Sarah H Hutchinson (Founder, The Yoga Wisdom Institute)

For many years this land property has been for sale without any activity.

We met Nathalie one day, discussed selling this land. She called, we met in her office, signed papers to list the property. Within two weeks she called us and said we have an offer on the property. As of yesterday we received our check and we have closed. Just in a very quick timely manner. Not sure how she did it, but she made it so easy we intend to use her again, and highly recommend her to others. Nathalie is a mover and a shaker, she loves what she does and is excited to help her clients. She puts up her signs, and lists it with photos and is available 24/7. Thanks again Nathalie. You rock!

Working with Julia was a no problem experience selling our land.

All paperwork was by email and FedEx since we live in another state. There were no problems on settlement day and we had our money the next day in our account. I would highly recommend Julia for your realtor needs. Charlie and Sue

I recently purchased a parcel of land in Mesa Co.

from Julia Gross with Next Home. Julia not only served as my agent but did a marvelous job of keeping in contact and answering every question I asked. Also, Julia lives in the area and knows it well. Julia invited engineers and builders to every meeting to help me understand the potential of the area better. I have been an active buyer and seller of properties for the past 25 years and by far this was the easiest purchase I have ever experienced. I highly recommend Julia Gross and Next Home.

Jason Arthur

As with most home buyers these days, we started off utilizing Zillow and Realtor.

Com, looking for properties in the Mesa, Colorado area. The listing agent on one was Nathalie Ames. She promptly made herself available and we visited the property. After spending a hour with Nathalie, a relationship was formed and she began to look for the property we were seeking. Within a few days, she called and had found some acreage that wasn't yet listed, but soon to go on the market. Within 24 hours, we were under contract. It is important to say at this point... a local agent that is very well connected is invaluable and Nathalie is that person. Zillow and Realtor.Com are great tools, but they will never reveal all the properties that are available. Through the rest of the process, including the coordination of two Title Companies, involving a contingency on the house we were selling, Nathalie was very responsive and had all the knowledge to successfully navigate us through the process. We now own a beautiful piece of property and will begin building soon. Thank you Nathalie!!! The wife and I HIGHLY recommend her!

John Lane

Thoughtful, accessible, and really easy to work with .

.. in person and long distance. Will work with Nathalie again if I have the chance.

Tony C.

Julia, is in everyway an educated, outstanding, very professional person.

I have nothing but praise for her a reality agent, She would excel in most professional jobs that require a knowledge of the business, knowledge of the area and its specifics regarding land forms, geology, water issues and so forth. She is quick to explore new areas of the business and does this well. She also strives to answer all questions regarding specifics of the property, best selling techniques, and explaining the total process to the seller, and to the buyer's agent. She is an outstanding young realtor and very adapt to her profession, she will do well in this career field, and I highly recommend in every way, shape and fashion. My choice again if I do another transaction. I would rate her an one of the top agents in Western Colorado.

Bennett Howard Young (Retired Environmental Engineer/Geologist)

Nathalie did a great job from start to finish.

She knows the market in the area where we were selling. She advised us throughout, was attentive to our questions and concerns, advertised and promoted the house aggressively and professionally. She got it done!

Paul & Joyce Hackbert (Sellers)

Julia was great to work with while purchasing my first home.

Your knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail, as well as being a genuinely lovely lady made this easy and seamless. Thank you! My heart is full!

Natalie Bertoni (Xray Technologist)

What a gift it was to have Julia on our team.

Crazy times in the market today and its volatility, so having an extremely well organized agent bringing her detailed and conscientious ways to our sale experience was priceless. There were multiple occasions when we would just look at each other with confidence that the new bit of craziness would be handled perfectly by Julia. The amazing thing is in her professional DNA she was still in sync with our personal battle of selling a home left to us with a recent life loss. We felt she was caring and thoughtful of the task ahead of us. I can recommend Julia Gross to anyone. You won't be disappointed !

Rory Higman

William and Ginger Mitchell (Retired)

Nathalie assisted me with the sale of my vacation home at a small ski resort.

In a market that usually takes a year's sales time, she was able to find a buyer and close in two months. Her knowledge of the market helped me be comfortable in making a decision on balancing sales price vs. time on market. She guided the process smoothly through all of the steps to closing. Her marketing knowledge was spot on. I was very happy with the sales price, the time on market and her managing of showings. I highly recommend this talented, detail oriented agent.

Pat Montgomery

Natalie was on it.

In an area where it could have taken months, she had a buyer almost immediately. I couldn’t have asked for more in a realtor. I’ll give her 5 stars.

Nathalie was pleasant to engage conversationally, firm to honor constraints required by the Pandemic, open and active to add informational tag signs at the site which distinguished advantages of the lot for sale, and consistent to notify of interest and offers pertaining to the lot.

Her lone proximity as an agent in Mesa and surrounding areas qualifies her uniquely as a reliable, professional go-to representative for Mesa/Powderhorn regional properties.


I needed to sell some land up between Mesa and Powderhorn.

Julia was an obvious best choice for this as this is her home turf. She knows land and houses inside and out. I listed and sold this land through her seamlessly!

The outcome was far beyond our expectations and left no doubt that we had chosen the best realtor to accomplish our goals.

She knows the region she is selling intimately, she knows the building industry very well, and she works so hard to ensure her clients are happy. Julia is both our selling realtor for lots we have listed, as well as our buyers agent for our recent home purchase. She is intelligent, trustworthy, honorable and savvy!!

Wow, Julia!

She is such a pleasure to work with. She is friendly, funny, professional, and such a hard worker. I truly can’t put into words how much Julia blew me away.

I want my friends to move out her just so I can recommend Julia :) I cannot thank her enough for everything she’s done for us with our first home buying process. She is incredible. Don’t change a thing, Julia! Also, we’re still obsessed with our welcome basket. Such a cute touch!

"Julia has really got a good handle on what houses and land are worth in our area. This knowledge really came in handy when we decided to sell some land. Without really knowing her, we met with her and discussed our hopes and expectations. It was and easy decision once we met and talked that we should list the property with her. The property sold faster and at a better price than what we originally anticipated. There is no doubt in my mind that a big part of that was the professionalism and knowledge of Julia Gross. Would I hire her again? Absolutely YES!! Sincerely, Mike and Mary Tompkins"

"I truly cannot put into words how great working with Julia was. She has extensive knowledge on the location we were looking at purchasing, super helpful answering any questions, and she’d answer my phone calls or texts any time of the day. We were relocating from Denver and to save us a trip out to Grand Junction she offered to tour a house for us via Zoom and she pointed out many things we would of missed. The house we purchase had a few issues a few weeks before closing but she kept us in the loop with communications so much so that I didn’t have to inquire about any updates. She even drove past the house for us many time before we closed to make sure it was looking good. She’s super sweet and friendly and even had the cutest welcome basket for us after closing on the house. She blew me away. I can’t begin to express how much I’d recommend Julia to anyone looking to purchase in this area. She is professional, amazing at her job, and a downright good person!"
