"Thank you, Jill. You’re AMAZING!"
"We cannot speak highly enough about Jill Penna and definitely recommend her to be your real estate agent. Having bought and sold houses in past years, Jill is hands down the most kind, knowledgeable, responsive, tenacious, thorough and honest realtor we have ever worked with. Never would we have had a chance at purchasing our terrific new house without her especially in a seller’s market with low inventory and competitive offers. Buying a home is a huge purchase and she made the entire house buying experience very smooth and pleasant. Jill guided us thorough the entire process without pushing us to bid out of our comfort zone and at the same time working her hardest on tailoring the most attractive offer. She answered every question we had with professionalism and compassion. We have been in our new home for almost a month and LOVE it! Thank you, Jill. You’re AMAZING!"

"Extremely detailed and patient and on top of all this, she is very kind."
"Jill made our home buying experience feel like a smooth sailing in this rough SF bay area market. We are first time buyers and were guided the whole way through with such care and professionalism.
Jill understood the importance of getting us our first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. She not only got us our home, but she made the process seem like a piece of cake. She kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continues to follow up with us. I can't thank her enough. Extremely detailed and patient and on top of all this, she is very kind. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this."

"Her guidance in negotiation was instrumental to my offer being accepted."
"I tried many agents before, but Jill was exceptional because she would follow up and guide my search with market conditions. She has a vast network of brokers that inform her of new properties and price reductions before they are scheduled to happen, which gives you a tremendous edge.
Her guidance in negotiation was instrumental to my offer being accepted. She was also available all the time, and would respond extremely quickly. I can't thank her enough, and am referring her to all my friends and family that are searching in the area. Thank you Jill!"

"When it comes time for us to buy our next home, we will definitely call Jill!"
"Jill was instrumental in helping us finally buy our first home. She was very diligent and responsive and always took the time to explain everything to us. She was always very accommodating to our hectic schedules and would meet us after hours or on weekends to show us properties. Her advice was always very spot-on when it came to fair offers for a property. My husband and I didn't always totally agree on a home's fair value, but Jill put up with us and tried her best to help us win every offer we made. In the end, we won the one where we took Jill's advice and offered what she suggested. We just closed escrow yesterday and we are so excited to be moving into our first home. Thank you so much, Jill! When it comes time for us to buy our next home, we will definitely call Jill!"

"My husband and I highly recommend Jill Penna to help sell your home."
"My husband and I highly recommend Jill Penna to help sell your home. After my mom passed away, we needed to sell her beloved home of 61 years. It was a difficult time. My husband and I live in Nebraska and had only a few days in California to have a service for Mom and pack up all of her belongings. We interviewed four real estate agents and Jill Penna was the stand out. She met us at the house to assess the property. They were very knowledgeable and professional. Jill presented a detailed timeline to market Mom’s home. She was very accommodating. She came out to the house to sign paperwork and answered all our questions. Jill put the property on the market immediately, got postcards in the mail, had an open house and accepted bids all within the first week. She kept in touch via telephone informing us on how the sale of the house was going. We ended up receiving a great price for Mom’s home."

"... her friendly service and eagerness to help but without being pushy set her apart from other realtors we met with."
"No one ever goes into selling a house thinking that it will be an easy task, however Jill Penna made it as easy as we believe possible given our circumstance. We were selling on behalf of an estate in probate and we thought that would make the process more difficult, and the house from our eyes was not in the best of shape. We were sitting there thinking we were not going to get that much out of the sale and that we were looking at a long time of it being on the market. Then we met with Jill Penna, She took a look at the property and informed us of movement being made in our area. Jill took the time to explain the best marketing strategy she had in mind for our property and what exactly she was thinking she could do to up-sell some of its features and make them more predominant which would eliminate some of the worry on the condition of some aspects of the house. She took her time in making sure we were able to move all of the items from the house, provided us with valuable information in moving and disposing of items as well. She works hard to make sure your house will look the best it can for your sale. She is willing to work with you on selling and ask the appropriate questions without taking up too much time. Jill Penna worked hard and got us plenty of traffic and we were able to move our house off the market in less than a week, far above asking, which we thought was impossible. If I ever find the need to sell or even buy in the area again Jill would be my first choice, her friendly service and eagerness to help but without being pushy set her apart from other realtors we met with."

"I will certainly refer people to her and seek her services in the future."
"Jill Penna has in depth knowledge of the local market. It was a genuine pleasure having her as our realtor for the purchase of our first home on the Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area. From my first conversation with her when she responded to a Trulia inquiry all the way through the process to home ownership. She was proactive, responsive, advocated on our behalf, resourceful, and maintained seamless communication. She didn’t pressure us, and she thought about our happiness with each decision along the way. She maintained flexibility with our hectic schedules. Her perseverance, enthusiasm, and expertise proved invaluable as first-time home buyers. Most importantly, Jill brings a superb combination of passion and professionalism to her work. I can honestly and in good conscience recommend Jill Penna as a real estate agent. I will certainly refer people to her and seek her services in the future."

"Thanks so much Jill for helping me get the charming house that I love!"
"I met Jill when I called her office to view a listing. Jill was professional and pleasant and showed me the property on the same day. I liked the property and wanted to make an offer; Jill was instrumental in suggesting the offer price and helped me write the offer the same night. It was a seller’s market and there were six offers including mine. Jill went out of her way to show me two other houses just in case I didn’t get the property. I was very pleased when she called me the next day that my offer was accepted! During the loan approval process after going back and forth for days, my original loan agent told me my loan was not approved. I was discouraged and told Jill to cancel the contract. Jill didn’t give up and suggested me to see Eric, an amazing loan agent. I followed her advice and worked with Eric. I got the loan and the escrow was closed in a month! Jill is a wonderful realtor; she stayed on top of things the whole process. She was very thoughtful and even bought me a home warranty! Thanks so much Jill for helping me get the charming house that I love!"

"Jill was professional and helpful and was always available."
"It was great working with Jill Penna. As home buyers looking to live in San Mateo County with budget restraints, Jill Penna was consistent and found us our new home within our budget. My husband met Jill at an open house in January 2013 and although our offer wasn’t accepted she was able to find us another home in the same neighborhood before the house was put onto the market which helped us from being out bid. Jill was professional and helpful and was always available. I would highly recommend Jill Penna to purchase your next home."
