  • We worked with Julie over the summer to find our new home. We made 2 trips to Buena Vista, with lots of preplanning each time. Julie showed us the various areas on our first visit; helped us understand the market and make a competitive offer on our second visit. Julie helped us complete the purchase remotely ( we were out of state ). We appreciate her honesty, integrity and effort in helping us find and purchase our next home.

  • Julie has been excellent to work with from beginning to end. Very quick to respond. We had not purchased a home in many years so appreciated all her help. Being from out of town we would be on a tight schedule and she was always accommodating.

  • Julie was a delight to work with! We had a lot to sell on the golf course. She came up with a reasonable listing price after running some comparisons. We had two offers and she was very helpful in guiding us with her knowledge and educated opinion. We had an accepted offer in two weeks and closed within a month. We highly recommend her!

  • 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.
