Reviews

"Jan Emamian did what she said she would and more. At the outset of the process of selling our host, Jan helped us to set a simple, realistic goal: to sell our house as fast as possible for the most money we could get in a complicated market. She then kept focused on that goal and equally importantly, helped us to keep focused. Jan gave us every reason to have confidence in her. She never left us hanging, anticipated bumps in the road and helped calm our jitters when they got in the way. This may have been the first time we sold a house, but this was clearly not her first rodeo. The best advice Jan gave us was to use her amazing professional team to selectively enhance the house with fresh paint and to stage the house in order to help buyers see how our home of 22 years could become their new home. Jan and her team re-visioned the house and in the process generated 11 offers in a week, selling our home for $15,000 over our asking price. And Jan is just a nice person, a pleasure to work with. We cannot recommend her highly enough!"
- David and Tayreze Riemer
Selecting Jan Emamian was one of the best decisions we made in deciding to list and sell our Alhambra condo. From the first meeting, we connected. She had done her homework and came with strategies and plans with our interests in mind. Her advice in preparing the condo, staging, marketing, and keeping us informed yielded numerous offers within hours of the listing going live. And the end result was fantastic in meeting our expectations. We can’t recommend Jan high enough.
- Carolyn and Gary Strong
We recently closed escrow on a home in Glendora. We cannot express enough how helpful, attentive but most of all, patient, Jan was throughout the entire process. We couldn't be happier with our new home and much of that is due to her diligence and professionalism. We're truly thankful for her efforts on our behalf. She truly cared and protected our interests. Her advice and suggestions were invaluable. We were consistently impressed with Jan's high moral and ethical standards, and her relentless pursuit for perfection. She would promptly reply to our requests no matter how minuscule they may have been. Jan's ability to deal with individuals under intense pressure, proved to be a helpful asset for her and in turn for us. Her organizational skills are strong. Her compassion for other people however, remains her strongest virtue. My husband and I highly recommended Jan Emamian. She is a delight to work with and we know she will provide top service.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Jan. I was lucky to connect with her when I called about a house she had listed on zillow. I didn't know anything about her but she was persistent in her follow-up calls to me, which impressed me. Jan was everything I needed in an agent- patient, knowledgeable, professional and assuring. But she also gave me realistic expectations about the market and type of house I could afford. She was always very patient with my million questions. She never made me feel like I was being a pain (even though I am sure I was). She was really on top of new listings and made herself available within like 24 hours to look at places that I liked. I know there were many late evenings when she was working until late preparing offers for me. It was a really tough time to buy a house and we had to look at a lot of houses and make multiple offers. But she never made me feel like I was wasting her time. In fact, she was very reassuring that we would find the right house. And we did! With Jan, I felt like I had someone on my side that I trusted and that would fight for me. She was a great negotiator and stayed firm on what was important to me. In fact, I ended up getting the house for $20,000 less than the accepted offer. I feel very fortunate to have chosen Jan as my agent and would give her the highest recommendation!
- Melissa W.
Jan is amazing, dedicated and knows how to negotiate through any deal to help both sides close. When we worked with Jan, we were the buyers and had a 4 month old baby (our first). She helped us see the right path at all times during the 3-4 months we worked together, even guided us through that point we felt we'd seen EVERY house on the market and nothing was a fit for us. I remember the day Jan found the perfect home for our family, and then helped negotiate through a half-dozen critical moments where the deal could have fallen through. We are so happy Jan was on our team. She has the intelligence and firm but respectable negotiating skills to help!
- Bardia D.
What a pleasure it has been to work with Jan. She's professional, timely and efficient and understands her title as a Realtor. She constantly puts the client first and works tirelessly to make sure that she researches each and every vendor using any means necessary to ensure the highest level of customer service for her clients. I have witnessed firsthand Jan's ability to negotiate repairs on her clients behalf and works diligently to ensure a smooth transaction. Thank you for networking and thank you for your continued recommendations.

Jan is an excellent realtor to work with , she just makes the experience so much easier than it really is . She is true to her words , always answers your call, text and emails within minutes. very professional , polite and friendly . Jan gave me ideas and information that I had no clue on and at the same did not make you feel stupid when you asked questions whatever your concerns were , she is always there to answer them . We bought a house and within a few months she helped us sell the house and move to a location we love in Pasadena and made profit from the sale . I can't say enough about her , she is great and a friendship has come out of it.
- Elsa T
My husband and I worked with Jan and she was fantastic. She listened to our desires and concerns and took care of all the gritty details. She responds quickly to emails and phone calls and keeps an eye out for properties that she thinks would be a good fit. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for an amazing realtor. The market is currently very competitive and it is always good to have the right person on your side.
- Michael H.
Jan is the hardest working agent! She's very responsive, always returns phone calls and texts in a timely fashion, even closed on our house at her daughter's college graduation. She was great dealing with our particular tastes and working with us for five months on getting our dream home and multiple offers in this crazy market. I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell and who want a fantastic realtor who will take care of all the details. Call her today!
- Nina K.
Jan worked with me for over a year in finding a home. She provides honest advice and has your best interests in mind. She was very responsive and attentive when needed and extremely accommodating when it comes to a busy schedule. This was my fourth time purchasing a home and Jan provided everything necessary to make the home purchasing process smooth and easy. Highly recommended.
- David L.
I got to knew Jan through a friend who bought/sold his home last year. She recently helped me get my house in Pasadena. Absolutely amazing agent. Not only nice, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her work, she is organized, strong & reasonable in negotiation, also great at moving things forward. For instance, there was a little trouble/delay with my loan officer (choice of my own, huge regret, if you are trying to find someone, ask Jan and she will recommend someone great), she tried every way to push things forward, strongly & professionally. In the mean while she was trying her best to protect her client in case there was anything to happen. Also she kept me updated on anything and everything I need to know or to do, the entire process is smooth on her end. She is always punctual, and she helps you deal with a lot of things that you don't understand fully, or you don't have time to do--that's from looking at the house, to bidding, to negotiating the house, to inspections, to opening/closing escrow. If you choose her as your agent, you should know you are in good hands. Also during the time my house was in escrow, she help that friend of mine got a new offer, which she recommended to him. After talking and working with you, she will know you well and provide you the choices that you will really want. If there is anything in the future, i am choosing Jan again. Like i said, amazing agent.

I can't describe Jan and Payman in anything but superlatives. I ended up buying my townhome in Santa Monica in 2012. Jan was my agent and we looked for almost a year before landing that which fit my criteria. Jan was wonderful throughout the process from day one until the day of closing. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and very accessible. She made the whole home buying process a smooth transition, even though it is supposed to be a stressful process. Even after having finished my transaction in 2012, she has been helpful- for example, I recently contacted her for an interior designer recommendation and she immediately replied. Jan is wonderful. I have to say that Payman is just as wonderful. During my home buying process, my financing at the very last minute fell through. Luckily, Payman guided me in the right direction and I was able to still land my current home. I really can't say enough about Jan and Payman. Both are wonderful to work with and I know they will provide top service. Highly recommend!!

Jan Emamian represented us with our first home purchasing. She was really a great agent who worked tirelessly through the buying process. She made herself available even with our hectic schedules. She's very energetic, always respond to phone calls and email in a timely manner. Overall, she's a fantastic agent who made the buying process went by smoothly.
- Jody
Working with Jan was a wonderful experience. She was always well prepared, quickly responded to emails, and kept the process moving along by communicating smoothly with several difficult personalities and keeping them on task through a tricky loan situation. Jan was upbeat and supportive when the first offer fell through and happily devoted many weekends to help us find the right house. She was great with our young daughter as well, letting us get a few minutes to think and talk as we visited houses. We highly recommend Jan for anyone who is buying or selling their home.
- Recent Buyer
The Emamians found us our first two homes and we couldn't have been happier with either of them. Jan and Payman worked tirelessly for us. They are extremely knowledgable of the market. When looking for our current home, it had just gone off the market before I could see it, but that didn't deter them. They were able to convince the home owners to show it one more time. In addition to representing us as buyers, they also secured us a buyer of our first home. We were able to sell that home without ever putting it on the market. Their services didn't stop once we moved in. They helped us settle in with Little Legue information, finding a good babysitter and understanding our new city ordinances. I have nothing but good things to say about them.
- Chris
Where do I begin, my girlfriend and I couldn't possibly have asked for a better first realtor to have worked with. Jan clearly knew the realty market extremely well and was able to answer any obscure and nuanced question we had. She was also extremely responsive and willing to work around our busy schedules, so she made this entire (sometimes tedious) process as smooth as possible. She knew how badly we wanted this house, and she did everything she could to help us get it (AND WE DID! :D), and her experience clearly had a big part in this. I think the best part about working with Jan, was just how enjoyable she was to be around. She was so easy and fun to talk to, non-judgmental, and just all around a great person that I'm so happy to have entered my life. I hope that after this is all done, she will continue to be in our lives, as it's hard to find genuine, caring people like Jan, and I feel as though, just because our professional relationship may be coming to a close, that we have gained a new friend :). If you go with Jan, I promise you will NOT be disappointed, at all, ever.
- Katherine Pham
Jan has been such a wonderful realtor to work with. She helped us find our very first home. When I started this process, I did not have a realtor in mind and I had no idea what I was doing. I chose Jan because she seemed very nice and appeared to be a go-getter, and I am so glad I made that decision! From the beginning Jan has been diligent, organized, responsive, and knowledgeable. Not only that, but she is very fun and pleasant to be around, and she made this whole house-shopping experience enjoyable and much less stressful than I expected. When we found the home we wanted she fought for us and used her connections and expertise to help us submit the winning bid. I feel that I have not only found a wonderful realtor in Jan, but also a good friend. We could not be happier, and I will be recommending Jan to anyone I come across who is in need of a realtor.

The Emamians did a great job representing my wife and I in the purchase of our house in Pasadena. They patiently showed us homes and then were superb in negotiating the purchase. Very professional...we highly recommend them!

I had the opportunity to work with Jan for over two years and bought and sold a house and bought a town home in a very short period of time. She has been very patient with us and has made the journey of buying and selling a home seem easy and with her positive attitude we accomplished our dream of owning the kind of home that works for us. Most of all she was always there for us and if I had a question she would respond as fast as she could with answers, no matter what. Even though she has a family life of her own , she would never hesitate to respond. The reason we stuck with her was because she was very professional and at the same time showed sincere concern in making sure we were happy in finding what we were looking for. I would highly recommend Jan Emamian as a real estate agent.
- Recent Buyer and Seller
Jan Emamian is a real estate professional on the top of her game! She is knowledgeable in every aspect of a real estate transaction, a competent and fair minded negotiator, eminently trustworthy, and technology savvy. But what sets Jan apart from other real estate agents is that she truly advocated on behalf of our family and protected our interests. Jan was proactive rather than reactive in handling issues that arose during the transaction, and offered viable solutions rather than handing us problems to solve on our own. My family and I will always be indebted to Jan for handling the sale of our family home and helping us with ancillary support in closing our mother's estate with such competence, respect and kindness.
- Recent Seller
Jan is amazing. She's helpful, she'll stick with you through it all, and you can tell she cares. We made it a long search for her, but she was a trooper through it all. Jan helped us find our first home and we couldn't be happier. Will highly recommend to anyone who asks.

We were lucky enough to have our first home buying experience be a great one with the help of Jan. She is trustworthy and will work with you throughout the whole process.

Superb, professional service when purchasing in an older, somewhat esoteric building. Very responsive throughout the process, and ensured that buyer/seller/lender communication was smooth. As a first-time buyer, I appreciated the even-handed, trustworthy advice provided throughout the purchasing process, as well as the efficient organization that made each step of the transaction make sense.

I could not be happier with the services provided by Jan Emamian. I met Jan a few years ago when I was looking to purchase a home. Out of all the realtors I spoke with, Jan stood out for her friendly personality and obvious drive and knowledge of the real estate market. Jan worked very hard to find me the perfect home, and through the process she and her family became close friends of mine. When it came time to sell my home, Jan was the obvious choice. I had a lot going on in my life and so I did not have much time and attention to give to the sale. Jan took the reins and took care of everything; I did not have to worry about anything at all. And she did such a wonderful job with all of the preparations, from retaining an amazing stager to making sure the gardening was pristine and the yard clean and picked up at all times. Jan and her team truly went above and beyond the call of duty. My home received 12 offers and the selling price was $106,000 over the asking price. The entire process was smooth and easy, with excellent communication between myself, Jan, and the home’s wonderful new owners. Thank you Jan!
