Our team here at Silvercreek Realty Group makes available to all its clients, not only the professional knowledge of each individual agent, but also the combined expertise and skills of the entire team. We pride ourselves on continuing and progressive education, thus providing our clients with high quality real estate services.
I obtained a real estate license in 2003 and have had a great adventure with all kinds of buyers, sellers and investors. I came to Idaho in 2004 after retiring from teaching in Utah. I also regularly make referrals for clients who need an out-of-state agent, and all have produced excellent results. While I’ve sold all over the Treasure Valley, my primary focus is Middleton and the semi-rural areas in the western Treasure Valley where we have a vibrant mix of urban and country living.
I also work closely with sellers, advising them on preparing their home and yard to show well on the internet and in person. We carefully analyze recent market data to strategically price their home. All but one of my listings in the last three years went under contract in 10 days or less and received 96+% of asking price. A lot of work happens before a home goes on the market. Professional photos and carefully crafted descriptions attract buyers online and those who drive neighborhoods: 95+% of all the buyers. Please call me today to discuss your plans to move.
For fun, I love all things “back-to-the-land” – gardening, growing herbs and wild crafting, and healthy cooking – as well as British history, literature, movies & TV series, and Celtic music. I have two children and two grandchildren who greatly enrich my life.
If you want in-depth home research, area knowledge, and excellent service, I’m only a click away. Here’s what my former clients say about me:
“Janet sold my town home recently. She was referred to me by a neighbor who had been very satisfied with Janet’s service. She helped price my home to sell quickly but also get top value. She had a custom sign installed with designer color flyers. We had three offers within three days and sold for above asking price—her strategy to get my price worked like a charm. Plus she was positive, knowledgeable and great to work with. She helped take care of the details I didn’t have time for since I moved out of state before closing. She arranged for a long-distance closing and saw that everything was taken care of correctly and on time. Janet is the best!” Dottie (moved out of state, sold her townhome)
“Janet came highly recommended from my brother. He had called me from New Jersey to recommend Janet when I told him I was looking into buying a home. She had been his realtor for a house he had sold here in Idaho, prior to moving to New Jersey. Mike couldn’t say enough about how wonderful, knowledgeable and on-top of things Janet was. Well, she certainly lived up to those praises and even surpassed them. If it wasn’t for her diligence, commitment, and patience in helping us to obtain the right financing for the right home, I am certain we wouldn’t be homeowners today. Thank you, Janet, for making our dream of owning a home a reality!” Eric and Frances (local home buyers)
“When we decided to sell our home in Northwest Boise, we engaged Janet Kent to be our listing agent. We liked her forthright, honest presentation and enthusiasm for our sale. We quickly learned that Janet is a sincere and hard-working professional dedicated to her clients’ success. Her knowledge of conditioning and selling real estate is impressive. She has a strong network of contacts in the industry and readily draws advice and information from her resources to achieve the best results. She guided us through the process and gave us excellent recommendations for getting the best price. Once our home was ready for listing, it sold in ten days. We were so pleased we retained Janet to represent us in the purchase of our current home. Once again we were very pleased with her performance. Janet is experienced and knows her business. She strives to keep her knowledge current and actively monitors the market. She works hard for her clients and does it with enthusiasm that is contagious. We highly recommend Janet to anyone seeking a real estate agent.” Larry and Carol (sold home and up-sized to a new one)
“Janet is awesome, she is so energetic and inspiring. We truly enjoyed working with her and would do it all over again. Madeleine, our 5-year-old daughter, asks often when we will see Janet again. She was part of a major life change and she helped make it a good one for all of us. Janet, you went over and above all of our expectations, other agents should follow your lead. Thanks again!” Michael & Leneah (relocated from out-of-state)
“Janet Kent is the most dedicated realtor in the market and offers a whole new class to the word, “realtor.” Janet has sold two of my rental properties and set up the entire purchase a two-acre commercial land deal for one of my businesses and was able to negotiate an incredible price. Janet has significant knowledge of the real estate industry and offers a superior service including marketing strategies, negotiating abilities, and is willing to make the extra efforts of doing a great amount of research to ensure you make the right decision while buying or selling your property. Not only does Janet offer these extraordinary skills….she also impresses me with small stuff such as answering the phone. Over the past years of doing business with Janet and the numerous phone calls I’ve made to her, I cannot remember a time where she did not answer a phone call within the first two rings. Janet Kent is the real deal and I want to express my most sincere recommendation to you while you’re choosing the right realtor for your future.” Keith (10 residential & commercial transactions, within his extended family)
