Judy is an amazing realtor! I was a first time home buyer, and Judy did a great job at answering all of my endless questions and connecting me with the various professionals that are required to purchase a home. I am fairly new to the area and she took the time to help me determine which neighborhoods would be the right fit for my life style. In this competitive market, she was able to get us in houses to tour prior to the bidding closing and getting my offer on the table in time (which in some cases was less than a 24 hour window of the home entering the market). In the end, she found me my dream home for this season of life in the location that fits me. I would highly recommend her to a friend and would reach out to her if I am purchasing or selling in the Durham/Raleigh area again!

Worked with Judy in purchasing an investment property. I'm from out of state and Judy was very hands on throughout the whole process. Great communication from the start. She's very knowledgeable about the area and kept me in a highly desirable, easily rented area. Took only a few days to find a property and closed a month later. I would definitely recommend Judy and will be using her again if I purchase in the Raleigh area.

Ken Tan

Judy was very helpful during our search for a rental home. She would quickly respond to any text messages or phone calls. I am definitely planning on using Judy when we go to purchase a home later this year!

Jeanette Mann

Judy was a referral, and I received rave reviews. I could not agree more with what was said! She is a good communicator and reliable, astute and savvy knowledge of the greater RTP area, and treats her clients like family. I look forward to doing more business with Judy, and for any of your property needs, I HIGHLY recommend .

Jamison Pfister

Judy is simply excellent. She is aware of the needs of her clients and attentive to all details. She is orderly, organized and courteous, not to mention a wonderful person. All things needing signatures are handled immediately, and she constantly makes you aware of the process as it unfolds. She is truly a gift.

Patrick Rugen

Would give 6 stars if possible - Judy was an ideal realtor from start to finish. Showed us a local breakfast spot during our first meeting, was able to consistently arrange showings within hours of our request (sometimes minutes), and always timely in her communication. Go Judy!

Alex S

Since I had met Judy, I always thought of her as an excellent realtor, but now I feel that I can call her a 'friend' as well. She is a lovely lady who brings joy to every text message, phone call, & FaceTime. If one desires to work with a realtor who is kind, energetic, and understanding---look no further!

Whitney Kost

My wife and I were new to the Raleigh Durham area and looking to rent a town home. We were incredibly lucky to have connected with Judy as she painstakingly researched what we wanted and sent us listing after listing that matched our needs. She was such a pleasure to undertake this process with that when it was all said and done, our two year old son asked about her when we finally moved in "where's Judy?"


Judy was a absolute pleasure to work with. This was our first home purchase in the US and Judy guided us through the whole procedure. She helped find houses which would meet our needs, and secured showings immediately - very important in this current market. There was no pressure to settle, or to look above our budget, but instead the focus was on finding the right home for our family. Judy has integrity, is highly professional, and has an engaging personality. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Kerry Urdzik

Judy was the best! I really loved working with her because she knows the areas I wanted to live in and her communication was dead on. Never had a problem trying to get a hold of her and she's a real fun person to be around. Great job! Thank you so much!

Vito Iannitti

Loved working with Judy! This was my second time and both times she found me the perfect house. The first one was a rental and the second one was a home I purchased. She is trustworthy, reliable, honest, knowledgeable and an all around great person to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home

Christine Exposito

Judy is the best Realtor that I have ever had help me. I have worked with Realtors around the US to help me buy, sell, and rent, and NO ONE was as attentive, honest, and knowledgeable as Judy. This is hard to find in this industry. She never quits and makes herself available to meet her clients' needs. JUDY IS THE BEST!!!

Stephanie Firestone

Judy is the BEST! Moving from Chicago to Raleigh with limited time to find a place... the pressure was high to say the least. We told her what we were looking for and she helped us find the most perfect rental unit. The unit met all of our needs and Judy definitely exceeded my expectations as a renter dealing with a realtor. Judy treated me as if I was purchasing a home and that is EXACTLY why when I am ready to purchase a house I won't go through anyone except her. She's easy to talk to, understanding, and she actually cares about people. She goes above and beyond, would HIGHLY recommend.

Tom Sullivan

Judy is amazing! She's been the best realtor I've ever worked with! She worked so hard for us and I can never thank her enough for all her help! I needed to complete a move from CT to Wake Forest, NC in 6 weeks and Judy was with us the entire time! I couldn't have done this transaction without her! She guided us through the process and no matter what the challenge, she worked us through it with ease. We are so happy with our new home and now have a friend for life!!

Kim Tully

We have purchased several homes in the last 30 years, and Judy was the best realtor we've ever worked with. As a long time resident of the area, she has a lot of "inside" information on home locations to maximize our investment if/when we sell. We lived out of town and discussed by phone the types of homes we were looking at. Judy helped us narrow down neighborhoods and styles based on our criteria and her observations. When we arrived in Raleigh to view the homes, Judy was spot-on! A great bonus, she shared a lot of historical sales data on our final choices so I could analyze sales and formulate pricing - however the trend analysis she provided was very well done and supported my research. Judy is very thorough and I would eagerly engage her services again

Duane Gay

I truly believe we would not have been able to find our future home if it weren't for Judy. Not only did she take time out of her busy schedule on the weekend to show us around, but she was also available Friday evening to show us properties when we got into town later than expected. Being new to the area, I was nervous about finding the perfect location for us. But Judy was able to lead us in the right direction based off of the description of what we wanted in a rental home. When we found the perfect townhome, she helped us jump on the property as quick as possible. We really can't say enough good things about Judy and we hope that she is available to help us start looking at homes to buy when we are ready in 6-8 months.
