I grew up primarily in the Bay Area and then moved to Folsom with my husband and daughter in 1989. We immediately fell in love with everything Folsom had to offer, from the tight knit family community, school districts, recreational activities and close proximity to Lake Natoma, Folsom Lake and Lake Tahoe

In 2010, I made the best decision of my career to obtain my real estate license. My very first year, I was awarded "Rising Star" and have received Masters Club Recognition the following five years in a row, 2011-2015. Real Estate has given me the opportunity to help many families make their dream of home ownership come true. 

Prior to joining Lyon Real Estate, I worked in sales and marketing for various companies. With my strong background in communication, negotiations, and customer service, I have a nitch to work diligently to create a smooth and stress free experience. This experience has played a key role in a successful business relationship with my clients.  

Outside of real estate, I love spending quality time with my husband of 30 years, 2 amazing children and our chocolate lab Bruin.  Additionally, I love boating, gardening, cooking and entertaining for family and friends.

My clients are my top priority. I am committed to helping educate people in one of the most important decisions of their life, purchasing or selling a home. The greatest compliment I can receive is a referral from the relationships I build and hope to continue that success with you.

We have had the pleasure of working with Jeanne Peterson on two occasions within the last year. Recently, she helped market and sell our home, the same home she helped us purchase in late 2017. We highly recommend Jeanne no matter the transaction, selling or buying a home. Purchasing a home is one of the biggest purchases any of us will ever make. The real estate agent you choose can make a huge difference in getting top dollar for your home or helping you land the best price on that dream home you have your eyes on. If you’re interested in why Jeanne Peterson, read on. I have bought and sold seven homes in the last 20 years. I have worked with agents that focus on helping you buy a home, a “buyers” agent and agents that will help you sell your home, a “sellers” agent. This past year, late 2017, our family had to move from the southeastern US to the Sacramento area due to a corporate relocation. In November of 2017 the corporate relocation department put me in touch with Jeanne Peterson to help us purchase a home. We had to find and close on a home before January 1, 2018. We didn’t have time to interview agents. We had to put our faith in Jeanne. Our trust in Jeanne was not misplaced. She delivered, by negotiating an amazing price for the home she worked so hard to help us find. She worked back on the closing schedule to ensure we’d be in the home before the end of the year. We moved in December 27, 2017. Working with Jeanne we came to the realization that stellar agents are hard to come by. We were incredibly lucky to have had her working for us. It had never occurred to me after all these years, until Jeanne, that specific traits, certain skills are very important to look for in an agent. Some of the notable traits you’ll find in Jeanne are; listener, patient, tenacious and loyal. Jeanne has strong organizational skills, is great at follow-through, her market knowledge is tops, she knows real estate processes, and you’ll get a strong negotiator and marketer. There are so many people in real estate that perhaps shouldn’t be. Jeanne will make others pale in comparison. I know this after buying and selling the seven homes I have owned. Fast forward to late summer 2018, we decided to sell the same home Jeanne helped us purchase less than a year ago. We were sweating a potential loss. So we once again turned to Jeanne, except this time as the selling agent. Once again, she did not disappoint. I indicated that Jeanne is a strong marketer. This is an absolute must in a real estate agent that you’re entrusting to sell your home. Jeanne helped us properly prepare and stage our home. The home went on the market and in less than 24 hours we had a couple of full price offers. Jeanne closed the deal. We didn’t loose money, even made back what we had put in and then some, and the sale closed in a little more than two weeks’ time!

We started the process to sell our house using the online discount broker that promised the same service and a very low cost. That did not go very well. We knew pretty quickly that we would need a more concentrated and committed strategy to get our house sold. Jeanne Peterson should've been who we started with in the first place. If not for her attention to detail, her understanding of the market and her committed follow-up, our house would've never been sold had we stayed with the discount broker. She is worth every penny and her service and follow through is what was key to helping us sell our house.


—Prateek Singh, Roseville

Jeanne Peterson helped sell my house within one month. As an agent, Jeanne is always polite, reachable and most importantly, she understood what exactly we(sellers) want and bridged very well between the seller and the buyer in terms of negotiation, communication, etc. Jeanee also provided many useful suggestions on how to prepare the selling, where should my money be spent on repairing and other valuable tips which are especially useful for me(first time seller). I would highly recommend Jeanne to my friends and other sellers.


—Amber, Folsom

Jeanne contacted us on a blind call from a friend of ours on a Sunday morning, and with 30 days we had the keys to our home. The experience went fast with no snags due to Jeanne's attention to detail that kept us on schedule and in control of the situation. She was very knowledgeable of the business side that we were clueless about and had an answer for all of our questions. She said jump and we did and it all wwent very smooth. We even closed a week earlier than expected and she juggled it all to make it happen. Such a wonderful professional and person. She knows her business. And takes care of her clients with the utmost care. Thanks Jeanne.


—Chris Jones, Roseville, CA
  /  

I would like to highly recommend Jeanne Peterson as your Lyon Real Estate Broker as she has expert local knowledge of the area market, years of experience in the area and her ability to deliver on all her commitments is something you rarely experience. Jeanne is polite, understanding of your needs/limitations, is very trustworthy and committed to you (and your families needs). Jeanne always kept me in the loop as to what was happening in the market, during open houses, inspections and all the way thru closing. Jeanne Peterson was by my side from our first meeting to handing off the keys. I could not have asked for a better broker to manage this very stressful time for me. Thank you Jeanne!!

We met Jeanne Peterson after a recommendation from a very close friend. We connected immediately! From the first meeting, we felt extremely comfortable with Jeanne, her knowledge of the area market, her approach to the listing process, and her professionalism. She made our sales process stress-free as she acted as a fantastic representative during the entire process, always keeping our best interests in mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone! She is a joy to work with!

Jeanne was a fruend the minute she stepped inside my home.


—Louise Scjiele, sacramento

Jeanne is one of the most knowledgeable, professional and helpful people I have ever worked with in any capacity. She does a fantastic job, and I wouldn't consider using anyone else for my real estate needs.


—Heather Donoho, Folsom, CA
  /  

I can't recommend Jeanne highly enough. Her experience really shows and she was on top of every detail from start to finish. Exactly what an agent should be. She was available for my questions via text phone, and email and had a warm inviting demeanor. I really felt like she was my advocate and listened well to my needs; I didn't feel like "just another customer" with her caring attention. I'd recommend her to anyone.


—Kat O'Kelly, Folsom
  /  

I live in the UK and Jeanne was sensitive to this fact. She was very helpful in all aspects of the process which was not easy. She smoothly navigated two offers that fell through and one that went through - all in a month's time. She was dedicated to selling my property and making sure it was ready to be sold. Her recommendations on how to prepare for a sale and her staging of the empty condo were spot on. She marketed and followed up on leads without fuss. All in all, Jeanne was outstanding. She is a true professional.

Jeanne is the best; we have two additional homes that we will be listing with her in the next year or two.


—Linda L.; Folsom

I have engaged in many real estate transactions over the years. I have never dealt with anyone as professional and vigilant as Jeanne. She was never satisfied unless we were completely satisfied and clearly demonstrated that our concerns were more important to her than :closing the deal". Jeanne is a credit to the industry and to her company and will definitely use her again in the future. Kurt Reisig


—Kurt Reisig, El Dorado Hills CA
  /  

Jeanne Peterson was very great to work with! She was very easy to communicate with by call, text, or email. We never felt like she was pushing us to buy a home that we were not loving. Jeanne really proved herself valuable once we put in an offer and until closing. She was able to get us a credit at closing because of the carpet when I didn’t think they were going to give at all. We would recommend Jeanne to anyone looking to purchase a home.


—Katie Proctor, Folsom, CA
  /  

She providd a great service and very friendly. She handled all transactions on time and very informative for us. I would definately jse her again or recommend her to network of our family and friends.


—Loc

Jeanne helped me with every aspect of preparing the house as well as marketing the house. She is a consummate professional! She is not only professional, knowledgeable and helpful but also very personable and friendly to work with. I highly recommend anyone buying or selling property in the greater Folsom/Granite Bay/Rocklin area to work with Jeanne!


—Sharon Lowman, Granite Bay

Jeanne is awesome in every aspect of the sales process. It couldn't have gone smoother or achieved a better outcome!


—Jill R, Folsom, CA
  /  

Jeanne Peterson was great throughout the entire process. Her pool inspector and home inspector were very knowledgeable and pointed out things that were very important. She answered my questions and was very good at pointing out a fair price to shoot for. We settled on a price that was below the asking price and what she thought was fair.


—Henry Mejia Folsom, Ca.
  /  

Working with Jeanne was wonderful! As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions and ideas and Jeanne was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and always made herself available to answer questions or help move along the transaction any time of the day. Jeanne was very efficient and coached us through the entire process, and we were able to find a home that we love and close the purchase in a matter of weeks, which was crucial with our busy schedules and goals as buyers. Thank you for everything Jeanne and we love our new home!


—Kevin Lowman & Nikki Scarlett, Folsom, CA

Thank you so much Jeanne. When I truly thought I would never sell my house you gave me hope again. Kristie Dufresne


—Kristie Dufresne Folsom, Ca
  /  

She was fabulous. I was most impressed after our first visit by how she would market our home and how she would manage the negotiations. I also enjoyed how friendly and down to earth she was. We clicked right away. She was professional and so thoughtful too. She was always available to answer questions and was also very responsive in returning my calls promptly if she wasn't available at the moment. The photographer she provides was fantastic and made our house look fantastic in the online and brochure pics without distorting or providing unrealistic images. The staggers she brought were also a delight to work with.


—Julie Murdock, Folsom
  /  

I couldn't speak more highly of our experience with Jeanne in purchasing our first home. She was informative, patient, caring and extremely helpful with all aspects of the purchase. She was contactable at all times, very quick to respond and made the whole process extremely easy on our part from start to finish. I would recommend Jeanne to absolutely everyone in the Folsom and surrounding areas.


—Richard
  /  

I worked with Jean on the sale of my mother's condo after she passed away. She was amazing in her compassion and understanding of my emotions and grieving for my mom. When I heard about this home I could buy, Jean was the only one I would have considered to help me to accomplish the goal. I did not realize the process of getting my home ready for the photo shoot and on the market quickly. Jean pitched in and brought me boxes and bubble wrap. She actually helped I the process. She made it fun but serious enough to get done in the time allowed.


—Christine Brothers
  /  

Jeanne Peterson is amazing!!! She is a persons of her word and worked really hard for us. She explained the process all along and was so professional and knowledgeable of all the questions we had. She always "stated" that she was available for any concerns. My daughter recommended her to us, and I certainly would recommend her to other future clients. She is so eager and such a pleasant person to work with. Jeanne Peterson is OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is so "ON TOP OF EVERYTHING." SHE'S THE BEST!!!!


—Ron and Brenda Sulis

Jeannne did an amazing job from the beginning to the closing of escrow. We really liked that she was a person, not a sales agent.

Additional Testimonials

Jeanne knew so much about purchasing a home on Folsom, she was very knowledgeable about all the details required to make our home purchase. She knew just the type of house we wanted, and notified us day 1 of a house going up on the market, I think we were nearly the first one in the house, and we made an offer that night. The whole experience was A Plus!


—J & C Becker

Jeanne helped me buy a home, I highly recommend her!

—Marisela Buehrle

Jeanne is one of the hardest working people I know. She took the time to do what was necessary while researching our desires in finding the right home. She was there to show us as many homes as we wanted to see in a such a short time. I could call her and she was always ready to be of assistance in any way to support us while buying our home. I would highly recommend Jeanne to anyone looking to sell or buy a home while enjoying the experience. She made it fun while being very professional. Thank you Jeanne! We will call on you again.


—P. Reisig

Jeanne worked tirelessly to close a very difficult short sale. job well done! She did such a great job we used her again to help secure another rental...

Jeanne was absolutely fantastic to work with. She was ways available to answer any questions and her responsiveness was quick. I would definitely recommend Jeanne to anyone buying, selling or otherwise. She made a difficult and time consuming process easier to deal with.

—K. Fagen

Jeanne is one of the hardest working Realtors I have ever known. She is honest, knowledgeable and dedicated to her clients. She works well with other agents which makes for smoother transactions. Jeanne always gives 100% and gets the job DONE! I know this to be true because Jeanne was the agent I chose when I bought my house. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anybody needing to buy or sell a home.


—J. Cook

Jeanne was so wonderful to work with. Her level of professionalism and market knowledge helped us find the perfect home for our family in a very fast moving market.


—S & D Losin

Jeanne Peterson is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to selling a home. I had never sold a home before and she helped me every step of the way, getting me top dollar for my home. I sold in one day and closed with no issues. I would highly recommend Jeanne for all your real estate needs!


—L. Benedick

Working with Jeanne was a wonderful experience from the get go. Her knowledge of the Sacramento area market and excellent listening and negotiating skills were a great blessing. She was able to understand what we were looking for in our new home within a few, short, property showings and found us a wonderful home in a lovely neighborhood we enjoy every day. Her experience really shined through when we had 6 competing offers on the home we were interested in and all we had to do was to let her do the talking with the selling agent and take her advice on putting in the right offer. Once the offer was accepted, she managed through our frustrations in closing a short sale wonderfully and was always honest and realistic in managing our expectations each step of the lengthy process. Overall, we had such a positive experience with Jeanne leading us through and we would not hesitate a beat to recommend her to anyone considering to buy or sell their home.


—V. Balasubrawmanian

Jeanne was extremely knowledgeable and helpful! She was very responsive, and I am a very impatient person. I never felt like she left us hanging. If we ever sell or buy again we will work with Jeanne.


—J. Barnes

Jeanne Peterson was very caring, kind, and patient. She knew how emotional selling the house was for us, and treated us respectfully. Also, she did a marvelous job marketing the house, from professional photographs to a beautiful Virtual Tour! We highly recommend Jeanne to anyone who is thinking about selling their home - she will be there for you all the way through the process!


—J. Christison

—K & D Eastwood

One dandy lady. She went above and beyond anything that was expected of her. You can never go wrong with her as your agent!


—J. Wilson

Jeanne was absolutely wonderful to work with in selling our home. It was a quick smooth process. Anytime we had questions, particularly terminology, she took the time to explain how it worked or what it meant. She was very sensitive to our pain points from previous real estate experiences. We highly recommend Jeanne for any of your real estate needs!

I highly recommend Jeanne Peterson to anyone who wants to hire a top notch professional who is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to get the job done. In addition, she is personable and a delight to work with.


—K. Read

We met Jeanne at a open house she was having. We were not yet in the market but wanted to see what the market was like for when we were ready. Jeanne was very nice and welcoming to work with us even though we told her initially that we were 1-2 years out from buying a house. Something other relators were not. Many once they heard we were not in the market that second went back to their phone or to another guest at the property. not Jeanne. She kept in touch with us over the near year or so and when we were ready to start looking she was ready to go to work with for us. From the many house showings to the returning of our phone calls, Jeanne was always on top of things. When we did find our home she was right there with us through the entire process of signing the papers and helping us understand the negotiation part. A huge plus for first time home buyers. I recall she was even willing to drive our documents friday night from Roseville to EDH to make sure they got in so that we could close before the weekend. She is an absolute Gem to work with. Even now 2 years + after buying our home I still reach out to her about contracting referrals or questions about the inspection work that was done during the buying of our home. We drop her name every chance we get when friends of ours are looking to buy a home. If we ever decide to sell our home you can bet that Jeanne is the first person we will be calling. She has set our expectation very high and I don't think many realtors will be able to live up to her standards. Thank you Jeanne for all you did for Sarah and I. You helped make the biggest financial decision of our lives go as smooth and worry free as it could have. Buying a house is a big deal. You need someone on your side that is looking out for you. If you are reading this review, you have found your realtor :)


—D. Hummerickhouse

Jeanne was our listing agent in the sale of our home in Folsom CA. I could not have asked for anyone who could have done more for us. She was so good about helping us get our home ready to sell, i.e. what to remove what to add without being demanding. She was always honest with us throughout the process. She "always" answered our phone calls regardless of day or evening and we had our fair share of questions and concerns. We felt like the advice and support she gave us in the sale of our home was always in our best interest. I can't say enough about Jeanne as a person, real estate agent, and friend. She exemplifies what a real estate agent should be.


—J&M Kelley

Jeanne came into my life when my Mother was looking for a condo in Folsom. She had moved back to Folsom from Florida in June of 2013 for health reasons. She was determine to find a Condo rather than rent an apartment. Jeanne was amazing in getting her into a Low income Condo in Madrone in Folsom. Unfortunately we lost my Mom last May. She really did not get to enjoy the beautiful Condo due to being so sick with cancer. Mom had paid cash for the Condo and willed it to me so I could be payment free in my old age. Well with my mother passing many years sooner than we expected I was in a tough position. I own my own home and not ready to give up the space along with my style of life here. I found Jeanne's business card in my Mothers things and was so excited to get her to help me with this tough decision. Jeanne helped me to make the decision to sell the condo since I was not ready to move in there at this time in my life. She was so understanding and comforting with my grief and me feeling I was letting my mother down by not moving in the Condo now. She was very compassionate and took care of the business at hand when I was an emotional mess. Thank you Jeanne you will always be a friend and I will need you when I do decide to sell my home.


—C. Brothers

Jeanne was great to work with. Very knowledgeable and a good local resource for vendors, contractors, etc. And just the fact that she was so responsive to our questions and concerns, especially when we were out of state for a good portion of the time, made us feel so confident that we were always in good hands.


—C. Jost

What a great agent. Jeanne was the complete professional. She communicated on a regular basis, followed up on all the details right through the close, and she made sure that we understood all the details. We were very fortunate to have her as our realtor.


—M & D Jacob

Jeanne is a true professional!!! She is personable, easy to talk to and a great negotiator. We always felt she had our best interests in mind as she helped us navigate through the sometimes stressful home buying process. She returned my calls and answered all my questions and I could count on her to take care of all the details big or small. I would (and have) highly recommend Jeanne to my family and friends!


—A & C Schaefer

I have used Jeanne Peterson to help me sell and buy at least 4 homes. She is of impeccable integrity. Her work ethic is unsurpassed by anyone I know. I cannot recommend any agent more highly than Jeanne!


—K. Reisig

Jeanne is very personable and listens to what the customer wants in a home. She was knowledgeable about the areas we were searching. With a few snags here and there with our loan (nothing to do with her BTW) in the end she saw us through into our beautiful home.
