Jan is an Associate Broker in Maryland and REALTOR® in DC and Virginia with Compass Real Estate in Chevy Chase. Jan has been very active in GCAAR since getting licensed in 2005, having served on the Rookie Society, RPAC, Events, Public Policy, and Forms Committees, and most recently on the Board of Directors. She also serves on the Board of Directors of Collaborative Dispute Resolution Professionals (CDRP) and the Collaborative Project of Maryland (CPM). Jan holds the elite Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, known as the PhD of Real Estate, which is held by fewer than three percent of REALTORS® nationwide. She is a Past President of the MD/DC CRS Chapter and the past Region 3 Vice President for CRS National. Jan's interest in serving on the GCAAR Board stems from a desire to give back to an industry that has been good to her, to advocate for its members, and to help protect homeownership rights for consumers. 

When she's not helping clients buy and sell real estate, she enjoys spending time with her grandson CJ, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Daisy, and playing tennis.
