From our first phone call, I knew it would be a pleasure to work with Jane, and I wasn’t wrong. Throughout our home search and the buying process, Jane was our responsive and informative ally. Jane is genuinely kind and was an absolute pleasure to work with, and possesses calm confidence that really made the rollercoaster of buying a home feel a relative breeze. Additionally, she’s provided great referrals. We would, and will, recommend Jane to anyone looking to buy or sell!
We would like to thank Jane for the professionalism, the courtesy, and for the smooth and pleasant process of selling our home. We definitely recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.

As first time buyers and relatively new to Austin and the US, the prospect of navigating the competitive housing market and learning the buying process was a daunting one. Jane immediately made us completely at ease. She has a fantastic knowledge of the market and each area around the city. Jane's engagement and guidance was positive, professional and prompt, no question too small or rudimentary. Critically she understood our tastes and particular eye for detail, which has made the whole experience enjoyable. We've ended with a dream home in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Austin.

Our mother passed recently and having cared for her for over a year, I was exhausted. After almost a year with another agency, I met Jane. I was immediately impressed with her professionalism, enthusiasm, and obvious competence. Within a day, Jane saw the best features, highlighted them, and changed the appearance from slightly outdated to a sleek, clear and perfectly modern look, which immediately attracted attention. Within the week, the house was transformed and was sold a few days later. Being very busy, it was a tremendous relief to know that Jane was at the helm, and basically turned the entire process into a pleasant and rewarding experience. We think the world of Jane, who is also a very kind and cool lady, and somewhat of a magician!
At a time in my life when major events were converging, Jane arranged for the leasing of my attached new build apartment. Jane's calm confidence and purposeful communication took a very large weight off. Professional yard sign installed Thursday PM, apartment listed Thursday PM, showings Friday, applicant approved on Saturday, and lease signed on Sunday. Smooth and seamless from start to finish. Any anxiety of being a first-time landlord vanished. My new tenant is great, and I couldn't be happier with the process.
Jane handled the renting of my house in Austin, and I was amazed at how focused and efficient she was. Knowing this would be a small project for a realtor, I expected to be "fit in" around other, more important clients, but Jane was all-in from the beginning. Jane took on the project with enthusiasm and had a beautiful listing up in no time. She was completely accessible and responsive during the entire process, and her professional touch resulted in a list of excellent prospective renters only a day after the property listed! Jane is just a delight to work with, and I will definitely work with her again in the future.
In September 2019, Jane McCan, our dear friend and realtor, sold our house for us. We began getting the house ready to sell in May of 2019 and we moved to Colorado in July. Jane assisted us greatly in picking and choosing what was of high importance to repair or replace. It was a big job and she was there every step of the way, making suggestions, applauding the improvements, and even pointing out what could be done for better curb appeal and how to make the back yard more enticing. Jane showed us homes that had sold in our area for comparison in selling price. As it turns out, we were asking too much for our home because of sentimental attachments. Through her guidance, we came to understand this and dropped our price accordingly. After the inspection, there were many issues that came up, many of them unexpected. Jane held our hands through all of it, even when I lost my temper and ranted and raved, she calmly held my hand, told me it would be okay and walked me through the best possible options. It was a bit trying at times and I always knew that Jane would be there to guide me, calm me and reassure me. Jane even went to our house and watered plants, met with contractors and kept up with everything going on while improvements were being made. Since we were in Colorado and selling our home long distance, this was huge. You will not find a more compassionate, truly caring, intelligent, respectful and creative realtor.

I hired Jane as my VP of Operations knowing she had owned and operated two highly successful boutique retail stores in Austin. She brought with her an eye for detail and passion for customer service that only an owner can appreciate. Jane has a vast working knowledge of how to get things done, and get things done the right way. She has an amazing ability to connect with others, and will keep you smiling while you’re with her and after she's gone. I trust her with every password I have, and I’m extremely grateful for her loyalty and friendship.
Jane McCan is a rising star. I have worked with her in many capacities. Jane's marketing and sales experience brings a whole new dimension to her responsibilities as a Sotheby's agent. She is a multi-tasker, experienced in written marketing communication, scheduling, negotiation, and a pro at closing a deal. She has professional experience staging residential properties to enable a quick and efficient sale. Her impeccable taste, honesty, patience, and kindness make everyone who works with Jane feel fortunate to be on her team.
We're so happy we found Jane! We were looking for a lease and she made us feel like we were her most important client. Whereas other agents have only sent us robo-email listings, Jane actively searched the MLS for the right property for us and she had great attention to detail during our lease signing. When it comes time for us to buy, we will definitely be working with her again.

Jane is highly proactive, and her friendly, no-stress approach made our real estate experience in this Mach 1-paced market easy and enjoyable. She knows and has great affection for all of Austin's unique neighborhoods, and took the time to help us find and nab the best fit for our family. Our highest recommendation for Jane and for the Sotheby's team!

I have had the recent pleasure of working with Jane! I cannot express how lucky I am to have worked with her. Searching for a property can be overwhelming, especially when you are in a time crunch. There were certain criteria that I needed and Jane made it a priority to search for the perfect property for me. As a first time home buyer, not quite knowing the ropes, Jane gave me the VIP treatment and exuded great patience with me. Buying a new home can be stressful and scary but it could not have been anymore pleasant. She was always available at anytime. No question was too big or too menial. Her professionalism and integrity never ceased to amaze me. I could not have been in better hands. I have complete trust and faith that Jane will continue to succeed in her career and bring only the best services to those who work with her. I cannot thank her enough. She is a great asset for the Sotheby's team!
Jane McCan is the best real estate professional I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Jane is a woman of character and integrity who is uniquely responsive and works with each of her clients as if she was buying the home for herself. This is a special perspective for a realtor and it makes all the difference, especially if you are relocating to Austin and need personal introductions to top tier professionals who can make the transition easier. Jane worked with us on every aspect of our transition, from search, to purchase, through financing and insurance and even down to working with professionals inside and outside our family's new home. I cannot recommend her strongly enough.
Jane was extremely pragmatic, easy to work with and very responsive every step of the way. Buying a home is always stressful, but somehow Jane makes it pleasant, too. She was a very good listener and really cared about our needs. We would use her over and over and would definitely recommend her to everyone we know!

I had the good fortune of being referred to Jane from a previous client of hers upon my recent move to Austin. While trying to find a home in a brand new city can be an overwhelming experience, Jane’s strong grasp of the Austin market and thoroughness in the search process made the effort as seamless as it could be. Frankly, it also proved to be quite rewarding as I ended up purchasing a residence that I’m thrilled to now call “home." Just like my referral, I would highly recommend partnering with Jane in your search for an exciting new place in Austin that you're proud to call “home” too.
Jane is incredible! She got me an above listing offer on the first day my home was listed! Jane is so lovely and hardworking she made the whole process of listing and selling my home completely stress free and easy. She is an absolute gem! Jane was extremely responsive, conscientious and thorough. She was very organized, professional and always on top of her game. Jane went above and beyond every step of the way, her customer service was so impeccable I often felt as though I were her only client! On a personal note, it was a pleasure spending time with Jane, she is a warm, enthusiastic, intelligent, positive individual that I truly enjoyed getting to know through the process. It was an absolute delight getting to work with her!
Look no further! We will use Jane for all of our real estate needs in the Austin area. She guided us through every step of the transaction with a positive, reassuring, and calming presence. My husband and I were transitioning from a condo in Brooklyn to our first home purchase in Austin, so we had a lot of questions. Jane was always available and willing to review in length whatever issues came up - we always knew we had a trusted partner on the other end of the line! Additionally, Jane is well connected and had great recommendations for inspectors, general contractors, septic inspectors, surveyors etc. We'll absolutely work with Jane again!

Jane is indeed a real estate goddess. I decided to sell my home of 25 years --- a seriously daunting task, especially since I was doing it single-handedly. I don't know how I could have done it without her. She has great instincts that she acts upon only when the data supports her strategy and ideas. She's insanely well-organized, reassuringly calm, and completely willing to pitch in with old-fashioned elbow grease when it's needed. My home sale happened much faster and went more smoothly than I'd ever have thought possible. Jane had everything to do with that. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat.
I loved working with Jane. She made the process of listing and selling my condo stress-free. I felt there were quite a few hurdles that had to be jumped to get this unit to sell, but Jane always remained optimistic. In the end, she was able to overcome all obstacles and my condo sold at full asking price! The entire time we worked together, she put my best interest first, which was very comforting. She also always made herself available when I had questions or needed advice. Jane is a gem! I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell.
Jane is amazing!! We couldn’t imagine buying our first home with anyone else. She was attentive, patient, knowledgeable, and she held our hand through every step of the process; from viewing properties, through closing on our home. Jane also has a fabulous network of referrals, and helped us get the best rates on our homeowners insurance as well- she knows everyone! If we had a question, she was available and with an informed answer. If we asked something new, she did the research and got back to us immediately. We were in awe at how well Jane understood what we were looking for, and how at every turn she looked after our interests to help guide us to the right house for us. We felt heard, supported, and we never felt any pressure to pursue any houses outside of our interests or comfort zones. Plus; she’s incredibly kind, and with an upbeat personality that makes the entire process more fun! I can’t recommend her highly enough, best realtor EVER.
When we decided to do a 1031 exchange into a property in Austin, Texas, we were fortunate to have Jane McCan as our realtor. As out of state residents, we had to rely on an agent who knew the Austin area well in order to guide us successfully through the complicated exchange process. Jane McCan was that person. Her knowledge of city areas, growth potential, and properties that would fit into our unique needs was exceptional. Jane kept us informed throughout the process, professionally guiding us to a smooth and timely close. We highly recommend Jane McCan as your Austin-area real estate agent.
