Teaching was my 1st career followed by managing a Sales Training Company for Convention Products. This training concentrated on competitive sales skills to very different audiences which became my building blocks for successful negotiations. Marketing blitzes bring parties together, but effective communication brings about signed transactions.
I moved to real estate, so I could build long term knowledge in my favorite industry and have the adventure of each property & client be a unique sale. 25+ years later I have represented Buyers & Sellers for New or Resale Homes & Land and was a Sales Manager for New Home Subdivisions. I worked as an Escrow Officer & VP for a Title Company. I also was an Administrator for a Land Developer which included Wildlife/Ag Exemptions.
For the last 10 years I have concentrated on our Residential Market in the Austin Hill Country with planned & unrestricted communities + land for custom builds. A property owner in Dripping Springs since 1993, I have watched Austin, Driftwood, Wimberley, Buda & Kyle… bloom where they are planted with the welcome mat out for new neighbors.
Whether you are a Buyer or a Seller share your Personal Dreams and Lifestyle Plan with me and Dedicated Service with Your Priorities Becoming Mine is My Commitment to You.
To whom it may concern.
I have lived in the Austin area since 1978, buying and selling several houses and properties along the way. I have no complaint with any of the past transactions, each realtor did a good job presenting my properties.
The home I built on 290 Chalk Bluff Ct in Driftwood Texas was a very special one to me. In the very beginning I contacted Janet for help finding that perfect lot that was just the right size, facing in just the right direction. Janet found the perfect lot for me.
The decision to build my new home was easy, I knew what to build, and how to build it. I used quality over quantity. My house was a true home to me, I loved it. It was built exactly as I wanted it.
I never thought I would sell my home but life changes and you must change with it. I needed to move to Ft Worth to take on new challenges. So, I needed to sell my beautiful home.
Janet Bonney made this very hard decision the most memorable experience I’ve ever had selling or buying a house. She was spot on with the value of my home, she gave me great advice about what I should do to increase the value. She made it fun, but most of all she made it personal, I felt I gained a friend in the process.
Janet is one of a kind, she is best in class, she is a trusted advisor, she is a first-class person. I would recommend Janet Bonney to anyone looking for a property or wanting to sell a property.
She is the best!!
Purchasing a home is quite an intimidating task, especially having to trust people we barely know to help us with a very big purchase. Lucky for me I found Janet, not only was she well informed as to the process of buying a home, her negotiating skills were superb. She was a great advisor and I believe helped me get a discount that exceeded my expectations.
Janet went far beyond her duties as a real estate agent to make my transaction as simple as possible, taking calls at odd hours, spending much time researching, advising, and making calls on my behalf as a result I was able to close with favorable terms.
It is with great pleasure, and without any reservation that I recommend Janet Bonney for your real estate needs.
My husband, Steve S., and I would like to express our sincere thanks to Janet Bonney for the exemplary service she gave us in the more than 1 year period of time that she served as our real estate agent. Janet exemplified the consummate service that a professional realtor should provide in all aspects of residential real estate sales. She found us just the right location for us to have a beautiful garden home built and then, while our home was being built, she worked tirelessly to advise us on how best to get the house she would be selling for us ready to put on the market. Due to her excellent marketing skills and staging of our home, our home went under contract in just 3 weeks on the market! Throughout the whole process, Janet “held our hand” and kept reassuring us that all would go well and it did. My husband and I are very grateful for Janet’s persistent patience (with us) throughout the whole year.
My husband and I have bought and sold numerous properties and Janet Bonney is by far the best Realtor we’ve had the pleasure of working with. Janet’s professionalism and attention to detail is nothing short of exceptional. We have since moved from TX and still refer to her in our real estate making decisions.
Janet Bonney is who you need.

Having been in our home just a little more than a month, we are settling in to a routine and loving our new location. We still have boxes to unpack and decorations to hang, but it is starting to feel like home.
The process of moving can be extremely stressful and frustrating, but a wonderful realtor certainly helps to alleviate those challenges. We could not be more pleased with the services our realtor, Janet Bonney, provided for us from the beginning with those services even continuing after our move in to our new home. Throughout the entire process, Janet was patient and attentive to our needs. Each of the times we were able to come to the area to look at homes, Janet greeted us with a smile and a well-planned day. The Hill Country is a large area, but Janet made the best use of our time by always having a detailed map ready to go so that no time was wasted. We started early and searched well into the evening on almost all of our house-hunting trips. The day we found our home, it was the 12th and last house on the list for the day! Viewing 12 homes in one day in this vast area is quite an accomplishment and verifies Janet’s planning and organizational skills! Once we made the decision to buy, Janet was extremely detail-oriented and thorough. She thought of every detail and carried each detail through until completion. She was a true advocate for us as we dealt with contracts, walk-throughs, repairs, closing issues, and more. Despite the fact that her job is complete, Janet has called to check on us several times. She truly cares about us as people as well as clients. She inquires about our daughter, our dog, and my health with each phone call to see how we’re doing in the new home.
If you are planning a move to the beautiful Texas Hill Country, you deserve the best realtor possible. We highly recommend contacting:
She is the consummate professional and ultimate nice person. You can’t ask for more in a realtor, and you won’t find it any place else but with Janet.

We retired and relocated from the Houston, TX area to Dripping Springs, TX in 2016 to be near our daughter and her family. Our experience with Janet Bonney was beyond exceptional in helping us find our retirement home! Janet was extremely knowledgeable of the very active Wimberley and Dripping Springs realty market. Her process for confirming our housing needs, assisting us with understanding the local market and explaining the urgency of decision making was most helpful. Her methodical process to ensure the timely completion of all paperwork and her assistance in coordinating a thorough home inspection enabled us to successfully counter offer a fair and reasonable price. Janet’s knowledge of living in “the country” (i.e., wells and septic systems) verses city life was most helpful in our transition. Without her services we doubt the purchase would have happened. When we sold our home in Houston after purchasing this home, the realty services there, although adequate, could not be compared with Janet’s excellent service! Janet is remarkable – her professionalism, thoroughness and dedication to her client made this purchase a delightful and much appreciated experience!
We strongly recommend Janet Bonney as the professional realtor of choice when moving to this area.

Janet Bonney went above and beyond to secure the purchase of a lot that we’d fallen in love with during one of our trips. The transaction was somewhat complicated as the listing had been on and off the market and was off the market at the time we were ready to purchase. Janet did a wonderful job negotiating the price, securing an indemnity clause, arranging for an Oak Wilt inspection as well as preventive Oak Wilt trenching. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients to ensure the transaction goes smoothly.
The relationship went beyond that of realtor and client, we consider Janet, and her husband, our friends.

In 2016 I was preparing to retire and move to the Austin area to be closer to my children and grandchildren. Since I had not purchased a home in over 30 years, I was unfamiliar with the real estate process and especially the Austin market conditions. A friend had recently moved to the area and suggested that I contact Janet Bonney since they had such a positive experience with purchase of their home. After contacting her, she took the time and interest in my home requirements and pricing for the relocation.
I was especially impressed with how hard she worked to find the right properties to show. We visited 6-7 properties and eventually settled on a home being offered directly by an owner. She was able to guide me through the mortgage process and organized the inspections and reviews in a timely manner. She is very knowledgeable about the local home maintenance and utility needs for rural properties. She went over and above in guiding me through the entire real estate process. Her interest in me and my family exceeded my expectations and is a testament to her professionalism. I am very grateful for her help and continuing friendship.
We’ve had experiences with 6-7 realtors in the last 25 years and Janet Bonney was by far and away the best, most professional, most knowledgeable and most helpful. Two years ago we were living in Memphis and looking for a house in Wimberley when we found Janet. She met with us to get a feel for what we were looking for and then searched daily to compile of list of possibilities in the fast moving and fluid Wimberley market. Each time we flew down to look everything was so organized and we were able to see so much in a short period of time, and then about two months later we found our home that just came on the market.
We love our Wimberley home and I can say I don’t think we would be here today without Janet’s tireless efforts. In addition, after closing when really she could have just moved on, Janet researched and provided us with names of local service providers that helped make our move and first few months an easy transition.
I would recommend Janet to anyone and everyone.
