Our Team

Janet Smith
Wow, Janet is the baby with only 28 years of experience!  She has been an agent, a bookkeeper and our favorite all-around fill-in for all of us!  She loves to cruise and, along with husband Wayne, is looking forward to her first Crystal Panama Canal Cruise next month.  If you don’t catch her in the office, she’s probably in Chicago visiting her new twin grand babies!
