That moment when a new homebuyer or seller hugs me with tears in their eyes saying, “Thank You” is the moment I realize that I still love what I do even after 26 years in the business. Real estate is not just selling or buying a home, it’s about making dreams come true and that is what I do every single day. Real estate is a people business and I’m a people person - there is no better fit. My clients want someone that will get the job done right with the least amount of problems, someone who is personable, professional, patient, and someone who will follow up with them. When you hire me, you get all of that plus more! I am very well organized, an excellent communicator with knowledge of the home building process (having built two homes myself) and I’m fun to work with. I’m friendly, honest to a fault and trustworthy.

Here in Green Valley, my home since 2004, you feel a strong sense of community, with a great diversity of people from all over the world. I have lived in 10 states myself (yes, lots of cold ones) from coast to coast. I have often met people from an area that I have lived in before. Once I even ran into a lady that I went to high school with; It’s a small world we live in. I am very knowledgeable about the area, the local flora and fauna, and I love to educate people on Arizona.

When I’m not showing clients around, I enjoy reading, creating beautiful stain glass, painting, cooking and gathering with friends. If you ask my friends, they will tell you that I am fun to be around and that I am the go-to person in any group setting.

Let me be your go to person when making the big decision of buying or selling a home. Call me, I would love to talk to you.

Client Reviews

We went to Long Really to find us a home. We were extremely fortunate to get Janet. Sitting with Janet and telling her what kind of home we wanted was very easy. While talking we found out we new Janet's husband Jack. It's a small world. Janet took us house hunting until we found our home. She never gave up. We would highly recommend Janet to anyone looking for a home. Thank you again Janet. Love Rich and Kathy Navojosky

Jan is wonderful! She showed herself to be a 5 star professional....with a sense of humor. We enjoyed the whole house looking, purchasing process, knowing that Jan was always available to answer our questions and concerns with sound answers. Ken and I were out of state buyers, so after the initial home looking experience, the purchasing was done long-distance. Jan was dependable and responsible. Thank you so much, Jam. The whole experience from beginning to end was Grade A- 5 Star event.

We worked with Janet on our original purchase in Green Valley - when it came time to sell I contacted Janet again. I asked if we could meet to discuss selling the property. She said she could meet us in 4 hours (I assumed because she was busy). However when she arrived she had been doing research to provide us with up to date information - comps - etc. When we got the property listed (1 week later) we had numerous showings and received a full price offer the day it hit the market. Janet did not stop working then - she followed everything closely through the process and our house closed perfectly - Janet made the process enjoyable and is extremely knowledgeable about Green Valley and the real estate processes - I highly recommend considering Janet on a Green Valley home purchase or sale.

It has been a pleasure working with Janet. Janet is professional and her follow thru is impeccable. I would recommend anyone looking for a real estate agent who is professional and knows her stuff it is Janet!

After years of visiting Green Valley we finally decided this was a great community to retire to. It didn't take long to gather a list of houses we wanted to see. The first house we looked at was being sold by Long Realty and the realtor was Janet. We ended up buying the second house she showed us. We were in her office the next day completing the offer to buy paperwork. Janet showed as much enthusiasm as us when our offer was accepted. Now we had to go back to Wisconsin to sell our house. Janet kept in touch, keeping us informed of what was happening in Arizona. She represented us at the closing which was done electronically between Wisconsin, Arizona and Missouri. Janet made our move seem almost seamless and that is what a great realtor does!!

Janet ranks a 5 STAR with the words EXCELLENT AND OUTSTANDING! From her first visit to our property, she showed exceptional interest and checked on all details - even walking the entire lot. As we were not living in the home, we asked that no key box be placed on the door. Therefore, Janet was at the property every time a realtor wished to show it. She made sure everything looked great for the viewers. She made several helpful suggestions to help the sale and then contacted and oversaw any repair person or contractor who did any work - even at 7:00am. She was always very gracious and helpful. Wow! We can't say enough about how exceptional she is as a realtor. Thanks, thanks for such outstanding service. Chuck and Marilyn Warner, Anaheim, CA

Janet has been the most informed and honest agent we have ever worked with. Sometimes her information is not what we expect and this is the best! We know when we are working with assumptions and not accurate information. She also offers amazing support for her clients. We always recommend Janet for support in finding the house for a new home or for selling a house to the right buyer!

My wife and I have known Janet a couple of years. We were looking for a rental property in the Green Valley area where we spend the winter. After showing us several properties we made an offer which was excepted. Janet is very knowledgeable about real estate in the area and chose the properties that fit our rental requirements. All through the process she could not have been more professional. When I want to buy or sell another home I will not hesitate to call on Janet.

I really appreciated Janet's honesty and integrity as a professional. She knows the real estate business as well as the Green Valley area. Janet also has a gift to be able to match my vision with her knowledge of inventory. I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends looking to move or invest in GV.

I'd like to thank you for your fast service. your sales personnel that I had the pleasure of working with were tremendous in every respect and I could't have asked for nicer person from start to finish. Again thank you very much Rudy Valens

Janet went above and beyond what was required for us. She knows the area well and was able to answer every question we had without reservation. She was available to help 24 hours a day, and made it possible for us to buy even though we were out of state for most of the time. We felt she really had our best interests at heart and will recommend her without hesitation to friends or family who may be looking for real estate in the area in the future. Janet never pressured us at all, and that perhaps was what impressed us the most - she spent the afternoon with us showing homes that met our criteria, then told us "call me when you're ready for the next step, or if you see something else you want to look at". Not only do we think of Janet as a highly skilled real estate professional, we also consider Janet a friend and look forward to continuing a personal and professional relationship with her. Thank you Janet!

Janet is a very down-to-earth person, practical, and had our best interests at heart. She was honest and direct if she thought something we were trying to do would not be the best decision when trying to sell the house. She oversaw every detail with precision and professionalism. She had to work with us long distance every step of the way and she was terrific. We're going to miss the daily contacts with her as she is such a pleasure to talk to and work with. She helped us get every penny of what we were asking and she was ethical and fair wanting things to be rigt for both us (sellers) and the buyers. It worked out great. She is an asset to Long Realty.

We came to Green Valley not knowing what to expect. Janet Petzler made a plan. We 1st toured the town . Janet introduced us to shopping areas, hospitals and pointed out specific things she thought we’d be interested in. Janet listened to what we wanted in housing, showed us several neighborhoods and we found our home. Being from out of town, Janet took over, recommended and met contractors and inspectors, even did the final walkthrough. After we got to Green Valley she recommended a cleaning person and arranged to meet her at the house. Janet Petzler is the best. From start to finish she took care of us.
