Julie is one of the best agents I have ever worked with. I have 20+ years in the homebuilding industry and have had the opportunity to work with many agents over the years. In dealing with most agents, 90% of the time the best recommendation they could come up with to sell a home was to “reduce your price”. That was not the case with Julie. She was a true advocate for me, the client. She was able to hold firm with our price when it came to offers from other agents by explaining to them that our home was something special and different from the other homes….she actually understands the concept of create value for the home she is selling. She did a way better job of holding our price than the “local expert realtor” in our neighborhood did for several of our neighbors who had listed with them. This was the first time I had used Julie but won’t be the last in both personal and business properties. She gets it!
All expectations met and exceeded!!!! I had the pleasure of working with Julie and it was truly a terrific experience. It’s difficult to “put perfection into words” however this would describe my experience completely! Julie is professional, detail oriented, possesses excellent marketing skills, always mindful of timelines, she is always quick to respond to calls/ emails/ texts. I would recommend Julie to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home, she will most definitely have your best interest in mind. I moved out of state and in the process of purchasing a new home often wished how very much I would have liked to had an agent that could have even begun to compare with the talent Julie has, she is truly a gem!!!!
Julie Stephens-Waidelich represented me in the sell of my home in Steiner Ranch (which sold in one day at my asking price), and finding and closing my new home lease in Highland Park West. Julie is an awesome agent, very knowledgable, smart, extremely responsive, on-top of details constantly, and cares for her clients way beyond the buy-sell process. I will undoubtably go with Julie for all my future real-estate needs in Austin. I highly recommend Julie and Nest Properties!
To say that my husband and I were pleased with our experience with Julie Stephens and Nest Properties is a vast understatement. Julie handled everything on the sale of our former home and purchase of our new home with professionalism and integrity throughout. We had a few hiccups (on the seller’s side during the purchase of the new home) and she maintained her professional and pleasant demeanor while making certain issues were taken care of correctly before closing. The fact that she was texting and emailing us regarding these issues on the day of her wedding shows just how committed she is to her clients! We so appreciated her advice and constant concern regarding our experience. We felt as if we were her only clients throughout the entire process. We have purchased and sold several homes since we’ve been married and I can say without a doubt that this was the most pleasant home selling/buying experience thus far because of Julie. We will most definitely utilize her services again in the future.
Julie, your talents and passions as a realtor, customer service provider, caretaker, professional in our community and genuine care and concern for our family’ well being are all such the ultimate package and gift. Thank you for all you have done for us. I wish I could rate you for more than a 10… For you have given us 110% during this entire process. We can not thank you enough! You are a gem!
The most important things to me when selling a house are availability, responsiveness, communication, and the approach to problem solving. I can’t remember any time recently when I have worked with any business, vendor, client, or otherwise who excelled in these areas as much as Julie did for us. When you know your agent has a number of other clients, yet you consistently feel as though you are her only client, you have a great agent. Julie is very responsive, and moves right into solutions-mode when faced with any issues or problems. I could go on and on, but the point is you will not regret partnering with Julie as an agent, I can promise you that.
I can’t recommend Nest and Julie Stephens highly enough! Julie truly cares about her clients and their best interests. She’s professional, organized, a good listener and a pleasure to work with.

We chose Julie Stephens because she is smart about the real estate market, a savvy negotiator and always fair. She met and exceeded our expectations. She listened carefully to what we wanted in a new home and was unbelievably patient in helping us search. She also did a great job helping us get all of the value possible out of the home we were selling – even in a tough market. Easy to work with, conscientious, responsive and effective – all the things you want in someone responsible for helping you navigate real estate.
