Jan 's Testimonials
My husband, Pat, and I met Jan at an Open House in 2002.......our lucky day! We told Jan what we were looking for and, shortly thereafter, she found us the perfect home which we purchased on St. Armand's Key. We have lived there happily ever after! She is professional, knowledgeable and fun to work with. We highly recommend her if you're looking for a new home.

Jan is a realtor who has served as an extension of Center for Sight for 10+ years as it relates to MD recruiting. As you know, signing a first round draft pick is a competitive process. Jan has been conscientious and reliable in taking my Doctors through the process of finding a home in Sarasota and the surrounding areas. I would recommend her as a valuable asset that can assist in any recruiting endeavor. -David Shoemaker M.D.
My husband and I purchased a home on Siesta Key using Jan Means as our realtor. We were relocating from out of state and not familiar with the area. Jan’s complete knowledge of the Sarasota area was very helpful to us. Our transaction took place with ease due to Jan’s thorough, professional attention to detail. We would highly recommend using Jan as a real estate professional.

Jan at Rosebay helped us buy our first home. Having her with us at the closing was very helpful. She made it an easy process. Now, after six years, we are looking with Jan for our next house. She has been patient in showing us a variety of houses with the features that interest us. We enjoy working with someone who knows the area well and understands our style. She has fostered a connection of loyalty between us and is a part of our community family.
