There’s no place like home … and the Seacoast has been home to Janet since 1962 when her family built the house in North Hampton where she grew up. Yes, you might say she’s a “local” who knows the area! Janet is excited to bring her attention to details, her connections, and passion for helping others to help you reach your Real Estate goals, whether finding the right buyer for your home, or the right home for you! Janet’s background in hospitality and marketing in the Seacoast, has given her the opportunity to become very well connected with both the community and local businesses. Janet has extensive knowledge and experience in networking, having partnered with a national organization to open networking chapters in Northern New England to help local businesses reach their marketing goals through connections, referrals, and relationship marketing. She gained enormous respect from her peers and clients for her personal and professional approach to detail. Janet and her husband, Tom, bought the family house in 1996 and raised their three children there. They are now enjoying the next phase with five grandchildren! They enjoy kayaking, dining, and entertaining. Janet enjoys photography and walks on the beach, especially during low tides at sunrise! There’s no place like home!

Ask Janet Carroll


Janet Carroll is absolutely fantastic to work with, and I highly recommend her. Janet listens to what you want, and she’s very insightful at open houses. She is a strong communicator, pays attention to details, and is excellent at following up. I am very lucky to have Janet as my agent, and with her guidance I was able to purchase the perfect house for me.

'I recently listed and sold my house with Janet Carroll. I called the agency on a Tuesday and asked if the house could be listed & shown that weekend. Janet said yes, she would move on it, and I was impressed with her confidence. We were a team getting the house ready to show, she doing the comps, setting a listing price, taking pictures and all, and myself moving furniture, mowing the lawn, etc. Friday that week she did a preview showing for the neighborhood, with an open house house Saturday & Sunday. Monday she had three offers, one of them exceptional. The house was under agreement, and we closed Wednesday the following week. All done quickly and professionally. Janet was truly a gift - hard working, always offering advice and encouragement, it was as if I had a personal friend through what could have been a stressful time. I would recommend her to any one wanting to sell their house.'

'Janet was fantastic to work with when purchasing our home. She provided the expertise, dedication/availability, and personal touch we were looking for in a realtor to help guide us through this exciting but stressful time. She took the time to truly listen to our needs – she showed us a home, which wasn’t originally on our radar, that ended up being the absolute perfect home for our growing family. She was always available for any questions and was present for important milestones in the homebuying process. It is evident that she is well-connected to the community which really helped us: An issue came up during inspection which was not in her immediate expertise to advise on, and she quickly found the perfect person to answer our questions. She also provided high quality referrals when we were seeking quotes for initial home improvement projects. We are so happy with our home and thankful for everything Janet did to help make it a reality – she comes with our highest recommendation. She would be a great fit for someone looking for a personable and caring realtor who will listen and dedicate themselves to your vision, provide expertise in real estate, and utilize their well-connected network in the Seacoast NH community.'

“There is no realtor we would rather work with in any market, but working with Janet in a particularly competitive market has kept us sane! Her positive attitude and relentless drive to find us the perfect home is unmatched. Her compassion and honesty bring peace of mind, especially for first time home buyers like us. Buying or selling, Janet will always be our number one choice.”
