When working with my clients I also pay close attention to the needs of the entire family including spousal employment, schools, activities, hobbies/interests and opportunities in the area, that are important to my clients, to help them make good decisions that are right for them.
When working with my clients on selling their existing home/property I work hard to provide them with a good market analysis of the value of the property, discuss a game plan/marketing plan, that Best meets their needs/timeframes on selling their property and “take action” and implement the plan to give their property the greatest exposure and get it SOLD so they can make their next move in life.
My personal motto is to "Make it a GREAT Day!” as I believe it is a Choice, so it might as well be GREAT! I work hard to be a Welcomed Call and Strive for Excellence in Customer Service and help my clients Make each day GREAT while working together Buying/Selling or BOTH!
My husband, Kevin and I have been together for over 35 years. We both were born and raised in Sheridan, WY, so Sheridan is truly “Home” to us and our wonderful sons, Colton and Carson, who we couldn’t be prouder of academically, athletically, and just as good people in general. Family is the most important aspect of our lives and we give back in many ways through coaching, supporting and donating to local schools, programs, charities and activities.
My Goal is for myself and the BEST Team to get BETTER every day and it would be an honor to get to know you and help you with all your Real Estate needs.
Let me, Jill and The BEST Team be Your Realtors® of Choice for All Your Real Estate needs!
I grew up in Sheridan & Story and feel very lucky to be able to call Sheridan home for myself and young daughter, Lucy.
I attended Willamette University in Oregon for two years after graduating from Sheridan High School and hold a degree in International Development from the University of Wyoming. I worked for several years as an CAD Drafter and Designer in the oil and gas industry before becoming a Real Estate Agent.
You will find that my passion and enthusiasm for life and as a Mom transfer to my Real Estate career. I take care of my clients as if it were my own journey and always do whatever it takes to make their experience a positive and successful one.
In Sarah’s free time, she and her daughter enjoy walking downtown, going to Sheridan’s parks, and fishing and hiking in the mountains. With her whole family of outdoors lovers living here, there’s no shortage of exhilarating, life-endangering adventures.
I have spent the better part of my life in Sheridan and I love it here. I cannot imagine living anywhere else! I was lucky enough to raise my two children here and meet my wonderful husband Joel.
I have been in Real Estate and sales for the last 25 years and have had the opportunity to work with and meet some Amazing people which makes me appreciate our community even more.
Now I am excited to start my new journey in Real Estate, helping people find their perfect forever homes or help them transition through the next step in their journey.
Hello, my name is Jack Wood and I am proud to be on the BEST team!
Having worked for the past 2 years with Jill Bates as a peer in the Real Estate Industry, we hit it off, as every good Jack & Jill Fairy Tale should. When Jill decided to open BEST Real Estate I thought being on the BEST team, was too good of an opportunity to pass up. I am excited about the new growth in Sheridan County and the surrounding areas. To be able to work with professional people that do a good honest job, motivates me to work hard.
As an agent, I don’t look at clients as a dollar sign, it makes me Happy to make You Happy. I strive for honesty and professionalism. My wife and I moved to Sheridan in 2008, but my family history in Sheridan goes back to 1934.
I have been in the trucking business, heavy equipment industry since 1977 and most recently, prior to Real Estate, the coal business. My true passion has always been Real Estate and since my retirement, I've been able to start my dream career with helping my clients buy or sell their properties. Finding and helping clients discover their new homes makes me a Happy Man!
Being a Real Estate agent at BEST Real Estate allows me to better serve this community I love so much. Whether I am helping my clients at BEST Real Estate, being an Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce, or playing Santa Claus, I believe I will put a smile on your face. So, if you're looking for the right Realtor, think of me, Jack Wood, and I will do my BEST to make your dream come true.
“Call Jack and get ready to pack!”
Ambassador Award 2019 Sheridan County
The transition from Contractor to Realtor has been fun and rewarding. I have always enjoyed building homes that families could cherish for generations. Now, working full time in real estate, I am finding great satisfaction helping people buy and sell properties. A home is usually the largest investment people make, so it is my mission to make the process as simple and rewarding as possible. It's not just about a sale for me, it's much bigger, I want my clients to be truly satisfied with the end result.
As a Wyoming Native, I have lived in all areas of the State. My family and I choose Sheridan as the place to set permanent stakes almost 10 years ago. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Wildlife Biology and Master's Degree in Physiology from the University of Wyoming. Even during college I operated my own contracting business. I would hire fellow students and we would work around class schedules to get projects done. I believe that my experience in construction and land development gives me insightful knowledge that can help my clients make informed choices, whether buying or selling.
I'm excited to be part of the BEST Real Estate Team! I enjoy the positive and professional environment which not only makes it a great place to work, but carries over into a better experience for clients. You can be confident in my expertise from years of experience in residential, commercial, and farm and ranch properties. I would love to help with your real estate needs whether it's selling a property or buying your first home, or looking to purchase the perfect commercial location.
BEST is BEST!
I joined the BEST team this past October of 2018, returning to Sheridan after a professional career in Law Enforcement in the state Misouri. My desire to serve and assist others began at an early age and was forged from my upbringing in Wyoming. Yearning for the mountains, fresh air, western lifestyle, and values brought me back to the community I so direly missed. My organization, planning, and attention to detail are a perfect fit for real estate. My strong work ethic and customer focus brings enjoyment to the home buying experience and builds lasting relationships along the way.
I enjoy the many biking and walking paths, hiking the numerous trails in the Sheridan area, plays at the Carriage House at Kendrick Mansion, the resourceful library with plenty of events for all ages, and many volunteering opportunities.
I have experience as a home buyer and understands the excitement, stress, and challenges of relocating. My friends say I am resourceful and gain gratification with the challenges of problem solving with a down to earth approach.
