Working with me

Buying or selling a home is an emotional investment and you deserve a Realtor® who will advocate for you, understanding your buying or selling needs.

As a long time Seattle resident and professional Realtor®, my passion for this region allows me to serve my clients, combining my extensive customer service experience with my market knowledge.

Jill Petersen


Jill was AMAZING to work with. After years (yes, years) of searching for our dream home, we finally found a home that we are extremely happy with! Jill was patient and supportive every step of the way. I couldn't imagine going through this process without a person like her at my side!

Jacquelynn Ranno

Jill was attentive, professional and warm. She was readily available to show me houses or gather available documents, like sewer reports and home inspections. She stuck with me for my two year house hunt. I highly recommend Jill to anyone looking for a new house in the Seattle area!

Susan Lorow

Jill is wonderful, extremely professional & dedicated, always positive and on top on everything! And my God... efficient! She made my experience with buying a condo a excellent one and I will seek for nobody else if I ever need to purchase or sell real estate again a wonderful one. I highly recommend her!

Odile Madesclaire

Jill was the quintessential professional while emcompassing a personalized and warm style. She stayed cool under pressure, answered all my crazy questions and proved to be two steps ahead at every point in the process. She made the whole thing -- that could have been nerve racking -- managable, even enjoyable.

Meg DeRonghe

What I'm looking for is someone who cares that I'm trying to buy a home, and the stress and financial burden of that decision. Jill was realistic with us, and never stressed us past our comfortable price points. She very directly would lay out pros vs. cons, and be available as a sounding-board, but always left us plenty of space to make the final decision on our own. During and after the closing, she's been keeping in touch regularly and helping up with handyman/plumber referrals. Jill is fantastic. If I ever sell my home or purchase another, I'll be checking if she's accepting new clients.

Melanie A Vartanian

Well, I don't know about CB services in particular, but Jill had the patience of a saint with us for an overly-long time of preparation on the house before we even signed. She offered brilliant suggestions that proved to be spot-on, and as we (slowly) made the changes we saw the value of every action. When it came time to act, Jill explained quite clearly what was expected of us, what she was going to do, where we should be, and along every step her information made sense, kept us on track, and gave us confidence we were doing it correctly. The end result speaks for itself, and I don't see how we could have been better served.

Dale Gombert

We cannot praise Jill enough! We were first time home sellers, selling a home that has been in the family for over 45 years. There was a lot of work to do before selling and it was an emotional experience leaving the family home. Jill was amazing! She is very knowledgeable and explained everything in terms that were easy for us to understand. She walked us through step by step and made it very easy. Most importantly, Jill is a beautiful human being. She is kind, thoughtful and caring. She really, truly cares about her clients and their success. It seems silly to say we recommend her. We really want to say – HIRE HER! She’s amazing! Don’t look elsewhere because she is the one!

Serena Irving

My favorite part of working with Jill was that she was incredibly responsive. She would always get back to an email or text within a couple of hours, even if just to let us know she was working on figure out the answer to our question. Jill is very knowledgeable and seemed to have wonderful resources available to her at CBB. This was our very first home purchase and we were pretty clueless at the beginning. We felt we could trust in Jill's knowledge and partnership through the whole process. We enjoyed touring with Jill as well, and felt that she provided useful tips and perspectives as we walked through various homes. Jill provided wonderful guidance when we were writing offers, each being custom for the specific scenario of the house and seller. The Seattle market is crazy and we were successful, thanks to Jill's expertise.

10 Pieces of Valuable Info to Gather Before You Sell Your Home

The real estate process is chock full of information. I feel like more information is exchanged in a real estate transaction than on a national security background check. But before you even put that “for sale” sign in the front yard, there’s some information you need to put together that will help you get that home ready to be sold.
