Janet Wilkinson is a seasoned professional who brought 30 years of Wall Street experience with her when she joined the real estate industry in 2010. For 18 of her 30 years with Bankers Trust/Deutsche Bank, Janet was a senior member of the High Yield Sales and Trading Desk. She knows how to put a deal together. With a solid work ethic, Janet enjoyed a seamless transition into her real estate career. Her contagious enthusiasm and sincere love for real estate and working with people enables her to go from one deal to the next. Janet has created a niche for herself in bringing high-end service to every client and every customer. Janet believes in keeping it simple: "We treat people the way we would like to be treated, from the start of the deal to the closing table. It's not that complicated."
Janet believes there is no better city in the world than NYC, and working in the real estate industry in Manhattan is her dream come true. Her entry into real estate began in 2010 when she associated herself with Corcoran and won the Rookie of The Year Award. As Janet puts it, "at the end of my first year in real estate, I knew I wanted to build a business from the ground up; I welcomed this challenge." She also knew that an entrepreneurial path after Wall Street was an important next step for her. In search of the perfect affiliation, Compass provided what she was looking for. She tells us that the Compass business model is unique and the perfect fit for the team. Janet says, "Compass offers us cutting edge technology which can be the difference between good customer service and fabulous customer service." She has tremendous focus and believes in follow-through. She says, "Without follow-up and follow-through, you can't survive in this business. Our job is to help people reach their real estate goals. End of story." After talking with Janet we can understand why the Wilkinson LeFevre Team is enjoying great success.
Janet holds a degree in Finance from Pace University in New York City. She was born on Long Island and has lived in New York City for the past 30 years. With her wife and business partner, Susan, and their two pups, Nikki and Bella, Janet calls the Upper West Side home.
”We had interviewed a lot of agents but decided on Janet, Susan and Allison because they believed in us, our apartment and felt they could get the best price. They didn’t disappoint, because they were fantastic from start to finish. They kept us informed throughout the whole sale process, followed up with the board on the buyers package and patiently answered all our questions. They also provided an excellent online marketing campaign for the apartment including print materials (we loved how well the pictures and floor plan came out). With their Wall Street experience behind them there are no better negotiators to have in your corner whether your buying or selling. Would we work with them again? ABSOLUTLEY!”
