Tell us about your experience with Jill Carrigan

    • Whew. Six months later, I still have these moments where I reflect on what an amazing realtor Jill is and how eternally grateful we are. Because it's never just a "house" right?? It's always so much more. Our day-to-day life has completely changed because Jill was able to pull us through. Our transactions, both of them, NEVER would have happened without her. Jill truly wants what is best for your family. She's not about the easy sale that may not be the right sale for her clients. It's incredibly rare to find this quality as your advocate in real estate where the more money spent with the least amount of effort is the goal. She is tirelessly patient, honest and always available. She will be your best offense and defense but plays by the rules, therefore garnering much respect in the industry. Her intuitive, negotiating genius when crisis occurs is bar none. During the most delicate negotiations, she was able to keep the door open and ball rolling. Please take the time to read the other reviews. They are spot on with clear consistency: kind, professional, meticulous and a calm influence with expert advice. She's an amazing realtor and an exceptional person. THANK YOU SO MUCH JILL!!!

    • . Jill Carrigan is fantastic. She was recommended to us by friends who sold their Claremont Hills home. They couldn't say enough nice things about Jill and the process. What stuck out to me when we first met was her professionalism, knowledge, confidence and kindness. I immediately sensed a great energy that seemed like some fused combination of determination and grace. I felt immediately that we would work well together. Jill had little time to help us finalize the prep of our home before listing. She jumped in and took all of the stress and inconvenience out of it. She asked for a set of keys and met with all of the contractors, stagers, painters and handy men on behalf keeping the project on track. Jill's stepping in allowed us to stay at work and focus on the details associated with the new home we had just purchased. At the times that we didn't occupy the house during marketing, Jill came over, watered the plants and took care of my two cats. Jill really knew the things to do to make the marketing time more comfortable. The sale was not without challenge. It's in the issues where you see the strengths of your agent. Out of nowhere we had a structural engineer do a flip flop versus his prior report creating less than ideal disclosures and a lot of stress. Additionally and unexpectently our house went on the market with 6 other comparable homes. This wasn't expected. Things were stressful for at least a week digesting these issues and their implications. Through that entire time Jill was calm, resourceful and extremely helpful. She accessed peers and experts to help us better determine our next move. She provided her recommendation - but did not force it down on us. She gave alternatives. Her recommendation was right on. We sold with multiple offers. Jill followed it all of the way through to the end. Jill is meticulous with detail and expert communicator and a strong negotiator. She is also a warm person who really wants the best for her clients, understanding how important "home" is to us all. If you are looking for an agent in Oakland, Berkeley and Montclair - I'd highly recommend Jill Carrigan.

    • Jill is outstanding! She helped us sell our house in Montclair and buy our dream home in another part of the Oakland Hills. She guided us through and coordinated the entire process and was always available to answer questions and follow up on everything in a very timely fashion. She educated us on what was happening each step of the way, what we needed to do, and what to expect. We trusted Jill 100% because she had so much experience and gave excellent advice, which made every decision so much easier. It's more than just a job for her; she wants you to be happy and really listens and builds a relationship with you to make it a positive experience. Jill is more than a realtor, she is an honest, smart, organized, and open individual that you can trust and respect. She knows her stuff and we are lucky to have found her. We would highly recommend her as a realtor for buying and selling a home.

    • Jill Carrigan at Grubb Co., has represented us during three transactions (in the Redwood Hts neighborhood of Oakland, and in Piedmont), and I can't say enough good things about her. She is smart, organized, uber-competent, patient, calm, helpful and we really appreciate her. We've recommended Jill to friends of ours, and they've all really enjoyed working with her as well. When you are either buying or selling a house, you spend a lot of time with your agent, so we felt so lucky that we got to do that with Jill. We're not planning on moving anytime soon, but if/when we do, there's no question that Jill will be our agent.

    • To say Jill Carrigan is a spectacular realtor is an understatement...she is beyond that! Her professionalism, project management skill, eye for interior design, ability to listen and assess the needs of a client has helped us close four transactions in nine years. She successfully helped us purchase our starter to dream home and each were in competitive and/or multiple offer scenarios. A few years ago Jill helped us in a transaction where we were the sellers. Anyone who has ever sold a house can tell you it is no easy task...and with an infant, Christmas holiday and a recession economy, it was downright daunting. Jill made it happened and educated us through the entire process. We could not have done it without her. What stands out most about Jill is her integrity. She treats you with respect and is thorough and thoughtful. Working with her, you know she has your back. We have referred our friends to Jill and like us they have become fans! A&N

    • We met a few realtors before choosing Jill and I am beyond thankful we went with her. To put it lightly she made our dreams come true! Now it was not all dreamy the whole process of getting a house ready. I had a few freak outs but she was on the phone or in person to calm me down within the hour. It was our first home we were listing. We'd renovated the house ourselves. It was our first baby. Love, sweat and tears went to that house. We'd brought two children into the world in that south Berkeley home. But it was time to move on so we listed. Jill turned our gem of a house into a diamond! She has people to do everything! We were getting it ready on a budget so we choose professionals for some of the work and some we did. Jill worked with us to figure that out. She had great advice and insight on what was most important to make the house shine. And we got 11 offers. 11!!! All over asking price. The top 40% over. My heart jumped the day the offers came in. To sum it up Jill is lovely a fun smart business woman who knows the biz like the back of her hand. We couldn't be happier!

    • After meeting with a few real estate agents, I decided to go to Yelp for suggestions and found Jill Carrigan. The moment I met her I knew instantly she was the perfect person to help me sell my Piedmont home. Jill is so easy to work with, down to earth, extremely knowledgeable about real estate in the Bay area, and has great design taste. She helped me do a mini-remodel of a bathroom and helped with all the decisions regarding paint, paint colors, and updates recommended to make the house look it's best. Jill had numerous contractors and handymen that were reliable, reasonable and fast. She helped me find a great stager that made the house look beautiful. I would recommend Jill in a heartbeat to anyone thinking of putting their house on the market or looking to buy one. Jill is a true jewel!!

    • We recently worked with Jill to sell our house, and she is indeed a master of her craft. We knew we wanted to work with her the moment she first met us at our house, and immediately told us all the things we could do to optimize our listing. She is professional, sharp, and to the point. Plus, she puts in the work and hustles every step of the way. She respects your opinion certainly, but she isn't a luke warm agent that isn't sure what to do. She was precise from first meeting through closing. She has a great design taste, and even helped us to project manage a fairly sizable renovation, helping us find contractors and designers to make the project work. I have no idea what we would have done without her!

    • "Jill Carrigan is by far the best realtor I have had done business with - a great listener and punctilious communicator, pragmatic and creative, super-conscientious, and meticulous about details - the ultimate professional. She knows and understands the psychology of both sellers and buyers in this overheated market and has deep local knowledge of the area. More importantly, she guided us through the sometimes emotional experience of selling our much-loved Claremont Hills home of 15 years with really useful advice, gentle patience, and a great sense of humor.

    • "Jill Carrigan is truly an exceptional realtor. There aren't enough stars or space to truly capture how grateful we are to have worked with her as our listing agent. Not only is she an expert in her field, with an intuition about situations and people, she is also an incredibly gracious and thoughtful person who's an absolute joy to work with. Every recommendation she made - from staging to window cleaning - was matched with competitive quotes from respected professionals in the field who executed impeccably Her clear, organized approach transformed what can be a stressful process (selling a home) into a manageable step-by-step roadmap that resulted in multiple offers, all of which were significantly over our asking price!! If you are considering selling your home, or would like a market evaluation of your home- please give Jill a call
