"Julie and my relationship started almost two years ago when I wanted to expand my yoga studio into bay next door from the exciting space. Our time together was easy and seamless and she was always honest and straightforward with me, I felt that she is authentic and person of integrity so when it was time for my husband and I to buy our very first home, I knew that I would call her. When beginning to look at houses, my husband and I felt optimistic that we'd find something quickly... and it turned out that we were more particular then I originally thought. Julie was patient through our journey and always said " We will find a house you love, don't settle."Her encouraging words kept us going especially on days where we felt defeated, confused and lost."Keep smiling,"she said."We will find the right house, don't worry."House hunting started in July and we were in search for nearly three months. We viewed house after house and Julie has a wealth of knowledge, almost like a builder or contractor, helped us see the problematic pieces of a potential home that most people would not notice. She observed that sometimes we were"sucked in" to "shininess" or "up-dated / up-graded"homes that really had either poor craftsmanship or major down falls that she was able to point out. Julie is determined to make sure that we could see past the facade and get what's most important to us, for the right price.
There were not a lot of houses coming on the market in September, which made hard on my husband and I because we had to find a place by the end of the month and I was in a panic. Julie continued to be supportive and helped us persevere, she never skipped a beat and was always on top of everything. Julie even checked in on us between showings and made recommendations too. Although we didn't seem interested in some suggestions and I would simply say no thanks,but this one time Julie proposed a house that I didn't want to look at because of my judgment on the location. "I saw it (the house) just yesterday, and it's really cute, I think you'd like it."Julie shared enthusiastically. I shook my head and replied,"I saw the pictures, and the house looks nice, but I don't like the street." "This street is different" She explained,"Not like the others in the area and I really think we should go take a look."I thought briefly and took a deep breath..."Why not? Let's go."We arrived at the house and Julie was right, the street did feel spacious and distinct to the area. We walked up to the front door, and entered, I was in awe. I felt at home and I loved what I saw too, so I called my husband to come meet us right away. This is the house we are living in right now only 30 days later, and the rest is history. As you can tell I like to tell stories that are rich in detail, but here is a summary of why I love Julie and why I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
