Julie Jensen - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Julie was truly a gem to work with!

She was always responsive, and her knowledge of the market was truly remarkable. We have been looking for years, and we almost purchased a house until Julie showed us some alarming concerns that we missed. Moreover, her knowledge of the marketplace really shined thru when it came to negotiating the price as we saved thousands of dollars! On the other side, she helped us rent our condo, which we needed to do in order to purchase our home. Her insights about staging resulted in 6 offers in 3 days of listing! In essence, we cannot think of a better person to help manage the process, and we are truly indebted to her as we have now found the home of our dreams!

Julie's in depth local knowledge makes her an invaluable asset.

I found her via a search and have now engaged her twice! Her knowledge of the market and local dynamics were great!

When my parents announced an intent to move from their home of 62 years, and said they had only one real estate agent (a neighbor) in mind, I thought, Oh no.

Happily that agent was Julie Jensen. Julie treated my parents like her own. She was exceedingly helpful and honest, giving them practical ideas of how to prepare their home for sale. She even supplied them with suggestions of contractors, who admirably got the work done. This was a sensitive time for our entire family, and Julie never once ruffled feathers. She was a counselor, cheerleader, and friend to us all. Keeping a watchful eye on the market, she timed the listing perfectly. After receiving multiple offers, we were thrilled to accept a top offer. The closing went smoothly, with Julie keeping us informed throughout the process. Navigating my parents' move across state lines, while trying to prep the house of my childhood for sale, were plenty daunting. But I got it done thanks to Julie.

First time we met Julie Jensen and told her our ideas, preferences, and situation, she literally predicted what type of home we eventually bought.

Although we looked all sorts of types of properties, we ended up buying and loving our new home. Julie responds promptly and was fun to work with. She can quickly solve problems that may arise. Her years of experience in Evanston and friendly demeanor made the process very smooth from beginning to end.

We were delighted to have worked with Julie Jensen.

She introduced us to the North Shore and provided us with invaluable insight as we navigated our way through several areas, neighborhoods and school options. Julie listened carefully, never imposing her own tastes to sway us, and she took the time to understand what we were looking for in a home and community. Julie applied her talents and expertise to guide us through a myriad of options – many requiring careful consideration. Julie maintained an optimistic outlook on what can be a daunting experience. She was deft in keeping calm while negotiating on our behalf. Julie patiently worked at our speed (with our many stops and starts). From first introductions to our final closing, Julie made herself available to us every step of the way.  We highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking a true partner in the home-buying process. Highly Recommended!

What do I say about an agent that is able to sell my house in a month during a global pandemic?

Need I say more? Probably not, but I will (my words of course will never live up to this larger than life super woman!). I put my house on the market in February and then Covid happened. Julie was  amazing and so supportive of my decision to shut things down. She quickly adapted to the new world order without missing a beat! Her calm and gentle manor coupled with her expertise made it a blessing during such uncertain times. In May we opened my house up to limited viewings, zooms and virtual open houses all of which Julie handled with grace and knowledge. She sold the house in a month during a global pandemic. I am not sure if anyone can really top that. Selling a house brings many emotions and doubts. Selling a house during a pandemic with a child who is high risk seemed impossible. It wasn’t because we had Julie on our team. She is the only person you should consider when selling your house. Her expertise and knowledge coupled with her savvy business sense make her an exceptional choice. But more so, Julie gets to know her clients and she listens to their needs. She will always be the agent that I recommend and will use. Exceptional.

Run, don't walk to your phone and call this Realtor.

This area is blessed with great agents, but Julie is a cut above even her high caliber peers. She has the knowledge and experience you want, but she also has deep listening skills and really pays attention to her client. For me, this has meant time savings in searches for properties, wise advice on market conditions for what buyers really want, and a keen interest making our new company successful. I know we will do many projects together.

Julie was fantastic to work with on our home purchase in Evanston.

We had some VERY specific requirements and she worked with them without question and showed us homes that were all within those parameters while letting us know that we could adjust them if needed. In the end, we found a home that matched what we needed perfectly. Julie was always available via phone/TXT and very professional. We enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her.

Devin Parsons

Julie is an enthusiastic, engaged agent.

She has good ideas and offers them whenever she think it would be helpful. We haven't sold the houses yet, so I'll wait on evaluating her negotiating skills! :-)

B&W proved to be a great resource.

Our realtor quickly acclimated us to the market conditions of the neighborhood we focused on. Within just a few days we were able to refine the search and, ultimately, found the property that 'checked all the boxes'.

Our family home was the second property Julie handled for us - one 18 years ago in Glenview and now our most recent home in Wilmette in Jan.

2018. Both homes sold in three days! Julie Jensen knows the North Shore, understands how to target prospective buyers and get them to an open house. Julie was a pro every step of the way. She explained every detail, answered every question thoroughly and actually made the labor and emotionally intensive process of selling a family home very easy. When it came to setting the price, her research, comps in the area and rationale were strategic, insightful and vetted in facts. In addition she scheduled a photo shoot that made our home shine and stand out amongst other properties in the area. Plus, her approach to marketing our home was something I had never experienced before - and it was spot on. She also recommended DIY changes along with a few professional ones and in the end they made all the difference.

We met Julie in August of last year when we had visited Chicago to scout out neighborhoods to live in.

We were moving to Chicagoland and didn't know anyone. We found her on Yelp where she had great reviews. Julie was great from the word go, she helped us get a feel of the North-shore area of Chicago and had great helpful insights. Having grown up here she lends a deeper perspective to the North-shore area and a good feel for the place. She kept us regularly updated on all the listings that were appearing in the market. We went to many of the houses that were listed and judging from our reaction she quickly understood what we were looking for. She also had some very good recommendations on Mortgage Brokers and home inspectors. Lastly she helped us negotiate a fair price for the house and very soon we were able to move into our beautiful house. Thanks!!

Julie was great to work with!

She was available any time I needed her and always had great advice. Even when discouraged, she kept our spirits up and helped us find the perfect home!

Anna Dannhausen

This is our second realty transaction with Julie Jensen and again, a terrific experience.

Julie is a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. She’s the best realtor on the north shore and we’d recommend her always. Thanks, Julie!

Harold Fischer

It was a pleasure to work with Julie Jensen in the sale of our home.

She represented us when we were selling our home. Julie knows the area of real estate well and her expertise of the market was excellent. Julie was excellent at communicating all the time with us and helped make the process work well. We were fortunate to select Julie to help us with our sale. Her insights and suggestions were perfect. If we are back again in the area of Evanston, we will surely work with Julie once again. Thank you Julie for all your help, suggestions and being there to help make everything go so smoothly. As I shared before, we were fortunate to select Julie as our real estate agent. Thank you so much.

Julie was informed and determined to sell my home.

I believe that she did everything possible to effect this. I'm deeply appreciative of her commitment and her creative hard work.

Mary Patricia Carr

Unflappable is but one of Julie's many qualities!

! She was born to be a realtor: not only smart, but a good negotiator, atttentive to clients' needs, focused on the task, creative and very tech savy. And last but not least, just a lovely person.
