Get to Know Jill Winchel


I lived in New Jersey, California, and East Tennessee as a child. I graduated with a business degree from the University of Tennessee and immediately moved to Florida. I started my business career in accounting working for Westinghouse Electric Corporation in Orlando. After transferring to Winston-Salem, NC in 1991 I continued with Westinghouse for a few years while starting a clothing business with my husband. We established Special Selections Children's Clothing, an upscale, specialty children's clothing catalog. The family owned company published 20 catalogs during our 12 years in business. As internet sales became increasingly important, we focused more of our energy on our web site.

My husband, Ross, became interested in real estate in 2003 as an investor. We currently own 11 rental homes in the Nashville area. Ross became a Realtor in 2005 and soon thereafter joined SilverPointe Properties in Franklin. After we closed our business in 2005, I focused on my husband and 4 children. During this time, I realized how much I enjoyed helping people and decided to become a Realtor, team up with Ross, and make real estate a career. 

We lived in Brentwood TN, just south of Nashville, for close to 20 years then moved back to Florida, this time on the Gulf side. Ross and I are both Realtors working in Lee County. In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach, biking, yoga, sudoku, and reading mysteries.

Laura K, Cape Coral FL
We found you on line and you answered all my questions right away. You were very professional and gave of your time when we needed it. You also helped us when we needed information about the area. When we were looking at a lot of houses you narrowed them down with information I gave you. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a house here.
Tom C, Cape Coral FL
I hired Jill to represent me on the purchase of my first home. As a first time home buyer, there was a lot about the process I didn't understand and I was unsure of where to begin. Jill did a fantastic job of walking me through the process, start to finish, and taking the extra time to make sure I understood all the details, making me both comfortable and confident with my purchase. Her promptness in getting back to any of my emails or messages and, her ability to coordinate with all parties involved around my very busy work schedule was outstanding, and overall made the process very easy for me. I would highly recommend Jill and her services to anyone currently in the market.
Jeanne S, Naples FL
I recently purchased a new home in Naples, Florida. My realtor was Jill Winchell from Royal Shell Real Estate in Cape Coral. After Jill was recommended to me, I contacted her while I was still in Illinois. Jill began sending me daily emails of property on the market matching my price range, location, and other criteria. When I arrived in Florida, Jill had not only scheduled walk throughs for the ones I had selected, but had also checked background information on the properties. I was immediately impressed with Jill’s knowledge and professionalism. She explained about properties in a flood plain, the importance of condo associations having adequate reserves, and gave me so much more necessary information that I didn’t even know to ask about. Jill spent two whole days showing me different properties helping me to find the one that I thought was “just right”. She was quite patient and soft-spoken and I never felt pressured in any way. If you are looking for a real estate agent who is hard-working, knowledgeable, and personable, contact Jill Winchel. You won’t be sorry.
Elizabeth G, Cape Coral FL
We called on a sign we saw and were connected with Jill. That house wasn't for us, but she offered to try and find what we wanted. Jill worked hard to match our specific list of must haves with available properties and showed us a lot of homes before we made our selection. The one we bought was one she found and that was "just right" for us. She was very attentive and responsive during the whole process. I would recommend Jill without reservation.
Tracie B, Cape Coral FL
Thank you for your professionalism and attention to detail.  By far the best closing I have ever been a part of.   Much appreciated that you went above and beyond for this to happen for Cory and me and also my mother!
Cathy S, Cape Coral FL
My husband and I were looking for a winter retreat in SW Florida in the Cape Coral area. Living on Long Island,we didn't know of an agent in Florida to help us with our search. By chance, I found Jill Winchel on the internet. I left my contact information and within minutes she responded. I told her the type of home and amenities that we were looking for. She immediately sent me information on several homes that were exactly what we were looking for. Within a few weeks, daily updated listings and numerous phone calls, I booked a flight to Florida to see the houses. Upon meeting Jill, I knew that she was going to help us find our dream home. She showed us numerous properties, explained the area and all that it had to offer. She went above and beyond to help us. We found a beautiful home and couldn't be happier! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in Florida.
John B, Fort Myers FL
Jill had done an excellent job as a broker; would keep us up to date with new listing and was always available to speak to and helpful in answering questions. Jill is extremely knowledgeable; she is a great resource and assisted with every aspect of the process. From the sales agreement to the final closing her assistance made everything a breeze. I strongly believe that she is the best agent that I have ever or will ever have dealt with.
Joseph G, Cape Coral FL
Very qualified in her profession. Tremendous knowledge of homes and Cape Coral area.
Kim Z, Cape Coral FL
I LOVED THE FACT THAT Jill called me or even texted daily and kept me up to date as to what was going on or what would be happening.
Ron N, Cape Coral FL
Jill Winchel treated us like we were old friends and we felt like she went out of her way to meet our needs. Jill understood what are priorities were and found listings that matched them to a "t". Once my wife and I decided which location we wanted Jill worked to make it happen and helped us every step of the way to closing.
Leslie S, Cape Coral, FL
Jill Winchel handled all the details and was in contact with the other agent through our entire process to make sure all the T's were crossed and all the I's were dotted. She didn't miss a thing! We really needed the attention to detail she provided. Our transaction was fabulous in every way! Not a glitch! We really appreciated Jill and her follow through with every detail. She really cared about our transaction and it showed. Jill met all of our expectations and then some! I have already recommended her to others I have met that need a realtor, buying or selling! We couldn't be more pleased with Jill.
Paul & Linda B, Cape Coral FL
Jill is absolutely wonderful to work with and one could not have a better representative especially when purchasing from outside the area.
Toni A, Cape Coral, FL
Jill was great. Will continue to work with her in the future. Thanks Jill for all your help.
Yvonne S, Fort Myers FL
I'm thankful that I made contact with Jill Winchel. She did an excellent job for us.
Yvonne S, Fort Myers FL
I'm so happy I connected with Jill. She is an excellent person and a wonderful representative of and for Century 21. She went out of her way to help me with the sale. I couldn't ask for a better agent.
Eric and Linda J, Cape Coral FL
Jill Winchel was wonderful from start to finish. Jill right away got a very good idea of what we were looking for. Jill was very professional, knowledgeable, and well organized as well as frie ndly and very easy to deal with. When we picked a house she explained what we needed to do and she got to work on her end never failing to communicate with us along the way. The closing went perfectly. We would definitely recommend Jill Winchel to buy a house from.
Jonathan and JoEllen G, Spring Hill TN
Ross and Jill Winchel are a tremendous team that have been wonderful to work with in several real estate transactions. They are professional and extremely knowledgeable but also bring an element of approachability and kindness that makes the entire process more like dealing with good friends. We would highly recommend Ross and Jill to anyone in need of an excellent team to navigate through the sometimes stressful process of real estate transactions.
Kyle H, Spring Hill TN
My experience with Ross & Jill Winchel was exceptional. After a rather disappointing attempt to sell my home with another realtor, I moved out-of-state and ended up turning my home into rental. A couple of years later, I found Ross Winchel. Instead of pushing me to sell my house as a short-sale, Ross patiently counseled and advised me. We agreed that if I could hold on to my property for another year or so, I'd be able to sell my home in a stronger market. About two years later, I called Ross out of the blue, and he remembered every detail that we had discussed. Ross advised that the market was indeed stronger and all but guaranteed a quick sale. Ross was right! He and Jill worked hard to make sure that house showed well including having the yard mowed. They kept in constant communication with me, and there were no surprises. Having the two of them as my realtors made me feel comfortable and confident especially since I live out-of-state. And most importantly, they sold my house in a matter of weeks. I highly recommend Ross and Jill Winchel!
Debbie B, Nashville TN
Jill Winchel is the absolute best! I have purchased 5 homes in my life so far. All of my previous purchases were in other states. But when I started looking for a new home in Nashville, I felt as though I didn't really have anyone on my side. That is, until I met Jill! Jill really listened to me and my needs and hopes for a home. She paid attention to the details, and Jill pointed out things to me that I missed in the homes that I saw. She is very patient, kind, thoughtful and helpful, and when I found the house that I loved and wanted, Jill worked quickly and diligently to help me get into my new home. She stayed on top of everything, gave me excellent advice, helped me find the resources I needed, and answered all of my questions. Jill always made me feel as though I was a V.I.P.. I have already recommended Jill to several co-workers and friends who are thinking of purchasing a home, and I will continue to give her my highest recommendation without hesitation or reservation. If I ever purchase another property, Jill is the only realtor that I will call. In fact, if there was a "People's Choice" award for realtors, Jill would definitely have my vote without question. Thank you again, for everything Jill, you are truly the best!
Meghan B, Nashville TN
Jill was extremely helpful throughout the home buying process. I was relocating from a different state and she went above and beyond my expectations in helping me throughout the entire process. She helped moved things along and kept everything on track so that I could get into my new house as quickly as possible.
Frank B, Spring Hill TN
I am semi-retired, so I was in no big hurry to buy a house. I just wanted the RIGHT house for me. Jill worked with me for many many months trying to find me my special house. It became an even more painstaking process for her as I got engaged and now she had to please TWO people with very different tastes. Jill never wavered once and continued to find houses for us to look at and never once sounded frustrated or discouraged with our "perfectionistic" tendencies. Jill was always completely honest with us and I knew that she always had my best interest in mind. She was especially helpful in getting me the information that I needed to ensure that I didn't overpay (or over-bid) for a house that I was interested in. I could not give a higher recommendation to a realtor and will ALWAYS use Jill. I hope you use her too...you will not be disappointed.
Penney A, Mt Juliet TN
Having narrowed my retirement location to Tennessee, I contacted Jill through an ad she had on Realtor.com. Because I have owned many homes in my lifetime, am a perfectionist, and have worked with many different types of Realtors, I was pleasantly surprised with how knowledgeable and accommodating Jill was through the whole process. She gently and diplomatically guided me in a direction that I would never have gone on my own by listening to my needs and retirement lifestyle goals. When this choice required me to purchase a home that had to be built, she was there from the initial contract review , upgrade selections and critical meetings with the builder. She recommended an extremely competent home inspector and kept me grounded and focused on the end goal when I was ready to bail out of the deal because of construction problems. I can honestly say that Jill Winchel is the BEST realtor I have ever worked with and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
Valerie & Larry P, Franklin TN
When Ross and Jill were recommended to us we were not very trusting of real estate agents due to past experience, but we were very happy with the guidance they gave us and the success we had in the smooth sale of our house. They are very knowledgeable and seemed to understand our needs and goals. Today we are happy living in an apartment and enjoying the urban life, but if we ever were in need in the future or we are able to recommend a realtor we would definitely recommend the Winchel's.
Mary and John A, Brentwood TN
We were very pleased to have Jill Winchel represent us in the selling of our home and the purchase of our new residence. Jill exceeded all of our expectations. We are very happy in our new home. Thank you Jill for helping us make it happen!!
Carole R, Nashville TN
My previous experiences with real estate agents had not left a good impression. I had no interest in using a real estate agent for any transaction, if I could help it. However, at the nudging of my financial agent, who insisted I should give Jill & Ross Winchel an opportunity to help me find a new home; I gave Jill a call. I could not have been more pleased with the end results and the entire process of working with Jill (and Ross-who helped when Jill's schedule was demanding) She listened to my needs; did not waste my time or hers trying to show me homes that did not meet with my criteria. At every part of the entire process, she was helpful and if she did not know the answer; she found out the answer. I would highly recommend Jill Winchel for all your real estate needs!
