A native of Lake Placid, Jillian is well versed in the uniqueness of our community such as the unparalleled natural beauty and the Olympic Spirit that embodies this region.
Following in her father's footsteps, Kelly Locke, (also a licensed salesperson at Merrill L. Thomas!), Jillian has taken her passion for real estate, adirondack architecture, and devopment and turned it into her career by attaining her real estate license directly upon graduating.
Jillian attended St. Lawrence University and graduated in 2015 with a B.A. in government and rhetoric performance. While at SLU, Jillian was the recipient of the Community Service Scholar Award, an award provided to a student who has shown initiative and leadership in their community service work.
Offering her clients a unique and informative perspective, Jillian worked in the Merrill L. Thomas, Inc. rental division for 18 months. Jillian learned a tremendous amount regarding the industry and market for luxury vacation rental properties in the Lake Placid region. Jillian can attest, the Merrill L. Thomas rental department is the best in the business!
Jillian has closely shadowed her father's many residential development projects and was actively involved in his most recent endeavor, Hemlocke Lodge. Check out Kelly's agent bio to view Ledgerock Lodge, one of his properties he sold in 2016!
For fun, Jillian enjoys trail running with her Newfoundland dog, Sadie Bear, going to farmers markets, and spending sunny days out on the lake. In the winter months, you can catch Jillian, a New York Ski Education Foundation (NYSEF) alum, on the slopes... or more accurately, in mid-station lodge with her ski boots off!
