I bring these things to my business relationship with you: integrity - because without it, I have nothing, knowledge of the neighborhoods in Seattle because I have lived here for 34 years, marketing skills because of my 34 years of managing for results in sales and marketing, easy action plans because breaking things down into manageable steps gets things done, and continuous communication because without it the best laid plans get derailed.
 
My goal for clients is to help them make good decisions and
enjoy the benefits that good decisions bring.

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in
business and an emphasis in marketing.

Ratings & Reviews

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.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $600K in Ballard, Seattle, WA.

Julie came highly recommended to us from a family member. From start to finish she was 100% committed to helping us find a home that worked for our particular needs, tastes, and budget. It was a particularly challenging market but Julie stuck with us with remarkable patience as we went through the intense emotional roller coaster that first time homebuyers often experience. From finding financing to the closing documents she was always accessible and responsive to our needs. She showed us houses on Friday nights, helped calm us down and see the long view when it seemed hopeless, and celebrated with us when we finally found the house. She is exceptional and we are so grateful for her dedication, professionalism, and companionship.  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA.

I was led to Julie Finstad by a trusted realtor in Portland OR, who referred her indirectly, through professional associates. I feel very fortunate! Julie zeroed in on the sort of condo property I wanted, limited to areas of Seattle where I hoped to settle, and within my budget (a difficult challenge!). For several months, nothing much appeared on the market. I was living in Portland, so rushing up to Seattle to try to compete for few properties was discouraging. But Julie boosted my spirits with her warm personality and assurance that "there will be the right home for you." In the end, she found my perfect condo and helped me negotiate the right price. The only hitch was financing... I was best off finding my own lender in Portland, rather than trying to work through a Seattle mortgage lender, who had no history or real care about service to me. On my initiative, I turned to my Oregon bank, with Seattle branches. That too worked out perfectly. I couldn't be happier!  More Less
