Ratings & Reviews

My husband and I were first time home buyers and were very nervous about starting this process. Stephen met with us and explained every step of the process in a way we would understand and answered all of our specific and sometimes ridiculous questions. His intention was not only to help us look for a house but find a home that suit us and our needs! We felt so safe with him knowing he would not try to sell us an unlivable home or one that was out of our budget just to make a sale! We developed a friendship with him and got our home which fits us perfectly and couldn't be more satisfied! We ran into some speed bumps along the way with our loan too and Stephen was quick to negotiate and make sure we would not lose our home! He is an excellent realtor!

Our experience with Stephen was amazing! We had a very difficult transaction (nothing was ours, or Stephen's fault) and our sellers were very difficult to work with, but Stephen remained very professional and made sure we were taken care of at every turn! He is extremely honest, is not in it for the money, cares about the individuals he works with, and genuinely wants people to find their dream homes. Stephen is faithful to his clients and he holds to his own faith which directs his morality and honesty. You couldn't work with a better realtor and that's a fact!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Puyallup, WA.

i recently had the opportunity to work with Steve on 3 different Real Estate transactions. My sister and her husband were out of state on military deployment and needed help selling their primary residence and their rental and buying a home in the Puyallup area. Steve made the process easy and painless. By following Steve's advice the houses sold quickly and for good prices. The house we purchased in Puyallup for my sister was exactly what they wanted but was not listed for sale. When i told Steve it would be perfect he made it happen! I would not hesitate to use Steve for any future Real Estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in Puyallup, WA.

I was looking for a Christian Real Estate person to help my husband and I sell two houses and purchase one for our new home. Stephen Janho was suggested to me by a friend, who highly recommended him. I was very happy that he was a Christian and found that he worked very well with us throughout the entire process. We were living in Virginia at the time, so we depended on him completely. He worked with my sister, who was here in Washington to get our first house ready to sell. He give us some great suggestions to spruce it up and I liked the fact that he really cared about what our house look like, before it went on the market. He really knows the real estate business and how to price your house to sell for the highest amount possible. He kept us well-informed on what was going on with our house and he was right there with us through the whole process.

After we sold the house, Stephen went to work to find us our new home. I was still in Virginia looking for a house on the internet. Whenever I found one that looked interesting, I would call Stephen and give him the address. He would go out right away and send me pictures and do a walk through with his iPad to show me what the house looked like. He would give me all the details and what he thought was good and bad about the house and the neighborhood. He really cared about helping me find the house I really wanted.

When we finally found the house I wanted. He went to work putting the deal together, so we could get it. Now that I am here and actually in the house, I love it even more then, when I was looking at it through the iPad. I would highly recommend him (and already have) if you're looking for an honest and hardworking real estate person

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Glencoe, Renton, WA.

In the last 18 months Stephen Janho has helped me sell two houses and purchase my current home. He is truly an honest and ethical realtor, who I was fortunate to have representing me in completing these transactions. He diligently represented my interest, while completing the sale of my two houses and the purchase of my home. This was especially important, since I was stationed in Virginia with the U.S. Army at the time. Stephen kept me informed through the entire process from start to finish. He immediately contacted me with any issues that came up that needed my attention and regularly just called me to give me updates.

He is very good at analyzing the market in your surrounding neighborhood to determine the best price point for your property. He is also extremely good at identifying things that you can do to improve your home's appeal, before you put it on the market. To add to that, he has a list of qualified people that can make these repairs or improvements to your home at a reasonable cost. I followed his advice and made some improvements and repairs on the house I put on the market last November. I used the people he recommended for the improvements/repairs, which were completed at a very reasonable cost. The house sold in five days at my asking price.

Stephen knows his business and works hard to satisfy his clients. I would strongly recommend him to anyone for their real estate needs and I will not hesitate to use him in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Des Moines, WA.

We couldn't of asked for anyone better to help us through the process of buying our first home. My wife and I are both first time home buyers and Steve walked us through this experience every step of the way. He was available at, what seemed like, all hours of the day (we tried not to abuse this, but my wife is persistent). Anytime we wanted to go see the house again Steve agreed to meet us with keys. He was at the title signing and our house inspection. He gave us recommendations and assured us he was there to ensure we made good choices. He made recommendations on what we should ask to be done by the sellers before we agree to buy. It went back and forth a couple times but ultimately Steve's knowledge of the market and the process prevailed. We got everything we asked for. We knew he wasn't trying to make a quick buck on us because we would of bought the house anyway, but he suggested we don't buy if they don't agree to our terms. He was referred to us by a friend, and I will be referring him to anyone I know who needs a realtor. He goes above and beyond- but I will let you find out how, just in case it is different for each of his clients.

Bought a home in 2014 in Kitts Corner, Federal Way, WA 98003.

Stephen is a very professional real estate agent. He works extremely fast, always available, and best of all, makes things happen for his clients. He helped us get a great property and provided support before, during, and even after the deal. We would definitely use his services again in future and we highly recommend Stephen to everyone.

Sold a home in 2014 in Summit, WA 98373.

We felt so blessed to have Stephen step into our lives and assist us in not only selling our beloved home, but finding us the perfect house to make our future home. During our selling experience Stephen was very motivated and focused on our situation. Even though he had several other clients he was working with, we felt as if we were his only concern. While we were on vacation he even stopped by our house and blew the yard and driveway, AFTER we already had 2 full offers. Our purchase experience was just as inspired. Stephen went out of his way to get us showings as quickly as possible, and kept in constant contact with us every step of the way. Even though he could have easily had a sale on a couple of different options he steered us away from ones that either didn’t really suit our needs, or weren’t going to pay off for us in a resale situation. He is very knowledgeable with respect to building codes, setbacks, land usage, permits and several other potential conditions that may arise.

Once we found "the house" we couldn't have been happier with the sale price he negotiated on our behalf. His negotiation skills are above excellent! Even though there were conditions set by the underwriter Stephen eloquently stepped us through the whole process while collaborating with others to quickly arrive at a solution. Stephen is the most genuine, straightforward and personable agent we’ve ever worked with. His only interest was to ensure we got into something that fit our needs without complications, regardless of any opportunity for his own gain. He would rather see us happy and in a place that wasn’t riddled with problems then just make a sale. He even offered to help us move! Stephen is much more than a business associate, he has become our friend, and we look forward to having him and his family over to dinner once we're unpacked and settled in.

There is no one else we would rather work with, and our recommendation of Stephen's expertise, knowledge, negotiation skills and responsiveness is off the charts fantastic!

Steve could not have been more effective, considerate, knowledgeable, responsible, kind, thoughtful, organized, friendly, respectful, attentive, great communicator and flexible. To sum up our excellent experience with Steve, we could not have asked for a better agent to represent our family and we are so thankful we had the pleasure to partner with Steve.

Bought a home in 2014 in Lakota, Federal Way, WA 98023.

Stephen has been an absolute pleasure to work with. His level of professionalism, attentiveness, and sincere desire to do what what was right for my family and I was very much appreciated. Stephen took time to listen to every detail that mattered to us and facilitated home searching, viewing, and fact finding about the history and neighborhood logistics of each and every home we viewed. World class experience with Stephen; would highly recommend working with him!
