Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Tonganoxie, KS.
Mike and Janet make a wonderful team. They're genuine and knowledgeable and always have a good reference for you if you need a repair or a contact. They're trustworthy and talented at what they do! I give them my A+ rating as realtors and now as friends.

Sold a home in 2012.
Janet listed our house for us about 8 months ago. She was very helpful and thorough in letting us know of anyway to improve the home. She held multiple open houses and went above & beyond to make sure that when we sold the home it was a very smooth and seemless transaction!

Janet exceeded our expectations over and beyond. We ran into some major bumps at our time of closing and Janet was right on top of the problem figuring out a solution for us. We are so grateful for everything that she did for us!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Linwood, KS.
Janet Shumway listed some property for us about a year ago that just sold. She put in a tremendous amount of time and effort on this deal---far beyond the call of duty. Also, when things were not looking good, she did the leg work to find out how to correct some errors. Phone calls and e-mails to us were answered very quickly. Janet handled a deal for us 5 years ago that went very well. We would recommend her for handling your listing!!!

Sold a home in 2012.
We began by interviewing agents to sell our home. After our intial interview with Janet we knew that she would be our agent. She came prepared to list our home, as well as answer our questions and concerns. We quickly became very comfortable with her knowledge of our type of sale. Her demeaner was very unassuming and truley a breath of fresh air. Her approach was one of honesty and integrity. Her knowledge and expertise was extremely helpful in the negotiation process. Many times it is difficult to advise when things aren't going your way. Janet continued to step up and provide guidance in the difficult situations that we faced. Within 45 days she was able to negotiate a reasonable offer to sell our home. Followup is key to many tranactions and Janet really stepped up. With her guideance and determination she made the experience easy. We will be moving soon and know that we will miss our home but also feel that if we were to sell again we will hire Janet again! I realize that many times these tranactions are business deals but we now have a new friend. Janet is an excellent agent, but she is even a better person!!

Sold a home in 2010.
A little over a year ago, I was faced with the daunting prospect of selling my home in Bonner Springs, along with helping my parents sell their home in Iowa, so that we could buy a house in the Basehor/Bonner Springs area. The odds of pulling that off seemed astronomical to me. Most said it wouldn't happen...they didn't know Janet!

Janet Shumway stepped up to this impossible realtor's challenge at a time when not much was moving on the housing market. Janet was friendly, understanding of my needs and wants, and set out from day one to make things happen. She helped me to understand reasonable expectations as the seller of a small, fixer-upper and as the buyer of a new home for aging parents and myself.

From initial pricing and staging advice to final inspections, Janet was like the proverbial dog with a bone. She not only worked to represent me in a fair deal, but often helped the realtors buying/selling on the other end of things with details their realtors were careless or sloppy about. Janet contacted financial institutions and worked to arrange timely financing and closing deals when deals on the sales of both homes were in jeopardy, due to buyer errors. She worked with my parents' realtor long distance to organize and finalize their sale when their realtor encountered problems, clear up to the day the moving van was headed their way.

Janet is a great problem solver. She is not afraid to approach all parties concerned for open and frank discussions regarding expectations and possibilities. Despite numerous obstacles placed in our path, we managed to sell both homes, closing the same week, and purchased a beautiful home that was just what we needed for everyone to have their own space.

Thanks Janet!

Bought a home in 2011.
To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter to express my appreciation for the service we received from your agent Janet Shumway. Janet started working with us in the winter of 2009, we had our house on the market and every time we thought it was going to sell we would start looking for a home in the Tonganoxie area. We lived 2 hours away from Tonganoxie so when we would come up to look, we would have several homes to look at. Janet is a very organized person and she would have them lined out in order and have all the paper work ready. It turns out we were not able to sell our home until Sept of 2010. All the time in between Janet would contact me to see how things were going. When our house did finally sell, I called Janet to start the house hunting again and as before she was very organized and very helpful. Our journey to find a home turned out to be a nightmare, not because of Janet, she remained calm and professional and even had sympathy when every bid we would make did not go through. We as clients made several mistakes in the process of looking for a home and at times were very difficult, and all the while Janet stayed professional and friendly. We were able to find a home and as of this date have not closed on it either, and not for any reason other than issues with the bank that are underway. Janet has been very honest and trustworthy and remains as a foundation to our home buying process. The main reason for this letter is to acknowledge a person who has went above and beyond the call of duty to do her job. I fell I have not only met a very professional agent, but a friend. As bad as things are in this world today, I feel it is very important to acknowledge some one for a job well done, and this is just how I feel about Janet. I would refer her to anyone who may be in the market to buy or sell, she is a wonderful person and most important to me, honest.

Sincerely,

Jessie Hamel (Note: Jessie's home did close a couple weeks later and she is very happy with it, Janet Shumway)
