House Calls


"Janus and Michael's keen eye and advice increased the selling price of our home by close to seven figures. I wish I'd had them
assess our home years ago so I could have enjoyed the fruits of their wisdom. Next house for sure!"
–Debrah Farentino and Gregory Hoblit


Though Manheim and Cercone's priority is developing for Jaman Properties, they are available on a limited basis to consult with private clients on the following:

Purchasing a Property: This process can include, but is not limited to evaluating the property, advising on purchase strategy including price, terms and advising on best-and-highest use. This entails on-site visits, access to the Jaman professional team of architects, engineers, inspectors, realtors and contractors and, most important, access to the Jaman Property proprietary "Purchase and Development Questionnaire".

What to expect: Time, money, heartache -- the risks and rewards of ground up construction or renovation.

Design and construction: Manheim and Cercone do not oversee design or construction for others but can help chart an aesthetic course and make introductions to their network of professionals.

–Ricky Jay, Chrisann Verges and Abraham Lincoln RIP


Furnishing: Though Cercone and Manheim only design interiors for Jaman projects, they are available to consult on furnishing conceptualization, placement and source referrals

Sale of a property: Cercone and Manheim are available to consult on the sale of a private client’s residential property. This process can include but is not limited to assessing saleability, advising on outgoing price, marketing strategy, staging referrals, repairs or upgrades, contractor and realtor referrals and providing the seller with Jaman’s proprietary “Sellers’ To Do List”.
