About Julie Bell

“When we decided to build a new home, we identified Julie Bell as someone we wanted to work with even before we had decided on an architect or builder. We actively solicited her input on various aspects of our new home while working out the design with an architect, and we relied heavily on her input and guidance to help us design, finish, and furnish virtually every aspect of its interior. We cannot say enough nice things about Julie; in our new home building experience she’s definitely one of the nicest, most competent people with whom we worked. We recommend her highly.”
- Jim and Kathy Maurer
