Over the years, I have bought and sold numerous properties. Across all of these transactions Janet is far and away the BEST Realtor I have ever worked with. The amount of effort she put into the market analysis was astonishing. So was her marketing plan -- the most thorough I've ever seen. She brought in a great photographer and got the word out through multiple channels. Once a buyer was secured, the process was seamless with Janet taking care of all the "behind the scenes" details efficiently and with minimal involvement from me. Moreover, her demeanor is consistently optimistic, friendly and professional. I really enjoyed spending time with her. If I were staying in this area, and either buying or selling, I would never work with anyone but Janet again.
While I have never used her as real estate agent (I have a real estate agent in the family) we have had many talks about real estate and her philosophy. Her philosophy is always be honest and put your client first. She would say there is no other way. As a person and a friend, she is caring, light hearted, fun, smart, open minded, a good listener, optimistic, and flexible. I’m sure these qualities have also contributed to making her the successful real estate agent she is.
Janet is a premiere real estate agent whom I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with for over 16 years. I met Janet in 2003 when searching for a property in Shamong, New Jersey. I called on one of her exclusive listings but found the price too high. Janet listened carefully as I explained our new home wish list, and within days, she called me back describing what she thought might be the perfect home for our family. We toured the property and she was absolutely right! We immediately put in an offer and closed one month later. Janet walked us through the purchase process every step of the way! She was on top of every detail, prompting others when needed to keep us on track for a smooth and timely closing. Her professionalism, attention to detail and her warm personality were an absolute pleasure! Since our 2003 closing, Janet marketed and leased out our former home, a condominium unit in nearby Mount Laurel, New Jersey. I found the rental market to be rough, but Janet paved the way with her expertise, giving me much needed peace of mind. She eventually handled the sale of that condo for me, guiding me on small improvements needed to successfully market my property. In the end, she sold my condo at a great price! Last year, we decided to move to the Eastern Shore in Maryland. Janet brainstormed with me on how to best market my beloved Shamong property. She recommended minor improvements which we completed, and she helped me stage my house beautifully. After she had professional photographs taken, she created a wonderful selling brochure and my listing went up. She hosted an open house that first Sunday and by Sunday night, I had two offers, one over asking price! Needless to say, we were thrilled, as were the buyers! We closed within 45 days, again with Janet’s attentive assistance, walking us through every step of the selling process, crossing every T and dotting every i! Over the years, I have recommended Janet to friends and acquaintances looking to buy, sell or lease, knowing she is the top of the realtor crop! Everyone who has an opportunity to work with Janet gets it! I am grateful to have benefited multiple times from her expertise and her kindness. She is honestly the best realtor I have ever known!
As a retired New Jersey Realtor myself and presently a licensed North Carolina referral agent, I hired Janet to sell our family homestead and referred family and friends to her over the years. Janet is energetic, a hard worker with honesty and integrity, an expert and leader in the real estate industry, and a skilled negotiator for her clients. Janet’s caring spirit and love for people is genuine, making her the perfect fit for a great real estate experience. I highly recommend Janet Brown! Debra Thompson
