Most people remember me by my slogan and not my name. I’m Jill Barsky, the "Pet Friendly Realtor – Finding Homes for People and Animals". That’s okay with me as I feel honored to have the privilege of combining my two passions – helping animals and selling real estate.
I was profiled in the New York Times about my penchant to help stray animals and furry friends in need. I was quoted as saying, "if I see a loose animal, we will stop house hunting and assess the situation…The joke in my office is that if you are working with Jill and you don’t have a pet – you will by the end of the transaction". My firm belief that one must give back as one gets. Part of every one of my commissions goes to an animal rescue league of the client’s choice. I also spend many hours volunteering for a number of animal-related organizations.I believe that it is not only important for me as a Realtor® to find you your DREAM home but, HOMES for other 4- legged clients as well.
When you need a Realtor® that is:
ProfessionalI provide top quality professionalism and always seek to exceed my customers' expectations.
