Smith Cove

Welcome to Smith Cove

Welcome. I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Julie Bennett. I’m a strategist turned home renovator turned real estate agent. I’ve been in your shoes as a buyer in the Seattle market and home renovator. Not that long ago I was house hunting for my growing family. The perfect house in our favorite neighborhoods was hard to find. So we started with the perfect location instead and built our dream home. Now I’m on a mission to help you find or make your dream home.

When you work with me, you’re working with someone that’s had real skin in the game. I won’t sugar coat the renovation experience and can help you navigate local neighborhoods like a Seattleite. I’ll put strategy into your journey to find home because it’s also one of the biggest financial decisions of your life.

What is Smith Cove?

Smith Cove is is a body of water and a place in Magnolia. A cove is also an architectural arch. Magnolia is one of Seattle’s most beautiful neighborhoods and the place where my renovation and real estate story takes shape. It is the place my family calls home. While it would have been great to call this Magnolia Cove or something to that effect, Joanna Gaines has co-opted all things “Magnolia.” So a found a quiet, protected corner of the neighborhood where the homes meet the sea as inspiration. Smith has personal meaning too.
