Your Exclusive Buyers Agents

Charlotte Buyers Agents – Always on Your Side!

Charlotte real estate agents can work for either buyers or sellers, or for both at the same time if their company takes listings and represents sellers. The big difference with Carolina Buyer’s Agent is that our real estate agents work for buyers only, so we’ll always be your Exclusive Buyers Agent (EBA). Read our home buyer reviews to find out what our past clients have to say about their experience with Carolina Buyer’s Agent. Call 800-304-1429 to speak to one of our Charlotte buyers agents for more information on all the advantages you’ll get when you choose Carolina Buyer’s Agent to represent you!

My name is Julie Tuggle, broker/owner of Carolina Buyer’s Agent in Charlotte, NC. After four years working for a traditional broker, I saw the need for a firm that represented buyers’ best interests only on any home for sale in the Charlotte area, including For-Sale-By-Owner homes, so I opened Carolina Buyer’s Agent in 1998. Carolina Buyer’s Agent specializes in buyer representation only, giving buyers the negotiating advantage throughout the home purchase process.

Please give me a call at 704-366-0542 for more information about working with an exclusive buyer agent when you’re ready to start thinking about purchasing a home. Here on our website, you can search for MLS-listed homes, Foreclosures, and For-Sale-by-Owner homes, too. We’ll also explain the legal difference between a dual agent and an exclusive buyer’s agent so you can make the right decision on one of the most important investments you’ll ever own.

I’m a non-smoker and my hobbies are tennis, gardening and of course, investing in real estate!

Since my husband and I were transferred to Charlotte in the early 70’s, we’ve watched Charlotte grow from a community of 100,000 people to the wonderful metro area we now enjoy with a myriad of available opportunities. Our children are Charlotte natives and have made us proud. We have 3 children and 3 grandchildren.

My career has been interesting and varied, from teaching, to social work to gift shop owner and currently a real estate broker. I hold a BS and MS from Syracuse University. I’ve been a licensed broker since the 80’s and have also completed all the course work to become an appraiser. Spending time with our family and especially being involved with our grandchildren is my favorite leisure activity.

My foremost goal is customer service, from the children and families I served as a classroom teacher, to my many customers as a retailer and currently to our buyer-clients who entrust me as their partner with the purchase of their home. A home is likely the most significant investment made in one’s lifetime. Buying a home can be an arduous experience. My privilege and my passion is being part of this process with a buyer. My obligation is to deliver exemplary service. My goal is getting the big, big smiles after closing that mean “Job Well Done”!

Charlotte and the surrounding area has grown by leaps and bounds, offering a fantastic quality of life and an endless variety of homes to choose from. It’s a pleasure and honor to be part of this amazing growth. When my I moved here with my wife Julie and daughter Jessi in 1991, Ballantyne was mostly farmland. Downtown – or “Uptown,” as most folks prefer – was DOA after sundown. Now, Ballantyne fairly hums with life, and Uptown is a destination spot for entertainment, the arts, and some of the finest food in the South.

After completing my MA in English at Wake Forest University, my interests in language and computers led to a career in the property and casualty insurance industry. I’ve had my real estate license since 2004, and thoroughly enjoy the challenge of this dynamic and ever-changing industry. My background in insurance underwriting and organizational development helped me appreciate the value of effective communication and customer service. And it’s a privilege to be part of an organization that’s as unique as Charlotte itself, a dedicated buyer’s agency that can assure its clients undivided loyalty and service.

As you tour our web site, be sure to check out the testimonials from our buyers. Client trust and satisfaction is our goal, and our record in achieving that is one of the reasons I’m proud to be part of the team.

As a native Charlottean, I’ve seen my hometown grow from what was once a neighborly and quaint small city to the large metropolis it is today complete with NFL Football, NBA Basketball and our nationally recognized Charlotte Ballet.

My career has taken me from medical product sales and interior design to finally more than 11 years in real estate as both a licensed broker and in property management. My knowledge of Charlotte and the surrounding areas as well as real estate investment helps me give you the best information and advice when searching for your new home. Having raised my daughter through the public school system and having attended private school myself here in Charlotte, I have wide-ranging experience with the educational system here.

In both real estate and sales, I’ve been recognized and awarded for outstanding customer service several times. You can be confident that I will always work my hardest and do my best when guiding you through the challenging but rewarding search for your next real estate investment. My favorite part of working in real estate is meeting the families and people that I’ve worked with through the years. It’s a really good feeling helping someone find a home that you know they will be happy with and love for years to come.
