Client Reviews Buyers and Sellers Recommend Janet

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

“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

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”

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 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 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.

- David Williams, Washington, D.C.

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.
