    In 2013, The Jane Reitz Team was ranked #11 of all agents in the city of Boston for highest revenue production. With over 80 sales in Charlestown last year, and 53 million in revenue 84% of Jane's Charlestown listings went under agreement in the first week on market, Jane boasts the highest list price to sales price percentage (105%)
    From 2010-2012, despite market fluctuations, Jane's unique approach to real estate earned her the highest list to sales price percentage in Charlestown (100.4%)
    Jane's entire business plan is based on delivering the sales price she recommends to a client (or more). When she started listing properties in Charlestown in 2007, the market was weak and properties often sat on the market. Sellers often got much less than they listed for. Jane's strategic approach to pricing earned her consistent bidding wars and over asking price, even in that weaker market.
    Jane has worked and lived in the metropolitan Boston market for more than 15 years.   She spent 15 years of working in sales in Corporate America selling enterprise level solutions to C-Level executives in various capacities.  During that time she was involved in complex negotiations throughout major organizations.
    Jane began her real estate development career in 1998 when she renovated her own two-family house in Charlestown, MA.  This renovation gave her expertise and contacts in all aspects of real estate development and it also exposed her to all of the potential pitfalls. She has used this experience to help her clients add value to their own real estate purchases.
    She then proceeded to partner with a developer in various other development projects including two multi-million dollar projects in Boston's South End and several projects in the Charlestown area. It was these experiences that lead Jane to her love of real estate.
    Jane draws on her own experiences with realtors and developers, identifying what consumers need from a broker and what was lacking in the marketplace.   Providing her clients with superior customer service and dedication, Jane strongly employs a sense of professionalism, knowledge of technology and superior negotiating skills, critical to today's complex marketplace.
    Jane's consistent success in a highly volatile marketplace can be attributed to her knowledge of the Boston market/landscape coupled with her ability to listen to her client's specific requirements.  By truly understanding her client's needs and desires, Jane is able to simplify the process of finding their ideal home at the best possible price.  Furthermore, she cuts through the endless inventory that is on the market to identify the key homes and locations that meet her clients' standards.  She constantly previews homes in person and online so her clients will not have to spend every Sunday attending open houses of properties that are not right for them.
    Through today's technology, buyers and sellers have more information at their disposal than ever before.  However, it is even more critical to have a real estate professional representing you who can analyze and understand the staggering amount of data available and then can educate their customers about the market to make the best decisions towards their future.  This ensures that the buyer will not overpay for their home and that a seller will price their home to attract the largest pool of buyers.  
    During the offering process and beyond, many obstacles can arise that can spoil a real estate transaction.  It is critical to have an experienced negotiator on your behalf.  Jane uses her negotiating experience to ensure the deal stays current and that her client's needs are met.
    If you are thinking of buying or selling real estate in today's market you will need an experienced professional to guide you through the process.  Jane will assist you in every stage of the real estate transaction to ensure that you achieve a successful outcome and best possible return on your investment.

    Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Charlestown, Boston, MA.

    Jane and her team did an amazing job selling my condo in Charlestown during a terrible economy. She priced it reasonably and the price was in-line with the recent sales. However, with her aggressive marketing and shrewd negotiating skills, we sold it for $22K over the asking price. Also, it sold in 4 days!! It would have sold faster, but she insisted on waiting to accept any offers until the open house, which inevitably drummed up a lot more business. She has a proven plan of attack and it works. She and Kaitlin are also very responsive and were great about organizing the punch-list items, as I lived out-of-state and couldn't tend to them myself.

    I have always hated the real estate game, but Jane and her team made it easy.

    Jane was a pleasure to work with and definitely one of the best agents in the area. She was very knowledgable, professional, and pleasant. We would highly recommend her to anyone selling a home in Charlestown.
