Jill Burlington reviews


It takes an experienced agent to help buyers and sellers navigate the ups and downs of an evolving real estate market.  While my expertise is real estate, my true passion is helping people. My passion, paired with my talent of being a savvy negotiator and combined with excellent customer service, is what makes me one of the premier agents in Ithaca and the surrounding areas year after year.

I have what it takes to go the extra mile for my clients. My energy, endurance and attention to detail are what clients need to successfully complete a home purchase or sale.

Having lived in the Ithaca area for 30 years, I know the local terrain well. I have grown to appreciate all that the region has to offer. Our diverse and well-educated population, thriving culture, safe and friendly neighborhoods, and unique natural landscape make Ithaca an ideal place to put down roots.

I have two sons that both attended Ithaca City Schools.  My older son graduated from Smeal College of Business at Penn State University where he lettered in football and was an Academic All-Big Ten selection. Currently he’s in NYC working as a manager for Accenture. He has also earned his New York State Real Estate License. My younger son attended SUNY Brockport. After his graduation in May 2016, he coached football full-time at Western New England University, and then went on to play football in a pro league in Italy for two years. In 2017, he coached at Ithaca College. Today, Chase is Assistant to the Head Football Coach at Cornell University.

In the past, I have served on the Board of Directors for Challenge Workforce Solutions. I currently serve on the Community Foundation for Tompkins County’s Women’s Fund. I also serve on the Cayuga Medical Center Hospital Gala Committee. I have contributed to the Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency and the city’s Economic Development Committee.  I have been actively involved with the Ithaca Board of Realtors®, serving on the MLS & Grievance Committees.  These roles have led to lifelong friendships and community contacts that make up an invaluable pool of resources that I believe helps to leverage me as one of Ithaca’s top realtors®.

I’m hardworking, honest, dedicated and loyal. As an agent, I continue to dominate the market. 2018 was a record-breaking year for me, selling over 27 million. 2019 met with continued success with over 24 million in sales. My average selling price and my listing-price-to-sell-price ratio are above both the Ithaca board average and Warren Real Estate’s averages, and I am once again the top selling agent at Warren Real Estate and on the Ithaca Board of Realtors.

I love meeting people, getting them excited about Ithaca and finding them the homes and properties that fulfill their unique needs and goals. Whether you want to find the perfect home and neighborhood, discover that unique lakeside getaway, or locate that ideal property for additional income, I can guide you through the Ithaca real estate landscape. Get in touch! I look forward to connecting with you. My direct line is:  (607) 592-0474.

When I initially contacted you, your responsiveness, enthusiasm, compassion for us and our situation made me realize immediately that I had found exactly the right person to help us. We were so impressed not only by your commitment and expertise, but by that of your team as well. Hallie, Dawn, and Faye each played important roles in the process. Your steadfast dedication to helping us find a buyer sustained our hope even when weren’t sure how long it was going to take.  And no matter what curve balls the barn through at us (e.g., mystery location of the septic system), you helped us navigate each one. I was always deeply appreciative of how quickly you responded to my phone calls (even when heading down the Interstate or returning from Mexico!). We are so deeply grateful to you and your team. We will enthusiastically recommend you to everyone we know who is need of a realtor.  Tim M.,
Jill has all the attributes it takes to be a top flight Real Estate Professional.  She is fully knowledgeable about the market conditions in Tompkins County, has a wonderful personality that puts you to ease and have confidence in her, fully committed to keep you informed… during every phase of the transaction, and her negotiating ability is second to none. I might mention that she not only looks out for your interest as the seller, but very fair toward the buyers as well. The person who purchased our house had also high praise for her. It was really easy for us to sit back, follow her recommendations and have a very satisfactory sale of our property.Trulia.com Review,
Jill has helped us to buy our main home, several rental properties as well as a vacation home. She has always been very knowledgeable and is always looking out for our best interest. I would recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy real estate both the novice and seasoned buyer.Monica M.,
Jill worked really hard for us both in the buying and selling of our house. She is quick to respond to any questions we had, knowledgeable of the market, and easy to get along with. I know she works with many clients but we always felt as though she was working just for us because of the personal attention she gave us.Tracy H.,
When Jill says she goes the extra mile she means it. Jill certainly did for us as we were buying our first home. Jill was thorough, knowledgeable about the area and the different local communities, familiar with local contractors, and always available. She was there with a smile from our first meeting through to the final closing. Jill is 100% professional. We will go to her if/when we decide to sell, and I recommend her for anyone in the market for a new home. Jill is top-notch!Doug L.,
