Julia was absolutely amazing the entire process of purchasing our new home. Her expertise and knowledge is second to none. Julia was so efficient and made sure all of our needs were met. She is so kind and sweet and was always just one phone call, text or email away. She responded to every question we had right away. I would highly recommend Julia for any of your realty needs!
Julia Lawson is the best Real Estate Agent that I have ever come across. I had a serious cancer diagnosis and had to retire and sell my home in a short time frame. Julia and her professional associates came into my home, removed some of the property and replaced it with attractive furnishings making the house look exceptional, staging the home for sale. It was priced at the top of the market in the area and we had two offers in the first two days. Julia went out of her way to ensure I was connected with legal assistance that I needed, her team helped me sell two of my vehicles, a work van and a jeep that were no longer necessary. I was not able to take my household items with me and Julia also assisted in providing items to those in need in our community. During the 30 day escrow process, Julia checked on me regularly and personally delivered all papers needing my signature. Not only was this a painless sale of property but seamless as well. Julia Lawson is an excellent Real Estate Agent and a wonderful human being. If you have the opportunity to sell your home or rental property, I strongly recommend you consider this group.
I had the best first time home buying experience with Friends Real Estate. I almost made the mistake of settling for a condo that wasn't exactly what I wanted, until Julia found the perfect Condo for me! It went above and beyond what I expected to find in my price range. Her assistant Jennifer McGraw took countless calls/emails & texts, day and night, to answer any questions or concerns I had throughout the escrow process. I will never forget the day they called me and told me the condo was mine!! The very next day they gave me the keys to my new home and I walked inside to find a personalized house warming gift. Friends Real Estate is the Best!
Absolutely loved working with Julia Lawson! She is available 24/7 and takes care of everything. Her knowledge and experience put you at ease with the craziness that is real estate. She not only sold our exiting home, she found us our DREAM HOME. You won’t be disappointed!

Julia Listed & Sold our home & provided great Service on both sides of the transaction. We’ve used Julia before & will definitely use her again as she takes the stress out of buying & selling!
Julia was extremely helpful for our first time selling a home, knowledgeable and prepared when we had our first sit down, making plans right away which kept us on schedule and on track to get our home sold quickly and for good market value.
R & J Veldkamp
Julia is a total professional who is extremely knowledgeable of the area she services. Always immediately responded to all my calls, questions and concerns if any. Julia was excellent when it came time to negotiate and always laid out all of my options clearly. I would highly recommend her services and would definitely use her again if the opportunity arises.
Julia and Jenni were great to work with. Both very knowledgeable and what they didn’t know was quickly researched. Julia helped us find the perfect home and negotiated a fair price. An added bonus was the welcome home card, gift, and gift basket that awaited us when we took possession. First class all the way!
G & M Haberfelde
We worked with Julia for several years. First Julia found clients who rented for the season. Julia helped us prep the property for the renters and took care of them during their stay as we were away. Then she found full-time renters for us two years. Julia and Jenni handled any repairs or problems. After renting for two years, we decided to sell. After our tenant moved out, the home had to be cleaned, staged and was presented so beautifully, we had multiple offers within weeks of the listing.
During the entire process we lived in Europe and both Julia and Jenni maintained and presented our home as it was theirs! AWESOME TEAM
We had a very pleasant experience with Julia Lawson representing us in the purchase of our new home. We were caught totally unprepared when our home sold so quickly that relocation was heightened even beyond the expected stress levels. Julia was prepared, patient, responsive, and focused on our buying parameters. Julia was a trusted resource. We have no reservations in recommending her services and, in fact, have already done so. Using Julia as your Real Estate professional will be one of your wiser decisions!
Exceptional service, above and beyond any help. Would highly recommend Julia's real estate services.
Julia helped us list our home for rent and found us tenants while we were abroad and took care of everything....so thankful.
There is ONE agent that I call in the Palm Springs area when I need to buy or sell my house, and her name is Julia Lawson. Not only is Julia extraordinarily knowledgeable, and have an exceptional work ethic, she is also genuinely friendly and an absolutely joy to work with. She's the best in the business!
Julia identified and walked us through the process of purchasing our first investment property, and it was a great experience. She was easy to get a hold of and had great input as we navigated through the negotiation and closing of the deal. We at Rockland Homes recommend her very highly.
Julia Lawson was a great Real Estate Agent to work with. Very knowledgeable, always kept us up to date and helped get us a quick sale. We would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. She made the whole process go so smoothly.
K & L Shrimplin
Julia helped me sell my mom's home two years ago and helped us edge out local comps in the area. Just recently Julia and her team were called upon to help my wife and I find our first home. They are friendly, responsive, and really know the area well. I don't think we will be needing a realtor again soon but if we do, she will be the first person we call.
K & R Munsey
It was a challenge to sell an upstairs unit as retired people did not want stairs.
Another challenge was that FHA loans were not an option for this condo community, ruling out many first-time buyers.
Julia went above and beyond what one would expect from a realtor and the extra effort paid off. The little touches, such as regular freshening of the bathrooms and patio, really made the sale.
I found it very easy to communicate by email, text, or phone as needed; Julia was ALWAYS responsive and available when I needed to contact her.
Julia was outstanding in helping us through the process of staging our home. Then, she brought in a professional photographer who took beautiful pictures of our home. By comparison, our first realtor used a mobile phone to take pictures, which we constantly changed. The image Julia presented of our home caught attention immediately. While it took a while to find the right person, Julia was engaged every week and most weeks, every day, with us! When selling your home, responsiveness with your realtor is key. You can find no better representative in my book then Julia and Friends Realty!
S & L Currens
I would never (ever!) hesitate to recommend Julia. She is simply fantastic. We were out-of-town sellers, which required Julia to do quite a bit of extra work. She did it gladly and very well. In essence, she did all the preparation to get the property on the market and the house looked great. So great, in fact, that Julia sold it on the first day. Maybe your house won't sell quite that quickly, but if it doesn't, the reason will not be a lack of effort on Julia's part. She is also very communicative -- she let's you know what's happening so you never have to wonder. Outstanding.
Julia was easy to work with. She was informative and excellent at communicating. She did everything she said she would and more. It was a joy to work with her.
Julia was great. We sold during a somewhat down market for our area and did have to reduce price, but everyone around us did as well. Julia is unfailingly positive... which is a great trait to attract potential buyers... and very, very knowledgeable about the area.
She had a great team who traded off open houses. Once we reduced the price, she even brought over some decor items to help "stage" the place. Prospective buyers seemed to have an issue with our backyard, and she even got a landscape architect to draw up a basic plan for re-doing.
She is very responsive on email and text, was good to give us Monday morning reports on all open houses.
We would highly recommend!
Julia was very professional and attentive. She helped us find the perfect home; it met our expectations and more. Julia always had a positive and happy attitude. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. We enjoyed working with her, and we definitely recommend Julia Lawson.
Hard working, knowledgeable, and personable. She represented the seller of a home that we purchased, and we were so impressed with her ethic, we hired her as our broker to lease the house. She knows what she is doing, and you would do yourselves a service to hire her and her team.
Julia has been an experienced professional throughout this process of marketing and sale of our property . We had a nagging relatively obscure problem that took longer than expected to resolve however we were able to come to terms with it , sell the property , and proceed to successful escrow . I would highly recommend that you include Julia in your consideration of a seasoned professional to handle the marketing and sale of your property .
From start to finish Julia was friendly and a go getter. She went above and beyond normal services to be sure the house sold quickly for what we needed to sell for. She was able to sell the house in a month while jumping thru every hoop we threw at her. Her team was nothing but professional and I left the experience with new friends.
Unbelievable attention to detail and super responsive. We are thrilled to have her on our side and she has helped us out of many jams. Shes above and beyond
Love her!!! Very very helpful goes out of her way to help you with your home searching needs!! Always there when I needed her, return my calls as soon as she can. And very helpful with the paperwork.
Julia is very experienced, knows the market well, is responsive, personal and professional. She has the ability to make deals work which is a powerful attribute.
She had a one bedroom condo listing for sale and while showing us property that we were interested in acquiring (2br, 2ba condo), she suggested that we take a minimal amount of time to see the 1br, 1ba unit. We were so impressed that we purchased her listing in February, 2016 after she arranged seller financing for us....and at a competitive market price.

Julia is a high level real estate professional. She helped us to find a home to rent before we were ready to buy and when we were in a position to buy she managed all aspects of the transaction in a thorough and professional manor. She is always available to answer questions, even late at night and she follows through with all commitments. I would highly recommend her as a realtor and as a genuinely decent and conscientious person.
R & K Laferriere
Julia Lawson is one of the most energetic, efficient, and intuitive people person my husband and I have met in the real estate industry. She is professional and personable, she has high standards for a showing, but was willing to help us out with names of reliable vendors. Her communication is thorough and timely. She is an excellent listener and will assist in drawing out realistic expectations. We found her to be both leader and supporter. We've given her name to a number of potential clients and we intend to work with her again.
R & R Saari
Julia was an incredible realtor. She was very knowledgeable in the Desert and was able to find me a place to call home within a few trips. I would highly recommend Julia to anyone looking to make roots in the Desert!
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...
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.
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!
I am an out of the area California real estate broker and real estate attorney and have worked with dozens of agent. I also taught at a college the classes needed for a person to become a California real estate agent. So I had the knowledge and the experience to handle my own transaction but because Julia had local knowledge I decided to have her sell my home. I could not have made a better decision.
Julia is by far the best agent I have had the honor to work with. She is knowledgeable both in the process and the local market. She is efficient, very responsive, patient, detail oriented, and an absolute delight to work with.
I have given her the the highest marks, not something I would normally do. I highly recommend using Julia for any of your real estate needs. She is simply amazing!!!
Julia is truly amazing at what she does. We looked at so many homes together, over 3 months. I was so glad to have her in each house that we looked at because she sees potential issues and current issues that I never had the eye for. She definitely takes into consideration who you are, your ability and /or desire to fix or remodel, and what you want in a house.
For the Escrow process, she is amazing - I realized I was really very lucky to have Julia because I wouldn't ever have known what questions to ask and what things were most important.
Then, the day escrow closed, she treated me so amazing! Adorable little welcoming touches that she added to the house, she truly cares and is excited for you when you get the house you want!
Six months ago we decided to sell our home and move back to California. Friends recommended Julia and we contacted her. She began sending us listings and continued to send them with advice and comments until we could come out for some serious house hunting. Our situation was complicated by time and distance and Julia understood this. She was very responsive, patient, knowledgeable, and pleasant. She was there when we needed her. We are happily settled in our new home now and would gladly recommend Julia to other home buyers or use her again in a future move.
Julia was and is great. Did communicates well and responds quickly to any question.
She is patient and friendly and knowledge.
She works hard to help you find something you like, but she is not pushy.
Julia was and is a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommended her for future real estate considerations.
We feel fortunate that someone recommended Julia to us and we would highly recommend her to others.
All of our dealings have been by e mail, text or phone and they have been very professional and painless and FRIENDLY.
We found Julia to be very professional in every aspect of the real estate transaction. She was accommodating and knowledgeable about the property we purchased and earned our trust that the facts she presented were accurate. Julia has a very friendly demeanor and is quick to respond to any queries we had regarding our purchase. We would definitely contact her for any real estate needs we might have in the future.

My wife & I think Julia is terrific ! We chose "Currently working together" because we couldn't choose more than one of the categories ... Julia has helped us buy 3 homes, sell 2 and rent 2 ... we keep calling her back because she knows the market, is very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
Julia was terrific during the entire process ou renting our home. I would definitely hire her to represent us if we ever sell our home.
Julia helped us find a rental property on short notice . She handled all issues or concerns we had regarding the property in a timely manner and we would recommend her to anyone looking at renting a property in the Coachella Valley. If we ever decided to purchase a property we would definetely call Julia.
I would highly recommend Julia to anyone looking for an experienced agent to buy or sell a home in the Coachella Valley. She was extremely knowledgeable of the market and helped us sell our home for list price within a very short time. She and her staff were always readily available to answer questions throughout the transaction. A great agent!!!
Julia contacted us saying that she had a client interested in renting our property. From that first contact, everything we were told has turned out to be true. She has been most helpful and professional in executing every aspect of the rental. We're completely satisfied with the experience and I can't say that very often.
Working with Julia and her Assistant, Jenni, was an extreme pleasure. If you are out of town and wanting to buy or sell, please use Julia. She and Jenni will make doing a real estate transaction as easy as possible. I give her and Jenni a 10+ Please call them to get your sale or purchase done with as little stress as possible and with a positive outcome.

Julia assisted to list, sell our previous home and buy our current home. She was very professional, prepared, knowledgeable and quick to respond to any questions/concerns we had. Julia worked very hard for us and we would highly recommend her.
Julia is a very personable & professional person. We absolutely loved her and would recommend her to anyone. She took in account our personal needs and worked quickly to find us the perfect home. I hope to recommend her to everyone I speak with. Customer service is hard to find and she goes above and beyond.
J and J Starnes
I have previously bought and sold 2 homes and have never had the level of professionalism and stress free buying experience as I have had with my purchase of my new home working with Ms. Lawson. I would highly recommend Julia Lawson for all of your real estate transactions.
Julia was a "go getter". I highly recommend her.
Julia put together a plan that allowed me to rent a house in Sun City. She is a wonderful agent. very responsive . having worked with other agents she stands out. I would recommend her to anyone.
Julia has recently been managing a property of ours in Palm Desert Ca. She's done an excellent job at presenting/representing our home in such a professional manor. Julia has went above and beyond ANY expectations we ever could've had of her.
J and T Mouser
SHE IS THE BEST. WILL ABSOLUTELY DO A GREAT JOB FOR YOU. I WOULDNT USE ANYONE ELSE.
I presently sell new homes for one of the nations largest builders and am very busy presently. I have known Julia for years and told her what we were looking for and that is all it took. She showed us just what we were looking for, and on the 5th home she showed us just what we were looking for. She has taken care of everything for us and kept us up to date on the progress of the escrow, inspections, etc. We feel we are in the best possible hands and have total confidence Julie will continue to make this a great experience. I would recomend her to anyone!
Julia Lawson is the best realtor I have ever dealt with! I have bought houses from coast to coast and dealt with many realtors and Julia is heads above any of them. She goes above the call of duty and really cares about her clients. I bought a house through her and now she is finding me a tenant for the property. I highly recommend her if you need any real estate services in the valley. Keep up the great work Julia!
We think so highly of her skills that we would recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling. In fact, we have and our friend found the home of her dreams with Julia's expertise. Julia is such a pleasure to work with, highly competent, extremely knowledgeable about the area and diligent about finding our wants and needs. A referral is the highest form of compliment and she deserves it.
As a Commercial Real Estate lending professional for over 35yrs, I have worked with dozens of RE Agents. Julia is by far one of those top 3% in the industry. Our bank was at a major disadvantage coming into possession of property where we do not do business nor know the market. Julia not only offered suggestions but backed them up with concrete support that showed she does her homework and knows her market. Her professionalism came through not only working with us, but was clearly evident she enjoys respect from her industry collleagues as well. Our only regret is that she does not live in our market area, or she would be doing a lot of business with our bank!! She the right choice for both buyers and sellers!!
Julia assisted us in locating a long term renter for our home in Indian Wells. Julia is a gem. She is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and charming as well as a reliable source for maintenance technicians for just about anything that can break in a dwelling unit. She was tireless in working with and advising us on how best to prepare the unit for rent and was incredibly generous with her time. When we are ready to sell or buy, she will be our only choice for representation.
Julia has helped me so much with renting my property while I was out of the country. She kept me informed of all details, the finances and the home I had for rent. She always calls me and keeps me updated about other real estate possibilities. I value her ethics, knowledge and hard work.
L. Joy Soice
Julia is not only truly a professional and knowledgeable agent, she is an ABSOLUTE delight with whom to work! She is the BEST real estate agent we have ever worked with, VERY flexible, remembered our preferences and helped us to find many options within those parameters. We would HIGHLY recommend Julia to everyone!
I would highly recommend Julia as a real estate agent. She is the most hard working agent we have ever used. She goes out of her way to find buyers and will do everything needed to sell your house. She is always on top of things and is very trustworthy.
Julia is exactly what we were looking for in a real estate agent. She is persistent, knowledgeable, and caring. If anyone is looking for someone to sell their home, then Julia is that person. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.
I highly recommend Julia when buyer or selling a home. Honest, friendly, professional, constant communication, easy to talk to. Constantly on the job, showing, making phone calls/contacts. Has the contacts to address any need. Really worked for us to find the best and highest buyer.
Can't say enough about this agent. Have sold 3 homes/vacation homes in various locations and wish I could have worked with Julia on each and every one of them.
Julia is the best agent I've come across....she's dedicated, hard working, efficient, honest, and a real professional for whatever your Real Estate needs might be.
I met Julia as my agent and even then she was truly amazing, since then she has become one of my closest friends. I get to see her work and I have never witnessed an agent who is so knowledgeable, professional, constantly on the ball and always looking out for her clients. I have recommended her and will continue to do so, she is the consummate professional!
Julia is a TOTAL professional and VERY easy to work with! She was extremely responsive to us as we worked through the details of our lease agreement. Julia should be the first agent on anyone's list to work with when searching for a new home to buy or lease!
Thank you Julia!!
