Previously, she spent four years building a successful practice with the Matheson Team at RE/MAX Fine Properties. Janet was awarded the prestigious RE/MAX Chairman’s Club Award in 2010 and the RE/MAX Hall of Fame Award, earning over $1 million in commissions during her first three years with RE/MAX.
Prior to becoming a realtor, Janet had a successful career in banking. She held senior positions at major financial institutions on the east coast, before relocating to Scottsdale in 2006 when she accepted a position as Chief Financial Officer for Home Equity Operations at Wells Fargo Bank.
Janet’s finance and business experience contribute to her ability to guide homeowners through the sometimes challenging process of buying, selling and financing their homes and she prides herself on developing relationships with her clients, not simply completing transactions. Both she and her partner Pat are committed to providing the highest level of service to their clients.
