"Julie Cohen is the Obi-Wan Kenobi of Brooklyn Real Estate - seriously. I lived in Brooklyn fifteen years before heading west. I met Julie when I bought my condo and I just knew immediately that I could always trust her. She is still my broker - and as a property owner operating a rental property from a couple thousand miles away - there is simply no better person than Julie Cohen. I have absolute confidence and comfort with her - and that makes the entire endeavor so much more manageable. She doesn't wear a hooded robe or wield a lightsaber, but she's pretty amazing at helping her clients navigate through the Brooklyn real estate market." - Todd/Boerum Hill

"Julie provided exceptional service to us when we rented our Brooklyn townhouse. Julie was relentless and instrumental in helping us to successfully navigate some issues we were having with a neighboring developer. Her trustworthy guidance made us feel supported and empowered while navigating through the process. Julie was in constant with us, and not reassured us through the process, she made sure it got done. Julie helped us successfully lease our townhouse sooner than we expected, and with exactly the results that we wanted. There is no one else we would turn to our next real estate transaction. Julie has us as clients life. If you want a real estate broker that exhibits a high level of experience, diligence, attention to detail, responsiveness, and care – she’s the one." - Eric/Carroll Gardens

"I was looking to purchase in the Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope vicinity when I met Julie. She immediately took initiative and found me a 3 family in Carroll Gardens. Since then, I have relied heavily on her broker knowledge to keep my building at 100% occupancy. Julie's honesty and candor, along with her team, brought in the best tenants of moral and economic fiber. Not once have I dealt with riff-raff. I have continually referred others to her group because of their character and reliability. Thank you Julie!" - Jonathan/Carroll Gardens

"Julie Cohen did a superb job with the sale of my condo in Williamsburg. As a first time seller, the sale was very personal and Julie did a masterful job guiding me through the steps and informing me of all the twists and turns I should expect. Additionally, I knew that she always had my best interests at heart and I trusted her advice. Julie is personable, extremely well prepared, very knowledgeable and professional. It was a pleasure working with someone who takes her job so seriously and who is able to answer any question with authority. I was thrilled with the experience and my outcome. My disappointment is that I no longer get to work with Julie. I highly recommend her." - Mark/Williamsburg

"As first-time buyers, we could not have asked a better broker. Not was Julie knowledgeable and dedicated, but we really felt that she had our best interest in mind as well. Navigating a complicated sale, we had a lot of questions and concerns; and throughout the process, Julie was an indispensable resource and our tireless advocate. We could not be happier with the end result! Years later, she came through again when we listed. She is definitely one of Brooklyn’s best brokers." - Soo/Red Hook

" Julie did a great job handling the sale of our condominium. We ended up selling our asking price, and the closing went smoothly. Julie was courteous and responsive. I don't think we could have done it without her. " - Michael/Boerum Hill

"As a landlord with one building in the Brooklyn Heights market I rely heavily on broker knowledge of what the going rents are in the area. Julie Cohen & the rest of her team have always given me helpful market advice, and over the last two years, they have helped to keep occupancy near 100%. The applications presented are ALWAYS complete, straightforward, and of the highest caliber, as are the tenants they bring us. I wish I had more brokers like Julie or buildings in Brooklyn Heights!" - Michael/Brooklyn Heights

"Julie has been our trusted real estate broker 10+ years. She has a balanced view of the market, knows her area of Brooklyn intimately and is very proactive. " - Juan and Bebe/Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens & Park Slope

"I am extremely happy with my condo purchase and I am exceedingly happy that Julie was the broker on the sale. She is very knowledgeable and never hesitates to offer her professional connections when needed. She was very helpful through the whole process, from the 1st visit to the closing. All negotiations were handled in a professional and proficient manner. Of course I would recommend Julie to any buyer/seller without any hesitation!" - Jean-Louis/Carroll Gardens

"We used Julie two real estate transactions - both buying and selling. As buyer broker Julie encouraged us to purchase an apartment that needed work but had amazing potential. We are immensely grateful her advice, since the apartment was a wonderful place to live and ended up being an excellent investment. When we asked Julie to sell the apartment (after living in it eight years) she managed the transaction with skill and ease. The apartment was on the market two weeks before she obtained several very good offers from qualified buyers. Clearly Julie has excellent negotiation skills as well as the needed experience (and the indispensable network of industry professionals) to deal with issues as they arise with hands on solutions. Her warm, dynamic and friendly personality helped us feel more at ease and confident during this (for us rather intimidating) process. We highly recommend Julie as your broker in Brownstone Brooklyn." - Sonja/Cobble Hill

"I had the pleasure of working with Julie Cohen for the sale of my apartment. Not was she extremely knowledgeable of the market, she also worked tirelessly to promote the apartment. We sold my -op apartment at asking price and the closing was a smooth and stress-less process. I highly recommend working with Julie!" - Alexandra/Brooklyn Heights

"Julie, we all thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We know how hard and devoted you worked, you were the most honest and devoted broker that we ever met. I even wanted to the buyers to wish them “Mazel Tov”, so please tell them in our name that they should have “Mazel and Bracha” just like we had and even more Simchas. May you always be successful serving the public. Wishing you the best." - Shmuel and Baila/Greenwood Heights

"I have worked with Julie Cohen two times in the past and will continue to work with her in the future. Julie is well connected and through her personal and professional networks was able to find me the perfect rental apartment. She later worked her magic once again and found my partner and me the 2 bedroom plus terrace loft that we currently live in now. We could not have done it without her. Both of these transactions flowed seamlessly from start to finish. If you're looking to rent or buy, Julie has the needed edge, enthusiasm, and experience you need. If we ever want to sell (which we don’t) we would not hesitate to have Julie act as our listing broker. Seriously, if you need a diva broker with razor sharp brokering skills look no further. her immediately! We are forever grateful." - Raymond/Columbia Waterfront District & Boerum Hill

"After a long search, just when I lost all hope in finding the right brownstone for us in Brooklyn, I had the incredible good luck of meeting Julie through a friend of mine. She miraculously found the perfect place right away and worked with great energy and professionalism until the deal was closed. I am forever grateful!" - Isabel/Bedford Stuyvesant

"Julie Cohen is a great broker – on time, responsive and focused and she was essential in helping us buy our brownstone in Brooklyn. It is difficult to actually find and close on a in the current Brooklyn market, but Julie was fantastic. We looked at many properties through the winter in challenging conditions and Julie was very good at filtering out the noise and actually focusing on the strong leads. After a long journey we finally managed to close in the spring and are very happy with our property. If you want a strong broker who values your time and priorities, Julie comes highly recommended. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a property." - Neil and Elisha/Crown Heights

"My family and I could not be happier. We love our new loft. We purchased through Julie after months of searching. From the moment we met to the moment we closed she was always focused, available, possessed market insight, and had the needed negotiation skills necessary to navigate a complicated transaction. This sale would not have closed without Julie. She is a pro and her years of experience and confidence is what all buyers need in today's market." - Josh/Greenwood Heights

"We were looking into buying an apartment for a while. We saw this apartment that we fell in love with but the layout was challenging. Julie encouraged us to purchase the apartment for its uniqueness, architectural details and also for its resale potential. We felt very comfortable asking her questions and were very pleased with her promptness answering them all. It was a pleasure working with Julie. She is very experienced and very professional. She is straight to the point and has a wonderful warm personality. I have and will continue to refer my friends and colleagues to Julie. She is the one you need." - Marta/Boerum Hill

"Julie is by far the most pleasant and forthright real estate agent we have dealt with in many years living in NYC. The apartment we found with her is amazing and has all the features we were looking for. She was a pleasure to work with and we have already recommended her to several friends." - Sara and Sean/Cobble Hill

"Julie went above and beyond to help us buy our townhouse in Boerum Hill. We appreciated her tenacity, patience and guidance while we purchased a ''fixer-upper'' home. Working with Julie was wonderful." - Jason/Boerum Hill

"Purchasing a condominium for your daughters can be, if nothing else, extremely stressful, but Julie Cohen somehow found a way to relax us, reassure us and guide us through the process. Her patience, insight, and knowledge of the market was very comforting. She always found a way to ease our concerns without feeling as if we were being patronized, which was the feeling we often felt from other realtors. Julie became so helpful and concerned about our needs, her honesty was real and refreshing. She allowed us all the time we needed to look around the apartment. She showed great patience and insisted we take our time. “This is a big step. Don’t rush”, she said. She was amazing. With Julie, we never felt like any questions or concerns we had were stupid. When we first saw the apartment, we were apprehensive that the space was way too small for two girls, but Julie encouraged us to look at the possibilities. She walked us through many suggestions on how to we could make the space work. With excitement and enthusiasm, idea after another flowed from her mouth and before we knew it, we actually became excited at the prospect of having this apartment for our girls. Julie was wonderful. Truth be told, we don’t believe any other real estate agent could have kept us interested in this apartment. Julie, however, made it our reality. Julie was always available and always on top of things. With her guidance, things ran so smoothly that before we knew it, the condominium was ours. We are so glad we let our defenses down and put our trust in Julie. The apartment is perfect; just like Julie said it would be. Our daughters love the neighborhood, the building, the apartment and their independence. Julie’s warmth, optimism, humor, expertise, friendliness and reassuring personality turned what started out as a stressful experience into a wonderful and exciting one. If you are looking for a real estate broker who truly cares, look no further. Thank you Julie for being so approachable, so knowledgeable and so caring. We hope to see you again soon, and next time, you will represent us." - Gail and David/Carroll Gardens

"Julie knows the Brooklyn market, and certainly does create effective marketing materials. She our apartment in one day. Need I say more?" - Victoria and Alfred/Park Slope

"Julie Cohen is an exceptional real estate agent. We have worked with Julie to rent an apartment and ultimately purchase the same apartment. She conducts her business with poise and always wears a smile. Julie is patient, understanding and prompt, plus she's simply a joy to be around during what can be a very stressful transaction. We'd recommend her to anyone!" - Rebecca and Jon/Brooklyn Heights

"Working with Julie was by far the best experience I have had with a broker. She quickly our Cobble Hill Mews home. That was our third transaction with her. We plan on moving back to New York, and when we are ready to, she will be the first to know" - Michael/Cobble Hill & Carroll Gardens

"Julie helped me sell my apartment and, on two occasions, buy a new one. I keep coming back to her for a reason: I have never found a broker who knows the market as well as she does. I recommend her highly!" - Tamara/Cobble Hill & Boerum Hill

"When I was trying to sell my Boerum Hill apartment, I worked with both the big agencies and some supposed neighborhood "specialists". After months without a single offer, I switched courses and chose Julie to represent the property. A few weeks later, I accepted an all-cash offer at full asking price. I would earnestly recommend Julie to anyone in brownstone Brooklyn and beyond." - John/Boerum Hill

"Julie was able to find the perfect neighborhood and apartment for my wife and me to start our family in. A few years later, we were looking to sell. Julie advised us on simple renovations to increase value, listed our apartment in a tough market, and it within eight days. We made a handsome profit, which helped pay for our next home. Julie''s personal approach, on-demand availability, and portfolio of reliable mortgage and legal services were invaluable." - Ernest/Brooklyn Heights

"Julie found us a fantastic and well qualified tenant for our rental property in literally the first week we listed it with her. She took care of everything and it was an excellent experience for everyone involved." - Jason/Greenwood Heights

"I not bought my apartment in Brooklyn from Julie Cohen, but I also asked to have her be my seller agent when it came time to sell that same apartment nine years later. She is very proficient in her job and has a large network of professionals who were a great help during the whole process. She was excellent at bringing all parties involved to the table and getting the deal done in a timely fashion. She was quick to respond to my many questions and did so in a cheerful, engaging manner. I felt that she maximized the value of my apartment and I was very pleased with the outcome. All in all, she was a pleasure to work with and I recommend her very highly." - Stephen/Carroll Gardens

"Julie turned me into a buyer. Everything from offer to close went smooth and fast and relied on her - the seller's broker. I shopped my dream condo apartment over ten years and met hundreds of brokers along the way. Julie stood out from the crowd as honest and knowledgeable. I was a tough customer due to my research, valuation analysis and study of the NYC real estate market (and background as an investment analyst). Julie new all the answers to my tough due diligence questions, details most brokers couldn’t answer. This sped up my transaction which closed in less than two months from my initial offer. I highly recommend Julie." - Sonia/Carroll Gardens
