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.

Customer Feedback

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

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

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!

-Laura Turner

It was a pleasure working with Jeanne, she was very knowledgeable and helpful, she didn't want to just find a house for us, she helped us find the right house, always prompt and responsive, we cannot say enough good things about Jeanne, if we were to buy another house we would definitely seek her services again and very 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...

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!

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.

We highly recommend Jeanne for any of your real estate needs!

-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.
