“I welcome the opportunity to work with you!”
My husband and I were referred to Julie by her colleague and we thank our lucky stars that we were! Julie was the perfect real estate agent in every way. We very much appreciated her encouraging & positive attitude - she helped assure us that we would get a wonderful house (even in this crazy competitive market)! In addition, she was extremely thorough with all the endless details of buying real estate, always prompt with her follow up, and very knowledgeable of the areas/neighborhoods that we were interested in buying in. We wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to jump into the Peninsula housing market!
--Jessica & Jared
I am absolutely delighted to have Julie as my realtor. She understands the market, she knows the neighborhoods, she knows the other agents, and she goes the extra mile to make sure everything is right and that you're fully informed.
Having worked with other realtors in the past, and having compared notes with friends who have also recently purchased a home -- I can tell you that Julie was exceptional. Where other realtors might disappear after an offer is made and accepted, Julie's sense of professional responsibility goes above and beyond.
Julie is responsive to your questions, she is organized and detail oriented, and she is devoted to her profession and your experience. I could not recommend anyone more highly or more unreservedly. Wilson (Buyer)
Julie you’ve absolutely blown us away with your perseverance, optimism / "seller-encouragement”, and savviness to orchestrate a deal at a price above our initial expectations. Thank You. –Eric (Seller)
“Julie Ray of Coldwell Banker in Menlo Park, was outstanding and easily the best Realtor I've ever worked with. Julie was extremely responsive and strategic, the time zone difference did not throw her off at all (we had a few pre-negotiation calls with her at midnight her time), and she knows the Peninsula market very well.” --Eric (Buyer)
Julie was wonderful to work with during my relocation. She spent time to get to know me, my lifestyle, and what I was looking for in a home. When I finally found the perfect place, she skillfully maneuvered me through a very competitive bidding process. She was very knowledgeable and always on top of things. She was truly a trusted partner and gave me a great sense of confidence every step of the way. I will recommend her to everyone. --Marjorie Hook
Julie Ray from the start has been a real estate agent that truly cares about her clients. She listens to her clients. Selling a house can be an emotional and stressful time. Julie relates to these needs and pushes forward so that her clients trust her. She listed my house, I received multiple offers and it went for over the asking price. What could be better than that. This was my first house that I sold and I would do it again with Julie's expertise.

"So far as I'm concerned, Julie Ray could be running Microsoft. She's just that personable, knowledgeable, organized and engaged. A 'perfect 10' of a real estate agent. I would absolutely hire her again." --Mary Ashley
My wife and I sold a rental property through Julie Ray in late 2014. Due to a family situation the property, a small house in San Jose, had to be sold fairly quickly. Happily, Julie quickly figured out the best way to approach the sale and was able to find a cash buyer for the price we wanted in a matter of days. Because of the rushed nature of the sale, the transaction had lots of moving parts but she was able to keep everything on track with admirable efficiency.
My wife has a crazy work schedule and Julie was very flexible and was able to accommodate her for all of the various document signings, which made things very easy. Julie was very responsive to texts, email and phone calls, which helped move things along nicely. Julie’s blend of integrity, tenacity and, most importantly, good humor turned a potentially difficult situation into a smooth, almost painless transaction. My wife and I would absolutely work with Julie again and we can whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling property. --Michael and Leanne Simmons
We put Julie to the daunting task of finding a live work space for us at a low price point for the Peninsula. She stayed positive throughout our entire search and paid close attention to our needs. When we found our home we had a six week old baby and she made everything as simple as possible. She communicated well throughout our negotiations and escrow. She also helped us research to ensure that our new home was a good investment. She really knew her stuff which eased my anxiety as a first time home buyer. --Marje & Michi Matsuda
“We were very happy with our experience with Julie Ray in the pre-sale preparation, listing and sale of our house in Menlo Park. Julie was very attentive to our needs and showed a very high level of professionalism in all aspects of our transaction. We were especially impressed with her attention to detail, which in our view is important in any successful real estate transaction. We would highly recommend Julie for any real estate transaction in the mid-Peninsula area.” --Kathy & Larry Kahn
“Julie provided us excellent service throughout the buying and selling process of our Menlo Park homes. Julie’s level of professionalism, open and honest communication coupled with her sense of humor made it really fun to work with her.” --Stacy Goldman
