Print Agent Bio

I believe in working hard for my clients and earning their business everyday. My real estate philosophy is simple, "treat people the way I would want to be treated if I were buying or selling my own home." Selling, buying, moving.... on top of work, family, and all the other things going on in our busy lives can be very stressful. When I entered real estate one of my goals was to take the burden off my clients and walk them through the process of buying and selling as smoothly as possible. Smooth takes planning, and I'm a planner. In this market you have to plan. I communicate a lot to my clients and they know they can count on me to take them step by step from the beginning stages of their move, all the way through the end of their transaction. I understand the market, I listen to my clients needs and goals, we sell the house, we buy the house, or we do both, and we do a lot of work in between! At the end of the day knowing you've helped someone find their dream home, or move on from one, and onto something new, is incredibly rewarding. 

My adventure in putting together the steps to relocate from Minneapolis, Minnesota to Portland, Oregon started with a trip to Portland to search for a new residence in the greater Portland area the last couple of weeks in May, 2017, and concluded with the Memorial Day weekend. I was introduced to Julie through my daughter (a detective with a local police department) who at the time was assisted by Julie in building and purchasing a new residence. Thank goodness for Julie’s in-depth knowledge of the greater Portland real estate market, as she was able to tactfully suggest a couple of areas and property developers / builders that were constructing new residences that satisfied my geographic needs as well as terrific floor plan selections / options to meet my specific living needs. I’m especially grateful for Julie’s geographic suggestion and thoughtfulness as I came very close to selecting an area that would have been far inferior to where I ended up! In addition to Julie’s guidance in selecting the right area and housing development, she was pivotal in channeling my offer in negotiating the purchase price along with extras that were subsequently included with the final purchase price. Equally important, Julie was instrumental in coordinating so many other facets that go along with the purchase of a new residence for an absentee future homeowner living in Minnesota. My new townhouse was set to be completed the 3rd week in October, 2017, so a lot of issues needed to be managed in my absence via long distance. To this point, Julie was very razor-sharp and on top of several key issues. Julie Tran’s professionalism and interpersonal skills in interfacing with the many disciplines that one encounters with a new residence purchase process led to a totally satisfactory relocation from Minnesota to my new Oregon residence.

When my husband and I decided that it was time for us to list our house and look for a new home we met with Julie to discuss all the details. Our first home buying experience (with another Realtor) was abnormally awful and we were very hesitant to go through the stress of all of it again. During our first meeting Julie was very organized. She showed up with a folder full of valuable information for us and we discussed what we wanted to do and how we wanted to coordinate the selling of our current home with the buying of a new home. Julie had great suggestions for us as we got our home ready to list, ensuring that it would show well and result in getting immediate offers. Once our home listed, everything played out exactly how Julie had planned. Offers started coming in immediately and we ended up with several strong offers to choose from. We knew we wanted to coordinate the selling of our current home with the purchase of a new home as close to one another as possible, trying to avoid an extra move. As soon as our current home went pending Julie and I hit the ground running in an effort to find a new home that met our needs. Julie was consistently available to show us homes and answer our questions during this time. We ended up finding an amazing home in the area that we wanted. There were challenges that came up during the selling transaction of our home but Julie worked extremely hard, communicated with us constantly and maintained effective communication with the buyers Realtor resulting in a successful transaction. We could not have been more pleased with the way that Julie handled everything from start to finish. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy and can confidently say that she is knowledgeable, ethical and honest. As much as I dreaded the who process of selling of buying, we are so thankful that we did it and so thankful that we had Julie by our side.

Julie Tran is the most wonderful person to work with. She will bend over backward to find just what you need and does it all with the utmost integrity and grace. Her honest opinion is always delivered with kindness. She is a very knowledgeable realtor who knows just how to work with the current market ups and downs and we feel very blessed to have found her. If we ever move again ( which I hope we don't) , we would definitely use her again. She has become a dear friend. Thanks Julie! You are the best!!

"I thought I just needed any agent to show me a few fixeruppers and then I'd buy one. Well, I'm glad Zillow didn't assign me just any agent. Julie is the best! She was very knowledgeable, responsive, and tireless in showing me several properties. She wrote up an offer for me on one that was accepted, and she was there when the inspector pointed out the many problems I hadn't seen. I thought maybe owning a home wasn't meant to be, but Julie had gotten to know my family and suggested some newer homes that she thought might suit us. Fast forward a few months and we're moving into our brand new home that we all love. Thanks Julie!"

"To put it simply, Julie made buying a house a breeze. She was always easy to ask questions to, quick to respond and was constantly helpful during the whole process. She would always stay honest with me which I really appreciated and really helped keep my stress levels down due to my lack of knowledge. This was my first home purchase and I was extremely worried about how stressful the process would be and how I would probably miss something. Julie continually amazed me with letting me know about what I needed to do way before it was needed during the buying process.

If you are ever unsure about an agent and you're buying your first house, I highly recommend Julie as she will make it so easy. Even after the purchase, she has been a great resource for any questions I've had about the house and setting things up.

All I can say is THANK YOU JULIE!"

"I wish I could give Julie more than 5 stars! I was lucky enough to find Julie by chance and I am so thankful that I did. Julie helped my family every step of the way. We relocated, so the process has taken a long time. Julie kept in contact with me to discuss our plans and guide me in the right direction long before we moved here. She is so much more than my realtor! We know we can trust her and she has helped guide us through this long process. Julie's patience and understanding have made us so grateful to her. After deciding on a house, she encouraged me to see a few more just to be 100% sure. On the very last house, I walked in and I knew it was the one. She found us our dream home! We couldn't be more thankful for all of her hard work and dedication to us. I could go on and on, but Julie is the absolute best."

"Julie's brother, was referred to me by my sister and brother-in-law in August of 2015. Her brother was busy with a new born baby, so I began discussing with Julie the possibility of selling my mother's home.
We meet at my mother's home, she was immediately excited about the house, the 1956 vintage and respectful of the memories of the family home.
Julie is extremely responsive, after discussing the possibilities of having her sell the home, she provided comparative properties that had sold, allowed me to discuss a sell price. Once the sell price was determined, she immediately when into action photographing the home, setting up the open house and giving me advise on things to do. She generated 30-40 people during the first open house weekend by advertising through various methods. This resulted in two great offers at our listed price. Unfortunately, the buyer we selected failed on the sale, however, this did not stop Julie, she went right back at it.
Through her efforts to show the home to more people, she was able to determine a few physical adjustments to help it sell. She has a network of reasonable priced companies that help to a few different tasks. She did all the calling, getting more than one quote on most of the work, this led to two new offers.
We closed the sale for the original sales price in December 2015.
Julie earned "my favorite all time realtor" award.
Julie will sell your home!"

"We highly recommend Julie Tran whether you are buying or selling a house. She helped us find a new home and sell our old one in record time. She is very professional and will help you with every step of the process. She clearly stood out from other brokers we interacted with in that you could tell she was really listening to your interests and concerns and not just trying to push a certain property or make a quick sell
Buying and selling property is very stressful but Julie always found a way to ease our concerns. She has a great personality, always cheerful and friendly while respectful and professional.

Julie first helped us find a new home in Tigard. After spending over two hours with us on a Sunday when we first met, she clearly understood exactly what we were looking for. It took literally one day for her to find the house we eventually bought. We had seen it online but the photos did not do it justice so we did not put it on our short list or even mentioned it to her. She took a look in person herself and called us right away. When we walked in, it immediately felt right. We were a bit hesitant to jump into the first house she suggested, so we did go to see many more homes after that one. Julie was always able to find other homes in Tigard that would be a good fit. After one week we signed the contract. During the month long process till closing she would always help communicating with our loan officer to make sure everything was on track and with the various inspectors that would check things over. She is quite savvy with technology and handled all the electronic documentation efficiently. The whole process went very smoothly.

As soon as we closed we started the process of selling our old house, also in Tigard. She researched the area carefully for comparable homes to help us set a good price. She was very thorough and meticulous in this process. She proposed to list it at several tens of thousands of dollars more than we thought it was worth. Well, she was spot on, because the house sold two days after listing and right after the one and only open house. And for the full price!
She brought an expert photographer that made our house stand out in the online listings. During the process, Julie also helped find contractors for some of the minor things that the buyer wanted fixed (there is always something). She works with a loyal group of contractors who are able to come and fix things on short notice, which is crucial when you want to make sure that closing happens on time.

As we said, we strongly recommend Julie Tran. She has expert knowledge of the local market, is friendly and professional, and will make your house buying and selling experience enjoyable."
