We have utilized her expertise with purchasing our current home and selling not one, but two different properties. No matter how stressful the situation became, Jill McGovern remained calm and kept us positive. Her professionalism is top notch. She keeps in constant communication from start to finish. Thank you Jill McGovern for being there for all our real estate needs!

If you’re buying, selling or renting property in Orange or Riverside county, Jill is your girl. Especially rural or equestrian property in San Juan or Ortega Canyon. One of my neighbors listed their property with her and she was more than happy to answer questions for us and share her knowledge even though we’re not even her clients. We’re super happy that she’s helping the owners improve their property before selling so all of our property values will improve. She helped him make some MUCH needed tasteful improvements and our drive home is that much prettier for her efforts. Thanks Jill! When we’re ready to buy you’ll hear from us!

Jill is absolutely fantastic! We just closed on the sale of the house yesterday and the process couldn’t have been smoother.

After my father passed away I decided to sell the house and only thought of one person to call…Jill McGovern, the REALTOR who helped my dad buy the house 13 years ago.

We signed the paperwork and she got right to work. There would have to be some improvements before listing. Painting, new carpets, deep cleaning, etc. I was relieved when she said she was trying to keep the work to only what was absolutely necessary to keep my expenses down. The great thing is that Jill has a huge network of people to get the work done. She’s got a painter. She knows a great carpet guy (Sal, who was awesome and got me a GREAT deal!). She’s got a cleaner she likes. All these people have worked with her for years and not only did they do a great job, they didn’t break the bank. The house never looked better!

We immediately got a couple offers and she was able to figure out who serious and who was REALLY serious. Now it was time for the negotiating and this was where Jill really shined, demonstrating years of experience. She was able to navigate the counteroffers and list of repairs and ultimately saved me thousands of dollars. The biggest and most important aspect was that Jill was always in control of the situation and I never for a minute felt out of the loop. If I didn’t understand something (which was a lot!) she took the time to explain it to me. Also, we definitely functioned as a team. When there was a decision to be made she consulted with me and we talked about the best course of action.

If you’re reading this then you’re obviously looking for a REALTOR and you can look no more. Jill McGovern is your woman!

I've known Jill for almost 15 years, she is truly a wonderful lady that will go out of her way to make you happy, She is the only real estate person I trust and I've dealt with quite a few but not anymore she is number one in my book.

My husband and I would like to thank Jill McGovern for providing us with a wonderful experience in the process of selling our ranch. Jill was engaged from start to finish keeping the sales process on track and on time. Her expertise in marketing and sales of equestrian properties was extraordinary. Jill’s collaboration with the buyers agent enabled the escrow to open shortly after listing our property and closed in less than 30 days. We would highly recommend Jill McGovern for your real estate needs.

I reached out to Jill to represent me when I knew I would need a savvy fighter to compete in a multiple offer bidding war. On last minute notice she was up to the challenge and took my side

To whom it may concern:

This letter is a to highly recommend using Jill McGovern for all real estate needs. I met Jill back in 2012 regarding the possibility of her representing my home that I intended to sell and also discuss the current market trend regarding a potential time to place the listing. What I very much appreciated, was that Jill had me wait to list the house until the beginning of 2013 and didn't rush the representation.

Through Jill's expertise and by following her advice, I was able to successfully sell my home over the current market price and topped the neighborhood high. Once my home was in escrow, Jill then helped to find a short-term living situation which suited my budget and circumstances until we were able to secure my new home.

The new home came to fruition due to Jill's diligent search for properties and ability to work amongst the different lenders to help me acquire an amazing loan rate. By then Jill had instilled such a sense of trust that when she explained I needed to make an offer ASAP on a potential property, despite the fact I was out of town and couldn't view the place, I took her word and placed an offer sight-unseen. We dealt in three separate real estate transactions and I was extremely happy in all outcomes.

I have dealt with other real-estate agents in the past and Jill is at the top of my list of those that I would recommend. Her expertise, relationships in the real estate community and care for client satisfaction is utmost.

Dear Jill,

Thanks so much for your help with getting us into our new home. We've been looking for months and couldn't find the right house until we met with you. Within two weeks, you found the perfect house for us. Your professionalism and great attitude made the entire process enjoyable. Thanks so much for your help. You've changed our life, and we are all so grateful for your work.

Please use us a referral for any potential customers since we truly want to make sure others hire you for any of their real estate needs.

Thanks again for everything!

Jill is amazing at what she does. There was not a single aspect of our experience that wasn't 5 star. There is a great comfort in knowing that you are working with someone who is an expert and motivated to handle what may be one of the most important transactions of your life. Jill had everything handled, and in fact, anticipated every step of the way, which really impressed both myself and my wife.

Out of all of the things we liked about Jill (and there were many,) her ability to recognize all aspects of what would make a sale happen and her dedication to seeing every detail through was most impressive. Jill was also a pleasure to work with, we absolutely give her our highest recommendation.

Dave and Heather Parmley


I found Jill to be honest, hard working and driven. She has shown her determination to find me the best programs, lenders, and escrow officers to work with. She has excellent follow through, is constantly striving to give her client the best product or service available and educating herself to stay pace with the constant change in her business.

Eric O.


As an owner of several properties, we needed someone who knew the area and who would represent us in our properties handling all aspects of several rentals. We found Jill McGovern years ago and have been so happy with her services. She has found excellent tenants, and kept us abreast of what is going on in each unit as well as continues to inform us of market values. She has overseen many aspects of our investments and goes the extra mile with the city & neighbors. I trust her judgement and she is extremely down to earth and intelligent. I recommend her very highly.

Al Vieira


Jill is the best property manager I've worked with in the area. She is prompt and attentive. If I need anything she is on top of it. I would high recommend her to anyone who is a trying to rent or is renting. She will do well by you, as she is constantly looking out for everyone's best interest.

Kris C.


Jill just sold my home in Aliso Viejo for us and we got full price. She did a great job. She's now going to find us a place to call home. Thanks Jill!

Debbie Bailey


Working with Jill was a delightful experience. She is knowledgeable, and excellent negotiator and works until she finds the perfect property for you. If you want to buy or sell real estate YOU NEED JILL!

Gaby G.


Jill McGovern is a very competent real estate broker. I worked with Jill during the purchase of our San Juan Capistrano home which was a difficult "short sale" but with the help and expertise of Jill's team we were kept well informed and she did what she could to mitigate challenges and to work with the banks. We were very thankful for her expertise and knowledge of the process. I highly recommend Jill McGovern to represent a buyer or reseller in a real estate transaction.

Tim Morrison


I worked with Jill McGovern in 2013 as the realtor on the sale of my home. She sold my home, achieving a new high in selling prices for that neighborhood. Jill then helped me to find a new home, almost exactly what I was looking for and secured a short term living situation until escrow on the new home closed. Jill took care of everything and I was delighted with her knowledge, negotiation skills and professionalism. As someone whom has worked with multiple REALTORS in the past, I must say Jill McGovern is first rate and I highly recommend her

Jessica M.


Jill was amazing! She made a dream come true for me that I thought was impossible - to own an ocean view home. Friends said it was going to be impossible, however Jill really pushed hard to sell the owner that I was the right person to sale the house to, she went the extra mile and wrote a letter about me and how I would be the perfect person to purchase this home. Almost three years later I still pinch myself that I own this gorgeous place. If you want someone who really cares about you and wants to help you find a home that fits you and your family then you are in great hands with Jill.

Kathy Sanchez


Jill helped me get into the best investment property that I own. She really when beyond the call of duty in every way. She is the best agent that I have had the pleasure to work with, and I have worked with countless agents over the last 30 years. I would recommend her fully to anyone.

Bill Burk


Jill did an great job on the sale of our home getting us full a full price offer. She is a real pro at what she does. Now it's time for us a find a new home!

Jill is a delight to work with. She's has a long standing presence in her community, knows the real estate market, and has been very helpful finding tenants in for our commercial office space. She communicates well, exceeds my expectations and exemplifies the kind of REALTOR I enjoy recommending in San Juan Capistrano and the surrounding area.

Tim Pickering


Jill McGovern has been my Real Estate Agent for about 5 months. She has handled the sale of my home and has brought me a buyer in a very short time.   The property I own is very large and needed a specific buyer.  Jill brought me that buyer, with the price I was asking for. Jill is a professional as well as a caring person. I do not hesitate in recommending Jill to anyone who is selling their home or property. She is extremely trustworthy, and always looking out for your welfare.

Dee Thomas


My wife and I bought an income property with Jill McGovern 8 years ago. We have since sold 2 more properties with her. She is honest and professional. Her advice on how to prepare the properties for sale has been invaluable. All three transactions were successful and timely. I highly recommend Jill to anyone seeking a Real Estate Professional.

Tom DeLisle


Jill McGovern is an amazing agent. Always following up and keeping me updated on the progress of the listing ,as well as taking care of any repairs or issues at the property.

Peter Burke


Jill is always the best in the business!

Bruce Leek


I can't say enough good things about Jill McGovern. Her professionalism, experience, 'can-do' attitude, and willingness to go to the mat for her clients are just a few things that come to mind. Her advice was always sound and she was always there to provide support when necessary. And she gets results. Jill McGovern has sold two of our properties in the last year which other REALTORS had been unable to sell over the past two decade and she did so at a fair price. Although I know she had other clients, Jill always made us feel as if we had her full attention. She is willing to go that extra mile to make opportunities happen. At one point, Jill even tracked down a former property owner that failed to file a reconveyance when we purchased the property from them 35 years ago and was able to get that in order so we could close our sale. I've never seen anything like that before.

Robert Sanchez


We want to thank Jill McGovern for the property that we acquired, in a market that is very competitive. This premium location, was not for sale, but she met the owner, and put together a deal that worked for everybody.

If you want an agent with expertise coupled with tenacity Jill is the agent for you. This property had multiple issues and she was able to handle the worst of them and get it sold. I would not hesitate to use her services again.

Brad Sinclair


Jill helped me get into the best investment property that I own. She really when beyond the call of duty in every way. She secured a new tenant for the property after all of the renovations were complete, and did not even charge me a rental commission. She is the best agent that I have had the pleasure to work with, and I have worked with countless agents over the last 30 years. I would recommend her fully to anyone.

Looooved working with Jill McGovern. She is very professional and will work very hard until she gets the property that is right for you. If you are looking to sell or buy property you need to call Jill McGovern ASAP!

Gaby Guidry


We had some odd issues with selling our home. We contacted Jill McGovern of Jill McGovern Real Estate, who was very familiar with our area. We called her to help us sell our home (solar contract, additions, county validating house at less land than we had, a back yard of rusting tools, etc ). She was helpful in ideas about getting our home ready to sell, resolving the issues and was extrememly knowledgable, professional, and kind. We recieved a couple offers on our home and sold it with Ms. McGovern’s creative structuring (and planning) of our deal, this was Priceless! It could never have been accomplished without her knowledge and creativity. We strongly encourage anyone selling real estate to contact Jill first!

Now, two years later, the man who bought it wants to pay it off but we were “the bank.” It was no longer her issue nor area of concern. But she made the time to help me (I now live 2000 miles away). Without her understanding and problem solving skills,we have not gotten this resolved in time for taxes. If you have any property to sell, Ms. McGovern is someone I would highly recommend.
