Julie McKechnie
Coldwell Banker Realty

In possibly the worst buyers market ever, and without us having to spend any time house hunting, Julie found us a house that ticked off everything we required in buying a home, and nearly everything we hoped for — attached with a price and process where we felt comfortable. Julie was a delight to work with — every time we talked with her, our anxiety went down and our knowledge went up. We couldn’t have done this without her. NICK & RACHEL WARINO, SACRAMENTO


It is rare to work with someone that inspires total confidence in you. Julie did just that when she took over the sale of our home in Concord. It had been beautified and staged but had no serious interest. It was suggested that we short sale our home. We sought out Julie because of her personality and reputation and she did not disappoint. She was great at explaining exactly what a short sale consisted of. Ours was not an easy sale for her and her team. Throughout the process she was a great communicator and we felt that she had our best interests at heart. The sale of our house was a big deal for our family and we really appreciated having someone so capable managing our experience. DAVID T., CONCORD


Julie was very professional and helpful during the process. I have worked with several real estate agents over the years and Julie definitely ranked #1! She always went above and beyond what is expected from an agent. I am extremely grateful and impressed. ROB, ARDEN OAKS

Julie helped us through the sale of a difficult property, she is our Realtor for life! JON & AMY, SACRAMENTO  
Our experience from the very first day to the final close was excellent! Julie was professional, resourceful and caring all at the same time. We will most definitely refer any future business to Julie. ROSE BLAKE, NAPA

Julie was highly recommended by others I work with and we had in instant connection of our desires and her understandings. Julie was excellent with her communications of how the sale was proceeding and quick to answer any questions not matter the time of day. Julie McKechnie was highly knowledgeable about the different areas of towns all over Sacramento when we were looking to relocate, not just sell our home. It was obvious that she has passion in her work and commitment to her clients. Julie knew the history of the neighborhoods in which we were looking down the quirks of areas that would meet our specific desires in a community. There was an instant bond with Julie that felt like we were being helped by a close family friend whom had known us for years. C.PECK, ELK GROVE 


Julie was great! I wouldn't have a house today if it wasn’t for her... She found me a place within 24 hours after we connnected, got me a fast closing which was what I needed. She handled all the issues as they popped up within a few hours or less. 100% full client service! If your looking for a GREAT AGENT you can’t go wrong with Julie McKechnie! BOB GRAHAM, SACRAMENTO


Julie McKechnie exudes the WOW factor! She continues to be professional and knowledgable. When it come to pressure, Julie handles it with ease. She was there to calm nerves and gave encouragement even when I didn't know I needed it! She is always accessible and returned calls, texts or emails as quickly as possible. Julie is a true professional and anyone doing business with her can feel confident they are in the best hands possible. Thank you again Julie! Another job well done! MICHELE, SACRAMENTO


Julie McKechnie takes a true interest and devotes time to her clients, she is always available for questions and always got back to us right away. It's easy to tell she cared about you getting THE house not just a house. Will be back to work with her again. SHANNON & KEN, SACRAMENTO 


Julie is the best and knows the best. From inspections to loans, she put us into contact with the best in the field. She knew what we needed even when we didn’t, was patient with us we needed it and honest with us throughout the process. Hands down the best. NATALIE, SACRAMENTO 


Julie McKechnie is an amazing broker. I followed her on social media and read her monthly newsletters prior to hiring her as my agent. I felt confident that she would take care of us! I never had any worries with Julie. She is kind, professional and very easy to work with. She kept us updated at every point along the way. She made selling our home easy! If I could rate her better than excellent, I would! CORLISS BOWER, SACRAMENTO 


Julie treats her clients like family. She went above and beyond to make sure that I understood everything and to get the best value for me. Would highly recommend her to any friend/family! KATHRYN CUNNINGHAM, SACRAMENTO 


Julie made sure the entire experience was seamless. I'm so glad that I was able to work with her and will seek her out again in the future should I have any real estate needs. JOHNATHAN, SACRAMENTO 


Julie is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and her work ethic speaks volumes. We felt completely at ease throughout the entire process. SUSAN REARDON AND MIKE HART, SACRAMENTO


We looked at a lot of houses with Julie before buying the perfect one. Given the current seller's market with multiple offers on every house, several of our offers were not accepted. Although we were under a time constraint, Julie was always reassuring that we would obtain the right house for us and maintained a calm positive attitude. She was right; we love the house! She kept us sane when we were ready to pull out our hair. We will always remember her with gratitude and fondness. RHONDA KRAUSE, SACRAMENTO 


Julie McKechnie was generous in her time in the years leading up to our house being ready to put on the market. We first met her in the early stages of dealing with our mom's estate and every time we contacted Julie for advice about whether to remodel or sell as is, she provided sound options from different perspectives that made sense. She never hesitated to give us of her time along the way, so when the day finally arrived to put the house up for sale, we felt a sense of loyalty to her although other agents were suggested by friends, etc. Julie never made us feel pressured into any decisions. She remained cheerful and patient even when we passed up several offers at the outset. When further offers failed to materialize for months, she came up with new pricing strategies to draw in traffic, and ultimately our buyer. Where we really appreciated Julie's professionalism was in handling difficult situations that arose. When she encountered that vagrants had broken into our vacant house, she quickly handled the situation by ordering them to leave, calling the police and waiting there till we could arrive. She also navigated the issue of the break in with the buyer's agent with care to ensure we did not lose the sale! Everyone involved felt a real sense of rejoicing when the deal was finally done! THANKS JULIE!! ROBIN KIPKE, CARMICHAEL, CA 


Julie is truly exceptional! She was there to guide me through the entire process as a first time home buyer. She really understood our needs and worked with us to find the perfect home. JASON, SACRAMENTO 


Julie McKechnie pays attention to details and timelines very well. She communicates clearly and was a great advocate for us and our interest. MATT, SACRAMENTO 


We whole-heartedly recommend Julie as a realtor. We wanted to sell our rental house but hoped to sell it ourselves. Julie was patient with us as we worked through the process of realizing we needed her expertise. She was honest, efficient, direct and worked very hard on our behalf. We had a qualified buyer within a short time of listing it with her, and she looked after our best interests throughout the process. At the "11th hour" of the sale we experienced a glitch which she successfully navigated us through. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a competent professional. S.D., SACRAMENTO


Your insistence to have the sellers purchase a home warranty for us is already paying dividends. The furnace stopped working last night and the repair man estimated about $900 to fix the issue. We called the warranty people and its covered! Thanks for all the sound advice guiding us through our first home purchase. MICHAEL & CRYSTAL YOUNG, SACRAMENTO


We had the most wonderful experience with Julie. She helped us through all the bumps in the road and was so reassuring when things got daunting. We call Julie our "Real Estate Angel" and she really was. The process was daunting and exciting but the best part was when Julie came to hand us the keys to our new home and she was as excited as we were! We would recommend Julie to EVERYONE who is looking to purchase a home. She's the best! Julie, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us on our new journey in life. Best of all, we have a new friend too! DON & SHARON PARSONS, SACRAMENTO


When you work with a real estate agent, you can only hope that they have your best interest in mind. My family and I were very lucky to have Julie in our corner as we upgraded to a new home and sold our old home. At that time, the market was very tricky. Low rates, low inventory, and a desire to maximize our return on our old house produced some tough decisions. Julie was always there for us. She was our sounding board, and most of all our partner throughout the whole process. Her advice and experience helped us make decisions that were right for our family. In the end, we got the property of our dreams and sold our old house at the for a profit that we were very happy with. We would refer Julie to our friends and family with confidence. HAYME LAKE, CARMICHAEL


When my wife and I purchased a house earlier this year, Julie went above and beyond in every way imaginable. In the beginning, she made a point to us to not make any hasty decisions and to genuinely consider what we felt was best for us without rushing us into a home. She made herself readily available to answer our incredible amount of questions (as any first time home buyer has) and her expertise as a realtor truly radiated, as did her professionalism. Julie is passionate and dedicated, but perhaps best of all, she is honest and knows exactly what she is selling. She made the process as easy as it could possibly be for us and we are immeasurably grateful for her. SAGE & AMY BOLLINGER-WARREN, SACRAMENTO


I was not a first time home buyer, but it had been almost 10 years since I last went through the process. Julie provided me with an experience that I did not expect. She made herself available to me and my family via phone, text and emails with responses in sometimes minutes, showed us many houses within our price range and gave extremely informed opinions when asked. She really made me feel that I was her only client (although I know I was not) with her level of service and support. In fact I was so impressed I chose her to list my other home for sale. I would and have recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell a home. ANGIE FORD, SACRAMENTO


We literally couldn't be happier with our home buying experience. Every step of the process, from start to finish, went off without a hitch and we owe it all to Julie's hard work, skill and professionalism. She has also since become a great friend and I'm sure everyone who's worked with her would give a similarly glowing review. I was referred by a friend with only wonderful things to say, and Julie's work far exceeded even my very high expectations. She was always willing to meet at my convenience, and text/phone calls were without exception immediately returned. Her knowledge of both home buying in general and the Sacramento market in particular were very impressive, but she was very focused on letting us make our own decisions. Overall, she gave us the space we needed while always happy to offer a well-informed opinion when we asked. She also maintains many contacts in the local real estate world which proved to be extremely valuable when it came time to write an offer. Julie also was very helpful in securing financing. She was a great advocate at every meeting with the title company, every inspector visit, contractor discussion, everything. Even now that the home has been bought, she continues to remain accessible and willing to answer any questions or help out with whatever we need. Wherever you are in the process, and no matter how much experience you have or don't have with buying a home, you won't find a better partner for your search. I'm confident you'll be as happy as we are. MITCH SEAMAN, SACRAMENTO


Thank you Julie you're amazing. If you need a real realtor Julie gets it done. ALLYSON JONES, SACRAMENTO 


I have to admit we worked with a lot of realtors before we worked with Julie. We had so many bad experiences along our journey to sell and buy a new home it took us about 3 years on and off. Then along came Julie, and everything changed. She was exactly what we were hoping to find. A realtor who makes you feel important listens to you and gives her best advice during the process. She only wants the best for you as a client. She makes you feel like you are her only client with devoted attention. She works in my opinion ten times harder than any of the other realtors we had experiences with. She is aggressive on your behalf and has your best interest at heart. She doesn't think of the money as her driving goal. She is genuine. She is passionate, and gets excited with you during the process. She will have your back. I know Julie is going to be a top realtor in Sacramento for many years to come, it fits her! There are so many days when we wake up in our new home, sit with a cup of coffee and reflect on how Julie made this happen for us and we are so happy with how everything turned out. SHELLE VIRAY, SACRAMENTO


Wow, where to begin? Julie was so amazing! My husband and I were going through a divorce and Julie handled everything with poise and consideration for this very uncomfortable situation. She listened so carefully to our needs/wants, was so informative, explained the market, what to expect, and had our best interest I mind. I think it was no more than two, maybe three weeks before we had an offer that we could not refuse, and within a month the deal was done! It was such an awful time in my life, but Julie made it so easy and was so compassionate. Her integrity, personality, and knowledge, made for the best experience I could have ever hoped for. Thank you, Julie, and I will never hire another realtor to help me sell my homes. SANDRA, SACRAMENTO  


Julie did a great job making us feel like we were in the driver's seat. Her patience with us as first time home buyers was greatly appreciated. She used her wealth of experience to help us make the right decision, rather than try to make a decision for us. She was flexible and worked around our schedule, since we had a young child. I would recommend her to anyone who is in the market for a home. M.M., SACRAMENTO 


I truly believe that there is not better agent than Julie McKechnie. I started the home-buying process knowing absolutely nothing about real estate or short sales or even Sacramento, but Julie helped me find my dream home and she even made the whole process fun. Julie has the rare gift of being able to explain a convoluted and confusing process in a way that is clear, understandable and yet completely informative. She patiently answered every one of my questions, even when they were emailed out in a panic in the middle of the night. Very early on she understood exactly what I was looking for and made it easy on me by previewing homes and showing me only the ones she knew fit what I wanted and could afford. Julie helped me through the hard times of losing hope in finding the right home and she built me back up to face another round of home tours. She made home-buying fun, relaxed, easy-to-understand and accessible. And she never glossed anything over to make the sale--she was always honest about the advantages and drawbacks of every home. I never thought I would be able to own my home, but Julie McKechnie helped me not only find a home, but find the right home for me. The only bad part about finally buying my house is that I don't get emails and texts from Julie every day! I highly recommend Julie to anyone who wants a positive home-buying experience. I'll definitely send all of my friends to her to find their dream homes too! SARA FLOCKS, SACRAMENTO


Julie had originally done an appraisal of the house more than a year before I was actually ready to put it on the market. She was probably surprised when I told her I was ready to list it. It was my turn to be surprised when after telling her I was ready to list it on Tuesday it was photographed Thursday, had an open house Saturday and multiple offers on the following Tuesday. I accepted an above listing price offer, a week and a half later signed the final papers and escrow closed less than two weeks after that. It was less than a month from listing the house to close of escrow. You can't beat that. R.K., CARMICHAEL


The short sale process can be very intimidating and frustrating for many people. Julie really made the process run as smooth as it possibly could. She was there whenever I needed her for anything, she offered to help clean out the house, she made it easy to sign paperwork, she always let us know updates on our status. She was amazing!! Julie will be my go to agent from here on out!!! K.K., SACRAMENTO


You are truly one in a million within your industry; you were amazing through all of the process. BECKA C., NORTH HIGHLANDS


Thank you for taking care of our short sale. You will be our broker for life and we will refer anyone we know that needs to buy or sell.



We feel very fortunate that we met her while searching for homes. She has terrific knowledge of housing trends, pricing and all transaction particulars that helped make buying a home smooth and easy. She will be our broker for life. JON MAY, SACRAMENTO


I am happy the transaction was certainly a success. Julie was very patient throughout the process of looking at several properties. Julie provided good history on the properties and we are extremely happy with our purchase. Julie has continued to stay in contact providing additional information on available properties and we look forward to working with her on another property purchase. GEORGE H., CARMICHAEL
