Jules Harper was introduced to my wife and me over four years ago by a real estate agent we had consulted for the sale of our home (from which we had already moved). Because of the real estate crash, ours was a short sale, and the agent told us that Jules Harper was the best he knew in that business. My wife and I met Jules on very short notice because our situation was dire. We had just had a lease purchase contract fall through. We needed to sell the home extremely quickly or we would be responsible for capital gains tax and a number of monthly payments that we could not afford.
Jules met us the very day we called him. We had lunch and were immediately impressed with everything about him. It was apparent that he was an expert in his field. We hired him immediately.
Though Jules was an expert in his field, that expertise was not at all what inspired this letter of recommendation. What inspired this letter was his work ethic and care for our situation and family. The day the house was listed (December of 2012), we got a contract. We were thrilled. But we soon learned that there was a title dispute on the home. This issue would persist and create financial strain for my family and me.
Jules worked so hard to resolve the title issue with two banks that were slow (or refused) to respond to phone calls, emails, and letters. The mortgage was then sold to another servicer.
This pattern repeated itself three times as the mortgage sold upon nearing a resolution. Jules worked as hard each setback as he had on the first day – harder in fact as the complexity and work required of him increased with each new twist.
I literally cannot put into words how much of a hard worker, expert in his field, and (most importantly) a good person this man is. To say that I highly recommend Jules Harper is such an understatement. He is a great person who will work for you even at his own expense.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for getting great results in selling my home. From the moment you were recommended to me and I first met you and your team, I knew that you were a cut above other REALTORS.
Before our first appointment, you researched the neighborhood home sales and specific information about my home. I was also happy to have the information to guide me in preparing my home for sale. Your advice allowed me to be strategic on improvements that increased the appeal of the home and added maximum value.
I developed a personal plan to budget for continued payments as the home was being marketed. Now I see that had you told me what I wanted to hear, I would not have been as prepared as l was. And now we know, your knowledge of the market was spot on.
During this process, a few offers came in, including an offer for lease to buy. The information you provided helped me make wise decisions. Your availability throughout the process not only kept my anxiety down, but allowed us to respond in a timely manner to each situation. Seeing and knowing that you had my best interest at heart contributed to making the process of selling my home less stressful than it might have been and certainly one with a very favorable outcome.
Your counsel, experience, and results make you the BEST REALTOR I have ever dealt with. At every opportunity I will recommend you and The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams Realty to friends and acquaintances without reservation.
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for all you have done for us. Not just with being our Realtor but truly making this possible. You made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Also, your professionalism is beyond compare. If a contract fell through you immediately secured another and filled us with hope. To you and your staff, thanks for never giving up.

I just completed the short sale process with Jules Harper. A specialist in this complicated field of real estate. He was referred to me by close friends and came highly recommended through other research of my own. From the beginning he demonstrated a high level professionalism and seriousness that I needed to get the job done. When I had several questions and concerns he showed outstanding patience while explaining each step that was involved. In the end we made it happen and I will be referring him to other friends in the future.
My name is Edward Mosley and I know how it is to owe almost $100k more on my home than it is worth and to be behind on my mortgage payments. I am a licensed real estate agent so I could easily list my own home myself. When I was in the heat of the battle, I asked the real estate pros who I know for recommended short sale professionals. Several told me that the clear choice was Mr. Jules Harper. I called him and he came to my home and interviewed me. I listed my home with him that day. The house had problems, but he took the most awesome photos of my home and it was shown at least 200 times! There was never any doubt that Mr. Harper would sell the house. For every obstacle, Mr. Harper had solutions. I knew the consequences and urgency of not selling the house - so I did everything promptly that he asked me to do like printing documents that he sent to my email - and faxing them back to him - at Office Depot. It is an absolute fact that Mr. Harper is a highly respected short sale professional because he truly feels that his profession is a ministry helping good people avoid foreclosures and bankruptcies. Today, March 9, 2011 was the closing date. Now, I can move forward without a foreclosure or bankruptcy. If Mr. Harper tells you anything, you can rest assured that he has told you the truth. Believe him. If you need a recommendation, call Mr. Harper and ask him to give you my number. Mr. Harper, God Bless You and I hope you the very, very, very best. Thank you.
Our home was a month away from foreclosure when we contacted Jules about helping us sell as a short sale. While our original listing agent was able to do virtually nothing for us, Jules found a steady stream of potential customers, even in in this rapidly deteriorating economy. We had an offer in about 40 days and were able to avoid foreclosure.
I would happily recommend Jules and The Four Walls Team to anyone looking to sell, or buy, a home.

In late 2008, I put my house on the market upon taking a job in Virginia. I immediately hired the services of another agent to try to either rent or sell my home in Acworth, GA. I must emphasize the word “try” because I ended up relieving her of her services after a very short contract.
At the time, the Real Estate market was at a low-point for prospective sellers. I was extremely overwhelmed with the idea of selling my home, and I sought an agent who would produce results.
Mr. Jules Harper contacted me and explained his strategy for selling in the current market. He stressed precise selling points, aggressive marketing, and careful pricing. I hired his services immediately.
The main advantage with Mr. Harper is the fact that he understands his business. He advises his clients to make small but significant changes to their homes to support his marketing strategy and sell the house for the most amount of money in the given market.
Given the 2009 market, I am very satisfied with our result of selling the house in a couple of months. I would recommend hiring Mr. Harper’s services over anyone else in the Atlanta area.
Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions concerning my experience.
The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams sold our home in 28 days when others couldn't in 6 months. The best part is that we got our full asking price! The staff was professional, responsive, proactive, and knowledgeable which made the process a complete joy. From the day we hired the team to the day we closed we were treated like the most important client on their roster. We're proud to have found an agent for life.
Since the first time Mr. Harper called me (right after the listing with another agent expired for the second time), I knew right away I was talking to someone who cared about his clients. Working with customer service for over 7 years, I was accustomed to the steps to building a good relationship with clients. He was very polite and knowledgeable, answering all the questions and concerns that I had. He followed up with either a phone call (never pushy) or a nice card.
My husband was skeptic at first, especially since our contract with the other agent didn't turn into a sale, after 6 months in the market. So we waited another 6 months to call Mr. Harper (which we should have done right away, because the real estate market was getting worse and worse for the home sellers and my husband had a job opportunity to work abroad) and he explained everything that would happen.
Right on our first meeting, my husband was sold. He was impressed with how much more Mr. Harper had to offer in comparison with our former Realtor, how informed he was about the market, and how well he showed us his strategy.
Mr. Harper was always optimistic and kept in contact with us, working even on the day his wife had a baby! He always had a personal touch without losing his professionalism, keeping us up to date and sending many prospects our way. On the first month, we had more views than in 6 months with the other agent!
Needless to say, his effort was well compensated. After a few offers, the right buyers looked around our home and fell in love. The process was very quick and Mr. Harper was excellent, very professional and a great adviser with the negotiations. We recommend his name to every potential home seller/buyer that crosses our way.
Thank you so much for all you did, Mr. Harper!

Thanks to Jules and the Four Walls Group for selling my home in a difficult market. From the start Jules had good suggestions and ideas on making my property stand out. He had a good marketing strategy and made use of on-line tools to keep me up to date on viewings and statistics. All of this in combination with his expertise makes Jules and his team a sure bet. I have a Realtor for life and will most definitely recommend him and the Four Walls Team to anyone looking for a Realtor.

We just wanted you to know how much we appreciate your representation and sale of our home in Canton GA. Your assistance in helping us to sell our home in 2 months after listing with you was a great relief after sitting on the market for 6 months with another agent. You provided wonderful feedback on how to stage our home for sale. Everything went great with the showings. We really appreciated the up to date progress reports. We highly recommend you as the 1st and only agent to sell a home.
Matthew & Kristina Eggleston
I want to take the time to thank Jules Harper and everyone at "The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams". Jules was able to get more showings in one month than my past realtor had in eight months. Because of the many showings, we were able to sell and close in a timely manner. Jules kept me up to date on everything that was going on. That made it easy to adapt to any changes needed to make the sale. In the future, when I need to buy again, it will be easy to choose my realtor. The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams.
Thanks again to everyone at "The Four Walls Group" and Jules Harper.
My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better real-estate agent than Jules. From the first conversation, Jules not only worked to find the perfect house for us, but also become a part of our lives; find our needs with timing, location, and the million other concerns and questions we had. He constantly and consistantly made himself available to us and gave personalized service in every sense of those words. When we came in from out-of-state, he spent full days with us in the tedious process of going house to house to not only find out what our needs and expectations were, but also to lead the way in finding our home; the right time, right place, and right specifications. Jules helped us find our perfect home while we were out of state and close on it within our financial and upgrade parameters within 45 days.
It has been a pleasure to work with you. You're our man whenever it comes to buying or selling.

Jules Harper is an exceptional agent. Jules' business acumen, real estate knowledge and negotiating skills are first rate. My wife and I enjoyed working with Jules because we felt confident that he understood the market and he was working towards closing a fair deal for everyone involved. We've worked with Jules to Buy, Sell, and Rent homes and he has always produced great results for us. I strongly recommend Jules to handle any Real Estate transaction.
Jules is AMAZING!!!! He came recommended from a family member, and he has now helped 4 members of my family (including myself) either buy or sell their home. He is extremely patient, helps you through every step in the process of buying (or selling) the home, and is VERY flexible as far as meeting early or late in the day. He celebrated with us in our win, and brought our spirits up when something fell through. Not only is he a GREAT agent, he is a really cool person too. He will always be my go-to recommendation for friends or family who are looking to buy or sell their home!
