MEET JANE DOE!
Educated at City University, Jane has brought her southern charm to the Rolling Hills neighborhood and seasoned it with just enough Yankee know-how to get the job done. She and her husband, John, a local attorney, and their eight-year-old daughter, Anne, are the typical Rolling Hills family, right down to their Cocker Spaniel. John coaches girl's baseball; Anne attends Rolling Hills Elementary School, and Jane, in addition to her commitment to Real Estate, is active in the PTA and Chamber of Commerce.
Jane brings the same dedication to work that she has shown to family and community. That is why she has created so many enduring friendships through real estate. That is why she has consistently earned her profession's highest awards that show not only what she has done for herself but what she can do for you.
When you have real estate questions or needs, look no further than the borders of your neighborhood. Jane Doe is here to help.

You can rely on Jane's ability. She will take good care of you.
