Great Job Julie! "We can attest that selling your home and moving ranks as one of the most traumatic life events. Thankfully, we can also attest that the blessing in this for us is that Julie was with us every step of the way. She has infinite patience, exceptional knowledge and negotiation skills, tremendous energy, and an extensive, personal referral list (the best painter, general household repairman, and roofer were all referred to us by Julie). She was our compassionate and encouraging human constant in this whole new phase of our empty-nesting life - selling our home of 21 years, helping us (literally) pack for our downsizing move, then guiding us in the purchase of our new home. Julie is top-notch in every way and we are the first to recommend her to anyone selling or purchasing a home."
Great Job Julie! "We have been working with Julie Ratkus for 5 years, searching for our dream home. She has always been patient, understanding and accommodating in our search. We just loved working with her and would do so again in a heartbeat 💗"
~~I love Julie! She was the most efficient, lovely, well informed real estate agent I have ever had dealings with, and I have sold and bought 7 houses throughout my lifetime. Because I followed her advice, my house sold in less than two weeks. Julie is a jewel.

Julie is a great Realtor. She knows how to present herself and makes you feel at home when you are looking for a home. Excellent Realtor! She knows her job.
Julie is very hard working and goes the extra mile for her customers. We would rate Julie's service as excellent.
Julie is by far one of the most amazing people we have ever have the opportunity to work with. We are from out of state and she made the transition of purchasing a new home smooth and rewarding. Not only is she professional she treats you like family.
Julie Ratkus was a great realtor to work with. She is very knowledgeable, great to work with, and goes the extra mile to help you. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She spent many hours out of several months trying to help me find my perfect home. Julie took a lot of time researching and checking daily for new homes coming on the market. I could not have asked for better!
Julie sold my investment property in HighPoint, NC. Since I live in New Jersey, there were many details that I simply could not take care of. All the little details like arranging for lawn care service, interior painting and other small fix up items, all were handled by Julie as if it were her own house that she was selling. She helped me settle on a realistic target price, and offered advice when it was time to adjust. From the time I put it on the market to the closing, it was only about 5 weeks. I got what I thought was a very fair price. I was very grateful for her attention to detail, her "over and above" attitude, and her professionalism. I highly recommend Julie for your real estate transaction.
~~I recently moved to North Carolina from Michigan with my fiance Jeff. He grew up locally in Thomasville and was referred to Julie Ratkus by a friend. I highly recommend Julie if you're in the market to buy a home. She is always friendly and has a positive attitude. (Not to mention, she saved us thousands of dollars with her negotiating abilities)! Literally. She's awesome! Check her out.
~~Mrs. Julie recently helped my husband and I find and purchase our first home. She contacted me literally 10 minutes after I requested a viewing for a potential home. She was honest, personable, extremely helpful and prompt. She was our advocate every step of the way and never let us feel as if we were blindly walking through the process. She always thoroughly answered our (many) questions and never gave up on our seemingly hopeless search for a home. She was always happy to help and full of great suggestions. She was ALWAYS professional and available. It is safe to say that we now consider Mrs. Julie a dear family friend! I will most definitely be recommending her to anyone I know in search of, or selling their home.
~~Julie was a pleasure to work with. She listened to our wish list and helped us with any questions. She made good observations, and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to work with a caring, knowledgeable person.
~~We moved to the area from another state and Julie was extremely helpful in identifying options for housing. She worked days, nights and weekends to locate houses that fit the requirements we had given her. She paid great attention to detail and quickly developed and good understanding of our expectations, likes and dislikes.
Julie Ratkus is truly amazing! She has been very patient and understanding of my needs and wants with selling and buying. Her communication is prompt and professional. She went above and beyond for my family and I, and I'm grateful to have found her!
~~Julie Ratkus is simply amazing. We were in a nightmare situation when our first buyers backed out, and Julie came in and saved the day! She had us back under contract within a week (over Thanksgiving weekend, mind you) and patiently spent days, with our small children in tow, helping us find our dream home. We had stressful situations on both ends with buyers and sellers, including both closings the same day, and through it all, Julie remained calm, reassuring, available and professional. Our seller left our new house a mess, and Julie went to the store AFTER our closing, bought cleaning supplies, and spent over an hour cleaning with me before our movers came! She is unflaggingly positive and cheerful, and it is very evident that she loves what she does! Julie goes above and beyond and was a true delight to work with - I cannot imagine a better person to have helped us buy and sell our houses!
~~Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Julie Taylor Light-Ratkus. She has held our hand and helped us every step of the way with buying/selling our homes. I don't think we could have asked for a better realtor and we are so thankful that this experience led us to a life long friendship with you Julie! Thank you thank you thank you for our precious gifts. You are so thoughtful and kind! We will definitely put these things to use in our home and think of you every time we look at them!! If anyone is looking for a dedicated, loyal, HARD WORKING realtor.. Look no further; I have the person! 💜 THANK YOU!
~~Julie Ratkus Was recommended to us by another satisfied client of hers. And she was amazing as she listened to the parameters we had as to the type of house we were looking for and in the span of two days when we were in the triad (from out of town), Julie had shown us 20 houses - each one featuring some facet of the parameters we had shared with her. Her enthusiasm and her upbeat personality, made house hunting less of a chore and more of a delightful challenge. On the second day at the 18th house we saw, we both went OMG and Julie remarked that it was the first place that we had both been wowed with and that we might have found our new home. Suffice to say that she was correct and we now live in our new home that we love - thank you Julie! Julie also went beyond and above her duties as a realtor and took on requests from us way after the house has closed, like suggesting various tradespeople when we needed one. We have dealt with other realtors but none as professional nor as generous as Julie - think the fun and good car salesperson, who wasn't just out to make a buck and really cared that you got what you were looking for. If you need a good, caring realtor, you've found her in Julie. Oh and one last thing, her closing gift to us blew her out of the realm of just being a realtor, she is more friend than salesperson of real estate.
~~An awesome person to work with!!! I would most definitely recommend her if you are in the market for buying/selling a house or property. I had a great experience.
~~Julie was a blessing for my wife and I when we moved to North Carolina. We lived in the state of Georgia our entire lives, and during what was a very intense period in our lives ... my wife was 6 months pregnant with twins, I was in the midst of making a career change, and we were for the first time moving away from the Atlanta metro area and all of our immediate families ... Julie was there for us in multiple facets. Her level of professionalism, knowledge of the housing market, responsiveness, working all hours of the day regardless of what day of the week all 7 days, kind spirit, objective opinions, and overall facilitating the purchasing process through the entire period were all very critical in us making the transition smoothly. I can't say enough to compliment how great Julie is at what she does. And most of all, she is passionate about it. Like most homeowners, we were very critical in the home that we were looking to purchase. It had to be just "right", and we weren't willing to make any exceptions. She maintained patience, resilience, and overall professionalism throughout it all. And most importantly, my wife, I, and our twin toddlers are now living in a great home that we hope to raise our children in. Julie was instrumental in making our dream come to a reality. I highly recommend Julie as a very valuable resource for anyone that is a prospective buyer in the housing market. Frankly, if in fact our life circumstances change for any unforeseen reason in the future, we will go back to Julie to help us sell the very home that she helped us to purchase. Overall fantastic person, and fantastic professional.
~~Julie did a great job for us - posted really impressive photos of the house, will keep you informed, easy to work with and a great personality. Can compare her with the Energizer bunny !
Congratulations Julie! William Krise, an obvious raving fan, shared a very warm and thoughtful recommendation of you this morning! "Julie was a God send!! She was the most responsive, hardworking, and dedicated Agent I could have asked for. Ms. Julie was still working well into the night, and at one point even emailed me about progress on the house at 10:00 at night! I had to tell her a couple of times that she needed to remember to take care of herself too and her response was always the same," In my line of work were always working!" She was absolutely terrific in every way conceivable! There wasn't a question she didn't answer thoroughly and if she didn't know the answer right off, she had me an answer within the day. She was in constant communication with me throughout the process and I never had to question where she stood or who's side she was on. By far she has been the most professional real estate agent I have gotten to work with (and that's after firing a few!) If I ever sell the property hopefully she will be my listing agent, and when I buy another she'll definitely be my first call!! "
Congratulations Julie! Great Job!"I worked with Julie to sell my mom’s house and mine and then she helped me find and buy my lovely townhome that I just moved into. She came recommended to me and I understand why. Not only is she a professional but is so pleasant and easy to work with. She truly cares about her clients and works tirelessly to make the buying and and selling experience for them a simpler one. I can’t say enough good things about Julie and highly recommend her to anyone that may be considering buying or selling."
Congratulations Julie! Great Job once again! "Julie was great. She always made us feel that we were the only and most important customer, never too busy, answered every question and her role in the closing process was instrumental. A true professional."
Great Job Julie! "This is a very good company and I’m glad and happy for the service and professionalism provided. Thanks"

Great Job Julie! "Julie has helped us buy and sell houses multiple times and we cannot speak highly enough of her. She has endless patience and responds very quickly to any questions or concerns her clients have. She is positive and upbeat, but she's also a tough negotiator and thoroughly investigates each aspect of the home buying/selling process. Her experience in this field shows and we trust her opinions 100%. We cannot recommend Julie highly enough." Rebekah and Matthew Carlson
Always on top of things. Always quick to answer questions. We listed and were under contract in 15 days. She offered the name of a lender. We received a better rate.

Great Job Julie! "Julie is wonderful. She helped my fiance' and I buy our first home. She understood that we were new to this process and was extremely helpful every step of the way.

~~Julie is amazing! She truly went above and beyond. She responded to my messages and worked for me late in the evening and on the weekends. She made the entire process a breeze. Who would have thought buying a home was an easy process? But with Julie, it was! She is truly amazing! Loved, loved, loved working with her!
Great Job Julie! "Julie Ratkus was great to work with as both our selling and buying agent. Julie provided lots of information during both the selling of our home and the purchase of a new home. Julie was quick to respond, in detail, to any questions we had and follow-up as needed. She was very knowledgeable about the market. Julie was patient and available during the whole process and we could not have been happier with our experience. We felt that Julie was on "our side" during every step of the process. We will be recommending Julie to anyone interested in selling/moving."
Julie Ratkus acted as a selling and buying agent for our family and we could not have been happier with our experience. Julie was knowledgeable about the market conditions, the buying and selling process and seemed to genuinely care about helping us make good decisions throughout the entire process. We have already and will continue to recommend Julie to anyone interested in selling or buying.
