About The Ouellette Team:
We are a high energy, detailed oriented, customer service based team. Our clients become part of our real estate family once our transaction is closed and we will always be available to answer questions and assist with any real estate needs.
We are passionate about helping first time buyers achieve the dream of home ownership and have a special booklet we created as a resource. We have also helped many clients sell and buy a new property, including income property, and are specialists in relocation. We understand the various loan programs and pride ourselves in helping our clients through the maze of paperwork involved in a real estate transaction. We are enthusiastic supporters of the Coastal Housing Partnership and have successfully assisted clients from numerous member employers over the years.
Julie has been a resident of Santa Barbara since 1972. She graduated from UCSB with her B.A. in 1974 and her M.A. in 1977. She is proud to celebrate her 35th year in real estate in 2022, and was joined by her daughter-in-law April in 2017, and her son Nick in 2022. The Ouellette Team is committed to providing exceptional service to guarantee successful transactions and happy clients!
Julie is a dedicated, personable & highly skilled agent. Since our first meeting over a year ago, Julie has continually gone “above & beyond”. She toured Santa Barbara with us prior to my husband even accepting his new position at Cottage Hospital & really helped us get comfortable with the city. She readily shared her wealth of knowledge about Santa Barbara, the events & traditions that make it special, and its many nuanced micro-neighborhoods.
Julie demystified the SB housing scene & made purchasing in a high-priced market less daunting. She was patient, thorough, & always worked to answer all of our *many* detailed questions. After accepting the position & renting here for a year we started house hunting in earnest. Julie was incredibly responsive, informative & helpful. She knows this city through & through and it shows.
When it came time to make an offer she was a fantastic advocate during our (sometimes tough) negotiations. She helped us line up the specialists we needed to inspect & assess our house to ensure we had as much information as possible prior to closing. She always represented our interests rigorously & professionally and has earned our complete trust & admiration.
We now consider Julie a close friend of the family. We couldn’t be happier with our choice in choosing her as our Real Estate Agent, and gladly share this testimonial. Thank you Julie!! Marc and Denise Dailey (Cottage Health)
Julie came highly recommended for going above and beyond what any other broker would do and my colleagues have worked with her on numerous purchases over the years. She thought of everything I would need to do to be happy in my home and helped arrange repairs and contractors with wonderful reputations so I was always in good hands. Her knowledge, patience, and generosity are unparalleled! Kate Oberjat (Music Academy of the West)
Julie was amazing. Her professionalism and knowledge of the market was second to none. I couldn’t recommend her more from a first time buyer to a seasoned home buyer. Andy and Jennifer McBride (Procore)
Julie came highly recommended and now we know why. Searching for a house is a stressful process, especially when you live on the other side of the country. Julie was always on top of everything and made sure to stay two steps ahead. Julie was very easy to work with and was extremely knowledgeable. We would work with her again in a heartbeat. We appreciate the extra calls she made, the extra trips she took. Her support was immeasurable. Casey & David Molino Dunn (Music Academy of the West)
We could not have done this transaction without Julie. She is the ultimate real estate professional! Her attention to detail is superb, and she does a terrific job of acting as her clients’ advocate. Nolan Schneiderman & Tiffany Alberts (Appfolio)
