I am a local area expert with knowledge of the surrounding communities. With 80% of homebuyers using the internet to search for their new home, you will want an internet specialist working both with you and for you! My broad experience and training will enable me to market your property in the most effective way. I understand how to make transactions come together. My dedication and work ethic has led to a happy and successful career in Real Estate. My goal is to make your real estate transaction a very pleasant and financially beneficial one.

During my previous experience in sales management for a major corporation, I had extensive training in managing behavior, communications, relationships and negotiation. While I still had one full time job, I embraced another challenge—I entered the real estate arena as an Investor. I have successfully turned rehab projects into tax-deferred, 1031 exchanges for investment property that meets my long term investment portfolio. I researched and personally utilized Gulf Opportunity Zone Act (GO Zone) incentives for additional investment purposes. I have successfully negotiated pre-foreclosure, short-sale transactions working with sellers and multiple banks. I personally manage my investment property portfolio. Friends and my supportive husband encouraged me to use my organizational skills, my ability to multi-task and what I've learned in many personal experiences with real estate to help others to be successful.

On a personal note, I am happily married to my husband of 25 years, we have a lovely home here and have chosen to make this the community where we’ll raise our two very active little boys. Growing up in the St. Tammany area and being a graduate of Mandeville High School, I can still appreciate the strong impact and sense of community that the smaller south Louisiana areas have to offer.

-Dale P Welper , Client
"Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in South Campus, Baton Rouge, LA. I found Julie on referral from a friend who purchased a home with her. From Day 1 she was interested in what "I" wanted. She was patient and knew literally everything about the neighborhood, surrounding neighborhoods, demographics, and location concerns that I had relative to schools. She was great about helping me every step of the way with the purchase, utilities, paperwork, etc. and both her and her husband were always available for questions. This was the 5th home I have purchased over the years and BY FAR the easiest in terms of cutting through red tape. "

"Sold a home in 2016 in Oak Hills Place, Baton Rouge, LA 70810. “Combination of Joan of Arc and Marie Curie. Being recruited to replaced Barbara Corcoran on Shark Tank. May have her own show on Bravo for Million Dollar Realtors of Baton Rouge. Seriously, Juli is the finest realtor I have ever dealt with and is supported by a wonderful team.

- Max McWiggins , Client
"Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $275K in South Burbank, Baton Rouge, LA. My family had to move quickly to find a home after the flood. Juli quickly understood our home needs and the family dynamic. With her local knowledge, she was able to locate appropriate housing options and isolate our best options. Her negotiating skills helped us make the best deal for everyone involved. Julie's expertise with the closing process was extremely helpful particularly given the extremely fast turnaround we required. (10 days) Even after the close Juli has been quick to support us with occasional issues that go beyond the scope of her realtor function. I would gladly recommend Juli to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Baton Rouge. "

"Juli Jenkins and her skilled team provided expert and timely support in selling our property in Baton Rouge. We had a tight timeline for selling the home, with the added challenge of being out-of-state sellers. We relied on Juli for expert advice on all aspects of preparing, marketing and selling the house. Our stated goal to Juli was to complete the move out, home preparation and act of sale within three months--Juli and her team delivered on that goal. Juli's referrals for skilled contractors enabled us to prepare the home for sale in one month. The buyer's offer came in within 48 hours of listing and the many steps to the final act of sale proceeded smoothly, with no surprises or glitches. We would work with Juli and her superb team again without hesitation."

The process took about 7 months, and from start to finish, she was patient, encouraging, and always immediately available for showings and questions. When we made an offer on a home and ultimately went to closing, she made the process look easy! She was very professional, timely, and knowledgeable, guiding us every step of the way.

"Out of the blue we walked into an open house and got in contact with Susan. During Halloween night we saw a house that we liked and gave Susan a call. She helped us with everything (viewing, pricing, contract, home inspection, insurance, closing, utility set-up, ...). You name it, she helped with it. She made time for us whenever we had a question. If she did not had an answer direct, then she got back to us within a very short timeframe. It was very pleasant interaction. Professional and at the same time also personal. "
-Francis Schenk- Bought Home in Geismar, LA, Client
"We bought our dream home thanks to Juli in January 2015. I remember when I said we wanted the house because Juli replied “Great, but first, I want make sure its priced right, in case you ever do want to sell.” I honestly thought nothing of it because why would we sell anytime soon. Well 6 months later my husband had a job opportunity we simply could not pass up. Before accepting the job we called Juli. While sitting in a grocery store parking lot with Juli on speaker phone we “crunched the numbers.” Juli made sure we understood all of the expectations and boundaries for selling our house so soon. With that said, she agreed we simply could not pass up this opportunity. Juli not only had a contract on our house within 40 days, she also had the buyers closing within that window as well. Simply stated, we never had to make a mortgage payment for a house we did not live in! All because Juli did her homework and took good care of us from the beginning. Even though we now live out of state. "
-Elizabeth Jensen- Sold Home in Pride, LA , Client
"Juli sold our house when no one else could! We sold an unusual type house on the river. It had been on the market a little over a year and we were getting desperate, so I researched top selling realtors in the area and Juli's name came up. From the beginning Juli had a no holds barred approach. Sensing our discontent, she moved quickly, advised us what needed to be done and put marketing strategies in place. Our house sold in six months."
-Lori Piner- Sold Home in Rougon, LA , Client
"Working with Juli was an awesome and comforting experience from beginning to end. She went above and beyond to assist us in finding our dream home based on our needs and desires. Juli not only was available to show us properties in person, she was also accessible by email and telephone to answer any and all questions we had about the home buying process. Juli only showed us properties that fit our criteria and never attempted to convince us to look at home that we were not interested in. Once we made an offer on a home, Juli worked tirelessly to advocate for and negotiate the terms of our contract. My husband and I truly feel that we that the home we purchased is not only our dream home, but a smart investment. We would highly recommend Juli to anyone in the market to sell or buy a home. I know that when it is time to sell our home, Juli will be our first phone call. "
-Helena Rothleutne-Bough Home in Prairieville, LA, Client
"Juli and her team made finding a home in Baton Rouge practically effortless. I was coordinating a move from Georgia in a short period of time and it was crucial to have someone local who understood my needs and was trustworthy.

Everyone we worked with treated us with respect and as though we were their top priority. Highly recommend without reservation!"

"Juli and her team were exceptional to work with. I have purchased and sold many homes over the last 35 years and will say this team provided personal, prompt and highly knowledgeable service without fail. They were always available, and always helpful. I was buying "long distance", so Juli found an outdoor refrigerator, bought it on my behalf, and had it delivered so the builder could install for me - definitely out of her normal scope! We even moved the closing date forward by 1 month and everything was so smooth! I highly recommend this team to anyone. "
