I want to commend a real estate agent in Squamish named Julie Phoenix. I met Julie about 4 years ago when I purchased my first home in Squamish. It is worth noting that my wife and I knew little to nothing about how to purchase a home. Julie made the entire process simple. I had heard horror stories from friends and family members saying that real estate agents can be "sneaky" or that "they will do anything to make a sale". This was far from our experience with Julie. She was kind, informative, and always willing to go out of her way to help us. Most importantly, she listened. She understood what our needs were and wanted to find the best place that would suit those needs. She did just that.
Now, 4 years later Julie has exceeded our expectations once again. We were looking to sell our condo last year as we moved to Tofino, but despite our best efforts it was not the right time, so we decided to rent out our property until we were ready to re-list. Before the madness of Covid-19 we decided to re-list our property this year in January and found a buyer in February. This was not only sooner than expected, but we actually received a higher purchase price than what we were expecting. We truly believe this is due to Julie's efforts.
To make matters complicated, Covid-19 strikes in March and our tenants did not want to move out due to the lack of safety involved with moving during a pandemic. This was unchartered territory for many of us - including Julie. However, she handled everything calmly and professionally. Without getting into the gritty details, Julie guided us through the process and gave us sound advice, which resulted in us taking the appropriate steps to ensure the sale of our property proceeded as initially planned. We are forever grateful that everything worked out and Julie deserves to be commended at the highest level. She was more than just a real estate agent through this process - she was a friend and someone who truly cared about our future and well being. Thank you Julie!

Jack and Julie are a wonderful team that you can count on to be professional, knowledgeable, hard working, and with you every step of the way for either home sale or purchase.
We have known Jack for several years and he has helped us with a number of purchases and sales, all of which we have been very pleased with.
With the addition of Julie this combination is top notch. The recent sale of our home and purchase of a new one was handled very well with Julie stepping in to assist at a crucial time when Jack was away.
We highly recommend either of these realtors as your primary agent and as a team will serve you very well.
Thank you Jack and Julie for going the extra step in so many ways over the past months as we made our transition in Squamish. You provided a very personal service and considerably reduced the stress involved.
We were absolutely impressed by Julie's dedication and professionalism. When my parents (being 72 years old and less than fluent in english) decided to sell their property in Squamish I was expecting to have at least a few stressing situations in the process. Specially because I recently had relocated 6000 km away from them. Julie was not only very smart and understood what we needed needed but she was also very kind and gave confidence to my parents during the whole process. She kept impeccable, clear, timely communication with me all the time. She worked really hard for us so my parents and I could have the best experience in what I initially thought was difficult situation. I had previous experiences with 3 different agents in the Squamish area. My experience with them does not come even close to what Julie did for us. I can confidently say that anyone who has the opportunity to work with her should definitely take it. We feel very lucky for having her on our side.

After a struggle to find the right realtor, my husband and I were lucky to meet Julie at an open house in Squamish. Julie is very friendly, trustworthy and a great communicator. We especially appreciated her honesty and quick and thorough responses to inquiries. I highly recommend Julie whether you're a first time buyer or seasoned investor. We look forward to seeing you on the trails in our new hometown, Squamish!

Tomorrow is the closing date of our recent condominium sale and I want to take this opportunity to thank Julie Phoenix for her expertise and professionalism during the course of the transaction.
From the signing of the Contract of Purchase and Sale, to the delivery of documents, to the respective persons and all the details in between, Julie demonstrated her knowledge and attention to detail that left me feeling that I was in very capable hands.
It was indeed a pleasure working with Julie and I take pleasure in recommending her to anyone considering a Real Estate transaction.
Good luck with your continuing career Julie and thank you.

I had my property on the market for a very long time with minimal activity before I listed with Julie. Once Julie was involved with the listing there was action -- open houses, showings, a lot of interest, and most importantly a sale!
Julie worked diligently and was committed to making the sale but also kept my best interests in mind. She was professional, efficient, and always kept the communication open and honest.
I highly recommend Julie...she has a passion for her work and it shows.
Thank you Julie!

My partner and I were looking to buy our first home when a friend had recommended using Julie Phoenix as our realtor. With our busy and chaotic schedules, we were impressed at how flexible Julie was and how she always seemed to make things work.
Julie was professional, patient, and very easy to work with. We are beyond happy with the home we bought and are grateful to have had such an easy and pleasant experience.

Julie was a very reliable realtor for us and made herself readily available when we needed her. In a real estate market as busy as Squamish, we needed a fast acting realtor to view homes as soon as they came up. Julie was meticulous with the details and the fine print of our transactions. Our home sold much faster than we expected. Julie did a great job for us, in both the sale of our townhome as well as with the purchase of our new house. Thanks Julie !!
