If you're looking for a Real Estate Agent to buy or sell your home...Stop looking. I have bought many homes over and personal the years and this young lady is by far the best I've dealt with. She was relentless in finding a home that we would love and fit our time frame and budget but was never impatient or pushy. By the far the best I've seen. Thank you Julia, Duane and Deb... D. Martin
Julia is a very personable individual with a non bias approach. She has excellent skills which in our position as "renters" rendered the satisfaction of obtaining a rental unit under some difficult unforeseen conditions that presented. She negotiates well and wants to insure we that the needs of her clients are addressed in an appropriate manner. She also has a welcoming "follow-up" philosophy to make sure there are no loose ends left unattended. We highly recommend Julia. D. Urban
I can only rate some of the skills noted above as I am not the homeowner, rather a family member who was not involved in the negotiation or sale process, just there to pack up the house and supervise movers on homeowners' behalf due to a health crisis. So, my review pertains to areas noted below, not the actual sale of the house. Julia assisted our family to be able to rent back the house for 1 week after close of escrow to allow us time to pack up all belongings and complete move. She provided support and guidance with the steps involved in the final stages of this process, and was extremely knowledgeable and supportive with many of the tasks we found ourselves dealing with under a great deal of pressure. She was a great problem-solver and was willing to roll up her sleeves (literally) to get the job done. Julia was just tremendous during an extremely challenging time for our family, we couldn't have done it without her! K. Martin
