she is also respectful of our comfort level and never pushed us. 

During our first meeting, Julie showed us a very professional PowerPoint slide about herself and her company, why she is doing different in the business. We were immediately impressed with her calm and friendly personality. Julie represented us while buying a condo in Arlington MA. In the very competitive market, multiple offers are normal. On our first offer, we were one of the 21 bidders. We were terrified of the situation, didn’t’ know how to deal with the fast-moving, low inventory market. Julie devised plans to help us come up with a strong offer in our second bid, while we were not even the top priced offer. It was our first time to deal with condo. We were overwhelmed with complicated condo document, not mentioning this newly converted condo. Julie went to every details of the document and worked with attorney to get things straighten out for our best benefit. Julie was available to us day and night through the entire process. She guided us through every step, she is also respectful of our comfort level and never pushed us. She kept on us about all of our deadlines, documents to be signed. She is very tech savvy. Her use of technology including email, text message, marketing websites, Dotloop, Showtime was a real advantage in keeping the sale process on a timely track. Thanks to Julie that we had a very smooth buying experience. I would definitely recommend Julie to friends and family.

Julie helped my husband and me through the process of buying our first house in Concord last year. She was patient and honest, allowing us to learn and make our own observations but also ready to offer her own opinions when needed and wanted. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about all the  towns we were interested in, and she helped us negotiate several offers in this tough, competitive market. She also made herself available to look at every house that interested us together. Overall, she has such a nice mix of being friendly and approachable but also tough when it’s needed. Finally, she has continued to make herself available to us in the year since our purchase with recommendations for local work-people. Julie is a great agent and partner for anyone searching for a home!

Julie was very attentive, reliable, trustworthy and made the entire home buying process fun and enjoyable with no worries and I would strongly recommend Julie to anyone

 

As first time home buyers, the prospect of buying a house was exciting and terrifying at the same time. We enlisted the help of Julie to walk us through the process and find us the house of our dreams. Her knowledge of the local market and the overall house buying process put our worries at ease.  She helped us compile a list of our needs and show us potential houses quickly. Her flexible schedule allowed us to look at numerous houses almost every weekend. When we did find the house of our dreams, she was there with every question we had no matter how silly it might have been. We were able to close on our house in 30 days. Julie was very attentive, reliable, trustworthy and made the entire home buying process fun and enjoyable with no worries and I would strongly recommend Julie to anyone. Thank you Julie for helping us!

Julie would keep us up to speed with all the details and made what  could have been a stressful time much easier.

 

This was our first and last time selling a house. It is a sellers market but it is still stressful selling a home. Julie walked us through every step. Her follow up up was great ! Julie would keep us up to speed with all the details and made what could have been a stressful time much easier. We  would highly recommend Julie for your real estate needs whether buying or selling.

….and after talking with us, asked if we would come back and look at a different house that she thought would be what we were looking for. She was exactly right

Julie helped us find exactly what we were looking for, after only meeting us once. She showed us two homes that we had requested to see, and after talking with us, asked if we would come back and look at a different house that she thought would be what we were looking for. She was exactly right. The  house wasn’t even on the market anymore, but she reached out to the owners, set up a showing and helped us navigate a complex home purchase. She was willing to show us the house several times so our families could all see it. She really helped us make this process as easy as possible. We are grateful to Julie for finding us a great home and ensuring the process went smoothly. We highly recommend her services!

…there were a lot of complications involved due to my personal situation. Julie and her expert team were there every step of my way to provide me with several options which eventually helped me successfully complete the closing.

I am a first time home buyer and the anxiety to close a deal successfully was over the roof. I am so glad I met with Julie and worked with her on finding my dream home. She was meticulous and introduced me to the various steps involved in the home buying process and gave me clear explanation on  how to go about it. That really helped me calm down and proceed with confidence. Though I was a motivated buyer, there were a lot of complications involved due to my personal situation. Julie and her expert team were there every step of my way to provide me with several options which eventually helped me successfully complete the closing. In a span of 4 months, I was able to move into my dream house from an apartment that I was renting. All that would not have been possible, without the transparent and trustworthy attitude exhibited by Julie at every instance. I would totally recommend Julie and I am sure she would make your home buying process an enjoyable one

…she also persevered and was successful in having our flood insurance abated.

I don’t know where to begin to describe the incredible experience my husband and I had with our real estate agent, Julie Marion. We were referred to Julie by a friend over two years before we were ready to list our home for sale. She began by coming into our home to make suggestions for  improvements that would increase the price point, and she followed up several times in person to see the progress we were making. During that time, she also persevered and was successful in having our flood insurance abated. When it was time to list our home, she worked tirelessly to set the price, do the marketing and legwork, and prepare for our very successful open house (complete with balloons and cookies!) She took time to talk to each and every one of our potential buyers, making them feel welcome and pointing out positive features of our home. We accepted an offer well over asking price and owe it all to Julie! She walked us through all of the paperwork and was with us every step of the way. She answered every question, text and email, always with a smile and a positive attitude. Julie Marion is warm, caring, hard-working and an accomplished, consummate professional. We highly recommend her without hesitation to anyone who is thinking of selling or purchasing a home!

Julie made the stress of selling my home much more tolerable!

I was provided great service in the sale of my condo! I received great advice and HRE spruced up the house so it showed even better. I was kept informed about home viewings and HRE represented my interests very well. Once an offer was received, I was guided through the negotiation and inspection process, right through to the closing. Julie made the stress of selling my home much more tolerable!

When others told us multiple times that the deal was dead, Julie kept fighting for us and found ways to keep it alive until the home was ours.

Julie helped us sell our previous home and buy our new home! Despite the sellers going through a divorce, numerous home improvements needed, failed home inspection, failed Title V septic, a tough mortgage process, and slow attorneys…Julie helped us achieve the goal of obtaining our dream home. When others told us multiple times that the deal was dead, Julie kept fighting for us and found ways to keep it alive until the home was ours. Thanks, Julie!

Julie’s knowledge of ALL aspects of real estate transaction AND town government that allowed us to close this deal.

Julie, made a very difficult transaction possible. I found a home on Zillow that I thought was on the market. It was, but only technically. The seller and the seller’s agent had multiple outstanding permit issues with the town and was unable or unwilling to resolve them. Not surprisingly, the  lawyers were of no help whatsoever. It was only Julie’s knowledge of ALL aspects of real estate transaction AND town government that allowed us to close this deal. In our country’s post real estate debacle environment, I am convinced that this type of transaction will become more and more common and it will be essential that a buyer have a knowledgeable person who is motivated to close the transaction like Julie on their team.

Hottel Real Estate

Julie proved to be the consummate real estate professional: knowledgeable, organized, confident, determined, positive, extremely creative and bright, and highly ethical.

It is my privilege to recommend Julie Marion. When relocating to the Northwest region of Boston, I was attracted to Julie’s stand-out website: www.hottelrealestate.com. Of particular benefit to us was her section that provided community information for each of the towns we happened to be  interested in. I called Julie with a few questions and before I knew it, she was driving us from town to town, describing the various features and characteristics of each community, listening closely as we described our ideal home and offering her advice and recommendations. While searching for property over the next couple months, Julie proved to be the consummate real estate professional: knowledgeable, organized, confident, determined, positive, extremely creative and bright, and highly ethical. Maintaining her professionalism at all times, best yet, Julie is also gracious and genuine — an altogether great person. It was during the actual buying process, however, that Julie’s more hidden talents were revealed — expertise invaluable to our unusual find. On top of her substantial real estate experience, Julie also has a degree in Historic Preservation, a wonderful background for this area of the country where antique homes are treasured and still quite common. What’s more, Julie happens to be a former Town Planner. So in addition to what everyone hopes for: a smooth, uneventful purchase and sale, Julie can also help you with just about any outside-the-box issue that may come your way, understanding zoning and development issues as few real estate agents can; never hesitating to offer advice for dealing with city codes and regulations; and, when helpful, even speaking to Town Hall personnel on your behalf. At all times I knew I had someone on my side, as Julie again and again proved she was with us each step of the way through an exciting and extremely successful transaction. Thank you, Julie, for taking such care with my family’s future — I am ever grateful!

It was obvious Julie takes great pride in her work and that she takes her job very seriously. As professional as Julie is we had a lot of fun working with her. She’s very easy to get along with.

Julie was the perfect agent for us as a first time home buyer. We were really thankful that we had someone as trustworthy and knowledgeable as Julie to guide us through the entire process.

The first time my wife and I spoke with Julie she understood our needs and was able to quickly  put together listings to show us. She provided us a packet of information that illustrated the key steps of the home buying process. This made it easy to plan such things as when to contact the bank, the home inspector, etc.

As our needs changed Julie was so flexible and many times would make herself available at odd hours as I work an imperfect schedule. It was obvious Julie takes great pride in her work and that she takes her job very seriously. As professional as Julie is we had a lot of fun working with her. She’s very easy to get along with.

Many times, during the process Julie went above and beyond to help us. When we finally found the home we decided on, Julie went to the town hall for us to pull permits and collect other important information. Not only was this a huge time-saver for me but it also wasn’t something I would have thought of doing myself.

My wife and I have already agreed that we will call Julie when we are ready to buy our next home.

comparables are virtually non-existent. Never-the-less, they arrived at a competitive price that resulted in an “as-is” contract, within two months

Julie Marion and her Associate, Peter Olson, provided outstanding service. Our property was unique, dating from 1740, and comparables are virtually non-existent. Never-the-less, they arrived at a competitive price that resulted in an “as-is” contract, within two months, for about 92 percent of the  asking price. Peter Olson was present during every showing and gave us immediate feedback on the impressions of the prospective buyers. He provided sound advice during the negotiation process for us and his discussions with the ultimate buyer were instrumental in effecting the sale. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie Marion and Peter Olson to anyone.

The price was set on the homes value and was not inflated; therefore received lots of looks early and often.

Our home was an older home and needed the right buyer. This realty company understood that and showed it  beautifully. The price was set on the homes value and was not inflated; therefore received lots of looks early and often. This is an honest and ethical realty company I would highly recommend them.

She even helped represent my business at a town meeting, something any other realtor probably wouldn’t do. Without Julie, my business would not have grown to what it is today.

What can I say about Julie? She’s a wonderful, caring individual that goes above and beyond for her clients. We’ve worked with Julie many times over the past 7 years negotiating rental properties, purchasing a home and purchasing a business property. Julie always took the time to explain everything  and bargain with sellers to get us the best deal. She even helped represent my business at a town meeting, something any other realtor probably wouldn’t do. Without Julie, my business would not have grown to what it is today. I would definitely recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent and I will definitely be calling her again when we begin looking for our new home. Thanks Julie for all your hard work!
