Jane has lived with her family in Litchfield, CT, since 1982. In those 40 years, she has come to know the NW CT region with all its stunning beauty, charm, and character. This corner of the world beckoned after a successful career in merchandising for R.H. Macy in New York. Merchandising and staging retail products were an integral part of her responsibility. Jane and her husband Paul, who is an architect, have lovingly restored their 18th c. home. Jane has been a real estate salesperson for over 15 years and joined forces with Sotheby’s in 2018.

As a full-time agent, putting together the necessary information for selling and buying a home is tantamount to a successful sale. Jane works well with her colleagues and the Sotheby world-class team that assists her in delivering a successful transaction. It is with that passion obtained from her merchandising career that she is able to assist her sellers in preparing their homes for the market with the appropriate staging and marketing strategies. She is able to guide her Buyers to focus on the right property, and, if needed, help them prioritize potential projects and offer design ideas. Jane believes in service to her clients before, during, and after the transaction. She prides herself in being able to listen to her clients while remaining calm and patient throughout the process. Doing the common things uncommonly well is her mantra.

Giving back to the community is important. Over her 40 years in the community, Jane has served on many area non-profit boards.

She currently serves as Vice Chairman for the Northwest Community Bank and is a founding member of the Northwest Community Foundation; Inc. She has served as past President of the Litchfield Historical Society and the Litchfield Garden Club.

If you are looking to buy or sell a home in NW CT, and need a dedicated and diligent agent, Jane would be happy to assist you.

Testimonials

Jane is professional, very competent, pays attention to detail, keeps good current notes and shares relevant information with her clients. I had complete confidence in Jane throughout the selling process. She worked hard to keep both buyer and seller focused on our common goal - and encouraged compromise and good will among the parties. I am a widow in my 80's and this is the first time I have handled a transaction of this magnitude without my husband. I will always be very grateful to Jane for her patience and guidance. Sharlene Copeland, Litchfield

Dirk & Hilary Barhydt

Working with Jane Hinkle and the agency made the process easier and smooth. The professionalism and experience showed in the staging ideas, having a fantastic photo shoot, getting and keeping the house ready for buyers to really see the value of the house. This also gave us the opportunity for getting the best price, which we did. Thanks Jane and the entire staff!

Richard & Nina Tourtellotte

Jane was both an absolute pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job.

James & Alessandra Harrod

Jane did a very fine job selling my house and finding me a new home. It was a wild and crazy two months but everything worked out very well in the end. She was able to read me well and calm me down when needed and kept encouraging me through this whole process. I did it as a widow and she was my best cheerleader. Many thanks!

Vijay & Dilshaad Vad

I would highly recommend Jane Hinkel to my friends/family. Not knowing much about the area she was extremely knowledgeable and had a calming nature to her. This helped the process of the purchase In Every step of the way. I always felt she had my back, almost as if she was a lifelong friend that I could trust. Even after my purchase & move she followed up with me to see if there was anything u needed. Who does that these days? Seriously. I was so, so lucky to get her. Thank you for her & my beautiful home!
