My Client Reviews
Julie Ford is an exceptional agent in every aspect of her job. We had not sold a home in 25 years, and she patiently and thoroughly guided us through each step, from pricing to closing. She is very perceptive, anticipating one's needs before you realize you have them, and her communication and interpersonal skills are outstanding. Julie goes above and beyond to ensure a positive experience for all involved, and her consistently pleasant , calm demeanor is very helpful in such an important (and potentially intense) process.
Julie is just simply the very best all around real estate agent that you can find. She is extremely friendly, knowledgeable, honest, and trust worthy. And she has an amazing amount of patience to answer any and all questions you ask her. She genuinely loves her job and it shows by the way she loves people. It was such a joy to work with her in the sale and purchase of our homes. I wouldn't trust anyone else!
Our family and I have had the opportunity to work with Julie twice over the past few years. Once to sell and recently to purchase our forever home. Julie excels in all of the skills necessary, such as local knowledge, trustworthiness, and responsiveness (and most importantly patience), to provide top level service to her clients. We would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Due to my wife's illness, the process took several months. When Julie first met with me, the home was nowhere near ready for sale. Her recommendations and suggestions were extremely helpful, and on point, and led to the process of preparing the property for sale being easier than I was expecting. She did an excellent job of communicating as each step of the process was done, and as a result, there were no surprises throughout the entire process through to closing. Once the house was listed, even with the uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus outbreak, there was a steady stream of people looking at the property, and Julie did an excellent job of informing me of each visitor, and the impressions they had when touring the property. Julie had done an excellent job of researching the area, and the property was listed at a good price, both to us, and the ultimate buyer. More than one offer was made, and one accepted, and the property put under contract less than three weeks from the time it was listed, which frankly surprised me, considering most everything had been shut down by that time due to the Coronavirus. The process between the acceptance of the offer and closing went extremely smoothly, and due to Julie's professionalism, attention to detail, and effective regular communication between me, and the buyer, there were absolutely no surprises all the way through to closing. I would have absolutely no reservation in recommending Julie to anyone looking to buy or sell property my experience was excellent.
As a first-time home buyer, I appreciated Julie's ability to be patient with me as I sorted through many options. Although I don't readily accept assistance, Julie was able to make me feel comfortable throughout the process. She responded quickly, professionally, and thoroughly to all my requests. I highly recommend Julie as a realtor.
Julie Ford was great to work with. We were relocating from Metro DC for work and looking for a new home with a great school district. She was very knowledgeable in the area and provided good insights. She was very responsive on the houses we wanted to see and recommended others which she thought had good potential in the area we were looking in. We looked at about 14 houses in 4 days, and looked again at our top 2 houses the following week. As we mentioned to her that we wanted to concentrate in the Farragut area of West Knoxville, she provided good leads on all-Farragut schools. She did not oversell herself, did not over follow up, did not press us to make quick decisions, and did not show us houses that we did not want to see (lesser # of bedrooms or in another school district) -- things that we saw in other real estate agents in DC and even in Knoxville. In the end, we found our dream home through her. Comfortably located, very good area in West Knoxville, all-Farragut schools with a sense of safety. We fully recommend her services!
I have had a great relationship working with Julie Ford. I was in need of a realtor in a pinch and she came highly recommended. She came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction I had with her after that was the same. She gave me thoughtful advice and has become a trusted adviser on all of my real estate needs. I look forward to working with her again!
Julie was very helpful. Being a first time home buyer I did not have all the knowledge I needed. Julie help guide me through the process and gave me tips for what I needed and what Ishould look for. She helped me find the house I really wanted. Julie was great at making sure agreements were met and that everything was on time.
Julie is extremely knowledgeable and professional in her relationships with her clients ~ The way she combines those skills with her friendly and honest nature make her a pleasure to work with. I found her to be responsive to my needs and extremely helpful in finding me the perfect home. I would recommend Julie Highly to anyone in need of a realtor in the Knoxville in Farragut area .
My wife and I used Julie as a realtor and was not disappointed. She is very responsive when we had questions, if she didn't have an answer she for one from someone who had the answers we needed, she very attentive to our needs as first time home buyers and stuck with our budget very well. We settle on our first house in the country and she was awesome in negotiating with the seller. 10 out of 10 i would recommend her to anyone in the market.
Julie was very helpful with helping us buy our new home. She was very understanding of our budget and was not pushy trying to get us to go over it. The house we ended up getting was actually under budget and had everything we wanted! The biggest problem we had was with our lender and Julie was right ontop of it of staying on top of them when it came to us closing. Also Julie was very flexable when we were going to look at houses and she also would go look at more than planned with us the same night. I wouldn't have chose any other realtor!!!
