Jill has been in real estate for over 16 years, as an agent, then broker, and investor. She has been living in the Sarasota since 1976, originally from Buffalo, New York and currently lives on Siesta Key.
Upon graduation from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she earned a Chemical Engineering degree, she worked in the petroleum industry for years, moving back to Sarasota in 1996 to avoid the cold winters she didn’t like. She found that there are few Chemical Engineers employed in the Sarasota/Manatee area, so she reinvented herself in the real estate industry. She found her calling working with real estate investors. Her systematic approach to property management is a direct result of her engineering background. It is all just a numbers game, which she approaches with client profit maximization in mind.
Her main focus in any transaction is putting the customer first. She attributes her success to the combination of knowledge, expertise, honesty and integrity, and believes communication is a key element to every experience.
Her ability to be a trusted guide throughout the real estate investment process, from finding an investment to negotiating the best deal to managing the property, has led to many delighted clients who happily refer their friends and family. Her expertise as a property manager and investor has helped her clients get their money to work for them in the market. In a buyer’s or seller’s market, real estate has proven to be a sound long-term investment and Sarasota is a strong, desirable rental marketplace.
During her leisure time, Jill enjoys playing tennis and spending any time outdoors, including walking, biking and sailing. Her greatest accomplishment is her son, Ryan, who currently having the time of his life spending all her rental income in college up in Chicago. Hopefully not for much longer!
