Buy + Sell

YOUR FAMILY HAS OUTGROWN YOUR HOME.

I’ll help you find a new place to take root.

When you close your eyes, you can practically see it …

  • That open concept home with more space and less clutter 
  • A kitchen you can actually entertain in
  • Bedrooms for each kiddo
  • Enough bathrooms to keep the kids from fighting (and hey, maybe you can all get somewhere on time for a change)
  • Closets galore
  • A yard big enough to tire the kids out by bedtime (just in time for you to relax with your herbal tea)
  • A hallway free of foot-stabbing Legos (because the Legos are neatly organized in the new playroom)

Your “More Space, Less Stress” fantasy is well within reach (pinky promise).

We’ll bring you closer together, by finding you a home with more space.

Introducing

Our Elevate Process

 

Our proven process for profitably selling your current home, so you can elevate your Northern California lifestyle and upsize into your next home — without upending your life or your budget. 

 

How It Works

STEP 1: ENVISION

This is where you dream big and share your vision of what life will like in your new home. We’ll start with what’s not working in your existing home. Do you want a higher rated school district? A home office? More space for your growing family? 

By understanding your “why,” we can get crystal clear on what you want AND need out of your new home, so we can prioritize your non-negotiables and refine our search accordingly. We’ll also connect you with a lender that can help you determine your budget.

STEP 2:  PREPARE 

During this phase, we’ll get your house ready for the market. We’ll start by assessing possible repairs or slight upgrades that may help you sell your home faster and for more money. If the jobs are too big or burdensome for you to tackle alone, don’t stress. You’ll have access to our network of carefully vetted cleaning crews, landscapers, painters, etc. (including the discounts we’ve negotiated).

Next, we’ll coordinate stagers, a photographer, and a videographer to make sure when buyers see your home online, they call their agent immediately to schedule a showing. Finally, our in-house marketing team will prepare print and online marketing to get your home maximum exposure.

STEP 3: MARKET

Marketing is our superpower. My team and I invest serious time, energy, and marketing funds into making sure your home sells fast, and for the highest possible price. While the average real estate agent is using outdated traditional methods of marketing your home, we take a different approach. Our team will orchestrate a Grand Opening Event to showcase your property and execute our strategic, disruptive, online marketing strategy. Our goal is to get your home in front of as many potential buyers as possible in the least amount of time so you don’t need to be inconvenienced by showings for weeks on end and keeping your house in show-ready condition.  

Once the right buyer falls in love with your house, we’ll review their offer in detail, make sure their financing is in place, and negotiate the best possible terms on your behalf.

By having your current house already in escrow, we are in a solid negotiating position once we find your new home. It’s all part of our master plan to help you upsize without the financial stress. 

STEP 4:  EXPLORE

Beep, beep! I got the keys to the house-hunting jeep (OK, fine, it’s more like a stylish mom wagon). It’s time to start actively looking for homes that align with the plan created during our ENVISION process. Since we’ll have already prioritized your non-negotiables, we can be hyper-focused on exploring only the properties that meet your vision. And because no one knows the local Placer, Sacramento and El Dorado Counties like my team and I do, you can rest easy knowing we know where all the hidden gems are.

Once you find “the one”, we’ll develop your offer strategy. I put my economics, negotiating, and real estate knowledge to work and determine the best way to position your offer.

After your offer is accepted, we start the inspection process to make sure you fully understand the condition of the home. If issues come up, I’ll make sure you don’t miss your windows to renegotiate with the seller or back out without losing your earnest money. We know this is a huge financial step for you, and our goal is to make sure you are 100% comfortable with your purchase. 

STEP 5: ELEVATE

During this last phase, we’ll work together with title and escrow to close on your current house AND your new home in perfect harmony. We’ll help you stay sane and calm throughout this process and make sure you are informed every step of the way. 

Your hard work has paid off and you can start living the life you dreamt of in the ENVISION process. You can now work from home in your new home office, your kids can stop bickering because they have their own space, you can have overnight guests in the guestroom or host pool parties in your new backyard … whatever your goals were, now is the time to enjoy them. 

You now have a home that makes every day worth celebrating.

Julee was fantastic to work with. She is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and diligent. Julee always made us feel like we were her priority throughout every step of the way. As first time home buyers, we appreciated that she took her time to explain the process to us. If anyone is looking for a realtor, hands down go with Julee. She is amazing!

Nancy

JULEE is a Unicorn! She is all business with an understanding of what her clients need and want! But most importantly she is honest and knowledgeable about the whole process, even the parts she isn’t responsible for. We are truly thankful for her help with making our first purchase a smooth process!! And will using her services again when we sell! Thank you, Julee!

Priscilla F.

Julee has been amazing throughout our whole process. Julee is very knowledgeable, extremely informative, and extraordinarily patient.

We could not have asked for a better realtor. Julee went above and beyond the call of duty. Whether it was normal business hours or even after work hours, Julee always made herself available to answer any questions we may have had.

I would recommend Julee to everyone and anyone in the market. It has been an absolute pleasure. If we had to start over and do it all over again, one thing is for sure, Julee would be our go to.

Robbie Cruz

Julee is wonderful! She worked with me to purchase my very first home and I couldn’t have asked for a better agent. I had recommended her to some friends who loved working with her too. She is friendly, prompt, and genuinely cares about finding what works best for her clients and their personal situation. We’re now hoping to collaborate with her on opportunities in Sacramento, and would recommend her to anyone who has a chance to work with her.

Kristina

Julie waded through every available property and chose the best of the best for us. It was a turn key process with Julee even finding a tenant for us! Her  availability was over the top. I would text her on a Saturday or after hours not expecting her to reply until the next business day, but she always did within the hour. She guided us without pushing. She identified pitfalls and protected us from them. Outstanding in every way. I am in customer service for a national company and I would hire her in a minute.
