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

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

"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!"

"We interviewed a number of realtors and asked each one what their marketing plan was. One of them shrugged and one of them walked into the first meeting armed with a personalized plan in place so we didn’t need to ask the question. That was Jill Armstrong, and she and her team made the process as easy as possible from that first meeting through closing."

"Jill was fabulous to work with. She worked her tail off to get our single family home sold and moved quickly on everything. We had our house for sale for a long time prior to hiring Jill. We hired her at a difficult time of year and she still got our house sold in two months! The only reason I gave 4 stars on Negotiation skills was because she represented both the buyer and seller which lessened what she could do for us. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell!"

"Jill helped me purchase a home and sell a home. She is extremely attentive and goes the extra mile to handle everything! She also has contacts for everything that you could possibly need! Her and her team in 2 days staged my completely empty house into an extremely inviting and attractive property. It ended up getting multiple offers the day it listed."
