The difference in working with an average agent and an amazing agent is Janey. She is a superstar agent.. Janey is a great listener, caring, responsive, honest and will work overtime. She is a great "connector", meaning she will connect the dots to find the right home, in the right price range with the right strategy and knows everyone. Janey is now a great friend!
Showed home in 2014 in Lucas Valley, San Rafael, CA.
Words on a page aren't nearly enough to express our gratitude for Janey. Our family made a lifestyle change, moving from NYC to Marin County. She's the "Uber" agent of Marin. Janey's knowledge of the area from schools to fine dining, housing to doctor referrals, and everything in between, makes her the most valuable resource for a transplant. Janey has never met a stranger.
In a extremely tight market, Janey remained positive and hopeful. She is persistent and works until she finds it. She's extremely personable, approachable yet professional. We didn't know the area whatsoever and had many questions. Months of phone calls never seem to burden her and she always made time for us.
Our children have never been happier which is a priceless gift from Janey. We searched for an agent, and landed a friend. Anyone planning a move to Marin County would be hard pressed to find a better agent than Janey. She's a gem!!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in Novato, CA.
We worked with Janey for about 4 months in an extremely competitive market. Homes were on sale for a day and selling for thousands over the asking price. It was so disheartening and emotional. Janey was our rock through the process. She was always available, knew all the areas in Marin amazingly well, and really understood our needs in a home. When we did find a house we loved, Janey was on top of the deal. She negotiated brilliantly, and really put our best interests first. She is a go-getter and we are so lucky we came across her when visiting an open house.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.25M in San Rafael, CA.
If it had not been for Janey, this transaction would not have happened. Not only did she look out for our best interest, she did most of the listing agents job. We will definitely be using Janey's expertise for our next real estate transaction.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in San Anselmo, CA.
We loved working with Janey because she is honest, smart, and real. She is an exceptional realtor, from finding our home to negotiating the price and closing the deal she was essential at every step. Janey knows the ins and outs of the schools, the neighborhoods, the restaurants, the history and the general on-goings of Marin, she is well connected here. We asked her to show us homes ranging from Lagunitas to Larkspur to San Rafael, she must have thought we we're crazy because when we met we told her that we only wanted to buy a house in San Anselmo. If she did think we we're crazy she never let on, if she did feel burdened by us asking ten thousand questions about 50 different houses we never had any idea. I'm writing this review from the house of our dreams in San Anselmo. Thank you Janey!
Janey Kaplan was an amazing realtor for purchasing my first home! Buying your first home is an overwhelming experience, but Janey made the process so simple in finding a great home in such a difficult market. Janey has exceptional realtor skills and local knowledge of all the areas in Marin County. If you are looking to buy (or sell) a property in the current real estate market, I cannot recommend Janey enough!
Janey is an outstanding realtor and referral partner who consistently exceeds my expectations in her responsiveness and committment to her prospects and clients. Use Janey, you will be delighted at the results, I am.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $550K in San Rafael, CA.
This was the first time of buying a home and working with Janey made everything seem so easy. She was very patient taking us to multiple homes in one day to review and getting to know what we wanted in a home. We are now in our dream home thanks to Janey!
