Our family is very grateful to the McGlashan team for their professional approach to selling a home. We were guided through every step of staging, marketing and presenting our house in the best possible way. The peripheral group of service people they recommended were equally up to the task of preparing our home to show to its best advantage. The team was supportive throughout the entire process, being very mindful of the timelines, and keeping us on task, while acknowledging that we also lead active lives. They were pleasant and professional at all times, while moving us forward to the goal. We were ecstatic to receive an offer of well over the asking price after our first and only open house. The entire team of Janice, Heather and Lisa are top notch and fun to work with. We highly recommend them.
Janice McGlashan and her team have all the qualities I was looking for in a realtor. From prepping the house for sale, fantastic staging, beautiful photography, outstanding marketing, sorting through 14 offers, negotiating, inspections, disclosure forms and other paperwork, there was no aspect that Janice, Lisa and Heather did not handle with the utmost integrity, professionalism and excellence. There were a few curveballs during this transaction, and Janice was cool, calm and collected throughout and handled each and every one with the integrity and professional she is known for. Due to her expertise, the house was sold way above the asking price. She and her team are outstanding in every aspect and I highly recommend Janice to anyone who is looking for the absolute best real estate agent around.
Janice, Heather, and Lisa are truly a dream come true! My husband and I worked with Janice and her dynamic team in the Spring of 2019 to sell our home, also buying our new one, and couldn’t have been more pleased! Thanks in large part to Janice and her team’s incredible hard work, we only needed two open house weekends to sell our home. Janice brought in a fabulous photographer to showcase our home, a designer for staging, and very specific (and excellent) contractors, which allowed the home to be much more appealing to a larger group of potential buyers, creating much more foot traffic. Janice and her marketing team absolutely can’t be beat. Janice was wonderful in keeping the transaction moving along and getting to closing in a timely fashion. She was always available to answer our questions, so responsive and the very sweetest person to boot! Heather and Lisa were equally terrific, always available for my husband’s and my myriad of questions or concerns; all three demonstrated such consummate integrity, professionalism, and attention to detail at every turn. We feel beyond satisfied and fortunate having trusted Janice & her amazing team with their vast knowledge base, connections, and many years of experience that made selling, and also buying our new home, a wonderful and exciting experience. We can’t recommend Janice and her team enough; they are absolutely #1 realtors.
Janice and her team Lisa and Heather were very professional and really on top of things in handling the sale of my home. They recommended painter, landscapers, and a handyman to prepare the house for sale, which was quite helpful.
Janice McGlashan, Lisa Zastrow and Heather Scherbert completed the sale of our family home after the death of our parents,with the highest professionalism and competency. We were especially thrilled with their help in obtainingcompetent professionals who completed final maintenance, painting, cleaning; you need it, they have it.Our home sold in one week with offers significantly above our asking price and closedquickly and on the targeted close date with zero inconvenience. A wonderful experience from beginning to end.
Janice and team have been extremely responsive, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. As with any real estate transaction, there are may bumps in the road and I would not have wanted to work with anyone else but Janice. Her experience with the local market, and her 24x7 availability made it possible for us to purchase a property in LC. We are looking forward to working with her again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family!
-Team Janice is the dream team!! Hard working, focused, energetic, and effective. Need proof? They sold my house sold in three days with three offers above the asking price. The winning offer was substantially over asking.
From our first meeting with Janice until the sale closed two months later, they were professional, punctual, competent and effective. Need something fixed? They have the contacts. Need information: They KNOW the market. Staging was spot on for the house and photography was worthy of a magazine.
Team Janice, Heather, and Lisa are problem solvers. If you work with one of them, you work with all of them. We were never left hanging or in doubt.
We couldn’t have asked for more in preparing the property for sale, negotiating the best price, and digging in for the best terms possible. If you want to work with platinum producers, sit down, buckle up, and hold on tight. This train doesn’t stop until the deal is made!
Janice – I wanted to take a minute, right on the heels of closing, to thank you very much for your terrific representation of us in these transactions. You have been the consummate pro throughout, and each transaction had its unique challenging circumstances. I am a competitive person and I think you are too, and I’m very glad we won the La Loma sales Olympics!!! We will happily and enthusiastically refer friends to you going forward.
Janice and her team just helped us purchase our new home in La Canada. They were amazing. Working with them was a dream. They were so knowledgable, dedicated and experienced. When it took us about six months to find the perfect home, they were always patient and laser focused. And when we knew we'd found it, Janice made sure that we got it for the best price. We've worked with other realtors in the past on former home purchases and sales, and no one ever came close to Janice.
Janice and her team provided us with a very thoughtful and professional approach in the search for our home in La Canada. Once we identified the home we wanted, she was able to secure the deal despite there being multiple competitive offers. I am confident that she was able to use her experience and skill in pushing us to the front of the pack.
Janice McGlashan and Lisa Zastrow are the team every seller hopes they will find to represent their home. They are exceptional in every way! They are extremely professional and ethical, very marketing and social media savvy and know how to stage a home perfectly to make it sell. They stay on top of every detail and give 1000% to make sure everything is done correctly and all parties involved follow through.
The sale of my historic home had been challenging but once engaged they managed to sell my home in three weeks. The strategic marketing plan they developed was very comprehensive. The staging and photography they used was superior and they put an incredible amount of time into marketing my home and closing the transaction. I would highly recommend Janice and Lisa to every seller as their #1 choice.
Janice McGlashan is far more than a fantastic real estate agent....which she is....
She is able to work through all the complicated issues of buying and selling, so professional at all times, always prepared for meetings, and goes far beyond what is necessary just to get the job done.
We recently worked with Janice on the purchase of our new home and sale of our existing home, both in La Canada. One can immediately see why Janice enjoys such a stellar reputation. Her in-depth knowledge of this area and real estate expertise, combined with her exceptional work ethic, business judgment, integrity, and passion for her clients make for an outstanding business partner.
If you are unbelievably busy, you need an unbelievable real estate team. Janice and Lisa are that team. We worked on selling my home, then buying another. Janice listens to what you want to achieve and stays strategic. She won't let you bog down. She cuts through the issues. She is fair and ethical. She keeps her cool. I've moved 12 times in my adult life, worked with at least half a dozen realtors, and unequivocally Janice is the best.
I bought a house in La Crescenta through Janice & Heather. It was a great experience as they are able to advise on various real estate questions that I have and help expedite the process in a very efficient way. Thank you so much for help making the transaction go so smoothly!
Working with a realtor of Janice McGlashan's caliber made buying a home in La Canada a smooth and worry free process. Her expertise, guidance, and ability to easily relate to our young families needs was extremely helpful! Truly, she is the most hardworking realtor in La Canada. We highly recommend Janice and her fantastic team!
After living for 23 years in our home in La Canada, the decision to sell it, made us very apprehensive, yet fortunately, through a recommendation of a friend we got in contact with Janice Mc Glashan, who made our home selling experience much more simple and less difficult than we ever expected. Our house was sold in 4 days and we are very sure that it was mostly do to Janice's effective and efficient abilities. We could not have been happier with her services.
We had a wonderful experience working with Janice and Heather and the entire team at Coldwell Banker. They were thoroughly professional and helpful throughout the process of listing and showing our home, and Janice was an expert negotiator when circumstances called for it.
She prepared us well for each step along the way, and we always felt supported and encouraged by the team. We highly recommend them for any real estate transaction!
Working with Janice and her team has been an amazing experience. Janice is extremely professional and light hearted as well. Selling a home is never stress free, but Janice and her team made it as seamless as possible. With Janice's experience and contacts in the industry it was an obvious choice to choose her to represent us. With that she also brought a great attitude. We felt we could trust her direction and advice. They took care of our house and during showings they made sure our dog was okay and didn't have to experience any distress. It made us feel as comfortable as we could while selling our house. Within a week of being listed our house was sold, which was really unbelievable. We couldn't have chosen a better team to represent our family. We are so thankful to Janice and her team.
We were totally supported by Janice, and her team, in this case Lisa Zastow, in the selling and purchase of our new home. They navigated us through getting the house in top shape for the market, selling, choosing the right buyer for us, and the purchase of our new home. It was an amazing process as we worked for a year and 1/2 in getting the house ready to show. Added to that was finding our new dream house on the market prior to our even listing our house. Through a whirl wind process, the timing fell into place and we were able to successfully purchase the house we had been looking for for 2 1/2 years. In addition Janice provided us with an extensive list of professionals to support our move and home improvements we are considering for our new home. We can't thank Janice and Lisa enough for all of their professional and personal support!
Janice and her team did an amazing job selling our home in La Canada. Ours was an older, larger home and as is typical with homes like ours, the transaction was not without its complexities. Janice helped us think through the entire process and gave us straight forward advice, not just telling us "what we wanted to hear". Secondly, she never stepped over the line and tried to pressure us to make one decision or another. She simply provided her counsel and was always mindful that the ultimate decision was ours to make. Lastly, her problem solving and we can figure it out attitude is immensely helpful during an emotional transaction such as this. We would wholeheartedly endorse Janice and her excellent support team.
Janice and Heather are a highly professional and experienced team. They handled the process of selling our home with confidence, speed and complete transparency. It is difficult to sell a home you have lived in for 20 years and they were sensitive to both our needs.
Janice and Heather also gave us excellent advice and guidance. When there was an issue or additional help needed they knew who to call. Their problem solving capabilities are outstanding. We would recommend them without hesitation and would use them again in a "heartbeat".
In looking for a local La Canada realtor, we knew Janice's prominent position in this very competitive market made her a great choice, and she exceeded our expectations. Her deep knowledge of the area, invaluable guidance and patience all contributed to providing a high degree of comfort to my wife and I. Throughout the whole process, Janice worked with the utmost professionalism and responsiveness ensuring the transaction was a smooth and seamless one. Without hesitation, we will happily use Janice's services again and would recommend her to others.
Janice is the consummate professional: knowledgeable, dependable, objective, and efficient. Her calm demeanor was a great source of comfort and reassurance to me during my transaction. With Janice as my agent, I knew that my interests would be fairly represented and that no detail would be overlooked. Thank you, Janice.
We were moving from our La Canada home of nearly 40 years to a retirement community. Needless to say, it was emotional. Janice & her staff made it seem easy, took all the burdens off our shoulders. So professional & caring we can't say enough praises of her. She is amazing. Though we won't ever move again we recommend her highly to all our friends.
Janice and her team exceeded all of our expectations. Due to personal reasons, we had a very short deadline to sell our house and Janice took on that task and understood the urgency and set forth a well thought out plan and executed timely and professionally. Janice and her team made the transaction of selling our house so easy and stress free and we cannot thank her and her team enough for all of their efforts in helping us achieve our goals. On behalf of our family, we say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you very much for your hard work in selling our house for more than the asking price and helping us find our new home. It has been quite a journey. I remember sitting on the beach with Heather in September 2015 asking her about living in La Canada. Is it the right place for my family? Would we be happy with the schools? Can we afford it? Heather described a great community with fantastic schools. Little did I know that Heather would be conscientious, persistent and determined in making our move to La Canada happen the following year.
From that moment on, Heather continued to check in with us and constantly notified us when homes in our price range came on the market. We were excited by her enthusiasm and knew she had our best interests at heart. When our curiosity was piqued with a particular home (Wasatch), Heather arranged a showing and reached out to the seller's agent. It was Janice's advice that confirmed our choice in agents for the sale of our house and buying our future home. Through those failed offers as well as the stress of listing our home, you both came through and we are thrilled with the opportunity to raise our family at Westslope.
We picked Janice because we know her as part of the La Canada community but primarily due to her reputation as the best producer in LCF. Our only concern was that we might not be dealing directly with her and wanted to avoid anyone with a cookie cutter approach to selling our house quickly but not for top dollar.
Not only did Janice surpass our expectations but she was involved personally from the very beginning to the very end. In fact she was out just for a conversation several months before we listed our house but wanted us hit the market at the right time rather than just rush us into signing up with her immediately. From the moment Janice came to the house we decided that we felt comfortable with her and the assistants she brought were all very professional and personable and would hire her when the time was right. No regrets! We listened and Janice was always there as a mentor and friend. We never felt pushed, just well counselled. The house sold well over list price and so quickly that we had to sign the contract from a bar in New Orleans as we had decided to get out of the way during the first few days. Janice is very analytical but brings great experience and intuition which amounts to a very dynamic pricing model based on the most current sales and listings.
She made the whole process seem much simpler and more comfortable that we could have imagined.
When we decided to "downsize" and move from our home of 37 years, there was no question as to who we would call to help us with the sale and purchase of a new home. Janice McGlashan possesses an in-depth knowledge of the residential real estate market and, as someone who works and lives in the area, has firsthand knowledge of our neighborhoods. She has a keen understanding of both buyers' and sellers' needs, and brings an exceptional level of expertise to her clientele. Janice was available to us throughout the process of selling our home. She coached us as to the logistics of downsizing and preparing our home for sale, provided extensive background on comparable properties in advising on the pricing of our home, capably led us through the myriad steps associated with the sale itself and the purchase of our new home, ensuring we had all of the tools at our disposal to make informed decisions. All was handled with utmost professionalism by Janice and her team, with attention to detail and personal care tailored to our specific needs. We could not have asked for a better experience in selling our home or a smoother transition.
We just completed the sale of our home of 34 years and the purchase of a new home to down size all in the past 6 months. Janice and her team represented us in both transactions. She is the consummate professional. She is extremely knowledgeable of the industry, well connected with other industry professionals and dedicated to her clients and their needs. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the market to either sell or purchase a property.
We felt very fortunate to have Janice as our Broker in the sale of our family home of 50 years. This was an emotional sale for us and she was compassionate and supportive throughout; anytime we needed assistance in the process, from the beginning to end, she was right there to help or provide a solution! She was even in another country during our sale and never missed a beat! She truly cares about her clients and I know that she had our best interests at heart. I was impressed by her professionalism and she was always honest and forthright in her dealings with us. She also made the paperwork fast, easy and seamless with electronic documents/ docusign. We would highly recommend Janice and we feel truly blessed to have had her as our broker!
Janice is a true professional. She is not only experienced but has an excellent team and vendors that work with her to ensure that the client gets the best results. I was an out if town seller on behalf of my elderly mother and Janice offered to make the selling and house preparation process very easy. I encourage anyone that is looking to sell a home in the markets she works in to give her a call and learn for yourself.
Janice and her team are complete professionals. From the start, Janice listened carefully to our unique needs, and formulated a plan which met all of them. She guided us through the process, alerting us to next steps, deadlines, document requirements, etc. She also paid attention to the small details overlooked by other real estate professionals, which helped to make this process both efficient and very pleasant for all parties. Her team members helped to complement her service. They were aware of the status and details of our transaction, and were able to answer all our questions quickly. We highly recommend Janice and her team!
We are repeat customers of Janice's for a very good reason! Once again she marketed & sold our home in a timely & professional manner. We would recommend Janice and her team to any of our friends and family.
Janice is the consummate real estate professional and a wonderful person as well. She is accessible personally and has an experienced group to back her up. The sale of our La Canada home was a pleasant transaction that was a positive experience for all. I would strongly recommend Janice to anyone looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent with a proven track record of successfully completing deals of all sizes.
We knew we had to deal with a top-notch agent for our house. Janice filled this requirement nicely. Professional, seasoned and knowledgeable, Janice navigated the staging, open house, negotiation and gave us sage advice that allowed us to get a fair price and close in a very short time. Not only did she handle the sale efficiently, she kept the process moving quickly. No wonder Janice is considered so highly, she is a great agent.
Janice and her team represent the pinnacle of service in La Canada. Their creative approach, incredible focus and passion, and deep business savvy creates the perfect seller experience.
I have worked with Janice for several years on the sale and purchase of multiple properties in La Canada and Pasadena. Janice is dependable, professional, and has excellent negotiating skills. As a top performer, she has an unmatched knowledge of the local market giving her a competitive edge to successfully close the deal. Her efficient support team enables her to work closely with her clients. She is a pleasure to work with and a strong player to have on your team.
Janice McGlashan is a true professional in every respect. Over the last decade we have now bought and sold three homes with Janice in La Canada and Pasadena. In each situation we relied on Janice to provide market expertise that led to outcomes exceeding our expectations. We trust her knowledge, capability and ethics as she continually looks for reasonable solutions to close transactions for the benefit of both buyer and seller. We would highly recommend her services regardless of the size or complexity of a property. She is simply the best!
Janice simultaneously handled three complicated real estate transactions for us seamlessly. And two of them were filled with significant emotion. Janice helped us reduce the emotion and get all three transactions to effectively close under terms that worked for us. We couldn't have been happier!
Janice is a seasoned professional. We had been looking for a house in La Canada for about 2 years. The inventory was very limited. We had heard about Janice's excellent reputation as a realtor and we contacted her. We told her exactly what we needed and she got it done for us. It was seamless. We are very happy with our home.
Janice is the best agent I have come across we have bought multiple houses in last 20 years and this was the best experience me and my family have had. She is not only our real estate agent but she is more of a family and friend for us. In my view it will be a mistake to use anybody else but her if you are looking to buy or sell house in Larger LA area.
Janice is the most highly qualified agent there is. She's a knowledgeable and eloquent sales person with a vast understanding of the market and the neighborhood. She managed our property with precise professionalism while still fighting for us at every step of the process. We completely trusted her and her advice. After going through three agents, we were losing hope. It should be noted that our property was one of the larger high-end ones and quite difficult to sell. We finally found Janice and were able to sell our house during the stalest time in the market. It was only due to Janice and her teams' efforts that this was possible. We are incredibly thankful and highly recommend her.
Janice McGlashan is THE BEST agent out there. Period. Working with Janice and her team was such a pleasure, and I was so impressed with her every single step of the way. I was referred to Janice by a colleague and I had heard that Janice was one of the best at what she does -- dedicated, thorough, and responsive. But once you meet her, you realize it's more than just that with Janice -- she genuinely cares and you will truly not find a kinder and sincere agent than Janice. She always has your best interests at heart and will make sure you get exactly what you want. Janice and Lisa went above and beyond at every step to do whatever they could to make the process as painless as possible. I really cannot say enough positive things about Janice, and I wouldn't recommend working with anyone else!
We have the utmost respect and admiration for Janice McGlashan. Throughout the process of selling our La Canada home, and buying a new home across town, Janice and her team were responsive, patient and thoroughly prepared for every eventuality. Her sense of grace and presence, no matter what the challenge was, was stunning. Her depth of knowledge, and her ability to juggle priorities and hit every deadline was truly remarkable. We absolutely believe that she is not only one of the best in our area, but one of the best anywhere! She took the time to really understand our needs, making the entire process much more than a real estate transaction. She builds relationships that are founded on trust and above all, integrity.
I am in awe of Janice McGlashan. Thanks to her assistance and advice on home preparation and negotiation, my La Canada home sold in four days. It would be a mistake not to hire Janice as your realtor.
Based on a recommendation from close friends who had had great success working with Janice, we contacted her when we decided to sell our house. She was very quick to respond. Our first meeting sealed the deal and we hired her as our listing agent. She has in-depth knowledge of the La Canada area, great sensitivity to the emotional aspects of selling a house and a wonderful sense of humor. We put our complete trust in her and the folks that work with her. Their recommendations were right on the money. Our house went on the market on a Tuesday and was sold within two days for over our asking price. We were completely happy with the experience and can't recommend Janice and her team highly enough.
'Janice McGlashan' and 'La Canada Flintridge' should be synonyms. My wife and I were amazed by her local knowledge. Janice made the whole process of selling our property as frictionless and fruitful as one could hope for. From establishing an asking price, to preparing the property, to creating both traditional and digital advertising, through negotiating with the buyers, and finally to signing the final documents, her professionalism and experience proved to be quite valuable to us. Would we use her again? Absolutely. Even if my little brother became an agent and wanted to represent us, I think I would still have to go with Janice McGlashan. She knows the area extremely well, appears to know everyone in the area, lives in the area, and her market knowledge is phenomenal. In the end, the most important thing when dealing with decisions of this magnitude is trust. From day one, we felt that Janice had our best interests in mind and that fact along with her amazing expertise make her one of the most well known and respected Real Estate Professionals in the area.
Both times that I've moved, Janice has been stellar. She and her team have helped get my homes sold within the first week. She knows the neighborhood so well and always manages to keep the process moving smoothly. Whether buying or selling, it's great having Janice in my corner.
We asked Janice McGlashan to list and sell our home for us in November 2015 because she originally represented the sellers who sold the home to us 13 years ago. She was the logical choice, as she knew the property, but working with her as our own representative proved what we already suspected: she is professional, has a great team, has the ability to make you the focal point of her attention despite many competing clients and consistently made thoughtful and well researched recommendations along the way.
We have trusted Janice with some of the biggest financial transactions of our lives...and she has never once disappointed us. Janice has taken what could have been deal-killers and, through calm and focused dedication, brought both buyers and sellers back in harmony. We have bought homes all over the country, and Janice is, bar none, the best agent we have ever worked with. Seriously there is no one better.
In early 2009 when it became apparent that we would have to put our long-time family home up for sale due to my husband's serious health problems and loss of employment, the only person I ever considered or felt that I could go to with our situation was Janice McGlashan. Janice was not only a personal friend but someone I felt that I could confide in about our circumstances, including financial. I know that every real estate transaction is unique but ours turned out to be a "perfect storm of events" that resulted in an emergency hospital stay for my husband and necessitated our having to move out of the family home in order for him to recover and Janice to properly list and show the house. I can't imagine surviving and finding our way through this chapter in our lives without Janice by our side. Not only did she stage, list, show and ultimately find a buyer for our house, but she also found us a charming guest house cottage to rent and helped us move and settle in before my husband came home from the hospital. Our home ended up being a short sale and as devastating and difficult as that was for our family and finances, Janice fought for us and the buyer to make the sale happen and prevent a foreclosure; not an easy task as the bank who held both our 1st and 2nd TD was virtually impossible to deal with and could have cared less about what happened to us and our home. There are people who come into our lives and help us through some of the most difficult and seemingly impossible times that we will experience and I refer to them as my "Everyday Saints". Janice is one of those special people and I thank her for making a difference in my life and in the lives of others. Janice is a remarkable person and I feel privileged to be not only her friend, but also a client.
It's tough to move out of a house and a town you love, but Janice and her team made the process as painless as possible. They provided us with excellent advice, and quickly smoothed out bumps along the way. There were a number of times when they went above and beyond what we'd normally expect of them, but we truly appreciated their willingness to help our transaction and move go well. I can't imagine a better real estate agent and team.
Our search for a home in La Canada was prolonged due to circumstances beyond our control. During the entire process we found Janice to be extremely trustworthy, patient and empathetic. She connected with us at a human level and did not make us feel like it was simply a business relationship. She understood our requirements and provided her honest opinion and insights when we sought help. With her professionalism she made the entire process quite smooth and stress free for us. She ensured that our transition to the house was pleasant and hassle free. Needless to say, we would entrust Janice with any future real estate needs in a heartbeat.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for everything you have done for us in connection with selling and buying our homes. Your customer service and responsiveness during the entire process to us was superb. Everyone that you recommended to us from mortgage representatives, house inspectors and general trades were very responsive and professional. We have now used you as our real estate agent on three separate occasions, and the best thing about you is your continued support and advice long after the transactions have been completed. No matter what roadblocks we seemed to encounter along the way you were always available to assist. It is great to have an agent like you that cares and does the right thing for their clients and goes the extra mile. We would not think of using anyone else, or recommending anyone else to friends and business contacts, for real estate assistance in La Canada. We are truly grateful for all that you have done for us. You are simply the best!
We are repeat customers of Janice's for a very good reason! Once again she marketed & sold our home in a timely & professional manner. We would recommend Janice and her team to any of our friends and family.
