About Janelle

In being a constant fixture in her home community of Corona del Mar for over 20 years, Janelle has also been an active figure in the high-end business world of Orange County for decades. As a respected employee, she has continually been promoted to more prestigious positions with widely expanded responsibilities. In her role as the Director of Special Events at Fashion Island, Janelle was responsible for organizing staple events, including the Fashion Island Concert Series, the Taste of Newport, fashion shows, and numerous charitable events. She was later promoted to the Director of Sales and Marketing at the Irvine Spectrum Center, where she used her marketing expertise to increase center-wide sales over 150% over two years. She then moved to in-house marketing at the Irvine Company, where she was the Director of Partnership Development for all of the Irvine Company properties and partnered with mega-corporations like Coca-Cola, Jaguar, and Aston Martin to facilitate cross-promotional events to help subsidize marketing budgets and build brand awareness.

Janelle switched to real estate 15 years ago and developed her own real estate appraisal firm, where she employed 15 appraisers that serviced all of Southern California from Los Angeles to San Diego. She worked for major lending corporations such as Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, and many private brokerages around the country. Janelle’s primary focus was on the luxury coastal properties up and down the Southern California coast.

Client Testimonials
" Brandon and Janelle at The File Group were absolutely wonderful to work with and are both personable and professional! They are responsive, knowledgeable and always go the extra mile to make sure they deliver. " - Greg

" Janelle helped me find a rare opportunity on Balboa Island. It was a highly sought 4-br unit. She obtained the MLS data and the full data sheet on the same day. She also was available and got me into the place for review within 48 hours prior to the first weekend it was up. So I was able to put an an offer in prior to the weekend. And I was selected from a number of applications. Janelle worked directly with the owner on the final terms, and was present at the inspection. Very happy with her work on this -- I would not have found it without her. " - Douglas R.
