We were so lucky to have Julie lead our sale
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 look forward to working with Julie again; she is the ultimate professional and a true partner, in every sense.
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.
We felt like you had our back.
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 can’t say enough about the way she guided us every step of the way
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.
Her recommendations for timing, pricing and her team of property prep specialists were all key
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.
My advice: hire and listen to Julie!
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.
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.
Even after the sale, she’s on it.
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.
Thank you forever!
Without you I wouldn’t be a new condo owner. Thank you forever!
Julie took the time to take me around the area and had the best briefing package.
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.
She was a true pro.
Julie worked tirelessly to get the house we wanted at the best price. Julie impressed us with her eye for value, and she was a true pro.
Resulted in us finding a perfect home.
We want to thank you for everything that you’ve done in the past few months that resulted in us finding a perfect home. Besides your hard work and persistence, it was a pleasure to work with you! Many many thanks again.
Low on sales pressure, high on expertise, energy and excellent advice.
Julie is the ‘un-agent’. Low on sales pressure, high on expertise, energy and excellent advice.
Without question, this experience was the best we have ever had.
Over the years we have bought 8 different homes through realtors. Without question, this experience was the best we have ever had. Any time we had a question on any issue, if Julie didn’t have the answer she immediately went to work finding it. Usually she was ahead of us and anticipated our needs. We felt the transaction was handled with complete integrity.
We were immediately impressed with her marketing ideas and pricing strategy
Our escrow was seamless thanks to Julie’s professionalism and her close management of the timeline of events that occurred within that period.’
Recently my wife and I decided to sell our home in San Rafael and move to San Anselmo. We interviewed a well-known agent in San Rafael and came away feeling concerned about her strategy for marketing our home and her lack of awareness about homes coming on the market within our desired area.
At the suggestion of a friend, we met with Julie Leitzell. We were immediately impressed with her marketing ideas and pricing strategy; both seemed customized to our home and our preferences. Julie made quick work of advising us on staging and organizing our home prior to going on the market. During this process, Julie was able to balance the need to be candid and decisive about how to market our home while being sensitive to our family’s needs and our timing restrictions. Our home was on the market for a very short time before going into contract with multiple offers. Our escrow was seamless thanks to Julie’s professionalism and her close management of the timeline of events that occurred within that period.
During our escrow, Julie had advance notice on several San Anselmo homes soon to be on the market. One of Julie’s many skills that benefitted us during this time was her accurate take on the homes we looked at; she was keenly aware of either good or bad qualities in a home that were not immediately apparent to us. While searching for a home to purchase, Julie canvased blocks of homes in San Anselmo, blanketed entire neighborhoods with nicely written letters of intent to purchase, and networked extensively on our behalf. I know that no stone was left unturned in her pursuit in finding us a home.
Julie drove by a house that had just come on MLS and called us right away. Within hours, we were discussing this property while Julie arranged for us to get in the very next day. We agreed the home was perfect for us and Julie set in motion a strategy to get us an accepted offer. At Julie’s recommendation we completed our home inspections prior to making a no contingency offer, which gave us a leg up among the other potential buyers. The fact that Julie knew the listing agent and each could vouch for the other’s integrity strengthened our position. Our offer was accepted and our escrow was very straightforward. Julie made the whole process seem so easy, but our situation was not typical; many homes on the market at the same time fell out of escrow due to the over-exuberance of buyers. Julie’s expertise and guidance allowed us to compete in a crazy market without resorting to drastic over-bidding or duplicitous behavior.
My family and I are now settled in our new home in San Anselmo and we couldn’t be happier. My wife and I value the time we spent working with Julie and consider her a friend. We both respect her unwavering commitment to her clients and strongly encourage anyone that is buying or selling a home to meet with her; we attribute our success in both selling our home in San Rafael and purchasing our new home in San Anselmo to Julie Leitzell.
