    In 2016, we purchased Idaho Properties Real Estate. Determined to create a “better brokerage” and give every agent what they needed to provide the best service in the industry to clients and customers. Realty ONE Group recognized our commitment to excellence and after discovering that their business model was virtually identical to our future direction, we “went ROG”. In 2018 we became Realty ONE Group Professionals. Our COOLTURE is unique. Every agent has a voice, because every client deserves our best. For most of us, the sale or purchase of a home is one of the biggest and most important decisions we will make having large financial emotional and relational consequences. In today’s market it’s critical that you have a REALTOR® on your side that moves quickly, negotiates strongly and in good faith, on your behalf. I am truly humbled each and every time someone chooses myself or anyone from the ROG team to serve them.

    Cheers until we chat!

    Wonderful experience selling my home! Selling my home with Joel and Julie Hess was stress-free and I was impressed with their knowledge of the real estate market. They put their experience to work for me; I was kept informed during the entire process and I appreciated their honesty and forthright communication style. They helped me find a terrific buyer and my closing was easy and drama-free. A superlative real estate experience for sure! Verified by RateMyAgent


    Confidence is key Joel and Julie made my Wife and me feel comfortable leaving the sale of our home to them. They had great knowledge of current trends and went above and beyond to make our home attractive for sale even with some real drawbacks to the property. Joel and Julie were confident in their ability to sell our home and that confidence attracted us to have them sell our home. We had other agents hem and haw over price points and when we told Joel what we hoped to get he said that’s perfect. And then they had offers on our home for the price we wanted in a matter of days.then they held our hand through our first home sale. You can’t go wrong with Joel and Julie. Verified by RateMyAgent

    A really smooth experience We used Joel to help purchase a home and when circumstances changed for our family, we also used him again in the sale of our home. We had a great experience with Joel in both situations. Joel has good values along with industry experience and knowledge, which makes him someone you can trust. He guided us through the process and at times when decisions had to be made he educated us by presenting the options, but leaving decisions up to us. We always felt confident and assured working with Joel. Verified by RateMyAgent

    Excellent!!! We couldn’t be happier with our experience! We gave them almost no time to put together our open house but Joel and Julie prepared a spectacular presentation of our home....WAY above our expectations. We were stunned when the offers came in after 2 days. They were quietly 3 steps ahead of every detail enabling us to relax. My husband and I were impressed with their level of experience, knowledge, confidence, class, ability to anticipate, preparedness, willingness, and mostly by how easy they made the process for us. Their marketing materials are stunning. I could not recommend them any more highly. Verified by RateMyAgent

    Excellent experience. Having been a realtor in the past I had an idea what to expect and Joel and his team went above and beyond my expectations. They gave great advice and sold our home for top dollar in a timely manor, making our move across the country less stressful. I highly recommend this team of professionals. Verified by RateMyAgent

    The sale of our home was relatively painless. The sale of our home was so smooth that it allowed us to focus on moving into our new home without worrying about the selling of our home on Grayson. The communication between everyone involved was excellent. Verified by RateMyAgent

    I recently sold my Meridian Idaho home. I listed it for sale by owner using Zillow and Craigslist. Joel and Julie were the buyers realtors and were very professional. Julie was very willing to assist me through the process when I was uncertain about something and made the experience very pleasant. She communicated with me on a regular basis so I knew exactly where we were in the process. I would highly recommend both of them if you are looking for a realtor.

    This is the second home I've purchased with Joel and Julie Hess as my agents, and the first home I sold. During the entire process I felt so safe and secure, they really are great and know what they are doing. We bought a beautiful home and we are delighted.

    I was referred to Joel and Julie by a friend ever since the first meeting they were very thorough on what we were looking for and kept us aware of all the properties that fit our criteria. Most of all they helped us get the house we wanted!
