Julie is one of only 16,000 Realtors who have earned the coveted Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) certification offered by the National Association of Realtors. This added training and knowledge helps Julie serve the Baby Boomer population and their parents with an understanding of their special needs. Julie and her staff work with families across the country to coordinate the sale of a home along with the often overwhelming task of moving aging parents to a new residence.
Our One Simple Solution Team provides peace of mind and assurance to families every day that their loved ones are being taken care of by professionals who truly care. Counseling is a big part of our services, and we are sensitive to family and parental concerns throughout the process.
George Cosgrove was born in Stockton, California. He travelled around the world with his family until he came back to Stockton for high school, where he met his high school sweetheart Julie. They married in 1980 and have two sons, Jarrett and Brett. Following his time at Delta College, George entered the construction field as a painter. Soon afterwards he acquired a painter contractor's license and became his own boss. After running a successful painting business for several years, George obtained his general contractor's license.
Over the next several years George built new homes, remodeled homes and built large subdivisions. His construction background has helped him learn just about every aspect of the construction industry. He has been fortunate to have his youngest son Brett work with him for the last 10 years. George found the work that his wife Julie was doing with Seniors Community very meaningful, and agreed that opening a company like One Simple Solution would be a wise thing for the community. Thus One Simple Solution was born and became a family business.
