"Julie was a huge help throughout the HUD home purchasing process. She walked me through each step with ease and the transaction went extremely well, with minimum obstacles. Julie is easy to talk to and can answer any question posed to her!"
"Julie went above and beyond what we ever expected. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to make the sale and buy of a new home smooth and easy. She so seeet and personable and knows how to get the job done!! Everything was done in a timely manor and she kept us in the loop the entire way. If we ever had any questions she responded right away and really took the time to make sure we knew where we were in the process. We've now bought two homes through her and sold one and were so so please with her!!"
"Julie is a great real estate agent! She provided an excellent overview of the market in our area before we started the process of selling our house and helped us price it properly for a timely sale. As a result, we went sale pending in less than a month and just recently closed. Thanks Julie!!"
"Julie, I would not work with anyone but you short sale or otherwise. After our experience and dealings with so many agents, I realize just how valuable it is to have someone that you can trust and count on to really follow through. I am not exaggerating when I say that. You put your heart into your work, you really truly look out for you clients and I have not seen that in any other agent. I think that is what truly sets you apart from the rest."
"Julie is the best!!! I found her while browsing for homes on Trulia and she was a god send... My husband and I moved from out of state and were first time home buyers, that was a lot to take on all at once. Julie made the process painless. I have so many great things to say about her but will sum them up with these few important key qualities:
-Prompt response via email, text or phone
-She really knows her stuff :)
-Stuck to the criteria we had given in finding us the perfect property
Julie truly cares and will treat you like a friend, call her today for any real estate needs you may have!!!"

"Julie Baldino and Tara Freidt saved my family. My wife and I found the perfect house for our family. We had the down payment, and a little to spare. Well, that was until a bad appraiser used two hom es that appear to be short sales, and both had not been updated in 30 years. Julie Baldino was able to successfully challenge the appraisal, and Tara Freidt was able to negotiate a lower price with the seller while they had a standing back up offer that was higher than we could now offer). Simply put, they made it happen. You can't a better team of realtors than the professionals at Frontdoor realty. This is my second time working with Julie Baldino, and our first time working with Tara Freidt. They are without question two of the most professional, intelligent, compassionate and solution based professionals I have ever had the privilege to work with. You can't go wrong with Julie Baldino at your side"
