Client Review

We have worked with several realtors in the past, but never have we had a realtor like Julia Israel. As far as our church, and my wife and I are concerned, we will maintain Julia as our realtor. Her customer service skills is 5 stars. She treated us with the utmost respect, worked with what we wanted, and made the sale very gratifying.
