Growing up working in the fields of Eastern Washington, like JW Clise, Ed Luera learned the values of hard work, responsibility and perseverance early on. Ed left his home to attend Harvard, where he earned his A.B. Degree in Economics, with Honors. After Harvard, Ed attended Columbia University’s Graduate School of International and Public Affairs, graduating first in his class. Ed then began his real estate career developing inner city industrial parks for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. After seven years in Manhattan, Ed returned to the beautiful Northwest to continue his real estate career and raise his family. Ed is passionate about his tenants and considers them to be the key component of the Clise family legacy. When Ed isn’t taking care of his tenants, he is coaching youth track and football, mentoring at-risk youth and painting floral watercolors.
