Julio & Donna Thanks again for your amazing support during the process. We really should say "la tercera es la vencida" (third time's charm) !! : ) You guys are the best!! It has been a pleasure working with you and we hope to see you soon in Calgary for a visit! - Ana
We recently sold our home through Julio and have purchased homes in Fort McMurray through him in 2007 & 2010. He was referred to us by some friends when we first came to Canada in 2007 and having absolutely no understanding of how the home purchase process worked here in Canada. Julio walked us through each step of the process and took a huge amount of stress out of it for us. Julio has always been honest, thorough & hard working, making the process much easier. Julio is not just a great Realtor but a great person as well and as such the relationship evolved a friendship as well. - Clint & Nicki Black
The process was pleasant - Joel Billingsley
We bought our first home after being referred by a friend who also purchased with Julio. He offered great help and service, and was always there when we needed him. Julio was very helpful on showing us what we could get for our price range, gave advice that meant a lot to us and helped influence our purchasing choice, which definitely led to the home we wanted. Delaing with Julio is simple, straight forward and a pleasure. I would definitely recommend Julio and Donna to anyone I know looking to buy or sell a home. The process was pleasant and they walked us through every step with minimal stress.
Truly a Great One! - Craig & Lori
Julio, this experience with you was truly a great one! In today's fast pace world, seldom does everything come together as good as it did with you! You sold our property in two weeks! What more could we ask. Both yourself and Donna were very professional. All our questions and concerns were answered promptly. Thank you again !
Thank You! - Tim and Nata
Julio, Thank you so much for making our Fort Mac move truly enjoyable. You have been a joy to spend time with. Many Thanks!
Thanks for Everything - Phil & Sherri
Thank you so much for all your help in finding us a new house and then all your help in selling ours.
Stress-Free - Y. Gomez
I bought in 2009 and sold in 2013 with Julio after he was recommended by a friend. Julio is very dedicated, always available and seeks what is best for his clients before himself. Using Julio was smooth and stress free
Excellent Knowledge of the Fort McMurray Market - Jeff & Jackie McKay
We had the opportunity to sell our home with Julio in June of 2013. We were referred to Julio through family and chose him because he was professional and sincere. We were very impressed with Julio's attention to detail and his follow up was always prompt and courteous. His knowledge of the Fort McMurray real estate market is excellent. Our home sold in 5 days! While the whole real estate process can be rather daunting, Julio helped remove the stress and made the whole process smooth and easy. We especially appreciated him arranging the cleaning of our home once we had vacated... a very nice touch indeed! Julio is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. He offered very useful advice for all stages of our home sale process. He was always there to answer our questions and provide the support and guidance that we needed. We had used other realtors in the past and never had the same kind of attention or professionalism. We would highly recommend Julio Florez to anyone looking to buy or sell their property in Fort McMurray.
Comfortable & Easy - Trevor
Julio was recommended by people with the local banking services. Julio and Donna went out of their way to help me through the selling process since I was out of province during the entire transaction. The process was comfortable and easy. Julio knows the market and the process and made sure I was as informed as he was at each step. Thanks Julio and Donna!
An Awesome Experience - W. Compagnon
I sold with Julio after a friend of mine referred him. Both Julio and Donna are professional with great work ethics. From the time Julio first walked into my house until they completed the deal, I always felt that they cared about my situation. They called or texted every day to update me on anything to do with the sale of my house and they always kept me informed. I have bought and sold 3 homes in Fort McMurray and I have to say this was an awesome experience. Before I met Julio I had my house on the market for almost 5 months with limited viewings and no offers. I called my friend and she referred Julio. When I spoke to Julio the first time I found his knowledge of the housing market and what was going on in Fort McMurray was excellent. He put up the sign the following day and I had an offer within 3 weeks. And with the current situation in the city I was more than happy with that offer. Julio and Donna took care of everything after the offer was made (from the home inspection to the lawyer to the house cleaning and repairs after the inspection). I was at work through most of the process and all I had to do was make an appointment with the lawyer to sign the paperwork to complete the sale. I have spoken to many people about Julio and Donna's efforts to sell my home and I am sure a few of them will be contacting Julio.
Would Recommend to Others - S. Shultz
We sold our house through Julio since our friends recommended him. Julio gave us much appreciated advice on renovations and staging the house (both what we should and should not invest in). We particularly liked the professionalism of Julio and Donna. We always felt they had our best interests at heart. In the stressful time of moving, it was so helpful to have them working for us. We have recommended Julio and his team to coworkers and friends and have no hesitation in providing this testimonial.
Great Experience - Lorie & George Lane
Julio, I just wanted to let you know how thankful both George and I are for your services! You were so great and patient and then passing us on to Ryan was also just as great!
I'm sure I don't need to tell you how great Ryan is and I'm sure you hear this a lot! He was so amazing! At our beck and call whenever we needed and we could always count on him to answer our calls and texts and so quick to set up showings for us. I can't express how great he has been.
You both have made this process of buying our first home an amazing and enjoyable one so thank you so much.
Highly Satisfied - Mauro Godoy
I sold my home with Julio. He was my Realtor 8 years ago and I was highly satisfied with his service. Despite the fact that I was not in Canada, he did everything to complete the selling smoothly and he is a good negotiator.
Awesome to Work With - O'Neil Family
We sold our home and purchased a new one with Julio after a friend of mine had sold her home with Julio and had a great experience with his business. Julio was always very friendly to our whole family, extremely professional in his work and his advice. Julio didn't always tell us what we wanted to hear, however he always gave us an honest answer which made the home selling and buying process more comforting. The fact that Julio takes care of cleaning the home you are selling made for one less thing that we had to organize and took some of the pressure off of us as we were taking this big step in our lives. We were very impressed with Julio right from his first visit. I believe the advice Julio gave us in listing our home made for a quick sale. The pictures and the listing were very professional and I felt our listing was done in a way that optimized the good qualities our home had to offer to another family. In comparing our listing to other homes listed by other brokers, I felt that the information and quality of photos was far superior. During the buying/selling process we had constant communication with Julio and Donna, and they really cared that we purchased a home that would work for us in the long term, ensuring we weighed out the pros and cons of each listing we were considering. We never felt pressured into making a quick decision. Julio's team is awesome to work with; we have recommended them to friends and will continue to recommend their services to people buying and selling their home.
Wonderful and Professional - June and Stuart Peebles
Julio, both of us would like to say Thank You and tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on the sale of our home. We can't tell you how much we appreciated every detail, from start to finish, that you provided to make the sale go as smooth as possible. Again Thank You for the wonderful and professional job that you provided us with. Sincerely
Level of Service - Kendra and Bruce
Julio's level of service is second to none. When listing our condo, Julio Florez of Royal LePage was an obvious choice. I was familiar with his care and concern for clients whether buying or selling through my work as a mortgage specialist with RBC. From the moment I made the phone call to ask Julio to list our condo, he made sure we were kept informed of every necessary detail. We were confident that even in this slower market time in Fort McMurray he would work for us in selling our condo to the very best of his ability. We were very happy when he sold our condo much sooner than we were expecting. He gave us expert advice whenever we needed it based on his experience with the marketplace. Julio was very professional and ensured our sale was completed seamlessly from start to finish. Thank you Julio for your excellent service!
You Were Fantastic!
I speak of you all the time and how wonderful you were and still are to us. As our realtor, we could not have been happier with you! You were fantastic! You were so professional yet we felt like we had known you for years. Your expertise of the housing market, the area of Fort McMurray and all the ins and outs of purchasing a house was unsurpassed, Julio! You were thorough and thought of things we never would have! Not once did we feel pressured as we searched for our perfect home, you were patient, caring and understanding and really took into consideration and listened when we expressed what we were looking for. You made yourself available to us and we never felt like we were being overlooked or left to wait for answers if we had questions. You left a huge impression on us and we miss seeing your smiling face!!! And the beautiful housewarming present that you gifted us with, was not necessary, but so thoughtful and looks awesome! As well, the tickets you provided us with for the Summer’s End carnival, were greatly appreciated and you made our son Blake so happy!! They were put to good use by all of us. Most realtors would not take the time to give clients an afterthought once the sale is processed, but you did! You helped to make our transition and house purchase so much less stressful and for that Mike and I hold you in the highest regard! It is our pleasure to be able to provide this feedback and believe me, we spread the word about your services! Royal LePage is lucky to have you as part of their team! Take care, and once again Thank-You for being so wonderful to us....
- Denise, Mike & Blake
Pleasant Experience - Sarah, Allan and Kate Scott
Dear Julio, Thank you so much for all your help. You have definitively help make our move to Fort McMurray a pleasant experience.
First Time Buyers - Rob Berger & Jenna LaGrange
We began our house hunting in April 2014, and had searched for a reliable and hardworking real estate agent. After quite some time researching and listening to our friends, we decided to buy with Julio. We relied on word of mouth and Google research, and after meeting Julio we knew we wanted him to represent us. And we couldn't have made a better choice! Julio and Donna have been by our sides since day one, answering multiple questions each and every day. Being first time home buyers, they made the process easy and made us feel very comfortable. We always asked the silliest questions and they responded fully and accurately. They made our house purchase go smooth and they took care of everything, making it easier for us. We could not have recommended a better team. From house hunting, through offers to purchase, right through the home inspection, they made sure one of them were around to help us through and be there with us. They helped us ask the right questions and were very informative. We are truly grateful for everything Julio and Donna have done for us to help us purchase our home. We will definitely be using them again in the future!
Thank you - Ed & Annette
Thank you Julio for helping us out. We thank you for such instant results. Thank you for such ease in the transaction, so informative, so polite. We truly appreciate and truly look forward to working with you once again in the near future.
What A Pleasure - Cam & Liz Monk
We bought our home with Julio after he was referred to us by our landlord. What stood out to us was his honesty, integrity and that he genuinely cared about our happiness and success. Julio was fantastic throughout the entire process from initial meeting to signing the deal. He had excellent advice and had the clarity to see what it was that we were looking for. Both Julio and Donna made sure that the entire process was seamless, that all timelines and requests were met with no problems at all. Both Liz and I can say that we felt that the service we received was 5 star quality. Both Liz and I would gladly recommend Julio as a Realtor, whether you are buying or selling. You would be hard pressed to find someone that cares as much as Julio, it's more than a job or business with him, it's a passion.
I did not feel like just a number - Amanda Stuart & Tom Tse
We bought with Julio because of his service and reputation. Julio and Donna were on-point, organized, and when we had questions they were answered promptly and professionally. I did not feel like just a number, which made me feel relaxed. Donna made me feel like she was there to protect me. The process from beginning to end was professional. Working them both was a pleasure and stress-free.
We Were in Good Hands - The Smith Family
We recently sold our house with Julio. We chose him as we had a long relationship with him and trusted his professionalism. We were so impressed with the advice on preparing our home for sale and for the way it was photographed and marketed. It was good to know we were in good hands despite the turbulent market in Fort McMurray.
Fast, Easy & Transparent - Barreto-Gonzalez Family
We bought our home with Julio, as he came highly recommended to us by many friends. The fact that Julio and Donna were always there for us, regardless the day, or time, really stood out. They are caring people who really take their time to suggest what is best for you. Julio made the process really fast, easy and transparent for us right from day one. We would recommend Julio and Donna to whoever is thinking about buying or selling a property.
True Professional - Gary & Ettie
As we have said before, we could not have had a better person than yourself to sell our home. We noticed how good you were when you handled our son's sale and acquisition a few years ago. Your professionalism and accurate advice was duly noted by us. We knew we would be retiring and also knew who we wanted to help us do that. You are a credit to your profession in a polar opposite to the agent who represented the people who ended up buying our home...You, on the other hand, elevate the standard exponentially through sound advice, superior knowledge, and the fact that you are a genuinely sincere and honest man, and a nice person to boot. It is not often we get to meet people like you, and Ettie and I are proud to have met you and called you a friend. I would recommend you to anyone who needs your help in a heartbeat.
Respectable, Hard-Working & Reliable - Krista Balsom & Jason Cumby
We purchased our first home with Julio. Over the years we have come to know Julio as a respectable, hard-working and reliable Realtor through friend testimonials and community words. Working with Julio, we found him to be always reliable, and easy to communicate with. He always kept us in the loop and advised us to the next steps and gave us advice when we needed it. Buying a home is a stressful process and Julio made it as easy and simple as possible. As new homebuyers we needed lots of explanations and it was great having such a strong ally on our side to help us make the best decisions. We would highly recommend any home buyers or home purchasers to consider hiring Julio and his team to represent you during this very important phase in your life. With them you get honesty, reliability and help when you need it the most, and all definitely with a smile!
Great Team - Mark & Tracey
Julio & Donna, We're so happy to have gotten to know you both. Thank you for your hard work finding us our home in Fort McMurray. The girls are settling in, making friends and enjoying it here. We're sure you'll have continued success with your business!
First Time Buyers - Maria Teresa & Romeo Balasa
House buying was not easy for us in the sense that we were first time buyers and had no idea what to do. We picked Julio Florez among the many who were recommended by our friends and relatives and we found him to competent, friendly, true and honest in dealing with us as his clients. Julio never lost his patience with us looking at many houses and he guided us throughout the process in a nice and professional way, which we really appreciated. He persevered with us in every detail and every question we had, big and small. We were blessed and thankful for having him as our realtor and also to Donna Houston, his Manager whom we felt the warmth of help, concern and happiness for us. You both did a wonderful job. It was highly appreciated. We would highly recommend you both!
Selling experience as it should be I sold with Julio. He was among 4 realtors recommended by my relocation company. I met 3 out of 4, and Julio gave the best first impression and was very well prepared even with a minimum of information provided to him. Julio and Donna were very professional, had a fast turnaround and were available and flexible [to my schedule]. The selling experience was as it should be. - Etienne
Excellent Listener - Da Silva Family
We chose Julio a few years ago to sell a property and to purchase a new one and we just sold that home with him. The service that Julio provides is outstanding. His commitment with the customers is unique and he is always open to understand the needs of the customers. Julio takes the proper time to explain the process from the beginning and he treats every customer as they were the only one. He understands the customer’s expectations and always tries to meet them. He is absolutely an excellent listener, which makes the process very easy because he knows what we are looking for. He provides excellent advices during the process, which reduces the stress. He is AWESOME! We will recommend Julio and Donna a million of times.
Above and Beyond Professional - Joyce & Don Baker
We bought a house with Julio after a friend told me about him. Julio and Donna are the best team ever - they are so supportive they listen to there clients; they go the extra mile as well they make things so easy in buying a house. They are above and beyond professional. They are very supportive and their honesty with my husband and I as clients was amazing. Both of you, please keep up the amazing work, we need more Realtors like you both! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I would recommend him a 100 times - The Ban Family
We both bought and listed our homes with Julio, twice. In terms of being a realtor, Julio has always come across as being very honest and worthy of our trust. He never gave me a “bad” vibe. I knew what he said was the truth and that is why I made a decision to keep using him. The process with Julio was laid out clearly. He made sure we were totally comfortable with everything instead of going ahead without our permission. Julio is the best realtor we have every used. I would recommend him a 100 times before even considering another Realtor.
It Was Fun - Byron Morgan
I bought with Julio after two people referred him to me. He did a great job in making sure I got a house suitable for me; he wanted to make sure I got what I wanted. The process was fun. He took the edge off of any stresses that may have been there and was easy to get a hold of when necessary. Thank you very much with everything!
Simple & Easy to Manage - Kim & Lee Nordbye
Selling our home was efficient, effective, painless, well organized and knowledgeable. The process was simple, easy to manage and well explained. It was great working with you both! Thank you.
