Owner, Realtor®, SRES
Janelle Fazackerley is a solutions and growth oriented real estate professional who provides the perfect balance of compassion and determination. She began her career in real estate in 2006, drawn by a love of and curiosity for spaces and the history of homes. Home is an experience, and because of that, Janelle quickly discovered how rewarding real estate can be. Today, she is driven to serve people in this profoundly practical way by helping them buy or sell their homes. Whether she’s working with first-time or experienced buyers and sellers, Janelle takes uncertainty out of the process, helps ease a client’s burden, and creates a stress-free transaction.
As a third-generation Marin County resident, Janelle appreciates the area’s natural, historical, and cultural features. Her depth of knowledge of Marin empowers her to take each client’s requirements and find the perfect neighborhood to suit their needs. She’s a Seniors Real Estate Specialist®, helping older Marin residents discover somewhere special to spend their retirement, and also has expertise with country and investment properties.
Janelle uses the latest technology to stay in touch but prefers the closer contact of handwritten notes and in-person conversations accompanied by a cup of coffee. Her reputation for internalizing the needs of her clients — along with her vast knowledge and innate trustworthiness — is why past clients consistently recommend her to their families and friends.
As the oldest child in her family, Janelle’s always been a responsible self-starter. Before embarking on her real estate career, she was a San Francisco paramedic and owned a children’s clothing store in Mill Valley for over a decade. These experiences taught her how to find satisfactory solutions in any circumstance, and she continues to leverage this skill to serve her clients’ best interests.
Janelle has given back to the community by serving on numerous local boards, including The Bishop’s Ranch Retreat Center, the San Geronimo Valley Community Center, and LEAP, a nonprofit for the Lagunitas School District that she co-founded. She and her husband have also provided disaster-preparedness, CPR, and first-aid training to the community for many years. A nature lover, Janelle relaxes by hiking the West Marin ridges and walking along the beach with family, friends, and her standard poodle, Remy.
