Weekender in Waccabuc

  • We loved working with Jill. After a couple of weekends of showings, Jill knew what we wanted better than we did. We were a bit reluctant to look a listing, but Jill scoped it out for us and encouraged us to look for ourselves. Of course it was the right home for us, and Jill saw us through the bidding process and helped us navigate some hurdles to ultimately close on our house. We were very fortunate to come across Jill and would highly recommend working with her.

First Home - Pound Ridge, NY

Jill was a pleasure to work with. She worked with us to find us exactly what we were looking for. She was patient with us and very knowledgable about the area. She went above and beyond to help us find and buy our home.

Family Home in Bedford

Jill was a pleasure to work with, and was helpful and reliable through our entire home buying process - and beyond. She immediately made us feel at ease. As first time home buyers, we were able to be honest with her about what we did and did not know about purchasing a home. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and promptly, and was able to find us a home to fit our family’s needs in a timely manner. She’s well established in the community, and has continued to help us settle into our new town well after our move in date. We can’t recommend Jill enough!

Bought and sold Mt Kisco

I would highly recommend Jill Abolt and Angela Kessel! They are always up to date with the trends of the market, which made me feel confident I was getting the best deals and have excellent insight about how to increase the value of a home in order to get the best price. They sold my house for almost double the price I initially bought it for because they knew the best time to sell and the right design changes to make to attract more buyers! They are knowledgeable about the demographics in local areas and helped me find a home in Mount Kisco that checked all my boxes! I am very pleased with their professionalism and dedication in selling my home and finding me a new one!

Somers Home Purchase

We felt so lucky to have Jill as our buying agent. Over the course of our home search, we developed complete confidence in Jill's expertise on homes in the area. Everything she ever told us was spot on, and we ended up with an amazing home in an area we love. Her knowledge of the market and ability to immediate size up and articulate a home's strengths and weaknesses was priceless to us as we were buying in an area we weren't very familiar with. She supported us throughout the process and always returned our calls immediately. It was a crazy market last spring when we were buying and so emotions were running high but Jill was always there for us and really felt like a support through our ups and downs. Jill is incredibly professional and knowledgeable and is a great resource if you're buying a home.

Pound Ridge Home

Jill Abolt and Angela Kessel are just about the most FABULOUS partnership we've come across in...Forever! From the moment we started working with them, we honestly felt we had FAMILY looking out for us, which was so important during such a huge time of transition as we entered a whole new Universe of looking for a home outside of NYC. We needed some real hand-holding and are incredibly grateful for the care and guidance we received! We weren't entirely sure of precisely what we wanted and learned SO much from both of them as we went along. They always asked us just the right questions to zero in on who we were and what we needed and wanted, which we discovered along with them... Their patience was endless as our Ocean of questions kept flowing, and they were ALWAYS available and incredibly responsive. Not to mention Flexible and FUN!! They are absolutely lovely people to be around, turning an experience we were somewhat dreading into and enjoyable and positive time of Discovery. Unexpectedly, we wound up falling in love and buying a fairly new construction in Bedford, and the process was seamless, which of course was also unanticipated! Every step of the way we felt in such extremely knowlegable and capable hands, and we STILL do...!! From fencing to pool construction to housecleaning and just about anything and everything, Jill and Angela continue to refer us to the very best people in the area and continue to go Well Above and Beyond any job requirements. We consider them friends and couldn't possibly recommend them more highly!!!!

Sold quick Lagrangeville

Jill helped us sell our house in order to move back into the area we needed to be in. With her suggestions we sold our house way over what we expected and in only 2 weeks!! Jill also found us an amazing home that needed some TLC in our new neighborhood which we adore, could have been better all the way around!

Jill and her team were incredibly professional and wonderful to work with throughout the entire sales process. As one of the most knowledgeable agents in our area, Jill knew exactly what needed to be done to sell our house quickly and at a fabulous price. She did several walk throughs to determine any minor updates we should make to enhance our listing and helped coordinate the work needed to be done. Jill partners with an experienced staging company that puts all of the finishing touches on the house. The house looked absolutely beautiful in person and in photos. The listing itself was well written, informative and extensive. As soon as the listing went live, we had several showings and a packed open house. There were multiple offers within 48 hours of listing, and she negotiated an incredible over asking price. The rest of the process was very smooth, with Jill helping to coordinate and communicate with the buyers throughout the process. Jill is so easy to work with, super responsive and knows the market inside & out. We 100% recommend Jill -- she's amazing and we are so grateful for such an incredible outcome on the sale of our home.

New Home in Armonk

"Jill was a pleasure to work with. She was always "on the ball" and had our best interest in mind. Her professionalism and experience was evident as soon as we got an accepted offer, always one step ahead. Being new to the process of purchasing a home, we appreciated her professional opinion and critical eye. She made the whole process seamless and seem less intimidating. I would definitely recommend Jill for future homeowners!"

South Salem Home

My husband and I met Jill at an open house when we first started looking for a new home in northern Westchester. We immediately got a good feeling about working with her. Jill was responsive to all of our requests. In fact, we had such a tight timeline since we had already sold our starter home and were relocating. Jill booked tours for all of the properties that we wanted to see on short notice and helped us place a winning offer right away in a very competitive market. Even after our sale closed and we needed recommendations for stores and local vendors, Jill has continued to be responsive and helpful. We highly recommend her if you are looking for an agent

First time buyer

We loved working with Jill! My husband and I bought our first home earlier this year. We were very overwhelmed and not that familiar with the area (Northern Westchester). But Jill showed us lots of different homes in different areas, styles, and price points which really gave us a good idea of what we were looking for. Once we found our dream home she gave us advice and helped us get the best deal. Even after we bought our house she's been incredibly helpful (as she lives in the area) giving us lots of recommendations and helping us through this new stage in our life. I truly recommend!
