    Joins Prudential Fairfield

     FAIRFIELD – Realtor Janis Nezvesky-Schertzer of Newtown has joined forces with the Fairfield office of Prudential Connecticut Realty, announced Fairfield office leader Melissa Riley.

     “We’re excited to have Janis on board,” said Ms Riley. “She brings with her valuable leadership skills – combined with a compassionate and caring attitude – that she’s demonstrated in both her professional and personal life, and will no doubt apply to her work in real estate sales and marketing.”

     Ms Nezvesky-Schertzer has more than 13 years of relocation experience working for several relocation firms, including Prudential Relocation. A Certified Relocation Professional (CRP) and member of the Employee Relocation Council (ERC), her work led her into frequent contact with business executives, first-time homebuyers, and others who required the expertise of a relocation professional. Her work included counseling transferring employees and policy development as well as corporate client relations.

     Ms Nezvesky-Schertzer is an active member of the Newtown community, where she was born and raised. She has served as a Girl Scout leader for 13 years for the Southwestern Connecticut Girl Scout Council and is also a Life Member of the Girl Scouts of America. She is a past PTA president at the Newtown public schools and, notably, was the first female firefighter in Newtown. She is currently a volunteer firefighter in Newtown.

     “My family has been in Newtown for five generations,” she said. “Being active in the community is my way of giving back.”

     Having spent 17 years in a customer service environment, Ms Nezvesky-Schertzer said, taught her the importance of follow-up and follow-through. “The Girl Scout motto can be so aptly applied to real estate marketing: ‘Make new friends but keep the old.’ Real estate is such a people-oriented business, and following that motto when I’m helping my clients just comes naturally,” she said.

     Janis Nezvesky-Schertzer earned an associate degree from the University of Bridgeport and a bachelor’s degree from Teikyo Post University. She makes her home in Newtown with her husband, Marty, and her daughter Floren, who attends the University of Connecticut.

     She is also a member of the Greater Fairfield Board of Realtors, Connecticut Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and the Connecticut Multiple Listing Service.

    Janis Nezvesky-Schertzer will service homebuyers and sellers throughout Northern Fairfield County as well as the town of Fairfield, where her office is located.
