Buying ranches, farms or just open property is significantly different than purchasing residential property. There are many different variables that need to be understood and evaluated. Property access, easements, water quality, zoning, land owner tags and fencing are just a few of aspects that need to be considered. Fortunately you do not need to be knowledgeable in all these areas if you work with Julie Mansfield Smith. I wholeheartedly endorse Julie for anyone looking to buy or sell property in Eastern Oregon. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable but her follow through and response time are excellent. Also I found Julie as concerned about the people and the process as she was the sale. She will continue to answer questions and provide input even after the sale is over. Outstanding service!

Julie Mansfield Smith is a true gem. Whether you are buying or selling, Julie's expertise, insight, integrity, and honesty are an asset to your team. Her knowledge of the rural lands she represents, shines through in her passion for helping people find their dream piece of property. We are so thankful, and fortunate that we found a realtor that truly cares about her clients, community and the great outdoors!

There are few business transactions in which the journey is as enjoyable as the destination; however, endeavoring to purchase land in eastern Oregon under Julie's watch was one such occasion. Having been through the process, we would suggest that any potential buyers be aware that eastern Oregon is a unique geographic area with its own particular tax and zoning regulations, as well as social and political issues that can have an impact on purchasing property. What Julie has to offer her clients is more than just getting the right signatures on a contract to close. She is also an educator and a matchmaker --in our particular case she was able to put us in touch with all the right people to address all the right issues--from adjoining land owners to the tax assessor --to make us feel very reassured and confident about our purchase. As the buyers, we were also happy to see that she demonstrated a sincere, fair and equitable appreciation for what was in the best interest of the sellers. If we go through this process again in the future, either as buyer or seller, we would definitely want Julie's expertise and counsel on our side. We recommend her without reservation!

Land transactions often have obstacles in the path to closing. A good realtor like Julie can help the buyer and seller navigate those challenges and keep the path to closing on track. It was a pleasure working with her on our land purchase. She is knowledgeable, but most importantly trustworthy. I would recommend her to anyone looking for that perfect piece of Eastern Oregon property!

Working closely with Julie was a pleasure in our transaction ...a beautiful and peaceful property. There were many hurdles to climb over ...however Julie used her experience and perseverance to make a dream property come true. She works hard to make sure everyone is treated fairly and honestly...which is a rare trait these days. She showed us that friendship starts with kindness...and we will remain friends from here on. Thank you...Julie!

They always say things happen for a reason. After a couple years of self searching for a parcel of land to enjoy, hunt and possibly build a home on, I reached out to a few brokers to get serious. After talking to Julie and going through what I wanted she really understood what I was looking for and even better she understood my long term goals. After tossing around a few parcels she suggested I check out a home plus acreage that was very unique; which I was hesitant about. Boy was she right, a once in a lifetime deal and a house exactly how I would’ve wanted to build it! She was amazing to work with from beginning to end and even after! Glad to have her as a friend, realtor and neighbor.

Julie sold our home in a very short time. We considered this quite a feat due to our remote rural location. She was inspired by our home’s uniqueness and shared her exuberance with potential buyers which we feel is part of her magic. Generous with her time, Julie was consistently diligent with all the details from listing to selling. She produces results, though best of all her qualities is that she cares, continuing a friendship and correspondence with us well after our move.

Just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for all your work and persistence to make this sale finally happen. We had so many hurdles to get over.... however, we went out there last weekend, and our two daughters loved it! They loved swimming in the river, floating down through the riffles, and exploring about the property. So we can imagine many happy years enjoying our Hunter Creek Heaven. It was great working with you, and if I know of anyone looking to buy or sell over that way in the future, I will definitely send them your way!

I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to have Julie Mansfield Smith represent me in the sale of my property. After living on the ranch for 40 years, it was a hard decision to put the place up for sale. My husband and I had put our life’s blood into making the improvements through the years, and we were very proud of what we had accomplished. But, when my husband started having health problems, there was no way that we could get the work done that was required. Our decision to sell was difficult, to say the least. Julie was very understanding about our feelings for the place and was always looking out for our best interests. Her attention to detail was amazing! Through all of the paperwork and marketing of the property, Julie was not only very professional, but a good friend. When the sale finally closed, we closed a chapter in our lives. But our friendship with Julie and her husband will continue for a long time.

Julie, we just wanted to send a note thanking you for all the hard work and patience in helping my wife and I find our dream property. Your knowledge of Grant County and the ability to understand our needs (even though we were not sure ourselves) was refreshing in dealing with these types of “adventures.” During our visits to several properties with you we felt very comfortable with the entire process due to your complete knowledge of each property, the positive and the negatives, and helping us make an informed decision on what would suit our needs and desires best. Of the several real estate transactions we have done, this truly was the easiest of all. From the time of our first meeting to the subsequent trips and closing, it really was refreshing to have someone go the extra steps to help us. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the future.

If you are looking for a land broker you can’t go wrong with Julie Mansfield Smith. Of all the brokers we dealt with this year, she was the most helpful and reliable. She bent over backwards to help us find an awesome piece of property. I highly recommend her for all your rural real estate needs.

My husband and I had the immense pleasure of working with Julie Mansfield Smith in our acquisition of our property in Kimberly, OR. We worked with Julie for five months in our land research and purchase throughout which she proved to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and supportive. Julie exhibited integrity and endless patience in a process which proved at times to be at times frustrating and drawn out, putting forth great energy and a sense of personal service during this time, whatever the outcome. Julie was also simply fun and enjoyable to work with. We have had a few real estate transactions in the Northwest in the past few years, and Julie has been one of the top real estate brokers with whom we have worked. We look forward to maintaining a personal relationship with her in the future, and will certainly use her services again should the need arise. In fact, we would recommend her to anyone in need of a highly competent land broker with appreciation for a job well done.
