"I decided to put my Brooklyn brownstone on the market last spring. After interviewing quite a few real estate agents over the year, I, without hesitation, brought Jana Welch in to sell my home. Jana was warm, savvy, forthright and spot on about the worth of my home. She even brought her visual creativity to the process by actually going out on my back deck, getting on her hands and knees, and transforming a mediocre garden into one of great beauty! (Her background as a visual designer came in quite handy). Jana put her heart into the process. She is honest, hard working and most importantly, has the rare ability to make real connections with people in quick time -- the mark of a great salesperson. I am grateful for having her there to sell my home. It is worth noting that the house went very quickly for a very good price. Anyone who works with Jana will be extremely lucky to have her on their team." - Patti

She was fully committed to and worked hard in finding the perfect apartment for our growing family, even in one of the most competitive real estate rental markets in brownstone Brooklyn. She earnestly worked with us for several months and never let us feel forgotten or overlooked. She also brought in creative solutions, negotiated with brokers on our behalf, and persistently followed up on potential rental leads. She always demonstrated her commitment to building good and positive relationships with her clients. Jana was a real gem and a pleasure to work with!" - Rachel and Gregory

"Jana, I was so happy to have found Jana to help me sell my house. Selling a home you have lived in for many years can be complicated and very stressful, and I was so glad to have Jana there to help me through the process. She works extremely hard, makes herself available and has a calm and steadying presence - I could relax knowing that nothing would fall through the cracks. I can't think of anyone I would have trusted more to sell my house and I would highly recommend Jana to anyone." - Jill
"For close to a decade I put off selling my apartment because the idea of it seemed overwhelming. Finally I contacted Jana and from our very first phone conversation, I knew that I and my property were being well taken care of. Even when Covid led to unexpected delays, Jana kept me in the loop and anxiety free. Even better: She found a fabulous new buyer above asking price. When I am ready to re-enter the real estate market, I won’t take ten years but ten seconds to pick up the phone to work with Jana again." - Ayana
