I had a very positive experience working with Janet to buy my new home. She helped me navigate through a very difficult spring market, She listened to my needs and budget ,and in the end we found the right house. Janet is also very savvy and experienced in the business, and has amazing expertise when it comes to utilities in the basement, which was not my forte. Even after the closing, she has continued to be help me figure out what I need to do for upcoming projects. I highly recommend her!! Marjorie Marenberg, MD
As always, each time I have done business with Janet Mashia and the William Pitt Sotheby's office, every detail from start to finish was in perfect order. And it went quickly on my terms too :-). Denise Demaras
Janet Mashia has been our realtor for years and several transactions. I recommend her to all my friends and colleagues who asks for a realtor whether buying or selling (or both). They are always grateful. What can I say, she is truly the epitome of the knowledgeable and skilled professional and then there is so much more than that. Janet is completely invested in finding her clients the best buyer or the best home to live in...she works tirelessly and is responsive to all questions (even if you repeat them because you are unclear), Janet knows construction, from the basement to the rooftop. She always refers to the professional (roofer, plumber, etc.) but understands the importance of looking below the surface of a home. Janet is a financial asset - again referring to experts - but so helpful in understanding how to price, how to bid (what a market we just faced!). She is the real deal - a rock star of realtors. Janet is relational, professional, a serious ally and a woman of great integrity. We trust her completely. Having Janet Mashia on your team is an assurance of success. William & Dorothy DeBernardo
As always, Janet had my back and took care of all the details from start to finish. It was a quick sale with the closing time I requested. She is a true professional and I highly recommend her for purchasing, renting, or selling (I have done all with her!) Denise Demars
Our house sold in the first few hours that it went on the market. Great job Frank & Eileen Cunningham
We could not ask for a better team than Janet Mashia and Tony Nuzzo, They patiently walked us through the process. always avaiable to address any questions or concerns we had. Janet really went above and beyond to make sure we had all of the information we needed and to help us stay on top of everything. Our house sold in a weekend at the price we hoped to get. It is hard to imagine that we could have had an easier or more successful journey in selling our home. Michael Green Terri Fried
Excellent job from beginning to end. Janet was on top of all of the details. She made sure that all of the inspections happened timely and that the attorneys had everything they needed to ensure a smooth closing. Easy to work with. Rita D'Amico
Janet Mashia was wonderful-- professional, patient, knowledgeable, uncompromising, and a source of calm in a stressful process. We always felt she had our back Michael Green & Terri Fried
Hal and I want to let you know how much we appreciate all that you did to make our purchase of a home in Essex a reality. We have bought and sold several homes in the last 15 years and worked directly with five different realtors, all of whom have been excellent. Your work on our behalf for the Essex house went above and beyond what we expected – beyond listening carefully to our hopes and goals for our new home, you identified many properties for us to see, then successfully guided us through negotiating a purchase, helped us find professionals we needed to complete the deal and continue to be a wonderful resource for us. We can’t think of anything you could have done better and are thankful to have worked with you. We will be passing your name on to people we know or meet who are looking for homes in the area. Mary H.
I can't thank Janet enough for the outstanding job she did in handling the sale of our Killingworth home. Right from the first visit to our house to discuss selling it, her suggestions and advice for preparing the house for sale were right on the money and made a difference in being able to sell our home in four months. Her attention to every detail throughout the listing and sale was incredible and made the entire process easy and flawless showing her knowledge and personal caring beyond anything we would have expected based on other people's experiences who have sold their homes in recent years. We especially appreciate Janet's extra help and support on closing day to get us ready for the new owners. We could not have done it without her help. We are finnally settled in our new home and will never forget Janet's help in getting us here. Paula B.
I found Janet to be professional, courteous, meticulous and knowledgeable. She was consistent with feedback. It was a pleasure collaborating with her. In my opinion, Janet is an asset to your company. Viviennne A.
If you are looking for the house of your dreams call Janet. She is a realtor who loves her job. We has a specific list of must have . She truly listened to our list. She sent us listings to look at almost daily. She was patient, compassionate and determined to find a home for us. We closed on the house of our dreams, the house of must have one month ago and will be forever thankful to Janet. Paul & Jane P.
Janet is extremely professional yet down to earth real estate agent with a precise knowledge of the local market and the overall home selling process. From day 1, she provided us with expert and realistic guidance on the fair market value of our home, appropriate pricing, minor improvements to enhance curb appeal and home staging, among other suggestions. Her honesty was greatly appreciated, as we needed to sell our home quickly. Thanks to Janet’s experience and suggestions, we prepped our home appropriately, priced aggressively, introduced it to the market with a weekend open house and had our first offer within 48 hours of it hitting the market. We closed on the sale in less than 60 days. We attribute the success of the sale to Janet’s local experience, real estate market expertise and drive to sell. We HIGHLY recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home in CT. Thank you Janet! Bill N.
Janet Mashia was the perfect realtor to handle to sale of my home. She walked through many times before we settled on a price that was reasonable to both of us, considering the current market in my town, the age of the house and the amenities of the house. She had several open house opportunities and many showings. The patience and kindness she showed during the process of cleaning out my home of 44 years was incredible. She offered very reasonable suggestions to make the house as desirable as possible. I would highly recommend Janet to be your realtor. I could not be happier with the entire process, thanks to her. She also helped me with the purchase a new home! She is a professional in all aspects of real estate. Carol S.
I want to commend Janet Mashia for her impeccable performance in representing me as a Seller and Buyer. The circumstances of the sale of my property were extraordinarily complicated and personally difficult. Janet stood by me always advocating for my best interest with professional advice that was practical, yet so very compassionate too. Janet went far beyond what even a terrific realtor would do for her client. I would recommend her enthusiastically to everyone. I write this letter from our new home. It is because of Janet’s diligence that we are here today. I am profoundly grateful. Dorothy M.
You have many choices ahead of you as you begin a real estate transaction. I know first hand; my wife and I just completed both a sale and a purchase from an old home to a new one. It is all at once exciting and potentially stressful, but with the right help, it is a rewarding experience. One of the first decisions you will make is who you choose as your Real Estate Agent. I happily recommend Janet Mashia. Like many people, we came to Janet with lots of ideas about selling our current house, and what we wanted in a new one. Janet listened to our ideas, and set about guiding us toward the future. She gave us open and honest feedback about our expectations and backed all of it up with extensive research on the markets we were working in. She gladly arranged showings to fit within the lifestyle of working parents, patiently spending the time we needed to discover what was truly important to us as we executed these transactions. Furthermore, she remained abreast of changing market conditions and kept us informed of the impact those changes would have on us. That hard work enabled us to concentrate on the decisions at hand without worrying about if we had all the available information. Anytime we needed anything, Janet provided it, or knew where we could find it. The real estate market can be an unpredictable arena. Undoubtedly, you will face some difficult decisions. Your choice in agents doesn’t need to be one of them. Janet’s guidance was second to none, leading us to a beautiful new home, and a successful sale of our old one. I couldn’t recommend anyone higher. Jeff S.
Janet was the ideal realtor for a couple buying a house with no knowledge of Connecticut: low-key, informative, well-organized, empathetic. She was a shrewd negotiator during the closing process, and could not have represented our interests better. What I valued most about Janet was her understanding that buying a house is a business transaction. There was none of this you don't want to insult the seller nonsense, and she gave us a firm foundation for what we should bid on a property and why. I can't rate Janet more highly as a realtor. She's a professional on every level. Joe F.
I had the opportunity to engage with Janet Mashia. Through a laborious evaluation process my family company selected and contracted with Janet and William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty to represent us in the sale of our water front property on the Connecticut shoreline. Her attention to detail, diligent efforts, market knowledge and professionalism affected the swift sale of our property within a couple of months of listing it. She was mindful and focused on promoting and protecting the seller’s (our) interests, while also being practical and reasonable in the final negotiations. Anyone considering hiring a real estate agent for the sale of their property should look no further than Janet Mashia. You would be well served given a chance to receive her guidance and representation. Peter G.
Janet is the best! The transaction with the Buyer and relocation company was difficult at times but Janet was always professional, prompt, courteous and extremely informative. She priced the house right. We could not be happier with her performance. Robert & Jennifer
