She listened and sent us listings that were below our highest price range, which I appreciated. Other agents seemed to push us into higher prices. We feel we paid a good price and found a great agent!
She is simply the best at what she does and knows how to make things happen -- so thorough, so on the ball, so effective. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again if the need arose."
You will forever be our agent. We think you're an awesome person and an industry badass! I recommend you to everyone I know. Thanks again!
.. Please consider working with Julie Nelson. We cannot say enough good things about Julie. When we decided to begin the process of selling our home, we interviewed other agents and never felt quite comfortable with them. Julie instantly impressed us with her knowledge and appreciation of Central Austin, her straight forward approach to the selling process, and her endless patience in answering our numerous questions. In addition, she is intelligent, friendly, extremely competent and detail-oriented. In short, just the kind of person you want on your side during the potentially stressful time of buying or selling a home. Please pass on her name to one and all!
She is detail-oriented, efficient, and responsive. She's also a very good negotiator and finds creative ways to get things done - both quickly and thoroughly. I recommend her wholeheartedly!!
Our relocation from out of state was made possible by Julie’s constant availability to video chat homes in Austin’s fast moving market. Her knowledge of neighborhoods and developers was extensive and helped us find the best home for us. We couldn’t be more pleased.
This was not only our first time buying a home, but also we were relocating from out of state to give it an extra level of difficulty. So, needless to say we honestly didn’t know where to start. Years of watching HGTV had simultaneously overeducated us on shiplap while under educating us on any of the actual planning or logistics of purchasing a home. Our first impression of Julie was that she was a respected professional. After researching online, we reached out to Julie who called us back the very same day with preliminary advice and next steps. After a series of discovery questions, she uploaded us to her personal MLS in order to consistently feed us available home options that fit our criteria. This was very helpful as we were out of state and aggregating a list of homes to visit on our trip out to house search in Austin. On our first trip to Austin, Julie made it very convenient by meeting us in our hotel lobby. After skipping handshakes and being greeted with a hug, I was immediately confident that we made the right choice in our agent. She not only had incredible style, but also her warm disposition felt like southern hospitality personified. We sat at our table, ordered a few drinks and she unfolded a library of information in a Welcome to Austin package that she created specifically for us. By the end of the first meeting, we were knee deep in an unfolded, physical map that Julie was marking up with circles, dots and smiley faces. It was clear that we were truly embarking on an adventure. The most memorable attribute that Julie possessed as an agent was her ability to allow my husband and I form our own opinion in a home before she imposed any of her expertise. She was imaginative with us as we came across a great kitchen/bar and dreamed of hosting parties while being sure to point out that there were no gutters on the house and we would need to consider water drainage issues. On another occasion, she used her knowledge as a master gardener to help us dream of flowers and shrubs alongside a fence line while making us aware that the creek in the back property flooded a few years back and we risked being in a flood zone. Julie is the perfect balance of a dreamer and a realist, which is what we needed in one of the most exciting but important decisions of our life. Finally, after finding the house we wanted to put an offer on, Julie and her extended team took us across the finish line in regard to negotiations, loans, and final logistics. We truly felt like we were surrounded by the best of the best and couldn’t have asked for a better home buying experience. So if you are anything like us and looking for an agent that can jump in a rowboat with you in the middle of an ocean, Julie Nelson is the best captain in Austin.
