Good morning, McKinney!
Today I want to introduce my dearest friend, and favorite realtor, Jill Hartsell-leader of the Jill Hartsell Group at Keller Williams McKinney.
Jill and I met 12 years ago, when Brian found a German Shepherd in our front yard. We searched for the owners for about an hour —with no luck— and had resolved to keep her as our new child when the doorbell rang. At the sound of her owner’s voice, Bella (the dog) came bounding through our house barking like crazy as to say “Mom, I’m here!! Here I am, mom!!” Needless to say, we gave the dog back and Jill and I decided to be best friends after that.
Jill moved to McKinney in 2001 and taught elementary school in MISD for ten years. In 2005 she studied to receive her real estate license—get this—because she was interested in buying a house herself and wanted to assure herself that she had the proper knowledge base to make such a large purchase. Can you believe that degree of dedication and thoroughness? Her experience revealed a passion for helping others through the process of building, buying, or listing their home.
Due to her hard work and dedication over the past 15 years as an agent for Keller Williams, Jill has been recognized as a Double Gold Producer time and time again. Friends, this means that Jill is part of the top 1% of KW agents in the entire WORLD! Yes, she is a real estate expert, but I believe this award is greatly due to her warm and approachable nature shared with each client, prompting repeat customers and referrals. She is dedicated to helping each client find a home (not just a house) where their family will thrive. Jill has a gift of hearing and deciphering her customer’s needs to which she finds the perfect solution.
“Keller Williams,” Jill explained, “has been such a supportive, integral part of my business.” Training programs created by the top producers in the company are available to all KW agents which is what Jill attributes her high-quality service. Industry-leading technology available through Keller Williams has also allowed Jill to stand apart from others. A shared cloud between agent and client provides optimal security. An artificial intelligence platform app allows tracking of probable client searches. Patented contact management software keeps Jill’s operation running smoothly and efficiently.
She has a genuine love for the McKinney community, and has coined the phrase “Give where you Live.” Her involvement in the PTA, Red Day through Keller Williams, and personal decisions to help local non-profits meet their needs are all ways Jill gives back to the community that she loves.
Friends, I can suggest calling Jill because I have experienced her expert services first-hand. She provided excellent service to Brian and me when we purchased our current home, as well as our families, and countless friends and acquaintances. When you hire Jill, you are hiring a realtor who genuinely cares about your well-being. This is the time of year we start thinking about a new house, listing our current one, investing in a rental property and the like. Reach out to Jill today by sending her an email or visiting her website.
