Janet Borden

    • We chose Janet after meeting her at an open house. We were not disappointed. She helped us sell our Evanston house, pricing it correctly so it sold in one day for full price. She also helped us buy our condo in Winnetka and everything went so smoothly - she is a true professional. It was a joy to work with her! We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling on the North Shore.

    • Janet is the consummate professional. Intelligent, savvy, a good listener, and most importantly a keen understanding of her profession. Her advice is always spot on and she is a tenacious worker for her clients. The bonus is that she is a person of character and integrity. Janet is a joy to work with and makes what could be a stressful experience one that gives you confidence you are working with the best.

    • Janet is very approachable, extremely knowledgable about homes in the Northshore, and is always open to what the client wants/is looking for. Janet is able to find homes in various price points, is experienced in nuances of examining a home and red flags to look for, and is very helpful during the negotiation process.

    • Janet was the most patient, profession, knowledgeable and lovely person to work with. On every showing we brought along our young boys and she had enough energy for all our personalities. Janet took us through the whole process of buying a house and was always there to answer any questions we had. The most memorable part of our experience is that she did not sell us on any properties if they werent for us. We never felt pressure...only assistance. She once said, you just havent found your house yet she was right... and we continued to look with her until we did! We are so grateful to have Janet help us buy our first house

    • Janet is the ultimate professional. She is always available, always prepared and extremely knowledgeale. She is very pleasant to work with and always has a smile on her face. My house took a while to sell, as I had the price too high. She never pressured me to lower it. I was very anxious selling my house and buying a condo, but Janet made it as stress free as possible. I doubt you will find a more qualified agent

    • Janet really understands the Highland Park market. She was able to help us evaluate competing listings and how they compared to our home. She was very responsive and creative in staging our home.
