"Helping Buyers and Sellers make the right move!"
My business philosophy applies to all aspects of my life: "Treat everyone you meet with dignity and respect. I know that buying or selling a home can be one of the most significant events in a person's lifetime and I have both the experience and knowledge my clients can trust. Through my attention to detail, prompt response and patience, my clients can count on me to provide professional and courteous customer service. Whether you are buying or selling a home, my ultimate goal is to make your real estate experience rewarding and pleasant."
As a full-time real estate broker for the last 17 years and with a degree in communications, Julie demonstrates the ability to listen to her client's needs and communicate effectively- critical elements in establishing trust. Since becoming a Realtor®, Julie has consistently been an award winning producer closing $100,000 to muliti-million dollar real estate transactions. She believes her success is due in part because she truly enjoys helping her clients find the right home as much as she does marketing a property. Julie guides her clients through every step of the way from the first meeting until after the closing.
Julie grew up in Lake Forest and graduated from Woodlands Academy and Texas Christian University. Julie is a lifelong Lake County resident actively involved in the community. She is the founder and active board member of Teen Courts in Lake County, former Chair of Nicasa's Women's Auxiliary Board, and volunteers as a tutor for grade school children in North Chicago.

Clients are saying:
"Julie is an amazing agent! It is a very stressful time to pack up after 30 plus years and move on and then you add the Coronavirus to the mix and holy cow it is doubly stressful! Julie was with us for every step of the way. Her experience and knowledge was so very helpful that we couldn’t have done it without her professional guidance! Julie answered all of our questions the same day and if she had to research, because of Covid issues, she had the answer later that day. She was able to control who came through our house and made sure cleanliness was at the top of the list. We were able to sleep at night knowing we could trust her. With no hesitation I would recommend Julie to anyone selling/buying a home. She listed our home and we also bought a new home through Julie!"
"When it comes to professionalism Julie leads the pack. We were extremely impressed with her poise, market knowledge and willingness to do whatever it took to market our home. She is easy to deal with, responsive and resourceful. I would recommend her to anyone wanting the best representation when selling their home.

"Julie was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire home buying process. This was the first home that I purchased and Julie was there every step of the way to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a home!"
"Julie is a phenomenal realtor! She was reliable and honest which I appreciated as we were first-time home buyers! If we had any questions she didn't know the answer to about a home she always looked into it."
"Julie sold our previous home in Libertyville during the lowest lows of the Recession and found the new home for me just right for location, size, condition and cost. Also, I have referred work associates to Julie and have heard back that they were very happy with the professional and considerate approach Julie utilizes. I am amazed by Julie's extensive knowledge of real estate in our area, but even more so on how well she understands my concerns and wishes. My highest possible recommendation for Julie Pawl!"
