Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Lansdowne, Charlotte, NC.
I first met Janet at an open house. My husband and I were new to the Charlotte area and fairly new to the house buying process. She immediately was welcoming and easy to talk to. Her knowledge about the Charlotte area was invaluable to me as I was not familiar with the area. She was not pushy or forceful but simply offered her services to me when she found out I did not yet have a realtor. After a day or two, she followed up with me to check to see if I still needed any help. I was beginning to get frustrated looking on my own as the houses in Charlotte were selling before I could even see them so I took her up on her offer. We set a time to meet and we sat down to discuss what location, type of house, price range etc. She was very informative in explaining the Charlotte areas to me. She printed off several options and we went together to look at a few that day. She also gave me several to “drive by” to get a feel for the neighborhoods. Janet was constantly available throughout this process through email, text and phone. During the next few months, Janet showed me about 60 plus homes not counting the “drive bys” and the online virtual tours. When we finally found a great house, she was prepared to help us make an offer. She had our best interest in mind but also helped us keep a realistic point of view. When we decided to withdraw our offer, she helped us through that as well. While on vacation out of the country, she was available through email and worked it out with a friend to show me some homes. We got ready to put in another offer on a different house but then backed out deciding it was too high of a price jump for us. Janet was very understanding during this entire frustrating process. She helped us find a third house in which we started the whole process again and even got as far as the inspection. Janet was marvelous to work during this due to her first hand experience of renovating several of her own homes. She helped us go through the inspection report and realize what were “major” versus “minor” issues. At the end of three months, we were still indecisive and we were concerned about the issues from the inspection report. She helped us through our concerns - getting us quotes to fix the issues if we wanted to proceed or offered to start back at square one. Janet stuck with us through the end even when we decided to go back to “house number one”. Through each of the negotiations, Janet was professional and had our best interests in mind. She was a pleasure to work with and we would definitely recommend her services!! Thanks so much for helping us find such a wonderful house - we love it!!! :)

Over the years, we have purchased and sold homes with 8 different realtors. Janet was by far--the best. Why? Because she listened, she was our advocate, our advisor, our negotiator. Her experience in the business provided an emotional calm for us. Why? Because we trusted her. She went the extra mile and did it with a great attitude!!
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Marshbrooke, Matthews, NC.
I first Spoke with Jannette While living in Australia from her Hit on Zillow.com. We spoke Via Skype (which a couple of others had not heard of) and she was able to generate a list of properties for us to see based on our initial conversation. She helped us with our rental situation and is working with us on a purchase with unconventional finance options. She has fantastic local knowledge specializing in the area where she lives, and is extremely Customer service oriented! I would highly recomend her service!

Relocating is always a daunting task. Buying & selling a home is emotional and very stressful. Janet Johnson and her staff made the experience as pleasant and as efficient as was humanly possible. She is a professional in the truest sense of the word. She is extremely knowledgeable about the business of real estate and also the demographics of our area. My husband and I would most definitely recommend Janet.

There are not enough great words to describe our experience working with Janet. My fiancé and I worked with Janet as our buyer’s agent in buying our first home. Buying your first home can a daunting experience and there is so much to consider. Janet was able to help us navigate the process of searching for and buying a home. She took the time to listen to what we were looking for in a home and was able to suggest areas for us to look at. She even brought up points to consider that would affect the resale of the home. Janet made sure that we only looked at homes with potential and didn’t waste our time. When we found a home that we were interested in, Janet researched surrounding properties to make sure that we were getting the best price and the best value home. She was with us every step of the way in the closing process and made the home buying process more enjoyable.
Janet always had great communication and was fast to respond when we had a request or questions and trust me, we had a lot. Even though we know that she had other clients, we always felt like a top priority for her. We can’t thank Janet enough for her help in buying our first home.

I have dealt with several real estate agents over the years and no one compares to Janet Johnson. Thats why we have used her more than once and will only use her for our future real estate needs. She is very knowledgeable, honest, and actually cares for her clients. She is the absolute best agent I have ever dealt with.

James, I love working with loyal clients! It's nice to be appreciated. You make selling real estate a pleasure.
My wife and I were very happy with our experience with Janet. She not only provided decorating advice, including bringing in many of her own items at no cost, but she was patient throughout the whole downward turn of the market. In fact, we sold months before the standard length of time! At the same time, she made sure that we were not undercut and was a fantastic negotiator. All in all, we were very satisfied with her services. Highly recommend Janet!

You both were great to work with and your recommendation and referrals are sincerely appreciated.
Janet was recommended by a trusted friend who also is in the real estate business. My wife and I were extremely impressed with Janet from the first meeting. She did a complete analysis of what we were looking for and targeted homes that met our requirements. She also exhibited great patience as she stuck with us over a couple years as we were contemplating relocating to the area from NYS. In the end, it was Janet who recommended we consider Sun City Carolina Lakes in South Carolina and we found our future home. We ended up building a new home and couldn't be happier. All thanks to Janet's recommendation.

Recommended without reservation.
We have been fortunate to work with highly qualified and very motivated real estate professionals for each transaction of the three homes we’ve bought and sold. Out of this group Janet still rises to the top. For her it’s personal (in a very professional way).
In 2007 we moved to Charlotte from out of state. We started to work with Janet from afar as we conducted an on-line search several weeks in advance of a house hunting trip. We explained what our preferences were and she introduced us to neighborhoods and houses that might fit what we were looking for. She commented on listings I sent to her and gave advice freely (even submitting to an email word/neighborhood association game – what a sport!). When we came in town for a single week of house hunting, she devoted her time to helping us become successful and was a valued participant as we toured homes. Her deep background in house renovation added an eye for detail that was most useful, even to a building design professional such as me. After an initial viewing of an insane number of places, we were able to identify a short list of six homes and had a house under contract by the end of the week.
While the house was under contract and we were again far away, Janet assisted us by being present at the home inspection and lining up design and construction professionals for us to take care of the work identified. All details were seen to so that the closing went off without a hitch. After we moved in she continued to assist us in small ways as we settled in.
If we ever have to sell our current home, we will turn to Janet to help us.
