As a full-time, full-on Realtor since the inception of The Venturi Team, Jane has a genuine passion for helping you find an awesome home ! She listens carefully to your needs, wants and wishes, truly taking on your home search as if it were her own. Jane ‘has your back’ and knows what she is doing.
Whether you are an experienced home buyer searching for your dream home, or a first-time home buyer, looking for the perfect retirement nest, PCS’ing with the military, relocating from across the country or world, as her clients say “you would be fortunate to have Jane’s knowledge and tenacity advocating for you.” Few realtors have attained her depth of experience or possess her listening skills, wisdom, patience as well as her negotiating and ‘challenge’ solving skills.
Prior to becoming a REALTOR®, Jane served for many years as a Youth Pastor and a Worship Director. Jane also spent several years working with Fortune 500 companies as a Travel Program Manager, coordinating travel and managing tours that took her throughout the U.S. and World. Yet Jane loves the land, having lived for many years taming a 70 acre farm where she raised a variety of crops and animals from horses to cattle to chickens… and kids! Speaking of which, Jane has 4 adult children and had the opportunity to school them all. The family has further expanded to include a wonderful son-in-law and 3 grandchildren.
Jane is an accomplished musician and singer, and has recorded 3 CDs; in her precious free time she can be spotted riding one of her two horses in the Bosque humming a tune ! Now doesn’t that sound like a Western Musical ! 🙂
In Tracy Venturi’s words – “Jane is an integral part of The Venturi Team and together we give our clients a combination of experience, market knowledge, negotiation skills and a total commitment to professionalism”
What Jane’s Clients Are Saying
Jane also sold our old home. She helped us determine the asking price and gave us great advice for selling. FYI - we did have the house staged, by Jane's team. It was totally worth the cost. We ended up getting quite a bit above asking price.
Go with Jane, and her team! You will NOT regret it! read less
Jane was able to find us many homes to choose from that were all within our price range that suited our every need. We found the perfect home! read less
Her knowledge of the Albuquerque area and willingness to show us homes in ANY area we were interested in no matter how far away was awesome! She quickly narrowed down our wants and needs list and within a two week period we had found a home!
Once our bid was accepted, Jane gave us great advice with regards to the inspections she felt were 'must have's' and those that were 'good insurance' and it sure was worth every penny for the ones we asked for, as a major issue was discovered that we ultimately asked the seller to fix before the closing and they did!
Jane was responsive by text, email and phone to any questions or concerns we had and promptly responded.
She also took care of some of the tasks we had on our list while we were out of state and kept us informed as these tasks were completed. She worked closely with the other agent, but we always knew she had our best interests in mind no matter what issue we were dealing with.
Had it not been for her calm demeanor and knowledge of the market, we would not have been as confident that things were going to close on time!
We were NOT disappointed with Jane and the service we received all along the way! Another added bonus, the staff at Venturi Realty was always available to coordinate inspections and give us status as well.
We would highly recommend Jane Elizabeth to anyone looking to purchase a home and will use her again if we purchase another home down the road! read less
The four homes that we looked at first were almost right. I knew that I could make two of them work, but I didn't want to make anything work. I wanted to fall in love with MY house.
Jane tactfully asked us questions that helped her figure out what we were looking for in addition to the specifics I had emailed her earlier. After a quick lunch: Bingo...the house she showed us next was everything we wanted and more.
Jane's amazing ability to find buyers the right house is, I think, due to her vast knowledge of the market and her ability to help clients articulate their dreams.
Thanks, Jane. read less

naifs for the area. Jane took us under her wing, was infinitely patient, and in the end, we wound up in a wonderful house. Withou Jane it would have been a harrowing search, and who knows if it would have ended as well?
Let me also acknowledge the help provided along the way by Tracy, Jamie, and others on the team who so ably supported Jane’s efforts.
We are so glad we met you! read less
We were moving from Austin and had only a few days to look at houses in the Albuquerque area. In the weeks leading up to our trip, we had a very long phone conversation with Jane about our needs and fine-tuned things via email. When we got there, Jane had our route planned out so all we needed to do was hop in the car and go. She even brought snacks! Her knowledge of the area was really impressive, and she was friendly and responsive to our concerns and questions. By the time we walked through the door of our dream house, she knew almost before we did that this was the one for us! She walked us through all the paperwork of our offer and made smart recommendations that turned out to be invaluable (trust her on her choice of septic inspector, believe me).
Once the offer was on the table, Jane's assistant, Maggie, was an absolute jewel. She made sure we were aware of every deadline, inspection, and paperwork request. It wasn't the smoothest closing, but Jane and Maggie both checked in with us to make sure we were hanging in there. We weren't able to make it back for the final walkthrough, so Jane did that for us and conferenced us in on FaceTime so we could see everything.
Buying a house can be stressful, especially when you don't live in the area. We had a thoroughly great experience thanks to Jane and Maggie! read less

She represented us in the purchase of a new home in the Albuquerque area during our relocation from Massachusetts. She was very supportive throughout the entire process, her professional skills were impressive and she supported by her team always managed to do whatever needed to be done with thoughtfulness, joy and care.
We would recommend her as she was recommended to us. read less
Our agent, Jane, and the Venturi Team members, worked with my wife and I throughout the entire process beginning with identifying homes that fit our search criteria, arranging multiple showings, answering questions and assisting with financing related issues, procuring a home inspector, negotiating the final purchase price and contractual provisions, and being present at the closing.
Our agent maintained regular communications via phone and email and quickly answered our questions and concerns.
We felt confident throughout the process that we had chosen a professional real estate agent and also a person who was genuinely honest, straightforward and working in our best interest at all times. She earned our confidence along with her entire team of professionals.
We would definitely work with her and the Venturi Team again and would not hesitate to recommend them to our friends or anyone interested in buying or selling a home. read less
On the first day, we were able to reduce our selections from 20 houses to 12, and to pick the areas which most interested us: Rio Rancho, Northeast, and Four Hills. The next day, Jane drove us around to virtually all of the properties (one was going up for auction the next day, and we decided another really didn't interest us that much). She was very friendly, very informative, and very professional. I was particularly impressed with her very honest character.
That evening, we made our first three choices in order, and transmitted those choices to Jane, with our bidding strategy for each. Our first bid on our first choice was accepted by the seller.
When we returned to Ohio, Jane had a home inspection set up for us. There were a few issues which required further negotiation, and with which Jane assisted us. Suffice to say, we and the seller reached amicable agreement. In our estimation, Jane's efforts saved us several thousand dollars in costs we would have incurred, had she not represented us.
Jane also assisted us in finding financing, and took good care of us through the closing, and beyond.
I have no compunction whatsoever in recommending the Venturi team, and Jane Elizabeth. I feel fortunate to have "discovered" them. read less
