Julie Gifford has been successfully marketing properties and matching homes and land to buyers since 1999 in the Clemson, SC and lake areas of Oconee County, SC & Pickens County, SC. Her strong negotiating background comes from her Bachelor's degree in Managerial Accounting and her 8 year Management experience in Industry. Julie loves helping people and has committed to furthering her Real Estate education by being an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR); this means she has the additional knowledge to bring a Buyer to the closing table with the best terms and sales price!There are over 1700 licensed Real estate agents in the Oconee/Pickens/Anderson County market, but would you want just anyone marketing the most valuable asset you own-- your home? Over the years, Mrs. Gifford invested in herself with a higher level of Real Estate education to get the business "edge" needed to market your property. She completed and graduated with the Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) designation from the S.C. Association of Realtors. South Carolina is currently not a mandatory "Broker" state-- meaning an agent is not required to complete an additional 60 hours in Real Estate business, ethics, and complicated agency relationships--- But Julie Gifford has done this and passed the state's stringent testing requirements to become a Broker-in-Charge.
In mid 2008, she teamed up with her current business partner/ co-owner Sharalyn Kluke to form their own company "Got Real Estate, LLC". In the Oconee/Pickens area-- their marketing concept of "Full Service/One Listing Price" is a more updated Real Estate business model than typically used in this area. It serves to help so many people who are in a poor equity situation with their homes, while not "punishing" those with higher priced properties with a percentage-based listing commission. Sharalyn and Julie hope that by saving their Seller's money at the closing table, they will be "saving" Buyer's as well: properties can be listed closer to their true market value-- which in turn is passed on to the Buyer! You can read the "Company Philosophy" link to learn more on www.GotReal1st.com . Other Agents and Brokers enjoy working with Mrs. Gifford and Mrs. Kluke because of their knowledge and ethics. Their business model offers the same competitive Buyer's Agents percentage commissions their comrades don't mind working for.
