"We have worked with Jill buying two properties and selling one. From the beginning Jill has always been honest, realistic, and friendly. Jill is very knowledgeable about her profession and keeps up with the trends. We felt very comfortable putting our trust in her from the very beginning. She advocated and hustled hard to help us buy our dream home. She was easy to reach and always available to chat with us about our questions. She was honest with us too when we went to look at properties on whether it was a good fit based on what we described our dream home would be. When we found our dream home, she hustled to get all the paperwork and offer in and helped us to be the most competitive client we could be and it worked! Jill also brings a personal touch to her profession because she listens to what her clients want and makes sure that we don’t waste our time looking at properties that doesn’t have our “dream list”. We would send a Zillow and she would dig into the properties and follow up with us on what we liked and when we asked her opinion, she was honest and transparent. This helped us save time with looking at properties. I would trust Jill with any home I sold or bought. So much, I recommended her to my best friend at work to help her find her first home. My friend was looking for someone who was knowledgeable who could help her understand the process since she didn’t know much about buying. I told her Jill was the perfect person to walk her through her first home. Her ability to explain things clearly, put the clients needs first, advocate for them in offers, always be reachable, and the way she hustled to make sure you were competitive were why I recommended her to my friend!" -Sam & Lisa S.
"Jill went above and beyond for us. She was super responsive to our every need and question. She genuinely made our experience enjoyable!" Tricia M.
Jill is amazing! This is the second real estate transaction we have done with her, because the first time was so smooth & easy, we couldn't imagine using anybody else the second time around. Jill spent so much time talking us through the listing/selling process, helped us get the house ready to list, and calmed our nerves pretty much every day until the deal was done. She is calm, cool, and collected no matter what is going on behind the scenes. She truly represents and cares for her clients. We would recommend Jill to anyone who is looking to buy or sell! She is a gem, and we really treasure her. BONUS: She even held our baby during the closing so we could sign papers. She is incredible!!!
It is this time of the year to reflect on what’s important and to have a heart of gratitude for others. As we reflect personally, we want you to know that we are truly grateful for you and for your help this year with both new home purchase and the old home sale.. We feel truly blessed to get to work with such a high caliber professional. We have seen you make a difference in us as your clients. We have also seen you rise to the occasion to be the best you can be. As a result of this dedication and commitment, we now enjoy the house of our dreams which is now completely remodeled. We want to thank you for your hard work. We want to thank you for your sacrifice and dedication to make sure we get the best deal. And lastly, we want to let you know how thankful we are to get to work with you.
Best agent ever!!! You truly went above and beyond to sell our home and to help us find our beautiful new home. We love your tenacity and admire your knowledge of the market and how you represent and take such good care of your clients. I will miss you and the others being my neighbors, but I know I now have forever friends. Thank you for all that you’ve done for us Jill. We so appreciate you!

Jill is the bestt! No doubt about it. She will always be our first call for our real estate needs. It seems like she has sold half of the homes in our neighborhood, many of them several times, and she knows the market as well or better than anyone. We are 100% certain that the advice she gave us in preparing the house for sale more than covered her fee. I am sure there were times when she felt like letting our call roll to voicemail, but she was there day, night, weekends, whenever. Jill managed the buyers and their brokers very smoothly even though it can't be easy. The closing was smooth, as everything was prepared well ahead of time. The best part is that it gave us an opportunity to get to know Jill better which is at least as valuable to us as the excellent service provided.

Thanks to all our Nesbit Lakes neighbors for 24 good years of being a part of a great neighborhood. The years spent in NL have been a fantastic experience in our lives. We highly commend Jill Slone for completing our home sale at a good and reasonable price and in a very professional manner and with a lot of perseverance.

I’ve bought and sold many houses in my lifetime. Jill Slone is one of the best agents I’ve ever worked with. I bought my last house from her and then used her to sell it 8 years later. Jill is honest and fair and very hardworking. She also knows her stuff. Our home was listed while my husband was working out of state and Jill became a huge support for me and my three young boys. In any moment for anything we needed, Jill was there. Help with yard maintenance, home repairs that needed to be done, staging, negotiating contracts and even moral support were all things Jill provided. I wished I could have used her in our new location to buy our current home! Jill is a pleasure to work with and has become a dear friend.
We would like to give a big shout out to our realtor Jill Slone. Our situation was quite difficult as we had already relocated to California when our home went on the market. Jill went far beyond the call of duty of a realtor. She assisted us in finding electricians, plumbers, carpenters and painters and took care of coordinating details that would not have been possible for us to attempt long distance. She gave us amazingly wise counsel from beginning to end, always keeping her cool even when our sale took the inevitable twists and turns. This successful sale would not have been possible without Jill's extraordinary efforts. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

Our experience with Jill was exceptional! She knows the business, works tirelessly, provides spot-on advice, and helped us tremendously through the "tough" spots. We have the utmost respect for Jill, and would absolutely recommend her as the realtor of choice to our friends. She sold our house quickly, and we were absolutely pleased with the entire experience!
