"Julie has rented out my apartment twice now – both times with grace and efficiency. She is an excellent judge of character, twice finding responsible tenants willing and able to survive a tedious application process. Julie’s no-nonsense style is refreshing – and it works. She astutely anticipated my questions, kept me informed and engaged – while letting me get on with my “day-job”. Her quick work and ability to gain people’s confidence has made it easy for me to be a landlord, something I never thought I would be." -Sarah Renner, Brooklyn Heights
"Julie Cohen is the Obi-Wan Kinobi of Brooklyn Real Estate - seriously. I lived in Brooklyn for 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 light saber, but she's pretty amazing at helping her clients navigate through the Brooklyn real estate market." - Todd Hedgpeth, Boerum Hill
"After a long search, just when I lost all hope in finding the right house 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 de Sabastian, Bedford Stuyvesant
