Selling Your Home
My goal is to to sell your home for the highest value, in the shortest amount of time, under the most favorable terms. To do this I actively market my clients homes using a blend of online and traditional print marketing campaigns.
In today's market technology plays a huge role in sales. Over 92% of buyers will find their next home using the internet. It's never been more important work with an agent that understands how to showcase your home online.

Florida is one of the most popular markets in the United States for foreign residential investment. Having global reach has never been more important, thankfully RE/MAX listings are syndicated to over 1,000 different national and international websites.

Dear Julie, Tom and I want to thank you very much for all you have done for us. It took someone very special to take the time and effort to help us sell our condo. You made me feel special when you told me “don’t worry everything will work out OK”.
Pearl & Tom M.
“Julie was exceptional to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area and made sure she understood what was important to us. She was quick to return email and phone calls and provide answers to our questions. She was full of energy and offered her honest opinion on the properties she showed us. My wife and I can be difficult to work with and Julie made every step of the buying experience a pleasure. We would recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell property.”

“Julie was a breath of fresh air. She always responded in a timely manner, was flexible, thorough and very easy to work with. Her personal style was one that was always positive and pleasant.”
My mother and I used Julie’s services on three consecutive buy/sell agreements because we got such fantastic service from her. Our first transaction was the sale of her house on Treasure Island during the housing recession. She then worked with us on buying a condo in S. Pasadena. That process went very smoothly as well. And we recently finished selling that condo in less than 21 days! She takes care of every detail she can and helps with those that she can’t. She is always concerned about what is in her client’s best interest. It was really great working with her. Now that my mother no longer lives in Florida, we will miss Julie. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone needing the services of a friendly, competent, and thorough realtor.
