Judy Has Many Strengths as a Professional Realtor


Judy Has Many Strengths as a Professional Realtor

I have had the pleasure of working with Judy Hart Perrault over the last few years on several real estate transactions. Specifically, she represented me as listing agent on two sales, both of which were closed expeditiously and two purchases, in which she helped me tremendously in effectuating very satisfactory closings.

As my listing agent, Judy thoroughly researched the relevant market and comparative prices and made informed and well –reasoned recommendations on setting prices. In each case, offers were received shortly after listing. In one case I received a full price cash offer which closed smoothly within thirty days of acceptance. In the other case, the listing generated multiple counteroffers from several qualified purchasers and the accepted offer proceeded to closing with no significant issues. I was happy with the price received from the sale in both cases, as well as the guidance and transaction management Judy provided throughout the process.

Judy has also assisted me periodically in viewing and evaluating properties for purchase. Again, she knows her market and comparative prices very well. She is very responsive to questions concerning specific properties and when a decision was made to make an offer on a particular property, Judy prepared meticulous purchase agreements and supporting documentation. Once the offers were accepted and the properties were in escrow she worked diligently to assist with all inspections and other work required during the due diligence periods, consistently responsive to all my concerns during that period. Judy also was very effective with sellers in these cases in assisting to resolve any disputes that came up between the sellers and me.

Overall, I would say that Judy has many strengths as a professional realtor of which I have been most appreciative in buying and selling property. She is knowledgeable and thoroughly informed about the real estate market and current market conditions, including comparative prices, and she keeps apprised of new properties coming on the market as well as properties sold. She is very well prepared in identifying and showing potential properties for purchase and her attention to detail in her documentation and assistance with due diligence and closing procedures is excellent. She is easy going but tough when she needs to be. At the risk of repeating her motto, I would have to say that Judy truly obtains results with integrity.

Seasoned Real Estate Professional

Judy has helped my family buy our home and an investment property and has helped us sell two homes. In each instance she went the extra mile, from listening to our goals closely, doing her homework on comparable homes, pre​-scouting her recommendations, and guiding us through the paperwork and disclosures. She is a seasoned real estate professional with broad knowledge of the local market who has demonstrated ​her tenacity and success ​over and over again, rolling up her sleeves and working hard to make our famil​y's​ goals become a reality.

​We have also happily referred her to numerous friends and colleagues, all of whom were delighted with their results and who have gone on to recommend her to others.

Intelligent & Savvy Agent

I would like to take this opportunity to extend our gratitude for the excellent work that you provided for me and my family in both the sale of our previous home and in the purchase of our current home, both in San Clemente, California. As you will recall, the process was complicated in that we were proposing to purchase a short sale, contingent on the sale of our home. As you explained to us, the banks generally avoid such transactions as the contingency can delay and complicate the transaction for the purchase of the short sale. They prefer cash or prequalified buyers without contingencies. With your assistance, we were able to find the right buyer for our home and satisfy the needs of the bank involved with the short sale to enable us to make the purchase of what has become the perfect home for our family. You were instrumental in making this happen. The transaction included the third time I had sold a home and fourth time I had purchased one. In my experience with real estate transactions it is critical to have an intelligent and savvy agent representing you. You have been that for us. You were able to anticipate the bank moves and those of our buyers so that we were prepared and appropriately positioned at every turn. We will definitely use your services again should we find the need to sell our home and will continue to refer our friends and family to you.

Experienced, Knowledgeable & Client-Focused Agent

Judy recently represented us in connection with the purchase of our first home, and we’d highly recommend her to anybody looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, and client-focused real estate agent.

Not only was Judy extremely communicative, responsive, and patient with our (many!) questions, but she also frequently made the extra effort to ensure our needs and concerns were met promptly to the best of her ability. Judy truly provided significant support throughout the entire purchasing process – she assisted with market research, offered numerous insightful suggestions, connected us with qualified inspectors, and did a great job of keeping many different pieces moving in the right direction to meet our deadlines.

Among Judy’s many strengths, those that stood out to us the most were her communication skills, attention to detail, and client-focused approach to her craft. Her knowledge and experience were also critically important for us as first-time home buyers.

La Jolla to Dana Point Coastal Areas

My wife and I were looking for a second home in Southern California, not really knowing precisely where we wanted to be. Judy took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a home. She was excellent at finding properties for us to look at that met our needs, and demonstrated great knowledge of the La Jolla to Dana Point coastal area in particular. With her guidance and patience - it took us three years to decide - we found the place of our dreams. I would highly recommend Judy to anyone.

She is Totally Committed

We have known Judy for almost 8 years, having met her through a good friend. We were thinking of a winter home in San Clemente at the time and Judy found us the perfect place. Finding it was the easiest part for Judy; doing the deal is where her experience and expertise really came through for us, as everything that could go wrong did go wrong; mold, termites, deck rebuild and a very difficult seller. Judy became our favorite realtor and a great friend, and when it was time for our son to buy his first home, Judy came through again with the perfect home at the right price. We can’t recommend Judy any higher. She is hardworking, smart, of the highest integrity and totally committed to her profession.

We Highly Recommend Judy

My husband and I were contemplating downsizing to a smaller home. We started looking in a neighborhood of townhomes with amazing ocean views. We loved the area but there were certain drawbacks that were holding us back. We went to an open house in the neighborhood and that is where we met Judy Hart Perrault. She had a listing in the neighborhood and knew so much about the area and what kinds of modifications could be done to the townhomes. Suddenly we had a whole new perspective on the neighborhood and our eyes were open to new possibilities.

Judy was warm and kind and didn't seem pushy like most agents we had met with. We liked Judy so much that we asked her to be our agent for both the purchase of our new home and for the sale of our existing home.

Judy was so well informed about the rules and regulations of real estate and really used that knowledge to help us purchase our new home. The seller's agent was extremely difficult to work with and did not know some of the basic rules of a real estate deal. Judy stood up for us and made sure that the deal was done properly and limited our interactions with the seller's agent, thereby eliminating much of the stress.

In the sale of our existing home, Judy worked really hard for us and was determined to get us the best price possible. In the end, we sold our home at a price we felt comfortable with and again Judy's knowledge of the rules of real estate saved us time and money overall.

We would highly recommend Judy Hart Perrault based on her experience and knowledge in the real estate business. She is very professional and will work hard for you every step of the way.

Judy Vigorously Represented Our Interests

Judy Hart Perrault represented us in the purchase of a property in San Clemente, California. Over the years, we have bought and sold many properties. This transaction was by far the most difficult and complex of any we had been involved with. It could not have been concluded successfully, as it was, without the professionalism, diligence, sheer hard work and ability Judy brought to the table. She vigorously represented our interests at every turn, bringing her knowledge, experience and creativity to bear in resolving the numerous issues that arose throughout this deal. Judy is the consummate realtor—knowledgeable, organized, thorough, business-minded, responsive and hard-working. She keeps you informed throughout the transaction and is a pleasure to work with. She will always “go the extra mile.” We recommend her enthusiastically and without reservation.

She Surpassed Our Every Expectation!

I wanted to write a letter of recommendation for our realtor, Judy Hart Perrault. We purchased a duplex in San Clemente that we rented out for a few years.

We completed a legal conversion of the duplex into two condos and one of our tenants moved out. We hired Judy as our realtor and we walked the property with her. Judy suggested we do some work on the place to maximize its value. She even helped us find someone to assist us in getting the work done.

Once we completed the renovation, Judy worked tirelessly on our behalf to sell the condo!! We are real estate investors and it was the trickiest project we have ever done because of the condo conversion. Judy again went above and beyond to get us through the escrow seamlessly!!

Once our tenant moved out of the second condo, we again asked for Judy’s help. She got us an offer the very first day that our unit was on the market! We closed the transaction with that party and have been beyond thrilled with Judy’s representation!!

She surpassed our every expectation!!

Please feel free to contact me for further feedback on Judy Hart Perrault. My call phone is 858-204-2778.

Thank You.

Just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you did in selling our home. You made it go so smoothly. Moving is stressful enough without worrying about all the things that could go wrong. You stayed on top of everything, answered any questions that we had, made sure all the paper work was done correctly, and went out of your way to make sure we had all the exposure needed to sell our home. I have heard many horror stories concerning the sale of people’s homes and I was not worried at all with you in charge. I recommend you to anyone selling their home. Keep up the good work.

Thanks again so much,

M. & L. Crist

Professional and Hard-Working

Judy Hart Perrault sold our San Clemente home (in four weeks in a down market!) and found us our dream home in Vista 2 weeks later.

She was the most professional and hard-working agent with whom we have ever worked.

Judy was relentless in getting our house sold, compassionate when needed, and aggressive when appropriate. She was instrumental in arriving at the right asking price which resulted in a sales price which made us very happy.

We always felt we were in the best hands possible and that Judy always had our best interests in mind.

She’s the absolute best!

She is the Complete Package

So you have decided to move!?

Amy and I took the "leap" to move a few years ago after having "nested in" for 24 years. Judy was our choice for professional assistance in this "change of life" for numerous reasons. Being professionals ourselves, and having lived in the same town all our lives, we could wallpaper a small room with the realtors’ cards that have been presented to us over the years, many of these people we have known since childhood. In short, Judy has it all! She is the most complete package of intelligence, wisdom, style, compassion, personality, art, and business acumen. Her background in the film industry is maximized in her ability to present your home/property in its best light. The ads and photos she developed of our property made me wonder why anyone would move from such a marvelous setting! We know Judy's phone number by heart! She, without faltering, was available for questions, counsel, or just communication more than anyone I have worked with in the past. We will be moving again in a couple of years into semi-retirement. We look forward to working with Judy again when that time comes.

Our Best Interest Was Represented

We wanted to take a moment and thank you personally for all your hard work and dedication. In this competitive market, finding the right home proved challenging; however, your persistence and knowledge of the community located the perfect fit. Our new home in San Clemente, is not only everything we hoped our first home would be, it’s more.

During the search process, your patience and respect of our time was invaluable. You always had a detailed agenda of homes to review, route details, and market comparisons. As a result, we were able to evaluate homes quickly with all the facts necessary to make a decision.

In addition, we appreciate your attention to detail through the contract negotiations. You ensured every aspect and point of the contract was not only negotiated, but that each obligation was fulfilled by the seller. Every t was crossed, every i dotted, and our best interest was represented time and time again.

Thank you again for all of your hard work.

Had Our Best Interest In Mind

My wife and I would like to thank you so much for helping us find our new home.
We had such a great experience with finding and purchasing our home, we can’t believe
how simple you made it for us. Even though we were moving from Sacramento, you
made finding the right home so easy. We feel like you were more friend than realtor
throughout the whole process. We never felt pressured and always knew you had our
best interest in mind.
Thank you again for everything!

We Needed A Knowledgeable Real Estate Expert

Because of our recent experience with our realtor, Judy Hart Perrault, we'd like to give a testimonial to her. After residing in our home for 42 years we were ready to relocate and downsize. One of our first concerns was to find a realtor with a very good reputation, lots of patience and who would be understanding of the fact that this was a very emotional but exciting move for us. We needed a knowledgeable real estate expert to help us sell our home and find a new home to move to.   Also, we were deciding whether to buy or lease a home making the move much more time consuming and complicated. We found the answers to these concerns when we found Judy who was highly recommended by our daughter who is a previous client of Judy's. We immediately realized that Judy was extremely thorough and she stayed in touch almost daily to answer our questions. When she put the whole package together it was expedited with every detail complete and final. Happily, she has become a friend of our family and has stayed in touch with us. We know we can call on her even now for any help, any time.

Thank you Judy! Will and Ardy Radig
