When not dreaming about "the next project", Dave and Teresa devote most of their time to building their private park (a.k.a. their backyard).  They have turned their property into a pristine respite with ponds, waterfalls and "a killer barn". The Sjule's have planted 600 trees, 400 arborvitaes, 150 grasses, and 40 rose bushes creating a natural habitat for the birds and wildlife. Dave logs approximately 40 miles a month on his riding lawn mower...all in his own backyard! Each month there is a new project, or "vision" for turning the property into a resort for family and friends to enjoy. 

When not working in the yard, you may find them serving at Together Church or chasing after the grand kids. 

Dave's sense of adventure and Teresa's willingness to "go for a ride" has allowed the Sjule's to live a unique and blessed life.
