Janet was fantastic with the purchase of my current house and the rental of my other house. I think Janet is an amazing realtor. Thank you, Janet for everything you have done for me.

If you're looking for a realtor who will work tirelessly to sell your home, Janet is the one! Not even a pandemic could stop her from selling ours. Through her dedication and perseverance, Janet helped us navigate this process though the continuous changes in the market due to COVID-19. My husband and I work full time jobs and Janet made herself available to us no matter what time of day to answer all of our questions and concerns. Janet truly became our advocate and friend and we can't thank her enough!

"I have been fortunate enough to count Janet Haigg a dear friend over the years, a friendship I have trusted completely as I have experienced how caring and trustworthy she truly is. I have worked with many realtors over 30 years of handling their escrow transactions as an escrow officer, and chose Janet to handle several of my personal real estate transactions not only because of her knowledge, but more importantly because of the care and integrity she exhibits in the core of her character. One property we had listed by Janet was a property owned jointly by my ex-husband and I. Although my ex-husband and I were not on the best of terms, he did agree with me on one thing, choosing Janet Haigg as our agent. We mutually agreed Janet was the best fit to handle the sale of the property since we both knew she would be unbiased and communicate efficiently and effectively with both of us. The situation involved a property that was tenant occupied. Janet was successful at building rapport with the tenants, working with them to stage the home, while respectfully arranging showings for prospective buyers. Although the market at the time was soft, Janet set her heart on getting the property sold, and she achieved that goal so professionally, even amid the difficult situation of post divorce and the delicate situation of working hand in hand with the tenants. Having an unbiased, knowledgeable real estate agent who has the forethought and ability to create win-win situations for divorce situations is rare! I highly recommend Janet Haigg to represent you.

Extremely Satisfied Customer
I could not be happier with Janet's services! She went above and beyond my expectations. She was superb, and helpful in ways I did not even realize I'd need help. I was very nervous about this move, and she handled absolutely everything with compassion, respect, and understanding. I am forever grateful for all her help and will highly recommend her to anyone I come across that is in need of her services.

Thank you again. With best regards,

Low Budget, FHA, no patience, and wanting to live in a very specific area- that’s just a few of the hurdles Janet had to deal with when working with my fiancé and I. She was so patient and amazing every step of the way. As I mentioned- we had a VERY specific budget, location, and we were FHA, which made finding properties a challenge. Janet didn’t hesitate. Within a day we had over 30 properties to look at. Throughout the whole search Janet was available early in the morning, late at night, and just about every time in-between. She was responsive and had great communication with us as first-time buyers. The first property that my fiancé and I looked at was unfortunately being sold by a real estate agent that was just short of unethical, and it fell through after weeks of back and forth. We were discouraged. Janet didn’t miss a step. Within a day she had a plan to get us into the area we wanted to be in. She was ready to send mailers to every resident in the neighborhood, while still looking for a property within our strict parameters. She found something we loved, and eventually ended up purchasing. During the closing process there were more things than I could count that popped up- one of which was a HOA assessment that was not disclosed that Janet found on her own through her diligent work and research! She saved us so much money with her knowledge, research, and negotiating. She truly went the extra mile to take care of us like family. She made sure there were no surprises and that every single “t” was crossed and “i” was dotted. There were concessions we were willing to make like a broken fireplace and a furnace on its’ last leg, but Janet wouldn’t let our excitement for the property stand in the way of getting everything we could covered by the seller. Once again, she worked tediously and tenaciously to ensure that we got the most out of our purchase. THEN if that wasn’t enough- right at the finish line our property appraised for less than our offer. As we looked to gather every penny we had to make up the difference, Janet once again fought for us and got the price lowered to the appraised value. I would recommend Janet as an agent to any and everybody after my experience of dealing with her. She exceeded any expectations I had and then some. Do yourself a favor- make Janet Haigg your agent.

Janet Haigg was our realtor when we recently purchased out first home. Her professionalism and knowledge regarding every detail of the purchase was remarkable. She helped my fiancé and I every step of the way, and was readily available whenever we had any questions. From the day she showed us our home she blew us away. She is very knowledgeable about this industry and she did her homework to make sure that every one of our needs was fulfilled. Not only is she insightful, she is such a sweetheart! Her demeanor and professionalism helped us to feel comfortable and it shows that she genuinely cares. We will always remember Janet and how she made our first home purchase such a special time. I will be recommending her services to anyone and everyone!

What can I say; Janet is an asset. My family and I used Janet's services TWICE. Once when we moved to California from New Orleans, and again when our family grew and we were ready to put down roots. Janet worked with us to find a great rental house in an area that worked for both mine and my wife's careers. She found us a great neighborhood that put us near everything we needed in a house that we made many memories and friends in. Then, when it was time to buy a house, Janet listened to our needs and found us several suitable houses that fit our needs. Janet didn't stop there, either. She helped us coordinate with contractors, financial advisers, and any other personnel needed for buying a new house and moving in. Her communication with us was top notch, and acted as an effective bridge between our future lenders and us. Janet is the total package, and someone my family considers a friend. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent a house in Southern California!

We would highly recommend Janet! If you are looking to buy, sell or rent she is the go-to realtor. We have worked with Janet several times over the past 10 years- to rent, then buy and most recently to sell our home in Laguna Niguel. Each and every time she exceeded our expectations. She is diligent and knowledgeable about real estate in general and about the market in South Orange County specifically. She helped us navigate through a sea of paperwork and processes. We are thrilled with the results that she produced. You can feel confident that you are in great hands with Janet.

I have worked with other realtors for home purchases and feel that Janet is a fantastic realtor. She works quickly, effectively, communicates clearly and always with integrity. Her motivation and persistence helped us purchase a home in a challenging market for buyers. In addition, Janet has worked in this region for some time and has experience in various markets; as such she has many great resources to recommend for home related needs. It was a pleasure working with her and we could not have been happier with her guidance and representation.

Janet was an incredible resource for us as we looked for a new home for our family. She was available seemingly at any time everyday. She navigated us through some difficult situations with unreliable sellers and agents, and it was because of her personal relationships in the Realtor industry coupled with her tenacity that got us the house we wanted. There were multiple offers on our eventual home, and we are certain it was Janet that tipped the scales in our favor.

Thanks Janet, we look forward to having you over soon!

Janet helped me sell a home for which I was a Trustee. The home in San Clemente can be categorized as a flipper or fixer upper with all the issues surrounding such a sale. A complex real estate transaction.
Even before I selected her as a Realtor she provided me with insight information on neighborhood sales trends, searched title on the home.
More importantly - I understood immediately that she cared for me as a client, and who was going to give me her total support and commitment to. I was fortunate to have such a person on my team.
As we progressed with the sale - I trusted her judgment and integrity.
She is a true professional realtor.
I will recommended her highly, unconditionally, to anyone who is considering a Realtor.

Janet is a true professional and a pleasure to work with! We recently completed a transaction together. She worked incredibly hard through some tough challenges to make it a very smooth transaction. She attended multiple showings, inspections and went above and beyond to make sure every detail was taken care of on a very tight time schedule. It was because of her work ethic, professionalism, and trustworthiness, we were able to do a concurrent close ahead of schedule. It was a joy to work with her!

Janet Hagg sets the high bar for professional real estate service and sales. We feel the recent sale of our home in Huntington Beach, first day and at asking price, was without a doubt due to her exacting efforts. Throughout the entire process she made us feel like we mattered and we had every confidence that our interests were always the highest priority. Honest and working consistently with integrity and the highest level of expertise, we would recommend her without any element of hesitation. Janet was a rare find in a profession often filled with Realtors acting in their own best interest. We consider her a friend, and our representative in the crazy California market.

This was the third time that we worked with Janet on a home transaction over the past 14 years. This last transaction (sale of home) was not an easy one, but Janet went above and beyond to make it as painless as possible. She remained positive, enthusiastic, good-humored, focused, and supportive throughout the process. Janet also remained sensitive to the family dynamics involved in this sale which involved an out of state re-location. We would not hesitate to work with her again if we ever return to Southern California.

Janet Haigg is one of the most professional realtors I have known. My husband and I recently utilized her services to sell our investment condominium. Throughout the entire process, Janet was caring, conscientious and motivated. She was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails and phone calls promptly. I was especially impressed with how she dealt with our long-standing tenant in the condo. She was both patient and calming during the complexities involved in the transition.

We are now working with Janet to find our primary residence. She is extremely attentive to our needs and continually to strives to understand our likes and dislikes; even with those that are a little “outside the norm.”

We highly recommend Janet Haigg to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home. In this day and age, customer service is very important and we feel Janet is the epitome of customer service that will exceed your expectations.

Janet found us our dream home! She took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and went out and found it. Her tenacity is only matched by her personable yet professional style. We always felt that she was part of our team and truly cared about us and our needs. I highly recommend Janet Haigg to anyone buying or selling a home.

Janet was organized, thorough, and personable. She offered us an objective viewpoint on each house we toured, thereby helping us with our decisions. We found Janet to be knowledgeable about aspects of realty that surpassed just the legalities of buying and selling properties. My wife and I were consistently impressed by Janet’s willingness to research questions she couldn't answer right away.

Janet was always expedient in returning our calls, searching for properties, and setting up tours. When we ran into some trouble with our mortgage lender, Janet was instrumental at helping us navigate through the issue so that we could close on our home.
I absolutely recommend Janet to anybody looking to buy or sell a home!

Janet was a pleasure to work with and made the entire process painless. I was selling a home that had been rented for a few years and was not close to where I currently live. She seamlessly managed all the preparation of getting the home ready for sale. She was always immediately responsive and easy to communicate with. I'd highly recommend Janet to anyone looking for a great realtor.

I have worked with multiple realtors in the past. Janet was incredible to work with. It felt like I was working with a family member, and the personal approach we received was unmatched. The honesty and heartfelt recommendations we received when selecting a home helped us end up with the right home that we will enjoy for many years to come. We would recommend Janet to all of our friends and family, and hope to work with her again.

INCREDIBLE TENASITY, STICK -TO-ITIVE-NESS WHILE FACING MANY OBSTACLES AND SET BACKS.

SHE SHOULD TEACH

THIS WAS FOUND IN JUNK MAIL, SO THERE MAY BE A REASON OTHERS DON'T RESPOND

I have bought and sold numerous homes in the last 15 years, many of which were in a market other than where I lived. Janet represented me in the sale of my investment property in Laguna Beach. Her vast knowledge of the real estate market and experience with local contractors made the process of the repairing and selling the home an effortless and rewarding experience. I highly recommend Janet for your real estate needs in Orange County.

The purpose of this letter is to endorse my real estate sales agent, Janet Haigg, that I consider to be exemplary in her field.

First, to set the tone for my opinion, my background is that I have been a lifelong Orange County entrepreneur, served in D.C. as the first U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Manufacturing and Services from 2004 to 07 and a lifelong buyer/seller of real-estate.

Having recently closed one of the most difficult real estate transactions I have ever experienced, there is no question in my mind that this difficult transaction would not have resulted in success, were it not for the amazing diligence, perseverance and selling diplomacy of our agent Janet Haigg. In addition to being strategically smart, she is one of the hardest workers I have ever known, with the patience of a saint.

In truth, I seldom put my name of endorsement on anyone, but in the case of Janet , I do so enthusiastically knowing full well that she will meet or exceed expectations as she did for us.

In addition to this letter of recommendation, Harcourt Prime Properties has permission to give my phone number to any qualified prospective client with regard to Janet Haigg's professional capability.

My husband and I have been fortunate to work with Janet Haigg for several years now, and we highly recommend her. We have found her to be extremely knowledgeable, diligent, patient and honest, with an incredible work ethic.

Just this past year alone, Janet helped us sell two of our rental properties. As always, she handled these transactions with the thoroughness and efficiency we've come to expect with her.

I have sold and bought a fair number of homes over the past couple decades and have come across some great realtors. I recently sold my own home and I chose Janet to represent me. She certainly did not disappoint me. I got my asking price in a shorter than expected time frame. I expect a realtor to know the market and how to handle a perspective buyer. But Janet was one of the most honest people I have ever worked with. She is not afraid to speak her mind and is full of great suggestions. To summarize Janet professionally I would have to say she knows her job and has boundless energy to get that job done

Janet did an outstanding job. She was there for every showing to answer any questions potential buyers might have. She guided us through the selling of our home with the upmost professional. Janet also helped us in the purchase of our new home, which we are very excited to move in to. We would highly recommend her. Thank you again.
