Ratings & Reviews

My limited interaction with Janet was poor. She was aggressive and rude. She wanted to show my home and was not accepting of my response that the home was unavailable during the time she desired.

I have never met this person and have no knowledge of this interaction. I work very hard to serve all my clients and provide them with superior service.

Bought a home in 2014 in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA 92129.

Janet had no problems showing us the houses we requested to see given a short timeline and the long distance she had to travel to show the homes. Furthermore, she went above and beyond in several areas. We were selling on one end and buying on the other end. On the sell side, she stepped up and and made numerous calls to lenders, escrow officers, etc. keeping us more abreast than our realtor who was selling our house. This was a tremendous relief to my wife and I because the process was getting stressful due to financial issues the buyers of our house were having. This was also holding up us buying a house on the other end. She was very helpful through the process

Sold a home in 2014 in University City, San Diego, CA 92192.

Janet exhibits professionalism and strong real estate marketing knowledge. She listens to her clients and finds room for compromise. I was very happy with Janet’s managing the listing and sale of my house. Regards, Glen

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.

Janet was a joy to work with. Mostly because she is the one who did all the work and stayed on top of all the paperwork, showing me several homes, inspection details etc. She was always there for me and I never had to wait long before she got back to me if she couldn't take my call right away. I always felt that my finding the right home was just as important to her as it was to me. I would recommend Janet to anyone who was looking for a home. Andrea LaValley

Sold a home in 2013 in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA 92129.

I have worked with Janet on many transactions over the years and she is always very professional. She has an uncanny ability to find just the right house for her buyers without wasting a lot of time. Her contract negotiation skills are impressive while always looking out for her client's best interest. She is also a very proficient listing agent advising her sellers and helping them sell quickly at top dollar. She works with many clients that were discouraged or frustrated and turns them into happy buyers and sellers. She is a dream to work with!

Sold a home in 2014.

I hired Janet "over the phone" after I had an issue with a previous broker. She answered all of my questions and showed a level of expertise that I wanted from my agent. I gave her the listing and eventually met with her a few weeks later. I was impressed with her marketing plan and knew I made the right decision. My home was on the market for over 2 years before Janet got the listing. She worked very hard to market my home in the rural area of North/Eastern San Diego County. We got creative with a cash buyer and closed escrow in 12 days. I have moved from California and will probably not be back, but if I do return to the San Diego area she will be one of the first people I call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Escondido, CA.

Janet is as genuine as they come! We were referred to another Realtor before Janet, but we decided to work with Janet because her desire and passion to educate her clients was obvious from the beginning. We did not feel rushed, concerned, or overwhelmed with the entire process and that is due to Janet's professionalism and patience in meeting our needs. She was very easy to get a hold of. It was rare for Janet to miss our call. When she does, we would get a call back within the hour. She was so willing to help us that at times we would discuss our strategy until 11pm to make sure we go to bed with no regrets or concerns. The greatest part about working with Janet is the final outcome. She was able to get us our house on budget, in the right location, and most importantly, a place we could call a home. If you're looking for a realtor that truly wants to help and put you in the right position for a successful purchase, then work with Janet. She will not disappoint you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $575K in San Carlos, San Diego, CA.

Janet helped us get our dream house. She worked relentlessly to negotiate and close our property in record time and took care of all the loose ends before we even had to ask. Can honestly say if we hadn't used Janet we would not have gotten our current home. One thing my wife and I really liked about her was that she looked out for our best interest as opposed to telling us what we wanted to hear just to make a sale. If there was something wrong with a house she would point it out and she won't let you offer too much on a house. She really knows her stuff when it comes to real estate. We highly recommend Janet if you're looking to buy a home in San Diego! She's one of the best around!

Other service. Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA 92129

Best real estate agent we have known. She is very thorough and is treating us with utmost care. She has been doing diligent study of the area that we are interested in and has been guiding us to the right house without being pushy ( which is a big plus for the a real estate agent).She answers the phone promptly and calls back at the time promised. She has shown us more houses in a week that we have been with her than the agent we had for the past 4 months. We would highly recommend her.

Showed home in 2008 in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA 92126.

We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Janet McCarthy and the Prudential Team in assisting us in finding and purchasing a wonderful home in San Diego. We were renting a home in San Diego and began looking to purchasing a home in the Spring of 2008. We were not in a rush given the real estate market and we wanted to find the right home for our family. After looking at several homes initially, Janet was able to understand our minimal and maximum requirements from both the home specifications point of view, but also the financial aspects of purchasing a home. Over the course of a five month period we narrowed our list of homes and began the bidding process. We, initially, placed two bids on Short Sales homes. The Short Sale process is quite painful from a buyer perspective and, we are sure, from a Realtor perspective. Throughout this process, Janet kept us well informed as to the status and utilized several "in-house" Prudential Services to assist in managing the Short Sale. Ultimately, we did not buy either of the Short Sale properties due to various trials and tribulations. In mid-October of 2008, we found a wonderful home that was for sale directly from the home owner's. Given that, by this time, Janet had all of our requirements and financial contacts/information, we were able to quickly come to terms and close the sale. While frustrating at times during this five-month period, Janet never waivered from representing our interests in a positive manner. In the end, we had a win-win situation in which all parties were happy. Thanks again for your management and support throughout this process!
