" Jill is a true real estate professional! We bought our first condo with her, without knowing her personally. When we wanted to sell & buy a house in the city, I wouldn't trust anyone but her!"
- Josh & Amy Kell

"Jill is an exceptional real estate broker. She is incredibly effective both in locating properties that fit her customer's needs and in negotiating the sale of properties for clients. She found and negotiated our purchase of two properties in a wonderful neighborhood. Then, when the time came to sell, she sold properties quickly and at full asking price. Jill always puts her clients first, and we count her as a close and trusted friend and advisor."
- Doug and Amy Poland

"Jill displayed tremendous innovation and feel for the market in selling a condo that had sat vacant for over one year before she was hired. A true professional."
- Dennis and Melissa Kelly

"This is the second house Jill has sold for us as well as the second house she has found for us to buy. For both sales (10 years apart), she priced them right and sold them within a week for top dollar. Her advice on fixing things up for sale was right on target. On our purchases, she listened carefully to what we wanted and found our ideal houses (a townhouse 17 years ago and a house this year) right off the bat. We recommend her highly!"
- Irv Faber and Paula Litt

She is truly a professional who knows how to service her clients very well."
- Josh and Amy Kell

- Sarah Schrup

"Jill and Sara were wonderful. Not only did they have all the right advice on how to best show our place, but they gave feedback for every showing. Jill's knowledge and experience really was invaluable and made all the difference in the sale. Once we had competing offers, she handled the negotiations brilliantly with no stress on us."
- Meredith and Ed Park

- “Jill was wonderful to work with. She knows our neighborhood so well that we felt we knew realistic prices before we walked into even the first house. We were very particular about the location into which we wanted to move (6 square blocks), and we were willing to wait awhile to find something. Most Real Estate People want to sell something fast or move on. Jill understood our situation and just kept an eye out for us, even though it could have taken a couple of years. We’d use her services in a heartbeat.”
- Bill Faude & Julie Michaelson

“Coming from the service industry, I sincerely appreciate excellent customer response which is exactly what I received from Jill.

- Keith M. Douglas

“We have worked with Jill in the purchase of two homes (one 2 flat) and the sale of one. I could not recommend her more highly. She’s diligent, responsive, and knows her stuff.

"Jill worked hard to sell our townhouse in a cooling market & was proactive with suggestions to keep showing activity up. She was very helpful in addressing concerns that came up after the home inspection, arranging for tradesmen to come in & give opinions on work to be done & keep negotiations with the buyer moving."
- Steve & Nita Savage

"We were delighted with Jill and would be happy to serve as a reference."

"If every agent had the same level of service, guidance & professionalism all deals would close smoothly. We were very impressed with not only Jill, but Sara as well. You've made us believers on how much value an agent can add to the process."
- Anu & Nidhi Singh

"Jill was a real pleasure to work with - showing the area, different options and listened to my feedback and concerns. she is a true professional - knows the business and market very well. Jill’s assistant Sara is also a pleasure to work with and is very good on follow up. I would certainly call Jill on my next sale or move. Highly recommended!"
- Jeannie Sticher

"We have worked with Jill on the purchase and sale of several properties over a number of years. There is a good reason for this - Jill delivers. We owned a condominium at 1212 N Wells. As a result of work changes, purchased another condominium in Deerfield IL. Owning two properties we needed to sell the Wells property quickly. The difficult issue is that the old town neighborhood had an excess inventory of condominiums available for sale. In fact our building had twelve units for sale including two others with the same floor plan. Not only was Jill able to sell our property on our time frame, she was able to get the price we needed. This was completed prior to the other units in our building selling. In a soft market she was able to sell quickly. These results are consistent with all our dealings with Jill.
We can’t thank Jill and Sara enough for their professionalism, hard work, and advise. Thanks to them, we enjoyed a great living space and they accomplished our real estate objectives.
We strongly recommend Jill and Sara for all your real estate needs."
- Roy Peterson and Dawn Carlson

"Jill is a consummate professional and expert on the Lincoln Park / Lakeview Real Estate Market."
- Eric and Sharla

"We sold our house in less than a week for our asking price !! Now that is marketing results!"
- Richard and Caley Fish

"Having both bought and sold with Jill, I’d recommend leaving the negotiating to her. She was able to close deals when I thought it was impossible."
- Jim Rakowsky

“Jill was quick to survey the property, suggest a price higher than we initially thought she would and then sold it within 2-3 weeks. we were amazed and grateful! My next-door neighbor had sold her property within two years of mine, but her broker rarely showed the apartment and it sat on the market for over 6 months. We would highly recommend Jill Peet Saponaro!”
- Anne and David Buffo

“Jill was knowledgeable and experienced. She was also very patient yet straight forward. Sara was also knowledgeable, organized and on top of things. With the two of them on my side, I felt more at ease during the process. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy.”
- Nancy Maldonado
