What Clients Are Saying

Jon Civill (Jonie) came to me highly recommended by a High School classmate whose family home she had sold quickly and at a good price. Our experience with Jonie was equally good. We had to sell our family home, occupied by family members since it was built in 1953. Preparing the house for sale was a huge job, with health and safety issues that needed to be addressed, as well as the huge clean-out required. Jonie did an expert and very attentive job of guiding me through that whole process, and helping me to decide what needed to be done. She was unfailingly tactful, polite, and considerate, and responded quickly to every communication. The companies which she recommended to accomplish all this, at least a half dozen that were needed, were uniformly competent, reasonably priced, and pleasant to deal with. As a result of these efforts, the house sold in a few weeks, and at our full asking price.

Of all the Real Estate agents I’ve dealt with in my life, I feel that Jonie was the best, and I would recommend her wholeheartedly.

Gaile S.

Ms. Civill had to go the extra mile because we “went the extra miles” and moved two thousand miles away while the sale was underway. She saw to it that inspectors and technicians got in while we were soaking up the sun in our new home in the Southwest. We trusted her to do professional work, as she had sold homes for neighbors and business colleagues who had a reputation for demanding the best and getting it. She did not disappoint. Also, because she lives in our neighborhood and has handled sales for many years, we trusted her to know the market better than anyone else.   

Donna and Patrick

We recently sold my parents' house after their passing.  Jonie acted as our realtor in the transaction.  I was very satisfied with the whole process and would recommend Jonie to anyone seeking to sell their house.  She came to our first meeting extremely prepared, listened to what we wanted to do and was able to advise us on how to best go about starting the process.  She helped us through the initial examination of the house and was very honest with telling us, both what she thought the house would sell for and what work needed to be done.  In addition, she was prepared with a list of people who could do the work needed.

 

I was especially impressed when it came to listing our house.  The information that was posted about it was concise and accurate and the photos she took were excellent.  She spent many hours, at all times of the day showing the house, and then working with the buyers and with us on an offer.  We were able to agree on an offer in less than 2 weeks.  I firmly believe that this was because of all the work she put into showing and marketing the house.

 

I totally recommend Jonie to anyone looking for a realtor

Portia

We knew we made a good choice when we asked Jonie to be our listing agent. Her counsel on staging and pricing were spot on. The home sold in one day for asking price. Joni was beside us every step in the process. We could not be happier with the results

Deb and Neal

I recently sold my first house with Jon Civill and was nothing but impressed!  She was incredibly patient answering my many questions throughout the process, always available, and professional and personable. And the best part, she had my house under contract in 3 days!  I highly recommend Jonie....you will not be disappointed!"

Karen M.

As first time home buyers the whole process was incredibly intimidating. Lucky for us Jonie Civill was our Realtor. She let us move at a pace that felt comfortable to us and always explained things in a way we would understand. She helped us find the perfect house for us!

Erica and Mike

 

This year I suffered the loss of my 84 year old brother, who lived in the house I grew up in for 66 years.

 In that I live 1000 miles away, managing the sale of a 150 year old family estate was very intimidating. Fortunately a friend from the past, who had recently gone through a similar experience with her family home recommended you. A very fortunate day for my family.

 I have found you to be an excellent communicator with excellent knowledge of the community housing market.

 You were very helpful in making recommendations to the lady who emptied the house in preparation for listing.

 Based on your actions, the house was listed and closed in less than two months.

 Additionally, when I gave the name of my realtor to the attorney  that was handling my brother's estate, he said he knew her and was very complimentary.

 I am very grateful for the excellent experience I have just concluded, and would strongly recommend you to future sellers.

 Thank you so much for a very professional experience with outstanding results.

Peter

We are pleased to provide the highest of recommendations for Jonie Civill of Civill Realty.  Jonie’s personal commitment to every step of the home selling process from the initial marketing of our home to the last stages of closing was exceptional in every way.  

Jonie’s in depth knowledge of the real estate market of the Capital Region to include the surrounding rural areas, her willingness to go the extra mile by expanding the market area for advertising, and her use of the most current forms of electronic marketing were the key to a successful sale of our home.

In addition to Jonie’s strong professional credentials, Jonie sets herself apart from the “big” realty groups by her willingness to personally show the property at each and every showing.  After 27 years in our home it became like a family member and Jonie treated it as such.  This is a rare find in the realty industry.  We feel very fortunate to have ended this phase of our life with such a caring, knowledgeable and professional realtor.

Paul and Gayle

I know you have some great testimonials, and it's time I added mine. We must have asked you to show us twenty to thirty houses, made offers on three or four, and finally bought our first home in 2006. It's not far from your home, so you were full of great information that helped us settle into the community. Since then, we have called on you for all kinds of advice, recommendations, and assistance. In every case, you have helped us out and have never received any additional revenue from us. We referred others your way when we still lived in the area but haven't been local since 2011. Still, you are always willing to help when we need something on that same house we haven't been able to let go. You build wonderful, lasting relationships, and I hope you can share this testimonial to earn new business. We would highly recommend you to anyone we know looking for a home in your area. And, maybe one day when we're ready, we'll sell that first house. When that day comes, you will be our first call. Thank you for your kindness.

Doug

After living in Schenectady for 4 years, I finally decided to lay down roots and begin the search for a home.  After an initial encounter looking at a fixer upper I had seen online, I had the fortunate experience to be connected to Jonie Civill, which made all the difference in my home search. Through many months of searching and a couple of contract submissions that never seemed to work out, she found the perfect house and perfect fit for me. Her integrity and honesty during my search always gave me the confidence that she understood my wishes and had my best interests at heart. Her goal was not just to sell a house, but to make sure that I received the best deal and the perfect home for me. I will always be grateful for her patience and commitment to helping me achieve my dream. 

Karen

I want to thank Jon for the ease with which she handled the sale of the home for which I was the executor. Her responsiveness and  the execution of the sale was stellar from the start to finish.  I highly recommend her services.

Donna B.

This is to indicate that I recently sold my building on Union St. in Schenectady and my realtor was Ms. Jonie Civill.  This was an older building and I had some serious reservations concerning its sale.  Fortunately Jonie was extremely professional and oversaw the entire process of valuing, listing and ultimately selling the property.  She had secured a serious buyer within one month and the sale was completed within two months.

Throughout the entire process Jonie expressed optimism that this would be completed in a fair way to all participants which it was.  She even represented my interests at the closing which I could not attend.  Her entire representation was of the utmost professional nature and this transaction could not have proceeded any better.

I recommend Jonie as highly as possible as she exhibited the correct mix of optimism and professionalism in dealing with this transaction. It was indeed a pleasure working with her.

Michael R. Breault, DDS

Jonie is a consummate professional. She knows the area and has extensive experience in the buying/selling process. Her excellent assistance, advice, and overall kindness made selling my home a much more pleasant experience. If you are planning a real estate transaction, I would highly recommend having Jonie Civill in your corner!     

Deb M.

This was the second home we purchased with the help of Jonie. Just like our experience with our first/starter home, Jonie was great throughout the process. Jonie is a straight shooter, tells you how it is (i.e. won’t sugarcoat a potential homes flaws), and is extremely knowledgeable about this area and the market. In addition, Jonie is an advocate for her clients. During the negotiations with the seller we were ready to except a counter offer and Jonie advised us to stand firm - we did and she saved us a significant amount of money.

Jay, Nicole, and Wes

Our entire family was pleased with the way the sale of the home we had occupied for almost 61 years was handled by Jonie Civill of Civill Realty.

 

From the initial contact to discuss whether we would contract with Civill Realty to the very satisfying closing sale about 2 months later, the advice we received was right on concerning improving the market value and helpful hints to facilitate vacating the house.

 

All of this was accomplished without any high pressure sales approach by Jonie Civill of Civill Realty.

Gerry P.

Jonie Civill is an amazing realtor. She went above and beyond to help us find a  home in NY as we prepared to move from CA. Jonie listened to what we wanted (and didn't want!) in a home and made excellent suggestions and sent really accurate house listings for us to view. When it came time to see some, she not only showed us the ones we were interested in, she named both the blessings and the shortcomings that were totally in tune with what we had said to her. She LISTENS and strives to get it right. As first time home buyers, she was also able to help guide us through the inspections, the loan process, and advocated on our behalf with the seller. We are so grateful to have found a home with Jonie's help, good humor, and support!

Wendy and Lynn

Jon Civill recently completed a sale of my cottage by the Mohawk River. This was a difficult property to sell as it was a small cottage with one bedroom. It appealed to a limited market. It took awhile to sell but Jonie persevered with untypical consistency until it sold. She represented my interests every step of the way: the showings, offer, mortgage process and the closing. Thank you Jonie.

Ron and Laura

Jonie is a professional! She helped us with our year long search to find the perfect home, and then sold our house immediately when we we're ready. During the course of that time we got to know each other well and she took the time to understand what is was we liked and didn’t like. The best part about working with Jonie, is she is patient and honest. She was never pushy or overly eager to make a sale – she truly wants you to find the house that is perfect for you. Jonie is extremely knowledgeable about the Schenectady area market, but she is also very detail oriented when it comes to finding the right home. Things happen on time and she communicates every step of the way. Working with her was an absolute pleasure, and we are extremely happy in our new home. 

Kaitlin and Greg

We recently had the pleasant experience of working with Jonie in selling our home. Jonie was thorough, well informed regarding the current market trends, kept us updated with the at times bumps in the road we faced with the sale, reassured us when we had doubts about negotiations and was diligent in checking on the empty house as we needed to move out of the area before the closing. Jonie proved to be the total professional she is, while maintaining a warm, friendly relationship with us. Several friends have sold and are planning to sell their homes using Jonie's firm. No one has had a bad experience using her services.
