Julie is a dedicated, personable & highly skilled agent. Since meeting over a year ago, Julie has continually gone "above & beyond". She toured Santa Barbara with us prior to my husband even accepting his new position at Cottage Hospital & really helped us get comfortable with the city. She readily shared her wealth of knowledge about Santa Barbara, the events & traditions that make it special, and its many nuanced micro-neighborhoods.
Julie demystified the SB housing scene & made purchasing in a high-priced market less daunting. She was patient, thorough, & always worked to answer all of our *many* detailed questions. After accepting the position & renting here for a year we started house hunting in earnest. Julie was incredibly responsive, informative & helpful. She knows this city through & through and it shows.
When it came time to make an offer she was a fantastic advocate during our (sometimes tough) negotiations. She helped us line up the specialists we needed to inspect & assess our house to ensure we had as much information as possible prior to closing. She always represented our interests rigorously & professionally and has earned our complete trust & admiration.
We now consider Julie a close friend of the family. We couldn't be happier with our choice in choosing her as our Real Estate Agent, and gladly share this testimonial. Thank you Julie!

Julie Ouellette is a gem. I have worked with her both as a client and as the buyer when she represented the seller. In both instances, I was very impressed with her knowledge and her ability to get the deal done. Even when I was neither buying or selling, Julie has been a great resource for information about the local real estate community. I will be using Julie's services again in the near future.

We cannot say enough good things about Julie and her efforts in the sale of our home. She is a woman of integrity, intelligence, wisdom and grace. She was always available to answer our questions and concerns and helped us understand the process each step of the way. Julie was extremely helpful in getting repairs and improvements done to help advance the sale and has a wonderful reputation with professionals in those areas. She was very respectful of our time and household schedule so that showings and open houses were as smooth as possible. We simlpy love Julie and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Julie Ouellette is the only real estate professional I would use. She has listed several properties for me and has always made the experience a pleasure. Her knowledge of the market, her willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty and ability to close the deal is nothing short of amazing. She is the best!! Thanks Julie!

Julie knows the Santa Barbara community and the players in the local real estate business. She has been an invaluable resource for making my purchase and move work. Her assistance truly enables a client to handle details beyond even the nuts and bolts of the sale/purchase. There are always lots of those, and Julie has your back with all of them.

Julie is the best agent I have ever known or worked with. I cannot praise her highly enough. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. I could never have made it through these past few months without her knowledge, interest, care and concern. She will be my friend for life!!

This is our first home purchase. We would not have moved forward without the exceptional guidance, patience and knowledge of Julie Ouellette. Julie made it possible to have early viewings of upcoming properties, took us through every step of the loan and escrow process and always carefully explained every endless form we had to sign. We grew to trust her and now, happily on the other side of escrow, we offer the highest possible recommendation.

My wife and I have decided that our best real estate strategy is do just do exactly what Julie Ouellette recommends in all matters. The approach has served us very well.

Julie was great! She helped us during the entire process of looking for a house through remodeling it. She spent countless hours helping us with the remodeling of the new house, even after we had bought the house and her commission had long been paid, recommending workers and making sure they were showing on time and doing good work.

Julie Ouellette is an exceptional realtor, an exceptional person and you must be very proud to be associated with her. The smartest thing I ever did was pick my wife to be my wife. The second smartest thing I ever did was to pick Julie Ouellette to be my realtor to sell my first house. She transformed our well lived-in, much in need of repairs house to the "hottest" property in Goleta in an amazing time-frame. Scores of agents and people came to our first and only open house resulting in multiple offers and a selling price well above the listing price.

Julie was amazing. She did the work needed promptly and happily, so there was never any stress. She kept in touch almost daily with status on any outstanding issues.

Julie helped me sell another home about 6 years ago and was wonderful. The condo I sold last month was only on the market 5 days before we got an offer and went into escrow. The price was spot on and the unit was staged beautifully with her help. She truly goes over and above what would be required of an agent and I always recommend her to anyone I know that is either looking to buy or selling real estate. She is the only agent I would ever consider using.
121 Bath St. D5
Julie is one of the most dedicated and committed agents I have worked with. She helped us acquire the property, work through multiple issues during our ownership and was instrumental in the successful sale. Julie went above and beyond the call of duty and we hold her in the highest regard.

Julie is the BEST of the BEST. We love her so much and wouldn't trust anyone else with the selling of our precious home or the buying of a new home. She pays attention to every detail and takes the time to make sure we understand everything and take all the proper steps in buying and selling. She is an A+ person and agent and I would recommend her to ANYONE.

Julie was not only wonderful in her interactions with me across the board, but without her very active engagement and problem solving, I am sure this purchase would not have happened, given all of the problems that occurred with the seller's conditions.
-Dan and Dorothee Moncino
Julie was amazing. Stuck with me through a year of searching. She even helped post close of deal on getting the place fixed up and ready to live in.

Julie Ouellette is a superior agent. She handled my transactions with care, thoroughness, astute strategy, and the highest level of professionalism. I will recommend Julie to anyone needing an agent and I will use her on future transactions. Julie Ouellette is a valued partner in my real estate transactions. She is professional, strategic, and result-oriented. I will recommend her highly to anyone in need of real estate advice/transactions.

Julie was an ideal realtor for this transaction, which turned out to be more complicated than any of us anticipated. She was professional, extremely capable, hardworking, and excellent at communicating with all parties involved. Her advice was consistently good, and the time and effort she put into presenting the house at its best far exceeded my expectations. We were very lucky to have her as our listing broker.
Julie Ouellette is the greatest realtor of ALL TIME! Which is why we have bought two houses from her and are selling a house with her! She goes so far above and beyond her job that I can't believe our luck! I really cannot say enough about her. I wish everyone could have the experience we have. BEST realtor EVER!

Julie Ouellette was awesome! She is so friendly and knowledgeable. I was nervous about being a rookie with this large purchase and I felt that I was in really good hands with someone like Julie. After reading about how most short sales fall through for so many different reasons, I was surprised that my purchase went so smoothly. I think this is definitely due to Julie's experience level. I would recommend her to any of my friends or colleagues.

Julie Ouellette made my dreams come true! I have been wanting to buy property in Santa Barbara for the last 7 years. My sister recommended consulting with Julie as she said if anyone can make it happen...Julie can. She did and I am extremely happy with the outcome. It wasn't an easy transaction as it was a short sale with a lot of complications. Julie was there for me the entire time. I can't say enough about her abilities, competency and knowledge of real estate transactions. Century 21 is lucky to have an agent like Julie on board. Plus she is a nice person!

I wish you had a higher number we could mark when it comes to Julie Ouellette. We have never seen anyone work so hard for us and with so much knowledge. We truly appreciate everything she helped us with. We have recommended her already to a couple people who may sell in the future.

Julie is the absolute best! With the market being as crazy as it has been, it took me over three years to find a replacement property once I sold my house. She hung in there with me the whole time, always keeping what I wanted in the front of her mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Julie and Century 21 to anyone looking to buy or sell their residence.

Century 21 Butler Realty, and especially Julie Ouellette, were great. Julie made our real estate shopping and buying experience painless and pleasant. She was, and continues to be, in constant contact with us in an effort to make everything go smoothly. We could not have wished for a better agent. We will be recommending her to others in the future.

Julie is an exceptional Realtor. She worked so hard to get this transaction to work, putting in an unreasonable amount of time and effort to understand and resolve the exceptional circumstances surrounding it (bankruptcy court, multiple and higher offers following aqcceptance of our offer, etc.) She never gave up, even when our our will to continue had worn down! This is the second time we have purchased and leased a property with Julie, and we would never consider using any other Realtor.
-Grahame Waghorn and Kathy McGill

Julie is the only reason we were able to buy our house. She was always available to us. We felt like her only clients. She never gave up. Julie also had an amazing way of knowing what we would like. Julie is the most amazing Realtor I have ever known! We have referred her to 4 friends already! She is truly the best.
-Jon and Kym Bishop
We found Julie very attune to our particular needs and her thoughts on aspects of the properties were right on and very helpful. She has a great positive attitude that kept us going even after we were ready to give up on the "perfect" property! We would definitely use her again. She knows Santa Barbara and has great contacts too.

Julie has managed my property for years, and when it finally came time to sell, she did an excellent job in a hard market. I feel like she is part of our family. With agents like Julie, you have a winning team.
Julie went above and beyond what we expected of a realtor. I (Darlene, the wife) was already relocated to Florida. Julie helped my husband (Tom) with things that I would have done if I was there - including coming to the house multiple times to let workmen in, coordinating the staging of the house - whatever it took. She was amazing. Her knowledge of the market and what would sell was excellent. I would recommend Julie to ANYONE!

Julie Ouellette is awesome!! She definitely went way beyond the duties of an agent to help make the experience positive for us!
-Yen and Hung Kiet Tran

Julie Ouellette was the agent who did a superb job of informing us, updating us, and bolstering up our morale. Her work was beyond question the best - we interviewed several agents before settling on Julie -- and we were not disappointed. Julie made it seem possible that it would sell fast, and at our goal price.
