The Greene Family, Cambrian - San Jose

“I am happy to recommend Janet and Dustin to others looking to buy or sell a home in the San Francisco Bay Area. We worked together with them on both the selling of previous home and the buying of our new home and found them to be highly competent and professional in all respects.



They brought a tremendous level of energy and enthusiasm to the task of selling our house and succeeded in generating a satisfactory offer in a very short period of time. They worked tirelessly around our very busy schedules and with a demanding buyer...

I was selling my house because I was relocating to a new job. My biggest worry was that I would not have enough time to get my house ready to sell.

We were very impressed with the level of professionalism and expertise you both brought to the process…We want to thank you for the excellent follow-up communication with us in every step of the process. As you know, prompt and focused communications were specifically asked for at the time we interviewed….you not only met but clearly exceeded those expectations. The home signage and pictures of the property…were superior and represented the kind of statement we wanted to make…you had our interests at the forefront of your efforts as you negotiated with buyers’ agents…Your supportive efforts helped to make this entire process... read more

PETER A. HARVEY AND THOMAS J. MALLOY

“The Akin & Gutierrez team at Coldwell Banker is just that – a team. Professional and reliable, both Janet and Dustin work together to provide excellent client services. When buying or selling property, one is typically hit with “surprises”…Rest assured there are no surprises from this team…concern for their clients’ satisfaction doesn’t stop at “closing”…give a new meaning to the word…Needless to say, I highly recommend these folks!”

LARRY MCCULLAGH, CAMPBELL

“Now that things have settled down a “bit” we have time to reflect. We would unhesitatingly and enthusiastically recommend Janet Akin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Rose Garden. She carried us through the process of selling our parents’ home; they had lived in that home for over 53 years. To us 819 Morse Street was more than a house and she knew that. She sat down with us, explained how it would all work, allowed us to moan and comment, and then explained again. We were calmly and efficiently led through every legal hoop.... read more

JUANITA BERLO, FR. MARCEL VOGEL, & ROBERT VOGEL

From a buyer and seller perspective, I want you to know how pleased I am with your professionalism …I never thought that a Realtor would truly anticipate areas of concern and handle them before a problem arise…You deliver such a high level of service I never had a moment’s worry that something wasn’t being handled…I appreciate your friendship and expertise and look forward to referring your services to my friends and family…

BETTY DELLA-DORA, Cory Neighborhood-San Jose

We chose Janet to be our Realtor for the sale of my mother’s home. We live out of town and there were repairs and updating that needed to be done. Janet took full responsibility in getting estimates, picking out tile, paint colors, and other décor for the home. She spent unaccountable hours fulfilling our wishes. She met almost daily with someone to progress in getting the home up for sale quickly. The house looked lovely when it was completed. When I requested information or any paperwork it was done almost immediately. She constantly kept me “in the loop.” Janet’s efficiency... read more

CHUCK AND SUSAN MCGEE, WILLOW GLEN-SAN JOSE

Janet Akin and her son Dustin not only helped us buy our first home over 7 years ago but exceeded their expertise when selling that home and buying our 2nd home a year ago. Janet was so much more than just a real estate agent! Her and Dustin took the fear out of our first time buying experience by their superior professionalism and sincere caring. Janet made our dreams come true! Then 6 years later when we decided to move out of Silicon Valley and buy our dream retirement house in Monterey Janet, proved her worth by selling our first... read more
