Without being there to oversee any of the process, we relied solely on our broker. Thankfully, that broker was Jill Buckley, her patience with us along with her knowledge and expertise in the area put our minds at ease. We went in with very specific goals and questions, all of which were exceeded. Jill was firm with her opinion but without the hard sell that usually comes with an opinion. She never made us feel as though we had to make a decision, we never felt forced. She worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we got to where we wanted to be and made sure that it was what we wanted, not what she wanted. I doubt that we could have found a better broker for the job.
We love her incredible energy and passionate knowledge of the Chicago city market. She knows all the condos/coops well, is extremely insightful about neighborhoods and values, and really drives the process Jill is accessible and responsive. We Highly recommend Jill Buckley.
Of course, we wanted to do both immediately. Jill said she would love to assist, but wanted to give us news that she didn't think we were going to want to hear and she was right! She told us NOT to buy or even look at a place in the suburbs until we had the condo well into the sold cycle. Well, that wasn't what we wanted to hear, we wanted to forget about the condo, and go do the exciting part, look for a new place to live. However, as we had retained a professional to assist, we took her advice, and as we learned along the way, it was always good to do that! The process was longer than we had hoped, but the result was SO much better. We sold the condo, and then could work a deal on the new place without contingencies...we did OK on the condo, but in this market we did GREAT on the price of the new house. Jill is a true professional, always thinking ahead, and advising her clients on the very best way to achieve their desired outcome. She is diligent, hard working, and most of all great to work with...she took care of everything for us on the sale of our condo, through the purchase of the new home, she found us a great mortgage broker...in short, she made a very difficult situation easy and actually fun for us. We would recommend that you give Jill the opportunity to help you make your next move!
She was direct and professional and the outcome proved her experience. We were very pleased!
Jill is a highly professional and effective Realtor and I would recommend her services to anyone seeking an excellent real estate agent.
