"We loved working with Jill! Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to move to Westfield/Scotch Plains/Cranford area. She helped us narrow down which area of town we thought would fit best for our family. We were able to review houses before they hit the market which was super helpful. We are very pleased with our house in Westfield. Thank you Jill! "

  -Jenny Seckler, 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"

Thanks Jill. "

Awards and Designations

Having grown up with my grandmother and mother as realtors, the thought honestly never crossed my mind that I would follow in their footsteps. I graduated Cum Laude from The University of Hartford's Barney School of Business with a degree in Business, specializing in Marketing. My desire was to be in retail so I took a job with Lady Foot Locker in their management training program. I loved interacting with people but realized that this was not a forever career. I left the industry and embarked on a new career in Marketing and Promotions for consumers and the trade. Having worked for several agencies on many exciting consumer and trade accounts as well as working in business development, I honed in on my creative talents and strategic marketing abilities which I would further develop and incorporate into my chosen field. Then in 2002, the opportunity presented itself and with the encouragement from my husband, I decided to make a life altering career change where I would never look back!

I hit the ground running and was awarded the Rising Star Sales Award in 2003 having been in the business for a full year. I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with so many people which has allowed me to achieve so many accolades throughout my years in the real estate industry including Sales Agent of the Month, #1 Agent in Scotch Plains, # 1 Agent in Fanwood, inclusion on the company's TOP 50 list of Individual Agents in both GCI and Units throughout my career and:

Testimonials

"Jill not only helped us buy our house, upon recommendation from a friend, but she also worked with our friends who bought and then sold a house nearby. What I liked most about Jill - especially moving from the city and coming out on the weekends - is that she clearly knew what we did and did not want and didn't waste our time. While I kept sending her listings, she knew more about the house and the area and would tell me what was good or not good about it before coming out to see it. It was an incredibly efficient process, and looking back on it, I would not have changed a thing."

"Jill was exceptional! She always took phone calls and followed up. She handled our real estate needs like a pro. She became an important part of our family. "

"Jill is an excellent real estate agent. Unfortunately, when we were selling our home we found an underground oil tank that we were not aware that was there. She was always there for us and helped expedite the process. This removal usually takes months. With Jill's experience and persistence, it was done efficiently and quickly. Did I mention Jill's marketing ability? She kept us focused thru this nightmare and advised us how to sell our home. She also did an outstanding job staging our home which made it an irresistible home! I cannot thank Jill enough. I always recommend her highly to everyone!" - Sharon and Eric

"Jill is extremely knowledgeable of the area as well as the variety of home styles available. She understood exactly what we were looking for (e.g., type of home, price range) and constantly sent us new inventory. When we found the house we ultimately wanted, she was able to get us in to see the 
home right away and coached us through the offer process as it was a highly sought after property. Jill has always been willing to help us locate service providers, especially since we were new to the area, and continues to be available should we need any advice. We highly recommend working with Jill."

"We thought we had left something in the house that was screwed to the wall after the closing. Jill was extremely accommodating working with the other agent and new owner to get it. She went above and beyond the call of duty in serving my real estate needs." Jeannie and Brian

"Jill provided excellent referrals." - Wayne and Grace

"I would highly recommend Jill to a friend or family member and definitely will use her again!" Ann and David

"Jill Skibinsky was excellent all the way through our sale and purchase of a home. She didn't miss anything, and she was very courteous, kind, patient and helpful always. She is the best!!!

"I could not have had a better person to help us find our home. She knew the area inside and out, was completely professional, yet managed to be very friendly with me, my husband and two children. We had the children with us every time we looked at a property, and she was great about it. I've already recommended Jill to a family member." Gail and Danny

"My husband and I were thrilled with our personal attention we received from Jill. She was very attentive to our needs/concerns and took the time to really get to know us and what we were looking for in a home. She provided us with information about the community, tips on where to shop. contacts, etc. The result: She found us a house that had everything we needed plus everything on our wish list. More than we ever expected! Thank you!! We love our new home." - Scott and Meredith

"Jill is the best in the business. Very patient, honest and helpful. She understood our needs and budget and helped us find a great value in a difficult and competitive market. She was involved in every process. Even helped with the radon remediation coordination." - Dan and Jen

"We hired Jill the day we found our home and we were able to put a bid on the house that day - she stopped everything and started working for us immediately." Lisa and Kevin

"We were referred to Jill. Jill was always available despite giving birth in the middle of the sale." Marc and Tara


"We wanted to pass on our experience with Jill Skibinsky: It is our absolute pleasure to provide comment on our time working with Jill Skibinsky over the past several months as we actively searched for a home in the Scotch Plains/Westfield area. Throughout our 10+ month search, we were faced with several unique situations, during all of which Jill was able to demonstrate her expertise not only on the process, negotiation but commitment to client service without exception. Jill was truly an expert on the area, continually providing insight on the current and upcoming inventory all while being consistently responsive, patient and accommodating; all of which made the search for our first home that much more pleasurable and easily navigated. We are now happy to say that we are now settling in to our new home. We have already and will continue to recommend Jill to our friends and family that are seeking real estate in the area as we know they will be in good hands!" - Ashley Dave Provenzano
