Judge Realty announces the hiring of Rachel Ravenelle as the latest sales associate to join the Judge Commercial division.

Ravenelle has over 6 years of real estate experience in the Savannah area as both a real estate agent and property manager. The majority of her experience has been working for a Real Estate Investment Investment Trust (REIT) with an emphasis in Commercial Property Management. She has helped managed commercial holdings worth over $30 million in assets.

Moving back to Savannah from Boston, Rachel received her Georgia Real Estate licence in 2009 and has since maintained very notable clients including the U.S. Government’s General Services Administration, Ulta Beauty, the largest beauty retailer in the United States, and Wet Willie’s Daiquiri Bar and Restaurant.

Rachel’s record of maintaining a 92% to 100% occupancy at her past positions held at Woodruff Property Management and Callen Trust, led her to become the perfect candidate to join the Judge Commercial team.

Graduated from Auburn University, Rachel holds two degrees, a B.A. in Political Science, and a B.S. in Nutrition & Dietetics.  Currently, Ravenelle sits on the Realtor Commercial Alliance of Savannah, Georgia Board of Realtors, and the Savannah Riverfront Association.

Rachel is now the 6th person to be added to the Commercial division of Judge Commercial confirming positive growth and development happening throughout the region.

Judge Realty now manages over 60 commercial units and have been the leading brokerage company to streamline the major developments on Broughton Street, Liberty Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard selling over $66 million last year.

 Judge Realty is Savannah’s only full service, locally owned and operated brokerage company. Celebrating 10 years in business, Judge Realty specializes in residential and commercial real estate, as well as in property managements and rentals.

N: Amy Young and I became fast friends a few years back during one of her regular Savannah visits when she happened to have an extra ticket to a Savannah Music Festival show. It didn’t take long for her to tell me about her long time love for Savannah and her plans for SixTwelve back in Oklahoma City, and incorporating a community exchange with Savannah as part of her dream for that organization. It took one or two more trips before we began looking at homes, and we’d only looked at a handful when we came to the cottage on Charlton Lane. Amy knew immediately this was the one and before long Amy was an official, if only part time, Savannah resident. I’m glad to have gained a great friend, and honored to have played a small part in making the artist exchange a reality.


What made you choose Judge Realty? 

Y: I chose Judge Realty because of their reputation, the incredible attention that they give to each home buyer and because of the support they provide to the arts community in Savannah. This was very important to me because the little house I purchased will be used as a residency for artists, musicians, writers, chefs, farmers, and anyone else that want to send to this beautiful city. The community education center my partner and I are starting in Oklahoma City, SixTwelve, will reciprocally host creative people from Savannah. We want to start a group of culture and community exchanges each year, so as to give people a chance to learn, to grow and to share knowledge.

Three words to describe Jason Nielubowicz as an agent…

Y: Attentive, Kind, Professional

From contract to close, how did we do?

Y: I would give Judge Realty five out of five stars! I needed help between making an offer and closing because I live in Oklahoma part-time and couldn’t be in Savannah for the inspections, appraisals, etc. Jason was always there and would respond promptly to any questions or concerns that I had. I could not have been more lucky to have found Judge Realty to help me through the process.

Advice for others selling / buying properties? 

Y: Everyone I meet at Judge Realty is top notch! You can’t go wrong with choosing someone from this company to help you buy or sell. Jason was wonderful to work with because he treated me like a friend and watched out for everything I needed. In addition, Lori Judge has personally helped me to meet people throughout Savannah that could enrich the process of setting up the residency exchange. How did I get so lucky?!?

What was your overall experience working with Judge Realty? 

Y: My experience working with Judge Realty was so good that I will definitely choose them the next time I purchase property in Savannah. I couldn’t be happier, plus I feel like I gained a great group of friends. I’m so grateful!

Realtor Magazine has announced Lori Judge, founder and principal broker of Judge Realty, as Runner Up for their Why I have Street Cred contest. Lori has been featured, along with other winners, in the February issue of Realtor Magazine on newsstands now.

The Street Cred contest was held in late 2014 and required realtors to send in a video explaining what was unique about their community and how they helped to enhance that uniqueness. Highlighting her art advocacy, Judge chose to focus on the art community of Savannah.

“I have had a passion for art since before I can remember. As a business owner, I believe it is my duty to nurture the culture of the community the best way you know how. By combining my passion for arts and real estate I’ve been committed to helping the local art scene grow and prosper and don’t expect to slow down anytime soon.”

The video highlighted the various public art projects Judge has sponsored and helped secure locations for including Candy Chang’s Before I Die wall and the Juxtapox Magazine and Converse Wall to Wall project with local artist Matt Hebermehl. She also points out using her own office building as a public art project for Flower Power by local artist Katherine Sandoz.

The video also introduces the Judge Realty permanent art collection recently started with the purchase of Jacksonville artist Kedgar Volta’s Urban Impositions. The installation is on view for the public to see in the windows of Judge Realty and displays the people of Savannah walking through the piece of art. Lori points out that she has always “loved the idea of having a private art collection being accessible to the public,” and has plans to continue and grow this model over the next several years.
