Upon sitting down for a conversation with Jill Williams, there is one thing that becomes obvious almost immediately: she has a lot of energy, both mentally and physically. She has a cheerful and outgoing disposition where she effortlessly comes across as friendly and engaging. With a trim and athletic build, one gets the impression that she is really into fitness – and she is! For starters, Jill teaches yoga a few times a week, and her students are enthusiastic about her classes, but not because her classes are gentle and easy – that’s not Jill’s style. Rather, Jill has a following that wants to be challenged and pushed, but they also come to her classes for the themes of compassion, acceptance and gratitude. While she teaches an “all levels” class, everyone is instructed to do their best, not to overdo it; find that balance between strength and surrender, effort and ease, and absolutely enjoy their practice. For Jill, that might be the best way to describe part of her life philosophy; she strives to find that balance, makes time for fun, and knows when to be tenacious while staying grounded.
In addition to yoga, Jill enjoys outdoor sports such as hiking, bicycling, swimming and kayaking. She proudly tells of winning her first ever triathlon, the Edenton Paddle, Pedal & Plod, but then confesses with a laugh that “there really weren’t that many people competing that day.” She is a true “outdoor jock”, which is what prompted a friend of hers to call her a “gorgeous tomboy.” But what is most interesting about Jill’s attitude – indeed, one can call it a “life philosophy” about fitness – is how it fits into her personal concepts of love and self-compassion. “That’s what I love about yoga: we practice mindfulness which reduces stress, while shaping the body and opening our heart. It’s a very positive force in my life.”
I was surprised when Jill told me she has been an agent for three years; she struck me as an experienced and knowledgeable professional on par with others with many years of experience. When I asked her why people might want to use her as an agent, the answer was impressive: “It’s very important to get to know each client very well – that comes first. It’s essential that I build a relationship so that I know the best possible way to care for each client. I work within my client’s realm, including their way of thinking, their perspective, and their pace.” In this way, Jill adds, “My clients are very confident that they are in good hands.” Having a good work ethic evidently helps, based on Jill’s online reviews from past clients. She has a lot of raving fans, to be sure.
I was also intrigued when Jill described what it means to be an effective agent. “I find it similar to being a yoga instructor or tour guide. My clients are about to go through an experience/journey that’s often challenging both emotionally and financially, and can also be full of surprises, from the home inspections, negotiations and securing a loan if buying. I know I can help them every step of the way, and that’s very gratifying.” So what does Jill like most about being an agent? “That’s easy, I love the diversity of each client and their unique situations – navigating each step of the process with them or for them. I work hard for my clients with all my heart and soul.” She adds, “On more than one occasion, after a real big win or accomplishment, my broker Sandy will say, “They just didn’t know who they were dealing with!”

With her experience, she was able to advise us to ask for more repairs and got us a better deal. She recommends great inspectors and all the best people. With Jill, we never had to worry about anything! 100% would recommend her to everyone!”
