Jill Wente strives to be the best Realtor® you will ever work with in Spring Texas. Here's what a few of her clients have to say.......

- Herb Gupton

Jill Wente is the best Realtor in Spring Texas. Over the past 40 plus years I have bought and sold many homes. I have not experienced a single Realtor who would be her equal. She took a property that was not moving, invested a modest amount in upgrades, and had a contract within a week of re-listing it. That's results. Oh, did I mention, she got a higher price too. She is truly a Five-star Realtor.

- John & Jennifer Oliverio

Jill Wente is absolutely the best!!! If anyone uses a different Realtor in the Northwest Houston area they are not serious about selling their home and receiving the best service. Jill completely understands the needs of the seller and knows what the buyer is thinking. We had a fantastic experience and she was always available.

- Oscar & Maren Knoeck

We definitely made the right decision when we chose Jill Wente to be our listing agent for the selling of our house in Spring Texas! She was KNOWLEDGEABLE about all aspects of the sale, and made sure we understood everything. She helped us tremendously when making some of those hard decisions, and ALWAYS steered us in the right direction! Jill went over & above any expectations that we had. We would choose Jill Wente as our real estate agent again and again.

- Robert & Lyn Bowden

When we decided to sell our home in Spring Texas, we wanted to have Jill Wente as OUR REALTOR and most importantly as OUR ADVISOR. The process was full of challenges and distractions. It was NOT an easy process. Everything was handled perfectly and professionally. The sale CLOSED in 29 days from the day it was listed. We recommend Jill Wente to everyone selling a home in Northwest Houston.

- Ovi & Claudia Rotariu
