A passion for real estate and development inspired Jill to join the real estate industry. Jill graduated from Queen’s University and worked in the urban planning field at the municipal government level and in private planning firms. She also spent time working internationally through the Canadian International Development Association (CIDA) in the Caribbean as a capacity building specialist.
Jill also brings experience in new condominium sales to the team, having sold suites in many different projects across downtown Toronto. Her experience in new condominium sales combined with her background in urban planning make her a genuine asset to her clients.
Other passions for Jill include waterskiing and downhill skiing. She loves to run, and has competed in various road races as well as the Toronto half-marathon. When she can’t be a competitor she likes to volunteer and has even assisted at an international marathon; as well as devoting many hours to her local figure skating club. Jill loves to spend time in Muskoka, where she grew up and has a family cottage.
Jill prides herself in using her skill, work ethic, and professionalism to help make the big decisions in your life, simple.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jill during the better part of 2012. We were looking to purchase a property in East York on one of seven streets; our search parameters were extremely narrow – Jill had a very challenging task ahead of her. Every time a house would go on sale in “our hot zone”, Jill would let us know before it was listed on MLS and would arrange a showing before anyone else saw it. Jill would also arrange to see the property before we did and would give us a debrief and any inside knowledge she had. We felt like we were VIPs with Jill. Jill’s expertise with the East York area, along with her construction/renovation knowledge was exceptional. Jill was a consummate professional that went above and beyond her duty to us. Further to this, Jill is an extremely friendly and honest individual that you can trust and rely on. You cannot help but become friends with her. We were fortunate enough to purchase our home after an eleven offer bidding war. We owe this to Jill’s advice and expertise in counselling us about what to do. Jill, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, because if it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be in our dream neighbourhood, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
We had Jill Temple of the Wright Sister’s team as our realtor and we were very happy with the work she did. We had a tight budget and defined needs which she met at every turn. She has a great knowledge of different areas in the city and we trusted her implicitly if she recommended a certain area. She always went the extra mile by checking the school districts (she even went as far as checking the EQOA’s for different schools) and by contacting nearby police stations to ensure the area was safe. She was available as early, or as late as we needed whether for phone calls or appointments. Most importantly, she seemed to get to know us and know exactly what it was we were looking for, she allayed our fears and concerns and built up a wonderful rapport with us. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a house in the GTA.
Jillian, I wanted to thank you again for all your guidance over ALL those months, helping me to find the right home. Seeing Toronto real estate prices lately, I’m even MORE thrilled that I got the property for the amount I wanted it for! The house is great, and I love it’s proximity to a GO station, the lake and this wonderful neighbourhood. Open house/housewarming coming soon. I hope you will be able to come; I would love to see you again.
Sincere thanks again.
As a young couple looking for a new home in the East end of Toronto, we were thrilled to meet Jill and learn of her wealth of knowledge of the area and of the real estate market. We were looking to move from the West end and were not aware of many of the opportunities and quirks that the East end offered. Throughout the process we saw many homes and totally relied on Jill who provided us terrific, honest advice that we so appreciated. She was always available any time we needed her and so very pleasant to work with. In the end we found an amazing home and cannot thank Jill enough for all of her support and expertise throughout the entire process. We would absolutely recommend Jill to anyone and look forward to working with her again in the future.
