Janet Peckinpaugh uses her three decades of experience as an award winning TV reporter and news anchor to help her clients. After retiring from NBC-CT in 2007, she became a realtor with William Pitt/Sotheby's Essex office.

Her interest in real estate started early: Janet learned from her parents who invested in commercial and residential properties in Florida, Ohio and Indiana.

Janet is an active member of her community, serving as Chair of the Essex Economic Development Commission, on the Board of Governors at the Essex Yacht Club where she is the Chair of the Entertainment Committee. Janet has been seated on numerous charity boards throughout her many years in Connecticut. Giving back is part of her core belief. Janet donates a portion of each transaction to the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, www.holeinthewallgang.org. The organization is dedicated to providing a "different kind of healing" to seriously ill children and their families.

Great services

Elisa Padilla

I'd gotten to know Janet through my work, and when the time came to sell my parents' home, I didn't hesitate to contact her. With a dozen other homes for sale in the immediate area, I was worried about it sitting empty for a long time. However, Janet definitely knows the market - it sold in a few weeks, and she made the entire process go smoothly. Janet was always available to answer my questions, make suggestions and also listen to mine. Everyone who knew the house was for sale also knows that I worked with Janet, and would not hesitate to do so again. Many thanks, Janet!

Wendi Parson, Listing Client

Janet worked tirelessly from March to November when we finally found, with her knowledge of what we wanted,the right property. This was after finding something earlier, which we had offered slightly more than the asking price,which was accepted.One of the two owners then decided not to sell. I only relate this story to indicate Janet's persistence and determination in finding us a suitable property after such a disappointment to us all. Professional,knowledgable and very warm and pleasant to deal with, we could not recommend Janet Peckinpaugh more highly. Ralph Loffredo

Ralph Loffredo, Client

Janet is a remarkable real estate agent who is always there to help her clients in every aspect of purchasing a home. When my husband and I were ready to buy our home, we really had no idea who to call. Fortunately we met Janet at an Open House, and knew we had found a person we could easily work with and trust. We were not disappointed! Throughout the entire house buying process, she was a tremendous help. Thanks to Janet we are settling into our dream home today!

Amy - Gales Ferry

My husband Todd and I want to let you know that we are tremendously grateful to Janet Peckinpaugh for her efforts and success on our behalf when it came to purchasing properties in Connecticut. Janet was not the first agent we spoke with, but she was undoubtedly the perfect person for us. She is diligent, intelligent, knowledgable, responsible, determined, and also highly entertaining! As we were working on less-than-straightforward deals from the other side of the country, we threw an extra wrench or two into the property purchases. But, Janet kept us on track, reminding us what needed to be done every step of the way. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for properties in Connecticut. Thanks for the good experience.

Brooke Elmgren - Oakland, CA

At a time when homes in our market were unsold for long periods, Janet's expertise and instincts were instrumental in getting our home sold in just five weeks. Her advice on pricing (she recommended higher pricing, not lower pricing) was absolutely accurate, based on the final selling price. She handled the marketing process from photos to closing in a professional and efficient manner. Throughout the process, she was responsive and supportive. We couldn't be more pleased with our selection of her as our agent...we interviewed several others before selecting her. Janet is professional, personable, and attentive...and her work got us the results we wanted. She has certainly earned our enthusiastic endorsement.

Ed, Essex

The effort of Ms. Peckinpaugh that was exuded to obtain a buyer for the real estate listed above was admirable. Prior to her involvement, the firm that had the listing had not one showing to an interested buyer. Janet went out of her way to create interest in the property locally, as well as, regionally. In addition, she brought other ideas to me that I needed to be aware of and asked me about selling my permanent residence. Having been in sales myself, I know too well opportunities often missed and Janet didn’t miss much in her endeavors here.

Elizabeth Weber

I called Janet after seeing an article in the local paper about her joining a local real estate office in Essex. Having only lived in the area for 3 years, had few local connections, but wanted someone who was an insider” to help with the sale because the community is very tightly knit. Though she was not a seasoned veteran of the real estate business, she handled every aspect of our sale as if she’d been in the business her entire life. She assessed our house very reasonably, had the on line photos taken and a contract ready for our approval within days of our first meeting. She had great suggestions for things to improve the way the house showed and she even had a showing before the ink was dry on the listing contract. The second people to view the house made an offer, she handled the brief negotiation with aplomb, and we began the moving process days after our first meeting with her. Throughout the inspection, closing, move process Janet was a tremendous help providing local points of contact for various needs which arose. I am retired from the US Air Force and have moved many times, but this was definitely the easiest I’ve ever experienced. In addition to her skills and work ethic, her strong suit is the fantastic personality she exudes at all times. Because she is genuine, customers are immediately put at ease and immediate trust is obvious. Janet is now a friend and I would recommend her to anyone, particularly anyone looking to buy or sell in the Shoreline area of Ct.

Jeff Leeper

We cannot say enough about the service we received from Janet. This was not our first house purchase however, it was the smoothest transaction of all the homes we've purchased. Our calls or emails (and there were many) were never inconvenient for her. She always responded quickly, professionally and with such delightful enthusiasm. We would (and will) recommend her to anyone.

Linda - Essex

I'm writing to recommend Janet Peckinpaugh who was my real estate agent for a recent home purchase in Essex. Throughout the whole process Janet was informative and helpful with great attention to detail. She was always responsive returning calls and emails almost immediately. She was always available to show us the property and answer questions. One thing I really appreciated was that if she didn't know the answer to something she said so and got back to us immediately once she found it. I found Janet to be incredibly easy to deal with and would definitely use her again. I recommend her without hesitation.

Buyer

Janet is a true professional who cares about her clients and their homes whether buying or selling a house. She is always available to help with the simplest question or a complex problem with concise and accurate solutions. We listed and sold our house within 2 weeks with her help and guidance. She is fabulous!

If not for Janet's knowledge and exceptional customer service we would not have bought this home. Janet helped us look past the uncleanliness the selling agent showed the empty house in and enlighten us on its potential. Janet went above and beyond to research and find answers to our questions and concerns.

Tom McDowell & Samantha Libby-Capp

In less than six months, in a down market for our town, Janet Peckinpaugh produced not one, but three serious buyers for our property. She helped us address multiple contracts in an ethical manner, and guided us to a smooth closing. Throughout the process she was responsive, helpful, and gave every potential buyer the red carpet treatment.

Sharon and Eric Koch - E. Haddam

Janet's willingness to explore a home we saw with a lockbox even though we were not scheduled to see it supported me in finding the perfect home to rent. She readily called the agent, got permission to enter, and expedited my application in an attempt to have it reviewed with several other applicants. Thankfully everything worked out and a week later I was in my new home. Her skills were amazing on so many levels.
