A little about me...

Born at George Air Force Base, my family moved to San Diego when I was about six months old as my dad retired from the United States Air Force to start his career as a commercial airline pilot for the beloved PSA and then US Airways. My family enjoyed the rural lifestyle and I grew up with horses and enjoying the outdoors. I started playing tennis competitively at the age of 10 and I competed on the Southern California Circuit until College. Growing up, my mom owned and ran her own Montessori School in Ramona that she sold, but is still open today! I have always had a love for teaching and early childhood education so my career started off working in Montessori Schools.

In 2003, I moved to Mammoth to pursue another passion, rock climbing, and to help my sister with her business and their newborn son. Quickly after moving to Mammoth, I met my husband Pete – we were married in Mammoth and started our family there as well. In 2005, I founded and ran Mammoth Montessori Children’s House which I operated full-time for about 10 years. It was a great experience to run my own successful business which was an integral part of our community and to follow in my mom’s footsteps. In 2014, my husband and I and our two kids moved to San Diego when my dad was diagnosed with cancer.

My family and I love San Diego – we enjoy boating, hiking, and being tourists in our own town! Our kids, Grace 16, and Sawyer 13 are active in school, and the community– our son plays baseball with a local club team. Our schedule is kept busy with our kids but we love it. I still find time to volunteer with Make-A-Wish, St. Jude, and Poway Soroptimist. My husband, Pete, has been working in real estate full-time for 20 years and we make a great team – trust, integrity, hard work, and results – Our goal is to leverage our great teamwork and knowledge to help our clients buy and sell real estate in San Diego.

"Janicke recently helped me, and my fiancé purchase our first home. Let me say this, do not underestimate her experience in this industry. At first, it felt like I was working with a typical SALES rep, but that is not the case with Janicke. She has been doing this for years, and very quickly, my fiancé and I saw that experience at work. We truly felt like we were working with a friend who was goingRead MoreRead Less

"Janicke and Kasey did a great job representing us on the buyer's side of the purchase of our home in PB.

"Janicke has helped us purchase a home and sell another home mostly recently in the Pacific Beach area. Both experiences about 10 yrs apart were extremely positive.

"Janicke Swanson and her team sold a property for us in the Crown Point area. These were difficult circumstances, and Janicke and every member of her team was compassionate and attentive every step of the way. Janicke is extremely knowledgeable and responsive to every question and concern. I highly recommend Janicke and her team."
"As a first time buyer, I felt completely comfortable with Janicke as our agent. Prior to us officially signing her as our agent, she met us for coffee and took the time to answer all our questions about the home buying process, gave us advice, and simply made the process much less stressful. She and her Kasey were very quick to respond to any and all of our needs and were very knowledgeable about Read MoreRead Less
