Client Reviews Buyers and Sellers Recommend Janet

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!

- Erin and Bryan Lackaye, “ZILLOW”

We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent than Janet. Janet was on top of the game. She’d always check the market to be the first to know if a house came on that would be of interest to us, and got us a showing right away. She also checked in with us often to see how we are feeling with the process. When we found our house, we were very impressed with Janet’s negotiating skills and her ability to look out for her our best interest. My husband and I feel very lucky to have been able to work with her.

When I decided to sell my home, I chose Janet Porcaro to assist and guide me through the daunting process. I was a first time seller and had no idea how to begin. Janet was patient, conscientious and very hard working. She has a natural eye in discerning what will help sell your home and knows the market. I had many questions, and Janet communicates effectively and honestly. She has a network of people to help in making the process go smoothly. As well as being very professional and knowledgeable Janet has an amazing calm, warm and friendly personality, I was at ease during the whole process. My home sold in a very timely manner and I couldn’t be more pleased. I look forward to her help in finding a new home.

- Mary Minor, Dedham, MA "Google"

What a pleasure! My condo was only on the market for a few days before it sold. Janet not only marketed my place way beyond my very high expectations but expertly guided me through the process so I was confident and stress-free. I cannot emphasize enough the value of her expertise and experience, she explained all scenarios and what strategies would be used and she was dead on. Janet is amazing and highly recommend her.

- Aileen Kelley, Boston, MA "Google"

Janet sold our house and steered us through the process of staging, open houses and ultimately the closing. She is engaged, motivated and was able to work with prospective buyers to get us the best price. Janet was always open to suggestions and asked for our feedback at every step of the process. We highly recommend Janet.

- Natalie Bagdonas, Newton, MA "Google"

We were very happy with Janet. She was always available when we needed her. She is certainly very dedicated to her clients. I will highly recommend her as your real estate agent!

- Juan Carlos Nuñez, Charlestown, MA "Google"

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 helped us through purchasing our first home together. Not only did she guide us through the stages of buying our beautiful new condominium, she also provided a tremendous amount of support and advice. She continuously advocated for our best interests and we are extremely thankful to her!“”

- Melissa and Joe Garlick, Roslindale, MA

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.

- Mauricio Jimenez “Real Satisfied”

Janet managed the sale of my two condos in Boston for me while I was living in CA. Thanks to her, the process was smooth and easy.

- Andrew McCormick “Real Satisfied”

Finding a single family home (while being out of the state) in this rather aggressive Boston area market was frustrating to say the least. Janet was a huge help during this process in closing the deal on a location that met our criteria: Good schools, and close proximity to our new places of employment. She is very committed to finding what you want, and her knowledge of the Newton/Brookline area is impressive–both key considerations when shopping for a realtor, no?”

- Aron Sakarow, Brookline, MA “LinkedIn”

I had reached out to Janet initially to help me in my Boston condo search. Janet was very warm and inviting and made my home buying journey very easy and enjoyable. Janet is very quick to respond and has a vast knowledge of the market and real estate in general. She was able to negotiate a great deal for me. Janet always made herself available to answer my questions. (As a first time home buyer I had a lot!) When it was time to sell my condo I knew exactly who I would be using as my listing agent. She was very helpful all a long the way. She hired professional photographers and had an extensive marketing campaign. The listing could not have come out better! Her extraordinary efforts resulted in multiple over asking bids on my condo. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Janet. I highly recommend her if you are in the market for a new home!”

- Mike Jencks, Mefield, MA “ZILLOW”

I was selling a home located in a very affluent neighborhood in Newton Centre. I did not know any realtors and I reached out to a friend. That is how I met Janet Porcaro. When I called Janet, I told her my main focus was to find a realtor whose demeanor and posture were appropriate for that market. Throughout the entire process, she was helpful; recommending contractors and other resources, and was always extremely communicative. Best of all she, pricing the property shrewdly. I would happily work with Janet again and whole-heartedly recommend her.

- Janis Gebron, Boston, MA, “ZILLOW”

“With Janet’s guidance we closed on a beautiful new construction home in Newton, MA. As out-of-state buyers Janet was our Newton/Boston insider and her expert, consummate knowledge of the region helped us to focus on a wonderful neighborhood in which to live. We were thrilled start to finish with the expert advice and professional service that Janet provided us. Her positive and enthusiastic personality made working with her a joy and we would highly recommend Janet to everyone looking to move to the Greater Boston area.”

- Bob Romeo, Newton, MA “LinkedIn”

Janet is a wonderful person who is easy to work with. She always keeps in touch and really feels like she is on your side! Janet has been able to get us in to see houses quickly, she checks in about our needs but we are not in a rush and she doesn’t push us to be. She is as helpful as can be but works on our schedule not her own.

- Zusesr, “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.

- Liz Cacciatore, Harwich Port, MA “ZILLOW”

Janet is an absolute dream to work with. Personable, honest, not pushy, and incredibly perceptive. She knows the Newton area like the back of her hand, and gives amazing advice. She is prompt at returning emails and phone calls, and always makes sure you have all the information to make the most educated decision. She makes searching for a home, an otherwise stressful venture, significantly easier, and downright pleasant. It goes without saying, I very highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

- Jesse Pino, YELP

Janet has helped me to find out the best home for me. She has taught me a lot about the purchasing process as well as other precious information. I’m really appreciate to choose her as my agent.

- Xindai Hu, Burlington, MA “ZILLOW”

Janet was our agent when my husband and I were helping my son look for a condo in the Brighton, MA area. It had been many years since we had looked to purchase real estate. Janet was patient with us through the whole process. Offering advice and reassurance when we became frustrated and discouraged. The condo market was brisk and we were outbid on several properties before finding our son’s dream condo at a price he could afford. I would enthusiastically recommend Janet for her professionalism as well as her caring attitude!

- Fran Jencks, “ZILLOW”

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.”
