"My wife and I had been looking for 3 winters, for a home with specific size, style and characteristics to qualify as our perfect retirement home. We wanted a spacious one story house with at least 1/4 acre yard and mature tropical plants. From the first moment we met Julia she struck us as being sophisticated and intelligent. She listened to the description of our perfect retirement home & said there happened to be a house on the market that sounded like our dream house. Her negotiating skill and experience allowed our dream to come true. It took awhile for our loan approval, and she kept the owners convinced that we would succeed. Throughout the entire time, Julia called us at least daily with status, and she did the same with the sellers. Because of her effort, we have our dream home in Carlsbad CA. She always outperformed our expectations, and she came to our home several times to help us fill out the endless forms & explain what they meant."
"Julia did a fantastic job in helping us find a townhome in Carmel Valley. She was great because she persevered in finding the right place for us after taking our needs into consideration. Besides being super hardworking, we felt she asked a lot of questions to find out what we wanted instead of just showing us what was available. She gave us honest recommendations and advised against as much as she advised for certain places, which we found useful and fair. We felt she actively negotiated on our behalf and was very on top of the entire process — two areas that we consider to be must-have characteristics in a good realtor. Overall, we were very happy with Julia and highly recommend her."
"We recently purchased a home in coastal San Diego - La Costa/Carlsbad, to be exact. My wife and I were first-time home buyers and we were looking for something affordable, with good schools, and with a yard (a tall order). When we were buying (March-May, 2015), inventory was severely low and we ran into a market that was flooded by cash and offshore buyers.
Before we found our home, we were outbid (above asking) on 8 separate properties. One of them at 20% over asking, cash, with no contingencies. At that point, we decided to go back to renting.
Julia said, "don't worry, I have a plan". She literally knocked on doors and started making phone calls. She found a home for us that wasn't listed on the MLS (it was unlisted!) and we were able to work out a very reasonable deal with the seller. It was a god send.
We've been in our new house for 6 months now and it now feels like home. We are so thankful for the hard work that Julia put in to find our home. She is easy to work with, tenacious, smart, and definitely resourceful. We are so grateful to her for her hard work - it changes our lives. Thanks, Julia!" - David
"I would describe Julia as very friendly, super professional, very patient, super knowledgeable, honest, totally awesome and just great.
Julia patiently drove us around different neighborhoods, she had the route all planned out, she had the houses in order, she gave us the packet so we could read about the house before we got there and amazingly enough we found the house of our dreams on the very first day of our house shopping adventure. And we submitted the offer on the same day.
Before we started house hunting we had a long conversation with Julia about what exactly we were looking for, she listened patiently and we didn't feel foolish at all asking any questions.
Julia made us feel comfortable. She was very accessible - you send her an email and she would respond instantaneously. She connected us with great lenders and we felt very secure and got all our questions answered.
Being in the military my husband doesn't have much spare time to shop for the houses, and Julia made the whole process so smooth and exciting for us.
Our transaction was not easy, it had a lot of contingencies and obstacles, in order for us to buy a house we had to sell first. Julia managed to pull it through so we got our dream house.
There is a huge competition among realtors here in San Diego, but we didn't hesitate to go with Julia, because we felt she was the one that we could trust." - Anastasia
