Jill’s real estate expertise includes best building practices to maximize energy efficiency and healthy living in higher-end homes. Jill has earned the LEED AP Green certification through her eco-friendly perspective that benefits families and their communities, and is an Eco-Sociate™ –the premiere green designation program for real estate professionals.
Jill’s real estate niche is elegant, eco-chic living spaces built to expand energy efficiency within the home. Finding your perfect luxury home does not require you to sacrifice your family’s safety. Healthy living begins with the air you breathe and the materials you are surrounded by. Jill ensures that these aspects of your home do not go unnoticed before your transaction has closed. She has the knowledge about air quality, energy efficient appliances, state-of-the art luxury green home building materials, and green pest control to guarantee that your new home is as healthy as it can be.
Accompanying the health advantages of green living, there are tax benefits that encourage home sellers to implement green improvements (energy star appliances and windows, recessed lighting, insulation) to raise the value of your home prior to purchase --an important property asset in today’s competitive market. Jill is NAR Certified, meaning she is trained to assist you in finding and choosing properties that are built with green specifications that will enhance your health and investment in the long term. Even your home’s location contributes to the extent of its greenness based on whether walking and public transportation are viable options. Jill’s commitment to green living does not compromise her ability to aggressively negotiate, providing you with the best transaction results possible.
