Julie is very capable and worth a five star rating. Her attention to detail and her quick response to my questions were very appreciated. If I was going to buy or sell a home in Concord or surrounding area I would call Julie.
Peter S, Concord (seller) May 2017
I have a very low stress threshold, and I needed to sell my house. I struggled to get all my stuff moved out, but I knew Julie was taking care of all the other work that needed to be done.
Julie is an awesome realtor. From beginning to post-sale, she was easy to work with, knowledgeable, patient, and well balanced. In the midst of difficult decisions, financing issues, and emotional upheaval, Julie was the clear, calm, rational and intelligent voice that carried us forward into our new, beautiful home. We couldn't be happier.
Jill S, Martinez (buyer) November 2016
I wrote a review of Julie McCoy five and a half years ago. At that time, I expressed my appreciation for the knowledge, patience, and honesty Julie demonstrated throughout the home buying process.
She helped me find a house I have enjoyed for more than five years. During that time, my needs have changed. When I decided to sell my house, I contacted Julie.
Reconnecting with Julie has been a delight. She is positive, energetic, personable, and above all else, very knowledgable. She offered several suggestions to make the house more appealing to potential buyers. Her advice was followed and the house was listed at a reasonable price.
Thanks to Julie's advice and energy, the house sold in six days! The sale price was very close to the listing price.
I have watched other houses in our neighborhood be on the market for months before selling. I was concerned I would experience a drawn out process. Julie guided me through a quick, efficient, very productive sale.
I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Julie on two separate occasions. She is knowledgeable, patient, energetic, personable, and effective. It is a pleasure working with her. She has my respect and my highest recommendation.
Bob Z, Brentwood (seller/buyer) November 2016
I can't say enough great things about Julie. She sold our home in 6 days! She always had great tips and advice for getting our home ready to sell. Julie also helped us find the perfect home to buy. She knew the area well and the type of home we were looking for. The whole process of selling our home and buying a home was done with ease and confidence because of her expertise. Thank you Julie for being such a skilled, knowledgeable and caring realtor. You truly are the BEST realtor around.
Brentwood (seller/buyer) November 2016
If I ever need to buy or sell in Contra Costa County, I'll be contacting Julie. She was a tremendous resource for my relocation from Sacramento. Her knowledge of the area and ability to learn my preferences made her an exceptional agent for me. She demonstrated experienced professionalism in our interactions, and focused on helping me find a house to my liking, as opposed to just making the sale. She was my most valuable asset in relocating
Kevin B, Concord (buyer) October 2016
I met Julie at an open house I attended. I immediately felt as if she was experienced and knowledgeable. After our initial conversation I decided to jump in and start my own search.
Julie was the most amazing agent I have ever used, I don't think I can use enough adjectives to describe her. She was thorough, focused on me as her client, personable, flexible, diligent and extremely hard working! She walked me through the entire process and even after closing has continued to stay in touch answering questions and providing ongoing support. I have purchased a number of homes, and used several Bay Area agents but going forward JULIE MCCOY will be only my choice from here on!
Sharon H, Concord (buyer) September 2016
Julie was a very helpful, knowledgable, friendly person to work with. She made the selling process so easy. She took care of all the details and explained everything to me along the way. I would recommend Julie 100% to buy or sell a home.
Nancy R, Martinez (seller) September 2016
Julie is an extremely knowledgeable realtor. She helped us prep our 2 properties which went on the market and were sold within one week. I highly recommend her!
Cynthia L, Martinez (seller) July 2016
Julie is the best, most professional realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She told me how to get my home ready to sell, and, by following her advice, my home sold in two days for above listing price. She communicates with you appropriately and you never have to question the status of the transaction.Julie is a realtor you can count on!
M. Warwick, Walnut Creek (seller) July 2016
I honestly can't say enough good things about Julie. From the moment we met her, I could tell she was going to be great and she did not disappoint. She is personable, caring, professional, very responsive and an amazing negotiator. Our buyer was playing hardball and Julie was strong, tough negotiator and she did everything with in her power to help us have a smooth transaction. I was stressed at times and she always answered my panic emails even when it was super late at night. Once our sale went through and move day appreciated, she even offered to help watch our kids. Wow, talk about going above and beyond. I would highly recommend and use her again.
Jena M, Concord (seller) July 2016
Julie helped my wife and I sell our home during a tough time. We had recently purchased another home with a contingency that we sell our current home. The process of selling our house was very fast and we would've been lost without Julie. She was quickly able to help us stage our home, show it through an open house and negotiate seamlessly with the buyer.
Needless to say it was a very stressful time for our family and we turned to Julie a lot for guidance and support. She was able to calm our nerves throughout the process and speak with experience and confidence. I know that without Julie by our side we most likely would not have been able to sell our home in such a short time frame. She saved us. Julie was masterful in her ability adapt to the changing situations. She is naturally kind and generous...but when the time called for it, she was able to stand strong and negotiate tactfully and aggressively for us. I will recommend Julie to anyone I know that will be trying to buy or sell a home. She is great!!!
Tim M, Concord (seller) July 2016
I found Julie through the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce. When my husband and I interviewed her my impression was that she was sharp and knowledgeable about the local market, but most importantly for me I felt like I could openly communicate to her without pressure. Julie was patient with us in searching for a home for almost a year. She responded quickly to our questions, had a flexible schedule to show us homes and provided us honest advice backed by her market analyses. Julie's expertise, professionalism and negotiating skills were especially demonstrated on the home that we bought. I am so happy that we worked with Julie and I would highly recommend her to help you find your home!
Susan P, Martinez (buyer) July 2016
Julie was absolutely amazing! She is very knowledgeable, honest, and prompt with communication. Recommended by a family member and I would recommended her to friends AND family. I definitely see myself working with Julie in the near future again.
Dina R, Martinez (buyer) May 2016
Julie is a pleasure to work with and enjoyable to be around. She is timely, knowledgeable, and masterfully persistent. She led us through buying our home in a way that made me stand in awe of her. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying, selling, or looking into the real estate market.
Wendy P, Martinez (buyer) May 2016
I worked with Julie 14 years ago when she helped me buy my first home. I had the pleasure of working with her again recently on another home purchase. Just like the first time Julie made the experience not so scary. With her easy to work with manner and expert negotiation skills, I felt she was really working for me and had my best interest in mind. If you want an agent who is professional, knowledgeable, personable and above all RESPONSIVE and TRUSTWORTHY, I highly recommend you reach out to Julie because she is all that! I will definitely use Julie again for any future real estate needs and would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
A. Luna, Concord (buyer) March 2016
Julie was amazing! Always pleasantly responsive to our questions and concerns; She never made me feel like I was bothering her. She great about offering possible outcomes to the various scenarios one encounters when both buying and selling a home. I felt well informed and never felt pressured. I highly recommend working with Julie.
Dawn K, Martinez (seller & buyer) January 2016
Julie is very knowledgable and takes care of her business in a prompt fashion. She never tried to sell me on anything but instead gave me facts about what I needed to know. I enjoyed working with her and plan on using her again.
Zach G, Martinez (buyer) October 2015
"Julie was great and very patient. She showed us quite a few homes before we found the perfect home for us. Julie also helped refer us to a contractor and a cleaning lady after we moved in."
Jeff C, Pleasant Hill (buyer) July 2015
Pleasure to work with Julie, she is a true professional.
M. Mills, Concord (buyer) June 2015
Julie is phenomenal! She has your best interest at heart and is so dedicated to every client.
F. Ziadeh, Concord (buyer) March 2015
Julie was not only easy to work with but very personable. She gave honest feedback and great advice. Our house had an offer within the first three days!!! Our home selling experience was so easy thanks to Julie. I will recommend her to all my friends and family.
Patricia F, Oakley (seller) March 2015
Julie, was excellent to work with and we would ask for her expertise when the time comes to purchase another home. The house we purchase was a tough buy due to our loan approval process. Julie was always present and resourceful. When our first loan didn't go through she was able to find another broker within a day that was able to get us cleared to close within 15 days. It was exceptional! Thank you Julie!
L. Leal, Martinez (buyer) February 2015
Julie is exceptional. I had planned to interview two other highly regarded real estate agents. Julie was the first interview. It was obvious that she was the person for this job. I didn’t even interview the others. Julie is a true professional. Very motivated and energetic. She also has a good eye for staging a home. She suggested improvements which made a major difference in selling my home.
J. Mueller, Brentwood (seller) October 2014
We have used Julie to sell two homes and buy another one. She is knowledgeable, professional, and trustworthy. She constantly went above and beyond what other realtors provided. Her expertise helped us through some tough negotiations!
Melissa K, San Ramon (seller) October 2014
Julie was so easy to work with! I’ve never sold a home before. She was very professional and a good communicator! I had great confidence in her abilities to sell my home. She did a thorough and fast job! I would definitely use her again!!! Thank you Julie!
D. Marabuto, Concord (seller) September 2014
Very informative. Had great discussions regarding the current and new neighborhood.
T. Ferland, Brentwood (seller) August 2014
Julie did a great job. She told us what to do to get the home ready to sell, gave us names of people to work with, and then sold it quickly. We were very happy.
K. Petty, Orinda (seller) August 2014
Julie was great to work with. She was knowledgeable about our neighborhood and all the real estate nuances that are involved with a successful sale. Julie was great at responding quickly to text, phone calls and emails. Was always available when needed, and communicated all parts of the sale process as it proceeded.
M. Michael, Concord (seller) June 2014
She actually managed to sell our house in zero days! She found a buyer in pre-sales... The transaction was short and painless and we were very happy with the proceeds. She coordinated everything– the repairs, photos, title, sale. Works very hard for the money. Definitely recommend.
K. Raman, Walnut Creek (seller) June 2014
Julie was fantastic! I really wanted an aggressive, no-nonsense Realtor to complete this transaction. I was upfront about my expectations and Julie delivered a sale at full list price. I was and am delighted!
A. Kennon, Brentwood (seller) June 2014
Professional, realistic, does not over promise, ethical, looks out for the clients best interest.
M. Parrish, Oakley (seller) June 2014
We absolutely loved working with Julie McCoy! She was always very responsive in our home buying experience. She went above and beyond every step of the way. I'd love to work with Julie again in the future!
Kristin B, Clayton (buyer) May 2014
Julie is great! She was extremely helpful and provided us with some good tips to help sell our property. I was impressed by how quickly she responded to questions we had and by her proactive involvement in providing us with updates on potential buyers. I will recommend Julie to any friend looking to sell their home.
Brandon F, Walnut Creek (seller) May 2014
Julie was professional, attentive and very sharp. She was able to anticipate problems and provide possible solutions to us after listening to what we thought on the subject.
K. Campbell, Concord (seller) May 2014
Julie is an absolute treasure! When we moved to California, she found our first house in Walnut Creek close to the bart. After 2 years, we outgrew the property, so she helped us find the right property for us after looking at several houses in the Concord-Clayton area over 3 months. She helped us file a really competitive bid based on comparables, and the closing was smooth and hassle free. She is now helping us upgrade the previous property before we put it on market. She found incredibly good contractors for repairs, paint & upgrades. Picks up the ball on really short notice. Knows the community really well. Will strongly recommend working with her.
K. Raman, Concord (buyer) April 2014
Julie was terrific! She makes sure your best interests are her top priority. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.
Jack S, Walnut Creek, (seller) April 2014
Julie was amazing to work with! Very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable. My wife and I would highly recommend her.
M. Leal, Pleasant Hill (seller) March 2014
Julie was great helping us sell our condo. This was the first time we sold a home and it was truly a great experience. Julie is highly recommended.
S. Block, Moraga (seller) March 2014
We sold our home in the Bay Area while living in Southern California. Julie made the process very smooth. Her clear communication made it seem as though we were right there the whole time. Her professionalism and attention to detail was evident from the first discussions we had about the potential sale.
M. Frazee, Martinez (seller) December 2013
Julie is great; she provided us with honest feedback and advice and worked very hard for us--ulitmately getting us the best price for our home. We highly recommend her!
Jim G, Pleasant Hill (buyer) December 2013
Julie is both personable and very professional. Her communications skills and diligent follow up efforts and her understanding of the local market area certainly helped us capture optimum value in our home's final selling price in a market where other sellers/agents began taking unnecessary price reductions (e.g. including local homes for sale that are still on the market today in light of significant price reductions). We strongly recommend Julie to anyone looking to sell there home and we hope to be reunited with Julie and her services to purchase/sell future properties.
Gary W, Brentwood (seller) November 2013
We began to work with Julie through a glowing recommendation from a friend who bought a house with Julie. As first time home buyers we were extremely nervous but welcomed the recommendation because we had worked with several agents before Julie but never felt like our best interests were coming first.
When working with Julie, we immediately felt at ease. She was knowledgeable, informative and really knew how to work with each of us. She made sure that we were comfortable throughout the entire process and always made sure that we were aware of the pro's and con's of each house. We never felt pressured to buying and she never tried to sway us one way or another. Julie always made sure that she gave us the tools that we needed, provided guidance and allowed us to make each decision.
Even once we closed, she has been in communication with us and help us for one-off requests when needed. We feel completely comfortable with Julie and would not only highly suggest her to anyone, we will absolutely work with Julie in the future.
Hedieh G, Pleasant Hill (buyer) November 2013
Julie is awesome!!! Definitely a go-getter agent! Addressed all my concerns and walked me through every single step of buying my first home. Full of knowledge and reassurance, which helped me tremendously as a first-time home buyer. I couldn't ask for a better agent! I would definitely recommend her to any one of my friends and family members looking to buy a home.
Amechi O, Bay Point (buyer) September 2013
It has been an outstanding experience to work with Julie. Julie brought professional experience, a clear mind, and, perhaps most importantly, sensitivity and understanding to helping me my reach my objectives. Consequently I was able to trust and turn over to Julie care of matters that could have otherwise caused me much personal distress and distraction from my goal. Thank you, Julie. I'd work with you anytime.
Kent S, Pleasant Hill (seller) August 2013
Julie was attentive and always communicated with us at anytime of the day. She helped us tremendously. Would recommend her!
C. Austen, Pleasant Hill (seller) August 2013
Julie was amazing to work with. She helped to answer a number of questions and was a Rock for us during a difficult time. I highly recommend working with Julie.
Tina F, Brentwood (seller) September 2012
Very thorough and professional. She walked us through all the pitfalls and closed a stellar transaction.
W. Massey, Walnut Creek, (seller) June 2012
Julie is very professional and ushered us through the sales process in a timely and efficient manner. She knew what to do and helped us immensely. I highly recommend her.
S. Becker , Concord (seller) June 2012
Through the years that we have been associated with her, Julie has always provided an extremely professional buying experience for us, including the purchase of 3 houses and the viewing of many more. Julie is clearly dedicated to her clients and has represented our needs with only the highest degree of integrity…
Philip D, Oakley (buyer) April 2012
Julie got me into my first house with everything on my wishlist, and it ended up being quite below my dollar limit. I would continue to use Julie McCoy for buying and selling property.
David N, Concord (buyer) March 2012
Julie was instrumental in helping us purchase our latest home. It was not our intention to purchase a short-sale home but we fell in love with what turned out to be just that.
Julie was careful, knowledgeable and always looking out for our best interests.
I honestly believe we would not have had our offer accepted and eventually closed our deal if Julie was not our agent.
Tracy T, Martinez (buyer) June 2010
Exceptional!! Julie McCoy was a lifesaver. We were in the process of having a difficult and very stressful experience trying to sell our home when the market started to significantly slow down. The realtor we had first chosen didn’t believe in doing aggressive marketing. All the agent wanted to do was keep lowering the price of our home. Then we met Julie. We were extremely impressed by the professional presentation she gave to introduce herself and what we thought she could provide to us as an agent. She knew exactly how to market our house in the changing market. One month after we hired her we accepted an offer. I don’t think you could find a better and more dedicated realtor than Julie McCoy.
Ann M, Concord (seller), January 2007
Dear Julie, Many Many thanks for all your help. Your knowledge of Real Estate, your professional advice & especially your enthusiasm made selling our home remarkably easy! With all our best wishes,
Bob and Gail B, Brentwood (seller), June 2005
Hi Julie, …I just feel that we have gone thru a lot in the past few months together, and I know that you did things for us that were “above and beyond” what you really needed to do. I know that I could not have made all of the many decisions so “painlessly” without your expert guidance – you made this whole process go very smoothly for us, and I can’t even tell you how very much I appreciate all of your help with walking me thru everything (especially with signing the papers today) - it was great knowing that you were there!!!! You are very good with communicating what is going on and why.
I have been thinking about you a lot lately, and how much work you went through for my sisters and myself with selling mom’s condo, and I don’t think that we ever really thanked you properly for all that you did – all of the extra care that you took. You are just an extremely sweet person, and I want you to know that we sure do appreciate everything that you did for us! It is really hard to find such dedicated and down-to-earth people like you who really care! You are such a sweetheart, and I just wanted to thank you again personally! Keep up the great work! Sincerely,
Debbie V, Oakley (seller) May 2005
To anyone selling a home in Contra Costa:
I just wanted to express my delight with the level of service that Julie McCoy provided for my wife & me. Let me relate our experience.
I found Julie’s contact info on Realtor.com & read a bit about her... I entered my contact info in the form, & literally within an hour & a half, Julie called me. I was quite surprised, but came to realize that this is just how Julie is – Super responsive!
Well, we met that same day, & it was obvious that Julie had already done her homework. She had a great grasp on home values in my neighborhood, & I decided to have her meet with my wife as well. When she came two days later... she had done the rest of her homework, & we sat down & listened as she explained exactly what we could get for our house and why. We had a number of concerns around minor fixes & where we should focus our repair budget. She was amazing in her knowledge & helpfulness.
Well, we were so impressed, we decided to go with her, & it was the best decision we could have made. She hired (out of her own commission) somebody to come in & walk us through paint color schemes & then actually stage the house once we had moved everything out. Within a week of going on the market, I was flooded with interest & had already accepted an offer.
Once the house went on the market, I no longer even lived in the state! Julie took care of everything – even coordinating with my neighbors to make sure my lawn was watered & mowed! I was able to relax & not worry about a thing.
Well, it turns out that the initial buyers got cold feet and backed out. But Julie never missed a beat. She got the house right back on the market, got the word back out & within another week I was deciding between three more offers. This time the sale went through & again – Julie took care of everything. I never worried for a minute. Throughout the entire process, Julie called me virtually every day to keep me up-to-date on everything that was happening. It was an incredible experience. In total, with her expertise in pricing a home, where to focus a repair budget, & negotiating with buyers, Julie got us close to $80,000 more than we would have gotten otherwise. It was definitely worth the commission we paid her. Please, if you are thinking of hiring an agent to sell your home, call Julie McCoy. If you want to get it straight from the horse’s mouth, you can even call me. My name is Ben and I will be happy to give you all the reasons you should choose Julie McCoy.
B. Geslison, Pleasant Hill (seller) January 2005
Julie, thank you so much for making the sale of our house so pleasant. Your professionalism and enthusiasm come through in everything you do.
H. Abul-Hawa, Brentwood (seller) June 2004
Julie was able to get us top dollar when we sold, and helped us negotiate a great deal with our current home. She has a team that kept us in the loop every step of the way. It was a great experience. I highly recommend Julie whether you are buying or selling.
Mark L, Antioch (seller) Concord (buyer) September 2003
Dear Julie, Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job of selling our Concord home. You helped calm our fears, and the end result, (a brand new home in Brentwood), was worth the transition. Thanks to you we were able to get a great interest rate and meet new people. You are more than ‘just an agent,’ you are a great person. You made it a point to make us feel welcome in this new town. We’d recommend you to anyone. Scott and Christina A, Concord (seller/buyer), Brentwood (buyer), January 2003+
Julie McCoy found a property for my family that exceeded my expectations. Julie was very proactive during the process & is an excellent communicator. She negotiated well, navigated easily through the technical aspects, & kept me informed at each stage of our progress. In addition her knowledge of the schools, preschools, neighborhoods, sales histories, area resources, & commutes was the critical information that I needed as a newcomer in the area to find the right home. Julie has continued to be an excellent resource. I could not recommend her more highly. B. Weil, Martinez (buyer) January 2002
I want to share with you a treasure I discovered during the sale of my home: Her name is Julie McCoy. One reason I'd so dreaded selling my home & finding another was the fact that I'd have to find a Realtor with whom I could enjoy working. I lucked out. The sale of my home was fraught with complications & frustrations but Julie passed the test with every problem; she maintained her cool & represented me, her client, with skill & grace. Julie McCoy is ever professional, knowledgeable, available, tactful, & so easy to do business with. If you or someone you know are thinking of relocating, please interview Julie. I had interviews with three agents lined up, happened to interview her first, & cancelled the other two. She was just that good. You will not be disappointed. A. Delucchi, Walnut Creek (seller) and Concord (buyer) November 2000
Julie, I want to thank you for being the greatest Realtor anyone could ask for. Thank you for helping me to find the perfect home. K. St. Claire, Concord (buyer) February 2000
