Satisfied Seller

Jill Petranek took excellent care of our home selling needs in 2017. My husband and I were very pleased with all of the work that she did to take care of us. We would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a condo, townhome, land or anything that Jill can help you with.

Concierge Treatment!

I can't say enough about Jill and Robert. Their knowledge and expertise of the market and trends is excellent. Their professionalism and commitment with their clients is superb. I've moved more than 6 times in my adult life (including with Relo companies) and this is the first time I have felt the "concierge" treatment from my realtors.

Buyer’s Advocate

I had a great experience working with Robert. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a new home. He is a true professional, had great local knowledge, great responsiveness, and his negotiation skills were top notch!
