Congratulations Janet on your newest achievement as the Honorary President of Better Homes and Gardens Mason- McDuffie Real Estate. It was my pleasure to have known and to have worked with you and to have appreciated your professionalism during my 33 years as a real estate professional in Pleasanton. My best to you and to your great husband Joe and the rest of your family too. I have now been retired from real estate just over 3 years and have found it easy to look back on my great career as well and to have now accepted the role of a retired Realtor.
