"Professional, prompt, good communication and marketing. Love the exposure, marketing plan, and research team."
Lorraine Howard was our agent and we can't thank her enough for her excellent assistance in helping us purchase our first home. Lorraine was very helpful in giving us advice and information we were unaware of as this was our first home buying experience. She was very responsive and quick to get us in to look at houses and make it through the entire process. Thank you!
"Kim was awesome and great to work with! I will definitely refer her to others who need any real estate needs!"
"I was privileged to have Billy Bjordlund for an agent. Without signing a contract, I previously worked, albeit brief, with two agents who were not with your group. So, I can confidently say that Billy was, hands down, the BEST agent I've ever had! He listened to what I wanted, matched houses to meet my needs and wants and, amazingly, lined up viewings in an unbelievable manner. I still cannot figure how he was able to coordinate so many tasks so perfectly! I really admire his organizational skills! He is an exceptional person. I'm thankful it worked out for me to know him. Now I will be referring anybody I know to him because I know he will do his best to find them a happy home... He did for me! "
"I was working nights, going to school and trying to find a house that would work for me. All while learning how to buy a house, as this was my first one. Julie changed her schedule countless times to suit my needs, explained things over and over to me when I needed clarification, and always asked for help when she was not 100% sure of the answer. I worked with another realtor before Julie and just felt it was too much for me to take on with my crazy schedule. After I found Julie she made it possible, and I will absolutely seek her back out the next time I want to buy or sell. I would recommend you do the same."
What an awesome team of professionals! The absolute best choice of companies you can work with for buying or selling your home! Never before have had such a quick and painless experience. The entire team is behind you and working diligently to accomplish your effort. Sold a home in less than 30 days for full asking! Doesn't get any better than that! From the initial meeting with my realtor Billy Bjorklund to the email and phone calls with the team, to the photos and finally to listing, the entire process was smooth and hiccup-free. They marketed the home and priced it just right--had a full offer in a week of the home going on the market. The team was always available and ready to answer questions, keeping me informed of any changes along the way. Do yourself a favor; if you're looking to buy or sell a home you wont get better service anywhere else. Go with the Blue Door Group and I promise you'll be glad you did!
"Billy was attentive, responsive and listened to our requests. He provided feedback, expertise and recommendation when needed. Our home sold quickly due to the efforts of Billy and the Blue Door Group."
"I have known Jodi for many years as a friend, and knew that when we decided to sell our house she was the only person/agent I wanted to have handle our listing. Jodi is very knowledgeable and detailed, and made selling our home of 20 plus years easy. I recommend Jodi to anyone wishing to sell their property using an agent that is trustworthy and is true to their word. Thank you Jodi for everything. We really appreciate it."
"Billy assisted us with the selling of our home in Pfafftown. We interviewed several agents before making our decision and he was by far the best choice we could have made. His knowledge of the market and area lead us to pricing our home just right that we received a full offer within four days. He was very helpful and always responsive to the numerous questions we had throughout the process. We would highly recommend him and his team to anyone considering selling a home soon!"
"Billy was super responsive and made every effort to get our home listed through various social media channels. I think BDG provided an all around positive selling atmosphere for our home. I will gladly recommend Blue Door Group and Billy! Thank you for your service!"
"Julie was always coming up with new ideas and marketing skills to get our house sold and was successful in doing so within a few weeks!! She knows the real estate market extremely well and worked hard to finalize all the steps in the process quickly. Julie was a pleasure to work with and her professionalism along the way made everything less stressful. Highly recommend Julie and her team at The Blue Door Group!"
"My sisters and I (all out of town/state) were selling our parents' home in Winston-Salem. Our initial realtor ended up hospitalized. Jodi stepped in, and I could not have been more grateful. We were in the middle of our first offer and I was quite concerned about the potential buyer and offer. She was able to immediately discuss options and suggested excellent negotiation options. Jodi is savvy. The final buyer's inspector brought up some extreme, incorrect items. Jodi was able to get a contractor there in a day who wrote up his opinion of the inspection items and related costs, which was invaluable. She also encouraged the buyer to have their own contractor come in - turned out to be an excellent strategy as it bought us a bit more time waiting for additional bank info, and that contractor substantiated what her contractor said. We were able to close the transaction at full listing price less a reasonable credit for inspection issues. This transaction was not simple given all three of us were out of state. She helped us through some confusion with the buyer's attorney's documents and ultimately made sure she had her managing realtor there to represent us at the closing when it changed and she was scheduled out of town. Jodi was a great partner in this process and I highly recommend her."
"My husband and I were stationed out of town and Julie made it work flawlessly. She was quick to send videos of all the houses we were interested in, and when it came to putting in an offer she had open lines of communication. Without her, we wouldn't have been able to find our dream home. I highly recommend Julie!"
"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."
"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.”
"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.”
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."
"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."
"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!"
"I am a inspired local property investor and from the beginning Billy has been a true joy to work with. He is always a pleasure to speak with and his knowledge of the area has been helpful engineering a blueprint to investing success locally. Billy is very energetic always keeping me in touch on possible investment properties that meets my profile requirements. Billy possesses the expertise I need to make the best informed decision with my investments that gives me the security I need. I look at Billy as a true business adviser and will continue to use his expertise moving forward. I recommend Billy because he is trustworthy, loyal, and responsive."
