If you are thinking Real Estate, there is only one name to remember

Julie Gainfort

Accomplished, professional, down to earth and ready to make things happen, Julie will commit herself to you and your property and generate results that often surprise and delight.

"For me, selling real estate is a lifestyle within itself. Properties are always in demand, people are always looking at moving to Thames, the Thames Coast or into new and different lifestyle opportunities, it's just a matter of how fast they want to move".

"Everyone should have Julie" is how one client described it.

Finger on the Pulse
"There is nothing more fulfilling than helping people achieve the unexpected. It's not always possible, but it comes with time, effort, energy and knowing, and I mean really knowing the market, what we have available. Just as important is keeping your finger on the pulse of what is coming on to the market and how to match that with qualified buyers who are ready to spring into action when the opportunity presents itself".

Depth of Knowledge
One of the benefits of previously working in Property Management is that it gives me a deeper understanding of our town, the properties, the highlights and pitfalls people need to be aware of when they are considering buying in certain areas, and I can guide their decision making. I won't make choices for them, but am always up front if I feel they are heading in the wrong direction or won't be happy in the longer term with their choices.

Doing the Right Thing
For me, honesty is key to making a real difference in peoples lives and the choices they make. I need to know that when I go home at the end of the day, I have done the very best I can by every client and that I have given them the most appropriate help and guidance possible.

Keeping Pace
And in this fast changing market, with the added pressure of ever changing laws and legislation - staying on top of these changes means a personal commitment to continuous change, learning, personal and professional development.

"Julie's performance in selling our property was exceptional. Her appraisal of the property proved to be accurate and demonstrated that she was in close touch with the market. From the outset it was clear that Julie was working to achieve the best possible result for us. We believe she was successful as the sale exceeded our expectations. With two very interested buyers, Julie handled the situation with skill to our advantage. She has a courteous, low pressure style which we like. We have now bought and sold through Julie and have been 100% satisfied on both occasions".
~ Bruce & Margaret Millar

"Just a short note to congratulate Julie on the manner in which she conducted herself and the skill she demonstrated in securing an unconditional offer from us on the property we sought to purchase. Julie demonstrated a high level of training and was able to cope with several instances in the negotiations when we were about to walk away. I have recently sold my interest as principal in Commercial Realty Ltd after setting it up in 1989. I was also responsible for the in house training as required by the new act. I remain very impressed with Julie. She represented the company and your client with skill and professionalism that I was pleased to see".
~ Maurice Walker

"Julie was excellent at staying in contact via email as well as by telephone. She also kept us up to date as soon as there were any new happenings regarding the potential sale of our property in Thames. Julie gave good and realistic advice on what she thought was feasible for the pricing and marketing of our property. She was very inclusive of our family members and especially of my aging mother - commenting on the lovely garden".
~ Lyn Cameron

"From the very start of selling my house to even finding me a place to rent when the house I was hoping to buy failed its building report, I felt Julie went way beyond being 'just an agent'" ~ Bob Ashwell

"Julie is very caring. She really listened to what we needed & communicated with us at the highest level. Awesome at keeping in contact with us before - and after we went on the market. We felt very priviledged to be able to work with her & the lovely kind way she looked after us. Keep up the great work Julie"
~ Jeremy & Carolyn Robbins

"In all aspects of the sale process - friendly & communicates very well - always stays in touch"
~C Steel

"Exuded professionalism without comprominsing her friendliness. Dogged persistence with the deal looked dead. Always cheery and confident that we would succeed and we were working as a team. Never slow to seek advice on the legal issues and clearly stated her area of expertise ie selling real estate. Julie is a woman of integrity and her honesty shines out - we would recommend her services to others without hesitation."
~ Virginia Clay

"Julie's initial advice regarding our inquiry in relation to the listing of our property for ale was very informative and Julie's sound advice gave us confidence in our decision to list with Julie and Harcourts. Julie kept us well informed of viewer and buyer interest throughout the sale process. After the agreement became unconditional we were very appreciative of Julie's continuation to support us in all matters related to the conditions of sale. We found that Julie's property knowledge, professionalism, marketing skills, sound advice and positive approach to her obligations related to real-estate sales was impeccable. Should we need the service of a real estate person in the future we would without hesitation look towards Julie because of her dedication to duties in all matters related to Real Estate Sales".
~A Mckenzie

"Accurate advice on the property value, asking price and subsequent negotiation to sell. Very good communication". ~- B. Miller

"Julie follows up on any questions or further information. we required on the property. She continued contact throughout the purchase process and always returned our phone calls. Just really helpful during the whole procedure. Listens to what you say!"

"I have dealt with Julie over the last 10yrs as rental agent as well as when searching for a house to buy. When I decided to sell my home recently, Julie is the only agent I would work with. Julie is patient, understanding and most importantly for me listened to what I wanted or needed. Julie made the sales/buying process so easy for me from start to finish. Thank you so much Julie".

"Julie possesses all the attributes listed at the bottom of the page - property knowledge, experience, honesty, ethics, professionalism, enthusiasm, listening skills etc - could have been taken from her own manual."

"Julie provided the best possible service in every way. She has an excellent ability to question people and understand just what they are wanting in a property, and took me directly to the house I eventually bought. From then on she continued to help me in numerous ways through the negotations and I would certainly recommend her to anyone I knew who was looking to buy a house".

"Julie is very efficient and pleasant to work with".

"Julie was very friendly and helpful in every way. She was always available to answer any queries and went out of her way to make sure the sellers cleaned up all the junk on the property. She also managed to get the sellers to re-negotiate when the LIM Report had some items unsatisfactory. Totally recommend her for any Real Estate Business."

"In all aspects had all your interests from her heart." ~ WE O'Hara

"Julie provided excellent service in every way, including information etc. Her personality was to the extreme. Harcourts should be very proud to have her as a salesperson."

"Julie updated us whenever relevancy applied. She was clear, fast, with concise communication. Very polite, well spoken and not patronising. Julie treated me with great dignity and respect. A very professional agent with whom I would have no hesitation contacting again and would highly recommend her to other potential buyers/sellers".
