Sold a Cooperative home in 2014 in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY.
Julie was such a pleasure to work with. She helped us quickly find a strong buyer for our co-op and her expertise, guidance, and accessibility made us feel like we had found a true partner. Her experience and respect among her peers quickly showed as she had extensive knowledge on our board and had worked with the attorneys, bank officers, and management company in the past; helping to move things forward smoothly. Julie, thank you for everything including your support and humor through it all!

Response from Julie Thum on 01/05/2015
Thank you so much Maria for your review. I truly appreciate it!
Julie was absolutely wonderful to work with. She always looked out for me and my best interest, and I always felt that she was steering me in the right direction. Julie was always searching/sending me information on potential apartments based on my wish list. If there were apartments that I wanted to see or apartments that Julie thought I might be interested in, she made sure that that I got an appointment to see them. I always received a response from her quickly whenever I had to contact her, whether it was through phone, text, or e-mail. Ultimately, Julie helped me find an apartment that was best suited for me, which happened to be in the building that I wanted and was in my price range – I couldn’t have asked for anything better, and I am truly happy with my outcome from working with her. Something that is also important to note is that I NEVER once felt like Julie was pushing me into something I didn't want; she TRULY cared about putting me in a place that was perfect for me. So, if you are looking for a realtor that is very knowledgeable, easy to work with, and who can make the tedious process of buying a home as painless as possible, definitely go with Julie Thum. I would definitely recommend her to any of my friends or family members without any reservations. :)

It was wonderful working with Julie Thum who helped me sell a co-op as part of an estate. She was very knowledgeable and quickly responded to any questions and comments. The place sold quickly and I couldn't have been happier.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.
Julie is a seasoned expert in her field. She has helped me both as a buyer in 2010 and a seller in 2014 for my co-op in Bay Ridge. On both sides of the transaction, she is a plethora of information every step of the way. She is accessible, knowledgeable, and more than willing to help you in any regard. She knows how to price a property to sell, as my apartment received multiple offers within 48 hours of listing, which resulted in us accepting an offer WELL over asking. Julie is a beautiful person inside and out, I would recommend her to anyone! If you are looking to make your buying or selling experience as seamless as possible, you cannot pick a better agent than Julie. On both sides, it is an overwhelming process. Julie provides unending support through it all. Thank you for everything, Julie!!!!!

My fiancé and I recently purchased a coop in Bay Ridge where Julie was the seller’s agent. Regardless of whether we were her clients or not she guided us through entire the process, from offer acceptance to recommending attorneys, then reviewing our application and giving us advise on passing the board interview. She is very responsive, reliable and on top of her stuff going above and beyond whats expected from any agent. We highly recommend Julie for your next purchase or sale and we will certainly look to her in the future. Thanks Julie for all your help and we can't wait for you to see it after the renovation!
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY.
We bought a place through Julie in Bay Ridge.
We had been looking for quite a while and she was recommended by a friend. Julie is very knowledgeable of the market and the neighborhood.
The 1st time we spoke with her, there was not too much on the market that caught our eye. We had dealings with many other agents before dealing with Julie, but we had a great conversation over the phone, and we knew right away that she was a very honest and trustworthy agent. A few months later, she had just posted a listing that seemed like the right place (and we were ready to give up on buying!). She made herself available to show it to us (twice!) right away.
The process can be long but Julie helped us through, made things happen. She was very patient with us too; since we were first time buyers, we may have been clueless at times! But her expertise, her enthusiasm made this process go smoothly.
We really appreciated her being honest, reliable, flexible, professional, on top of things, as well as genuine and caring!
If we would ever go through the process of buying and selling again, we definitely would use her to represent us.

She is local and knows the area very well...when buying, the last thing u would want, is to find a great apt in a subpar building...Julie will make sure u know exactly what your investing in.
