We are very pleased to recommend Janet Kovacs. We were exploring multiple options before we listed our Irvington home with Janet in 2013. We had local realtor friends with many years experience and we were also seriously considering selling it by owner. Then Janet knocked on our door and from that first meeting on, we knew she was going to go above and beyond to meet our expectations. She knows the regional market and real estate business, has a "can-do" attitude, and is a trusted partner through the process. So, at the end of the day, its about results. Within the first 2 weeks, we had multiple bids and Janet was masterful in managing that process. The negotiation, contracts and closing process with our buyers, bankers and lawyers went flawlessly, with Janet on top of all the details. We have since recommended Janet to many friends and, although we moved out of state, we continue to keep in touch and value our friendship with her.

Janet is an incredible realtor who knows the Rivertowns inside and out. She goes above and beyond to ensure that deals goes as smoothly and easy as possible. Janet made our cross-country move seem like it was just around the corner. She was our eyes, ears, and feet on the ground. I can't imagine anyone else being as dedicated, devoted, and determined. I would work with her again in an instant!

Dedicated. Patient. Knowledgeable. These are the 3 words that sum up Janet's approach to helping us successfully find our new home in Irvington.  We had been looking in a very low-inventory, hot market in the Rivertowns and surrounding area for almost 1.5 years.  It was hard to find a place that suited our needs and within our price range.  But Janet never gave up.  She alerted us to all listings that she thought might be a fit and went above and beyond to fit us into her schedule so that we did not miss out on a single opportunity.  It certainly helped that she is a Rivertown native and raises her family here!  We were out in the rain, in the snow, on weekends and on weekdays.  She was strong in managing our expectations, providing us market insights that were always spot on, and always gave us the room to make the decision that was right for us.  Her perseverance and patience paid off:  we finally found a house that we adore in a neighborhood that we love.

We cannot say enough positive things about our experience working with Janet. From the first step of looking at homes through the closing, Janet was there for us every step of the way to answer our questions as well as give professional advice. Her knowledge of the local area and market is second to none. We would recommend Janet to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home in the Rivertowns. Thank you, Janet, for getting us into our dream home!

Andrea & Kevin

Janet Kovacs exceeded our expectations for what a Realtor can do. Caring, savvy, and extremely personable, she led us through each stage of selling our home with expertise. When thorny issues arose, she solved them swiftly and authoritatively. A great person to have at the wheel during what can be a bumpy and emotional ride!
