My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Pittsburgh real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.

      Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Swisshelm Park, Pittsburgh, PA.
      Jill and Mark Portland work as a team and are very effective in viewing homes and working the negotiation. Mark goes out of his way to ensure questions are answered satisfactorily. Very pleasant experience of buying a home through them. I highly recommend using them.

      Bought a Townhouse home in 2012 in Squirrel Hill North, Pittsburgh, PA.
      I worked with Jill to buy my first home in Pittsburgh. I was a first-time buyer, so I had a lot to learn, but Jill was great with explaining how the process worked, and she was always available to answer my many questions. Being new to the Pittsburgh, it was wonderful to work with someone so knowledgeable about the neighborhoods I was looking in. She gave her honest opinion about the homes I saw without being pushy. When I found my perfect home, Jill's good advice and negotiation skills helped me outbid another offer. I would definitely recommend Jill to anyone buying or selling their home!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $275K in Squirrel Hill South, Pittsburgh, PA.
      Jill is respected internally by brokers and agents, as well as externally by the public.Whether you are buying or selling, Jill is the agent for you! She knows The East Hills better than any other agent. Now second generations are asking Jill to assist them in finding a residence of their own. Jill takes the time to sit down and listen to your needs, assess those thoughts and sets out to provide the best experience (buying or selling) that you'd ever want to experience. Home buying is probably the least favorite thing I enjoy to do, but Jill made it enjoyable!  MoreLess
