Three words describe Jill's values as your REALTOR®, knowledgeable, dependable and honest. Her background as an educator provides you with a realtor who not only understands the local real estate market, but also with someone who knows how to ask you the right questions and provide you with the right information to help you make informed and intelligent decisions. Her own experience has taught her the importance of dependability. She knows how important it is to return phone calls and emails in a timely manner and to make sure that you get the information you need when you need it. Finally, she knows that satisfied clients are those who know that they've been treated with honesty.
If you're selling your home, Jill provides all the marketing tools that will help to sell your home quickly. She designs flyers, places signs, hosts open houses and uses the web to advertise your home. Jill is also an Accredited Staging Professional TM and, as a complementary service to her clients, provides suggestions for staging your home to help with a quick sale for the highest possible price.
If you're planning on buying a home, Jill will start with a consultation in order to ensure that your financing is in place and to match your unique needs with just the right house. She'll check the MLS regularly, insuring that you get the most up-to-date information about the houses available on the market. She’ll help you put together the best offer possible based on the best information possible, and walk you through every step of the way as you search for, find and move in to your new home.
On a personal note, Jill was born in San Francisco and grew up in Lafayette. She was a 1982 Acalanes High School graduate and a 1986 Concordia University at Irvine graduate with a degree in Elementary Education. Jill met her husband in college and was married to Tom Norris in 1986. Together they have 3 daughters. Jill is involved in her church and her daughters' schools. She loves to spend time with her family, decorate, work on her house, teach staging classes and help others. She has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and donates to needy families. She loves her job as a REALTOR® and looks forward to serving her clients with exceptional service. Her greatest compliment is when a client refers a friend or family member to sell or buy a home.
