My objective is for all my clients to say this has been their BEST real estate experience ever! I have been selling Real Estate across the Peninsula for 30+ years through many market cycles. My goal is simple: to have my Sellers receive the most and my Buyers to pay the least in flawless transactions. If you ask them they will tell you I am the best Realtor on the Peninsula, and that they come to me because of the great experiences we have had working together!

What Janis's Clients are Saying ...

"I have had five transactions in Los Altos and Mountain View over the past 20 years with Janis Ahmadjian-Baer . She is honest, professional and fair but she also can be tough when necessary. I have been continually impressed over the years as she has maneuvered and negotiated multiple transactions for me.

I highly recommend Janis!"

"We worked with Janis in three transactions over 30 years. When we needed to move into a bigger house in Menlo Park, she managed both the sale of our then-existing home and the purchase of our new (and current) one. The sales were linked and it was a difficult time in the housing market. Janis handled both transactions masterfully, including how to prepare one house for sale and honing in on the best choice for the next one and then using her incomparable negotiating skills to get the best deals on both ends. We could not have been happier and the place she found for us is still exactly the right one, 29 years later! So when it came time last year to sell my mother’s house in San Jose, there was no question that Janis should be the Realtor. What she did for us was little short of remarkable. Janis took on the responsibility for a complete makeover of the house. All we had to do was clean it out. What a transformation! So when she marketed it, she had exactly what buyers in that desirable part of San Jose, with Cupertino Schools, wanted and it sold in a flash for a price that we had not imagined possible and guarantees my mother’s lifetime security.

Janis went far beyond what most any other Realtor would do. My siblings and I routinely sing her praises, nearly a year after the sale."

"We were introduced to Janis by a very trusted friend who used to be a real estate professional herself. We were looking to buy our empty-nester house in Woodside and Janis helped us go through 7 rounds of negotiations, getting us our dream home for well under list price. Naturally, when it came time to sell our rental property in Menlo Park, we turned to Janis again. She used her excellent negotiation skills, and familiarity with local real estate professionals, to help us sell for way more than asking price. We then sold our longtime residence in Palo Alto, with Janis' help, during a slower time for real estate transactions. Once again, she delivered the goods, landing multiple offers, and we were able to sell for more than 10% above asking price. In all these transactions, Janis is the consummate professional, responsive and responsible. She takes care of all the preparations for the listing, and was an invaluable resource for reliable contractors when we had work done on our rental properties.

Whenever the house purchasing bug bites us, we always turn to her. We would not trust anyone else in the Bay Area."
