Jan has channeled her experience and education to provide various services to her community.  In 2004, Jan retired from the corporate world and established Garden Park, Inc. (www.mygardenpark.com), to be a community services organization that would provide real estate, finance-related and other neighborhood resources for the northwest Orange County area where she lives, Garden Park (West Garden Grove), and its surrounding communities (the "Garden Park Communities").


Garden Park Realty (www.gardenparkrealty.com) is the premier full-service real estate website serving the Garden Park Communities.


Garden Park Referrals (www.gardenparkreferrals.com) was set up in acknowledgment of the fact that along with real estate ownership, comes the cost of maintenance, and the difficulty of finding reliable service providers.  This site allows neighbors to refer great service providers, e.g., accountant, gardener, dentist, and so on.  There are a lot of talented people within our Communities and this website allows us to "flex our neighbor power" and promote our mutual services.
