More about Janice Allen

My real estate career started in New York in 2001. I was based out of Westchester County and my territory covered 6 counties. In 2019, it finally seemed time to come back from the east coast to be with family in my home state of Michigan. Having moved many times, and across state lines, I know what the process entails for people, firsthand, and how much responsibility we have on our side to make sure your transaction goes through as smoothly as possibly without any hiccups or issues arising along the way. There's more to real estate than buying and selling homes. It's about people, families, and their hopes and dreams. It's about a relationship based on trust, knowledge, and expertise. My clients can be assured that I'll always look out for their best interest and be their advocate, so they have the best experience possible. You'd be hard pressed to find a REALTOR with more ...

      - Kristy Howard (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice was very patient with me and she was good at taking away any anxiety. And, she knows how to deal with people. She became a good friend.

      - Carol V. (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice Allen is absolutely amazing. It's not enough to say she's good at what she does. She walked through each situation with the confidence of a shark in a goldfish tank. Every time I got stuck on something she sorted it out for me. The very concept of buying a house in another state was foreign to me and Janice made it simple and easy. Not only that but she found me the house that I didn't know I wanted. I am a genuine grade A pain in the rear and she added houses to the list the morning of a showing spree and turns out that's the house I loved the most. Now I'm sitting here in a house in Kalamazoo, Michigan that I didn't think I could have ever owned.

      - William Severa (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • I was a first time homebuyer working with a down payment assistance program and a very tight budget in a seller's market. There were very few homes on the market in my price range and even fewer in the location I was targeting. I followed Janice's recommendations when it came to offers & negotiations and would probably still be looking had I not. She very much had my best interests in mind

      - Jen Merrick (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • We entered the market and started to look for the 'right' home in late winter while values were ramping up into a frenzy. We stumbled through several agents to look at some homes that interested us. But we were quickly turned off as they only wanted to know what our top end of our qualification was as 'everything' was becoming a bidding war. These agents didn't get to know us or really find out what our goals were. Obviously, we didn't sign on with them. We found Janice from a good rating and called her to show us some homes. Janice was very likable as she casually worked to understand what we were looking for from our prospective. When we finally found something that interested both of us, we did our own research & decided to make a fair bid. When we called Janice with our thoughts, she responded by discussing with us a strategy on how to frame our offer. As we reviewed it and worked with her, we became comfortable as this was inline with our goals. We signed the offer and we're moving into a great new home! In summary, we found that Janice is a very good listener and a fantastic student of the market. She knows her craft!

      - Ray & Diane Klassen (St. Joseph, MI)
    • Janice was very helpful and made the process of selling our home very easy! She took her time to explain everything to us and made us feel important. If you are in the selling or buying market I highly recommend Janice!

      - Brooke Ricketts (Dowagiac, MI)
    • Janice Allen is a realtor who is dedicated to excellence in the process. I was so impressed with her listing of my house; it made me want to buy it myself! Through the entire process I could tell that she was working to get the best result for us! Job very well done! I recommend Janice Allen.

      - Cynthia Wilson (Three Rivers, MI)
    • Janice was very helpful with a cross country move and went above and beyond in providing referrals for lendors, inspectors and contractors, doing a final walk-through with video on the home and verifying that all issues were addressed. She also has informative videos on YouTube on many topics including market reports that are terrific. Great advocate for clients and a consummate professional.

      - Paul Jansen (Mattawan, MI)
    • Janice went above and beyond to make sure our bid was accepted and our house was sold. She was always willing to do whatever it took to help us with everything, from scheduling to relieving our anxiety. Would 100% work with her again, and recommend to anyone thinking about buying or selling.

      - Sarah Smith (Mattawan, MI)
    • Janice is one of the hardest working agents in the business. She will continually go above and beyond for you as you're working to sell your home. She's continually investing in technology and education to ensure she's one of the top Realtors in Michigan. You will not regret connecting with her!

      - Emily Wilson (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice was excellent to work with. I gave her a pretty specific criteria on what I was looking for as a first time home buyer and she worked well making sure I found a house that fit it!!! She was fast to respond and quick to getting me into see a house because of the hot market we are currently in. She was also great when asking her for referrals!! (Lenders, contractors, etc) high recommend her and will definitely be using her again if needed!!!

      - Kipling Beck (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice is awesome! We were first time homebuyers and she took the time to explain the whole process to us. She was also very quick to reply and get us in to see homes. We were able to beat out several other offers and get ours accepted the same day we put it in. She definitely has the experience you want in a realtor and knows the tricks of the trade to get your offer accepted.

      - Ryan Bowman (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice at Jaqua dotted the i and crossed the t for all details of transaction. I entrusted her for sale of a secondary property of mine while out of state. It was a quick sale. Presentation of property sale was top notch..what does this mean? Great marketing beforehand equaled a high traffic open house. From open to close the transaction was through in less than 3 weeks. She answered every phone call. I recommend her.

      - Scott Whinna (Gobles, MI)
    • Janice is great to work with! She is very friendly and a great communicator. When it comes to buying and selling she is very knowledgeable and does a fantastic job making the normally overwhelming process a more pleasant and encouraging one. If youre thinking about buying or selling a home, definitely get a hold of her!

      - Sam (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • Janice is the best! My wife and I just purchased our first home with Janice's help and she walked us through the entire process. She answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable while navigating through the home-buying process. When it came time to put in offers, Janice was smart and competitive with our offer and found a way to make us stand out. If you need a realtor, go with Janice Allen!!

      - Zach Perkins (Portage, MI)
    • Janice was great to work with! The complications of our family ownership didn't slow her down at all. We had already been dropped by 2 realtors. I am very grateful to Janice for her positive attitude and getting the job done.

      - Julie Breitenbach (Paw Paw, MI)
    • Sometimes things happen in different ways , my wife and I had just went through a total loss house fire. We did not even know what our settlement was going to be when we met Janice Allen at an open house . She was helpful and sympathetic to our situation. Having not bought a house in 38 years, we were very overwhelmed with the housing market in 2022. Janice sent us houses to look at through our email that fit the checklist we had given her. There was no pressure or unwanted calls ever. If we saw a house whether it was from her company or others she would arrange a visit as soon as possible, usually the same day. Janice would have all relevant information and was insightful to what the market was doing. My wife and I looked at a few houses, with no pressure to buy from Janice. None of those houses seemed like home. On a Saturday morning a property popped up on my phone that was not what we were looking for, but intrigued us. We called Janice and she arranged for us to see it just hours later. When my wife and I stepped into this house it felt like" home ". Janice had all the appropriate info on the house . We were able to put together an offer before we left the house. It was accepted before we even got home. Janice helped us get through the closing process. I would recommend Janice Allen to anyone looking for a real estate agent . She went above and beyond to get us into our new residence. We would consider her more than just our agent but also a friend ."

      - Jim & Sue Busch (Mendon, MI)
    • Janice Allen was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the market and home buying process. Very patient with me and my wife as first time home buyers. Took time and effort to educate us about home buying and never left any mystery at all as to what our next step was. We only had to look at two houses to get an offer accepted (was better than what I expected), which was very appreciated because we both work full time and didn't have a lot of free time to put into this process. It was challenging moving to Michigan from out of state because we did not have the opportunity to look at any houses in-person, but Janice did a stellar job conducting the tours virtually and accommodating additional visits for our family members to see the house in-person. If you're looking for someone who is knowledgeable, accommodating, punctual, who goes the extra mile (and above all else, has integrity which you don't often see with realtors), I highly recommend Janice.

      - Alex Weiss (Richland, MI)
    • We have loved working with Janice! Being first time home buyers, we were overwhelmed and confused about the process, but she was so good at breaking down the home buying process for us. She has been with us and has helped us every step of the way. Janice takes the time to listen to and then address our questions and concerns. She will go to bat for her clients and their needs, which makes us feel confident as we navigate buying a home. Janice has been a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend her!

      - Nicolle Ritchie (Sturgis, MI)
    • Janice is the absolute BEST! I can't put into words how appreciative my husband and I are of her. She has truly made our home selling process painless. We were in the midst of an out of state home purchase when we decided it was time to list our MI home. We were dreading adding more to our plate but Janice made everything so seamless and fun! From the very first meeting she has been so responsive and supportive and we immediately knew she was someone we could trust to work in our best interest. Her professionalism, marketing tools, sales tools and attention to detail are all top notch. By far the best realtor we've ever worked with. We are honestly sad our home sold so quick because we love working with Janice that much. Whether you are buying/selling your 1st home or your 4th, Janice is your girl!

      - Hannah McKone (Paw Paw, MI)
    • Janice was excellent to work with! She was respectful, responded quickly, very professional, and helped with closing our deal quickly for us! Definitely recommend!

      - Natalie Rodenhouse (Mattawan, MI)
    • Janice surely knows her stuff and is amazing at what she does! She is very knowledgeable and takes to time to calculate anything and everything during the housing process. If you have any questions she is more than happy to answer. During our time meeting up together she was professional, personable, and had a great sense of humor! I would recommend Janice in a heartbeat.

      - Shelby Flynn (Kalamazoo, MI)
    • It is not only the depth of knowledge that Janice has regarding the real estate business, but also her friendliness. It was a pleasure working with her. I highly recommend Janice if you're looking for an skilled realtor to work with.

      - Armeen Parsayar (Paw Paw, MI)
    • You are knowledgeable in your field and conscientious. You kept us informed enabling us to create a partnership with a common goal. Your professional approach and genuine concern for us made you the perfect choice. We will highly recommend you.

    • Thank you for making the sale of our home happen in today's market. We were very pleased that we had multiple offers on our home and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you in the future! Thank you.

      - Martin & Nan M.
    • You are such a great real estate agent. Wonderful! Thanks again for helping us sell our house! I am very grateful! You are the hardest working Real Estate Agent that I know, a fabulous personality, high energy, well organized, and so competent. You said you would sell our house; I trusted you and you did it in a very tough market!

      - John M.
    • As with any sale, the right person(s) looking for what you have, has to be brought together. In my case, about six days after Janice listed my home, several offers were made and a quick sale completed thus making my purchase equally smooth. Janice knew just what to do to because of her superior negotiating skills.

      - Grace R.
    • Thank you Janice in all you did for me in the sale of my house. You did a 'great' job in listing my house and accomplishing a quick sale and for an excellent price.

      - Barbara C.
