I chose Janice not only because her numbers showed that I could get a lot more money for my property than all the other agents were suggesting but also because she was very confident in being able to deliver on her research and knowledge of the market. She is very fast. If you are ready to sell or buy, then she should be your agent. If you're on the fence, then call her, she will provide you with all the tools and guidance needed to get you started. She will negotiate to get you the best deal possible for you and will provide knowledgeable guidance throughout. Her handyman and staging teams will spruce up your place in no time and get it ready for m...— Richard P.
Found Janice on Yelp and we met around Feb. In retrospect, I wish we met her sooner. She said, just give me the keys and "I will take care of everything", music to my ears and she totally lived up to it. The next time we saw the property, it was renovated with the agreed upon changes for a small price. By the way, she never even asked for the renovation payment until I brought it up as we were nearing the close of escrow. It's rare to have mutual trust these days where a person's word is good as gold. We closed on 5/15/2017 at a very competitive price All this was accomplished with tenants in place in the downstairs unit. Janice has an impressive tr...— Ching N.
My sister and I contacted Janice in summer of 2017 to let her know we needed help with selling our parent's house in the sunset. She was super helpful and most importantly patient. We explained that our parents were old and needed time to prepare. Janice understood and didn't rush us at all. She didn't try to push things along in hopes of selling the house as soon as possible. She understood and was extremely patient with us and most importantly our parents. Fast forward to 2018 when my parents were finally ready. We gave her a call and she went into action! She pretty much took care of all the planning and scheduling and paperwork. She made things ...— Mark S.
I have worked with Janice both as a buyer's agent and more recently as a seller's agent. Janice Lee is an absolutely outstanding seller's agent. I hired Janice's services to sell a complicated tenancy sale in San Francisco and Janice navigated the sale to close with utmost professionalism and diligence. She's fact based and supports all her information with actual data and comps as opposed to telling a seller some arbitrary number. Her attention to detail and diligence with disclosures is bar none and we felt very comfortable working with her knowing that she has our back. Despite being a top agent, she is humble and doesn't skimp on hard work. She'...— Sugar P.
We have partnered with Janice three times, when we bought our home in 2009; when we sold that home in 2021; and again when we bought our new home in 2021. Janice is a pro with diverse experience in buying and selling different types of properties in multiple communities. She is super fast. If you only have hours to get an offer in, Janice can talk you through the process and provide her input, but the biggest reason to choose Janice is that she listens to you, the client, and executes quickly. We have had great success buying and listing with Janice and she overcomes all obstacles to get the deal done right and on time. Janice works incredibly hard ...— Marcel W.
My wife and I were referred to Janice by a broker we trusted as she said Janice was the best person to help us sell our home in the peninsula and she truly was. She took the time needed to walk us through the process and what we needed to do to get the house ready. Once we listed the house, we were in contract with a buyer in less than six days. I could not say enough great things about Janice and I recommend her highly for anyone looking to buy or sell in the Peninsula. Our house was just outside SF in the Daly City area. Thank you Janice.— Eddie G.
Janice Lee is an expert in her field. You will find no better agent for a San Francisco transaction. Janice helped my family navigate a complicated transaction quickly, smoothly, and without a single hitch. She got my family top dollar for our property, 300K over asking in under two weeks' time. Every piece of Janice's advice, from what to repair and how, to pricing, to timing, to staging, was flawless. She is highly effective, easy to work with, patient and nice! You will not go wrong with Janice on your team.— Seller
Energetic, knowledgeable, thoroughly precise, she practically predicted how the whole deal will go down. Janice met me for 20 minutes at my SF condo, after my yelp investigation, I gave her the keys. The rest is history. She sold my condo 11 % over the asking price, managed the renovations, dealt with few minor issues with HOA. in about 1.5 month (from key exchange to closing). I am eagerly impressed. My friends, trust Yelp, you always win! Best wishes for her, a top sales professional!— Sun L.
Janice was the agent who helped my wife and me to sell a condo and buy a house at the same time when the market was so unpredictable and competitive in September. She has very solid connections in the industry and was extremely helpful, transparent, and reliable throughout the whole process. Kudos to her, the entire process was seamless! We really appreciate her help and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top real estate agent in the bay area.— Seller
Just finished closing the sell of our home. Janice was wonderful to work with and extremely helpful. She listened to our needs and helped arrange for contractor and staging for the home. She has a lot of experience and helped us understand the documents and process. She handled the negotiations and helped us get a higher sale price. A wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her if you are selling or purchasing a home.— Charles K.
Janice listed one of my property for sale, and in 8-9 business days escrow closed incredible! It was not expected to be this fast and so smooth especially this was done in the middle of Christmas and New Year's weeks. Let's just say both the buyer and seller are happy. Janice really knows what she is doing and I definitely will look to her again for renting and selling.— Paul C.
Janice did a great job selling our condo in San Francisco above our asking price. She is wonderful to work with, and is professional, honest, determined, focused, energetic and keeps you informed along the way of progress and process. I strongly recommend her. She is truly terrific!— Olivia D.
For context, we worked with Janice while sheltering-in-place, sometime during last June/July. We loved working with Janice and we would absolutely recommend her to any friend who is looking to purchase a home. Here are some of the reasons why: She's approachable, super responsive, and resourceful. She keeps a finger on how hot which San Francisco neighborhoods are at the moment. She can come up with estimated values and when you actually look at the comps, it's pretty much in line with what she tells you to expect. If you're looking at a home and you have questions about how much it would cost to renovate it (break down a wall, add another room, etc...— Buyer
I've worked with Janice twice now: once to help me get my first home in San Francisco in 2018, and again for a home to start a family in San Bruno in 2020. Janice has been incredible to work with in both cases. She's incredibly responsive, with a turnaround time of less than an hour in most cases. She's insightful and learns how to predict your dream home quickly; both times I've bought were ultimately recommendations of hers, and they came after only attending 3-4 open houses with her. Her experience with remodeling for a new look or for adding additional dwelling units is extremely helpful as you go forward, and lends to her ability to immediately...— Buyer
I only wish there were 10 stars to give Janice Lee. At the height of COVID-19, she took us from knowing very little about the market to seeing a dozen properties inside 15 days. We ended up purchasing our dream property with everything our hearts desired. Her expertise and contacts are unmatched. For years, we had assumed it wasn't possible to buy a home in SF because things were too competitive and it was too hard to get our money's worth. We appreciated Janice's availability, constant attention, deep knowledge of neighborhoods in and around SF and her willingness to educate us. There wasn't pressure to act and she helped us turn down several promi...— Buyer
Janice helped my boyfriend and me buy our dream home in San Mateo! She guided us through the entire process starting from sitting down with us to understand exactly all the specifications we were looking for in a house. Then, she took us out to multiple open houses, where she explained different layouts, traffic patterns, schools, and renovation needs. She also had good relationships with the sellers' agents and was able to give us helpful information. When we were ready to put in offers, she gave us good advice about not bidding too high but finding the right number that would be acceptable to the sellers. We were accepted on our 3rd offer, and we ...— Alice C.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home through Janice and everything went smoothly! Janice came in highly recommended by my friends who recently purchased a home through her and I'm glad that I made the right decision going with her. She helped us come on top over multiple offers and was transparent about everything throughout the entire process. She's very energetic, has a great sense of humor and is quick at responding to your emails and texts, which is really important when you're trying to compete in this crazy market. Go with Janice and you won't regret it!— Elisha K.
Janice is a phenomenal real estate agent. She was instrumental in getting us our first house together. She does her research and helped us come on top in winning over the multiple offers. She walked my wife and I through the entire process and always answered my hundreds of questions quickly. She will take care of you and make sure she is completely on top of everything. We had to expedite the closure process since we were going out of the country. With that in mind, Janice made sure everything was followed up on and executed in a timely manner. We highly recommend!— Jeff L.
Janice helped my husband and I purchase our first home in Pacifica and we couldn't be happier with the process and final result. Janice is an expert in the Bay Area housing market and was absolutely wonderful to work with. She took the time to answer all our questions thoroughly and was immediately responsive whenever we reached out. We felt prepared and comfortable through out the buying process. I strongly recommend working with Janice if you are looking to buy in the area.— Buyer
Janice is awesome. She helped us to shop for and close a condo in the city. She is honest, experienced and her team is very quick and responsive. Shopping for a house can be stressful. She guided us through every step of the buying process and was always there to give advice. She was great to jam with on what can be done with the place after the purchase and has a great network if you need insurance, contractors, etc.— Buyer
Not being very knowledgeable about real estate in the bay area, I was lucky to be referred to Janice, who in a very short time, explained to me the keys to the home buying process. Her knowledge and guidance made it possible for me to find my home of choice within a very short time window. In addition, she also referred me to a top-notch loan agent who is very professional, extremely helpful, and easy to work with.— Buyer
Janice was very instrumental in helping us find our home. We met her at a house she was showing, and just liked her style. She was always available, easy to work with, answered all our 8000 questions. All said and done, this lady knows her stuff! Would highly recommend.— Lulu B.
