"Jill recently helped us find a house for our son to live in during his college years. We had a very specific location the house needed to be in, but didn't know a lot about the market there. Jill helped us research true comps in the area in order to properly value the homes we were interested in before considering our offers. When Jill shows a home, it's like having a "pre-inspector" there--she is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned while showing the property each time and during the walk-through. Jill follows up on every detail in a timely manner. Working with Jill, you will know you have an agent on your side who wants to find you the perfect property for your needs. She is a dedicated and trusted agent I would recommend to any family member or friend."
