Driven by her altruistic nature, broker Jill Collins is always ready to lend a hand. “Real estate combines my two passions,” the Chicago native says. “Helping others and nurturing relationships.”
At Coldwell Banker, she works with residential clients of all ages and incomes, and specializes in securing the highest pricing for sellers and the best deals for her buyers. She is part of a huge network with Coldwell Banker and is always a step ahead as she guides her clients with top marketing skills.
Appreciated for her diligence, transparency and amiability, Collins is as personable as she is knowledgeable. She strengthens her customer-first approach with keen market insight and data-driven process. “Clients receive the same service from me whether it’s on the rental or a million-dollar listing,” Collins says. “For me, it’s about my natural passion for wanting to help people.”
A former telecom engineer, she entered the real estate industry six years ago after spending more than a decade as a stay-at-home mom. Quickly climbing the ranks at d’aprile properties, Collins earned Top Producer status in 2020 before transferring to Coldwell Banker Realty in Arlington Heights the next year. She is once again a Top Producer and in the top 10 percent of her MLS. While at d’aprile properties, she also garnered the Key Award for sales in 2018 and 2019, as well as the Dharma Award and Homesnap’s Excellence in Client Service award. Collins is a National Association of Realtors Certified Staging Consultant, Pricing Strategy Advisor and Real Estate Negotiation Expert.
In addition to running a full-time real estate business by herself, she is a staple in her community, has been the vice president of the Ways and Means PTA, and is involved with the parent-teacher organization for her son’s high school. She’s also the founder of a booster group for the school’s theater. Having twice participated in Ninja Selling training, Collins is a proud member of Ninja Nation and loves being a part of the National Association of Realtors.
