“Jane helped me sell my home and helped me get top price, and I can’t say enough good things about her. First of all, she had great suggestions for home improvements prior to putting my house on the market: replacing counters, interior painting, odds and ends; secondly, she helped find people who made these improvements at very reasonable prices. Finally, she helped me sell my home during a very tough year. After selling my home, when we bought our new home she helped us negotiate with the seller, which saved us considerable money.”
“Jane was our agent for selling our Mountain View condo, and she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable every step of the way–
- Helping us prepare the unit for sale;
- Recommending and dealing with contractors on site;
- Knowing the market & keeping on top of the comparable sales to help us set the “just right” listing price;
- Following up on offers and potential buyers;
- Negotiating with buyers on our behalf and doing “due diligence” on their loan approvals;
- Making the sale at a great price!
Jane was a pleasure to work with in advising us, listening to us, keeping us updated, and working diligently on our behalf. I highly recommend her as a real estate agent for the greater Palo Alto & Mountain View area.”
“Thank you for everything you did for us throughout this process for almost two years. There is no better professional and friend to have guided us throughout this journey. You educated us with patience, care and sensitivity to our needs. Your service, integrity and skills are extraordinary and greatly appreciated. Thank you whole heartedly for your caring, professionalism, integrity and wisdom We thank you for the gift of you.. ”
“As we count our blessing at Thanksgiving——thank you for all your help and hard work in selling our house. You made a difficult process much easier for us. You are a real pro!”
“I worked with Jane Volpe at Midtown Realty in 2012 to sell a relative’s home in Midtown Palo Alto, and then in 2015 for selling mine, and in both cases she made the experience as smooth as possible.
Obviously, it has been a sellers’ market in Palo Alto for several years, and I have no doubt that I would have sold both homes for a good price regardless. And, of course, I won’t be able ever to work with Jane as a buyer (since I am retired and won’t ever be able to move back to Silicon Valley).
But, I’m pretty confident that Jane would be exceptional to work with for a home buyer as well as seller. The difference with her is not just knowledge of the area, though she obviously has that. It is also her strong practical sense of what does or does not need to be done to a given home before sale.
Jane will not try to convince a seller to do expensive repairs or fancy staging if that would not gain a higher price. And if work does need to be done, she is in contact with people who can do cleaning or simple repairs affordably. Costs for other needed things such as photography are also extremely reasonable with Midtown Realty.
I’m sure Jane’s great attention to detail would also be of great benefit to a buyer. And for sure, so would her excellent communication. I know that Jane will never interrupt a meeting with one client to take a call from another, but equally, if you call her you get a call-back as soon as possible. Or, if like me you prefer e-mail, she will write you back — within minutes, in my experience. If you work with Jane, you’ll never be left wondering what is going on.
In short, Jane Volpe covers all the bases, she keeps you informed, and she is a joy to work with. Best of all, she is all about getting a job done, selling your home, or (I’m sure) finding you one. Unlike some other agents I have come across elsewhere, she is not interested in self-promotion or telling you how wonderful she is, she is just interested in getting the job done.”
“We have always felt she is a warm professional with our best interests at heart.”
