JaneEllen McLaughlin Saums    McEnearney Associates

There is no such thing as a “past” client. Even well after the transaction has closed, you can always rely on me for assistance. My goal is to provide every client with outstanding service and resources. I care deeply that you’re making a large financial and emotional decision when buying or selling a home, and I am here to support and guide you through every step.

Having relocated many times over the years (with a family and two cats!), I’m extremely sensitive to the joys and challenges of a life-changing move. A Jackson, Michigan native, I first settled in Northern Virginia in 1986. As a Foreign Service spouse, I also lived in Oman, the Netherlands, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. My residency in apartments, condos, townhomes and single-family homes has given me first-hand insight on the quality of life every property type provides.

In 2000, I moved back to Northern Virginia permanently.  I have developed an intimate knowledge of its diverse communities, and thanks to my teaching background I always educate my clients on the area’s market and housing options. I also explain the myriad of steps and decisions they will encounter in the real estate process; plus I know the right questions to ask and am a great listener. I am very detail-oriented, proactive, patient, and persistent in getting answers or solving problems. Plus, I’m adept at figuring out what people understand, and know how to explain what they don’t.

I am a member of Fairfax Master Naturalists, the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the National Wildlife Federation and the Nature Conservancy. I love the county, regional and national parks that are in our area, and believe they are some of Northern Virginia’s greatest assets. 

I received my B.A. from Ohio Wesleyan University in Zoology and my M.A. in Journalism from The Ohio State University. I have taught science for Fairfax County Public Schools for eight years working with at-risk students.  My two children grew up attending the County’s public schools, so I also have a parent’s perspective. 

I am very passionate about the environment and have earned the National Association of Realtors’ GREEN designation. I am active in my church, located in Vienna, Virginia, and love hiking and kayaking.  I also enjoy gardening, so much so that I have turned my small front lawn into a certified wildlife habitat!
