A native North Carolinian, Jill Engstrom has lived all over the state and US, but has always come back to Asheville for its beautiful mountain scenery no matter the season and myriad opportunities for enjoyment. Jill loves to communicate the perks of calling western North Carolina home to her clients, along with helping them sell or find the home or piece of property best suiting their needs. She loves assisting her real estate clients and conquering any and all challenges that come along with that. Jill has lived on both coasts and in the middle of the country, and that personal experience of buying and selling homes around the nation has given her a well-rounded perspective of the buying and selling process.
Before marrying and beginning her own journey around the country, her dad’s job changes and transitions kept them moving around the state of NC, ultimately ending up in Asheville, where Jill was exposed to what this area has to offer. She loves to walk her neighborhood for exercise, hike, mountain bike, snow ski, zip line and practice yoga. Exploring the small towns of western NC is high on her fun to-do list. Jill enjoys finding new restaurants, coffee shops and quaint stores. Garage and estate sales always grab her attention, along with quilt stores. An avid dancer, she is a member of the Mountain Shag Club.
Jill has a bachelor’s degree in Communications/Journalism from The University of Texas at Arlington, working her way through college at a real estate development company in downtown Dallas. Her 23-year-old son, Ben, married in August 2020, so now Jill has an awesome daughter-in-law, who also enjoys exploring these beautiful mountains.
