To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this testimonial on behalf of Julie Jones & Associates.

We recently sold our waterfront home in Rio Vista Isles with the expertise and professionalism of Julie Jones. Julie is a true professional with keen intelligence, integrity and charm. Julie Jones is the only realtor I would ever recommend to sell or purchase a luxury home in Fort Lauderdale.

Maureen's sales process was excellent. Maureen presented us with a schedule on how and when she was going to show and sell our home and followed through with it. We knew upfront what to expect and she delivered. We have purchased and sold many houses with many different realtors and we can say that she is excellent at what she does and I would highly recommend her and will use her again.

Maureen and Ron provided great advice. They accurately identified things that would add value and lead to a quicker sale. The pricing they recommended was in line with the market, which led to many showings and early offers. We were impressed with the service they provided and with the end result...a quick sale.

Julie was professional, organized, and responsive in all stages of listing our home. She was also very knowledgeable of the local housing market. Tim and Maria communicated to us regularly on the showings and made the closing process easy.

Thank you Julie and we will pass along your name!

Dear Ms. Jones

Thank you for your professional assistance in selling my client's residence located on 28th Street in Fort Lauderdale. You have been an absolute pleasure to work with and I am extremely impressed with your expertise, knowledge of the market, and skills. Thank you for your much appreciated and commendable efforts.

Maureen was the seller's agent for an estate of which I was the trustee. She developed a comprehensive plan to stage and present the condo owned by the estate and did an exacting analysis of "comparables" to identify meaningful distinctions. Maureen attended both open house events and was present at every showing. She communicated extremely well with buyer's agents, being well prepared to respond to their points regarding other condos sold in our building and in other buildings. Maureen contacted me with weekly status reports and provided excellent insights and advice. As a result of her efforts, despite a difficult market, the condo sold at the highest price for any two-bedroom in the building in years

Maureen and Ron are by far the most prepared professional real estate team I have ever dealt with. Always a pleasure to deal with experience and integrity.

Maureen tirelessly showed us many homes until we found the perfect one. She and Ron followed every detail right through closing. We highly recommend this team.

Keith & Sheryl Schulte

As a team, it would be hard to find better. Ron Lennen and Maureen Rotella exhausted all efforts in advertising, displaying, showing, marketing, and effectuating a deal. I appreciated how well they work with each other and their clients. I would utilize their services again gladly, and refer my clients to them.

Cynthia Dienstag, Attorney at Law

Ron Lennen represented the sellers of a home I eventually purchased. His professionalism, knowledge and experience were decisive in my ultimate decision to purchase. I was so impressed by his efforts, I hired him to sell my previous home. We were successful in short order and achieved the return we had hoped for. All of this was handled with excellent communication, follow-up, presentation and marketing. I recommend Ron to anyone interested in excellent service buying or selling a home. It was a pleasure dealing with Ron. I will call upon him again.

Dear Julie,

We recently sold our waterfront home in the Las Olas Isles, using the services of Julie Jones. We were extremely happy with the expertise, professionalism, and knowledge she brought to the transaction.

We expected no less, but what we really found unique and very helpful was what the team brought to the sale. They were thorough, knowledgeable, and always available to answer questions.

The service we received was worth every penny we paid, and we would recommend Julie and her team to anyone wanting to buy or sell an expensive home in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter to tell you about our experience dealing with Julie Jones and Maria Seltzer when my husband and I purchased our Fort Lauderdale home earlier this year.

We first met Julie Jones when our agent showed us around various homes in the Las Olas area in February 2012. Julie was the listing agent for 30 Fiesta Way and she was very helpful in answering our questions when we toured the property. When we decided to make an offer on the home, Julie worked with our agent to make sure everything went smoothly. This was not a simple transaction, and Julie and Maria were very professional dealing with various hurdles, making sure that their client's needs were met as well as ours. We were unfamiliar with many of the steps required, not only because the transaction was complicated, but also because we are not living in the US. They worked very hard with our agent to make sure the deal closed on time. 

I also want to mention that Maria Seltzer went well beyond what would be expected of an agent once the transaction was completed. She provided us with information about the area including the name of her doctor, a dentist, grocery stores, florists, caterers, basically anything we could need for setting up our home and settling into life in Fort Lauderdale. She also gave us the name of a wonderful property manager, and even drove me to City Hall (in a thunderstorm) to complete paperwork on closing. Thank you, Maria, for being so helpful and welcoming.

We would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home in the area. They are just the right combination of professional and personable.

To: Julie Jones-Bernard, Florida Luxurious Properties

From our first meeting, it was evident that Julie Jones- Bernard was a true professional. Her knowledge of the luxury market, her experienced staff and her network of contacts worldwide assured us that our property would be marketed to the most qualified audience.

 Now that we’ve completed the process of selling our waterfront home, we are absolutely brimming with enthusiasm for her and Florida Luxurious Properties! Every step of the way, Julie exuded confidence and integrity, a positive attitude and patience. We have bought and sold many homes, but our experience with Julie has never been paralleled. It goes without saying that we highly recommend her!
