Over Six years ago, Janet diversified into Real Estate after a 35 year wonderfully successful career as a Senior Level Interior Architectural Designer. Her specialty has been focused on the Residential Remodeling Design/Build Industry. Janet has worked in this field from West Coast to East Coast, San Diego to Cape Cod to Boston. She earned accolades as Certified Kitchen and Bathroom Designer, won awards for projects, and has been featured in design magazines. She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree (with/high honors) majoring in Interior Architecture at the greatly respected Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT) in Boston. She also studied Organic Architecture with Dr. Eugene Ray at SDSU for two years in the ‘90s.
Janet approaches Real Estate with a passion equal to that of design; forever pushing herself for the highest level of skill, dedication, professionalism and with complete honesty. She quickly connects with her clients’ needs while remaining focused to represent their best interest. Since Janet has spent most of her life managing multiple construction projects simultaneously, she has developed highly skill eye for quality of workmanship and construction standards. Janet’s vast experience has led to her extensive materials and technical knowledge as well as project supervision, creative resolution (aka: troubleshooting), negotiation and customer relations.
Janet is what is known as a true “Cape Codder”, raised on Cape Cod, MA she first moved to San Diego in 1990; and like most, fell forever in love with the lifestyle of Southern CA.
Janet met her husband at a bonfire party on the beach one 4th of July. This was back in the days when you would find bonfires glowing along the beaches every evening, starting at Tourmaline to MB and then along Mission Bay. Her husband Richard is in the construction industry and together had one child; their big ‘WHY’. They are enamored by the kind loving young woman she has grown into.
Beyond family, Janet has many passionate interests, mostly circling The Arts and Culture. She enjoys sun shining days, long walks, glorious sunsets, nature and hiking, exercise, live plays, great movies, live music, sketching, painting, sewing, and entertaining.
Most of all Janet is passionate about making the most of every day, a life well lived!
