About Our Team


Our common goal is to consistently exceed all customer expectations by never losing sight that it is our honesty, loyalty, understanding, accountability and creativity which sets us apart in this industry.

Whether you are a seller looking to maximize the profit of your home or a buyer seeking the greatest value for your home purchase dollar, you will have peace of mind knowing the Janet Parsons Team is in your corner.

While the average agent in the US sells three homes a year, Janet’s average over the course of her career is more than 70 homes per year. By using this team approach, we are able to offer you a level of professionalism and productivity unavailable through an average real estate agent working alone.

“The person who figures out how to harness the collective genius of his or her organization is going to blow the competition away.”
-Waltor Wriston

We will always welcome the opinions of our colleagues and clients so we may continuously improve productivity and customer satisfaction. Our commitment to continuous training and education will allow us to strive for excellence and achieve better service for our clients.
