Judy was enthusiastic and always made sure I had the latest information to make the best decision whether selling or buying. She assisted me in selling property after a divorce. She was very professional and was able to be a mediator between my ex and myself during a difficult time. After the sale of these properties she assisted me in purchasing a new house that met all my expectations. I would highly recommend Judy to anyone looking for an agent with high standards and the tenacity to get you the best deal.
This was the first home we purchased. We were not concerned about finding the right place or whether we could afford it. Our biggest concern was finding the right agent to carefully walk us through the whole process and fight for us to find the right place and price. Judy Graff was exactly this person. People don’t realize how much time and personal information you end up sharing with your agent, so it’s very important to find an agent that you can trust and get along with. We were lucky to find that in Judy.
Judy recently handled the sale of my aunt’s home in Sherman Oaks for me. As executor of the estate and trustee of the trust holding the deed, there was a lot of unfamiliar territory for me. After reading reviews for real estate agents in the area, I selected Judy to list the home. I was glad I did!
From the beginning, Judy adopted her role as the “seller’s agent” with a high degree of professionalism and enthusiasm. Her advice proved to be spot on, and I appreciated her calm demeanor when things became even more complicated (17 wildly different offers for the home flooded in the first week). This was not your typical sale due to differing disclosure requirements, legal issues, etc., and I am very glad that Judy was there to help me navigate the process.
I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Judy was very gracious in my search for a single family home in the Sherman Oaks-Studio City area. She is very professional and provided me with balanced advice, always keeping my best interests first. I truly enjoyed working with Judy and I appreciated all of her efforts on my behalf.
If I could make this a 10 star review I would…we absolutely loved Judy and would totally recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home in the San Fernando Valley.
We found Judy through Yelp and were so happy with the outcome! She set up a daily email with all the latest listings as well as updates in case any listings changed. She took us around to see a bunch of homes and followed up with us every week either through email or a phone call.
once we found our home, she was instrumental in helping us navigate the home buying process for the first time and she was very persistent and up-front with all our vendors and the buyers’ agent.
If you are looking to buy and or sell a home and need a reliable agent…look no further than Judy Graff…she is amazing!!
My husband and I chose to work with Judy based on the recommendation of a friend who had previously consulted with her about purchasing a home. After just one meeting, we looked no further; we knew she was the agent for us. We liked Judy’s very practical approach and her sense of humor and we trusted her judgment and integrity at every stage of the home buying process.
We bought just as the market was beginning to get a bit more difficult and we ended up writing several offers for various properties over the course of our four-month search. Judy was very supportive of our exploration of various neighborhoods from Valley Village to Burbank and she was incredibly informed about every location we visited. She was very mindful of our various criteria, especially our price range. She was honest when she encountered something alarming in a property or, as was sometimes the case, in communication with the selling party. Some agents will try to close a deal at any cost but Judy truly had our best interest in mind.
When the transaction on our accepted offer was made difficult by the other party, Judy remained the consummate professional. It would have been easy for any agent to walk away from this deal but Judy was tenacious in getting us the house we really wanted and graceful under tremendous pressure.
At every step, we were informed. Judy explained to us the process as it unfolded and each document that we needed to sign.
We felt tended to at every stage of our experience. Judy’s communication skills are unmatched. As our hunt intensified, she called us not just when there was news but also simply to check in when there wasn’t any news. Her contact – and the personable spirit of that contact – reminded us that we were important to her.
Judy is totally professional, a comprehensive thinker–big picture and important small details, super smart, funny, and a pleasure to work with.
Not long ago, I decided I wanted to sell our house in Burbank. Judy advised us very wisely to wait a few months and even though it was the middle of the real estate depression, under her direction, we very quickly sold our house in January and made a nice profit, much better than had we sold it earlier. She made the process go smoothly and I always trusted her to be both diplomatic and firm as she protected our interests.
She was there for us with the perspective of a true professional AND concerned friend. She was upbeat, informative, and had a “can-do” attitude that was invaluable.
Whenever I hear of anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in Southern California, I tell them to call Judy! I’d use her again in an instant if I was going to sell or buy a home today.
I want to thank Judy Graff for making another family dream come true !!! I actually should have written this review years ago….. Judy is OUR Realtor. She has represented us in 5 home purchases and/or sales in the Burbank and Valley Glen areas. She is knowledgeable and professional. I noticed that some of the other reviewers here mention her sense of humor and availability at all times…. and it made me smile and laugh… she knows real estate, she knows people, she is patient and kind. She equally can deal with a seasoned home buyer or a first time young couple or single. She has represented my parents, my husband and I, my daughters and son-in-laws and even helped with the purchase of the home my new grandson lives in! So 4 generations live in homes that Judy helped us purchase.
To those of you shopping for an agent, please look no further. Judy knows her stuff…
She will represent you well, give you an education about things you should be considering. She also is great fun to go look at homes with…. She is a realist, and practical.
We are all so fortunate in our family to live in quality homes that Judy Graff helped us get into….Thanks Judy. Until the next real estate transaction, I hope we actually can sit down and have a quick glass of wine sometime. Also her blog is so entertaining, she approaches the real estate ever changing world with humor and passion
After retiring at the end of 2013, I decided to sell my Burbank home of 28 years. Luckily, after some diligent Yelp and Zillow research, I found Judy Graff. Judy is a fantastic real estate agent and a consummate professional. Judy made some suggestions that helped me prepare the house for sale, and once the house was listed, she was on top of every detail so that all phases of escrow proceeded smoothly. Judy listed my home on 03/31, and it was sold at the open house which followed on 4/7. And, it also sold for 10,000 over list! Who can ask for more than that!! It is obvious that Judy loves her work because she does it so well. Besides helping me through every step, she was even of service to the buyers of the property. I had to leave the property before escrow closed and Judy oversaw an emergency repair to a gas pipe I discovered the night before I left. I simply cannot say enough good things about Judy. She is courteous, professional, wise, and the perfect person to advise you about buying or selling real estate. I would definitely use Judy again, and I would recommend her to my friends and relatives without hesitation. Judy exceeded my expectations in every area. She also has some excellent references for professionals you might need during the process, i.e. plumber, electrician, and even a rubbish guy. 5 stars for Judy for sure!
Judy stuck with me for over two years while in Sedona, working hard to find me a home in LA – without any assurance of a commission. How is that for loyalty and professionalism? When I finally bought, Judy shepherded me through everything while I was still in Sedona. Bulldog ?That doesn’t cover it!
