She is also a Certified Negotiation Expert and was one of NRT's Top 1,000 Sales Associates in 2018.
Originally from Seattle, Jannette lived in San Francisco and Virginia before buying her home in the Alden on Central Park West. She spends quality time in the park with her rescued pooch, Tina Tofu and playing tennis. She enjoys dining out, volunteering to help animals, and exploring New York.
She invites you to ask her about her "One Hour Power" program, her secret to success as a top broker for NYC for the past 9 years. Her focused goal is to facilitate an outcome that exceeds expectations. Optimistic, efficient, and organized, she will make your real estate purchase or sale seamless to you.
"I interviewed five brokers when I decided to sell my co-op. Jannette won me over with her understanding of the issues I was faced with and her positive and helpful attitude. She went above and beyond and was there when I needed her. The broker-client relationship is not an easy one because the client is usually attached to her 'home' even if she is selling it. It takes a special kind of broker to handle this with grace and diplomacy, thinking of her client’s needs but also the reality of the marketplace. Jannette does this with aplomb! I am grateful that I had the good sense to choose her." ★★★★★

"Jannette provided invaluable support at every stage of my search for an apartment in Manhattan to call my own. She did not recoil from the complicated set of needs I presented but explained clearly and honestly the difficulties I would face. She was supportive and resourceful as my situation changed over time and my ideas kept evolving. With her help, I found an apartment I love and could afford. As an added benefit, Janette was able to recommend excellent legal and financial professionals who helped shepherd the deal, working as a team to help me in realizing my dream." ★★★★★
“After looking at a number of apartments on my own, Jannette was the first broker that provided me a clear timeline and set of actions to get through the home buying process in NYC. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market and community, and helped me sort through available properties. She is helpful and supportive, and she guided me through the purchase and co-op board approval with ease.” ★★★★★
"Jannette successfully sold my New York City co-op, her recommendations for pricing proved invaluable. It is clear she knows the business and the market, she is professional and conscientious. I would highly recommend her." ★★★★★
"Jannette is the consummate professional: savvy, smart, and full of positive energy. She tailed our search for the Manhattan pied-a-terre to our unique needs, and she really “got” us. We met many realtors during our search, and Jannette truly stood out for her integrity and class - she is first-rate, both in her expertise and her human decency. She was invaluable to us as she shepherded us through the purchase, co-op package, and approval process. We have enthusiastically recommended her to our friends, and if we decide to move to another apartment, our first call will be to Jannette Patterson!" ★★★★★
