"Julie helped me purchase a condo in 2006.The condo was part of an apartment to condo conversion,and as a result the process was more complicated than the typical condo purchase. Nevertheless, Julie was extremely knowledgeable about the process. In addition, when the developer tried to engage in questionalble business practices, Julie challenged this behavior. She also negotiated in such a manner that I was able to purchase one of the most desireable units in the complex. I would recommend Julie without any hesitation."

"Julie is an unparalleled professional. She is thorough, courteous and extensively knowledgeable about homes in Washtenaw County. I would absolutely 100% work with her again. As a nervous hand-wringing first time buyer, Julie guided me through the process of buying my first home. In fact, I found my home due to her keen sense of what I liked and disliked in the (numerous) properties I had viewed. I know a s soon as I walked in that she'd found the perfect home for me. I can only thank her for her patience as we looked through homes that weren't quite right. Julie is fantastic!"

"Julie was such a delight to work with. She helped us purchase our first home and we have lived in it for 5 years. We were looking at houses in a lower price range and could not find one we liked. She watched us through the process and figured out what we liked and disliked, we had no idea since it was so new to us. Julie showed us a house in a slightly higher price range that was everything we were looking for and more. She helped us negotiate a deal that fit our budget. It wasn't about the sale it was about finding the right option for us. I will use Julie again when we sell and buy our next home."

"Julie is an honest and patient real estate agent. She gets to know her client needs and never gives up on helping them find their dream home. In our situation once we moved out of state and decided to move back she went and previewed properties for us to help limit the search and not miss anything before we returned. She will tell you if she thinks it is not a good fit and give up the sale rather than to have you make a mistake. Julie's patience is amazing and she answers calls even when you have spent hours searching with her and she never makes you feel bad with endless questions. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone that has real estate needs. After talking to many friends and hearing their experiences with agents I have an even better understanding of how lucky we were to have Julie as ours."

"Julie Gagne was recommended to us by a friend when, after a move, we were unable to find a rental. She helped us locate a wonderful condominium only a few miles from work after only one day. Later, when we decided to buy a home, Julie worked diligently and tirelessly to satisfy the diffcult demands of a couple, one a city mouse and one a country mouse, showing us several different areas even before we were committed to making a purchase. When we finally began the purchase of a short-sale we found her knowledge of the process to be invaluable and are happy that we did not attempt to manage it alone.
We found Julie to be extremely professional, straightforward and honest without the nonsense and bombast typical of realtors. Her advice was frank and candid and we would certainly work with her again in the future, and have recommended her to both friends (a college chum looking for an investment property) and relatives (my own mother)."

"Julie has acted as our buyer's agent for two houses in the past three years. Obviously, I think she's great, or I wouldn't have gone back! During both processes, Julie has been responsive, informative and patient. She is knowledgeable about the current local real estate market, and is willing and able to provide data (like comparative sales activity reports) when requested. In addition, she was a valuable resource to us during the offer process, giving us enough guidance that we felt informed and supported, but still giving us plenty of room to make independent decisions. Lastly, I have to say that, in my opinion, we were rather demanding clients. We wanted to see A LOT of houses (50+, each time), and to develop a good idea of what the market looked like for our price range and location. This took a lot of time, and Julie was always gracious about arranging showings and taking the time to tour them with us. I would have no hesitation in working with her again, and recommend her wholeheartedly."

"We have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Julie Gagne as our realtor. Julie is not just any real estate agent. She treats her clients the same way she would want to be treated. She is a very caring and committed individual, and has a high level of knowledge and experience with the housing market in the Ann Arbor area. Julie is the ideal choice when buying or selling in this community. We recommend her highly."

"From our first meeting with Julie my wife and I were impressed. We had actually just walked into the real estate office as we were new to Ann Arbor, we were looking to buy a house and knew nothing of the process. I was amazed by Julie's patience and rapport. She made us feel comfortable and was willing to show us houses from the very beginning to get a sense of what was on the market in our price range and what some of the different neighborhoods had to offer. She walked through the houses with us and made useful observations, showed us things to look out for and would let us know when a house that met our interests (both what we said and what she had observed us liking) and introduced us to our new home. We were so grateful for Julie's assistance along every step of the way and are glad to have had an amazing realtor and made a friend in the process!"

"We met Julie in 2005, when we decided to relocate to Washtenaw County. Julie worked with us to fine tune what we were really looking for in a new home. She asked us questions about our needs and wants that led us to some important factors we had not before considered--but that ultimately led us to choose the home we purchased in Dexter. Julie truly listens. She showed us only houses that met our criteria, was attentive, and at all times professional. Beyond that, she's intelligent, personable, and really knows her business. We've maintained contact with her, as she is not only an excellent real estate professional, but an all-around great person!"
- Charlotte and Dave O., Dexter MI
"Julie made everything seem so easy. She was so efficient, not wasting any time and very flexible and not ruffled by requests that Imade that seemed annoying to me-such as adding houses to see the same day at teh last minute. I was so tired! She was planning schedules and routes and teaching me about being a first time buyer, about home maintenance issues-all in a very direct and tireless way."
- Jessica B., Ann Arbor MI
"Julie was fantastic from day one. She managed to help two property virgins that were also non residents (and therefore needed a lot of help) to understand the housing options and to navigate the lending system! She listened carefully to our impressions of every place. and soon she knew exactly what to show us and how to help us compromise (the first home is never the dream one!), which is an excruciating task! We bought a condo unit and she was very knowledgeable about the history of the place and where it was going (she even went to the association meeting before we bought it!) We got the place we wanted, at the price we wanted, and we absolutely love it. We won't think twice when we list it for sale; she will be representing us. Julie is not only an excellent realtor, but also a good friend and community member. We are still in touch and it's been 3 years that we bought our place."
