What They Say About BDG
“Our agent [Jodi Tate] is very knowledgeable and was able to share excellent points to properly sale the house. She was very friendly and was quickly in responding to any questions or issues that came up during the sale process.”
~Felipe and Mayra Villalon
“We moved to Winston Salem, NC about a 1.5 yrs ago (we do this a lot, as we have lived in IL, FL, Germany, TX and CA in the last 10 yrs). The first 6+ months, we had rented a home so that we could focus on learning about the new area and find an area and neighborhood that fit our needs. Jodi was not our first realtor here, and we were referred to her by our realtor from Chicago, and were VERY, did I say VERY, pleased to find her. Jodi showed us a TON of homes over a 6 month time period, so needless to say, she has the patience of a saint. Jodi is also a very good listener, as she would make sure we would keep to “our home requirements list”. There were many times that she would point out that we were not looking at a house that fit our needs and she would keep us on track, when we would get dazed by bells & whistles or the newness of the wrong house for us. Experienced, knowledgable, and friendly are how I would describe Jodi. She always went out of her way (Picking us up, having snacks in the car for kids, presenting information homes or areas without asking, calling contractors, etc.) throughout the entire real estate process and I would highly recommend Jodi and her team to anyone in the area looking for a realtor. She is an huge asset to the real estate industry in WS and made the process very pleasurable for us.”

“I referred Julie A. Campbell to assist a family member in selling a condo in Winston Salem. She has done a wonderful job. She’s very personal and professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone considering selling their property in the Triad Area.”
~Susan Fox Zongker
“It was a pleasure working with her as we found our new home in a new city all through her assistance and guidance. Christy is very accessible, positive, and knowledgeable and gives her 100 percent throughout the process. When we found the right home for our family, Christy helped us close the deal, negotiate favorable terms, and was there to assist us until we had the keys in our hand! We would highly recommend Christy to anyone interested in purchasing house in the area.”
~Sindhu and Deepesh Nayanar
“Christy has been amazing to work with! We meet with several realtors prior to meeting Christy and none of them took charge of the situation like she did. She said she would find us what we were looking for and she did! She followed through with everything she said she would do and took the stress out of buying a home. We loved working with Christy, she made everything super easy. I think your company is lucky to have her!!”
~Matthew & Jamie Russell
“We had a great experience with Jodi and her team at The Blue Door Group. They were patient, creative and very active, provided varied promotions, developed solid traffic, gave valuable feedback … And they sold the house! I highly recommend the Blue Door Group!”
“We interviewed Jodi Tate and the Blue Door Group on a Friday evening about selling our home in Arbor Run. They came in prepared with all the research I hoped for, but wasn’t sure I’d get this first interview.
Jodi shared a custom marketing plan with us that fit our timeline and she was not intimidated to also offer suggestions on how to get our property ready for market. I was looking for a successful business minded approach to selling this property and I found it with the Blue Door Group! We did not interview another team after our meeting and we had a sold sign in the front yard in 45 days! The Blue Door Group really listened and implemented a different marketing strategy that worked. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the plan, the communication and the results.”
“As you begin to consider and compare the many professionals that could be your representative realtor, we wanted to write this to express our highest recommendation for our Realtor, Julie Aites Campbell.”
We encourage you to speak with Julie before making any decisions. We feel that she was an excellent representative for us as first-time home buyers, who began the process with virtually no knowledge of home buying procedures. We feel she made the process incredibly smooth and painless.
Being first-time home buyers, Julie demonstrated to us that she possesses all of the attributes necessary to be an excellent Realtor, able to guide us, the uninitiated, through the process. She verified her capabilities and knowledge by consistently providing us with exceptional guidance. Julie is very easy to get in contact with, incredibly quick to respond to questions or concerns. She provided thorough research and fact gathering on a number of properties we were interested in. She provided us with detailed information to include: property maps, utilities usage figures, comparable home values of nearby properties and many other details vital to our decision making. She always has the most current and important information (that she passes directly to you), is very patient with her clients (especially since we had a multitude of questions, some of which were technical in nature). Particularly impressive, she even provided us with access to technology such as apps to assist us in our search.
Julie is both professional and personable. She takes pride in doing a thorough job to assist her clients in many ways. In our particular case as first-time home buyers, with a constant barrage of questions and concerns, she handled our needs with grace and made the entire process go as smoothly as we could have hoped for.
It would be hard to envision anyone in this profession doing a job superior to Julie. It is also almost impossible to envision a client of hers being anything but delighted in choosing to work with her. We highly recommend her, and feel that she was the best choice of realtor that we could have made to handle our needs.

“We were down on our luck and we came across Christy Armstrong. She immediately gave us her full attention when we told her our situation and was very pleasant and helpful to work with. We only had a few weeks to find a home and with her knowledge and good relationships with other contacts. She found us a home, lender and handled all the inspections. One thing that I really love about her is she is passionate about her job and she makes sure you are always taken care of no matter what the situation is. I would recommend her over and over again.”
~Matt and Joey Staten
“If you are thinking about listing your home and not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Jodi Tate and the Blue Door Group. While it might not seem that the agent matters, let me tell you—it does!”
We listed our home with two other agents before her. They both were top producers, but they used the same strategy they used with every other client…and they both panicked when a quick sale didn’t happen. Neither was able to complete the sale.
This was a house sale that was complicated by the fact that we were living in Iowa—a time zone and six states away. This did not faze Jodi and she was able to adapt to our needs. She went out of her way to communicate and kept us up-to-date on all activity and feedback. I depended on Jodi to keep the connection alive and she did!
Jodi was patient. She developed a strategy and gave wise counsel along the way. She tweaked the plan as we went along and she was able to complete the sale. Most importantly, she sold our home for more than my prior agents thought possible.
Her level of expertise ranges from her extensive geographic knowledge of the Winston Salem market, the incredible network of contacts she has built over the years and structural building knowledge. She has an eye for detail and a strong aesthetic quality and will always have your best interest at the fore front.
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.
If you want a listing in the MLS and a sign in the yard, you can get that anywhere. If you want a trusted partner, you want Jodi!

“I was very fortunate to have Billy Bjorklund as my real state agent. I contact him asking and explaining him what I was looking for, he immediately respond at me and did a lot of research of the area where I was interested. He came with the information and pictures of houses and took all his time to showed me the all the properties understanding my real needs and pointing the pros and cons in such an honest way. He is an expertise have tons of experience regarding pricing and repair cost. I feel comfortable with the fact that he will succeed in dealing effectively and honestly with the negotiation involved; because he is really on top on every detail. Thank you Billy.”
~ Patricia A.
“So glad that we decided to go with the Blue Door Group. Elizabeth was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. This was our first home buying experience and it could not have gone any smoother. We will definitely use the group again in the future!”
“I have just started using Billy to look for some houses. He has been great at helping to locate options, research my questions/houses, and take us around to check out the houses. He is very helpful, great at providing other contacts when needed, and not pushy at all. We have not put in an offer yet so I have not experienced his negotiation skills. I would definately recommend Billy to someone beginning their house search.”
“Kim will be an advocate for you during this transition of moving/selling. Her level of professionalism and knowledge of marketing is impeccable. I highly recommend using Kim as your agent.”
“I am a inspired local property investor and from the beginning Billy has been a true joy to work with. He is always a pleasure to speak with and his knowledge of the area has been helpful engineering a blueprint to investing success locally. Billy is very energetic always keeping me in touch on possible investment properties that meets my profile requirements. Billy possesses the expertise I need to make the best informed decision with my investments that gives me the security I need. I look at Billy as a true business adviser and will continue to use his expertise moving forward. I recommend Billy because he is trustworthy, loyal, and responsive.”
“Working with Julie has a been a joy. We are first time home buyers so we really did not know much about the process. She was always willing to explain anything we had issues with and my husband had quite a bit of questions. She never made us feel as if we were asking silly question at all during the process. She was extremely punctual and always took the extra step to look out for our best interest.”
“I would like to take this time to thank Kim for the wonderful experience she provided us in regards to selling and buying a new home. This was our first time selling a home and the task seemed overwhelming. Kim came in and streamlined the whole process with a checklist of items to complete and a timeline as to when everything would take place. Sure enough our home was under contract within the first week and we have Kim to thank for that. She went above and beyond her duties as our realtor and made sure we were comfortable through the whole process.
When purchasing our second home the task seemed daunting because being prior homeowners we had a better idea of things we wanted. Kim took on our requests head on and helped us realize what was really important to us. She is extremely professional and sincere. She takes every experience personally and wants to make sure her clients are happy. We are extremely happy with our new home and with the experience of working with Kim. I recommend her to all my clients and friends when I hear that they are interested in moving. Thank you Kim!!!“
