The Story
Homebuilder Randy Sebastian in Lake Oswego OR - Renaissance Homes

It takes dedication and passion to make a
great home builder.

Our President, Randy Sebastian, has deep roots in the Portland area and is passionate about our great city.  He grew up in Oregon City and attended Portland State University. He began building homes in SE Portland in 1984 at the age of twenty. The following year, he founded Renaissance Homes.  Since then, he has continually refined and improved the home building process. His work continues to reflect his enthusiasm and excitement, thus creating one of the most acclaimed local home builders in the Portland area.

Randy has a passion for what's right in a home.

With his artistic eye, combined with an acute understanding of the wants and needs of homebuyers, Randy has set a course for the company to construct every home to the highest standards.  Renaissance utilizes our Living Green building process encompassing energy efficient technologies and innovative green products. At Renaissance, we believe we are helping to save our planet one Renaissance Home at a time.

Innovation is at the heart of every home built by Renaissance. Our creative team pushes the envelope on home design, construction techniques, amenities, style and new products. We lead, others follow.

Renaissance home buyers are the obvious reason for our success. 

We work hard to offer better designs in premium locations and to make building your new home an exciting, enjoyable experience. Teamwork often goes unspoken.  Not at Renaissance.  We work hard at it each and every day.  Every home, right down to the last detail, is built with sincere care.

Renaissance homes [have] a more contemporary and classic look that will age well.
The quality is great, and we really like the design of our Renaissance Home. Some other builder’s homes have a noticeable look. In a few years, you will be able to tell exactly when they were built. Renaissance Homes has a more contemporary and classic look that will age well. The design of the home is nice, and the inside is gorgeous.
Our friends comment on how well-designed the layout is and how easy it is to move from room to room.
We fell in love with our Renaissance home the first time we walked into it, and are still delighted a year later. Even our friends comment on how well-designed the layout is and how easy it is to move from room to room. I never thought about after-the-sale service for a house, but the Quality Assurance team at Renaissance takes its name very seriously. We couldn’t be happier with this house.
