Welcome and thank you for visiting my page!

A Little About Me:  When my family moved to Saint Johns, FL in 2010 we instantly fell in love with the area for all that it offers: beaches, arts, excellent schools, friendly people, water sports, symphony, theater, museums, youth sports, great restaurants, historic sites, golf, tennis, biking and a family-focused, laid back lifestyle in a pleasing climate. My husband and I have three children -one who currently attends a St. Johns County school, one at the University of Florida and one adulting in another state - and we intend to remain here enjoying northeastern Florida for many years to come

But Your Home Sale or Purchase is About You, Not Me. My experience working with Buyers and Sellers has proven over and over again that well-informed customers who are kept apprised of local market conditions are most satisfied with their real estate decisions not only during the buying or selling process but long afterwards. I am available to answer any of your questions about St Johns and Jacksonville, FL, relocating, and buying or selling a home. I welcome the opportunity to work with you and earn your trust!

It's Your Move!

Julie is a knowledgeable, professional yet personable agent. She was very patient with us as we searched for a house that checked all of our boxes. We eventually decided to purchase land and build a home. She assisted us in purchasing the land and stayed in contact throughout the building process keeping us updated on the current market so we would know what to expect when it came time to list our existing home. Julie made selling our home as seamless as possible. She aggressively promoted our home through a variety of avenues. She was very accommodating to our schedule with open houses and showings. She kept us informed of any feedback and developments. We moved from our home before it was sold so Julie staged it. She checked on the home regularly following showings to insure the house was still in excellent showing condition. When the home went under contract she was diligent and thorough with the negotiations and paperwork. She went above and beyond every step of the way; including accommodating needs of the buyer and helping their transition even though she wasn't their agent. We definitely recommend Julie and would use her again!

We were renting after relocating 2017 and were in the process of researching on our own our house. We stumbled upon Julie while we were visiting open houses....while we were not interested in the open house she was show casing she took time to take notes of what we were interested in and followed up with suggested houses that matched what we were looking for. Julie was very detailed in finding us the right home while not inundating with an excessive amount of homes. It was like she narrowed down on what we would be interested in seeing and nailed it. Julie made sure to check in with us (while not bombarding us) and was very accommodating on short notice walk throughs. When it came to the possible house Julie was an excellent guide in walking us through the process of CDDs (we never had this in our previous state of NC), assisted with negotiations and working with the seller's agent working late into a Sunday evening to ensure we secured the house. Julie is very personable, knowledgeable, courteous and follows up leaving no stone unturned. Not knowing any realtor in the area we were very fortunate that one day of visiting open houses that we were matched with Julie and we cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she did to help us settle in our home, thank you Julie

Dear reader, Julie has been our agent when we sold our house spring 2018. We selected her because she was ready to exploit all potentials the property had and tailored a promotional approach to attract potential buyers. We were kept informed during the entire process of the state of the development of the offers and then transaction through electronic, phone and, when critical, face to face communications. She had a great understanding of our particular needs, adjusted to my business trips, negotiated required agreements timely to respond to unforeseen situations. I assure you that you will enjoy partnering with Julie.

There was no doubt in our minds that Julie Bentley would get our house sold!!! We contacted her months in advance and knew we would be listing with her. We stayed in contact and discussed market conditions as well any any changes or upgrades we may want to consider and then we were ready to list... Julie photographed our house and also utilized technology to create an amazing matterport (doll house image) of our home. She marketed well and consulted her peers for feedback on our listing. She sold our home and we couldn’t have been happier working with Julie. We highly recommend her for any of your housing needs!!! I remember one realtor left a note to “Julie the great” - she was spot on!

Julie could not have been more helpful in getting my house to the closing table. It should have been an easy transaction. BUT...beginning with some odd reactions from some of the showings and continuing thru an unusual situation with the first offer, all the way to the final signatures at the closing table, Julie was my absolute source of hope. Julie kept me informed but, not alarmed, every step of the way. She started out as a friend of my daughter and became a friend of mine!

Julie was referred to us by a friend of hers in Rochester, NY and we couldn't have been happier with the experience. Our situation was unique in that neither my wife or I were in Jacksonville during the search process. We looked online and during a one week work visit I was able to go check out a home. After our offer was accepted Julie helped schedule and be present for a few inspections and was always punctual moving the entire process along. When it came time to close, my wife flew in on a Saturday and Julie had everything ready to go Monday morning, to include watching over our kids while my wife knocked out the signatures. - She was very friendly as well as professional, to the point, and competent. I'd happily recommend Julie to anyone looking for a realtor.

Julie assisted my family with 3 sales over the last 2-3 years. 2 were new purchases and 1 was the sale of an existing home. She knows the Mandarin and St Johns County area very well and was able to negotiate the best sale price and purchase price for us all. Julie assisted most recently with a new home purchase in Rivertown Community by Mattamy homes. She was knowledgeable on the new construction process, what the builder may be willing to negotiate with us on and we were able to secure a great property below their original asking price and got some extras added in. I was very pleased with the process and most certainly the experience, knowledge and involvement Julie provided throughout the process as my Realtor. I highly recommend her for your next move!

Working with Julie Bentley on the search for our home was an absolute pleasure. She quickly got a sense of what kind of house and neighborhood would suit us, and found us just what we wanted. She was helpful at every stage of the bid and purchase. In sum, she was sympathetic, considerate, and unfailingly willing to go the extra mile. She is a very professional and utterly delightful person.

Working with Julie both locally and from out of state prior to our move was an outstanding experience. She was the consummate professional, while also showing great patience and support each step of the way. Julie knows her trade and has a great personality as well. I highly recommend Julie and the Watson team! Ron W

Our experience working with Julie was wonderful. As we all know relocating can be stressful. Buying and selling a home at the same time and changing careers can be overwhelming. Julie was the only professional that I have dealt with in quite a long time that consistently stepped in to make our transition as smooth as possible. We always felt that she was their for us with every hurdle. My Fiancee and I are both in Sales and do all we can to help our clients and that was how Julie treated us. Again, thank you for everything!!!

I could not be happier with the service we received. With two elementary kids relocating from Indiana to Florida was very stressful for our family. Finding the best schools and neighborhoods was difficult to put our heads around. Julie was so patient and extremely knowledgeable. She took the time to do a comparison on multiple neighborhoods comparing amenities, schools, cost, etc. I was extremely impressed with how much time she devoted to getting to know our family so she could help us find the perfect location. I am 100% sold on Julie. If our family relocates again, no question Julie will be our realtor. Grateful for the wonderful service- The Middlebrook Family

We've had what other offices have called their "best" and had no results. Thanks for knocking it out of the park for us! I swear it was like you were reading our minds most of the time!

I had the pleasure of working with Julie Bentley several times over the last few years. Two years ago she helped us find property that we are now building our dream home on. This past year she assisted us in finding a condo for our daughter and helped my mom sell her home. Her professionalism, attention to detail and follow through is amazing. In my opinion the most important trait that a realtor can possess is honesty and the most important part of a relationship with that realtor is trust. Julie is honest and trustworthy. If you are considering buying or selling, you absolutely need to talk with Julie.

Kim Frakaloss

I can’t say enough good things about Julie Bentley! She worked diligently to help us with our relocation finding us the perfect home and all of the hiccups that come with relocating. Not only was she patient, but she guided us every step of the way through some very stressful times. She even helped us when our moving truck was over a week late. She showed up with blankets, necessities, and toys for our children. She was our anchor in a very stressful time. If you are looking for someone to look out for you and your family in every way, make Julie your realtor today.

JoAnn and I have been so fortunate to meet Julie Bentley.  We were moving to the Jacksonville area from out of state.  Julie had worked with our son's family on their move and they were pleased to recommend we meet with Julie.  Julie was very responsive to our needs; that we were moving from out of state, we were downsizing and we were semi-retired.  She took us to tour several homes over several days before we selected the right one for us.  But the real blessing that endeared us to Julie came when we were following her to the office to close on the home we selected.  It was raining and our vehicle was struck from behind.  The accident totaled our vehicle.  While we dealt with the police, fire department and the wrecker, Julie called her office and alerted the staff.  The staff was waiting when we arrived.  After we completed the closing Julie and JoAnn finally convinced me to visit the emergency room.  Though everything was fine Julie remained with JoAnn in the lobby and then arranged for 2 young men to unload the UHaul with Julie and JoAnn's help until I was released.  When moving day came Julie's sign in the yard welcoming JoAnn and me home was the final touch.We were blessed to work with Julie; we were happy with the home we selected but her attention to our needs and requirements and her going beyond the call in making a bad situation successful was extraordinary!  I don't know that we will move again, we are very satisfied with our home, but if we do, Julie will be our first call.
