    Jani Effres brings her passion for real estate to Biafora Real Estate. A licensed real estate agent since 1984, Jani has seen the many trends and fluctuating cycles in the real estate industry. Graduating from UCLA with a B.A. in political science, she realized that "real estate is where it's at." Instead of going to law school as planned, she decided to sell houses to all the professionals she knew. The satisfaction of finding people their dream home has been very rewarding. Jani has a teaching credential in secondary education and applauds dedicated teachers everywhere. It is her desire to find all hard working individuals a place to be proud of and call home. Jani enjoys her association with Ruth Biafora, the broker/owner of the office. There is no comparison to the quality time and attention an
    agent receives in a smaller broker owned office with almost 25 years of working with sellers and buyers, along with a top notch mortgage division.
    Jani specializes in finding the right home for the right price. Assisting in the transformation of a property-- for the buyer or seller--from "ugly duckling to beautiful swan" is her forte. Design and staging consultation is available upon request.

    Coming from a blue collar background, from working as a Ironworker & construction worker building people's homes, I found my passion for real estate. I wanted to introduce people to their dream home.
    I've been a real estate agent since 2005. I started working from my family- owned real estate office, and that's how we treated all of our clients... like familia (family). Due to the financial crisis that our country was and is still going through, we had to close. Its like Albert Einstein said, " in the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity." That's where I found Biafora Real Estate.. my opportunity. Now I'm here to find my clients their opportunity.
    I pride myself in the service and attention I give to everyone of my clients. No task is too small or too big. There is no obstacle I wont go through to help purchase or sell my clients' property. So whether they are ready to purchase/sell their first home or their home on the hills, I'm here to provide them with great service.(fluent in English & Spanish)
