It is with great pleasure to give the highest recommendation of our realtor extraordinaire Janie Merkle in finding our dream home on the harbor in Newport Beach! Our dream, as passionate boaters, was to find the perfect waterfront home. Janie listened to what was important to us and did not waste our time. It was not easy, as there were not very many waterfront homes on the market, but her knowledge of the area, tenacity, and diligence found us our dream home. Janie was professional, honest and meticulously responsive. She kept the entire purchase process moving along seamlessly and was involved every step of the way. Janie negotiated our purchase and represented us to perfection! “Going the extra mile,” was her standard practice all the way through the transaction. — Sue & Gary Grant
