Becoming a homeowner has always been my dream so in October 2011 I began searching online for something to catch my interest. I came across an interesting listing with Janet Nation as the broker. I called her thinking that our conversation would be one of direct questioning followed by a trade of info, I was wrong. We actually stayed on the phone for about 30 minutes or so where she fed me detailed information to consider with realistic options. She also gave me her background in real estate. Her knowledge in the field never came across as pushy, money crazed or one sided. The conversation was patient, considerate, polite and comfortable. I knew once hanging up my phone that we had simply clicked. We had arranged to meet at her office where we agreed to include her business partner Manny Mosquera (mortgage specialist) to handle the financial questions I may have. My daughter and I left that meeting feeling great. We both spoke on how nice they were and how exciting this experience will be.
My family and I met with Janet several times, mostly on the weekends due to the fall/winter season and my need for daylight vision. What an experience! She was able to guild us to and from many of our interest base on my likes, needs and financial means. She even pointed out areas we should avoid based on her knowledge of registered sex offenders in the area. She showed care and concern for our well being in every decision and direction made. She worked endlessly. I must say I truly felt a friendship developing between us. We have shared so many laughs.
On July 9, 2012 my journey literally came to a CLOSE when I signed on the dotted linesssssss of the home that met all of my expectations. The experience has been fantastic and I now sit on my sofa in my beautiful home thanking God first and My "Friend" Janet for all you've done to make me and my family some extremely happy folks :) THANKS A MILLION for your hard work and dedication.
A special thanks to Manny as well for your educated guidance and realistic figures. You both ROCK!
Michael and I would like to thank you for all of your assistance and expertise that you provided while our house was on the market.
You were a sea of calm when we got caught up in the complexities of selling our house. Your advice regarding current market trends in Baldwin was "on point" anl our house sold withn 3 weeks of being listed. You guided us every step of the way, and our sale and closing went smoothly

Working with Janet Nation was truly a pleasure. There was an instant connection made the first time we met. My fiance and I were drawn to Janet's presentation, her extensive worth of knowledge of the real estate business, her personality and the instant dedication she showed to making our dream of becoming home owners a reality. Throughout our home buying process, Janet was a advocater for my fiance and I. She always pull through and did what was promised in a professional and timely fashion. Late nights and early mornings Janet was there for professional and personal advice.
If you're looking to buy or sell your home there is no doubt that Janet is more then capable of getting the Job done.
Thank you Janet for everything.
Keri & Keeffe, Baldwin
Janet, I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate both you and Manny for making the American dream come true for our family. We also would like to thank you for the gifts. You are the best. Keep up the good work, and may God continue to bless you and your family. Happy New Year.

I would like to highly recommend Mrs. Janet Nation as a Realtor. As a first time homebuyer this process can be stressful and scary, however, this was minimized by her answering questions that I had or getting answers from the right people If she did not know. She made herself available and got me in to see properties quickly. The most impressive thing about Janet is her team. She has everybody that you need to get through the process including contractors. She is someone that I would want on my side in my future real estate endeavors.

We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us. You made our first time home buying experience an amazing one! You worked so hard on getting us this home and supporting us all the way to closing that I can truly say you have become more than just our Realtor, you have become our friend. Thank you so very much for helping us start our lives together in our new home!

We bought our house about two years ago, but we have been looking around for more than a year before we got the help we need from Janet and her team. We have been to too many open houses in the area but not getting anywhere near closing. Janet and her team guided us with their expertise. Househunting and buying are unarguably stressful. Janet and her team definitely took a lot of the stress from us by guiding us every step of the way: meeting to determine what we want and how much we can afford, where to look, arranging to view the houses, discussing the pros and cons, etc. - every detail that we probably could easily overlook if we were on our own. Most importantly, we felt confident knowing that Janet is on our side. We have moved in to our new house and Janet still made us feel that we can always give her a call if we need her help.

"Greetings to all home sellers and buyers!
We tried to sell our house several times without success. We listed our house with common, everyday realtors. Last year my wife and I sold our house in a short sale and Janet Nation was our real estate agent. Janet spent a good deal of time with us to learn about our situation. She gave us good information, and was very open with us from the very beginning and throughout the entire sale we found her to be pleasant, professional and focused.
The requirements for short sales are different than regular home sales and the agent-attorney team has to have a solid understanding of the complete process. To complete the tedious short sale process the realtor and attorney has to work very well together. The attorney Janet worked with in our case was equally superb.
Once we agreed to sign a contract with Janet she went right into action, taking all the house photos, scheduling open houses, and placing the listing on multiple websites.. The house got a good deal of exposure to potential buyers. We found the right market price for the house and interest picked up right away from buyers.
When offers were made on the house, we gave Janet total control to weigh the credentials of each potential buyer. We were eager to take advantage of her wealth of experience. Janet knew very well which buyers truly wanted the house and those who could actually secure the loan.
We personally needed a very resourceful realtor such as Janet to help us sell our house. The common, everyday realtor didn’t work for us. So, if you want to sell your home, you cannot afford to pick the wrong real estate agent, if you don’t have the time to find a good lawyer or to screen the credentials of potential buyers, we strongly recommend Janet Nation to your attention with absolutely no reservations.

On behalf of my family and myself, I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You were truly a Heaven sent and we are eternally grateful. I can barely express the depth of my gratitude with mere words, but I will try. Your level of professionalism and knowledge is impeccable, not to mention your honesty and dedication. As your clients, you never made us feel like you didn't have time for our questions or concerns, and you always had a positive outlook and optimistic viewpoint. I really appreciated that because it kept me calm and confident that we would, in fact, find the perfect home for our family. As first time home buyers, we are so thankful that we had YOU to guide us through the tedious process with a realistic approach and the understanding of what entering into home ownership is all about. You were a wealth of experience from beginning to end; you provided us with so much helpful information to becoming acclimated with our new neighborhood, and your housewarming gift was that touch of class and elegance, just like you. So again, we say Thank you. In closing, I would just like to say that I am happy to have found a new friend and neighbor, and to let you know that you will be getting many calls as I have been "raving" about you and your entire team, who I refer to as "The Dream Team!" You guys made this experience so stress free and smooth, from the house hunting, to getting the mortgage, right through to the closing, which went off without a glitch. So, yes, it was a dream, all thanks to you and your team! We are Homeowners!!!

“Janet is a great realtor. She was very patient with us when we were looking for our first home. As with any first time home buyer, our wish list was as long as a 5 year old in a toy store. She guided us through the process and we finally found our dream home after a long journey. We are very grateful to have such a knowledgeable, professional and patient realtor on our side.”

“I was a real estate agent myself years ago, so I can say that Janet Nation is one of the most proficient, professional, warm and caring individuals I have come across in the business. She is sincerely concerned for the benefit and welfare of her clients, and is always in contact with them and there to answer and clarify any questions or concerns that may be present. We might win the award for her longest clients, but it was time well spent. We went into contract on 2 prior houses, that consumed many months because the seller's agents were not as proficient nor as efficient as Janet is. Not only is she excellent, but her whole team is as well. It was due to Janet's sound advice and sharp sense of the real estate business, that made us opt out of the long wait. After finding another property, she expedited all transactions, and landed us in a house that we are very happy with. She came highly recommended to us, and proved her knowledge and capabilities time and time again. We, likewise, recommend her highly to everyone we know! Janet you're awesome!”

“I thought "house hunting" was going to be time consuming and plodding. You listened, gave encouragement, and got exactly what I wanted without wasting my time. My experience working with you was amazing. We even got it on the first try!!! I'll always recommend and sing your praises.”
Deborah Smith, Freeport, NY
We would like to thank you not only for your extremely thoughtful housewarming gift but for all of your hard work, dedication, and just your overall support in helping us acquire a house that we really wanted. You never gave up on us and really stood by us no matter how long it took us to find a house that we could call home. You were always honest and upfront about all the information that you gave us. Overtime, you gained our trust and we knew that we were lucky enough to have found the only reliable and trustworthy agent in the business! You truly listen to your clients and try to find their best possible options within their budgets. Unfortunately the housing grant that we applied for did not work out ,but we would have never even known about it without your knowledge of it and bringing it to our attention as well as walking us through the process. You are an overall gem and we wish you much success in all that you do. If we ever hear of someone looking for an agent, we will surely recommend you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we hope that we have transcended from clients to friends. It was truly a pleasure working with you!

Janet is a very gracious and warm person. She followed our wish list and helped us to find our new home from start to finish. She was always there for us and we appreciate her for going above and beyond her duties on our behalf. We would recommend her to anyone.”

“I found Janet's knowledge and expertise to be crucial in helping me find the perfect home. After hearing so many people complain about this process, I went in expecting the worst, fortunately Janet made the process pain free. She advised me every step of the way. And even helped me negotiate a lower price tag, despite my being ready to give in to the seller’s price.”
David Paterson, Rockville Center, NY
“You are such a good business woman -- Kudos to you Janet !! I love your work ethic."
Donna Fykes, Uniondale, NY
“Janet delivered all the way. After making us paint, rearrange our home and sweat during a holiday weekend, when we would have rather done something else with our time, she sold our home at listing price and was later able to find us a wonderful home. The number one thing we noticed and loved about Janet, is her patience and professionalism. Thank you for everything Janet, you are highly recommended.”
Donna and Charles Nelson, Baldwin, NY
Janet, you were very patient and we appreciated that you did not impose your personal beliefs and ideas on us. In the end you helped up find a beautiful home that we hope to enjoy for many years to come. You're the best, easily.
