JULIE ELIZABETH COHEN, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
EXPERIENCE: Julie's career at Brooklyn Heights Real Estate began when the firm first opened in Brooklyn Heights on Montague Street in 1995. BHRE established itself at this time as a boutique real estate firm specializing in Brownstone Brooklyn. Julie has consistently been ranked as the top producer at the firm and her strong performance has contributed greatly to the firm’s growth and its ability to thrive and maintain its independence throughout a period that has seen tremendous consolidation.
Julie combines extensive professional experience and a comprehensive knowledge of the Brooklyn marketplace. She provides a truly exceptional level of service to each and every client and customer she represents. Her ability to work with both buyers and sellers has made her an unparalleled resource for those making a move. Included among the 500 plus real estate transactions that Julie has executed over the past 21 years are the sales of townhouses, mixed-use buildings, condominiums, co-ops and new development sales.
Julie is active in the rental market as well. She has access to select luxury rental buildings and commercial leasing opportunities. Julie has experience working with relocation firms and represents many customers as their tenant broker. Julie believes hard work and relentless professionalism combined with a low-pressure approach is what sets her apart from other brokers.
Julie’s growing client base stems from her active networking, collaboration with peers, and referrals. Julie’s clients and customers say that she consistently delivers results that exceed their expectations. A skilled and proven negotiator and keen listener, she is able to navigate her clients and customers through the complicated process of the real estate transaction.
Julie oversaw an extensive renovation of her loft in Cobble Hill and has sold many buildings and apartments that have required renovations themselves. Apart from the standard real estate network of vetted attorneys, architects, interior designers, landscape architects, general contractors, inspectors, investors and the like, Julie is able to draw upon a vast well of artistic and creative experience. She can happily provide advice to those buyers seeking properties that need renovations.
All those that work with Julie know that she is a capable and personable partner. Not only has Julie proven herself a successful real estate broker in Brooklyn, Julie grew up in the business. Her father was a respected real estate broker in nearby Connecticut and she embraces the same values that sustained him throughout his 50 year career. Julie serves as a board member at her condo, is involved with the local community, and is an avid bike rider. As a proud “Brooklynite” and “Brooklyn lifestyle expert”, Julie gives all new arrivals a unique insight on Brooklyn living. Beyond her extraordinary range of professional services, Julie knows the best restaurants, cultural attractions, music venues, art openings, green markets, specialty shops, and all things uniquely Brooklyn.
