My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Janice in the purchase of our first home and we could not be more impressed with her. Most importantly, it’s clear that she puts her client’s needs first as opposed to trying to get a quick deal and get paid. She worked with us for over 4 months, visited countless open houses with us, and remained patient, enthusiastic, and supportive through it all until we finally found our dream home. It certainly helped that she’s the type of person who we actually enjoyed spending time with. My normally shy two year old loved her too. I still remember how Janice would play hide and seek with her and entertain her while my wife and I looked through open houses. To us, that spoke volumes. From a professional aspect, she was teriffic. She was extremely knowledgeable about the various areas we were looking in and helped us to focus in on certain pockets, saving us a lot of time. When it came down to making an offer, she not only had a great feel for the market in general but also a feel for the seller and agent we were working with. I am confident that she helped us get the best value possible on our home. In fact, we’ve been in the house for less than a year, and a very similar house down the street just sold for $130K more than what we paid. Throughout the entire process, from initial offer to close of escrow, we always felt comfortable in knowing that she was on top of things. The home buying process can be extremely daunting but she walked us through it every step of the way. Lastly, she was always available and very responsive. It so happened that during the week of our closing, she was going to be on a philanthropic trip to Africa to help build homes – yes, apparently, she’s that kind of person too. Before leaving, she made sure everything was organized and in place and left us in good hands with her partner to ensure everything went smoothly. She even found the time to send a couple emails to check up on things while she was gone. I know this is a long review so in short, if you’re looking for a realtor who will put your needs first and get you an awesome deal, look no further.
