I have been a licensed Real Estate Agent/Broker for 17 years. I am a native Californian and have been a Southern California resident for 25 years. I have lived in the Temecula Valley for 20 years and love it here. I originally obtained my Real Estate License in 1990. I received my California Real Estate Broker's license in 2001. I started my own company, Southwest Real Estate Inc., in 2004.
I have personal experience in investing in homes "fixers", and turning them into profitable investments. I have helped many first time buyers and investors purchase property, fix it up and sell it for profit.
If you are considering buying or selling a home or would just like to have additional information about real estate in Riverside County call or e-mail me with your individual needs.
If you need advice about who to hire to fix up your home or investment property go to my "Local Partners" area of mywebsite. I have listed all of my best contacts that I hire to turn neglected homes into quickly renovated profitable properties.
Personally, I am married and I have two boys, one is currently a sophomore attending Great Oak High School and one just entering college at Mt. San Jacinto. I can attest to the great quality of the public school system here in the Temecula valley.
I love animals and have a German Shepherd named Max. I also have three cats.
My husband, Gerald Rauch, is a Real Estate Developer, Builder and has a class A Engineering License. He has recently obtained his California Real Estate Broker's License and has experience in Commercial Lending as well.
Jane is amazing! After using a different agent for over 1 year who couldn't seem to close the deal for us, Jane came in and saved the day. Prior to using Jane we had many short sale deals fall through and after a year of that we were ready to give up. Jane made us feel comfortable with her skills and within a matter of weeks we had written the offer on our first home and her strategy for writing a clean no fuss offer made the deal a reality. She was able to craft a solid FHA funded loan offer, for a standard sale, to a seller who was an investor and they loved it which is rare. No doubt this lady can write an attractive offer for you. Jane was so great about making sure all the details after the seller had accepted the offer were not overlooked and everything just moved super smooth. Her cooperation with our lender, escrow and the sellers agent were second to none and all of them commented on how much they enjoyed working with her ( This is huge and helps really motivate all parties to move quickly). Jane even went out of her way to meet our inspector and garage door repairman several times without us since we were relocating to make sure we could satisfy our lender. If your looking for a professional that can handle whatever you throw her way, then Jane is the Realtor for you. Don't even bother to look at anyone else. We felt 100% confident that she would represent our wishes and truly trusted her opinions. We HIGHLY recommend her! " D.Rowley - September 21, 2010
If you are looking for a real estate agent who will sell your home or find the perfect one for you to purchase, look no further than Jane Grant of Southwest Real Estate. I met Jane through one of the realtor web sites and had a feeling she would be a good agent by the quality and knowledge contained in her posts and in my email correspondence with her. We eventually made arrangements to meet and look at several houses. After just a few conversations, Jane immediately knew what type of house I was looking for. Narrowing down the choices was important since this was a long-distance move and I only had a couple of days at a time when I would be in the area to look at houses. On numerous occasions when I wanted to see a house but could not make the trip, Jane would go to the house, video camera in hand and with great detailed narration, film the house and post it online for me to view. This was above and beyond my expectations of what most other realtors would do for a client. In all, we looked for more months than I had planned, but not once did I feel pressured or rushed by Jane. She was always just as patient as that first day, and quick to greet me and my family with a smile. Jane did not pressure me, rush me or relent in sending emails and prospective listings. When I had all but given up hope in finding the ideal house, Jane, hopeful as ever, phoned me one day saying she had found a "must see" and emailed me video footage. I loved the house. I made arrangements to view it in person and, little did I know, it turned out to be the one. Jane will sell your house or find you a new home no matter how long it takes--she is determined to make you happy. She is personable and extremely knowledgeable about her business. I cannot recommend Jane enough, and I hope that you will do yourself a favor and become one of Jane's clients! Tracey St. Julien Winchester, CA "

The GREASEST Home Buying experience a first time home buyer could possibly ask for. Extremely capable, prepared, professional, courteous , and an absolute joy to work with. Always a step ahead, planning and making all necessary arrangements to make the experience have smooth transitions. Outstanding communication, always keeping me posted and providing me with all the necessary information, if she didn't have the answer she would most definitely find out and get right back to me. I would and DO strongly recommend Southwest Real Estate to all friends, family, and home buyers. Make the home buying experience an easier and more enjoyable one buy choosing Southwest Real Estate!

Jane did a outstanding job on both locating and closing our house. She was very attentive to our needs, and communicated much better than the person that was selling our house. Most of the time knew more that that realtor. We would highly recommend Southwest Real Estate " Frank Litchenberber Wed Aug 25, 2010
Kimberely Memieblia - Jane, You Rock, Thanks for the buyer and taking such good care of them!!!
Beni Tovar - Thank you for the referral and I feel you provide excellent service to your clients.
Michael Logue - "Jane Grant is an exceptional real estate agent. I am in the military and Jane helped me purchase my first house. Jane listened to what I was looking for and found me the perfect house. It was a short sale but Jane explained the entire process before, during, and after the sale and made it simple. She made the entire process so easy that I wonder why people often complain about buying a short sale property or using a real estate agent. If I am ever to buy another house or sell the one I am in, I will ask Jane first. She has my highest recommendation."
