Testimonials

Janet is an outstanding realtor and we were very happy to work with her. Highly recommended. We used her both to buy and sell our Ann Arbor home and in both transactions she excelled.

Janet was a joy to work with! She went above and beyond in every way. We had a difficult listing, but she was able to smoothly negotiate a sale for us. I would use her again and recommend her to all of my friends and family.

Janet helped us as part of a relocation move related to work. We couldn't ask for a better person to help us in such a difficult transition. Janet was always available, very aware of our needs and went beyond expectations to find us the right place. A couple of months after, I can say that we got the best possible place at a great price. On top of that, Janet always showed professionalism, a great human touch to manage this kind of decisions and a deep knowledge of the area.

Janet is a great communicator, very thorough and always had my best interest at heart. She was a wonderful realtor and we will use her again in the future! Thanks.

Janet knows what it takes to sell your home! We listened to and followed all of her advice and it resulted in more than one offer in under two weeks! We loved that she was always accessible and kept us informed at all times. She's also very familiar with the area, which is a plus in a realtor. I would not hesitate to recommend Janet to anyone buying or selling a home....she's great at what she does!

Janet was in control every step of the way with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. I felt very comfortable letting Janet handle all aspects of the purchase/sale. As expected, she proved to know her stuff and we couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Janet to represent you in your next purchase or sale.

Janet is an outstanding realtor and person. She helped us to buy our current house and sell an old one. We got to know Janet few years back, when we were searching for an empty lot or house. She was very helpful, engaging, and flexible as we have very busy work schedule. Together we did an extensive search, with multiple visit to numerous properties, including houses and empty plots. One of the plots we liked and she helped to organize (while we were at work) land survey and perk test. Turns out there was a legal issues connected to that plot and we decided not to purchase it, and I am very pleased that we did not. After all of that we decided that we should wait for few more years as it was too expensive for us. Janet did not say a word! She was so naturally pleasant and professional! I told her that when we are ready to buy a house, we will get in touch. We did, more then 2 years later. She already deleted my phone from her address book as she thought it was just a courtesy promise. It was not! We even did not consider anyone but get in touch directly with her once time was right. Once again, she was above board. Helpful, on time, prompt in response. ALWAYS defending her customer interest! She is FABULOUS; Simply the Best! I would recommend to any of my best friends without any hesitation.

Janet sold me two homes totaling $900k in 2016, and she sold a $350k investment property for me in 2014. Janet is super fun to work with, but more importantly she is an agent who puts her clients first, and although she doesn't market herself this way -- she has all the characteristics of the quintessential buyer's agent. She has a deep understanding of the market, is intellectually curious and finds answers to specific questions, and raises questions of her own - questions that might not occur to the client, based on her vast experience. Janet is also very patient, a very good active listener, and very diligent about responding, following up, and ultimately closing issues with clarity and transparency. Lastly, Janet does a very good job at thoughtfully developing a negotiating strategy -- and giving you sensible feedback on your negotiating strategy. With any luck we'll buy another $1m in investment real estate from Janet in 2017!

Janet was wonderful to work with. I met her 3 years ago and she helped me place an offer on a home and it wasn't accepted by the seller. I put my house purchasing plans on hold for 3 years. I finally found the perfect home on the water and remembered how fantastic Janet treated me during our last interaction. I reached out to her again and she helped my purchase the house of my dreams. Janet is trustworthy, knowledgeable, passionate, efficient, empathetic and truly has the buyer in mind. Janet even helped me secure financing and that was also a fantastic experience. Home buying is a daunting process, but Janet has a special gift of calming her clients and explain the purchasing process from start to finish. She was even kind enough to text me when she had updates. I would recommend Janet to my family, friends and colleagues! If you are looking to find a realtor in the near future you cannot go wrong with selecting Janet as your realtor. She is truly remarkable!!Janet was wonderful to work with.

Janet was very attentive, dedicated and available. She went above and beyond to help us sell our home. She had great suggestions to improve our homes appearance w/out spending too much. In the end she negotiated the best deal for the sale of our home.

Janet, is amazing...extremely knowledgeable about the market. Great negotiator and a very polite and friendly person. You will like doing business with her the second you meet. I have bought/sold and recommended Janet 4 times...and each transaction turned out better then expected.

Janet was very helpful to us in selling our farm with 2 houses, barn and out buildings. Our farm was very complicated and challenging to sell because it has a Conservation Easement on it, the houses and buildings are part of a Washtenaw County Historic District and one house is designated a State of Michigan Historic House. Janet took the initiative to become informed about the restrictions involved with these designations and was able to successfully market the positive attributes of our property to a very limited number of potential buyers. She was very persistent in keeping the successful buyers engaged to get it all 'across the finish line' in a reasonable time frame. We very much appreciated her personal touch in keeping us 3 remote buyers involved as the whole process evolved. She exhibited a huge amount of enthusiasm and persistence for the challenge. I would highly recommend her talents to anyone selling property in southeast Michigan.

I have had the pleasure to work with Janet in both new home construction and residential resale. She is extremely knowledgeable about home sales and works diligently to understand her buyers wants and and needs, as well as understands market and value when it comes to her sellers. I would recommend Janet for both selling or buying a home. She moves quickly and goes above and beyond to make the process, transaction and the end result the very best experience.

I have several pieces of property that I was not able to sell until I signed with Janet. She sold 2 of my lots very quickly. She works with a great team and I could not be happier with the professionalism.

I worked with Janet to buy a weekend house. It was most positive and satisfying experience. She is pleasant, professional, flexible as far as your schedule and your market interest change through the process. She is very patient with the clients from both sides. Very important, she is going through with her promises and does not drop it in a middle of the process. I would highly recommend her to the buyers and will use her service in the future, if needed.

When Janet was our buyers' agent in Ann Arbor, she did what we thought was impossible; Janet helped us get our dream home after having made ONE offer, on one house, under asking price, and with more seller concessions after the inspection. All of that was in Ann Arbor. Wow! Thank you Janet. I doubt you will find a more responsive agent (or a more responsive professional in any field for that matter). On this point, Janet is amazing. When we contacted during work hours (before 10 PM or after 8 AM) the longest we went without receiving a text, phone call, or email response was 30 min. That is not an exaggeration. I am confident that her commitment to quick response times was the key factor for getting us into our home. We have so many wonderful things to say about Janet. Her background in building and construction provided helpful knowledge. Her flexibility allowed us to creatively use our skills as buyers. Her close knowledge of the mortgage process helped anticipate and avoid roadblocks in the financing process. But looking back, the thing I appreciated most was her sense of humor. The process of buying a home is incredibly stressful. Now, imagine going through that process the week after Christmas during blizzards, federal holidays, and communicating with sellers who live on another continent. That was our experience. We looked at houses the week before Christmas, put in an offer on Christmas Eve, started the financing process shortly thereafter, and closed February 3. Through it all, Janet used humor and optimism to keep us going. We are so glad that the commission money from our home purchase went to this individual. Not only is she a wonderful woman of high character, she WORKS for her part of that the commission. As a result of Janet's responsiveness, enthusiasm, and excellent working relationship with lenders, we were able to quickly get into the home of our dreams. I'm sure she'll do the same for you.
