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.

"Working with Julie Colmar to find our new home was a great experience. I knew I liked her from day one. She was quick to respond no matter what time or in what way we contacted her. She made herself available around our schedules and met us whenever and wherever we chose. When we had an accepted offer on the home we chose, she was so excited for us. She was truly an ally throughout the process. I will be handing her card out to my friends who are looking to move."

"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 [...]

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 [...]
