"Jan was an attentive, always available realtor with unparalleled knowledge of the Salt Spring Island property market. The emphasis on getting to know your individual situation allows her to personalize her advice and really makes the difference. We would not hesitate to use her services again."
"Jan Macpherson was a godsend when we made the decision to make Salt Spring Island our home! We needed to get a feel for the diversity of neighbourhoods on the island, and Jan had the answers!
Her keen eye helped us assess the properties we viewed with her. A long-time islander, herself, Jan shared insider tips on where to go for everything from hidden beaches and hikes, to organic farm stands and bakeries off the beaten path. This level of knowledge is invaluable to choosing your neighbourhood in a new locale!
Once we made our decision, Jan was extremely efficient in dotting every "i" and crossing every "t". The property we put the offer on was in probate, which carries a layer of unconventional challenges. Jan navigated these waters without hesitation and with the utmost professionalism.
We are so pleased with our working relationship with Jan that I cannot over-emphasize the strengths she brings to the table! Jan is diligent, and she has exemplary people-skills! Such a joy to work with!
If you are considering investing in property on Salt Spring Island, and want to work with an extremely good realtor, call Jan! You will be in good hands!"
"It was an absolute delight to work with Jan. We live off island, and were looking for a house that we could rent initially, and move into a few years down the road. Jan is the most organized realtor I've seen. We had one full day the first time we went (arrived with the first ferry and left with the last), and she organized our tour with the utmost efficiency. When we returned home (a thousand miles away) she was instrumental in the process of elimination with all the extra information she provided us with over phone/email/skype. When we went back the second time to see a smaller batch of properties, she was just as organized and efficient, which made our life so much easier. She was also very good with the negotiation process. Overall we felt that she ran the extra mile every step of the way and ultimately made us very happy island owners."
"We chose to work with Jan based on her reviews and she did not disappoint us! From the moment we called and spoke to her we knew we were in good hands. Jan listened to our wish list and was quick to suggest appropriate properties. Honest, experienced, friendly and an expert in her field, she helped us to buy our dream home. We are so thankful and grateful for everything, Jan - thank you! If you are looking to buy on Salt Spring Island you MUST call Jan, she it the BEST!"
"We went with Jan because we heard that she was the busiest real estate agent on Salt Spring, and we are happy that we did. We're from Vancouver and didn't know too much about the SSI market, so Jan stepped up and offered her wisdom and solid advice. She worked hard for us, often checking in or taking phone calls after office hours to keep us up to date on the progress of our offer and the steps that followed once it was accepted.
We took possession of our first home and we couldn't have done it without Jan! We highly recommend using Jan as an agent if you are in the market for purchasing a home on Salt Spring."
"I recently worked with Jan in the selling of my Salt Spring house. From the moment we spoke on the phone, I knew I was in good hands. Jan is extremely knowledgeable and was more than happy to share her expertise with me. Her understanding of the real estate process really is impressive.
Jan worked hard for me, even staging my house when it became empty - something I would not have been able to manage as I am in Vancouver. She was sensitive and considerate of my tenants and ensured that communication was always timely and clear. Her advice was clear, honest, and spot-on. And in the end, she proved to be a strong negotiator.
I would highly recommend Jan. It truly was a pleasure."
