About Me

Who's Your Realtor? Janet Brekke Real EstateWhen I originally got started in real estate it wasn't as a sales agent. I actually started my career in marketing. I began as an ad sales rep working for the Daily News just after graduating from CSUN, I worked for nearly 15 years calling on local real estate offices and agents developing advertising programs for their businesses. I was the person responsible for selling the real estate section in the Sunday paper. Those 15 years were invaluable in contributing to the success that I have achieved since transitioning into the sales side of the real estate industry. This is because I developed a network of literally more than 1000 area agents in the tri-valley region.

Today seldom is there an agent I do not know, in fact, I have known many of them for 30 years! This is a tremendous advantage when negotiating the sale or purchase of your home. Imagine eight offers on a property and seven are from new or out of the area agents with no history or relationship and one from that ad rep from all those years ago, a person you quickly recognize, know, and trust who has become one of the areas leading real estate agents. It's one of the many reasons why I can say, " I do everything all realtors do... only I Do It Better". Give me a call, all I ask for is the opportunity to interview for the job of representing you!
