Jill Barsky

Most people remember me by my slogan and not my name.  I’m Jill Barsky, the “Pet Friendly Realtor – Finding Homes for People and Animals”.  That’s okay with me as I feel honored to have the privilege of combining my two passions – helping animals and selling real estate.

Recently, I was profiled in the New York Times about my penchant to help stray animals and furry friends in need. I was quoted as saying, “if I see a loose animal, we will stop house hunting and assess the situation…The joke in my office is that if you are working with Jill and you don’t have a pet – you will by the end of the transaction”.

My firm belief that one must give back as one gets. Part of every one of my commissions goes to an animal rescue league of the client’s choice. I also spend many hours volunteering for a number of animal-related organizations. I believe that it is not only important for me as a Realtor® to find you your DREAM home but, HOMES for other 4- legged clients as well.

When you need a Realtor® that is:

○ Professional

I provide top quality professionalism and always seek to exceed my customers' expectations.

       ○ Involved in our community

I am active in the community and devote many hours to community service. I believe that it is important to give back to the community that we live and work.

○ Experienced

My experience offers a sophisticated approach to analyzing your needs. After years of observation, interaction and training in the real estate industry, I am able to help you through every aspect of a real estate transaction.

○ Results Driven Service

I am committed to providing result-driven service. My past performance provided customers with the results they desired.

Meet the Family (Our Four-Legged Members)

Buddy (Yellow Lab):  I love to talk.  Lend me your ear and I can keep you amused all afternoon.  And I am willing to share my comfy couch with you as long as I can sit on your lap.

Senator (German Shepard Mix): My parents call me “Princess”.  I don’t think of myself that way, but I must say, I can’t be bothered by my bothers and sisters.  Just give me my spot in bed and I’ll be your friend for life.

Jessie (Black Lab):  Don’t confuse me with a pot-belly pig, even though there is a close resemblance.  My favorite thing in the world is my special back rub that I will do a dance to get.

Peanut (Black Lab Mix): Just call me “mellow-yellow”, even though I have black hair.  I love to lounge around all day long – rain or shine.

Snoopy (Beagle): Well, if curiosity killed the cat, I can’t imagine what people say about me.  I better be careful because I love trouble.

Bailey (Black Lab) : Don’t say the word B-A-L-L too loud around me or I will never let you out of my site until you play with me.  New tennis B-A-L-L-S are always welcome.

Brownie (Mix) : They call me the kissing cousin, even though I live with my brothers and sisters.  I kiss everyone – like it or not.

Kali (Black Lab Mix) : I am the “mother hen” of the group.  As one of the oldest members (and a cancer survivor), it’s my job to look at out for the rest –especially the young.

Forest (Mix) : My sister Kali and I are both survivors, but I am proud to say that I survived Hurricane Katrina.  Thanks to my Mom (Jill), she drove me to my new home over 1000 miles and nursed me back to health.  I am grateful for her and the other volunteers that saved my life.

Mick (Beagle) : I am the cousin.  I don’t live with the others, but have a great home with my Phi (Jill’s mom) and come to visit often.  I think Beagles have the reputation they do because like me – we are just plain stubborn and loving every minute of it!
