Client Testimonials

★★★★★
"Hello Julie, This card is just a small token of gratitude for a job well done. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into selling 1 Eucalyptus Rd. If someone asks me if I know a good residential real estate agent in the Bay Area I'll say 'no, but I know a great one!' You're 'the best' " - Your pal always, Mark Englund

★★★★★
"Working with Julie was everything we could have hoped for. Her intelligence, sensitivity , and tenacity were on full display during the six months it took us to find the right house. When we were near despair, she was full of encouragement. When we were too aggressive, she counseled patience. When we were too timid, she knew how to bolster our resolve. She wanted us to buy the house WE wanted, and did not rest until that happened. And it did. We bought a great house that is right for us. Our opinion: Julie won't steer you wrong." - Morgan Forsey and Tony Taccone

★★★★★
"Julie Nachtwey represented us during the purchase of our Berkeley, CA property. Her high level of professionalism, expertise, personal and professional integrity, wonderful enthusiasm, and attention to detail made us feel like we were in the best of hands throughout the buying process. Julie is extremely committed to her clients through the longterm, and in fact, she and her husband, Fred, have remained close friends throughout the 12 years that we have known her. We would absolutely recommend Julie to anyone who is in the market for a house in the east bay." - Nicole & Rob Wrubel

★★★★★
"I found Julie Nachtwey to be one of the most creative and dedicated realtors that I have ever worked with. She was creative in staging the house, pricing the house, and in getting in offers that exceeded our list price and our expectations. She was on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I don't think that there is a realtor in the industry that works harder, puts more of her personal self into the sale or is more creative than Julie. I would recommend her without hesitation. " - Susan Pohl, Formerly of 12 Alvarado, Berkeley, CA

★★★★★
"We moved from NYC to the Bay area. One day we looked at a house in the Berkeley Hills and ran into Julie. She told us about a house that might be just what we wanted. She was right and helped us craft a winning offer among multiple offers. Through the years we stayed in touch with Julie. The time came to move back to NYC. As usual, Julie moved quickly and professionally and handled everything from Soup-to-Nuts: price point/pricing strategy to repairs to staging. Julie is unique, in many ways, and a true gem/asset when it comes to these difficult events and transitions. I give her the highest recommendation. " - Richard Reiben & Nancy Boissy

★★★★★
"This is to thank you for all the work you did in selling my house. I never realized that a real estate agent could be so fantastic at getting all those pre-sale essentials done. You hired someone to haul, someone to clean, someone to paint, you staged the house beautifully. And you put up with my being entirely too busy to take proper part! You are an amazing agent and I would recommend you to anyone. " - Richard M. Scheffler, Professor UC Berkeley

★★★★★
"We are so grateful we had someone like Julie working with us. We were working under some time constraints, and Julie was able to guide us through a series of purchasing scenarios - single family homes, duplexes, homes with in-law units, and homes with rental units. She was both energetic and patient, as we quickly weighed our options and sorted things out. Once we decided on a path, Julie was able to help us hone in on a property that was really ideal for us. We are still amazed that she was able to devote so much effort in a short amount of time, and help us through an undertaking in which we never felt rushed. Unfamiliar with the market and the process in California, we truly relied on her local knowledge, experience, and understanding. We could not be happier with our purchase, our home, and our neighborhood; it's a perfect fit. " - Winston Chou and Donna Castro

★★★★★
"Recently, both my parents died owning a more than fully furnished Berkeley home in need of some sprucing up prior to sale. To make matters more complicated; I live at the opposite end of the state, the house was owned by more than one person, was part of a trust, we are a blended family and a lawyer was involved. Things were a bit stressful at best. Julie was a remarkable source of information as I needed contact with charities, auto repair, trash hauler, dump info, repair people, painters, window washers, stagers, colorist, etc. I had never lived in Berkeley and knew no one. I moved into the house to begin the sale/clean out process and every one of Julie's referrals showed up and did their job!. I admit having had some doubts about the whole process. Julie mapped out a repair/ sale schedule that looked impossible to me, but all came out just as planned. The house sold in 4 days (for more than my asking price) after only one open house with 4 offers! All the staging, painting, planting, repairing, and scrubbing, was worth it! " - Linda Alley
