Personal Profile

Jan is married to Roger with whom she shares a deep love for music, traveling, good food and cooking (Vegetarian for Jan) and, hiking. But their favorite pastime is spending time with their two beautiful granddaughters Annabelle and Zia, born to their son Jacob and wife Mindy.

Jan and Roger also had a daughter, Abby, whom tragically passed away in a scuba diving accident while completing a medical rotation at Hillside Health Care International in 2005. Hillside provides free medical care to the people of southern Belize. Abby was a fourth year medical student from Indiana University School of Medicine. Riley Hospital for Children awarded her an honorary pediatric residency as it was her lifelong dream to become a pediatrician and to devote a part of each year to mission work in under served areas of the world.

In Abby's memory, Jan, Roger and their son Jacob alongside the support of many in the Columbus' community raised the funds needed to build Abby's House to serve as a dormitory for volunteers helping out at the health center. Abby's House opened its doors in 2008. When in full use, Abby's House will house 16 care workers.

Jan was recommended to us by Don at the Columbus Visitor Center. She agreed to meet with us the same day as our first visit to Columbus for home shopping. Her knowledge of the Columbus market impressed us. She understood clearly what we were looking for in a home.

Very satisfied with the degree of communication with Jan. As we were coming from out of state, communication was a high priority for us and she exceeded our expectations.

Jan went above and beyond the call of duty… She helped us before, during and after the purchase of our home…
Jan Brinkman | Buyer Rating
April 2021
We contacted Jan over two years ago when we first considered moving to Columbus. Jan kept contact with us over the next two years just letting us know she was keeping her eyes out for the "perfect" home. She kept refining her understanding of our needs and preferences. When Pintail was coming on the market she recognized that it would potentially appeal to us and meet our needs.

Jan was timely and thorough in communicating with us in evert step of the process. All her communication was pertinent and apt. She is extremely knowledgeable of the community.

Jan Brinkman is a most professional and knowledgeable real estate agent. She cares that her client's needs are met well and strives to achieve this goal. Her experience shines through. Jan is a gem!

My sister-in-law recommended Jan and I looked her up and she seemed to be a real pro and incredibly experienced. She turned out to be the absolute best and we could not be happier with our choice. She's such a lovely person as well as a fantastic realtor and we hope to see more of her in the future. Stellar experience!

July 2020
Cannot express how awesome Jan is and was during this whole process. Keeping composure in stressful times. Also, making sure to get me the best rate sale price for the area. Ethical, trust worthy, dependable, prompt, are all things that describe her and she does easily. Really impressed and understand why she is as good as she is at her job!

Jan is a true go getter and straight arrow. She understands the market so well and really goes all out for whomever she is representing (the seller in my case). Jan and I had a very unethical and unprofessional buyer's realtor that we were dealing with, trying to falsify claims on the house we had listed, and when these claims were proven without a questionable doubt and provided to the buyer realtor, Jan did everything to ensure that I was protected.

The real impressive thing is that the house was on the market and was off the market in 12 hours with an offer! Would highly recommend Century21 and especially Jan for your real estate needs. She is also my buying realtor on the house we are building and will be completed soon :).

Thanks for everything!

April 2019
Jan Brinkman has obviously been doing this a while and knows the business well. She is professional and personable at the same time. From the signing of the agreement to represent us through the negotiations and closing with the title company, she was on top of all details. She kept in touch with us regularly with market details, what the showing results were and continued to encourage us when things seemed to be moving slowly. If we had a question or concern, she replied within the day, and usually within a couple of hours on the same day. During the final days of signing the sales contract, Jan helped us negotiate a better price when there were two potential buyers, making it a win / win for both us, the seller, and our buyers.

We were both very impressed and pleased with her availability, her handling of the sale, open house, and making sure everyone was on the same page for the appraisal, home inspection and closing. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in Bartholomew County and surrounding areas.

Jan is skillful in helping either the buyer or seller work through the selling or buying process. Even though we have bought and sold several homes, it is several years apart. Each sale and purchase has had different issues come up. Jan's experience helping her clients understand and work through those unique issues enables her clients to sell or purchase their home.

Jans use of professional photography really made the difference on getting traffic through the house. The pictures showcased the assets important to buyers. We were very pleased at the response to our listing.

Jan has such a good reputation in our local market. Her marketing plan is unbeatable.

Even though Jan and I both were traveling during the process she made clear plans to communicate and keep us informed.

The office staff was always accommodating and friendly.
Jan Brinkman | Seller Rating
November 2017
We felt very confident in Jan's ability and expertise. Our only concern, early on, was that the first week and a half that our house was listed, there were no photos of our house or property. This was not the fault of Jan directly, but we felt it hindered the initial advertising.
Jan Brinkman | Seller Rating
October 2017
Jan had been most helpful when we bought the house so I knew that I was going back to her when the time came to sell it. I was not disappointed. We had an offer 24 hours after it was listed and things went smoothly throughout the whole process. Thanks Jan

Jan is high energy, dedicated and very pleasant. She also is one of the most knowledgeable brokers we have ever worked with ... we have had 12 homes.

July 2017
We have known Jan and worked with her for quite some time now. We knew we would ask her to sell our home this time, as well.

As I said before, this turned out to be a lengthy process due to a complicated negotiation under difficult circumstances which, eventually, fell through. She did a great job keeping us up to date and guiding us through the onslaught of demands. I know her patience must have been sorely tested, as was ours, but she remained very professional and helpful.

I'm sure there are many wonderful realtors out there, many of whom we have met, but Jan has just had that special something that she shares with all and we are happy to have connected with her early on.

The house is sold, all is well, and we have a lovely lady to gladly call our friend.

Sincerly,

Tim and Gwynn Ostrander

Jan knew the area we wanted to buy in- a fairly small market- and did a great job of getting us there (sometimes early.)

As first-time homebuyers, my boyfriend and I contacted Jan Brinkman because we were very much impressed with her level of experience and her customer service-based philosophy. From the beginning, Jan was very responsive, friendly, and approachable.

We appreciated Jan's sincerest attempts to get to know us in our search for our new home. Her communications throughout the process were very timely, informative, and professional. We were very impressed by Jan's vast knowledge of the Columbus area and the market in general.

We were incredibly grateful for Jan's thorough attention to detail from the initial stages of our search until after the closing. Jan was always available to answer our questions, provide advice, and inform us on issues, of which we had no prior understanding or knowledge. Through her expertise, Jan made us feel comfortable with the home-buying process and confident in the decision to purchase of our first home.

Overall, we were highly satisfied with our home-buying experience. Jan has our utmost respect for her wide knowledge base, expertise, and professionalism and our highest recommendation for her great service, care, and attention to detail.

Jan Brinkman was exceptional in helping me and my sister sell our father's home after he passed away. My nephew, a realtor in another city, recommended Jan and even approached her to see if she would help us. Jan got back with us almost immediately; and from that point on, she did all she could to make our experience pleasant and stress-free. She offered invaluable advice on what to fix and what to leave as is, enabling us to concentrate on preparing the house for sale in a timely manner. She guided us through the bargaining process and, in the end, found a buyer who offered a price we could all agree upon without a hassle. We would definitely recommend Jan to anyone selling a home in the Columbus area. Thank you so much!!

Jan worked with Mandy and I in a way that was professional but also personal. Mandy is easily filled with anxiety when she has a hard time understanding all of the paperwork and logistics.
