NEW FIRM: Lynn Williams Janson, a native of Steubenville, has formed a new residential real estate brokerage firm, Liv Az Realty, which is based in Phoenix.
It is one of the few brokerage firms in the Phoenix-metro area to offer training for new agents on how to properly establish and run, market and structure their businesses, according to representatives at the firm.
Janson and her husband, John, a Realtor, have a combined 29 years of real estate experience. Having raised three children in Scottsdale and Phoenix, she has first-hand experience of the benefits and challenges of raising a family in Arizona and serves her clients by sharing her knowledge and expertise. She understands that a home evokes cherished memories of family and friends and approaches each relationship with sensitivity, commitment, compassion, and professionalism.
“We decided to open our own brokerage for many reasons,” said Janson. “We realized the need to educate agents and train them not only on the real estate side of the business but also in how to run their own business. As a designated broker, I am highly invested in our agents’ successes. We have much more flexibility and control when it comes to working with clients and focusing on their needs.”
