TESTIMONIALS

"Julie is the most ethical, honest, straight forward individual, and can give good news or bad news with no variation in professionalism. I have been a vendor serving multifamily as well as HOA's and Commercial properties for 15 years and rarely in all that time have I met or had the opportunity to work with the caliber of individual I see in Julie Blank. I have only been working with her for 4 years serving the portfolio she manages but I can say in that time I have developed a deep respect for her. She is so confident and her entire team praises her and claims how great she is to work with. I believe it is due to her experience and tenure that gives her the ability to empower her team while still remaining in control for the best possible outcome. Under her direction one of her properties located in Tustin won a GEMM award through the California Apartment Association which is quite a piece of recognition for her and her team there. One of the qualities I respect the most in working with Julie is the level of integrity that I see. I can honestly say without question I have never heard one single negative word spoken about her in the time we have worked together and that no one has ever even implied that she is anything but a stand up person. How she manages to get it all done with the work/family balance is yet another testament to her character." - Rich, Vendor Relations

"I don't even know where to start with Julie. Everyone loves Julie. She's got charm, wit, and is incredibly smart. She's analytical and can think 50 steps ahead of most people. She's a great leader and continues to serve as a mentor even though I went into a different industry. She's always been supportive and is a great listener who usually had a solution in her back pocket just for you.

Julie knows how to get you where you want and need to be without the bull. I can consult with her on just about everything. She's amazing and I can't envision a place where Julie Blank doesn't succeed." - Asenath, Direct Report

"I worked with Julie in the capacity of HR support for over four years and have never met a woman in leadership as self-assured, fair, and fearless as her. I've seen her lead and inspire people at all levels, with a vast array of challenges.  She is both analytical and altruistic; her approach involves honest insight and realistic encouragement that allows people to take accountability for their own growth. Julie's ability to identify strengths and gaps make her a truly unique, trusted resource for emerging leaders." - Jessica, Human Resources

"I've known and worked with Julie for approximately 6 years. I can honestly say that over the years I've learned a lot from her. In my career it's been rare to work for someone that consistently demonstrates professionalism, strong leadership and while still being personable when it counted. One of the greatest lessons I've learned from her is how to try to maintain a balance between work and personal life. During a manager's conference in 2013 she created a presentation about this with the emphasis on women. The message and delivery was effective and inspiring. During the presentation it was amazing to hear how many of the women in the audience were positively impacted by her presentation. I'm proud to know Julie and to have had the opportunity to work for her. She's been an important part of my professional career growth." - Irene, Direct Report

"Julie and I have never worked ‘together’ but have enjoyed parallel career paths… similar jobs, different backgrounds.  I know her mostly through our involvement in CAASC.  She is smart and engaging and the type of person that you just want to sit and speak with.   She is the consummate professional and has built a team around her of like-minded individuals who are top notch in their field." - Rick, Industry Colleague

"I just really can’t say enough good things about Julie. She is one of the best bosses and leaders I have ever worked for.  She is definitely a leader by example, thorough and very dedicated when it comes to her job and her responsibilities. I have never enjoyed working for someone as much as I have enjoyed working for her. She is the type of person who actually makes you want you raise the bar on yourself without her needing to even ask you to do it, you just watch the way she works and she makes you want to be a better person and a better worker. I really can’t say enough good things about her.  She is a great person!" - Brianna, Executive Assistant

"Julie is truly a remarkable person and leader. She always amazes me with her cool and calculated insight to any issue I bring her. She is incredibly sharp, quick witted but is down to earth. I never feel uncomfortable or intimidated by her and she is never judgmental. I am always impressed with her patience and genuine care for the people she works with. Julie is the rarest of leaders, truly courageous and selfless leadership." - Dan, Direct Report  

"I have worked with Julie since 2009 and in that time she has helped me grow both personally and professionally. Professionally, Julie has always been respectful and responsive whenever I have approached her with any questions. She sees these moments as a time to help me further my professional skills both for the current task at hand but also for any future opportunities that may arise. She has also become a close confidant over the years. She has been one that I have been able to celebrate the good times, but also been there during times of sadness and struggle. Julie has truly become someone I have looked up to both professionally and personally and look forward to working with her for years to come." - Stacey, Co-Worker

"I have had the privilege of getting to know Julie Blank over the past 5yrs through many projects that we have worked on together. To be honest, she is incredible at everything she does, which makes it extremely difficult to keep this testimonial letter on point.

Julie encompasses everything one should look for in a friend and a business partner. She not only has a kind, genuine soul, but also has the tenacity of a shark and business savviness to supervise projects, close deals, consult and manage companies/people to help them with the 1% needed to set them apart from the competition.

I never write testimonial letters unless I truly mean it. In this case, I have never been more excited and honored to give my highest praise to Julie Blank – she will never let you down." - Ryan, Vendor Relations

"Working with Julie Blank has been by far the most enriching experience I’ve had in my career. Not only does she lead by excellent example, she inspires you to be the best you can be! She motivates and guides her employees with care and builds you up. She is very intuitive to the needs of her team and always has a proactive approach. Working with this type of leader encourages you to imitate all those positive qualities and instill them in your team in turn. I was able to gain confidence in my abilities that I did not know I had thanks to Julie and I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from such a hardworking, dedicated, passionate individual such as herself." - Larissa, Direct Report

Julie is a dynamic, strong-willed, and results driven individual. She will stand out in any organization as a true leader, not only for her vast knowledge and experience, but namely for the consistent exceptional results she delivers. Julie has an intellectual and intuitive understanding for managing projects and teams. She delivers flawless results in high demanding and fast paced landscapes, no matter what the scope of the work may be. Her strengths in process management and efficiency surpass anyone else I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Julie Blank for any company or organization looking for a resilient and compassionate leader, whose precision to excellence will strengthen and empower those around her." - Gilbert, Direct Report  

"I have worked with Julie and directly under her supervision.  100% of the time she is very clear in her ability to define and share her goals and objectives. She communicates clearly and has a unique ability to capture the interest of those she is working with that is extremely motivating. Her ability to capture people's attention is unparalleled within an organization. She is very easy to communicate with, a pleasure to work with and fantastic at getting the work done that is needed. She has an ability to relate to you and make you feel like a partner regardless of your position within a company." - Ernie, Co-Worker
