My husband (Todd) and I have two 'nearly grown' daughters. My family is my passion and I have loved watching our daughters grow up. Our oldest daughter played tennis in college and studied Hotel and Restaurant Management. She now works as Director of Client Services at Alys Beach, FL. Our younger daughter completed grad school at The University of Texas, Dallas and now works in Houston as a Speech Pathologist. My husband and I have been married for nearly 36 years. He is a developer/builder and a huge source of my support and inspiration! We have lived in the Prairie Village area for 33 years and love it here!
We love music, sports, theater and all outdoor activities. We also enjoy traveling and keeping up with friends and family!
"We could not have had a better person for our first home purchase! Jan walked us through the process multiple times and made sure we understood everything. She also helped a great deal once we found a home in communicating with our builder and project manager to make sure everything was handled correctly and in a timely manner!
When we started we had little idea what we wanted but Jan put together our own customized home search and made finding properties very easy. Every time we liked a property she would email back the same day and give me more information about the home and also ask if it was on the list to see. She was very thorough.
I would recommend Jan Bleakley to anyone who is looking for another home or their first home! We will definitely be repeat clients with Jan when the time is right! "
"Jan was a pleasure to work with right from the start. Since this was my 1st home, I had been very nervous right from the beginning. But, she understood my personality, my needs and found houses appropriately. As a gift, she even helped me with an issue that the seller was not going to act on.
I had previously worked with other agents who, even though were smart and knowledgeable, were not as meticulous as Jan.
It was a pleasure working with Jan. I plan on buying an investment property in the next 5 years and will take Jan's help again for finding me the right one!
Thank you Jan!"
"Deciding to go with Jan Bleakley was the best choice we made when listing our house. Upon meeting with Jan for the first time, I immediately knew she was the one to help us in our next chapter in life. My husband had actually been working with another realtor and I told him Jan was the one we wanted. She had the critical qualities one should always look for in a realtor: she listens, is professional, offers expert advice and is an incredibly hard worker. Jan was available day or night to answer questions and offer advice throughout the entire process. I joked with her that I didn't know what she was going to do with all her free time once she sold our house and didn't have me to call or text her every day:)
Jan always kept us fully informed. She would immediately communicate any feedback during showings. When we got an offer she was at our house early the next morning to walk us through all our options, and, most importantly, she was the calm force we needed during the hectic time. As first time sellers, we went into this process not knowing what to expect. We would not have had the success or the wonderful experience had we not gone with Jan Bleakley. During this we sure learned that Jan gives this profession a good name. She is a hard working woman with sincere integrity.
Our specific neighborhood went through a home selling surge, with lots of homes (up to 12) and little movement. Leave it to Jan to be the first one to get a house sold and in the shortest amount of time. I would highly recommend Jan for any home buying or selling time and time again. She the hardest worker and by far the best dressed out there:)"
"I was faced with selling an unoccupied estate home in KC while living in Wichita. Jan described her marketing strategy, set reasonable expectations and saved me many trips by providing lists of service agencies needed for various home improvement and maintenance projects. Her communications skills are outstanding . I truly felt Jan was an expert partner in this project. If you need an active professional with all the skills - I suggest you talk to Jan."
"Your clients are lucky to work with someone as caring and capable as you clearly are. You are a delight to work with - your approach to helping and guiding us was as a friend and expert in what we needed to do at each step. You made one of life's most giant decisions seem easy and smooth sailing. Thank you for watching every detail so well."
"We cannot thank you enough for all you did during our home search! We could not have asked for a more smooth process. Working with you was an absolute pleasure!
We LOVE our new home!!"
"Thank you for the beautiful painting of our home and for the both difficult and exciting transition you have guided us through. You have always been phenomenal at everything you do - no surprise you are doing well in real estate!"
