Reviews for REALTOR® Jill Buckley

Jill Buckley! What can we say—an outstanding realtor and person.

“We had a unique situation. We had purchased a home with a Villages realtor. The seller, the day before closing breached the contract.

We called Jill immediately to start looking at MLS houses. She was ready the next day to help. She helped us find a new home and worked with the Title company to get us closed in 4 days!!

What realtor can do that. Jill is an excellent communicator, prompt and knows everything Villages which was and is a tremendous help to us. She has attention to detail which made the entire process seamless.

She answers texts and calls and and was there for us with each step of the process.

Without Jill’s help we would literally be homeless. Highly recommend Jill if you are selling or looking to purchase a new home! She doesn’t disappoint!"

—Linda Kristan

Jill was the best we ever worked with!

“We cannot recommend Jill enough. She was absolutely awesome! She showed us several houses during our search and was patient and diligent in helping us find our home.

We have purchased several properties over the years in different states and worked with many realtors. Jill was the best we ever worked with! I recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell. You will not be disappointed."

A great job selling my Aunt's house...

...Thanks Jill for making, priceless, future memories for us and our families!!!

“Wow! During the 4 months of looking, visiting, reading, asking about homes in TV (The Villages®), I finally found a place that I felt it EMBRACED the feeling of, “Welcome Home”!

This house sale could not have been possible without the persistence, patience, professionalism, intestinal fortitude of my realtor, Jill Buckley…and her homemade chocolate chip cookies offered to sweetened the seller!!😁

At first, the seller was so upset about the numerous false promises made by other realtors, she CANCELED MY SECOND SHOWING!! THE ONLY house I would even consider after looking over a 100 homes in TV!! 😱 In fact she took the listing OFF THE MARKET!!! Needless to say, I was upset!!! The exhausting house hunt was back at square one!!! Knowing how upset I was, Jill called my seller, and miraculously convinced her to reconsider selling her house only TO ME!! She said, “YES”!

Throughout the buying/selling process, Jill “held both our hands” throughout the process! She was attentive to our every concern!!! I am extremely happy! I understand the seller is finally getting to enjoy her great-great grand baby in S. Carolina!!

Yep, sounds and feels LIKE we’re ALL WINNERS!! Again, thanks Jill for making, priceless, future memories for us and our families!!!"

I would put Jill and Catherine in the top 2 of any realtors I've ever used.

“Jill and Catherine did a great job for me selling my home. They have a strong sense of setting a value for a home and staging it/photographing so that it shows at it's best.

They were very quick to get the home listed, hold open houses, and have private showings.

I've sold many houses in Florida and New York over the years, and would put Jill and Catherine in the top 2 of any realtors I've ever used.

They have a very practical and reasonable approach to real estate, and I think that's what helps get a home sold. They keep you up-to-the-minute on every showing and are very strong at communicating the results of every potential buyer that comes through the home.

I would highly recommend Jill and Catherine to anyone that's selling (or buying) a home."

—Kevin Tucker

Jill & Lori were a great team in helping me sell my mom's home.

“I didn't live in the same town, and they went above and beyond in helping with questions, setting up open houses, acting as a liaison with vendors and with the buyers real estate agent.

They held my hand the whole time and I couldn't have been more comfortable and confident with the whole process. Thanks Jill and Lori!"

—Ann Wright

The result was a quick sale, under 10 days.

“Jill was the consummate realtor. She helped with staging my home and had multiple showings. Her marketing sense of my area helped me choose the best competitive price.

The result was a quick sale, under 10 days. You can’t ask for a better result than that!"

—Sue Anderson

We worked with an excellent realtor!

“Wow! From our first contact call on March 12 until we closed on April 12, Jill was so informative about the area, professional, open, and transparent throughout the process.

She is extremely communicative and was easy to reach to answer our questions at all times. We worked with an excellent realtor!"

—Linda & Michael Ostas

Jill's dedication to her clients is unmatched.

“I had to sell a house in Ocala—3 hours from my residence. We met once to write the listing. Then, Jill arranged for everything!

She handled all the preparation to show the house, set up the estate sale, was at the house as needed which saved me hours of travel. She kept me informed at all times. It was a joy to work with Jill."

—Toni Chan

They both really went above and beyond For us.

“This is the 6th house we have sold and by far Jill Buckley & Lori Purcell are the best agents we’ve ever worked with.

I know the market is hot in The Villages but they sold our house in 5 days. They both really went above and beyond For us. I can easily give them both 5 stars. I just wish they were here in WV. To find our new home. Thanks again."

—John & Flora Serafine

I would rate her five out of five stars.

“No question about it! Jill Buckley is a realtor you will want to use! Jill was a realtor referred to us back in Georgia for exploring housing options in The Villages, FL.

She was very knowledgeable about the different housing options in the Villages available; where not to go because of noise pollution: near the railroad, close to amenities, the Polo grounds, etc.

When it came time to make an offer for a house she knew the comparable prices, what to offer and what to require of the seller.

Being far off in Georgia she represented us in our absence during the various inspections. She advised us what inspection was necessary to lower our homer owners insurance. And she advised what we should require of the seller to fix in the house before closing. We granted the seller extra time to stay in the house beyond closing and she negotiated a fair rental price that reduced our purchase costs. She negotiated with the seller to throw in the purchase deal his golf cart which saved us money.

With my wife injuring herself where we were not able to attend closing, she made the arrangements to close the deal without us being there. She made arrangements for the house to be cleaned before we moved in.

From my past experiences, she went above and beyond the call of duty. She is a realtor you would want to use, knowledgeable about the area, comparables and saving you money in the transaction. I would rate her five out of five stars."

—Bob Stawarz

Jill worked hard for us during the entire process.

“You want honest, hard working, diligent, and great with communication... then this lady here is your gal!

Not only did she assist in selling our home, she showed us countless homes to buy. If we called, she was there! We found our dream home and Jill assisted us with finding contractors for the upgrades.

I hope to never move again, but if I do... Jill will be my 1st call! Highly recommend!!!"

—Chris & Judy Crider

Easy to work with & very professional!

“Jill Buckley was so easy to work with. Easy to work with & very professional! Thank you Jill!"
—Michelle Denison

She is a definitely a 5 star agent.

“Jill is absolutely fantastic to work with. She has all the answers, if not she will find it in no time.

In the last 20 years we have bought 5 houses and sold 4 and she is the best agent we have worked with.

She got involved in the complete process and was able to help us understand every part of the transaction as it was our first time buying in Florida.

I am very comfortable recommending Jill if you want to buy or sell a house and I am 100% sure you will be well served by Jill. She is a definitely a 5 star agent."

—Jean-Marc Lemoine & Carmen Courmoyer

They are smart, professional, and ultra on-it...

“I'd recommend Jill Buckley and Catherine Ann Tarquini in a heartbeat. They are smart, professional, and ultra on-it: They knew exactly how to present our home in the best light, and they referred us to outstanding contractors (Joanna with TMC handled our estate sale, and she was fantastic).

They were also excellent advisors to me as I evaluated offers on the home. They earned my trust and that's what I appreciate most."

—Kelly Bastone

I would highly recommend Florida Fine Homes Realty to anyone looking to sell their home.

“Catherine and Jill were very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and very responsive to any concerns or questions we had. At the same time, we were selling our house in Stonecrest, we were in process of relocating to a new home out of state.

Buying a new home out of state and selling our home in Florida at the same time was at times overwhelming. However, Cahterine and Jill provided guidance on the timing of putting our house on the market, professional photographs of our home for sale, and excellent guidance in maneuvering the whole process, down to the closing.

The closing on our home was professionally coordinated and handled by Catherine and Jill as we had already relocated to North Carolina. They advised us on what we needed to do in absentia and took care of the rest.

I would highly recommend Florida Fine Homes Realty to anyone looking to sell their home. Florida Fine Homes (Catherine and Jill) really came through for us."

—Frank & Nancy LoProto

She is the only realtor we would use in this world.

“Experience, contacts and knowledge of resources, our realtor Jill Buckley has it all! She successfully negotiated with the mortgage company, bank and house inspectors.

She investigated the fine print of all documents and navigated through the chaos of appraisal, survey and notaries. We are happy that all of our friends who live in The Villages® recommended Jill Buckley. She is the only realtor we would use in this world."

—Cardinal & Geraldine Brogdon

They truly are a concierge service.

“Catherine and Jill were fantastic to work with! They helped us through the entire process of selling the house, were responsive and knowledgeable, and friendly and caring during the whole experience.

We had to do several transactions at a distance and they facilitated everything, making it easy for my family. They truly are a concierge service."

—Amy Bastone

She went above and beyond anything we would have expected.

“Jill was great to work with!! She went above and beyond anything we would have expected. We will use her again anytime we need a realtor and will recommend her to friends and family!!"
—Chuck & Michelle Denison

I'd recommend working with Jill to anyone especially if you're not local.

“Jill was our buyer's agent on a FSBO and she was not only a delight but was able to navigate a very challenging seller. Without Jill, I know we wouldn't have gotten the house—especially crucial in this seller's market!!

I'd recommend working with Jill to anyone especially if you're not local. Jill did a virtual walk through for us and we trusted her opinion on the house meeting our needs and being a smart purchase.

Jill was there for the inspection, the walk through and the closing all the while providing guidance and quality representation."

—Natalie S.

It was a nice experience working with her.

“I will highly recommend Ms. Jill Buckley. I looked forward to going out to look at houses with her, she's friendly, knowledgeable in most aspects of real estate...

...and if she doesn't have an answer she will find it for you. I also liked the fact that when I called her with questions she would not delay in calling me back or texting me with an answer.

She's very active and will send me listings of properties as soon as they hit the market... and will call me every so often to find out if I have any questions... It was a nice experience working with her."

—Carlos Collazo

She was delightful to spend time with.

“Jill Buckley was an excellent agent for us. She knew the area, knew what we were looking to buy, sent us many properties to review on line.

She was delightful to spend time with. And helped us even after the closing had occurred and made certain all issues were handled. We told all our friends how great she was."

—Claire Marie Lotz

We could not be happier with her service and would gladly recommend her!

“My siblings and I were only in town for a few days to clear out my parents’ home in the Villages and put in on the market. Jill Buckley and Catherine Tarquini worked around our schedule and provided invaluable recommendations and information.

They were great communicating with us and keeping us informed.

Since all of us live in other states and could not physically be in Florida, we really appreciated Jill meeting contractors at the house.

She had multiple open houses and the home sold for the asking price we had agreed upon.

We could not be happier with her service and would gladly recommend her!"

—Barbara Huggins

I highly recommend Jill Buckley to fulfill your real estate needs and more!

“Imagine that you were lucky enough to sell your home with a pandemic on your doorstep. Next, the buyer wants to close weeks early because of those same circumstances, but you don’t have a new home!

Enter Jill Buckley, star realtor, who found me my perfect dream home in The Villages, communicating and touring the home via Facetime.

Incredible! From offer to closing less than 3 weeks elapsed.

Even more incredible! From offer and inspection to closing, Jill ensured all went smoothly despite these uncertain times.

Since I am from out of town I relied heavily on Jill’s knowledge and expertise in the real estate marketplace. She did not disappoint. Additionally, I relied on Jill for other resources to ready my dream home for my arrival.

In case there is any question, I will state very simply, I highly recommend Jill Buckley to fulfill your real estate needs and more!"

Thank you Jill for your commitment to helping find a new home.

“Moving from Puerto Rico to Florida is not any easy move. A real estate agent that can assist one with the move is really a great help. This is where Jill Buckley exceeded and more.

She provided a daily list of homes available, always available to provide answers to many questions and information needed to make decisions was greatly appreciated. It helped us with finding a new home in a state we have never lived before and the referrals helped us establish ourselves.
