Julius Tatum - Watson Real Estate

I’m proud to have served our country as a member of both the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard, where I retired at 27 years in a senior enlisted role.  With experience moving often and frequently during my service time, I know firsthand how stressful the process of finding a new home is.  That’s where I come in!

During my years of military service, I was recognized on multiple occasions for going above and beyond in my role, surpassing the expectations of not only my superiors, but also those whose lives I impacted—whether on search and rescue calls or recruiting efforts.  I served as a recruiter for more than a decade, working on both a local and national scale, and was responsible for a large portion of the United States recruiting efforts.  With extended training and specialized coursework, including the Leadership Academy, I am a highly-skilled negotiator who focuses on the long-term and getting people not only what they need, but what they want.

As a father of two (and grandfather to five!), I am aware of the concerns many have in purchasing a new home, and particularly the unique stressors placed on families who are new to an area.  While uprooting families, researching new schools and learning a new field of specialty or profession, I want those I serve to have one less thing to worry about.  I know that I can’t just hear what my customers are saying … I really have to listen and understand their desires and dynamic.

My proudest moments of service were in helping others, and I strive to continue that by helping people to find homes they feel happy raising their families in … just as I wanted every time the military moved me.  Whether your first house, your fifth or your “forever” home, I’m here and ready to help!

Julius was a blessing to us as my family was getting ready to relocate to St. John’s County from Puerto Rico. There was a lot of unknowns on the PCS time frame but knew when we were given the go ahead - it would be a very fast move. Julius was so helpful and patient with us as we were exploring various areas on line before we narrowed it down more. Finding a rental from Puerto Rico is no easy task. My husband was in the states for some training and had one afternoon to drive down and look at some rentals in person. Julius did a phenomenal job at showing my husband several good options - one of which we selected and are very happily renting. We could never have done this move without his help!

We were from Ohio looking for a realtor that was willing to work with out of town buyers. After some not so nice experiences we headed home. My daughter walk into the Watson Realty and met Julius. Within a month we finally have our home in Saint Augustine. He was able to exceed and meet all of our expectations. Gave us helpful tips for the area of Saint Augustine. If you list or a buying you can’t go wrong with Julius if Watson Realty.

I am so fortunate to have Julius on our Team. His ethics, integrity and professionalism is unsurpassed. I'm very proud of him and would highly recommend him to anyone needing to buy or sale, including World Wide Relocating.

I cannot be more pleased with Julius remarkable dedication during our journey in finding the right home. Julius was easily accessible via phone, facetime, email and text easing the search while we were 2700 miles away. Patiently and diligently worked with my family during our house hunting leave understanding the time crunch for our upcoming PCS move. Throughout the process he also showed us the surrounding areas and all the local go-to spots. Thank you so much for your assistance in the course in all of this. Immensely appreciated!!

Jeff & Chloe

With the help of Julius, our family was able to purchase our home over FaceTime from Omaha, NE. Julius went above and beyond driving all around north FL trying to find our our ideal home....and he did!!! If you want a realtor that goes above and beyond, then Julius is the guy for you! The Heberts

Neil & Katy

Julius did an exceptional job for our family. He made a very difficult for sale by owner purchase possible for us from 4 states away. He not only went to every appointment we asked but sent pictures. He was an effective communicator with the owners themselves and their legal counsel. I could go on but bottom line if you are looking for a professional he is your guy.

Chris & Stephanie

Second time using Watson to sell a home for me. Julius was excellent. From start to the finish line I’d hoped for. I have crazy hours and he was always a phone or text away to answer questions. Goes the extra mile. Very knowledgeable about the area and pricing to make the sale. Punctual and polite. I’d recommend Julius to anyone looking for any real estate needs.

Julius was a referral and I'm glad we connected. Being a military family stationed in Puerto Rico it was hard to find time to come to Florida to search for a home, Not a issue with Julius! He did his absolute best to find us our home, and succeeded. He went out of his way and even video called me while he walked through the homes my wife and I were interested in and even stayed in contact with me well after hours. Very professional and personable. He made my wife and I feel at ease through the whole process. Thanks a Million Julius! You went above and beyond and we Thank you for that.

Julius was able to find us a beautiful home in a short amount of time! We were on a strict time schedule and budget and he was able to get us in the best neighborhood under our budget. Grateful to be able to work with someone who knows the area so well!

Mr. Tatum is the most thorough and professional sales representative that I have worked with. He will listen intently to your needs and he will work hard to fill your requests with well thought out solutions. You can count on him after the sale to insure proper follow-through and in seeing that all of the "loose ends" are "tied up" properly. He cares about you and your family as well as the efficient closing of your purchase.

Jim Daniel

I've known Julius for nearly 25 years. You couldn't ask for a nicer, more caring guy. He's a great people person and will work hard to make sure his clients are happy.

Julius is always one of the most helpful individuals I know - whether as a person or a salesman. I’ve known him for a number of years and he is one who always makes himself available to help those around him, going above and beyond in any way he can. I definitely trust him to help me in many facets of life, including purchasing a home. Five stars for Julius!!!
