Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $850K in Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks, CA.

We have know Jan personally and professionally for more than a decade. Originally, Jan helped us buy our first home when we moved to Los Angeles; she was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and kind as we adjusted to a new city and the accompanying sticker shock. She listened to our needs and showed us a variety of neighborhoods and options until we were comfortable with what was right for us. We have since worked with Jan to sell and purchase 2 additional properties - and in each situation, Jan helped us negotiate favorably on our behalf, and ultimately moved us up the property ladder. Beyond being a terrific realtor, Jan has also become a great friend, and we can't recommend her highly enough.

Bought a Condo home in 2010 in Pico-Robertson, Los Angeles, CA.

I used a few agents before Jan--and then the clouds parted and she answered all our dreams. She's so easy to work with: calm, pragmatic, savvy, trustworthy, and FUN. She really listens and has great visualization skills.

You spend a lot of time with your agent, and you need Jan. Without her, we would still be renting! Her negotiating skills and knowledge were KEY.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $900K in Studio City, North Hollywood, CA.

Jan helped us both buy and sell a home in the incredibly difficult real estate market of 2011. First, she not only found us a qualified serious buyer for our home, but also got us an excellent price at a very challenging time. While exhaustively looking for our next house, Jan understood exactly what we were looking for, and never wasted our time with anything less than what she knew we’d be happy with. Once we did find the perfect house, a home that I believe half of Studio City also wanted, Jan was somehow able to miraculously make our dream home a reality for us. Anyone involved in that transaction will attest to the fact that her perseverance and professionalism is what made the difference in an incredibly complicated and competitive sale, with absolutely no room for mistakes. Jan’s experience, negotiating skills, and long standing industry contacts made the horribly stressful job of buying and selling a home simultaneously, as smooth and successful as one could have possibly hoped for. In a tough, highly competitive, generally disingenuous business, Jan is a true pleasure to work with. -Robert & Lori D.

Bought a Condo home in 2004 for approximately $600K in Cheviot Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

Jan Hohenstein took my friend and I all around to see places to buy when I was new to the area. I admired her knowledge of this huge city not only for the homes and property they were on, but also the neighborhood flavor. When you are traveling all about town it is certainly a pleasure to be in the company of someone like Jan who is fun and competent. I still reside in the home Jan helped me find nine years later and love it.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $925K in Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks, CA.

Jan is a rare agent who is experienced, knowledgeable, efficient and an absolute delight to work with. She genuinely cares about her clients and works diligently and enthusiastically to ensure that they find the home they are looking for. We have bought two homes with her assistance and heartily recommend her to friends. We would never buy a home without her!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Mid Wilshire, Los Angeles, CA.

As first time homebuyers, we were really daunted by the process. Jan, with her lovely, warm, and FUNNY personality put us immediately at ease. I also felt like she "got" us immediately - knew what we wanted and where and why. Everything she showed us was within the price range we wanted, too - I feel like many other realtors try to upsell. She lined up a day of viewing homes, and we ended up putting an offer on the very first place she took us to! It was a great place, and naturally there were multiple offers. Jan led us through this stressful process of a bidding war, and in the end we were selected to buy the place! (By the way, she did this all while suffering from throwing out her back; she stayed cheerful and worked incredibly hard for us despite her condition!)

Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $1.55M in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, CA.

Jan is simply the best. I met Jan while working with another less experienced real estate agent. Her patience and understanding impressed me immediately. She's honest, straightforward, and wanted to make sure I got a great deal. I felt like she was my partner in purchasing my first home. As a buyer, I was impressed that Jan knew everything that was on the market or coming onto the market. I also respect Jan because she didn't just point out the positives in a home - she had a balanced approach and never, ever rushed or pressured me into anything. You can't go wrong!

Sold a Single Family home in 2007 in Riverside Rancho, Glendale, CA.

Jan has helped me buy and sell 3 homes in the Los Angeles area. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, quick and AVAILABLE - something I found other agents not to be. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the greater LA area meet with Jan!!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $600K in Los Angeles, CA.

Jan is simply the best realtor I've worked with on any score! She's attentive, fiercely intelligent and knows how to listen. She found solutions to some heady problems for me. For which I am grateful. Jan is an expert negotiator, knowing how to persuade as well as say a most compelling "no." She negotiated two deals for me in a very difficult market. I am convinced that the good results that I got with Jan as my representative would not have happened without her being on the case. She is loyal, discreet, brainy and honest in thought and deed. There is no question that we will work together again.
