Helped me find a home to rent
Jan was very professional yet personable. She knew what I needed and was looking for and found a good fit for me as a renter. She was always available on the phone or in person when I had questions and made the transition into my rental very smooth and pleasant.

Helped me buy home
Jan was extremely responsive and thorough throughout the entire process and I highly recommend her. Jan sent daily (sometimes more) updates of new properties that matched our criteria and was always available for viewings to match our schedule. She provided objective advice and always respected our opinions without forcing options on us.

Hello, Jan is great to work with and very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone in need of selling or buying a house. She does a lot of extra things, that other realtors don't do. She even helped me get my daughter to her dentist appt. We love Jan! Diane Allen

Helped me find a home to rent
Jan seemed pleasant enough at the beginning, but as soon as we identified a house we liked we were bullied into a lease. After being given assurances that the owners were ?reasonable people? and ?willing to work with us?, we reluctantly signed a lease without being able to negotiate modifications. Big mistake!! We later found out Jan was friends with the owners. One we had moved in, all requests read more like demands from both Jan and the owners. We were pushed around for more than a year by them until we finally escaped. Following our escape we received a move out report from Jan, completed without us despite our requests (and in violation of our rights) that read as though we had completely trashed the place despite the fact that the place was left in better condition than we found it. Now we?re waiting to see how much of our deposit Jan?s friends are going to withhold. Avoid Jan at all costs! Less ... More
Response fromJan Kleponis
Every one is entitled to an opinion and remember there are two sides to every story.I did disclose that the owners were friends as well as clients from the start. I represented the landlord and did fill out the state required form which the tenants signed. I did write a lease and present it to the landlords for review and acceptance. I followed the instructions of my client (the landlord) and all parties had an opportunity for changes and agreed to the terms in writing. The deposit in MD is held by the landlord and the lease is an agreement between tenant and landlord. Condition of the property was noted at move out and move in. I do not make decisions in costs or any deductions from the deposit. I do believe the tenants did get back some of their deposit. Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
Jan helped us sell and buy houses this summer. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market and her recommendations helped our house to sell in one week for a great price. The transaction was smooth and painless. On the buying side, Jan was patient, attentive and very attuned to what we wanted in a home and neighborhood. Once we did find the right home, Jan was an integral part of the whole process. She scheduled and was present for the whole inspection and any other appointments required. She helped us to negotiate a fair price and went above and beyond to make the deal happen on time and on favorable terms to both buyer and seller. I highly recommend Jan Kleponis for buying or selling real estate. Less ... More

Jan was responsive to our wants/needs. She knew the selling and buying process well. She was not pushy in our sale or purchase. She made us comfortable even during the anxious times that are inherent in moving to a new location.

Was really happy with Jan until she said it was mandatory to sign a Buyer/Agent Agreement to follow through with an offer, which was a lie. Broke the Rapport and ended the relationship immediately upon this happening.
Response fromJan Kleponis
Presumed buyer agency at the time of offer/contract must end. The buyer can sign a buyer agency agreement if they choose. If they do not wish to have representation, the agent becomes a subagent and represents the seller. When writing an offer an agent must represent one side or the other. If the agent is a sub agent no advice should be given on pricing or what inspections to ask for, such as a structural/mechanical inspection or radon or any other inspection other than termite. They did receive forms at our first meeting. We met several times and looked at various houses for quite some time. They were again given the forms to review when we wrote on offer and signed copies of everything we worked on. Their offer was not accepted and they asked to end the buyer agency the next day. I did release them from the agreement. Sorry for any misunderstanding. MD law does require a form entitled "Understanding Whom Real Estates Represent" I encourage everyone to read the form carefully.

Helped me buy and sell homes
Jan was graciously recommended to me by a satisfied client . She assisted us in finding a rental property to all time to get to know the area but all the while showed us house after house after house. I enjoyed her company, was impressed with her expertise and appreciated her advice. She knows the area, the "rules" and the market. I would highly recommend Jan Kleponis to anyone looking to buy a home in the Southern Maryland area. She's the best!!!
