About Jill A Gilmer

Hello, and thanks for visiting my site! 

I’m a proud Wisconsin native who returned home after enjoying a successful marketing career with Fortune 500 companies in New York and Chicago. I also earned a Master in Business Administration degree (MBA) from Northwestern University and managed a profitable personal real estate portfolio for over 20 years.

I chose to pursue a second career in real estate because it gives me the opportunity to combine my passion for beautiful homes with my desire to help others achieve their dreams.  Whether your goal is finding a stunning lakefront property, generating rental income, buying your first home, or quickly selling a house you inherited, I would be honored to have the chance to help you.

Perhaps you’ve been looking at properties online or visiting an occasional open house. I’d be happy to schedule a personal tour of the house you’ve been eyeing.   Or maybe you’re frustrated because you need to find a home in the next 30 days, and you’ve seen everything on Shorewest.com.   I can let you know about upcoming listings before they hit the market.

Are you wondering if this is a good time to sell? Please call for a complimentary market analysis and price opinion. Still in the “thinking stage?” Contact me for a free guide to buying or selling a home. Whatever your situation, I invite you to use me as a resource.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping to bring your dream to life!

With warm regards,
