1998 was a great year because that was when my family and I were lucky enough to find a beautiful river front cabin in Hood River!  Being less than an hour from our home in Portland, it was perfect for weekend getaways.  It didn't take long for us to fall in love with the community- the walkable downtown area, the quick access to Mt. Hood for skiing, summer concerts and fishing, not to mention the virtual absence of gridlock, and of course the enchantment of the Columbia River Gorge.

The friendly, small-town feel pulled us in, so we decided to sell our house in the big city and make Hood River our permanent home.  Nervous as we were to make such a big change, not a day goes by that we regret our decision. 
(Well, except for come winter time when heavy snow requires us to chain up just to get out of our driveway.)

When I'm not in the office, I enjoy reading and holding "a real book". Snuggling with my Grandkids and when the wind slows down a bit getting out on the river for paddle boarding. Every other Friday I volunteer for Heart of Hospice and have the best job ever… I deliver flowers to patients and their families. When the school year comes around I volunteer with Smart Reading and read to the littles. The best part is when you get to send them home with their new favorite book!

It's humbling to remember that it was a Don Nunamaker realtor who put us into our cabin all those years ago, and that's why it's a true honor to be on the team of the Gorge's #1 realty firm!

Whether you're looking for a vacation home, buying a full-time residence, or selling your current property, let me help. I pick up my phone when it rings and understand this is the biggest investment you will probably make in your life.  I look at homes with buyers like it is my money that is being spent.  Meaning, I have a critical eye and will point out what I see as worrisome. All the while negotiating on your behalf.

I also understand how hard it is to sell a home you have been in all your life and how that transition is difficult.  I have coordinated contractors to haul away stuff, arrange estate sales, mow the grass and get it in ship shape so when prospective buyers walk through they see a beautiful place to call home.

I speak from personal experience when I say that buying or selling property can be nerve-racking, and confusing.  BUT, it doesn't have to be. Give me a call or shoot me a text.

Ask Jill Guenther


Jill helped us get the home of our dreams in a very competitive market with tips on negotiating the sale. She had the inside track on the house and was very up front about good and bad points on every house we pursued. She was spot on with the market prices and room for negotiation.

- E & A

Jill really went the extra mile for us! Hood river has limited inventory and we were looking a a very specific type of property.Her responsiveness and professionalism are truly impressive. Her negotiating skills and the contractual terms she wrote up saved us a lot of money. Our purchase included a rentback period with the seller that had to be managed over several months. Although, the sale was closed and Jill had received her commission,she stayed in there with us!

We just bought a home in The Dalles with the help of Jill. The whole process was brand new to us. She was very informative and helped us throughout the entire process. I really felt like she cared about us!

Jill was excellent in all aspects. She was tolerant,enthusiastic as well as pragmatic. She was willing to look a a lot of places without losing her professionalism. She was even able to secure me a fancy place to stay (gratis) when I had to remain in town for an extra day.
