Stefanie Bailey was born and raised in neighboring Grays Harbor County. She moved to the area during her college years to attend Saint Martin's University in Lacey, where she received her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Upon graduation she joined her family's general contracting business on the Washington Coast. During her time there she learned to wear many hats, so to speak. From accounting to estimating to helping a customer pick out kitchen cabinets, she enjoyed being involved in all aspects of the business. It was there she learned the importance of quality work, open communication with clients and reliable service. The value of a referral from a happy customer was never to be taken for granted.
Stefanie returned to Olympia with her husband to raise their two children. They saw great value in the school districts and ample opportunities for families to work and play in Thurston County. Stefanie's love of the area, her education and small business background aided in a natural transition to Real Estate. She felt right at home in the local family owned Van Dorm Realty and has thrived there ever since.
