Janie Aracil Headshot

294 Valley Rd, Unit 2
Middletown, RI, 02842

If there's a real estate transaction in your future, understanding today's market is a must - especially these days with low inventory and the need for decisive action. With 17 years in banking and finance, I've learned a thing or two about when to move, when to walk away and how to make a good deal. This financial know how and 20 years in real estate helps my clients move from concept, to contract, to close faster and with less stress.

In addition to maintaining an active book of sales and listings over the years, I have also managed a top local real estate agency where I trained some of the best agents in the biz to negotiate better, market more effectively and avoid costly mistakes.  Accelerated learning curve, you ask? Absolutely, and the things I've learned is what sets me apart.

Whether you're looking for seller or buyer representation, I would welcome the opportunity to get to know you, understand your goals and help you execute your plan. (Hablo espanol tambien!) 



“It was fantastic working with Janie. She was able to work closely with many brokers to be able to show us a wide range of properties. Once we had decided on a property, she anticipated every problem and went out of her way to find solutions to them. She reached out to all the town officials that were required for permissions. Janie knows all the local regulations and kept us fully informed about all possible problems.

Janie also built an excellent relationship with the seller's broker. After the sale, Janie has made an extra effort to help us get settled in our new house!”

“Janie Aracil went above and beyond helping us buy this house. Not only did she help us make an offer on short notice, but she also sorted out the complicated solar panel issue, helped with multiple negotiations, was readily accessible, and generally provided excellent advice/coaching throughout the process. We couldn't be happier.”

“She's absolutely wonderful to work with and I'm glad a relative recommended her to me!

On the buying end, she was careful to meet my needs and some major wants and keep it neatly in my price range. Case in point: the property I bought in Barrington three-ish years ago was exactly what I was looking for at the right price, in a lovely and quiet neighborhood with access to a river for a kayak and no HOAs to beg permission to put in a flower box around my own mailbox. The most important part was that she was the real-estate guru who had the patience to lead me through the process of buying as a first-time home buyer.

On the selling end of the process, she is a dogged advocate and works very hard to make the best deal for all parties involved. I was floored at how easy she made the process feel when I had to work a night shift and had to handle much of the process after regular business hours. That kind of flexibility is no small thing! Just as she was the patient guru to lead me patiently through the buying process, she was the same in the selling end as well.

She has been absolutely AMAZING!! 10/10, would call again to buy another property with her services!”

“We have worked with Janie on a number of transactions and have always been extremely satisfied. She has understood what we are looking for in regards to our investment strategy and brought us interesting properties and opportunities that we may have not otherwise found or thought of. She was also diligent and hard working when marketing and selling properties for us. I would certainly recommend Janie Aracil to future buyers and sellers.”

“I knew Janie Aracil years ago when I was living on Martha's Vineyard. I moved to Middletown, Rhode Island to live with my daughter after a fall resulting in a fractured hip. A few months ago I decided to look for a home of my own, I called Janie, since I knew she had moved to Rhode Island years ago, and was familiar with the area of which I was planning to start my search.

I am a retired Licensed Real Estate Broker from Massachusetts and I know how important it is to retain a good Agent when looking for property. For that reason I contacted Janie. I gave her a list of all my priorities, and there were many; style of house, neighborhood, condition, noting that I'm a senior citizen with limited physical capabilities. She was very diligent in her choices of properties for me to see, saving me time and the inconvenience of looking at homes that had 'possibilities'. to fit my needs or requiring some changes or repairs, thereby incurring additional expense. She was aware that I wanted to be close to my family in Middletown yet, in an area I would enjoy becoming a part of that community.

When Janie showed me the property at 54 Ford Farm Rd. she was able to make me realize the arrangement of the interior would be ideal for me in my circumstances.

The negotiating process was 'painless' since the property value was obvious. She handled the few adjustments to the house by the seller that had to be corrected (from the home inspection report) quickly and efficiently so that it would not hinder our closing date. The closing of the property was one of the smoothest I have experienced in all my years as a Real Estate Broker.

Janie answered all my questions, small details about the property I may have overlooked, information about the community and advised me as to what service people were dependable. On moving day, with 10 family and friends assisting me she supplied lunch with several pizzas and cold drinks which were so appreciated by the hungry crew. I'd say that was above and beyond!! They send their thanks!

I feel Hogan Associates is so fortunate to have Janie Aracil on their staff,. She is totally committed to her clients. I would recommend Janie to anyone I know who is looking for that special home here in Rhode Island. Thank You, Janie.”

“We came into the process not knowing much because this was our first time. Finding your first home can be intimidating at times , but Janie walked us through every process and made sure that we understood what the next step was. My wife and I were very please and will definitely use Janie's services again.

Michael Bradley, Pawtucket  5th Jul 2018


“I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service you provided on the process of buying my home. Your attention to detail, great communication skills, and ready smile made the experience even better than I expected.

I won't hesitate to bring future clients to you. Thank you for the hard work and your great customer service.”
