Janet Leaning on Fence

From carving her own path in a field of fresh powder 8,000 feet above sea level to exploring the ocean’s mysteries 100 feet below the surface, there is truly no limit to how far Janet Mitchell will go to pursue her passions in life.

For this driven businesswoman, going above and beyond is more than just a personal philosophy. It’s truly a way of life. In the winter of ‘74, Janet not only discovered the inherent magic of Aspen, but the genuine passion, drive and sense of adventure within herself as well. This spirit is what has allowed her to continually stretch herself both personally and professionally. Indeed, from the moment she moved here, this Roaring Fork Valley resident has dedicated herself to exceeding her own expectations as well as those of the people who put their trust in her.

A Life with No Limit

Nothing captures Janet’s irrepressible spirit more than photography and scuba diving, two of her greatest obsessions in life. Whether it’s immortalizing the picturesque setting of the Roaring Fork Valley in stunning detail through her camera or traveling to Papua New Guinea to experience the dive of her life in the South Pacific, Janet truly lives life with no limits. “I embrace every day as a new learning experience,” says Janet. “I love to grow and experience all that life has to offer, which is why I cherish being able to call Aspen home.”

Blazing New Trails

Janet’s heartfelt belief in personal growth is rivaled only by her deep commitment to professional excellence. As the owner and broker of her own real estate company, Janet has been going above and beyond the expectations of clients for more than 30 years. She’s built her reputation as a consummate professional by never settling for business as usual. Janet doesn’t follow the crowd. She blazes new trails by always looking for new and innovative ways to help people make the most of their real estate opportunities.

The Key to Success

Like any true pioneer, Janet’s key to both her personal and professional success has always been her tenacious drive to succeed. When she sets her mind on a goal, she simply doesn’t stop until she’s achieved it. This steadfast dedication is why she’s become the real estate professional of choice for local residents and the premier resource for out-of-town buyers and sellers alike. Attentive, flawless and always dependable, Janet is committed to protecting your best interests.

Raise Your Expectations

If you’re interested in selling or investing in property in Aspen and the Roaring Fork Valley, raise your expectations and give Janet Mitchell a call. Passionate, caring and always discreet, she is an experienced professional who prides herself on Going Above and Beyond to help her clients achieve their real estate goals.

I’ve done so much already to my new house and it really feels like home. I’m so happy there. My folks are in town and they absolutely love it!

Thank you again for all that you did.

We would like to highly recommend that you list or buy with Janet Mitchell.

My husband and I were completely at sea when my sister died in Colorado. We live in Connecticut and I was in charge of settling affairs. I needed to list my sister’s home and sell it as quickly as possible, even though we were thousands of miles away, with someone who cared.

Janet definitely was the best choice we could have made. She pursued possible buyers intensely with careful professionalism, never giving up in the face of setbacks.

We soon had a proper buyer and closed quickly, even as far from Colorado as we were.

As a first time home buyer who looked for over a year, Janet was very patient and highly attentive, guiding me through all the steps which were completely foreign to this newbie. In addition to well thought out advice about what to look out for both positive and negative in each listing, she also made sure I was well informed through the actual closing process. Her can do attitude, meticulous attention to detail and willingness to work around my work and travel schedule, and budget including putting in an offer over Labor Day weekend.
I would highly recommend Janet whether you are a first timer or experienced in real estate. Thank you Janet!

We just purchased a lot to build our dream home where Janet Mitchell was our real estate agent.  We have been looking for over a year, and within a couple weeks of discovering Janet, were ready to close on a lot.  Her extensive experience and 24/7 attention to detail was beyond any expectations.  We were most greatful for her consideration of our parameters and her willingness to share her vast knowledge of the area.  On the day of the closing, we felt there had been no stones unturned.  As an added bonus, we believe we found a new friend in the valley.

We would highly recommend Janet as a broker no matter whether buying or selling.

Thank you Janet,

Mike and Janet Colleran

Thank you so much for selling our home, Janet.  We appreciated how meticulous you were in every detail.  You did justice to both the buyer and seller.  Not only did you meet our whims and wishes but at every step the buyer was also considered.  Thishouse was very special to me and due to all your hard work it went to the perfect family!

I recently purchased a property where Janet Mitchell was a Transaction Broker representing both the Buyer and the Seller.  Janet managed to navigate the difficult balance of serving both parties with integrity and paying careful attention to all the details.  Her considerable experience was paramount to executing the due diligence required to effect a sound investment from the initial offer to the closing table.  I would highly recommend Janet as a broker whether buying or selling real estate.

Janet Mitchell is a true real estate zealot!  As far as I can see, she is on the case 24-7! I'm not sure she sleeps, but if she does, she is dreaming of a way to sell your house.  She concentrates on details, studies all of the similar sales, and even reads the fine print.  She sold the house in a week with a back up buyer. The closing went with out a hitch.   
Thank you, Janet.

Janet Mitchell recently helped us sell our home.   Her expertise in knowing what needed to be done to show our house in the best manner was outstanding.    She spent countless hours to make sure that everything was being done correctly from paperwork down to laying new carpet and painting the walls.  We were very impressed with her professionalism and honesty.   Without a doubt I would recommend Janet to anyone selling their home, and will certainly use her should we need a realtor in the future. 

We had two offers on our home the first day it was listed, in thanks greatly to Janet’s expertise.

Above and beyond doesn't even begin to describe Janet. She's absolutely a hero. Janet came through by following up every single detail until it was all complete. Plus, Janet stuck with a deal that took much longer than we ever expected with tenacity and grace. I would never hesitate to recommend Janet to anybody in the Roaring Fork Valley. Her attitude together with her knowledge of the Roaring Fork market make her unbeatable by anyone in the business. I'm happy to recommend her to anyone who needs her service. Anyone would be lucky to have her working for them.

In August 2016, I found out my brother has listed his home 4 months ago in the Denver area to see if anything had happened and I thought of you. Of course he listed it too high and it has sat on the market all summer and has now just lowered the price. It made me realize that I was fortunate that you did not have me do that with my home and I sold it Immediately at full price in 2015!

I have recently concluded my working relationship with Janet. My house had been on the market for over three years with an old friend and neighbor who was a real estate sales person. I was getting tired of paying taxes and utilities on the place and figured that it was time to switch to Janet, who has been in the business in the valley since the 1970s. She pointed out little things that could be upgraded to make the place more appealing to a potential buyer. That cost me a little over a thousand dollars but was positively worth it as the place sold within a couple of months following those upgrades. Janet handled the sale and closing very smoothly and efficiently and shipped me a couple of things I had left behind as I no longer live in Colorado. Most of the transaction was done by phone and email. There is a lot I miss about the Roaring Fork Valley but like my new situation as well and am happy to have finally sold my place there. Thank you Janet for the great service you provided me.

Sincerely,
Clay Dennis

I first met Janet in 2001 when I came looking at a home she had listed. I did not buy that home, but I was impressed with Janet Mitchell. So much so that when the time came to list our home for sale in 2014, Janet was the obvious choice. Janet is very straight forward and tells it like it is. She has a very thorough knowledge of the real estate market and fully understands the mechanics to make the sale happen. Plus she works very diligently. When we come back to Aspen someday (everyone does!), we know who we will be calling to help us find a place.

We bought and sold our home through Janet and couldn't have been happier after trying to deal with other real estate agencies in the Roaring Fork Valley.  Janet is professional and tireless when it comes to getting the job done; she is right to the point, doesn't play ridiculous games and she really has the clients best interest at heart.  Recently we moved back to the East Coast and have been trying to find the right agent to assist us in buying a new home for our family and it has been a nightmare.  Janet's passion and dedication to her career have left a lot to be desired in our current quest for a real- deal real estate professional.  Janet, won't you come to New Hampshire?  We could really use your expertise and knowledge!!  Thanks a million for being so wonderful to deal with.

For the last 12 months, Janet was helping us find a 3 bedroom house located between Carbondale and Glenwood that fit our budget and location. Surprisingly we found it in the Blue Lake Subdivision and acted fast because she knew the market and we had to act quickly. The very last 2 months she worked very closely with our lender and listing broker and kept me updated on everything that was happening until the closing date.

Thank you.

In early December I contacted Janet to perform a nearly impossible task. My bother passed way in August. In November, I came to the valley to clear up his estate. His home was in rough condition with frozen pipes and was in ill repair and there were other conditions that complicated the sale of the home. Janet jumped right in. She formulated several different scenarios and began narrowing the possibilities. I should mention we never actually met and I’m in South Carolina, so all of this is taking place long distance and on Good Faith (TRUST). At all times I was aware of what was going right, what was going wrong, what I needed to do, and what Janet was doing. Let me say that on 3/4/14 the home sold for a good price for the estate, but for Janet I’m sure it was the smallest commission in many years. I mention this because I can’t imagine anyone could have done it faster or for that matter at all. On the selling side of a deal, Janet is the only realtor I would recommend (out of 6 sales in my life). She is a can do, figure it out go getter, not an order taker. If you’re buying or selling a home, I would advise you to contact Janet. You’ll feel the energy and she will deliver RESULTS!
Thanks Janet

Janet made a very difficult sale move as smoothly as I could've hoped for. The transaction was complicated by the fact that I live out of state. Janet went far above and beyond in getting everything together and helping to coordinate between the various parties. Furthermore, the property had been listed for sale on and off with another broker for quite some time, without even a "nibble" in months. Miraculously, I listed it with Janet and she was able to generate interest and various potential buyers in a short time. In other words, a run-of-the-mill broker could not have accomplished what Janet was able to do. Were it not for such outstanding and dedicated assistance, I'm not sure what I would have done. Whoever is reading this... you're in the right place. Janet is THE broker for the valley, so look no further.

Janet has been my Realtor through several closings, and she was the right choice every time. Janet possesses a combination of experience, knowledge, resources and tenacity that guarantees results! Whether I’m a buyer or a seller, I trust Janet to manage every aspect of the process from start to finish, truly going above and beyond at every step. Thanks so much for your hard work and perseverance! You hung in there with me through several tough times and it paid off and I can’t tell you enough how much it means to me that you brought in such a great resource (Tom) and even paid the per diem out of pocket when closing was delayed. Of course, I will be looking for opportunities to send you referrals.

Janet was an amazing and relentless force for us during our most recent real estate transaction. We purchased a home that was under foreclosure, apparently these can be difficult and for a variety of reasons, ours was exceptionally challenging. Janet's experience, research and contacts were tremendously helpful. She is incredibly driven and remained positive and very energetic throughout a prolonged ordeal. We would not hesitate to recommend Janet or use her again. Many thanks to Janet Mitchell. She truly is a very valuable asset in today's highly competitive realty world.

I was in the market for my first home and happened to email Janet Mitchell on a house she had listed. She immediately gave me contacts for lenders and took a lot of time explaining the home buying process. We came very close to purchasing one very unique property that she had spent dozens of hours researching for us, only for us to change our minds. She stayed with us for a year until we found our dream property. She is an unstoppable force and will take the time to get you answers, documents, contacts and anything else you could ever think of. She seems to work around the clock and will do whatever it takes to get you the answers you need to make the best decision possible. She is the most dedicated, caring and hard working person I've ever met. She pays attention to details and always helps you to see the bright side of any challenge you may run into. We are glad she was a part of this great life experience with us! Thank you Janet!

Want worry free real estate transactions?  Choose Janet Mitchell!  I think she must work 24/7 as every single time I had questions for her, the response was almost instantaneous.  With her many years in real estate, she can tell you exactly what your property needs to make it attractive to a buyer, and quickly comprehends what you want in a property so you don't waste time looking at places that do not suit you.  Her attention to details is amazing and she thrives helping people complete the entire process that life changes like moving can bring. I expect intelligence, efficiency and humor in the professionals I work with; she has them all.

Janet Mitchell is by far the best real estate agent I have ever used and I have bought and sold 5 personal homes as well as several investments. She was so efficent. Janet listed my home in Glenwood Springs on a Friday Afternoon and found a buyer the next day! She handled everything from start to finish. One of the things I like best about Janet was "no surprises." She outlined everything just the way it was, told me all the costs involved, etc. She is the best!"

It would not have happened without her perseverance, patience, and professionalism. Thank you, Janet!

When my wife and I decided to sell out home, we never thought about calling anyone else other than Janet who had originally sold us our home.  We listed our home with her and the next day she called to tell us she had a buyer for our home. I knew she was good but this time she surpassed all of our expectations. Because of the current economy, we had expected to wait a long time to sell. We closed March first and she handled the closing in a very fast, efficient and very professional manner.

Janet Mitchell is the best real estate agent a buyer could have.
I'm a real estate agent in another state so my expectations are high.  Janet exceeded my expectations.  She does what she says she will do, quickly and accurately.  She anticipates what you may ask for and delivers before you ask for it. She is more about finding  the right property for you than "selling" you a property. She works tirelessly and at all hours (literally) on your behalf.
As far as I'm concerned there isn't a better agent in the area (and I have worked with quite a few).
If you want the best agent who will work tirelessly on your behalf then you want Janet.  If you want an agent after the deal has closed then you want Janet.  Janet's expertise, knowledge and friendship does not end after you close on your property.  Her work effort is exemplary and her professionalism is without question.

When it was time to buy, I was referred to Janet by a mutual friend who was a past customer of Janet’s. After explaining what I was looking for, she searched for properties that fit my needs and researched every detail of the property to the last detail. I took advantage of the First Time Homeowner’s Credit which was ending and I used an FHA loan whose terms were increasing both of which were time sensitive. Janet made sure that I was within the time frames of both the Homeowner’s Credit and the FHA loan. Janet provides a high level of service and goes above and beyond what other realtors do to get the job done. I strongly recommend using Janet Mitchell as a realtor in the know for both buyers and sellers.

Janet,

I have been an Aspen realtor for almost twenty years and I want to thank you for the time and teaching experience you gave me when I first started real estate.  You were completely unselfish with you time and expertise.  Although I'm not sure that you would remember this, you took the time to walk me over to the courthouse, personally introduce me to the tax assessor and recorder at the time, show me how to accurately and systematically research my business, help me with my first contracts, and you were not even the owner of the brokerage company - YOU CARED AND WANTED TO DO THINGS RIGHT. . . a trait that is unique to you.  I have since personally sold and listed properties in the $15,000,000 range.  In retrospect, I think that the foundation you gave me twenty years ago helped to make those deals happen. My warmest personal regards to you, Janet.    Sandye Whitaker, The Whitaker Group, Ltd., Aspen , Colorado
