About Me


An Indiana University graduate and formerly from the Chicago area, I specialize in the sale of new and existing homes in the Lake Norman region and beyond.

Prior to becoming an agent, I worked in sales and marketing for Fortune 500 companies where I realized that success comes from being  an expert at discovering my clients needs and executing a customized plan for them.

I left the corporate world to indulge in my passion for real estate and for the past 10 years, I have bought, sold, renovated and built homes in North Mecklenburg area.


Why I Am Different


Leveraging my experience as a top producing  salesperson, I am known for outstanding client service, 24/7 availability, personal touches, and as a skilled negotiator with my clients best interest at heart. I believe strongly that it is not only my duty to represent my clients to the best of my ability, but to also educate them with the most relevant information and market insight, so my clients can make the best possible decision.

I am honest, hardworking, and knowledgeable about the real estate market, with bonus points on construction and renovation work. I can visualize the potential in a house, and help guide you into turning it into your dream home.


In My Free Time


I have been blessed with living in the Charlotte area since 1992 and currently live on beautiful Lake Norman in Cornelius, where you will find me on a boat watching the sunset.

I have two amazing sons and  spend much of my time on a field watching lacrosse. I am an enthusiastic member of the community and enjoy hiking, Concerts on the Green, cheering on the Panthers and showing clients the best that Charlotte has to offer.

Loved working with Jill. She checked in regularly with us and really understood our needs and interests. She was prompt, helpful, knowledgeable of the area/house prices, and was a great support as we navigated all that's involved in a house purchase. I will definitely use Jill as a realtor again and have already recommended her to others.

The Vitals
As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
