Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Mishawaka, IN.
Julie is AMAZING! Not only is she a wonderful person, she is a true professional! I sold my house in 2 months with Julie and for a great price! Before I met Julie I had a lot of stress thinking about how I would sell my home. As soon as she entered the picture it was like a weight had been lifted off I me! I was 100% confident in her abilities! It paid off... Literally! I would recommend Julie to anyone! She isn't looking out for herself and her profit, but for her clients' best interests! AMAZING experience!
Bought a house thru Julie in early 2012. Many times in past when dealing with other realtors, i have felt like they are talking down to me and wondered if we were being taken advantage of. This was never the case with Julie. We had her going from Elkhart to Topeka checking for just the right fit. She is very patient and willing to discuss even the smallest detail till we were comfortable with the selection. By the end of the transaction i can say we had made a friend with Julie. Any future searches will be going thru her from now on. Thanks Julie.
We definitely looked at lots of houses. Some we knew before we went, we weren't likely to buy it. Every time Julie was there on time with a smile and plenty of patience so that we never felt uncomfortable. She was very knowledgeable when it came time to place an offer and negotiate. I could tell that it was her desire for us to find a perfect fit for our family, and our needs, which really means alot. All in all if I ever have a real estate need in the future Julie will definitely be the one I call

We chose Julie as our buying agent and we couldn't have been happier. We always felt she was looking out for our needs, not hers, and that she was actively commited to finding us what we wanted. We're very happy with the entire process and we felt that she not only helped us find what we wanted, but that she protected our interests throughout the process. When and if it comes time for us to sell our home, there's no question in our minds about who we're calling.
My husband and I are first time home buyers in the Eklhart Area. We bought our home December 2011 and were moved in by January 2012. We came acrossed Julie Thatcher in the Home & Lifestyles magazine. We had contacted a couple others realtors, but they were not as prompt at getting back with us. After talking to Julie on the phone, we immediately felt comfortable with her, she seemed to understand our individual situation and advised us up front that she had no intentions of being pushy, but rather that she intented to be more of my support or a guide. Over a course of about a month and a half, we met with Julie every week to look at houses. We looked at about 10 to 15 homes when we found our dream home! Julie was very prompt at keeping in touch! we never had to wonder what the "latest" information with the buying process! she communicated well with the banks and other realitors. If we had questions about the homes we looked at, she always took the extra step in investigating our answers! Julie was always patient with us and had a wonderful positive attitude! As first time home buyers, we were a little nervous and even overwhelmed at times with the buying process! Julie always encouraged us to stay positive! We are more than happy with our time spent with Julie and will recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home!

Julie is such a great Realtor! My husband and I are new to the area and Julie was patient and knowledgeable - I am very picky and she spent all the time I needed - but also on my tight timeline - to find our perfect house! We told her what we were looking for in a house (nearby restaurants, schools, re-sale value) and she delivered! She smoothly negotiated our asking price and assisted us with a difficult closing. By the end of the process she was a great friend!
