Janice made the home buyer process super easy. With my hectic work schedule and an infant at home, without Janice I do not think I would have been able to complete the process. When a few items needed attention prior to completing the appraisal process, Janice jumped in and took care of everything! In the end, the house closed on time with no problems. It was the smoothest house purchase I have ever encountered. I will definitely use Janice again in the future and will recommend her to others looking to buy or sell a home.

We were incredibly fortunate to have Janice Pestana as our broker to sell our home. Our deal was complicated and a speedy sale was vital. Janice was able to move things along and find creative solutions to issues that came up. I believe the deal would not have been successful without her expertise. She is a skilled broker and a kind and caring individual

— Laura A.

We happened upon Janice while inquiring online about a house we were interested in. Though we didn't buy that one, we were so impressed with Janice that we decided to use her exclusively moving forward. From that day forward Janice was with us every step of the way. She was quick to steer us from hidden problems and in the end we couldn't be happier with the house we chose. I'm confident you'll be just as happy.

— Ian Feldt

This is my first experience with Janice Pestana and her assistant Adriana. With their help and expertise we were able to find a home in one day. The home exceeded expectations as verified by the Appraisal. Janice was easy to work with, responded to all questions immediately via text or email and negotiated with the seller until we were satisfied with the final price and conditions. Escrow went smoothly without a glitch. We look forward to working with Janice again in the future.

— Maryann Loverro

What a pleasure to work with Janice. She is a rock and helped keep my needs on both selling my home and buying a new one in focus and a top priority. She was always positive and still realistic about the market and what I needed for myself and kids. She was more than willing to work with my crazy schedule, budget and time frame. She goes above and beyond. I love my home!! I can't believe we pulled it off!

— Ruthann Lentz

When my husband and I embarked upon buying our first house, we had no idea just how crazy the Portland market would be. Janice was with us every step of the way, answering texts and emails at crazy hours, exploring off-market options, and accompanying us to nearly all of the 60+ houses we saw over our five month journey. She understood exactly what we were looking for and was such a fantastic advocate; she honestly made us feel like we were her only clients. Ultimately, she helped land us the perfect home in Concordia. For such a complicated process (especially for first-timers), Janice made navigating everything so easy. We couldn’t have been happier with her, and are so appreciative of all of the time and effort she put into finding us our wonderful home.

— Gia Zopatti

My experience with Janice is always positive. She is kind. She is easy to work with and always on top of her clients needs as a realtor. Janice is a good person. She cares about others and works hard to give all of her clients her very best. It is a pleasure to be able to work with Janice in helping clients find great homes.

— John

I have worked with Janice professionally as a collegue and am continually impressed with her ability to find her clients their "perfect" home. She listens to the needs of her clients and makes it her mission to find a home that embodies those needs. She negotiates very well and her communication skills are top notch. I have the utmost confidence her referring her clients because she makes what can be a very stressful process very enjoyable and she works HARD!!

— Amanda

— Mike Hasson

Janice is an excellent person to have on your team. She is so thoughtful and client service-based. Even though I wasn't buying a home and she wasn't getting paid for her services, she scoured the internet, sent me multiple prospective properties, really listened to my wants and needs and did a great job. She builds her business through relationships and I'm happy to have formed a relationship with her. I know that when I'm ready to buy, Janice will be my agent. -Ashley Hawley

We are a family from out of the area that ran into Janice Pestana at an open house. She took us right in. Being out of the area, Janice did a ton of leg work for us and found us a beautiful house in Forest Heights. She represented us very well and went the extra mile for us. It was a pleasure working with Janice. If you are in need of a Realtor, you can't go wrong with Janice. -Scott Wilkinson

— Scott Wilkinson

Janice was our agent for our move from San Francisco to Portland. Janice went above and beyond expectations at every opportunity. It was a real comfort in such a stressful time to have a hard working and diligent partner in this process that truly had your best interests in mind through pre and post sale. I would highly recommend perspective home buyers or sellers to consider working with Janice. -David Wickstrom

— David Wickstrom

Janice was instrumental in our search for the perfect home in the Portland metro area. She was always available to answer our millions of questions, show us all the houses in our target areas, even calling on homes that recently went off the market unsold to see if they were still available. Janice left no stone upturned to ensure we found the perfect house for our family. We found it, and it happened to be a foreclosure. The process of buying a foreclosed home can be very taunting and long. Janice helped keep our eye on the prize, listened to our concerns and put our fears at ease. It was a long process and we would have given up without Janice's expertise personal service and warm personality. She is one in a million, and will work tirelessly for you. -Charles and Pamela White

Janice has been wonderful to work with! We picked her to be our agent because of interactions we had with her when we were attempting to sell our house on our own. She toured our home for prospective clients and was so complimentary of how we had cared for our home. She didn't pressure us to list with her or tell us what a terrible idea it was that we were trying to sell on our own. She simply thanked us for allowing her to view our home and left her card with us, offering her assistance if we should need it. While she was looking at our home, we asked a question, to which she said she had some ideas and would look into the matter in question. Very shortly after leaving she sent an e-mail with links to resources to address our problem; again, without pressure to list with her. The real reason we picked Janice to represent us is that she was so thoughtful and attentive to our needs long before we ever considered listing with her. She even brought me soup after having to put her off from viewing our home for a week because I had been down with the flu. Janice is heartfelt and dedicated and has worked very hard on our behalf without putting any pressure on us. We would highly recommend Janice Pestana if you are thinking about buying or selling a home.

— Melodie Sherer

Janice is one of the hardest working agents we have encountered. We meet her when we attended an open house she was hosting. She was so genuinely friendly and warm, it was as we had been long time friends. We had just started our hunt for a new home and had spoken to a few agents. But Janice's warm personality made her our agent. The housing market in the Portland area was really hot, and Janice worked tirelessly to ensure that we got the latest listing in our price range quickly and arranged for us to view the homes that we were interested in. Once we found our dream home, Janice worked twice as hard to ensure our offer was placed correctly and took care of all the things that had to be done to get us to close. She was always available to answer any questions we had, assured us when we had doubts and encourage us when there were obstacles. She will go above and beyond for you. We couldn't have asked for a better home buying experience, Janice is wonderful.

"After my three-year RBD (Really Bad Divorce) with my Really Bad Attorney, I was left with all mutual marriage debt. I was in the unfortunate position of not wanting to, yet having to sell my home of 22 years to pay the debt. I was unhappy and unprepared to let go of my longtime nest.

I recalled that Janice Pestana had sold my neighbors' home a year before and contacted her. Let me be clear: meeting and working with Janice Pestana was the best thing that happened to me after my RBD.

Not only sharp and intelligent, Janice Pestana was warm and calmly reassuring throughout the process of preparing, listing and selling my beloved home--which took only one (1) month from the start to my acceptance of an offer.

Ms. Pestana's technical expertise as a real estate professional ensured my home (a 100+ year old Craftsman Bungalow) was superbly and completely prepared for listing to ensure my receipt of the highest offer and price possible on my home.

Ms Pestana takes pride in representing listings in some of Portland's most historic and hip neighborhoods--that pride was evident in her treatment of me and my home.

She took care of all details personally, including staging the interior, supervising open house and, most important, interacting with and shielding me from roommates who were rude, disrespectful and hostile to me during the sale.

Ms. Pestana's approachable, absolutely pleasant personality was a tremendous comfort to me in a situation where I was fearful and uncertain of my future as a 54-year old single woman. Ms. Pestana took impeccable care of me and my home.

Life can be hard--Ms Pestana went above and beyond my expectations to make the sale of home as easy as it could be.

I think Ms. Pestana is the best real est ate agent in the Northwest and should be the only choice for folks planning to sell their precious property, especially historical homes in hip city neighborhoods like mine.

When I am ready to buy or sell another home, Janice Pestana is the only phone call I need to make. On a scale of 10, Janice Pestana is a 20."

"My wife and I purchased a home in Portland while still living in the Washington DC area. Given the limited housing stock and number of buyers we were apprehensive about finding and purchasing the home we were looking for. Janice represented our interest extremely well. She was able to assist us in identifying exactly the property we were looking for and in formulating a bidding strategy that was successful against 9 other buyers. All of this was accomplished without us personally seeing the house. "
