Janis is amazing she gives her honest when asked for it and she always looks out for the best interest of her clients Nicholas Cerra
Professionals. Absolute professionals in real estate. Robert E. Mallozzi, III
We are very thankful to have had Janis Hennessy as our real estate broker. Janis possesses all of the traits that one needs in a successful real estate broker. She is intelligent, savvy and...very friendly. We will highly recommend Janis to everyone that we know. Daniel J. & Stephanie B. Radman
Janis did an oustanding job for us from start to finish. Schuyler & Lorinda Proctor
Janis was such a wonderful person to work with throughout this process. She has the low key style of a real pro. First she found us a Covid retreat on 2 days notice, then recommended a fantastic broker for a search outside of her territory, and when we came back to search in her area, she was always patient when we didn't know what we wanted or didn't respond to emails. But she listened carefully to what we said and so knew what we wanted. and when the right house came on the market she was there with spot on advice about the market and pricing. Never pushy or impatient, always eager to help and share her knowledge. Very honest and realistic in her suggestions and assessment of various aspects of the property/purchase. We couldn't recommend her more! She's the best. Leonard Porter
Thank you for being such an incredible partner and counselor throughout this crazy process. You are the best! We appreciate your smarts, savvy, and everything you did on our behalf. 
This testimonial is for Martha Perry and Janis Hennessy. We had the best experience selling our house with Martha and Janis. They appreciate that selling the family home can be an emotional experience and held our hands throughout the whole process. But they also understand the business inside and out and use their many years of experience in the New Canaan market to make sure we got the best price for our home. Martha and Janis are thorough, thoughtful, creative and professional. We couldn’t have asked for a better team. Michelle Ernst, Homeowner
Janis was a great help in getting all of our questions answered and made the purchase of our new home smooth and easy. Claude & Laura Chandonnet
Thanks so much for all your efforts and time in selling the house. I will be sure to recommend you to friends in the area who might be looking to sell or relocate. You are very good at your job and we truly appreciate all you did. Please let us know if you are ever out this way! Best, Ryan
Janis Hennessy is an outstanding real estate broker! Janis's guidance on the sale of my home and her endless pursuit to find my new home clearly demonstrate her knowledge of the market and willingness to go above and beyond in exceeding my expectations. Based on my experience, I highly recommend Janis and will work with her for all of my future real estate needs. All the best! Judy
When Josie and I decided to sell our home last February, we asked Janis H to be our realtor. While we could have chosen others, we selected Janis because of her calm demeanor, even under duress, her rock solid reliability, honest feedback and in depth knowledge of the New Canaan real estate market. We were not disappointed as we experienced all of these exceptional qualities throughout the selling process. We highly recommend her to anyone desirous of selling or buying a home in New Canaan. Josie and Ralph
