"When my dad became ill and my mom was facing the prospect of managing their large home without him, our family spent months talking through all of the possible options for the future.  As we stayed by my dad's side through in-home hospice care, and his eventual passing, my mom's future was always his and our greatest concern.

After my dad died, we spent months sorting through an entire house and an entire lifetime of stuff.  (Yes, he had 45-year-old tax returns neatly filed in the attic!) I wish Dovetail had existed back then.  Our family had to figure this process out on our own, but it would have been so much easier with expert support and guidance.

When I am working with our clients, our family's experience is always at the forefront of my mind and heart.  It really is an honor to be able to support older adults and their families during challenging transitions." - Juli

Juli is a life-long resident of the South Shore of Massachusetts. She grew up in Quincy and spent childhood summers at her family cottage in Plymouth. Growing up in the bungalow her great-grandparents built-in 1929 sparked her passion for houses and the richness of family stories told through our homes. Today, Juli lives with her husband, Rod, their two college students, their whippet, Louie, and Juli’s mom, Jane, in their multi-generational home in Pembroke, MA.

She looks forward to hearing from you, getting to know your unique needs, and providing you with unparalleled service.

What people say about working with Juli

Marie & Shelly

"I can’t express our gratitude enough for every single thing Juli, Joe and the Dovetail team did to help us with our Aunt and her transition from her home to assisted living and then to North Dakota. Your constant and unwavering support and encouragement with each step, as well as your never-ending supply of resources and your “we can do this “ attitude made this whole journey possible.  We could not have managed any of this without you. Dovetail is a gem!"

Suzy & Gretchen

"We can't thank you enough for all that you did to make our parents' move and the sale of their condominium a success!  We are so grateful to you for guiding us through this process, start to finish. While we've been through moves and real estate transactions before, there are so many emotional and physical nuances when it comes to senior moves and home sales, and we were so very grateful to be in your team's capable hands. Thank you for being so sensitive to our family's needs, for helping us navigate from afar, and for being so responsive to each and every question we had. You are all true professionals and very kind and trustworthy people. We would highly recommend Juli and Dovetail's services!"


"Juli is a pleasure to work with. She was committed to our requests, and was willing to walk through every step of the process at our speed. She chased down and answered every question we've had. We've had dozens, we worked her hard and are better educated for having her on our side. She is fun and patient and very pleasant company as well. Our experience with her was positive and very successful. We owe her our gratitude."


"Juli is amazing, she helped us every step of the way. Marketing my home with professional photos and beautiful staging. My home was under agreement in 5 days! She also helped me to buy my new home and was always available whenever I had a question or concern. Four years later, when our family needed to sell my parent's home, Juli was the only person I called. Using anyone else would be a waste of your time!"


"Juli was amazing! We were not real clear on the process when we started, and she was so patient and helpful. I highly recommend Juli if you want an agent who is patient, knowledgeable, and helpful with amazing integrity!"


"I could not recommend Juli enough. She truly cares about her clients and their wants and wishes and works tirelessly to meet your expectations. Juli helped my husband and I sell our home and buy our next home when it was time for us to move. We couldn't have asked for anyone better by our side to coordinate all the logistics and make sure we truly understood each step of the process. You would be lucky to work with Juli to sell your home. 5-stars all around! Not only is she an excellent realtor, she has also turned out to be a true friend to my husband and me. You will not be disappointed if you choose to work with Juli for your real estate needs."


"Juli was absolutely amazing. She made the whole process so easy. She was so easy to talk to, honest, and beyond helpful. My husband and I are both going to miss seeing her!"


"Juli was diligent, kind, incredibly responsive, and a true professional. Juli knows the industry well, knows how to work with everyone, and simply gets things done fast and efficiently. If you want a personable professional, call Juli."
