Julie was our realtor to help us sell our first special home and purchase a new special home for our family of 5. This process can be extremely emotional, especially when experiencing it during a rapidly moving market. It can be stressful, exciting, scary, and even a little heartbreaking sometimes. Julie was there with us through all of the steps no matter what it was. She advocated for us when things got tough. She was knowledgeable about the laws and rules and when new things came up she always had a team of support people she consulted with. When you are a client of Julie's, you are her priority. She wants to get you exactly what you need for yourself and/or your family and she will work until she meets your needs. She is respectful, caring, kind, and knowledgeable and I highly recommend her as a realtor.
My name is Maddie Landry, and my husband and I have just moved our family from Indiana to Colorado in July of this year. My husband has served in the Army and the Navy, so you could say that we are seasoned veterans when it comes to moving. Our children are 15, 13, and 12 and have lived in 7 different homes throughout their short lives. This time however, was not military related, we were just looking for better weather and have heard so many wonderful things about Colorado, that we decided to do some town/house hunting. Being members of USAA, we decided to use the home advantage program, where they find you a Realtor in the area that we are interested in. Wow, did we luck out! They gave us Julie Smiths name from ERA Herman Group and she was amazing and patient to say the least! As anyone knows from the Colorado area, the market is on fire! Houses were selling before we could even fly out here to look at them. We started looking in March and had the pleasure of meeting Julie as soon as we got here. With my husband’s job and having no family around, we pretty much needed to fit our house hunting into other peoples schedule so whenever we were able to fly out to Colorado, it was always last minute. Julie was so accommodating, that she always moved her schedule around in order to bring us to every location available that we were interested in. After flying back and forth four different times, we finally found our house, or so we thought. Julie had gone ahead and made the offer for us, just to have us change our mind the very next day. Then we found another house and had made yet another offer that was accepted. We flew Boston to stay with family and found out that there were some issues with the house that we just did not feel comfortable with so we pulled out of that offer as well. So now we are homeless, staying with family and stressed out that now things are getting time critical because we want our kids in a house before the start of school. We did some house hunting online and were planning to fly out the following weekend but were unable to. So, feeling like Julie really knew what we were looking for, we asked her to look at our list of homes for us and tell us what she thought. We bought our current house sight unseen because Julie told us that we would love it and she was right! We have been here just over six weeks and couldn't be happier. Everyone has something here. We have a huge yard for our dog, a theater room for the kids, a bar for my husband and a huge kitchen for me, so needless to say, Julie hit it out of the park. We have some friends who are also former military and are considering moving here, and we will be passing Julies name on to them because she really went above and beyond for us and I know that she will do the same for them.
We want to thank you so much
for all you did during our home purchasing process. It was
a five year process and her patience with us was amazing. My husband
and I went through a very hard time (as many did) during 2008 and lost our
home, business and my father. It took us awhile to get back on our
feet, but we knew leaving Las Vegas was the best thing we could
do. Our adventure with Julie started in LV with a simple email
saying we would love her help finding a home in CO. We didn't know
her, but she answered every email or call we sent her way.
She knew we were awhile out in qualifying for a home, but she never gave up on us. We moved to CO and 6 months later found out we were expecting our first child. Her continued belief in us was very reassuring. She sent us cards and messages for every holiday and/or occasion. To the exact day we could qualify she helped us find our forever home. She was determined to get us in a home before our second little one arrived. I was very emotional (very pregnant) during the entire purchasing process and she took care of everything. We moved in and our second little girl arrived 6 weeks later:).
I cannot recommend Julie enough. Her kindness and knowledge of the home buying business was amazing!
Thank you, Diana Drobney
“Julie was awesome she made us feel comfortable and at ease about selling our home. The market was all over the place but she showed us what was going on in our area and suggested a selling price letting us know that with all the bidding wars we could get above the asking price – we did! She handled everything with ease and took all the stress off of us so we could make our move as a family to our new location. We would recommend her to anyone selling a home whether relocating or just wanting something new; we wish we had had her on the other side of our move also.”
“Julie is incredible! She was tireless in gathering information, showing us homes, and helping us through the whole process. This was our eighth home that we have purchased, so we have a lot of experience with buying and selling homes. I give Julie my highest recommendation. You won't go wrong working with her.”
“As someone relocating from Southern California, I wanted to work with an agent that would listen to my needs. I trusted Julie from the start and she made my home buying experience a 5-star event. If you're buying or selling a home in Northern Colorado, I'd definitely recommend Julie Smith.”
"Julie was amazing with helping us find our dream home. She not only took the time to find out our needs and wants, but she worked around our crazy schedule. While on house tours, she even helped with rounding up my kiddos. She truly was a blessing to our family, and we appreciate all she did for us. From the start of looking at homes, through the entire negotiation and offer process, Julie took the stress off of our shoulders. She is not only competent but she is truly genuine in her demeanor and professionalism. We can't thank her enough for her help, and I can say with 100% confidence that you will not regret working with her. “
“We want to thank you for lending your expertise and personal attention to getting us into our new home. You went far above and beyond our expectations. Your attentiveness kept the entire approval process on track and we especially appreciate your warm heartedness and person ability while guiding us through our first home-buying experience. We will be sure to recommend you to everyone we know.”
“Julie optimized the entire process and has made this difficult task much easier for my wife and I. I highly recommend Julie, especially for future Ricoh personnel relocations to the Boulder site.”
“Our experience with Julie was simply the best. Julie understood our needs, and went above and beyond to make the entire process easy, comfortable, and stress-free!”
