Janet M. Bell Associate Real Estate Broker Win Morrison Realty Almost 40 years of conducting consumer research for Fortune 500 companies trained Janet Bell (Jan) well in the art of listening to people’s needs and finding solutions that would fulfill their desires. Recognizing that emotions are a very important part of the purchase or sale decision, especially when it comes to real estate, Jan also knows that those emotions must be validated by facts and reason to result in a sound deal. Jan’s unique qualities are her empathic nature, professional manner, level-headedness, creative problem-solving ability, and interpersonal savvy in helping people to feel comfortable and confident in their decisions. Buyers and sellers who work with her get a clear understanding of the market as well as personal attention every step of the way through the often-intricate transaction process. Her own experience owning vastly different types of properties, including an early American historic home and a multi-unit investment property as well as single-family homes, in both New York City and the Mid-Hudson Valley, further informs her knowledge of the real estate process. Originally from the Boston area, Jan attended MIT and Boston University, and did post-graduate work at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland and The New School in New York City. She taught high school and was a college instructor in New England before moving to New York City where she started her career in market research. She retired from market research in 2003 after holding several senior positions including Group Research Manager, VP Client Services and Executive VP with international research and advertising agencies. Now she is proud to have established a successful real estate business in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Jan is a member of the Business Advisory Council (BAC) of the SUNY New Paltz School of Business. She is also Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of Gateway to Entrepreneurial Tomorrows (GET), a non-profit dedicated to helping women and minorities start their own businesses. She is a past member of the board of several other agencies in the mid-Hudson region.
