Sometimes things happen in different ways , my wife and I had just went through a total loss house fire. We did not even know what our settlement was going to be when we met Janice Allen at an open house . She was helpful and sympathetic to our situation. Having not bought a house in 38 years, we were very overwhelmed with the housing market in 2022. Janice sent us houses to look at through our email that fit the checklist we had given her. There was no pressure or unwanted calls ever. If we saw a house whether it was from her company or others she would arrange a visit as soon as possible, usually the same day. Janice would have all relevant information and was insightful to what the market was doing. My wife and I looked at a few houses, with no pressure to buy from Janice. None of those houses seemed like home. On a Saturday morning a property popped up on my phone that was not what we were looking for, but intrigued us. We called Janice and she arranged for us to see it just hours later. When my wife and I stepped into this house it felt like" home ". Janice had all the appropriate info on the house . We were able to put together an offer before we left the house. It was accepted before we even got home. Janice helped us get through the closing process. I would recommend Janice Allen to anyone looking for a real estate agent . She went above and beyond to get us into our new residence. We would consider her more than just our agent but also a friend ."Jim & Sue
Janice Allen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the market and home buying process. Very patient with me and my wife as first time home buyers. Took time and effort to educate us about home buying and never left any mystery at all as to what our next step was. We only had to look at two houses to get an offer accepted (was better than what I expected), which was very appreciated because we both work full time and didn't have a lot of free time to put into this process. It was challenging moving to Michigan from out of state because we did not have the opportunity to look at any houses in-person, but Janice did a stellar job conducting the tours virtually and accommodating additional visits for our family members to see the house in-person. If you're looking for someone who is knowledgeable, accommodating, punctual, who goes the extra mile (and above all else, has integrity which you don't often see with realtors), I highly recommend Janice.
Janice is the absolute BEST! I can't put into words how appreciative my husband and I are of her. She has truly made our home selling process painless. We were in the midst of an out of state home purchase when we decided it was time to list our MI home. We were dreading adding more to our plate but Janice made everything so seamless and fun! From the very first meeting she has been so responsive and supportive and we immediately knew she was someone we could trust to work in our best interest. Her professionalism, marketing tools, sales tools and attention to detail are all top notch. By far the best realtor we've ever worked with. We are honestly sad our home sold so quick because we love working with Janice that much. Whether you are buying/selling your 1st home or your 4th, Janice is your girl!
Janice is awesome! We were first time homebuyers and she took the time to explain the whole process to us. She was also very quick to reply and get us in to see homes. We were able to beat out several other offers and get ours accepted the same day we put it in. She definitely has the experience you want in a realtor and knows the tricks of the trade to get your offer accepted.Ryan & Emily
Janice was great to work with! The complications of our family ownership didn't slow her down at all. We had already been dropped by 2 realtors. I am very grateful to Janice for her positive attitude and getting the job done.
Janice Allen is a realtor who is dedicated to excellence in the process. I was so impressed with her listing of my house; it made me want to buy it myself! Through the entire process I could tell that she was working to get the best result for us! Job very well done! I recommend Janice Allen.
Janice is the best! My wife and I just purchased our first home with Janice's help and she walked us through the entire process. She answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable while navigating through the home-buying process. When it came time to put in offers, Janice was smart and competitive with our offer and found a way to make us stand out. If you need a realtor, go with Janice Allen!!
Janice was extremely professional and FUN! She worked tirelessly to ensure that not just one, but TWO home sales were navigated and overseen with kindness, timeliness, professionalism and patience. We felt like a priority every day, and were treated with such kindness. Janice went above and beyond to take on every little task on our behalf so we could focus on the moves and preparation. Could not ask for a better partner in this journey. We love Janice!Rick & Cindy Slater (Seller)
The market was working itself into a frenzy when we began looking for the right home. We worked with several agents who were mostly looking to see what our top dollar was and wanting us to quickly jump into bidding war against other buyers. These agents really didn't get to know what we were looking for and what our goals were...we didn't sign on with them. We found Janice via a good rating and called her to show us some homes. We found Janice as very likable and she (without being pushy) worked to understand what we were looking for from our prospective. When we finally found something that interested us and did our research & decided to make a fair bid. When we discussed this with Janice she responded by discussing a proposed strategy on how to frame our offer so that we were comfortable with the results. After we digested what she proposed, we decided to go with her strategy and we signed the offer. We found that Janice was a good student of the market and had a good handle on her craft.
Janice went above and beyond to make sure our bid was accepted and our house was sold. She was always willing to do whatever it took to help us with everything, from scheduling to relieving our anxiety. Would 100% work with her again, and recommend to anyone thinking about buying or selling.
"After firing our old realtor, we found Janice. Instantly there was a difference. She sent us dozens of listing, answered the phone whenever we needed her, she wasn't afraid about being honest and provided great information. We will use her for all of our realtor needs and will recommend her to anyone and everyone."
Janice was excellent to work with. I gave her a pretty specific criteria on what I was looking for as a first time home buyer and she worked well making sure I found a house that fit it!!! She was fast to respond and quick to getting me into see a house because of the hot market we are currently in. She was also great when asking her for referrals!! (Lenders, contractors, etc…) high recommend her and will definitely be using her again if needed!!!

Janice is an amazing person! She's passionate, great at listening, and very kind! You're in good hands with her!Elyse H.
I was a first time homebuyer working with a down payment assistance program and a very tight budget in a seller's market. There were very few homes on the market in my price range and even fewer in the location I was targeting. I followed Janice's recommendations when it came to offers & negotiations and would probably still be looking had I not. She very much had my best interests in mind
Janice is a professional she knows the market and can answer all your questions.Michael & Mary Cherron
What I can say about Janice Allen is that you’ll never meet a brighter light, feel in more compassionate hands, and hear a better laugh. I enjoyed every aspect of our time together, and I can recommend her highly, in terms of integrity and gritty hard work.Kate M.
Janice is wonderful to work with, and very attentive to detail!Matt T.
Janice at Jaqua dotted the i and crossed the t for all details of the transaction. I entrusted her for sale of a secondary property of mine while out of state. It was a quick sale. Presentation of property sale was top notch..what does this mean? Great marketing beforehand equaled a high traffic open house. From open to close the transaction was through in less than 3 weeks. She answered every phone call. I recommend her.
