Julia started as a realtor in 2015. She is on track to sell over 103 homes in her first three years. Along with doing the normal listing agent duties, she helps sellers with some renovations that will help them get more money on the sale. This really helps residential sales, but also helps us as investors to get top dollar on our properties when we sell.
