Helping Seniors Buy and Sell Homes

Julie Weist with her client Mary, who had lived in her home for 51 years.

There are a lot of real estate agents around town and most of them are utilizing the "latest and greatest" technologies to sell homes and communicate with their clients.  The following letter serves as a review of a local real estate agent, Julie Weist of Howard Hanna, who has not lost touch with the personal side of the business. Selling a home that someone has lived in for 40+ years can be a very traumatic experience. With more than 23 years in the business, Julie offers compassion and support when dealing with all of her clients, especially seniors making that "big move."

Julie, on behalf of my mother Mary and our entire family, I want to thank you for your help and assistance in selling my mother’s home in Rocky River.  

As you know, a number of months ago we made the difficult decision to sell the home my mother had lived in for the past 51 years and move her to the Toledo area to be geographically closer to my wife and me as well as my sister and her husband.   

As part of the transition, one of our biggest concerns was asking our mother to deal with a potentially apathetic real estate sales person.  We feel very fortunate that a close friend recommended you as a person who has a special gift in dealing with “senior” clients.  

In a very short time, my mother grew very comfortable working with you.  She was particularly impressed with how you looked out for her well-being and helped guide her through all of the details associated with selling her home.   

In summary, you took what could have been a very stressful event and helped our entire family work through it in a relaxed, caring and professional manner. 

Thank you again for all of your help and support.
