I could not be more pleased with the professionalism, knowledge, and customer service provided by Janet Hoover. Throughout the purchase of my new home, Janet was my partner, supporting me as I negotiated a fair deal, conducted a thorough inspection of the property, and åengaged quality professionals to make necessary repairs. Janet’s recommendation for title and escrow were top flight - I received quality representation on both accounts. I appreciated Janet's attention to detail, excellent and timely follow-through, and personal touch... even helping me secure used boxes to help me with my move!
While Janet represented me in the purchase of me new home, Laura Seideman represented the sellers. I feel that both agents demonstrated high professional standards ensuring that each party was fairly represented and delighted with their purchase/sale.
We worked with Laura most of the time but with Janet as well. They were very responsive and available. We saw a lot of houses and never felt rushed. When we did bid on a house they were well prepared with comps and negotiating strategy but were never pushy or too eager to get any deal if it wasn't the right one. We liked working with them so much we then sold our condo and they worked tirelessly to get a quick sale at a great price. We have recommended other family members to work with them as well. -Represented as Buyer

Janet and Laura helped me sell my last house for an excellent price during a just recovering market and spent considerable time showing me homes to buy. They have incredible knowledge of the housing market from La Jolla to Oceanside and points inland. They used this knowledge to help me find just the right place. During both buying and selling, they walked me thought the entire process and were frank in their probable price. My house was sold in several months and I was able to purchase my current house shortly thereafter. Highly recommend this team. - Represented as Buyer and Seller
Janet helped us find a condo in Solana Beach. She showed us many properties and gave us lots of price point options. She spent a lot of time with us and was extremely knowledgable. I highly recommend Janet! - Represented as Buyer
Ms. Seideman was professional, knowledgable, courteous, timely, and a pleasure to work with. She made our move to California easier, and was an endless source of resources and support. We look forward to referring many people to her and continuing our relationship in the future. We highly recommend her!!!! - Represented as Buyer
I've known Janet since 2008, and I have total confidence in her judgment and counsel on real estate matters. She is the consummate professional, and I'm assured of that each and every time Laura has consulted with me. I would not rely on anyone else for real estate services. Laura is exceptional always.
Janet and Laura helped me with the sale of my mother's home. Their staging and pricing recommendations worked great! And when I started to lose hope, they said to not to worry...and we did get the offer and sale we hoped for! They are a great team! Thank you! - Represented as Seller

Janet was helpful, courteous, prompt, and got me a good price at about 5% below asking price. She also found a house with the features I wanted--a pool, lots of space for a library and for display of my collections, and especially on one floor. I'm told the latter is very difficult to find these days, but she did a good job and found several to choose from. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a house in the greater San Diego area. - Represented as Buyer
I am a licensed real estate broker who is active in the litigation consultation business and I do not participate in representing sellers/buyers in the market. The lease on the house I was renting was not renewed after nearly five years so I was looking to rent or purchase a home in the Solana Beach/Encinitas areas. Janet Hoover was the perfect type of agent for me - she provided listings of rental properties and sale properties. I decided to buy instead of rent. She showed me several possible homes in the agreed-upon price range, in acceptable neighborhoods. The one home which was very interesting had just come on the market and she presented an offer (one of ten overbids). I am convinced that her professionalism and persuasion with the listing agent was the key to opening escrow on the home. It closed in May 2015 and I am living in a beautiful place thanks to Janet. I highly recommend her services as she is a local Del Mar gal and knows the coastal markets very well. Plus she is an experienced agent who can hand-hold less sophisticated buyers/sellers through the sales process and close the deal. Give Janet a call and you will not be disappointed. - Represented as Buyer
We highly recommend the services of Laura Seideman of Coastal Premier Properties as your real estate agent. There are many details that make her services far superior to any others we have worked with, but bottom line is we could not have found and closed on our dream condo without her. - Represented as Buyer

My husband and I can't imagine taking the huge step of buying our first home without Janet Hoover. Although we had done our "homework" Janet was so knowledgeable and really guided us through the process. We felt that Janet just KNEW exactly what we were looking for and directed us in the right direction. Janet's patience, expertise and diligence throughout the home buying experience was unbelievable. She was in constant communication with us and we never hesitated to call her with any questions.She was also SO wonderful with our 6 year old son who was also actively involved in the process that she has since been promoted to "Auntie Janet." Although buying our first home could have been a stressful process, Janet made it quite the exciting and wonderful process as well. We are now settled into our new home which we LOVE... we can't thank Janet enough!

Laura cares so much about all of her clients. She always goes above and beyond to make sure the process is smooth and everyone is happy. She had open houses every weekend until our house sold and always gave us the best advice! - Represented as Seller
We feel blessed to have had Janet Hoover as our real estate agent. Her knowledge, advice and instincts were always appreciated. It may sound \"old school\" but we are "HAPPY" clients and that is how we think of Janet Hoover.
H Honesty Any issues were always dealt with up-front and immediately.
A Attitude and Aptitude This process was fun with such an up-beat person. Her design and horticultural knowledge and instincts about our needs made it so much easier to assess properties. An "11th hour" legal issue was handled with incredible finesse to enable the sale to close.
P Professional People Person Janet obviously loves her job and people. She knows the area and the business inside out. Her real estate partner is available if she is away and she has an extensive network of business associates if required. Her experience shows in priority and time-management skills.
P Perseverance In 7 months we must have visited over 40 properties and received many more via e-mail. Janet worked very diligently on our behalf, especially as we were from Canada.
Y Why not? "How can we make this work?" "Something is odd about this place.\" She always asked questions AND determined the answer in a timely manner.
However, most significant is the "after-sale" attention we received. With vast community contacts, she assisted with legal issues, utility companies, provided tradesmen and a gardener.
We would never hesitate to refer anyone to Janet Hoover.

Laura represented us for a single family home purchase. We were seeking some very particular features, which Laura was able to find in several prospective homes. Unfortunately, the homes we were able to find always seemed to have a line of buyers. Eventually we found a great property (better than the rest!) and Laura was able to pull off a very difficult negotiation. Just when everything was about to fly off the rails, Laura found a way to get things back on track!
Laura is professional and knowledgeable and I would highly recommend her to anyone. - Represented as Buyer

Laura Seideman goes above and beyond for her clients and her professionalism and vast knowledge of the San Diego market are very apparent when working with her. I have had the pleasure of working with Laura on several transactions in the last 8 years and without a doubt, will use her again in the future. - Represented as Buyer and Seller
I am so grateful to Janet for her professional and personable service in helping me find my dream property. I had been looking for property for almost 4 years until I was fortunate enough to ask Janet for her assistance. Within a few weeks she sent me information on several properties that were within my budget and had all the critical aspects I was looking for (reasonable price and location and GREAT views). She was always there with encouragement and savvy advise and counsel and she helped in the bidding process to obtain a better price than I could have imagined possible. Upon closing her congratulations and kindnesses meant more to me than I can adequately put into words. Janet's professionalism and inner and outer beauty and kindness is rare in any business and I have been blessed to have her working with me. Now I am in the process of building a home in Crest with a beautiful east mountain view and will be fulfilling a dream of mine as well as a dream of my dear departed Michelle.

Thanks so much, it really is a wonderful property. I moved a few things into the house and measured windows and then sat in one of the chairs in disbelief! It is really great! I didn't want to leave. You always went the extra mile even to the end with the incredible house warming present! I really appreciate the happiness you have for me and it is wonderful that your job is so rewarding for you! I am glad for now that I have found the perfect place!
I met Laura several years ago through volunteer work with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I was so impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market and enthusiasm that I called her when it came time for us to purchase a home. I warned her that we were going to be very picky and probably difficult buyers to work with. I knew she would embrace this as a challenge. She did just that! After several months of her continued patience and persistence, she found us a perfect little house in a great neighborhood. Thank you for everything, Laura!
Zephyr and Craig Wilson
Janet Hoover worked with us in a most professional, personable manner. We looked at several properties along the beach and downtown. She quickly got an idea for what we wanted and narrowed down our search to just the best places. It wasn't easy picking from three "best" places, but that was OUR problem! We genuinely recommend her to anyone wanting the best real estate services in the San Diego area.
Scot Morris and Joceline Remigio
I've been working with Laura Seideman for many years and in that time I've really seen the positive impact she has on her clients. Working with Laura is like working with family because of her ability to build strong relationships and trust. From my perspective, her relationships have been able to hold deals >together that might not have otherwise closed. She's a rare agent that I consider both a friend and a colleague.

Dear Janet, I would like to thank you for your help and wonderful care you gave us in the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new home. In my experience of the sale of three homes, I have never had an agent spend so much of her time, be so caring, and so professional. I always knew I didn't have to worry about anything because Janet was always two steps ahead of getting things done. Janet was always there when I had any questions or concerns. She was always ready for any of my silly questions. Even though they didn't sound silly to me at the time. They were still important to me and she knew they were and she always had a professional answer for me. I am and was always amazed at the knowledge Janet has of all the legal wording and to me the confusion of selling and buying a home. I always felt very safe and secure that things were as "they should be" because Janet was always on top of it. She made sure everything was right and we got was due to us. She is always professional but she can do it with a sense of humor, which I love! If and when I ever think of moving or buying another property Janet will be the one I will call because I want the best and Janet Hoover is the best! Which is what we all deserve!

We were moving to San Diego from the east coast and had never purchased real estate in CA. Before we even began looking at houses, Laura set up an online MLS profile for us so that we received information and updates daily about homes that met our criteria. She helped us focus our search, then guided us through viewing the homes when we did come to town.
But it was when we decided on a newly constructed, unfinished home that we fully realized that Laura is golden. She was unflappable through the negotiations, the countless addendums scanned and emailed across the country, the just-before-deadline document signings, and the walkthroughs she did herself when we couldn't be present. Laura made what could have been a complicated process move forward smoothly.
What we appreciated most, especially being long-distance buyers, was Laura's ability to be looking several steps ahead and advising us on what we needed to do next. She was right there with us throughout the whole transaction. In addition, her attention to detail, integrity, and friendly personality set her apart as an outstanding real estate professional.
Sue and Dave Pyke
Dear Janet: Your handling of the sale of our La Costa Green property was excellent. You and Laura were prompt in getting the property listed and when a pending offer looked like it was lost you had the good sense to bring in a contractor whose estimate of repairs persuaded the buyer to continue until the deal was done. Best wishes for the future.
Susie and Dick Clement
Laura, Thank you for helping us sell our house. We appreciate your hard work, dedication, and the way you kept us informed during every step of the selling process. Selling or buying a home can be a stressful process; however your professional manner and ability to pay attention to detail while remaining courteous and sensitive to our needs made it a real pleasure to work with you.
Mary Alice Morrison and Jim Ball
I am very pleased to offer this testimonial on behalf of Laura Seideman, who helped me find my home this past January. Laura has all the qualities I was looking for in a Realtor- highest standard of integrity, professionalism, and ethics. She was also extremely diligent in her efforts, even working on our offers and counter-offers during her vacation. Finally, she was fun to work with, and made the entire process much more enjoyable than it would otherwise have been.
Over the past year Laura has represented me on four transactions, and she handled each one with integrity, ethics and loyalty. I always felt confident that she had my best interests in mind, and thanks to Laura, I am now living in a home that I truly love! I would, and have recommended Laura to my friends and colleagues and would not consider using any REALTOR other than Laura in the future.

I am writing this note to give accolades and honest praise regarding Janet Hoover. Janet has been my real estate agent for 15 years and will continue as long as I am in California. It brings me great joy that I can say with total confidence, Janet Hoover is a true professional!!!
My first home purchase with Janet Hoover was 15 years ago. Janet ensured with each and every purchase that I stay within a comfortable price range and that the home fit my growing family’s needs. She always ensured that I understood what I would need to do physically and financially to bring the homes to a condition that was comfortable a suited my personal style.
Janet always ensured there were no “major” issues prior to the offers and once in escrow saw it through to the very end with grace and professionalism. Janet’s nature and disarming personality comforted both the selling party as well as myself. Inquiries were always made and about previous offers and flexibility of the selling party. Research was always done if I had a question and she replied back to me in exactly the time frame she said she would and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process.
When selling my properties both in a high demand market and low demand market, my homes sold within 60 days if not sooner. She never over or under priced the homes. I recall one time with one of my rental properties she went over to the home and planted fresh flowers in the front so that it had nice curb appeal……I received an offer two days later.
I had Janet work with my young employees to educate them on investing in property explained at length with her colleague in the mortgage industry what they could expect with the home buying process. Several of them purchased their first homes and many have purchased second and third homes as their family grew. I would never have put my employees whom I value so much with Janet if I wasn’t 100% sure of her ability.
I have used Laura Seideman's realtor services on 4 occasions with outstanding results every time. Her work ethic and follow through during the home buying AND selling process is commendable. She seems to be ahead of the curve at every turn. I would highly recommend her services if you are considering buying or selling a home. You will be happy you did!

"Janet has been very helpful during my search for a new home. I would highly recommend her if you're in the market."
My husband, Don and I have worked with Laura three times in a short period of time, to sell two houses and buy one. She was wonderful in all aspects of selling and buying. She was very professional, honest and always available. She was enjoyable to work with and I missed her daily calls when we finally closed. I would recommend Laura without hesitation.

Laura helped me with my relocation to San Diego. She was very knowledgeable about the current state of the market (which at that point was still very weak), properties and neighborhoods. I had heartburn over the high costs of real estate in California, but Laura was able to identify a number of properties that met my preferences and price range. Her communications were timely and excellent, and she was on top of every detail. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, or work with her again!
The only thing consistent in this crazy housing market was Janet Hoover's expertise! We were first time home buyers and knew next to nothing about the home buying process but Janet helped us though it every step of the way. I had literally hundreds of questions and Janet was always very responsive and clear when educating us on the process. Choosing the right home was the hardest part- as soon as we got our accepted offer Janet did a ton of behind-the-scenes negotiation to get us some really great deals. We walked away with our keys saying, 'Man, we didn't have to do anything! Janet took care of it all for us!' so it was a really great feeling. We highly recommend Janet and her partner, Laura, to any homebuyer! My husband and I can't thank Janet Hoover enough for our wonderful home! She was so motivating and positive in a difficult real estate market.......selling both our home and finding us a beautiful home with an ocean view, citrus trees and roses! Janet promotes such great customer service....we have recommended her to three of our friends...with wonderful success for them. Thanks again Janet!!

As first time home buyers, we were thankful that Laura took the time to make sure that the home that we chose was not only the one that we liked, but was functional, affordable, and met everyone one of the
criteria that we set at our initial meeting. Due to my work schedule our availability was tough to meet and view new homes. Laura was willing to meet us at odd times and with short notice which allowed us to get the purchase done quickly.
The home that we bought was a foreclosure and Laura's knowledge of the San Diego market in regard to location and price selection along with her ability to deal with the bank and the other selling agent gave us confidence that we would end up with the house that we wanted. Laura's integrity and loyalty to us as homebuyers put Andrea and I at ease that we were a top priority to her.
When it comes time for us to move again our first phone call will be to Laura to not only sell our home, but to find us a dream home.

Laura is an amazing and energetic woman that KNOWS real estate. She has a passion for finding what a client needs. She is truly gifted. With these qualities, there isn't anyone else I would contact for help finding my perfect home!
Molly and I wanted to sincerely thank both of you for all your work and assistance in handling our TWO short sales. You also were great with me in my condo purchase back in 2005, and I was very happy with that sale and search process.
It was a very difficult process for us to go through the short sales in back to back years. You both eased our fears and anxiety with the entire process. We know we can refer our friends and family to you with confidence --- with the knowledge you be professional
and a great asset in the real estate process.
When we are ready for another real estate purchase, or some very good advice on all matters related to real estate, Molly & I will have the two of you handle all the details for us. Three for three - very happy all three times.
Thank you very much for doing all that you have for almost a decade.

I give Laura and Janet a 5 out of 5 ***** star rating. They have assisted me with four transactions over the years. I had already moved away from San Diego and needed to get my home sold quickly. This was during a challenging time when the California housing market was plummeting. I appreciated all the hard work and effort they made in getting my home sold… I've never known realtors who spend their day pruning the backyard, cleaning it up and staging it (not to mention lending furniture), doing a final tenant inspection for their client, and delivering furniture. They literally went out of their way to get my home sold. I truly appreciate their hard work and professionalism. As a repeat customer I knew I could rely on them so I asked them to step in and get it sold...that they did! They sold it quickly and within the asking price and made the selling process appear seamless to me. Their customer service and creative ideas were above and beyond my expectations. They kept me informed throughout the process while they took care of every detail and made the experience a positive one. I highly recommend them!

Thanks again for your help with the condo. Your organizational skills are superb! I loved our open communications. You got back to me right away on all my questions. I will definitely keep your card and keep you in mind for all and my family and my friends' real estate needs. P.S. Ray and I were just dreaming of owning in La Jolla and now, we're living that dream.

Janet and Laura are a great team! We needed to sell my Mother’s condo by a certain date, and with their suggestions and strategies we did! And it sold for the amount we had hoped for! The whole process went smoothly, and their use of electronic signatures, etc. enabled everything to move quickly. They kept us informed of every step. But more importantly, when it didn’t sell right away, they said not to worry…that it would. And it did! Thank you!

Janet and Laura are absolutely wonderful. They are fast, efficient and very knowledgeable as well as master negotiators. I couldn't have asked for a smoother transaction.

I've had my share of real estate transactions dealing with different agents both here and in Hawaii - none compare to the service, knowledge and expertise of "Hoover & Seideman". You, by far, have been the best that have represented me. Buying and selling a home can be very stressful, but you've made it so fun and easy for me with your intricate attention to detail over the past seven years.
The sale of my Del Mar home in 2007 was amazing. You negotiated multiple offers and got the best price setting a precedence in the neighborhood. It remains the highest sold home in the neighborhood.
The purchase of my Carmel Valley home went very smoothly without a hitch and again, you negotiated the best possible purchase price. When the home was sold in 2011, it was during a really tough time. To my surprise, we received multiple offers and it sold for the highest price in the neighborhood.
During the tough times of 2011, there were two condo sales; one at The Grande South and another in Fashion Valley. The Fashion Valley condo sold for a fraction shy of asking price within two weeks and closed 30 days later. But what surprised me the most was the sale of The Grande. There were so many downtown condos for sale. I never imagined that you would present an offer within two weeks of listing. Then closing 30 days later. But you did it with some creativity; thinking outside of the box. Again, you negotiated the highest price possible for this unit. I still receive brochures of active and recent sales in the building and the unit that you sold for us remains the highest for that particular floor plan.
I enjoy telling family and friends about the remarkable job that you've done for me. They find it very hard to believe; I find it hard to believe. You've made little miracles happen for me and I am forever grateful.
Thank you so much, Janet & Laura!

Janet is the quintessential professional when it comes to real estate. She knows the market and she knows the area (as a native). And her inexhaustible energy and patience with clients borders on the superhuman. While she was ready and willing to give expert advice on any question we might ask, she also listened to our wishes and did her best to incorporate those into the process. We are truly grateful that we had her on our side when searching for a home, and (especially) once we were ready to put down an offer and knew all the paperwork was about to come our way. We got exactly the home we were looking for! If we were buying or selling in the future in the San Diego area we would not even consider another agent before calling Janet~Represented as Buyer

Janet Hoover is extremely knowledgeable, professional, experienced and she has a great sense of humor. She never tried to push us into buying something, because she listened and knew exactly what we were looking for in a home. We are so satisfied that we are currently engaging Janet to buy another home.

Janet and Laura helped my husband and I to buy our very first home and then we used them again several years later to sell that very first home :-) They are both extremely knowledgeable about the San Diego area, very responsive and fierce negotiators. They got us asking price for our home and we were in escrow less than week after putting it on the market. When we were looking for a home Janet was very patient when we saw close to 50 houses on our search and she was very quick to point out things that we may have not noticed about the property. I highly recommend this team they are great to work with!

It was my pleasure to work with someone that is as great as Laura. She had assisted my parents, Dave & Sally with 3 prior transactions. Laura remained very professional, informative, patient, and was always there when something came up that needed her immediate attention. With her expertise and understanding of what I was looking for, I found my home and made an offer on our first day at our first viewing. I continued to ask Laura to show me more homes, due to a delayed acceptance with a tenant in place, and she gladly did so. And with her hard work and a little luck that she brought to the table, Laura did eventually get me that first home we looked at. And I couldn’t be happier for it, as it was by far the best home out of all the homes we looked at. I am grateful for her skills both with people and her industry. I am very happy to highly recommend Laura if it’s your dream home you’re looking for and for someone that has the ability to make it happen.
