Best quotes from her story: “My exposure to the real estate world was a journey in itself. My parents enjoyed going on ‘house hunting expeditions.’ As a family we toured open houses and loved visiting model homes in newly developed communities. We loved seeing the latest trends in house staging and dreaming of the day we too could purchase a brand new home.”
“I come from a genuine and authentic position where contribution is core. I have enjoyed interviewing local business owners and supporting their businesses. My heart is full when I am helping my fellow neighbors and family.”
Jane’s business philosophy: “It’s been four years since I got my real estate license and I’ve cherished every minute! My main goal when talking to prospective clients is to educate them so they are prepared for the many decisions that lay ahead of them. I look at buying and selling from a holistic perspective, so I paint the picture for them as clearly as I am able.”
“If I could offer some advice to fellow agents and new ones in particular, it would be to get involved in your community in a meaningful way. For example, you can contribute to the local events in your area by hosting a booth at a local festival so you are in the
mix and visibly working to make your community better. An important part of what I do daily is to nurture relationships. Community is built on the backbone of service and this will ultimately lead to referrals that can come quite unexpectedly when you are part of the fabric of the community.”
“Jane was fantastic! Jane took the time to help us understand the process from start to finish. She helped us prioritize and organize our wants versus our needs and took the time to really get to know us and what we wanted in a home. I would recommend Jane a thousand times over, especially if you’re a first time homebuyer like we were.” ~ Olaf L
“Jane is amazing! We were first time home buyers with no idea how to even start. She walked us through every single step and put us in touch with great people who helped us out along the way too. She always kept in contact with what to do next plus how to do things and never hesitated to help us out. It was incredible how easy and smoothly
the process was. She has all the patience in the world to answer any and all questions you may have; even if you want to tour a dozen locations. She truly wants the best for her clients and will do everything in her power to help you find your perfect home that
fits all of your wants and needs. We felt super lucky we were able to work with her. We couldn’t be any happier 🙂!”
“After having a bad experience with a few other Realtors, Jane was sent our way! Buying your first house can be a very stressful/difficult journey but with Jane it was none of that. There are nothing but good things to say about her. What made Jane stand out was not only her outstanding personality, but the ability to educate my husband and I with knowledge about buying a home, step by step. She works very professionally and is available to you through the whole journey! We toured so many houses, often several times in one day and not once did Jane get frustrated or force us into something my husband and I weren’t happy with. After touring many many houses we finally found one to call our own. I definitely have to say if it wasn’t for the patience and professionalism from Jane this couldn’t have happened. We are now happily settled into our home that was purchased and will most definitely go with Jane when ready to purchase another home.”
