I have seen a lot of agents come and go in the 32 years I have been a home builder and developer. The outstanding agents are the few who understand that the service they provide to their clients is the true key to success. Most agents work hard to get a listing then lay back waiting for the phone to ring. Not Julie Prudden. She has impressed me with developing marketing materials, providing comparable sales to justify our pricing, giving me feed back on each showing and being honest with me if she thinks I'm off base. Behind the scene, Julie is well known, has earned the respect and is well liked by other Real Estate professionals. The best testimonial I can give, Julie Prudden is who I call to sell my property.

Julie Prudden was a very pleasant surprise. This was my first home purchase and I did not know what to expect. Julie made the process easy and fun. She is extremely diligent, straight-forward and knowledgeable. Julie would send me updates regularly and was very easy to contact. She gave me her honest opinion of the homes we looked through, whether good or bad, and was not out to make a quick sale. She truly enjoys her job and wants you to be happy and comfortable with your purchase. I was very impressed with Julie and highly recommend her, you will not be let down!John Molle, Jr.
Julie’s expertise turned our exhausted self-search for a house into an enjoyable and organized pursuit of a home. With her experience and professional networking, we found the home that met both our needs and wants. Julie listened to us and intuitively pointed us to the right neighborhoods, styles, and functions of homes that matched our personalities. Julie was truly a life coach, as she helped us navigate the largest purchase we ever had or will make. Even in a ‘buyers’ market,’ there are many obstacles a buyer faces; but Julie was always a step ahead advocating for us and making sure the process was as smooth as possible. We will forever be grateful and recommend her to anyone that is looking for an outstanding real estate agent.

Our decision to move was after much thought and several years of waiting. When we finally decided the time was right, we were just so grateful that our realtor was Julie Prudden. We found Julie through a recommendation and soon realized just how good at her job she really was. We needed help selling our house for the right price; it sold in 2 days. We needed help finding a lender; she led us to a lender who could understand and fight for a self-employed family. We needed to be educated on what our budget could really afford; she patiently showed us EVERYTHING available. The house we wanted required a special 203K loan to make it happen. We needed help putting an offer together that considered multiple contractor bids included in the price. She helped make this emotional process fun.
Julie was there to help us through every step and not one step was simple. We would recommend Julie Prudden to anyone. She is an excellent, service oriented, hard working, professional who knows the real estate business.
Tyler and Trisha Simpson,
Reaching our journey's end led us to many unexpected turns and detours i.e., environment issues, mold, bank takeover, lack of cooperation, etc., No matter the challenge or issue, from day one, you worked unknown hours, sent endless emails, provided support and, no matter the time of day, kept me informed every step of the way. Throughout the entire process, you never waivered in your professionalism, perseverance, encouragement, and positive attitude. To say you went the extra mile is an understatement.
I have told many people about the experience. You were a blessing. I am very fortunate to have followed through on my friend's recommendation. Should life's events present me with the need for a realtor, I'll be calling.
It has been a privilege to work with you. Thank you for everthing.
Coming highly recommended to us by our friends, you have worked so hard selling Jim’s condo in Overland Park and securing a wonderful home in Lee's Summit for us and our family. Not just any house – but a truly wonderful home.
Through what can be a roller coaster ride of qualifying for loans, the mortgage process and the responding to all our e-mails and phone calls, you were there for us and you gave us excellent service and became our friend and someone we greatly admire as well.
You really have a gift of working with people and the knowledge and background f buying and selling homes is what makes you stellar in this market and economy. The circle goes on as we have since forwarded your name and contact information to another person whom we overhead saying “I’m looking to sell my house and for a good agent”. Jim and I just looked at each other and said JULIE PRUDDEN! May all those who have the opportunity to work with you be as blessed as Jim and I.

Julie has a great ability to interpret what the client is looking for and find the homes which meet those criteria. She follows through and is thorough. We have bought and sold numerous homes and our experience with Julie was one of the best we have ever had. We will definitely use her again!

As an executive with a hectic travel schedule and business priorities that require my constant attention, I look for a high level of service, competence, and capability inside my company as well as in services I use personally. When it comes to finding a real estate agent who meets a high level of excellence for finding investment properties as well as a personal residence, Julie Prudden is the one I turn to. Julie has proven that she has a unique ability to assess my investment criteria, locate many properties meeting the requirements, and then help navigate the process with effectiveness and efficiency. Julie is tireless and energetic and a pleasure to work with.

I have been a Real Estate Developer, Investor, and licensed Agent in the State of California for more than twenty years. I had never met Julie Prudden prior to my first trip out to the area, in which I intended to begin getting familiar with the market. Very quickly, but obviously with a lot of background and preparatory work, Julie was able to connect with my family’s unique needs and wants, and show me an appropriate number of type of properties we would be interested in. She did not waste my time or hers, showing me huge quantities of properties that would not match my family.
I have always believed that what makes a Realtor extraordinary is the ability to listen to and understand people as much, if not more than, properties and market data. Julie has the rare combination of both qualities, and executes her duties with not only a high degree of professionalism, but in an incredibly personable manner.
At the end of the day, Julie actually found and sold to our family the perfect property, that wasn’t even on the market at the time. This is the ultimate validation of Julie’s service. She’s not just a Real Estate person, she’s a people person, and has a comprehensive grasp of the rather diverse Kansas City Metro market. I would enthusiastically recommend Julie Prudden to anyone needing the type of service I’ve described.

My wife Wendy and I have had the pleasure of knowing Julie Prudden and having her as our realtor. She goes the extra mile for her clients and can always be counted on to do whatever it takes to make a deal happen.
Julie found the perfect house for my mom! After recently moving to Lee's Summit from Dallas, my mom wanted to see what the real estate market was like so we contacted Julie. Julie took the time to find out what Mom was looking for and lined up several houses for her to look at. Even though she wasn't planning to buy a house for a few months, Mom found her new house the second day we looked - a great bungalow in downtown Lee's Summit. Julie found just the right house in just the right location.

We have worked with Julie for about 2 years now & have completed 2 transactions with her in that time frame. I have been buying properties for, well, a lot of years & find Julie to be honest and straight in all of our dealings and will recommend her to one & all.
