AUGUST 2017: SOLD OUR HOME IN BILTMORE AND HELPED US PURCHASE ANOTHER HOME IN COUNTRY CLUB AREA. Jana is absolutely amazing. She worked with us for over two years while we looked at over 100 homes until we found the right one. She went above and beyond both in selling our home and buying the new one. She is a complete perfectionist in selling, staging and inspections. . She is truly extraordinary - we have never had a realtor like her. If we could give 5+ stars we would because she's extraordinary.
February 2017: SOLD HOME IN PARADISE VALLEY - Jana is a top agent. She has sold 5 properties for me ranging from $500,000 to $1,800,000 and has been excellent. She knows what it takes to Sell a House! Jana works with you to make needed changes - she doesn't just list the house she shapes it into a product for the current market. The money I invested to change things really paid off. Bart Faber

Here are the reasons why we recommend Jana:
1. She always placed our interests ahead of hers.
2. She was always available.
3. She was physically present at every showing.
4. She gave us written feedback about every showing, which was important to us in assessing how our property was positioned in the market.
5. We received a disproportionate number of showings because of the way she presented our property in MLS and on the internet, including the photo shoot, floor plan and descriptive material about the home and neighborhood.
6. She persevered unwaveringly for a long time during a recovering market until we were able to sell our home for its fair value.
7. She is accomplished at selling and building lasting relationships.

Thank you for all your help over the years. We have really appreciated your professionalism, client service, knowledge and ethical approach to your job. You are the best. Terry and Carol Gilbert

"I've been a real estate broker/agent in Arizona for over 30 years. My firm, Ross Brown Partners, specializes in commercial office and industrial properties. When I needed to lease and sell a residential property in Arcadia I used Jana. She did a wonderful job and I was very pleased with her performance and integrity. She is honest, open, and a good communicator with a very deep and broad knowledge of her marketplace. And that is what I look for in a real estate representative."

"First Time Homebuyer"

There was no way I could have purchased my first home without Janas help! She truly eased my anxiety through the whole process and had my back! Honestly, I will never work with anyone else besides Jana because of her proactive nature and knowledge of the evolving housing market.
Once we found the perfect home, Jana was great about explaining the complex paper work process and made this first time purchaser an expert by the time we closed escrow. I have already recommended her to my friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. I could not have asked for a better realtor and Im proud to put my name on any recommendation on her behalf!

"Jana Vida is not your typical Realtor. While she is success oriented, she finds her success not in moving from deal to deal leaving unsatisfied clients to fend for themselves, she truly builds relationships. Her prior history in the service industry as a consummate professional allows her to create a comfort able level of trust that tells you this will be a good experience. Her moral compass keeps her humble while excelling in her profession. While dealing in high end properties she doesn't feel the need to oversell herself or her properties. Both speak for themselves!" Richard / June 2013

"Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Jana to find a new home for my growing family. Jana was extremely knowledgeable of the market and its competitive nature. She did not waste our time with houses that did not meet our criteria just to make the sale. Jana showed the utmost professionalism and always made me feel in control of the situation. Jana was very attentive to my work schedule and never made me feel like an inconvenience with a late afternoon viewing in the AZ heat. She promptly returned all phone calls and emails with great answers and advice. Her efforts well exceeded my expectations and I would recommend her to anybody."

Sold Family Estate
Jana, I want to thank you again for all you did to get Dad's house sold! You're awesome at what you do! You are very professional and friendly to work with.
I can't thank you enough for going the extra mile and staging the house. That made such a big difference in the way the house looked and I'm sure the way potential buyers perceived it. It is a huge weight off of my shoulders and an amazing peace of mind I have now.
You can believe that if I hear someone in need of a realtor I'm going to be handing out you name and phone number. I wish you much success and happiness!
Thank you with all my heart! Sincerely, Beth D.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Relocation - Out of State Buyers
The Web Portal was wonderful! We could view and evaluate all the homes that fit our criteria and communicate our selections over the internet - and communicate our selections.
We were moving from another state and the portal provided us very useful information, from tax and previous sales data to MLS details. The maps helped us learn the area.
The smiley face evaluations allowed us to provide Jana with our housing preferences and viewing schedule.

Family downsized to a new home
Jana, I was impressed with the professionalism and skill you exhibited today. Your sales proficiency was obvious in your presentation and attention to detail in your follow-up.
At one time in my career I had over 300 salesmen working for me and we spent millions of dollars trying to obtain similar results. Thanks Jana

Out of State Buyers - Family from New York State

Finding a home for that proverbial "second" phase of life is not easy. It had to be perfect - especially in a place called Paradise Valley!
Our past experience at an Open House with a different real estate agent was not good - the agent tried to convince us that the house we were standing in was perfect (it was not perfect for us) was not the answer. We needed someone willing to start with our "checklist" - we wanted our "must haves" and we hoped to get as many "nice to haves" as possible.

After another weekend day of strolling thru open houses - more
for fun than ready to buy - we happened across Jana Vida at the end of a long day. Jana was taking down an "Open House" sign. We said we'd come back
another day, but she graciously insisted she'd take the time, if we wanted, to see
the house. We walked up a short hillside driveway and through a gate into the
backyard when it hit us - our first must for our 2nd home was a "view"!

After walking through the house at hand and having a really nice chat with Jana, she quietly concluded what we knew by that point - this was NOT the right house for us. But if we were
interested, she could help us find the house that would fulfill our "checklist"
for the perfect home. And that she did! Within days we had a blank checklist - literally - to fill out with our "must haves" and "nice to haves".

During a trip to Arizona the next month, Jana had identified about a dozen
houses which satisfied ALL of the "must haves". As you might imagine, one house stood out above the others - the "must haves" were better and the "nice to haves" were more abundant. From there we never had a doubt that Jana worked on our behalf to negotiate a fair price that not only gave us the perfect PV home (we had learned by then that residents prefer PV) but a great value as well.

We have enjoyed the first year in our perfect "second" phase home more than we ever imagined. It was as simple as a checklist, and a qualified Realtor willing to do all the home-work for us! Thank you Jana.
