When the market slowed down, she knew where the action was and got her real estate license. She road that wave for seven years, and was the President of the California Association of Residential Lenders, at the same time.

One of the first cuts in corporate budgets tends to be SWAG. Once again Jill found herself on the move to find the sizzling market. She landed back in real estate dialing for dollars finding fortune in the less fortunate who need and loan modifications and debt consolidation.
