Testimonials

Seller on Eastside

Julie is highly professional and organized for success. Julie and I had a high level of engagement over an extended period as she was instrumental and involved with all of the work preparing the property for sale. She provided a portfolio of service providers that was extremely helpful 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 in construction practices. The sales process was a whirlwind of activity and the demand driven by Julies marketing efforts were very successful. Ultimately we received many qualified offers, Julie spent hours evaluating the 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 the outcome and Julie’s excellent work.

Seller in Scotts Valley

My husband and I used Julie to sell our home in Scotts Valley. It was large complex property, that included land, a pool and workshop. She was attentive and hardworking throughout the transaction, she marketed the home well and we had a successful closing. We would definitely use Julie again.

First Time Home Buyers in Scotts Valley

As a first time buyer I knew I needed an agent with solid experience of the whole real estate process. Since our family is new to the Santa Cruz area, 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 that I 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 would answer those quirks or support our hobbies and habits.
Julie showed me only 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 right for 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 and are totally happy. I couldn't wish for a better, more helpful realtor.
Best part is, it’s all true.
Thank you!

First Time Home Buyers in Aptos

"My husband and I could not have found a more perfect partner to help us land our dream home. Julie was phenomenal from start to finish. She walked 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 complementary estimates on potential home improvements before we released our contingencies, helping us feel truly confident in our big purchase. 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 most informed!) 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 to help you start your home-buying journey, call Julie!"

Buyer of Retirement Home

My wife and I were in need of a real estate agent in Santa Cruz and a friend recommended Julie. She was wonderful to deal with. Pleasant, kind, very professional and listened to what were looking for in a home. She showed us a variety of properties over the course of several weekends. We currently live in Sacramento so she made time for us in her busy schedule to meet with us when we were available. We highly recommend to anyone looking for a home to contact Julie. She is the best!

My real estate experience with Julie Hansmann has been wonderful.
She is honest, diligent, and always protected my interest. She handled all the paper work and communication with the other agents and parties, and I always had positive results.
I was so confident in her abilities, we even partnered on a few spec homes together, always with a good outcome. I would definitely recommend Julie for all of your real estate needs.

Buyer & Seller

Julie helped me purchase a piece of land to build a home for speculation. She was instrumental in giving me good advice on what type of home to build and what price it would eventually sell it for. When it came time sell, she handled the sale and it all went very smoothly. She is knowledgeable, hard- working, honest and a good communicator. I really appreciated all her expertise, and would highly recommend her to all my friends.
