    “I have been practicing Law for the past 50 years in Sales and Purchases of Residential Properties.  Homes, condominiums and cooperatives have comprised a large portion of my law practice during that time. I have had the pleasure over the past year of working closely with Janine Losey of Diligent Searches Realty in White Plains. I’ve been so impressed with how attentive Janine has been to every detail, whether it’s the thorough preparation of a memorandum of sale or the continual updates she provides throughout the pre-closing process, to how well she deals with clients  and other real estate agents. I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring the need of an excellent Real Estate
    Broker.” – J. J. Pappalardo, Esq.

    “Janine helped me every step of the way when I was buying my house and she taught me a lot! She looked after every detail and never stopped being my partner right through to closing. Even my attorney commented on her attention to detail and what a pleasure it was to work with her. ” – J. El-Taher, Buyer

    “I have had the privilege of availing myself of Janine’s service on two occasions. She has truly been a pleasure to work with. I consistently experienced her as honest, knowledgeable, hard working, fair minded and reliable. She listens to her clients carefully and tirelessly seeks to match their desires with the real estate market (which she knows so well). She is relaxed, warm and caring. In other words prospective buyers, sellers and renters will undoubtedly be pleased with being the beneficiary of her service. I heartedly endorse her, give her five stars and wish there were more stars to give.” – L. S. Burger, Esq.

    “I’ve been in the construction and inspection industries for a number of years now and I have yet to come across an individual such as Janine  that exhibits her level of
    professionalism and expertise. She puts her clients needs first above all else, absolutely loves what she does, and radiates intelligence and class. Thank you Janine for all that you do, you truly are an amazing person. ” – G. Grap, Inspector/General Contractor

    “We are first-time home buyers and Janine made the process go smoothly! We got our first choice house, on our first offer, and there was no issues at closing. Janine led us through every step of the way and was diligent about keeping us on track. We found Janine through a referral and wouldn’t hesitate to let others know about her great work! – B & R., Buyer

    “In working with Janine I found her to be extremely knowledgeable, reliable, trustworthy and intelligent. I hired her as a real estate agent in 2008 and she delivered exceptional results — not only evident in the final property purchase that she facilitated — but also in her professionalism, market knowledge, and hard work. Always prepared to answer any question thrown at her, she thinks on her feet and has an amazing capacity for negotiation along with great instincts. I felt confident having her on my team. I have since recommended her to multiple friends, family members and colleagues. She is a true professional, hard-working and results-driven, never letting up until she delivers for her clients. After such a great experience, I hired her again in 2014 to help sell my investment property and she delivered fantastic results. Should I have any other real estate needs in the future, I will no doubt be calling upon Janine and her team again.” – N. Batiste, Seller & Buyer

    “When it came to finding the house of our dreams,  Janine was relentless and
    persistent. From locating a property in our preferred school district, in conjunction with our price range, she didn’t quit until all our needs were satisfied. Janine paired a white glove, first class real estate experience with a blue collar “get it done” mentality. She is highly recommended and we would never think about using anyone else to represent us. Phenomenal!” – D. DeQuatro, Seller & Buyer

    “My business partner and I used Diligent Searches Realty to find a building to be the “home” for our newly founded business, Zen Zone Sensory Gym. Right from the start, I knew we were in good hands with Janine. She really took the time to understand our vision so we could find the perfect fit. Janine went above and beyond, walking us through the entire process. Her advise was priceless. Within a few short months, we found the perfect building and had a signed lease in our hands. Janine is professional, knowledgeable, hard working and honest. Janine gave me confidence in an area I knew little about. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”  – M. Wassil, Commercial Tenant

    “Janine was amazing in finding us our home when relocating from Florida. We had several stipulations and she was all over it. She actually went to look at places before we looked at them just to make sure they met our needs. Along with her being professional, we also had a lot of fun. I would highly recommend Janine in helping you find your new home.”  – D. Stone, Seller & Buyer
    ~
    “Janine was fully present from day one. She was quick to respond to us, quick to find available rentals, and with her help we found a perfect rental in under 2 weeks! Janine took into account all that we were looking for, and really geared the search towards what would work for us. Without her help, the process would have been so stressful and time consuming. Janine advocated for us, and walked us through every step until the very end.  Her energy and her professionalism are amazing. We’re very grateful! – J. Marangella, Tenant

    “Janine has helped me and family find a home twice over the years. Working with her has always been a pleasure. Looking for a home can be a very overwhelming experience and she made it easy. I would definitely recommend Janine,  as I have done time and time again, to my family and friends.”  – E. Steele and Family

    As a first time home buyer, I was very overwhelmed with the entire process.
    Fortunately, Janine was helpful in explaining the ins and outs every step of the way. I never felt as though I was missing information or unaware of the next steps. She found me a beautiful home in my price range and I couldn’t be happier! – D. Anuszkiewicz, Buyer
    ~
    “Janine helped me find my first home. As a first time home-buyer with a large dog trying to find an affordable co-op in Westchester wasn’t easy. I was a challenge upfront. Janine educated me on the home-buying process and always kept me informed of new listings and made it her priority to take me to as many showings as possible. She was there from very beginning when I was just considering moving, and stuck it out for about 2 years until we found the right place and was there with me on closing day in July 2009; not just as my Realtor but also as my friend. Her knowledge about real estate has been invaluable. She truly is diligent in her work and I still call her a friend today.” – J. Clark

    “Janine was referred to me when I had first moved into the area from Pennsylvania.  as being an experienced and knowledgeable Realtor.  She put lots of time and effort to help me find my home,  making sure I found a place that I was content with.  Extremely pleased with her above and beyond work ethic, I had her help me find a new home after finding out about a work relocation.  She is very honest & detailed in her searches, assisting me in filtering out places and  not just sending me any available apartment. 

    Yet again, she she found me my second & current home, which I love. I cannot say enough about how easy she makes the search process, which is usually stressful. I have Janine to thank for my great home in a prime location, all because she takes pride in what she does and wants to ensure all her clients are happy.   “- L. Roman, Tenant

    “I am so thankful for everything Janine did for us. Looking for an apartment in the Westchester area is challenging enough, then add in a dog, modest budget, parking for two cars and I wanted to be in a safe neighborhood. I tried on my own and couldn’t get a Realtor to get back to me, was spammed on craigslist, it was a complete nightmare. I was referred to Janine through a friend and she sent us listings every day and we were able to see the properties on our schedule. We ended up choosing a beautiful apartment in Bronxville and I couldn’t be happier. We have a fenced in dog area, ample parking and it has a 24-hr gated security system. Janine found us the perfect place, met all of our criteria and we stayed within our budget. I can honestly say I couldn’t have
    done it without her.” – C. Hinrichs

    “Janine and I recently reconnected and she is as great as she was when I first met her. She worked very hard to find us a home and was great even up to the moment my husband and I had to make the difficult decision not to continue looking in Westchester. She was a true professional throughout.” – J. Winter

    “Janine is very professional, organized, and knowledgeable every time she’s assisted me in finding real estate.

I’m moving into my new place in two weeks and am so excited to have found this gem. I know I could never have found my new dream home if not for Janine. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is searching for a new place to call home. I know you will be as thrilled as I am to have found her!” – E. Frankl

She knows just the right questions to ask and is a great agent to have on your side.” – K. Pappas
