Janine Bear’s career as a Wood River Valley Realtor began in 1993, and she has since facilitated over 600 transactions, from residential and commercial real estate to land purchases, foreclosures, and investment properties. Consistently one of Sun Valley’s highest producing agents, she is recognized as a local industry leader through vast market expertise and client loyalty. Her continuing education resumé, including Harvard Extension School and Lifestyle Psychology, signifies a dedication to both professional and personal advancement. An Associate Broker, Ms. Bear has also attained notable designations including Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), and Short sale and Foreclosure Specialist (SFR).
In conjunction with Ms. Bear’s accolades and many Real Estate Professional affiliations – including serving as the President Sun Valley Board of Realtors and Blaine County Housing Authority Commissioner – she volunteers her time to many non-profits in the Valley. Aside from her endeavors, past clients attribute her success in helping them find the right property or investment to her commitment to working efficiently and focused while maintaining a high level of integrity and personal service.
When she is not working, Janine spends time with her children, grandchildren, friends, and exploring the great outdoors. Whether it is hiking, biking, riding her Harley or digging her toes into the sands during summer travels, she maintains an active lifestyle and takes advantage of all the Valley has to offer.
Janine has a keen eye for the right home for the person she is searching for. She has a great insight into the Sun Valley area; is a great negotiator and has the sense of timing in order to drive a great deal. I would highly recommend her for all your needs.
Janine is by far one of the best agents I have ever worked with — and I own a Real Estate Company in L.A.!
Janine is INCREDIBLE. I emailed her at 830pm that I was leaving town in 24 hours but wanted to see a listing. Despite the owner saying she needed 24 hours notice, Janine was able to get us in the very next morning. Long story short, we ended up buying the house. Janine negotiated an amazing deal and went out of her way to do everything that we couldn’t (we live in CA and this will be our second home) because we weren’t in town. My mom is a great realtor, so I’m tough to impress but Janine really impressed us both 🙂
Janine found my 1st home in the Wood River Valley, which she just sold for me & found me a new home. She is a wonderful person & realtor. Always willing to listen, share her knowledge & give feedback. I would use her again & will recommend her to all my family & friends looking to sell or buy a home or land!!
