After a web search, we called Jean to help us find a small house for our daughter who will be attending grad school at UofM. We could not have been more pleased with her level effort and service as our buyers representative. Jean spent the better part of a weekend taking us around to about 13 different (and appropriate) houses. Once we picked one, she gave us good advice on making our offer (there was quite a bit of competition for the house). Once our offer was accepted, she was incredibly responsive and available to answer all of our questions on contractors, lawyers, local resources, etc. She's a joy to work with and we consider her a good friend. We highly recommend her!
Jean is a great real estate agent. This was the first home that we sold and she helped us through the process. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
Jean helped us sell our home in the Water Hill neighborhood in Ann Arbor. She was terrific in every way and helped us get a great price. The process went really smoothly, and that was largely thanks to her. We couldn't recommend her more highly.
Jean helped me sell my parents' condo in Ann Arbor. I've been a practicing attorney for 30 years, have done a fair bit of real estate work, and have bought and sold homes and other real estate myself, so I have had quite a bit of experience with real estate brokers and agents. Jean is the very best residential broker I have ever worked with, hands down. I could not possibly overstate what a great experience I had working with her. Jean and her husband Jim were enormously helpful, knowledgeable, and accomplished a difficult task, namely helping me update the property physically, and then sell the property, all from a distance of 250 miles away (I live in Chicago). She made every step of the process a breeze. So I would recommend Jean unconditionally, and with great enthusiasm.
Working with Jean in the sale of my home was an extremely pleasant experience. Besides her knowledge and responsiveness which were extraordinary, she helped make some of the most difficult parts of the process much easier for me. She went above and beyond in providing me with resources and was always available to me. She combined the right amount of comfort and support that allowed me to move forward.
Our experience with Jean was unbelievable. She is more than just attuned to her profession; she is expert in it. My wife and I do not hand out high ratings on a whim. We do so with much thought given to the process. Jean and her team are open, reliable, honest, and will do the job better than any we have dealt with in the past or present for that matter. We purchased and sold three different properties in the last year and our experience with Jean was the best. We hold her in the highest regard when it comes to real estate and have come to like her on a personal level.
Jean and Jim Wedemeyer found a buyer for our house in 5 days, and they even offered over asking price! We didn't think the house would sell quickly because fall was not a good season to list a home for sale. They gave us a lot of pointers on how to make the house more presentable for sale before we listed the house. They were extremely responsive, very honest and professional. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in Ann Arbor, don't even think about hiring any other agent!
Jean is honest, hardworking and competent in the extreme. She worked patiently with us for over a year before we found our home. She clearly enjoys a great reputation with our bank and lender as both sang her praises. And she simply never missed a detail when it came to reviewing our contract and closing the deal.
Jean and her husband Jim make an excellent team. They were the best realtors/property management team I have ever met and I have bought, sold, leased or rented a property every two years for the last 20 years or so. They listen, help, and care. Simply put - A ++ rating. They helped me clean up things I could not move myself with four kids while hubby relocated to CA. They even offered to help punch nail holes and finish trim and other things. If you want the most down to earth, caring, yet professional and realistically gonna get you ever dollar you can for your home - listing with Jean is the way to go. I interviewed other more highly rated realtors in the area - all were like - you need to do this, and this and this before that...things that would have cost me thousands of more dollars and were nit picky pretentious things. I also interviewed local Dexter real estate agents who were like -you used to live in a farm field - no one will care; but I did when I moved in and I knew whomever bought my place would. Jean was the perfect balance between both. Loved the country farm girl in me; yet also city girl. Not one hassle nor complaint about her nor Jim. They hardly bothered me; if clients did not like the house, they did not like it - it's not too hard to figure out why and yet, she found us the right buyer by marketing in house. Someone looking for an acre outside of AA - close, fast enough route to work, good schools - that is what Dexter is all about and if I could have cued the deer like Chevy Chase did in Funny Farm or paid off the neighbors and mail lady - nothing would have changed - cuz that was all there and she marketed it heavily. Jean is a go getter - realistic and energetic. Her husband Jim the same - there in a heartbeat if you need them. I was envious of their marriage and partnership. A perfect team!
Jean is a consummate professional, and extremely dedicated. She kept in frequent contact with us about showings on our home, and held frequent open houses. Our home sold quickly thanks to her hard work.
Jean has been very helpful in preparing our home for sale. She has given ideas to make the home look better for selling. She plans the Open Houses for times that work around the basket ball games in Ann Arbor to attract the most people coming through the home. We can not say enough nice things about Jean.

Jean was a pleasure to work with. She kept me on track and knows her stuff. She is extremely understanding with the situation at hand and keeps things real and has the best sense of humor. When I got stressed she made me realize that everything would be o.k. I would recommend her to anybody buying or selling.
Jean was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge of the area, appraisal process, and real estate were invaluable. She worked very hard for us and we could not have done it without her!
Jean is an Ann Arbor native who knows more than anyone about AA real estate. We were looking for a very specific property and she helped us find the perfect home with everything we were looking for, at the right price! She also navigated us through the complicated short sale buying process, which is not easy to do. We also have very ridiculous schedules and she was always more than happy to accommodate us when we wanted to see houses at odd hours. Overall, Jean is fantastic at she does, and is a lovely person to work with. We would recommend her to anyone.
Jean was always there for my son and I as we bought this wonderful home. Jean went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure she was there when we were able to go look at homes, and followed through on every request, no matter how small! I highly recommend Jean Wedemeyer to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home.
From my first contact with Jean to interview her as my sales agent, she was a complete professional. She arrived at the interview prepared with specifics on the best strategy to sell my house. She had a plan, she did rigorous research to select the best sales price, she even knew the type of buyer who would be interested in my house. She took care of all the details on prepping the house for sale. And she was always very responsive and reassuring. Sure enough, within 2 days of listing the house, the buyer that she anticipated would be interested made an offer at the asking price. She managed all the details of the closing and even, personally, closed out some deliverables with me well after the closing. I cannot recommend enough contracting with Jean as your sales agent.
Jean and Jim provided the best service we ever could have hoped for in buying our new home. They were knowledgeable, helpful, and caring throughout the entire process. They even helped us settle some issues with the prior owner even after the sale was completed. I could not recommend them more highly!
Jean and Jim were absolutely wonderful to work with when finding a home in Ann Arbor. They were patient, communicative, thorough, kind and very professional. We learned new things every step of the way. I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy/sell in the area.
Your team was very good at making sure that I understood each step of the process in buying a home. I always felt comfortable asking questions and I knew you would all give me very honest answers.
In my book there is no comparison! I don't have enough good adjectives to describe how confident I am recommending Jean and Jim. Together they helped me navigate selling and buying in the same week. Simple suggestions helped my house sell to the second person who saw it at $20k over list price.
The Jean team did a spectacular job. If there was something that needed completion, Jean had either already started the process or would quickly handle it without issue. The entire process was simple and painless. There was never a step I didn't know what was going on, Jean and the team would always keep me up to date.
Jean and Jim are the best. That's it. No caveats or hesitations. My wife and I made the move from Chicago to Ann Arbor and after years of dealing with subpar realtors, we were blown away by the amazing service from Jim and Jean; truly one of a kind. They genuinely care, are incredibly knowledgeable and go above and beyond to ensure you not only find the right house, but do so in a way that makes you comfortable. We had to essentially buy our house without seeing it, but with Jim leading the way we never doubted it for a minute. There should not be a process for looking for realtors if you are in the Ann Arbor market. Just call Jim and Jean and everything else will be taken care of.
Jean Wedemeyer, along with her husband & real estate partner Jim, were referred to me as I am new in town. It was great to tour homes with Jean because she sees everything, both good and bad. She knows the value of upgrades, good windows, etc, and how to access all the mechanics. She could help me estimate costs of work I'd need to do to help me know the total cost of a home to me. If one of them wasn't available for a viewing, inspection, etc, they had a team member names Scott, who was also very helpful. It is a tough time to be a house buyer and Jean helped me understand how to strengthen my offer to be more competive. I loved Jean's enthusiam when I won a contract. Then, Jim teamed with me, mostly, to help me navigate all the complexities of the home inspection and negotiations, which went very smoothly. Then, Jean was very helpful going through all the nuances of the final contracts, and now I am a very happy homeowner! And their support continues as they have provided referrals of all the trades people I need. They are all so busy these days, but when I mention Jean & Jim, I get call backs and great service. I couldn't be happier with Team Jean!
We have worked with Jean Wedemeyer to purchase homes twice and sell once. She is fantastic. Jean Wedemeyer combines three important traits in her service. First, she truly cares about people. She is a true advocate for her clients and works hard for them. Second, she has deep expertise gained through experience. Her insights and recommendations are extremely valuable. Third, she manages the details of a complex process exceptionally well. She has a great team (including her husband Jim) and great network of people she can call on to get things done. When it comes to buying and selling a home, that can be the difference between a dream come true and a nightmare. Jean is absolutely a five star realtor.
Jean was incredible to work with. This was our first house, and she and Jim were so patient, responsive, and knowledgeable - they made it seem easy! They worked with our schedules, provided a lot of information, always responded quickly, and we always felt like we were in good hands.
Jean was incredible at understanding how to price my aunt's home on the west side of Ann Arbor. She made her charts, maps, graphs and research easy to understand. Jean always came fully prepared for every meeting. I loved her work ethic, common sense, preparation, thoughtfulness and sense of humor. The asset of a fabulously helpful husband and partner was a real bonus as well. The experience of working with Jean and Jim was so positive that I had a twinge of sadness when we closed on the house. If you choose The Jean Team to buy or sell a house, you will not be disappointed!
Jean and Jim Wedemeyer helped us sell my father's house. They found the perfect buyer for the house. Their expertise and experience became even clearer when we ran into title problems. They helped us navigate the whole process as smoothly as possible, and offered excellent advice whenever we had questions. We would happily work with Jean and Jim again.
We've bought two houses and sold one with the help of Jean and Jim Wedemeyer, and I can't think of anything I would have changed about the how it all went. They're honest, knowledgeable, and we were especially appreciative of how responsive they were at critical times during the sale/purchases. We'll absolutely be using Jean for any future real estate transactions in the area!
We were so fortunate to have had Jean as our realtor. She provided sound advice on how to price our home, did a superb job of marketing it, and was available at each step of the process to offer invaluable guidance - even on Mother's Day! Our house sold to the first people who walked through, for the full asking price. What's more, they appreciated a house that we had loved, making it easier to part with it. Since we were relocating out of state, she even stood in for us as closing! She is a well-informed, conscientious professional who is dedicated to her work.We were so fortunate to have had Jean as our realtor.

I HIGHLY recommend Jean Wedemeyer! She made a very stressful situation (the sale of my recently deceased mother's house) easier than I could have imagined. Her extensive knowledge of Ann Arbor and the local real estate market was key in getting the right price for the house. She set expectations appropriately, and we were right on target with the offers that we got. She is responsive, has a great sense of humor, and always maintained her professionalism. Very simply put, she was a pleasure to work with, and I recommend her without hesitation!!
My family couldn't have asked for a better agent to help us sell our home. Jean and her husband Jim are the consummate professionals and they are very patient and are great at explaining the process which can be confusing and tiring. We found them extremely trustworthy and so easy to work with. They were spot on in pricing the home and in guiding us through. As a result we sold our home in a few weeks. They really went the extra mile and I highly recommend them to be your agent!
Jean and Jim are fantastic real estate agents! They have helped us with both buying and selling our home and we couldn’t be more satisfied with the results. They are exactly what you would want in your real estate agent: honest, responsive, and market savvy. I would highly recommend them!!
We worked with Jean Wedemeyer, and although our reason to sell was unplanned, Jean helped us understand the market and provided ample support for her recommended list price. We listed in November, and as she predicted activity was slow through the holidays. We regrouped early this year, had 12-15 showings and got a reasonable offer. As a New Mexico Broker, I appreciated Jean's proactive approach as she assisted us doing business from out of state. I highly recommend Jean, and would definitely give her our business again if the occasion presents itself.
