About Janis

The JH Collective

JH Collective is a fresh take on the traditional real estate paradigm. Based upon the belief that clients’ needs vary and that expertise in one market does not ensure expertise in another, JH Collective relies upon a support core for marketing and technology and upon strategic partnerships with several Lake Geneva area agents to bring you the best of the best. Lead by Janis Hartley, a leading Geneva Lakes real estate agent with almost 20 years of experience, JH Collective aims first and foremost to be a trusted resource and real estate advisor to you, our clients and customers. Individually we are researchers, golfers, writers, gardeners, travelers, foodies, community supporters, and real estate visionaries. Collectively, we represent decades of experience in many property types, adept negotiators, and highly respected, award-winning REALTORS®  guiding you to the best possible outcome in your real estate transition.



Certified Residential Specialist 

Born and raised in New York, my innate sense of curiosity brought me to Wisconsin as a Marquette University college freshman. Four years later, I continued my love affair with the Midwest as a graduate student at the University of Chicago. Seeking a lifestyle aligned with my values, I settled first in Powers Lake, then headed west to the Lake Geneva area I raised my children, Emma-Catharine and Alexander. Family time is a priority and I waited until my children were older before embarking on this challenging and rewarding career called "Real Estate." We've all enjoyed the natural beauty and more relaxed lifestyle the area affords us. Each of us has run the many country roads, sailed or swam in Geneva Lake, and walked its shore path.


Luxury Marketing Home Expert

Working with sellers and buyers is a privilege. My clients entrust me with their most important and valuable assets: their home, their property, their dreams, and their goals. Having moved multiple times (albeit within Walworth County), I empathize with the stressors sellers face and with the excitement, buyers embrace in finding the right home. Having sat on all sides of the closing table, I embrace mutual transparency; treating all parties fairly and honestly, and establishing a benchmark for excellent service.  

Whether selling or buying, choosing the right real estate agent is one of your most important decisions. Your questions are welcome here! Call me and let's explore the Geneva Lake Area together.
