As a 1st-time home buyer, I was pretty nervous about the home-buying process, but Janet walked me through everything, answering all of my questions and making me feel at ease. Janet was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods I was interested in, and she had many suggestions for new neighborhoods, based on my preferences. Once I found a house, she helped me find local vendors to help with some of the work I wanted to do. Overall, she guided me step-by-step throughout the process, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home.

I wasn't even seriously looking for a new home. One Sunday, just for fun, my parents and I went to look at a mid-century modern home in Land Park. Afterward, we stopped by a couple other open houses, just to see what they were like. That's where we met Janet. Little did I know during our brief encounter that afternoon that she would find me the perfect new home and end up selling my old one for $5,000 over asking. Working with Janet was a truly excellent experience. Janet took care of everything, both in the repairs and sale of my old home and the purchase of my new home. And, if something came up to cause a wrinkle in the overall plan, she was there to smooth it out immediately. Janet is truly excellent!

Janet Carlson was very professional. Janet Carlson was always quick to get back to us and explain the details of this purchase. This purchase was for our daughter June (35 years old )and our granddaughter Stella (6 years old). June is a single mother and is very strong minded. She is not always easy to work with, but Janet Carlson and June never had any issues. Janet Carlson made sure that all others involved in this purchase was on the same page with us. All parts of this purchase occurred just as Janet Carlson told us they would. Every part of tho\is purchase was on time.

We were immediately sure that Janet Carlson was the right agent for us. She did some research before we even met her for the first time, and already had a list of potential options for us when we walked in the door. She had considerable knowledge about options all over Sacramento, and really helped us decide on a location we preferred. She was very willing to spend long days looking at houses, even on some of the hottest days of the year. Janet was patient and accepting of our requests, and always available to answer our questions, even late at night. She made it easy for us to navigate all the paperwork, which was all new to us as first-time home buyer, and she made sure that all our requests for repairs were met in a timely fashion. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a house in Sacramento.

We have bought and sold more than a dozen investment properties over the past 25 years, most of them in Sacramento. Working with Janet Carlson has been the best real estate experience we have ever had. This year, we were ready to sell two homes in the area, and we interviewed several Sacramento brokers. When we met Janet, we knew she was the perfect realtor for us. Our first conversation was personable, dynamic, and informative. We met at each property so that she could not only see the neighborhood, house, and landscape, but she could see the work already underway. She knew what would bring the house to the market at its best, and gave valuable suggestions to that effect. We met later in her office to explain some of the complications of our joint ownership with a partner who lived in a foreign country. We knew from previous experience that the escrow would need to accommodate requirements of separate legal entities, and their differing status and taxation; and also the issue of an overseas owner. She understood each issue, made note, and reassured us that, if needed, Lyon had access to a legal team to review problems that might arise. As far as we know, no problems occurred; but that may have been because of Janet's clear communication of every detail with an experienced and astute escrow officer. We ourselves were out of the country when the houses were prepared for sale, and during the rehab, sales campaign, sale, contracts, inspections, and negotiations. We arrived home in time only to sign documents for the close. Janet handled absolutely everything during the time we were out of the country, including managing the various contractors who worked on the houses. Email was our preferred method of communication because it is so easy to revisit and review, and to track separate issues. Not a detail was overlooked, and everything was clearly communicated. Her daily updates were thorough, on point and personable. Janet was completely up-to-speed on every step of the way. We are happy to celebrate the sale of TWO houses at the same time. Janet made it happen!

I have bought and sold a home with Janet Carlson within the last year. She was always accessible to fix problems or answer all the questions I had during each process. Both transactions were quick, efficient and professional. Buying or selling a home, for most of us, will be the largest financial transactions of our lives. You want someone who knows what they're doing. Someone who knows Sacramento's neighborhoods. Someone experienced who has the industry contacts that will ensure timely completion of all phases of your transaction. Someone who will be YOUR advocate, not someone else's. Janet Carlson meets and exceeds that standard.

Janet is fantastic. She is extremely reliable, responsive, and has been a trusted agent for our family for many transactions in the Sacramento area. Janet is thorough, diligent, and always keeps her client's best interest in mind as she interacts with other parties. She made my selling transaction smooth, efficient, and positive; I would not hesitate to recommend Janet to anyone who is looking for an agent. Smooth, efficient, and thorough - all things I expected from an agent.
