About Jan Fogg
Helping others has always been a core value to me for as long as I can remember. I volunteered at the library and helped tutor younger kids as a child. As soon as I could legally work, I went into customer service and hospitality and fell in love with bringing people joy and happiness and it made sense to me that my path would kick start my real estate career in 2021.
I knew that I wanted to sell more than houses. I wanted to sell homes. A place to nest and feel safe. A community where you feel like you belong. And I wanted my clients to love the transaction as much as they love their new homes. There are so many stress points in a transaction and it’s so easy to get overwhelmed (especially if you’re a first-time buyer). My goal is to ease your fears and guide you through the process by breaking things down and making it easy for you to understand and surrounding you with the best team who will do the same.
I am a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and I am subjected to a higher standard of ethics and practices than non-NAR agents. Our code is to treat all parties honestly and to follow the best practices to elevate the real estate experience. My personal ethics is to treat everyone equally and with respect. When you make a major purchase with a partner, sometimes it can feel like you or your partner are being ignored because the salesperson holds an antiquated belief that one partner holds all the purchasing power or because of some discriminatory reasons. That will not be your experience with me and my team. Unless you prefer otherwise, you’ll both get the same information, at the same time, and you’ll never feel out of the loop in your purchase.
I moved here from Long Beach, CA in 2017 with my husband when we came to visit family and fell in love with the city. We felt out of place in California where everything was fast-paced and everyone cared too much about your job and income. We found that we vibe well with Vancouver. We loved the nature, craft beers, the easy-going pace, and the people that want to know about your hobbies before your jobs. We found pockets of friends in the board game community. My husband found a tribe in the maker community. We started playing Dungeons & Dragons with the people we met. I’m the brand ambassador for Around the Couve where we highlight the best people and things in Vancouver.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you find a new home!

Frequently Asked Questions
Want to know more about me?
What set you apart from other agents?
I put you first and I mean it. Realtors get a bad rep because some push their clients to spend more money so they can get a bigger check. That’s not how I operate my business. I help you make the choices that are best for your needs and wants.
What kind of dogs do you have?
I currently have Kirby who is a 2 year old Pitbull/Lab mix. He is 60 lbs of cuddles and the goofiest dog I’ve ever met. He was found by My Way Home Rescue in the woods in Sandy, OR.
Do you represent sellers?
Of course! Contact me to find out what my marketing plan for your home looks like.
What do people not know about you?
I’m an adventurous eater! I order something different when I go back to a restaurant, and I’ll try anything once. But I don’t like pickles.
How long have you been in business?
I started in April 2021 and since then I’ve been able to help many people find their home. My background is in customer service so I’m confident that I will be able to guide you through your transaction with ease. My firm is also support by 2 of the best managing brokers in the business who each have been in real estate for longer than I’ve been alive.
What’s my favorite board game?
My current favorite is Betrayal on the House on the Hill. Nothing like seeing the despair in your friends’ eyes as you slowly pick them off one by one!
What's the first thing we need to do to get started?
Get pre-approved for your loan! We would be working with our hands tied behind our backs without it. From there, we’ll set a budget and house criteria and we’re off to the races!
What do you play in D&D?
I play a ranger gnome with a companion sheep named Dave. I also GM a campaign for a different group of friends.
What do you mean by helping me find a community?
I believe that people are happiest at their house when they also love their neighbors and their community. I have extensive knowledge of what goes on in the city and I’m happy to help you find where you can fit in.
In addition to that, I know a lot of business people and can help you find contractors for any job you need.
Where do you hang out?
I LOVE Vault 31 and their nerdy drinks and video games. I hang out in Downtown Vancouver whenever there’s a farmer’s market going on.
