“I was referred to Jan Castner by a friend. I met with Jan personally and he took down all the details of what I wanted in a perfect home. After some discussion he teamed me with Michelle, one of his “best: team members he said.
Michelle and Jan both showed me homes and we finally found a home that suits me and my family especially since I needed space for my Mother to live with us as well. .
From the start Jan and his Michelle, took care of the details with the mortgage company and all the paperwork necessary for me to get into my first home. They communicated, stayed on top of the process and negotiated for me so well! I would highly recommend Jan Castner and his Team (especially Michelle) to anyone considering selling or buying a home. - Danielle Gregory
.... We wanted to sell our home. I had read some of Jan Castner's ads and had received some information in the mail but was not sure. So, we called him and he came over have a casual talk and to explain his 29 day plan. We decided to try it but were certain it would be like our friends when they tried to sell their home. But surprise to us because Jan sold our home in 18 days at almost listed price! But we had to find a larger home so Jan showed us some homes and on the second day he showed us a home that was prelisted. The owner had listed it but wanted to wait until they finished painting. Jan showed it to us, we loved it, made an offer and bought it. Jan really helped get us a good price for the new home. We are so happy that we listed and bought our new home with Jan because he was right. He told us our biggest problem would be packing and it really was! He handled both sales so magnificent and calm. I'll hire you again Jan!
... I wanted to thank you Jan for what you did for Terry and I. The last realtor we had (you know her) we knew from before but after 4 months Terry grew tired of waiting for someone to come through and we wanted that other home enough we were even going to pay cash. However, to be honest, I didn’t believe you either when I saw your letters and ads but Terry did!
I can’t believe you only took a bit over 2 weeks and we had a sale! I thought for certain you would want us to lower the price but you didn’t. Your staff was great and well-oiled and we just cannot say enough we are so pleased. Should have done it earlier or at least had you in when we interviewed. That won’t happen again, Jan.
I don’t think we will be moving any time soon again but there is another Doc in the hospital that wants your name and I gave it to him. He should be calling you soon to sell his house and they would want to find another in the same school district. I think they’re in Central Dauphin. I know you can handle it Jan, don’t let me down buddy, my neck is on the referral line but I’m certain you do just great with Ben. I’ll keep giving you some names from time to time as the hospital has some staff moving now and then. Thanks for all you did and have a great Thanksgiving!
Jan was instrumental in securing a sale of my property that far out sized my expectations. The sale price was more than I had thought I could get! The speed and ease of all facets of the sale was amazing, and Jan's knowledge of the process of getting the property ready to settle was exemplary. This was the first property I had ever sold, so my angst was great, but Jan put me at ease and helped me in many ways to navigate the difficult process of downsizing my extensive amount of inventory and personal effects that had accumulated in the 3 outbuildings, the oversized 2 car garage, and the many other parts of the house that were full of things that had to be moved out by the settlement date. In conclusion, Jan was outstanding in every way in the successful sale of my familial house of 51 years and I will always hold him in high esteem for this professionalism.
"We were in the process of selling our business in Mechanicsburg and purchasing another in North Myrtle Beach. We contacted Jan Castner initially for one of his reports on what our home would need to have done prior to placing it on the market. During a brief appointment, Jan explained his selling system and how it quickly sells homes.
We went with Jan and his team with full expectation of a move and new business in another state. However, our plans took a bad turn when the person buying our business was not able to complete the deal. Jan didn’t flinch and waited until the time when we were ready. Eventually our business sold and we gave Jan a 3 day notice that we would be moving (kind of funny now!).
I was amazed, truly amazed, at how quickly his “machine” as he calls it, went into motion. He had the home sold in 7 days! Other agents had shown it but once Jan went in personally, with one of his “buyers in wait” as he says, – viola! – home was sold to a well qualified young couple! We couldn’t believe how smoothly the sale went during the mortgage process and his team stayed right on top and kept us informed every step of the way.
We are now settling down in South Carolina with our new business and Jan has also indicated he will assist us in our home search there with a special referral to an agent he personally knows. For anyone looking for top shelf service and thinking about selling a home, we highly recommend Jan, his team and that wonderful technology of his. Anyone would be foolish to look elsewhere for a realtor! Thanks Jan, for the help, your confidence and we look forward to setting roots in our new Myrtle beach home. We’ll send photos!
Let us know when you’re coming down – we’ll have some baked goods for you!
" I had been through 4 other high end brokers. None could sell "THE MARY K MANSION". It came to a point where we now needed to sell. My assitant contact Jan and we met with him. I didn't believe he could sell something on Front Street in Harrisbrug known for a sour history in 29 days. I decided to take him up on because what the heck.
He sold it in 21 days! I couldn't believe it! It's nice to work with someon who knows how to handle "business"! Thanks for helping sell "The Mansion" jan it was a pleasure working with you."
" .... We had just been married a few months and looking for our first home. . .... when we met Jan through an on-line service. Of course we were skeptical beacuse we thought he was like most realtors and wanted to just make a deal but we decided to try. When we contacted him he had a home listed and he quickly led us through the process of buying and what it would take. We looked it over, felt ity was just wonderful for us and wanted to buy it - we were one of the first to see it! He even suggested that " since you have to have some money left over after the sale because even curtains and the cable cost money just to start up, let's see if the seller can help with some costs " we took his advice and he convinnced the seller to pay for part of our closing costs. A problem came along and Jan didn't flinch, he and his teammate, Charity remained calm and confident and they handled every step we took. It was all so fast and easy. Jan is truly a professional we would recommend to anyone who needs experience and guidance when house hunting! One word of caution though, he says he stops by the home about 1 konth later to see what you did with it so get it ready! We'll see you then Jan.
We had an unusual house in that it was sort of a mini estate but the extra mother-in-law arrea was something we knew not everyone would like. I tired one agent for months then switched to another agent for another 6 months and nothing. They had showings but no offers. I saw a brochure from Jan Castner and decided to try it with him. He explained how the marketing works but after the last 2 agents I thought "yeah right!" Boy do I now wish I had called him first!
The property was videoed, photographed including aerials and then broadcast. Jan found us a family who just happen to have had a Sepcial Needs adult child that could fit in the eatra monther-in-law area all the while her family was close by. Those folks even plan on getting horses in gthe near future. We were so happy our home found new owners that not only paid a great price but will find what we found in it over the years - a Home!
If you're thinking of selling - Please - Call Jan Castner - First!
I had tried another Realtor who said she had a great record! Found out after months of waiting, no communication except to ask for price reductions that she did virtually nothing! I had to chase her! I saw a flyer from Jan about his Guarantee and figured what do I have to lose! I met with Jan and he toured the home gave me suggestions to help the home sell and then shoed me an acutual marketing plan. The words that stuck our in my head the most were, "There's a difference between just listing a home and actually Marketing the home!" So True I found out! Jan sold my home for more than what the last agent had it listed for! I was so happy since now I was able to move on with my life! All I say is, if anyone is thinking of selling a home - you better call Jan Castner and his team first!
