Get to know Jill, your realtor for real life
Working in real estate engages my interests in meeting a wide array of people and service to others while harnessing my skills in problem solving, compassion, tenacity, and naturally inclusivity. I love to hear peoples’ stories, really listening, and coming alongside them to reach their goals. As your agent, I don’t push or try to convince you, but instead get to know you and act as your advocate.
It is a pleasure to have a career that merges my natural giftings with skills honed throughout my life while offering a valuable service to others.
As an energetic child growing up on a farm in southeast Nebraska, I enjoyed freedom and open spaces. Five years after graduating from high school, I had earned a B.S. from Truman State University and a Master’s in Public Health—Epidemiology from UCLA. Once school was completed, I came back to Nebraska to marry Charlie. More than twenty years later, I can still say he is the best life partner I could ask for.
Upon returning to Nebraska, I worked at Doane University, teaching Biostatistics and Human Anatomy and Physiology. I also wrote and managed grants for domestic violence and sexual assault prevention agencies in Lincoln. Such different jobs, but both rewarding and interesting in their own ways, exposing me to a broad view of life.
I then came home full time to raise our five daughters, moved to Savannah, Georgia for my husband’s career, and then came back to Nebraska.
Once home, agriculture and entrepreneurship called. I started Olive Creek Farm, and my husband eventually came on board full time also. Embracing the hard work and determination needed, we grew our business, served the community, and sold it when opportunity arose.
Pivoting to real estate was a smooth transition. My main intention is to collaborate with you: listen to you and understand your needs, while providing the experience and knowledge necessary to wisely navigate the process. You have a full life. I’m here to serve you and protect your interests.
