Janet Elliot is totaly commited to her clients! We got to know her by a friend's sugestion. Since we were moving from Florida and didn't know the area, she did everything she could to show us the best properties in the best areas, within our price range. She is honest and hardworking, and knows the area well. We felt that we were in good hands! Karinne and Kristian Armbrust

Janet did an absolutely fantastic job in selling our home. She was so great for so many reasons but we loved her most for 1) her hard work - she was excellent at taking the time to go through the due diligence needed to make a smart decision about what sales price we should list our house 2) her instinct in knowing what it would take to sell a home quickly - she knew the house needed a bit of staging and we trusted her judgment and as a result, we received 2 full-price and 1 over asking price offer within 24 hours of listing the home!, 3) her professionalism - she knew how to set realistic expectations for us, dealt with all parties professionally (which was key in negotiating!) and always did what she said she was going to do 4) her kindness - she was such a pleasure to work with! Selling a home is hard work and is certainly a team effort - she was the perfect partner for us and turned the experience into a great one. We highly recommend her!

I've worked with Janet on several transactions as a home inspector, and her clients always seem very happy with her service. I can say she is easy to work with and knows what she is doing. Keep up the good work!

We started our house hunting without a relator and met Janet at one of the houses that I looked at the first weekend of our search. We decided by the second weekend that we couldn't do this on our own and we needed help! Of the 4 relator's that I meet the first weekend when I was on my own, Janet was by far the most approachable, friendly and genuine. We're buying a house to rent out to my son and his family and our time frame was VERY short as they had a baby due in 1 month!! Janet got our list of "must haves" and we found the perfect house in about 1 week. We really appreciate the time she spent with us during the hunt for the house and also during all the steps leading up to the closing. I highly recommend Janet!

Janet did a great job determining the type of house we were seeking, after viewing just a few homes. She did not waste a lot of time showing homes that did not meet our needs. We only had a weekend for her to learn what we were seeking. We worked together in a long-distance fashion as our family was not physically present in the region where we were planning to buy. She was very responsive to our phone, email and text inquiries. The only area for opportunity (my quality rating of 3)perhaps was due to both of our reliance on the convenience of text and email. There were a couple of instances where I misunderstood her message/intent due to how I interpreted written correspondence. In those instances things were quickly cleared up during phone conversations. Ultimately she ended up saving us money, as we planned to make an initial offer greater than what we settled on.

Even though this review is for the most part positive, I just wanted to offer some clarification because I was not given 5 stars. I do my best to accommodate all of my clients by communicating via text/email or by phone as they desire. However, when trying to purchase a home, it is often critical to have some direct conversation. Sometimes it is hard to get a sense of what is most important to a client without some lengthy and in depth communication. I also felt that this client did not have the smoothest closing and unfortunately I had no control over it. The closing attorney showed up for the closing over an hour late and the lender did not complete the loan on time. We closed on the correct day but a lot of stress was caused by closing about 6 hours later than planned. I strive to prevent these types of issues but sometimes it is just not possible to do so.
Janet was recommended to us by friends of ours. We are recent transplants to the Atlanta area and were looking to purchase a home. Janet was very knowledgeable about the areas we were focusing on, helpful in narrowing down our choices, was available on a short notice when we needed her and helped us thru the whole process of offer, inspection and closing. She did a wonderful job for us and we are very happy that we had her as our agent throughout the process.

I worked with Janet on the purchase of my first home. She was extremely professional thoughtful and helpful in navigating the process from offer through closing. She has also been a great help with some post-closing questions that I have had. Woudl highly reccomend.

She was very helpful in providing step by step guidance and advice to first time home buyers like us. She had even provided us help with regards to Closing attorneys, Lenders, Home Inspectors and the whole nine yards in the "joys" of home ownership. Relationship with her does not close with your closing.

Janet is very knowledgeable, patient, and works hard for client behind the scenes. She is interested in making clients find their dream homes instead of just selling homes. Janet helped us buy two homes and during the second home purchase I interviewed lots of agents but none came close to match her level of dedication.

My wife and I had lived in our home for 33 years, so we were not experienced home sellers. We ran into Janet when she was showing a house and we were so impressed that we decided to use her as our Agent. She helped us sell our home - in less than a day - and find a new home where we are very happy. She works so hard to get things right and to make it as easy and uncomplicated as possible for her clients. She seems to forget nothing and has incredible focus and dedication to her clients. In a word, we both thought Janet did a wonderful job for us. We could not be higher on her.

My wife and I recently worked with Janet for both a home sale and purchase. Janet is an experienced pro who knows how to balance patience and persistence with sound advice and guidance. We were quickly successful on both fronts and love our new home. An added bonus - she has a great sense of humor and is fun to work with. Highly recommended.

My wife and I just purchased our third house. A house we are VERY, VERY happy with. A house we would have never have gotten without the skills of Janet Elliott. Professional, always realistic in her advice, hardworking, informed and fun to work with. In this hot sellers market, she really made things happen for us. Found our new house and sold our old house - what a breeze that was. "The Best" may seem like an over the top claim - but in this case, it's well deserved. Thanks Janet!

We were looking to move to Georgia during a peak real estate season. After looking at about 30 houses, we returned home while Janet continued to look and keep us informed. We bought our house sight-unseen based on her review of it. She thought it was perfect for us and it is! She listened to what we wanted and found it for us.
