I absolutely love my job and clients tell me my enthusiasm really shows. In fact, we have such a rewarding time during the house hunting process that many of my past clients and I are now mutually respected associates. Connecting those in their professions with my past clients is certainly top of my list of the many benefits of selling real estate.
I’ve been in sales my entire life and real estate is definitely one of the most exciting and satisfying careers. It means a lot to me to know that people trust me with such an important purchase. Homes change people’s lives, and I’m honored to be part of the process. Seeing the faces of my clients light up in their new home is only one of the many things about this business that I treasure.
I have spent my 17+ year career as a Realtor working with the Apel Team. Being part of a team is truly a satisfying experience for me. The mutual support and camaraderie we enjoy really energize me. Our team members also provide seasoned input on the issues concerning “all of our clients.” We obtain multiple viewpoints on real estate issues, giving us a huge advantage. This is why our team delivers top results to both our buyers and sellers.
As a fourth generation Colorado native, I know a great deal about the many wonderful neighborhoods in which I work. Being a Native allows me to specialize in helping folks who are relocating to Denver, as I take pride in knowing much about the Denver Metro areas. I spend much of the work day in urban Denver from my Sloan’s Lake base of 25+ years, but my listings can also be found in the surrounding areas of Arvada, Lakewood, Littleton, Wheat Ridge…even Loveland. I also own rentals in both Denver and Jefferson County, which is a great way to diversify your retirement. I actually assist about 20% of my client base with income property; purchasing and holding rentals is now a passion of mine as Denver continues to grow.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my hubby of 25+ years and our daughter (now in college), plus a pair of exuberant beagles. My “free time” is spent playing and watching sports, exercising, and continuously looking for ways to volunteer. I do currently volunteer as the West Highlands Neighborhood Association’s Secretary, which gives me a chance to help the community. I also love to travel and visit other real estate markets in person. I view my career as a continuous learning experience and I hope to keep improving and refining my services for years to come.
“It was such a pleasure working with Jill Samuels recently on selling my house and purchasing my new house. Due to Jill’s expertise in the market she was able to help us get the maximum value out of our house and get it sold in 3 weeks. We were able to purchase an AMAZING foreclosure owned by the bank. Although this process can be a little challenging working with banks, due to Jill’s persistence and relationship that she built with the other Realtor we were able to come to terms and work through the final process smoothly. Jill is a hard worker and was always available for us to view houses and was willing to do as many open houses on our as it took to sell it. I am recommending Jill and her team to all my friends. Jill introduced us to Christine Jensen, Cherry Creek Mortgage Company Arvada branch and her team. They truly were able to get us the best interest rate around and were very professional and stayed on top of the entire process.Christy Desiato
“Jill Samuels and the Apel Team truly were the best possible advocates we could have had in our corner. Faced with the challenges of a still soft market, a quick and somewhat urgent turnaround and busy schedules for everyone involved they kept everything in order and did it with a smile every step of the way. While chaos reigned in so many other aspects of our lives we never worried about the state of our home selling and buying transaction; we knew Jill had everything under control and she was great with her follow up and consistent updates. With ‘the madness’ behind us now, we are so very grateful for everything she did to help us achieve our life-long dream and know we couldn’t have done it without her.
Many thanks to the entire Apel Team, you’re the best!”Ken & Kathleen Williams
