Dear Jill: Thank you very much for your efforts on selling my home. I really appreciate your intelligent, artistic, and effective approach in selling my home. I will definitely refer you to my friends when they are considering buying or selling. Thank you again. -Ginger Yang

– Ginger Yang, August 2012

Dear Jill, I want to thank you so much for helping our family sell our house on Foxana in such a short amount of time! You not only lived up to our expectations, but exceeded them as well. After our unsuccessful previous realtor engagement that lasted five months, we were interviewing new agents and remembered talking to you. One of the most memorable quotes during our encounter was when we asked you why you were the appropriate realtor and you succinctly replied “Well…because I’m worth it” and sure enough, you were worth it! With your help, we were able to complete over $15,000 in renovations and put the house on the market within the month. This time was especially stressful for us because Yi was starting his new job and we were also looking to buy a new house at the time. Your role was pivotal when we were making our home renovations by helping us make decisions that would increase the value of our home in the most effective way (the carpets, countertop, paint, etc.). When we finally found our dream home in Ohio, we were ready to move all our stuff over and start our life here. However, we knew that leaving our home empty and un-staged would not be very attractive to sellers. Thankfully, you were able to loan us some furniture to stage our home for showings. We think that this made the online pictures beautiful and helped sell our house. We wanted to sell our Iowa City home in a timely fashion without compromising the value of our home; the closing of our house showed us that both things are possible (you sold our home at 95.8% of the listing price in one month!). We think that the title “Realtor” does not fully capture the nature of the services you provided. The definition of a “realtor” is someone “who acts as an agent for the sale and purchase of buildings and land.” You were much, much more than this. For us, you were our realtor, our stager, our decorator, our consultant and most importantly, a professional with the highest standard of integrity. Our family truly thanks you for your help. We hope that you and your business continue to flourish in the future and wish the best for your family! With Gratitude, Shan, Yi, and David

– Shan, Yi and David, January 2012

Jill, Just a quick note of thanks for the excellent service that you provided in selling my house in Iowa City. Not just Thanks, but WOW! You (and your whole team) are dynamos! You made it happen. From the initial consult to the closing, you made issues and seemingly insurmountable problems fade away. Despite a tough market you got it done. From listing to closing - just over two months - this during a "non peak" time when "nobody was buying a home." Not only do I recommend you to anyone I know selling a home in the Iowa City/Coralville area, but you would be my first stop if I ever have occasion to buy property in the Iowa City area. Thank you again, Jill. Sincerely yours, Arthur C Peters

"This is the second home we've sold and had Jill represent us. Our first home sold in two weeks, and the most recent home sold in four days! Jill is extremely knowledgeable about the area and trends. Once the house was turned over to Jill it was effortless for us from that point on. Jill is a great realtor with a great team and we'd highly recommend anyone in the area looking to sell their home!"

"Jill and her team did an amazing job researching my very detailed list of requests and finding me the perfect place! She went above and beyond by shopping for my shower door for me since I lived out of town at the time. I could not have had a smoother/easier experience! Jill took all the stress out of house hunting!"

"Jill is a very high energy person who loves what she does. She knows the market well and has data to support her advice and decisions about marketing and pricing. She helped us negotiate a fair price for our new home as well as a fair price for the house we sold. She works well with other realtors and her positive relationship with them makes the process go smoothly."

"“Best In The Business” are the words to best describe Jill and her team . I moved to CA and hence listed my home with a realtor and for 1 year I didn’t get even one offer. That’s when I switched to Jill . She came up with a plan , got some small improvements done , staged it to give it a fresh look and then listed the house . First day of listing , first showing and I got a full price offer . From that offer till closing the process was a piece of cake. Jill and her team took care of even the minutest of details . Highly recommended, don’t settle for rests when you can get the best ."

"Jill's team was extremely helpful in our first time home buyer's experience. Josh on her team helped us with our negotiations and was never pushy and never forced us to make offers that we were not comfortable with. We always received prompt responses from Jill and Josh. They are really great about making sure you understand the process and helped us when things got stressful close to closing."

"Jill and her team were phenomenal. Where do I start...

1. She spent around 2 hours getting to know us. Had a book of comps ready at the first meeting. We could tell she knew her stuff. She was professional and knowledgeable.

2. We moved out of state. The day we moved out, her team was ready to stage our home. They did a great job and were very friendly and professional. They made the house look modern and inviting.

3. Our house sat on the market for a while, through the late summer. Possible reason for that may be because we first listed with a different realtor based on recommendation. We listed with this other realtor at the beginning of the summer and only had two showings! We knew it wasn’t working so we called Jill back. She was ready to work—and we had showings almost immediately.

4. When there was a slow down in showings (end of summer, fall), Jill would check on the house for us and re-evaluate what we could do to attract buyers. We ended up adding landscape-it really made a difference in our curb appeal.

5. She gave us recommendations on cleaning companies, landscapers, painters, etc. She made selling a house from across the country easy.

6. And finally, when we had to close. Jill sent us all documents electronically and we were able to close without any hiccups. It was seamless.

I know I’m missing some things but those were the items that really set her apart from others.

Thank you to Jill and her Team! You guys were great! I would definitely recommend this team to sell your home."

"A true professional team. We had a hard time selling our house due to a couple issues we didn’t realize when buying with a different realtor. Jill and her team gave us a plan on what we needed to address before getting our house on a market and we got it sold!"
