A white house with a porch.

"A plus plus"

I don’t think I am capable of writing a review that will properly express how satisfied and impressed I was with Jill. She drove this deal and would not let it fail no matter how many hurdles and obstacles got in our way. Very professional. Without her I'm not sure I would have found or been able to pull off closing on this house which happens to be exactly what we were looking for. A plus plus.

"Highly Recommend"

Debra was amazing to work with and I highly recommend her. She was always available to meet with us and always on top of her game. She made the whole buying a house experience a pleasure!

"One Million Stars"

Where do I begin? Jill Mertens has to be the best agent ever. She's been so amazing while searching for home. All of her hard work and dedication has truly meant the world to us. Jill has definitely went out of her way to make sure the home buying process went smoothly. I would give her 1 million stars if I could. I highly recommend her.

"Fabulous to Work With"

She was fabulous to work with --thorough, helped keep everything on track through closing, good referrals when we needed to go get things done -- very knowledgeable on different living options through out the Raleigh area.
