"I have done three real estate transactions with Janine over the last three years (and almost a fourth). She expertly handled the sale of my two homes and also a home purchase. Her pre-sale preparation advice was spot on and she looked after my interests in all three of the deals. There would have been a fourth home sale this year if she hadn't talked me out of selling my house. She pleaded with me to keep it as a rental when I wanted to sell it due to a job change. She knows the rental market and felt the rent income would more than cover my monthly expenses. She was right. I will now build equity with that house even though I don't live there. She provided me with everything I needed to screen the tenants and prepare the lease agreement. I can't image many real estate agents who would talk you out of selling your home! But that is who Janine is. She always does the right thing for people! Talk to Janine if you are looking for a great agent!"
- Michael T, Placerville (October 2018)
"I can't say enough good things about Janine. She is an icon in the El Dorado County real estate market. Anyone who has worked with her directly will be able to attest to her professionalism and creativity when selling a home. When she listed our home she gave us many helpful ideas to prepare our property for lookers. We did everything she said and it worked! Right before she put our home in the MLS she called us and suggested that we raise the listing price by an additional $24,000. Who does that? We had many showings, multiple offers and our home sold for over asking price! Her negotiation and communication were great. We highly recommend Janine for all things real estate!"
- Don & Carrie R, El Dorado (October 2018)
"Janine has assisted us in our real estate transactions 3 times. She and her team are highly energetic and enthusiastic. Call them! You won't be disappointed."
- Matt & Kirsten R, Placerville (September 2018)
"Janine and her assistant Ashley were a breath of fresh air after a less than positive experience with another realtor with a different company. Their responsiveness and knowledge of the local market helped us market and sell our property. Something we had not experienced with our previous agent. Even when the inevitable challenges in completing the sale reared their ugly head, Janine jumped right in and handled it like a pro. Thank you Janine and Ashley! We really appreciate your hard work and will definitely recommend you to all our friends."
- Allen & Kim H, Placerville (July 2018)
"Janine Waggener is the best in the business and a God send. She helped me sell my home. Gave advice, options, and shared her knowledge. She was on point with each and every suggestion. She knows the area and the market. If you are looking to sell or looking to buy she has a wealth of knowledge and her assistant Ashley is a blessing. You can trust her and know that she has your best interest always in the forefront. As I read the other reviews I realize how she has touched each and every one of us. Janine, you were a dream to work with. Thank you!"
- Pam C, Placerville (July 2018)
"As with any business transaction, dedication to the profession, honesty, integrity and lastly the ability to negotiate on behalf of the client. I’ve sold two properties, bought two properties and currently have one property listed for sale. I highly recommend Janine and her assistant Ashley."
- Van D, Placerville (July 2018)
"Janine was simply amazing. She jumped through many hoops for us buying our first home. We are so excited to have purchased this house and we couldn't have done it without Janine's expertise and experience. Thank you!!!!"

"In April 2017 I found out that I was going to be transferred to Huntsville Alabama if I wanted to continue working for my employer. After a familiarizing trip to the Huntsville area I decided to make the move. Due to that, I needed to sell my home, and then contacted Janine Waggener to represent me as my listing agent. Months before the home went on the market Janine offered invaluable suggestions to increase the sales price of my home and to make it more desirable to a wider base of buyers, and her ideas worked! Not only was I moving from my home and a shop of 25 years that sat on a 10 acre parcel, but I worked full time and I am single! Janine's visits to my home were enormously helpful giving me advice on what to repair and how to prioritize my projects. She introduced me to great vendors in my area who got my home in tip top shape: a professional house cleaner (Van Cleave Cleaning), to clean my home before going on the market, and after the sale for the new owners. She also connected me with a gardener (Jill Wild, One Gal Gardening) to spiff up my landscaping, and a cleanup man to haul multiple loads away. Janine then staged my house using my things and some of her own. It turned out great and her photographer knocked it out of the park. We had many showings and received multiple offers. I accepted an offer well over asking price with a backup buyer under contract, as well. There were landmines along the way, to be sure, but Janine put out the fires and made it all work. I drove away for the last time and a few days later escrow closed. It was a miracle! It was incredible how it all came together in the end. Needless to say, Janine is a shaker and mover, and when done, she is a true friend for life now."

"Their staging of the house she had it sold that first weekend it was on the market. Janine's photographer put together a very impressive visual presentation using the 'Ken Burns' photographic slide effect. At a price she set and that sale was more then I had expected. I was extremely pleased. Very high recommendation - Five Stars! I found Janine and Ashley very professional and a joy to work with."
- Harry C, El Dorado (March 2018)
"We bought a house in Oregon and moved there before we put our El Dorado County house on the market. It was an older home with some issues, many of which did not come to light until we were already moved. Janine Waggener and her assistant, Ashley, were really on the ball and kept us informed about everything that arose. They let us know what the problem was, got our permission to resolve it, then they made the arrangements (with plumbers, electricians, etc.) to have it fixed, and followed up to make sure it was done correctly. We felt like we had left them a lot to deal with, but they handled everything with grace and patience. Not sure we could have ever sold that house without their help. They are the best and we could not recommend them more highly!"
- Bill & Jaynie L, Placerville (March 2018)
"I was referred to Janine and Janice by a friend when I was looking for a house in Grizzly Flats. Janine and Janice really worked as a team, with their assistant Ashley! We currently live in the bay area. As one may know, living in the cities are different from living in the mountains. Things like a septic system, for example, was new to us, therefore we had lots of questions around that and other stuff. Both Janice and Janine answered my questions patiently. Janine was traveling during our escrow transactions. But she was reachable through the emails, answering my inquiries, reviewing the home inspection results, suggesting things to ask the seller to repair, etc. After the escrow was closed, Janine and Janice worked together to have a welcome package for us: have the house professionally cleaned, which again helped us a great deal because of the fact that we were 3 hours away! She also prepared a vendor box after the escrow was closed for us to pick up the house keys at our convenient time, instead of the conventional escrow recording day! How grateful we are! Their assistant Ashley was very helpful as well. She was very responsive and clear in communication! Janine, Janice and Ashley truly worked as a team! I will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs real estate service in their serving area! Thanks, Janine, Janice and Ashley!"

"We are just getting a chance to give a review as we are still busy working on our new home but we wanted to make sure to give kudo's to Janine Waggener and Janice Davies for being such a huge help in our home purchase. Janine was full of information and was great in helping us know the area and necessary point of contacts that we needed. We were transitioning from another area and had sold our home and we're on a timeline to find a home that suited us and our home business. Janine was a wealth of knowledge. Janine had us work with another realtor in her office to go house hunting. Her name was Janice Davies. We adored her she was accommodating, ran us all over the place and ultimately helped us close on our new home. We had so much fun running around with her, it was such a pleasure and much needed during the stress of moving. We would highly recommend this team as they will direct you in the right direction and take into account what you truly are looking for in a home. Thank you so much guys! You both were great!
- Kelly & Ron A, Citrus Heights (October 2017)
"Janine Waggener was recommended by Bernadette Casey-Durazzo, a close and well-regarded friend at Coldwell Banker in Burlingame. I am most grateful to both Bernadette, Janine, and her team for what I experienced as I offered on three properties in the Placerville area and finally landed one. Janine is a real pro. Experienced in all phases of real estate, whatever she said to expect always came to pass. She clearly understands the Placerville area market and has a sharp eye for quality and value. Her experience in the area allows her to recommend the best people for all the work that needs to be done when buying property: inspections, repairs, and the rest. Perhaps most importantly, she provides the leadership for a team that works together efficiently and seamlessly. Both Denise and Ashley provided flawless service throughout the searching and buying process. On a more personal note, Janine is an excellent communicator. Her enthusiasm during all phases of the work is unmatched. She clearly has the temperament and skills to do excellent work in this demanding field. Working with Janine and her team has been a lesson in proper procedure and has been a real personal pleasure."
"Janine was referred to us by our Coldwell Banker real estate person in Pioneer California. We listed with Janine on Friday and less than two weeks later we closed at the "FULL ASKING" price minus a small amount for good will repairs. We have had many real estate transactions in El Dorado County but NONE have ever gone so quickly, smoothly or as professionally as working with Janine Waggener from this Coldwell Banker office in Placerville."
- Dr. Dean & Jennifer S, Placerville (August 2017)
"Janine is a firecracker! She has been doing this a long time and truly knows the ins and outs of the business. Take her suggestions to heart. She KNOWS what she is doing. She was able to get us top dollar for the sale of our home and get us into our dream property in the forest! It took A LOT of work and all the pieces needed to fall in to place... Although I think Janine may have helped guide (or gently nudged) the slow-moving pieces a bit! She is a force to be reckoned with! We are so pleased that we listed our property with Janine and her team. She has got an all star team that gets things done. Special shout out to Janice and Ashley... thank you both! We knew from the very start that our deal was a long shot... needing to sell two properties in a fairly short time frame. Janine and the team made it happen... all while staying upbeat and positive. I hope that we never need to buy or sell again but if we do, I pray Janine is still around for us to turn to. It is easy to see why she has been voted "Best Realtor" for the last 5 years in a row! Trust me... you want her to be your agent. You want her on your team. Hell, you want her to be your team captain! Keep on rockin' it Janine and thanks... for EVERYTHING!"
- Andrew & Andrea A, Pollock Pines (August 2017)
"Janine helped us sell my mom’s Placerville home this year, and she was an amazing agent in every respect. She has so much expertise and gave excellent advice on the right time to sell and how to prepare the house for selling. The timeline she gave us kept us right on target during the whole process, and the way she kept us informed and handled everything took all the stress away -- we had confidence that she was really looking out for us and her kindness was evident throughout. And she got us a great price! We’d certainly choose her again."
- Judy & Alison C, Placerville (June 2017)
"Janine helped me sell my parents house in Camino after they passed away. You can imagine how emotional and stressful that can be. She and her assistant Ashley were the rocks for us to lean on, and they were there through the whole process. We had a lot of work to do, and Janine and Ashley showed up and helped me make a list of what needed to be done to prepare the property for sale. Once we had put in a lot of elbow grease, not to mention heart and soul, they were there to help with the finishing touches, photography and marketing. We received multiple offers, sold the house quickly, to the right buyers. Janine continued to be there with me through closing helping to schedule tests and reports, and working with the title company. She really put together a superstar team to help us through the process. Her positive energy and common sense honesty is refreshing. I would recommend her highly for any real estate transactions in the Placerville area."
- Diane G, Reno (February 2017)
"I highly recommend Janine. She was recommended to me by a satisfied customer in the Pleasant Valley area. Janine's high energy and expertise eased my anxieties. My house sold for full price within Janine's projected timeline. Janine and her assistant Ashley go above and beyond what is expected. You can't go wrong with Janine!"
- Joan N, Placerville (September 2016)
"This was my third transaction with Janine and I am about to close my fourth! She just knows how to get a house sold. Maybe special powers! Wink wink! I will continue to refer and use Janine!"
- Missy P, Placerville (July 2016)
"We sold an older home with many challenges. Janine is very knowledgeable and was able to get the house sold. There were a few glitches along the way, but through Janine's masterful negotiation and communication skills the house was sold and even closed a day early. Janine and her assistant Ashley kept us informed throughout the whole process. Even though the process was touch and go sometimes we enjoyed working with Janine and Ashley. Great people. Highly recommend them."
- Bruce and Sandy M, Placerville (March 2016)
"Working with Janine was a real pleasure. Her enthusiasm is infectious and her market research was spot on and thorough. She didn't just do a snapshot overview, but looked in depth to the different homes listed and at how they differed or were similar to ours and listed ours for a top but realistic price, and our home sold for full asking price thanks to Janine! She is professional yet personable and friendly, and her positive outlook is very valuable during what can be a stressful time. She is very knowledgeable and her experience really shows - timing is key in real estate negotiations and she knew the details to watch for in a complicated process to keep our interests protected. Janine was also very helpful in staging our home and arranging a top notch virtual tour which showed prospective buyers the true beauty of our home. She's the best, and Ashley, her assistant is invaluable. We highly recommend Janine, and would call her first thing if we ever decide to buy or sell again."
- Steve and Liz R, Somerset (December 2015)
"Janine knows how to get top dollar for your property. Just be smart and follow her advice on how to stage and get outside property ready to make a good impression."
