I take great pride in the work that I do for my clients. I am not interested in just selling you a home and collecting a commission. I am interested in providing you with exceptional service from start to finish—even after you move into your new home. I treat all of my clients, prospects and colleagues like gold, because I truly believe in building relationships to build a strong business. Here are what some of my most recent clients have had to say.
KATHLEEN AND GARY, Sterling, VA
We cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Julie Bowman. The first time we met her she came prepared with a professional sales analysis of our home and our neighborhood and a solid plan for online marketing of our home. We knew that potential buyers of our home would be doing all of their “home shopping” online, so it was very important to us to have an agent that had an exceptional command of social media to market and sell our home. Julie Bowman has an impressive online and social media presence which she uses effectively to market and sell her properties. Julie was always available to us for any questions, concerns or need of meeting face to face. She was adept at electronic communication which was essential to our ability to stay in close contact with our agent. She gave us solid advice at every step of the process from what changes to make to our home, to how to stage and which offers to seriously consider. We sold our house in less than 48 hours, and for $5,000 over asking price. This was a BIG item on our “to do” list as we prepare to retire and move. Thanks to Julie, our biggest item on the list was the easiest to get done!
PETRA AND ANDY, Sterling, VA
Julie did an amazing job and helped keep our stress levels down while we were buying a house out-of-state at the same time as selling our current home in Virginia. She provided great input in regards to timing of events and always made sure we were prepared for each one. In addition to this, she priced our home accurately; had great photos taken our home; negotiated a great deal and communicated (timely) updates during the entire process. We highly recommend Julie Bowman if you are looking for a realtor; she is a ROCK STAR!
CHRIS AND LAURIE, Sterling, VA
What a pleasure it was to work with Julie. She was trustworthy and invaluable as an agent as we sold one home and purchased another. We would not have wanted to go through this process without her knowledge and expertise.
We were very particular where we wanted to be located and to stay within our current school zone so our search was very narrow. It took us over two years to find our perfect home and Julie worked with us, without pressure, to make sure we made the best decisions. She stayed calm and encouraging at every turn even when we were ready to throw in the towel. At one point we were going to settle on another house in a different school zone and Julie actually encouraged us to not settle.
She is truly vested in finding you the home you described to her in the initial meeting and is not in it for the quick sale.
At every step Julie was professional and organized and even played therapist during this stressful but exciting time. Julie handled the purchase of our current home and the sale of our previous home and handled any hiccup along the way with ease so the stress was off of us.
If you are a buyer, seller, or both like we were; Julie will assist you every step of the way and even think of things you didn’t know were important in the real estate world. We are lucky and happy to have had Julie guide us through buying and selling with her honesty, expertise and enthusiasm.
CHRISTINA AND JORGE, Sterling, VA
Buying or selling a home can be extremely difficult. Doing so simultaneously adds to the tension and requires the assistance of a knowledgeable and trusted realtor – one whose ultimate goal is customer satisfaction and not just a quick commission.
Having recently gone through this process, I have no reservation in highly recommending Julie Bowman. With Julie’s counsel and expertise, the process went incredibly smoothly. She helped us every step of the way. At times, she seemed to read our minds and anticipated our questions or concerns before we even formulated them. She is incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. She walked us through every decision we made and provided timely feedback, which is so important when making such life changing transactions. I can’t overstate our satisfaction with working with her!
MARK AND DANETTE, Leesburg, VA
We really consider ourselves lucky that we met Julie Bowman. My wife and I were very picky about homes and it took us a very long time to find that perfect home. We definitely could not have done that without Julie. She spent a huge amount of time with us, she very much related to our situation with kids and made us aware of things around a home as well as potential issues inside the home that may or may not be good for us or the kids. She was able to pick up on our styles very quickly and we were not having any of our time wasted by looking at homes that clearly wouldn’t fit us. I’m sure it took a lot of patience to work with us, but not once did we feel that Julie was getting irritated with us or that she was running out of steam. She worked non-stop from the start to the very end. At one point we went from trying to find a resell to attempting to have our home built. That was no problem for Julie, she just rolled with it. Ultimately we had decided to give up altogether and just rent another year, but Julie pushed through that and said “I have just one more for you to look at, I think it’s the one”. And sure enough it was the home we ended up buying and it is the perfect house, community, and area for us. The negotiation and closing process went extremely smooth and there were absolutely no surprises. Julie told us what to expect, and that’s exactly what was presented. We went through our own bank and Julie had zero issues with reaching out to them and asking why something was taking so long or to get status updates throughout. And all of this is why we would recommend Julie to our friends and family and why we would work with her again in the future.
MARK AND AMANDA, Sterling, VA
Julie was quick to respond to my inquiry, accommodating of our schedule, and came across as helpful and not pushy. From our first phone conversation I felt Julie was going be the right choice. Knowing we had the right Realtor for us was one of the main things holding us back, but then we met Julie. At our first meeting she listened and then showed us that she knew how to help and selling our house would not only be possible, but could sell for a little more than we had hoped. Julie proved to be top-notch. We had a full-priced offer within 24 hours of the house being listed! Before our first meeting with Julie, we knew we wanted to sell, but weren’t sure it was possible. Julie showed us step-by-step what the process would be and gave us the confidence that it could be a reality.
Her advice on staging was specific, achievable, and effective. We were able to complete everything to prepare for the photographer in just two weekends after our first meeting with her. Our listing and photos attracted four showings in the first day and an offer in hand the same night. She negotiated with our buyer to get us the rent-back we needed. Since the offer was what we were looking for, we accepted and were able to cancel our open house planned for that weekend. Julie’s organization and execution of the plan resulted in the best possible scenario. Julie Bowman is the ultimate professional. She’s reliable, responsive, skilled, informed, AND fun to work with! Julie made what we thought might not even be possible a success. I can’t imagine a more painless home sale.
TUCKER AND BRIGID, Sterling, VA
Having dealt with a number of realtors in the past, we can confidently say that Julie Bowman would rank at the top of our list. Her customer service and willingness to go the extra mile throughout the process was unparalleled. She was a true pleasure to work with an consistently displayed a high level of professionalism, knowledge and work ethic. She was consistently thoughtful and responsive and it was clear that her clients are her top priority. Her efforts and insight were definitely a primary reason as to why we had multiple offers on our home and ultimately sold within one week! I would highly recommend Julie to others actively looking for an agent who will go the extra mile!
MARLENE, Sterling, VA
Julie Bowman is the best realtor I have ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable about all things real-estate. She consistently went above and beyond to keep me informed and educated about the process. I knew what was coming and what was expected and when it was expected. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a property.
ANN K., Sterling, VA
Julie Bowman was a neighbor. I knew her on a social level. I knew she was very organized in her life and very trustworthy. I knew she would work well for me and be ethical in selling my home. As I started working with her on selling my house I found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the industry. She shared her experience when discussing pricing of the house, what needed to be updated to make the house show well and in answering my many questions. I thought this was to be my forever home and had the house almost finished in updating. I lived in this home for 34 years. I loved the cul de sac I lived in and my neighbors.
I retired and decided to move to Florida to be with my family. It was difficult moving from my home and neighborhood. Ms. Bowman was so supportive and understanding of my feelings. Ms. Bowman went out her her way to do the “extras”. For example I asked if she could check and make sure I packed all my belongings after I moved. I was afraid that I may have left something behind. She sent me a night light that I forgot and left plugged in the wall. I was surprised that she sent it by mail. She also checked my mailbox and sent me a large package with mail that the US Postal Service did not forward.
After the house inspection it was found that the sump pump was a bit “sluggish”. Ms. Bowman got a plumber to replace the sump pump since I had already moved to Florida. There was a rain storm the day the plumber was called. Ms. Bowman made several trips to my house that night to make sure the pump was functioning and no flood ensued. I was extremely pleased with the work Ms. Bowman does. Ms. Bowman comes highly recommended as a realtor.
JANA and MICHAEL, Waterford, VA
Julie has been a complete breath of fresh air to work with during a high stress time of buying and selling our home. She was on top of anything/everything we asked and even things we didn’t ask but she knew that it was necessary. Right from the start, we were impressed with Julie and had the utmost confidence in her knowledge and expertise. She had our best interest at heart the entire time and was extremely patient with our demands. We will most definitely recommend her to friends and family. We couldn’t be happier! Jana- Sterling, VA
LESINA and JOE, Sterling, VA
Julie is a close friend. Our sons have been friends since kindergarten. We needed to sell fast and relocate out of state for a new job. Julie was amazing! So helpful, flexible, answered questions, and had great advice on home improvements and quick sales. We had an offer on the 2nd day listed!! We couldn’t be happier. Couldn’t ask for a better experience!! Will recommend her to all of our friends in the NOVA area. Top notch!! Couldn’t ask for anything more.
KELSEY and TYLER, Ashburn, VA
Julie is a great help when researching houses to buy! She provides listings as soon as they come available that match the criteria we want! She helped my boyfriend and I find a perfect place to start our home together in Ashburn. She is extremely responsive and always answers any questions we had regarding a listing. Even more, once we rented, she followed up with us to see how we were doing and how we liked the place so far.
