When Jill Friedrich was young, she was around real estate work all the time, as both her parents and other members of her family have been Realtors for many years. In spite of her resistance to the idea early on, Jill found as she got older that the flexibility and diversity of experiences that real estate offers are incredibly appealing, and she got her license and starting working with her mom. Jill worked as an elementary school teacher before moving into medical sales, so it’s safe to say she knows how to talk to and help people, but she is also an Alameda native who is intimately familiar with the East Bay, and she uses these traits to give her clients the best real estate service she can offer.
Working in the highly competitive market of the Alameda-Oakland-Berkeley area, Jill has found immense success by staying personal with her clients and applying a hands-on approach to working with people looking to buy or sell a house in the area. She takes time to talk with her clients and get to know them personally along with pinpointing their specific needs and goals, then coming up with an in-depth plan to help meet them. “I try to be as personable as I can with my clients,” Jill says. “I know how overwhelming it can be to venture into this market, and I want people to feel as comfortable and safe as possible.” Jill’s warm presence has earned her a wide sphere of influence in the area and a multitude of positive reviews from satisfied clients across various websites, and a healthy referral base for her business.
Jill finds presentation to be extremely important, and works hard to ensure that each of her listings reaches a wide audience in pristine form. She uses professional video and photography, and is especially keen on staging to bring out the potential of each home on the market. She advertises each listing across the internet as well as on several social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, to get as many eyes on them as possible.
As someone who grew up in a real estate family, Jill has a lot of innate familiarity with the inner workings of a real estate transaction. Having watched her parents conduct their business for most of her life, negotiating is second nature for her. On top of that, she loves where she lives and has a wealth of knowledge about different areas and market trends in the East Bay, and is uniquely capable of offering informed insight to clients moving into the region. Jill’s experience makes her a valuable asset to her clients, and her enthusiasm makes her joy to work with whether buying or selling a home.
In her free time, Jill loves spending time with her kids and two dogs, and continuing her long-held tradition of practicing yoga and dance. She stays busy with projects at home, and is passionate about remodeling and constantly improving her surroundings. If you’re looking for a real estate agent in the East Bay who is warm, compassionate and knowledgeable, look no further than Jill Friedrich!
