Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Watsonville, CA.
Judy was recommended to us by another real estate agent. We were immediately impressed by her enthusiasm and detailed knowledge of the market and so many local neighborhoods. Going out with her to look at houses was never drudgery, rather we always felt that these days spent with her were grand adventures for us, partly because she so obviously enjoyed looking at houses with us. Although she was such a pleasant and happy person to spend these hours with, it was clear to us that she works extremely hard to do her background research. We always felt that she valued our time as much as we did because she was so well prepared and efficient in mapping out an itinerary that introduced us to exactly the range of properties we were interested in. At the same time, she is never afraid to stretch her client's thinking by suggesting a different direction. And in fact, that was exactly how we finally found our house, which we absolutely love. It was because she understood us so well that she encouraged us to take a look at a property that we never thought would be for us. But to Judy's great credit, she was right, and we have always appreciated her for that!
What I appreciated about working with Judy is she LISTENED to what we were interested in and did not try and waste our time with showing properties which clearly would not have been of interest to us. Also when touring homes Judy never gave any opinions one way or the other. I never felt pressured. Judy was very easy to work with and the entire process of buying a home went smoothly and professionally.
