Working With Jill Southren…
We just wanted you to know how appreciative we are for all that you have done for us. Right from the start, you made the challenge of selling and then buying a home seem effortless, and your professionalism greatly impressed us. When we first met you regarding the sale of our Randolph home, we felt that we found the ideal realtor-someone who would share ideas and concerns, but allow us the freedom to lead the way.
We were amazed that in the bad real estate market of last October, you successfully sold our home in only three weeks.
The next step became even more challenging. We narrowed down our search to Randolph, Rockaway, Denville, and Parsippany. We felt the schools should be our top priority, so Randolph topped the list. However, we were finding ourselves caught up in the “recovery” as prices went up, and availability went down. You didn’t pressure us, even though you mentioned that interest rates would be climbing. We rode by many houses, and usually had concerns about the house, road, neighborhood, price, etc.
Eventually there was a home in Rockaway we fell in love with, even though you thought it was overpriced. You even showed us comps so that we could see for ourselves that this home was not worth the money. Really, what realtor ever dissuades a person from buying? Jill, you are that kind of person, and as a result, we avoided making a huge mistake. Because we trusted you and respected your opinion, we decided that home was not the one for us. So the search continued.
Then, one day you called us to give a “heads up” on a home that you felt would be perfect for us. You made sure we were the first ones to see it, and we immediately fell in love with the house and the neighborhood, and felt reassured that Salena would be going to one of the best school systems. You knew this Randolph home would probably end up in a bidding war, since it was fairly priced and in a desirable area. With your guidance, we were able to move quickly through the initial phase of contract review. We truly believe this wouldn’t have happened as successfully with a different realtor. Again, with your experience in these matters, you suggested the best professionals to help us with the weeks that followed – lawyer, mortgage broker, home inspector, etc. We have many friends who bought their home and received little or no help after the contract was signed. Jill, you were always there for us, and we can never thank you enough.
Many people might think that Jill Southren, as successful as she is, must be too busy to take the time with every client. We purposely went on the internet to find a top realtor, thinking we wanted someone really on the ball. Since we selected you because we knew you were the top realtor, we felt you must really have the experience and know-how to be successful in what you do. Not only did you spend extra time with us, but you went above and beyond in all areas. You helped to make our dream come true, and we feel it wouldn’t have happened if we had a different realtor.
In turn, we feel that you respected us, and never tried to push a house on us. You allowed us the freedom to go about the process in a way that we felt comfortable with (which meant we always wanted to drive by the outside to check it out before we wasted our time and yours). When we did want to see a house, and usually had many criticisms, you never tried to counter our negative thoughts with typical sales talk like, “Oh, you could just fill in that pool” or “no problem, you can just add an addition.” You were always on our side, and we feel so lucky to have found you.
Thanks, Jill, for helping find the perfect home for us. We wake up each morning and go to sleep every night so happy that we now own our dream home. We want this to be our “forever” home, so we hopefully will not be needing your services again. But we will certainly highly recommend you to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell. Also, we would be happy to post a recommendation for you on any web sites; just let us know which ones, and we’ll be sure to spread the word that Jill Southren is the best!
One last word – we now think of you not as our realtor, but as our friend. We look forward to showing you what we have done with our new home tomorrow, and we can never thank you enough for all you have done for us. Fondly, Jodi and Brian.
The service and personal attention that we received from Jill Southren was exceptional. She is truly a master at her craft. Her knowledge of the local market and her key contacts in the community helped me find the perfect place for my family. Jill was great by providing honest opinions of the properties that we looked at and I really appreciated all the details that were handled during the offer process all the way through closing. Also, several years ago, we had a very challenging property that we wanted to sell, and Jill is someone with integrity that achieved a definite result & sold the property! Jill maintains a high level of professionalism, confidence, honesty and humor – she is so fun to work with! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling a home, I would highly recommend Jill for this life changing move. Thank you Jill! Best wishes to you and continued success! Patrice DeLorenzo
“After looking for a home for several months with no luck we were given Jill’s name. We had never met such a wonderful, hard working and knowledgeable realtor before. She told us that our house was just not on the market yet but when it popped up she would let us know. And that’s exactly what happened, she called and told us that she just previewed our house, we had to go see it right away. The house was perfect and of course had several bids on it. We knew that with Jill by our side we would get it- two months later we moved in to our dream home! We would recommend Jill to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, She will get you results! She is patient and helpful, keeps you calm every step of the way and has been so kind and helped us learn our way around our new town answering any questions we had any time. Jill is the best!” Melissa

“Working with Jill Southern was a pleasure and a learning experience. She is utterly attuned to her clients needs and insecurities while trying to bring her clients to the desired and profitable conclusion of the sale of their house. She priced our home well with a minimum of drama and she expertly navigated the local real estate market always keeping track of what was selling in the area and who the “competition” was at any given moment. She can recommend local contractors, lawyers, whoever you might need to help the process move along smoothly. Jill was always available for questions, (even dumb ones) a little hand holding or whatever you thought you needed. Her response time was incredible. Jill was empathetic and savvy with a great sense of humor. We’re pleased to give her the highest recommendation”. Janis and Irwin Horowitz.
