Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Warners, NY.
Judy was simply fantastic! I can't put into words how very helpful she was. My family was relocated due to my husbands job from Long Island to Syracuse. It was a huge move for us especially being that we were unfamiliar with the area. Judy dropped everything and took the time to show us numerous neighborhoods- near and far, house for house, different developments, new construction etc etc. She told us about the town and school districts. She gave us numerous resources to help us find exactly what we wanted. Most importantly, she was incredibly flexible and readily available to fit our schedule. We found our dream home and couldn't be happier. I would recommend Judy 100 times over, she is simply the best!

Judy was absolutely wonderful to work with for me, especially as a first time home buyer. I had to take a break from my home search for almost a year to sort out a credit issue and she didn't give up on me, but also, she was never pushy either. Then when that was resolved we jumped back into it and she helped me find the perfect house. She is very patient, responsive and knowledgeable, she truly made the process so much easier. Can't recommend highly enough!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Fayetteville, NY.
We decided to relocate to Central NY from NYC and didn't know what we wanted or where we wanted to live. We didn't give Judy very much to work with, and were constantly changing our minds. She was incredibly patient, showing us different neighborhoods and listening to what we liked and didn't like. She stuck with us, guided us, and finally got us our dream house!!! She was always there to answer questions and provide insight. Even from afar, She became so much more than an agent, she is a friend. THE BEST AGENT IN CENTRAL NY!!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in New Hartford, NY.
Judy helped me to purchase my first home. As a single woman with few home improvement skills this was, in many ways, a scary venture. Judy helped me through a LONG search. She was patient yet persistent and helped me find and purchase the perfect home for me. When it came time to negotiate a deal I know I got the best deal possible thanks to Judy's negotiation skills.

Judy aggressively defended our interests throughout the whole first time home-buying process. She patiently waited for us to find the right home, and when we found ones we liked she was equally patient with our many questions about the process and pros and cons of the various options available to us as we navigated the process of looking at homes, making offers, negotiating the terms and conditions of the sale, and attempting to hold the seller to their contract (not even her job, but she did it admirably).
We started looking at houses with Judy a year ago and only now finished closing on our house. Even after closing the deal Judy is still helping us figure out some post-closing issues.
When looking at a house Judy stayed mostly in the background. If you want her opinion you'll have to ask for it (which worked wonderfully for us, although we often asked her opinion). She had excellent knowledge of the whole area surrounding Syracuse, and could almost universally tell you where the nearest ____ was. (Grocery store, gas station, restaurants, etc). Anything she did not know she would find out, and we never had to follow up to get an answer. Most often we'd receive a text message or email within a few hours of asking a question.
We made several offers before one stuck. In each case Judy patiently wrote up a contract, explained the process, and helped us decide how much to offer. Because of the personal nature of buying a home she was more hesitant to offer her opinion on the value of each home, but we never felt like she was letting us pay too much for a given home (whether or not it was too much for *us* personally was our business anyway).
During negotiations Judy was on top of her game. Any question we had was answered promptly and usefully. She managed the communication between lender, lawyer, seller, and us artfully and always in our best interest. We had many issues with holding the seller to their word, and Judy was our first and best defender.
Judy even showed up at closing, which I'm told is unusual. It was a good thing, because there were several breaches of contract which our lawyer would have let slip had she not been there.
Judy is extremely enthusiastic about her job, very knowledgable, and very, very likely to find you a home you'll love.

This young couple was such a pleasure to help find a home. Thanks for your great review. Many blessings to you both.
I wasn't sure exactly what type of property I was looking for. Judy showed me a variety of properties until we found my house. The property we found was bank owned and had a complicated proccess that had to be gone through. Judy took care of everything and made sure we made the closing date. Im very happy with the house and got it for a great price. I've already recommended her to my friends and family. Judy is the best in the business!!!
