“My company builds major master planned communities in the Sacramento area so I am exposed to many real estate agents. I can say that Janice is one of the best agents I have ever dealt with. Her good qualities include: attention to detail, quick responses, efficient and knows the business. She can efficiently get your real estate transaction closed.”

“Janice is the utmost professional, while still being warm and easy to work with. She is responsive and attentive to detail.

She is thorough and diligent, helping us get answers to our many questions about certain custom aspects of our new Tahoe home. Janice ensured that our escrow period went smoothly and that all issues (big and small) had been resolved prior to close.

She represented our interests superbly! We would absolutely use her again!

“It has been a pleasure working with you. Your experience and knowledge of the area and local housing proved invaluable.

You helped us avoid some of the potential pitfalls that could have led to costly repairs and upgrades.

You also were an effective support throughout the negotiation and closing process. You pro-actively followed up with all the involved parties to make sure that everything went smoothly and easily for us.

You have been quite a support and resource for us even after the closing and we are most grateful for all your expert advice and assistance.”

Wanda and Ron L. Reno, NV

“This is a letter of recommendation for Paul Kraus, Realtor/Broker for Truckee Mountain Properties.

We owned a condo near University of Nevada in Reno and realized that that with the current economy and home values, we needed to pursue a short-sale transaction.
This is where our journey began with Paul about 18 months ago.

From the very beginning, he was professional, thorough and great about keeping us informed. Because of our lender and the lack of efficiency on their part, our buyers would give up and look elsewhere.

Paul had to re-list our property AGAIN and AGAIN – 4 times to be exact! Each time, he was steadfast and encouraged us to hang in there and be patient & persistent with the lender.

Finally, the 4th time was a charm! We have officially closed escrow on our short-sale and have nothing but praise for Paul.

I cannot tell you how much we have appreciated his phone calls, kindness, but most of all, the constant knowledge that he was pursuing all avenues to complete our transaction.

I would highly recommend him for any real estate transaction and I hope your “real estate adventure” is not as exciting as ours!

Sincerely, Wanda and Ron Reno, NV”

Alan M. (Oakland), CA
“Janice helped us find the perfect house. She was superb! She has an in-depth knowledge of Montclair, having lived there herself for 16 years.

We learned from her about the many potential issues we needed to consider when buying a hills home such as the types of foundations and which areas were more prone to mudslides.

One thing Janice brought up that no other agent pointed out was the length of sun exposure each property we looked at had. Since Montclair is forest-like, she pointed out that hours of sun really matter.

Janice is always fast to respond to us and has gotten us in to see properties as soon as they came on the market.

We have already recommended her to our new neighbors who want to sell.

It was nice to find such a highly competent and caring agent. Alan T, Oakland, CA”

You made my Freddie Mac experience one that was really enjoyable! Again, thank you for a great transaction.

“Not only did Paul Kraus return my many calls with questions and concerns, he provided continued support throughout what turned into a five month long escrow, with many lender issues.

Paul was prompt to return my calls and help me every time. It would not have happened without [his] the help and support.

I would recommend Paul as a listing agent and definitely look forward to working with him in the future.
