“As they say real estate is all about location, location, location. I focus on the Union County area, and know it like the back of my hand and I can serve my clients best. I believe it is important as a Realtor to have a pulse on the area that I’m helping my clients in. From one area to the next value’s change dramatically, changing school districts, flood zones, zoning, etc.
I assess my clients needs and help them choose their ideal neighborhood. Once they choose the area they want to live in then it’s just a matter of time before we find their dream home.”
Janice keeps busy with her husband and three young children who are active in community activities. They are parishioners at St. Helen’s Roman Catholic Church.
Janice was tremendously helpful in our home search. Being first time home buyers we thought we wanted a move in ready home. Janice was patient and understanding of our wishes and showed us numerous properties fitting our criteria. After weeks of not finding anything that we loved, Janice encouraged us to look at a house that needed some cosmetic work. We were hesitant at first but agreed to take a look. Well we LOVED the house! It had everything we wanted! It was technically move in ready but definitely needed updating. Janice was knowledgeable in providing us with ideas for the updates we desired. We did run into an issue during our title search but Janice promptly helped us take care of the situation with the Seller and helped us close on time. It was a pleasure working with Janice and I highly recommend using her! – Jennifer and Dante Rastelli
