Janet Maya started selling real estate in 2001 in Jersey City, New Jersey, after working in the film industry for a dozen years. The real estate bug bit when she bought her first brownstone in the downtown Jersey City historic district in 1995 and oversaw every step of the renovation. She soon found herself hanging out in a local real estate office, angling to see other properties. By 2001, she had been in many of the downtown Jersey City homes because of her love for community and interest in architecture. Selling brownstones, townhouses, condominiums, Co-ops, and introducing people from Europe, New York City, and Brooklyn to Jersey City, the best-kept secret in close proximity to New York City deepened that connection to community. By 2004, she had moved on to her second historic row house, and she and her partner expanded their family with the birth of their son, Antonio. All the while, Janet continued with her fine art photography, with shows of her work in Jersey City and Manhattan.
In 2007 Janet moved her family to Nyack in order to explore school options in the area. The switch from city life to life in Nyack was a perfect transition, keeping many of the best parts of the urban life they were used to. Janet continued to work on her photography, became interested in local farming and plugged in to her new community. Giving back to the community is of central importance in her life.
Weld Realty is another perfect match for Janet. As a small boutique agency, Weld realty is very connected, appreciative of and supportive of Nyack and the surrounding communities, and Janet loves providing the kind of service that comes with being part of a boutique agency like Weld. “Listening. Really listening to what each individual Buyer wants from a home as a functional space, or how best to market a Seller’s home, is the most important part of my service to my Customers. Of course, I bring my years of experience and my knowledge in to help people understand the market, at that time, or to see all the possibilities in their decision making.” Energy, commitment and communication is all part of the white glove service that Janet and the Weld Realty’s team pride itself on.
