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.
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.
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.
My wife and I had been setting up showings on our own in the white-hot Lake Geneva area for a few months in mid-2020 when we met Janis at one of her listings. She immediately stood out as different, in a good way, from other agents we had met during the process. Her years of experience in the market were immediately evident, however, it was her willingness to be he...
Not only was Janis highly professional and knowledgeable of the Lake Geneva-area market, but also provided much-needed patience and excellent guidance to my wife and me as we undertook our 10-month process to find the “right” home for our upcoming retirement. Janis listened carefully to the characteristics of the homes and neighborhoods we were hoping to find. Due ...
I don’t even know where to begin! Janis was there for us to help us find the home she knew would suit us perfectly. We told her what we were looking for in a home and when we were looking to move and she knows every part of this town like the back of her hand. After viewing some beautiful homes, we found one. Not to mention on the most beautiful street with incredi...
Janis helped market and sell a property that is sized bigger than the neighborhood typically offers. Being on a golf course with a balance of single-family and multi-dwelling condos, it took the right buyer to want the home and pay for the value of the property. Janis diligently showed our home over 12 months and was very good about learning the details and showing...
Janis holds deep knowledge about Lake Geneva area real estate, and she is wicked savvy. Her professionalism, attention to client care, and thorough approach, supported by an entire team of professionals, make her the best REALTOR in the area. Her referral network is unmatched. She handled a transaction for me from start to finish from 2,000 miles away. The transact...
We discovered Janis through our research for a country estate. We were thoroughly impressed upon our initial zoom call as well as when we met in person. Janis has a wealth of knowledge and expertise, specific to the type of homes and areas of Wisconsin we searched for our dream homes. Janis is so professional, there’s a reason she’s such a successful REALTOR. We ar...
Janis Hartley is the ultimate pro. She tells you exactly where the market is, and what you can expect and doesn’t play games. Janis always kept us informed about very fast-moving purchases. While I know she has many clients at any one time, it felt like we were her priority. Highly recommend Janis Hartley for any real estate needs.
Janis was great to work with on all fronts. She was on time, patient, and open to showing me home more than just a couple of times. Janis also guided me through the offer stage and helped in some key areas of negotiations. I hope to work with her again someday finding a place on the water in Southeastern Wisconsin!
