It was an absolute pleasure working with Janet. She is knowledgeable, trust worthy & diligent. From the beginning she was very clear explaining the process & regularly kept me up to speed on any changes. She was also extremely helpful in getting me the highest price for my property. I would strongly recommend Janet in the future.

Janet is a conscientious, hard-working Realtor. She also has a keen eye for what can and should be done to make a home as attractive as possible to potential buyers, and has a strong support staff behind her. She won’t hesitate to put in whatever time is needed to close a deal.

After Janet sold my home in Jamaica Plain, I was able to buy my dream condo in Florida. This is a picture taken from the living room looking out to the Gulf. I have seen many dolphins and a great variety of sea birds. It’s a million dollar view. Thank you for helping me make this dream a realty.
Sandy Crary, Dunedin, Florida, “ZILLOW”
Janet, has been helpful in providing advice regarding co-ownership of property that was in dispute. Her knowledge of the marketplace and how to negotiation towards an equitable solution was valuable to me in ways beyond what I have come to expect from a realtor. I would recommend Janet to all I know.

Hard-working. Trustworthy. Resourceful. Compassionate. Knowledgeable. Professional. Courteous. Helpful. Honest. Committed. –These are all words I can use without reservation to describe Janet Porcaro as a real estate agent. She kept on task, made all arrangements as necessary, told me exactly what I needed to do, explained everything clearly, and was sensitive to our concerns, making the whole process as painless as possible. She is thoughtful and full of ideas. I felt like she was my personal “House-Selling for Dummies” guide.
Sayuri Miamoto, Newton, MA “ZILLOW”
Janet has assisted us in a number of real estate transactions over the course of the last 8 years. She has been exceptionally patient and helpful in not only the process of these transactions but in the tough decisions that preceded them. While others might have rushed us, Janet’s ultimate goal was to keep her clients happy. With us, she has achieved that goal!
