Jan was all that we could hope for in a real estate agent and more. The current market conditions made buying a home an incredible challenge. It would have been easy to get discouraged and settle for a home less than what we desired had it not been for Jan. Jan took the time to understand our needs and desires at the beginning of our search process. More importantly, she got to know us as individuals. This was critical as we navigated the home buying process. We were tempted at multiple points to lower or change our original goals. Jan helped remind us of our goals, not settle and find a home which met everything we were looking for as a growing family. We couldn't think of a better realtor to help us with the home buying process. You're in great hands with Jan. - Jon & Jess

Thank you very much for all your help in purchasing our new home. First of all, thank you for acting so quickly when the property became available. You understood exactly what we were looking for and knew that this property would exceed our expectations. As you know, the last time we purchased a home was over 30 years ago. We were nervous about the process. You kept us well informed every step of the way. Your professional manner and responsiveness were very reassuring. It was a pleasure working with you and we would refer you to others without hesitation. Thanks again for everything! -Gail and Rich Bennek

I am very happy with the services provided to me by Jan Schmidt. I secured Jan’s services to rent my condo in Philadelphia. I was very concerned that since I live in LA that I would be able to find a person in Philadelphia that could do a job for me. Jan exceeded my expectations. She kept me informed every step of the way via text , phone, and e-mail. She inspected the property to let me know what I needed to do to get a top rental price. She even contacted different contractors and managed them for me. In addition, she even did some things herself like changing the filters and oiling the windows…well beyond the call of duty. And guess what…she rented my condo in 1 day and I got top dollar for it. Jan is diligent, trustworthy, and genuine and I would highly recommend her. -Steven Ciceron

"I live in Katy, Texas and when my aunt passed away it became my responsibility to sell her house in Philadelphia. I would need a dependable real estate agent to handle everything, from contacting companies to remove the belongings from the house, for cleaning, painting, carpeting and even finding an organization to remove and accept a chair lift. Jan hit a home run and arranged everything. Jan was at the house to let the workers in, show them what to do and inspect the work and give her stamp of approval. Whenever I had a question she was easily reached by text or phone call. Listed only eight days, she sold the house at the asking price. No muss, no fuss, they just signed on the dotted line. I will probably be Jan’s only client from Katy, but if you live in the Philadelphia area and are considering buying or selling your home, Jan is the person to call." - Craig

“Jan Schmidt showed me extraordinary analytical, marketing and sales skills in listing and selling my deceased brother’s Philadelphia townhouse. Her keen community awareness and 25 years experience in real estate produced a sales contract in just one day, at a higher-than-advertised sale price. I would unhesitatingly work with her again.” - Ronald Z.

“I know it’s been a while since I sold my house, but getting into my new place is keeping me very busy. Anyway, I wanted to thank you again for all of your help and support as I went through the process of selling my home. You were a friend and a professional. With every challenge, you kept your cool and kept moving forward. You offered sound advice and encouraged me throughout the process. You covered all the bases and were always on top of everything. In the end, I got more than I wanted and I could not be happier. Again, many thanks for all that you did!” - Regine M

“You made the entire process of selling Dorothy's place easy for us and we greatly appreciate all that you did for us. Without your local assistance we would not have been able to settle as quickly as we did!” - Sean and Bev.

"We were extremely pleased working with Jan Schmidt on the sale of our house and purchase of our new co-op. Jan’s dedication and expertise helped to reduce the emotional impact and stress of the move. She offered valuable advice on preparing our house for sale from decluttering to staging to settlement. Also, she was extremely helpful in arranging and scheduling of contractors to complete work requested by the buyers prior to sale. The purchase of our co-op also went very smoothly, thanks to all of the outstanding assistance from Jan. We especially appreciate Jan’s ability to professionally perform her responsibilities despite the constraints placed by Covid19." - Bernice S. and Michael W.

"I wanted to thank you for helping me find and choose my new apartment in Philadelphia. For several weeks before traveling to Philadelphia you sent me many apartment options in the Ardmore area where I wanted to live. I was very fortunate to be able to find One Ardmore Place as my new home. Thanks also for driving me to a variety of apartment sites." - Susan Feinstein

"Jan, I can't thank you enough for going above and beyond in handling the sale of my house last month. The process of selling my home and moving across the country was quite stressful, but you have a very calming way of being diligent about bringing the right buyers to see the house. Thank you Jan for your patience and knowledge. You're the best!" - Wendy Berger

"Just wanted to thank you for your efforts in finding my new home as well as selling the home I lived in for 25 years. Everything went seamlessly thanks to your guidance and diligence." - Meg Moss

"Jan, It was such a pleasure to work with you. This was such an emotional time for me selling my parents home of 35 years. Your care and concern throughout the process helped me feel very supported. Your professionalism in dealing with prospective buyers and working with contractors I needed to get the place to sale ready, helped me feel I made the right choice in picking a realtor. The condominium building was challenging to work with and you spent many hours helping navigate this process. Your time and attention was amazing, being available what seemed to be day and night! Thank you so much for helping make this happen." - Mindy Z.
