Customer Testimonials

With The Brooklyn Broker, service comes first, last and always. If our customers are happy, we’re happy.

Here’s what some of our clients are saying about us:

After several frustrating and unsuccesful months looking for a co-op I began working with Julie. She had a good sense of what I was looking for and began showing me places she knew I would like – Julie did not waste my time by showing me every listing available. When I found an apartment in my price range that I really liked Julie helped me put together my offer and made sure that it was immediately transmitted to the sellers. After the contract was signed Julie assisted in making sure the entire process (co-op application & board interview, mortgage commitment and closing) went as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend working with her.

Julie was wonderful in helping me find my first home. She took the time to listen to what was important to me and showed me a number of properties that fit my criteria. She guided me through the entire process from contract to the closing and made my first home buying experience a great one! I will use her again when I’m looking to make my next move and would recommend Julie to anyone who is looking to buy real estate in Brooklyn!

-Liz Francis

There’s a buyer for every house, and Julie has managed to find mine -not once or twice, but three times! Selling a house is not easy, but Julie made it a lot less painful than it could have otherwise been. The people she brought in were not only qualified, they were people she thought would love the house. If you are thinking about putting your home on the market, call Julie. Julie sells houses!

-Ginger Caramico

It is my pleasure to recommend Julie Thum. I met Julie in 2005 and was impressed right away. She called me the day I emailed her from her web site, spent time asking questions and really listening. My husband and I are looking for something really specific, and Julie has never given up searching. She stays in touch regularly and makes us feel that we valued as potential buyers. I know that when we finally find the right home, Julie will most likely be the person who shows it to us.

Sincerely,

-Cindy G.

When I think of what I want in a realtor, I think of honesty, drive, knowledge and communication. I have been fortunate enough to find all these qualities in one person–Julie Thum. Her integrity and drive are unrivaled. Her vast knowledge and education in real estate is incomparable and ongoing. She is in constant communication on every aspect of a deal. I have chosen Julie over and over and over again. She has set a standard I have yet to see met in the world of real estate brokers.

A very faithful client,

-Lisa L. Dimino

I found Julie to be enthusiastic, professional and tenacious in
finding me something great that I could still afford. As a first-time buyer, I felt secure working with her because she kept me informed during every step of the process. She referred me to a couple of her colleagues and they were honest and experienced. I would refer her to anyone looking for a place in Brooklyn!

-Eileen Clancy

Julie is a true professional who provides outstanding customer service. Her tireless efforts, vast knowledge of the industry and players are ideal for anyone buying or selling a home. She is a straight-shooter and tells you like it is — which is something I very much appreciate — especially in an industry where I am not as familiar. Julie is dependable and will always keep you updated on the status of your transaction. You’ll never feel out of the loop in any situation.

My first transaction with Julie was the purchase of a Co-op. She proved herself three times over — so of course I hired her when I sold that apartment (to move in with my Fiance). I still miss that apartment, Brooklyn, and Julie! Seriously, hire her!

-Rose Bleszcz

Julie was wonderful in helping us find and purchase our first home. Throughout the difficult co-op purchase process, she guided us through each step along the way to closing. Her advice and encouragement took away a great deal of the stress of being a first time buyer. Julie consistently went above and beyond to ensure that everything went smoothly. She is extremely professional and hardworking. Julie and the other vendors she recommended all worked hard to make sure our needs were met and were always there to answer all of our questions.
