Client Reviews Buyers and Sellers Recommend Janet

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? Aaron Sacharow, Brookline, MALinkedIn

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, “LinkedIn

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”

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”

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, “

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”

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 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 worked with Janet when looking for a condo for my daughter and I have watched Janet over the years as she has helped others to find the house or condo that best fits their needs. Janet is totally dedicated and honest. Unlike many brokers in the competitive world of real estate, she really cares about the well being of her clients and is not just out there to make a buck. She has integrity and is fully committed to giving each client as much care and attention as she possibly can. She takes her work extremely seriously and is always passionate and focused in her search for the right home for her client. She believes in a more personal and individualized approach to brokering. Judy Rosenberg, “ZILLOW”

Janet is knowledgeable about Greater Boston and has been a fantastic adviser during this process. She’s wonderful, kind, caring and understanding of first-time homebuyers’ concerns. I highly recommend her services. She has worked tirelessly over the last 3.5 months to help us find our first home and we could not be happier with the home we’re hopefully going to own in a few short months! She will be as hands off or hands on as you need her to be. She is available for any questions and will work within your timeline. Again, I can’t recommend her highly enough. It will be a sad day when I will not get an email or call from her once we close on our house, but we’re hoping for her to be our realtor for life. Janna and Kai Strand, Brookline, MA, “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

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 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”


As an attorney that specializes in residential real estate transaction I work with a wide variety of realtors. Janet’s focus on her clients, and her commitment to securing the best deal for them (whether the client is a buyer or a seller) demonstrates her firm commitment to service. She is always willing to go the extra mile and is a pleasure to work with. Zuser, “ZILLOW”

I have worked with Janet on the buying side of transactions and she is amazingly helpful and responsponsive. Her ability to insert personal knowledge and experience into information allowing the buyer make educated decisions on their own is priceless. If you’re looking for a Realtor that really adds value and at the same time values you as a client then Janet Porcaro is for you. J. Doyle, “ZILLOW”

Janet is a very experienced realtor who has a very impressive knowledge of Newton and surrounding area. Her involvement in the community shows in her ability to connect people and help her clients buy a sell their homes. She is a pleasure to work with.
