What Clients Are Saying

Jan Newsome and her associate Debbie Golden came to my home for the first time having thoroughly researched the sale of comparable properties. They considered carefully the special features of my home and listed it for more than I thought it might bring. When offers came — and they came quickly — Jan provided invaluable guidance, helping me negotiate a better price than I had dreamed possible. She reviewed the buyers’ home inspection before presenting it to me, so that instead of being stunned and dismayed by it, I was able to respond to the buyers’ requests in a reasonable manner. At every step, Jan was professional, forthright, honest. She made sure the closing documents were correct and that I got every dollar coming to me. I would absolutely hire Jan Newsome the next time I sell a home.
Peggy Bogardus
JAN WORKED VERY HARD FOR US WE HAD MANY SHOWINGS FAR MORE THAN TWO OF MY FRIENDS THAT HOMES ON THE MARKET.THEY LATER CHANGED TO JAN. SHE WAS PROFESSIONAL AND KEPT US INFORMED DURING THE ENTIRE PROCESS
Pat Gorgone
Jan was wonderful to work with. She was knowledgeable and kept us updated regarding our market. She sold two of our homes which were at different price points and knew how to market them to different levels of buyers. Her advertising was the best in the area. She was realistic about pricing our homes and knew when to suggest a price reduction. Her written communication is very professional. I would highly recommend her as an agent.
Pamela Winchell
Jan was not only highly experienced in the Brevard, NC and surrounding area real estate market but was also pleasant to deal with. She kept us informed throughout the process and even treated us to dinner afterward. I would highly recommend Jan Newsome!
Jackie P. Moore
Jan works FOR each of her clients This was my fifth experience with selling a house. My house was listed with another realtor prior to a transfer to Jan. She considered my needs , even though I had moved out of state, contacting me via e-mail and phone to keep me informed and to assist with negotiations etc .. Jan is what you hope for when you contact a realtor.
Gini Reese
To share some hope with others who might be a bit concerned and/or nervous that their house will not sell fast enough these days. My husband, Mark, and I felt the same tinges just this past year (2012) when we decided to make the move from Connestee Falls into the downtown area of Brevard.
We were introduced to Jan Newsome of Keller Williams Realty–a Real Estate sales person ‘extraordinaire’. Jan made us feel comfortable from day 1. She walked us through the marketing process. Her photos of our home and the marketing materials she came up with were just beautiful. Jan helped us market and sell our home within 2 months after her marketing strategies were in place in a marketplace where properties linger on the market in exces of a year.
Not to say all days will be easy. Having to go through all of the in’s and out’s of a sale can be trying but Jan is kind, thoughtful and very experiened in what she does. She helped keep our spirits up, made us laugh and ullimately sealed the deal.
We think very highly of Jan. She continues to be our friend and I cannot say enough about her abilities to make things happen in a housing market that can be nerve racking these days. Jan is a go-getter with a lot of style and she has a personality that will make you smile.
Barb Belli, Connestee Falls
I wanted my home sold fast. I never thought it could be sold this fast. I wanted to accept the first offer, but Jan convinced me to hold out as it was too low. It was against my better judgment to not take the offer. After 2-3 weeks, I was certain that I made a mistake. Jan told me to be patient as she knew something would be developing. Like a miracle, another offer was forthcoming. Jan structured the deal so that I could move when I wanted, didn’t have to concern myself with the furnishings and she had the law firm come directly to my house in advance for my signature on all documents. Working with a professional makes all the difference.
Joe Vatalaro, Orlando, FL
In my life, I take pride in surrounding myself with only the best people, whether it be my stockbroker, accountant, business associates or, in this case, my real estate agent. When it came to selling my home, I naturally contacted Jan Newsome who is recognized for her expertise in marketing and selling homes. Jan convinced me to purchase my current home when I was insisting on only renting. One of my best investment decisions ever. Jan eventually suggested that now was the time to maximize on my investment. Following Jan’s advice and counseling, I reaped an almost unfathomable profit in excess of 4 times the original purchase price in a relatively short time period. Jan has been invaluable to me and was able to deliver a
“hassle-free” experience as promised.
Alan Jacobs, Feather Sound, FL
We have purchased and sold several properties using Jan Newsome as our realtor. In representing us when buying a home, we found Jan’s Contract knowledge to be the best and her advice and assistance with difficult sellers to be invaluable. In listing a home with Jan, there was a true Marketing Plan put into action. She goes way beyond simply entering a property into the MLS. Throughout the listing period, Jan utilizes various advertising venues, designs professional, color glossy brochures, stages promotional events and implements a diversity of marketing techniques to facilitate a sale. Her listings are out in the forefront to attract buyers while likewise encouraging area realtors to show the home. Jan has dedicated many years to her profession and it shows in the results she achieves.
Lois Nelson & Joel Seaton, Belleair, FL
Jan, we were business friends then became close personal friends. You have handled several real estate transactions for me and have never let me down. The market may have let me down, but it was apparent that you always had my best interests at heart. We’re both moving into new locales – stay in touch.
Linda Pollard, Sand Key, FL
I was extremely concerned about the complexities of selling my home, particularly since my husband had passed away several years earlier. Jan removed all my anxieties and handled every detail from beginning to end. Jan not only promised a detailed marketing plan, but delivered that and more. Her constant communication regarding buyer’s comments & local market activity kept me in the loop. She negotiated a final selling price higher than my initial expectations. True to her slogan ……. “Don’t go to the beach without me.”
Alice Martin, Clearwater Beaclh, Fl
Jan Newsome sold our Brevard home quickly, in just a few months. Jan’s expertise is in marketing, reaching future buyers and realtors. Jan gave us advice on how to prepare our home for the sale, what to repair and stage. Jan went the extra mile and procured an excellent photographer that portrayed our home in its best light. Jan sent out an attractive direct mail postcard to markets that particularly enjoy the area. She responded quickly and kept us in the loop on all comments from potential buyers and sellers, so that we could react. Each time we wanted to meet with Jan, she went out of her way to see us. I highly recommend Jan to sell your home. She is a kind and caring person, taking initiative when needed.
