Janet has her clients’ best interests at heart: She believes that buying or selling a house is one of the biggest decisions a person can make in their life, and she wants to educate and make sure her clients are making an informed decision. Education has been of paramount importance in the Lee family, and Janet firmly believes in keeping on top of the ever-changing real estate market, whether it’s local, regional or national— after all, it affects everyone no matter where they live!
Janet started working early in life: a paper route taught her dedication, sales and commitment to her clients. She also worked for her dad’s business, and she followed his example of valuing hard work and always doing her best. This experience also taught her about the many processes involved in running a business. Janet later worked as a part-time office manager and as a full-time mom when her daughters were little, and then made the move into real estate when her youngest, Brenna, was seven years old.
Having been a resident in Gig Harbor for over 30 years, Janet knows the ins and outs of the city and currently lives right in downtown Gig Harbor with her husband. She enjoys playing tennis, kayaking, and pretty much any sport; playing several competitive sports growing up taught Janet the value of teamwork. She’s a team player and uses her skills to effectively negotiate for her clients so it’s win-win for everyone! Janet also enjoys traveling, and her faith and family are the most important things to her.

Tell us more about the kind of real estate you specialize in! What neighborhoods do you work in?
I live, work and play in Gig Harbor and I just love it here! I’ve lived here in the Harbor for over 30 years, in three different houses and in three different neighborhood settings. I specialize in residential homes: I sell luxury homes, waterfront homes, condos, and all other residential homes, as well lots and land, and I have done corporate relocation for years as well!
To me, selling homes in Gig Harbor is more about selling a lifestyle. It is laid-back and has a small town feel, and once you cross the Narrows Bridge, it is truly a breath of fresh air. We are surrounded by water, trees and beautiful views and it is a pleasure to call it home!
