Julie Finstad is a brilliant real estate agent. She worked with me in both the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home. We had been working together for months searching for a new place – downsizing from my current home. It became apparent as we started to hone in on what I wanted/needed that I would need to sell my home first. This Seattle market is crazy and it takes a savvy professional to navigate. My home was listed and after 7 days – we had seven offers on the table, over asking. Julie was amazing in her ability to get the buyers to give their best offer and agree to better seller terms, including a 30 day rent back to give me time to buy a place. Once the house sold it was time to get really serious about buying. There was some new construction I had my eye on. One place in particular wasn’t quite ready to be put on the market, but I knew I wanted it. The builder had repeatedly said he would not do a pre-sale agreement. Julie went for it anyway – we put in a strong offer and Julie worked her magic. The builder said “yes” and the place was mine! Julie really led the way in negotiating both the selling and the buying to get the best deals possible. She is professional, smart, and savvy. It was a pleasure working with her.
