Marty Pistone, Owner

Marty’s talent for collaboration, creating community, and grasping “the big picture” has naturally drawn him to join the team at Clear Blue Commercial. After working for several years as VP of Business Development at Z-Concepts, an innovative design and construction firm, we at Clear Blue Commercial feel very fortunate that he has brought his years of expertise and out-of-the-box thinking to our mission-driven company.

Marty received an MFA from The American Conservatory Theatre and has an enviable list of faculty credits, professional associations, and large-scale projects.

Despite his impressive accomplishments and diverse palette of skills, Marty freely admits that his extensive and loving circle of family and friends is his greatest achievement, including his lucky and adoring wife who also writes his bios.

Janie Glidden

Clear Blue Commercial is thrilled to welcome Janie and her impressive background and expertise in the Real Estate markets – along with her background in construction, energy & sustainability. She has been a past Director for sustainable programs, non-profit advocacy, and is a Certified Green Building Professional. Through her years as a licensed CA Real Estate Agent, she has closely worked with Builders, Architects, Engineers, and Field Teams. Her gift for facilitation is a huge asset to our team– especially for Clients.

Personally, Janie is an ‘action-oriented’, ‘service-minded’ individual who relishes the fresh air of the outdoors…especially while getting great exercise! Her vision is to share success at the ‘long-game’ – success for individuals, their endeavors & projects, good health, and our global environment (…including the non-Real Estate aspects, such as the Ocean!). Her motto is to ‘Always leave things better than you found them’…!
