A n E ffect i ve and E x per i enced R ealtor

Greetings, I want to thank all of my past and current clients for your continued support. The relationships I have built with all of you and the happiness you have found in your new homes are the principal reasons why I love being a realtor and find it so fulfilling. I love how we create spaces for our clients to spend time with their family and friends in their homes. My personal commitment to helping you find and construct that space is what distinguishes me from other realtors. Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home in the DC metro area, New Jersey, or Delaware, my keen attention to detail, commitment to healthy, green living, and dedication to superior service will ensure that your real estate needs are met in a comprehensive and personal manner.

My unrivaled experience and expertise in the region’s real estate market, in conjunction with my specialties of second home purchasing and relocation services have earned me a spot as one of DC’s top realtors. I always aim to practice integrity in helping clients purchase their dream homes, or sell their homes to happy new buyers. My ethical business practices combined with my assertive negotiation skills and passion for assisting people in their real estate endeavors position me as someone with both genuine knowhow and personal interest in the success of your real estate transaction. It has been a privilege working all my clients thus far, and I look forward to helping new clients achieve their goals in the future.

As a resident of Bethesda, where I raise my children with my husband, Glenn, I have an in-depth understanding of what characterizes the DC metro area as so unique and desirable– something that complements my ability to both market your existing home and find you a new home that best suits your needs.

Real Experience. Real Relationships. Real Estate.

“For over five years, my husband and I have worked with Jill. She is not just incredibly professional and excellent at what she does, but she adds a personal element, as she understands that she is not just helping a client find a house, but more importantly– find a home. She arranged numerous open houses, explained why certain modifications were essential in the sale of our home, and most of all, helped us sell the house during a difficult time in today’s housing market. Her knowledge of the market was instrumental in that she priced the house perfectly so we not only had it on the market for a short time, but that we were happy with the price at which it sold. She was unlike any other agent we have used in that she was more concerned with helping us find our way than she was with making a commission.” Lisa Fox

Jill has the privilege of keeping company with the largest international network of real estate brokers, sellers with exquisite properties, and buyers with discriminating tastes. Her success is measured predominantly by extensive referrals from past clientele. Jill is consistently the leading luxury agent in Potomac, Bethesda, and the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Her listings portfolio currently includes 8710 Fernwood Road Estate, Bethesda MD 20817. Listed at $5,300,000, it is the only new construction mansion in the heart of Bethesda, and is gaining exposure on an international level. Jill’s success in growing her business simply surpasses most of the area’s residential real estate agents that have been career realtors. Jill has developed a business model reflective of intelligent, informed, and worldly purchasers. Her model recognizes that the use of technology is essential for the success of marketing real estate and connecting buyers with sellers. Jill’s experience delivering superior service, and her expertise in a variety of specialties defines her as one of the most successful and well-established realtors in the area. With a professional attitude, a wealth of in-depth knowledge about the local real estate market, and an understanding of the demands of an elite clientele, Jill ensures that luxury real estate experiences exceed expectations in every way.

• Over $30 million in real estate transactions in the last year • 5th ranked Long & Foster agent in Montgomery County • 3rd ranked agent in the Bethesda Gateway Office “I have had the pleasure of working with Jill on a number of deals in which I was selected as the settlement company/settlement attorney. I have always been amazed at how involved she is in the process and how informed her clients are by the time we get the ratified contract. She consistently represents her clients above and beyond their expectations and as an advocate, I can’t think of anyone better to have on your side. She is well respected in the community and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this ever-changing Washington DC market. We need more agents like Jill.” George P. Glekas, Esq. Principal, GPN Title, Inc.

• Presenter at The Best of the Best Roundtable Event during the International Luxury Portfolio Conference • Capitol File Magazine’s A-List “We moved to the DC area, needing to find a house quickly – in a nice neighborhood, near great schools. Before we opened our suitcases, Jill was on it – she tirelessly and patiently took us to a range of areas to see a variety of homes that met our specs. She even showed us some that we hadn’t considered, which opened even more options. We had a house under contract in days. And it’s exactly what we wanted. Thanks to Jill’s calm and savvy demeanor, the entire stressful process of finding and buying a house with a looming deadline was seamless.” C. Ruff Spellman

• District Home Magazine Elite Realtor • Washingtonian Magazine’s 2015 Realtor Award • Licensed in DC, DE, MD, NJ, VA

“Jill made good on her promise to deliver complete, above-andbeyond service for our aging parents in the sale of their condo, including keeping me in the loop long-distance. Sharp, speedy, with great contacts across all aspects of making the move. Highly recommended.”

“Very professional; leaves no stone unturned and thoughtfully aggressive.”
