Julie is much more than a real-estate broker—she’s a new buyer’s best friend and a trusted advocate. As a young, single, first-time buyer, I was wholly intimidated by the home-buying process and the hyper-competitive Madison market. But within two weeks of working with Julie, I had a good feel for the market and felt informed and empowered to make a smart real-estate decision in a snap. Despite the fast pace of the market, Julie patiently answered all of my (many) questions and prepared me for every step of the journey. I was expecting to be looking for a home for months and months. Instead, I received an accepted offer within 30 days and closed on a house within 60 days of entering the market—never once feeling an ounce of buyer’s remorse. Julie made the home-buying process so much easier, faster, and more fun than I could have ever expected going into it. Julie possesses all of the traits that every real-estate professional should have (but many don’t): fast, organized, flexible, accessible, informed, prudent, realistic. But just as importantly, she’s a kind, funny, and patient person, and I came to value those traits all the same. I enthusiastically recommend working with Julie.
