What is you want?
You want a ‘home’ for your growing family and you want someone to help you realize your dreams. You want an experienced Realtor who will speak openly and honestly with you, who will help you refine your hunt and values your time; a seasoned agent who has walked in your shoes and knows your journey well. (I do!) You want good schools, a sense of community, a safe neighborhood, and a place where your children can grow and thrive. (I understand.)
- “We faced some challenges searching for a home, especially with two young kids. We needed someone to say, ‘Hey you two, get over here and check this house out!’ or ‘Don't bother -- it's not for you.’ You understood what we were looking for and didn't waste our time on houses that wouldn't work for our family . . .” Gael T.
You are looking to downsize, to simplify your lifestyle, and to shift your focus into a new phase of discovery. You want "easy living," room for visitors and future grandkids, and a place to relax and unwind. You want a seasoned agent to fully explain the buying and selling process, to outline the costs involved, to advocate on your behalf, and to seamlessly guide you through the often, daunting process of buying or selling a beloved home. (I hear you.)
- “Julie made a very stressful transaction a breeze. Her real estate savvy and her attention to every detail made the sale of my family’s home virtually effortless . . . She was there both as an agent and a friend and I would highly recommend Julie!” Shelby S.
You are transitioning from one community to another, OR relocating from out-of-state. You are facing a major life change - with excitment or trepidation. You want guidance on the appropriate communities that meet your specific needs and critera, you want reliable information from neighborhood to neighborhood, you want a professional agent who understands the local taxes and bond measures; one who can direct you to the nearest schools, parks, shops, and restaurants, and you want a Realtor who can better help you navigate this difficult transition. (I know this journey well.)
- “What my wife and I needed were two things: an accurate and deep intuitive knowledge of the marketplace and an assertive attitude. We relied on you for all things, including community knowledge, comparable sales, and ultimately, for crafting a winning offer. Your good advice helped us get into contract and continued until the close of escrow and well beyond . Joel T.
