As a real estate investor, I have had the opportunity to work with many realtors over the years throughout the US. I can say without reservation, Julie Houston and the Houston Team is by far, the best I have ever worked with. Julie and her team respond quickly, communicate often and attend to all the minutiae that can derail a sale if not paid attention to. Julie is amazing at marketing your home from the highly detailed description, professional level photography and incredible staging. Julie and her team don’t just sell homes; they build long term, long lasting relationships. This is why she is as successful as she is and I very much look forward to our next transaction together.
I can’t say enough how impressed I am with the Houston Team! Julie and her team were upfront with me on the value of my home in San Marcos. She had it professionally staged and photographed prior to listing and followed it up with a fantastic marketing campaign. With Julie’s help and extraordinary knowledge of the market, I listed my home and was under contract within a few short weeks, while communicating with me every step of the way. Julie and her team pay attention to every detail and I can’t recommend her highly enough for ALL your real estate needs!

If you want to sell your home, you have found the perfect team, Julie Houston and the Houston Team. I needed the best combination of representation and advice to sell my home in Rancho Santa Fe and I found it. As soon as I contacted Julie, the team jumped into action immediately to help. Julie met with me the same day and the process started right away. They have an amazing formula of marketing & know-how to sell your home quickly. They start with thorough analysis of the market to price my home, a professional photographer with a very detailed description and continue with a very comprehensive marketing plan. The team provided a steady flow of information so that you know exactly what is going on at all times. My home sold quickly and the entire process was extraordinarily smooth - truly amazing. If you want to sell your home, call Julie…she delivers.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Julie Houston in selling my home and I cannot say enough good things about Julie and the Houston Team. They have the perfect mix of professionalism, smarts, and personality. No one knows the Carlsbad area better than she does. She knows the area inside and out and knows exactly where the market is at any given time. At my first meeting, Julie came completely prepared with research, analysis and offered refreshing and realistic pricing and marketing recommendations. Her internal team work is no less impressive; offering consistent direction, cohesive responses and timely outcomes. I found Julie and her team to be concerned and understanding at all times. They are true professionals, working in sync at all times. Julie and her team are gifted with their vision, integrity and the well-earned trustworthiness they impart. I essentially handed Julie the house keys and she took care of every detail. She works exceptionally hard, but presents a simple and clean outline of everything. Julie and her team make hard look easy, which in today’s market is quite an art form. I hoped for assistance, but Julie and the Houston Team delivered amazement. If you want the best, call Julie Houston.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Carlsbad, CA.
My wife and I recently hired Julie to sell our home in Carlsbad, CA. For some time I’d watched her sell other homes in our neighborhood, and always heard stellar reviews of her performance. That “SOLD” signs went up quickly on those homes wasn’t lost on me either...
I phoned Julie Houston on a Monday and she stopped by later that day to go over details.
Within 48 hours, a professional stager arrived and groomed our home, and later a photographer created great images for the websites, portals and printed sales materials. All of the services and support materials were absolutely first-class. I work in advertising and still marveled at the quality of all the work and particularly the beautiful card stock and print quality of the take-aways. Everyone was cordial and professional.
But what really counts in these dealings is the sale...
Within our first week of listing we had a great offer. A skilled negotiator, Julie got us more than our asking price.
The ensuing proceedings went off so smoothly, at times I wasn’t sure it was even happening. Through it all, Julie her staff, and the related services, (Title Co, etc.). Kept us abreast of everything that was going on. The few requests for documentation, signatures, etc., were handled digitally, and easily accomplished.
I’ve bought and sold more than a few properties, and this was, by far the smoothest and most pleasurable of all my experiences.
Selling a home can be very stressful. Julie and her team made the process actually enjoyable! Her enthusiasm is contagious, and her upbeat, can-do attitude buoyed everyone, ourselves included, during the sale.
I was overwhelmed with the outstanding quality of work Julie Houston performed for myself with my listing(s) and sale(s). I have been a client for multiple sales and I am very happy to have them represent me again. The entire experience of the Houston Team in place is beyond anything a client would ever imagine in real estate. My property(s) were professionally marketed, sold promptly...and for top dollar. The support and level of sophistication regarding every aspect of the sale(s) was superb. She is extraordinary. I would highly recommend Julie to everyone selling or buying real estate.

We have used Houston Team & Associates for the sales of our last two houses in North County. We believe that their knowledge and professionalism is unmatched in the industry, and we would definitely use them again! They will make sure your house is positioned well in the market...our last house sold in less than three days!
We have found them to be readily available throughout the entire home selling process, whether it is advising us how to best prepare our house for sale or negotiating on our behalf during the escrow process. During what can be a difficult escrow in today's market, the Houston Team will represent your best interests throughout the entire process. We definitely recommend the Houston Team & Associates to anyone who is looking for a professional, friendly and caring team to go through the home buying and home selling process with.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $400K in San Marcos, CA.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Julie Houston and she made the whole process so pleasant and easy for us. We were first-time home buyers and Julie explained everything we needed to know and we trusted her completely to get us the best home possible. In fact, she got us our dream home and we couldn't be happier! Julie is aggressive and will fight for you; but she will always do it with a smile on her face. Julie knows San Diego so well and I highly recommend her to anyone. We love our home so much and owe it all to Julie. Plus, she got us an amazing grill as a house-warming present! Thank you Julie! :)

Julie and Michael are excellent. There's no pressure at all. The whole team is working very hard. Julie got excellent price for my house; actually, the best price in my neighborhood. She also got very good price for one of my neighbors as well. I'm truly, truly pleased with The Houson Team. In fact, Julie was refered to me by my relatives. This is the best team. They really work for you. Julie made sure we were very happy before closing the deal. I recommended Julie to all of my neighbors, friends and relatives and now I'm recommending The Houston Team to you all.
