Julie was a great agent to work with in selling our Santa Cruz home. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns. She has a very keen sense of the market and what potential buyers are looking for,and advised us well on the kinds of changes and updates that would bemost effective. Julie also had good connections with tradespeople who were needed to carry out the work. As a result, the house sold immediately on the offer date above the asking price. We're very glad to have had Julie as our agent!- Robert and Mary Ann Franson

Julie helped us find a home on the Upper Westside of Santa Cruz. We wanted to live on the Westlake area near our daughter and grandchildren. We had almost given up on finding a home there and Julie found us a home off-market. She negotiated a good price and theentire transaction went very smoothly.- Bob and Sally Grant

After Julie found the home in Westlake for us, we needed to put our home in Scotts Valley on the market. Julie and Christie came in and gave us ideas on editing our furniture and handled semi-staging the home.Within 10 days we had 6 offers and it sold for over asking price. Julie had great attention to detail, was a good communicator and the entireprocess went very well.- Bob and Sally Grant

My experience selling my home with Julie Hansmann went very well fromstart to finish. She is efficient, knowledgeable and has the experience to get things done with attention to detail. She has the contacts for anything that is needed. She kept me informed along the way, always explaining how things work which made me feel very comfortable. What I thought might be overwhelming for me was step by step quite smooth. I would recommend using Julie to anyone who is looking to sell or buy ahome- Carol Nelson.

Julie was fantastic with helping us sell a property remotely. She made excellent suggestions for improvements and oversaw the work as wewere unable to be on-site. All of her effort and expertise contributed to us receiving multiple offers above our asking price. Julie then was able to effectively negotiate with the prospective buyers to secure an offersignificantly above our asking price. She even made sure the buyer’s credit was solid and we could close very quickly. We highly recommend her as a realtor. Julie made the process much less stressful than Iimagined it would be and we really enjoyed working with her!- Andy and Heather Marsh

It was a pleasure to work with Julie Hansmann in the recent sale of mylongtime home in the Seabright neighborhood. She made a daunting and complicated process go smoothly, with careful attention to all of the details of a real estate transaction. As the seller, I benefited from Julie’s broad experience and good instincts for what buyers find desirable when looking at properties. Best of all, Julie is a champion communicator, keeping me informed during every aspect of the sale. I wish I had another house to sell - I’d be happy to work with Julie again!- Carolyn Shimek

It was a pleasure to work with Julie Hansmann on the purchase of my new home. She is a consummate professional with unparalleledknowledge of the Santa Cruz market and local neighborhoods. Julie brought to the table a quiet calm, yet enthusiastic demeanor, to whatcan be a frustrating and difficult process in the current highly competitive marketplace. She is encouraging and analytical without being pushy. Her deep knowledge of the building industry was also adefinite plus which allowed her to help me digest the inspection reportsand provide immediate feedback on repairs, improvements and theattendant costs. If you’re looking for an organized, knowledgeable andthorough realtor, I would highly recommend Julie.- Sandra Zapf

Julie was a vital, patient, attentive, and caring realtor who helped uspurchase our first home! When we first expressed interest in a place, wecontacted Julie and four days later over a weekend we had an offer accepted! Julie went out of her way to make sure our questions were answered (even tracking down contacts at the HOA to answer specific questions about paint colors used), and made us feel cared for and well taken care of! On the day we got our keys, it was clear she was incredibly excited for us, and we were so grateful to have her guide us through the journey of buying our home.- Emma Ware & Carl Saffron

We called Julie about a house she had for sale. When we realized that the house was too small for us, she immediately told us about 3 otherhouses that would fit our needs. We found one that was perfect for our growing family. We made an offer in a multiple offer situation and gotthe house, due to Julie’s good guidance. We love it here and are so happy.- T.M

After we found our new house to buy, we needed a quick sale on ourcurrent home. Julie came in and made suggestions as to how we needed to de-personalize our home. We did that, and she even brought in someof her own staging items to stage the home. It looked great and sold quickly even in a slow winter market time. We would highly recommend Julie.- T.M

My husband and I had used Julie to buy our home in Ben Lomond 2 years ago. When we decided to buy an income property, we contacted Julie. She knew the market well and showed us several properties. We secured this great rental on the Upper Westside. Then she even referredus to an exceptionally good property manager as well. She is well connected in the community, and we would definitely refer our friendsand family to Julie.- Shruti and Siddesh Shivaumaraswamy

A good friend of mine referred me to Julie. I had rented this home forover 30 years, and there was a lot of deferred maintenance. I walkedthrough the home with Julie one time (as I live in Hawaii) and trusted her to coordinate and hire a contractor to make the many repairsnecessary. She then also chose the paint colors, hired a painter,picked the carpet color and hired the carpet installer. She also worked closely with a landscaper to put in colorful plants and make improvements to the yards. It all turned out beautifully, and we had 8offers on the house and it sold for well over asking price. She was agreat communicator and I always felt that I was in good hands. I would highly recommend her to any sellers. Thanks Julie.- Beverly Quon

My fiance and I had been contemplating a move from San Francisco tothe Santa Cruz area, and after years of renting in the City we wereexcited to buy our first home and have more space for ourselves and our dogs. We randomly met Julie at an open house we attended (shewas the listing agent). We didn't end up having much interest in thehome she was selling, but she provided us with lots of detailedinformation about other open houses in the area based on what we told her we were looking for. We appreciated her honesty and willingness to go "Above and Beyond" to help us from our initial brief meeting with her. Several days later, we saw a listing for an adorable home in Bonny Doon,and decided to contact Julie due to the awesome first impression shemade. From the first time we saw the home, we knew it was "the one."Julie immediately took action to make it ours. She walked us througheach step of the home buying process, educating us thoroughly alongthe way. As first time home buyers, this was so appreciated! Julie isincredibly responsive and ensured that everything moved quickly and stayed on track. Another thing that really impressed us about Julie is her broad network of contractors. Prior to waiving contingencies, she was able to call out several contractors (roofer, general contractor, homeinspector, electrician) to check out the house and give us estimates onrepairs. Julie literally was able to get these individuals to come out withina matter of days. In the end, we are so thankful that we chose Julie tohelp us buy our dream home. She is so good at what she does and wasable to make the complicated process of buying a home as easy aspossible. Highly recommend working with Julie, she is a gem!- Trent & Vanessa Gordon

Julie was very proactive as a buyers agent sending us listings that metour predetermined specifications. She did not send us details ofirrelevant properties. Julie arranged multiple appointments with a familymember, often more than one on the same day, and she would eitherdrive us to the property or meet us there at a pre-determined time. She was always very punctual. In addition, Julie offered good insights and shewent out of her way to ensure that we were buying a house that met ourneeds rather than trying to sell us the most expensive house. This was very refreshing. She has also offered to help us even after buying theproperty should something come up. We will definitely use Julie again if we are either selling or buying a house in the Santa Cruz area.- Kendall and Karen Morrison

When we met Julie, we were new to the Santa Cruz area & had just abasic idea of what we were really looking for in our new home. Within afew weeks, Julie helped us streamline our home search, while ensuringwe were comfortable with every aspect of our decision. She thenpatiently worked with us & accompanied us on all our visits until wefound our dream home. There were times when she had to wait to workaround our little boys’ schedules & she did so with no complaints! Julienot only helped us negotiate our offer but also helped us do a thoroughreview of the home inspection report, while offering valuable inputs onwhat needed the most attention. We were pleasantly surprised that shewas there to ensure all our questions for the seller were answered & thesale process was completed without any hassles. Julie is highlyprofessional, organized, knowledgeable, and very thorough in herapproach. We loved working with her! We would like to recommend herto anyone looking to buy their dream home.

My husband and I could not have found a more perfect partner to helpus land our dream home. Julie was phenomenal from start to finish. Shewalked us through every step of the buying process – from guiding us through the challenging California housing market and helping us thoroughly evaluate each property to connecting us with the right experts to help us pounce on the home we loved. I’ve worked with other realtors before, but Julie’s deep knowledge in both real estate and the home building industry put her far ahead of the pack. She also brings with her an invaluable network of general contractors, plumbers, electricians and other professionals who provided us with complimentary estimates on potential home improvements before we released our contingencies, helping us feel truly confident in our bigpurchase. Given today’s busy market, most Santa Cruz contractors are booked 2-3 months out. Thanks to Julie, they were willing to meet with us within a matter of days – a true testament to her character,reputation and her commitment to helping us make the best (and mostinformed!) choice for our family. The first day we met, Julie told us she strives to provide “Above and Beyond service.” I now have a new definition for “above and beyond.” If you are looking for a true partner tohelp you start your home-buying journey, call Julie!- Matt Rogers and Liz Burkhart

Julie is highly professional and organized for success. Julie and I had ahigh level of engagement over an extended period as she wasinstrumental and involved with all of the work preparing the property forsale. She provided a portfolio of service providers that was extremelyhelpful and they delivered high quality results. In particular, the company that staged the house was creative and their genre for the house fit perfectly. Julie has a great eye for design has a solid background inconstruction practices. The sales process was a whirl wind of activity and the demand driven by Julies marketing efforts were very successful.Ultimately we received many qualified offers, Julie spent hours evaluatingthe offers for me and we selected a buyer offering well over the asking price, all cash, and with no contingencies. I could not be happier with theoutcome and Julie’s excellent work.- Pat Hamb

As a first time buyer I knew I needed an agent with solid experience ofthe whole real estate process. Since our family is new to the Santa Cruzarea, I knew I needed someone with deep local knowledge. I am so happy to have found Julie Hansmann. She gave me real attention,introducing me to the neighborhoods around our target location so thatI had a solid sense of what it would be like to live in each place. She listens well, and if I mentioned anything about my taste or my husband's,or our interests, she was ready to show me how each house wouldanswer those quirks or support our hobbies and habits. Julie showed meonly one house slightly above our price range, and when I said "no, that's more than we agreed to spend" stuck to the budget absolutely. She pointed out qualities of workmanship I didn't know to look for, as well as a quiet heads-up when there were reasons a house might not be rightfor us. And the whole time she's been ready to find out information I needed, or help me locate trades and services to do our due diligence. I was a little timid going into this process, but now we have our home andare totally happy. I couldn't wish for a better, more helpful realtor. Best part is, it’s all true. Thank you!- Leslie and Jim Ingham
