"Working with Jill in the past, it was an obvious choice to give her a call when we found a cute condo in town we were interested in. There was a hiccup in the transaction with the seller and Jill handled everything without burdening me as we had family in town and many festivities planned for my brothers wedding that weekend. It wasn’t until after the weekend and everything was ironed out that she let me know the situation, keeping the stress to a minimum for me. Jill handled everything quickly and professionally throughout the whole transaction. She continues to check in after closing to make sure everything is going smoothly. Her priority is always her client and their best interests. Thank you Jill!"

"Jill is the best realtor we have ever worked with. My husband and I lived in Hawaii and were trying to sell our property in Orange County, Ca. Jill was the person whom we had to rely on. She always went beyond her call of duty getting our house ready for sale and sold it with multiple offers in a short period of time. Jill was resourceful for any of our needs (e.g. finding contractors for various repairs or upgrades) and responsive to our questions or inquires, even though sometime those calls were late at night due to timing difference between Hawaii and California. We value Jill’s professionalism and would highly recommend her to anyone who needs to sell their houses."

"Jill is truly beyond exceptional as a realtor and human being. We are convinced that without Jill’s tenacious, professional & masterful people skills, knowledge and connections, our deal(s) would have never come to fruition. Her profound ability to navigate all that was involved with the sale of our home in Santa Monica, in order to purchase a Multi family home in San Clemente was indeed miraculous. Guiding us through all facets of the offer/acceptance, escrow, and 1031 exchange processes, she masterfully choreographed what seemed the impossible. Jill is a vivacious and dynamic individual with a heart of gold who we feel truly blessed and fortunate to have been able to work with. She deserves way beyond 5 stars in all categories!"

"I was referred to Jill by my Financial Planner who had a customer that had used Jill and had a good experience. From our very first meeting I knew I was in good hands. Jill listened to my needs and desires, asked pertinent questions and then shared her thoughts and knowledge. She came prepared with information about recent sales and current listings for the area I had told her I was interested in pursing. She has a positive, friendly personality with a can do attitude. Any question I had she either knew the answer to or found out and got back to me. She creates a good rapport with all those she encounters and responds to calls, text or emails in a timely manner. She checks in regularly and is on top of every new listing that may be a potential option. During escrow she was a step ahead of every task or requirement making sure documents were in on time and that the process was smooth and without complications. Along with her excellent professional manner she has a good sense of humor and makes the entire process of buying a home exciting, pleasant and easy. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting an excellent Real Estate agent who is competent, knowledgeable, professional, ethical and a good person with a positive personality."

"Jill Livingston has been an acquaintance of ours for about 2 years. She helped us find the rental we are moving out of. At the time she found us this place, she expressed her concern that based on the rents we were paying, we were paying someone else's mortgage and she really wanted to change that. Fast Forward 2 years and we are packing to move into our new home that we purchased with the expert help of Jill Livingston. The Network of Support Staff that surrounds this amazing agent is top notch. Literally, I told Jill what we were looking for and how much and the listings began to pour in. Her thorough knowledge of the area and business is pretty dead on. She is so easy to work with, such a warm and intelligent person she really knows how to take the stress out of something that should be hitting a 10 on the stress chart. Her contacts with Financing are the best. She did all the work, and trust me there was plenty of that, and in the end, we have the perfect home for a good price and the entire purchase was skillfully constructed and moved with ease through each phase. We were represented, we were sheltered and covered in areas we didn't even know to think about. Man I sure am glad she was there, because one mis-step could be major. Do it. If you are renting, just do it. And when you decide to buy, pick Jill Livingston and you will get all that you are looking for, and the experience will be something you will look back on and recall as a "good thing!""

""I’ve bought ten homes and sold eight. I currently own a home in California and a vacation home in France. In 45 years, I remember every single one of the 18 real estate agents I’ve worked with. I think that’s a pretty significant fact! It highlights that the experience of buying and selling a home can be a stressful, draining and devastating process or a smooth, professional and healthy stepping-stone-experience in life. The agent makes all the difference. I remember every agent because how they handled the purchase or sale of my home either made these life events either a stressful or rewarding experience. Jill Livingstone blew other agents out of the water with her high energy level, positive attitude and admirable work ethic. Jill was confident of her skill sets and of her added value. She captured my attention with her candor and willingness to literally spring into action to get my home in San Clemente on the market. Time was of the essence, and I knew it, and she heard me. That personal chemistry, the ability to feel heard, was important to me. Jill worked with me to set a budget for getting the house ready for market. She reviewed what she thought were critical items within that budget and asked me to trust her process. Jill took the property that my renter had left looking shabby and returned it to the beautiful peaceful haven it had formerly been. And she accomplished this in a jaw-dropping short period of time. I’ve prepared a rental property for sale myself and to get it where I wanted, it took me several months. Jill’s network of contacts and professionals was deep and wide, her personal taste was spot-on and she multitasked and filled the role of a general contractor, local real estate expert, listing agent, negotiator, interior decorator and wise sage who kept a close eye on budget while not allowing contractors to cut any corners. She was truly my advocate in every step of buttoning up the home for market. She did all this in weeks not months. Jill personally picked up items at Home Depot, unloaded them for the contractors and supervised installation of countless improvements. Light fixtures, flooring, hardware, paint, bathroom upgrades and more. I ended up doing every single thing Jill suggested because I could see the transformation happening within days and I could see that Jill was on it. I was so pleased with the finished work that when I walked in the day of the open house, I experienced a little "love it or leave it" moment. The home where my husband and daughter had lived, loved and laughed with me literally had never looked better. Once the house was bright, light and welcoming again, Jill turned her energy to getting the photographer, the multimedia coverage and open houses going. She followed leads and used the same great communication skills with the potential buyer’s realtors that she used with me, her client. Jill’s attention to detail and follow up regarding paperwork saved me hours and hours of time. When the time came to price the home, Jill’s knowledge of the area and the nuances of the community allowed her to guide me in setting the right price. I listened to what she said and I’m very glad I did. The home sold quickly and to a buyer who truly was committed from day one. Jill Livingston negotiated well with me and the buyer. It always felt that we were moving in good faith forward. I liked her ethical and fair approach. She wasn’t afraid to tell me, as the seller, where I needed to handle a buyer’s request and she wasn’t afraid to convey to the buyer where the list of requests must end. I think both buyer and seller felt heard and honored. I’ve been blessed more times than not by doing my homework and trusting my gut about the right real estate agent, but Jill’s work ethic and integrity put her at the top of the whole list. I was happy to have selected Jill as my agent because this highly ethical woman works both hard and smart."."PROVIDED BY Deborah - Seller

""I thought I would never hire a realtor to sell my property, I always thought how could they charge a 5% fee or more for simply posting an ad and bringing Perspective buyers in. When I met JILL, she first took me to several comparable homes that have been on the market for sometime, she pointed out exactly why the homes were not selling and then she laid out a program for me in detail to sell my home, along with a timeline of how everything was going to play out. I don’t have the knack of making changes that would bring my house up-to-date and refresh the entire look of it, in fact, I honestly didn’t think my home needed many updates, however I followed all of JILL’s ideas, and it turned my home around where I could not believe it was the same place. She was with me every step of the way with the contractors, whether it be the Guy to fix my window screens, the painter, the stager, the Appliance store where she got me a very good deal on a complete stainless steel kitchen package, the local flooring store that gave me a great deal on wall to wall carpet, the epoxy garage floor covering that every guy wants in his garage or her handyman to help take care of all of the loose ends. JILL has all the connections because she’s been selling property for over 18 years in her home town and she knows these vendors personally who give her these great deals because they know she will continually bring new customers into their businesses. She also introduced me to the Compass concierge loan program which I got a $40,000 interest free and fee free loan to help pay for the upgrades that my place was seriously in need of and then at closing, the loan is paid off with the proceeds of the sale of the house, that really took a lot of stress off of the process. When my home went up on the market it was sold in four days, for a lot more money than I anticipated selling the home for. JILL has a lot of listings, however, she made me feel like I was her only client, she was there for me every step of the way, she even took the time out to purchase and install some badly needed mirrors for my master bathroom, she brought her own home deco items to set outside of my front door that really gave my place a touch of class along with a welcome mat to help my perspective buyers fill at home. Looking back, I think what I appreciate JILL the most for is that I never felt alone in the process, and that helped put my mind at ease all along the path to selling my home. Thank you, JILL!"PROVIDED BY Peter - Seller

"I have worked with six realtors buying/selling properties, and not one of them could compare to Jill. I just sold my house and Jill would communicate with me daily to make sure that I was on schedule and on top of my game. She would also come by regularly to check on me and see if things were progressing as should be. She would also regularly communicate to the buyer's agent and escrow to ensure escrow was closing on time. This was huge for me because we were moving out of state and had a strict timeline. When I brought my concern up to Jill about my furniture looking old and not having the money to spend on staging, she assured me not to worry and brought in some of her stash and made my place so stink'n CUTE!! When I was stressed about selling my place with two little ones, a dog, and a cat, she helped me find a boarding facility for the cat. When I was stressed or unsure about anything, Jill would talk me off the ledge. Simply stated, Jill cares about her clients! I have had realtors who I saw one time, then every time after that a different realtor would be helping me, so I never felt like I was working with the same realtor. I would not hesitate to use her again and again!"PROVIDED BY Jason - Seller

""We have been working with Jill to become first time homeowners, and although we started off very unsure of how this whole process worked, Jill had very thorough conversations with us about what to expect during the home search. After a not so great first experience with a lender we found on our own, Jill introduced us to some of the best in the lending industry. We did our due diligence with each and found the perfect fit, thanks to her introductions!! Though we are still in the middle of our home buying process (we only just started a few weeks ago) we felt compelled to leave a review for any potential first time homebuyers who may be like us. Unsure of where to start, and who to trust... if this sounds like you, call Jill. She is an incredible agent that instantly made us feel confident in our search. We are look forward to updating this review once we close on our first home with Jill! "Jill has delivered for our family! After a few months of looking, Jill remained in our corner and walked us through every step of the way during this very competitive market. She was thorough, relentless, and focused while ensuring that we remained calm and ready to fire when we saw our future home. After finding what seemed to be the one, Jill worked with the listing agent and with our buying partners to land an offer in a very competitive area. Needless to say, we owe Jill many hugs and high-fives and our family is eternally grateful to her! We are happy to have worked with such an experienced and knowledgeable agent, and would recommend her to literally anyone looking for a property." -David, Buyer"PROVIDED BY David - Buyer
