ABOVE AND BEYOND
"ABOVE AND BEYOND
Always go the extra mile
"We have worked with Mike and Janice on buying and selling several homes. We couldn't recommend them more! They know the area inside and out and helped us in find the perfect home for our family! Since they work as a team, one of them is always available and they always go the extra mile to help you through the buying/selling process."
Best Real Estate Company by far
"We think Remax Checkmate is by far the best real estate company in the Johnson City, TN area. The broker, Larry McClanahan, has been in the business over 45 years.
"Both Janice and Mike were wonderful to work with during our house search. They were committed to showing us homes that we were interested in based on our description of what we were looking for and to showing us homes in our price range. They let us have plenty of time looking at houses but also were very efficient in getting all the houses in that we wanted to look at on any given day. They went above and beyond their duties in helping with negotiations and closing details. We have already recommended them to 3 other couples!"
"Janice is a professional in every sense of the word - compassionate, helpful, knowledgeable, detail-oriented and genuinely concerned about her clients. The level of advertising was exceptional - our home was always listed in real estate books published monthly as well as in a local newspaper. We appreciated receiving weekly reports about web site activity on our listing, to keep us "in the loop." Janice's level of service is far above the minimum needed to help her client sell a home. We have nothing but praise for Janice, Mike, and the entire Re/Max staff. Thank you!"
"Both Janice and Mike were helpful and efficient in the sale of our house. Communications was extremely accurate and quick using email, text messaging, and phone calls. The experience of the team helped in getting a very quick and reasonable offer."
Enjoyed working with Janice
"Janice helped my wife and I find our perfect home when we relocated to TN for a new job. We could not have been more pleased with her work. We truly enjoyed working with Janice, and she went out of her way to help us thru every step of the process from introducing us to the area all the way to closing on our new home. Janice is professional, extremely knowledgeable, patient, and went above and beyond the call of duty multiple times for us. She really looked out for us, and it was obvious she had our best interests in mind at all times. Her advice was spot on, and her insight into the housing market in the area was unbelievably valuable in helping us navigate thru our search for our new home. On top of the fact that Janice is the consummate professional, she is also simply one of the nicest and friendliest people you will ever meet.
Exceeded our expectations
"My wife and I have used Mike and Janice to purchase two homes and sell two homes and each time they exceeded our expectations. They are exacting, attentive and above all personable. You will never feel like a client while in their care."
Exerted extra effot
"Janice and Mike were great to work with on the sale of our condo. They are very professional and exerted extra effort to sell our listing. They keep you informed of all showings and give you great feedback in a timely manner. I highly recommend them and know you will be extremely satisfied with their service."
Experts in their field
"Janice and Mike McClanahan are experts in their field. We moved to Johnson City, TN from Memphis...which feels like a world away...and is a different culture altogether. Our move had to be accomplished long-distance and quickly, as we were transferred to this area to begin a new job and were selling a home we had lived in for 27 years. Janice and Mike made our frequent trips to Johnson City profitable -- they always had multiple listings set up for us to look at. Janice helped me secure a rental until we could sell our home in Memphis and buy in JC. In the meantime, I was able to begin my new position without the worry of where to live or what homes might be available. Janice was a friend to me as well as an expert agent, and I will never forget her kindness. We love our new home and the neighborhood we live in here in JC. We can't say enough about our experience with Janice and Mike McClanahan. They get our top rating!"
"Great professionals to work with. They were very helpful and successfully sold our house. I was out of town for the time our house was listed. They were very helpful in locating an electrician, A/C technician, etc to repair needed issues.Thanks, Max"
"We listed our home with Mike & Janice McClanahan in October 2012. Very professional team with supporting staff that gives them a leg up on other real estate firms in the area. Our house sold in less than a month after listing it with RE/MAX Checkmate."
"Janice was a very helpful realtor, listening to my feedback about the homes we visited in comparison to my needs and adjusting the next homes she showed me accordingly. She also knew the area and was able to provide good comps and good advice. It made the home-buying process much easier. When my first load of laundry (despite a good home inspector) resulted in a basement full of sudsy water, Mike came over and not only found the leak but called the builders, who were on the doorstep with a shop vac within the hour, soon followed by a plumber. That was the only major hiccup, and I appreciated Mike and Janice's help!"
"I highly recommend Janice & Mike McClanahan for your real estate needs!
"My family recently moved to Jonesborough, TN, from Battle Creek, MI. Janice was very informative regarding local properties and video taped walk through of houses when I was unable to attend in person. My start date was also moved up and she was extremely adaptable regarding my new buying timeline. We ended up with the perfect house in the perfect location. Our family is extremely happy with Janice and would highly recommend her to anyone buying a house in the greater Johnson City are."
Kept us informed
"We were extremely pleased with Mike and Janice. Their efforts sold our house when others couldn’t. They kept us informed as to the progress on selling our place. The advertising they did was always great. Updated photos of our house to show the place to the maximum benefit. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Mike and Janice."
"I have used the Mother and Son team of Janice and Mike McClanahan twice. When I bought my condo here in Johnson City and again when I sold it. They are very knowledgeable of the area and all the current real estate laws. We had some problems with both my seller and most recently the buyer and they were very supportive and knew how to handle these situations. I would definately recommend them to anyone buying or selling.
Makes the home buying experience easy
"Mike was excellent to deal with and very responsive with any questions that I had. He made the home buying experience easy, and was very thorough through the entire process."
Our best move
"After having our house on the sales market for 6 months with another realtor and almost no showings we took our business to Janice & Mike at ReMax. That was the best move to get our home sold, it was on the market for 30 days and we had a contract. We moved to Florida but soon realized that we needed to go back to Tenn. We got in contact with Janice and Mike and they found us the house that we are living in and we really love it.They did everything in their power to make the entire process go very smooth. They are people that we have come to consider our friends first and also people that know how to get things done. We highly recommend these two hard working people to either sell your home or help you with a new home...Boyd and Kathy Wallace"
"My house was difficult to sell, because of the age, location, and competition in the area. I had it on the market for a long time with an other agency. The McClanahan realtor team did an excellent job for me, in a short time, because they have a large volume of potential buyers viewing their listings. It had to be the perfect fit for my house, and Mike found them."
Perseverance paid off
"Mike and Janice listed our home. Janice, in particular, took many opportunities to showcase it for us through newspaper listings and open houses. Janice was encouraging when we would get discouraged. House was listed for about a year before it sold, but perseverance finally paid off!"
Personalbe and Compassionate
"Very personable, compassionate and caring throughout the whole process: really appreciate Janice and Mike very much and highly recommend them to help you buy or sell your home.
"Janice McClanahan was our realtor on a condo we purchased in Johnson City. She showed us numerous sites with the specifications we were looking for. She was prompt in returning our calls and available when we needed her. We finally made an offer on a condo and she negotiated a fair price between the buyer and the seller. She worked particularly hard on securing papers from a non-responsive HOA. Other family members have used Janice as a realtor and we have all been very pleased! We highly recommend her!!"
Simply the best!
"Mike and Janice have helped us buy and sell several homes. I'm always extremely pleased with their service and highly recommend them to anyone selling or purchasing a home. They are simply the best!"
"Janice was so helpful to us while buying a new home. We are new to town and she helped connect us with service providers in the area to meet our new home needs."
Straight to work
"und myself needing to sell multiple estate properties in the last few months. We were given Janice and Mike's names through relatives in the East TN area.
Super to work with
"Moving to an area where we knew no one, Mike was super to work with. He took extra time with us to assure we felt comfortable about the area. He made himself available via personal visits, email and texts, we always felt comfortable with the home buying process through Mike. He set us up with everything from a Vet for our dogs to contractors for some work we needed done. I would recommend Mike and RE/Max at the highest level."
"Janice McClanahan is THE BEST agent in the tri-cities. She has a large agency, lots of experience and represented me with both a home purchase and condo sale. She offered advice and also listened to my ideas and worked with me to make sure I my purchase and sale were in my best interest.
The ultimate professional
"We have worked with Janice for about 18 years, both as buyers and sellers. She is kind, honest, and the ultimate professional. We have consistently had very easy, pleasant transactions. After buying properties and selling several others, we wouldn't change a thing. SHE IS GREAT!"
They work as a Team
"Janice and Mike work as a team and as such are readily available to answer any questions or give updates. They were extremely honest throughout the process and seem to a vast knowledge of the local real estate market. I credit them for producing the sale of our home in a difficult market."
Thoughtful and precise
"Third or Fourth property Janice and Mike have sold for us over the last 15 years in the Johnson City Marketplace. I find them to be very easy to work with, thoughtful and precise with every detail to complete the transactions."
Vast amount of experience
"There is no question that both Janice and Mike have a vast amount of experience in the real estate industry. They were the most professional agents we have delt with over the years. Honest, open and helpful in both selling and buying our homes. We recommend them to our friends and family in the area."
"Very knowledgeable about the area. Knowledge of the area and of listed properties saved me time and frustration. Mike showed me A LOT of homes. He was always willing to get me into a property . Very flexible with scheduling."
Working with the right agent is critical
"Finding the perfect home can be a daunting task. Combine that with moving across the country, and the stress is compounded, ten-fold. Working with the right real estate agent was critical for us. Our key criteria? An agent who had a thorough knowledge of Johnson City real estate, who would quickly help us familiarize ourselves with the area, and direct us to the best community to fit our needs and lifestyle.
Works very hard
"Janice sold my house April 2012. Our home was on the market for about 2 years. She worked very hard to sell our home. She always kept us updated on our showings. Janice has a great knowledge in high end homes. I feel she is one of the best Realtors in the Johnson City Area. I would highly recommend Janice to sell your home."
Makes the process easy
"It is our pleasure to refer Janice and Mike McClanahan as real estate agents for anyone trying to buy or sell a home. Their team at Re/Max made the process of selling our house easy. Mike was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our house to attract buyers quickly, and his advice worked. What we appreciated most is that Mike was readily available to us and returned our emails and phone calls promptly. We highly recommend their team for your real estate transaction."
