What They’re Saying...
"House hunting while living out of state (as well as in the midst of a pandemic) is not for the faint of heart. We were so glad to be introduced to Jan to begin this task. Not only was she super responsive, she was able to hone in our needs during the search for our home. From consistent communication to marathon showing days, Jan was an absolute joy to work with! Prior to this process, if you had asked me if I would ever purchase a house after viewing it over Face Time, I would've fallen over laughing. Because Jan was able to build that trust with us rapidly, we were able to make this decision with confidence."Adam Bernstein & Rachel Gaylord
"Jan was an absolute delight to work with right from the start. She immediately got a sense of what we were looking for and helped us consider various options, offering perspective on value, match for our priorities and desirability. She did market research and guided us on our offer and negotiation process. She was a true advocate. Her network of real estate related professionals (mortgage brokers, inspectors, etc ... ) were all equally at the top of their game. We consider ourselves lucky to have found her, and we would recommend her very strongly."Ferit Albukrek
"We called the online site for Realtor, to express interest in a property in Rhode Island and were connected to Jan Malcolm. Since that time we have spent many hours with Jan looking at property and land in the state. She has proved to be an outstanding find for us. She gave us superb insight into the various municipalities in the state. She introduced us to Meridian builders and we made the decision that we would buy a piece of land and have Meridian build us one of their impressive houses on it. Jan was very supportive to us as we put in bids on three separate pieces of land, unfortunately we could not get the landowners to agree to our pricing levels and so each one failed. None of this reflects on Jan who remains one of the pearls of the Real Estate business in our eyes."Gerry & Jill Beddall
"My husband and I looked on and off for years for our "forever home." Jan never gave up on us knowing in her heart that there was a house out there. When the right house came along we were the only people to look at it, made an offer and it was accepted the same day! Same scenario with the house we were selling. With everything happening so fast, Jan was cool, calm and collected making sure all the t's were crossed and i's dotted. She was the calming that we needed. Thanks Jan for sticking by us all those years and playing a very important role in helping us find the perfect house for us."Diane
"Jan helped my wife and a I buy our first home. Being new to the area, we weren't sure where to begin. Jan was recommended to us from a family friend and we couldn't have been happier to work with her. From the start she made us feel like family. She warmly welcomed us, took the time to listen and understand exactly what we were looking for. Found us the perfect home and made sure every detail was accounted for. She made the process seamless, fast and, remarkably, enjoyable. Jan, we cant thank you enough for your hard work and assistance, and are so happy in our new home."Brandon and Jen Martin
"Jan has been our realtor for many years. For us, she was the perfect fit. She's smart, enthusiastic, and super knowledgeable about the local market. She helped us get a couple of mildly complicated transactions through the process without a problem. I would recommend her to anyone and would never think twice about using her again. Oh, and in addition to all that, she's a terrific person and an absolute joy to work with! We love her!"Larson Gunness
"We had an incredible home buying journey with Jan Lyle Malcolm. She is thoughtful, knowledgeable and patient. She sold our first home (unexpectedly) fast in 2017-it went under agreement in four days! My husband and I wanted to find our "forever" home with our two small children, but the time crunch was evident. This is not an exaggeration, Jan took us to over fifty houses, and she was always patient, supportive and understanding if it wasn't the "right" one. She never pushed or pressured us, her goal was to make sure we bought the right home. Luckily, we love Jan's company (and she's great with kids too) because we spent so much time together during that time! We closed on our home in 2017, and Jan kept searching. She really knew and understood what we were looking for, and she was determined to find it. Almost a year later, a house came back on the market and she urged us to go look at it again. Her patience paid off because it was the right price, right time and the right house! It was exactly what we were looking for, and she knew it. We are so thankful for Jan. Her guidance, professionalism and patience sets her apart from so many other agents. If you're looking for someone who TRULY cares about finding you the right house, work with Jan. She is one of a kind!! "Courtney + Ryan
"Working with Jan gave me a new respect for the Realtor profession. She is definitely a rare breed. Her professionalism, caring, kindness & knowledge sets her apart from anyone I have ever worked with. She made me feel very confident that she would find that special place for me. True to her word, she did it!!! Very, very happy with the outcome ... a heartfelt "thank-you" for all your extra efforts!!! You are my go to Reatlor."Kathy Gruca
"Jan is not only fabulous at her job, she is such a lovely, caring women. She really listened to me and my husband and found us the perfect house so fast! Faster than we ever thought. She helped through the whole scary process (buying our first home!) and gave us amazing advice. I am so pleased we had the pleasure of having her as our realtor. I really couldn't recommend her more!"Paige Ophelia Garcia
"We were ready to sell our home in Barrington and purchase a new one in a neighboring town. Jan, a family friend, was our choice. Her caring personality as well as her professionalism shined through. She answered our questions with her in depth knowledge. She sold our home and found us our new home. It was a positive experience all around."Ann Piper
"Working with Jan to sell my home in Barrington was one great experience. She took me through every step of the process, got me organized, properly priced the property, and sold in just a few days. Jan has the experience, expertise and knowledge in this market and clearly demonstrated this to me in the successful sale of my home. I cannot recommend her more highly, she is simply tops!"Edward Marecki
"Working with Jan to sell and purchase a home was not only enjoyable, but also extremely helpful. Jan's decades of experience with the Barrington market made us feel secure that the offer we were making was competitive yet still within our price range. Working with Jan during a very hot Spring 2018 market made the quick decisions we had to make to secure our new home less stressful for us all. Since we bought a new home before selling our current home Jan's confidence and expertise eased the anxiety of this situation and helped get our home ready to sell. The full PR package put our home in the perfect light to get an offer at 5 hours and a signed P&S in just 48 hours. We couldn't have been happier to work with Jan and Residential Properties. We went with the best in the state and couldn't have had a better experience. Thank you, Jan for being so wonderful throughout the process."Claire Phipps and Michael Sousa
"We couldn't of been any happier while working with Jan. From purchasing our dream property and then selling our house in record time, she helped us along at every step. She picked up our phone calls at all hours, had our best interest when showing up properties, and stopped by our house countless times. Jan is truly a professional in her industry and we are beyond honored to call her a friend." The FerreirasVanessa Ferreira
"Jan was awesome! We really appreciate all the work she did for us. Without her I don't think we would of been able to get the house that we got. She is really great at what she does, I would recommend her to anyone!"Kyle Garcia
"I had a difficult sale for Jan to handle due to my having a tenant and being an out of state landlord. There were many pitfalls and personality challenges involved in my house sale. Jan stepped up to the plate and with grace, perseverance and determination helped me hire an electrician, hire a contractor, hire an exterminator and even attended the closing as my representative. Through it all she kept her sense of humor, smiling personality and always had a shoulder for me to lean on. All in all, she was amazing."Kit Schiller
"My husband and I met Jan Lyle Malcolm from a rental listing she had when we were relocating from Florida to Rhode Island. Our relationship started via the phone and internet from another state. Although we did not end up taking her rental, she had made such an impression on us that we knew she would be our realtor when we were ready to purchase a home in the Ocean State. Six months later, we began our home search and a great friendship was born. Our running joke is that she is a "full service" realtor - for entertaining our daughter so that we could walk through an open house to showing us the same house (the one we purchased) a dozen times to friends, family and contractors. She has a lovely personality and an uncanny ability to anticipate your needs, know when to give you space or when you need her expertise. Jan has proven to be a great resource for us - for all things New England and we would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor. It's obvious that she enjoys what she does, and in turn, she is very good at it."Michelle and Eric T
"I met with Jan in July planning to put my house on the market. I was expecting it to be on the market for a few months given the housing market at the time. It was anything but that. My house was listed at the end of August. We had our first showing on the first day it was listed, had an offer the next day and by the 3rd day we signed and accepted the offer. In the meantime, Jan showed me about ten houses. She helped me to find the perfect house. We put an offer and signed the contract by the following week. In a week ,she managed to sell the old house and buy the new one. This was totally unbeleivable. Jan helped with every aspect of selling and buying a house. She helped from the color of the wall to getting an inspection before the real one. This helped to get the house in tip top condition and ready to move in. Jan gives honest and pratical advice. She gave us the tools we needed. She even helped us find the right mortgage and made the closing day as smooth as possible. We closed on the old house in the morning and the new house in the afternoon. Her patience and calm was extraordinary. I had 100% confidence that she has our best interest at heart. Whatever the problem, Jan had a solution. You can't find a better agent than Jan Malcolm"Sharareh G.
"I was in the market for my first house and met Jan at an open house. Through conversation with her, I realized she had helped friends purchase their house in the same town. I loved how much information Jan had about Barrington as she grew up here and knew so much about the town and schools. Plus she was very familiar with the seller's agent which made for excellent negotiations for me. All around a wonderful experience."Maura C.
"I couldn't recommend any realtor more than Jan. She did everything in her power to foster the sale of our home (in a very tough market) and helped us find and purchase a home on the other end (in a record speedy time-frame.) Jan is professional, knowledgeable and truly an expert in the Rhode Island real estate. Her positive attitude is absolutely infectious to buyers, sellers, other realtors and everyone (including pets) she comes in contact with. Would not hesitate to call on her again if we have any future real estate needs."Sheryl R.
"My husband and I worked with Jan for a year. She was very responsive and patient. At one point we decided to suspend our search for a 2nd home in RI and there was no pressure from her. Instead, she waited until the spring and then reached out to see if our plans had changed. They had, and we renewed the search, once again. Jan, although not as familiar with the area of RI upon which we eventually focused, was wonderful about spending hours in the car with us driving through neighborhoods so we could get a feel for various areas. It is also important to note that Jan quickly understood our taste and eliminated homes based on her knowledge of what would make sense for our family. We found the entire experience of working with Jan to be very comfortable. I would recommend her without hesitation."Anne and Rick B.
"With Jan, we not only got a realtor, we got a new friend! I would say we were relatively demanding customers, and Jan was there for the challenge, always responsive, always with new ideas, always one step ahead of us, knowing what we wanted and what we might like before we even realized it. She listened carefully to what we were looking for but also pushed our boundaries. She was fun to work with and her company was always enjoyable. After she helped us find the perfect house, we were actually sad the house-hunt was over because we would be seeing less of her!"TJ and Megan D.
