Owner and founder of Southern Key Realty, Jill has over a half a decade experience in the business and has curated a successful and innovative team with a proven track record of making happy home buyers and sellers.


This teacher turned entrepreneur once worked in research and development as a chemist where she learned the importance of listening carefully and paying close attention to details. Forever a learner a heart, Jill is dedicated to making your buying and selling experience as seamless as possible, and on the off-chance she doesn't

have the answer to your question, she won't stop until she finds it.


When she's not working with a buyer or a seller, you can find her cooking or spending time with her family. She loves to travel, especially when it involves warm sun and salty toes, but her home always has been and always will be here in the Piedmont Triad. Let Jill show you why she loves calling the Triad home.
