SFResidence Real Estate Testimonials
In July I purchased my first home. Janis Stone was
referred to me by Adele Laurence, the property manager at my apartment
building. Adele told me Janis was very experienced, would make the process
simple and was simply the best realtor she knew of in San Francisco. Adele
was right! Janis made what could have been a very overwhelming and stressful
process, simple and virtually stress free. She worked closely with my
mortgage broker and educated me through the whole process. Our visits
to properties were enjoyable and I really appreciated and trusted her
because of her knowledge and experience which was evident in every step
of the process. She made the closing simple and pain free and I absolutely
love my new home. I would refer Janis to friends and family.
"Throughout the entire process you were efficient,
candid and energetic. What made your sale effort special was the extraordinary
effort you put out. Furthermore your effort at the time of the closing,
which was done by long distance, with me on the road, was truly impressive.
As far as I am concerned your efforts deserve an A+!"

and I found you to be very patient. You invested the time and
effort to get to know us and the type of house we desired.
We were very impressed with your professionalism and knowledge
of the market. Thank god we found it!"
Douglas and Lydia Shorenstein
The Shorenstein Company
combines a keen business sense with an analytical mind and
high intellect, which makes her an excellent problem solver.
She is also most skillful in dealing with people. I doubt that
Janis has "can't" in her vocabulary. She has the will-and she
always finds a way! A great salesperson who meets or exceeds
all my criteria (see pages 177-185)."
Raymond I. Brown
Co-author of "Home Buying for Dummies" and "Home Selling for Dummies"
more than earned our respect and admiration. She negotiated
a very complicated sale, even advising us that our intended
offer was too high. She was aggressively loyal to us, and yet
was diplomatic and tactful with other parties.she always sidestepped
temperamental egos and soothed ruffled feathers... Our recommendation
of Janis Stone is without reservation."

gave Janis my list of requirements on Wednesday and by Saturday
she had a list of places for us to see. Imagine my surprise
when the first place we visited turned out to be my dream home.
I walked in the front door and within 3 minutes had decided
that this was the place I wanted. Janis, being the ultimate
in professionals, insisted that we visit some of the other
places on her list so that I could be certain that my decision
was correct. Later that day my offer was submitted to the owners
and within three days the deal was sealed. I had heard so many "horror" stories
from other buyers about trying to find the "right" home
in San Francisco before I decided to purchase a home that I
almost didn't want to start the process. Thank goodness I had
someone like Janis to guide me. It was a pleasant experience
from start to finish and for this alone I will be eternally
grateful to Janis. I'm also grateful because I have been able
to live in my dream home in San Francisco."
