Meet Janet

Real Estate Professional

Moving is one of the most stressful things we choose to do.  Moving with children or to a new community can make this experience even more stressful – just the thought of it makes my heart beat a little faster! I recall telling my kids they will make friends easily at their new school, all the while hoping I’ve picked the right school for them and really hoping I’ve made the right decision for their future and for mine.
This was my reality a few years ago, at the time my kids were 14 and 15 years old when we moved to Vernon. I had to quickly learn about local schools, activities, sports programs and local attractions, and I remember the feeling of relief when I got to the hockey rink or soccer pitch, not only on time, but without using my GPS! I look back at how hard it seemed, as a mom I’m always losing sleep over what is best for my kids. Was this the right move? The right home? The BEST school?
Validation came from my son during his graduation speech when he thanked me for making the move, but wished we had done it sooner. The weight of “Did I make the right decision” was instantly lifted and Vernon finally felt like our HOME.
When making these difficult choices you need to work with someone who is dedicated and driven to succeed, who will help you make the decisions that are BEST for you – which is what you get when you choose me. I excel in areas of attention to detail, organization, meeting hard deadlines in stressful situations and having resourceful solutions to unexpected issues. 
Communication, having hard conversations and working through issues that result in positive solutions is what I excel in. I look forward to walking you through the buying and selling process, all while wearing my signature stilettos! I want to help you and your family find that special home that makes you feel the way my family did.

We are so grateful for all of Janet’s help selling our home in Armstrong. As you know, selling a house can be very stressful. Janet's friendly and caring manner and her understanding of our unique situation helped us get us through it with very little stress. She worked around our grandsons schedule making my life easier. She always replied quickly, answering our questions and keeping us informed about what was happening with our listing and the real estate market. She went out of her way to make our lives easier and our experience pleasant. The people that she recommended to help with preparing the house for showing and for the final cleaning gave us excellent service at reasonable cost. We have dealt with several agents over the years but none were as dependable, informed and caring as Janet. Her integrity was impeccable throughout the entire process. Our only regret is that she can not represent us as buyers as we look for our new home on Vancouver Island. If you are looking for someone to represent you in selling and or buying your home we highly recommend Janet Barrett. Sincerely Debbie and Dave Clarkin

Thank you for your outstanding services you provided for us. We liked that you were always on time to meet with us, knew all about the property we were viewing, always quick to find the answers to any of our questions, always very prompt to return calls and emails. We never felt like we needed to hurry through a viewing, and your attention to detail is the best we've ever had. We look forward to working with you in the new year on our next venture, it was our lucky day when we met you!

Working with Janet was an absolute joy. I found her professionalism , positive personality, and responsiveness to all my queries invaluable. After my home sold, I was concerned as many homes I was interested in had accepted offers soon after my interest. But Janet consistently guided me through the experience with unfailing support and encouraging words to have faith in finding my new home. I trusted Janet to represent my best interests and successfully found a home that exceeded my expectations. I am very thankful to Janet for her assistance.

Janet was an absolute joy to work with. I decided to list my place in short notice and within a couple hours Janet agreed to meet with me. She brought all the paperwork, already had comparables to view in the area. We came to an agreement on a sale price and assured it would be up and running on MLS shortly. Janet had professional photos done that looked amazing. Upon being launched on MLS and other social media sites she kept me up to date with hits and views on the property. Within 10 days I had an offer just shy of the asking price and closed within a few weeks. Janet was professional, efficient and had great communication throughout the process. I would highly recommend Janet to list and look after all your real estate needs.

You really do a disservice to us, by being such an awesome real estate agent, you set the bar very high and unfortunately, most do not even come close. Thank you so much for being so insightful, and always so willing to help. We will look forward to buying another house with your help and expertise. In fact you might be stuck with us for life.

We’ve had complete confidence in Janet from the time of our first meeting with her until the completion of the sale of our house. Janet brings a level of professionalism and knowledge to her job that’s left us feeling 100% confident we were receiving the highest level of service a realtor could provide. Janet is an excellent communicator. She did a fantastic job of providing us timely updates and feedback from showings, and kept us well-informed of all the ‘next steps’ throughout the selling process. We’ve already recommended Janet to friends and colleagues as an excellent choice of realtor, who will work hard and in the best interests of her clients.

Janet made buying our first home such a breeze. She was able to find us so many amazing homes to view so quickly. She went out of her way to show us places on evenings and weekends to work with our busy schedule. She had amazing communication with us and was very professional and efficient. Within a month she had helped us find the perfect home and made the process of buying the home so easy. We would definitely recommend Janet to all our friends and family and we hope to use Janet in the future with all our Real estate needs.

Janet Barrett was just starting her career in Real Estate when she approached me to possibly being our agent. Having known Janet as a coworker from her previous career, I knew of her strong work ethic and her ability to ensure that she learned as much as she could in order to do the job well. I knew Janet would give the same effort to ger new career in order to be successful at it. Janet was eager to prove herself and make a name for herself in the industry. She did not disappoint. Janet gave 150% to every aspect of finding us a house that we would be happy in and proud to call home. I highly recommend Janet Barrett for all your Real Estate needs. Very professional and very patient. We saw many houses before we found the one that was right for us. Janet did not rush us or try to persuade us to buy something that was not right for our needs.
