Being a real estate broker is the ultimate expression of my lifelong passion for guiding, helping others and an eye for home design. Born and raised in Chicagoland, my professional life has been shaped by my education/work in psychology, healthcare operations management, sales, business development and culinary arts. Over the past 22 years as a resident of Highland Park, aside from my greatest joy, raising my 2 children(still raising them!), I have owned 3 homes locally (2 remodeled and one custom built), developed and ran a successful orthodontic practice, and created a business as a personal chef for health and wellness working in the homes of clients all over Chicago's North Shore. Recent professional/personal growth training has emphasized the power of practicing balance in life to generate the creativity and energy necessary to exceed my clients' expectations. For me, balance is derived from making music (playing viola for over 40 years), traveling, cooking and eating fabulous food, doing yoga, and playing the great game of tennis.
When you entrust me to be your partner in your real estate endeavors, whether it be buying or selling property, I will serve you with a unique combination of experiences and knowledge of life transitions, the psychology and logistics of moving, home construction/design/remodeling, contractor relations, working with legal professionals, and the art of negotiation. All of these of course accompanied with patience and compassion. It is my goal to deliver 5-star service, leaving you eager to call on me again or recommend me to your family and friends.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

"Wow! Such a brilliant Realtor! My sister and I were looking for the right small home for her retirement. We needed a realtor who could work well both remotely and in person. On FB I learned a high school classmate was now a Broker and decided to try her out! What a great experience we had. Janet is not only very knowledgeable, she is articulate and heard everything we both were saying (Sister’s to the end, two different points of view ) and juggled our desires until we found our 5 finalists. She provided us with the proper tools to do this search together, FaceTiming homes for me while they walked through. Ultimately my sister purchased a well kept and well priced home, in her range. Coincidently, it was one Janet happened upon and recommended we watch as it’s sale was pending. Sure enough, it came back up!
This was by far the best real estate experience of my life, Janet is a jewel !!!! She is our “forever realtor”."
