“Janie is a true professional. Over the years she has found us two great homes, and also sold one for us. From start to finish Janie was with us step by step.”

-Maurice K.

“Janie did a great job handling my Mother’s sale. From her knowledgeable approach in helping set a price to her insistence that she be there anytime a prospective buyer viewed the property, Janie was pleasant and on top of it all. Every little detail that arose, Janie was there to help resolve the problem. She was wonderful to work with and as competent as they come. Thanks Janie!!”

-Howard P Rosenberg

“Janie recently helped us sell our home of some 40 years and helped us find and buy our “right sized” new home. She is professional, hard working and has a winning personality. We so appreciate her long hours on our behalf and her helpful advice. We are delighted to recommend Janie- She is an excellent Realtor.

Terri and Barry

“Janie Bress goes above her responsibilities as an agent. She is a caring and thoughtful person. I highly recommend her!”

Sharon S

“We have used Janie as both a selling agent and helping us find a property to purchase. In both cases, she provided outstanding service and the processes went extraordinarily well. She is very knowledgeable and easy to deal with, providing wonderful customer service. We highly recommend her.”

Don & Amy Hammond

“Janie was amazing. She helped me every step of the way with buying new construction. It was my first time buying a house and she made the process so seamless. I am very grateful for Janie and so happy in my new home.


“Janie was an absolute pleasure to work with when buying our home in Spring 2021. My fiance had worked with her previously when he bought his condo but it was my first time as a buyer… Janie walked us through every step and was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking in the (North suburbs). We had seen our home in an open house before we even contacted Janie and knew we loved it- she was wonderful and jumped right in, contacting the seller’s agent and finding us some comps in the area so we knew the house was the right one for us. After we bought our home, she then went to work selling the condo and got us a great price! I would 10 out of 10 recommend Janie if you need a realtor!”

“It was a difficult time finding our home during covid with limited inventory and all of the new rules and regulations made it tricky. Janie’s “CAN DO” attitude and always being available at a moment’s notice made it possible. Janie’s professionalism and ability to understand the needs of our requirements in our search made all the difference. I highly recommend Janie in your next buying/selling transaction if you’re looking for an excellent customer experience.”


“Janie was amazing. She helped me every step of the way with buying new construction. It was my first time buying a house and she made the process so seamless. I am very grateful for Janie and so happy in my new home.”

“It was truly a pleasure to work with Janie. She really knows the market, is tireless in her work, provides outstanding advice, has keen business sense and has all the patience you could ever want. She worked with us for about a year as we worked through an estate and all the issues that accompany it. Throughout the process she maintained the same exceptional enthusiasm that she showed the day we first met her. We truly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her highly.”

“Janie was a great broker! I moved out of town and she took such great care of my condo even though she was selling houses that were likely going to make her more commissions. She went to virtually every showing, which does not seem common, and followed up well. I could not have sold my condo with anyone else! I hope that I have a chance to refer her to someone else.”
-Karen Kline

“We first met Janie at an open house when we were moving to the area. She understood what we were looking for in a house, had a deep understanding of the area, and was willing to show us many homes. After buying our house, three years later we needed to relocate to another state and we didn’t hesitate contacting Janie. We closed on our house in 90 days and in the middle of a pandemic – do we need to say anything else!! Janie is very caring and easy to work with and we recommend her without any reservations.”
-Jerry and Becky

Janie has been our “family broker” for over 15 years for multiple listings for sales and purchases of homes and condos. She is the ultimate professional – friendly, well prepared, diplomatic, a persuasive negotiator, knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the market, and a trusted recommender for lawyers, appraisers and mortgage brokers. She is a pleasure to work with and cares about us not just as clients but as a member of her wide and diverse circle. We highly recommend Janie to anyone who wants to sell their beloved home or find that new residence of their dreams. She will get the deal done and leave all parties more than satisfied.”
-Pam and Chuck Ex

“Janie came recommended to us by a close friend. Even though she doesn’t regularly work in our area, she took our listing and did an amazing job. She traveled to our home regularly to support the selling process and to hold open houses. Janie communicated her schedule and offered to do the open houses several times. I think this really helped to get the right traffic through our home and to get it sold quickly. We got a strong offer and Janie supported us all the way through closing! Janie also guided us through the home buying process. We were moving to her area and she was extremely knowledgeable and patient. She was with us every weekend to go around to houses and met us after work when needed. When we made our offer, she gave us the comps and research for the neighborhood to be able to make a decent offer. We had some back-and-forth with the sellers and Janie helped us to develop the best strategy we could. We ultimately secured the offer that we were pleased with. We would highly recommend Janie for any needs you have in the North Shore!”
-Holly & Dan Kleinschrodt

“Our experience with Janie Bress, both as a seller’s and buyer’s agent, over 18 years has always been a pleasure. Selling our present home in a market that is soft, takes experience and good instincts as to how the market is doing. Janie was able to navigate for us through all the obstacles by providing updates on every outside agents’ access to our property and their comments related to each visit. Also, any details associated to the home’s presentation, paperwork, timelines, and any other concerns were dealt with in a timely and professional manner. All in all, our association with Janie over the years has been both a personal and professional journey. Thank you, Janie!”
-Carole and Larry White

“Now that I have become somewhat settled in my new apartment, I am taking a few moments to thank you for your terrific performance in getting my home sold.  Your directions for the staging of my home were excellent. You made suggestions that increased the attractiveness to potential purchasers and avoided unproductive expenditures. The procedure you and the associates in your office used to help me determine the price I should ask was outstanding. You did not urge me to set a price that was too low in order to make a quick sale. We arrived at what I believe was the correct listing price. Despite having a large number of competing homes on the market, you secured a purchaser at the best price that I could expect in the market that existed. Finally, when we had a contract, your follow-through and attention to detail was intelligent and diligent. Without that assistance, the sale would have not closed.”
-Ronald Boorstein

“I have known JANIE for many years now. When I first moved back to Chicago, she helped me find the perfect home. I recently just sold that home and JANIE came through again and helped me to sell and get exactly what I was asking for. She then found another place for me to call home. She is very good at what she does. She knows the business and the north shore areas very well. She is very easy to work with and very personable. I would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a real estate professional to contact JANIE.”
-Bobbe Levy

“Janie worked with me for over a year on my move from NJ to the Chicago area. She found an ideal place for me and then actually convinced me that the offer I intended to make could be lower! She was right and it saved me money. She was with me every step of the way through the process. I would recommend her without reservation! She did a terrific job for me!”
-Jeff Landsman

“Janie did a great job helping me find a condo that would meet my requirements as I down size my life. Every time I’d start questioning what I was thinking of, she put me back on track to find the right condo for me. I appreciated the knowledge and expertise she brought to this search. She was always available to answer any questions that I had throughout the buying process. Janie is the realtor you’d want to use during what could be a difficult process. She works for you 100%.”
-Debbie List in Northbrook

“We have worked with Janie over the past 15 years for all of our real estate needs, and she has always been no less than extraordinary.  We recently purchased a home with Janie and she was truly amazing through the entire process. She was very knowledgeable about the North Shore market, patient with our unique needs during our search, and always very responsive and professional.  She has been an absolute pleasure to work with and we would not think of working with anyone else!”
-Taj & Adriana Reneau in Lake Forest

“Janie, you’re our go-to agent. You’ve helped my wife and I buy and sell 2 homes, and (now) rent in the city. You’re tenacious, patient and realistic. Your clients are the lucky ones!”
-Larry & Susan Organ in Winnetka

“We loved working with Janie-she was always very responsive and she has a tremendous knowledge of the north shore real estate market. She followed through and followed up on every question/concern we had. Would not hesitate to recommend her or to use her again!!”
-Amy & Matt Cohen in Deerfield

“We wish there were more stars were available for rating Janie because she absolutely 100% deserves more than 5 stars. As everyone knows selling and buying a home at the same time can be such a stressful feat. Having Janie as our Realtor took all of that stress away through her personal and professional quality. Besides being your realtor, Janie also becomes your friend and pretty much a family member during the process. When you have Janie as your Broker, she is there with you throughout the entire process and is available 110% of the time. Even after our closing and we’ve moved into our new home, Janie still took the time to reach out to us to make sure everything was fine and that our 16 month daughter adjusted well with her new room. Janie is very knowledgeable and has many resources that helped ease us with the process of buying and selling a home. We highly recommend Janie Bress to anyone either in search of new home and/or buying a home. If anyone is in search of a Realtor, stop now and contact Janie. She will get the job done and at the same time make the entire experience pleasurable.”
-Maria and Saul Datwyler

Janie was outstanding. She was knowledgeable, personable, and very organized. It was a pleasure working with her, and we enthusiastically and with pleasure recommend her to anyone looking for the services of a Real Estate Broker.”
– Ira and Robbe

“I cannot recommend Janie highly enough. We found Janie a pleasure to work with and her knowledge of the real estate market was outstanding. She was incredibly patient as a home that matched our needs (and desires) and price range was not easy to find. She continued to search, and even though it took a very long time and the viewing of many houses she never made us feel that we should compromise even a little bit. She is exceptionally thorough, attentive to detail, and helpful with the myriad of details that must be taken care of. Even after she had showed us houses for months, she helped us to see the negatives in houses we looked at. We are about to move into the perfect house for us, and we are so grateful to Janie for her help and her wise counsel. “
-Paula & Carl Resnick – Highland Park

“I have known and done business with Janie for over 20 years…I highly recommend her! She has always been so kind and helpful. She goes out of her way to help her clients meet their goals. She presents herself as very professional, forward thinking and highly motivated to help her clients sell their particular property or find their dream home…. What sets Janie apart from most Brokers is her keen sense of knowing how to listen to her client’s needs, concerns, worries and financial limitations, understand what is important to them and then find a solution and a pathway that will work for them. You feel like her only client and a good friend when you’re with her.”
– Barb Teeple – Glenview

“Too often people complain about someone or something. This letter, however, portrays the merits of my real estate broker, Janie Bress. Janie has been my agent for over 25 years and has always made me feel confident and stress free. As a professional she gives more than 100%. Recently, she gave above and beyond the duties of a real estate agent. A few weeks ago, I needed emergency eye surgery. Janie volunteered to drive me to the doctor’s office and then to the hospital. She later picked up my medicine and called daily to see how I was doing. This shows the compassion Janie has for others. She is an outstanding human being as well as a professional.”
– Lana Pol

– Alison Weiman

“Janie is, by far, the best realtor I have worked with. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and how to set up a home to sell. She is also very honest and willing to tell you the good and the bad too. This is important! Our house sold in one day at full asking price. I believe Janie’s expertise helped make that happen! Also, Janie helped me buy this house 11 years ago. She was great then and she continues to be excellent as a real estate professional.
– Peter Anderson

“Janie is a joy to work with. She focuses in on your requirements and finds homes that fill them. Her patience is unending. We looked forever and even changed our mind about some things but she was with us every step of the way. And now we are in the new home we always wanted.
– Elayne and Bob Schempp

“We have worked with Janie Bress on two home sales and two home purchases and each time we could not have been more thrilled with her expertise, responsiveness, professionalism, and attention to detail. Janie works tirelessly on behalf of her clients and consistently goes above and beyond to ensure the highest level of service. In addition, Janie really cares. She gets to knows her clients, their children, even their extended families, and takes a genuine interest in their lives. Janie is a class act, we would never want to go through the complex home sale and purchase process without Janie by our side!
– Amy and Glenn Simon

“Janie not only meets but exceeds the highest standards one could hope for in a realtor. We feel so fortunate to have had Janie’s tremendous expertise and ever helpful advise throughout the process of searching for and buying our first home. She answered all of our many questions, often before we could even ask them, and made a process which could easily be complicated and confusing enjoyable instead. Janie consistently made us feel like her only clients; she always made herself available when we needed her and returned phone calls promptly even during late evening hours and weekends. Moreover Janie was crucial in helping us to find and purchase our dream house; she made sure we were among the first to see a house she knew we would love and, despite multiple offers, her expertise and negotiation skills allowed us to purchase this amazing home. We couldn’t thank her enough for everything she has done for our family. As an added bonus, Janie is fantastic with kids; our two year old still asks for her! We very highly recommend Janie to anyone looking to buy a home. She is absolutely amazing!”
– Aaron and Kristen Naber

“I simply can’t recommend Janie Bress highly enough! I recently inherited a townhome in Highland Park that I needed to rent. I thought it was going to be a challenge for me as I live in California. But Janie was an extraordinary resource, hooking me up with various skilled trades people who assisted in making needed improvements, and even meeting them on-site to provide access. She really went the extra mile! Of course, she actively promoted and showed the unit and generated terrific tenants. Janie was extremely professional throughout and helped us through a challenging time. She is just the best of the best.”
– Michael Caplan

“Janie was a pleasure to work with! She made our first home buying experience a great one. She made sure we were aware of everything we may not have thought of when buying our first home, and was patient in answering all of our questions. She really understood what we were looking for and was very knowledgeable throughout the whole process. We would definitely recommend Janie!”
– Sara and Andrew Rolsma

“Janie listened intently to our needs, which were varied and difficult to meet. She was always very responsive in arranging showings, remaining patient and professional throughout the process. She accommodated our schedule consistently. When we moved to make an offer on one property, then a second, Janie drew on her expertise to formulate competitive but distinctly different offers for the two different properties we bid on. She ensured we got the property we wanted and guided us every step of the way, even down to giving us all the info needed to set up utilities in our new home. We are extremely happy in our new home.”
– Amy Cathlina

“Janie was terrific from the start of our search through the closing, and even beyond. She helped us define the type of property we were looking for and then helped us refine that definition as we proceeded through our search. She was familiar with all the communities we had targeted and knowledgable of others that she thought would meet our requirements. She was aware of properties that met our requirements as soon as they came on the market and arranged to get that information to us immediately. She made her schedule fit ours so it was always convenient for us to see properties, even when we wanted to visit them multiple times, and we visited a lot of properties. She counseled us on local property values, provided comps to substantiate the values and provided moral support during the negotiation process. I can’t imagine how any real estate professional could have been more helpful and accommodating.”
– Bob Landsman

“Janie Bress is a sheer pleasure to work with from a buyer standpoint. She came recommended by my friends and how right they were. I have bought homes in multiple states and the UK and she outshines everyone I have worked with hands down. Janie took the time to understand my needs, educate me on the area and likely matches – never pushed, was always supportive. She helped place me in an apartment that was like a resort while we waited (10 months) for the right home to come to market. The result: I am living in my dream home! Thanks Janie – and to anyone thinking about working with a realtor you can’t go wrong with Janie Bress.”
– Paul Cox, Highland Park

“Janie is a home buyer’s dream come true. She worked tirelessly for us in our home search, providing her truly endless knowledge, expertise and honesty every step of the way. She is the pinnacle of a professional. Janie was always a step ahead of things and made every phase of our home search go smoothly and pleasantly. She went above and beyond for us, not only getting to know us and our preferences very well, but showing that she cared personally about us. Because of Janie’s hard work and personal dedication we not only have our dream house, but we feel fortunate to have gotten to know her. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!”
– Carrie Chaikin & Patrick Kang, Buffalo Grove

“Janie was referred to us by friends who assured us that she was the best. We had no idea how right they would be! We both work over 60 hours a week and have a 1 year old which made our time very limited. Janie was always available with short notice and she responded to our many emails very quickly. When we viewed homes, she pointed out all things, both good and bad, and she even kept an eye on our curious son who enjoyed showing her that he could climb up and down all of the stairs. Janie was not only our broker, but she also became our friend and our teacher. She took the time to teach us all the little things we didn’t know about owning a home. She genuinely cared about us. Janie really knows what she’s doing and we never second guessed her. She helped us find the perfect home for our expanding family. Thank you, Janie!”
– Megan and David Soth, Deerfield

“Janie is one of the most knowledgeable, efficient and effective realtors that I have ever dealt with. Janie is the “perfect” selection for your realtor.

She has exceptional knowledge of the market place and provides excellent professional advice. Janie was extraordinarily helpful throughout the entire process, from making the house market-ready, placing the house on the market and handling all the intermediary steps through closing. I would recommend Janie to anyone who needs a really great realtor and she is a pleasure to work with.”
– Dick Weiss – Skokie

Throughout the process she maintained the same exceptional enthusiasm that she showed the day we first met her. We truly enjoyed working with her and would recommend her highly.”
– The Hammonds – Northfield

“Janie is our “family realtor.” Over the past seven years she has sold a combination of three houses and two condos and purchased one condo for our four families.

– Charles Ex and Pamela Berland Ex – Highland Park

– Louise & Pat Casey – Deerfield

“Janie is amazing! Not only does she understand the business, is efficient and has ethics beyond reproach, Janie goes an extra 10 miles. My two sisters and I engaged Janie to sell our mom’s condo. The process was as easy, stress-free and productive as any real estate transaction can be. Thanks to Janie’s advice, the condo sold within a few months at a reasonable price — in an extremely tough market. Six thumbs up! Janie is highly and enthusiastically recommended.
– Sandy Schneider – Northbrook

“Janie helped us find our first home in the suburbs. She is an excellent real estate agent. She is very responsive, always able to answer questions, patient and was excellent at negotiating the purchase of our new home. She has many years of experience in the business and is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market on the North Shore. We continue to be very impressed with her, and we would not have wanted to work with anyone else. Thank you, Janie, for all of your hard work and dedication to your clients.
– Nicole and Bill Sugarman – Glencoe

“Janie was a real pleasure to work with. She was very professional in all of our meetings, only wanted to be sure that I found exactly what I was looking for, It took longer than we would of liked to close on my house, but even then Janie was right by my side making sure that everything was being done correctly. I would highly recommend her to any one.”

“Janie’s talent and expertise was such a huge help to us when we were moving from the city. Throughout the process Janie was so unbelievably understanding, patient, and caring.

Janie was also extremely resourceful and reliable and thanks to her vast knowledge of the North Shore we were able to find the perfect home for our family within our price range. With all of the personal attention and guidance we received from beginning to end we felt like we were her only clients or as if Janie was part of our family. Even today 7 years after our closing Janie continues to provide support to us. We have recommended Janie to all of our friends and family and she is the only realtor we would ever use!
– Amy & Jonathan Cohen -Deerfield

“Janie, you are the best. Your knowledge of the market place and your hard work on behalf of your clients was always quite evident in every phase of the buy or sell of real estate, which we did both. You are a true professional!”
– Judy & Ed Ex – Sold in Glencoe, Purchased in Highland Park

“Janie is terrific to work with. She’s incredibly thorough and responsive, and her knowledge of the North Shore is near encyclopedic — she can provide the buying/selling history of almost every house we looked at. We’ve worked with her for more than 10 years, and she’s supported us through the offer and negotiation process. Once when we submitted a contract to buy a house and then changed our mind, Janie remained patient and supportive, and immediately came back with more houses to look at. We think she’s the best, and would recommend her to anyone.”
– Jon & Diane Powell – Wilmette

“Janie was extremely helpful in finding us a beautiful home with what we needed and in our budget. Although the neighborhood she was helping us look in was not an area she was accustomed to; her professionalism and efficiency made her a breeze to work with. She helped us find a beautiful home and was always available and flexible to our needs. Thank you and we will always refer people to Janie when people are in need of a new home.”
– Michael & Yocheved Boyer – Chicago

“Janie Bress was introduced to us by our son and daughter-in-law when they were purchasing their first home. She was so in sync with our children and their needs, that when we sold our home, she was the first one we thought of to call. We were never sorry. Finding our condo was a laborious feat, since we had a frustrating 1½ years of waiting to sell our home. Janie honed in on exactly what we were looking for and patiently showed us just about every property available as they came up within that time frame. She was knowledgeable, honest in her opinions, stayed within our price range, organized, and responsive. We were always made to feel like we were her only clients. I hope we never have to move again, but if we do, she will, once more, be our first call.”
– Norma & Eddie Cohen – Northbrook

“Janie is a dedicated and knowledgeable professional. She has an in-depth understanding of all of the neighborhoods on the North Shore, which helped us in our decision making process. She was a strong advocate for us as we searched for a new home. She was always prompt in returning our calls and did a great job showing us homes that truly matched our priorities and desires and never pushed us to look outside of our means. We would definitely refer any of our friends to her when they are looking to buy or sell.”
– Dara & Rick Weil – Highland Park

“Janie is a great agent. She listened to our needs, provided realistic feedback which managed our expectations and led us through the sale of our home in a difficult market. Her commitment to us and understanding of our needs was critical when we were buying our house. She was always available as we looked at a number of listings and would point out things for us to consider for our family. Janie’s biggest asset to us was her professionalism and experience. She made both the process of selling and buying property transparent, and the partnership she built with us made us feel engaged but not immersed in details.”
– Stephanie & Mike Stormoen – Deerfield

“We loved working with you, Janie. We felt you were always focused on finding the right home for us. When we had questions, you were always attentive and responsive, when we had doubts, you were never pushy, and when we were ready to make an offer, you knew exactly what to do. We were very fortunate to work with someone so knowledgeable about the business and the North Shore area which helped in this very complicated market. We love our new home!”
– Bobbi Xayarath & Nathan Styles – Deerfield

“Janie knew exactly what we were looking for and was patient with us for over a year of house hunting.

– Rachel & Sol Garber – Highland Park

– David & Nicole Glenn – Highland Park

“Janie Bress is a consummate professional. Janie was always there, advocating for us and representing our interests. Her advice to us was positively bulletproof, and her guidance helped us sell our house in only a week (in a terrible market!). She also helped us figure out what we were really looking for in a new home, and we couldn’t be happier.”
– Perrin & Jake Davis – Deerfield

“Janie was truly a delight to work with. She was very professional and hard working with excellent follow through skills. She was easy to communicate with. She responded very quickly and was always available for concerns and questions. She also helped us relocate to a temporary residence on the North Shore. Janie has become a good friend and I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home on the North Shore. Thanks again, Janie, for your patience and help”
– Bill Chunowitz – Highland Park

“We have worked with Janie over the past 10 years and have sold two homes and purchased two homes with her. Janie is extremely professional and knowledgeable about the market. She is hardworking and willing to drop everything to show a house that “might be the one” and provides sound advice in negotiating real estate contracts whether from a buyer or seller perspective. Over the years Janie became a trusted advisor and friend and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

“Janie was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is the epitome of professionalism and was extremely patient with us. Janie was extremely diligent in her research of properties that she felt would suit our needs, and never failed to not only meet, but exceed our expectations. We valued her experience, knowledge and opinions. We would never use any other realtor.”
– Scott & Tara Subeck – Northfield

“We found Janie to be the perfect agent for our family. She was incredibly responsive to our needs and requests as both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. She helped find us the perfect home for our needs and guided us through the negotiation process to get the best price.
