We are dedicated to providing you unparalleled personal service and attention to help you find the right property at the best price.
Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will make and it is of utmost importance that you feel excited and confident about your decision to purchase. As a 25-year resident of Menlo Park, California, Judy Citron brings a seasoned and fresh perspective to real estate that translates to successfully serving her clients on the mid-Peninsula. Judy offers you unparalleled personal service at all times. It is her goal to seamlessly shepherd you to the finish line.
Judy’s journey in real estate began when she was a teacher. She was drawn to the creative aspects of teaching, and as a personal curiosity and passion, she explored further. With her signature creative and entrepreneurial spirit, she found herself designing, building, buying, and selling homes in the Bay Area since 1995. A teacher at heart, she will educate you on all aspects of the home and market trends prior to making an offer – including: value, nuance of the neighborhood, integrity of the property, equity potential, and market value. While working closely with Judy she will gain an understanding of your requirements and preferences and will help you develop a winning strategy. With the depth of experience acquired through over 1,000 completed real estate transactions, she will guide and support you throughout the process of purchasing a home.
Her strong relationships with clients and her agent community gives YOU an edge. Judy has access to many properties that are off-market and yet to be listed that most agents do not have access to and she will always give you the opportunity to see them first. Judy will work tirelessly to find your home and be sure you make an informed decision. Judy is keenly aware of the nuances that determine value – nuance of streets/neighborhoods, quality of construction, condition of home, and associated costs of potential upgrades.

THE PRIVATE CLIENT TEAM is different. Like Compass, Judy believes in doing things differently – not as things have been done, but as things should be done. In fact, Judy joined forces with Compass to elevate each client’s real estate experience to the next level by deploying a “high-touch meets high-tech” approach to luxury residential brokerage. The objective is to exceed client expectations in every possible way.
