"When we first met Julie, we were wet behind the ears!

We had no idea of what we could afford, but we were interested in checking out our options. Once Julie helped us to understand the buying process & exactly how much home we could afford, we began the search for our first home. Her noninvasive approach & patience was unsurpassed! Although she was very busy, we always felt like we were her only clients. She was repeatedly available with answers to even the silliest of questions. And when we found THE house, Julie made it happen. Two years later, we were ready to move up. Once again, Julie was ever supportive! Over each hurdle (and believe me, there were many), she shined! It was such a comfort to have her on our side. Her knowledge, professionalism, perseverance & assiduousness made our most recent purchase possible. She's persistent, detail-oriented, attentive & exacting - just what one needs in a great real estate agent! Thank you so much, Julie! You truly have made our family's dream a REALITY!"

"ABOVE AND BEYOND" - Julie Maddox took great care of me throughout the entire purchase of my new townhome.

She stayed on top of everything, always kept me in the loop, & represented me with the upmost professionalism & courtesy. I truly admire her sense of knowledge & expert attention to detail...she left no stone unturned. Everything was smooth and easy! Julie's my new BRFF (Best Realtor Friend Forever).

Amy Yoshimoto

"Julie came highly recommended by a co-worker.

She made my first-time home buying experience a pleasure! She guided me through every step & answered all my questions in great detail. Julie actually talked me out of homes that weren't perfect for me. She found a beautiful newer home with an extra bedroom & extra full bath. It exceeded all my expectations! I am very thankful to Julie for her professionalism, knowledge, experience & humor. I look forward to working with her again on my next home purchase."

Diane Rader

"When we moved from Arizona to California, we were hit hard with sticker shock.

Julie patiently worked with us as we learned about the real estate market in California. She gave us listings to look at for all over L.A. County. I believe she was up late nightly to provide this information for us. Through it all, we found a home in a lovely, safe neighborhood that we could both afford and enjoy."

Kris Maine

"Simply stated, we cannot imagine selling our old home & purchasing our new home without the support & guidance of Julie.

After interviewing several agents, Julie was our clear choice. She is a full-time professional who is frank & honest with expert knowledge of her field - it shows! Julie was involved in every step of selling of our home. She helped us determine the best selling price, guided us in staging & developed a comprehensive marketing plan. As a result, we had multiple offers & accepted the best offer within the first week. After such a positive experience selling our home, it was a natural choice to partner with Julie on the purchase of our new home. As our buying agent, Julie maintained her high level of engagement & passion in finding our future home. She understood our needs & was on top of every detail. Julie is highly networked & respected in her field. In no time, our new home was found. Julie worked closely with trades, mortgage consultants & financial advisors to help us “close the deal”. Julie is a strategic thinker who worked tirelessly & aggressively with both buying & selling agents. She was very responsive & kept us “in the loop” at all times. Julie has a unique combination of skills that allows her to keep things on track while sheltering us from the maddening details of selling & buying a home. She made the process of selling & buying a home almost painless. In the end, we found our perfect new home & a friend along the way. Thanks Julie!"

Christopher & Leslie Corbett

Julie amazed us by her hard work & dedication in selling our home.

She had so many obstacles to overcome in moving our multi-generation family out of state. We don't know what we would have done without her or how anyone can take the chance to sell their home without a resourceful & professional agent like Julie. She not only was our hero in getting our home sold, she referred us to an excellent agent out of state.

Walt & Darlene Lopchuk

"We can't say enough about the great experience we had working with Julie.

Having experienced both a purchase and a sale prior to working with her, we figured that all agents were the same and by the end of each experience, you pretty much got used to the forgotten details, missed opportunities and general lack of consistency. What a surprise it was to work with Julie! The level of absolute professionalism and follow-through she maintains are so gratifying. We never felt like we were waiting for an answer. On the contrary, Julie always knew what was going on and anticipated our needs before we did. Every detail of our recent purchase was handled with complete control. Her advice was priceless and continues to be so! The bar for real estate service has been set very high. We don't want to work with anyone else."

Bill & Nell Crawford

"When we purchased & sold our first home in Redondo Beach, we used Julie as our real estate agent.

Julie went above & beyond to make both transactions a smooth process. Even after the sale, Julie helped resolve additional financial issues with our previous Homeowner's Association. Julie was available for us 24/7. She is a wonderful agent to have working for you & we can only give her our highest recommendations."

Tom & Angela Geissler

"Julie is the best!

She was our agent with the purchase of our first home. We felt completely confident, informed & secure with Julie. Her knowledge & experience were provided in a very friendly manner. She went well over "the extra mile" for us. Julie made our largest purchase to date a pleasant experience. We look forward to working with Julie again in the future on our next purchase. She is a star at what she does!"

John & Judith Tergina

"I wanted to thank you for all your hard work, professionalism & the detailed oriented way in which you handled my townhome purchase.

I am firmly positive that without your help, I would not be as happy as I am with my purchase. I will continue to spread the word & refer anyone I know who is looking for the very, very best in real estate professionalism. When it comes time to move into something larger, I will be sure to contact you. Thank you again for all your hard work & kindness."

Dan Bresnahan

"If you were to design what you wanted from a real estate professional, I mean what your ideal service experience would be, you would find that it would look exactly like the service that Julie provides every day!

! Whether you are buying or selling, Julie's mix of professional experience & practical wisdom will help you no matter whether this is your first home or fifteenth!!"

Colin Mackenzie

"We enlisted Julie's help 3 times in the South Bay real estate market: a temporary rental, a purchase & a sale.

In each case, Julie was always caring, professional, knowledgeable & enjoyable to work with. She listened to what our goals were & never wasted our time (which I think is very important in a Realtor). Julie became more of a friend than a business person to carry out a real estate transaction. Since moving to Arizona, we miss her. I wholeheartedly recommend Julie as your real estate agent & am open to answering any questions anyone might have about our experience with her."

Tom Delaney

"If there was an Oscar for real estate agents, then Julie should definitely get the "2001 Best Agent" Academy Award.

From home selling coach all the way to home buying "walk thru" consultant, Julie was not just a "pro", but also a "big sister" with all the sense of humor that goes along with it. Not only was Julie detail oriented during the sale of my old home, I was quite amazed at how she handled the inspection process of our newly constructed home. She pinpointed tiny holes to be patched, kitchen vents to be resealed & even floor tile marks to be refinished. "Thumbs up for Julie!" She will always be my nomination."

Carmen Wee

"Julie did a fantastic job for my husband & I & our 4 children in relocating from Australia.

She found us a gorgeous home on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Julie became clued in early to what we were looking for, our price range & our style. She gets to know her clients needs, then works hard to see they are met. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy in this area."

Emma Rossi

"Julie has been our agent for 3 real estate transactions.

In each case, she has been the perfect blend of knowledge, experience, patience & understanding. She has a broad knowledge of all the details involved in selling or purchasing a property, as well as first-hand experience to be able to provide valuable opinions on repairs, design, styles & the latest trends. Julie handled the paperwork for each transaction very smooth, everything was organized & ready when we signed the documents. All questions were answered clearly & we felt very comfortable with our decision when it was done. Julie has been a terrific real estate agent for us!"

Steve & Jeanne Grant

"Julie was referred to us by a close friend to assist us in the sale of our home in the South Bay.

From the very first consultation with Julie, we have been absolutely amazed with her fantastic attitude, professionalism, attention to detail & first class customer service. She worked non-stop to make sure our home was prepared to sell quickly, while realizing the maximum potential return. We really don't think Julie sleeps. She is literally on the job 24 hours a day. She took charge every step of the way. She completely explained every nuance of the sale process making sure we understood & were comfortable with every facet of our home sale. She had multiple buyers for our home in less than two weeks. When it came to finding contractors to do the final repairs before the sale, Julie not only provided us with a selection to choose from, she also took charge & coordinated all of them for us. We didn't have to lift a finger. Julie does it all! We were so impressed with Julie after the sale of our home, we had her take the helm of the sale of our townhome in Arcadia. Again she performed like the pro that she is. Our home sold within a couple of weeks at the price we wanted. Julie did a fantastic job of coordinating a smooth & stress-free transaction. When it came to the search for our new home in Palos Verdes, I only had one Realtor in mind to assist us. Julie relentlessly searched for the perfect home for us. In the past, I have engaged Realtors that have taken the shotgun approach to finding a home, providing us with a big list of potential homes & leaving us to narrow the search. Julie paid close attention to all of our requirements & made sure to ask us everything she needed to know to focus our search. She did all the legwork up front & only had us review homes that met our needs. Within a very short time, we found the perfect home. Once again, Julie was totally dedicated to making sure all the details were taken care of during the home purchase and move-in process. She kept in close contact along the way making sure the transaction was going smoothly & exactly to plan. She went to bat for us on several occasions to ensure we got the best deal & all of our needs were accommodated. After our home purchase, we started remodeling projects. Julie provided us with several outstanding contractor contacts for the remodeling jobs. In addition to setting up many of the appointments for us, she also followed up with every contractor to make sure the jobs were completed to our satisfaction. To this day, she continues to contact us on occasion to see how we are doing in our new home & to offer any assistance to us. We have sold & purchased many homes over the years, but never have we come across someone that genuinely cares about their job & customers more than Julie. She not only will be our Realtor for life, she will also be a friend for life. Once you have her assist you with your transaction, you will know exactly what we are talking about."

Larry & Heather Moretti

My sister and I employed the expert services of Julie Schulte Maddox to help us sell our family home in Palos Verdes Estates.

What a pleasure to work with Julie during the fall of 2011! Neither my sister nor I had ever sold a house before, but Julie made the whole process positive and efficient. Due to Julie's efforts, we had an offer that resulted in the sale for our mother 's home in less than four weeks on the market (during the slowest quarter of the sales year, no less). Julie knew just what was required to help us prepare an older house for sale. Her extensive pool of contacts provided the workers needed to make repairs and improvements. Because my sister and I both live out of California, Julie was there to line up the teams to come in, to supervise the inspections, to authorize purchase of necessary materials, to review the quality of the work done, and, on one occasion, to put on gloves herself and pull junk out of my parents' garage for the hauler to take away. That is service! Of course, the marketing of the house through Julie's online network of contacts was key to the success of the sale. Julie used her deep experience of the Palos Verdes real estate area to help us arrive at an appropriate asking price that would generate interest in the property and lead to a speedy sale. At the final stages, Julie's negotiating skills kept the deal moving forward and brought about agreement between the buyers and ourselves. Also important to me was working with a broker I could trust implicitly to look out for my interests and communicate well with me during the entire process. Julie did that with humor and grace!

Debbie Littlejohn

"We had an extremely limited time to find a home.

Julie understood exactly what the needs of our relocating family were as we moved into a completely unfamiliar area. We were always made to feel like her most important clients with answers & solutions seemingly at a moment's notice. All this across three time zones! We could not have asked for anyone more focused or professional."

Tab Noble

"We just completed our fourth (4TH) transaction with Julie Maddox.

She has assisted us with purchasing and selling income property, selling an ocean view property, and most recently purchasing our return to California home in an idyllic setting. She is a relationship builder with her clients and seeks to provide opportunities that meet their needs. Julie is a career real estate professional who takes her client's needs seriously. Diligence, analytical ability, flexibility, client advocacy, forthright, and resourcefulness are some of the myriad characteristics which make her our real estate agent of choice."

Joyce Ridley-Scott

"Julie is one of the most honorable people I have dealt with.

She listened to what I said & took me to exactly the home I was looking for. We made an offer & Julie did everything. Every detail was handled in the most professional manner. Service is Julie's credo."

Dardy Minsky

"I have had the pleasure to be involved in several real estate transactions in which Julie was the agent.

During each, I have found her to be extremely knowledgeable & very tenacious every step of the way. Her follow-up & attention to detail is impeccable."

Bernie Labowitz

"My husband and I were referred to Julie by our loan broker.

We were newlyweds of 6 months and looking to buy our first home together. From the beginning, Julie was amazing. Our first contact with Julie was over the phone, where she asked specific questions about what we wanted in a home, location, etc. She came to our apartment for our first meeting. As soon as Julie knew what we were looking for, she sent us listings which honestly took into account what our needs were. She researched each property we asked about and would call or email us back to say 'Are you sure you really want to look at this?' because the house was right next to a power line or something. Julie was honest and straightforward about all the properties. When looking at homes together, her years of experience allowed us to see many things we would not have normally noticed. When it came to signing our loan documents, my husband was working out of town in Santa Maria, CA. Julie, being a Notary Public, drove with me to meet my husband part way so he would not have to drive the 8 hours roundtrip during a storm. With a very quick escrow, Julie was tremendous in getting estimates & helping line up contractors to do the work we wanted completed before we moved into our new home. Overall, our experience with Julie Maddox was extraordinary! We value her as a friend and truly appreciate all the hard work she did for us in buying our first home."

Clay & Denise Nestlerode

"I had no idea what an emotional process selling my home would be!

Thank goodness someone did, my Realtor, Julie Maddox. Although Julie came highly recommended to me, she still had to gain my confidence. Well, she very soon did! I learned that I could count on Julie to do what she said, to look out for my best interest and to be sensitive to my feelings. Julie also took any unnecessary stress out of my life by keeping me well informed, explaining all the nuances of 'selling' and taking care of all the paperwork. When I was looking for a new home, Julie had the patience of a saint. She previewed countless homes so my own time was never wasted on viewing the homes I would never have liked. And, she wasn’t discouraged when I was unable to find something to buy for almost a year. Once finding the perfect place, we breezed through the normally stressful bidding process. Once again, Julie took care of the paperwork, even helping with the formalities of obtaining a loan. I love my wonderful new home and my Realtor, Julie Maddox, my dear friend, Julie!

Wynema Watson

"I had the pleasure of hiring Julie to help us find a home for our family.

The process of finding a house that we could consider calling home was a long and winding one. Throughout the 9 months that we were her clients, we would come to appreciate Julie's immense effort and dedication towards helping us locate the right property. Her professionalism, keen eye for detail, her deep understanding of the buying and selling process as well as her endless patience, especially with a picky client like myself, are just a small number of her unique qualities. As first time buyers, she educated my wife and myself on all aspects of the buying process and literally held our hand all the way to closing. No detail was left unattended to. Her calm, quiet confidence and years of experience gave us the sense that were in great hands. If you are looking for an agent to represent you in a real estate transaction, look no further."

Eran Conforty

"Working with Julie brought these words to mind: Helpful & Truthful - Getting our home ready to sell was a chore.

Julie looked at all our stuff & had us pre-pack as much of it as possible in order to make our home look less cluttered. Her directness in staging our home helped facilitate our sale. Realistic - Julie listed our home at a price which brought us the highest possible return in a very competitive market. She answered every question & left us without any doubts. Patient & Secure - Julie was extremely patient during the time we needed to get our home ready. We felt secure in our home during the broker's open house & viewing process. Trustworthy & Thorough - Julie explained the paperwork that needed to be completed & signed so we understood our transaction. She worked very hard to time the closings of both our sale & purchase perfectly. Dependable - Above all, Julie was there when we needed her. We will never forget her commitment to us."

Ed & Sue Walters

"I learned about Julie through her website.

She helped me buy my first home. Julie is very pleasant, patient & extremely knowledgeable. I have a habit of asking many questions & Julie always had the answers right away! She always made me feel that I was her most important client. Julie is truly the best & I recommend her without any reservation."

Maziyar Shoaee

"Julie has been our dear friend & Realtor for the past 9 years.

In December of 1996, we decided to buy a home in Torrance. We had been renting for 4 years & needed a place to call our own. We had an agent who was sort of helping us at the time & we received a Christmas card from Julie who lived in our neighborhood. We were not pleased with our current agent so we called Julie & explained to her what we were looking for. Lo & behold, she LISTENED to us & found our little abode which we moved into in less than 3 months. While living in Torrance for another 6 years, we purchased a cabin in Wrightwood, CA, as our weekend getaway, with the help of Julie, of course. She worked very close with our agent in Wrightwood making sure all documents were correct & the transition was smooth. After owning the cabin for 1 year, we decided to move to Wrightwood full time & sell our home in Torrance. Again, Julie stepped in to help sell our home & make our move to Wrightwood a pleasure instead of a burden. She did a fantastic job of getting the home ready, knowing exactly what needed to be done with the least amount of money in the least amount of time. Always the professional, we highly recommend Julie Schulte Maddox for any of your real estate needs."

Larry & Dianna Piles

Julie was a godsend to us.

Our challenge was that we were looking for a home from afar, unable to easily visit potential new homes or even know which local areas would be the best for us. Julie was so knowledgeable, helpful, and patient over our long search period. She definitely knows her business - every aspect top to bottom -and offers it in a relaxed and comfortable manner. She makes herself available at all times, would visit prospective homes for us, prescreen, and even sent downloadable videos to review which saved us many unnecessary trips. Now that's amazing service, but I think is par for the course for Julie. Because we weren't local, Julie also freely handled many tasks that really should have been our to deal with. Though she never said it explicitly, she really does do anything and everything needed to make the process of buying or selling a home as enjoyable and hassle-free for her clients as possible, regardless of the time or energy required on her part. We feel lucky to have found her and will certainly go to her when we move again. Thanks for everything Julie!

David Whaley

"I would like to commend Julie on the outstanding job she did to find me a home & get me moved in.

On my recent townhome purchase, I was extremely fortunate to have had the benefit of Julie's knowledge, skill & expertise in real estate. From my very first contact with Julie, I was very impressed! She assessed my needs & desires & showed me many suitable properties. Julie was very knowledgeable about the demographics of the area, investment suitability, convenience of locations, property values, available resources & many other items that a person needs to know before purchasing a home, which is a big commitment & sizable expenditure for most. She arranged her schedule so she could meet with me to review the many nuances of purchasing real estate in this volatile market. When I decided what property I wanted to buy, Julie was right there helping me with the decision & telling me all the pros and cons. Her advice was absolutely essential & extremely helpful. Julie was always available for questions & always responded quickly to my calls. She was present at the inspection & her advice was very helpful. Before closing, Julie made certain that I had all the necessary paperwork completed & all the tasks done. That was so very reassuring! Julie, figuratively speaking, held my hand throughout the entire process & I am very grateful. I just love my new townhome & it suits me perfectly. Julie's years of experience in real estate gives you a high level of professionalism, knowledge & expertise necessary for any transaction. Julie has a high level of integrity making her very honorable & trustworthy. In addition, Julie's charming, gracious & charitable personality creates a truly winning combination. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone!!"

Steve LeMire

"Julie is one of those "miracles" in my life.

I first met her in 1991 when I needed help finding tenants for one of my houses. My mother was very ill & I was spending all my spare time with her, leaving me unable to respond to rental calls, screen tenants or show my property. By some stroke of luck, I found Julie. She marketed the property for me & got excellent tenants using a practical, knowledgeable approach, a sense of humor & the utmost professionalism. I was so pleased with the quality of her services that I have continued to use her as my Realtor ever since. Julie has been my rental agent on two houses in the South Bay by helping me manage these properties & always being there for my tenants. She also handled two 1031 exchange sales on properties for purchases in other states. When I moved to Hawaii a few years ago, Julie sold my home in Torrance. I found it is possible to live in Hawaii & have rental property on the mainland because I had Julie as my agent. Julie is also very knowledgeable in home construction with a wealth of contacts for any remodeling or repairs. Over the years, she has shared her contacts with me for my home & rentals plus she has assisted in working directly with the contractors. I know she works long hours as evidenced by the many midnight emails I receive from her. Julie is all those things you could ever want in a Realtor: patient, professional, knowledgeable, practical, persistent, responsive, results-oriented, never missing a beat or detail, & a good sense of humor as well. I recommend her to my friends & I strongly recommend her to you!"

Mary Neudorffer

"Julie is conscientious, thorough & dedicated to providing the highest quality of professional service to her clients.

With her expertise in home construction & remodeling, she provides her clients with the ability to visualize both problems & creative possibilities, whether minute or major."

"I am writing this review on behalf of my mother who was the owner of 5429 Calle Mayor Street in Torrance. After living in her home fifty three years, my mother was not in good health and unable to live on her own so she had to sell her home and come to live with me. Originally I chose an agent that was a friend but after a few weeks I realized the task was much bigger than expected, she did not have the history of experience she needed and it required an expert with a lengthy history that I could trust 100%. I interviewed three more agents reccomended by our accountant and trustee and chose Julie Maddox. She was more than I had hoped for. I was so grateful for her service at a very stressful and difficult time in our lives. It was very smoothe from beginning until the end. I would highly recommend Julie Maddox."

"Julie is one of the very best professionals I know in any line of work. Closing real estate transactions is a lot more difficult today than it has ever been, thanks to layers of regulation, on top of government policy, resting on a seemingly endless stream of new laws. Add to that mortgage process in today's market and closing escrow has never been more difficult. Julie, like a chess master always seems to be anticipating the next move and couple of moves ahead. She is VERY good at making sure escrow closes successfully, both on the buy and sell side of a real estate transaction.This is my 5th transaction with Julie and she is the only person I will turn to for help with real estate purchases or sales."
