Julie was amazing. She spent a lot of time explaining things to us and did a great job answering our questions. She was very responsive. She organized all of our inspections and all of her inspection contacts were extremely knowledgeable and great to work with. Julie was especially great during the offer phase. She knew exactly when to push us to move faster to make sure we did everything in a timely way, and this was critical for us getting the house. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone I know who is looking to buy a house.

Julie, Thanks again for spending so much of your valuable time showing Shon and I Ann Arbor. It is extremely helpful for us to now know what to look for and anticipate in the coming months and we trust you implicitly. We're looking forward to more good times with you and wish you a great end to 2019!

Erin and Shon 2019-12-01

Julie, thank you for ALWAYS being there for my family and me at the most crucial times. Leaving Melrose was one of the hardest time of my life - I will never forget that you showed up at my closing. You got me into a rental for my interim 2 years and you helped me find a new home for my family. Your support and willingness to dig in with the Sorscher/Auer families is so appreciated. Many many thanks for being a part of our lives. Peace and love, Holly.

We will pass your name along to anyone looking for a Realtor, we had a very good experience with your help.

Julie is a fantastic Realtor, the best one that we have ever met. She helped us sell our house in Michigan this summer. She has great communication skills and is very professional. She always replied our emails and calls quickly. Everything she recommended works and she helped us sell the house within one month, and also at our favorable price, which is about $5,000 higher than another Realtor we interviewed before her. One thing I like her most is that as a Realtor, she cares about what will work best for us. Selling home is not an easy process, but we couldn’t make this without her!

This letter is written as a strong recommendation for Julie Svinicki. As a Human Resources Manager with the Ford Motor Company, I have relocated numerous times around the United States. Under the best of circumstances, the process of selling and/or buying a house can add to the stress associated with relocating your family and starting a new job. In my experience, the caliber of the Realtor supporting our relocations significantly impacted the quality of our moves and our resultant satisfaction with our new homes. Julie Svinicki did a truly exceptional job supporting my family and I in our home search in the Ann Arbor area. The personal service, attention, responsiveness and experience were easily the best that we had ever experienced. Julie's knowledge of the local real estate market and her extensive network of contacts were extremely valuable. Julie confidently and professionally represented our interests and wishes during the home search, negotiations and throughout the entire home purchase process.

“Julie Svinicki personifies high-energy, hard work, creativity and AWESOME communication skills! More importantly, she can be trusted completely and she "speaks the truth", always. Julie is solution-oriented and with her experience in the marketplace, you can be completely confident you are in the very best hands when you entrust her with your real estate needs! I truly couldn't give anyone a more affirmative recommendation...than I give to Julie Svinicki! :)

Terry Brown (former President, Metropolitan Title Company) 2012-01-26

Julie, Thanks for everything! We couldn't have done it without your help! Keep in touch.

Doug and Tina Gross 2011-09-30

We have been very happy working with Julie Svinicki as our seller's agent. From home staging tips to marketing strategies to contract negotiations, Julie has been fantastic. For example, during the buyer's inspection, they found an issue with Orangeburg Tile, and Julie was able to work out a solution by contacting the right people and keeping the buyer motivated. And when our appraisal came in lower than we had expected, Julie worked with the buyer's lending agency to fix the discrepancy. Julie helped us sell our house in three months, and at asking price. We couldn't have asked for more!

Amy and Stephen McKenna 2011-05-11

I have a couple other folks (one a new faculty hire) who may be looking to buy and I have given them your contact information and told them that you are the best! I appreciated how carefully you listened to my concerns and I felt that throughout the entire process--from the search, to the initial offer and negotiation, to the inspection, to the move-in-- that you were always on my side, looking out for my best interests in dealing both with sellers and other agents.

Stephen Berry 2011-03-16

Julie was truly amazing in her ability to accommodate our schedules that made it possible to put a bid on a house at the end of each of our several day longs visits. The place we ended up getting turned out to be quite complicated requiring multiple inspectors (including asbestos inspector who (unfortunately) found asbestos). That is when Julie truly went into high gear. She worked until 10PM one night with Denise and me putting in a proposal to the sellers. The sellers eventually agreed to have all asbestos removed. I was very impressed, drawing the analogy to the long hours that we physicians put in when at the bedside of a sick patient. I am very happy that we went with the Reinhart Relocation team and I whole-heartedly recommend Julie to any future recruits that relocate to Ann Arbor!

To Whom It May Concern, We hired Julie as our realtor to buy a home in Ann Arbor, MI at the beginning of 2009. From the beginning, we liked her professionalism and friendly demeanor. She was very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Ann Arbor and its surrounding towns. Her key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our home. Julie seems well-regarded and respected by her local peers in real-estate; that proved very helpful for us. After patiently going through a few listings and visiting a few of the houses, Julie quickly understood the kind of home and community we wanted for our growing family. We found a house we really liked in a matter of days. Then, she was very competent at helping us make the best offer considering matters like the amount of time the house had been on the market, the kind of seller we were dealing with, and the real estate market (national and local) at that particular time. The property was listed for $399,000, but we purchased it for $371,500; a great deal for a great house. Rather unexpectedly, a year later, work asked us to move and we had to sell our home. We contacted Julie once again. She was also a great seller. She gave us good, direct advice on how to “stage” the home and at what price we should list it. We listed the house at $389,900, and after receiving 3 competing offers (a seller’s dream), we sold it for $399,000. Julie handled the multiple offers very well making phone calls and negotiating all along the way. We felt that she always had our best interests in mind. She warned us that the offer price was not everything, and we should also consider the financial state of potential buyers as well as their respective stipulations. This proved to be very useful, and profitable, advice. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling in the Ann Arbor area, we gladly recommend Julie Svinicki to protect your best interests and help you manage the process. Julie balances her sweet and positive attitude with solid negotiation skills and a thorough knowledge of her local market. In many ways, Julie is our benchmark when we consider realtors--wherever we are.

Awesome, reliable & trustworthy. If you need her, Julie will be there!

I would like to introduce you to Julie Svinicki -- she is an incredible Realtor – helped us buy our house and sold our house in less than 4 days. The beauty was that she knew exactly what we wanted – found the house that we should buy, got us in to the house the day it was launched on the market and had an offer in before midnight – we got the house b/c she beat 2 other offers by just a few hours. As you will find – really good houses in this area are sort of hard to find – she having a great realtor is key.

-Aileen Huang-Saad—(personal referral to David Jsa, who purchased his first home shortly afterward with Julie.)

Julie made the experience of selling our Mother's house much easier. She helped every step of the way. She usually had the answer to all our questions and if not she would find them for us. I would definitely recommend Julie Svinicki.

Pamela Nowak

Julie is an amazing realtor. What separates her from so many other folks I have worked with is that she actually listens and cares. I have now purchased two homes from Julie and sold another. Her caring is complimented by her honesty and her willingness to explain, educate and collaborate with her clients. Julie's vast knowledge of the market allows her to paint a realistic picture for clients (both buyers and sellers) while understanding the priorities of those she is working with.

Nikki Borges

We really appreciate all you help with what has seemed like the mammoth task of preparing my uncle and aunt's home for sale. Thanks for sticking with us through it all even though there were time we all just wanted to walk away. I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and that we can meet again sometime.


Julie was wonderful to work with. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. She was on top of everything. Would highly recommend. A++++++

Susan Thigpen

Julie Svinicki is our family hero this month. Her fine reputation preceded her and we knew who to call when Bobbi got serious. Julie is not just a wonderful neighbor and human being, she is phenomenal realtor. The entire time - she made my mom feel (and her adult children) like her only clients. We are truly grateful for the ease in which Julie guided the Rice Family through change and uncertainty. Pass it on!

Laura Rice-Oeschger

Julie: I am sorry for the delay in adding my two penny opinion on the sale of my house, but I do consider important to mention to you the excellent experience we had collaborating on this sale. As you know, we sold the house by owner but agreed on the commission on the buyers' side.  This decision came after two very sour experiences with Realtors that we had in the past.  Aside from the cost, we didn't like the way our former agents behaved and "served" us. During the sale of our home in Ann Arbor we were very stressed and on the edge but you managed to deal with us in a very professional way and put our minds at ease. We were mainly concerned by the fact that a colleague of yours, recently treated us pretty bad at the beginning by being constantly condescending and not communicating well with us. But all is well when it ends well. Thank you for what you did for us and we will always be kindly thinking about you. Best $10K we spent! Any time you need a reference from a happy customer we'll be glad to provide that to you.

Ovidiu and Liliana Toader

Julie is the best Realtor in town—she sold our house and it wasn’t even on the market!

-John & Lisa Gray (via Facebook)

Julie managed a somewhat complex set of transactions for us involving three properties spread over 70 miles and in three municipalities over the course of 6 months. Ms. Svinicki is very organized and precise. Her experience and professional ethic served my wife and I very well.

Bryce Kelley

Julie is a DYNAMO! You will not be disappointed if she is your Realtor — she works very hard for you!
