My approach to Real Estate and what I believe has made me successful is to simply start with the needs of my clients, always be committed to those needs and to utilize every experience over my past 12 years of real estate practice to benefit my clients. It all began because I had a knack for assisting buyers in finding and negotiating for their perfect home, and soon my career morphed by utilizing my strong sales and marketing background to become even more successful in assisting people in selling their homes for the highest price possible, while simultaneously negotiating a great deal for their next home.
Each client is in a unique situation, a different walk of life, with varying goals and dreams. And as a trusted advocate, I make it my mission for every client to have the same outcome—an enjoyable and successful buying/selling experience that they can’t wait to tell their friends about.

"After deciding to buy my first home I was facing what I thought was a daunting task. Julie's killer combination of experience, personality, and dedication to her clients turn this task into a straightforward and enjoyable experience. If/ when
I decide to move again she will be the first person I call."
"This is a review of our realtor, Julianna Wassell, or Julie as she has become affectionately known to my whole family. The quick and short of it, is she is awesome, fantastic, exceptional, phenomena ... l, and any other words with the same meanings. Julie has become my families' realtor, as it were. She helped my sister and brother-in-law, and my mother find and buy their homes. When I got orders to be stationed in Colorado, my sister referred me to her and that was a decision that has saved my wife and I a lot of time, energy, and money. We purchased a new house and dealing with the builder, at times, was difficult and stressful. However, Julie led us through the process and was not afraid to call out the builder, when necessary, or ask the tough questions. She always kept us informed on any information she received from the builder and was persistent in getting us answers or information to our questions. She went out of her way to help us, literally. While still stationed out of the state, Julie, along with my family, made several trips outside her usual work area to finalize details about the house contract, pick structural options for the house, even go to the design center and choose interior options on our behalf, and numerous additional things. It was a long process from going under contract to finally closing and moving in, but Julie made the whole process as simple and smooth as possible. She truly had our best interests at heart and fought for us to ensure we got the best deal on our house. She is without a doubt the best realtor out there."
"If it weren't for Julie Wassell, my daughter and I would be living....I actually don't want to think about it! She found us a house that is perfect for the two of us, it wasn't even "available" yet! If you are looking for a real estate agent, Julie is one who will be in your corner every step of the way."
"I highly recommend Julie!! Julie always went above and beyond! Julie always had our best interests in mind. Trying to locate from a different state with a 4 year old and a 1 year old was enough stress. It felt like Julie was holding our hand through the entire process. From the start, she did not ask how much we were looking to spend – her focus was on what type of home were we looking for and the price figured itself out. Relocating from Nebraska, adjusting to many changes such as lot size, construction, and price were all factors we had to work through and Julie helped us every step of the way."
"This is the second time my wife and I have worked with Julie and we could not be more pleased! Whenever myself, or my wife, had questions she is always very helpful and quick to respond. PorchLight and Julie provide excellent services that turn the selling and buying process into an easy, stress free experience. My wife and I could not have asked for a better realtor! Thank you so much Julie, it has been great working with you once again!"
"I was a first time homebuyer and the task seemed extremely daunting. Julie Wassell made the process so simple and painless. She broke down the process into very understandable terms. She is also very knowledgeable about the market and her advice was so invaluable. I would recommend Julie in a heartbeat to anyone!"

"Julie and I had actually worked together for several years before she left to pursue her career in Real Estate, so when it came time for me to sell my home, she was the first person I thought of. And it was the right decision. Selling a home is complicated, sometimes emotionally exhausting process, so you really need someone who knows the process well. Julie's knowledge of the local market, the time of year I was listing my home, how to properly stage it, and how to advertise the home was a big help. But so was Julie's attention to detail, her availability to answer questions, and how she stayed in contact with me through the whole process via phone calls, emails and text messages. Much of the paperwork was sent and signed electronically, which was a huge time saver. And the best testimonial I can offer is that my home sold extremely quickly. I cannot recommend Julie any higher."

"I had purchased houses in the past as part of a couple, but this was the first time I had jumped into the markets alone. With Julie, I didn't have to worry about feeling alone. I had someone to bounce ideas, concerns and pie-in-the-sky wishes off of. Julie was sensitive to my work schedule and took care of several things for me, my eyes on the ground, and because she took the time to understand what I wanted, I knew she would be a great proxy for me. It's a tight market, but we leaned in at the right time with the right house, and I couldn't be happier with my new home."

"My home was professionally staged and marketed. We got 6 offers the first weekend, one of them was accepted. Julie explained the process and it went perfectly couldn’t be more happy."

""I had the pleasure of working with Julie Wassell with PorchLight Real Estate Group for several years in a non-real estate capacity and it was wonderful. This March we sold our home and Julie was spot on with everything. She proved once again that she is the best at what she does. She produced everything she said she would and all was done in a timely manner. Her crew was excellent as well. There were no worries, no glitches, all was smooth sailing. Thanks again Julie for providing two worry warts a very positive experience.""
"Julie worked really hard for our family. She spent countless nights and days meeting us to find the perfect home for our family. We turned in every direction you could possibly go in making it quite an adventure. Julie remained patient and eager to assist whenever and wherever possible. We found our perfect home and are so excited about our new adventure. I cannot express the gratitude to Julie for all the hard work she put into helping us buy and sell. She is an absolute pleasure to work with and makes the process very easy. I would highly recommend Julie, her professionalism and dedication to her clients is far above any other realtor I've ever worked with. Thank you Julie, you are simply amazing!"
"Julie was wonderful to work with from beginning to end. She was easygoing and respectful with any questions or concerns, gave me expert advice, and made herself available to me when I needed to contact her. I quite quickly ended up with a great offer and the process with the Buyers also went well. The company also did a great job with keeping me on task with dates, as I am a procrastinator and had the house ready to go in top shape just hours before photos. It ended up being a great experience because of Julie, as I was somewhat nervous about the process of selling my home."
"Julie Wassell (and the team) at PorchLight were absolutely awesome! We interviewed Julie as one of three agents we were considering. We knew about Julie because she sold a house two doors down from us. After we met with her, we knew she was the best option. She didn't disappoint! Julie, and the PorchLight team, arranged for staging, cleaning, pictures, and all the other things needed to get the house on the market. Then, once it was listed the house was under contract 10 days later! We were floored and amazed! From the quality of the staging, the postings on the Internet, the laminated flyer attached to the sign, and all the other marketing stuff, the work they did was fantastic! THANK YOU, Julie, and team, for making our house sale and move out of state trouble-free!"
"Absolutely would recommend Julie and PorchLight Real Estate Group! Having not sold, or purchased for that matter, a home in 26 years we had no idea what to steps to take or what to expect during the process. Julie and the team were excellent! They educated us, kept us informed throughout the process, and answered any questions we had whenever we had them. The staging visit that was included in her fee was eye opening, extremely helpful, and assisted in our receiving offers over listing price the first weekend! Once we accepted an offer, Julie's knowledge and experience really kicked, guiding us through the inspection process, resolution process, and ultimately the signing process. Thank you Julie and the PorchLight team for helping us sell our home!"
"As first time sellers Julie was a breath of fresh air to work with! She guided us through the entire process and made it so easy for us! We could not have asked for a more professional, caring, and efficient agent. We definitely recommend her, you won't regret it!"

"It was a wonderful experience from start to finish working with Julie on the sale of our Condo! We have known Julie for many years and have bought 2 properties with her and sold 1. Our first time buying Julie patiently walked us through the steps so that we could feel confident. During this most recent sale, Julie made the process easy for us by talking with us on the phone and completing all of the paperwork online. Limiting the amount of time we had to spend to sell the condo, and the amount of time we had to spend away from our jobs. The property was vacant, so Julie had it staged beautifully as well as cleaned! The condo had showings the first day it was on the market and was under contract in just a few days above our asking price. Julie guided us through the process of being under contract and negotiating to get the best deal for us. We love working with Julie and we will call her the next time we need to buy or sell!"

"Julie is hard working, detail oriented and results driven. She doesn’t miss any small detail. She goes above and beyond for her Clients and for her Team.
She is an expert negotiator, so you can feel secure in knowing she is going to get you the best deal or the highest and best price for your home.
She will ensure you have a fun and seamless transaction! I wouldn’t hesitate to have her sell my own house"
"Julie was great to work with on helping me find my very first home! She listened to what I was exactly looking for, she provided great insight on the current market and was always able to give me her honest opinion on a property I was looking to purchase. Overall, great experience and would recommend Julie to anyone else I know looking for a home in the South Metro Denver Area! Great agent A+"
"Julie is a wonderful Realtor to work with!! She is always looking out for what is best with her clients and making sure they are always informed and well taken care of. She is dedicated, hard working and organized. I would always recommend her to any of my clients."
"Julie just assisted us with the sale of our home in Castle Rock - the entire process from beginning to end was seamless! Not only was Julie there every step of the way, but PorchLight Real Estate went above and beyond from the professional help with staging our home to the magazine quality photos! We got well over our asking price (cash offer), with over ten offers in a short 48 hours, and I GUARANTEE that we never would have received the amazing offer without the help of Julie and the PorchLight team! If you are looking to purchase or sell a home your best decision would be to call Julie today!"
"Julie is amazing!! A true pleasure to work with. I came from out of state having never been to Colorado, she helped me find a house... no the perfect home for my family. I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs. You won't regret it!!"
