About Me

Jan Makela

It has been my pleasure to help Experienced and First-Time Buyers and Sellers in Rappahannock and surrounding counties since 2006!

My Specialties include: Assisting Buyers and Sellers, Teaching and Consulting


As a native of Rappahannock County, I know the landscape well. My knowledge of the area has been valuable to me in this profession, allowing me to share its many secrets and special features. As a "local" - born and raised, I am fortunate to have numerous contacts in Rappahannock, many of whom have given me the opportunity to list and market a variety of unique and special properties, …residential, as well as land parcels.


Prior to my life as a Realtor, I have been a teacher, and retailer – running my family’s century-old store with my husband. Both experiences have helped me enormously in this profession. We have strong ties to the Non-Profit community here, as well. As a Board Member of Businesses of Rappahannock, I am committed to all of our local businesses, but especially the sustainable farming movement, and will help you locate and navigate the many farms, wineries, restaurants and orchards in the area. 


Rappahannock County offers spectacular views, cider, mead, organic farms, performing arts, sustainable farming, whiskey, wine, visual arts, grass-fed beef, world class restaurants, hiking, beer, antiquing, access to Shenandoah National Park and more!

Please let me introduce you to this incredible place!
