Discover the Region's Best living...


After wasting time looking at lakefront lots, we called Jules and within an hour we knew more about what we wanted than imaginable. Jules has a tremendous amount of experience to share and he shares it enthusiastically. We decided to build and we couldn't be happier with our new home.

We moved to the area from California and finding a home was tough. Jules and his team went so far as to shoot videos of the homes we were interested in. I can’t tell you how much that helped us narrow down our list of homes.

- J & P Hansen, Southern California

Jules and his team did everything they promised. Wow! Jules was always available to show us around, he helped us secure a lender and negotiated on our behalf when a roof issue was discovered. You can't go wrong with Jules.

As a first time buyer, I contacted Jules and he explained the entire home buying process from A-Z. He recommended a lender, who was equally informative. I knew exactly what was going to happen and had no big surprises. I am now a happy homeowner thanks to Jules.

- J. Brown, Traverse City, MI

Jules truly went above and beyond the normal duties of a realtor. Since I live in Utah, he had to handle all aspects of showing the home, making sure everything was in working order, etc. He not only showed the house and represented it well, but he dealt with some complicated property line issues

We wanted to downsize from a large home in Charlevoix. When our home finally sold we needed to find a condo fast and were looking in Traverse City without success. Casha Matthews was referred to us and she went to work on our behalf. I highly recommend the Jules Yates Team.

Jules was very responsive is showing us homes we were interested in seeing. He was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and helped us find the best house in the neighborhood we desired.

Jules and I worked together to find the house I currently own. He suffered wasp stings for me! We were looking for a needle in a haystack; something empty and affordable with 3 beds/more than 1 bath and a 2 car garage... and a basement. I got it! He was a great help.

Jules and his team were great about getting our transaction done. We had a really tight deadline and a lot of complications involved, and they were able to navigate all of that for us and make it happen. Very glad to have worked with Jules and would highly recommend him for anyone.

I was a first time home buyer. They held me hand through the whole process and explained everything in detail to me. If they thought I couldn't afford a house, they would tell me upfront. I never felt any pressure to buy anything I didn't like. Any questions or concerns I would promptly hear back

If you are. In need of a realtor who will go way beyond for you, give you great advice and work for YOU. Look no further than Jules Yates. He sold two houses for us in a quick manner AND gave us great advice on the house we were buying in another city. We would have been lost without Jules'

Finding Jules and his team was a blessing in disguise. The mortgage company we had went through was a complete nightmare and Jules and his team helped us out in so many ways! They went above and beyond, my husband and I couldn't believe it. Thank you guys so much for everything!

Jules Yates is the role model for what a realtor should be. He works 24/7 to sell your property and get the deal completed, even making those calls he technically doesn't have to do. He is patient and honest. NO B.S. from this realtor, he tells you exactly what you will get from him.

Jules is very knowledgeable and experienced. We relied on his familiarity with the market and recommendations as our Buyer's agent to sort through complicated issues with regard to the purchase of a waterfront property. We highly recommend him.

Jules worked with us while we were still stationed in California (USMC), and he made all the difference in the world. We had already wasted money and precious time to come here to work with another agent and it was a nightmare... I contacted Jules from California.

We were looking to possibly buy or build and Jules was a great help. His knowledge of vacant land and local builders helped us get the home of our dreams. He assisted us from start to finish and was always there to answer our questions.

I purchased a luxury condominium from Jules and i could not be happier. Jules has a tremendous knowledge of condominiums and he explained all the benefits (and limitations) of owning a condominium. We are grateful.

I knew very little about the Traverse City are when I decided to purchase a home in Traverse City and called on a property on Zillow. Lucky for me I reached Jules, he went out of his way to give me a tour of the area and help me decide the ideal location for my family.
