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!
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.

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!
