Ratings & Reviews

I knew nothing about buying a home. I told her I needed a place that was in a safe area and let her know how much I had to work with. She was so gracious and patient with me even though I ended up looking for a long while. When I finally decided on a home, she negotiated beautifully with the owner and guided me with all the inspections and paperwork. She worked a miracle for me. I would recommend Jill to anyone knowing they will be taken good care of her. Now, I have to let you know that I have grown to care about Jill as a human being and ask that anyone who works with her to treat her with the respect she deserves. She knows this area better than anyone else. I now have a home that is in a beautiful area, was a great price (thanks to her), and know that I would use her skills again in a heartbeat.

Bought a home in 2012 in Spenard, Anchorage, AK 99503.

Jill is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with, bar none. She was recommended to me by a friend who described her as "terrific," which is absolutely accurate. She is a highly intelligent, capable person who is a pleasure to work with. Jill is extremely knowledgeable about real estate in general, and the local real estate market in particular. She knows everything about Humboldt County, and I do mean everything, as her family has been here for multiple generations. She is well-versed in real estate law, both state and local, and so can provide solid advice regarding the suitability of a piece of property for a particular purpose. The woman is tireless, and did not blink at looking at houses with me for a solid two years before I bought my home, remaining bright and cheerful throughout. It was Jill who found the perfect house for me, taking me to see it before it was even officially on the market. She is a master at matching people with the perfect home, and she sure did it for me. Thank you Jill!!  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

Jill Macdonald is very knowledgable in real estate and works diligently with the seller, buyer, inspectors, appraiser and mortgage lender to ensure that everything came together in a timely manner, and everyone was properly and truly satisfied. Her negotiation skills, expertise and responsiveness were excellent and second to none! Jill Macdonald in our opinion is highly recommended and the best!  More Less
