Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
As someone who has been a real estate agent in the past, I wanted to hire someone who didn't just have a large number of listings. I wanted a true professional, who had the skill to SELL our listing for as much as possible and in the least amount of time. Janna came out and spoke with us after we called her. She didn't just talk. She LISTENED to us. We told her what we thought was important for her to know about our property and what we wanted in a new home. I will make a short story shorter. Because of Janna's skilled marketing efforts, we were able to sell our home in just 10 days! That's only part of it. Not only was it sold quickly, but we had 2 offers on the property the first weekend it was shown and both were ABOVE the listing price! Did I mention that our house was in a price category that was moving VERY slowly? Janna priced our home perfectly and sold it quickly and efficiently. On the purchase side, Janna showed incredible negotiating skill. We found the house we wanted, made a low offer that we didn't expect a counter to and because Janna knows the value of silence as much as talking, we were able to buy the house on our first offer. There's no substitute for negotiating instincts. Personally, I think Janna should take her skill to a large metropolitan area with vast suburbs. She'd make a fortune as sophisticated as she is. If I were someone looking for an agent to buy or sell, I'd drop what I'm doing and call Janna before she takes my advice about finding a more lucrative environment

My husband and I recently moved from Virginia to Maine and Janna was with us every step of the way! She took the time to get to know us and our needs in order to find the right home for us. She was always friendly, patient, and very responsive. Her expertise is above and beyond and I swear she has an answer for everything. She was even able to hook us up with a dog rescue in the area so we could immediately continue our love of dog fostering. Cannot recommend Janna enough, she is a gem!
Did a great job selling my first house after four other realtors dropped the ball. Currently in my fourth real estate transaction with them; they just know how to make things happen, and work very hard to do it. Thank You again John and Janna!

I worked with Janna in purchasing a townhouse and then selling my condo - both are located in York, ME. Janna was extremely responsive and helpful during the entire processes for both properties. She went out of her way to get answers to all our questions. She was personable and reassuring but also assertive and persistent when the situation warranted. I very much enjoyed working with her office staff as well - Kerry was dogged in obtaining information necessary for the sale of my condo. I would wholeheartedly recommend Janna and her team!
Janna Syrene is the best, most professional, amazing realtor I have ever worked with. I have the utmost respect for her. Not only does she truly care, she has vast experience and knows the real estate business like no other. Her morals, ethics and standards are beyond anyone I know. She is thorough, persistent, strong and pleasant. I have aspirations of becoming a realtor one day and only hope that I can be a fraction of Janna. She was my realtor when purchasing and selling a home for me. Both experiences were flawless. She's amazing!

I selected Janna due to her strong track record. Our home had been rented out for over 10 years after we were relocated out of state, and needed a lot of work to make it marketable. When I returned to Maine to perform most of this work, Janna was exceptionally helpful recommending home improvement actions, paint colors, and contractors. Her suggestion of pre-inspection was particularly beneficial. Janna was easy to work with; she provided suggestions and opinions but never insisted we take a particular course of action. She was committed and ready to work with us from the beginning and did not stop working until we closed. In fact, when an HVAC issue cropped up at the last minute, she convinced the buyers to trust our assurance we would get the issue fixed (which it was) and proceed with closing as scheduled! She went above and beyond on many occasions, she made us feel like we were prized clients! I highly recommend Janna and her team!

Janna was recommended to me by my insurance agent. It was the best recommendation I could have received. Janna’s high energy level, great enthusiasm, depth of knowledge, and warm personal charm gave me great confidence that my house was in good hands. Janna arranged for a photographer very soon after accepting the challenge to sell my older home and she had an open house event soon after. The only reason I give Janna a 5 out of 5 is because there was no “6” category. I regret I had only one house to sell. You’ll be in good hands with Janna.

There aren’t enough stars to reflect our experience with Janna and her team! We live out of state and had signed with another agent before doing proper research. To say our experience with this other agent was a nightmare would be an understatement. By the time we were out of our contract, I had researched extensively, and read a ton of reviews. When we reached out to several agents to see who could help us relist, Janna stood out from the beginning. With her obvious business acumen and wonderful warmth and enthusiasm, she had us at ‘hello.’ She is the REAL DEAL. She was committed and ready to work on our behalf from the beginning and did not stop working until closing! She went above and beyond on SO many occasions, she made us feel like her very favorite clients! She is a true professional – she has integrity, knows the area and market, works tirelessly, and will get your home sold!

Janna and her team were SO helpful to my wife and I as we purchased our second home in Wells, ME. She acted as both the buyer’s and seller’s agent, and was extremely professional, honest, and helpful throughout the process. Not only does a Realtor “show a house”, which can simply “show itself” when you visit it, but they also provide guidance, referrals, and handholding through the entire purchasing process, and the closing event. I would certainly vouch for Janna’s professionalism and expertise should you need a real Realtor in the area.

Janna is a truly great realtor. She is patient, knowledgeable, and experienced in her people skills which is invaluable in making a negotiated deal work rather than fall apart while keeping her client's best interest at the fore front. I worked with other realtors in prior years; and, I found Janna to be far superior. I would recommend her without any hesitation to anyone who has a property for sale.
