About me

As a personable, enthusiastic, and honest person, I will take pride in catering to individual real estate preferences.  Having been successful in the financial industry, I have developed expertise in executing trades, communicating between buyers and sellers, and negotiating prices.  I have integrated  these skills in my own real estate endeavors.

After a 25-year career as an institutional bond salesperson in the credit markets, including years at DLJ, UBS, and the Seaport Group, I have decided to bring my  talents closer to home. 

As a long-time resident of Northern Westchester, I am deeply passionate about the local living styles in the town of Pound Ridge and neighboring areas.  As a mother, i have been actively involved with the community.  Whether it be estimating the commute to New York, or finding a horse show or swim meet, I  can give you direction.

Professional Associations & Designations

I am a member of the National Association of Realtors, the New York State Association of Realtors, the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, and the Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service.

I was moving back to the east coast from Denver CO and needed help finding a home to rent for my family. We didn't have the luxury of time and relied heavily upon Janet to locate the ideal home. Janet went above and beyond the call of duty-she found us listings, traveled to the locations and  facetimed with us to show us the properties. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, schools, and the homes' features and commute times to work (yes, she even 'mapped' out the route during regular commuting times). Janet is an amazing realtor and I hope to work with her again!  CK

Client from Denver

We searched for a home for about a year and a half with Janet and during that time, she literally became a part of our family. She held our baby while we looked at the attic of one house and entertained our 4 year old while we checked out the kitchen of another. She was patient with us, incredibly  knowledgable of the Northern Westchester area, and willing to advocate for her buyers. Janet made it easy to see houses and see them again if we needed to. The whole time she worked with us, she had a smile on her face and truly made what could have been a very stressful time, a pleasure. Janet knew what it might feel like to search for a house with two small children in tow. She embodies Northern Westchester and knows what it has to offer to a family. Being a mom of children who have used the schools, gone to the pools, and danced at the local studios, she is someone I am happy to have met and consider a new neighborhood friend -JD
