Clients are saying:
"Julie is wonderful. My wife and I looked at over a hundred houses over the past three years. Julie stayed patient with us an persistent in our home search till we found what we were looking for.
Julie was also a terrific asset in selling our old place and secured three offers over listing in the first week.
I would recommend Julie highly for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. We had a terrific experience."
"One of the BEST real-estate property professionals I've worked with. I can call on her anytime, any place. She will respond within matter of minutes. I've never met someone who is so timely and responsive. Her word is a bond. If she tells you it will get done, it will. I never had to double check what she said or what she will do. You can count on her to get things done. Next time I'm in the market, Julie will be first person I will call. I would rate her "definitely" rather than just "highly likely.""
"As a first time home-buyer, Julie was everything I was looking for in a realtor. She is honest and knowledgeable, and got my a great deal on my new condo in downtown Chicago. While I was focused on purchasing downtown, she is also super familiar with the surrounding suburbs.
If you want a smart, funny, no-nonsense realtor, Julie is it!"
"I worked with Julie for both selling my home and finding a new one. She is really much more of a consultant than a sales person. She has excellent knowledge of the market and her advice on pricing and negotiating was spot on. She was very responsive and reliable always getting back to me quickly and usually available right away. In helping me find a new home, she was also very patient and insightful often pointing out things I would never have noticed about each property. She is also a pleasure and fun to work with and works well with other agents and firms making the entire process go very smoothly. I would strongly recommend her for both selling or buying a home."
"We were introduced to Julie Mangan by friends who she had helped to buy a condo. Julie was absolutely wonderful in helping us sell our condo in 2013. The advice she provided--when to put it on the market, does it make sense to take it off the market and wait a while, etc.--and her knowledge and tact in negotiating for us made the process easy. She was timely with responses and constantly kept us up to date on any interest in our place. She brought in a skilled photographer and did a great job marketing and showing our place until we closed the deal. I would recommend Julie to list a home or help buy one in a heartbeat."
