    I have worked with a few real estate agents in the past and I can’t stop raving on how happy I have been in working with Julie Lai. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly extremely patient. As a first home buyer, I really appreciate that Julie was able to hold my hand every step of the way. There are a lot of things to know and worry about when buying a home. However, Julie always took the time to go over in details on the process and was patient to make sure I was comfortable on moving forward with the next step. She always gave wise recommendations and that was very important in giving me a peace of mind that I am in good hands when working with her. She also has over 10 years of lending background. So she also worked closely with my lender to make sure the loan process was a smooth process. Julie made the home buying process seamless and hassle free. She is a problem solver. When there is a problem, she will have some solutions. I am very thankful in working with her and I highly recommend working with her. I will refer everyone I know who needs help in either selling or buying a home.

    As a first time home buyer, my experience with Julie was wonderful. I worked with two other agents before we met. She took the time to get to know me and what it was I was looking for in a home. Her experience previously working as a banker as well as a real estate agent helped me understand the inner workings of the loan process as well as home buying process. Overall, a wonderful experience.

    Julie did an amazing job finding our home. she was available when we needed her. As second time buyers we were picky on who would represent us and we made the great choice. We found our home in only three months it was a smooth transition.

    Julie did the most amazing job with finding a home with us. Her services were the most positive out of any realtor I have met with before. Would definitely use her services again.

    Julie Lai is absolutely the best!!! Receiving her call the day of my birthday confirming that I’ve got the house of my dreams was the best gift anyone could have ever given me!
    She didn’t just help me to find a house, but the place that I am proud to call home. I am a very insecure person by nature, but with her guidance and knowledge she made me feel always confident about the whole process. I had a lot of questions, and she always had the right answers for me, she really understood me and the needs I had for the place I was looking for from the very beginning.
    She is thorough and professional and great to work with. It’s like having a friend on the inside that is working for you. Julie is extremely helpful, honest, upfront, open, transparent, and reliable, she really cares about her clients.
    I’ve had the best of experiences since I got to meet her and will always appreciate her hard work and dedication, she is very professional, and you will never find anyone better than her!! She will make sure you get the best deal possible!
    I am so very glad and lucky that I found you and was able to work with you Julie, I really wish the best for you. From the bottom of my heart thank you very much for helping me find my dream home and for being so amazing!

    I am really glad to have found Julie whose expertise and knowledge greatly simplified the process of purchasing this condo. She provided exceptional service and even went an extra mile to help me find contractors and quotes for repair work. Definitely keeping her contact information for future real estate transactions!

    I highly recommend working with Julie Lai for all of your real estate goals. I know many real estate agents and she stands out from the rest. I am very fortunate Julie presented me in my purchase. Since I have worked with a few agents in the past, I have an idea what to expect during the escrow process. I was very impressed with my entire experience from the beginning to the very end. Julie Lai is very professional, detailed oriented, knowledgeable, and the most importance is her patience. I am very detailed oriented and expect a result in a timely manner. I really appreciate that Julie was able to hold my hand every step of the way and also get back to me all throughout the day and even in the middle of the night. The house had a lot of issues, and we weren’t sure who we should contact. However, Julie always took the time to find the right contractors and even help us negotiate on a better quote. As far as the paperwork, she explained in detail on the process, and what to expect next. Her hand holding made me felt more comfortable that I was in good hands. Julie is a problem solver and always gave wise recommendations when there were issues. Julie made the home buying process seamless and hassle free. I am genuinely happy to have found her and can’t thank her enough for her 5 star customer experience. I highly recommend working with her and will refer everyone I know who needs help in either selling or buying a home.

    As a first-time home buyer, it was very stressful and overwhelming buying my first home. I was never sure what to do or who to ask for help. However, after meeting Julie Lai for the first time, I immediately knew I was in good hands. I was very impressed in working with Julie as my real estate agent during the entire home buying process. I highly recommend working with Julie Lai for all your real estate goals. Julie was very professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly very proactive. I was very impressed with my entire experience from the beginning to the very end. Julie worked closely with my lender, escrow, title, 3rd party vendors, home inspector, home appraiser, and even directly with the seller. When I had issues, Julie was a problem solver and always provided a solution to every issue. I was so close to fall out of escrow, but Julie found a solution and was able to negotiate another 30 days to close my escrow. Julie made the home buying process seamless and hassle free. I can’t be more thankful for all of Julie’s help in helping me feel at ease and confident I am in good hands. I plan to recommend all my friends and friends if they need a good real estate agent to help them with any real estate needs.

    I had an excellent experience working with Julie Lai as my real estate agent in buying my second home. I like to keep things simple, smooth, and straight to the point. I don’t like stress and I already know the process and what to expect when buying a home. I was very impressed at how efficient and organized Julie was during the entire escrow process. Julie was very proactive to steer on what we need to do next. She was always on top of everything and provided quick updates as soon as they became available. Yes there was some stress along the way. However, Julie was able to calm me down and helped me find solutions. Julie made the home buying process seamless and hassle free. I know the only reason why it was smooth escrow was because Julie was there every step of the way. I am very thankful for all of Julie’s knowledge and expertise in helping me feel at ease and confident I am in good hands. Since buying a house was so smooth, I plan to have Julie help me sell my home. Thank you Julie for everything!

    It’s very pleasant to work with Julie Lai on house purchase. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly extremely patient. As a first time homebuyer, we have very limited understanding about purchasing a home. Julie is very knowledgeable and patient to explain everything into details, and provides professional advice and reminders for us. Highly recommended everyone who has a plan to purchase a house to cooperate with Julie Lai.

    Julie IS one of the best realtors that I’ve worked with. As a lender, I couldn’t have asked for a better business partner. She’s very transparent with her clients and me. We are always communicating and strategizing on how to get the best deal possible for our clients. She’s also very professional with her clients. Julie is also a very caring person, she’s there for her clients very step of the way, guiding them and holding her clients by their hands through the process.

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Julie Lai who exceeded all my expectations. From start to finish, Julie’s professionalism, experience, expertise, patience, and knowledge shone through, making my home buying experience truly remarkable.

    First and foremost, her professionalism was apparent from my very first interaction. She was prompt, courteous, and displayed a genuine commitment to understanding my needs and preferences. Her attention to detail and organization ensured that no stone was left unturned during the entire process.

    Julie’s extensive experience in the real estate industry was evident at every step. She had a deep understanding of the local market trends, pricing strategies, and negotiation techniques. She knew how to effectively market properties and present them in the best light possible. Her expertise truly set them apart, as she provided invaluable guidance and made sound recommendations, ensuring that I made well-informed decisions. Her ability to assess property values accurately and negotiate effectively on my behalf was truly impressive.

    One of the standout qualities of Julie was her exceptional patience. She recognized that buying a home is a significant life decision and that it takes time to find the perfect fit. Julie listened attentively to my concerns, answered all my questions patiently, and never pressured me into making hasty choices. Julie was always there to offer support and guidance, making me feel confident throughout the entire process.

    In conclusion, I cannot recommend Julie Lai highly enough. Her professionalism, experience, expertise, patience, and knowledge made my home buying journey an absolute pleasure. Julie went above and beyond to ensure that all my needs were met, and her dedication to customer satisfaction was truly exceptional. If you are looking for a top-notch real estate agent who will go the extra mile for you, look no further!

    Working with Julie was an answer to prayers. As a first time home buyer I felt so lost on where to start, and she took time to explain every step in a way that was so easy to understand. She worked hard to make sure we were putting an offer on a table that was attractive while maintaining our budget. She always arranged for private showings right away and we were often first to view a new home on the market. If we weren’t at a showing she was writing offers, getting in touch with sellers, and researching upcoming homes. (I don’t know if she even slept while working with us!) We we’re always kept in the know as she continually followed up with every house we were interested. I highly recommend Julie to anyone! She simply is the best.

    Moving from Taiwan to the US was initially very overwhelming. The real estate market was quite different from Taiwan and US, so there were a lot of uncertainties about the home buying process that I didn’t understand. However, working with Julie Lai as our real estate agent made the entire home buying process simple and quick. From the moment I met Julie, her professionalism, dedication, and warm personality put me at ease. Julie’s deep knowledge of the local real estate market was truly impressive. She took the time to understand my preferences and needs, ensuring that the homes she showed were not only beautiful but also aligned with my lifestyle and priorities.

    What really stood out was Julie’s commitment and patience to making me feel comfortable and informed every step of the way. There was a lot of information that I didn’t understand. However, Julie was very patient and was always available to answer my questions promptly. Her clear explanations of the US home buying process helped me navigate with ease, confidence, less hassle, and peace of mind.

    The real estate market was also very competitive. We also tried a few times in submitting offers and it was difficult getting into escrow. However, Julie’s negotiation skills were remarkable, ensuring that I got the best value for my forever home and most importantly successful in getting into escrow. Julie was quick to negotiable a strong offer in order to get into escrow within 2 days from when the home was listed on market to prevent other buyers from competing on the same home.

    In the end, I was so happy and can’t believe I am finally settled in my forever retirement home. Her multicultural background and understanding of my transition from Taiwan made her not just a realtor, but also a friend who genuinely cared about our well-being and happiness. If you’re moving to the US and need someone who will guide you through the home buying process seamlessly, I highly recommend Julie Lai. Thank you, Julie, for making our dream of a new forever home a reality!

    We thoroughly enjoyed working with Julie. She was very organized and knowledgeable and was able to walk us through the entire process of buying a home. She went above and beyond for us to see any and every house we showed interest in, and would quickly contact sellers on our behalf. She did not pressure us to outbid other buyers. She wanted us to be comfortable in our offers and worked to make sure our offer stood out among the many others. She genuinely cares for her clients and is very personable. She has reached out even after the sell to offer additional services along with getting us in touch with every contact we needed. I would recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you Julie!

    Julie Lai is an outstanding Zillow agent who made my first-time home buying experience exceptional. It was hard to find the perfect home and the market was very competitive.  However, Julie found an off market home and was able to negotiate a best deal for me.  Her patience, expert negotiation skills, and commitment to guiding me from start to finish were beyond impressive. Julie’s attention to detail and genuine passion for helping clients resulted in a smooth, stress-free process. I’m now happily settled in my dream home, all thanks to Julie’s expertise. Five stars don’t do justice to her excellence in real estate. Thank you, Julie!

    As a first-time homebuyer in need of guidance through the escrow process, I can’t speak highly enough of Julie Lai as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, patience, and problem-solving skills were a lifeline for me successfully close escrow. We were very close in falling out of escrow on our dream home because we had issues with our loan.  However, Julie Lai, helped saved the escrow by working hard with a new lender who expertly navigated me through each step, making the entire experience seamless and a successful escrow even during the holidays. Her support guidance was invaluable, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to fellow first-time buyers. I can now sleep better at night now in my new home.  I can’t thank Julie Lai for all of her hard work and efforts in making all the miracles happen in helping us close escrow.

We recommend Julie Lai to everyone; it is very comfortable to interact with her and rest assured that you will find exactly what you need!

    I had the pleasure of working with Julie Lai, and I couldn’t be more pleased. As a first-time home buyer, Julie’s patience and negotiation skills were invaluable. The market was very competitive and it was hard to find a home within my budget and my liking. What truly impressed me was her ability to find an off-market home that perfectly suited my needs and was able to negotiate the best deal for me. Julie’s commitment to guiding me through the entire process and her genuine passion for helping clients make her an exceptional agent. Thanks to Julie, I am now happily settled in a home that exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend her services!

    Julie’s service was exceptional throughout our endeavor to locate our target condo in the Whittier area. We wound up with what we wanted for our needs and we are extremely pleased that it all went smoothly!

    Julie Lai responded to my online Zillow request to tour a condo I saw online. We’re from NorCal and we’re looking for an investment property in SoCal that my son could also use while going to grad school. Julie responded quickly and arranged for us to tour other condos that met our criteria as well. Over six weeks, we toured quite a few units in person and over FaceTime. We made offers on some, but were outbid. We finally were successful with one that met 95% of what we wanted. Julie was great in negotiating and communicating. She made sure our needs were addressed and kept us informed throughout the process. We have purchased several properties and have dealt with many realtors. Julie is one of the best. She’s honest, efficient, organized, patient, and not afraid to negotiate on your behalf. She really wants to find you the best house that fits your needs and not just one that will get her the highest commission. I will definitely hire Julie again.

    Julie did a great job helping me to find a condo.

    She knew a lot about the San Gabriel Valley area and was very responsive in terms of getting quick showings when properties came up on MLS. Julie also happened to have worked with the selling agent for the property I wanted, was able to find out how much I should offer, and even advised me on the best timing.

    Julie was also a great agent in terms of helping me as a first time home buyer. She walked me through a lot of the stuff I needed to know and set me up with financing so I could have an offer that was as good as cash. This helped me to get my offer accepted even though it was another offer that was a bit higher.

    Also, Julie was able to introduce me to a few of my new neighbors who came out during my final walkthrough since she speaks Mandarin. By closing, other neighbors seemed to know who I was after talking amongst themselves.
