It was a pleasure working with Julie. She was available and always on top of whatever or where ever we were in our process of buying investment property. We would not hesitate to use her again and we will definitely recommend her in to our friends and work associates.

Julie has been very helpful and patient over the past few years as I have tried to located a good investment for my retirement. When we found the right house, Julie was very helpful in organizing the purchase.

This is the fourth time Julie has helped us buy a house. That should be a clue to everyone what we think of her abilities. The first 3 houses were bought as investments but this one was for us. We trusted Julie to look for all the potential pitfalls we might find as owners in a rural area (we're urban dwellers). Her extensive experience in Sonoma County was especially useful.

Julie had her work cut out for her finding us a house. We wanted a specific area, a tight budget and a few rigid requirements. Julie's persistence in trying to find us the perfect home finally paid off. She is a intuitive and intelligent agent and she found the house of our dreams.

She did not participate in negotiations and did not offer any advice. We did not feel like she was striving to protect out interests. She did not follow up on the development of the deal. But she did show us the place and was very responsive in the search process.

Julie is highly professional and knowledgeable about her field as well as personable and amiable. She was always on top of each step of the purchasing process and often ahead, keeping me abreast of what was happening and what to expect. She obviously cares about her clients and does her best to meet their real estate needs. She was recommended to me by my daughter and son-in-law, and we all concur that she is a quality agent. We would surely work with her again were the need to arise.

Julie was great to work with. She understood what type of property I was looking for, was genuine, supportive and very responsive throughout the process. She was also punctual and available when she needed to be in spite of being a "new" mom. Julie also urged me to keep looking when times became a bit difficult, opened my eyes to some alternative neighborhoods. She also streamlined the buying process by connecting me with a good loan agent and some competent contractors. I am very happy to recommend Julie's services to any new or "veteran" home buyer and am thrilled to be in my new home overlooking the Bay! Dan Hirsch (Oakland Home Owner)

i really wish i was advised to get more inspections. (especailly mold!!!!) i was led to believe it was all ok, when in fact i should have had soo many more inspections. termite, etc i wish i wasnt asked to sign the last papers when the inspector was here. too crazy! the inspector i was advised to use, the guy from inspector pros was not cool. he did not complete the inspection.... he didnt go into my attic, which i asked him to do, and he claimed he didnt have access to my garage when all he had to was ask me for the key. AND... he made me feel very uncomfortable the way he looked at my chest the whole time he was talking to me. no kidding. and not funny.

In 1999 when we were buying our first house, a friend gave this ominous advise around the purchasing process "Beware. No one is on your side." And actually I agreed with her until we were ready to buy our second house and used Julie as our agent. Julie was *absolutely* on our side. Where we were willing to bid higher, Julie pushed back and was confident that we were okay staying where we were at. Thanks to Julie, we got the cutest house on the block at a killer price. She's in it for the long haul, has great ethics and is super low key. I really echo all that's been said about her in her other references; she's the kind of agent and person who needs their horn tooted as they're not about to do it themselves. And isn't that the best kind of person to work with? Thank you, Julie!

Things started off well while looking for a home. She took the time to meet us and show us homes on non-open house days and times. And she was very responsive and took her time explaining various situations and principles. But, as soon as we found a house we liked and the bidding process began, we felt that her main priority wasn't us anymore. She seemed more interested in making sure she closed the deal as soon as possible. Overall, we felt as though there was a noticeable drop off in terms of representing what was best for us once we showed interest in a home.

1. Julie told us there were 2 offers already submitted on the property. This put us in a panic mode to submit within 1 day, we were going to wait 1 week. We have now found out there were NO other offers on the property. 2. We looked to Julie for advice on pricing. The house was listed at $839,000. She indicated that as there were other offers already on the house our offer would have to be exceptional. This resulted in us submitting an offer of $902,000. We would likely only have submitted an offer for maximum $850,000 had we not been told other offers had been submitted. 3. Once the offer had been submitted it was impossible to reach Julie. We tried cell phone and office numbers and she did not answer. We ended up having to negotiate DIRECTLY with the seller, as Julie was not available to us and the contingency period HAD ALREADY EXPIRED. 4. We confronted Julie regarding the lack of availability and unresponsiveness returning phone calls, and then she started crying. We are still quite puzzled as to why this happened as we are very calm, non-offensive people, and approached her in a very reasonable manner, with a calm tone. The crying incident happened on 2 occassions. Julie indicated the phone call was not going very well, and that was basically the end of the conversation. 5. We are now extremely upset with the service we received from ZipRealty and are considering legal action. Due to the poor service, bad advice, and what we believe to be lies, we believe this house cost us $50,000 more than it should have.

I want to thank Julie Souza for all the work she did for us in consummating the deal at 30 Emery Bay. I always have felt the Realty profession is difficult since there are so many loose ends to bring together and everyone has so many different needs. She made it look easy for us in our purchase. I have to admit I was a little skeptical when we first met Julie Souza. My first impression of her was someone lacking in experience based on her youthful appearance. I was pleasantly surprised with her thoroughness and always keeping our best interest in mind at all times. I hope she never looses her enthusiasm and passion towards her work because it definitely shows and, in our case, made us very happy. Ron and Vicki Tom

Julie was a great agent and advocate for getting me into my house as soon as possible. She worked within tight deadlines that were made even tighter because of the Holiday season. She was also a pleasure to work with. She was organized, available at all times of the day, and an overall pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend using Julie to anyone who was looking for an agent in the East Bay.
