In all honesty, at first my husband and I were debating whether we should try to just sell our condo ourselves to save the realtor fees...but thankfully we met with Julia to talk, and from the get-go we were very impressed with the skillset she brought to the table.
She has an excellent eye for interior design and was able to immediately give us suggestions on what would have the biggest impact for improving the aesthetics of our unit. Julia spent a lot of time with us to explain the current market climate, the previous sales in the building and as there were no less than 7(!) other units for sale in the building at the time (and some had been listed for 4 months), she had a clear plan of how to make ours stand out from the competition. Julia was always available to answer our many questions and provide guidance to help us achieve our vision of presenting the best possible version of our place. She went above and beyond to make it all happen.
The strategies she employed resulted in us getting 3 offers after 1 weekend of viewings and accepting a great offer within 2 weeks of listing; it was truly amazing. She worked until all hours of the offer closing day to negotiate and ensure the offers were clean (and even helped a couple of the junior realtors fix problematic wording for their buyers, while she was at it!). There is no way we could have navigated so successfully through that process on our own.
The end result of her staging and marketing strategies was a super fast sale, above market, beating out similar-sized units on higher floors. Needless to say, she has the skills wrought by years of experience and is everything you would hope for from a realtor, but she is also a truly wonderful person to work with. Cannot recommend her enough, thank you!
