“I truly can't say enough about Julie and her amazing team! The professionalism, knowledge, and communication were incredible before, during, and after our home sale. Not only did we go under contract within the first few days, but Julie sold our home above the listing price. We completely trusted her and the process and would recommend Julie to anyone looking to sell.”
“Julie, our real estate agent, and their team deserve the highest praise for her exceptional work. She skillfully coordinated with us on staging, pre-inspection, and stunning updates to prepare our house for sale. This collaborative effort generated tremendous activity and resulted in a very tight contract, with negotiations exceeding our expectations by securing a sale price of $10k over the list price! Within an astounding three days, Julie sold our house, making it a seamless and speedy process. Her professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail made the entire experience a pleasure. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome, and we wholeheartedly recommend Julie as an outstanding real estate agent. Thank you, Julie, for your outstanding service!"
“Julie and Clive, they are the best team for sure! We recently worked with them to purchase the first property in Seattle. She is very detail oriented and professional. Julie and Clive have all the great aspects that agents should have. It was great experience to work with them. From now on, I'm only going work with them! Thank you, Julie!”
"Julie helped sell our home in Sammamish in 4 days, with multiple offers, and above asking. This may not seem like a big deal if we're talking 2020 or 2021, but she and her team helped pull this off during the Spring of 2023, after interest rates had been raised 10 times and the overall real estate market had gone dead during much of 2022. Besides being super knowledgeable about local markets, timing, sales data, and all things real estate - what is so special about Julie is that she seems to have an innate sense of the story of a home, who the ideal buyers are, and what types of features might best connect the home's story to the buyers. Julie provided us with great suggestions to help improve the marketability of our home, and she followed through with contractors, painters, and other tradespeople to implement the work quickly. The day we went on market we booked 7 appointments - which speaks to Julie's insightful strategy and top notch tactics. Julie is such a skilled realtor, a great communicator, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thank you!"
“Julie Taylor and team made the sale of my home look effortless, but their hard work in the background was evidenced by the quick sale of the home at 6% over asking price. Having received 14 offers within four days of listing, I was particularly grateful for Julie’s review of the offers and negotiation of the best possible buy/sell agreement for me. From marketing to closing, the team’s level of expertise and professionalism made the process unfold seamlessly.”
Tess, Buyer & Seller
“The whole team is wonderful! They worked around my crazy schedule, took the time to explain each step of the buying and selling process, negotiated great deals on both my sale and purchase, and were always available if I had questions! I could not be more pleased with our experience - 100% would recommend!”
“As a builder, we have worked with quite a few agents and brokers. Julie Taylor and her team were exceptionally responsive, professional and helpful. I would strongly recommend her for both buying and selling real estate.”
“Without question the best realtor I've ever dealt with. Smart, motivated, and always there when you need it. Sold our property in days and for more than list price.”
“Julie and Clive were an asset in the emotional selling of the family home. I was happy to let them take the reins while I dealt with the complications of loss and also not living locally. Despite the declining market, the house was sold in 4 days, allowing me to move on with my life - all while presenting the house in a way that my family would have been proud. Many thanks.”
Sheri & Roger, Sellers
“Julie Taylor, Clive Egdes and the team at Windemere are the best! We greatly appreciated their clear communication, professionalism and expert recommendations, from pre-inspection updates to home staging. Julie Taylor and team's vast experience and knowledge of the Kirkland real estate market resulted in several quality offers in just three days, and an unprecedented sale 40 percent ($1 million) above asking price. We confidently recommend Julie Taylor and her team!”
“Julie and her team made our 1st home buying experience so easy, which is saying a lot in the current climate. Dominique was a pleasure to work with and extremely patient helping us find the right place during our hunt and then Julie jumped in to help close the deal and get our offer accepted! They also work with a great network of people that made the entire closing process so seamless that we were able to close a week early. Their attention to detail continues even after closing with following up on a few outstanding items on our new build home which really solidifies that we made the right choice in working with her team! Can't thank them enough for guiding us through this process and we are so excited for our new home!”
“Julie and Clive are the real estate team you want on your side! They know the area. They thrive in this incredibly fast pace market. And they have the deep expertise and deal advice that guided me to get the sale done quickly. I highly recommend working with this expert team!”
“Julie Taylor and her team are absolutely top notch! She helped us purchase our first home and we couldn't be more thankful for her kindness and patience, insight and expertise, professionalism, and superb negotiation skills. We highly recommend her, and look forward to working with her again when it comes time to sell. Thank you so much, Julie & Team!!”
“Julie and her team were FABULOUS in every way! This was an estate sale and emotions were high. The involved parties often at odds with how to proceed and Julie handled the difficulties with poise, ease, clarity and help at every turn. I can confidently say this sale would not have happened with any other real estate agent! Julie kept everyone on track, was always available and patient. She foresaw problems and planned for them before they happened to keep the transaction in play. Julie took a very difficult situation with difficult personalities and made lemonade! On top of that, she made well over market price. Amazing!”
“Julie and her team delivered beyond our expectations, enabling a sale that brought 18.4% over our list price within one week of listing the property and under all the terms we wanted. We relied on her team to handle nearly every aspect of the process, including arranging for cleaning, painting, pre-inspection, staging, yard cleanup, window washing, and other details. We trusted her to make it easy for us and she absolutely did that. Everything was top notch. The entire effort could not have gone any better. We strongly recommend Julie and her team.”
“Julie and her team were fantastic in helping me to purchase a condo. She walked me through the whole process step by step, and pointed out a lot of info that I didn't even think about, as I was first-time buyer and very out of my element. The whole process was very easy for me, and I'm quite happy with where I ended up.”
“An outstanding professional that created, directed and completed the best real estate experience. Exceeded all expectations for timing, client communication and financial results. Julie is a real estate broker that is totally reliable and true to her word in all aspects of the listing, showing and negotiation processes. Thanks so much, Rich”
“Julie helped us buy our first home in this super competitive market. We had heard such horror stories about trying to buy a home in the Seattle area, but working with Julie made it a dream! She was the dream combination of friendly, profession, and incredibly good at her job. She went out of her way to teach us about the ins-and-outs of the buying process to make sure we were never surprised or taken off-guard by a development in the process, and answered all of our questions (no matter how dumb!) She gave us advice on how to put together a really competitive offer without ever pressuring us, and with her help our first offer was accepted and we got a condo that we are just in love with. Thank you thank you Julie, anyone would be lucky to get the chance to work with you!”
“Julie Taylor and her entire team are the best in the business. Julie in particular is absolutely the best real estate agent in the world. I procrastinated about selling my house for several years. I needed help with updates and renovations, but wasn't sure where to start or how to get it done. Julie is one of a kind, and truly a one-stop shop. There's nothing she doesn't know how to handle. I her asked for a small miracle. I wanted to totally update the interior of my house and yard and have it on the market in 30 days. When I met with Julie, within 30 minutes she laid out the entire plan of how to get it done. She quoted all the costs for everything including painting, countertops, fixtures, floors, garage. And she had all the trades and vendors available immediately. She picked the colors, fixtures, hardware, even the landscaping. And she meticulously managed everyone including me. I had some reservations about how all this could get done, but 30 days later the house was ready to go. The house and yard was literally unrecognizable, seemingly overnight. And as I soon discovered, that was only the beginning. Where she really shines even more is in the sale with marketing, brochures, advertising, staging, and open house. And then on top of all that, where the rubber meets the road, she's an extraordinarily expert negotiator and communicator. The house sold on day 2, and was an epic success. I told my closest friends this was truly a miracle. They said there was no miracle here, you hired the right people. Amen to that! Thank you so much Julie and your entire team! You were so very wonderful to work with. I feel so lucky and blessed.”
"Julie and her team know what they are doing and what will be attractive to buyers. We had no idea where to start or what to improve before going to market. She made recommendations and called upon her resources to schedule painters, carpeters, light carpentry, etc. We were ready to list in 4 weeks, listed for 5 days, received 23 offers over listed price, and sold for $144,000 (20%) over list price. She even ushered the close process through and we closed 5 days early."
Cheryl, Seller & Buyer
“We were so lucky to work with Julie Taylor and Team to both purchase and sell a home in 2020-2021 in Kirkland and Bellevue, WA! We purchased a home in an extremely competitive area in Bellevue, WA in October 2020 and sold our home in Kirkland, WA in March 2021. This was our first time selling a home and our second time purchasing a home and both processes went incredibly smoothly! The real estate market is *very* competitive for buyers right now and Julie and Team were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and FUN to work with! Julie went above and beyond in all aspects of the home sale and purchase; for example, when selling our home she was involved in landscaping and interior home upgrade decisions and helped organize a handy man and other logistical elements. When purchasing our home she was extremely detail oriented and did absolutely everything possible to position us favorably so we were able to successfully purchase our home in a market where people are frequently outbid. Additionally, when looking at houses Julie proved to be an incredibly thorough and open listener; she helped us wade through so many different competing priorities and moments of complete overwhelm. She was a calm and confident presence during what is, for most people, one of the most stressful financial decisions of their lives. We cannot recommend Julie Taylor and Team highly enough!”
“Julie is incredible. She helped us sell two homes in the Seattle area, and both times they sold greatly over list price with multiple offers. She has a great strategy that caters to the home, our needs, and the market, and what we value most is her ability to connect to other realtors and buyers to really create a relational dynamic in the process. She is easy to work with, has a great team, and knows how to get it done quickly. We are so lucky to be able to work with her!”
Travis, Buyer & Seller
“This is the second time working with Julie who initially helped us as first time homebuyers. Following her recommendations, we were able to get our offer accepted on a house that we loved in a tough seller's market and received a double digit number of offers on our first home that sold for MUCH higher than list price. What more can you ask for?”
“Stephanie was absolutely amazing in assisting me with the purchase of my first home! She is so knowledgeable, and was so responsive which was really appreciated by me! Julie and Stephanie go above and beyond assisting their clients in making sure they are aware of every single detail involving the purchase of their home. I am so happy! Thank you Stephanie & Julie!”
Angela, Seller & Buyer
“We worked with Julie Taylor & Team for both selling our house in Renton, and purchasing a house on Mercer Island. We felt like we hit the jackpot with having Julie sell our house. She's incredibly knowledgeable about the area, is a fierce negotiator, and expertly guided us through preparing and staging our home. We accepted an offer within 4 days of listing! She's truly a powerhouse-- and we're so grateful she was OUR powerhouse. Our experience working with Stephanie Hunziker to purchase our Mercer Island home was wonderful. Stephanie is incredibly professional, polished, forthright, knowledgeable and kind. Even when we started to despair over a lack of homes in our desired area, Stephanie’s calm and competent demeanor helped keep us focused. Stephanie was always extremely responsive, and had our best interests at heart. I honestly will miss talking regularly with both Julie and Stephanie now that we’ve found our home!”
Katina, Seller & Buyer
“Julie Taylor and her team are hands down The Best! There are many great realtors out there and we’ve worked with others but Julie differentiates herself in 2 ways. 1) Communication: She asks the right questions to get you to be clear on what you want/need from your purchase or sale. She also keeps you informed about every single thing happening with your home process. You never have to wonder what’s happening. 2) She is the Queen of Details. From the gorgeous staging, to any issues that arise with contracts, to getting a lock smith to come out when you get to your new place and realize one of the bedrooms is locked without a key (true story!), she and her team handle everything! Buying and selling a home has never been so stress free. I’ve recommended her to all my friends and family and my sister is buying and selling with her right now.”
“Second time working with Julie and her team and a second great experience! She helped guide us through the process of helping get our home ready to sell during these crazy COVID times and was flexible with multiple timeline changes due to it. Excellent and prompt with communication. House sold quickly, with multiple offers, did well above asking.”
Melissa, Seller & Buyer
Julie and her Team are VERY attentive to every detail in the purchase/sale purchase of a new home. We felt like all of our concerns, questions and issues were addressed in a timely manner with frequent email check ins, phone calls & texts. Julie is a great negotiator and always willing to go above and beyond. I have never experienced this level of service from any other realtor. Way to go Team!
“Julie Taylor and Team saved my house sale. I was into the last phase of a 12+ month renovation when I was forced to relocate for my job. I was having multiple issues with my contractor and the house was far from ready (for sale). Julie Taylor stepped in, organized and managed multiple trades to finish and fix the multiple issues not addressed by the original contractor. Without Julie and Team, I would not have sold, or received the offer in the price range I wanted. Julie and Team know the market, trends, and educated me on how the house should be finished and priced to maximize the sale. The communication was excellent, they were straight with me, good and bad. Selling a home is an emotional experience and I am sometimes difficult to work with. Julie understood me and made the overall experience much better. I have bought a house with Julie and I have sold a house with Julie. My family loves Julie Taylor!! If / when I move back to Seattle, without hesitation, I will call on Julie Taylor and Team.”
Asem, Seller & Buyer
“This was our first time buying a resale house and selling our own in a very competitive market, and we had no idea how involved the process was. That being said, Julie made things really easy and stress-free for us, guiding us through every step of the process, answering all of our detailed questions, checking-in on us every couple of days, and advising us on what to do and what not do for when it comes to determining listing price, offer negotiations, inspections, house fixes, and pretty much anything you can think of. Thank you Julie and Team for all your tireless efforts!”
Zahraa, Seller & Buyer
“We just purchased a house and sold our own (for 60K plus asking!) through Julie. We had no prior experience doing that. Julie is really knowledgeable about the real estate business, and she explained the process for us really well. She's very responsive when you have any question or issue along the way. Her advice is also really valuable. She gives you her valuable and professional opinion without pushing you. We're really glad we went with Julie!”
“Julie was great to work with. This was my first home purchase and she made the process so much easier than I could have expected. Really appreciated her responsiveness, knowledge, and genuine investment in making sure we felt in control of the process. We love our home and appreciate Julie's role in ensuring that we beat the competition and felt confident in our purchase!”
“I have worked with Julie for multiple transactions, she has been very helpful throughout everything! The staging and pictures looked amazing. I can't imagine going through buying/selling without her!”
“Julie got our house on the market and by the weekend we had a full offer. Her team of professionals got the house staged, had the yard maintained, and came up with a list of items to polish. That eye for detail made the process simple.”
Elaine, Seller & Buyer
"Julie and her team are the best! They helped us sell our house and also purchase our new house. We went escrow to escrow within a week of selling and buying. We didn't realize what a complex process is involved. They were with us each step of the way. Support and guidance outstanding. Between emails, phone calls and texting communication was fast and efficient."
Josh, Seller & Buyer
“We've been building up to the selling of our condo and purchase of a home for over two years. Julie has kept an open ear and talked us through timing, our concerns, and offered insights on the market. When the time came, Julie and her team helped us understand what we needed to do to get our condo ready for sale, talked us through the process, timelines, and what we should expect every step of the way. Julie and her family & team went out of their way to help us through the process as we had recently changed jobs, gotten a puppy, and made the process easy. Julie was able to quickly get our house to market with us, and under contract so that we could transition to the home purchase process. Every step of the way her or her team was quick to respond to any questions, concerns, or to provide feedback on our own ideas. Can't recommend her enough.”
“Julie and her team are fantastic and went the extra mile in selling my home. I would recommend her to anyone who may be wanting to sell or buy! What I liked about Julie is she knows the area in which she sells. She is honest and trustworthy and a pleasure to work with.”
"We were first time home buyers looking for a place in Bellevue and did not know on how to go about purchasing a house. We researched realtors in Bellevue and narrowed the list down to 3 realtors. Julie was our first choice and after our first meeting, we felt so comfortable that we didn't bother reaching out to the other two and went with Julie.
Julie was amazing to work with and is very trustworthy. We felt through the entire process that she had our best interest every step of the way. In addition, she was very responsive and would make time to answer our questions late in the evening or on weekends. She worked with us on weekends to show various properties and discuss potential offers. Further Julie was very thorough in everything she did. She was very knowledgeable and offered deep insight on some properties. When she did not know the answer to a question, she checked and got back to us rather than giving an incorrect response on the spot. She kept track of everything that had to be done on time and helped us to close on a tight timeline.
I strongly recommend Julie and would use her again in the future."
Noreen, Seller & Buyer
“Julie, Stephanie, and Lindsey were a fabulous team! They helped sell our home with multiple offers and helped buy/negotiate our new home. They handling everything from start to finish. Highly recommend Julie and her team”
“We were first time home buyers and were fortunate enough to be referred to Julie and her team. We got our first offer accepted on the home that was our top choice. We will definitely be seeking her help for any realty needs in the future, whether it is selling or buying. Communication was prompt, whether it was Julie or one of her team members our questions were always answered thoroughly and within the same day. Julie was able to negotiate a closing agreement well below the asking price and was able to negotiate added amenities as well, such as having the builder install a fireplace unit for us. She was also able to secure a seller concession, lowering our total closing costs by nearly 50%. As first time buyers (and naturally more reserved people), my wife and I were not sure how much to ask of the sellers. Julie readily stepped up as an advocate for us and helped ensure that the home met her standards by the time we moved in (such as getting settling cracks fully repaired and ensuring all inspection items were completed). We can't recommend Julie and her team highly enough!”
"Julie Taylor helped us buy our very first home. She was very personable and gave us expert guidance about the Bellevue Real Estate Market as we looked at multiple homes and helped us land our dream home in the zip code we were targeting and helped us close under a very tight timeline at a great valuation. She was absolutely amazing to work with, very patient with all our questions and I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy a home.”
Matt, Seller & Buyer
"Julie is a true professional. I have been so impressed by the level of service we have received from her and her team. She is extremely responsive, well-prepared and treats you like you are her most important client. She makes time to educate you on the process and weigh options before making decisions. Julie is a great negotiator and a very gifted marketer. She adds value in areas you wouldn't expect and is always a step ahead on items that need to be taken care of. I would definitely work with Julie again and recommend her to others looking to buy and/or sell a home."
"Julie is a reliable woman and an excellent agent. In the past few months, she and her team had been helping us to sell our new house. They are very proactive, energetic, knowledgeable and highly responsible. The team is always on task and on time. About Julie, she always brought up lots of new thoughts and ideas, and is very good at following up with her customers. Although it's short period of time, we are pleased to work with Julie and her team. Looking forward to work with her again!"
"My husband and I used Julie on the advice of a friend and we were not disappointed! Julie Taylor has an innate talent for setting appropriate expectations and negotiation the very best deal possible. I would recommend Julie Taylor to any friend or family member."
"I highly recommend Julie Taylor and her Team to help buy or sell your home. She was the listing agent on my home and received several offers. We selected the best offer and closed the entire transaction within 2 weeks. I truly feel we could not have closed this home faster with any other agent. She had our best interest the entire time. I highly recommend her."
“The Julie Taylor team was very responsive and accommodating to our needs. We had a three day window to find a property in Washington State and then another 3 weeks to close before our move. Her team worked quickly to identify available properties and worked around the clock with the Escrow agent to meet our stringent closing date. All of our expectations were met by her team and we closed on our new home on schedule. We could not have found a more reputable or reliable agent. We feel that we found the No. 1 agent in the area and would highly recommend the Julie Taylor Team to anyone. During the whole process, my wife and I felt that we were working with a friend, not just an agent.”
"Julie and her team did a masterful job selling our property. Her team immediately began the marketing process and within a week had negotiated several offers and finalized on one of them! Not only did she get immediate results but the whole process was made very easy and convenient! I strongly recommend Julie Taylor and her team!"
“A huge THANK YOU to Julie Taylor and Team! The attention to detail they took in preparing our house to put on the market was exceptional. They went above and beyond all our expectations and expertly negotiated the winning cash offer - which was above list price - after only four days on the market! The entire process was as stress free as possible and I highly recommend this stellar team without hesitation!”
"Julie was fabulous! Julie and her Team understood our situation of closing within 30 days! They tackled the obstacles with a sense of urgency and exceeded our expectations! We are beyond grateful for their hard work and attention to detail!"
"Julie Taylor and her team were knowledgeable, confident, friendly and very easy to deal with. We put our condo on the market on a Thursday and it sold the following Tuesday for more than we had hoped for and with no contingencies."
“Julie and her team are absolutely amazing! From the first time we met Julie we felt confident that she would expertly guide us through the process of selling our home, and she exceeded all of our expectations. Julie is professional, warm, knowledgeable and has an incredible attention to detail. I couldn't recommend her more highly!“
"Amazing! Our transition was flawless because of Julie’s outstanding service from beginning to the end! Because of her exceptional service, we are able to move in to our new home as we arrive and not have to stay in a hotel!"
"Julie and her team were very impressive. From our first meeting she treated us with respect, confidence, humility, honesty and valuable insights. Furthermore, she really listened to our comments and followed up on intricate details. We recommend her without hesitation."
“Julie and her team are great! In this competitive market where houses are selling way above asking she was able to get us into our first home AT listing price! We will definitely use Julie in the future. “
“Don't think I can ever find an agent better than Julie - which means if you are working with Julie and her team you are in luck. We recently purchased a house and we had a lot of questions during this process. Julie was extremely helpful/knowledgeable and provided all the information we needed along the way. Buying a house is a big hassle, but if you are working with Julie you are in good hands. I would certainly highly recommend her to anyone I know and use her service again myself in the future! “
"There were 20 offers on the house we wanted to buy, we were the fourth highest offer....and we got it! That's not luck--that's what you get when you work with Julie. It was our first time buying a house, so needless to say we had no idea what we were doing. Julie guided us through every step, was always available to talk and answer any questions. Her team and everyone she recommended to us were amazing. My wife and I kept waiting for something to go wrong, but then we closed and realized that due to Julie's guidance, this was one of the smoothest processes I've ever been through. I have and will continue to recommend Julie to everyone looking for a home."
"Julie and her team were nothing short of amazing when it came to our home buying experience. She was ruthless for us, allowing my husband and I to secure a home even when we were the fourth highest of 20 offers! She was with us every step of the way making it easy for us as first time home buyers to know were making well informed decisions at every turn. Thank you Julie!"
"Julie and her team got us quickly to market and kept us constantly informed throughout the process. This led to accepting an offer for $25k over asking just 5 days after listing!"
“My fiance Oliver and I are still floating on our cloud, in awe that we actually bought our first home. This would not have been possible without the right team helping you find that perfect home and we definitely scored with Julie and her team!! Right off the bat Julie took the time to take care of us with her amazing introduction presentation when we first met. And then she continuously blew us away by her stellar communication whether it be via email, text or phone calls. There is never a time where we felt we couldn't ask her a question if we were unsure of anything, and as for first time home buyer's - we needed a lot of hand holding. Our home today was the 2nd home we made an offer and we knew right away that this was the home to go all in and Julie made it happen!! All in all, we definitely would recommend Julie to friends and family if they are looking to buy or even sell a home. She is a treasure trove of information and the right person to have your back when you need to win that home.“
“Julie and her team were amazing servicing every detail of my real estate needs! We had a complex transaction come up that was handled well. Julie was able to get top dollar for my property in a short time exceeding my expectations."
“Julie Taylor and her team did an excellent job of guiding us through the sale process, from the pre-planning phase (pre-inspection, recommending contractors, figuring out what would make the house most attractive and thus salable), the sale itself (terrific staging, open houses), to the actual sale process itself. She helped us through every step of the way.”
Taylor, Seller & Buyer
“Julie and her team found a way to sell our home for greater than 20% of listing price. Do you actually need to know more? Well if you do, you should know that Julie was always very responsive and helped us list, stage, show and get to mutual within 7 days. My wife and I are extremely busy so she even sent some of her team mates to our home to help pack. I’m highly skeptical of real estate agents due to bad experiences in the past, so the fact that I’m so positive about Julie and her team should speak volumes.”
“My wife and I could not be happier with Julie and her team. We wanted someone who would give us all the guidance and tools we needed to sell quickly and at top dollar. The dates for listing our house and closing on the sale we’re just 30 days apart, and we chose from 6 different offers! Julie and her team are professional, have great contacts, and have a knack for reading the market to help you get top dollar for your house. You won’t go wrong with her!”
“My girlfriend and I recently closed on our first home and we can't thank Julie enough! My friend, whose recommendation is somewhere below, put us in contact with Julie after using her to buy 2 homes and selling his condo over a several year period. If Julie wasn’t our realtor, we firmly believe we would have lost out on our home. There were 2 other offers on the table that were higher and she somehow convinced the sellers to select our offer. After initially thinking we were going to lose our dream home, we were ecstatic! We highly recommend Julie and will definitely work with her in the future.“
“Julie sets the gold standard for realtors with unparalleled responsiveness and professionalism, but without any of that too-slick oiliness that I associate with stereotypical realtors. My husband and I interviewed six local realtors before selecting Julie, and we couldn't be happier. We chose Julie because the Seattle market was overwhelming to us, having only just moved to the area a few months ago. We were first-time home buyers with no knowledge of the region and a budget better suited to sleepy Spokane than Seattle's cutthroat Eastside market. We knew that, if we wanted to win a house that checked all of our boxes in this crazy city, we would need the knowledge, experience, strategic mind, and powerful negotiating tactics that Julie brought to the table. Additionally, she worked extremely well with the wonderful mortgage officer we selected (Todd Patterson at Academy). They communicated constantly amongst each other to ensure the whole process went as planned. Our choice was rewarded when, with Julie's savvy guidance, we were able to avoid a bidding war that would have quickly left us in the dust by cleverly snatching the house off the market before that could happen. We closed in a super-quick two weeks, and we are now living in a home we'll be able to grow into over the next ten years. If we had selected another realtor, I honestly don't know if our transaction would have gone as brilliantly as it did. I've already recommended Julie's team to two colleagues, and wouldn't hesitate to do the same “
“Julie Taylor and her team are simply the BEST! She is very professional, knowledgeable of the market and always available no matter if its weekend, late night or early morning, which is great for people with busy schedules. Julie is very fast and efficient with her work, always gets it done to the best extent. Recently, we bought our second house with her and she was able to negotiate a great deal for us below the highest bid! Can't say enough ...”
Casey, Seller & Buyer
“Julie was a wonderful realtor whose vast experience with the Seattle and Eastside market helped us tremendously on both the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new one. She has personally lived in various places through the Seattle area and the Eastside, so I really trusted her recommendations on some of the intangibles that extended beyond what was on the listing. She took the time to take us through neighborhoods, considered access to freeways and commute routes, and provided an inside view into the neighborhoods we were looking at. For the sale, Julie expertly staged our home, hired the right professionals to make it the best it could be for the showings, and managed to turn everything around in a week to meet the timelines we were looking for! We were lucky enough to receive several offers and everything was expertly vetted, organized, and presented. Best of all, the winning offer we received was more than 20% over our list price, and we could not have done it without her!!! Highly recommend Julie and her fabulous team without hesitation.”
“Julie helped with the purchase of our first home, and I have nothing but high praises for her and her team! In a competitive market like Seattle, she was able to negotiate $4000 off the list price, on an almost brand new house with multiple offers. She expertly negotiated with the sellers again to allow us to switch lenders at the eleventh hour as we were getting a better rate, while still managing to close on time! She has been very responsive to our queries - be it over phone or emails, and provided timely status updates on everything. She also let us keep the lovely patio furniture for free, which was the cherry on top :) I would sincerely recommend Julie Taylor and her team!“
"My husband and I just closed on our first home and we couldn't have done it without Julie's guidance and expertise! She's extremely knowledgeable not only about the market, but also about how to make an extremely competitive offer based on the specific situation. We were able to snag our home before they even held the open house and negotiate a $1,250 credit after inspection! We worked with Julie for a couple months before finding our home and she was very responsive and wonderful to work with the whole time. She answered my endless string of questions and gave great advice. She kept us in the loop throughout the entire closing process, made sure we understood what was going on, and took great care of us. We'd absolutely work with her again!”
"It was fantastic to work with Julie and her team! I am a first time buyer and Julie guided me through the entire administrative process as well as explaining to me the strategy of successfully negotiating an offer. She negotiated $12,000 off the list price, with the property being on the market for less than two weeks, on the first expertly crafted offer.
I highly recommend Julie and would choose her and her team again in the future.”
Craig, Buyer & Seller
“We used Julie again! Our second and third transaction with her in three years. She sold our condo within a week for 50k over asking and got us a multifamily in a competitive Seattle market.
If you have a friend or family member as your realtor, ditch them for Julie. They will understand once Julie sells your place for more or gets you into a place faster. Julie is an expert negotiator and knows her stuff and the Seattle market. Don't make a mistake and use somebody else. We've referred her to friends and she has not let down anybody.”
"Julie might be the most knowledgeable agent I have ever had a chance to work with. She was always several steps ahead in the process and we never felt lost or confused. I can't recommend her enough and you will truly be blessed to work with her and her team."
Sandra, Buyer & Seller
"Julie Taylor's expertise and knowledge is outstanding! She understands trends in the marketplace and was able to list my house at the perfect time. It sold within a matter of days for $30k over asking! I've worked with her in the past and will continue to enlist her services for years to come. I highly recommend Julie Taylor & Team, especially if you appreciate stellar service, honest feedback and thoughtful insight. Whether you are buying or selling, Julie will go above and beyond to make sure your experience is one to remember!"
Ben, Buyer & Seller
“This is the 3rd time we used Julie's expertise in real estate. She helped us sell a condo in 3 days and a house in 4 days. Julie also used her expert negotiations in a bidding war to secure the house we wanted. Julie and her team are great, always there to answer questions and help us through all the paperwork. Julie is a joy to work with and I will recommend her to anyone.”
“My very best friend recommended her Real Estate Agent to me and when she declined because she only worked in the West Seattle area I asked her for a referral on the East Side. So it was blind faith going in when I asked Julie Taylor to be my agent. And it was nothing less than total serendipity. I couldn't have been more pleased, better taken care of, and steered in the right direction whenever I started going astray. She's the consummate professional, knowing how to tactfully inform someone like myself about the in's and out's of the real estate market without making me feel like a dunce. The photo shoot and layout she did for my condo was spectacular. My place sold in 4 days with an offer of $15,000 over my asking price. If you have no idea where to look for an honest, reliable, and professional real estate agent that will be there for your best interests, now you do.”
"I am new to home buying and Julie went above and beyond coaching me through the process, informing me about different steps and answering any questions and concerns I had as they came up! I have heard horror stories from people I know having to put bids on 10+ houses in this competitive market before getting their offer accepted. With Julie, this will not be an issue as negotiating is not just another part of the job for her but a passion of hers! She managed to get my offer accepted from multiple other offers on the FIRST home I put an offer on! It was very comforting knowing I had Julie (the Ace of Spades of negotiating) for me when I found out there were multiple offers on the home I wanted. Most importantly, Julie is genuinely a great person. It was nice to have someone I could fully trust and would fight for my best interests throughout this process! I am a firm believer if you do business with good people, good things will happen as was the case with choosing Julie!”
"Julie is the most competent agent we have dealt with over the sale of five homes and the purchase of six homes. We worked with her to handle the recent purchase of our home in Issaquah, WA. She is an expert negotiator, and she was highly professional and timely for addressing all of our needs in the process of our home search, including viewing homes, making an offer, the actual purchase, interacting with our home loan agents, interacting with the sellers, working with the home inspection team, and finalizing the deal with escrow. We cannot say enough to how easy she made this transaction seem and we highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home. Also, she is very knowledgeable of the Pacific Northwest markets and the Eastside and Seattle areas."
"Julie Taylor is an essential must have agent. Her insight to the home buying process, new home construction ins and outs, as well as attentiveness to client's needs makes her an exceptional real estate agent. She walked, coached, and guided us through the entire process (pre and post). Her knowledge base is immeasurable. She is simply the best. She will definitely rep us when we decide to sell."
“You could not be in better hands if you chose Julie! She stood with us through a long and ugly purchase process when we bought our house in 2012. No matter how many times we had to stop and start she was always there. Even 5 years after our house purchase she still went out of her way to research and answer a title question I had about our property.
We knew we had to use her again during the sale of my husband's property. She made the sale a seamless and easy process and helped us rush the closing.
I will not use another Real Estate agent when the time comes to sell our house. If I could, I would fly her to Florida and have her help us purchase our next house there.
I could not recommend Julie more. You will not be sorry to have Julie represent you.”
"To have real estate agent who walks with you through the entire process, treats the deal as if she is purchasing the home for herself, walks through the new construction in bare feet so she can feel the quality of the carpet padding as well as the quality of the of the carpet and the installation, looking at the structure of the walls, the installation of the windows, staying on top of the landscaping concerns, and unafraid to bring issues to the developer's attention with such respect and professionalism that the developer expresses that they appreciate her input.....THAT'S JULIE TAYLOR. We never felt like we were her "commission", but more like we were family. We have been in the house for weeks, and she still contacts my husband to see how things are. Her responsiveness and assurance let me know that we were being well taken care of, and that she had our best interest at heart. Julie Taylor is the best!!!"
Rich, Seller & Buyer
“Julie listed and sold our home in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Renton. She also represented us on the purchase of a home on Lake Wilderness as part of a double-deal.
Julie and her staff have the whole package that you need in a real estate team. Great customer service. Proactive, they are on top of things we didn't even think of. Can't be at home for a service? They'll handle it for you. Can't find a contractor? They will. Think you need to light a fire under a title company or a loan officer? She's probably already did it before you even thought about it.
Julie knows her craft well. She's a perfect attendant when she shows an open house. Charming, attentive to all prospects, not overly pushy. My wife and I first met Julie when she was showing an open house in our neighborhood when we weren't even serious buyers. We were up front about that. But she was so professional in dealing with us, but not pushy. She stuck out so much in my mind that we went back to her a year later when we decided to list. My skeptical wife thought I chose her because she was attractive with a million dollar smile. But after us working with her, I got props for having the right intuition to list with her. My wife is now a huge fan as well.
I don't trust that realtors always treat my interest with equal regard to their own, but Julie really worked to get the best offer on our listing rather than have the typical "sell-it-and-bank-it" attitude that many other Realtors have.
The deals would not have closed with a lessor Agent. I am sure of that. Julie even got us the full $10K earnest money when a buyer backed out.
I've bought and sold about 8 homes. No other agent is as talented as Julie.”
"Julie Taylor was an amazing Realtor! She was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond with her customer service. She sincerely had our best interests at heart and excelled with our house buying transaction. I would highly recommend Julie to everyone."
Katie & Andy, Sellers
“Julie was amazing! She sold our condo and had it closed all within 2 weeks. She made the whole process seamless and went above and beyond to help us even though we lived 300 miles away! We would definitely call her to sell any of our properties and would highly recommend her to anyone who was looking for a realtor!”
"My husband and I met Julie and we were immediately impressed by her expertise and knowledge of our neighborhood. We have bought and sold several homes in the recent past and Julie and her team were very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Frankly, we were not used the level of service we received and we were delighted. Prior to putting our home on the market we met with Julie and we discussed the market analysis she had prepared and based on her recommendation we agreed on a selling price. Then Julie and her team went to work! They helped us with all of our staging and immediately held a brokers open followed by an open house which generated a lot of interest. Our home sold within a few weeks. Julie is a very effective negotiator and we are thrilled with the resulting sale. The customer service we received while the sale was in progress was over the top and so helpful. Julie and her team are the best and we highly recommend her!"
Kim, Buyer & Seller
“We are first time buyers and sellers. Based on several reviews on different websites, we found Julie. We first contacted her, she was very quick to respond via email and shortly after we meet her face to face. She and her team are very well coordinated and responded very quickly to our concerns. As a seller, our house was staged for free by Julie, quickly sold within 1 week. She helped us select the best offer with free lease back. As a buyer in a very competitive market, she helped us buy by making our offer just a bit more likable. All thanks to Julie and her team. We feel very confident with her quality and we learned a lot from this awesome experience. We highly recommend Julie and her team!”
"Julie helped me to sell my condo. I had a buyer within 3 days. That’s amazing. Julie is organized, detail orientated and knowledgeable. She and her Team are always available for questions and concerns. She is a great and wonderful agent. I highly recommend her.”
"We were so fortunate to work with Julie. From the beginning she was personable, friendly, and professional. Her knowledge about the industry is apparent and her uncanny ability to read people and situations were amazing to watch. She was able to negotiate $5,000 off list price and another $5,500 at the inspection. On top of that, we were on a tight schedule and Julie found a way for us to close a few days early. Julie and her team supported us throughout the entire process and continue to check in with us, which we truly appreciate. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie for her patience, expertise, and attention to detail. They are a winning combination. We found the perfect home for our family and couldn't be happier."
"We met Julie Taylor in 2012 when we first attempted to buy a house. She was friendly and quickly assessed our taste and budget and within a month we had put in an offer on a house. Unfortunately we lost the deal due to a financial crisis on our part. Over the years Julie regularly kept in touch with us with information about the market and a genuine interest in our behalf. This June over a phone conversation Julie mentioned a few financial strategies and we decided to act on purchasing a home. Again Julie was able to assess our new financial state and we quickly put in an offer on a home. With a quick counter we accepted a deal that got us the house for $10K under its appraisal value! The closing process went smoothly and Julie and her team kept us well informed through the process. I would highly recommend Julie Taylor and her team!"
"Julie is an excellent agent. She listened to what we wanted and really focused on what was right for us. She was also very knowledgeable about the areas we were looking in and patient as we worked through our options. She found us our perfect house and made the closing process as painless as possible."
"Julie was a true professional when we decided to sell our condo in Bothell. She came very highly recommended from a friend of ours so we reached out to Julie and after our initial conversation, Julie and her team put together a sales plan that was executed very quickly. Julie has communication skills that are off the charts and kept us involved in every step of the process. Julie has an in-depth knowledge of the market and will work with you to optimize the value of your property. I would wholeheartedly refer a friend or colleague to use Julie Taylor if they will be buying or selling real estate in the Puget Sound area."
Steve & Kristi, Buyers
"Julie Taylor is simply the best. Her commitment to her clients is like nothing we have experienced.
After moving our family around from place to place with the Navy, we recently made the decision to stay in the Seattle area. When we first began working with Julie to find a home we didn't feel we had the resources to purchase the house that we had been renting for the last couple of years. After looking at homes with Julie she helped us come to the conclusion that we loved the house and neighborhood we were already in. Julie referred us to an amazing lender and used her brilliant negotiating skills to help us realize our dream of NOT having to move again.
Julie and her team worked hand and hand with us through a somewhat unconventional deal. Julie's vast knowledge of all aspects of real estate together with her ability to teach us as we went through the process made our transaction stress free. We would recommend Julie Taylor's Team to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home."
"I was referred to Julie by a commercial real estate agent who suggested I deal with someone who knows the real estate market and who will provide you with unparalleled service, and I was not disappointed! Right from the get-go and post-transaction, Julie was professional, knowledgeable and catered to all of my special needs in a timely manner with respect to the sale of our property. I would recommend Julie and her team to anyone who is looking for quality representation as they provided first class treatment throughout."
"Julie helped us find the perfect home to start our new family. All our asks were considered in finding our home and she was careful to also include her knowledge of the neighborhoods, our commute times, and good to haves for a growing family with two pups. This is my second time using Julie for home buying. This time was just as awesome as the first!"
Steve & Anna, Buyer
"Julie and her group were great! They were patient when we ended up making a significant change to the area and type of home that we were targeting. They responded promptly to all of our emails/texts/calls and were flexible with our crazy two professional/two little kid family schedule when purchasing our home. We fell in love with a home that was above our price range, but they were able to negotiate with the sellers so that we were able to purchase it and love our new house!"
"Julie was a pleasure to work with. She was always available for questions and showings and found us our dream home just in time to settle in and Celebrate Christmas. Thanks Julie!"
"Having dealt with Julie and her group when I bought my house in 2011, I didn't want to deal with anyone else when I was in the need to sell my house. She is VERY knowledgeable about everything that goes into buying and selling a home! She was with us from beginning to end of the process. Even though I have sold homes before in other locations, she is the best one I have ever dealt with. Her suggestions of what we should do to get the most out of our sales was perfect!!!! If you want top notch service from a realtor who can be considered your advocate, Julie is it!!!!!!"
"Julie Taylor. I simply cannot say enough good things about her. She was our Buyer's Agent when we purchased our home in 2010, and recently helped us list and sell our home. Julie and her team made both experiences painless and somehow enjoyable. Julie is great because she knows her stuff, she negotiates well--getting us our purchased home below asking price, and our listing came in above asking price by several thousand; but in addition to just being an amazing Realtor, Julie has a spunky personality. She will make you laugh and you truly enjoy being around her. She and her team go above and beyond in communication, efficiency, and making you feel important. This human-centered approach is not common in the Real Estate world. If you are purchasing a new home, or listing yours, there really is no better person to have in your corner. I give Julie and her team 5-stars and would recommend them to anyone looking for a dynamite agent!"
"I had a great experience working with Julie and Jessica. I came in with some pretty specific location ideas and they zeroed right in and found an amazing home (and writing this a couple months after moving in, I can say I'm even more happy with how great of a find it was). I went into the process as a first-time buyer and they helped me understand the terms, steps, timelines, etc. For example, I wasn't sure whether I wanted more turn-key or not so we looked at a few options and discussed what was involved with each and it made making a decision on the home I wanted all the more easier. I was recommended to them by a friend and even had another friend using them while I was looking for a house and we all had a great experience. I'll recommend to other friends of mine, as well."
"Julie is the best of the best. This was the first time for me to sell a home and with Julie by my side I didn't need to worry about one single thing. She made the home selling process so easy I couldn't believe it! I tell everyone about her. She not only is one of the best real estate agents I know she also has a heart of gold and works with great integrity. Amazing, simply amazing."
'Julie and her team did a wonderful job on the recent sale of our home in WA. They worked closely with us, recommending certain repairs and up-dates to improve the home and helped us through each step of the selling process. They had the home professionally cleaned and staged the home with furniture for an open house weekend. Our home sold within 4 days and we could not be happier. Thank you Julie and Jessica! We really appreciate all your hard work and the amazing results."
"We recently bought our first condo and couldn't have done it without Julie and her team! Julie came highly recommended and I can definitely see why. I'm extremely happy with every aspect of every step of the process. My wife and I chatted with Julie about what type of property we were interested in and what attributes we valued most. Once that was done, we started touring some of the available properties during the weekends. After the first day of touring Julie honed in on exactly what we were looking for and we were able to narrow our search to a few condo complexes which made the initial daunting list of potential options become a much more concise list (which reduced a lot of stress). In the end, we only had to tour condos for 2 days before we knew which one we wanted and it was the very first place we toured. After finding the condo we wanted Julie worked with us and our mortgage broker to make a competitive offer. Our offer was accepted and we made the offer at the perfect time because shortly after we were told that another potential buyer put in an offer that was slightly higher, Julie worked with the listing agent/sellers to make sure that our offer stood. Along the way there were some interesting unexpected hiccups that Julie took care of and kept us updated along the way. If we didn't have Julie I'm almost certain that we would not have closed on time and probably not gotten the condo. Julie was always available to answer questions, give updates, and impart knowledge. I know if it wasn't for her approach, awesome responsiveness to the tasks during the process, her connections, and her ability to charm/work her magic, then it would have been a much different result. Working with Julie was nothing short of an amazing top notch experience! She is extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk with, and is a complete professional in every sense of the word. I highly recommend using Julie and her team when buying a home, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. Thanks Julie for doing such an amazing over the top job, you made this deal happen and our dreams come true! We are completely in love with our condo, it's exactly what we were looking for and can't thank you enough for your hard work!"
Bill & Sarah, Buyers & Sellers
"My wife and I came to Julie and team by recommendation from a friend who had used them when purchasing his house. They came highly recommended, and we weren't let down. Julie and team were great. Before we got started, her and her associate Jessica came by our house to talk about what kind of place we were interested in buying. After hooking us up with more listings, they were very quick to respond to our inquiries and eager and available to take us out and show us some houses! After we picked a few we wanted to see, they literally asked if we wanted to go the next day! We found a place we liked rather quick, and they made the process of putting in a reasonable offer painless. They gave us good advice throughout negotiation that was much appreciated. They coordinated the inspection, and well as worked with the seller's contractor to fix a few things that were discovered during inspection, so we didn't have to. As we waited for the closing date, they made a point to check in with us several times a week to give us any new information that they learned, so there were no closing day surprises.
After our purchase was complete, it was time to sell my condo. We had moved out and it was empty and ready to go. They recommended some painting for us to do, but other than that, Jessica had it cleaned and staged with furniture at absolutely no cost to us! That was amazing. They wasted no time in getting the word out and getting eyes on the property, and they recommended we put the place up for sale for a healthy amount. When offers started coming in, they gave us good advice on how to proceed; if we should counter-offer, what values to use, etc. Again, they're making the process simple.
I am very pleased to have worked with Julie (and Jessica!) and team. They were fun, optimistic and energetic, and they made the process easy. I would definitely recommend them for buying and selling property."
"Julie came to my attention through a referral from a work colleague at a time when my wife and I were "vetting" agents for our next home purchase. If you solely "Googled" Julie you would find enough positive reviews to at least reach out to her. This I did (via e-mail) and Julie was very quick to respond.
What stood out for me with Julie was not only her timely response but her answers to my questions were well informed (not a canned response). Additionally Julie (and her associate, Jessica) were willing to work their schedule to that of my wife and me for an initial meet and greet. At the meeting they both came well prepared with a portfolio of properties they researched just solely on very small tidbits I provided via e-mail. Julie's knowledge of the Pacific Northwest to me at least seemed very high.
Julie was also masterful at keeping me calm and most particularly during the financing process. I have the personality flaw of going from 0 to 60 in moments if I feel like I'm being jerked around and Julie never missed a beat in bringing to my attention the pro's and con's of real estate and making sure I was as informed as possible with whatever decision my wife and I made.
Lastly, Julie is well connected both in the financing world and the home builder world. Julie's connections clearly have full respect for her because they also were quick to respond to inquiries and inundated me with information.
If I find myself in the real estate market again Julie is going to be at the top of my list."
"Jessica, Julie and the entire Taylor Brokers Group team were with me every step of the way as I navigated my way through the often overwhelming undertaking of a first time home purchase. Their expert negotiating skills were crucial in impressively maneuvering through sometimes difficult compromises with out-of-state Sellers. Any question I had, no matter how trivial, was answered expertly and in a timely manner no matter the time of day or night! I would highly recommend Jessica, Julie and the entire Taylor Brokers Group team to anyone looking to purchase a home. From first offer to closing in less than 6 weeks, I always knew I was in very capable hands. They are the best!"
"Wonderful experience from start to finish. Excellent communication with Julie and her associates. Quickly brought the home to market and delivered on everything promised no surprises straightforward sale. We highly recommend Julie Taylor and the TBG group."
"We couldn't have asked for a better agent than Julie during a stressful period of having to sell our home and move out of state in 30 days. Julie's professionalism, experience, knowledge in the real estate market, and excellent negotiating skills were above and beyond our expectations. Not only did we get an OVER asking price offer within days, Julie was able to negotiate a lease back for the remaining days that month. To top this all off, Julie introduced us to a fantastic agent out of state! We would highly recommend Julie. She exceeded our expectations and we couldn't thank her enough for all she did to make this time less stressful for our family. Thank you Julie!!!"
"Julie Taylor and her team were resourceful, dedicated, and professional throughout the selling process. Every step of the way starting with setting the right price, to preparing for showing and staging, and managing the open house and the offers review, she was thoughtful, flexible and accurate taking the stress out of the selling process. Her proven negotiation skills got us the best offer terms we hoped for including the highest sales price per sq/ft in the area and a lease back option while we're shopping for our next home. We're very satisfied with our experience, we asked her to help us with buying our next home and we'd certainly work with her on any real estate transaction in the future."
Miro & Marilee, Sellers & Buyers
"Julie is absolutely the best real estate agent. She sold our house for us and when we were ready helped us purchase a new home. Her customer service is above and beyond. She is always available for questions and, because of her outstanding knowledge of the market, is able to offer expert advice that you can trust. She negotiated the purchase of a home we never dreamed we would be able to buy."
Rich, Seller & Buyer
"Julie Taylor is flat out the best real estate person I have ever had the pleasure to work with in my 66 years of life. She sold our home quickly and over our asking price! Her virtual staging of the home was fantastic and brought out all of the outstanding attributes of the home. Julie is very knowledgeable in all facets of the market and communicates so well at any time of day. If you want to buy or sell, Julie is the person for sure."
"Working with Julie Taylor was nothing short of amazing! She is professional, asks the right questions so that she knows exactly what it is you are looking for, is always one step ahead of the transaction, keeps you in the loop throughout each step of the process, is your advocate, and even gave some design tips after the purchase was made! (Not to mention she is funny!)
I would and have referred others to use Julie for their home purchase, she is simply fantastic!"
Stacy, Buyer & Seller
"Julie has been absolutely amazing when it comes to selling our house and purchasing our dream home. The whole process was so much easier due to the fact we had Julie and she was so knowledgeable when it came to current market conditions. We are so happy we used Julie as our realtor I would never use any other realtor."
"I was recommended by my lender to consider Julie due to her negotiation skills, knowledge and professional attitude and it has been true. On top of that, Julie is very patient with me in explaining the steps in the process. I feel very at ease knowing she was on top of everything. Julie also helped me on things outside the scope of the purchase contract, such as coordinating with the sellers to buy furniture and prepare paperwork for lease-back. She did all that with a sense of humor and encouragement. Thank you Julie, it has been a great experience buying my first house and I would definitely recommend her to my family and friend from now on!"
Dan & Lauren, Buyer
"Julie has been working with us for over a year in search of our forever-home. We had many asks to fulfill and she worked tirelessly to find us homes that passed those requirements. Several towards the end made the cut and she helped us to swiftly and strategically make our offers, but these few houses ended up with bids higher than we were willing to go. Shortly after, she found us something perfect, with all that we had asked for and at a price she negotiated expertly in order to get us the winning bid in such a vulture-like buyers market! We couldn't be happier with the entire final buying process, Julie navigated some hairy ups and downs for us like they were no big deal, making us feel sure and secure about all the details of a busy closing contract negotiation. Throughout our time together, Julie listened to us exactly about what we were looking for, what were our priorities and what details would just make a property sing for us. She was a lovely person to spend so many weekends hunting for homes and felt like working with a family member who really wanted the best of everything for us. Her attention to detail even to the last involvement on our new house was so very thoughtful and genuine as well as proving her mastery of the art of Real Estate paperwork, strategy and negotiation details, she is a chess master extraordinaire, but in the most open and explanatory way for us (we liked to know every in and out of the whole thing). We plan to make more real estate investments in both the near and far future, as well as likely having family move out this way in several years and will most definitely without a doubt be using Julie for each and every one of these searches and transactions. She even gets a Christmas card from us from now on because she is so appreciated in this family. Thank you Julie and your entire team for dealing with and supporting solving a major life choice for two intense A-type personalities, we wish we were already working with you on the next one, but are busy falling in love with this house first!"
"Julie was GREAT! She kept in touch with us even when our financing caused for months of delays. She worked hard to find us our perfect home. She made the whole process feel easy and worry free. We couldn't be happier with the service she provided us. We will definitely be recommending her to anyone we know that is looking to buy/sell a home."
"As a first time home buyer, I went into the home buying process not knowing what to look for in a home, but Julie helped me find the perfect home. From the moment we met to look at the first home I'd selected, she made me feel comfortable and as if I'd know/trusted her for years. Throughout the process Julie's experience with first time home buyers showed, as she walked me very thoroughly through all the steps, explaining things in great detail so I could fully understand what was/would happen. Even though the entire process was lengthy Julie kept in contact even when there was nothing to report, which gave me comfort knowing that she was still looking out for me and my needs. Julie truly, made buying my first home an enjoyable experience and I will definitely be recommending her to my friends."
"I was a first time buyer and Julie made the process painless. She allowed me to set our communication schedule, choose how aggressive we were in viewing and pretty much tailored the experience to my needs. She helped me manage my expectations and was always available when needed (even offered to look at a house on 4th of July). Her knowledge is expansive and experience evident. I'd recommend her to anyone, especially a first time buyer."
Rachel, Seller & Buyer
"I cannot say this enough: Julie Taylor is an excellent agent. She guided us through this process with her expert knowledge of real estate and home buying. Her customer service skills are impeccable. I always felt that she was acting as our advocate, and I would recommend her whole-heartedly."
"I could rate her 11 if there was such a grade. Julie was very patient with my constantly changing preferences switching from houses in the woods to town homes in more rural area back and forth, I would have ran away from such a client if I were her. She kept everything under control all the time, bugging the HOA, lenders, the escrow company when something wasn't done in a timely manner or not up to the highest standard. I hope in several years when it's time for me to look at a bigger house she is still working in this area."
"We are first-time home buyers & could not have had a better experience. Julie was warm, welcoming, informative, honest, & above all, offered consistent support during the entire process."
Jon & Kris, Sellers & Buyers
"We were kept up to date with everything, so communication was key. We could not have had a better agent in the selling our home."
"The family loved working with Julie. Julie got to know my family and learned our needs and helped to guide us to the right house. Julie made the experience fun."
Betsy, Seller & Buyer
"Our experience with Julie Taylor couldn't have been better. Julie is experienced, knowledgeable and delightful. She made an ordinarily stressful experience fun, easy, and enjoyable. With Julie's help, we were able to purchase a house in a 10 offer situation, even though we weren't the best offer. Can't beat that!"
"Julie was always there for us with a smile was completely receptive to helping us find what we were looking for, not just trying to make a sale. She asked very intelligent questions to identify the important features we wanted and which made me feel that she was truly interested in our concerns. Julie is the best! Due to my personal situation I had to stop looking for a home after we had been looking for several weeks but Julie continued to stay in touch and when I was able to resume our search she was there meeting with us at every opportunity, working with our schedule and made the entire experience a joy. I have already recommended her to friends and acquaintances who are currently in the market for a new home."
Paul, Seller & Buyer
"Julie is a true professional. She is accessible, responsive and very thorough. Her excellent sales and negotiation skills secured the best possible price for the sale of our home."
"Julie did an amazing job helping us purchase a home in Bellevue. She always communicated with us throughout the process, she has great attention to detail, strong negotiation skills, and a real enthusiasm for the business. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home."
"Julie was amazing to work with in the purchase of our new home. She was very helpful in answering our questions (and we had so many), and working hard to give us the best possible deal for the home we wanted. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone purchasing or selling their home."
Stacey, Seller & Buyer
"Julie was absolutely amazing to work with. I was able to buy a house I never thought was possible due to the price, but Julie was so great at negotiating with the seller and I scored an amazing deal. Julie is flexible and always there when you have questions. I would highly recommend using her for your next real estate purchase or sale."
"Julie was extremely helpful! Working with us (while we were in Louisiana) on buying and finding, she went above and beyond. Even When we ran into some snags with our lender, she helped us - this was not part of her job - but she was extremely helpful! She even blessed us with some unexpected house warming gifts."
"Julie is the agent everyone hopes to find. While living in Louisiana, Julie helped us find the perfect home for our needs. On a quick week-long jaunt up to Washington, Julie already had homes picked out. She spent that week showing us around the various homes, even a mini tour of the area, that met our "requirements". However, she also had a few others that wouldn't have made our list. And, it was one of her extra ones that we fell in love with! It was perfect! She really did her homework...
What really impressed me with Julie is that she helped us through the whole process-- especially when our lender and the VA started to give us some problems. She helped where she didn't have to help.
Julie was a true blessing your our family! I high recommend her to anyone that wants quality service, great attitude, and a home that they'll love."
"Julie was rarely unavailable for a phone call. If we had to leave a message she would get back to us in just a few hours. She checked in occasionally to make sure we were progressing and didn't have any questions, but not so often as to be suffocating. I know she had other clients (we called her once during another closing,) but she made it seem like we were her only customers - she always had time for us. Both of us are extremely happy with her, and have already recommended her to everyone we know. I can't say enough positive things."
"Julie has been extremely helpful and we are very happy to have her as our agent. Julie is very knowledgeable with what she's doing and always on top of everything. We will definitely keep using her as our agent in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone."
"We are first time home buyers so we didn't know about the long haul process we were in for. Julie was a big help...she guided us step by step and told us exactly what to expect. She gave us all the details when asked and responds to emails in a timely manner. She gave us updates every week on our home even though for 3/4 of the time she came back with no update. She does a great job with her clients. I would work with her again."
Kris, Seller & Buyer
"When my husband and I decided to start looking for a retirement home we knew we wanted to move to Eastern Washington. We thought possibly Moses Lake so Julie had 4 or 5 homes for us to look at. When there was nothing that caught our eye Julie had a house in Ellensburg she wanted us to see. After going through the home and about to leave we noticed the home next door was up for sale. Julie got on the phone immediately and was able to get the ok from the listing agent for us to go in and look around. We fell in love with the house. Julie got the ball rolling and helped us through the bidding process. She was professional and was able to help us get the bid we had wanted. She even one top with the title and escorw company. Every thing went through so smoothly. It is now time for us to retire and we are using Julie again to sell our current home."
