Why you should list with us
Why Janet Jones? The answer is easy: We consistently produce the best results for our sellers and buyers. For many years The Janet Jones Company has been the Little Rock residential market leader with the highest percentage of transactions. In addition to being our area’s most productive real estate agency, we remain locally owned — our founder, Janet Jones, still runs the show — which means more personal attention to your needs. Truth is, we love what we do and we do it best.
Here are just a few more reasons why The Janet Jones Company can serve you best:
The Janet Jones Brand. Wherever you travel in Little Rock you’ll always see our colorful Janet Jones rainbow signs, usually with “sold” stickers attached. Our brand has come to mean something important to our clients — namely, that they can trust us to watch over them from start to finish in the buying or selling process. That’s why the majority of our business comes from repeat clients. We’ve proven our worth to them and they know they can depend on us to be fair and honest.
Relationship Selling. A key to our success is building strong relationships — with clients, agents, support staff, community leaders, loan companies, house inspectors, virtually everyone with whom we’re in contact. And we believe strong relationships result from following the Golden Rule. These kinds of deep relationships lead to more effective communication, improved knowledge of the community, more productive marketing and happier clients.
Reach. Just because we’re locally owned doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy extensive reach. Our firm has partnered with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, the largest international real estate distribution network. Membership includes over 500 of the top residential real estate firms, producing more annual home sales than any other real estate network. Thanks to this partnership, more buyers and more agents will see your home.
Exposure. You can count on us to make sure your home is seen — and seen at its best. Experience has taught us that the more photos, and the better the photos, the more responses will be generated. To that end, The Janet Jones Company engages professional photographers, develops captivating virtual tours and creates full-color information sheets to showcase your home at its finest. And in addition to listing it on Realtor.com, we advertise it each week in the statewide daily newspaper, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Support. When you engage The Janet Jones Company you can depend on our full attention. Unlike many firms, our agents are backed by a large support staff, including a closing coordinator, a relocation department, three brokers, and an advertising director — all of which means our agents have more time to devote to you. Appointments are set by us, not by some impersonal out-of-state call service. And oh yes, we’re open seven days a week.
Experience. Janet Jones agents are all full-time, hand-picked, trained professionals who average over 16 years experience in residential real estate sales. We encourage continuing education and training to hone their skills. A Janet Jones agent knows the pros and cons of neighborhoods, understands everything from the local schools to public pools, and is a true expert at the listing, marketing and selling of homes.
Track Record. When people list a home with The Janet Jones Company they have a single objective in mind: to sell it. And they call on us because we have a better track record than any other real estate company in our area — much better. The stats speak for themselves. Our agents collectively list and sell more homes per agent than anyone else in town, approximately five times the Little Rock Market Area average. This ranks Janet Jones agents in the top one percent of sales in the nation. Nationally, real estate agents average six transactions per year; our agents average 18 transactions. Nationally, only 11 percent of consumers become repeat customers of their agents; over 90 percent of our customers return to use our services again.
Community Commitment. We love Little Rock, plain and simple. Many of our agents and support staff are active participants in our community’s civic, church and charitable organizations, including everything from the local Chamber of Commerce to Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Youth Home. In 2008, we established the Johnson Melhorn Rainbow Fund to distribute grants and other assistance to local families in need. A portion of our agents’ commissions, matched by the company, funds this program, allowing us to give back to our community.
Legendary Service. Our motto is “legendary service” because throughout the 30-plus years we’ve been in business our commitment to above-and-beyond service has become, well, legendary. It’s talked about. People like to share stories of individual Janet Jones agents surpassing expectations in surprising ways. But it’s no accident. We go out of our way to select agents who demonstrate that level of commitment to service, who work together as a team and not as competitors, and who display genuine care and consideration for their clients.
