★★★★★
"I highly recommend Janet Borden as real estate agent. Janet guided us through the sale of out house from start to finish including suggestions for contractors to get the property ready for sale all the way to anything else needed up to closing."

★★★★★
"We are repeat clients of Janet but this is the first time we have sold with her. She was extremely responsive, proactively communicated with us, and told us the good and the bad of each showing. We could not be happier with her service and know that she was always looking out for our best interests throughout the entire process. Thanks Janet."

★★★★★
"Janet was extremely helpful in our home search and was more than wiling to answer any questions we had, or address any issues or concerns with all parties involved in our home buying. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a GREAT realtor!"

★★★★★
"If you are looking for someone with TONS of experience and knowledge on North Shore real estate, call Janet! She was incredibly patient and eager to help us in choosing our first house. Thank you, Janet!!"

★★★★★
"Janet is an outstanding realtor - in every way. We discovered Janet in 2012 when we were moving from the city to the north shore of Chicago and she helped us purchase a home in Highland Park. The home was in short sale so the purchase took over six months and Janet patiently stood by us and guided us through the complicated process. Fast forward to 2019, we decided to relocate further up the shore and Janet expertly represented us with the sale of our Highland Park home and helped us negotiate the purchase of our new home. Our house was under contract within ten days of listing it and we found the perfect new place to call home in Lake Bluff - and Janet handled both transactions with great attention to detail and the utmost professionalism. Janet is the best there is on the north shore - if you’re looking to purchase a home or plan to sell your existing home, we highly recommend you work with Janet Borden!"
