My Client Reviews
I recently sold a property in Myrtle Beach from my home in NJ. Jan was very efficient in showing my property and finding a buyer. She also helped me with all of the many details that present themselves with selling a property remotely. I would not hesitate to contact her again, and would highly recommend her as an excellent agent.

I could talk for DAYS about the best-in-class / white-glove support I received from Jan throughout this home-buying process, but I've summarized the amazing parntership she provided in a few quick bullets below. Executive Summary - home buyers should do everything they can to secure Jan as Realtor - she was nothing short of spectacular, and I'm Team Jan for life! Above & Beyond support: 1. After a 1-HR introduction phone call, Jan deeply understood my needs/requirements, and within 24 hours, had pulled together a list of 30 homes for initial review. To be clear - every single 1 of the 30 met my criteria - and she did all of that work in literally 1 day 2. I quickly vetted the list of 30, and with Jan's unwavering support, market intel, personal anecdotes on what to prioritize, we got to a final list of 10 properties on a Sunday evening; by Monday afternoon, Jan had appointments for all 10, and we saw each of the prioritized homes on Wednesday (have never seen someone work so efficiently!) 3. We knew immediately when we saw the 1 of 10 homes we loved, and Jan kicked it into another gear from that point, including: - Found me the best Mortgage broker in town (Alpha) who worked with me to get my mortgage app approved in less than a week - Introduced me to her favorite legal firm (Hutchens), and coordinated with all lawyers/paralegals every step of the way - including figuring out owner-occupied vs. investment taxation, where I was sorely uneducated - and Jan + legal teams had my fully up-to-speed in 2 phone calls, and we got it done! 4. Jan helped me figure out what repairs/renos we wanted to request, and worked closely with the Seller's agent to get that document signed in less than a week (broken record on how fast this woman works - she's amazing!) 5. After we closed, Jan bought a package of beach towels, chairs, koozies etc. for my parents who will be the primary residents of the home... this was absolutely unnecessary after the incredible support she had provided already - she truly went above and beyond - and demonstrated that she's not just trying to close deals & make money - it was 100% clear that Jan cared about me, my folks, and our lives in the new home - you just don't find that everyday... this is the definition of above and beyond In summary - I could not recommend Jan more - she is an absolute rockstar, and I'm happy to call her my friend now, not just business partner! #TeamJanforLife!
I had the pleasure of working with Jan in my search to relocate to Murrells Inlet from the Charlotte vicinity. Not living in the area, I had to rely on her local knowledge and communication abilities. Jan continually kept me aware of listings that met my criteria, and when I would send her listings I found online, she would immediately get back to me with honest feedback. All in all, what could have easily been a stressful situation, turned into a very pleasant experience with a wonderful outcome. Whether you're long distance relocating, just moving across town, or downsizing, up-sizing etc., I would highly recommend Jan's services.
Jan went above and beyond for us as an out of state buyer. She attended the walk-thru on our behalf and got us all the utility and local info to get everything going smoothly. She was honest and pointed out some issues at the properties we looked at that I would not have noticed. I highly recommend her services. She really looks out for her buyers.
I had very hard deal with months of waiting time because of water heater blew up, but Jan was with me all the time responding to new challenges and helping me handle all the stress. True professional with great experience and attitude to the job. 10/10
I cannnot give Jan enough praise. My son and I would never be in our new home if Jan wasn't our agent. We had a terrible experience with Quicken Loans. Jan put me in touch with a different lender and we ended up with a nicer home. Jan also saved me from purchasing a home in a area that was flooded two years ago. My oldest son will be purchasing a home in approx. 6-8 months. Jan will be the 1st call we make. Thank you very much, Jan!!!

Jan did an excellent job showing us multiple properties until we could settle on exactly what we were looking for! Jan was also extremely helpful in aiding us several glitches during closing!
Jan was a pleasure to work with. She initially came to look at my house and was very thorough in asking what would be included and excluded in the sale. She measured all the rooms and then showed me several comps for similar homes in the area. She also gave me a couple tips to help the sale go quickly. My house sold in less than a week because Jan did a great job marketing the house and negotiating with the buyers. I would certainly ask Jan to sell any properties of mine in the future.

We were so blessed to have Jan as our realtor. She was friendly and ever so thorough in all our discussions. She offered suggestions which we appreciated. Jan was the only realtor we spoke with and we surely made a great choice. We would recommend anyone selling property to contact Jan. You will not be sorry. She was the best!

Jan Buess was terrific in selling our home in Surfside Beach in July 2018. She put the sigh up on Friday and called us the following week with a prospective buyer. We closed in August. She knew her business, advised us on price and small improvements that we could do ourselves. We are so happy with the results of the sale of our house and for the expertise Jan had in assisting us. Thank you Jan Buess.

House hunting can be a stressful time. Jan was the ultimate professional and took all the anxiety out of the process. Amoung her many outstanding qualities she is first and foremost a tremendous listener and very, very patient. Never a hard sell, Jan gave us many options and we could not be happier with our purchase decision!

Jan is one of the most friendly and knowledgeable people in the real estate market today, hands down! Jan helped us buy our first home here in MBSC and the process was fast, direct, and pain free. Jan would be the choice of a wise home buyer or seller to take on the purchase of your dreams as we did... ;) thanks Jan
Working with Jan was a great experience, in that she exceeded our expectations of what was able to be done in selling our home in the late Fall, early Winter...not the best time to be selling, but we needed to get it done. The strongest trait we liked about Jan was that she knew what we needed to do to sell the home, including some upgrades to the residence, as well as solid advice in negotiating with potential buyers, and then the final buyer. We worked well as a team. We can strongly recommend Jan for selling a home. She gets it done.
Jan is a pleasure to work with. She always kept us informed/updated on the status of our property and quickly responded to any questions we had. She handled the sale of our property in a very professional manner and we were very happy with the sales price. We will have Jan assist us in all our future real estate transactions.
