"My family enlisted Janets services to guide our most recent relocation effort. We were operating within an extremely tight window of time. We needed to sell our home, buy a new one and get settled in a new community, all before the start of the upcoming school year for the sake of our children. We decided to go with Janet due to her impressive track record of time on the market and sales price for her clients. Needless to say, the former was short and the latter was high. Little did we know how much effort Janet would put forth to make our experience align with her statistics. We took for granted her casual statement, I will stage your home, inside as well as out. I thought this was a cliched phrase that realtors used to indicate placing a property on the MLS system. This was not the case with Janet. She informed us what internal projects needed to transpire in order to maximize our sales price, hired the servicemen to do the work and then proceeded to oversee the work. Simultaneous to this she gardened the front of our property herself, creating additional curb appeal we had never envisioned in all our years living in the home. Next, she literally brought in furnishings from her personal collection in order to give our house an entirely new look. My wife and I commented on numerous times after the staging that we liked the house so much we wished we didn't have to move. Well, we had to. Janet put the house on the market on schedule and three days later got a contract for a price higher than we asked.If your goal is to get the most for your home in your sale, then you are not going to find a better realtor than Janet. I can't recommend her enough for her professionalism, insight into the Chicagoland real estate market and creative bent in bringing out your homes true potential."
"I have known and worked with Janet for over twenty years now. My wife and I have purchased and sold properties with Janet. Janet is extremely personable and knowledgeable about her business. She has lead us to properties which were not only exceptional living spaces but also great investments. Those decisions have positively impacted our lives and we have always appreciated her hard work and tireless efforts. We have passed family members and friends along to Janet for those exact reasons. She is a straight shooter and I have always felt confident she has our best interest at heart."
"I have had the pleasure of working with Janet as both a buyer and a seller. When we began our search for a condo, Janet was able to listen to our list of wants and needs and found multiple properties for us to look at. She was patient and encouraging with us throughout our search, offering us insights to neighborhoods and properties that only a native Chicagoan could. Her expertise and knowledge led us to purchase a beautiful condo. She was helpful throughout the entire home purchase process and made us feel comfortable and confident in our decision. When we found out we were relocating five years later, we immediately contacted Janet. She developed a timeline for getting us on the market and set up multiple showings quickly. Within a week of listing, we received a contract. Janet's market knowledge, tenure in the real estate industry, and warm personality make it a pleasure to work with her whether you are buying or selling a property in Chicago."
"I am unbelievably lucky to have had Janet as my agent when I purchased my first-ever home. She is not only warm, generous, knowledgeable, and extremely personable, but she's also top-notch in her field: she guided me through complicated questions, was extremely giving of her time, and had an entire team of professionals ready to recommend. Janet gave me the names of an excellent mortgage lender, a lawyer, a home inspector... the whole cadre of people needed to make home-buying possible. Janet's the real deal and a true asset to Chicago. I cannot write enough wonderful things about her kindness, her breadth of knowledge, and her skills."
"Janet is incredibly reliable, responsive, and will be an outstanding advocate for you from day one. She literally got us every single item on our list in less than a month (in off season), which I would've thought was impossible. She's been doing this for over 20 years and it shows tremendously. I can't overstate her strengths in being extremely responsive, reliable, and your biggest advocate. She gets things done and she knows exactly where to go and how to approach every step. Last note: I wasn't sure which service to select in which she helped me with so I'll clarify it. She helped my husband and I find an apartment (which was a condo the owner was renting out). While she extremely knowledgeable in home searching, she also can help in finding rental properties. We can't wait to use her again when we're ready to buy!"
"Janet was wonderful on all counts. The sale was of a condo we owned as an investment in Chicago while we live elsewhere. There was a 1031 property exchange involved and we did not attend the closing. All of these complications were handled masterfully by Janet and the attorney she recommended. Any confusion on our part was treated professionally and with good humor by all involved. When the replacement of the building's roof was delayed, thus delaying agreed to painting, Janet kept the closing on schedule.
We give her the highest recommendation!"
"Janet Joseph came to us highly recommended by a co worker. She helped us find and close on a beautiful home after just a few months . We are absolutely thrilled! She was very knowledgeable about the area being a native of Chicago. She was extremely patient as we had changed our search area at the last minute and on the back and forth we were on offers. She provided us with the guidance and feedback to make a good decision and was extremely flexible to accommodating our schedule. She is kind, professional and very attentive. We highly recommend Janet and can't imagine a more positive experience!"

"Janet is an outstanding broker. She went above and beyond to help with the sale of my property. She held multiple open houses, recommended excellent contractors to finish needed work on the property for the sale and even went as far as to helping stage with some of her own art and (embarrassingly) help me pack books before I got around to it. I recommend her without reservations."

"Janet did an amazingly good job. Going well above and beyond to complete the transaction. She showed a good understanding of what needed to be done and went so far as to deliver the lease to me in Lake Forest to get my signature. She stayed with the transaction until the lessor agreed to the deal. Great follow through. Also Janet is a delightful person to deal with. Janet is a very strong and professional realtor."
"I wish Janet Joseph was the real estate agent on every deal. She is so incredibly thorough, her contracts are always filled out correctly with everyones contact information, and she always responds to me immediately with exactly what I ask for in a very short time because she usually has her act together and already has the information. She is awesome."
