Why not hear more about Jillian straight from her clients?

Jillian, Adrianna, and Kristina are, hands down, the best in Alexandria. They were truly invested in making our dream become a reality. To that end, the Group always made us feel like we were their priority - through both our purchase and our sale. They guided us through the tricky process of purchasing our "forever home" and were ever so patient as we sold our home. They never panicked when issues arose and always kept us in the loop with all strategy. We were lucky to work with them and would not hesitate to recommend them all to others. I would say we'll be sure to use them again - but, there's no need to...they found us our dream home!
Jillian was a dream to work with- her personable style and enthusiasm are infectious. She guided through me every step of selling my home, ensuring I got the best possible price. I’m not exaggerating when I say I could not have done this without help and professionalism. Selling a house is stressful enough but add to that the updates that needed to be done and it just ups the ante.I was worried that I might not get the price I wanted, but with Jillian’s expertise and a minimal investment I was able to realize an additional $175,00 in profit and got two offers that were at least $50,000 over the asking price and $7000 over my ultimate goal sale price.I literally moved out of my house and left the country and she managed the renovations. A month later I came back, we met, went through the house, and she informed me the house would be ready to go on the market in 2.5 days. I gave my hardwood floors some TLC, she had stagers come in, and Friday afternoon it was live and by Friday night we had 8 individual appts. for the following day. By the following morning we had 11. Open House was on Sunday from 2-4, we had 40 independent groups come through, and by Monday at 2pm we had 8 offers. By 3 Made my choice as she guided me through the pros and cons. Everything was handled to perfection and the marketing and staging were brilliant.Jillian then guided me through the appraisal process and was always available for questions. We had a slight hiccup right before closing and Jillian worked every angle until it was resolved.I can’t imagine selling my house without her by my side. Her professionalism was exemplary, her moral and emotional support made the process of letting go of my home of 17 years close to joyful. I never doubted that she always had my best interests at heart. I feel like I not only sold a house but gained a friend. I’d recommend her to anyone - and I have - she’ll bend over backwards for you.
The Jillian Keck Hogan team helped us find a rental in Alexandria, and I'm so happy we worked with them. Adrianna was our agent, and she is great at her job. She is extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and competent. She's also exceptionally patient, as she rolled with the punches when I changed my search criteria several times before we decided on the perfect property.
She also went out of her way to speak to a couple different property owners who had weight limits for dogs (my dog is 60lbs), and she was successful in persuading the owner of the property we're going to rent to allow us to rent with my pup. Another thing she did was negotiate my monthly lease payment- she managed to get us to a monthly price that's $100 less than the advertised or listed price. With a two year lease, she's saving us a significant amount of money.
We were unable to visit the area when searching for a rental- or I suppose we would have if we didn't have Adrianna. But she took care of everything- including doing a walk through of a property we were interested in via Facetime. As she walked thought the house, she talked to me and pointed out different things I wouldn't have even known to look for. Then, when I had a questions, she'd move the video over the the area I was asking about and tell me what I wanted to know.
I cannot recommend Adrianna and the Jillian Keck Hogan team more highly. My experience with Adrianna was exceptionally wonderful.
Adrianna is a very attentive to the needs of her clients. We wanted to be in a neighborhood that we could run and walk. She even ran with us to each of the places on our list and created the running route!
Jillian was an all over expert to work with for selling my condo. Her enthusiasm, knowledge, follow-up, professionalism and energy make her great to work with. My condo sale was so small, relative to Old Town houses, but she kept me front of mind throughout the process. She also listened closely to my wish list and the outcome was great. I also loved the glossy, professionally photographed sheet that showed my condo's best points and also her social media savy. Thank you Jillian!

Jillian helped us navigate the fast-paced, ever-changing market, and our ever-changing minds. She was familiar with the area and implemented knowledge of an experienced realtor. Due to her strong negotiation skills, we secured a house for better price than we expected.
Jillian’s organizational skills and flexibility were astounding! Without a hitch, she promptly and accurately answered our questions via text, email, and phone calls. We―a multi-generational family of four adults―felt like her only clients; although we knew she was busy during peak sales season.
Kristina joined the Jillian Keck Hogan Real Estate Group during our three-month house-hunting process. Her perky personality eased the stress of finding the right house for our two-family needs. She also was supportive in researching reliable referrals for our home projects.
Working with Jillian and Kristina was highly successful and fun!
As first-time home buyers, my wife and I had no idea what the home-buying process entailed. Jillian was not only patient and willing to guide us through the process, she also provided us with a wealth of knowledge along the way. From open houses and negotiations to final closing, Jillian was always on top of things. She is organized and professional, and made the entire process as painless (and fun) as possible. A month into our new home, we are so thankful for her guidance and, even more, a new friendship.

Jillian helped us to buy the perfect home for our family and we could not be happier about working with her! She is a true professional who knows the market and works hard to help you find exactly what you want. Her communication is excellent, she has many connections in the industry, and we were confident in her guidance when submitting an offer in a hot market. We cannot say enough about Jillian – overall, buying this home with her was a very positive experience! We highly recommend her if you’re looking for a realtor.

Jillian was above and beyond amazing representing our home/old post office in McLean. Far from the usual McLean home, we needed an agent who understood historic, older structures and contemporary marketing approaches. Jillian was perfect with both. She had terrific creative strategies, securing a feature story in dcurbanturf.com as the "pick of the week" and selling our home in 8 days. Thank you, Jillian, for everything you did to take the stress of selling our home off our shoulders. 10 stars for you!!!
Jillian is fantastic! Jillian and I went to high school together, but we really didn’t know each other that well. We reconnected when Jillian approached me at the gym (her warmth in reaching out to an acquaintance speaks volumes about her as a person and as a realtor). Fast forward a couple years, and I reached out to her about buying our first house. Working with Jillian was like working with a close friend (a very organized and responsive friend). I highly recommend working with her, especially if you are a first-time homebuyer who is seeking some extra help in understanding the process. She’ll keep you organized and on-task without making the process feel like a chore.

Jillian helped us buy our first home 4 years ago and when it came time for us to sell, we called Jillian again without hesitation. We can't say enough good things -- she's professional, organized, and responsive, she has great relationships with other agents (which we found is very helpful in the selling process), and truly knows the market in and out. She helped us determine the best strategy for getting a good sales price and we were blown away by the multiple offers above listing that we received. As we were looking to purchase a bigger house, Jillian was very helpful in educating us more about the neighborhood we were interested in. She helped us quickly find a new home that was perfect for our family. Her instincts, negotiation skills, and strategies were spot on and we credit her entirely with the great purchase price we were able to get on the home. Negotiating a purchase below list price is not easy to do in a hot market like DC! She walked us through every step of the purchase to make sure the transaction went smoothly and all deadlines were met ahead of schedule. Jillian is patient and hard-working and made what can be an overwhelming process very easy on us; we will without a doubt continue to use her for any future real estate needs.
Jillian was unequivocally wonderful to work with! She met with me at the beginning of my search for an in-depth discussion of what I was looking for, and she provided me with extremely helpful tips and instructions as a first-time homebuyer. Throughout the process, she was always readily available and very quick to respond. Once I narrowed down the neighborhood and buildings I liked, Jillian was extremely proactive in finding new listings so I was the first to see them, have time to visit and make an informed decision. After putting in an offer, Jillian was with me every step of the way and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She walked me through any questions or concerns, and I am extremely happy with my purchase and the entire process! A friend referred Jillian to me, and I would absolutely not hesitate to refer her to another friend.

This is the second house we've bought and it was a lot easier this time because of Jillian. First, she is incredibly responsive. Our buying process took place as she was planning her wedding but you'd never know it because she responded within the hour by e-mail or phone no matter what she was doing. She scheduled all inspections so we didn't have to do a thing. She is an outstanding negotiator. She got everything we needed from the seller and did so quickly and efficiently. Jillian knows her field and she clearly loves what she does. I highly recommend her to busy people who also have high standards.
Jillian was essential in helping me find a property that was within budget and one that I would feel proud owning! She is very knowledgeable and really cares about her clients which show in her willingness to assist during all hours of the day. She was very quick to respond to texts and emails and traveled far to help me narrow down the list. I highly recommend Jillian for anyone looking for an Agent who cares and one they can trust! 5/5! Thank you again, Jillian!

We knew we wanted to buy a house in Northern Virginia, but we were having trouble wading through the endless neighborhoods to consider. It wasn’t until we sat down with Jillian that we were able to really nail down the target area of our search. Her vast knowledge of Northern Virginia and Alexandria, in particular, helped us find the perfect neighborhood (and in an area we didn’t even know existed!). Thanks to Jillian, we found a house we could afford in a great community. And when it was time to submit an offer, she was on it! She knew the comps for other recently sold houses nearby, had an excellent sense of the true value of the house and made a rock-solid case for the price we went in with. The offer was accepted and the rest of the process was very smooth. We love our place and could not have been happier with the excellent advice, service, and support we got from Jillian. Do yourself a favor and hire her!!
Jillian did an excellent job selling my condo in April 2017. I was most impressed with her confidence, enthusiasm, communication skills, and attention to detail. She deftly handled all the moving parts and deadlines associated with every phase of the selling process with aplomb and good cheer. She handled last minute problems before I even knew they existed. Her hard work minimized my stress and helped me accomplish my one and only goal - sell in one month! Based on my excellent experience, I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Jillian went above and beyond before, during and after the purchase of our first home. Negotiations are a stressful time, but Jillian was always calm, clear and candid about what we should expect throughout the entire process. She was always available and quick to respond to our texts and calls. My wife and I could not be happier with the exceptional service Jillian provided as our agent.
Just worked with Jillian on the sale of my home. She was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Always kept me informed, very responsive to any questions, easy to work with, knowledgeable about the market, and sold my place very quickly! Thanks, Jillian!
Jillian was a phenomenal resource for us during our search! With looking at homes, it can often feel like a long process. I was extremely comfortable popping in and out of properties with Jillian while she highlighted the important details of each, or spending more time in the ones we were more interested in. Jillian is highly professional and thorough. So much so that we had our application completely and correctly finished and were the first to submit it, ultimately giving us the advantage over other offers. Already looking forward to working with her again in the future!
Jillian did a great job helping me buy my first home! She stuck with me for over a year, did a great job getting to know what I needed, what I wanted, and what my constraints were. Always quick to respond to any questions I had and really showed her expertise.
In a "hot" market, having a realtor who acts quickly may be what gets you the house. With very few houses coming up in the neighborhood in which we were interested in buying, Jillian kept her eyes open for what was coming on the market before it officially came on. She got us in to see a house we were interested in buying before the house went "live." Had we not gotten in early, I have no doubt that there would have been multiple offers on the house. We put a contract on the house and it was smooth sailing through the entire process. It was the fifth house we've purchased, and it was by far the easiest experience we've had in home buying.

Jillian is the reason that we now have our dream home in Del Ray! Not only did she provide tons of advice on creating the most competitive contract in an extremely hot market, she made the whole process painless, stress-free and even fun, celebrating right along with us when we learned that our contract was accepted. Working with Jillian is definitely one of the best decisions we've made in our real estate journey!
