Browse what our clients have to say about us
"We have had many real estate transactions over our long marriage. Jill has represented us in three of them. Our most recent transaction was the purchase of a detached home in Miami and the listing and sale of a condo. Jill has been the very best agent anyone could hope/ask for. She knows the market; the neighborhoods; the schools; and people. She has plenty of experience and, from what we can tell, has "seen it all." Nothing that happened during our recent transactions caused Jill any surprise. She handles all things that come her way with grace, humor and professionalism. We totally believe that Jill is the best agent in the area and would not hesitate to recommend her to you."
"When you receive the level of professionalism Jill Penman brings to your listing you can’t go without recommending her and her team. I would be raving even if she listed and sold my parents’ estate in standard times, yet she did this during COVID! Realizing this was not an easy time to be selling a home then we came in as a strong family group with all our questions and concerns. Jill navigated and calmly addressed everything. The marketing of the property made friends that had never visited envious of the paradise we called home for 54 years. There were actually 2 separate sells, a vacant lot and the home, and it all took place with so little stress, so quickly and at a great price. Tremendously grateful that Jill was part of our team and now part of the wonderful memories from our home!"
"We have used Jill on 2 different occasions as a seller and both times she exceeded expectations. Our first transaction was a house we built in an emerging neighborhood in South Miami, and after interviewing for the position, Jill got our listing and worked tirelessly and diligently to make sure it was priced properly, was staged to demonstrate the houses full potential, and ultimately handled all the selling process, which frees up our time so we are not babysitting the sale. Our most recent transaction was a townhouse in Coconut Grove, which she also staged perfectly and by the time it was listed had multiple offers the first week. The sales process here was a bit complicated , but she took the reigns and dealt with all the issues the buyers and their agents needed to make sure the closing happened on time and efficiently. Jill has a very unique style, a wonderful sense of humor, and goes that extra mile for her clients that I find very rare and missing in the South Florida Market. Anything in the 750k and above marketplace in the Miami Suburban area ( Coconut Grove, Gables, Pinecrest, etc) I would she would by my best bet and go to listing agent."
"I’ll tell you that she’s great at what she does and I wouldn’t even consider using anyone else in this town…particularly in the Grove. She’s my “go to” realtor! She has helped me in numerous real estate deals which all went very smoothly. Recently she sold my house in the north Grove (1661 Micanopy Ave)…all cash deal, at my asking price within 3 days of it being on the market. To be clear, the buyer started out with a low ball offer and Jill convinced them that if they wanted it they better come up to asking price…there were multiple cash offers within days of it being put on the market. She is also currently handling the purchase of a great home she found for me in the south Grove. She does great marketing and wonderful videos! Ask her to show you the one she did for my house earlier this year…made me rethink selling it, it looked so good! She’s very professional and knowledgeable about what she does. It’s rare to see someone so passionate and dedicated to their work. I like that when you hire her, you get Jill and you aren’t handed off to a junior realtor. Jill is 100% “hands on”! She’s a class act and I highly recommend her."
"We are delighted to strongly endorse Jill Penman. She just helped us successfully sell our house in Coral Gables, Florida, this May. We interviewed five agents before choosing Jill, and we could not be happier with the result. She put our house under contract within just a couple of weeks, and sold our house at a price that was higher than the other agents’ suggested listing prices. We were very impressed with Jill’s ability of analyzing and assessing the market situation and trend, her exuberance and confidence, her knowledge in preparing and staging the house, and her interpersonal and deal-making skills—she is persuasive and convincing, and at the same time agreeable and pleasant. She was also very responsive to our questions and concerns we had many. As a result, we had a low-stress and smooth house-selling experience. If you ever need or want to sell your house and want to get the maximum value and a good house-selling experience, we highly recommend Jill to you. You will be in good hands."
"We wanted to thank you for your outstanding service in assisting us with the purchase of our home in Miami. From our very first interaction which I will remind you was Christmas week, when we found you and you helped us initiate our relocation from Texas when no one else seemed to be working your knowledge and service focus gave us great confidence that we had found the right partner. You knew exactly how to help us from the first call. You not only worked on our behalf tirelessly and pleasantly through contracts on three houses but had the necessary contacts to help ease the other necessary work, like inspections and loans. Without your package of knowledge, experience, contacts and patience, I doubt we could have made such a successful purchase. We are both very happy with our new home and thank you both very much. When it’s time to sell, we will call you; we unequivocally recommend your services to others."
"My wife and I went thru an interview process of real estate agents and even though we liked a few, and in all honesty, they were all qualified, we decided on Jill as she was the most upbeat, with great personality, disposition and trust worthy. We left everything in her hands from selecting the sale price, decluttering the house and making suggestions to maximize our value. Her exceptional knowledge of the Coconut Grove area was truly unmatched. It was really a great pleasure working with her, she was very accommodating to our needs as we were in the process of selling the Grove house, relocating back to Texas, selling the Texas house and buying a new one; all this happening the same week; could have not done it without her great diligence and understanding of all moving parts. Thanks Jill."
"As a first-time home buyer, I was really not sure to expect about the buying process, but Jill Penman made it easy. Within two weeks of meeting her, we found a property that was perfect for us. We’re in a competitive market, but negotiations were easy and the price was exactly what we were looking for. Jill is responsive, professional, smart, and has forged great relationships in the industry especially in the Coconut Grove area. She runs a tight process, which for Miami, is an absolute must, because no one else does! There’s no way we would have closed on time if it wasn’t for Jill and her team’s persistence! I highly recommend calling Jill if you’re looking for someone to help guide you through the process, address your concerns, and help you seal the deal in this very competitive housing market."
"Jill Penman did a spectacular job of selling our property. We originally decided to interview her because of her stellar reputation in the Grove real estate market. From the outset until closing, she was extremely proactive, focused and driven to make a sale happen. Her representation was made more complicated than most because our home needed work done, and we had already moved out of state. Jill dealt directly with third parties on our behalf, and she arranged and handled the details of several jobs, including new carpet installation. On top of all else, Jill was superb during the negotiation and closing process. She skillfully advised us on options and optimal strategies throughout the process. Her market knowledge and negotiating skills made a real difference in the sale outcome and our bottom line. We strongly recommend Jill for any real estate transaction!"
"My wife and I were locating from the New York City area to Miami for work reasons. We found Jill on the internet after looking at reviews and have to say those reviews were correct. She was very responsive and knowledgeable on the areas we were looking – the pros and the cons. When I came down for a whirlwind 15+ house tour in one day, she stuck with me going over each home in great detail and laying out the aspects that would work and those that wouldn’t. Another plus was her responsiveness over email. She would respond very quickly no matter day, night, or weekend. If you are looking for someone to truly assist you with relocation from a remote area of the country, I would highly recommend Jill."
"Jill handled the sale of my mother’s Coconut Grove home of 50 years. Aside from the difficult real estate market at the time, there were a number of issues with the home that presented obstacles to closing. Jill’s exceptional knowledge and diligence ultimately saw the deal through. I was so impressed with her services that when my wife and I sought to purchase a home in the Grove, we looked to Jill for assistance. To make a long story short, we got the home we really wanted, in part due to Jill’s knowledge of the Coconut Grove market and her ability to work with the opposing realtors. We could not be any happier with Jill’s realtor services, and would highly recommend her whether buying or selling."
"I believe it pays to be an educated consumer. That is why I interviewed more than a dozen real estate agents, including most of the top producers in Coconut Grove. I chose to work with Jill Penman. I could not have made a wiser decision. Jill clearly stands apart from the crowd. Her knowledge of the local market, appreciation of the investments that I made in my home, and comprehensive marketing plan which included a lifestyle video translated into a market setting sale price. Jill was able to deliver multiple offers within weeks of the open house. In contrast to many of her peers, Jill was confident that she could achieve the price I was looking for. And she delivered. If you’re thinking about selling your home, do yourself a favor meet with Jill."
"Jill has helped us sell one home and buy two homes. We have worked with her for over ten years. She always has been right on the money when it comes to honest assessment of purchase prices or selling prices. She and her team provide excellent and candid insight on ways to maximize the selling price of your home. They always deliver prompt and responsive service, being available without exception whenever you need her or her team. Finally, the closing support provided is simply second to none. We have been through three separate closings for substantial sums of money and they have all been smooth as silk without delays. My wife and I will work with no one other than Jill and her team for the sale or purchase of any meaningful piece of Miami real estate."
"This is our second transaction with Jill. If you are looking for the gold standard of customer service, and an in depth knowledge of the local real estate market, then you will be very happy with Jill Penman.” You not only worked on our behalf tirelessly and pleasantly through contracts on three houses, but had the necessary contacts to help ease the other necessary work, like inspections and loans. Without your package of knowledge, experience, contacts and patience, I doubt we could have made such a successful purchase. We are both very happy with our new home and thank you both very much. When it’s time to sell, we will call you; we unequivocally recommend your services to others."

"I wanted to take the time to thank you so much for all the time and effort you have put into finding us a home and getting the house we wanted. We know it was not easy but you made our dream come true. And as well thanks for helping us to sell Matilda! The transition from selling to buying was completely smooth. I’m going to miss being in touch so often. Count on many recommendations from us, because we have only but great things to tell about you and your group. You are completely the best team in Miami to work with. Like we say in Mexico, “Las quiero mucho and I’m going to miss you!” Of course you will keep hearing from us just to say hello and all of that."
"Where to begin. Jill helped me buy the home originally and of course was a master at helping find that home and get the deal done. We went through several homes as the market was quite tight at the time. When it was time to sell the home this past spring I called her again. From marketing and pricing to working with the buyers and all the way through closing the sale, Jill was a tremendous expert, partner and professional. She handled everything from beginning to end, listened to my objectives and got a fantastic outcome. It was no easy feat. Her experience and drive made for a quick, successful outcome. I unequivocally recommend Jill, she makes things happen successfully!"
"My fiance and I were looking to rent our first home, leaving New York City and Brickell condos was a big change! And she expertly guided us through the entire search and contract process. And she made it easy for us my fiance doesn’t have a ton of time in his day so she packed in the maximum amount of quality showings in less than half a day and we wound up acting on this initial round of Penman’s Picks. We were blown away by her keen understanding of the market and the process and her instincts to protect us as renters. We love our place and I have no doubt we will use her again when we look to buy a house in Coconut Grove!"
"We listed with Jill based on a referral from our neighbors who recommend Jill because of her knowledge of our neighborhood and her reputation for obtaining maximum value for her sellers. Closing on our sale proved to be more challenging than getting under contract, but through the process we came to value Jill for so much more than our neighbors referred her for. Jill was our trusted advisor, zealous advocate, and our rock from the day we listed through the closing. We would not list another house for sale with anyone other than Jill Penman."
"Consider yourself lucky if you get the opportunity to work with Jill. She is very knowledgeable, dependable, helpful and very wise. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. She was able to sell my house and help me negotiate the price for the new one that I had purchased. She was there through the closing process to make sure everything was right. She is always quick to respond back whenever I needed her help. She is very patient and passionate for what she is doing. I would use her if I ever need to buy or sell my house. May God bless her and her business."
"I have used Jill Penman several times since moving to Miami three years ago. She extremely knowledgeable about the Coconut Grove area and is exceptionally quick to get things moving. We were let down last minute on a luxury rental a year ago and within 3 hours, Jill had six appointments scheduled for the very same afternoon! We leased the last property that we viewed friday night at 7pm and by Monday morning had a lease agreement. I would always recommend contacting Jill!"
"Jill is one of the most professional, hard working women I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Although selling a house can be extremely stressful, she made us feel totally at ease throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond what was expected of her, and guided me through every step of the way. I would highly recommend Jill Penman to anyone looking to buy or sell a property she is truly amazing at what she does!"
"We worked with Jill initially in 2007 as a Buyers Agent and most recently as a Sellers Agent for the property she sold us. Jill is very knowledgeable about the market in Coconut Grove and will be our 1st call in the future if we need to buy, sell or rent a property. She always puts her clients needs first, is very responsive, and is definitely the agent you want on your side during a tough negotiation."
"Jill is top notch. We screened dozens of realtors, had one-on-one interviews with 8 finalists, and locked on Jill. She didn’t disappoint. Jill brings a fabulous network, has high integrity, has a team to stage and project-manage the sale as necessary. She is the model of professionalism — smart and aggressive without being arrogant or pushy. And she drives to close without wasting time. Thanks to Jill, we closed quickly at the right price point with the least hassle and intervention."
"Although there was a fire drill at the end for a host of different reasons which didn’t pertain to you, we closed! I want to say congratulations and really thank you for all of your help and the terrific work that you did in getting this thing over the finish line and everything along the way. So again, thank you very much!"
"Jill has represented me twice in the past decade, and I’m happy to give her high marks all around. She’s a thorough professional, efficient, meticulous, and friendly. Of course, it’s also her team she has first-rate people around her, and all of them deliver sterling results in demanding conditions."

I have a few properties, and will definitely use Jill in the future and have zero hesitation in referring her to my friends, family members and colleagues alike."
"Thank you for all of your help and assistance in making the whole house selling experience go so smoothly, with as little stress for us as possible. I must commend both of you on your professionalism, excellent attention to detail and great advice throughout the process. It has been a pleasure working with both of you."

She knows the market, she does her homework and she is on the top of things. She is by far the best real estate professional I have had the pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her."
"I was desperate to find a good Agent when I met Jill at least 7 years ago. I can honestly say I have had the most amazing experience working with Jill. I have never gone a month without her finding me a great tenant. Jill is Efficient, reliable, trustworthy and so are all her staff. Thank you!"
