Cherilyn has worked in diverse sectors of the real estate market including residential rentals, sales, investment properties and multi-family homes. She's focused extensively on the Upper East and Upper West Sides in Manhattan, and now specializes in Brooklyn neighborhoods.

"No business is too great or too small. Whatever it takes, you can count on me to get the job done."

“I just had to take the time to write to thank you for all the time and research you went through to find us the best place suitable for our family's needs and in our price range. We had other realtors but none were there for us they way you were. LIving in Minnesota and doing this long distance was very difficult, but you made the process go smooth and easy. Cherilyn, I would highly recommend you to my familly, friends and colleagues. ”

“Cherilyn Julien is our family realtor! She has found three absolutely wonderful New York apartments for us in the last five years and helped us to secure our leases quickly. I first needed an apartment in the West Village and had been searching online when I found her. She struck me as very pleasant to work with but also highly competent. And, sure enough, she found a charming studio apartment I hadn't seen and it was the perfect location, two blocks from the remodel I was working on. She then found my daughter, a student at NYU, an apartment she loved in the East Village. And a few years later, she just found our son his first apartment in Brooklyn. Both my kids liked working with her and also found her very hard working and time efficient. We all loved living in our apartments, felt lucky to have her help and highly recommend her!

—Kathleen Hughes, March 26, 2017 
“They say third time is the charm. After dreading moving for a third time, we had the pleasure of having Ms. Cherilyn Julien assist us in finding a new home. Cherilyn stood out as one of the best realtors we have ever dealt with. She was very knowledgeable, patient and professional. She facilitated the entire process from the showing to the lease signing flawlessly. She was very responsive to all of our questions and very patient with us as well. If you are looking for an honest, reliable realtor, then please contact Cherilyn. You won't be disappointed!

“I am writing to describe my experience working with Cherilyn Julien, my broker who helped find me my apartment at 306 East 93rd. My apartment search required a very specific criteria, and a tremendous amount of attention to detail. I required a specific neighborhood, a very specific budget, a service dog friendly apartment, and needed to complete and submit much of my paperwork from California. Cherilyn was so dedicated to helping me find exactly what I needed even after running into multiple roadblocks which were out of our control. Seeing how she dealt with difficult personalities and situations and in the end found me an ideal home shows me the excellent quality broker and person that she is. I will definitely be seeking her as my broker any time that I need to move, and found it necessary to comment on how lucky CCRNY is to have her. Thank you Cherilyn for your amazing work!

“In my attempts to find an apartment in Brooklyn for my family and myself I've had to deal with quite a few brokers. There were a handful who were terribly unprofessional. Needless to say the process was becoming quite frustrating. But when Cherilyn stated that she could help me relieve some of that frustration, I was totally convinced that I could put my absolute trust in her. Not only does Cherilyn have the patience of a saint. But her professionalism and calm demeanor speaks volumes about her personality. She was always available; responding to my texts and calls promptly. Cherilyn worked tirelessly to help my family and I find our ideal apartment. She even followed up after our move to check in and see if we were doing okay. I would definitely use Cherilyn as my agent again if needed. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a qualified broker.

—Sonia Edghill, February 28, 2017 
“This was the easiest move I've ever done because of Cherilyn's help. After living in the best apartment I've ever lived in that she found for me a year ago, I asked for her help again and she has found me another great place in Manhattan in just a few days. Cherilyn has always been reliable, trustworthy, and very easy and quick to communicate with. I would definitely recommend her services!

—Sean Hickey, November 9, 2016 
“Being new to New York, it was important that I could work with someone who I could trust, to find me the best value Manhattan rental property in a timely manner. I was fortunate enough to work with Cherilyn, who quickly helped me locate the perfect apartment, in the right location and at the right price. I highly recommend her professionalism and knowledge of the Real Estate Rental market in New York and would suggest other working with her in the future.

—David McGrath 
“I cannot recommend Cherilyn Julien highly enough if you are on the market for an apartment in the New York area. My fiancee and I worked with Cherilyn to find our new apartment in Brooklyn in the spring of 2016, and she was nothing short of exceptional. She understood our needs, was quick to respond to any questions that arose, and helped us navigate a complicated close process with ease. Finding a new apartment in New York can be a nightmare, but Cherilyn made it as smooth as possible. She has my absolute highest endorsement.

—Charlie Flick, July 5, 2016 
“Hardworking, patient, determined and extremely helpful are a few words that come to mind when I think about my broker Cherilyn Julien. Whether it means taking me to see apartments multiple days in a row, or staying up till midnight helping me gather all my tax information, Cherilyn never stops! Not only was she extremely patient and kind to me during my first experience looking at apartments in New York, but she has given me tons of wisdom about the entire rental experience and living on my own for the first time! Not to mention that she helped me find the impossible - a reasonably priced studio in Cobble Hill! I will recommend Cherilyn as a broker to all of my friends and coworkers, and if there was a Broker of the Year award, I would nominate her because I was that blown away by her extraordinary abilities at what she does!

—Caelan, April 15, 2016 
“I have worked with Cherilyn to find three different apartments in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and each time I worked with her I found her to be incredibly receptive to my tastes and preferences, hard working, responsive, and professional. Moving is very stressful, but Cherilyn always made the process as easy and uncomplicated as possible. With every new move, she has helped me find the perfect apartment for my needs in a location that I love. I can't recommend her more highly.

—Emily Romeyn 
“Cherilyn Julien helped us to find a one bedroom condo apartment with a kitchen suitable for a cooking enthusiast, in New York City. We had never entered this market before, and despite our best efforts to research it, we found it all daunting. We could only visit once every month or so, yet we hoped to solve this challenge within a few months. Cherilyn is energetic and focused. She kept us informed of prospects and options, sending us batches of listings regularly, so that we would learn about the market. Each time we came, we quickly saw about ten places. Cherilyn probably figured out way before we did that our initial ideas about the trade-offs between price and space and location were not realistic, but allowed us to convince ourselves. When we changed our focus from the East Village to Fort Greene and surrounding areas in Brooklyn, she was immediately ready with a range of new options. In fact, her knowledge of Brooklyn is particularly impressive. We have ended up with a lovely condo on a beautiful street in Fort Greene, with many conveniences nearby. It was pleasant to spend time with Cherilyn. She is both warm and professional.

“I wanted to share my experience with you and thank you for all your help. You were very professional and did a great job at getting me a qualified renter for my home in just a few days. You made me feel very comfortable; you advised but didn't push. I will recommend you to anyone looking for help where Real Estate is concerned. Thank you once again.

—Lisa Duke 
“While I ended up going with an apartment that an old landlord offered, I wanted to convey my gratitude at this hard-working broker. She was almost hard to keep up with as she was trying to show me as much as I wanted in my price range. She's super knowledgeable about the areas, the market and is willing to work her hardest to get you the place you're looking for, and is not afraid to tell you if you need to go higher in rent or look at other places. She was a tremendous help and I know anybody who is suspect of brokers out there can rest assured she's trustworthy and hard-working. If I didn't get a deal on a different place, my 2nd and 3rd options were ones that she lined up for me. Thank you Cherilyn!

“Greetings David, from a hot and steamy Sydney, Australia. My name is Steven Fuller. I am immigrating to the US and shall be living in NYC. I feel the need to put pen to paper and reach out to you regarding the outstanding services provided by Cherilyn Julien. In October last year, I contacted Cherilyn to assist both myself and my partner Phillip Parker to represent us in the "tough, complex and competitive" New York Real Estate market as we search for our first home in NYC. We have bought and sold property many times over, across the globe. We have dealt with many realtors throughout - some good, some woeful but NONE, I repeat NONE offering the outstanding SERVICE DELIVERY and EMPATHY as that which has been provided by Cherilyn Julien. This email is a LETTER OF THE HIGHEST COMMENDATION for Cherilyn. As an international buyer, Cherilyn understands the 'barriers and challenges' and goes above and beyond to knock them down. In short, 'She gets it'! I note that Cherilyn has not made one single dime from us, as yet. She will, assuredly. In late 2012, I was inundated by Realtors in 2012 from NYC and have dismissed each and every one of them - Why? Simply because they fell way short on Cherilyn's integrity, passion for the business and preparedness to go above and beyond to deliver quality services. They had no clue as to the needs of a buyer on the opposite side of the globe. Please pass on our sincerest CONGRATULATIONS to Cherilyn and our heartfelt thanks. Warmest personal regards, Steven

“Just a quick note of thanks for finding me my apartment on Sidney Place...I'm loving it here, you made this seem so easy, you made this a good experience, I will certainly be referring you to anyone who is looking. Hoping all is well for you.

—Andy Grover 
“A thank you note is the least we could do after all of the assistance you provided for us when we truly needed it. You're just wonderful and we are oh so happy with this apartment. I hope you had a spectacular Thanksgiving, and I wish you an even more extraordinary holiday as well! We love you Cheri!

“Jenna asked me to send you a King cake. We are all grateful for your help in finding Jenna a place to live and your patience with walking us through the paperwork. I also appreciate all the other advice you have given us. You have gone above and beyond the duties of your job description.

—Trish Nunmaker
