Janet EnglishREALTOR®

I've lived a lot of places -- California, Canada, Kentucky, Texas, Mississippi -- but my home is the Gulf Coast. Specifically, the Eastern Shore of the Mobile Alabama metro area. While it's not quite like my hometown of New Orleans -- then again, what is? -- it offers much of the same Coastal lifestyle.
Newspaper journalism brought me and my husband here in 1994. In fact, that move was my second experience in real estate, as I sold a home in Mississippi and bought one here, finding the latter in a weekend. Those corporate moves shaped how I practice real estate.
As a lifelong news junkie, I make it my business to know what's going on in Spanish Fort, Daphne, Fairhope and beyond as I help folks make those all important decisions when moving to what we call the Eastern Shore.
I specialize in Plain English about the housing market, price trends, new construction, homeowner's insurance and everything else that encompasses the decisions folks face when choosing that next home. And I've been doing that since I became a Realtor in 1998.
As a parent, I've been involved in both Daphne and Spanish Fort schools, bands, football and soccer. As a member of the community I helped build the Spanish Fort Kid's park and served on various committees at my church.
So what else?
-- I'm a so-so tennis player
-- I'm a better cook
-- I'm in the RE/MAX Hall of Fame (yep, there's the commercial)
-- My favorite nearby travel spots are New Orleans and Key West.
-- I've interviewed lots of people from Julia Child to U.S. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus.
-- I love the New Orleans Saints, Drew Brees and the Bless You Boys, but I will secondarily root for any Manning, as they went to my church in New Orleans.
So if I can help you find your next home -- or if you just want to discuss where Drew, Peyton and Eli rank in terms of quarterbacks -- just give me a shout.

    Bought and sold a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $375K.
    Janet is a very helpful and knowledgeable agent. We used her services in the purchase of our first home in Spanish Fort 6 1/2 years ago and again in the recent sale of our existing home and purchase of a new home. She was thorough and responded very quickly to any questions we had about both the sale and purchase. If she didn’t know the answer - she found it! We hope to not move again, but if we do we will for sure utilize Janet again! We would recommend her to anyone on the Eastern Shore looking to buy or sell.

    Bought and sold a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $225K.
    We sold our house with Janet back in 2012.. We returned to Baldwin County and immediately knew who we would use to buy a house! Janet! No question her experience and knowledge about real estate and the area are top notch! I would recommend her to anyone seeking to buy in the area. An added bonus is she has recommendations for people who can help with all facets of the house buying process...

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $200K.
    Janet helped my husband over 10 years ago find his first home to purchase in Daphne, Al. She recently just assisted us in purchasing another home in Daphne. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and up to date with all the ins and outs of real estate. We trust Janet and look forward to her assisting us with listing and selling our house as well as my father's house.

    Bought a home in 2019 in Branch Dale, PA.
    Janet went beyond any of our expectations and delivered perfectly. She was knowledgeable about the housing market and all the locations that were of an interest to us. She was always available and on-time for each one of our appointments. We greatly appreciated how she listened to our needs and concerns without ever once being 'pushy' in anyway. She was always professional, personable and pleasant...always honest, reliable and extremely helpful. Our situation was much of our 'house-hunting' and eventual closing process had to be done 'long-distance'...from many states away. Even so, she kept us totally informed and always guided us well through each part of the process. Thus, we enjoyed a great deal of peace, knowing we were not only well-cared for...but on top of every detail."

    Bought and sold a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $275K.
    Janet has worked with us over the years to buy two houses and sell one. She keeps in contact throughout the buying/selling process and does what she says she is going to do. She did a great job and I would recommend her to anyone!

    Sold a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $175K.
    Janet is an exceptional realtor!

    She is extremely knowledgeable and was always on top of getting everything taken care of for us. She gave my wife and I the time and attention that you would want from an agent. Very easy to talk to and regularly gave detailed updates on where we stood in the home selling process and what to expect next.

    As a former agent, I never once worried about or regretted putting our trust and home in the hands of Janet. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $25K.
    We are new to the Eastern Shore, so we needed A LOT of guidance when buying a home. Janet was the perfect realtor for us. I sent her a bullet-point list of the things that I wanted in a home, and she got to work. In our first day of showings, she listened intently to all of our input on each property. While we didn't find our perfect home that day, she gathered enough information about us and our needs that she found the PERFECT home for our family on the second day of showings. We honestly hadn't even considered looking at this particular property when we were searching on our own online. We only looked at this house because she suggested it. And, we were so glad that we listened to her.

    Once we had the home, everything else was smooth sailing. She successfully navigated us through competing offers. We used her recommendations for home inspectors and insurance agents, and had superior experiences with both. She negotiated all of our requested repairs with the sellers, and then we just had to sit back and wait for closing.

    She always responded to us quickly, whether by phone, text, or email. She maintained an easy to follow online workflow manager that I could check regularly to make sure that I was completing all of my necessary tasks. She also seemed to have really good relationships with many other agents (calling listing agents immediately if we noticed something was wrong with a property or to ask minor questions). That really made me feel like she was an ethical professional, and I am always relieved to know that I am supporting someone who is a positive presence in the community.

    This was our third time buying a home, and Janet made this far and away the easiest experience that we have had. We really hope to stay in our new home for many years (she really did find us the perfect home), but if for some reason we can't, we fully intend to work with Janet again.

    We couldn't recommend her services any more highly.
