"Janet Lee is what every agent should strive to be. We developed a relationship not for the sake of a transaction but to grow a lifetime friendship. Janet was never pushy or impatient but was always there to give sound advise. The knowledge of the community and surrounding areas was top notch and she was always professional. I would highly recommend using Janet if you are looking to purchase in the area. You'll gain more than just an agent, you'll gain a friend that knows how to help you succeed in your homeownership experience and more."
Jahsaan Gilbert, Gig Harbor (Buyer) Wed, 26 Oct 2022 05:36:59 +1000
"Janet Lee, and her awesome team, have represented me on both sale and purchase transactions over the last 8 years with excellent results. Never has an issue come up that she/her team did not either take care of personally or know the best people to get it done, fast. Even when it was not directly related to the transaction, they handled it, or offered to.
This can be a very stressful time, I remember. It doesn't have to be, now I know.
Thank you again Janet and team."

Janet has been fantastic in terms of marketing ,prepping the home ,staging the home , And coming up with a sales plan of action,. Her fund of knowledge, particularly at the local real estate market, as well as our prior experiences with her, let us to select her. Janets demeanor is always graceful and calm, and she handles the hectic business world of real estate and a very positive, upbeat manner.

Janet & her team provided beautiful staging that made the place (a former rental) look so good I thought I'd want to move in!
Great photography as well.
Thank you Janet! You're the best!"

"I've known Janet for years and wouldn't trust anyone more than I do her handling the buying and selling of a home! A true local professional!"
Brett Rafter, Gig Harbor, WA (Buyer) Fri, 03 Jan 2020 14:08:00 +1000
"Had a great team of professionals that helped us expedite our sale and purchase. I was sketical about the value of staging and the amount of work involved in preparing the house to be shown, but it really paid off. I trust her judgement completely in both the preparation and the advise she gave us in pricing the home. We we're both buying and selling without any contingencies so it was to our advantage to have a speedy yet fair process which she and her team handled expertly. I would highly reccommend Janet."
Tom and Verna Herron, Gig Harbor (Buyer) Thu, 21 Nov 2019 00:43:00 +1000
"We highly recommend Janet Lee! She has a special way of working with and helping people. Her experience in the local market is unrivaled - so important when you are working with the sale of your primary residence, and likely your most important investment. Janet worked hard for us, and we will always appreciate the extra effort she put into the successful sale of our home.

"My wife and I had a wonderful experience locating and purchasing a house in Gig Harbor with Janet Lee. She is a very experienced agent who is knowledgeable of the target area which is key for us. Janet was able to guide us through the purchase and sale agreement process and was instrumental in providing references for various inspections that we required. She patiently listened to our needs and wants and was able to give us guidance. We would recommend Janet Lee to our relatives and friends. Well done!"

"We found Janet Lee via an internet search, went to her web page, then met her at one of her listing properties and we were highly impressed with her knowledge of the area and market, integrity and professionalism. We knew within a couple minutes of meeting her that she was who we wanted to work with.
Janet has been outstanding in every aspect. She goes the extra mile to be helpful, never made us feel rushed (and we knew she was very busy, but she never made us feel like she was on a time schedule) and was just wonderful. We can't say enough good things about our experience working with Janet. We have already referred another couple to her who are looking for a home and have given her name out to a number of other people who have heard us talk about how great she is to work with. She also referred us to a Windermere agent in our area who helped us sell our home. He was great also and we have Janet to thank for that also. She gave us tips for movers also.
We've already referred people to Janet and will continue to do do. She is fantastic to work with. She has made this entire process easy and she really does go the extra mile to help."
Doug & Lisa Holm, Gig Harbor (Buyer) Wed, 02 May 2018 10:29:32 +1000
"We had a rental house that we were selling. It required more than some TLC to get it sold. Additionally, I often work out of the country. Throughout the process we leaned on The Lee Team for guidance, support, and quite often some heavy lifting. They were outstanding! They provided expert advice, kept us updated, and met every challenge. They were a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them."
Dan Dawson, Gig Harbor, WA (Seller) Sat, 09 Sep 2017 01:39:53 +1000
"After talking with a few real estate agents, we were glad that we picked Janet Lee and her Team to sell our home.
Janet was able to collaborate with all parties creating a oneness of purpose focusing on a successful buy-sale for everyone. Her Team provided excellent service and professional care. Janet’s attention to detail, expertise of market and timely communication helped everything go smoothly. Highly recommended."

"What a wonderful experience it was purchasing our home. Brenna Harrington, and Janet Lee made it possible to close escrow in a little over two weeks!
These are serious realtors. They know their stuff. They are trustworthy, reliable, and exacting. We can't say enough about the wonderful service we received from the Lee Team."
Dave and Anita Willson. Gig Harbor, Wa (Buyer) Sat, 25 Feb 2017 12:10:26 +1000
"The Lee Team is incredible and I HIGHLY recommend them! I chose The Lee Team because I have a lot of friends that have used them and were 100% satisfied with them. I first approached Brenna when my husband and I were curious about how our house would do if listed. Even though we were mostly requesting data to see "what if" and not very serious, Brenna gave us an in-depth overview of our home's approximate sale price and the current market conditions after visiting our home. We were super impressed that she took the time to create such a professional portfolio of information for us to view! Still, we decided not to sell at that time and Brenna was understanding and did not pressure us at all. Fast forward four months and we drastically changed our minds and once again asked Brenna for current marketing info. She responded quickly and we set up an appointment to meet with her the following day. We met with both Brenna and Janet in the next couple days, as well as their interior designer/stager, and our home was ready to list in less than 10 days! Due to The Lee Team's great relationships within in the community, we were able to get contractors out to get everything ready in record time. PLUS, I was blown away when they included the interior designer, all the staging decor, a professional photographer and videographer, and a professional house cleaner in the process---for FREE! I know people who have listed with other agents and had to pay for those things themselves, so we were thrilled that they were included without cost to us. Our house sold VERY quickly and The Lee Team was there for us every step of the way to closing. We truly appreciated the way Janet and Brenna (and Kirsten!) were quick to respond to our questions and concerns throughout the process. I would definitely recommend them and plan to use them again in the future!"
Kathe in Gig Harbor WA (Seller) Sat, 29 Oct 2016 11:04:23 +1000
"The Lee Team is truly made of a collaboration of stagers, photographers, videographers, and they also were able to help us with finding movers and various repairmen. They were there for us in every step of our selling two houses and for purchasing our new home.
My initial opinion of the real estate industry was that it was made up of agents signing contracts, and doing nothing else to deserve large commissions. That opinion changed drastically after experiencing The Lee Team and seeing them involved in every aspect of selling two houses for us. Services included advertising, contract negotiations, and providing services such as house cleaning and staging at their expense. We have friends who have listed with other agents who did not help with any of those services not even being able to refer repair companies. In addition The Lee Team is actively involved with the contractor of our new home."

"Janet is very friendly and she knows Gig Harbor. As soon as we met her, we knew we wanted to work with her.
Janet was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Excellent!
Kirsten Anderson was very helpful and wonderful to work with. She returned all my calls and emails promptly and was fun to work with.
I don't want to move again for a VERY long time, but if I did move again, I would choose to work with Janet again."
Chuck and Elizabeth Slocum, Gig Harbor (Buyer) Tue, 04 Oct 2016 11:26:35 +1000
"Our broker was highly professional and maintained excellent communications throughout the process. Could not have done this without her.
When Janet and Brenna were not available their assistant was well informed as to my needs.
They gave me excellent personal attention in a highly professional manner.
They were always on time and communicated information in a clear and timely fashion."
Jay Magruder (Buyer) Thu, 15 Sep 2016 05:54:25 +1000
"I really enjoyed working with Janet and Brenna. They are warm, friendly and also very professional. They helped us negotiate to a good price and worked in our best interest. We appreciated Brenna's willingness to meet at an inconvenient time in order to ensure we were first in line for the purchase. Janet and Brenna stayed on top of things throughout the purchase and everything went smoothly as a result. I highly recommend them."

"I believe The Lee Team truly cares about people and that was very important to me. They are super easy to talk to and also did a great job of helping me get my house ready to sell. I had previously used Janet in the purchase and sale of my homes and would use her again. She is a great person."
Ron DeYoung Gig Harbor (Seller) Wed, 03 Aug 2016 02:43:07 +1000
"We recently bought and sold, using Brenna Harrington and Janet Lee as our respective real estate agents.
We looked for a long time--about 2 years--to find our next house. Brenna was patient the entire time! She didn't pressure us in any way to make a decision or to settle for anything that didn't entirely meet our criteria.
During the lengthy search process, and during the buying process, when we finally found "our" house, Brenna was helpful, always going above and beyond what we expected. As often happens, there were glitches that come up along the way, and Brenna handled each glitch with prompt responses and clear explanations.
I felt like I was a "high maintenance" client of hers, frequently bombarding her with questions. She put me at ease and made us feel like we were her only client (I know we weren't!), which is a really nice feeling.
She was professional and respectful in all aspects, and timely and thorough with communication. Hopefully we won't be moving again any time soon, but if we do, I'm sure we'll use Brenna again!"

Robert Sovern (Seller) Mon, 02 May 2016 08:20:57 +1000
"Janet and Brenna were consummate professionals that also made us feel like they treated us like family and always had our best interests at heart. We felt completely confident in their judgement and recommendations.
Janet went above and beyond the call of duty - throughout all our dealings with her over two years of looking for just the right property for us, even when she had a serious injury while on a short family vacation she continued to keep in touch and on top of all the closing details and negotiations from her hospital bed! She is so amazing! Brenna and she worked as a true team and we feel blessed to have been lucky enough to have found them as our realtors. Janet was extremely patient with us and took the time to really know us and our needs and wants and we never felt pressured by her. She genuinely cares about her clients. We never felt like we were just another commission.
Any realtor can sell you a property. What you want is someone with the experience, in depth knowledge of the local market and contractors, the nuances of build quality between various builders, inspectors, building codes, homeowners associations and their covenants, factors such as what development is planned in the future next to the property you are considering, schools, and a multitude of things that they bring to your consideration that later would be important to you but in the stress of looking at multiple properties you may overlook or would not even think to consider, but might lead to buyers remorse later. Janet and Brenna's experience and expertise is invaluable and they complement each other perfectly. We are EXTREMELY satisfied!"
William & Arlene Rambo (Buyer) Fri, 22 Apr 2016 03:43:33 +1000

A big thank you to both for making our buying experience go so smoothly."

Gary Carter, Tacoma (Buyer) Thu, 27 Aug 2015 06:43:34 +1000
"What an amazing team. Brenna and Janet really went the extra mile to help us sell our house and get into a new one. The professionalism of the staging process and the photography really set our house up to be more than we ever expected. Although our house was slow to sell, Brenna was always offering support and new ideas to help us through the process. House selling and buying is a very stressful situation but I feel like Brenna and Janet were more than available at every turn. They made it feel as if we were the only clients at the time. A very patient, kind, professional and prepared team. Thank you for all you have done, we are one very happy Gig Harbor family."

"Brenna Harrington is an absolute professional and a complete joy to work with. She is polite, friendly, and provides valuable knowledge and insight. Between Brenna and her mom, Janet, they are a real estate power house for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. I am happy to provide my highest recommendation to the Lee team in any future real estate endeavors.
The purchase went very smoothly and any and all questions were answered by Brenna as they arose.
Once again, I was extremely impressed with the Lee team and I am sure they are a tremendous asset to the Windemere Real Estate Team! All of the above ratings describe exactly what one can expect from either Brenna or Janet."
Pete & Myndee Stock (Buyer) Tue, 04 Aug 2015 05:22:34 +1000
"Absolutely, Janet Lee is and was responsive to my needs; went over and beyond what I think most agents would have done. I was so pleased with Windermere Real Estate. Janet worked tirelessly on my behalf. It is difficult to be an out of state buyer, but I felt secure knowing that Janet was on my side; looking out for what I wanted. Her knowledge, caring, integrity and hard work was priceless. And, I felt so comfortable with her. I would love to know her forever. She is a rare human being.
I have already recommended to friends thinking of moving to WA to use Windermere and ask for Janet Lee."
Marion Borgese, California (Buyer) Wed, 29 Jul 2015 01:32:02 +1000
"Janet Lee was the most professional real estate agent we've encountered. She is quick and thorough when preparing your house for sale. She is associated with a "team" that
can stage and prepare your home so that it is presented in the best possible way, for a sale, that can satisfy any seller. If your sale process encounters any "bumps", Janet is
capable of negotiating solutions that can benefit both parties. We would recommend Janet and her "Team" to anyone who desires a real estate agent that is knowledgable, courteous and a comfortable communicator."
DR Gig Harbor (Seller) Fri, 05 Jun 2015 02:59:00 +1000
"Janet and Brenna have an excellent understanding and grasp of the real estate market in the Gig Harbor area. Janet was our real estate agent in the sale of our prior home and this home.She did an excellent job with both transactions which was a span of several years, so Janet has been in the real estate business not just a new comer. Good experience like Janet's is worth its weight in gold."

"Brenna and Janet sold our home in under a week for full price, and we were extremely satisfied with them as realtors. From their amazing stager to professional photographs that really stood out, The Lee Team really went the extra mile for us. They held a prompt open house and negotiated with buyer's agents when we had multiple interested parties. We appreciated Brenna's prompt responses and encouragement throughout the entire stressful process. Compared to other local realtors, The Lee Team's listings (especially staging and photography) truly stand out. We are highly recommending Brenna and Janet to anyone who needs an agent...they both get the job done!"

"Janet Lee and Brenna Harrington have helped me in the sale of two property. I totally trust their expertise and ability to know the market. They are very experienced and know this community well. Although I have known them for many years, they are always professional and courteous. It is a pleasure to do business with them.
They have my highest recommendation."
Ghita Lorenz, Gig Harbor, WA (Seller) Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:14:17 +1000
"I was looking for someone who didn't have the "whiz-bang-used-car-salesman" approach. Someone who showed integrity and sensitivity from our first meeting. Brenna Harrington will continue to be successful if she can maintain those qualities throughout her career.
The rating on Inspections is no fault of Brenna or Windermere. The buyers agent did not contact me to set up the inspection disregarding Brenna's instructions. No showings, No inspections without notifications. I have dogs, plus I live alone.
Brenna will come out of all her sales not only successful, but with new friends."
