"Janet was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made our purchasing experience a pleasurable one. Several months before our move was even official I reached out to Janet who immediately began assisting us with searching for a home and even showing us a couple in the Winnipeg area. I felt this was exceptional service given the fact our move was not definite and she was under no obligation but spent the time and resources to assist anyway. Janet maintained excellent contact throughout and kept us informed of any new listings that came up and dedicated ample time for us during our house hunting trip. During the house hunting trip we had our young children with us and she was very patient and accommodating during all the showings. One example of her going above and beyond was taking us to the local library so our children could grab some books on her own library card to help occupy them during the showings. Janet also assisted us with locating day care and anything else that we asked that were not necessary associated to purchasing our home. I believe it's the little "extras" that are not expected that make your buying experience exceptional versus satisfactory.
We were very pleased with Janet and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor!"
-Brad and Jamie
"I met Janet at an open house she was hosting and right away I knew she was the lady for me, I felt comfortable with her and that she would be compassionate with my needs. She was always there when I called her and if not she returned my call immediately. She was available to show me any and as many homes as I wanted in order to find the right home. She gave me guidance when I needed help making any choices and if she didn't have the answer to any of my questions she would find the answer to any concern I might have had. She is very friendly, trustworthy and a joy to have worked with her to find our wonderful new home."
"From our initial meeting with Janet Marshall, we found her to be very helpful, professional and took a personal interest in helping us find our dream home. We didn’t have a realtor at the time we met her and she offered to set up an on-going search for homes for us, specific to our criteria, price range and area.
Janet was very patient and willing to help us find houses for sale in various areas outside of the city. She was very knowledgeable with every house we viewed with her. She knew what the house is actually valued at, red flags to look out for when viewing a house, how long it’s been on the market, etc. And whenever she didn’t know the answer to one of our many questions she would quickly find out through the other relator, the sellers of the house or the RM to provide us with an answers we needed to make an informed decision.
When we sold our house with her she gave us tips when renovating our house – telling us what to focus on to make sure we get the most return on our investment. We followed her advice and when it came time to put a price tag on our house she explained the best strategy to get the most bids and highest offer on our house. We took her advice which resulted in us having 9 offers on our house the highest offer being 45k over asking. We were thrilled and very happy we followed her advice.
Throughout our entire experience working with Janet, we would not hesitate to recommend her services to our friends and family. We are so happy to have her there to help us through a stressful time renovating and selling our house and looking for and buying a new house. She was supportive, knowledgeable, professional, honest, easy to work with, never trying to sway our decisions. Thank you Janet for all your hard work. We really do appreciate it."

"We were first introduced to Janet while attending a Home Buyers workshop we found in the Leisure Guide. As first-time prospective homeowners we were impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm. When we were ready to take the big step in buying our first home, we contacted Janet and asked her to be our agent. Buying a home, especially for first-time home-buyers, can be a scary process but we could not have been more pleased with her as she immediately put us at ease and dispelled any anxiety we felt. She was completely dedicated to the task of finding us a home from the start and was unwavering in her support and guidance. We were ecstatic when Janet found us the perfect home in only three days! I can honestly say we would not have the house we have now without her. We’ve now been in our house for a year now and couldn’t be more pleased. I would highly recommend Janet to any prospective homebuyer."
"Janet is a great real estate agent. She advised what price to list the house, competitive with the market, which resulted in a lot of interest from prospective buyers, especially at the time of year the house needed to be sold. I can’t say enough about the effort Janet put in to accommodate prospective buyers; Janet went out of her way, going the extra mile to show the home. Janet is very hard working, is great to work with and always keeps her focus on you, her client, in selling the house resulting in a quick sale. When the offers came in, Janet went through each one, explaining and advising, which helped to choose the best one. I really enjoyed working with Janet, she has a great personality: friendly, caring, outgoing, motivated and always greets you with a smile. I recommend Janet to anyone!"
"Janet is a super real estate agent with her client’s best interest at heart. From the time my daughter started looking for her first home to the date of possession Janet was there every step of the way providing guidance and expertise. On September 15th, my daughter took possession of her new home and to our dismay we found several things in the home not working, Janet was there immediately to assess the problems. She contacted the vendor’s real estate agent to advise of the issues and went the extra mile to find a resolution, always keeping us informed of any developments. Let me ask you, what real estate agent does this these days, not many I bet, but Janet did. We have the greatest respect for Janet, not only in her ability to sell homes but fact that she truly cares about her clients whether they are sellers or buyers. I would, and have recommended Janet on numerous occasions, if you are looking to buy or sell a home and you want an individual that you trust and know that she has your best interest at heart give Janet a call, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much Janet"

"Purchasing a house for the first time is without a doubt, one of the most intimidating events an individual can partake in during their lifetime. If uneducated about these matters, and you decide to go ahead with your purchase, countless questions and worries can go unanswered, and you could potentially end up with problems you had never seen coming. The smartest decision you can make when buying a home, whether it’s your first or your fifth, is to hire the professional services of a certified Real Estate Agent. They will be able to assist you with absolutely any questions or inquiries you have about the entire home buying process.
Janet Marshall of Royal Lepage Realty Winnipeg was my realtor, when my fiancé and myself, were in search of our first home. We had first been introduced to Janet at a “first time home buyers seminar” at our local community center, where I was surprised to find out how ignorant I actually was to the whole process and all it entails. My ears were glued to her as I listened and took in all this information that I had previously been unaware of, or misinformed of, for that matter. I am a very stubborn person by nature who thinks he can do everything by himself, but after sitting in on this seminar, and taking in all the pertinent details she explained to the class, I was completely sure I would be needing help with this, and because of the confidence and knowledge she displayed, I was sure my help was going to come from her.
One of the most admirable traits that Janet carries is her ability to make people feel comfortable. Our adventure was easy because I didn’t leave any meeting, whether at the office or to view a home without knowing what I wanted to know. That in itself shows how dedicated she is to her profession. She left us confident in making the decisions that we did, and now we are in the most perfect house. It is completely suited to our needs in every way, and we would of never have found it without her. She wanted to find us a home, not just a house, so she took time to get to know us and find out a little of who we were. Doing your job is one thing, but caring about your job is another. I have never witnessed the efforts put out by anybody as much as Janet did when doing their job. And the punctuality. Wow. I thought I was good! She’s always on time and will work around your schedule which made it very uncomplicated when it came to viewing homes. We really couldn’t of had a better experience.
From the seminar we first attended to the final signing of all paperwork, Janet was able to meet and surpass any expectations we had set for this experience. Yes buying a house for the first time is very intimidating, but with a pro Like Janet Marshall on your side, intimidating is merely a word."
-Jared Ewonchuk, “One happy home owner.”
"We write to say that Janet Marshall is a very reliable, hardworking agent who is down to earth when it comes to finding you a house to buy in this busy market environment.

"Just wanted to send you our testimonial so that you can put it on your website and help more people with your exemplary skills and caring approach.
My fiance and I were beginning the journey of finding the right house, and had been to numerous open houses with nothing peaking our interest. We were excited to see a house in Elmwood, and had booked the appointment with Janet Marshall.
The house was not for us, but we could tell Janet had a quality about her that we had yet to see in other real estate agents. From that point on we conducted all house hunting with Janet exclusively.
About six weeks into the search, Darryl had found a cute house in St. James on MLS and had gone to view it. On the day of the bidding, Janet met us at the house so that I could view it. I instantly fell in love and had that instinctual 'this is it' feeling.
We put our bid in and got the house! We are so very happy and are still in awe at how perfect this house truly is.
Janet Marshall was the most professional, caring and loyal real estate agent that had every corner covered every step of the way. She was knowledgeable and answered any questions we had, calling back promptly, and made us feel as if we were here number one clients.
After we moved and were situated (at least somewhat) Janet came over to see how much we loved our house and brought with her a lovely yellow rosebush and an incredibly thoughtful and useful homeowner basics book that is fantastic.
Thank you Janet for your wonderful service, warm personality and your passion for finding our perfect home!!"
-Darryl & Caitlin
"Janet Marshall has a keen eye for detail and judges prices accordingly. She is very prompt with her daily tasks and is available any time of the day to answer any question you may ask. The Realtor and Seller relationship on the whole was a very positive experience.
Thank you and A Job Well Done."
-Monika and Jan
"We first met Janet Marshall when she showed us a home that was listed with Royal Lepage. We had been looking at homes for a few of months, however, we did not have an agent.
We explained to her what we were looking for as a family, and so our journey began. During this journey, we felt like we were all family. Janet took the time to build a relationship not only with us, but our children. Of course, this was very important to us, and we were looking for a new home for our family.
House after house, we dragged Janet through St. James, looking for our perfect home. We always felt that Janet was on our side. Not once did we feel that we were bothering her, or she had better things she could be doing with her time. After going through approximately a dozen homes, we found the one we wanted.
Not only did Janet help us upgrade in a larger home, she also sold our house. Again, Janet took the time going through every detail with us to make sure we got the best out return out of our home…..which we did!
Our experience with Janet was amazing. I have nothing but “bouquets” for her.
Thank you Janet for making our experience a journey we will never forget."

"We recently bought our first house, and Janet Marshall was our real estate agent. Janet was always professional, and it was a pleasure to work with her. She is a lovely person, who works hard on behalf of her clients. We are very glad to have had her help, as buying a house (especially for the first time) can feel overwhelming. Janet was supportive, caring, and capable, and we appreciated her knowledgeable assistance. If I could recommend someone to help you with buying or selling a house, it would be Janet Marshall."
"Janet Marshall is a person you can trust not only as an agent but also as a friend. From the first day we met when you approached me at home about buying our house we knew you were "THE ONE". We really liked your subtle aggressiveness and determination to find us a house to buy. Your personality and motivation showed you to be an energetic and persistent person to work with.
You went above and beyond keeping in touch with us and answering our questions. The way you responded with emails and phone calls made it so convenient and easy. You were working exclusively for us in our best interest. You listened to us and actually heard what we were saying and turned our needs into reality. You gave us such great advice as we were negotiating something that means so much to us.
Thanks so much for your eye for detail, your honest opinions, your determination, hard work, communication, experience, and your smiling face every time we met."
-Maureen and Edgar
"Janet Marshall with Royal LePage was a great agent to work with. She was very pleasant, knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs. She did an excellent job helping us navigate through the competitive market here in Winnipeg."
"I first met Janet, when I went out to see a house in the Transcona area.
I was with my dad, and my 2 year old daughter. I was trying to get a feel for the market, and gain some experience looking at homes. I had owned a home previously, but had to sell it due to a divorce. Trying to look for homes as a single parent, on one income, left me skeptical on what I could afford and what area I would be stuck living in. But this did not phase Janet at all, she wanted to help, and she became my agent that day.
Janet showed me that home,but offered me advice and her services to assist me in reaching my goal in buying a home. She gave me some helpul brochures and a list of things to do, like staying in close contact with my mortgage rep.
Janet sent me plenty of homes by email to look at, and it helped me see what I had very little time to run out and see. She would modify the searches, to help me see what I could afford, and what was going up for sale in different areas.
She not only showed the homes, but she used her gained knowledge in what things to look out for when buying a home, looking at the plumbing and electrical, and the condition of the foundation. I was very impressed. I thought that most agents would not really assist with this.
Many months had passed, summer was underway. I had just switched jobs and was in a better position to look at homes in the South area of the city. A real nice home popped up in St.Norbert, everything lined up perfectly. Janet helped me decide on a bid that would save me some money, she saw the realtor selling the home that day right after our meeting, and by the evening she was congratulating me on being a new home owner. I felt great. I got exactly what I wanted, and I have a new home in St.Norbert close to my family, and plenty of room for me and my daughter.
I am certain, without Janet's help, I would not have got this home. She even gave me a lovely house warming gift, that went above and beyond my service expectations.
She excelled in every area of service, with sound advice, and she helped me discover, truly what I wanted."
