“Julie Hertel was a wonderful realtor to work with! We met Julie when looking for a rental property in Leesburg and since we were new to the area she offered to take us around and get to know the area and surrounding communities. She was engaging, communicative, caring and thoughtful, listening to our needs and desires in buying a home. She made the process fun and we didn't feel pressured by her services. We also felt Julie Hertel would be a good negotiator when helping us to purchase a home in a competitive market. She made herself available day and night and was quick to respond to our questions. Through this experience we feel Julie has become our friend and we highly recommend her to anyone seeking a home!
Bottom line, Julie got us the house we wanted. We were the first offer in, and Julie made sure of that. She was aggressive in getting the offer on the table and she was proactive throughout the process. Julie is like that saying, "....like a swan on the surface, but paddling like crazy underneath." She did a great deal behind the scenes so we might have the least amount of stress and she also worked hard to ease the pressures of the purchasing process! Julie Hertel, we really appreciate all your hard work! Thank you!”

“I found Julie through a listing on a rental she was asked to help with. I called originally to find a rental a simply wanted to ask a few questions of the area as we were located to Virginia from the northwest. Julie spent considerable time answering my questions and offered to help me find a rental which would have had no benefit to her. I called her on a couple more occasions to ask questions about the area and then decided to reconsider renting and pointed towards a purchase. She was still no pressure but we were happy and thrilled to have her represent us in the purchase four months after our first phone call. She was tremendous in every phase of our search, selection, and closing.
Julie displayed superb knowledge of the area. She listened carefully and fully knew our needs. We saw several properties and she invested several hours over multiple months to help us all still without being under contract until the last month. We’re very grateful that she was our realtor.
She is thoughtful, honest, full of integrity, dedicated, and supremely professional.
We give our strongest endorsement of Julie Hertel. She was simply the best realtor we’ve ever worked with ever. She was amazing as a buying agent and I can only imagine that she would be a tremendous agent and advocate as a selling agent. She has our strongest endorsement. She will be you biggest advocate and help you to be satisfied of all aspects of your buying or selling experience. ”

“Buying and selling is always a stressful time. Julie told me part of her job was to minimize or remove as many of the issues as possible and she succeeded.
She kept me informed of any developments, issues etc and was a resource person. Julie was a pleasure to work with and I appreciated her expertise.”

“My house was never 'on the market'. Julie knew I was planning to sell, and when a prospective buyer was in the area she arranged a visit. The house went from 'not listed' to 'under contract'.”
Donette, Leesburg, VA (Seller)
“Julie was really great the first time I talked to her. We spoke for a long time about the process since we were a first time home buyer, and she let us know what to expect and how she would help us every step of the way. The fact that she took so much time to speak with us in an unscheduled first call really made me feel like she was in this to help us. I can tell she loves be a realtor and helping people find their new home.”
Kaitlin Hurley, Centreville (Buyer)

“Julie Hertel was a real go-getter. She was proactive, knowledgeable, and tenacious. She was always looking out for my welfare and benefit. She questioned everything and was a constant advocate for me. She is a very hands on realtor and a terrific help in going through the paperwork of a settlement. I felt very appreciative of her guidance and attendance through the whole process of the new build, walk-thrus and settlement stages. She definitely earned her commission.”
Joan M. Trepal, Leesburg, Virginia (Buyer)
“Julie was very knowledgable about the area we wanted to move to and that was important to us. Her boundless energy and knowledge were infectious. We moved on getting the house on the market faster then we would have because of Julie. She worked very hard to advertise our open houses and to get people in to look at the house. When it came down to the final sale, we trusted Julie implicitly, she was our advocate without fail. We would recommend Julie as an agent without any hesitation or reservation.
Julie patiently dealt with every single question, request, worry and fear we had. Even when it was the third time she had to repeat herself. It never mattered to her, she simply wanted to ensure we were comfortable.
Julie ensured that every single aspect of the sale and purchase of our houses was seamless and unencumbered. Every aspect of the process worked well thanks to Julie. ”
Cheryl Brown-Fitzgerald, Leesburg (Buyer)
“Julie's enthusiasm and commitment to help us find the right area and home was what convinced us to go with her. Her absolute commitment to ensure our happiness was incredible.
Julie worked hard to ensure that every aspect of advertising was used to get prospective buyers got in to see the house.
The energy Julie brought to the table was often contagious, people would engage in conversation and freely give information about what they wanted in a home, helping to make the buying process seamless.
Julie Hertel will always have my support. She is an excellent real estate agent who is savvy with people and knows her business. ”
Cheryl Brown-Fitzgerald. Leesburg (Seller)
“Our relationship with Julie actually started in September of 2014, a year prior to the purchase of our home. I was dealing with another agent, whom I felt didn't have our best interest in mind. While conversing with my co-worker and close friend, he mentioned Julie's name and told us that she was a phenomenal agent. I had already signed a commitment with a different agent, but I kept her number and eventually called her for guidance. Julie didn't have to answer any of our questions, but took the time out of her day to speak with me, and provided advise. Our search for a home eventually ended about 3 months later with no new home purchase, but I always kept Julie's number.
Julie would periodically check in with us and ask how the home search was going.
In the Summer of 2015, we decided to resume our search and this time chose Julie as our agent. My first initial impressions were " wow this woman knows what she's doing" We walked through our first home with her, and she noted several issues with the home that would come up during home inspection. I then knew that she had our best interest in mind.
We looked at nearly a dozen homes, and Julie never complained that we were looking at so many homes, and was always available to answer our questions. I remember one case specifically in which a house had just come on the market and we wanted to see it before anyone else did. We contacted Julie and she rearranged her schedule, and met with us within 1 hour to show us the home.
We eventually found our dream home and Julie was super quick with getting the offer prepared and sent over to the sellers agent.
After several back and forth offers, we were officially under contract. Throughout the process, Julie's average response time to my messages and calls was 1 hour ( not a typo, that's the truth," I never felt like she was ignoring me and was amazed at how quickly she got things done.
I will NEVER use anyone else except for Julie Hertel. If your serious about selling and / or buying a home, you would be doing yourself a disservice by choosing anyone other than Julie Hertel.
Thank you Julie !!!!! ”

“Julia Hertel was an extraordinary realtor who found us many homes to look at and eventually showed us 25 or 30 homes in the Leesburg area and help me put a deal together to eventually buy my dream home and Beacon Hill. I met Julie after calling her and for other real estate agents that had signs at Beacon Hill with all their phone numbers and Julie heard it was the best and fastest one to call me back that same day within 15 minutes I thought that was incredibly remarkable given the fact that she was driving her daughter to college that same weekend she promised to keep in touch until she got back and she did fulfill all our promises she got back to me that night as a matter of fact interested in seeing what price I wanted to pay for a house and all the parameters of what I was looking for for me and my wife. And Julie eventually helped us close our deal was a very knowledgeable on the details of real estate law and contracts and the proper way to handle things I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home whether they be a buyer or seller....
great job Julie hertel!!!”
David Brent Byer Leesburg Va (Buyer)
“Julie was considered based on a few reasons. Firstly, she seemed to understand both mine and my wife's needs and desires. Secondly, Julie was not pushy about signing an exclusivity agreement. These were major factors in our selection process.
Julie is the kind of person that you want to deal with when buying a home. She gets "it" and removes a lot of the stress associated with the buying process. Her careful consideration of our needs were tantamount from the beginning to the end of the process.”
