Jillian is a third generation New Yorker, deeply passionate and knowledgeable about New York and how it has evolved over the many years that she her family have lived and worked in Manhattan and the neighboring suburb of Scarsdale, where she grew up.
Having spent 25+ years in New York Jillian has fallen in love with the splendid architecture that defines the personality of each neighborhood and the city’s many landmarks, Jillian is also a passionate supporter of the Landmarks Preservation Foundation and loves to share what she knows about the city with any visitor who crosses her path. Whether it’s the magnificent, recently restored, Beau Arts style Grand Central Station with it’s mysterious whisper galleries in midtown, or the exclusive Art Deco residences with marble mosaics along Central Park West or the often written about Federal Style houses along Washington Square park north (think Jane Austin novels), or the brilliantly conceived Guggenheim museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, or perhaps the post-modern buildings that are popping up in many parts of lower Manhattan. Jillian has a wonderful grasp of the nexus of what’s old and what’s new in Manhattan.
Jillian previously worked at The Corcoran Group and is proud of that affiliation however she was eager to transition to a buyer’s only firm where her fiduciary responsibility is solely to the buyer. This perspective resonates because of her earlier professional career as a designer of custom, one-of-a-kind props, costumes and interiors that have been seen on TV, stage and in galleries. With this work she has grown accustomed to working closely with her clients and has developed the well-honed skill of viewing projects from their perspective, making each project feel like a partnership. Jillian is a graduate of FIT and Parsons, Paris, and a current member of NYWIFT.
