Janis is awesome!
Janis is very honest and follows the laws in Texas. She keeps up to date with the laws as they change. Janis sincerely wants what is best for her clients. At times when I wanted to give up, Janis was quick to encourage me to stay afloat and why I needed to when I was stressed to the max at times. I’d definitely recommend her!!
