About Me

Janice began her career as a Realtor in early 2015.  Her interest in real estate began earlier in her career when she was an Office Manager and transaction processor for two top producing agents in Northern Virginia.  Since then, Janice has been Rookie of the Year and Top Producer in her full-time career. She has lived up and down the East coast, California, and Europe both as an Army officer’s wife and corporate/business professional.  Each move required the purchase and/or sale of personal homes utilizing Realtors and relocation companies.  These experiences have given her insight and sensitivity to the home selling and buying process and has led her to pursue a real estate career.  

Her successful approach to real estate begins with a personal consultation (whether selling or buying a home) to determine your specific needs and preferences.  From that first consultation to moving you on to your next adventure and finding you your dream home, Janice creates a positive environment with a “can-do” attitude that provides a smooth transaction for her clients.  Her care and attention does not end there, she believes in cultivating long-lasting relationships well beyond the closing date.

Janice holds a BS degree in Business and Project Management from University of Phoenix and is an Accredited Buyer Representative and Military Relocation Specialist.  She has over 20 years’ experience in corporate executive administration, non-profit resource development, and direct sales management.  Areas of expertise from this adventurous career that transfer well to her real estate career are: customer service excellence-advisor and trainer, marketing, project and organizational management, customer and resource development and community engagement and volunteerism. 

Outside of her real estate career, Janice enjoys time with her immediate family which includes her daughters, their hubbies, several grandchildren, and even more “grand-doggies!”  She enjoys travel, entertaining, interior design, staying fit, and being involved in her community.

So, when you are considering buying or selling a home, “…Just ask Janice!”  She will make your dream happen.    


Customer Ratings

Janice Mae Johnston has been rated by 15 customers


“Janice Johnston is a consummate sales professional. I was faced with a very slow market in terms of completing sales of properties in my price range and type. But Janice, due to her very strong knowledge and experience in this market, was able to craft an overall marketing and sales strategy, tailored to the market conditions - and then persevere regardless of unexpected changes in the market - and bring the enterprise to a successful conclusion. She was very timely in her ongoing analyses and made price reduction recommendations and other suggestions about the property that were very prudent. If I had any other properties in Locust Grove, VA or surrounding areas, I would certainly want Janice to be my agent!”
Warner D Stanley, Burke, VA (Seller)

“Anyone looking to buy a house can learn alot from Janice Johnston because she has the patience and is willing to explain all questions about the home buying process especially to the first time home buyer. Janice forms a special relationship with her customers and that is most important. Janice did an outstanding job in working with me for severals years and was very encouraging about knowing that what I was looking for was out there somewhere. Without her diligence I may have actually missed out on the house that I did eventually purchase. She has a lot of knowledge and was supportive throughout the whole process. I would recommend her to anyone who was searching for a new home.”

“Finding a real estate agent online can be frustrating. We felt very lucky to have selected Janice as our agent and would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home in this area. Her local knowledge of Lake of the Woods, Locust Grove, was excellent. She was very generous with her time and always worked with us on our schedule. She guided us through all phases of the purchasing of our retirement home with ease and confidence. Janice listened to our likes and dislikes, our "must have" bucket list, with our price point considerations. This being one of the most expensive and most important purchases we have made in our lives and we did feel the choice we made needed to be a great match for us. We are thankful she patiently showed us many homes until one felt just right. ”

“ My wife Diane had talked with her several times on the phone regarding listings in Lake of the Woods. She was very impressed. Then we went to Lake of the Woods in person and Janice gave us a tour of the entire community and showed us houses we were interested in. She did a wonderful job. Janice has incredibly high business and ethical standards. It was a pleasure to work with her on our purchase. Now we look forward to being one of her neighbors. Janice is a highly knowledgeable and very professional real estate agent. I don’t know of one with whom I’ve had any interactions that even came close to her performance. She really cares about her clients and advocates for them. Just a fantastic person. To put it very simply, Janice is the greatest. ”
Diane and Larry, state college, Pennsylvania (Buyer)
“I met Janice Johnston when I attended one of her open houses. She was very pleasant and our personalities clicked. She was very helpful and caring during my home search without being pushy. Buying a home in the hot Fredericksburg real estate market was stressful for me and it took several months for me to find my perfect home. Throughout my search Janice was patient and always willing to answer questions and she also previewed several homes in other subdivisions to aid in my search. She was positive, patient and kind which had a calming effect on me. I highly recommend Janice Johnston of Century 21 Redwood Realty. ”
V Miller, Fredericksburg (Buyer)
