"Moving is never easy… we’ve done it 3 times in the past 5 years. Despite being from Michigan originally, we were unfamiliar with the Grand Rapids area until we moved here in 2013. Fortunately, we were referred to Julie Rockwell and now WE CAN'T IMAGINE WORKING WITH ANYONE ELSE when buying or selling a home. As first time homebuyers, Julie made the process extremely seamless. She took the time to get to know us on a personal level; we had multiple conversations about our wants... and needs prior to spending time viewing properties. Julie also took us on an extensive tour of the area to help us understand exactly where we wanted to be. We never felt rushed or pushed into any particular properties… Julie refused to let us settle for anything less than a house that met all of our needs.
We moved away from the area for 2 years, and recently moved back. We worked with Julie to sell our house when we moved away, and help us find a new property when we returned. All closing transactions were flawless… she was also meticulous in prepping numerous documents for corporate relocation companies. Many friends have had horror stories about stressful closings and lackluster interactions with Real Estate Agents. We can truly say working with Julie each of these times made the process considerably easier than we could have imagined.
WHAT SETS JULIE APART IS HER WILLINGNESS TO GO ABOVE AND BEYOND. She sets a high standard for herself and exceeds expectations. Julie’s network of mortgage bankers, inspectors and contractors have all been top notch. She provided numerous recommendations which was extremely helpful during our moves. She even brought over furnishings from her own house to help stage the house we were selling..
If you are looking for a Real Estate Agent in the Grand Rapids area, JULIE SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST CALL. You will absolutely be happy to have her on your side throughout the buying or selling process."
