Jane Layton believes in the Golden Rule: “You treat other people like you want to be treated.”

Following this rule has undoubtedly helped Layton become a successful RE/MAX Gold Realtor. Since 1991 Layton has helped clients find their dream homes. She started with O’Bryon Real Estate, moved to ERA and 10 years ago joined RE/MAX Gold, focusing on the dynamic area between Folsom and Placerville.

“My favorite thing (about real estate) is the people,” Layton said. “It’s interesting work because you dive into people’s stories for a while when they’re in transition. It’s not, for me, about just looking for houses. It’s about doing the best possible job I can for buyers and sellers.

“I’ve been lucky over my career,” she continued. “I’ve worked with some really wonderful buyers and sellers … and a lot of great agents.”

Layton’s lucky career hit a high point when she was recently named the El Dorado County Association of Realtors’ Realtor Citizen of the Year.

“I was blown away,” Layton said when her husband Dan Layton and EDCAR officers presented the award. “I’m really honored to receive this award and humbled by it.”

The Laytons live in Cameron Park, where Jane sits on the Cameron Park Design Review Committee. She also volunteers at Faith Episcopal Church and with United Outreach, the group helping El Dorado County’s homeless.

These efforts on top of her busy work schedule made Jane an ideal candidate for EDCAR’s award.

When she’s not helping buyers and sellers or giving back to her community, Jane and Dan enjoy outdoor activities — hiking and backpacking — here at home and abroad. They’ve trekked all over Ireland and the Himalayas. “And I do yoga to center myself. This is a stressful business,” Jane said.

Jane also keeps up with her two daughters — Jenna, 25, who currently lives in Sitka, Alaska, and Danielle, 24, who lives in Portland, Maine. Though they’re far away, Jane said her daughters (and that great hubby of 28 years) really support her in everything she does … making her feel pretty lucky at home and on the job.
