Jean Wedemeyer Testimonials

Overall Great Service! Jean and Jim did a fantastic job with our first house search. They sat down and walked us through the entire process. The two of them helped us see around corners, anticipate issues and navigate a more complicated deal with ease and peace of mind. - Phil
 

Jim & Jean are fantastic!  We began our search from out of state and they did an incredible job at keeping us informed and feeling as if we were here the whole time.  They are truly a great team and we are so happy to have worked with them. – Jon & Bailey
 

Jean and Jim were amazing. I was a first-time home buyer and had many, many questions and they were able to get me answers on all of them. Talking with my other friends/family about their first home buying experience, their agents gave them literally zero help and basically set-up showings and sent over paperwork. NOT the case with Jean/Jim. They helped me along the process every step of the way from viewing houses to the closing day. I can't stress enough how lucky I was to have found them and I know I wouldn't have gotten the deal or perfect house for me without them. I can't recommend enough! – Tom

 

We’ve bought two houses and sold one with the help of Jean and Jim Wedemeyer and I can’t think of anything I would have changed about how it all went.  They’re honest and knowledgeable, we were especially appreciative of how responsive they were at critical times during the sale/purchases.  We’ll absolutely be using Jean for any future real estate transactions in the area!  - Steve & Kasia

 

We started long distance house hunting (from the Chicago area) more than a year before we were ready to buy as we tried to familiarize ourselves with the Ann Arbor housing market. Jean and Jim patiently educated us about neighborhoods and choices within our budget, plus ways to prepare ourselves for a purchase so we could act in this very hot market. Once we were ready, the Jean Team supported us, supplying helpful info, including timelines regarding the complicated process of home buying. Jean is amazingly responsive, helpful, smart, and an altogether good person and Jim does a great job as well. Couldn't recommend them more highly! - David

 

Our heartfelt thanks for your guidance.  Your advice, experience, attention to detail, willingness to devote many extra hours and do extra tasks, and most of all your compassion and understanding have no equal in our minds.   You’re an extraordinary professional, neighbor, and friend.  With appreciation - Mary.

 

My father had just passed away and I had my childhood home to sell quickly. The home needed some work and Jean and Jim knew who to call. They coordinated the contractors and even met them at the house when I couldn't get there. They understood the industry and guided me to make the necessary updates. This was the first home I had sold and at times I was feeling very overwhelmed and they both took the time to answer my questions and provide support. They worked tirelessly for me and they negotiated a sale and closing quickly. Jean and Jim were a pleasure to work with. – Cindy

 

From the first contact with Jean and Jim Wedemeyer it has been an incredible experience! They were very helpful with great suggestions for getting the house ready for selling and this was before we even signed the contract. They have been there for us and always available, even on evenings, weekends and while on their vacation. She explained the contracts and offers very well so there was never any doubt of understanding and she was there for us as the sellers.

While there were a few "bumps" in the road, from the buyer’s side, Jean was always cheerful and truly helpful for what could have been a stressful transaction. I would give them a top recommendation and hope to do future business with them. – Cathy

 

Jean prepared a great listing for my condo with fantastic photos and brought in many realtors and interested buyers. She helped me find a buyer at the price I wanted and closed the deal much sooner than I expected.  Jean was recommended to me by a neighbor who sold her condo with Jean's help, and I was completely satisfied by Jean's professional service.  Jim was super helpful with the showings and even helped me during the inspection process by identifying a needed repair to the garage door. Jean and Jim are a terrific team and bring their enthusiasm, experience and real estate knowledge to make the sale! - David

 

Jean is an amazing realtor-we are so glad we found her on Angie's List! The most important thing about her is the high level of integrity she brings to her work. We were able to trust her from the very start and we never had to doubt. She was totally committed to helping us every step of the way. Her initial review of our home revealed a few issues that could have impeded our moving forward, but she was able to recommend professionals who resolved our issues and helped us get going. She brought in a professional photographer who captured the ambience of our home and the beauty of our landscaped yard. She created brochures for house showings, and hosted an Open House. She really did everything possible to bring in "foot traffic." And anytime we got nervous, she was right there to support us.

With all of the paperwork that has to be done, she was totally on top of it-we never had to worry about documents and legalese! Her husband Jim was wonderful as well-he operated behind the scenes, but he was there when any unforeseen issues arose. Just before a second walk through by the couple who ended up buying the house, the front closet door came off the track, and my husband wasn't there to fix it. Within a half hour, Jim was there. He figured out what to do and everything came off without a hitch. I honestly can't say enough about Jean (and Jim)-their calmness, gentle friendliness, and commitment to integrity made our home sale much less stressful than previous experiences. We highly recommend them! -  Laurie & Pete

 

My plan was to interview several realtors and choose one to help sell my house. I specifically wanted to work with a realtor because of their code of ethics. Once I met with Jean, no other interviews were necessary. I liked how personable she was and how she appeared genuinely interested in the project. My initial goal was to get recommendations for a to-do list to prepare the house for the market.

When touring the house, she was so observant that she reminded me of a professional house inspector. Interestingly, there were some things she said not to re-do. For this initial meeting she discussed the comps she had prepared and introduced me to the process. I liked how she seemed familiar with the homes in the neighborhood as well as the current real estate market. 


Since that first meeting Jean was always available by email, text or phone- promptly responding to all questions. She was always aware of time lines for work that was being done and would contact me for progress reports- staying in touch without pressure. 

Once the work was finally completed, we met once again at the house for a repeat tour.  Only then could the contract be signed and an asking price be determined. Jean went over the contract in detail (including the clause where I could fire her) and showed me the latest comps (it had been a year) and we discussed and agreed upon a strategy. 

The next day Jean arranged for a graphic artist from the Reinhart office to take professional pictures. The next evening the house went on the market. The photographer put together a picture booklet of the house and an online video. There were 9 showings that first day and several over the next two days. Reinhart uses an app that helps you keep track of all of them. Because of the good offers, we discussed and she asked for "best and final" offers to be submitted on the 4th day. At the end of the 4th day she reviewed each offer and I signed an "above asking" offer as well as a backup offer. Jean explained how poorly written a "low ball" offer was. She contacted that agent, sent him the comps, and he resubmitted his offer to full asking price. 
Jean kept me informed about all timelines for inspections and appraisals and finally the financial clearance of the buyer. Of course, she was present at the closing to answer any questions. The process could not have gone more smoothly. 

I found Jean to be professional, ethical, knowledgeable, experienced, and well-prepared. She was on top of everything. She was a straight-shooter, a cheerleader and a fighter. 
I paid 6% closing costs which was divided by 4 so Jean's share was 1.5%.  – Jean & Miles

 

 

I wanted to email and formally say thank you for all your help with the house hunt. Last night was my first night in the new digs so the timing seemed appropriate. I have to say I wasn't sold on the value of a real estate agent after my first home buying experience, but you more than made up for it. Thanks for all the Ann Arbor knowledge, marketing ideas, design recommendations, responsiveness and most of all your attention to detail. I really, really appreciate it and I hope we can work together again very soon.  - Dan

 

 

On a scale of 1 to 10, Jean is an 11. She is a true professional, and with humor and an outgoing nature. - Don and Kathy 

 

 

We retained Jean to sell out house on Brockman Blvd. in a down market. She did an absolutely brilliant job (a) providing us with great advice, (b) doing a superb job assisting us with staging our home, (c) marketing the house expertly and proactively, and (d) finding us a buyer at a surprisingly high price for such a down market. Jean is thoroughly classy, and a professional’s professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as either a buyer’s or seller’s agent.  Jim

 

 

Jean is patient beyond compare-a real pro! - Wendy 

 

 

Jean becomes your friend, not just your Realtor. She was outstanding and we look forward to working with her in the future. - Melissa and Jim 

 

 

Jean updated us continuously and immediately with new information. She's great...the right balance of ambition and enthusiasm without being "pushy". She's committed to her clients. She is professional at all times, a woman of integrity. Though we hope we won't need her services again soon, we would call her is a minute if we needed a Realtor. - John and Jen 

 

 

I can think of few people who have the integrity and determination that Jean has. - Suzan 

 

 

Jean is what I call a "Dream Realtor"...the best. - Nancy 

 

 

Jean is so good! I'm so happy to have knocked on her door in January. We would like to thank her again for all her help and time. We really appreciate it. If during our stay, a friend will need a realtor agent I will not hesitate to recommend her! - Gerrald and Marie 

 

 

Jean has very, very specific strong points as well as ALL the general requirements. I could not have done this without Jean. Seriously. I am making a solemn pledge to name whatever child I have for the rest of my life after her. - Marie 

 

 

In our estimation, Jean has gone over and above the requirements in selling and finding us a home. We will be forever grateful. - Peggy 

 

 

I appreciated working with Jean. These bank deals are never easy to get through but having an agent that cares and wants to understand the process for what it is makes it a whole lot easier. I hope we do business again in the future. -Terry 

 

 

Jean is the BEST!! Selling your home is very stressful & traumatic for older people, but Jean makes it such a positive experience! She handled our mother’s delicate sale of her home & transition into a senior living experience with care and expertise. - John & Holly 

 

 

 It's not a house, it's a home and selling or buying a home is very personal...a sad time or a happy time,  or both!  Jean remembers this as she works with you and understands how you might feel… and that can make you comfortable when you say good-bye to a home...or hello.  That's how it was for me.  Jean cares…kinda like family -  Ann   

 

 

Jean was very good and helped me so much with a difficult time in my life.-Shirley 

 

 

Jean was perfect from start to finish. We could not have been happier! - Mike and Lynda 

 

 

We would absolutely recommend Jean to our family and friends. We love Jean! - Jason & Lisa 

 

 

We hired Jean to look for a house to buy (which we love)! We were so impressed with her that we then hired her to sell our condo (which we did at a price that was quite good given the market conditions). Jean was a pleasure to work with.-Doug & Yun

 

We were in a rush to find a house but did not have a realtor. An acquaintance recommended Jean Wedemeyer. She called us back the same day and took us to see 6 houses by the next morning. I've met a lot of Ann Arbor realtors but none as good as Jean. She rapidly understood what we were searching for and provided a great deal of good options and detail in short order. The Reinhart Company "email viewer" is very effective way to shop. Jean then showed us the houses we wanted to see the next morning with zero pressure and made shopping fun. She walked through the homes with us as if it were just as fun for herself as it was for us, but never pushed an opinion or steered us. Instead she probed and listened to find what we liked and didn't like. Clearly she is experienced at evaluating the mechanical, local, and aesthetic value of properties. She is the perfect buyer's realtor!  - John

 

 

Jean did an excellent job of working with three siblings in selling our mother’s condo. We were extremely impressed by her constant contact of keeping us informed of the market and potential buyers. She was very professional while being caring and supportive during a difficult time. It is our feeling that by Jean’s performance she should be voted “#1 Realtor for 2010!” -  Barb

 

 

Jean went above and beyond what I have seen other real estate agents do to sell a house. Thanks for the excellent service. -  Steve

 

 

I contacted Jean Wedemeyer of Reinhart Realty with a narrowly focused search for a rental property -- houses, condos, and apartments on a single level. Jean responded within 24 hours. She provided a list of prospects and regularly sent updates. Although Reinhart was not the listing agent for the property in which our family expressed interest, Jean represented us well, and we were successful in leasing our first choice. We very much appreciated Jean's responsiveness and professionalism. – Cassandra

 

 

Jean is great. She did a great job helping me short-sale my condo. It was a very complicated process and she was there every step of the way. She also helped me and my wife find a home at a great price the following year - Tim

 

Jean helped my wife and I find a perfect house. She was on top of every detail and made sure all the documents and information got processed in order for us to have a smooth closing. It was a pleasure to walk through houses with her and hear her opinions. She was a great help. - Will

 

 

Jean is a wonderful Realtor. She goes above and beyond in helping you sell your home. I imagine she is great to work with as well if you are looking to buy a home. I whole heartedly recommend her - Tori

 

 

Working with Jean was a delight. She has a seemingly limitless knowledge of the Ann Arbor area, and tremendous insight into helping people discover and articulate what they're looking for in a home. Thanks to Jean's persistence, resourcefulness and commitment, my wife and I have been happy home owners since January, 2010. As first time home buyers we were very cautious and unsure. Jean's familiarity with the local area, attention to detail, transparency and energy made every step of the process not only comfortable, but enjoyable. I couldn't recommend her higher. - Jason

 

 

Jean is totally committed to her clients and their individual needs. She managed to sell our home quickly in an economy which should have predicted a slow sale. She then assisted us in finding our current home (which we love!), selling another family-owned condo, and helping our daughter and son-in-law purchase their beautiful first home. All within a year! - Jennie

 

 

Jean, can't tell you how happy we were with the excellent job you did with the house . I can't say enough about your hard work and excellent communication skills. I felt totally taken care of from the very first day. I can only imagine how badly I would of screwed up the details you handled so well if I had continued to try sell the house myself. -  Mike 

 

 

Jean did an excellent job. She was diligent, hard working, innovative and a pleasure to work with. I could not praise her enough. She was always enthusiastic and supportive of me personally. I would give her my highest recommendation for anyone interested In hiring her. She went above and beyond the demands of her profession many times. I could not have asked for a better Realtor. - Joan 

 

 

Jean is the best.  Extremely knowledgeable and resourceful; expert negotiator, part home inspector, part Sherlock Holmes, part engineer, part artist, part race-car driver.  In this tough market I couldn't have found a house without her.  She'll stay up til 10 at night doing research, answering emails and phone calls – Emanuel

 

 

Jean helped sell my mother's home, a difficult home to sell due to location. She was always patient and gave great advise. Jean knows when to push to get other professionals moving to get the sale completed. We had a lot of complicating factors and Jean stayed positive and kept us moving forward. I give her my highest recommendation! - Tamber

 

 

 

I also want to take this opportunity to thank you for guiding and helping us along the home purchase process. Both Carina and I consider us lucky to have such a professional and knowledgeable agent to help us with making a very important decision. We really appreciate you being so proactive on our behalf and taking extra time to show us stores/neighborhoods within Ann Arbor. – Mike

 

 

Jean was the perfect agent to help my wife and I buy our first home in the Ann Arbor area. She explained every step of the process to us and made the process as pain free as possible. She was very professional and never made it seem like she was just trying to sell us on a place, we could tell she wanted to find us the home that was the best fit. Thanks Jean - Patrick

 

 

Jean is fantastic! She sold my house in three weeks during the holiday season- the most difficult time of the year to sell- and for a great price! She was always on the ball and went above and beyond, sometimes even watching my dogs while people looked through the house during the workday, when I was not available.  I would recommend Jean to anyone looking to buy or sell a house. She is professional, motivated, and fun to work with. – Sara

 

 

Jean was a fantastic advocate for the sale of my house. She worked diligently and was extremely knowledgeable. Jean brought in a lot of foot traffic to my condo. After only two days, I had received an offer! She was responsive to my needs and went above and beyond the call of duty by showing up to my condo to let the movers in so they could get a cost estimate while I was out of town. Jean also met with the appraiser and put together a great presentation to ensure that my condo would appraise, which it did.

Overall, Jean was professional and hard working. She truly loves her job and it shows. I would definitely use her again as my agent if I decide to move back to Ann Arbor. – Akram

 

 

May the New Year be blessed, as last year was with your great help!  - Al

 

 

There were many things we liked about Jean in our purchasing process: She made sure to understand what we wanted rather than telling us what she thought we should want. (A friend who was buying a house about the same time had a situation where the agent wouldn't listen to her, and instead tried to tell her what she should want.) There is no question she is on your side of the negotiations. She communicates promptly and effectively. If you haven't already decided on another agent, I encourage you to meet Jean and see if you hit it off as well as we did. –Tom

 

 

Jean has been very helpful in preparing our home for sale. She has given ideas to make the home look better for selling. She plans the Open Houses for times that work around the basketball games in Ann Arbor to attract the most people coming through the home. We can not say enough nice things about Jean. - Kent and Marcia

 

 

We first contacted Jean based on Angie's List reviews. We were moving from California to Ann Arbor, and needed a buyer's agent. She helped us with the unfamiliar housing market. We made an offer on a house, but it fell through upon inspection. We decided to rent instead. Over the next year, Jean kept looking for properties that met our requirements, and ultimately helped us find and purchase the perfect home. Subsequently, we have used Jean as a buyer's agent to help us find a condo for our parents who were retiring and downsizing.

Jean is a fantastic agent. I really can't recommend her highly enough. She has a keen eye for detail, know the features of a home that will add or detract from its resale value, and looks out for problems that may incur added expenses down the road. She seems to know everyone in Ann Arbor, knows and understands the market, and has developed the experience that really takes a lot of the guess-work out of purchasing a home.She had a lot of good advice for us as first-time home buyers. She has a lot of energy and enthusiasm which makes house hunting less onerous. She really listened to what we liked and didn't like about the homes we toured, and kept her eyes open for suitable new listings in the neighborhoods we were targeting. She was very prompt with information and with replying to e-mails and phone calls. She was also very patient, working with us for over a year until we found our home. -  Annie

 

 

Jean Wedemeyer is a very professional Realtor.  She treats you like you are her only client and is very prompt.  She knows her business inside and out and was able to advise us on the perfect price to list our home.  She gave us all the information we needed and provided a beautiful listing.  She gives you advice on what to do to make your home appealing to the majority of buyers and has a professional photographer come in to take outstanding pictures for the listing.  Because of her service we were able to get our asking price and close within a matter of weeks.  - Thomas and Tracey

 

 

Jean is fantastic.  My house was on the market with another realtor for more than 8 months, and I despaired of selling it.  When I switched to Jean, she sold it in less than a month.  Jean's knowledge and energy is impressive.  She knows how to set an accurate asking price, how to advertise the house, and how to find potential buyers.  She also has great suggestions for what to fix up, and great ideas for making sure that visitors notice the good features of the house.  She works hard, maintains a great attitude, and is always responsive.  I simply cannot say enough great things!  -  Kate

 

Jean, thank you so much for your hard work and quick responses.  It’s refreshing to know there are other hard-working and dedicated people out there!   Heather

 

Jean made everything easy for me and I really appreciated her help.  I had never sold a house before and Jean took care of everything.  She is very professional and I was proud that she was my realtor.  Gale

 

Jean was very hardworking, friendly, and honest.  Even though she has many clients, we felt like we were the only ones.   We would absolutely recommend her to family and friends.  Katie & Dave

 

Jean was more than responsive and helpful and made looking for houses fun.  We sent Jean an initial email and had a response within the hour setting up a time for us to speak by phone.  Throughout the process, she was on top of everything.  Jean is a wonderful person and that makes her a wonderful agent.  She knows the area well and she is knowledgeable about so many aspects of a home.  Paul & Jeanne

 

Jean was recommended to us and we would recommend her to our family and friends.  This was our first time buying a house and Jean did a great job to make it as simple and easy for us as she could.  She did an excellent job communicating with us.  Katie & Billy

 

I can’t say enough about our wonderful experience with Jean!  Even as a dual agent (the buyer was also her client) she was able to advocate for us and handled our concerns and those of the buyers wonderfully and fairly.  In our opinion, Jean is the best!  Jeff & Karen

 

Jean was fast as lightning and fantastic from beginning to end.  She explained things thoroughly and was understanding, knowledgeable, and light-hearted.  We never had a doubt in the process, Jean made us so comfortable.  Lisa & Adam

 

Jean made a process which could have been daunting into one that was smooth, professional and hassle-free for me.  She has my sincere thanks and gratitude.  Pat

 

Thank-you for guiding us through our first home-buying experience. It has been a roller coaster and we feel so fortunate to have had your advice and expertise to carry us through. We appreciate your sensitivity and assertiveness – you have been wonderful! We will definitely be back when we outgrow this house ….and refer our friends.  Kirsten & Matt

 

Jean is an Ann Arbor native who knows more than anyone about AA real estate. We were looking for a very specific property and she helped us find the perfect home with everything we were looking for, at the right price! She also navigated us through the complicated short sale buying process, which is not easy to do. We also have very ridiculous schedules and she was always more than happy to accommodate us when we wanted to see houses at odd hours. Overall, Jean is fantastic at she does, and is a lovely person to work with. We would recommend her to anyone.  Stephanie and Ryan

 

Jean was always there for my son and I as we bought this wonderful home. Jean went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure she was there when we were able to go look at homes, and followed through on every request, no matter how small! I highly recommend  Jean Wedemeyer to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Ilene

 

Jean was fantastic! We are very appreciative of all the work that she put in to helping us find a house and we look forward to working with her more in the future. Lindsay

 

Jean is a consummate professional, and extremely dedicated. She kept in frequent contact with us about showings on our home, and held frequent open houses. Our home sold quickly thanks to her hard work  Rosemary

 

Jean was a pleasure to work with. She kept me on track and knows her stuff. She is extremely understanding with the situation at hand and keeps things real and has the best sense of humor. When I got stressed she made me realize that everything would be o.k. I would recommend her to anybody buying or selling. - Paula

 

Jean was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge of the area, appraisal process, and real estate were invaluable. She worked very hard for us and we could not have done it without her! - Andrew

 

Once again, thank you for everything you did. You went above and beyond of what was expected. - Kamran

 

Jean and her husband Jim make an excellent team. They were the best realtors/property management team I have ever met and I have bought, sold, leased or rented a property every two years for the last 20 years or so. They listen, help, and care. Simply put - A ++ rating. They helped me clean up things I could not move myself with four kids while hubby relocated to CA. They even offered to help punch nail holes and finish trim and other things. If you want the most down to earth, caring, yet professional and realistically gonna get you ever dollar you can for your home - listing with Jean is the way to go. I interviewed other more highly rated realtors in the area - all were like - you need to do this, and this and this before that...things that would have cost me thousands of more dollars and were nit picky pretentious things. I also interviewed local Dexter real estate agents who were like -you used to live in a farm field - no one will care; but I did when I moved in and I knew whomever bought my place would. Jean was the perfect balance between both. Loved the country farm girl in me; yet also city girl. Not one hassle nor complaint about her nor Jim. They hardly bothered me; if clients did not like the house, they did not like it - it's not too hard to figure out why and yet, she found us the right buyer by marketing in house. Someone looking for an acre outside of AA - close, fast enough route to work, good schools - that is what Dexter is all about and if I could have cued the deer like Chevy Chase did in Funny Farm or paid off the neighbors and mail lady - nothing would have changed - cuz that was all there and she marketed it heavily. Jean is a go getter - realistic and energetic. Her husband Jim the same - there in a heartbeat if you need them. I was envious of their marriage and partnership. A perfect team.  Noreen

 

There were many things we liked about Jean in our purchasing process: She made sure to understand what we wanted rather than telling us what she thought we should want. (A friend who was buying a house about the same time had a situation where the agent wouldn't listen to her, and instead tried to tell her what she should want.) There is no question she is on your side of the negotiations. She communicates promptly and effectively. Tom

 

Jean helped us selling our investment property. She was HONEST and responsive all the way. I highly recommend her. Kady

 

Jean Wedemeyer is superb. Her knowledge of houses is extraordinary, her love for houses is amazing, and her energy and enthusiasm is boundless. We are hard to please, but she always knew we would find what we were looking for. Adam

 

Jean is a great real estate agent. This was the first home that we sold and she helped us through the process. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Mark and Emily

 

Jean helped us sell our home in the Water Hill neighborhood in Ann Arbor. She was terrific in every way and helped us get a great price. The process went really smoothly, and that was largely thanks to her. We couldn't recommend her more highly. Phil and Rachel

 

After a web search, we called Jean to help us find a small house for our daughter who will be attending grad school at U of M. We could not have been more pleased with her level effort and service as our buyer’s representative. Jean spent the better part of a weekend taking us around to about 13 different (and appropriate) houses. Once we picked one, she gave us good advice on making our offer (there was quite a bit of competition for the house). Once our offer was accepted, she was incredibly responsive and available to answer all of our questions on contractors, lawyers, local resources, etc. She's a joy to work with and we consider her a good friend. We highly recommend her!  Mark and Caroline

 

Jean, Thank you two for your superlative efforts. It was a real pleasure working with you and... getting to know you as well! Again, many thanks for all your hard work. Warmly, Susie

 

Jean was efficient, easy and fun to work with. She met all our needs and surpassed our expectations with care and patience. I would absolutely recommend her to a friend!  Sarah

 

Jean was relentless, kind, gracious and FUN to work with. She communicated, followed up and eventually helped us find our home in the exact neighborhood and school district we had hoped for. Thanks Jean, we just love you!  Bob & Katie

 

Jean was wonderful - was with us every step of the way, even after we moved in. Thanks! Jake & Marcy

 

Jean Wedemeyer helped us buy our first house.  We HIGHLY recommend Jean and would definitely use her services again. Jean came highly recommended to us by colleagues at work, and she far exceeded those already-high expectations.  We contracted with her as our full representative.  The Ann Arbor real estate market is highly competitive (especially from a buyer's standpoint), and Jean helped us every step of the way.


Jean looked at all houses with us with a critical eye, which helped us understand and recognize items that might be issues or bonuses down the road.  She helped us write a winning offer (and our first offer was accepted, which is rare for buyers in Ann Arbor).  She provided recommendations for inspectors and local contractors to give estimates for repairs, which we then used to help secure credits from the sellers.  Her advice on lenders helped us secure a mortgage with minimal effort.  She was always personable, professional, available, and ready to help at a moment's notice.  Ian

 

Jean was the best sales associate I have ever used.  Tom


Thank you two for your superlative efforts. It was a real pleasure working with you. Again, many thanks for all your hard work.  Susie & David

 

I can't say enough about this experience and our appreciation towards you and Jim. Being first-time home buyers, there were times we were uncomfortable, unsure of ourselves, and frankly a little scared. But you were there to talk through any and everything with us and really bring some calmness to the process for us. I can speak for both of us when I say we're eternally grateful for you and Jim and will be an advocate on your behalf whenever we can.  Tom

 

 

She sold our house and at the same time found us a new house! (and showed us many others in the process). Jean is hands down the best real estate agent I have ever known. She is extremely pleasant to be around (a major plus when you're communicating so frequently in the house buying/selling process). She is also very organized, punctual, and honest. We first had Jean come to our house in the spring and talk about the reality of selling. She gave us a lot of valuable information about the market in our area, as well as very important tips for getting our house ready to sell. I am a mother of two young children and getting our house in "selling" condition was daunting. But Jean really helped to prioritize the "to-do list". Once the house went on the market we had showings immediately. Jean kept everything very organized. Then came finding a new house (while the old house was on the market). Jean helped us find lots of good options and was always quick in finding times that worked for all parties involved for showings. She was patient and prompt and I appreciated her very very much.


We ended up finding a house that we loved at an open house, and thought for sure we wouldn't get it because it's in a popular neighborhood, and was right at the top of our price range, and on the market at a busy selling time (summer). But, we did get it!! Both my husband and I attribute getting the house to Jean, who spoke multiple times on our behalf to the sellers. It was a "risky" deal, since our house wasn't officially sold yet. But people know Jean, and know she is a straight shooter. Everything went through smoothly, no surprises, no problems. Jean was with us from the moment we considered selling our cute, but very small, house to the moment we were handed keys to our new house. From start to finish, my husband and I were very pleased with Jean, and feel grateful to have had her help in selling our old house and buying our new house.
We recommend Jean to anyone we know who is trying to sell or buy a house.  Molly & Jesse

 

Working with Jean was a dream. She was prompt, efficient, responsive, and very honest. And the house sold right away at a very good price.  Aaron

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  We wanted to tell you how wonderful it was to work with you. You went above and beyond and were perfect in every way.  We love our house and clearly, by the “delay” in getting this out to you, are finally getting settled in.  We miss you. – Diane, Fred and the girls

 

Thank you for all your help as we purchased our (soon-to-be) dream house in our dream neighborhood.  You have gone above and beyond to make this challenging process a positive one.  We really appreciate all your efforts and look forward to enjoying Burns Park.  Sincerely – Kevin, Nhu & Cameron

 

We can’t thank you enough for your support and guidance through this process. It has been a pleasure working on this together.  Thank you so much. – Anna & Dirk

 

We wouldn’t have found our house without Jean.  She was always available, extremely responsive, and extraordinary in helping us find such a beautiful home. She was invaluable in assisting in our relocation to Ann Arbor and helping get us settled. It was a pleasure to work with her. – Rob & Cyndy

 

Dear Jean and Jim, can’t begin to express our appreciation for everything!  Your wise counsel, from the very beginning when we first contemplated this, to the final steps of resolving the Orangeburg so ingeniously, was immeasurable.  We truly believe this may never have happened without your guidance and insight.  We are almost in disbelief at how everything has fallen into place so beautifully, and we have you to thank for that.  The icing of the cake is that we know our home will be appreciated and loved!  With eternal gratitude – Mary & Dan

 

Working with Jean in the sale of my home was an extremely pleasant experience. Besides her knowledge and responsiveness which were extraordinary, she helped make some of the most difficult parts of the process much easier for me. She went above and beyond in providing me with resources and was always available to me. She combined the right amount of comfort and support that allowed me to move forward. – Sandy

 

Jean and Jim Wedemeyer found a buyer for our house in 5 days, and they even offered over asking price! We didn't think the house would sell quickly because fall was not a good season to list a home for sale. They gave us a lot of pointers on how to make the house more presentable for sale before we listed the house. They were extremely responsive, very honest and professional. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Ann Arbor, don't even think about hiring any other agent! – Ludia

 

Jean helped me sell my parents' condo in Ann Arbor. I've been a practicing attorney for 30 years, have done a fair bit of real estate work, and have bought and sold homes and other real estate myself, so I have had quite a bit of experience with real estate brokers and agents. Jean is the very best residential broker I have ever worked with, hands down. I could not possibly overstate what a great experience I had working with her. Jean and her husband Jim were enormously helpful, knowledgeable, and accomplished a difficult task, namely helping me update the property physically, and then sell the property, all from a distance of 250 miles away (I live in Chicago). She made every step of the process a breeze. So I would recommend Jean unconditionally, and with great enthusiasm - Pete

 

The project was selling my mother's condo after she had to move to a skilled nursing center (suddenly). My brothers and I all live in other states, so we needed help with names of people who could do the work needed. Jean came through with everything. We were able to get the condo emptied out, cleaned, painted and re-carpeted. The pictures Jean's photographer took really showed the place off. The unit went on the market and immediately went into a bidding war. We sold for $15,000 over list in 4 days. Most of this project was done long distance, so the fact that Jean is so responsive was particularly helpful. I highly recommend Jean Wedemeyer! - Susan

 

We were so fortunate to have had Jean as our realtor.  She provided sound advice on how to price our home, did a superb job of marketing it, and was available at each step of the process to offer invaluable guidance - even on Mother's Day!  Our house sold to the first people who walked through, for the full asking price.  What's more, they appreciated a house that we had loved, making it easier to part with it.  Since we were relocating out of state, Jean even stood in for us as closing!  Jean is a well-informed, conscientious professional who is dedicated to her work. -  Carol & Margot

 

Jim and Jean are amazing.  They are extremely had working, knowledgeable and all around excellent folks to work with. – Tanner

 

Dear Jean, yesterday was the anniversary of our taking possession of the house.  This morning I was remembering how much you helped us find and secure this wonderful house.  We are grateful for your wisdom, knowledge of the bones of houses and especially the secret lengths of Orangeburg.  And so I just wanted to thank you.  Again.  – Adam

 

Jean was fantastic.  She was extremely responsive and professional.  Even though we were searching for a cheap condo that wouldn't generate a high commission for her, she treated us like we were her most important clients.  She spent a lot of time with us showing us condos and was very responsive to our various email inquiries.  We quickly located a good condo through her, and the sales process went smoothly.  I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anybody for Ann Arbor real estate needs. – John

 

Jean was a dream to work with! Jean has an amazing attention to detail and superb follow-up. We have purchased several homes over the years and Jean was the best agent we ever worked with. - Peggy
