Don't know what she meant by "Jamis is a different class..." other than they don't sell Jamis, and she probably doesn't know anything about them. Kinda like asking a Chevy dealer what he thinks about the BMW.

If you're still open to a Jamis, find a dealer and ride one, get their opinion. IMHO, any Jamis is a great value.

Just to let you know my bias...My LBS carried Trek, it's a small shop and priced his bikes fairly. Last summer Trek pulled their bikes and gave the line to a large bike retailer. That store is notorious for running lost leader specials. They "fit" the customer to what ever size they have in stock.

Compare the components, not the brand name.
