Our experience working with Jill has been simply extraordinary. Jill’s data-driven approach to setting the price, use of the latest effective marketing tools, artist’s eye for staging and describing the property, negotiating skills, and extensive contact list of contractors sold our house at the right price quickly. She listened to us and set us on a path that achieved our goals and met our expectations for the sale, all within an aggressive timeline that we set. By following her advice we were able to attract numerous bids and find the right buyer quickly. Jill’s enthusiasm, positivity, boundless energy, problem-solving skills, thorough knowledge of real estate contract laws, dedication, and sincere interest in supporting us throughout the process made our cross-country move go as smoothly as possible. She clearly wanted to win for us. Working with Jill has been a pleasure and truly special. read less
