Julie was so patient with us, showing us multiple condos in Kona over several years. When we finally decided we were ready, and a condo that fit our needs came up for sale, she handled everything for us while we were on the mainland. We always felt that we were in good hands, so the entire experience was extremely positive. We would definitely use Julie for any future real estate needs!
Julie was great representing me when I recently bought a house in Kona. She brought up possible concerns and made sure I was aware of any potential problems. It really wasn't an easy transaction, but Julie was diligent and professional in dealing with the curve balls we were thrown. I would certainly recommend her to anyone in the Kona real estate market.
Julie Edens is a ball of energy with almost 30 years of experience in Hawaii real estate. She knows her stuff and gets the job done! My house sold the same day it was listed. That buyer couldn't get a mortgage, but she managed to sell it again almost immediately. She carefully shepherded the deal through the entire escrow process to closing, dodging potholes all the way.
Simply the best! I will be purchasing all of my future properties with Julie! She was always making sure that everything was on the up & up. Even after the closing, she was still in touch..
We loved working with Julie! She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home. Her knowledge and and expertise are commendable, and she an asset to her profession.
Our situation wasn't the easiest and she helped us problem solve every aspect and made it a very stress free experience.
We would recommend her wholeheartedly, and she will definitely be our realtor in any future real estate transactions.
Working with Julie to find our home here on the Big Island was an awesome experience! We always felt that she wanted to find the best home for us just as much as we did! She was always concerned about the details of a home and whether or not it fit our needs. With 30 years experience living here she was the perfect realtor for us! Great job! Great outcome!
We purchased a condo for personal and rental use in Waikoloa, using Julie as our agent. This process took a few months and Julie patiently walked us through it from visiting many condos, discussing the pros/cons, helping us with the paperwork, etc. We do not live in HI, so Julie even went to the condo we ultimately bought and talked on the phone with me, describing the interior, etc. When I came to the island to look at the condo, she helped me all the way dealing with traveling, etc. She helped us get the best deal on the condo, too! She is an experienced, knowledgeable, well-spoken, friendly and kind realtor. I highly recommend her!
Julie is a joy to work with. She helped us purchase our first home back in 2012 and was here to assist us in selling our home this past March of 2018. Her hard work and expertise of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and we got a solid offer in 1-2 days! By the third day on the market, we were already under contract. Being that we have two small children and were living in the home while listing it...this was optimal, as we did not want to show the home multiple times (keeping home show ready is tricky with little ones)
She's lived in the islands for quite awhile and knows her surrounding areas and has great repertoire with fellow real estate agents to allow a smooth transaction beginning to end.
Julie is a gem. Thank you for all your service!
Julie did a wonderful job in marketing and selling my condo. She kept me updated during the whole process. Since I wasn’t on island it was really important to have someone who was on top of things and had great communication skills. Thanks for all your help.
Amazing! Just can't say enough good things about Julie. She went above and beyond to get my condo listed and sold. I would highly recommend Julie for any of your property needs. She is a true professional and a wonderful person to work with.
Julie made selling our condo easy. She was extremely professional and accommodating. We have not met in person but we want her to be part of our family now. She is positive and she was always available. She really got it done with no stress. We are super lucky to have had Julie for our agent.
Simply put, Julie Edens was absolutely key in making our dream a realty—and, she became a life-long friend in the process. We lived on Oah'u for eight years (early 1980s and mid-1990s) and when it finally came time to retire, we considered three of the Hawaiian Islands. Each has much to offer. Julie has lived on the Big Island for close to three decades and thus knows the ins and outs of this island, which we had only visited in years past. We had looked at dozens of properties on Oah'u and Maui, and before we came to Hawai'i Island, we provided her a list of properties in which we were interested, plus an excel spreadsheet outlining our requirements. Julie continued the research, provided us with detailed information on each property of interest, and coordinated with other agents for showings. The home we purchased in Kailua-Kona is a once-in-a-lifetime find. We have bought and sold property in eight states, to include Hawai'i, and the process is never easy. We flew out from the suburbs of Washington D.C., twice, six months apart, and once we made our decision, Julie took it from there. She worked diligently with the Seller's agent, kept everyone on track per the contract timeline, and was very responsive to our questions (despite the 6-hour time zone difference). Even when she had to travel to the mainland, she found a way to continue to work our contract to ensure nothing fell through the crack. She coordinated with our lender when needed, for home and termite/pest inspections, and because our property is "off-the-grid," she met with other inspectors to help ensure utilities were functional. She also provided video clips of two utility contractors so we could hear their feedback first hand. Julie went above and beyond any realtor with whom we have dealt before, representing us from afar, meeting these inspectors, and keeping us informed. After we moved in, she even provided bedding and cooking/eating utensils until our household goods arrived. I know it wasn't easy at times, but she—and her colleagues with Hawai'i Life—were with us from the beginning to the end. Mahalo Nui Loa!
Julie was extremely helpful in helping me choose the right property for our relocation. I had a difficult time in narrowing my search and she had the expertise in steering me in the right direction taking into consideration our wants and needs. Mahalo nui loa to Julie.
Julie worked with us for almost a year before we were able to find what we needed to support our move to the Island of Hawaii. She proved support after purchase since we were not able to move from Seattle until months later. She goes beyond just the purchase of the condo, house, etc.
Buying a home when you're 3000 miles away is stressful and full of unknowns. Luckily, Julie was there to make the process relatively easy. From offering suggestions to helping perform the final walk-thru of our new Hawaiian home, Julie performed far above any real estate agent we have worked with. Julie provided honest and quick responses when we asked for her opinion (which was probably more often than she might have liked) or needed help in putting together offers for possible purchase, or asking the selling agent "you want how much for 'breeze'?" Even after the purchase was complete, Julie followed up and wanted to ensure we were satisfied with the home - she even helped by loaning us her inflatable mattress while we waited for furniture to arrive.
I know that if we ever decide to sell our Hawaiian home (or look to 'upgrade') in the future, our first call will be to Julie!
Julie was referred to me by a friend who claimed was was a super real estate lady and had excellent knowledge of the Hawaii and Kona area. Well I soon found out just how true that was as Julie took me to several excellent properties and in doing so demonstrated her knowledge, experience and skills. And on top of that she is an excellent person and easy to get along with.
After many years of vacationing is Hawaii we decided it was time to move to our dream house. We had already been here almost 2 weeks with no luck finding what we were looking for. On Thursday we saw an ad in a magazine that had a nice home in it and Julie was the listing agent. We contacted her right away and she informed us that particular house had already been sold. She asked what we were looking for in our dream house and then proceeded to do a search. By that evening we had no less that 5 listing emailed to us. We looked them over and contacted Julie the first thing Friday morning. We found our dream home!!! She made an appointment for us to view the house at 11:30 AM on Friday. By 12:30 we were in her office writing us the offer. After negotiating with the sellers we signed the contract and were on our way. Julie was awesome with everything. She is highly recommended.
Julie has been my representative on multiple real estate transactions.
She has represented me both as a buyer and a seller. In each case she has been
very caring and very professional and in each case the results have been exactly as I hoped. Buying or selling I highly recommend Julie Edens as a knowledgeable, performance driven real estate agent.
What were we looking for in a real estate agent? Someone who would listen to our requests, not pressure us with their agenda, be sensitive to our personalities and have expertise on the Big Island. We got all that and more! Julie suggested areas in our price range for us to explore on our own and get a feel for where we wanted to live. This saved us a lot of time. When we did decide on an area, Julie helped us find the perfect house and negotiate a good price. Not only were we able to buy a home that makes us happy every day, but we made a friend for life!
Julie not only found us our new home, but sold the home we were living in.
We weren't even going to look at the house we ended up buying, but upon her insistence we looked and to our surprise loved it and made an offer!
Our former home sold quickly and easily.
I would highly recommend Julie Edens for all of your real estate needs on the Island of Hawaii. I met Julie in 2006 when I was searching for a home to buy on the Big Island. Although i had already retained another Agent prior to meeting Julie, she insisted on continuing to guide me with her knowledge and advice throughout the process. She saved me thousands of dollars on the purchase of my home even though she was not involved directly as an Agent in the sale.
Fast forward to 2013 when i called Julie to help me with the sale and listing of that same home. We knew the sale was going to be a challenging one, but Julie did not hesitate to get involved. We are within weeks now of closing, and Julie has been tremendous during the whole process.
If you are considering buying or selling property on the Big Island of Hawaii, I would recommend calling Julie for her knowledge, expertise, and Aloha spirit.
We were planning to purchase a home/condo on the Big Island. Julie spent days helping us learn about the different neighbourhoods and properties, so that we could determine what we were looking for.
We are Canadians, and were unsure of the entire purchase process here in Hawaii. When we decided to purchase, Julie helped us through it. Even though we had to return to Canada before the paperwork was complete, we were able to finish everything on line with no problems or surprises.
Her local knowledge was valuable to us as newcomers, and even though our purchase was over two years ago, we are still in contact with Julie. We always feel we can call her if we need local advice, info on contractors, etc. Shehas been a valuable resource.
We would not hesitate to recommend Julie, and, in fact have already recommended her to several of our friends.
Julie Edens sold me the lot I built my home on and has assisted several referrals I have sent here. I am a professional Real Estate Appraiser - so I am likely not the easiest client to work with. Julie has sold referrals everything from luxury homes in Hualalai Resort to leasehold coffee farms in Kealakekua. She has never once led one of those referrals wrong, or made a mistake in the sales process. She is attentive to even the most demanding clients needs. She is smart and knows how to get the best deal for her customer. On my own lot purchase, she made the entire process so easy, I never noticed how much paper work was trading hands. She took care of everything. I would recommend her to anyone.
My husband and I were interested in purchasing a lot in a specific neighborhood, with the intent of building on it in the future. Julie provided us with a list of all property available, and included the information on a house she thought we should consider. Even though the house was 100 miles away from her, she got us in that weekend to look at it. It was perfect for us, and in spite of multiple offers, Julie's expertise got us the contract. We have been proud owners of that house for 11 years now.
A few years ago when I had the responsibility of selling a house that was part of a friend's estate, I did not hesitate to choose Julie as our agent. In a falling market her advice and dedication got us a buyer in time for him to qualify for a tax credit, allowing him to pay more for the house than we would have gotten if the sale had taken place even a month later.
I do not hesitate to recommend Julie Edens. She works hard to get the result you want, and is a positive presence throughout the process.
Energetic, honest, thorough.... good communication and follow-up. What more can I say? I would definitely use Julie again, and highly recommend her to anyone either buying or selling a home in West Hawaii.
