When Jill and her husband sold their New York City apartment, she wasn't thinking of starting a new career. But the property sold for way more than they thought possible-- all because of how she had styled it. The broker told her she should think about making over homes as a career.
The broker wanted Jill's help with another apartment. When it sold in a day for over asking price, the calls started coming in. That's how the whole business started in 2004.
Jill infuses the real estate industry with a glittery sense of style. Her sense of humor, practical ideas, and outstanding service is exactly what stressed-out home owners crave to give their property the edge. Her work has been featured on NBC on a show called Open House NY, New York Times, Talk of the Town in the New Yorker, HGTV, Fine Living, National Public Radio, New York Daily News, New York Post, The Real Deal and Forbes.com. She writes a monthly staging column in the Residential Mann Report. The Mann Foundation honored Jill with the NYC 2008 Residential Real Estate Award in Staging. Jill has an MFA in creative writing from Sarah Lawrence College where she serves on the alumni board.
