Janet is very professional, responsive, genuine, engaging and made excellent use of the Sotheby’s resources. She was a guiding light throughout the buying process!! She is terrific.Susan Stone
Janet knows the market and is an experienced, trusted professional, offering great advice and quick to respond in a competitive market. In addition, she knows how to draw upon and leverage the many resources offers by Sotheby’s. It is a pleasure to work with her.Susan Stone
Janet went above and beyond in all respects. We found her to extremely knowledgeable with respect to the current real estate market and accurate in predicting what the highest bid would be. In an overheated and competitive market, it is crucial to have someone representing you who is both honest and experienced. Even after we had secured our new home, Janet (and Rita) continued to go out of their way to make us feel welcome in our new neighborhood.Ralph Vartolo
Janet was amazing to work with. She definitely made this whole experience worth it. She was always on top of everything and reached through the entire process making sure I was up to date with what was transpiring.Sheila Pizarro
House hunting during Covid-times in the most fiercely competitive market in memory with an active 2-year-old in hand is not exactly a scenario built for making friends. But, that’s exactly what Janet Jorgensen has become. And a dear one at that. She was at times a babysitter, therapist and, most importantly, a trusted adviser who helped us navigate an incredibly challenging search. In the end, we not only ended up with a beautiful home we love, but also a new favorite playmate for our daughter, counselor for my wife and I and a wonderful new friend who is destined to be a frequent guest in the home she secured for us. Janet’s expertise, patience, calm and cool head and deep care for her clients is unrivaled in my experience with brokers. We are so very grateful to have found her.Matt & Michelle
I received tremendous attention and service from my broker, Janet Jorgensen.Matthew Trainor
We used Janet to purchase out home in Weston, CT. Janet was amazing from start to close. She is extremely hard working and knowledgeable about the real estate market. We couldn't be more appreciative that Janet found us our dream home. Janet made the process much easier than we had been anticipating. She was patient, cooperative, warm and welcoming during the entire house hunting process. Any questions we had were answered quickly and efficiently. I recommend Janet to anyone who is planning on selling or purchasing a home. We thank you for the time and effort you spent with us, making our experience as easy as it was!Mark and Vlora Bleier
My wife and I were extremely impressed with Janet's professionalism and attention. We always felt that we had Janet's full attention. Based upon the responsiveness and assistance we felt like we were Janet's only client.Dennis Farrell
Janet, was amazing.. her knowledge and personality got out family through a very stressful process.Brian Quigley
Janet represented us as buyers as we were making the move from NYC to Stamford, and we couldn't have had a better experience. We were very specific in the type of house we wanted to buy, and Janet only found us excellent listings that met our criteria. We quickly found a house we wanted, and Janet expertly helped us navigate the negotiations and inspections (crucial as we had never owned a single-family home before). We were selling and buying simultaneously which can be a bit tricky, but much of our stress was alleviated by having such an excellent agent!Jason and Versha, M-S
It has consistently been a very professional experience and a pleasure to work with Janet. She has helped us sell and buy numerous homes. She listed our home on Shippan Point and it sold with a very successful outcome. She then helped us to buy and later sell our beautiful home in North Stamford at the Ponds on Riverbank Road. Mostly recently, Janet has helped us downsize and resettle into a unique property in New Canaan. Janet has brought a wealth of knowledge, marketing resources and financial expertise to each transaction... and above all Janet took great care in understanding our needs throughout the process, developed a sense of trust and brought about an honorable execution to the selling/buying process. I look forward to working with her again... and highly recommend her to others.Sue S.
