"We bought our starter home and the home that fits all 3 of our kids with Janet.
For our first home, Janet helped us consider things we didn't think of as first time home buyers. For our home now, Janet really listened to us, and took into consideration the things that were most important to us.
Janet helped us find a reputable closing lawyer and a lender that we really clicked with. I had some pretty specific qualifications I was looking for in a lender.
You can just tell she has been in the business long enough that she can connect you with so many different people, and she knows when to be helpful and when to stay outside and let you talk to your husband or wife realistically.
Both of our purchases came together in a speedy 35 days. We were blessed to just know when we found the right house, and Janet had all the tools to take it from there.
Last year we sold a house with Janet. She helped connect us with contractors who helped us update parts of the house that really needed be updated to sell the house for more money. She negotiated on our behalf, and she offered recommendations on pricing when we asked. She also had the research to back all of her recommendations up. She showed us comparable sales of houses in our area in the last few months.
When my family needed to sell a house, I was happy to recommend Janet. She had the house closed on in under 60 days after another realtor had failed to sell the house for over a year.
I would recommend Janet to any friends and family looking or selling from Hinsdale to Naperville. I have even confidentially recommended her to several people at work who were also very happy with her help.
She is a tough negotiator that I was happy to have on my side."
"Janet was a star. I work for a large US corporation that relocated me to the Chicago area from the West Coast. Janet was fantastic to work with on all aspects of the house-hunting and purchase experience. She also did several little things that were above and beyond the call of duty on inspections, schools, and contractor access."
"Janet was incredible to work with. She provided great options but even more helpful was her expertise in knowing what to look at, what to ask about, and helping us see a vision of what could be. We felt confident in our decisions because of her guidance. She made the whole process easy and fun -- and I'd highly recommend her for anyone looking for their next home."
"We recently listed our home with Janet Marinis of @Properties in Hinsdale. She was professional in every way. Janet listened carefully to our goals and concerns and gave her input with warmth, sincerity and professionalism. Everything Janet did was above and beyond! From the amazing photos for our digital listing and brochure to staging help, our home was portrayed beautifully. Janet renegotiated our deal well and our home sold in 3 weeks! We highly recommend Janet Marinis She is a top notch seasoned professional and made our our experience successful and as stress free as possible."
