“When we decided to move back to Park Ridge from the city, Jill was the only person I considered working with to represent us as we purchased our home. Since then, I've worked with her several more times as both my listing and buyer's agent, and she navigated each transaction (some were very complex) with grace, skill, and unparalleled professionalism. She knows the nuances of buying and selling a home, and she genuinely cares about her clients and always, always, always puts them and their best interests first, even before her own. I've admired her so much and learned so much from her as a woman in business: she's shrewd, competent, honest and trustworthy, with years of experience. Just call her, she's the absolute BEST in Park Ridge real estate! ”

“Brian and I are indebted to you for all of the professional guidance you’ve provided us with the purchase of our dream home!  And, we of course appreciate the shrewd advice you’ve given us in regards to the sale of our home.  You are truly a talented and exceptionally intelligent person in your field, and we are fortunate to have had the pleasure of working with you.  We will certainly continue to refer you to friends and family.  Finally, thank you for the gorgeous (and functional) closing gift.  Brian will put it to perfect use!  We look forward to being neighbors and to having you over to celebrate in our new home later this year!”

All the best, Mandy, Brian, Gianluca and Alessandro Niro


“It is my pleasure to convey the extraordinary experiences that I had during my recent real estate transactions with you.

In the first transaction, not only did you help me find the perfect investment property, you negotiated an extraordinary price for me.  Your extra efforts such as attending the closing really benefited me.  During the final walk through, the seller had left junk throughout the property.  Because you attending the closing and the final walk through – you negotiated an extra $1,500.00 off the contract price to clean up the junk.

IN the second transaction, you helped find the perfect property for our family in Long Grove.  Your negotiating skills are superior – and again you succeeded in getting the lowest possible price without offending the seller.

Your professionalism, and communication skills are only exceeded by your attention to detail that I find unmatched in the industry.

Congratulations on being the top agent in your office in 2008 – God only knows that you are a TRUE GEM in the industry during these difficult times.”

Very Truly Yours,

Robert A. Fortune Jr.



“We are very Happy to inform you that we will be taking our home off the market.  We just received a notice from the bank stating that our loan modification went through.

You have gone far beyond anyone I know to help us!  Your attention, warm heart, and support has been greatly noted.  You are an incredibly honorable person; deserving of unmeasurable accolades.

Although we could not finalize any business, please know that we will always have you top of mind to recommend.

Again with much gratitude, we thank you on behalf of our family.”

Adriana and David Soto


“I just wanted to say a “special thanks” to you.  Much more than just a house; you got me landed in a condo, kept me calm & focused by saying “time is on your side”.  You are precious.”



“Over the last three years, we have had the pleasure to use your services on three different occasions.  During each real estate transaction, not only did my wife and I benefit financially from your expertise, we felt that your proactiveness and negotiation skills compare favorably to ALL other real estate transactions that we’ve entered.

In June of 2006 you found and negotiated a steal in an investment property.  In July of 2008 and you found and negotiated favorably our current lovely home which borders a golf course in Long Grove.  In 2009 you sold our home in six weeks over asking price after we tried to sell it by owner for a year.  You even played with our toddlers so we could thoroughly look at properties.

These transactions were all done smoothly, professionally, and diligently in probably the worst real estate market that we will see in our life times.

We could not give a higher recommendation to potential clients.”

“Jill O’Malley recently represented my brother and sister-in-law, David and Carol Urban, in the sale of their house in Norridge.  I was referred to Jill by a realtor friend of mine in Scottsdale, Arizona.  I thought you should know what a terrific job Jill did for my brother and wife throughout the listing period and actual sale of their home.

David and his wife are deaf, so as you can imagine, Jill had to handle each showing of their home personally.  She went out of her way to make sure they were aware of every detail regarding their home sale.  And she did so with grace and courtesy way beyond what I could have imagined from any other agent.

After the contracts were signed, there were issues that arose which required more inspections and follow-ups.  Again, Jill made sure David and Carol were comfortable with these appointments, and was always present.  After the closing and papers were signed by both parties, a problem arose that my brother overlooked during the move.  Jill offered to handle this situation personally, which was well beyond any task an agent would be expected to do.  She did this without any thought for personal or financial gain, but out of her professionalism and compassion for her clients.

I wanted to let you know what an extraordinary agent Jill is and that you and your company are fortunate to have her represent you.”

“Jill O’Malley was recommended to me by a good friend, so I was expecting a competent agent.  What I experienced was so much more.  Jill was the consummate professional, always fully prepared and in good humor, gracefully working around the challenges any situation presented.  An exceptional communicator, she kept me fully informed and her savvy marketing strategy secured multiple offers with one open house.  She expertly managed the sale at every step and helped ensure a smooth closing.  Though one of many clients, Jill always made me feel as if I was the only one.  I could not have asked for a better partner in what is often a very stressful process.  She is simply the best.”


“Thank you for all of your efforts in bringing about the outstanding results in the recent sale of my Aunt’s house!

As you know, as I live several hours away from the house and did not want to be responsible for its upkeep over the winter, I asked you to help me price it to sell quickly.  In fact, even though your suggested “quick sale price” was higher than I had expected, we still managed to sell the house for a price over the asking price and to close the sale in less than two months from the date of listing!

You also made the process so much easier than anyone has a right to expect.  Your coming out to meet me on short notice when I was in town and your fielding of offers and communication with me diligently and at all hours helped speed things along.  Your relationship with the individual conducting the estate sale and overseeing the cleanup of the house saved me much worry and effort to coordinate your activities at the house.

Based on your professionalism and your obvious knowledge of both the real estate market and the home sale process, I would heartily recommend you to anyone intending to sell a home!”

Very truly yours,

Cynthia A. Shafer


“My agent kept me posted ahead of what was about to take place and was helpful in providing contacts of services I needed.  She was well informed and paid great attention to details and explanations.

I couldn’t have hoped for a better real estate buying or selling experience.  Jill O’Malley was top notch.”


“THANK YOU, Jill, for all of your hard work and determination to make this happen for us.  Your professionalism and expertise is simply unmatched.  You are really in a class of your own.  So lucky to work with you…..

A big hug,”
