Whether you are buying or selling your home, you won't find a better realtor than Jill Armstrong. She helped me purchase a condo for my daughter to attend UI, and took care of every detail from negotiation, to paperwork, to arranging for repairs and having someone be at the condo during the repair. She gave me great peace of mind since I was out of state. She even agreed to hold on to a key for me after closing in case I needed anything.
She was so great with the buying side that I asked her to represent me as the seller on my next transaction. Jill brought a comprehensive, bound booklet prepared exclusively for me and my home when she met with me to go over the market analysis. She has a lot of experience and expertise, and she knows how to get properties to sell. She surrounds herself with an awesome team who are expert at handling paperwork, staging, photos, etc. Jill, Jackie, Molly and Josh handle all of the details so you can sit back and relax. I didn't even have to go to the closing. The feature sheet was awesome, and your listing gets its own website. My place sold in 30 days.
Jill also has contacts in other areas of the country, and recommended another awesome team for me out of state. Whether you intend to buy or sell locally, or just need a referral, I absolutely recommend you call Jill Armstrong.
Jill was an outstanding agent and I attribute our first home purchase to her knowledge, expertise, and skills in helping us to search, evaluate and negotiate on a final property.
I tried other agents in the area and none had the expertise that Jill had.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jill to anyone interested in buying a home in the area.

We listed our house with the Jill Armstrong team, and had an accepted offer within 4 days! When the appraisal came in lower than our agreed upon price, Jill and her team wrote letters and convinced our buyers and our buyers' agent to write letters to the appraisor which resulted in the appraisor ammending the appraisal to our agreed upon price!
We highly recommend the Jill Armstrong team to our friends and neighbors!
Simply the BEST! I strongly recommend the Jill Armstrong Team for you. I just sold my house in Coralville. Jill and her team's services were truly impressive. They were always available for communication, honest about the processes, and very knowledgeable on market situations and implementing strategic marketing tools based on them. Selling my house with Jill was not like working with one agent, but working with a professional realtor team. Jackie, Kellie, and Josh including Jill are all licensed realtors working for you and they are the ones making the Jill Armstrong team truly unique and facilitate the selling or buying processes with high quality services. I've never seen this kind of effective and efficient realtor team. Are you to buy a house or sell your property? If so, go with Jill and her team. The Jill Armstrong Team is the ONE for YOU.

Very professional team! A great experience and very easy to work with Jill and her team! Jill has great ideas on the improvements; I would listen to her suggestions, because at the end everything will pay off! I thought that selling a house will be stressful, but this was one of the least stressful experience I ever had to go through! I would definitely recommend Jill Armstrong as your super experience, exciting and full of energy realtor!

Jill was a full service agent. Her team is excellent and always available. Jill meet with us before listing our home and was very honest about changes that needed to be made and what starting price we needed to list our home at. Once all of our changes were made, she meet with us again and listed our home. In previous years, we tried two other Agents with little success (and showings). Jill sold our home in 26 days. I would highly recommend Jill to anyone buying or selling.
Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in North Liberty, IA.
Jill Armstrong and her team provided excellent customer service and guidance throughout the process. I am confident that we sold our house more quickly and for more money with Jill's assistance. She used a variety of marketing methods and staged our vacant home with furniture and other decorations to give prospective buyers a more favorable impression our house. Despite my being out of state, Jill kept me informed and took care of every detail, from listing to closing. Over the years, neighbors and colleagues have sung Jill's praises, and she did not disappoint. Her reputation as one of the best realtors in Iowa is well deserved. I recommend Jill and her team without reservations.

Jill Armstrong and her entire team were amazing to work with! We have bought and sold a great deal of real estate and could not have been happier or more impressed with the service and responsiveness to the entire team. They have selling real estate down to a science.
Listen to Jill's suggestions on staging your home and you will be out of it before you know it!
I want to sing the praises of Jill Armstrong (realtor in Iowa) and her team! We put our house on the market a year ago with another agent who sounded great on paper etc. but got basically no results.... Over 30 showings and not even a low ball offer. We finally decided to switch agents. Jill made only a couple suggestions to make the house look its best and she staged it like a boss! Seriously, it looked so good. It was listed for one day with her and we got a very reasonable offer! ONE DAY!!! I cannot recommend her enough. She knows her stuff, does what she promises, and gets the job done!

Several friends suggested I consider Jill to represent me in the sale of my home. She'd helped them in selling their property and they were confident she would do the job for me. Am I ever glad I did. From start to finish she provided helpful direction in preparing/maintaining my home for sale. She offered names of reputable contractors who performed quality improvements. She staged the home for the best possible showing. A high volume of prospects were the result of innovative marketing strategies. She and her team provided constant feedback and support. They were responsive to my inquiries and concerns. We became friends as well as business partners.
She helped negotiate a fair deal and took care of all the paperwork. I am happy to suggest Jill as an agent you should consider and would certainly utilize her team's resources when I buy/sell future properties.
