Kenny: "Ok, so my name is Kenny Pierce and I lived in Toronto for the last decade and prior to that: Seattle. And I’ve just moved back out for purpose of being close to the family. I was debating on whether or not I was gonna sell my loft here, which was my 5th property. I’ve bought and sold and renovated and done all kinds of things beforehand and have dealt with other realtors. And so, I had a friend who actually put me in touch with Julie, I was very lucky in that regard.
I was not sure if this was the time and a lot of realtors will normally ask you questions about your place and space an such. Julie - what set her apart from other people was that she was asking me questions about what I think I really want to do, whether the timing was right. And I think this is even true now because she tends to just ask you questions about what was going on with you rather than what was going on with your space. That’s at her part! I’ve dealt with realtors, I have people in my family that are realtors as well and I know they have to make a living, they have to find clients and such, but I don’t genuinely think that that was the case and I don’t think that’s the case now with her and her clients. I think she has to see the questions about what you need, sort of gaze whether the timing is right or the timing is not right now. She’ll sort of throw some ideas out there and will check back with you later. In my case I think I’ve already made up my mind, but I needed to hear some encouragement and such.
So, she was great! I was pretty open about things that are important to me, sort of where I want to go, where I want to be, and you know, gave her the listing and such and I don’t regret a second of it. And she made the process easier, I just sort of stepped back and trusted her that things will happen and they did and worked out really well. In fact, they worked out so well with her, that I was put in touch with someone near and dear and close to her in BC where I ended up and that played out really well too, so it was a seamless transaction and I couldn’t be more grateful."
