    • “The Banner team did an outstanding job of helping us find and secure a nearly perfect home in a neighborhood which seems perfect for us. Julia was great throughout the process: patient, tolerant, and wise in her way gently moving us where we needed to be. We will surely recommend to others and be back next time we need a new home.”

      - The Yankowitz Family

    • “The market was extremely competitive. But I’ll tell you, when you work with an amazing realtor and wonderful team, the impossible can become possible. Our realtor Julia Fortin is the BEST! She was so upbeat about house hunting and always remained positive. When we saw the price of this house, I remember telling her we don’t stand a chance because someone will offer way above asking price and she said, “it’s ok, let’s try anyways.” She never gave up and because of her positivity, we got this house. I am so grateful to her. Also, big ...”

      - The Martinez Family

    • “The Banner Team is amazing. We worked with Julia Fortin specifically, and she was constantly surpassing our expectations and going above and beyond the call. We were first-time home buyers and really knew nothing about the process and Julia talked us through the entire process, explaining how to get a mortgage, what documents we needed to sign when, how to make an offer, etc. Her expertise and the connections and resources of the Banner Team have made the house buying process as painless as it can be. Julia really did all the work and found us...”

    • “We worked with Wendy Banner and Julia Fortin of the Banner Team to find the ideal lot to build a custom home near DC. Wendy and Julia were very responsive and deeply understood our many requirements. They worked relentlessly with us until we found a place we could build the home of our dreams. They are also well connected to and respected by other real estate agents in the area, which proved crucial during negotiations. Highly recommend them to anyone looking to move to the DC area.”

      - Julio and Maria

    • “We worked with Julia Fortin who was a referral from a good friend and neighbor. Offering a referral can be tricky, however we were so glad we listened. When we first met Julia, we were extremely impressed. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and overall gave us the impression she would work hard for us. The packet of information was comprehensive and once she was done explaining everything, we did not hesitate to sign with her. From the start, she offered suggestions on how to prepare our home for the market. Through it all, Julia made us feel as ...”

      - The DeBow Family

    • “Julia & Ashley did a fantastic job getting Allison & I to closing! It's not easy working within the dysfunction of sellers going through a conflicted divorce, and COVID market fluctuations. They persevered, going above the call of duty with the upmost professionalism. If there's relator subspecialties, then Julia's is working with divorcees. I couldn't have gotten the house sold without The Banner Team! Thank you!”

      - The Brenner Family

    • “We cannot say enough wonderful things about our realtor, Julia Fortin. As first time home-buyers we were overwhelmed with the process and reached out to friends for recommendations. We selected Julia based on the amazing recommendation our friends gave us and her experience in the area that we were hoping to buy in. Julia was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and did a great job finding different properties for us to consider. I also appreciated her years of experience when it came to the home visits. She was never pushy trying to ...”

    • “My name is Nemah Ahmad, and my sister Iman and I recently purchased a lovely home in Washington DC with the help of Long & Foster. My family and I have been scouring the market for 18 months roughly now, and the majority of that time, we were doing the daily research ourselves. We cannot begin to describe what a tremendously positive change we experienced the moment Julia Fortin entered into that search with us; immediately, we were made to feel very comfortable and extremely well supported in our hunt. From our very first meeting...”

    • “Julia Fortin was our realtor when we purchased our 1st home so we automatically thought of her when my husband and I were thinking about a potential move. To help sell our current home she brought a stager and also supplied staging items to help us prepare our house for the market. There were several similar houses in our neighborhood for sale at the time. We priced strategically and the house sold in 5 days, with multiple offers, and over asking price. She and her team helped us navigate through inspections and getting to settlement on time. S...”

    • “Love that a portion of the commission goes to charity – that’s great. Julia was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very flexible and accommodating. We had so much more confidence with her (and your entire team during settlement) by our side during this process.”
