  • “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. Janet and Dustin did a great job finding contractors and making all of the arrangements for me. They also did a great job managing the contractors and making sure I got the most for my money. I would recommend Janet and Dustin because they provided very good service that made it easy for me to sell my house.” Barry Blasenheim, San Jose
