"We engaged Julia and her colleague Brian to represent us in the purchase of our condo in Boston in the spring. We were first-time buyers moving to a new city on the opposite coast, and we also had just one weekend to visit properties. Because of the difficulty of our case, we needed help from the best real estate team in Boston. I'm happy to say that we found them. From the beginning, it was clear to us that Julia was among the elite in her field. Our search was centered in a few very competitive areas (Back Bay, South End, Fenway/Kenmore, Coolidge Corner) where inventories are low and prices are rising quickly. Julia negotiated this difficult terrain with confidence and ease. She carefully curated our search to make the most of our limited time and drew on her deep local knowledge to help us set our priorities. She worked seamlessly with Brian to cover every base, and answered every request promptly and precisely. Her zealous advocacy and shrewd advice buoyed us through the stressful moments that come with tight deadlines and multiple offers. Thanks to her and Brian's skillful negotiation, we landed in a home that we had originally considered a "reach" at best. Julia was patient when we were frantic, inspired confidence when we were intimidated, and cautioned us when we were overzealous. She never made us feel like we were small potatoes (even though we were), and we will certainly hire her again when the time comes for us to upsize. In the meantime, we couldn't recommend her services more highly. She is as sure-footed a guide as you will find in the Boston market." - wmckboston

"Julia helped my husband and me rent out our unit in Brookline while we lived in NYC. Even though we had never met in person, the whole process went smoothly and efficiently. She was very responsive and attended to details. She kept us updated in detail frequently through email and helped us connect to and provide access for repair work. Julia made the long-distance renting process so easy and pleasant! We highly recommend her!" - zuser20160320
