“Julie gets the job done. Many agents talk a good game; Julie produces results. Intelligent, well mannered, a model of efficiency and a pleasure to work with. She sold our condo on Newbury Street for a good amount and quickly. She stays on top of the market and works pro-actively. ”

“I have worked with Julie two times thus far and would do so again in a heartbeat; 100% outstanding job on meeting my needs and finding the perfect home in each instance. Making the decision to move from downtown, city living to the quiet suburbs can be a difficult jump and Julie made the transition for me very smooth.She had a genuine interest in finding the perfect fit for me and my family and went above and beyond what expectations I had; we are overjoyed with our home. Thank you so much for everything Julie!”

“Julie and her team made both finding and buying my condo and, years later, selling it very easy. They were so devoted! Julie really listened to what I wanted in a home and tailored everything she showed me. When it came time to sell I never even considered listing with anyone else. Julie found the perfect qualified buyer in 32 days in a very tough economy. She and her team held open houses every weekend. If I ever move back to Boston, Julie will be the first person I call! ”
Nancy J Glover


“Julie – Your expertise and attitude went a long way toward bringing our One Charles sale to closing. As a real estate veteran of over 40 years, I have never been through as long a negotiation with as many twists, including the addition of a “Buyer Broker” after multiple showings of the property, but through it all you kept everyone calm with open communication. Job well done! ”
Tom Nigrelli


“We would not be on our new home if it weren’t for Julie! What an amazing job she did. Not only in purchasing but selling as well. Her knowledge, guidance, and professionalism is top notch! I’d HIGHLY recommend her! Thanks for all your hard work Julie.”
Elizabeth and Terry O’Reilly


“The holidays are the perfect reminder of our memorable experience of working with Julie and Mary. It is incredible to recall that around Christmas, we started to see a sudden, substantial pickup in showings and had an offer in early January! Of course the following months of Covid – threw some curveballs, but because of Julie and Mary’s professionalism, we were able to complete the transaction. We will be spending the next several months here in Portsmouth finding our way around, learning about the community, and trying all of the interesting restaurants. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and hope you have great success and happiness in the New Year!”
Chris & Alice White


“This is my third time working with Julie to buy a property. Julie has so much patience! After many discussions about the type of property I am looking for, Julie will work endlessly to line up many listings for viewing. She makes the process an education with absolutely no pressure to rush into any decisions. She makes herself available all the time. Her knowledge of the real estate market is brilliant. I always trust her feedback when I finally find the property I like. I tell her all the time, ” You are the best!” By the way…You definitely want Julie on your side during the negotiations!!”

“Mary Conner was my agent for nearly six months. Her service to me, and her representation of Sotheby standards, was absolutely superb. I had emerged from a very difficult real estate situation and didn’t know where I wanted to live, and whether I wanted a house or a condo. I also had a very limited budget. Mary helped me make the decision of where to live, and how, over six months of painstaking work on my behalf. She found a beautiful seaside condo for me on Jerusalem Road (one of the most scenic roads on the South Shore) in an elegant Victorian mansion that was converted into condominiums. Not only is it charming and sophisticated, but the ocean view is exceptional. All of this for an astoundingly low price.She also linked me to a very good mortgage broker, whose staff and services were at par with Mary’s. She is a star, and I hope your firm gives her every opportunity to advance in a profession that she obviously loves, and in which she excels.”
Kathleen Reddy-Smith


“Words cannot truly express the appreciation we have for Mary Conner and her team. Mary makes the process of buying real estate as painless as possible. She is efficient, well versed, organized and a true advocate. She demonstrated tenacity on all issues all the way through to the closing. We highly recommend her and feel privileged to have worked with her.”

“I am very thankful for Mary’s vast knowledge of the Boston market. She was extremely professional throughout a difficult negotiation and settlement process handling all points with ease.

Julie knows her markets better than anyone, and she is a pleasure to work with. I can’t say enough about Julie – she is exceptional in every aspect. She is professional, thoughtful, patient and adds tremendous value in every situation. Julie goes way beyond all expectations to maximize every transaction. She is keenly focused on details, and she provides excellent feedback and advice. She is truly focused on her clients and believes in building long term relationships, always advising her clients in their best interest. Any time I know someone who may be looking to buy or sell in the area, I introduce them to Julie because I am so confident she will not disappoint, and everyone who works with her raves about what a great experience they had. There is no one I would rather work with than Julie.”

“Julie and Mary – Thank you all so much for everything! What a ride it was this fall/winter! As Jon mentioned we were very impressed with the traffic you brought in and appreciated all the little ways you helped us too (from assisting Elise and I in and out of the building with the stroller to being flexible around nap schedule and more!). You make a fantastic team and we very much enjoyed working with you. We will definitely be recommending you to any friends and family who are in the market. Thanks again for your top notch care in selling our home and for your kindness and warmth throughout the process.”

“We stumbled onto Mary by chance and couldn’t have been any luckier. She made navigating the incredibly competitive Boston market painless and helped us get a great deal on a home that has everything we were looking for. Everyone involved in the buying process – from our attorney, to the bank, to the seller – said she was an absolute professional and pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend Mary and her team to anyone looking to buy in the Boston area.”
Cameron Grant and Kim Nassif


“It has been a pleasure to work with Julie. Her depth of knowledge of the Boston condo market facilitated an efficient and productive process for our recent purchase. This was invaluable to us as we have very busy lives and could not dedicate a lot of time to finding the right property. I would recommend Julie and her team.”
Bill Partridge


“I have worked with the Julie Harrison Team for over 12 years while I was living in Boston. They have always been very professional and nice to deal with. Always very friendly to both my prospective buyers and other realtors in the Back Bay area. I would highly recommend them to future buyers. Thanks and all the best from London!”

“Mary helped us find our dream home – and within our budget! My favorite part about working with Mary is that she was not pushy, and really listened to what we wanted and were looking for. She actively sent us listings that she thought would pique our interest and acted quickly when we finally found the right spot. I would 100% recommend working with her when looking for your next home.”
Kerry Kerdeitzal


“As an attorney, working with a broker like Julie Harrison makes my life easier. She handles her business with professionalism and efficiency. But, what separates her from her competitors is the attention she pays to her clients. She always goes the extra mile for them. Her reputation is well earned, and I can’t recommend her enough.”

“In these complex real estate times, professional expertise and objectivity is critical to both the buying and the selling process and negotiations. Julie Harrison is just that advisor who we trust and rely on when making critical decisions and evaluating locations. Over the years, Julie helped us, initially as we transferred from out-of-state and then subsequently in settling in our present home and selling land. Julie’s sharp acumen when assessing and evaluating properties in both Boston and the surrounding suburbs is her strong suit and, as a result, she provides invaluable perspective to buying and selling decision making. When it comes to optimizing best real estate results, Julie Harrison is a leading executive who we would recommend over and over again.”

“Both of you have been so helpful through my 2-plus-year search for a new place. You have been so patient with me and made the whole process so easy. You took care of all the little details and I really didn’t have to think / worry about anything. Thanks so much!”
Jen Shin


“We really appreciated having Julie and Mary guide us with our move to Boston. They were professional, knowledgeable and patient. It allowed us to find our perfect home after many months of searching.“
Helene Keyzer


“As a real estate attorney and homeowner for the past 20 years I have always known the value of a good real estate broker. I am tied into the residential real estate world but recognize I do now know as much as realtors when it comes to values and the market trends. I am also a tough customer as far as expectations go and Julie and Mary were outstanding. I was undecided about whether I wanted to sell my unit and Julie kept me apprised of the market as it started changing on a monthly basis to the point where the market persuaded me to list – my comment to her before listing was “if you get me that price then I will sell”. Two weeks later Julie presented me with a full price offer. Months earlier I met with a few brokers, Julie and Mary were the only ones to follow up with me and it could not have worked out better. A more professional, responsive and friendly team you will not find.”
Evan M. Kushner, Esq. – Kushner & Marano, P.C.


“Julie followed through on everything. She went the extra mile and it showed, right down to baking cookies during the open house! I will absolutely choose Julie again, and again. She will be highly recommended to anyone requiring real estate services.”
Michael Patti


“I have been working with Julie for seventeen years and would not be able to run my business without her. I have purchased and sold many properties with Julie through the years and she has never failed to impress me with her wonderful disposition and great efficiency. She makes everything so easy! I let her know what I’m looking for and she always makes it happen. Her extensive knowledge and attention to detail saves time and makes all our transactions run as smoothly as possible. It is truly a pleasure working with her. “
Maria Glavas


“Julie and her team were a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and always available to me. She helped me purchase my first home and I will gladly recommend her to any others out there. As a first time buyer the process can be quite intimidating but I was so happy to have their help. “
Rajan Chahal


“Steve and I worked with Julie Harrison’s Team after a pleasant exchange with Mary during an open house. As we continued to look at houses, Mary listened with interest and intent to find the house that “checked all the boxes” in very short order during a rather tough market. She worked through the offer, negotiations and settlement process with diligence, ensuring all our questions were addressed. Julie’s team clearly puts an emphasis on friendly, action oriented service!”
Carol & Steve Carlson


“Julie, thanks for such a successful marketing and sales process of our very special home! We so enjoyed working with you – your ability to focus on getting the home marketed to the right audience was very helpful in the sales process.”
