From a family of successful real estate professionals I bring a unique blend of enthusiasm, exceptional negotiation skills and a personal touch to each and every client!
I am a full time real estate agent with Coldwell Banker for the past 16 years. My commitment to my clients is to provide them with Exceptional Service so that they will think of me for all of their real estate needs now and in the future. As in any business or personal relationship, I believe that trust, accessibility and knowledge are the key tools to a successful partnership. I'll gain your trust and increase your knowledge by providing the insight and tools that you need to succeed as a Buyer and Seller in today's market.
Please contact me for any information as I am always happy to discuss any of your real estate needs. I service many communities including Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Westfield, Cranford and the surrounding towns. Having grown up in Westfield and living in Fanwood, I am a top area specialist. As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. My love for attention to detail creates interest and excitement for my listings.

"I purchased an amazing home at a very popular price point in my town during the height of the 2016 buying season. Jill is a high energy, knowledgeable real estate professional who provided world class support and service. She knew not only homes currently on the market but those likely to be listed soon. She has extensive first hand knowledge of the neighborhoods in my town, and a great network of real estate professionals across various trades. She was supportive of my decision making process & gave me honest, straightforward feedback as I was putting in an offer, doing the home inspection, & navigating the high stress environment of closing the sale. She was a hard nosed negotiator & advocate for me, which I greatly appreciate. I felt like I was her top priority despite the reality that she juggles multiple clients, projects, and personal commitments. I highly recommend her for anyone buying or selling a home, and I intend to use her for any future real estate transactions."
-Lucinda Cohen, Client
"Jill helped my wife and I find our very first place together. An amazing 1 bedroom condo in Basking Ridge. We were looking for something very specific and Jill was very patient and supportive in helping us finally find it. So when it came time to sell our condo and move to a bigger home at the end of last year we of course called for her help again. Now we are living in our dream home thanks to Jill's help. She knows what she is doing and is very patient and kind. She's the kind of real estate agent you want to invite over to dinner after you find your home."
"Jill is a tireless warrior ! We were very glad to have her as our realtor - she showed us numerous houses, understood the needs of our little children who accompanied us during our house hunts, accommodated late evening hours to fit our schedule, answered our numerous texts round the clock, provided very helpful local information, and above all helped us find our dream home. Thanks Jill. "
- Hemanth Ahk, Client
"Jill was such a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge and understanding of the Fanwood/Scotch Plains real estate market was second to none and is just what we needed moving from Brooklyn. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to find a home in the Fanwood/Scotch Plains area."
-Jeremy Lugo, Client
"Absolute best! I had used two other realtors before a coworker told me his family had used Jill. She was able to understand what I was actually looking for. Jill knows the area and the market very well. Jill really went beyond what is often expected from a realtor. I would easily recommend her to anyone including my closest friends and family. "
"Not only knowledgeable and professional but presented information in a manner understandable by nonmetal estate professional. Very personable and always offered her help and assistance to us. We moved to another state before the home was sold and her help, advice and willingness to go above and beyond made it a smooth transaction. "
"The company that my Husband works for will pair you up with one of their approved Realtors which allows a significant discount on commission. Despite that fact we chose Jill because all of the homes listed for sale in Fanwood, NJ were being represented by Jill. We needed to sell our home quickly and felt that Jill was the person to accomplish our needs. She was extremely knowledgable, professional and actually, fun to work with. Jill sold our home for asking price AND negotiated the sale within 10 days of the listing."
"Jill was a dream to work with!! Her knowledge of the market and area are superb, only to be capped by her caring, thoughtfulness and attention to detail. I strongly recommend Jill to anyone looking to sell or purchase in the Scotch Plains/Fanwood NJ area."
"Jill has been an absolute pleasure to work with. She tirelessly worked with us for 18 months to find us a great home. During our initial interactions, we were thoroughly impressed by her humbleness, attention to detail, knowledge of the market & ability to present information in a simple manner. As we got to know her more, qualities that we admired her for kept increasing by the day. We continued to admire Jill for her patience, flexibility, influencing & negotiating skills and many more! Even after we bought our home, she gave us excellent references for home services. Jill went beyond the call of duty in every interaction, she is like family to us."
-Anand Soco, Client
"Jill went above and beyond to provide services selling our home, marketing our home, and providing services all along the way. She is definitely the premier agent in the area and remained calm in all situations to provide us the needed guidance and experience. Would recommend to anyone in the area."
"Jill Skibinsky has been a pleasure to work with from the start. Jill listed our old home, and helped me find a new one. She's extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of listings and sales. I definitely recommend Jill for all realtor needs. "
-sherineatta , Client
"I cannot say enough good things about Jill Skibinsky, with whom we have bought and sold three houses in the last 14 years. Her deep knowledge of our area, which is tremendous because she grew up here, is unparalleled. Jill helped us find our first house in 2003. 11 years later when it was time for us to find a larger home in the area and sell our starter home, Jill was by our side as we navigated the biggest real estate transaction of our lives. She gave us great advice about putting our quirky starter home on the market, which resulted in multiple offers and tremendous results. If you are in Westfield/Scotch Plains/Fanwood or neighboring areas, Jill is the realtor you want"
-melissaliebermann , Client
"What can we say about Jill that hasn't already been said? She was an incredibly effective advocate, negotiator, and hand-holder through the process of selling our old home in Stoch Plains and purchasing a new one. She was incredibly patient, discreet, professional, and caring through both processes. While preparing our old home for sale she provided us with the names of all of the tradespeople and stagers we would need to get top dollar for our home while minimizing additional outlay. In the purchase of our new home she encouraged us to hold out for the house that was right for us rather than paying too much for something that wouldn't suit our needs. Can't recommend her enough."
"Jill took care of EVERYTHING from negotiations to managing service repairs as we had already moved abroad. She is incredibly responsive and no nonsense. We appreciate and trust her honesty. She helped us buy and eventually sell our first home. "
-Judy Kasper, Client
"I would absolutely recommend Jill to anyone buying or selling their home! Jill listed our home and we were under contract with multiple offers in less than 2 weeks. She was very professional and personable throughout the entire process. Her attention to detail is incredible! From staging, marketing, negotiating, home inspection, and every detain till the end--she was there to guide us and make it through with smiles! Everyone involved was very pleased! "
