Experience the difference – Personal ties and relationships turn a property into a home. Warm, professional relationships are a hallmark of the Compass experience, and my clients often remark on the quality of my carefully chosen network of financial, legal, logistical and other specialists. The high-quality network that I have fostered extends beyond the Bay Area to an international audience of potential home buyers and sellers through the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and the firm's luxury home division known as Luxury Portfolio. My personal network combined with Compass market tenure and brand identity gives my clients a distinct advantage when buying or selling a home.

My relationships open the door for my clients to be at home anywhere. Where people, homes, opportunity and a bit of imagination intersect, you'll find me at Compass.

“Janna did an over the top job. Our home in an older neighborhood with lots of specialized challenges and was largest and most expensive in the neighborhood. Janna brought in lots of foot traffic, especially from online advertising hitting the Silicon Valley where most of the buyers were coming from. She made some strong staging recommendations and followed up with all interested parties. The market really slowed right after we put it on the market and Janna worked with multiple potential buyers for months before the right one came through. She is a very hands on agent and very easy to work with. We highly recommend her.”

“Janna helped us buy a home in a very short time and was very responsive and quick in solving problems and removing obstacles during the process. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and process and is well connected in the industry in getting information from all parties (loan agents, contractors, inspectors, etc.) involved. I definitely recommend Janna as a buyers' agent based on my personal experience.”

“My husband and I worked with Janna when purchasing our first new home in Pleasanton. As first time buyers, we needed guidance from a trusted resource that could provide reliable, professional, local information on the real estate market and processes, and Janna was that person. From the moment we contacted Janna, she hit the ground running, setting us up with an awesome loan agent who worked through the weekend to secure us pre-approval and keep us in the running for this great opportunity. When bids were due just days later, Janna wrote a competitive offer that allowed us to beat out 4 other bids! She then ensured we would be able to close the sale within the 30 day escrow timeline. She was masterful at working with the listing agents and owners to secure a smooth transition from the previous ownership, and referred us to vendors for home owners insurance and construction, all of which have worked out wonderfully. Thank you Janna for helping us find our dream home!”
