Featured Testimonial

“As first time home buyers and expectant parents last Fall, my husband and I could have been easily discouraged by the lack of homes on the market in the area and the amount of work it takes to find, vet, negotiate and learn the ropes of home buying. Janis walked us through each step, helping us to narrow down our search area to communities that were right for us, and eventually led us to purchase a home that we love. She served as a sounding board for our thoughts, ideas, questions and concerns throughout the process. Janis did all of the leg work; looking into permits, negotiating on our behalf, and setting up meetings. Janis was and continues to be a wonderful resource for references for contractors for home improvements as well. Most importantly, Janis is a great communicator – she is clear, timely, efficient and thorough. This is what makes her a wonderful agent to work with.”
