About Jill Portland


Using All of Today’s Technologies to Better Serve You!

Buying or selling a home is no simple matter. It involves complex financial and personal decisions. That’s why you deserve top-caliber service from a real estate professional who will listen to your needs and produce outstanding results.

MarketingYour Home


It takes more than a For Sale sign in your yard to generate serious buyers, especially since 40 percent ofhome buyers relocate from out of town. It takes endless phone calls and appointments as well as technological savvy and exclusive connections.

The more buyers who know your home is for sale, the more likely you’ll sell during your prime marketing period. Using the latest marketing strategies and technology, I’ll develop a campaign designed exclusively to give your property high profile and get maximum value.

Finding theRight Home for You


Matching the right home to the right buyer is my specialty. And I make a point of knowing about many properties-even before they’re listed. To do this, I spend countless hoursbehind the scenes touring neighborhoods, researching the market and networking throughout the community. Together, we’ll investigate various neighborhoods and tour houses to help you get a solid feel for property values. Then, we’ll target your desired location and search for a home that fits your lifestyle and values. To save you time, I pre-screen numerous properties to find ones that closely match your list of needs and wishes. Then I contact the sellers and their agents andschedule showings to fit your schedule.

My Client-First Philosophy

There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.

That said, in my experience as a Pittsburgh real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.

This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
