Clients are saying:
"Janelle is a phenomenal broker and we would not hesitate to work with her again; in fact, I think we would ONLY ever work with her again. Here's to hoping she never retires!
Janelle is incredibly strategic and always thinking three steps ahead. She prepared us for every eventuality in selling our old condo and purchasing a new one. She helped us weigh the pros and cons of all our options, so that we could make well-reasoned and informed decisions. When we ran into challenges with our sale, it put us at ease to know that Janelle was with us every step of the way, offering her expert counsel and full attention. Because she is so hands-on and responsive, she made us feel as though we were her only clients (which we knew was definitely not the case!).
On top of all this, she is just such a wonderful, fun, and thoughtful person. What a pleasure it was to work with her!"
