She is One of the Worst People I Have Ever Met 5/15/2012

Julia Shildkret is one of the most greedy, evil people I have ever met in my life. I was in negotiations with her to become her office manager in April, 2006. Julia haggled with me over $5,000 in salary, while simultaneously showing me the $2,500 diamond bracelet she had just bought herself. She knew my son had been born with bilateral clubbed feet, and her comment to me was, ""You expect me to pay you more just because your baby was born with some little problem with his feet?"" She also expected me to work weekends for free until I was trained and officially hired. It was not just me that was being treated that way, she refused a day off for her assistant (Janelly) to study for her college finals and the poor girl was crying on my shoulder because she didn't know what she was going to do. If you want to do business with a person like this it's up to you, but by supporting her you're putting more of her horrible energy in the world. Run away as fast as you can! more

Best Real Estate company in Queens! 2/1/2012

Everyone in Queens knows Julia and her office, not only are they the best realtors in the neighborhood but they are also great people involved and helping the community. Everyone uses their truck as we always see it on the road! Every summer they give out ice-cream in Hollis Hills. My husband and I bought our house through them and couldn't have been happier. Our agent Lena spent months helping us find a house and held our hand until closing. The whole office was knowledgeable, polite, and patient. We highly recommend them! \r \r more

Great Real Estate Business 1/31/2012

We have known Julia for over 20 years. Over this period of time she build a terrific business serving people in her neighborhood. Lots of our friends used Julia's office services including the unique offering of the truck to move you to your new house. Julia's office is not just a real estate office but is also a great contributor to the life and well being of the area participating and sponsoring many events and charities. You will get"" the house of your dreams "" when you work with Julia and her team. more

Terrible Experience -- 1 star is generous! 12/28/2011

We found a house in which we were interested.\r We spoke to the listing agents (Debra Murray and Irene ).\r We told them we would have the agent we’d been working with contact them in order to continue the process.\r They begged us to let them represent us (so they wouldn't have to split the commission).\r They told us that if we did so, they would\r 1. Do everything they could to satisfy our needs.\r 2. Give us use of the company truck for our move.\r \r Neither one of these things happened.\r \r The sellers concealed from us a number of things that were broken (the house was so packed, even the inspector didn't see these things) and the agents were only too happy to assist in rushing us through to help ensure that we did not examine too thoroughly.\r \r They never conveyed our wishes to the sellers.\r Things that would have helped us a great deal and would not have caused the sellers any problem or cost them anything. But not having it done cost us money and a great deal of time.\r \r And they didn't even provide the truck for our move!\r \r I contacted Julia afterwards and asked to be reimbursed for our costs.\r She wrote me back a very obnoxious letter in which she stated:\r \r That loan of the truck was a courtesy, not a right.\r That the agents spent far more time with us than with other buyers.\r That we were the beneficiaries of money expended by her firm.\r \r Following are excerpts from my response \r \r As to how much time the agents spent with us vs. other buyers, I couldn't say.\r I would have to guess though that this too is inaccurate as we bought the only property they showed us.\r I would imagine that you have buyers who may look at a dozen properties before buying, don't you?\r But of course that is not relevant. The assertion that they ""bent over backwards to satisfy us"" is ridiculous.\r It was abundantly clear that they were taking the sellers' side all the way.\r \r Regarding your claims of financial concessions by your firm that benefited us:\r allow me to address the 3 you mentioned\r 1. Getting the sellers to leave us a stove.\r I've never even heard of this one before. There was never any issue regarding a stove.\r So, I don't know what you are talking about. Are you perhaps referring to the issue of the\r refrigerator? There were 2 refrigerators. We were initially lead to believe that both \r would stay.\r Not only did we not get 2, we didn't even get the better one of the 2. \r \r 2. The built-in cabinets in the 2nd bedroom.\r We do not believe for a minute the agents paid the sellers\r for them. Even Irene looked shocked when Debbie made this claim to us.\r The cabinets were in the contract. So, we were getting them.\r Neither we nor anyone else had to pay extra for them.\r \r 3. The sidewalk. Yes, your firm had this done. That's great.\r But please don't insult our intelligence by implying that it was some act of largess.\r It was a sticking point between us and the seller. And so, to speed up the process of getting \r a commission of tens of thousands of dollars, you invested a few hundred.\r That's just good business on your part. \r \r Julia, this was a horrible transaction from start to finish.\r The sellers' took advantage of us in every way (taking things that they weren't supposed to, trying to sell us things that were clearly included in the contract) and your agents tried to assist them in every way.\r The day we got the keys, we did a quick walk through and then Irene tried to get us to sign a document stating that everything was in fine shape and that the escrow money should be released.\r That is both totally unreasonable and totally biased! \r That is not good (or even fair) representation of our interests.\r \r 4,000 characters is not nearly enough to describe it all.\r But I wanted to put out there what I could to help people avoid getting cheated the way we did. more
