About Judy
Though originally from New York City, I have lived in Knoxville for over 35 years. Previously, I volunteered and worked for several non-profit agencies in the community as a puppeteer with the Kids On The Block program in the public schools. After raising two daughters with my husband, a clinical psychologist, I embarked on my real estate career in 1997. I continue to strive towards providing excellent service and up to date knowledge through educational courses. 
My love of travel has taken me to Chile, Israel, South Africa, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Austria, France, Portugal, and Costa Rica and I enjoy working with international families. Having purchased several homes myself, I am sensitive to the stress of buying and selling a home. I work diligently to provide personal service and ensure a pleasant, calm, and professional experience for all my clients.

What my clients are saying (12)

One day my family was looking for houses because we are moving. I was going to meet my realtor. She was so nice! When we got to the first house it was as hot as a desert. When we got to the next house it was sooooooo pretty! My mom agreed 100 percent my dad agreed too. Then we went to Chick Fil A for lunch and a potty break. I ate as fast as a dinosaur eating meat. Then we went to another house. My sister was saying to my mom mommy can we leave? But my mom said no so I played with my sister. I played tag it was really fun! Finally it was time to go. I gave my realtor a big hug and said bye. Searching for houses is fun with family!

We wanted to thank you so much for your time & patience during our home search. You worked so hard on our behalf & we greatly appreciate it. We also want to thank you for the lovely bird feeder as well as the girls' game. I'm so happy to have met you not only because you found us a beautiful home but also because you're a beautiful person inside and out. I hope we continue to grow our friendship! With love,

10/06/2016 - Betty

I just want to say thank you for representing me with the home sale. I knew I was in very good hands.
Both Stan and I always liked your thought on the houses we looked at over two years ago. I consider you a true friend and an excellent real estate agent.

10/06/2016 - Betty, Jimmy & Ally McFaden

Per your request dated August 7, 2002 we are happy to provide a letter of recommendation for Judy Brietstein.
She was very pleasant, helpful and professional. We also feel that she is an honest person. Our past experiences with realtors have had a lot to be desired. That outlook has changed because of Judy. She is a breath of fresh air. Thanks to her, the sale of our home was a pleasant event. Judy saw to it that things went smoothly. We never felt out of touch or uninformed.
She is a credit to her profession and a huge asset to your company. Should we or anyone we know need help, we certainly know who to call.

10/06/2016 - Tom Leavy

We were thrilled with Judy's level of service. She did a great job walking us through the process. I will always use Judy if possible. We also intend to refer her to our friends and family. Judy has continued to be very supportive, long after the sale.

10/06/2016 - Joan C. Gideon

I would like to commend one of your realtors, Judy Brietstien who recently assisted me in the purchase of my new home. Judy helped me narrow down my choices and define what I wanted and could afford in a home. She worked diligently to show me as many houses as I wanted over several months. I felt very confident in her integrity and competence in evaluating home and helping find the right home for me. After I made an offer on a house she helped me deal with the mortgage company in obtaining a loan. Purchasing a home is not something that most people do often enough to be really savvy at it, but with someone like Judy helping to evaluate and assist me in my decision making, gave me all the power of a professional. I can tell you from first hand knowledge that Judy is very proficient and knowledgeable when it comes to realty and will represent her client's best interest in a very professional manner. I will recommend Judy to all my friends and family who may be in the market for a home because I know that she will represent their best interest and treat them in a very professional manner.

10/06/2016 - Clay and Carolyn East

It was a pleasure to work with Judy Brietstein during the sale of our home. Not only was she knowledgeable in her work, but was a fine neighbor of our family for 13 years. You are privileged to have her represent you during a time that can be stressful to all involved yet done professionally.

Judy always gave us her best. She made us feel we were her only clients which spoke volumes to us. She always gave us great advice and gave us her undivided attention. She was instrumental in helping guide us through the whole process without the first flaw. The photographs she took of our home were displayed beautifully on her website. We were thrilled at how smoothly everything transpired. We never dreamed our home would sell in 6 days! And can attribute it to Judy's excellence, experience and knowledge.

Thanks so much for allowing us to work with her through Coldwell Banker. If we ever have the opportunity to sell again, we would definitely want her representation at our side.

10/06/2016 - Preston Johnson

Pertaining to my recent home purchase assisted by Judy Brietstein and her affiliation with the Coldwell Banker, I would like to state that I would wholly recommend her as an agent as well as Coldwell Banker. Judy's assistance in this purchase is unfathomable and it probably would not have come to pass without her. She is obviously very experienced in the field as well as knowledgeable and the wisdom portrayed through the combination of these two attributes is priceless. She knew every trick in the book, had an answer for every question, and did everything in her power to accommodate any request. Judy is a true real estate professional and the service she provides is of the same caliber. Another benefit of Judy's professionalism is that she surrounds herself with a team of support people who also provide the same type of excellent service she does which is probably one of the most important aspects of a real estate agent, so not only was Judy exceptional but the people she recommended for various assistance such as mortgage broker, title agency, homeowners insurance, even painters, were on the same level as her. My experience with Coldwell Banker and especially Judy Brietstein was second to none and will insist on dealing with her in anyand all future real estate endeavors.

10/06/2016 - Dianne Copper

I was treated as though I were purchasing a million dollar home even though I was buying a small, foreclosure home. I always felt as though I was an important client.

10/06/2016 - Reagan and Krissy

I would first like to say that our move to Tennessee this past summer was one of the most stressful experiences my wife, Krissy, and I have ever been through This is in light of the fact that I had just completed a 5-year surgical residency program, where I worked 80+ hours every week We were on an exceedingly short time schedule, there were multiple variables that were unknown or unanswered due to our lender s ineptitude, and we were virtually homeless for a couple of weeks; attempting to secure the purchase of our home from over 250 miles away, To say Judy Brietstein was instrumental in helping us get our home on Arrowhead Trail, would be a dramatic understatement.

Without getting into specific details, we were initially impressed with working with her when we first met to view numerous homes over a shortened two-day time period. She was an untiring machine, and quickly picked up on our specific tastes and wishes in a home. After our offer was accepted, she continued her outstanding assistance by setting up inspections, meeting various contractors at the home for us, and 'going to bat for us both with our lender, as well as the sellers and their agent. These were all actions she took on herself, without request from us! She was our one bastion of strength and sanity throughout the whole crazy process. Without her, we likely would not be in our home today!

It is without reservation that we would recommend Judy with the highest regards to anyone looking to purchase a home in the area. Additionally, we know that when we start looking for a new home in a few years, which is likely, we will undoubtedly be calling on her for her invaluable assistance!

10/06/2016 - Stanley W. Cox

During our 47 years of marriage, Betty and I have moved 39 times. During this period we have met many realtors. It is our opinion that Judy Brietstein and your support staff at Coldwell Banker are among the top two of our many moves. The only one who surpassed Judy was when we worked directly with a developer who built our house in Pennsylvania from the ground up.

This puts Judy as the best realtor we have worked with. The following justifies her number one position with us:

1. From the beginning she took the time to understand our needs and wants. This is our retirement home and we wanted enough room for our son-in-law, our daughter and two granddaughters to visit with us.

2. The first home we made an offer on did not pass the home inspection. There was a lot to be done and the owner would only help with a few of the defects. Therefore we withdrew our offer and Judy continued to search.

3. Every day your support staff sent via the Internet those homes which met our needs and wants that were new and current.

4. Judy then went outside the box and asked if we would consider living in a golf club community. I liked the home and location and we made an offer. Although it was a short sale, we closed in about 40 days at Judy's suggested price which was well under budget. As I tell my friends, some who have already visited us in Maryville, that we can see the Smokey Mountains from our front porch and the 18th fairway from the back porch and deck.

5. After we closed, and were still living in Rochester, New York, Judy found us a painter who painted the entire inside of the house. He also repaired the screened in back porch and painted it and the deck. She also found us a company to clean the carpets on both floors. Both groups did an outstanding job.

Please give our best to Judy as we appreciate what she has done for us and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home to purchase in the Knoxville area.

10/06/2016 - Anna

I was satisfied with Judy Brietstein. She was very helpful, quick in arranging/scheduling meetings, looking for available houses, and willing to understand what kind of house I wanted to buy. Definitely, I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent.
