With nearly 30 years of residential real estate experience, Jan Hazlett is consistently one of the top performing brokers on the North Shore. Awarded for the highest levels of client satisfaction, she has developed a large and devoted following of repeat clients, both sellers and buyers.
Jan is known for achieving successful outcomes through her extensive market knowledge, keen eye for design, attention to detail, strong negotiating skills and pleasant personal manner. She has also established and leads Hazlett Realty Partners, a dedicated team of @properties licensed real estate professionals to support her goal of providing unparalleled client service.
For sellers, Jan and her team work collaboratively to put together an individualized, comprehensive sales plan. This includes establishing an effective pricing strategy, using her professional interior design background to stage the home for maximum impact, executing an impactful marketing plan (including traditional, online and social media) and reaching out to her extensive network of local contacts to help ensure a successful sale.
For buyers, Jan takes the time up front to listen and understand specific needs, desires and buying power. She then puts together and presents an extensive array of local market information and appropriate properties to visit. Jan provides knowledgeable advice and counsel every step of the way through to closing. And she makes it a point to keep all her clients regularly informed with up-to-the-minute information.
As a North Shore resident for more than 35 years, Jan has an in-depth knowledge of the geography, school systems, local businesses and institutions as well as a list of excellent contractors, service providers and mortgage lenders.
Originally from Indianapolis, Jan came to Chicago to complete her degree in interior design and commenced her career with a commercial design firm in the city. Following her marriage and a two-year relocation to Cincinnati, she and her husband, Tom, returned to the area and settled in Evanston where they raised their three children. Always a high-energy "doer," Jan's love of the area led to an active and ongoing involvement with civic affairs and non-profit work in the community. Early on she was recruited to "give real estate a try." She has never looked back.
