Janice Ross Joins Salt Pond Realty
There’s a new face at Salt Pond Realty, LLP. Co-owners and founders Christine O’Leary and Cynthia Furtado are pleased to announce the addition of Janice Ross to their team.
Ms. Ross brings a unique perspective to her role. After a rewarding 25-year career in the automotive technology industry, she recently decided it was time to pursue a new passion. A lifelong resident of Canton, Ms. Ross and her husband purchased a seasonal property in Falmouth in 2005. Captivated by the scenic beauty and small-town charm, Falmouth soon became home away from home for their family, and they eventually decided to relocate in 2019.
Throughout her experience purchasing local investment properties, Ms. Ross discovered an affinity for real estate, when she initially became a client of Christine O’Leary at Salt Pond. They also shared a love of boating and all things Falmouth, forging a friendship immediately. Her segue into the real estate industry seemed like a natural progression, which she pursued with Ms. O’Leary’s encouragement and support.
“At Salt Pond Realty, we believe real estate involves so much more than a sales transaction; it’s an emotional experience,” Ms. O’Leary said. “Therefore, it’s all about the relationship, which is why Cynthia and I are thrilled to have Janice come on board. She has a dynamic personality, which complements her strong sales experience, so she was able to really hit the ground running.”
Located in historic Queen’s Buyway, at the north end of Falmouth Village, Salt Pond Realty, LLP is nestled among an array of independent, locally-owned and operated businesses. Ms. Ross joined the five-member team in March, equipped not only with business acumen and interpersonal skills, but also with the lens of a landlord and a second-home owner who decided to make the transition to full-time Cape Codder.
Ms. Furtado underscored the importance of a realtor being immersed not just in the inventory but the community itself.
“The Salt Pond Realty philosophy is formed upon the ideal that we’re not just selling houses, we’re selling the Cape Cod lifestyle,” she said. “It’s inherent to all of us on the team, for we live, work, shop, and volunteer here. We know firsthand what a special place Cape Cod is, which makes Janice the perfect fit.”
Ms. Ross takes pride not only in meeting but exceeding her clients’ expectations, which she has found to be an especially rewarding goal when it involves connecting clients to their dream homes. She is well-traveled and well-educated on Falmouth’s stunning waterways, from busy harbors to quiet coves, affording a unique perspective to further acquaint herself with the area. She is grateful for the opportunity to share her love of Falmouth with her clients.
“I feel very lucky to be a member of this community,” Ms. Ross said. “Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, our Main Street is bustling with local restaurants and shops, and we’re surrounded by natural beauty, from Waquoit Bay to Woods Hole Village, the Knob to Nobska Lighthouse. Falmouth really has it all.”
