The absolute very best! Trust, personal, supportive and amazingly effective!!

Janice was recommended to us and I'm extremely glad we found her. She worked very hard on the sale of our house (showing it, publicizing it, and handling all the scheduling and paperwork involved in a concurrent sale/purchase). She sold our house very quickly and for over asking price. Her knowledge and insight on both our sale and purchase saved us a lot of time and a lot of worry. I would use her again in a heartbeat and have already recommended her to friends. She's a genuine pleasure to deal with and just a truly nice person.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Janice Laney. She is completely professional and available at all times and actually answers the phone so you don't have to play endless "phone tag". She is timely in getting forms and information back. She gives great feedback and is supportive in making decisions without being pushy. She is like having an angel sent from heaven who is working on your behalf when you don't even know about it." I had just come out of a very bad experience with a realtor, so when I found Janice, it was a breath of fresh air. I see now why she is on the Agent Leadership Council at Keller Williams. She is top notch.

Janice is the best real estate agent whom we have had the pleasure to work with. She was extremely well-prepared and spent two whole days with us showing all available property and giving us a grand tour in and around town, typically reserved for tourists on vacation. She spared no time and effort finding the right house for us, even though the odds seemed to be working against us in the specified price range. She managed to locate a “dream house” for almost a bargain price and got our offer accepted against other competing bids. She greatly facilitated the closing process by mediating between us, the title company, numerous other agencies and the bank. She went as far as arranging and supervising repairs which would have been upon us. After closing, she volunteered to transfer the utilities to our name; even received and stored furniture and household appliances in our absence. In summary, she has made the whole house-buying process a joy and has earned our highest recommendation.

We met Janice while we were looking for a rental. Janice mentioned that we should think about buying with the rent we were considering, we didn't think it was possible. She was amazing, never pushy, always there to guide us and introduce us to the right mortgage company etc. helped in every detail along the way- she really listened to what we wanted and made sure we were prequalified. She really made the process easy and we never once felt we didn't understand something, she was always there to clarify things for us, early mornings and late evenings she was there assisting along the way. I would recommend Janice to all my friends and clients, she is the best. Thanks Janice

YOU are absolutely amazing!!! Last night woke up to the Trulia "ping" on the phone....it said the property was "active" again. This AM , I'm waiting for the email of the signed contract, then will swill a quick glass of Champagne and make note of your very important comments. Thank you again....you are like my "guardian angel"!! Cheers

Dude: We were 300 miles away, and they sold our house for us without ever needing us to be around! They took care of everything, without bothering us, without forcing anything upon us, Janice and Leah were "team" for the whole experience. We felt supported throughout the whole experience, they asked us what we wanted to do, and then they took care of business! If you are serious about selling your house, and don't want, or need any hassles, well Janice and Leah were the winning "team" for us! Just about everyone on our cul-de-sac were stunned how quickly our house sold...and though we only hinted at the sale price their response was, REAAAAAALLLLY?!?

From beginning to end renting our home was "painless" because Janice was the quintessential professional. She was timely and efficient in all respects. She found us the perfect tenant in two days and staying in communication with me every step of the way keeping me up to date and informed. AND, she is great fun to work with. I certainly will call Janice again when the time comes to rent again.
