At 17 years of age in her Minnesota hometown of Minneapolis, Jane Sherman began working at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company. She was hired as a long-distance operator, literally connecting callers with the people they were trying to reach. What began as a part-time job during high school led to a 17-year career at Northwestern Bell, as Jane was promoted into the sales force and benefited greatly from the company’s outstanding sales training. Eventually, her efforts were rewarded with another promotion, this time into management as she embraced her role as a supervisor in the business office.

Sherman_0014_Layer-15All About Connecting

Anyone who knows Jane well will tell you it’s only fitting that her career started by connecting people with one another because making connections is what Jane is all about. She loves getting to know people, working with people and forging strong bonds in the process. She’s still making connections all these years later.

After 17 years at the phone company, Jane made a “long-distance connection” of her own when she and her husband moved their young family from Minneapolis to Austin. It was a huge undertaking and a difficult decision to leave home, but life in Austin had a way of easing that pain. Not surprisingly, she quickly built strong connections to the Austin community, lifestyle and people. She raised her three children here, the youngest of whom is extremely proud to be the family’s only native Texan.

Once her children were grown, Jane knew she wanted to re-enter the workforce. Combining her sales and negotiations skills from the phone company with her love for Austin and passion for working with people, she turned her sights to real estate in 2004. It was an ideal fit from day one. “It’s such a great feeling to be able to connect my buyers with the perfect home,” Jane says. “I believe any move is a major life experience, and I strive to make it go as smoothly as possible for my clients.”

To Jane, real estate is all about making connections. First of all, it’s about connecting with her clients, listening to their needs and goals and taking their important investment to heart. Then it’s about connecting buyers with the perfect property to fit their needs. For sellers, Jane is a staging expert who will present your home in its best light in order to make that connection with potential buyers.
