More About Me

I Love What I Do...and It Shows!

Ever since I can remember, I've loved everything to do with hearth and home! Gardens, architecture, cooking, the fun little differences between neighborhoods - I love it all! It's no wonder that I chose to make my career in real estate. And with a long history of giving "notch above" service to my clients, being an agent with Windermere is the perfect place for me to practice my craft...helping YOU achieve your real estate goals. Nothing is more fun for me than seeing that "a-HA" moment on a person's face when they take their first step into what will soon be their new home. It's the same when you decide it's time to sell your home. Finding those aspects of your home that will put it head and shoulders above the it just right to bring in the highest offers...I thrive on that! Helping those dreams come true for you is the best possible way I know to spend my time.

My Process

Windermere has given me the tools, knowledge, and ethics to do the best job for you to make your real estate dreams a reality. We're the only real estate company around that has a Standards of Practice Committee. As a member of this committee, I strive to bring the highest level of service to my clients every day. 

Every client and every real estate transaction is different. My process is solid, yet fluid enough to meet any challenge that pops up during a home purchase or sale, and to make sure every client is comfortable from start to finish. 

SELLING YOUR HOME? I recommend taking care of the inspection and sewer scope before we go on the market. That ensures no surprises for you (and me), and allows buyers the option of making their offers with no inspection contingencies. That saves time and makes for a smoother transaction. I also recommend a couple other items get taken care of before we go live, as well, for the same reasons. But, we can talk more about those when you're ready to talk about listing your home.

BUYING A HOME? It isn't always the highest price that wins the day. You and I can sit down and put together a strategy that works best for you, when you're ready to make that Big Step. I have a lot of great ideas for buyers that will help get you into that home you've always wanted!

My Background

My real estate background is diverse and lengthy. I've been providing excellent real estate service to both buyers and sellers in the Seattle area for many years. But, my past experience also includes coordinating transactions, managing properties, working with families dealing with estates and other emotional issues, negotiating with government entities on eminent domain processes, and the like. This 'jack of all trades' background serves me well as a Windermere agent. You can be assured that together, we will be able to easily handle anything that might come up during your real estate adventure.

My Promise To You

When you make the decision to work with me, you'll get the very best agent you can find. From the first time we meet, I'll really listen to what you say so I can determine how best to help YOU accomplish your goals. Regardless of whether you're buying a new home or selling your existing home, you can be confident that I'll go the extra mile for you, whatever that might entail. My goal is to make sure that when you're in your new home, you'll be so happy with the service I've provided during our time together that you'll say "Jan is my Realtor for Life!"

And THAT is my promise to you! Give me a call...Let's Work Together!
