“We were very fortunate to select Jan as our realtor. When getting ready to list a home you really want someone who will go the extra mile in making things run smoothly all the way to the close, along with getting the best price for your property. Many realtors are just looking to get the listing enticing you with unrealistic valuations, knowing the price will need to be lowered once it becomes obvious that the property is not receiving offers or
showings. Jan took us through the comparisons, explained the attributes with our property that would make a difference and told us she would work diligently every day in marketing our property. She is a rare person who responds immediately to any questions or issues. Both calls, emails and texts were always returned with no time loss – a rare find in today’s busy world. She even went out of her way to add touches to the property that made it show perfectly at her own expense. The result: we were able to find multiple buyers within a week of listing and all offers were above our asking price and exceeded any similar units that had sold in our development. I give FIVE STARS to Jan for all her work. We could not have asked for more!

Hi, my name is Nancy. I want to tell you some of my experiences about selling a house with Jan Newell as my Realtor. My husband and I met Jan about 4 years ago when she was having an open house in the Pacific Beach area. We knew by the way she listened to our goals of finding a property she would be putting her best foot forward. We already liked Jan when we found out she enjoyed being out in nature. As it turned out we decided not to buy at that time, but Jan stayed in touch over the years through mailings and emails. Many were fun little seasonal offers and invites, all before COVID 19 hit.
In 2020 my dad passed away and Jan Newell was the first person I thought of to help me sell his home. Jan helped me get started by meeting me before the first box was packed. She gave me some of her contacts that came highly recommended by her team. It truly was a life saver as I was overwhelmed with the entire process. It took over 6 months, and during that time I knew Jan was not about the sell, but about the people, "her people" as she would
tell me. She wanted the best outcome for me as the Trustee of the estate and the buyers of this unique piece of property. I grew up in this house and Jan would tell the story to prospective buyers as they came through the house. Jan wanted to meet her buyers and their agents, making a personal contact as much as she could. This meant so much to me, and another aspect of going the extra mile for "her people". If you want someone who cares, and I think we
all want that, then Jan Newell is your person.

“I wish to acknowledge my sincere gratitude to Jan Newell, Real Estate agent extraordinaire, for the outstanding assistance, guidance and peace of mind that she provided me during a difficult time.
Jan Newell is :
• the most helpful real estate agent I have ever worked with during 40+ years of real estate transactions.
• technically competent and experienced.
• a no-nonsense, high energy lady with excellent common sense and advice.

Jan and I collaborated on all aspects of the preparation and sale of a complex Trust transaction for my elderly brother. I would not hesitate to utilize Jan's services again in the San Diego area.”

It was an honor to work with such an incredible agent who helped me find the right fit of a home during a very limited inventory and stressful time. Jan was always responsive to my needs and had a dedicated work ethic to help me get the perfect home. I have worked with other agents in the past but none of them compared to Jan's professionalism, responsiveness and work ethic. Jan was always available to jump on any property immediately that came onto the market that fit my check list. She showed me several properties over the course of many months until I finally found the right fit. Jan was able to negotiate a deal that worked in my price range and get me the right home during a competitive market with limited inventory. I highly recommend Jan Newell to help you find your future home. I truly could not have asked for a better agent.

“Jan was a superior real estate agent! We thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She is smart and kind, and goes above and beyond what we expected, especially as first time home buyers. She made the whole process seamless and easy. She returns emails and calls immediately, and has many resources at her disposal. It can be a very daunting task to purchase a home, but when there is someone there helping you throughout, and giving you references (for home inspection, lock changes, homeowner's insurance, etc.), everything seems much more manageable. Thank you Jan! We would happily refer you to anyone if they were looking to buy or sell a home.”

I have worked with many great agents in my time, but Jan is heads above on so many levels. She helped me sell and also buy in the San Diego metro area. Some of the things I appreciated so much: Jan is all about listening to her clients and then makes sure she is representing their exact needs. She was incredibly helpful during a very stressful time by remaining calm and reassuring every step the of the way. Jan is also a fantastic communicator! We had no misunderstandings whatsoever (which can so easily happen when the process is moving quickly). She is very knowledgeable about the SD area and the current market trends I recommend Jan without hesitation, you won't be disappointed

Jan was a wonderful agent in every way. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and supportive throughout the sometimes daunting house hunting process in the San Diego area. Low inventory and lots of competition were stressful but Jan was reassuring, offering pep talks and strategies to counteract these obstacles. Once we found the house, she helped make the purchase smooth and quick, and provided lots of helpful information and advice. I recommend Jan very highly

Ivianna C.

Jan was a wonderful and helpful agent along the whole process that was pretty unknown to me. I am very grateful I met her. She guided me step by step on the process and was very efficient on preparing all documentation necessary. She had excellent communication with the selling agent what made everything easier for me. I really felt that I could trust her and I was totally right

Paul S.

Jan was an incredible partner during our entire home shopping/ buying process. She found a house she knew we'd love and took us to see it even before it officially came on the market. We are moving from out of town and she's been absolutely incredible with helping us with things like working with our inspector, recommending local vendors and giving us advice on escrow, appraisals and loans. She is very detailed oriented, responsive and a great advocate throughout the whole process- just what you'd want in an agent. We would highly recommend Jan to anyone!

Sara C.

Working with Jan was such a pleasure! I had a limited budget, but she helped this first-time buyer feel confident and optimistic, and the result was the perfect home! I would recommend Jan to anyone in the real estate market. She is a lovely person and a fantastic realtor -- she can really hone in on your needs and make the whole process easier
