Janie is the best - I highly recommend her!

I didn’t find Janie, but she found me. She texted me to offer her real estate services, and I knew from our communications she was the right agent for me. She did not disappoint. I had some challenges in the sale of my home which made extra work for Janie, but she was pleased to do it. Together we overcame the challenges, and I was very pleased in the end. Janie provided wonderful support during a difficult time for me. Janie is the best. I highly recommend her!!!

You cannot go wrong with Woodleaf!

Can’t say enough about Janie and her team! The market was changing and tightening even as we offered up contracts. Janie coached us on how to best navigate the process to find the best home for our specific needs. Always staying positive and optimistic, we never felt anything other than absolute competence and complete control from the first viewing to our final home purchase. She even adjusted to my late night and early morning brainstorming. Communication is always key. You cannot go wrong with Woodleaf!

We are overjoyed!

Thrilled for Janie’s expertise and creative experience making it possible for us to secure a contract for our dream home BEFORE selling our 80910 home –unheard of in the crazy seller’s market we’re in. Janie also guided us on how to get top dollar on our Circle Drive home, much more than we ever expected resulting in multiple offers. The equity in our current home allows us to buy a home with tremendous potential atop peaceful Woodmoor Mountain with these incredible views. It all happened in one week and ended with just one easy move. We are overjoyed! Thank you Janie!

Janie has restored our faith in the process and the relationship a realtor and client can have!

Janie has been amazing. She was so patient with us and so helpful. Never once did she seem annoyed by our ignorance in buying from out of state. She understood our concerns and was very knowledgeable. For example, when the inspection resolution came through, she reached out to let us know what all of the confusing details meant.
Janie has held our hand through this process which has been a rare gift. We’ve had negative experiences with companies (and people) in the past and Janie has restored our faith in the process and relationship a realtor and client can have. Anybody lucky enough to work with Janie and Woodleaf Realty in general should take the chance – you will not be disappointed! I would be very happy to speak to people regarding our remarkable (and rare) experience. You cannot go wrong with this relationship.

Janie's team is personable, kind, and truly wish to help their clients!

My husband and I loved working with Janie and the Woodleaf team while searching for a home in Colorado Springs. Not only are they knowledgeable of the market and the area (most of the staff is local to the area), but they are personable, kind, and truly wish to help their clients find a wonderful home. I would highly recommend buying and/or selling with this team.

Janie and her team are sharp!

Janie and her team are sharp! They take good care of you, whether a buyer or a seller, from start to finish! My husband and I did both, sold and bought with the guidance and help from Janie. In fact, our house sold in 3 days at the top of the market due to Janie’s great marketing skills. Janie was on top of everything from beginning to end, made the negotiations on both ends, making the sale and purchase a piece of cake. Therefore, we did not need to worry about a thing. Also, Janie always kept us in the loop, communicating at every juncture. You can’t go wrong with anyone on this terrific team!

Great job, Janie!

My husband and I worked with Janie in the past in buying this home and things went really well. So we asked her again to be our realtor in selling our home. And as we expected, things went really well. The house was only on the market for 5 days with multiple offers. Great job, Janie! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family.

Chris really went over and above

Chris Potter just helped us sell our home and we couldn’t be more happy with that experience. She helped us price our home fairly and as a result, we went under contract within days of the listing going live, at very close to the asking price. She made herself available and provided excellent guidance when it came to negotiating with our buyers. Her unique background in construction was a real asset as well. Chris also helped us find our new home despite the fact that we had a pretty long list of criteria. Because the old house sold so quickly, Chris worked fast to make everything happen to fit our timeline. She really went over and above to make sure both transactions went as smoothly as possible. Overall, this was a really great experience and we would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy or sell.

, Colorado Springs, CO

The listing itself was beautiful, with professional drone photography

Chris and her team put together a great presentation to give us an idea of how they would market our property. The listing itself was beautiful, with professional drone photography capturing some fantastic views of the property. It didn’t take too much time and before we knew it, Chris presented us with an offer from a prospective buyer and we happily accepted it. From there, all the moves went quickly and smoothly, and we closed just last week. All and all, we were happy with the experience and the outcome, and we would gladly recommend Chris and her team to anyone buying and selling in Colorado.

Chris made our dreams come true!

We are so blessed to have worked with you in finding our mountain property & with our seamless closing. As a current resident of Woodmoor Mountain, you were instrumental in educating us on the mountain lifestyle, the to do’s & the must see’s of the surrounding areas. We loved your plethora of knowledge & your patience with our endless questions. You’re such a joy to work with & we look forward to our future adventures on Woodmoor Mountain & to being neighbors!

Moving made easy!

Julie was absolutely amazing. Once we decided to buy and contacted Julie for information she was so helpful. From day one she was helping us narrow our search. She did viewings for us since we were living in Germany. She would video the house and send it to us. We video chatted about every house and really supplied honest opinions. She helped us secure our amazing home!

, Colorado Springs

I'm so glad to have had Janie on my side!

Janie is a consummate real estate professional

I highly recommend using Janie Howard as your realtor. She is a consummate real estate professional, knowledgeable, personable and kind, easy to work with, and a good communicator. Her advice regarding how to update the house for sale was exactly on target, as was her pricing. Janie went above and beyond to prepare the house for sale and update the interior. She has a wonderful team of painters, handymen, flooring specialists,  and plumbers who work quickly, professionally, are reasonably priced, and communicate well. Janie’s help resolving house inspection issues was invaluable. Thank you, Janie, for your excellent work!

Janie is kind and knowledgeable

What a great person! Janie is kind and knowledgeable. She was quick to respond and helped me out in every aspect of selling my home. I’d highly recommend her!

Janie's professional photos, including drone shots, really sold the home

Janie Howard of Woodleaf Realty was wonderful to work with and I couldn’t be happier with her efforts. Janie assisted with the sale of my mother’s home. Even though I live in Denver and was traveling through much of the contract time period, Janie was proactive in making sure everything went smoothly, including repairs to the home. Her professional photos, including drone shots, really sold the home. I highly recommend Janie.

Janie listens, has infinite patience, and is well versed in building confidence in her clients

We used Janie to buy our house in Colorado Springs and then to sell it five years later. Jamie listens, has infinite patience, and is well versed in building confidence in her clients when those inevitable bumps come up in the road to buying or selling. We always found her to be knowledgeable, honest, personable and nurturing. We could not have asked for a better guide through either process and would not hesitate to recommend her.

, Stetson Hills, Colorado Springs

Janie was absolutely amazing and helped us every step of the way!

As first-time home buyers, we were clueless! Janie was absolutely amazing and helped us every step of the way! Since we were buying from out-of-state, we had only a few days to find a home. We gave her a list of what we were looking for and she put together a wonderful list of homes that met our needs. On the first day of shopping we found a beautiful home, made an offer and it was accepted! We could not have done it without her expertise and advise. Many other times she came to our rescue as we had questions before closing. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is professional and fun to work with!

Janie is fantastic!

Janie is fantastic! She did everything she could to make our sale successful and she delivered … over the top. Good advice, active engagement, wonderful photos. Sold in one day for more than asking price.

Julie has a keen eye when it comes to quality

Julie Wilson and I had been communicating for some time trying to find a property type that fit my needs as I had very specific requirements. During this time we visit a couple homes that had been renovated and I’ll tell anyone that Julie has the same keen eye as me when it comes to quality. This is something I really appreciated as there are a lot of people that wouldn’t notice sub-par craftsmanship. When we finally found the home to fit my needs it was a smooth process. Julie was great with communication and kept me informed of milestone items that needed to be completed. If you’re looking for a Realtor that listens to you and isn’t just trying to make a sale, Julie is exactly who you should be using.

, Peyton, Colorado

Julie was there every step of the way

My husband and I had the best home shopping experience with Julie Wilson. My husband being in the military and I being in school leaves us with very limited free time and Julie was wonderful at accommodating our busy schedule. This is our first home and we had a ton of questions and at times didn’t fully understand the process but Julie was there every step of the way to answer our questions with honesty and no judgement. I felt like all of my questions and concerns were taken seriously. She also never pressured us on houses out of price range and really helped to guide us to the perfect home. I have been living in my home now for almost a month and it really is a wonderful home.
My husband and I, initially, were very concerned and nervous about this process. She made it very simple and reassured us along the way. We also had a very short deadline for getting a new house and she was able to accommodate that as well.
While she is very efficient at her job and works very well with the military it is her kind disposition and friendly nature that were most enjoyable. I am thankful that we found such a wonderful realtor as Julie Wilson and I would recommend her to any family especially military.

Janie is simply the BEST!

This is our third wonderful opportunity using Janie as our real estate agent. Recently, we were so thankful that Janie had us put a back-up offer on a home that we never thought would fall into our hands. Thanks to her experience and expertise in the industry along with her optimism we are now content in our new home! We appreciate her hard work and her high caliber of honesty and integrity. Janie is simply the BEST!

Janie is an upbeat, positive person who works hard for her clients

From the moment we met to discuss selling the house to the moment I signed the final papers, Janie Howard was there to help me.  She explained my options to begin the selling process. She arranged the showing of the house which drew more people than I had hoped for, and secured the best possible offer.  She was with me at the final sale and shared in my bittersweet delight.

At every step of the process, Janie kept me informed of what was happening. Phone calls, emails, texts and personal visits to me are only part of her resources.  Janie is an upbeat, positive person who works hard for her client.  She was a cheerleader when I was down and shared in my joy in the good times.  Janie is not just my real estate agent, she is my friend.

Another five-star recommendation for Janie

I worked with Janie in the past in buying this home and things went really well and so I asked her again to be my realtor in selling my home. And as I expected things went really well, the house was only in the market for 5 days with multiple offers. Great job, Janie! I will definitely recommend you to all my friends and family.

Janie's proactive suggestions kept our interests first

When we decided to sell our house, we wanted to work with an agent who appreciated our (seller) perspective along with someone who possessed other expected attributes such as local market knowledge and experience. Janie’s proactive suggestions throughout the process proved that she kept our interests first and has experience in balancing various aspects to get the deal closed as quickly as possible. Janie kept us well informed throughout the process. We would highly recommend her.

We absolutely loved working with Janie Howard and Woodleaf Realty

She was very knowledgeable of the housing market in Colorado Springs and helped us get top dollar when selling our house. She made us feel at ease by talking us through all the questions and concerns we had. She also really helped us get our house ready to put on the market by addressing the issues that could be potential problems and how to fix them. I would absolutely recommend Janie Howard to anyone looking to buy or sell in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas.

Julie listened

Julie listened to my needs and wants.  Even with it being a seller’s market, she worked hard for me plus she found the right house with the view.  Thank you, Julie!

Julie was an unbelievable asset

Julie Wilson was an unbelievable asset and advisor during our home purchase. As out of state buyers, her role was crucial in helping us choose and close on our new home. She consistently displayed patience, knowledge and an endless willingness to help. She was always easily available. During every step of the process she went above and beyond. She even went out of her way on closing day to ensure that our new home was exactly as it should be. I cannot imagine how difficult it would have been without her help. It would have been much more stressful if it weren’t for Julie.

Very smooth

Janie’s an interesting alpha personality. But, the way she handles her personality is so mellow.  She processed this deal very smooth.

Janie is the best realtor to work with

Janie is a wonderful realtor! She is hard working, honest, caring, and very knowledgeable. She did her best to help my wife and I sell our house, and because of that we were able to sell our house within a short amount of time. We could always rely on her to give us solid, honest advice when making decisions on selling our home. She is the best realtor to work with. You won’t regret partnering with her!

Thank you just isn't enough!

We just sold our first home, and we could not have asked for a better experience! Stress-free thanks to Janie. And her hard work paid off for us!

, Colorado Springs

Janie was amazing.

When we started the process we were completely new to it and she took the time explain and answer every question we had. Once we began shopping she was really on the same page as us, as to what we were really looking for. It felt/feels like we really made a new friend who happens to be a GREAT realtor! We are thrilled with our new home.

, Colorado Springs

Janie was awesome!

She is very personable and knows her stuff when it comes to realty, locations and just the overall buying process. She answered every question I had almost immediately and helped me to understand the process as well. Because she is so good, she sometimes gets busy, but she made every attempt to get us in when she could, and even wrote our offer contract while in her car in between other appointments so we didn’t miss our opportunity to get our new home! And her follow-up after the sale has been just as great. Highly recommend.

Janie did an excellent job helping us find the right house.

She had to work with/around our odd work schedules and was great. We would use her again for any real estate needs again, and highly recommend her for anyone else for the same.

Janie was fantastic.

She did her homework very well, had great places lined up for us to see. When we walked into our home, we all instantly knew, including Janie that it was the right one! Yes, the perfect home, but her work continued as she put us in contact with Lisa Ramsey who found the perfect loan. All in all, I not only will highly recommend, I plan on having her find another property for us. Thank you so much Janie, you are great!

Janie is awesome!

She helped me sell two townhomes and purchase one. She generated so much interest we had a constant flow of showings and two offers with still more showings scheduled. Full asking price offer was accepted and the deal was completed from first listing to closing in one month. Exceptional professional that gets results. Highly recommend Janie.

Janie Howard started working for us over a year before we were ready and able to make a purchase.

We had a lot of fun looking at homes with Janie and she had good professional opinions that we could trust. We felt Janie truly had our best interests at heart.  Once we found the home we loved, she worked hard to get the best price possible and now we are proud owners of a beautiful Mountain Shadows custom home.  Could not be happier.

, Mountain Shadows

Whether you are a buyer or seller, Janie is an absolute delight to work with.

She completely understands the legal components of real estate contracts and she uses this knowledge wisely to protect her clients, which we experienced first hand. Janie displays professionalism, honesty, promptness and courtesy. Janie was patient and positive.  She was persistent and assertive and flexible.  Janie is a good person and thoughtful.  I would highly recommend Janie, I know I won’t hesitate to work with Janie again in the future.

Janie Howard has been an awesome Realtor to work with.

She was available to us, always answering questions in a timely and knowledgeable manner. With excellent communication, we never considered trying another Realtor. Janie’s knowledge of Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas, including the various school districts was invaluable. She was resolved to find the right home for us. She is so friendly and fun and she truly has the best interest of her clients at heart.

I appreciate Janie Howard's assistance in helping me find and buy my home.

The references she provided (lender and inspector) all worked out very well, too. I am very pleased with the home and how the whole process went.

, Indigo Ranch

Janie demonstrated tremendous patience as we sought to sell our older house in an extremely difficult market.

Throughout the experience, Janie provided us with an outstanding level of service, professionalism and follow-through.  Janie is a hardworking, top-performing real estate professional.  She has our highest recommendation.

, Peyton

I hired Janie Howard to sell my townhome - she is a wonderful person!

I would recommend her many times over. She is very professional and really knows the market in the area very well. She is easy to talk to and listens to what you want, makes the process fun and easy.  She always answered my questions and explained every step of the way so I felt comfortable. She is very fun, too.

The inspection process on our 1899 Victorian was full of challenges.

We were concerned with all there was to do if we’d get the house or not.  My mom, Janie Howard, was our Realtor and without being biased, she really is so good at what she does.  You know when you see people just alive in their passion and calling?  Yes, that’s my mama.  SHE MADE IT HAPPEN.

, Old Colorado City

Janie's cheerful professionalism and steadfast hard work on my behalf was most appreciated.

Janie’s pleasant personality and dogged determination have been a real blessing. Janie has my vote for “realtor of the decade” and look forward to working with her again in the future. I do not hesitate to recommend Janie to anyone in need of a top-notch realtor.

, Palmer Lake

Organized and diligent, Janie quickly acquainted herself with the unique style of property we desired

She kept us constantly informed and made sure we were comfortable with each step of the buying and selling process.

Janie Howard was able to guide us with great wisdom through the short sale process with the myriad details to get approval.

She helped keep us stay out of foreclosure.  Janie reassured me that things like this happen to good people and that we would get through it together. If you or anyone you know are in need for an ‘above reproach’ Realtor, please contact Janie Howard.

My husband and I sold our home in a short sale and were fortunate to have Janie Howard as our realtor.

Janie walked us through every step.  She didn’t just explain everything to us and help us, but she went above and beyond and sincerely cared about our circumstances and us. Janie was patient and encouraging through all of it.  She prayed for us, supported us, and loved us.  We are beyond grateful for Janie’s expertise on short sales and also her personal and genuine care.

Fast and at a great price, and with all the details handled for us

Janie Howard sold our home in only 53 days in a down market! We couldn’t have picked a better real estate professional than Janie to get the task done. Her excellent marketing brought many showings and quickly a solid buyer. Janie was an excellent advocate and she always looked out for our best interest.  Janie is knowledgeable and understands the market and the business well so we’ve never had to worry.  Janie had all the aspects of the transaction under her control. We cannot express how much we appreciate everything she has done.

Janie will be the first person I call when I’m ready to purchase my next home.

I appreciated all Janie’s help and patience – she is the best!

Janie Howard is a sincere realtor with limitless patience and optimism.

Finding a home that suited my parent’s special needs was extremely challenging. Janie wasn’t about to give up and she indeed found the perfect one. In finding my home, Janie listened to my needs. She educated me on the home-buying process since it was my first home purchase. I am so fortunate I had such a wonderful realtor to help me…Janie is a realtor you can really trust!

We feel very lucky to have received a call from Janie Howard

When my husband and I began the process of looking for a new home.  We had a unique situation that required a lot of Janie’s time and effort, and we were never disappointed.  I loved that she responded quickly to all of our questions and needs.  We followed Janie’s instructions exactly on how to quickly get our home in show condition for a fast sale.  This allowed us to make the purchase of a beautiful bank-owned home of our dreams in Cedar Heights.  We could not have pulled off this amazing feat without Janie’s hard work and attentiveness.

, Cedar Heights

Janie Howard is very trustworthy and extremely devoted to her clients.

It was for those reasons that when we decided to sell our $850,000 home with Janie.  Janie presented us with marketing research of what we could expect. If we had taken her advice early on, we could have saved at a lot of money. We eventually accepted a contract for about 99.5% of the original price Janie advised us to list our property.

, Kings Deer

Janie provided an awesome home-buying experience.

Janie kept us informed and passed important information along to us. We always knew we had someone in our corner with our best interest at heart. I will gladly recommend Janie to my friends and family whenever they get ready to buy or sell.  Janie, you’re simply the best!

Janie has an amazing team that work with her homebuyers.

Julie Wilson was always available to answer my questions and set-up my specific search needs.  Lisa Ramsey, the mortgage broker, found the perfect loan.  Lisa was also very professional, knowledgeable and like Janie, made me feel like I was her only client.  Janie is a woman of integrity and is, hands down, the best in the business and if I ever need to move again she will be my first choice in real estate agents.

, Powers

Thank you so much Lisa, Irma and Janie!

I cannot tell you how grateful all three of us are for your work and dedication (especially with all the loan craziness!). I am so excited for Monday and just can’t thank you enough.
