Serving: Kansas City Areas
Jan has lived and worked in Johnson County for almost 30 years. She has worked as a residential real estate professional for the past 16 years. Jan loves being a part of a full-service team where all of the strengths of the team can be marshaled to give a client the best possible real estate experience. She also feels blessed to be working with Keller Williams Realty, an agency that shares her philosophy that ... every truly successful negotiation needs to be win-win.
“The devil is in the details” is a saying that is certainly applicable to a 21st century real estate transaction. Jan’s commitment to sweating the details for her clients – so that they don’t have to – is the difference between an unpleasant, frustrating real estate experience and one that is efficient, rewarding and even fun.
Jan’s clients tell her that she has a “gift for listening.” “I don’t see how I can achieve the best results for my clients if I’ve presumed to have all the answers in advance,” she said. Instead, Jan is devoted to listening first, and THEN developing a strategy and a plan together to achieve her client’s objectives.
One of Jan’s most rewarding experiences is working with first-time home-buyers; helping them build financial security while at the same time partnering with them to uncover that first dream home. “I really enjoy working the buyer’s side of the transaction,” Jan says. “Yes, it is very time consuming, but there is nothing I do professionally that is more satisfying than helping someone find a place to call home.”
When not working with her clients, Jan leads women’s Bible studies for her church and also leads creative teams, designing environments and visual arts elements to enrich the weekly worship service experience. Jan and her husband, Doug, enjoy travelling and spending time with their incredible grandkids.
