Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.3M in Palo Verde, Palo Alto, CA.
We got to meet Juliana by blessing of some kind, we were looking for a house in the Los Altos are because of the greenery which we like and have been driving around on weekends to various open houses. Our very first meeting was visiting a house listed for sale by Juliana, she was extremely professional, knowledgeable, courteous when we first met here at the listed house. ever since that first meeting we were learning everything about the bay area, the micro climates, the neighborhoods, places to go, etc..... and most importantly how real estate works in the bay area, nothing like other places we have learned. pretty amazing about the craziness out here, yes, we moved here from out of state. Any way Juliana trained us well on how to bid, bid and finally bite the bullet is went for it for the house we wanted. Let me share that it is not easy to adjust to the bay area ways of buying a house to live in, we endured with Juliana's expert knowledge, patience, guidance - we have been living in the house we bought with Julian's help for the past 5+ years and are still very happy that we went with her. We will select Juliana to be our agent again without hesitation.

Sold a home in 2014.
Met Juliana's team at an open house in 2012. Left my contact information as usual; I didn't expect much since I was not ready to buy a house by then. Surprisingly, I got a call from her on the same day. Got invited to see her bidding for her client. I was not totally sure what I saw until I put on my first bid for a house through a friend agent in 2013. I lost the bid for about $100k although that was still in my budget range. I realized that it needs more than just writing an offer to get the house that I want to live in in Bay area; particularly in the hot areas like Palo Alto. We are not buyers that have very deep pockets, but we want to give it a try.

We set up a meeting with Juliana in early January 2014 to discuss 'serious' plan to buy a house. Ironically, she forgot the meeting until we called her. Although my wife and I was disappointed a little, we had very good talk of many things that day. I think that she won our trust.

We went through 4 biddings with Juliana's team: Jenny, HSBC (Cindy Chen) before we got the best deal that we can afford. We make decision by ourselves based on the very good information and analysis from Juliana. As Juliana told me several times, her value is her ability to nail the deals in any difficult bidding wars. Everyone has his/her own taste and situation. As long as the buyers make their minds, Juliana and her team can and will find the best deal for them.

We highly recommend Juliana Lee and her team to anyone; literally every serious buyer no matter how much cash you have.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $1.275M in Palo Alto, CA.
"If you want results, go for Juliana Lee"

In less than two months, Juliana helped us sold our two properties with multiple offers and bought a single family house in Palo Alto successfully that we can call it our home sweet home. When my wife and I decided to upgrade to a single family home in Palo Alto, we realized we needed help from a pro. Not any pro, but a pro champion. Juliana’s name seemed ubiquitous in the real estate industry, especially in Palo Alto area, so we decided to give her service a try. Our properties were sold at record high in less than a week. For the single house we are buying, she negotiated a 45-day closing contingency. This was a rare feast in a market that had limited inventories in the last few months, and all 3 transactions were connected seamlessly. We had to admit that it took us some times to absorb the shock after first meeting with Juliana. She did not try to sugarcoat the aggressive nature of current market. She told us what would take to achieve our goal in a very straightforward way, and the key things are to trust her, have patience and take actions. You have to trust Juliana if you are buying or selling houses because she is on your side, and she always puts your interest at first. Lastly, I want to recognize a real A-team Juliana built. In every steps of the way of our buying and selling, she had right team members and professionals to close the actions effectively and efficiently Again, when you’re buying or selling, if you want results, go for Juliana.

Sold a home in 2014.
We know Juliana for more than 13 years. During the period she helped us buying and selling our properties a couple of time. Recently, I saw a beautiful house, but many people had eyes on it too. Juliana asked me whether I love the house or not. If yes, she would fight for me to get the house. I said yes, and she did get the house for us. At the same time, Juliana helped us to sell our old house, so the new house can be covered. Juliana's work was very impressive. She updated us with the news about the bidding and we finally got our dream house and got our old house sold. We trust Juliana to lead the process in every step. She is knowledgeable and very experience and will work the best for her client.

Bought a home in 2014.
We met Juliana in the first week of January 2014 and by end of the month she already completed the deal. It took only 3 weeks between the first meeting and the accepted offer in Palo Alto, even though we were looking for a house for more than 15 months through another agent and were very frustrated after losing out on several bids in this tough market. We are still in shock that it actually happened!!

Juliana was absolutely exceptional in terms of finding the right house, using her network of buyers and sellers' agents along with all other fabulous and very efficient support staff to make the deal happen.

Juliana does it with utmost ease and makes her clients meet their goals of buying their dream house even in this tough market, whether it is Palo Alto or other hot areas.

Best part was that she was reachable any time of the day, night or weekends for all kinds of questions, trends, comparative analysis, and by generously providing her 30+ years of knowledge to work in our favor.

We are extremely happy and thrilled about the outcome.

We could have avoided all frustrations as well as saved a lot of money, had we met her earlier. We believe it is better late than never.

Juliana's entire team that worked on our project was filled with high energy, extremely professional and super charged from start to finish with nonstop follow up. We have never seen this level of positive handholding.

We highly recommend Juliana without any reservation what so ever to anyone who is looking for a house either to sell or buy. You will be in safe hands.

Bought a home in 2014.
Before I met Juliana, I always thought all real estate agents were the same. Juliana completely changed my mindset about what a good realtor truly is. She is definitely the top agent!

Although she may come across as being straight forward, I appreciated her honesty and her kind of work style is what is needed in such a highly competitive market like Palo Alto. At the same time, she didn't push me to buy anything I didn't feel comfortable with. In fact, she talked me out of buying a house that she did not think was worthwhile. That said a lot. She eventually found me a house in Palo Alto at a wonderful value and I am so thrilled!

This accomplishment was all because of her credibility, diligence and incredible wiliness and effort to help her clients. She also has an awesome team who provides amazing customer service for any questions or needs you may have relating to real estate transactions.

If you want to win in this hot housing market, Juliana is the agent to go to!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.175M in University South, Palo Alto, CA.
On a whim, I attended one of Juliana’s workshops a few months ago. Juliana’s reputation in Palo Alto is certainly impressive. In our first meeting, I voiced my concern that I could not afford to purchase a house in Palo Alto.

As a true testament to Juliana’s strong reputation and networking in Palo Alto, I was not only able to buy my dream home, but for $50,000 lower than the asking price.

In the last few months, I made a few offers, each with the guidance of Juliana and Jenny. Their wisdom and expertise of the market allowed me to make smart offers but they also knew when to PULL BACK.

Right when I was starting to lose hope in our search, Juliana and Jenny found my dream home. Having experienced first hand the competitive nature of bidding wars, I was very skeptical that my offer would be accepted.

It probably comes as no surprise that I’m writing to express my sincere appreciation to the “A team”: Juliana Lee, Jenny, and bank of America.

I’ve always dreamed of being a homeowner, but over the last 10 years, I’ve had to move around and establish temporary homes in multiple cities across the US. Finally in 2012, my dream job brought me back to the Bay Area. I was excited, yet very intimidated, to start the search. Like many new first time homebuyers, I quickly became discouraged given the fast-paced and competitive nature of today’s housing market.

Prior to the offer, I felt well taken care of, but little did I know that Juliana’s team extends to far more than just the search for a home. Juliana introduced me to Gus at Bank of America who was able to offer competitive interest rates compared to other lenders. Even during the holiday season, Gus worked after hours on my loan. Unfortunately a few days after my offer was accepted, Gus had to travel. I was nervous that my loan would be handed off to just anyone at Bank of America. But after my first meeting with Antero, any anxiety that I had was dispelled. Antero’s attention to detail, comprehensiveness and patience in answering even the silliest of questions was astonishing. He and his team including Concepcion worked at all hours to make sure everything was in place. Antero was very personable, so much so that I felt comfortable bringing up any questions or concerns that I had – and I had A LOT. Though there were a few bumps in the process, Antero always kept me in the loop, found alternative solutions to any problems that arose, and advocated on my behalf. They provided just the most personalized customer service that far exceeded my expectations.

It may be a while before I will be looking for another home, but without a doubt, I will be going to Juliana and her “A team.”



Sincerely,

Ms. Chang

Bought a Single Family home in 1996 for approximately $600K in Duveneck - St. Francis, Palo Alto, CA.
I met Juliana 20 years ago through my former employer who bought and sold home by Juliana. She stood out with how well she listened to me, her knowledge, and how she gave advice, but let me make my own decisions. I vowed to myself to stay with her until I succeeded buying a home. When I wanted to purchase my home in Palo Alto, I was a student who had just graduated from Stanford University. However, Juliana encouraged me to go forward and found a neighborhood with a cul-de-sac that I love because it was peaceful and not visited by strangers. With no real estate experience, I was very cautious about my purchase. I spent extra time to go around the neighborhood and tried to validate every fact she presented to me. In the end, I realized I spent time and energy researching and only discovered what she had already told me. We made a total of 13 offers before I made a successful offer. One and half months before I was successful, she urged me to increase the offer price to buy a home I liked which had an 8,000 sf lot. Even though I could stretch my budget, I didn’t want to offer the price she recommended because I was afraid of paying more than I had to. It was the biggest regret I have in my life because I later purchased my current home with the same price she suggested for the one I wanted, but the home I got had only a 6,000 sf lot. It was a costly lesson I learned. I’d like to say, if you’re working with Juliana, please DO NOT hesitate to take her suggestion when making an offer. With the experience Juliana has she will accurately tell you what it will cost to buy a home you want, and if you don’t want to regret your choice for the rest of your life, listen to her. I have kept her as my agent for the last 20 years. She helps manage my purchase which I kept as a rental property after moving out of state. She manages it like it is her own home, and I never have to worry about anything while living in Chicago with my family. I really appreciate her and would definitely recommend her service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.95M in Barron Park, Palo Alto, CA.
We are writing this letter to express our appreciations to Juliana Lee, who was the agent for our house purchase in Palo Alto, CA. Throughout the entire process, Juliana never pushed us to bid for a house that we could have any concern, and she never suggested us to bid with an overpricing offer. We learned a lot about the market, and also become good friends with Juliana. We were relocated from aboard to the U.S., and only have been staying here for less than a year. The fierce competition of the house market really frightened us as the first-time buyers. We were worried about if we could find our favorite house in a short period and if we were able to get a reasonable price to own the house. Fortunately we had lucks working with Juliana Lee on the house hunting and bidding. Her insights into the market in Palo Alto area helped us quite a lot. Based on our family size and finance situation, Juliana gave us recommendations on the houses on listing that matched our expectations. More importantly, she always gave us accurate suggestions when we made a buying offer, without ambiguity. Now we have received the keys of our new house. We are satisfied with the house location, condition and price. We would like to take the opportunity to thank you and we will recommend Juliana Lee to our friends.
