Meet Janet Rygh!

Hi, everyone! My name is Janet, and I am the marketing director for Realty ONE Group Professionals. My husband Duane and I have been married for 23 years, and we have one son, Jalen. Our family moved to the Treasure Valley last fall after living in Utah for over a decade. Prior to moving, we visited the Boise area several times, taking trips to Idaho’s wine country and downtown Boise. After reading about all Idaho has to offer, we knew we wanted to move here. I originally entered the real estate field in 2005 when our family returned to the States after living in South Korea for three years. A real estate team hired me as their administrative assistant and transaction coordinator. It was there I discovered how much I enjoy real estate and designing marketing material. When the real estate market crashed, the fallout led to me being let go. I obtained my degree, the real estate market was still recovering, so I focused on freelance design work and bolstered my creative spirit by starting a home-based business creating custom painted artwork. Like my grandpa, dad, and brother, painting is in my blood, but like my grandma, baking is in my heart. I love baking and experimenting with techniques and flavor combinations. Just ask my co-workers and agents in the office — I’m always bringing in some baked creation. My husband retired from the Air Force after a 20- year career, and shortly thereafter, I was offered a position with one of the nation’s largest REO asset management companies, located in Salt Suddenly jobless, I made the decision to go back to school to pursue a graphic arts degree. When

Lake City. There, I worked with real estate agents across the county. I worked on property listings and recruiting, and I helped organize the annual Real Estate Symposium. When we decided to move to Idaho, my friend Denise, who is a REALTOR® in Illinois, reached out to Joel on the exact same day he decided it was time to add another team member. It was clearly meant to be!

What I love most about my job at Realty ONE Group Professionals is the people. We have an amazing team here, and it continues to grow, which is exciting because I love building and fostering relationships. Joel and Julie are fantastic to work for, and I enjoy collaborating with them. I was pulled in by their energy, positivity, and genuineness — the main reason I accepted the position. I am also incredibly thankful that my position allows me to be creative. As long as I am busy and able to use my creative skill set, I will always be happy.

When I am not working (or baking), I am planning the next adventure for my family. It is exhilarating to explore new cities and cultures, so my family is always ready for new travel escapades. One of our favorite places is the Oregon coast. We love it so much that we could live there (don’t tell Joel). We are planning a trip this fall to hunt for hidden blown-glass floats along the beach in Lincoln City during their Finders Keepers event. I can’t wait. My husband won’t even know about the trip until he reads this — ha!

I hope you have a ONEderful Mother’s Day and Memorial Day weekend. We look forward to seeing you soon — if you’re lucky, it will be on a day I have blessed the office with baked goods!
