    • Julia listed and sold my home

        I am so grateful that Julia is my realtor. Julia is a true professional. She guided me through the selling process and it really was painless! I've known Julia for a long time and I know that she is the best. I trusted her judgments and suggestions and I am so glad I did! The service providers that she suggested were experts as well and always on time. I still cannot believe how smoothly Julia and Amy made everything. No doubt, I would have Julia guide me through the process again.

      • Julia listed, but didn't sell, my home

          BY FAR, the two most professional, efficient, financially beneficial and enjoyable real estate transactions I have ever experienced came through working with Julia Murtagh. Her patience and diligence found our family the dream home that was beyond our hopes. Her prudence and shrewd negotiations made it affordable. Her market knowledge, marketing footprint and expansive network sold our home at our asking price with offer in hand in 6 days in a "soft" market. Avoiding the cliché bombs that are often used in describing real estate professionals, it is most simply said that if you value your money, your time, a low level of stress and a desired outcome, you need to get the Power of the Purple in your life. Work with Julia Murtagh for all your real estate needs!

        • Julia listed and sold my home

            I can’t say enough about Julia Murtagh. She was clearly our advocate from beginning to end always making us feel like her top priority. She was super responsive through text, awesome at follow up, anticipated issues that came up and addressed them all proactively. Julia was knowledgeable about the market, a strong negotiator, great communicator, patient, and always available. We just listened to her suggestions, followed her advice and expertise and it all worked out perfectly. We couldn’t believe how seamless she made this process and will be forever grateful for her services.

          • Julia helped me buy a home

              When we were looking for a home, Julia was very knowledgeable of our target areas. Julia was also very quick to answer any questions we had during the buying process. We highly recommend her services.

            • Julia helped me buy a home

                She went above and beyond. I had a hard limit to how much I could spend, and she never even suggested that I exceed it. She found me a home that couldn’t have been more perfect for me. Literally (and I mean literally) I was all signed and closed five weeks from when I started looking. Now, even she agreed that was really fast, so please don’t expect miracles, but I think my experiences shows just how much she wants to get you into a good home. She knows the area and knows the business, and I could not have put myself in better hands.

              • Julia listed and sold my home

                  My husband and I had an excellent overall experience working with Julia in both selling our long time family home and purchasing our new dream property. She was responsive to our needs and requests, worked for us with integrity and honesty, while always maintaining her friendly character and professionalism.

                • Julia helped me buy a home

                    Julia was a delight to work with. She worked with us over a 6 month period, sending us relevant properties and helping vet them for a potential fit. She clearly has a ton of experience, as she was intimately familiar with every facet of the process of buying a house. Her knowledge of the area we bought, Pleasanton, is extensive.

                  • Julia listed and sold my home

                      Julia is extremely responsive and professional. Knows the market and worked hard to get our house sold. Custom signs inside the house calling out specific features was a nice touch. Service providers and stagers were first rate. We would highly recommend her.

                    • Julia helped me buy a home

                        We had been renting in Pleasanton for more than a year when we decided to buy a home and commit to staying longer term in the area. Having lived here for some time, it had become clear that Pleasanton is not a homogeneous town and there were many idiosyncratic (both good and bad) features in each neighborhood. We needed a local real estate expert who could understand our needs and guide us through this landscape to find our ideal home. Enter Julia! Her knowledge of the area and the real estate market is wonderful and she spent a lot of time trying to understand our specific requirements. Beyond that, she was the ultimate deal-closer. Figuring out the right kind of offer to make in a home we were interested in was challenging in the bay area seller's market. But Julia made this process a breeze and ensured we could get the deal we wanted without compromising on the contingencies. I would definitely approach her the next time I look to buy or sell real estate!
