About Jill Balazs

Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting, stressful, and important things you'll ever do. You can trust, with my fifteen years of experience as an active licensed real estate broker, that I will listen to your wants and needs, help you navigate the process, and advocate for you every step of the way.

My client-centered approach and genuine care for my buyers and sellers sets me apart. I work tirelessly on their behalf and take tremendous pride in my work as I’m not in the business to simply "close deals." I actively listen to my clients and act as a trusted adviser, skilled negotiator, and valuable community resource.

Whether you're a first-time homebuyer, expanding your family, considering downsizing or investing, I look forward to bringing my enthusiasm and expertise to help you fulfill your goals.

Originally from the Midwest, our family left the snowy winters years ago for the beautiful rolling hills of Lamorinda and to take advantage of the amazing schools. I know how it feels to relocate. Every day I wake up and am thankful for the beautiful community that we live in. Fully active in our community and the world, I volunteer for our local Education Foundation and school PTAs. I also serve on the Advisory Committee of the Pamoja Project, a non-profit that works to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families in Tanzania.

After receiving a BA from Skidmore College and an MBA from Thunderbird, the American Graduate School of International Management, I began my career in politics and public relations. Working with political and business leaders in Silicon Valley and Washington, DC, I became a superb listener and communicator. Soon afterwards, I found my love of real estate with a start in condominium rehab sales and I haven’t looked back since.

In my spare time, I enjoy a dinner date or traveling with my husband, hiking and exercising with friends, dancing and singing in the kitchen with our two amazing children, and trying to attend every soccer, baseball or other sport match they may be playing in. I look forward to seeing you in our community and helping with your real estate needs.
