Buying Your First Home

There is something extra special about buying your first home, but all too often I see first-time buyers without the critical information they need to make a successful purchase.  That’s where I come in.  I can help you with every step of the way, from finding the right lender and special first-time-buyer programs which can save you money, to walking you through a home’s pros and cons.  How much “fix” can you handle in a fixer-upper? What will the utility bills be like? How do you work with an HOA? You’ll have my experience to guide you as we draft a competitive offer and I’ll be your staunch advocate during negotiations, as well as walking you through the closing process and happily handing you the keys to your new home.  I look forward to working for you throughout this process. 

What First-Time Homebuyers Are Saying About Julie

“Our agent, Julie, did an outstanding job! She was available to us whenever we needed or wanted to contact her. She was very quick to set up viewings for us; both sites that we were interested in and some that she found for us. Julie was also key in helping us communicate with the financing bank; this was especially helpful because we weren't from the area.”

“You will not find an agent that will work harder for you. Nothing is out of the question when it comes to what Julie will do to help you sell your house (like shoveling our walk after a snowstorm so she could do a showing) or to buy a home. She is very professional, always responsive and never pushy. I have very high expectations for business partners and Julie never disappointed us.”

“Julie was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the purchase of our home. She also helped us sell our existing home in Menomonee Falls. She worked very hard between us and the buyers to reach an amicable price and conditions. She went way beyond the average help of a realtor. We would highly recommend Julie for any of your needs in real estate, she never gave up on our negotiations.”

“She was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs and concerns throughout the entire process. After a previously bad experience with a different realtor it was nice to have Julie help us buy our second home. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a new home or to sell their current one.”

“Julie represented us in the sale of two homes and purchase of another. The three transactions required coordination and good communication skills, expertise on both sides of the home sales transaction, familiarity with multiple areas, and a whole bunch of patience. We are very happy with the services Julie provided and feel she went above and beyond our expectations on several occasions. Julie is detail-oriented and knows her business very well. She is a true professional. We will not hesitate to work with her again.”
