"My husband and I could not have found a more perfect partner to help us land our dream home. Julie was phenomenal from start to finish. She walked us through every step of the buying process – from guiding us through the challenging California housing market and helping us thoroughly evaluate each property to connecting us with the right experts to help us pounce on the home we loved. I’ve worked with other realtors before, but Julie’s deep knowledge in both real estate and the home building industry put her far ahead of the pack. If you are looking for a true partner to help you start your home-buying journey, call Julie!"
Julie was by our side through the whole process! She helped to keep an eye out for homes coming on the market, told us how the process works and what to expect, provided advice about making the offer and additional inspections we should get, and more. Julie helped us get a house we can make our home!
When we met Julie, we were new to the Santa Cruz area & had just a basic idea of what we were really looking for in our new home. Within a few weeks, Julie helped us streamline our home search, while ensuring we were comfortable with every aspect of our decision. She then patiently worked with us & accompanied us on all our visits until we found our dream home.
Julie was a vital, patient, attentive, and caring realtor who helped us purchase our first home! When we first expressed interest in a place, we contacted Julie and four days later over a weekend we had an offer accepted! Julie went out of her way to make sure our questions were answered (even tracking down contacts at the HOA to answer specific questions about paint colors used), and made us feel cared for and well taken care of! On the day we got our keys, it was clear she was incredibly excited for us, and we were so grateful to have her guide us through the journey of buying our home.
