“Divorce is a difficult thing, especially when children are involved. Although mine were older, the thought of selling the home they’d spent so much of their childhood in was painful and scary. I interviewed many realtors and found that they were not at all skilled in, or empathetic about, working with couples who needed to buy and sell homes during the divorce process. Unbelievably, I even had a realtor tell me I should move to a nearby condo complex because that’s “where all of you divorcees go.”. I was floored!
Julie was different. Not only is she a spectacular realtor, but she understands and respects the sellers as human beings. She is that incredibly rare mix of empathetic and kind, and tough as nails when needed in order to close a deal. Julie made the selling process easy and she was a godsend when I began looking for my new home. She found me the house of my dreams, with stained glass and a front porch, in a town I hadn’t even considered living in, but Julie knew would be perfect for my lifestyle.
When put up against some sellers that were not meeting their end of the deal, she fearlessly won every single battle for me and even after I’d already bought my house believed that I could learn to do repairs and small fix/it jobs on my own. She was right. Julie is not only an incredible realtor, but an incredible human being. I can’t recommend her highly enough,” Jennifer Yaggi
“Julie recently sold our home for us. We lived there for 32 years; it was our first house. Having never sold a home before, we were quite nervous about the process. Julie made the entire experience a positive one. From our first meeting to discuss the “for sale” process, until the day of closing, she guided us. She texted or called us daily to give us updates and discuss the next step of the showing and then, selling process. Our house had an offer 11 days after the open house, and we closed 40 days later. It was a very hectic, stressful, and mostly emotional time, but Julie was awesome in guiding us through the process. Her empathy during those days was a great source of support and kept us focused. There is no doubt in our minds that selling our home would not have happened so quickly and smoothly without Julie as our realtor. We cannot thank her enough and highly recommend her,” Theresa and Kevin Broadbin
“Thanks Julie. I am elated and I couldn’t be more thankful. The other realtor and attorney said that you were wonderful too! Thank you, thank you, thank you!” Tim Poulin
“Julie is one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated agents I’ve ever worked with. I highly recommend her!” Jonathan Gibbons
“Julie was wonderful to work with during the selling of our house in Naugatuck and the search and purchase of our new home in Shelton. Julie gave us great advice on what to update that would appeal to buyers and offer the best return on investment. She did a great job taking photos of the house and got the listing on many site for maximum exposure. She set up an open house right away and sold our house the first weekend it was on the market. Julie was very quick with returning our calls/texts and made two complicated transactions easy to understand. Julie was very patient with us during our new home search. She made herself available for questions and multiple visits to homes we were interested in. Julie also came with a great list of referrals that helped make the selling and buying process go smooth. I highly recommend Julie Avellino to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, it’s one of the most stressful experiences you can go through, you want someone like Julie during these times.” Jessica Callahan
“I recently sold my home in Fairfield and wanted to strongly recommend my Realtor Julie Avellino. While everyone knows a real estate agent not only was she only one I was willing to use I also felt compelled to write a testimonial. Julie has strong capabilities in digital and online marketing presentations and is a fellow Fairfield University alum. She pays careful attention to detail, keeps you regularly informed, has great knowledge of the market, and was able to provide us with unique perspectives to make quality decisions. Please reach out to her for your real estate needs,” Eric Nishiyama
“I can’t fully express how grateful we are to have Julie Avellino as our Realtor as we try to sell our old house. She has truly gone above and beyond our wildest expectations and has helped us navigate the pitfalls and hazards of dealing with tenants. Thank you!” Kailen Pirro
“You EARNED YOUR COMMISSION!! Kind thanks and MEGA thanks, we were a nightmare,” Sellers
“Just saw a family friend – I told her all about how awesome you were and why we choose and would choose you a hundred times over any other Realtor. She is going to call you, just wanted to let you know!” Deanna Fonda
Working with Julie is so refreshing! Not only is she an expert in her field, she also genuinely cares about the happiness and wellbeing of her clients. She ALWAYS has her client’s best-interest in mind and will always provide you with the knowledge and honesty you are looking for in a Realtor,” Danielle Pennington (mortgage lender)
