Jill Barsky, Exceeding Results and Delivering Top-Notch Service Since 1995

Most people remember me by my slogan and not my name. I’m Jill Barsky, the “Pet Friendly Realtor – Finding Homes for People and Animals”. That’s okay with me as I feel honored to have the privilege of combining my two passions – helping animals and selling real estate. 

Back in 2006, I was profiled in the New York Times regarding my penchant for helping stray animals and furry friends in need. I was quoted as saying, “if I see a loose animal, we will stop house hunting and assess the situation…The joke in my office is that if you are working with Jill and you don’t have a pet – you will by the end of the transaction”.

Nothing has changed! 

My firm belief, that one must give back as one gets, is what drives me to continue to help those in need. I donate a portion of my commission to an animal rescue league of the client’s choice. I also spend many hours volunteering for a number of animal-related organizations. I believe that it is not only important for me as a Realtor® to find you your DREAM home but, HOMES for other 4- legged clients as well. 

My specialties are:

Families with pets (Buying, Selling, and Renting)

  • First Time Home Buyers
  • Downsizing sellers
  • Relocation
  • New Construction
  • Farm Properties
  • Senior Living
  • Investment Properties
