After earning an environmental engineering degree from Penn State and working for two multi-national corporations, Jan Castner discovered his own formula for success when he entered the world of real estate in 1982.
His commercial and industrial real estate clients gain the most value in this equation, which synthesizes Jan’s environmental expertise and finely tuned analytical skills with three decades of broad, in-the-trenches sales and marketing experience. As Vice-President, Jan has spent the past quarter-century as an integral partner with RSR REALTORS, providing exceptional relationship-based buyer-tenant and seller-landlord representation in a market area that spans nearly all of the commonwealth’s 67 counties.
A proven problem-solver with a wide Pennsylvania footprint, Jan has acquired special expertise in locations in Altoona, Allentown, Erie, Lewistown, Johnstown, Carlisle, State College and Harrisburg. His engineering background informs his top-notch research and analysis in asset performance for acquisition, modification, liquidation and marketing properties. Jan is skilled at finding just the right property for his institutional and public and private sector clients.
Jan factors in not only data-driven skills, but people smarts. The proof is in the millions of dollars of real estate transactions he has engineered over the years. A trusted consultant to clients on land development, cost-to-cure analyses, due diligence studies, site locations, and commercial and industrial market analyses, he has landed upon the ideal solution for banks, restaurants, human service providers, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and an array of other valued clients.
For a businessman who knows the importance of a good offense, Jan is also a master of self-defense. A sixth-degree blackbelt in karate, Jan volunteers in the community to teach self-defense classes to women and children. The Marysville resident also loves hunting, fishing and boating.
Whether facing the challenge of a karate opponent or a slowly recovering housing market, Jan has earned and kept the confidence of his clients and guided complex transactions from inception to completion. He is a member of the local, state and national associations of Realtors, and is proud to have his daughter-in-law, Charity, working with him as an RSR agent.
