Client Testimonial

“We would absolutely recommend working with Julie Gardner and her team!  Julie is a true professional who really took the time to understand our needs/wants.  I was fully confident in her knowledge of the Missoula real estate market.  She and her assistants were so incredibly patient with us, as we struggled between the decision of buying an existing home or purchasing a lot to build a new home.  Julie, and her assistants Shawn and Erin are a great team that worked incredibly hard for us!!   We are so grateful!”

“I first contacted Julie about purchasing a residence she had listed in 2015 and ended up calling the place home for two years. When a job opportunity called for me to relocate in a short timeframe I immediately called Julie to list the home for me. She had multiple offers for me in just a few days. From purchasing a home on a quick close timeline to selling it just as quick, Julie and her team are upmost professionals. They go above and beyond on every detail and truly make you feel like a friend and not just a client. I feel privileged to have worked with Julie twice in two years and would recommend her to anyone trying to buy or sell. Julie, Shawn and Erin are an extraordinary team and Missoula is lucky to have them.”

“Julie and her team are ON IT, and by “IT,” I mean EVERYTHING. They efficiently assumed all of the hassles and responsibilities that they could during my home buying process.  When a task required my involvement, they sent me pleasant reminders and offered to assist.  Not once did I wish for a quicker email response time or call back, or feel that I wasn’t a priority.

Immediately upon meeting Julie, I recognized that she is well connected in Missoula and her roots and associations are varied, genuine, and well established.  This secured my confidence that she would be honest and upfront, and never pressure a deal with insincere tactics for a short-term gain. Learning about Julie’s law degree also inspired confidence that she is sharp and capable, and she understands all the wording in the contracts needing my signatures.

Finally, Julie, Shawn, and Erin are very enjoyable to work with. They all made me feel like they had ample time to listen to my concerns, ideas, and brainstorming. When one or all of my three young children were causing havoc in the house I wanted to buy or the title company office, they didn’t seem bothered a bit.  They all seemed to enjoy their work and each other.  What more can i say?!  If you need a realtor, call Julie Gardner’s office!!”

“Realtors I’ve worked with in the past didn’t listen to me and just showed me what they wanted me to buy. But Julie listened to what I said, asked questions that made me think, and showed me properties that made sense. With her, I found exactly the right place. I totally fell in love with it, but she looked out for me. She spotted some issues and came up with solutions that worked for the sellers and for me. And her staff is also very knowledgeable and helpful and friendly! Julie and her team stayed in touch and I always knew what was going on and came next. They really are great!”

“Because my husband and I do not live in Missoula, I had no idea who to choose as my real estate agent until I did some research on the internet.  It did not take long to find Julie Gardner who is an outstanding professional with impressive credentials.

Julie Gardner has two exceptional real estate professionals (Erin and Shawn) that work for her.  They are definite assets to Julie’s business.  Julie as well as Erin and Shawn took time and truly made me feel that they care.  They listened to my wants and concerns about purchasing property in the Missoula area.  In addition to Julie, Erin, or Shawn promptly answering every email and phone call from me; every week I received listings of property that fit my needs.  Best of all, they gave assistance and suggestions in helping my husband and I make the best decision of our lives.  There is no doubt in my mind that Julie, Erin and Shawn go well beyond what is expected.  They are true professionals.

I would HIGHLY recommend Julie Gardner to anyone buying a home or land.   You will not be disappointed with the service provided by Julie Gardner.”

“Julie Gardner with Lambros Real Estate, ERA was recommended to us by a builder in town who said that she is “the most honest realtor in all of Missoula.” We wholeheartedly agree and add to that statement that she is the hardest working one.

Julie and her team, Shawn and Erin, really work for you. We were selling a home in an area 30 miles outside of Missoula. Julie not only advised us on pricing and strategy for selling but also advertised and beyond the usual sources creatively provided visibility for our home. Through her efforts we were able to finalize a deal with a buyer swiftly and effortlessly. She carried us through the process without a hitch.

Julie and her team were readily available for any questions or concerns. Their response to us was quick and efficient, and everything was handled for us—even the sale of our furniture and some other personal property.

We offer an unqualified recommendation of Julie Gardner in all respects. Every aspect of the business of selling our home was handled professionally and knowledgeably. We could not have been more pleased with our experience.”

“Julie Gardner shepherded us through a complicated combination of selling one house and buying another.  Throughout the whole process, she was the perfect combination of professional and supportive, providing expertise and sound advice mixed with friendly encouragement and support, all in just the right proportions and at the right times.  We wouldn’t be living in our dream house without her.”

***

“As a new resident to Montana, Julie did a fantastic job showing me exactly what I thought we were looking for and then exactly what we really needed. She was knowledgeable on the market, and rightly encouraged me when we needed to move quickly, but also so patient with a second look to FaceTime the whole house to my husband. She made closing from out of state a breeze. I do not think we would be in this home if it wasn’t for her expertise, and it is the perfect home for us.”

***

“We utilized Julie Gardner as our realtor and could not have been more pleased! Julie and her team are professional, knowledgeable, prompt and kind. From the very first appointment to closing day, Julie paid close attention to every detail and made the sale both enjoyable and easy. She is simply fantastic!”

“Julie Gardner and her two very professional Assistants, Shawn and Erin were very helpful through every step of our home buying process. As this was our first home purchase, my fiancé and I had very little knowledge of what it would take to get into a home. Julie and her Assistants guided us through each step and educated us along the way. She was very proactive and timely with any of our concerns and always made sure that we were comfortable with solutions prior to moving forward.

Julie was both the Seller’s and the Buyer’s (us) Agent for our transaction; we were very impressed with her ability to negotiate compromises that fully satisfied our concerns, while also acting in the interest of the seller. From the offer to the counter-offer to the financing, and all the way through to closing, we have felt that our home buyers process was a ‘good for us, good for them’ transaction and that our best interests were supported the entire time.

We are now very happy Missoula home owners and owe a great deal of thanks to Julie Gardner and her team at Lambros Real Estate for walking us through our first time home buyers process. If you’re looking to purchase or sell a home in the Missoula area, we can highly recommend working with Julie. Her professionalism and personal attention has made her one of Missoula’s top Agents and our experience only adds to her positive reputation in our community.”

“We have only great things to say about Julie Gardner. She helped us prepare our home to put on the market and helped us to get the best price in selling our home.  She and her staff were always available when questions came up. Julie helped us to find a new home and gave us information on new listings on a regular basis. We appreciated her taking the initiative on matters that we didn’t even know needed addressing!  Her professionalism, knowledge, and follow through are exemplary. She has a friendly personality, and we will certainly use her again.”

“I had a great experience working with Julie Gardner and her team! If you’re looking for a realtor who is knowledgeable, has integrity and a success rate to prove her abilities, Julie Gardner is the one.  When I first met with Julie, she actually tried to convince me NOT to sell my home and gave me many reasons to consider that option.  After confirming my decision to sell, Julie and her team created a terrific marketing plan that resulted in consistent showings over a short period. My place was under contract in 34 days.  Julie was great to work with and, when she was not available, her team worked diligently to provide answers to my questions. If you are looking for a realtor, I highly recommend Julie.”

“My wife and I selected Julie and her team for assistance with our recent home purchase based on her reputation. Having being through a number of home sales/purchases, we wanted someone who – above all – was knowledgeable, professional, and strong. She knows the Missoula and Rattlesnake markets like no other, has extensive contacts, and is known to be firm and fair. Julie acted as our agent in the truest sense of the word – she was an extension of us. Moving is always stressful, and we were faced with a sellers market with very little inventory. Julie kept tabs on all options, thought creatively, and even got us in for several showings before homes officially came on the market. Communication with her and her team was excellent, particularly when faced with a couple difficult situations with tight timelines. Julie’s law background showed through during the preliminary title inspection, and she worked to get two outdated exceptions removed from the record well before closing. We sincerely felt – and know – that Julie truly had our best interests in mind. Even as her experience and instincts had her handle challenging situations very well, she also never presumed too much – she regularly checked in to be sure that she was accurately representing our thoughts and interests.”

“My wife and I recently completed a real estate transaction shepherded by Julie Gardner and her team (Erin and Shawn) with ERA Lambros Real Estate. Despite the potential for a complicated and convoluted experience, the entire process couldn’t have been smoother and less worrisome. Julie’s experience, knowledge of the targeted area, and availability made for a rewarding result. Midway through our search, another better opportunity availed itself, and it was only because of Julie’s finger on the pulse of the area that we were successful in acquiring this second option. We would unconditionally recommend Julie, Erin, and Shawn for your real estate needs, and plan on using them now to sell our house.”

“Julie is a friendly and knowledgeable realtor. We had a frustrating issue come up during purchasing our home that she diligently, efficiently, and competently handled. Given her legal and negotiation background, we felt comfortable and confident with her representation of us during our real estate transaction despite the level of frustration and uncertainty that was outside her and our control. Ultimately, we closed on the deal and felt very fortunate to have Julie as our realtor.”

***

“We couldn’t have had better representation for the purchase of our new home.  Julie was thorough, thoughtful, and diligent.  She investigated issues we wouldn’t have thought to, and ensured that we got the best possible deal for our new home.  Julie’s team was always helpful, responsive, and professional.  We will definitely use Julie and her team for all our future real estate transactions!”

“Buying our first home seemed a daunting task at first. Having Julie on board made the process so much better and less stressful. From the first showing to closing, Julie’s knowledge, expertise, and genuine care was invaluable to us. We loved working with her!”

“Julie Gardner made the house-buying process a breeze. As this was our first house purchase in this country, she guided us patiently through every stage, always taking the time to make absolutely sure our questions were answered. We have every confidence in her professional judgement, and highly valued the advice she gave.  As well as their competence, we were very impressed by the dedication and responsiveness shown by Julie, and by her assistants, Emily and Lexi. The team was delightful to work with, and we would recommend them without hesitation to our friends.”

***

“My family is very grateful to Julie Gardner for her role in finding our home in Missoula. Buying a home is an intrinsically stressful and emotionally charged experience, and Julie’s knowledge, professionalism, and sense of humor made the process enjoyable. From the time we began our housing search to the day of our closing, Julie was always available to answer questions and facilitate negotiations, and she was always pleasant and enthusiastic. We couldn’t be happier with our new home, and we owe much to Julie in making this dream come true for us.”

“We started our connection with Julie and her team while we were living in Africa. Over the course of 2 years she offered her services to help us keep in touch with the local market. When we finally moved back she has a number of houses she knew would be right for us to see. She really had a feel for what we were looking for so we didn’t waste our time with a number of “not right” locations. When she wasn’t available for showings, her assistant was more then ready to jump in and help. After two months back in the USA, we were able to purchase a house that fits us beautifully. Even with some struggles with our seller’s time schedule, Julie was able to help closing happen on time. We have moved in now and have loved settling in to our new home. Thanks to Julie and her whole team.”

***

“I had the pleasure of working with Julie in the purchase of my new home. Her vast array of knowledge of Western Montana’s real estate market as well as her over ten years of experience practicing real estate law in the State of Montana made the home buying process an enjoyable, low-stress experience. Regardless of Julie’s workload, she always made me feel like I was her only client. Her attention to detail and dedication towards her client and career are unprecedented.”

“Julie Gardner is sharp, and gifted. She sold our home with ease and worked hard to find us the perfect home. She was such a pleasure to work with Julie and I recommend her with enthusiasm.”

“We have enjoyed working with Julie Gardener and her team a great deal. The lines of communication have always been open and timely and the quality of her advice has been terrific. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone interested in buying or selling and house in the Missoula area.”

“Julie Gardner understood right away the nature of my business and eased every bump in the road for me.  She is thorough, attentive, available, patient, and perceptive, qualities crucial in any real estate transaction.  I felt confident moving forward with a big decision because Julie was always clear, direct, unflappable and alert to challenges.”

***

“Julie went above and beyond anything we could have expected from a realtor and her team and it was a pleasure to work with her. They will be the first people we will recommend to anyone else who is looking to buy a house. They truly made our experience more enjoyable, much less stressful, and overall just more fun.”

***

“After having several people suggest I use Julie Gardner for my listing agent, her professional knowledge, direction and advice was invaluable. I believe these qualities were the keys to the quick sale, as we were thinking it would be a long time to sell. My home ended up being under contract in only 3 weeks from the day of listing. Never did she or staff have a negative comment about any part of our home or what we were asking for; just great advice and concern for us and our property. Julie was always prompt to respond to any question or concern I had. Her advice was to my favor that resulted into a smooth sale and closing. Her staff that works with her were also understanding and so helpful with any question I had. I highly recommend Julie and her staff to assist you with listing your property or buying a new home.”

***

“Working with Julie Gardner and her staff, while trying to find and buy a house from the east coast was a wonderful experience. In the early phases of looking, they sent me many properties to look at over the internet and as the time got closer to finally make a decision – they were there. Their friendliness and willingness to “bend over backwards” for me was incredible. Coming to Missoula and looking at homes and finally deciding on one went smoothly thanks to their efficient manner. Julie walked me through every step of a long distance closing and continued to check on the house until I was able to come across country and move in. I would recommend Julie and her staff to anyone!”

“We approached Julie with our potential recreational property believing we knew all the issues involved with such a purchase; after all, this wasn’t our first real estate purchase. We went to the property which was an hour outside of Missoula, and Julie ‘showed’ us the property. She then questioned us thoroughly to be sure she knew our property needs/desires.  At the time we didn’t understand why she was being so interrogative; we thought we had a good idea of what we wanted. Later, when she told us our dream property was substantially overpriced, we understood.  Once she KNEW we really wanted THIS property, she and her group went to work to help us purchase the property for as close to its real world value as possible.  The process required a lot of negotiation with out of state sellers. She also discovered a number of discrepancies in our property’s legal documents that had been in those documents for decades, and which required filing for revisions and clarifications with the county.  She is an attorney AND a realtor; the filings were accomplished without a hitch. She made sure that what we thought we were buying was what we actually bought. She successfully negotiated a substantial reduction the price of the property.  We made our first offer in October 2014; we closed in February 2015. She and her staff are ethical, professional and personable, responsive and responsible, knowledgeable and experienced. When we didn’t understand something, they explained the issue until we did.  When deadlines needed to be met, they made sure we met them without badgering us. We’re very happy with our new recreational property, and would recommend Julie Gardner & Company to anyone needing an expert realty group.”
