Burt Williams was great to work with in buying this condo in Frankfort Mi.
He kept us updated on everything that was going on and worked very closely with our mortgage broker. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in the area.
Burt and Julie are truly exceptional agents! Not only did they market our very quirky property -- a three season home designed by my mother at the end of a half mile driveway through the swamp -- so that some folks from another city fell in love with and purchased it; Julie helped us find the perfect home within our retirement price range that would let us move in with only two weeks notice. Julie also solved a huge potential closing problem when our buyers bank at the last minute decided they would require the new septic system that was included in our agreement not within 6 months but within 15 days! Julie found a local excavator who would do the work in less than that time for a very reasonable rate. Julie and Burt are my real estate heroes!
I have used Julie & Burt for two transactions now and I will continue to in the future. I like Century 21 Sleeping Bear Realty but I love Julie Williams, she and Burt have gone the extra mile for myself and my husband each time and let me tell you we were not easy clients this time.
Between having our hearts set on a home that didn't work out and my health working against us every step of the way, Julie trudged along and stuck with us through every up and down.... Finally coming down to a long awaited sale for a very deserving home owner (seller) and a very happy buyer (me)
Burt did an excellent job in helping us buy our first condo. He helped us understand the process and was very responsive. He knows the area and the market, and helped us feel comfortable that we were getting a fair deal. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Northwest Michigan area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Frankfort, MI.
Burt and Julie were very responsive to all our questions and needs. When searching for a cottage in Frankfort MI my wife and I found it very hard to get a response from real estate agents in the area. Not so with Burt and Julie.
We viewed many homes before purchasing ours on Crystal Ave. Many needed some type of repairs. Burt and Julie were very knowledgeable on contractors and inspectors in the area. They would go above and beyond to meet us with the contractors to answer any questions. Burt even helped us with getting a local mortgage professional to help facilitate a loan.
Could not ask for a more professional, responsive, and friendly real estate team.
Julie is great!! She is knowledgable, quick to respond and is always willing to help. We ran into a problem when our home was incorrectly listed on a flood plain. Julie went right to work to find out how to fix this problem. It was resolved which saved us a lot of money. We highly recommend Julie and Burt Williams!
Ah Team Burt and Julie...I will attempt to list all the ways they helped up with our purchase of our Piece of Paradise in Benzie County this spring. They really listened to us in regards to our needs and wants and budget parameters. They are so knowledgeable of the area, and think outside the box to find just the right place. We looked at as many places as we wanted, and more that they picked out for us to see, and when we found our place, we had that "this is it" moment when we walked in the front door. They seem to be available at any time of the day or night, and all types of correspondence is tended to in a very timely manner. They know all the ins and outs of home ownership and laws regarding property transfers. Any question, any time. After the sale, they still keep in contact with us to make sure we are happy with our place, and see if they can help with anything, Oh, and Burt makes a mean Fish Fry on Friday nights, and Julie is an extraordinary artist.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Frankfort, MI.
Burt did a great job for us. We were looking for a second home, put together a list of places we wanted to see and randomly contacted Burt. He devoted days to showing us homes, even meeting with us on very short notice to get us into houses we wanted to see. Burt handled the negotiations very smoothly when we finally made an offer on a home. Going above and beyond, Burt took it upon himself to meet with the sellers on our behalf, to discuss some of the details when we couldn't be there. Burt is very personable and his knowledge of the area was a real help to us. We felt comfortable asking his opinion regarding things with which we were not familiar, feeling we would get an honest answer from him. We were very glad that we contacted Burt to assist us in finding a second home - he provided us with great service and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Beulah, MI.
Although I did not meet Julie, I felt confident that having chosen Burt as my realtor I was getting "two for the price of one'! This team has their finger on the pulse of the industry and are able to predict trends. They were able to help price the property to sell at a level that attracted a buyer, and gave me the greatest profit margin. Their use of technology reached a broader audience than any other realtor that I had known, and they are well connected in the community so that when a few repairs were needed, they were able to contact a contractor to complete the repairs. Their follow through was fantastic on all fronts. All questions or concerns were answered satisfactorily and in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Burt Williams and his team to represent me again. In fact, when I retire and want to buy back into the community, I will contact Burt again to help me find a place to call home.
Julie handled a multitude of problems and questions that we had during our purchase in an extremely timely and helpful manner. She immediately put us in touch with contractors, appraisers, inspectors and bankers when we needed them. She answered our emails within minutes. She tirelessly negotiated on our behalf. She handled all of the legwork that we could not, being out of town. She went above and beyond our expectations. We have already recommended her to friends who would like to purchase property in the Frankfort/Sleeping Bear area.
