Buying or selling a home is one of the biggest decisions you can make in your lifetime, and Julia promises to offer diligent service throughout this life-changing and exciting process. “I know that my clients put a lot on the line when buying and selling property,” she says. “Beyond the financial responsibility, there’s an emotional side that kicks in when someone is selling the home their kids grew up in or looking for a place to start a family. I respect those feelings and work hard to make sure my clients get the best service and my utmost attention. They come first.”
