I just wanted to express my thanks in working with you in order to complete the successful sale of the Southern Belle home, of which I was the Trustee. It's been a pleasure working with a professional such as you. The things I appreciated most were you keeping me apprised of any changes in the real estate market conditions and staying in touch with me on a regular basis. This enabled us to complete a successful transaction in a timely manner. Once again, I appreciate your true professionalism and would highly recommend you to anyone in the process of buying or selling a home in the future. Many thanks,
Jeff Dupree, Trustee
My husband and I just finished our fourth adventure with Janet, and she has come through for us with flying colors. We were looking for something in a very specific area and also a very specific price range. Doing some initial legwork online and physically ourselves didn't leave us with much hope. So, once again we sought Janet's advice to see if we had in mind was even a real possibility. Using her gut instinct, brilliance, and creativity she did it for us again. We both thought this dream of ours could never become a realty. I truly did not think this would happen. Without Janet's expertise, I am quite sure it wouldn't have. Thanks to her we have exactly what we wanted. Thank you, Janet!
When the owners of the villa we'd rented for over six years informed us that they would be selling, I was devastated. After major surgery, there wouldn't be time or stamina for house-hunting. Originally, two other realtors tried helping me until I was referred to Janet Wilkens, who immediately began working on finding a home in our price range. I'm not sure she realized what a monumental task this would be. As a single mom with teen girls, no family in this area and living on a modest income, finances as well as location, were major challenges. Two other local realtors had already given up on me, because as one said, "I just don't have this kind of time...". Unfortunately,complications after surgery only compounded our house hunting woes. Janet to the rescue! She came along side of me on all fronts and worked tirelessly to locate reasonably priced rentals in decent neighborhoods. When we eventually decided that buying was more practical, Janet immediately switched gears and we began our search for a purchase. Time and time again we had to recover from disappointments in an increasingly competitive market, often ready to give up, wondering what to do and where to go. Janet never deserted us and always found a way to restore my hope or make me smile. She spent an exorbitant amount of time helping us--9-5, after hours, holidays, even while on vacation. After several months on this unpredictable road to home ownership, we finally arrived at destination closing on 3/31/16. Janet's expertise, knowledge, tenacity and compassion were the fuel in our success wagon. Along our real estate journey, Janet has become our friend; though refusing to divulge where she hides her invisible red cape, I know her super powers are real. Janet, from the depths of our hearts, thank you! May God continue to bless you and your invaluable business in our community.

Little did we know what a gem Janet was going to turn out to be! Not being all that familiar with FL real estate ourselves, she was a fountain of no-nonsense information. Janet really knows her stuff with construction, real estate and the buying and selling process. We did both through her in record time. Thank you, Janet, for a great experience. Because of you we are happily sitting in our forever home.

Dearest Janet, We would like you to know how much we appreciate all you did for us. When I told you I needed to see as many homes as possible in 2 days,WOW did you ever come thru! We saw about 15 homes in those 2 days. My head was rattled but you kept me together! God bless you! You always kept me updated and sometimes you called to just check in. We bought our retirement home in Spring Hill. We absolutely love it. Thanks to Janet, I feel we will be friends for a long time!
Joanne and I appreciate your help in purchasing our new home. We feel you are a true professional, honest in your presentations, sincere in you property searches, and very helpful in taking care of all the details. I would be happy for you to represent me in any real estate transactions that will occur in the future.
Thank you so much for all the hard work it took to find our dream home
Sincerely, Tim and Joanne
Thank you for the efficient and speedy way you handled the sale of my house in Glen Lakes. Although I never met you, I feel as though I've made a new friend. I could tell in our phone conversations that you had my best interests at heart and worked quickly to find a buyer who was just right for my home. Your friendliness and the way you kept me informed about the way things were going impressed me. I really appreciate the promptness of the finalizing and your willingness to help make details clear to me. May God bless you with good health, success and prosperity in the future. It was a joy to work with you, my friend!
Sincerely, Mona FayeLewis
Janet, My husband and I would like to extend our heart felt thanks to you for selling our home in Glen Lakes. We had previously listed the property without success. You provided us the necessary information to appropriately price our home and the home sold in a record 17-day period. We were thrilled with your results and would highly recommend your services to our friends. Thanks again so very much for your attention to detail and immediate success in selling our home. Kindest regards,
Kevin & Natalie Goff
I just want to send a short note to thank you for your assistance in my purchasing the Lacey Street home.
As you are aware, Gary and I had significant problems in finding a "qualified" real estate agent. When we
found you, you made everything so easy..........you were very prepared.........you went way out of your way
to assist us, even after the property was purchased. Things could not have gone smoother.
Thank you for everything you have done.
I just wanted to send you a quick thank you note for all of your help with the purchase of my new home. You were a pleasure to work with and I hope to keep in touch with you. You have helped to make my dreams come true. Not only did you do your job well, but you went above and beyond to ensure that my purchase went well. I will forever be grateful to have met you and cannot thank you enough. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I encounter who is purchasing or selling a home. Thank you again.
We would like to share our wonderful experience with Janet Wilkens of White Diamond Realty. We went to Spring Hill in January looking for a retirement home. We were very fortunate to be guided to this wonderful lady. She was so on top of all our needs and wants during our visit. We found a short sale and closed in August. During our wait for short sale approval she kept us updated regularly on the status. She was so helpful in providing us with contacts, community information, etc., before the closing and after. We are so grateful for all the assistance she has provided us and would definitely recomment her and use her again for any future real estate needs. We feel that we have found our first friend in Spring Hill and a lasting one as well.

Janet, when we contacted you in 2011 you were very receptive to our needs. We were looking for a January rental with a pool within 5 miles from where my parents lived. After numerous conversations and e-mails over a 9-month period you found us a wonderful condo that perfectly met all our requirements. We feel that you worked extremely hard and went above and beyond what most agents would have done. Your ongoing communication with us kept our hopes up. We fully enjoyed our stay. Thanks again for all of your effort and dedication to satisfy all of our needs.

Janet has been a good friend of mine for many years so when I needed to find a home of my own, I turned to her for help. She understood my circumstances and seemed to know exactly what would suit my needs. We found the perfect home in a short period of time but previously scheduled holiday visits for both of us with out-of-state family made it necessary for us to handle all negotiations, inspections, contracts and arrangements for closing via e-mail and phone. I returned home and within four days closed on the property and was comfortably moved into my new home. I could not have done this without her caring and tireless effort. Thank you, Janet, for your help and friendship.
I want to say what an exceptional Real Estate Person Janet Wilkens is. She asked me to describe what I was looking for and after just a couple of tweaks, we hit the jackpot and found the perfect home for us without having
to build it. I am still amazed it happened so quickly especially since we were out of state. She is a prime example of what Realtors ought to be.
Thank you so much.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with you.
