Normally I have been guilty of writing more negative reviews rather than positive ones, mainly because negative products elicit a stronger reaction than something that you expect to work well, I guess that's just human nature, however, this is one of those experiences that gives me a very strong positive reaction, I feel that I should preach about it to anyone that will listen to me.
Julie Parker is an absolute gem. She is detail oriented, hard working and perhaps most importantly, customer focused. Julie knows her business and is a wealth of information on realty, which one would expect, but she also has a solid understanding of the property market on the entire island. In a number of circumstances Julie was able to recommend options on various professional services that we were able to make use of – this was particularly helpful as we were not local.
Originally from Ontario, my wife and I started looking for property on Prince Edward Island about two years ago, just before the Covid Pandemic shut the island down. For 18 months we waited for the Island to loosen its visitation rules and when it looked likely that this would eventually happen we started looking for a local agent that could represent us and help us with our search. I won’t go into details of how many agencies we reached out to for information and will admit that we were somewhat surprised when we received a response to an enquiry almost immediately from Julie. We started with some basic introductions and details of what we were looking for with budgets etc. Julie really put the hammer down relative to our search and she was in regular contact with us, presenting options, reviewing properties that we found online and answering all sorts of questions that we threw at her. Julie really does go the extra mile. Eventually we traveled to PEI with a definite objective of finalizing the area where we wanted to live. We were on the island for two weeks and Julie had prepared a number of viewings for us – on day 4 we made an offer on a property – on day 6 the closing date was set - on day 10 we had a home inspection and five weeks later we were back on the island for the closing. Now that we have settled on our first purchase we intend to work closely with Julie on further projects.
If you are looking for someone to help you with a real estate situation, Julie would be an excellent choice.
