Janet Case
CEO and Co-Founder
Janet lives and breathes the real estate industry. Before founding Proxio, Janet was CEO of two of the largest Associations of Realtors® in the U.S. –simultaneously–providing services to over 7500 agents in hundreds of brokerages; she also ran an online real estate forms company and participated in the governance of Silicon Valley's MLS. After buying a property in France in 2006, Janet realized the need for more transparency in markets without MLSs, and spent a year researching the needs and practices of foreign real estate agencies: the result is Proxio. Today Janet is a recognized speaker at industry conferences and real estate associations on the topic of internationalizing real estate practices and building professional referral networks. Janet previously held senior management roles in Fortune 500 companies Varian Associates and Tencor Instruments, where her responsibilities included international marketing for Europe, Asia and North and South America, and launching new products worldwide. Janet holds a BA in Economics from the University of Maine and an MBA from the Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
