Testimonials


Our goal is to make the process of buying, selling, or owning a home efficient, enjoyable and rewarding for you.  Here are what some of Jane's clients have said about her real estate services. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better and we look forward to doing the same. ~ Briar Hill Group


 



I have worked with Jane for two house purchases and one sale, I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great realtor who is also community minded and will become a friend. What I like best about Jane is that she is a straight-shooter and she clearly has your best interests in mind. You never feel like she is just trying to close a deal and you feel confident in relying on her advice and opinions. Jane is quick to respond at almost any time of the day or night, which helps relieve a lot of the stress that comes with selling and buying a house. She also has great recommendations and contacts for all of the other services you will need during the process. Jane makes it all as easy as possible.

I trusted Jane to make the best deal on my house in a hot market and she came through with a sale higher than expected or hoped for. An initial offer fell through and although I was upset, I knew and trusted that Jane would make the best of it. We ended up with even more offers and a higher sale. Jane clearly knows what she is doing.

Jane is the type of realtor that can tell you about a neighbourhood, or a particular house, confidence and knowledge of a person that is really committed to the industry.


I am so happy for and grateful to have worked with these two awesome ladies!! Congrats on your recent moves Sadie & Karen!!!

"Jane has done an exceptional job with selling our home. Her wealth of knowledge as a realtor is impeccable and it has been a pleasure to do business with her. She is always available, highly professional and gets the job done. We would not hesitate to recommend her services as a realtor to friends and family!"  Brent & Teresa H.

“I was carrying condo inventory on the market for 3 years before teaming up with Jane and did she ever rise to the challenge! She followed up on every lead and encouraged me to negotiate, even with lowball offers. As a result, the offers came in, and we got full asking price – or very close – and they were all sold within 6 months. She understands people, and how to bring them together. I’ve been in this business for 28 years and some agents don’t. She is very open to what’s happening and has terrific skills for dealing with both parties to make it work for everyone. She makes you feel comfortable dealing with her, that’s kind of rare. She isn’t just a sales person, she’s looking to make everyone happy.” ~ Steve C.

“Jane has the right connections; she knows how to market homes. She immediately got professionals in to stage and paint our home. Right after each showing she would send us the statistics and the comments about the potential buyers, so we could adjust things for the next showing. She was very prompt, professional and efficient in everything she did. We got a much higher price than any other seller in our development, and we sold so much more quickly too!” ~ Yoomi & Jimmy K.

"Dreading the hassle of trying to organize Auntie’s condo sale in Victoria from my up-island location, I called my real estate friend, Dan Johnson in Duncan, for some suggestions. Without hesitation, Dan recommended Jane Johnston, describing her as, “awesome.” In a follow-up email he also used the word, “amazing,” in case I had not totally understood!

He was right. Jane listed the condo January 21, and we accepted an offer February 10! She not only handled all the standard details, but continually went beyond expectation keeping me informed about every development, providing helpful suggestions, running around dealing with all our loose ends, you name it. And all with a great attitude and sense of humour. What more could we want. Thanks, Jane, you are awesome and amazing! ~ Mark W.

“We would not have found our house without the dedication and knowledge provided to us by Jane. Without a doubt, Jane made us feel as though we were her only clients, always responding to e-mails or calls within minutes. She personally sent listings to us that she knew met our criteria (in addition to having us on her automated MLS emails) and booked viewings for us ASAP after we showed interest in a property. Finally, she helped us to assemble a strong and dedicated team (mortgage broker, lawyer, house inspector) to quickly and efficiently close on our very first house. We were picky, and in the end we got exactly what we were looking for. Thanks so much for all your help, Jane!!!” ~ Zaide & Charlene

"Dear Jane,

Thank you for the great service and attention to detail on the selling of our home. Right from the moment we listed with you things started rolling smooth ,even on a tight listing date, you made it happen and you did it calmly and without issues. You provided us with professional pictures  and a floor plan; which was neatly put together in a package for buyers to review while looking around our home. You listed our property on all available avenues at your disposal which I was surprised at how many places it was listed. You were very attentive to our needs and always available by text, email, or phone which helped us out to remain calm during stressful times of negotiations. I would recommend your services to anyone looking to sell their home or purchasing a home."  ~ Aidan & Lisa P.

"We want to thank you so much for all your hard work, persistence and never-wavering enthusiasm in your efforts to sell our home. We interviewed other Realtors before we hired you but once we met you we knew that if anyone could sell our home it would be you, and you DID IT! Your professionalism and sound advice has been invaluable to us during this often stressful time. We would not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends and have actually sang your praises to many people already. Once again, thank you so much." ~ Gae & Gavin

"My wife and I found a home via MLS® that we were interested in viewing. But I knew nothing about finding and purchasing a home or anything else about how the real estate market worked, literally nothing. Somehow, and I am not even sure I remember how it happened, I became involved with Jane Johnston. I am by nature a very cautious person, if not outright skeptical and paranoid, especially of the sales world. My trust is a hard earned thing. Jane's efforts earned my confidence as it became apparent to me that it was my interests she truly represented. Jane showed us some homes we liked and we eventually decided to put an offer down on one. Jane managed to get this home for us significantly below what I was hoping to pay, which well exceeded my expectations. We would recommend to anyone to use Jane Johnston for the purchase of a home." ~ Greg & Hester Reid

"I would like to drop you a quick note to let you know how grateful and impressed I have been with my REALTOR® Jane. From the moment I met with her, she has been patient and understanding beyond belief. It was a difficult assignment as I did not know Victoria very well and had certain criteria that I hoped to have. She constantly kept in touch and we saw many, many houses before the "right one' came along. Her friendly and open manner with me was comforting and very helpful. She is definitely an asset to your team." ~ G.D.

"Jane has helped us not only with selling our house but purchasing our new house, and then with renting our basement suite in our new house. Jane advertised and made special arrangements for our new tenants to view the suite and was there every time we had a question or needed some information. If you ask us, Jane would get our vote for REALTOR® of the month, let alone of the year!" ~ S. and K. M.

"Jane Johnston was our choice for the sale of our home in Victoria. Her persistence and constantly staying in touch with us was very much appreciated. Jane is the kind of REALTOR® that you can trust dealing with all aspects pertaining to the sale or purchase of your new home. We will not have any hesitation in recommending Jane to all of our friends as she has become a friend of our family. Her diligence with open houses every weekend and numerous REALTOR® showings resulted in the sale of our home." ~ Harold & Betty K.

"It's nearly time for me to move I can hardly wait. I want to thank you again. I was really impressed with your drive. You kept me up-to-date with every detail which really helps to ease the stress of selling. With lots of advertising and open houses I knew I was getting good exposure. I would not hesitate to recommend you to my friends,in fact I already have. You are the best agent I have worked with to-date and I wish you every success." ~ Vicki K.

"It was awesome working with you on this purchase and I appreciate the time and work. You were right, I do like the "new stuff". Like many things, this was a process and I got where I needed to be, with your help." ~ B. Kempthorne

_____________________________________________________________________________________

"We have recently sold our house and purchased another one, with the assistance of Jane Johnston as our REALTOR®. We would like to compliment Jane for her excellent service. She was always professional, understanding, patient (you need plenty of that with me!), and always kept us abreast of the progress of the sale. We felt we were always up-to-date on whatever was going on. Jane was like a breath of fresh air. Throughout the stresses of both buying and selling homes she was very calm and reassuring and also kept her sense of humour which was much appreciated. We would certainly recommend Jane to others. We are looking forward to having Jane and her husband for dinner in our new home." ~ Larry & Gillian B.

"I heard about Jane through a friend and once my family and I met her and understood her commitment to her clients I was happy to ask her to help us find a home and to sell the one I had been living in for close to 40 years. Her knowledge and good advice were instrumental in us getting the house that we had our eye on. Then, with the pressure on to sell my home, she came through admirably – there was an open house almost every weekend with timely reports on any activity and good suggestions to move the process along. Despite a slowing market, the house sold reasonably quickly. Jane was so helpful with every step of both the buying and selling process – she was able to answer all our questions and offer suggestions to help me navigate the unfamiliar waters of buying, selling and moving." ~ Ruth N.

"Thank you so much for the unbelievable effort you put in with regards to the recent sale of my wife’s aunt and uncles townhouse. Jane you were absolutely fantastic. You went out of your way to help us with this sale. I believe it was every weekend (or close to it) that you had an open house and either phoned or emailed me to let me know how it went. It was so great to have your constant input from these open houses. It sure helped with the many questions asked by my wife’s elderly aunt and uncle. I would also like to thank you for calling them to let them know how it was going.

I have bought and sold houses over the years and have never experienced the type of work you put into the selling of this home. The only way I can explain it is you were just phenomenal right from the start to the finish of the handling of this unit.

I would never hesitate to recommend you to anyone that is looking to sell as I sure know that you will put 100% plus into selling their home and I will never sell another home without you. You just made the whole experience worth writing about.

Thank you again Jane for all the hard work that you did." ~ D. Hutchings

"Jane Johnston helped me to buy a home and is a very experienced and capable realtor. We began to  explore the market and during this time, Jane was very generous with her knowledge about Victoriaʼs communities. She was very sensitive to my needs and preferences. We made an offer and had a deal by the end of the same day. From the early explorations of the market to the day I took possession of my home, Jane was there for me. She was reliable and dedicated to finding the right property for me. Her resources and networking were especially helpful to me as I was unfamiliar with Victoria." ~
