Our sale involved real estate and a business. It was a complicated sale involving real estate, equipment, goodwill and stock. Julie was knowledgeable, professional and ultra-timely with responses. Her knowledge and experience are invaluable. We then dealt with Julie for a few purchases with a 1031 exchange. Again, her connections and knowledge were most appreciated. She is a class act and we would highly recommend Julie.
We have used Julie and her office for several real estate transactions, including the recent sale of our house, all have been smooth and professionally executed. Julie and her team were great about taking the time to understand our priorities during the negotiation period. While there are plenty of real estate agent options in the area, few have the combination of business acumen and integrity that Julie’s team provides. Would definitely recommend using her for buying & selling real estate.
Julie has great knowledge of the local real estate market. She and her staff are always responsive. They return phone calls timely. She is good to work with and makes the process easy. Julie is from the area and that is helpful in providing insight into local real estate conditions. For example, she was very accurate in assessing the market value of our home. The home sold within 2 weeks of the listing date and the selling price was good. The photographer she used took very good photos of the home and that was important in the marketing.
Since moving to Buena Vista, CO in August, 2020, Julie has helped us purchase two additional times, so we've done three transactions with her since meeting her. My wife and I both agree that she has served us with great skill and local knowledge, so I can only give her five stars and highly recommend her.
We were looking for land by ourselves for a while in CO trying to narrow down where exactly we wanted to end up. I first spoke with Julie once we landed on Buena Vista and she helped make the process easier. She knew of a lot that wasn't listed yet that allowed us to get a better lot for a better deal than what we would've found otherwise. We are happy with the experience overall.
Julie helped me through an extremely stressful personal period in my life, which included selling my home of 20+ years and finding a new place where I could start over. She was knowledgeable, professional, super responsive, and walked me through this first time seller/buyer experience with expertise but and, more importantly, compassion and kindness. She looked out for my best interests on all levels! I can't recommend Julie enough and will contact her first if I am ever in need of a real estate agent in the future.
I was trying to buy the perfect property and home in Twin Lakes for years. I was usually too late or had other issues which caused the deals to fall through. Someone forwarded Julie's contact details to me in 2017. She found a number of properties, did the leg work, vetted the details and provided prompt feedback. She was always fair and honest when communicating her findings even if it meant she would not sell the house. From my experience Julie is not just trying to flip houses, she is genuinely concerned with pairing the best property with each client.
After considering four properties through Julie, she found and promptly secured, in my opinion, the best possible property in the area. It had everything that I wanted and more. She negotiated the details with the seller and we closed, from beginning to end, in one month. I had the keys and title to the house in a month and a week. UNREAL!!!
I really cannot say anything negative about Julie. She is absolutely amazing.
- Professional - she proactively handled all snags and complications
- Prompt - never delayed getting back to me to answer my questions
- Honest - she never sugarcoated anything, always gave me her honest feelings and all the possible options
- Hard working - worked tirelessly early in the mornings and into the evenings doing the necessary legwork
- Knows everyone - she has an extensive web of contacts that handled everything we needed
- Knows the Chaffee and Lake counties very well
- Polite and Measured - even when I was being over dramatic
If you are looking for a realtor you cannot go wrong with Julie Kersting. I giver her 11 our of 10.
Buying a house can certainly be stressful, but not with Julie on your side. She brings local knowledge, vendor connections, everything needed to make the sale you want. She is very professional and will make sure you get the property for the right fair price. She was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her.
Julie is a true professional with deep expertise in the local real estate market. She's a hard worker who did her best to help us successfully find a home. I highly recommend working with her!
Julie is a truly amazing relator who treated us like family. She helped us through every step of the home buying process with patience. Julie will go out of her way to ensure you get the best service possible.
I worked with Julie to locate and purchase a lot in downtown Buena Vista. From the first moment we connected to closing on the property Julie was helpful, supportive of my needs and quick to get back to me with my emails and calls. In todays World I often find that is generally not always the case with many people you are working with to get something done.
We didn't even know where to begin, Julie helped us with paperwork, communicating with the seller, suggestion lenders, inspectors, etc, and asked the questions we didn't know to ask!
Julie always responded to us in a timely, professional manner. She moved the transaction forward to the satisfaction of both buyer and seller to the closing date. We listed the house in February and closed 8weeks later. Her friendly and integrous manner put both buyer and seller at ease. We would highly recommend her.
We enlisted Julie Kersting’s help after several phone conversations confident that she was a seasoned, full time real estate agent. As out of state buyers we were more than pleased to find Julie to be a true professional who went beyond the expected. She didn’t blink at showing us close to 30 homes [some more than once] during our 3 day stay in Buena Vista. And she closed our deal after we left with an ease we didn’t expect from any real estate transaction. She attended to all the inspections and other details of a sale in our absence. We’re happily back home in Colorado thanks to the help and expertise of a great agent. Thanks Julie!
Julie works tirelessly to make sure that she does her very best for her clients. She also is very friendly and nice to work with. I would definitely recommend. She is a true professional and is a couple notches above what you would expect in such a small town real estate market.
