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 a single family home in 2022 in Fairhope, AL 36532.
    Having only seen this area online, we decided to sell our home in SW Florida and relocate to Alabama's Eastern Shore. We had seen a house on line Janet had listed and called her about it. Unfortunately the home was already sold. That contact turned out to be a blessing. When we arrived in the area, she helped us secure a short time rental and went to work familiarizing us with the area, and after looking all over Baldwin Co. helped us narrow down just where we wanted to be, which was Fairhope. Inventory was very low with a very competitive sellers market, and homes going for well over asking price. After losing 2 homes to higher bids, we took her advice exactly, and after making it through some crazy negotiations, we got our home. We moved into our new home this week and we couldn't be happier. She has been invaluable in helping us find resources and services and explaining things like termite contracts which we knew nothing about. I would definitely use her again if the occasion rises.

    Sold a single family home in 2022 for approximately $475K in Spanish Fort, AL 36527.
    Very good with difficult and unusual situations. For example if the house has an issue or special circumstances, Janet digs in to do the research or help get past the problem. Good communication and negotiation skills.

    Sold a single family home in 2021 for approximately $275K in Daphne, AL 36526.
    Janet came highly recommended from a neighbor and lived up to her rep. After one in-person meeting, we returned to Texas and Janet coordinated with contractors to make my late sister's house shine. It sold within a week at the price she predicted. Yippee!

    We could not have been more pleased to have Janet English as our Realtor. She was highly professional and experienced in every aspect while pleasant and easy to work with. Highly knowledgeable about the local housing market, Janet expertly guided us through the sales process, procuring an offer in under a week and for more than the asking price. She kept us informed at every step and always answered texts and calls very promptly. She came highly recommended to us and did not disappoint! Thanks again, Janet!!!

    Sold a single family home in 2020 for approximately $375K in Spanish Fort, AL 36527.
    Very helpful.
    A pleasure to work with Janet.
    She understands the market, the area and the specifics of our situation.
    Always there to assist, answer many questions, suggest how to proceed. And most all of this was done remotely as this was a second home.

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2020 for approximately $425K in Spanish Fort, AL 36527.
    We have used Janet English as both a listing agent and a buyer’s agent. She is very knowledgeable about this market area and a real professional. As your buyer’s agent she will point out problems with a home that an amateur will not notice. Then she keeps working until she finds the appropriate home that suits you.

    Bought and sold a single family home in 2019 for approximately $375K in Spanish Fort, AL 36527.
    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 single family home in 2019 for approximately $225K in Daphne, AL 36526.
    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...
