A Valued and Trusted Friend!
We have had the privilege of calling “Jan the Man” our friend for many years. Jan is a respected person of so many in his profession, due to his truthfulness during negotiations with clients and the honesty of his word. What has impressed us the most about Jan is his belief that client relationships do not end at closing, but friendship relationships with knowing Jan follow a lifetime continuum. Our home selling/building process, as well other family and friends experiences too, was the easiest because of Jan leading the way as our/their realtor. “Jan the Man” should always be your go to Realtor - he is simply the best!

Consistently Above and Beyond
Jan was amazingly helpful, he consistently went above and beyond in the service he provided. We would completely recommend him as a Realtor without reservation. He treated us like we were his only clients, every call and email returned promptly, every question answered almost before we could ask it. If you need a Realtor, look no further.

"Jan the Man" has become our favorite real estate agent!
My husband and I have moved many times over our years together and consequently have bought and sold many properties all over the State of Texas. Every situation was a bit different and the procedures were not always easy to accomplish. However, once we made contact with Jan when selling a home and purchasing another in Houston, this event became less stressful and even fun. This was all because Jan is personally interested in every one of his clients and does his very best to handle everything with wisdom and gentlemanly ease resulting in an efficient completion. Our most recent purchase was finalized in Kerrville, Texas. We had incurred many changes in our lives over the years, and this home had to be convenient to deal with some on-going health issues. Jan worked with us and our Realtor in Kerrville to make sure all of the details were fulfilled, and was able to sell our home in Houston which made the transition possible. He is a special Realtor and has been a very special friend to us over the years.

Always has a positive attitude.
We just love Jan! He has helped me sell/find 3 houses. We feel like he is a part of the family. :) He always has a positive attitude and has soooo much patience!
Troy & Michelle Walding

A young man and his wife who are good friends and past clients (Jan sold their previous home and sold them the current very nice home they are living in) told his Mom and Dad that when they got ready to buy a home to not to bother even thinking about any Realtor to assist them, because he had the man, and guess what it was “Jan the Man”. These folks were a true pleasure to work with from day one. They knew exactly what they wanted and when they found it, they did not hesitate in making a decision. With most transactions there are ups and downs, but things have a great way of working out for the best and we are closing on this great home in just a few days!

And, the great part, because they are such a HOOT to work with we are going to do it again, because I am going to be listing their previous home within a few weeks.

I have been in Real Estate for almost 20 years and it is so satisfying to work with such fine and classy individuals!

Jan the man " Me and my Husband have bought and sold our previous house quick with Jan. He has always been very professional and knowledgeable about the market and the process. He goes above and beyond being a real estate agent. I would recommend him to anyone interested in selling their home or in buying a new one. With our experience we very happy and blessed with the job he did to us. Catherine Monzon
Thank you Jan!
I cannot say "Thank you" enough to Jan Gillespie for helping my husband and I find a home here in Texas. Our daughter encouraged us to contact Jan as he had helped with the purchase of her first home. Even though my husband and I knew we wanted to purchase a home in the Magnolia area, Jan was as willing as ever to help us look at properties an hour away from his office area in Katy! I so appreciated his willingness to drive us to see several different homes in the Magnolia and Tomball areas. We came up this way more than once! As my husband is from a building background having spent many years both building and inspecting homes, I know that we had our moments of feeling very particular about the quality of home we were looking for. Jan hung in there and kept pursuing the right home along with us. Always encouraging and optimistic that we'd find the right place. Jan was very personable and caring. Very professional about returning our phone calls and keeping us informed as we went through the purchasing process. Jan was there to help negotiate and support. We were so happy when our closing day finally arrived! Thank you again for helping us get through it all! Your sincere kindness will not be forgotten.

Mom Approved!
I loved working with Jan. As a single mom and first time home buyer, I had a wonderful and very easy experience. I trusted his decisions and recommendations and he always went out of his way to accommodate my schedule. I definitely will refer anyone I know looking for a home to him. Thank you Jan!

Genuinely impressed
We were genuinely impressed with Jan. His professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market impressed us and made the move to Katy a smooth transition. Our entire family appreciated the hard work and patience he showed us. Jan is truly the "Man".

A pleasant and memorable experience
Hello we are the Gonzales Family. My name is Joe; my wife is Maribel and we have 3 children Autumn, Bailey and Travis. On behalf of my family and me we want to express our thanks to Jan for the person he is.

We moved 3 times in the past 8 years and let me tell you, Jan made our moves to and from Houston and back to Houston from San Antonio smooth and painless as possible. We have been very pleased with Jan. He is not only a great realtor, but a great FRIEND with the passion and drive to help you buy or sell your home. Once again, Jan thank you for the person you are.

Nothing but perfection from Jan
We had such a pleasant experience working with Jan. When he says you become family, he truly means it! Our quest to buy our first home was an interesting one as my husband Zach works offshore & I was the main searcher for a home. Jan is the hardest worker I know & would give 100% of his attention to us when searching for our perfect home. I have recommended Jan to a friend whom successfully bought a home right down the street. I will continue to recommend Jan and look forward to working with him again. Thank you for the amazing buying experience and continued friendship!
Diane & Zach White
Realizing What We Had
Thanks again for all your help. Since working with local agent in Austin, our admiration and respect for you has grown that much more. You da' man! Or should I say Jan da' Man! Anyhow, thanks again for your friendship and all of your hard work and personalized effort. Almost there! Making an offer on a smaller home in Bastrop, hopefully we find something soon.
Bob & Susan Edwards
He literally gave us all the advice and resources necessary to feel comfortable choosing and purchasing our first home.
The way we met Jan "The Man" Gillespie was thru a friend at work, who boasted that he was the best realtor. My friend and his family had been working with him for years. Jan "The Man" Gillespie came to the rescue when I told him how dissatisfied my wife and I were with the realtor we had been working with. From the beginning he was up front with letting us know all our options. He gave us all the time necessary in order to make the best decision. Once we decided what exactly we wanted, he was there for every question or concern we had.

Jan "The Man" assisted us with all the aspects of purchasing a home which included choosing the best home for us, loan process, walk thorough, home inspection, and closing. We know he did more for us than any ordinary realtor would do. What we always appreciated from the beginning to the present was his way of doing things the right way. He literally gave us all the advice and resources necessary to feel comfortable choosing and purchasing our first home. We thank Jan "The Man" Gillespie and his team for making this a great experience for us!
Cesar & Sandra Duran
Jan was a pleasant surprise.
One of the things I dreaded most about selling my previous home and purchasing a new one was paying a realtor for doing nothing more than listing my home on the MLS and waiting for something to happen. Jan was a pleasant surprise. He "invested" much time and money helping me sell my home. He was up to speed with the latest technologies, he was creative in his thinking, and aggressive with his approach. I feel he left no stone unturned to improve my chances finding the right buyer. I also know for a fact that his personal profits were reduced because of the extra things he did along the way. When it came to finding our dream home, all I can say is that Jan has a servant's heart. He was always cheerful and eager to make himself available. I recommend all my family and friends to Jan and will use him again when the day comes that I make another move.

When we first met Jan, he made a comment about his goal of not only being our Realtor, but our friend!"
Jan Gillespie who to us we know as "Jan the Man" assisted us in selling our existing home in Katy and buying another home. When we first met Jan, he made a comment about his goal of not only being our Realtor, but our friend!
During the selling process of our home, Jan got to know our family! One evening, my son David wanted a hug from Jan before he got in his car. David at the time was holding a "Jan the Man" card. Jan gave David and Andrew a hug and left for the evening.

As their Dad, I usually lay down with the boys in their room to get them to sleep. David was holding Jan's business card (instead of his Teddy Bear) in his arms. When I thought he was asleep I took the card out of his hand to put away. He immediately awakened and informed me that "It's my Jan the Man Card!!!" Telling this to Jan, brought laughter and a tear to his eye!
Mr. Smith
Jan quickly sold our home! He was so kind and patient with our family as he helped us get our home ready for sell. His personal warmth is what we remember the most. He put together the right research for our market, offering our home at the right price to sell. The first family to make an offer bought our home. Jan was right on the money! Alberto Hernandez
The best Realtor in Houston
My wife and I have used Jan The Man for ALL three of our Katy, TX homes through the years. Once you've worked with him you'll begin to see why he's "The Man". His Honesty, integrity, and straight forward approach to handling business are just a few things that set him apart from the rest of the crowd. The third party inspectors, photographers, finance people, and closing officers always comment that we are working with the best Realtor in Houston, Jan the Man! He's not just our Realtor, he's a good friend too!
Bryan & Debbie Echols
Very happy and proud to recommend him
We have enjoyed working with Jan Gillespie. From the start Jan provided a professional atmosphere we felt comfortable with in making the biggest purchase we have ever made. Jan is patient, hard-working, client oriented, prompt and always available to answer a question or show you a home. We are pleased with the service provided by Jan and are very happy and proud to recommend him highly for your real estate needs.
Jim & Jennifer Parker
Keep it up 'Jan the Man'
Jan the Man” was the first friend I had in Texas moving from Minnesota six years ago. Jan not only helped us buy our first house, Jan has done it for our family twice. Jan still calls and keeps in touch almost monthly. Our family gets Holiday and Birthday cards every year on the clock. What a great touch that most Realtors won’t even think about. Jan is just overall a great friend to have as a Realtor or business partner.
Ken & Kerry McCullum
My family owes a lot to Jan
Jan is the best Realtor and a very good man. He has sold two houses for us. He is very helpful and informative; Very patient and understanding. Jan always answered all of our questions. He is a very hard worker and is always on the go. My family owes a lot to Jan. If anyone we know needs to sell or buy a house – Jan is the Man!

Thanks SO MUCH!
Bobby & Jessica Rios
Everything finalized without a hitch
Jan has sold two houses for us very quickly and at a good price. He stayed on top of the negotiations and paperwork so that everything finalized without a hitch. “Jan the Man” will always be our choice when making a real estate transaction.
James & Mary Patterson
His Expertise is Unrivaled
We have had the pleasure of working with Jan for over 10 years. His expertise in helping his clients is unrivaled, however, it is his personality that will bowl you over. He is relentlessly hardworking as well as funny. We work with many realtors but are always amazed by the effort Jan puts forth on behalf of his clients. There are only a few realtors that are as dedicated to making sure the real estate transaction goes smoothly for all parties. Jan Gillespie ranks up there with the very best.
Becky & Randy Longacre
We couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor and friend
Jan consistently went out of his way to find for us the perfect home. He put up with us for over a year constantly changing our search criteria and home area. Never once did he get frustrated or give up on us! We couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor and friend.
Clinton & Deanna Kennedy
He gave us his undivided attention
Jan is professional, courteous and friendly! He gave us his undivided attention each and every time we needed him and was very flexible in scheduling our showings.
I refer all my friends to Jan because I am confident they will receive the same great, personal service my family and I have gotten from the “Jan the Man” Team!!
Joe & Tracy Heiliger
Knowledge and Professionalism
From the first moment I spoke with Jan, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. I have worked with many Realtors over the course of the last 20 years and I will say without question that he is the one of the best, not only as a professional but as a kind and caring person. He is always there for his clients not only to answer questions but to be a voice of reason. His ability to work through a difficult negotiation and obtain top dollar for his seller’s while being an absolute hammer for the lowest price for his buyers is the thing that stands out the most to me. Very simply: knowledgeable, hardworking, competent, caring, great negotiator, available when needed, trustworthy and fun = Jan “The Man” Gillespie.
Colette Horton
Sold our previous house in two weeks!
Jan sold our previous house in two weeks! It was so great. He also sold us the house we are in now. We are really enjoying it. It was wonderful to work with Jan. We would highly recommend him!
Charles & Sandra Caldwell
Never gave up on us
We greatly appreciated Jan’s patience as we navigated our first home purchase as a married couple. We spent nearly a year looking for our ideal home and changed our minds several times along the way. Jan never gave up on us and we are absolutely thrilled with our new home! The wait was well worth it.

Thank You,
George & Shannon Butkus

I had so much fun working with you
Dear Jan!
I can't thank you enough for all the hard work you did to help sell 21215 park Wick. I had so much fun working with you. Even though the house is sold and I'm starting to live my dream up in Colorado, I want you to know you and Sally are always welcomed to visit. You have a special way with people. Your parting gift is very appreciated. It was great to have on the long drive. Thank you again for everything. Keep in touch!
Ginny Miller
Very diligent and professional
We were moving out of state and in spite of available choices among real estate agents, we selected Jan Gillespie as our real estate agent to help sell our home in Pearland. Jan was very diligent and professional and kept us up to date on every step of the selling process. We were very happy with Jan's service from the beginning till the end when home got sold. We would recommend Jan to our friends for their real estate needs without any hesitation.
Mahendra & Prabha Maru
Honest, Passionate & Professional
We really enjoyed working with Jan. He is honest, passionate and professional. We searched for a home together for a couple of months and his advice really helped us to find a home that we loved. Jan dedicated his time to us and accommodated our requests at all times. His advice is always honest and professional. He goes above and beyond his responsibilities to meet his customer needs. We have worked with a couple of agents in the past and Jan really made a difference.
Mahmood & Vida
Jan IS the man!!
"Jan the Man” is a fantastic Realtor! We were very happy and satisfied to be represented by Mr. Gillespie. After 6 months of listing our home with a previous Realtor, and receiving no offers, Jan had our home sold within 60 days. We have lived in 6 states and dealt with many Realtors. Jan Gillespie is the best by far! He is a man of his word. His knowledge of the market, his integrity and passion for the Real Estate business made our experience pleasurable. His follow up and constant communication set him apart from others. A true professional. When it comes to Real Estate Jan IS the Man!!
Dan & Pam Triscritti
I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am you represented my mother as her realtor.
At times she and my sister can be more than a hand full. In my opinion you went above and beyond your job description with your patience, understanding, perseverance, honesty, generosity and most of all integrity. It seems in these times all these qualities can be difficult to find in a person and this old Eagle scout greatly appreciates it when someone possesses them. To  my friends, family members and business associates you will be highly recommended. Thank you and may God bless you.
