We had been in our Sonoma home for three decades so, when we decided to sell, we knew we had to find an experienced agent. Fortunately, we found Julie.
From the first time she came to our home, through the entire consultation process and ultimately on to the sale, Julie was calm, confident, creative, and persistent. But her real genius was guiding us through preparing our home for sale.
She suggested we modernize our landscaping, freshen the exterior paint colors, and install a new glass front door. She also suggested we vacate the home and stage it. It was hard to take the emotion out of what we put into our home over all these years, but once we started looking at the potential return on our investment, we went to work. We were amazed at the transformation – the results were eye-popping and the photos were gorgeous! Our home was fresh inside and out and really stood out in the neighborhood.
Julie was strategic in the way we marketed the home, using her network to generate interest in the home despite restrictions in place due to the coronavirus. Her enthusiasm, networking, hard work, and availability for showings created a lot of momentum. Amazingly she was able to attract multiple potential buyers and ultimately generated an offer OVER asking price. Her honesty, integrity, dedication, and skill helped us achieve a great result.
We were so lucky to have Julie lead our sale. We are proud to have worked with her and to call her our friend.
We had been searching for homes on our own with no luck, just a lot of wasted time. Within a week of meeting Julie, she found multiple compelling listings for us; and, we placed an offer on a dream home that met all of our criteria (which we closed on 3 weeks later). In addition, Julie was an excellent steward of the closing process and was on top of every single detail, while also elegantly managing the more the strategic elements of the contract which involved difficult counter parties to manage. We look forward to working with Julie again; she is the ultimate professional and a true partner, in every sense.
It was such a comfortable and pleasant experience working with you. We felt like you had our back. We appreciate all the time you spent on our purchase and spot-on advice!
We’d like to give an enthusiastic endorsement to Julie Leitzell’s professional prowess. We had been working with another agent who was putting all the pressure on us to find the home, find the loan, and figure out all the details. We asked Julie to step in and she took charge end-to-end. She found a very likely residence in a top location, she helped us preview the home before it was on MLS and before anyone else had seen it, she coordinated pre-emptive inspections and helped us find a lender who could secure our pre-approval quickly. We were all wrapped-up in a bow, ready to make our purchase. The net outcome is that we got our dream house in a multiple offer situation for a surprisingly good price. We can’t say enough about the way she guided us every step of the way. Competent, capable, caring – those three words sum-up her approach to client relationships. You owe it to yourself to consider Julie for your next real estate transaction.
Julie brought in the highest price to date for my model … and for the entire neighborhood for that matter. Her recommendations for timing, pricing and her team of property prep specialists were all key to making this as easy as possible for me.
FOUR offers and more than $300,000 over the list price on my home thanks to Julie’s market knowledge, beautiful photography and home website as well as pricing and negotiating strategy. Uncanny, because it played out exactly as she had predicted. My advice: hire and listen to Julie!
Julie’s responsiveness and attention to detail did not end after we closed. For every question and request, Julie responded as quickly as she did when we were in buying mode.
Julie is as thorough and responsive with a $1 million purchase as she is with a $4 million…. I know from first-hand experience. Even after the sale, she’s on it. Pedal to the metal, she got things done even under the most stressful of circumstances.
Without you I wouldn’t be a new condo owner. Thank you forever!
Julie was awesome, from soup to nuts. I was an out-of-town buyer, picky and not sure of what exactly I wanted. Julie took the time to take me around the area and had the best briefing package.
