"Outstanding experience with Jan. Amazing market knowledge, flexible, quick to respond, solid guidance at decision points, and very easy to work with."


"Jan is a wonderful person, this is the second home we have bought with her and she cares most about finding the right place for each individual client."


"Jan was great to work with and provided excellent and efficient service."


"Jan made our house hunting task a joyous experience. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the Evanston market and we appreciated her detailed knowledge of historic homes. Members of our extended family came along on many of the viewings and Jan got a kick out of meeting everyone. Now that we have bought a wonderful home, Jan has been helpful in recommending companies to make minor repairs. We highly recommend Jan to other prospective buyers!"


"Jan is a true professional and a joy to work with. She has a strong knowledge of the Evanston real estate market and what it takes to close a deal. My family now has our "forever home" thanks to her. I would with out a doubt recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Evanston."


"Jan was a tremendous help in helping us find our new home. She quickly understood our preferences and demonstrated an intimate understanding of the North Shore market, premarket listings, valuation, and comps. Additionally, she provided great insight into the individual properties we were looking at and was able to answer many questions about their renovations (completed and those we were considering) to help us find the perfect fit."


"After having an extremely poor experience with another broker, Jan came in and saved the day. Our previous broker was unable to secure a loan within our desired range. In fact, he told us that it was impossible. Jan swooped in and made it happen. Because of her, we were able to buy the home of our dreams. Jan worked VERY hard to show us houses, touring with us every weekend until we found a place. Despite having multiple offers fall through, Jan stayed with the process and helped us towards an end. She was a consummate negotiator and did everything possible to push a deal through. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Jan was always on our side. If something wasn't right about a deal, she had no qualms about walking away. She was the consummate broker."


"We had our property listed with another broker, our neighbor, on and off for two years, with little if any effort to sell it. I did research on the inernet and found Jan Hazlett. She had remarkable credentials and appeared to be a "heavy hitter". Besides being sweet and knowledgeable, she absolutely walked it, like she talked it. Being a real estate attorney and having dealt with legions of realtors over the years, I can only say that we were blown away by her professionalism and the interest she generated in the property. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!"


"From our first viewing to closing day, Jan helped make every step of our home purchase smooth and easy. She offered great counsel along the way, and now that we are in our home we couldn't be happier."


"Jan was fantastic to work with, and her expertise and guidance through the process led us to find the perfect option for our family. Her knowledge of the area is invaluable, and we would highly recommend her to people searching for a home."


"Jan was fantastic every step of the way! As first time home buyers we really didn't know what to expect and jan was always available and willing to answer any question that came up. She knows everything about homes and everyone in Evanston. She was truly amazing"


"It was a pleasure to work with Jan. She was professional, but also warm and sensitive. She was very aware that it was extremely difficult for us to let go of our home of 32 years. She was patient and understanding during this major transition in our life journey."


"Jan did a fabulous job selling my home. In this economy, she managed to guide me to the right price and it sold within two weeks in multilple offers. Plus, we got a higher price than I had hoped. Not only that, because I was involved in a serious health issue and a wedding, she took care of everything. I cannot say enough good things about my experience! Thank you! http://tinyurl.com/9wnux76"


"Although my broker was very busy, she always made me feel like I was her only client. Jan was very sensitive to the fact that the sale of my house was an emotional roller coaster since this was the home that I lived in for over 37 years. I have already recommended her to a friend and will continue to do so."



"Jan knows the Evanston market so well and helped us prep our condo for the sale. She was extremely flexible and available, so we had numerous showings throughout the daytime and evenings. Her knowledge and quickness were essential to the speedy sale at the right price!"



"We had a great experience working with Jan to sell our home. She's a real pro who kept us well-informed each step of the way and was a pleasure to work with."



"Jan Hazlett is outstanding as a broker and person. She's extremely knowledgeable, patient and personable. A pleasure to work with."


"Youhave given me service beyond any service provider Ive ever had of anything. They should have you in a training video"


"Jan, is fantastic!! She was so helpful and made the tranistion so much easier.Thanks Jan!!"


"Jan owes it to us to let us take her to dinner at the restaurant if her choice!!!! She covered all the odd balls that we threw at her and guided us when it mattered most. Her expertise of the area landed us in the wonderful neighborhood of Breaside, and we owe her the gratitude that comes from her dedication to helping us find the perfect home for us. We hope to work with her in the future for investment properties and if we ever ( doubtfully ) leave our new piece of paradise."


"April 2009: My wife and I worked with Jan both in selling our previous home and in buying our current one. She is absolutely first-rate in every way--extraordinarily familiar with the market, adept at handling people. skilled at managing negotiations. We love the place we're in, and we would NEVER had found it without Jan. We've routinely recommended Jan to our friends and colleagues, and she gets rave reviews from all of them. Don't hesitate to engage her."


"Jan is extraordinary!! She introduced us to the Evanston community with a tour of the area. She offered great insights on the nature of the market, housing stock and various neighborhoods. She caught on to our likes and dislikes very quickly, and when she toured a home that fit our tastes, she let us know about it immediately (and she also let us know when one wouldn't work for us). When she toured the home we eventually bought, she immediately sent us a message indicating that she'd seen the perfect house for our needs. We traveled to Evanston later that week and were under contract a couple days later. We loved our experience with Jan and love our new home. Jan is an exceptional agent, but she is also a great person that we view as a family friend (our daughter loves her)."


"2008 to Present: Jan has worked with me on two real estate transactions over the past 2 years. She has always been professional, easily accessible and knowledgable about the process. She has been a pleasure to work with and I will definitely choose to work with her again when the time comes. Thanks Jan!"


"1990 to Present: Jan is a top agent. I have known her since 1990 and she has handled many transactions for my law office clients and one other for me. She gets the offering price right (not too high, not too low). She gets great photos of the premises for the website. She communicates well with her clients and gives great advise during the negotiation of the contract. I would recommend her to anyone."


"2010 to Present: Jan is incredibly responsive and always goes above and beyond the call in order to get the best results for us."


"Thank you so much for all of we LOVE living here (albeit among the boxes!!) so far and are so excited to get settled in. Would would not have found such a wonderful place without you and we appreciate your patience, understanding, and great eye along every step of the way. Buying a first home can be so nervewracking - but your expertise made it seamless and ENJOYABLE!!!...Thank you again for everything - we love our new home!!!"


""I want to thank you for doing such a good job... You have exquisite instincts, know your properties and clients well, and are skilled in the negotiation process." Susan, September 9, 2010"


"Our experience with Jan was fantastic. She was there to support our home search at every step from honing down our choices of properties online, to viewing homes in person and spending all day with us getting to know the community, to closing and beyond. Jan intuited our tastes immediately, and helped us find our dream home. --Molly and Bill"


"April 13, 2010: The perfect agent - excellent sense of our wants and needs, more than willing to go the extra mile --oodles of charm, style and grace, patience and wit. She will become a friend. Top qualities: Great Results , Personable , Expert"


"May 3, 2010: Just a short note to let you know how much Mindy and I are enjoying our new home in Chicago, and to thank you for the many ways in which you helped us reach that goal. We greatly appreciate not only everything you did as our real estate agent, but also your friendship, your guidance, and your calming influence when we were stressed. And neither one of us will ever forget your assistance way above and beyond the call of duty when you retrieved Maia and brought her to Chicago."


"2010: Even in today's more-than-difficult market, Jan got me the results in both price and timing that I needed. She is determined... intuitive... and dedicated to achieving the highest professional and personal performance. I simply cannot recommend Jan highly enough. Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity"


"March 22, 2010: I had the pleasure of working with Jan on both the purchase and eventual sale of my first home. Jan was great on both ends and always went above and beyond what I'd expect from a Real Estate Agent. She was instrumental in getting our house sold during the down market, and I know we couldn't have done it successfully without her diligence and expert advice! I'd work with Jan again in a heartbeat. Top qualities: Great Results , Personable , Expert"


"When we asked Jan to assist us in our search for housing options- and selling our 2-flat in Evanston- she helped us focus on products that met our future needs. My wife Barbara gained a new perspective about high-density lifestyle thanks to Jan's perspicacity and we now live in a premier address in Evanston's downtown. She is a creative, knowledgeable and enthusiastic friend and professional. I highly recommend Jan. Top qualities: Personable , Expert , Good Value"



"Jan's depth of knowledge of the local market, and her skill at both guiding me and listening to me, was invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend Jan."



"Fabulous experience working with Jan! She is so patient and very knowledgeable about the Evanston area. I would definitely work with her again."



"There's no body better than Jan Hazlett - she's the best. I would recommend her to anyone. Margi Hazlett is wonderful too and spent many lonely hours doing open houses on my transaction."



"Thank you Jan!!"



"Jan Hazlett has represented us as both buyers and sellers, and in both cases she goes above and beyond to advocate for her clients. Knowledgeable, professional, and even-keeled during the ups and downs of any transaction, Jan is treasure. We highly recommend her!"



"Jan was great, she knew what we were looking before seemingly we knew what we were looking for and found us a place that we both love. We would recommend her to anyone else in a heartbeat."



"Jan understood the market and provided the guidance and insights to purchase a home that had multiple offers. Jan's ability to coordinate the home inspection, procuring a mortgage, and obtaining the appropriate legal assistance was absolutely critical during the purchasing process. I would highly recommend Jan to anyone looking to purchase a new home in the city or in the suburbs."



"Jan did a fabulous job for me selling my home. In this economy she managed to guide me to pricing itright, and it sold within two weeks. Not only that, because I was involved in a serious health issue, shetook care of everything, and even managed to get me a higher price than we had hoped to get. I cannotsay enough good things about my experience! Thank you!"

"Jan was fantastic to work with. She always answered any question I had and took care of any and all problems while being both professional and reassuring. If Jan was not available she made sure Margi was and that was just great. Selling, buying and moving are never easy and very stressful. Both Jan and Margi made this transition as stress free as possible."
