"I've known Jan for several years and we've gone through a number of home purchase offers as well as selling my house recently. Her knowledge of the real estate geography of the area, the buying and selling process along with her integrity, kindness, thoroughness and frankly, doggedness made the experience of working with her a pleasant experience. I can site two specific instances where she made the difference in a potential purchasing and selling transaction. The first was when I was considering buying a property when there was sketchy information on the property's history. Rather than simply moving the process along, she insisted on finding out more detail related to the septic system, which in retrospect, though I didn't purchase the property, would have ended up costing me much more after the purchase.  She saved me tens of thousands of dollars in potential hidden costs thanks to her due-dilligence. The second was related to the recent sale of my home of 15 years. Her insistence on getting a third-party to measure the square footage of the home yielded a larger number than what was listed, and brought that fact to my attention, which yielded a better price (and an honest assessment) for the home. I would strongly recommend Janis's services to anyone interested in buying or selling a home and look forward to my next real estate engagement with her." - Kevin

"Janis is one of the best in the real estate business. She is hard working, honest, and result-oriented. I have dealt with many realtors, but unlike Janis. She thinks more about the client than herself and her commission. I strongly recommend Janis for your real estate needs, particularly, in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties". - Krishna

"Janis is outstanding in every way. She helped up find our dream home taking us to countless homes on the way and listening to our wishes and concerns. She was never pushy, had great knowledgeof the market, and was a wonderful partner in our decision making process. We couldn't have worked with a better agent and I highly recommend her to anyone. You'll be lucky to hire her!" - Marcia & ChiChao

Jan did an awesome job selling our house and helping us buy another! She was always upbeat, enthusiastic, well informed, and responsive to all of our questions and requests. She knew how to protect our interests every step of the way. We would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a great experience in buying or selling property. - Dodi and Jon

"Janis was professional and very organized. She treated my home as if it were hers. I trust her completely." - Terry

Jerry & Liddy: "Janis, now that we have completed the sale we want to thank you for all of your help. The first words that come to mind to describe you are quality, integrity, and professionalism. Even though you came highly recommended by someone I trust, I admit that I was apprehensive, with almost everyone telling me to be careful. In this tough economy with a difficult property to sell, I was warned not to get my hopes up, that real estate agents are the same, a certain one can't make that much of a difference. Wrong. Since working with you I find myself telling people - no you don't understand - I worked with this woman who is amazing. We had not sold a property in California for many years and had no idea how much work would be entailed. You were faced with what wasn't a standard property with many complexities - a very old home with two parcels etc. You hung in there, found our buyer and worked us through it all. The paperwork volume you had to deal with seemed endless. You never complained, never gave up, and were always encouraging. Janis - I was amazed how your caring and sweet manner contrasted with your tough, impressive negotiating abilities and understanding of the complex California law. You appear to have the knowledge of a lawyer, an advantage I guess of being the daughter of a lawyer. Your hobby as a photographer paid off as well - the photos you took showed our property in a light even I had never seen. Even after the sale - spending your own money to have someone put together this 6 inch thick book with copies of all of the papers involved with the sale - wow! If we know someone who is in your market, we won't have to think for a second before we would recommend you highly. As I think back on this experience, I am so grateful for your long distance "hand-holding" (California to New York) easing us through an emotionally and financially difficult experience. You made sure this all came out well. Thank you" - Sellers, Woodside, Ca.

"Janis is simply the BEST! Always there to answer questions. Returns emails and phone calls quickly. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of selling and buying property.

It was a pleasure to have her on our team. We would not hesitate to have her handle another property for us."

Testimonial

Janis was my realtor last year when we sold our home in Woodside.  She is fantastic.  I can't say enough about her.  She went way above and beyond to help us get our house ready to sell.  She helped us every step of the way with very valuable advice on what people look for, how to properly stage and clean, and what paperwork to pull together and have ready for the sellers.  She helped us when we needed with contacts for everything.  She did did thorough research for us to help us come up with a price.  Our area was a very complicated neighborhood to comp.  All of the homes are very different.  She helped us find contractors when needed, she even helped with a contact that cleaned the house on our last day there (cleaning is the last thing that you want to worry about when you are moving!).

Just today, 5 months after our sale, I was reminded of how great Janis was.  I am in the process of buying a vacation rental.  I had a list of questions for the realtor.  Her responses were, "I don't know.  I could ask.  Umm... I don't remember that about the house... it's cute though."  AMAZING difference between this realtor and Janis.  I would recommend Janis highly, especially in the very complicated real estate world of Woodside and Skyline area.  She knows all of the ins and outs, and if she doesn't, she is on it until she does!  I have bought and sold homes many times in the past.  Janis the best.
