Janice Livshits & Jill Barbera Named Philadelphia Real Estate Agents of the Month

PHILADELPHIA (May 26, 2016) – Real Estate Agent Magazine Philadelphia is pleased to announce that Janice Livshits & Jill Barbera were named Real Estate Agents of the Month for May 2016.

Janice Livshits and Jill Barbera, leaders of The Livshits/Barbera team of EveryHome REALTORS®, are an award-winning, trendsetting duo that are shaping the model for others in the real estate industry. Newly formed in 2015, the two women describe their team of five as a grassroots effort, a win-win model.

The duo met a decade ago through EveryHome REALTORS®, whom each took a very different path to real estate.

Livshits, raised in Northeast Philadelphia, left a career in finance and a steady paycheck after the birth of her daughter, Grace. The owner of EveryHome, Katie, was friends with Livshits.

“I had been helping out in her office and one day she said, ‘Why don’t you just go out and get a real estate license.’ I never looked back. Within eight months, I was onboard full-time. I became one of the top agents. I love my clients and I love what I do,” Livshits explained.

Around the same time, newly married Barbera was feeling burned out from a decade-long demanding culinary career working 13 hour days. Slowly moving her way up the culinary ladder, she was managing upward of 25 employees and a far cry from living her culinary passion. Seeking a steadier work-life balance, Barbera decided to enroll in real estate classes.

Shortly after acquiring her license, she and her husband, Vince, put their starter home in Conshohocken on the market. Interestingly, Barbera’s first sale was her own home; she liked the feeling of accomplishment from closing that deal. Eventually, Barbera ended up at EveryHome.

“In 2006, we were two of only four agents at EveryHome,” recalled Barbera. “Today, EveryHome has 54 agents.” A friendship flourished between Livshits and Barbera; they shared insights and tools of the trade. Their management styles were admittedly different. Livshits is highly analytical, while Barbera is more instinctual. Yet both are driven and committed to integrity, patience and the seriousness of helping clients purchase a home.
