Our agent Billy Bjorklund was a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend him.
"We have worked with at least 14 realtors as we have moved many times. Julie, by far, was the best realtor we have worked with. She followed up/checked in with us on a regular basis. We worked strategies together. Julie came up with several different ideas on how to market our home. We feel like Julie gave 200% on getting our home sold!"
“We had a great experience with Jodi and her team at The Blue Door Group. They were patient, creative and very active, provided varied promotions, developed solid traffic, gave valuable feedback … And they sold the house! I highly recommend the Blue Door Group!”
“As you begin to consider and compare the many professionals that could be your representative realtor, we wanted to write this to express our highest recommendation for our Realtor, Julie Aites Campbell.
We encourage you to speak with Julie before making any decisions. We feel that she was an excellent representative for us as first-time home buyers, who began the process with virtually no knowledge of home buying procedures. We feel she made the process incredibly smooth and painless.
Being first-time home buyers, Julie demonstrated to us that she possesses all of the attributes necessary to be an excellent Realtor, able to guide us, the uninitiated, through the process. She verified her capabilities and knowledge by consistently providing us with exceptional guidance. Julie is very easy to get in contact with, incredibly quick to respond to questions or concerns. She provided thorough research and fact gathering on a number of properties we were interested in. She provided us with detailed information to include: property maps, utilities usage figures, comparable home values of nearby properties and many other details vital to our decision making. She always has the most current and important information (that she passes directly to you), is very patient with her clients (especially since we had a multitude of questions, some of which were technical in nature). Particularly impressive, she even provided us with access to technology such as apps to assist us in our search.
Julie is both professional and personable. She takes pride in doing a thorough job to assist her clients in many ways. In our particular case as first-time home buyers, with a constant barrage of questions and concerns, she handled our needs with grace and made the entire process go as smoothly as we could have hoped for.
It would be hard to envision anyone in this profession doing a job superior to Julie. It is also almost impossible to envision a client of hers being anything but delighted in choosing to work with her. We highly recommend her, and feel that she was the best choice of realtor that we could have made to handle our needs."

“We were down on our luck and we came across Christy Armstrong. She immediately gave us her full attention when we told her our situation and was very pleasant and helpful to work with. We only had a few weeks to find a home and with her knowledge and good relationships with other contacts. She found us a home, lender and handled all the inspections. One thing that I really love about her is she is passionate about her job and she makes sure you are always taken care of no matter what the situation is. I would recommend her over and over again.”
~Matt and Joey Staten
"I am a first time home buyer and I've heard all the scary stories about buying a house (the stress of it). I can honestly say, I have no scary stories to tell. Billy has made this an exciting, fun, stress free experience for me. He's a very good listener and have a very good memory. He remembered everything I said I was looking for, even when I forgot what I was looking for. Billy kept me updated every step of the way. I am so honored of having the pleasure of Billy Bjorklund seeing me through an exciting, fun, life changing and pleasurable experience in my life, that I'll never forget. Thank you Billy for being there!"
“I would like to take this time to thank Kim for the wonderful experience she provided us in regards to selling and buying a new home. This was our first time selling a home and the task seemed overwhelming. Kim came in and streamlined the whole process with a checklist of items to complete and a timeline as to when everything would take place. Sure enough our home was under contract within the first week and we have Kim to thank for that. She went above and beyond her duties as our realtor and made sure we were comfortable through the whole process. When purchasing our second home the task seemed daunting because being prior homeowners we had a better idea of things we wanted. Kim took on our requests head on and helped us realize what was really important to us. She is extremely professional and sincere. She takes every experience personally and wants to make sure her clients are happy. We are extremely happy with our new home and with the experience of working with Kim. I recommend her to all my clients and friends when I hear that they are interested in moving. Thank you Kim!!!“
“So glad that we decided to go with the Blue Door Group. Elizabeth was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. This was our first home buying experience and it could not have gone any smoother. We will definitely use the group again in the future!”
“If you are thinking about listing your home and not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Jodi Tate and the Blue Door Group. While it might not seem that the agent matters, let me tell you—it does!
We listed our home with two other agents before her. They both were top producers, but they used the same strategy they used with every other client…and they both panicked when a quick sale didn’t happen. Neither was able to complete the sale.
This was a house sale that was complicated by the fact that we were living in Iowa—a time zone and six states away. This did not faze Jodi and she was able to adapt to our needs. She went out of her way to communicate and kept us up-to-date on all activity and feedback. I depended on Jodi to keep the connection alive and she did!
Jodi was patient. She developed a strategy and gave wise counsel along the way. She tweaked the plan as we went along and she was able to complete the sale. Most importantly, she sold our home for more than my prior agents thought possible.
Her level of expertise ranges from her extensive geographic knowledge of the Winston Salem market, the incredible network of contacts she has built over the years and structural building knowledge. She has an eye for detail and a strong aesthetic quality and will always have your best interest at the fore front.
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.
If you want a listing in the MLS and a sign in the yard, you can get that anywhere. If you want a trusted partner, you want Jodi!"

“Working with Julie has a been a joy. We are first time home buyers so we really did not know much about the process. She was always willing to explain anything we had issues with and my husband had quite a bit of questions. She never made us feel as if we were asking silly question at all during the process. She was extremely punctual and always took the extra step to look out for our best interest.”
“Christy has been amazing to work with! We meet with several realtors prior to meeting Christy and none of them took charge of the situation like she did. She said she would find us what we were looking for and she did! She followed through with everything she said she would do and took the stress out of buying a home. We loved working with Christy, she made everything super easy. I think your company is lucky to have her!!”
~Matthew & Jamie Russell
"I would recommend Billy to anyone I know. He really captured and took to heart the needs and wants we were looking for in a home for our family. He helped us buy our very first home and with our second home he and his team were great and we closed on both homes the same day! The knowledge and expertise Billy had was amazing. He was very patient with us and answered every question down to the last detail in a timely manner. I'd highly recommend him to someone looking to buy or sell a home!"
"Kim will be an advocate for you during this transition of moving/selling. Her level of professionalism and knowledge of marketing is impeccable. I highly recommend using Kim as your agent."
“We interviewed Jodi Tate and the Blue Door Group on a Friday evening about selling our home in Arbor Run. They came in prepared with all the research I hoped for, but wasn’t sure I’d get this first interview.
Jodi shared a custom marketing plan with us that fit our timeline and she was not intimidated to also offer suggestions on how to get our property ready for market. I was looking for a successful business minded approach to selling this property and I found it with the Blue Door Group! We did not interview another team after our meeting and we had a sold sign in the front yard in 45 days! The Blue Door Group really listened and implemented a different marketing strategy that worked. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the plan, the communication and the results.”
“I referred Julie A. Campbell to assist a family member in selling a condo in Winston Salem. She has done a wonderful job. She’s very personal and professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering selling their property in the Triad Area.”
~Susan Fox Zongker
“It was a pleasure working with her as we found our new home in a new city all through her assistance and guidance. Christy is very accessible, positive, and knowledgeable and gives her 100 percent throughout the process. When we found the right home for our family, Christy helped us close the deal, negotiate favorable terms, and was there to assist us until we had the keys in our hand! We would highly recommend Christy to anyone interested in purchasing house in the area.”

My name is Patricia A. and I was very fortunate to have Billy Bjorklund as my real state agent.
I contact him asking and explaining him what I was looking for, he immediately respond at me and did a lot of research of the area where I was interested. He came with the information and pictures of houses and took all his time to showed me the all the properties understanding my real needs and pointing the pros and cons in such an honest way.
He is an expertise have tons of experience regarding pricing and repair cost. I feel comfortable with the fact that he will succeed in dealing effectively and honestly with the negotiation involved; because he is really on top on every detail. Thank you Billy."
"We moved to Winston Salem, NC about a 1.5 yrs ago. (we do this a lot, as we have lived in IL, FL, Germany, TX and CA in the last 10 yrs). The first 6+ months, we had rented a home so that we could focus on learning about the new area and find an area and neighborhood that fit our needs. Jodi was not our first realtor here, and we were referred to her by our realtor from Chicago, and were VERY, did I say VERY, pleased to find her. Jodi showed us a TON of homes over a 6 month time period, so needless to say, she has the patience of a saint. Jodi is also a very good listener, as she would make sure we would keep to "our home requirements list". There were many times that she would point out that we were not looking at a house that fit our needs and she would keep us on track, when we would get dazed by bells& whistles or the newness of the wrong house for us. Experienced, knowledgable, and friendly are how I would describe Jodi. She always went out of her way (Picking us up, having snacks in the car for kids, presenting information homes or areas without asking, calling contractors, etc) throughout the entire real estate process and I would highly recommend Jodi and her team to anyone in the area looking for a realtor. She is an huge asset to the real estate industry in WS and made the process very pleasurable for us."
"After working with several agents that were not good fits for us, we had become very frustrated in our home search. We took a break, as we had grown to feel like we were doing more searching that our agents were. Someone recommended Christy to us, and we could not have been more pleased! Christy took the time to really get to know us and find out everything we were looking for in a home, including our style. She went as far as to set up a Pinterest board for me to share ideas of things I had envisioned with her. She often would go look at homes ahead of us, so that she could get an idea if it was even worth our time. She was spot on every single time! Due to our busy schedules, we would sometimes find homes and needed to view them on a short notice. Christy would always make sure that she or one of her associates could be available to help show a home when we needed it. When it was looking like we wouldn't be able to find what we were looking for, Christy went out of her way to arrange a meeting with a builder whose plans and style was aligned with ours. We were very close to deciding to build, when we stumbled upon a house we had eyes on for a while, but was under contract. Christy was able to notice the minute the house was no longer under contract and we jumped on it that night. We toured the home that next morning, fell in love and immediately put in an offer. It was good thing we moved so quickly, as three more offers came in after ours! Ultimately we were able to buy our dream home and could not be more happy. We cannot thank Christy enough for her expertise in helping us find the home of our dreams, and for helping us navigate through all of the negotiations, inspections and everything else. She is the best!"
"I would highly recommend Billy to anyone wanting to purchase or sell a home. He is extremely knowledgeable about real estate and what it takes to do his job. When our house was listed, we immediately had showings, several a week until the very end. He sold our house, just as promised. He worked with us and we came out of the experience with everything we had asked for. I could not have asked for a nicer or more understanding Realtor than Billy Bjorklund. He will be the first person I will call if anything real estate related is ever needed."
"My wife and I recently worked with Jodi Tate when we moved back to North Carolina after living in Nevada for eight years. When we began focusing on the Winston-Salem area to purchase our new home, we were referred to Jodi. She was great to work with. Her knowledge of the local real estate market and neighborhoods was extensive. She was patient, understanding and easy to work with. She was an excellent facilitator and mediator once we began the purchase process. During the process she was a catalyst in keeping lines of communication going between the various parties involved in the financing process. She could also light a fire when needed in the right area when part of that process seemed to bog down. Her husband and colleague Henry was specifically knowledgeable of construction and maintenance and was able to answer some specific questions regarding maintenance and construction of the home we purchased. We would strongly recommend Jodi and the Blue Door Group for any real estate concerns in the Triad area."
"Christy was absolutely wonderful! She has tremendous knowledge of the area, and was very responsive to any questions our family had. Being first-time homebuyers, Christy clearly explained each step in the home-buying process. I would definitely recommend working with Christy whether you're buying or selling your home."
"I have just started using Billy to look for some houses. He has been great at helping to locate options, research my questions/houses, and take us around to check out the houses. He is very helpful, great at providing other contacts when needed, and not pushy at at all. We have not put in an offer yet so I have not experienced his negotiation skills. I would definately recommend Billy to someone beginning their house search."
"Jodi was very knowledgeable and professional with our listing. She gave great advise on "staging" and recommendations on how to show the house in the best possible way. Her marketing of our home was top-notch and she was always open to our questions. She gave us realistic pricing options based on thorough research of the market and competition. I would recommend Jodi Lee Tate and her team if you are looking for a listing agent who works hard to market and sell your home!"
