Shane and Julie Holland – bought in Southern Dunes
Jane has been fantastic in our journey to buy a home in Florida. Nothing has ever been too much trouble and she has gone above and beyond in helping make the dream come true. She has become a trusted friend and not only got our home but so many other things that would be difficult given the distance. Recommended a management company who are great, acquired furniture and then moved it in and the old items out etc. What estate agent in the UK would do that! Emailed many times since the purchase with general Florida queries and also met up and 100% know if we needed something she would do her best to help. If you are looking to buy a property in Florida Jane and JC Penny would be a great choice to make."
Zola Family – Bought in Terra Verde
Being from Pennsylvania we thought it would be difficult to find a vacation home in Florida, Jane and Mark Dowle made the process of finding the home to the closing a great experience. Even after the closing they are still available if we have questions. You can't find two more knowledgeable and nice people in the real estate business.
Russ and Julie Heddon – Bought in Bella Piazza
Jane assisted us in the purchase of a condo in Orlando. Since we live out of town, our schedule was pretty limited. Jane went out of her way to accommodate so that we could view the unit. She answered every question we had throughout the process, and didn’t leave anything to chance. What a great agent and a fantastic person.
Nnamudi Emelieze – West Haven
We met Jane in Spring 2017 in the UK and have now successfully purchased our family Floridian house in West Haven. Jane was very helpful through every step of the way. We found Jane's advice to be very concise, honest, and crucial to our decision making. Jane is a proactive agent; she'd often ask us questions we hadn't yet considered. The house we eventually bought was recommended to us by her, it wasn't one we considered but she felt we would like it. We loved it! Jane is a tenacious agent to have on side when dealing with all aspects of the buying process. She is very connected locally, knowledgeable, transparent, and will involve and update you every step of the way. More importantly, Jane as a person is very trustworthy, reliable, approachable and sincere. Jane makes the purchase about you and what would be best for you, she is not looking to make a sale at all costs. She continues to support us even after closing. Being based in the UK, we would not have been able to purchase our property without Jane and her team. We would highly recommend Jane to anyone looking to purchase in Florida.
Carole and Mark Stacey – Papworth Everard, Cambridgeshire. UK
We live in the UK and five years ago, we bought our condo in Kissimmee through JC Penny. When we decided to sell it in May of this year, Jane was absolutely brilliant! Being from the UK and never having sold a property in the US, we had no idea of what we should be doing - however Jane was so informative at each step of the way. She always listened to our concerns, giving straightforward advice at every opportunity. On the day that the property was marketed, we received a wonderful offer from a cash buyer and the sale closed less than four weeks later! Jane was always there at each step of the way, with her sound advice and good humour. We found her to be extremely personable and completely reliable and trustworthy. If ever we buy or sell in the US again, I would chose Jane as our agent again in a heartbeat - she approached the sale of our property with integrity and honesty and worked diligently for us at all times. Thank you so much for your hard work, Jane - we really do appreciate it.

We have had the pleasure of Mark and Jane helping us achieve what has been a dream for many years. Having been selected to appear on ‘A Place in the Sun’ Channel 4 had asked JC Penny Realtors to sort out properties for us whilst we filmed ‘A Place in the Sun’, they were given a very difficult short list of our requirements, needed to be a condo, there needed to be lift access, it needed to be gated and all within ten minutes of Disney! Even with these requirements they came up with some great, but not quite right properties. Once filming had finished Mark and Jane took over, and boy did they look after us. First they drove us to set up an American bank account, then to meet Accountants, without either of these you can’t purchase a property. Jane had come up with a list of further properties, which we looked at over the next two days. Mark & Jane drove us around from one property to the next, each time they listened to what we liked and didn’t like, and the next properties had none of the dislikes. They both know there stuff. We narrowed it down to two properties. So they drove us back to both properties. One condo was ready to live in, nothing needed doing what so ever, the other had been empty for a while and needed some work carrying out. As we are UK based this was an issue as we had no clue about any local tradesmen, or anyone in Florida to gain access to let the tradesmen in! They again came to our aid, they could, if we bought that property, find the tradesmen we needed and let them in to carry out the work. So after dropping us at the airport we flew home with a 75% idea of which property we wanted. They advised us to not rush a decision and to take a step back and look at it with fresh eyes. Two days after getting back home we rang Mark to put an offer in. This is where Jane comes into her own, she dealt with back and forth negotiations between the bank and us, and in the end she negotiated a fantastic deal for us. We had regular calls and emails keeping us informed as to how things were progressing and finally the call came through to say it was done, deal closed, we now had our own little piece of Orlando sun. But that’s not the end, not by a long way. Even though the deal was closed and they had no obligation to aid in any other way, they did! We bought the condo that required a bit of work doing. They found tradesmen, let us know the costs and then once agreed they took the time to go and let these into the property to carry out the work, and ensured it was carried out correctly, even sending us photos of the work been done! We still had questions and they came up with the answers, not a problem. We flew back into Orlando a month after closing the deal. Who was there to meet us, Mark and Jane, again they took time out to help us get our bearings, took us to the best places to buy the things we needed for the condo and ensured we had everything we needed, they then sorted out several Property Management companies to come and see us, so we could choose who we liked. They at no point tried to persuade us into anything, from properties to banks to tradesmen, they advised and let us call the shots; they answered any questions we had, no matter how daft it may have seemed. We now like to consider them as friends, and would without doubt recommend them to anyone wanting a little piece of Orlando sun. Thank you Mark & Jane, without you we would never have bought a property and would still be sat at home looking at properties and dreaming!

Hello Jon, We met you and your team last year at the Place in the Sun exhibition in London. We were so impressed with your knowledge, professionalism, and the way that our contact with your team was followed up. We eventually came over to Florida in January this year and Jane Dowle supported us through every step of our house purchase. We wanted you to know just how amazing she was - a real credit to your organization. I’ve copied below the testimonial that we’ve just written for Jane, every word is true! “We met Jane at the ‘A Place in the Sun’ exhibition in London during May 2016 where we were researching our long-held dream of buying a property in central Florida. Jane and her colleagues were welcoming, approachable and had an obvious depth of knowledge about the real estate market in that area which gave us a great deal of confidence. Jane stayed in touch over the next few months, providing information and answering our questions by email and on the phone. She was always happy to answer enquiries and was engaged in our progress but was never pushy. When we finally confirmed a date to look at properties, Jane sent us a long list that met our criteria and we shortlisted from there. From our first day of viewings it was as if we had known Jane forever – she was friendly, great company and so very helpful. We were comfortable in putting our complete trust in Jane from the very beginning. Having obviously listened carefully to our comments about the properties that we’d seen, Jane suggested a further three homes which were all exceptional; indeed we went on to purchase one of them. Jane continued to provide solid support and advice through our decision-making process, she was tenacious in the negotiation stage and kept us fully informed after we’d had to return to the UK. The whole process was dealt with professionally, honestly and with such confidence that we were never in any doubt that we were getting the best advice and that our interests were being fully represented at all times. Jane really went above and beyond, she couldn’t have been more helpful or proactive and it goes without saying that we would absolutely recommend her, and JC Penny Realty, to anyone thinking of purchasing property in the Orlando area.” With our best regards, Karl and Ferial Rolfe

I am writing to thank Jane for her endless help, support and patience during the process of her selling our townhouse for us. The house was sold at the end of May 2015. Jane kept us informed at every step of the way, from numerous viewings to the actual sale, explaining every detail to us. As we have never before sold a house, we were unsure of the procedures. As we live in the UK, we did not need to worry as Jane had everything arranged and in order for from start to finish, including dealing with the buyers, putting us in touch with the legal side of the process and also with company's to transfer our funds back to the UK. Jane is extremely friendly and supportive, whilst is very professional, with the great ability of allaying any worries, making us feel relaxed knowing that all was in her safe hands!!!! Thanks Jane, we couldn't have done this without you. Anne and Gerard Judge
