Janet is smart, energetic, responsive and effective. She has an excellent sense of timing and moved when our project needed to move and held back when that was appropriate, too. She communicated with Owner clearly and concisely and therefore inspired confidence that when Owner communicated to her a view or position, that was precisely what was communicated to the other party's broker. Likewise, you could rely on her reports of actions and conversations as being accurate. She was thoughtful and patient in discussions of strategy and negotiating positions. Janet exercised initiative and good judgment when the property needed to be shown or otherwise marketed or contractors or regulatory or other interested persons needed to be contacted or scheduled. Throughout the process she was pleasant and accessible. She has a "stable" of contacts, contractors and other experts that she ably brings to bear as needed. We were delighted with the outcome(sale at the asking price) and recommend her highly.
I had searched for properties in Narragansett on my own for a while, not wanting to commit to an agent and felt that I knew the area well having previously lived there. After meeting Janet at one of her listings, I came away impressed with her insight, perspective, and patience with a first time buyer. Throughout the process, she was extremely responsive, had terrific contacts from contractors to engineers, and truly covered all the bases. I found the perfect property without stretching my budget. Would not have been as smooth a process without Janet's help.
We used Janet Kermes from Lila Delman to purchase our home in Narragansett, Rhode Island. We cannot say enough good things about her professionalism, her integrity and her ability to solve complex problems.
Janet showed us many homes in Narragansett, including several which were not yet on the market. She understands South County, Rhode Island. She knows the land and property values, and she knows how to get to the closing table.
Our transaction at times was difficult, and Janet helped through every challenging step. She was an adept negotiator - we cannot stress that enough. Janet truly understands how emotional purchasing a new home can be. Her insight and perspective were of immense value to our family.
She knows everyone in the real estate world - other agents, inspectors, contractors and bankers. Janet referred us to an amazing insurance broker as well, who helped us find insurance for our close-to-beach property. Without her referral, we probably would have grossly overpaid for homeowners' insurance.
Kind, honest, responsive, exceptionally friendly and thorough are words I can use to describe Janet and the outstanding service she offers. We were lucky to work with her, and we are thrilled with our new home.

Janet is a consummate professional. We faced an unusual situation in buying our home, and Janet's interpersonal and negotiating skills made the process seamless. She is extremely pro-active in gathering all the information a buyer needs to make the right decision, and has a wide network of professionals (engineers, etc) that she was able to call in when needed. Janet is very detail oriented and responsive, making you feel like you are her only customer. We recommend her without reservation to anyone seeking a real estate professional.

We had a fantastic experience working with Janet. We worked together for about two years, because we were looking for something very specific. She was incredibly patient with us, understood exactly what we were looking for, and was great at sending us only options that she knew we'd be interested in. Once we found our perfect house, Janet made the buying process - which is usually very daunting, easy and understandable. She made great recommendations for contractors, and mortgage brokers, and gave us great advice throughout the process. We would highly recommend working with her!
