Julie Starr was instrumental in both the sale of our home and the subsequent purchase of our next home. She was responsive and took the time we needed--I never felt rushed or alone in the process. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie Starr.

"Working with Julie was a pleasure. She is friendly, down-to-earth, and incredibly responsive. We relocated to the Pioneer Valley and she made the process as smooth as possible for us.

She had a number of helpful, "insider" recommendations when we were viewing listings, negotiating, closing, and getting settled in our new home."
