Jane worked with us for a year before we decided to sell. She provided us with market data and local comps. Our house sold in 1 week and for the price we asked. She not only was our realtor but she became our friend as well. I highly recommend her she will stay with you for the long haul.

I’ve moved many times and worked with many realtors and Jane is by far the best. My husband and I relocated to Seattle from Florida in early January, and Jane’s help throughout the process has been fantastic. She has tirelessly and enthusiastically helped us discover Seattle’s many neighborhoods, and jumped in the car to show us properties at the drop of the hat. In a market where inventory is practically none existent, Jane managed to help us find a wonderful home in Edmonds. She even helped us locate contractors to get much needed estimates for repairs during the inspection process. All that and a dog lover too! I highly recommend Jane.

Jane helped us sell our previous home and purchase the home we are in now. Her familiarity with the market and her negotiating skills helped make both transactions as low-stress as possible. There were several complicating factors on the sellers’ side when we purchased our new home and Jane had the experience and patience to help us navigate the process smoothly. In addition to her professional skills and knowledge, she is a delightful person and a pleasure to work with.

Jane was very helpful throughout our home buying process. As first time buyers, we had tons of questions and Jane was patient and knowledgeable. We had some hiccups with the seller, and Jane was right there to support us through the challenges and questions.
Our search area was quite small/specific, and Jane found us a great condo exactly in our preferred neighborhood. We love our home and are so grateful for Jane and her expertise.

We found Jane after using a real estate referral service through our bank. We had used this service in the past and had been disappointed in the realtors we were matched with. However, Jane knocked it out of the park and we cannot recommend her highly enough. She is amazing.
We traveled across country for a whirlwind house buying trip. We were unfamiliar with Seattle in general and the real estate market in particular. Jane was extremely well prepared for this challenging task. She listened to what we told her we wanted and had many homes for us to consider upon arrival. She kept refining our search and even adapted when we made a complete 180 degree change from what we had originally requested. She was very responsive, she knew the market well, and she provided great advice.
We closed on our home purchase from out of state and Jane assisted us with so much beyond what we would have expected. On top of that, Jane is a wonderful person with a great sense of humor. Her assistance has been above and beyond, helping us to find the perfect home during a difficult market for buyers. We would unreservedly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Seattle.

I found Jane though the USAA Movers Advantage program. Although Jane is known as the “Pet-Friendly REALTOR”, non pet owners, DON’T let that scare you. I do not have any pets (yet) but found that Jane was not just limited to helping those with pets. I was a first time home buyer, and because of the internet and HGTV, I just knew I knew as much as Jane, if not more! So you see what she had to deal with! I am not one to give praise when praise is not deserved, and Jane deserves MUCH praise. I’ll spare you all the boring details, but once Jane and I had the chance to talk, get acquainted and get on the same page, there was nothing I had to do but shoot her an email, call her or text her and she was on it. She even went to preview the houses for me (since some of us have real jobs). I can’t speak highly enough of Jane. I can say, thanks Jane, for putting up with me and my wicked ways. If you are a pet owner, first time home buyer or just in the market to buy a house, give Jane a call. Great first time experience for me!

I have dealt with a multitude of real estate transactions in at least 5 different states. My experience with Jane is by far the most positive and professional I have ever had with a realtor. I arrived in Washington on a company reassignment and had a short time frame to find a house. The market conditions were extremely challenging, but she was able to help me find a wonderful home, at a great price, within my time limit. Jane’s responsiveness and expertise were instrumental in the success of my transaction.

As first time home buyers, we hired Jane to be our agent. Jane took the time to explain the process thoroughly to ensure we had a good understanding of our contract, deadlines, etc. She always made herself available and never made us feel like we were bothering her. Jane prides herself on building relationships – not transactions. I’ve referred Jane to friends, colleagues and clients. When the day comes for us to transition to a new house, Jane will be the first person we call.

I was paired up with Jane a year ago Thanksgiving to begin the hunt for my first house. I knew virtually nothing about the process and didn’t have a clue where to start – enter Jane! Immediately she gave me names of lenders to interview, walked me through a whole educational program she had created for first time home buyers and had me start coming up with a list of what I was looking for.
The market was extremely difficult as I was looking in a very popular area of Seattle and was at the low end of the price range. Jane was so knowledgeable about the area and would pre-screen all of the houses to help me understand the pros and cons before I got there so I wasn’t surprised. She even laughed and was fine with the gaggle of family members and friends who would come along to check out that weekend’s collection of houses!
When it came time to make my first offer (we would make quite a few over the next 6 months) she walked me through every step, explained everything and answered my thousands of questions. She was reassuring and I knew she was always fighting for my best interest. She got to know me well enough she could tell when I was secretly panicking and when I was feeling comfortable.
Even after a few months and several more unsuccessful offers when my heart got heavy and I was convinced I wouldn’t find anything, Jane looked at me and said ‘i’ll keep looking while you take a break’. Amazing! She kept looking and we found a house. The perfect house!
I made an offer in May and she got me set up with a fabulous inspector. She was committed to making sure everything went through without a hitch. Once all was complete, she didn’t just hand me the keys and drive away – she continued to check in on me and make sure everything was going alright. I really felt like she was happy that I was so happy and that’s what makes her so wonderful to work with. I’m in no hurry to buy a new home as I love my current place but when it’s time, Jane will be my first call no question!
The first time we saw the name Jane Maxson was when she sold a house around the corner from us so quickly, like immediately, that it caught us by surprise. I remember telling my husband that we need to keep her name for when we were ready to make a move. A year later, Jane helped us find a wonderful new home in the Greenlake area and sell our other home. All of which she did with tenacity, skill, and grace. My husband and I trusted her, and she didn’t let us down. Our old home sold after three days on the market for above the asking price. All throughout the process of looking for a house and selling our house, she walked us through each step. We would definitely recommend Jane to anyone looking to sell or buy.
If you want a great house in this volatile market you’ll need a realtor like Jane Maxson to seal the deal, Others may send you pictures and drive you around not even getting close to what you’re looking for. Jane hears what you need and looks for it. She’s very knowledgeable about the homes and the areas; she’ll get an offer in before others have a chance. She’s the most proactive realtor I’ve ever met. She was very helpful in keeping us ahead of everything that comes your way in the home buying process. Jane is an experienced, knowledgeable realtor and that’s why I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house in this market. I would never have gotten the house of my dreams if it weren’t for Jane…
Jane Maxson is an outstanding real estate professional. She listens carefully to your needs and heart’s desire in order to find you and your family the “perfect” match of a home. The fact that she’s also a “Pet Friendly REALTOR” makes it even cooler since she takes into consideration the needs of your fur baby or other special family member.
I recommend her highly. You simply MUST call on her…

My wife and I moved up from Portland this fall and have worked with Jane over the last four months to find a house. She has been the consummate professional, tolerating our inconsistency in search requirements and providing the information and services necessary for us to be comfortable in buying in such a volatile market. She is willing to help out in any way from finding college students to help with moving to finding and working with contractors. She is a dog-lover and has great sensitivity to the needs of pet owners…We can recommend her without reservation.

Thank you for helping me find my lovely little house. I talked with a lot of agents, but I very quickly felt comfortable with you and confident that you were the right one to help me through the process. Finding and buying a house can be stressful. You provided a steady, calm influence, always keeping a good sense of perspective and a good sense of humor.
I would not hesitate to provide a recommendation for you. In fact, I already have and I am so pleased that you found a home for my friend. Deanna and I agree that your knowledge and professionalism inspired confidence in us both. We also agree that it’s just plain fun to house-hunt with you!
