My training in real estate began on the back of my parents’ bike in the Chicago area when I was 3yrs. My parents, who owned a local real estate brokerage, explained to me the importance of location in real estate and pointed out examples of valuable home improvements in my neighbors’ yards. However, like many young adults, I resisted the family business by spending 12 years teaching in the public education system. When finally in 2014, I jumped ship and joined the real estate business and have felt right at home ever since!
My open and honest advice helps sellers prepare their home for the market with staging advice, pricing expertise and professional photos in order to shine in today’s social media marketing. By educating my sellers and providing excellent communication, they are able to net a maximum amount with the least amount of stress in the sale of their home.
Buying a home is both an investment and an emotional decision; therefore, I focus on listening to the needs of my clients and helping them reach their goals. By understanding the process and the market, I am able to negotiate the best possible terms for my clients for their new home.
Investing in real estate is my specialty! Knowledge, expertise and informed, I am able to present all information to my investors so that they can make a solid decision for buying and selling an investment property.

"Julie was exactly what we needed as we bought and sold with her. She walked us through the process of selling a house and got us an over asking price offer. She helped us prepare our house, gave suggestions for things to fix up and what to not waste money on. During the buying process she kept us calm and helped us get our dream home in a tough buying market. Her knowledge is exceptional and she always made us feel like our questions were valid and that she had all the time in the [...]

"Julie is a fantastic realtor and really knows her stuff. I had a not so great experience with a previous realtor and she knocked it out of the park for me. She sold my condo for over asking price in literally in just a few day. She is the only realtor that I will ever work with and is a genuinely good person who you can trust."

Her response from the beginning was prompt, informative, concise and cordial. This style of communication was consistent throughout the whole process and all the way to the day of closing. We quickly decided to go with her to advise us and we are very satisfied that we did. Julie quickly demonstrates that she has is driven [...]

Julie met all our needs to help us in the purchase of our new home and sale of our current house, we had a lot of balls in the air, but Julie put us at ease and made it all seem easy! I can’t imagine working with another agent. She was beyond helpful and went above & beyond for us, we are so grateful she was our agent.

"Julie was great to work with. She worked around my quirkiness to meet my high demands and expectations while looking for my first home, on a low budget. We worked together to find the home of my dreams. Julie worked tirelessly to meet the short turn around deadlines to write offers on a very competitive sellers market. Given the market, I thought I would be looking for a home for months and months. I reached out to Julie by e-mail on March 1st, 2018. We met and she got to know my [...]
