Agent of Choice
Jane has been our "Agent of Choice" for many reasons. Three top reasons:
Caliber of Jane's character. Her honest straightforward response throughout the search/purchase or sale process.
Her knowledge and research of neighborhoods and properties regarding "local climate" to possible zoning issues.
And thirdly, all the vendors and resources she utilizes and shares validate her reliability and character!
If Jane is your Realtor, you have a personable professional working for you!
Happy to be a reference for Jane.

First -Time Homebuyers
"Excellent! As a first-time homebuyer, I was not very knowledgeable about the process, but Jane helped me every step of the way. Jane demonstrated that she cared about me as a person, and not just another sale."
-Sheila Noel & Bill Graves
"I appreciated Jane's professionalism and her consultative approach. The service was more than excellent. Jane was always accessible and consistently worked on my behalf. I felt that she had a personal interest in the purchase and sale of my home."
"Incredible service!!! Jane Johnson is the best. The purchase of our new home got complicated, and Jane was there every step of the way providing the critical resources, referrals, and expertise required to resolve this matter. Jane Johnson sets the example of what a 'good real estate agent' should be."
-Jennifer & Jonathon Rodriquez
She educated us
We were not familiar with the Seattle area. She explained neighborhoods well to us. And we are not familiar with condo purchasing and local rules and regulations. She educated us and guided us until the closing. We are in east coast. Many times we sent e-mails to her in Eastern time. She replied to us very quickly.
While we were at Seattle in early September, she spent Saturday and Sunday with us. ~ Marty and Angela Yoo
Very personable, Jane was committed to finding the perfect house for our family no matter how long it took. We never felt that we were bothering her, no matter how many houses we saw or how many times we saw a particular house. Jane always made herself available to see a property. Jane made sure we got the house we wanted, even though there were multiple offers. We couldn't be happier with how things turned out. We will definitely recommend Jane as a real estate agent and will use her for our future real estate needs. ~ Anna Kapogiannatos and Manuel Ferreira
Jane went above and beyond to help make sure the transaction went smoothly, and also provided valuable tips and advice on living in the area in general. ~ Caleb Lewis
She was extremely patient with us. ~ Elizabeth Ware and Brian Kestenbaum
Jane was great!
Jane was great. As first time homebuyers, she helped us to see the good and potential costly issues in homes we visited. We felt and still feel we can trust Jane with any questions we ask as she is an honest person truly looking out for our best interest in buying a home. From a Windermere side of things the whole process was smooth and Jane really helped us through everything. We didn't expect the level of service we received. Jane also gave us a very generous gift at the end of the process. There is nothing Jane could have done. The only part of the whole process that was rocky was using US Bank for our loan. Joan did mention that she had never seen US Bank used before, but she said the decision was up to us. I wish we would have followed her advice! ~ The Erskine's
Jane was wonderful!
Jane was wonderful. It took about a year of looking to find a house and I never felt rushed. Jane learned my taste and previewed homes for me ahead of time. I felt totally taken care of and she is the best agent I've ever worked with. I will definitely work with her again and refer her to everyone I know. I consider her a friend at this point! When the house closed and the sellers finally moved out, the left the house in shambles. Jane started cleaning, contaced the sellers and had them send a truck over to pick-up a bunch of hazmat stuff they'd left behind. I can't think of anything Jane could have done better. She was available whenever I wanted to look at homes, always pleasant and in a good mood, sent me listings that weren't even posted yet and was absolutely great to work with. ~ Shawn McCallister and Steve Casowitz
Jane has deep expertise in the Seattle market.
I have used Jane Johnson as a realtor since 1997. She has sold four homes and purchased three homes for me. In addition, I have recommended her to multiple friends who have used her to successfully sell or purchase homes. I have also had to use other realtors over the years for a variety of reasons so am able to compare the service I have received from Jane versus from these other realtors. Please allow me to share my experiences.
Jane is meticulous in her preparation, homework and due diligence. When I first identified Jane as a realtor I wanted to use, it was because she was the listing agent for a neighbor's home in Ravenna. Jane ensured that the home was presented perfectly, with materials that highlighted the homes unique features. We chose her as the listing agent for our Ravenna home and went to work! With Jane you have a partnership. She helped us to make the changes that would help our home to sell while avoiding changes that would have been expensive and time-consuming, with questionable value. When it came time to decide on the day to bring the house onto the market and to decide on the selling price, Jane arrived with a market analysis to help guide us to make a solid business decision rather than an emotional decision. A few years later when a friend was selling and then buying a house, Jane was just as savvy, helping my friend to land a great home in a difficult bargaining situation. I used Jane to buy a home in the University district and won out against 9 other bids! Mine was not the highest, but Jane helped me to identify what the owners most wanted in terms of convenience and other intangibles and to package my bid with "love". She was astute in reading the sellers and the other agent. I used Jane to sell a home for a disabled family member in the ViewRidge neighborhood and again, she was outstanding to help get a good price and lessen the burden of my job.
Jane has deep expertise in the Seattle market. She does her homework so that you -- as a seller or buyer -- can feel confident that you understand the local market. She helps guide you in the purchase or sale of a home without pressuring you in any way. I can attest to her patience when I have said that a home just didn't feel right, and that was good enough reason to cross off the list. But Jane also owns her expertise. When there are things that she is confident a homeowner really should do to help a home sell, she will tell you. And similarly, when there is something about a home that makes it a questionable purchase, even if you are gushing about it, she will speak up. I trust Jane Johnson and because of that, I continue to use her as my Seattle realtor and to recommend her to my friends.
Jane goes out of her way to make the process smooth
Jane has a good knowledge of the neighborhoods and an understanding of what buyers are looking for. Jane was always available to answer our questions about getting our house prepared for market and take us through the process of selling. This is the 2nd time we have worked with Jane and she does more than just listing. She goes out of her way to make the process smooth & profitable.
I highly recommend her!
Jane Johnson listed our condo in fall 2017 - she was great. Our condo was in need of TLC after renters. Jane had great ideas and contacts to help us get everything quickly in order to sell. Our condo complex had a rather large assessment that we had to pass onto buyers so she was able to make that happen for us and we had four great offers to choose from. She is communicative, honest and extremely knowledgeable so I highly recommend her.
Sold my Townhouse in a Week!
Jane Johnson sold my townhouse on Magnolia in a week. I got my asking price and Jane was right on the market. The timing and pricing were perfect. I chose Jane because a few years ago she found a perfect house for me as I moved to the Seattle area and 9 years later found the Magnolia town house for me at the price I wanted to pay and sold the other for me. Her timing and pricing calls have been right with the market all the way. I have never hesitated to refer her to others.
