Reviews of Hottel Real Estate Service

Selling and Buying at the same time ~ Helping with life Transitions! We love it!

After two major realestate companies were unable to sell our Antique home, we needed a fresh approach. Julie Marion to the rescue. There's an enormous difference between liking your job and having a passion for it. Julie's passion is real and reflected in every aspect of her realestate transactions. In three months our home was sold. Yes in the middle our worst winter ever. Time to find a new place to call home. Julie Marion to the rescue....again. Our desire to live near the ocean became clearer with every viewing, open house etc. Julie traveled and searched with us in another part of the State ..........and then the unexpected happened. A reasonably priced property with little yard to maintain, a studio, great space, light, and near the ocean came available. Due to the connection of matches Julie programed for us this property was viewed online Friday, seen on Sun & Mon with an offer. Yes it takes a special broker to listen, comprehend, and act in your best interest. This broker is Julie Marion! Her passion for real estate combined with extensive background in urban planning gives her tools to get the job done and done right. What are you waiting, email or visit her in her office...don't miss the opportunity to find your dream....

During our first meeting, Julie showed us a very professional PowerPoint slide about herself and her company, why she is doing different in the business. We were immediately impressed with her calm and friendly personality. Julie represented us while buying a condo in Arlington MA. In the very competitive market, multiple offers are normal. On our first offer, we were one of the 21 bidders. We were terrified of the situation, didn’t’ know how to deal with the fast-moving, low inventory market. Julie devised plans to help us come up with a strong offer in our second bid, while we were not even the top priced offer. It was our first time to deal with condo. We were overwhelmed with complicated condo document, not mentioning this newly converted condo. Julie went to every details of the document and worked with attorney to get things straighten out for our best benefit. Julie was available to us day and night through the entire process. She guided us through every step, she is also respectful of our comfort level and never push us. She kept on us about all of our deadlines, documents to be signed. She is very tech savvy. Her use of technology including email, text message, marketing websites, Dotloop, Showtime was a real advantage in keeping the sale process on a timely track. Thanks to Julie that we had a very smooth buying experience. I would definitely recommend Julie to friends and family. Wen He ~ Summer of 2015

Happy Clients

Julie Marion and her Associate, Peter Olson, provided outstanding service. Our property was unique, dating from 1740, and comparables are virtually non-existent. Never-the-less, they arrived at a competitive price that resulted in an "as-is" contract, within two months, for about 92 percent of the asking price. Peter Olson was present during every showing and gave us immediate feedback on the impressions of the prospective buyers. He provided sound advice during the negotiation process for us and his discussions with the ultimate buyer were instrumental in effecting the sale. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie Marion and Peter Olson to anyone.

Julie provided me with great service in the sale of my condo in Waltham. She gave me great advice when getting the house ready for sale. And she spruced the house up so that it showed even better. Julie kept me well-informed about the home viewings and represented my interests very well. Once an offer was received, she guided me through the negotiation process, the inspection and right through to the close. Julie made the stress of selling my home much more tolerable!!
Mike Farrell ~ Fall 2012

Julie sold my home in 2012. Met with a variety of agents before listing with Hottel Real Estate. Julie and her experienced agents offer outstanding knowledge of the market, advice, and service, combined with the most competitive seller's fees. Better services than the full priced brokers (OVER priced brokers), at huge savings for the seller. The "do it yourself" websites are cheap but won't get the job done, the big name agencies have outrageous seller's fees. Hottel Real Estate has a great spot in the market, I highly recommend!

First Time Home Buyers

Julie helped my husband and me through the process of buying our first house in Concord last year. She was patient and honest, allowing us to learn and make our own observations but also ready to offer her own opinions when needed and wanted. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about all the towns we were interested in, and she helped us negotiate several offers in this tough, competitive market. She also made herself available to look at every house that interested us together. Overall, she has such a nice mix of being friendly and approachable but also tough when it's needed. Finally, she has continued to make herself available to us in the year since our purchase with recommendations for local work-people. Julie is a great agent and partner for anyone searching for a home! A. Faulk ~ Summer 2014

As first time homebuyers, we felt Julie guided us every step of the way. She made sure we understood everything clearly by bringing us not only the comps of the homes sold in the area we wanted, but she also brought documents with figures so we could see what we would pay in the long run. This was extremely helpful. Julie is trustworthy and negotiated a great deal for us. We would highly recommend Julie as she worked hard at getting us the home we wanted. Miriam ~ Winter 2013

My husband and I have nothing but GOOD stuff to say about Julie she was incredible.....She made buying our first house the most easiest and memorable experience we could ever ask for ...and we will DEFINITELY be using her again!
Michelle Elder ~ Winter 2013

Julie, made a very difficult transaction possible. I found a home on Zillow that I thought was on the market. It was, but only technically. The seller and the seller's agent had multiple outstanding permit issues with the town and was unable or unwilling to resolve them. Not surprisingly, the lawyers were of no help whatsoever. It was only Julie's knowledge of ALL aspects of real estate transaction AND town government that allowed us to close this deal. In our country's post real estate debacle environment, I am convinced that this type of transaction will become more and more common and it will be essential that a buyer have a knowledgeable person who is motivated to close the transaction like Julie on their team.

It is my privilege to recommend Julie Marion. When relocating to the Northwest region of Boston, I was attracted to Julie's stand-out website: Of particular benefit to us was her section that provided community information for each of the towns we happened to be interested in. I called Julie with a few questions and before I knew it, she was driving us from town to town, describing the various features and characteristics of each community, listening closely as we described our ideal home and offering her advice and recommendations. While searching for property over the next couple months, Julie proved to be the consummate real estate professional: knowledgeable, organized, confident, determined, positive, extremely creative and bright, and highly ethical. Maintaining her professionalism at all times, best yet, Julie is also gracious and genuine -- an altogether great person. It was during the actual buying process, however, that Julie's more hidden talents were revealed -- expertise invaluable to our unusual find. On top of her substantial real estate experience, Julie also has a degree in Historic Preservation, a wonderful background for this area of the country where antique homes are treasured and still quite common. What's more, Julie happens to be a former Town Planner. So in addition to what everyone hopes for: a smooth, uneventful purchase and sale, Julie can also help you with just about any outside-the-box issue that may come your way, understanding zoning and development issues as few real estate agents can; never hesitating to offer advice for dealing with city codes and regulations; and, when helpful, even speaking to Town Hall personnel on your behalf. At all times I knew I had someone on my side, as Julie again and again proved she was with us each step of the way through an exciting and extremely successful transaction. Thank you, Julie, for taking such care with my family's future -- I am ever grateful!

If you feel ready to invest in the Greater Boston Area in either a primary or in a secondary residence, you will need to take your time to evaluate the local market thoroughly in order to take the most informed decision. In that case, you absolutely need the dedication and knowledge of a diligent partner who will deliver to you the relevant range of options that will fit your specific needs. In our experience, Julie Marion is the business partner that has delivered on these criteria. We strongly advise you to benefit of Julie’s expertise and knowledge of the area so that you will acquire the property that was made for you.
Manuel X Duval ~ Summer 2013

Julie was the perfect agent for us as a first time home buyer. We were really thankful that we had someone as trustworthy and knowledgeable as Julie to guide us through the entire process. The first time my wife and I spoke with Julie she understood our needs and was able to quickly put together listings to show us. She provided us a packet of information that illustrated the key steps of the home buying process. This made it easy to plan such things as when to contact the bank, the home inspector, etc. As our needs changed Julie was so flexible and many times would make herself available at odd hours as I work an imperfect schedule. It was obvious Julie takes great pride in her work and that she takes her job very seriously. As professional as Julie is we had a lot of fun working with her. She's very easy to get along with. Many times, during the process Julie went above and beyond to help us. When we finally found the home we decided on, Julie went to the town hall for us to pull permits and collect other important information. Not only was this a huge time-saver for me but it also wasn't something I would have thought of doing myself. My wife and I have already agreed that we will call Julie when we are ready to buy our next home.

Best buyer agent you can get. I have achieved a good buy through her. answered my calls all the times, negotiated on my behalf even in tougher times. Best of all she knew my circumstances and acted like she was buying for herself. Thank you very much Julie and good luck!
Salwa ~ Spring 2013

Julie Marion helped me find my first apartment. She took the time to find out what I was looking for and did an amazing job in showing me several apartments with the aspects I was looking for. I was very impressed with the way she not only made the searching process as stress free as possible but also how hard she worked once I found the apartment I wanted to help me with any and all paper work. I highly recommend Julie she will be there from the beginning till the end and was an absolute pleasure to work with.
Hugo Bertrand ~ Fall 2012

What can I say about Julie? She's a wonderful, caring individual that goes above and beyond for her clients. We've worked with Julie many times over the past 7 years negotiating rental properties, purchasing a home and purchasing a business property. Julie always took the time to explain everything and bargain with sellers to get us the best deal. She even helped represent my business at a town meeting, something any other realtor probably wouldn't do. Without Julie, my business would not have grown to what it is today. I would definitely recommend Julie to anyone looking to buy, sell or rent and I will definitely be calling her again when we begin looking for our new home. Thanks Julie for all your hard work!
The Brandts ~ 2007, 2012, 2014

Julie helped us with the purchase of our first home. We did not know a great deal about the process but working with Julie made it very easy. We are very happy with our home and the service we received!
J. Blundell ~ Summer 2012

Julie provided superior service, advice, and help with buying and renting out our town house. Her advice was always very helpful, and she was always willing to go above and beyond to help us. Highly, highly recommended!
Katherine Rye Jewell~ Fall,2009 Spring 2011

We went with Hottel Real Estate because the percent of the sale price that goes to the realtors was significantly lower. This gave us the best return on our home investment. In addition, our home was an older home and needed the right buyer. This realty company understood that and showed it beautifully. The price was set on the home’s value and was not inflated; therefore received lots of looks early and often. This is an honest and ethical realty company I would highly recommend them.
George and Peg Moore~ Spring 2012

Julie helped us sell our previous home and buy our new home! Despite the sellers going through a divorce, numerous home improvements needed, failed home inspection, failed Title V septic, a tough mortgage process, and slow attorneys...Julie helped us achieve the goal of obtaining our dream home. When others told us multiple times that the deal was dead, Julie kept fighting for us and found ways to keep it alive until the home was ours. Thanks, Julie!
James Desrosiers ~ Summer 2009, Fall 2009

I have worked with Julie for more than 5 years and seen her support the town of Groton with a caring attitude. Julie is a hard-working professional who puts the client's needs at the top of the list. She works long and hard hours to make sure her client gets what he/she is looking for.
