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 2018 for approximately $425K in Daphne, AL.
    Janet provided us with outstanding service in our new home search. She was extremely professional and very knowledgeable in providing 'individual' home information and information regarding the 'overall Eastern Shore area'. She constantly kept us up to date on new homes appearing on the market in the areas where we were interested. I would highly recommend her as a realtor for anyone buying or selling a home.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Daphne, AL.
    Janet is the best real estate agent in Baldwin county. She goes above and beyond to get her work done and get the ball rolling. We have used Janet in purchasing a house and selling one. She is on top of her game and made buying and selling very easy and stress free for my family. I am very pleased that she had us 2 full price offers in less than a week on the house we were selling. I recommend her to anyone!

    Janet is wonderful! She has an extraordinary depth of knowledge about the real estate market in the Mobile/Baldwin County area and added to that a clear-eyed, common-sense approach to the sale of our home. We were delighted by her services and would happily use her again if ever the occasion were to arise.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $275K in Fairhope, AL.
    Janet was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the entire home shopping process. She provided detailed incite on her own experiences in addition to being completely supportive of my wants in a home. At no time did I feel at a loss for what I needed to do due to her patiently walking me through every step of the shopping, contracting, and purchasing process. Moreover, closing on the house was a breeze due to her being so prepared and having me prepared for all that it entailed.

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $150K in Daphne, AL.
    Janet made our experience with purchase and selling our house a great experience. Her knowledge of the Eastern Shore is very impressive, especially the comps regarding listing for selling and offering amount for purchasing. Janet's recommendation on listing price secured an offering in a very quick time and exceeded our expectations. On the house we purchased, her recommendations on current market value allowed us to reduce the asking price and secure the home at a very attractive selling price.
