Professional Background 

I have been an active Monterey Peninsula real estate agent since January 2005. My previous work was in finance, accounting & investment management.  As a parent, I also had the opportunity to participate in local theatre, our children's schools & have served on several non-profit boards.  We purchased our first home in 1978 & since then, my husband and I have been through 16 transactions as either buyers or sellers ourselves.  My years in real estate have been exciting as well as challenging.  I have represented many buyers & sellers, mainly in Carmel, Pebble Beach & Carmel Valley. My goal, particularly with listings, is to help sellers painlessly prepare their properties for sale, to market & attract as many potential buyers to their homes in creative ways.  I am a hard worker and am very dedicated to my clients, my family & friends.

Ratings & Reviews

Of Janey's many professional and personal qualities that have been enumerated in other reviews and with which I fully agree, honesty, integrity and the ethical manner in which she conducts business are amongst those I consider most valuable. She is completely trustworthy, is attentive to the smallest of details, and always has the interests of her client foremost in her dealings. Beyond her knowledge of the local real estate market, her understanding of the ever-changing micro and macro financial and economic conditions and trends provide a context in which important decisions are more easily made. She's worth every dollar in commission she's paid!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $1.425M in Carmel, CA.

Among the numerous real estate agents I encountered going to open houses for over 2 years, I carefully chose Janey because of the special qualities that made her stand out. She grew up in Carmel and raised her children here which gives her a a very personal knowledge of the local life and history. In addition to being one of the hardest working agents I have ever known, she always impressed me with how prepared she was with thoughtful answers to all my questions and concerns, often sending me lengthy emails at 1AM. She won me over with her enthusiasm, generosity, professionalism, patience and honesty... always careful to point out the negatives as well as the positives of any property she showed me... never ever rushing me or pushy in any way. Janey literally walked me through the buying experience and turned what could have been a tedious and scary business transaction into an exciting and fun adventure. I lucked out not only finding a wonderful new home, but someone I consider a new friend as well.  More Less

04/01/2011 - Janey Given
Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $1.175M in Pebble Beach, CA.

Three years ago my wife and I met Janey at an open house and were immediately impressed with her professionalism and knowleged of the Carmel and Pebble Beach market. Even though we had touched base with another agent we knew that JAney was the right choice. Since we were looking for a second home we need an agent that had a lot of patience over a long period of time. Over a six month period we looked at many houses and bid of quite a few until we finally bought our dream house in Pebble Beach. During the entire time Janey provided us impecable service and friendship. Since we were adsentee buyers it was extremely important to have boots on the ground and every referral to accomplish the closing, repairs etc were perfect. Three years later we still use Janey as a source of referrals, advice and have referred numerous clients to her.  More Less
