My goal is to make the process of buying or selling a home an efficient, enjoyable and rewarding experience for you.
Here are just a few examples of what my clients have said about my real estate services:
"I cannot say enough good things about Julie and about the exceptional service that she provided to us during both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our existing home. Her advice was incredibly helpful and her calm demeanour really put us at ease during a stressful (but exciting) time. When we listed our home she added value by detailing for us how we could stage our home. She even provided many staging accents for us to use to really enhance our home and attract buyers. The photographer that she used was also great and the photos were very professional and attractive. Thanks to Julie's efforts our home sold just one day after it was listed!
"I have worked with Julie twice now, and I would not hesitate to work with her again. I would also highly recommend her to anyone. Julie is very knowledgeable and meticulous to detail. She was extremely helpful during the purchase of my home, and went above and beyond in the sale of my home. If I should move back to Ontario in the future she will be my first call."
"Julie was communicative and professional throughout the entire process of buying our first home. She outlined the steps needed, the potential pitfalls we may come across and explained the documentation thoroughly. Her analysis of the ongoing shifts in market conditions was accurate and influential to the buying process. We appreciated her candor and her unfailing dedication to seeing a deal through, no matter the day or the time.
In this difficult purchasing market, we had four deals fall through due to bidding wars and seller obstinacy. Julie maintained an upbeat attitude and revived our flagging spirits with her optimism and dedication. She was an excellent communicator and was in constant contact with us through a variety of means in order to discuss potential properties or ongoing deals. Her attention to detail and her speed and accuracy in dealings are what ultimately saw us successfully through and into our new home just in time for the holidays. To boot, Coldwell Banker and Julie purchased us our first Christmas tree to celebrate the holiday season in our new home!
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Julie. She was instrumental to getting through this taxing process with an excellent mix of positive attitude, professional conduct, speed and accuracy. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home. Thanks, Julie!

"Bumping into my Coldwell Banker real estate agent on the street (she was showing the house for sale across the street from my home) was the best happenstance I could have hoped for in efforts to sell my home in less than 1 week. Julie's insightful advice on the important of prepping and fixing minor repairs, her very talented and creative eye in staging my home, and keeping me in the loop at every step of the processes made things easy to me. By working together, our target sale goals were met in time, price, ease of sale, and superb pre-to-post homesale customer service. With moves, one typically experience many new stresses that come along with big transactions and life changes. I cannot say enough about how I experienced no stress at all by choosing (or rather, finding) Julie Schmidt from Coldwell Banker. #newcustomerforlife"
"We were so happy with our experience with Julie. She provided us with confidence and peace of mind during this stressful time. We were so lucky to have Julie!"
"I cannot recommend Julie high enough!!! Everything was planned, booked and executed to perfection!! She is the Ultimate Pro!!"
- Dave and Shelliza
"Julie is an exceptional sales representative for your company. She knew what I was looking for in a condo and found me exactly what I wanted. It was a pleasure to work with Julie. Every transaction from start to finish was executed with knowledge, skill and confidence well beyond my expectations."
"Julie was a great help when we were looking for our 1st home. Julie was very accommodating with her time allowing us to meet with her and walk through houses with very short notice. We are so happy our 1st house purchase was an easy process."
- Duane and Susan
"We couldn't have been more pleased with Julie. She helped us sell our house on the first day on the market! Julie was professional and polished from the day we met her. She has a fantastic website which intially attracted us to her services. Upon meeting her and having her walk through we knew that Julie was the agent that would get us the best value for our house. Julie went that extra mile to help us prepare our house for sale by suggesting small fix ups that make a big difference and even helped stage our house so we could really make it shine. Thank you Julie for being so awesome at your job!"
- Jon and Janie
"My partner and I tried to find a house on our own privately but did not succeed and were starting to become discouraged, so a friend of ours referred us to Julie Schmidt. Our experience with Julie has been absolutely amazing; she is very ambitious and pleasant to deal with. She made our first home buying experience very stress free and enjoyable. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home."
- Kathy and Jon
"As first time buyers, embarking on the journey of purchasing a home seemed very overwhelming. This was the case until we began to work with Julie Schmidt. Julie immediately put us at ease and allowed us to explore what was most important to us when searching for a property. Before we even began looking at properties Julie explained to us, in detail, the step-by-step process of purchasing a home. Julie was extremely patient with us and explained things thoroughly and in a way that we could understand. When we did find a property that we were interested in, it came with a number of obstacles. Julie helped us research options for overcoming these obstacles and contacted the city, discovering a way we could make our dream home a reality. She was also pivotal during the negotiation period as we were not the only interested buyers. Julie used her skills and knowledge to land us our first home! We truly believe that without her dedication and perseverance we would not be in the home we are in today."
- Amy and Derrick
"We were very happy with Julie's assistance in buying our first home. This being our first home Julie was very patient and took extra time to explain each step of the buying process. Julie was extremely organized, helpful and knowledgeable! We'd gladly recommend Julie to our friends and family!"
- Nelson and Nicole
"Julie did a great job - very thorough and professional!"
- John and Sandy
"Julie was an exceptional sales associate. She was great with follow-ups and communication and made great recommendations. I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends and family members."
"We were very happy with how quickly our house sold
- just 1 week on the market! Thanks again Julie!"
- Jeff and Dale-Ann
"Selling and buying is one of the most stressful things a person can go through, if it wasn't for Julie's personality and professionalism we'd be within this statistic. I'd recommend Julie to anyone who wants the best representative. Julie's customer service has been 2nd to none."
"Julie made our first home buying experience very simple and enjoyable!"
"I had dealt with another real estate agency and was shown many many homes and only one of which was exactly what I was looking for. I had made an offer on that home but was outbid. Julie showed me four homes all of which met most of the criteria and the third home she showed me, I bought and am so grateful to Julie for her efforts, support and advice. I am so happy especially with this being my first HOME!"
"I was impressed by Julie's preparation for the open house. The little touches undoubtedly helped us sell in only 2 days for 98.7% of list price."
"We were very satisfied wth the knowledge of the area that was provided by Julie as well as her willingness to show available properties."

"When we started looking for our first home with Julie we had a tight time-frame of three weeks to take possession. As if this wasn’t enough of a challenge in itself, we also dropped a long and tedious checklist of “must-haves” for Julie to work through. We were looking for a specific location, type and age of home, with easy access to university transit and surrounding highways, among many other things. Even on short notice Julie was able to line up seven beautiful homes for us to look at, all of which fit our criteria. Not only did she nail it on the first house, she was actually able to move our possession date forward by a week, to two weeks after our first day “shopping” and over a month before the seller was originally planning to leave.
As first-time home buyers, we were in over our head, but with Julie on our side everything went smoothly. She was efficient and highly professional every step of the way, helping us with everything from the mortgage broker and home inspector right through to the lawyer that was also capable of working on such short notice. We never could have done this without her, and truly can’t thank her enough!"
- Chris and Kelsey
"Julie made the process of buying our first home comfortable and a very positive experience. Her friendly, knowledgeable manner put us at ease throughout the process!"
- Ray and Lindsay
"I am a first time buyer that had flown in from the other side of the world and had less than a week to look at the local housing market. On top of that, my wife and I had extremely specific requirements with regards to the layout of our future house. Julie ended up showing us over 80 single detached houses over the course of 3 days!! It was a whirlwind of a tour!! My wife and I were exhausted but extremely happy with Julie because we found the perfect house for us. Even while my wife and I were resting, Julie was tirelessly working to setup the next days showings or handling the paperwork for our new home. Thanks a lot Julie!"
- Anthony and Kathy
"Julie's attention to detail, which includes her professional assistance with staging, helped us sell our home fast and with ease. She has boundless energy, a great personality and willingness to go above and beyond to create a tempting property for today's buyers. She has won our praise and we would recommend her to both buyers and sellers, who want their home purchase or sale to be a rewarding experience."
- Jill and Mike
"Very dedicated to her work... good job!"
- Joel and Tamara
I had the absolute pleasure of working with Julie to purchase my first home. From the very start, Julie was extremely helpful and accommodating, and ensured that my best interests were always her top priority. Julie’s attentiveness, attention to detail, and passion for the real estate industry is a rare and winning combination that isn’t easily found. With her hard working attitude and drive for success, she was able to find a home that perfectly suited my needs. I look forward to working with Julie again in the future and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know looking to purchase or sell a home.
"Communication was crucial as we were travelling through much of the sales period. Julie was great at handling this and other problems during a stressful time in a competitive market with many similar units on the market."
"From the moment we first met Julie Schmidt (sales representative) at the Waterloo Sales Centre for Hawksview Homes, we were very impressed with her professionalism and knowledge and felt very comfortable dealing with her during this very detailed portion of the process. Our lawyer, located in London, even commented positively on the mass of information forwarded to him for review. He stated it was one of the best document presentations he has encountered."
- Terry and Mary
"We were very pleased with Julie's professionalism, efficiency and punctuality. She was easy to talk to, explaining the process, and always kept us informed. We have already recommended her to friends."
- Ron and Carolyn
"Julie is very professional and very thorough. This is important because so many details need to be considered in purchasing a property. We really trust her expertise."
"Julie was amazing! She totally exceeded our expectations. The amount of effort she put into selling our house was super. We were listing with relatively short notice at the completion of renovations, and Julie was here until 9pm on a Sunday evening helping stage the home for showings. She kept us totally informed and answered all of our questions. We will highly recommend her to anyone else we know who is selling/buying."
