Ratings & Reviews

Janet helped us in the purchase of our new house when we relocated to the Pittsburgh area, and I am so grateful for a friend's recommendation of her! My husband and I knew nothing about Pittsburgh, and Janet was so patient and helpful in our new home search. Initially, we were making weekend trips up from Lancaster and she was always accomodating of our schedules. She must have answered as many questions about Pittsburgh in general as she did about real estate...and we had plenty of both! We finally ended up building a new home in a new home community, and Janet held me together through the entirety of it. Hands down, best experience I've had with any Realtor, ever.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Pittsburgh, PA.

My experience with Janet has been very positive. This is the first time that I've sold a house and I am very fortunate to have had Janet's expertise, guidance, process knowledge, kindness, and patience. Throughout the entire sales process, I knew that she had my best interests at heart. There was never a time when I felt like I was interrupting her or that she was too busy for me. She provided just the right amount of encouragement that I needed to move forward and sell my house. I had an all-around terrific experience and I would highly recommend hiring her for your next home purchase or sale!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Gibsonia, PA.

Janet was very helpful at every stage of the process. Questions were answered promptly and we were kept fully informed every step of the way. We didn't make it easy on her by any means and the process got a little crazy, but Janet prevailed and now we are living in our dream home. Thanks Janet!!! We would recommend you to anyone in the buyer's market! Thanks! Tim & Katie Breen

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Blawnox, PA.

Janet provided top notch service selling my parents house. She was creative with the listing to attract buyers and gave excellent pricing advice. She made selling this house from another state simple, taking advantage of the latest electronic documentation technology. I would highly recommend Janet for any sales or purchase in the Pittsburgh area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Pittsburgh, PA.

We are senior citizens purchasing our first home (my husband built our first house), so we needed educating and patience. Luckily for us we, found Janet McKay. She shepherded us through the process of searching for the rare, hard-to-find ranch house in a specific area. Her wise advice and obvious depth of experience were reassuring. She always responded promptly to our calls, texts and emails and facilitated showings in a timely fashion. Her guidance during negotiations as we made an offer and all the steps leading to closing meant so much to us. She made this experience extremely rewarding. We highly recommend her.

Ah, you made my day with your kind words, Michele! You guys were so easy to work with - I totally enjoyed our time together. And don't refer to yourselves as senior citizens - you have more energy than some twenty year old's I know!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in New Kensington, PA.

My wife and I reached out to regarding the home buying process. We saw that she was highly recommended and as first time home buyers we wanted to make sure we were in good hands. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by her professionalism, her down to earth demeanor and her understanding of our concerns as a first time home buyers. We truly felt as though we were in good hands even though we took her away from her normal selling/buying area (hence the local knowlege score, but I wouldn't hold that against her if I was picking again). The only hang ups we had were with the mortgage company and the lack of transperancy involved in the process, but again that isn't something than Janet would control.

Bottom line is that Janet is a good, honest agent and is very catering to your needs. I would definitely recommend her.

Sold a home in 2014 in Gibsonia, Pine Township, PA 15044.

Janet is a dedicated professional. She listens to her clients and responds to their buy/sell needs, instead of "pitching" them. She works hard and is an excellent closer. Highest recommendation!!
