We sold our MI home today. So many wonderful memories were made in it. May the new owners be as blessed and as lucky. I really want to say thank you to Jeanine Bartholomay and her husband Bob for making this happen. They helped us fix up the house after 5 years of renters & us abroad the entire time. Did I mention they pulled off the impossible--full asking price! If anyone needs a realtor in MI, I cannot recommend Jeanine and Bob enough.

We heartily endorse Bob and Jeanine Bartholomay as real
estate agents. Most of our experience has been with
Jeanine who is a wonderful agent! She helped us acquire
three properties and is a dream to work with. She is
service-oriented and quick to schedule meetings and show
houses. She is punctual, professional, and very thorough;
she turns around paperwork extremely quickly and is ready to
explain everything in the paperwork. She is very good at
communication, which was extremely helpful: any questions we
had received almost instant answers, and if she did not know
the answer she tracked it very quickly and responded as soon
as she could. She is willing to go the extra mile for her
clients and makes extra phone calls to other agents and
Bob Bartholomay has also been extremely helpful,
keeping us informed about properties that might interest us,
showing us houses, helping calculate the potential or rental
properties, and in one case, finding us a great tenant. It
has been extremely pleasant to do business with the
Bartholomays. We recommend them to anyone wanting to buy any
kind of property. They make the whole process very smooth,
painless, and easy.

My husband and I would recommend Jeanine Bartholomay
unreservedly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We
have moved numerous times over the years and worked with
realtors all around the U.S.. Jeanine has been the best of
all of them. Most recently, she helped my mother find a home
near our family after we relocated to Ann Arbor. My mother
flew in from overseas for a few days of pressured
house-hunting and Jeanine went out of her way to be
available and welcoming. She was knowledegeable,
well-prepared, and best of all, made sure she understood our
needs as we considered various options. Jeanine was
unfailingly efficient, reliable, and personable. When a few
stressful moments and unforeseen glitches arose in the
process of closing on a home, she remained calm and
clear-headed. Her experience and professionalism really made
a difference and we felt we could entrust our closest family
members to her care with confidence. We would like all our
friends and family to experience Jeanine's services since we
know so well how much a good agent makes a difference in the
challenging process of selling or buying a home.
Paul and Joanne Beckman
the last few years, Jeanine Bartholomay assisted me with the
purchase of two homes and the sale of one home in the Ann
Arbor area. In all cases, Jeanine worked very hard to meet
my personal needs. While purchasing my homes, Jeanine was
very respectful of my needs, desires and limited time, and
she only showed me homes that fit my profile and price
range. At times I felt I was her only client due to the time
and personal attentiveness I received. During the closing of
my home, the deal fell through at the last minute,
and Jeanine was there to coach me through the painful
process of getting the deal back on track and through
During the sale of my home, Jeanine went the extra mile
and stayed at my home in my absence while a repairman
worked, and she even found someone to take my dog for a walk
during the final inspection of my home! By relying on
Jeanine's experience and hard work, I sold my home within
two weeks at an amicable price.
Based on my personal experience with Jeanine
Bartholomay, I highly recommend her as a real estate agent
to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

Bartholomay helped make a very hard house buying situation
easy and stress free. Jeanine helped us with the financial
and geographical challenges of buying a house four months
early and from another state. We came to Ann Arbor for only
3 and a half days to find a house in the late fall. Due to
circumstances we could only make this one trip to find a
house. Jeanine set aside all of her time to help us while we
were in town. She was so organized and efficient and really
listened to what we wanted in a home. She was extremely
helpful in helping us with all the details that came along
with living out of state before and after our purchase.
Jeanine was very knowledgeable and thorough and if we had a
question or paper work she had it answered and completed
almost immediately (I don't think anyone could work faster
than her). She is very professional and pleasant to work
with. With her help we had nothing to worry about and we
found the perfect home. We hold Jeanine in high esteem as a
person and as a businesswoman. We enjoyed working with her
and would recommend her highly to anyone.

From our very first meeting with
Jeanine, my husband and I were impressed with how organized
and informative she was. When we had questions, she was
always prompt in returning our phone calls or e-mails. We
were shown many different homes but never felt pressured to
buy any particular one. Jeanine always kept us up-to-date on
which new property listings fit our needs in a home. When we
found the home of our dreams, she was quick to get the
contract agreed upon and signed by all the parties. Jeanine
was so dedicated that she even drove to our house in the
middle of a bad snowstorm just to get our signatures so that
the paper work could get to the seller’s realtor as soon as
We highly recommend Jeanine Bartholomay to anyone who
is looking to buy or sell a house. She is very professional
and easy to work with. My husband and I have even come to
regard Jeanine as one of our close family friends.

My husband and I want to acknowledge Bob and Jeanine
Bartholomay for their wonderful, professional and superior
real estate services. We are so grateful for them. At every
step of the process, they far exceeded our expectations.
From casually looking, to all out house hunting; from buying
and then selling our homes--they were patient, dependable
and smart. Although they obviously had other clients, they
always made us feel like we were their top priority.
Jeanine, is the "Queen" of organization and promptness. If
we asked her to take care of something, it was as good as
done! Bob's market analysis tool, and pricing opinion on our
home were "spot-on" We already have and will continue to
rave about their services and abilities to all our friends,
family and neighbors!

Teresa and I have worked with
Jeanine and Bob on a number of occasions over the years.
They have assisted us greatly in the buying and selling of
homes and condos. Their work ethic goes beyond expectations.
Bob and Jeanine have the highest concern for their clients.
No detail in the buying or selling process is too small for
them. They thoroughly explain all documents, all processes
and all communications. Bob and Jeanine work very hard to
remove much of the stress in the buying and selling process.
In one situation, Jeanine faxed me documents out of
state to review and sign for a home selling. This was
crucial, as a potential buyer wanted their offer quickly
considered before I would be back in town!
So when you’re ready to buy or sell a home or “just
talk it through” – contact Bob or Jeanine. They are very
ready and willing to serve your needs and exceed your
David and Teresa Horn
As first-time home buyers, my husband and I were
clueless about how to go about finding and buying our
perfect home. We were worried about finding something that
met all of our very specific needs and desires, all while
working in a very short time frame around our busy schedules
and the impending birth of our child. (Our son was born a
few days before we closed.)
When we met Jeanine & Bob we were struck by how
friendly and professional they both were. From the start,
all of the pressure and worry in buying our first home
melted away, while Bob & Jeanine worked tirelessly to make
us feel like we were the most important clients they had.
They were always available to us--and we never felt like our
questions were silly or unimportant.
One of the best parts about working with Jeanine & Bob
was the way that they were able to work both individually
and as a team to best serve our needs. If one of them was
unavailable, then the other was able to step in and pick up
as if they were the original person we were working with.
Also--because they bring different perspectives to the
process, we were able to make much more educated decisions
without having to do all of the leg work (on everything from
neighborhoods to sump pumps) on our own. Even after we
closed on our house, we still found ourselves calling
Jeanine & Bob with questions as we got settled because we
were so used to the enthusiastic and thorough response we
knew we would receive from them.
In the end, we felt as though Bob & Jeanine were more
than just our realtors--they became our mentors and our
friends. Because of their hard work, we found our ideal home
with ease and actually enjoyed the process. Now when anyone
we know is looking for a realtor, we happily recommend the
Ann Arbor, MI
We have had the opportunity to
work with Bob and Jeanine for house purchases and sales
within the city of Ann Arbor, within the state of Michigan,
as well as from across the country. Each time has been a
wonderful, worry free experience allowing us to purchase the
house we wanted or to sell within the time frame and price
we planned. Bob and Jeanine go far beyond a realtor's job
description to attend to each detail and to take the
initiative to address every concern. Jeanine even came to
the hospital after our daughter was born so we could sign
the sales contract!
Given our busy lifestyle, their
organization and ease of accessibility via e-mail and phone
facilitated being continuously up to date. When they say
they will take care of it, you can check it off your list.
Having worked with other realtors in other locations, our
experience in working with Bob and Jeanine is set apart by
the information and service they provide, as well as their
professionalism. We highly recommend the Bartholomays when
either buying or selling a home, or both.
Stephen and Elisa Ghezzi
South Lyon, MI
We would like to recommend Bob and Jeanine Bartholomay
as one of the best realtor teams in the Ann Arbor area. We
have collaborated with Bob and Jeanine as we have looked at
homes, vacant land, and investment properties over a number
of years. They are always great to work with. They are
pleasant, easy to get along with and very detail-oriented.
They always return phone calls and e-mail right away, and
never make us feel bad about all the information we would
ask them to find as we did groundwork for various projects.
If we needed to move quickly on something, they were right
there to make it happen. They have been great about
protecting our interests and informing us about details we
might not have been aware of. Bob and Jeanine strike a good
balance between bringing their professional expertise to
bear, yet letting us make the decisions. We have recommended
them to friends who have agreed that they were a great
choice. Their professional manner, knowledge of the market,
personal integrity, and attentiveness would make any client
pleased with their services.
