About Julie
In the early part of 2018, Julie joined a Westchester-based firm to manage upscale condominium and homeowner’s associations, focused primarily in Hastings on Hudson, Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, Larchmont and White Plains. In addition to her work as a property manager, by the Fall of 2018, she also became a licensed real estate salesperson. She joined Compass to be part of the Adam/Zoya Team in March of 2019.

Prior to embarking on a career in real estate, Julie had a successful 20+ year run in advertising and market research where she led multi-million dollar advertising campaigns for some of the most well-known consumer Brands across many of the most respected content and advertising companies in the country, such as Time Inc, Saatchi & Saatchi, Starcom and The Advertising Council. She was most recently Vice President, Group Partner at UM, responsible for the advertising planning and media investment efforts of popular clothing retailer, H&M, during an agency-transition and rapid growth phase into the US.

Julie is a resident of Hastings on Hudson in Westchester County with her husband and three young daughters. To relax and have fun, Julie enjoys cheering on her three soccer-loving daughters, volunteering for the Girl Scouts, being a softball coach, a volunteer firefighter and an avid-exerciser.

★★★★★
"Julie was excellent in showing us numerous properties in Westchester when we were looking for a home in the River Towns. With an extremely tight timeline and a competitive market, Julie helped us navigate and successfully purchase our first home. She is extremely personable, warm, and goes above and beyond. With her help, we were able to close very quickly. We would recommend." - Celia M., Tarrytown, NY

★★★★★
"Julie is a great partner when it comes to home buying. She is knowledgeable, resourceful, and attentive to her buyers. Julie was proactive in guiding us through the whole process and ensure we were armed with all of the information we needed to make a good decision. She was always available and a great communicator, which made it easier for us overall. We appreciated Julie's partnership and would highly recommend her to friends and family." - K.H., Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

★★★★★
"I highly recommend using Julie for your real estate needs. She is not your typical real estate agent. She helped us look for both rentals and purchases, both over FaceTime and in person. She listened to our needs and was never pushy. She relayed facts to us without judgements. She responded to requests and questions and went above and beyond to make the buying process easy. She read all of the board documents for our coop and helped us print documents and put the package together. She’s respectful, intelligent, thoughtfully and caring. She worked with the sellers agent to help us decide what offer to make without going over what was necessary. Julie goes above and beyond to be helpful and wants her clients to be satisfied with where they end up. She’s also very human and gave our daughter a book and a dollhouse and acknowledged that she was as much a part of the process as the adults were. I do not hesitate to use Julie again and to recommend her to anyone looking to buy, rent or sell in the area.." "- Amanda H, Tarrytown

★★★★★
"Very professional team that made the sale of our house easy. Negotiated a very good price, always available for any concerns. We highly recommend this team for the sale of your property." "- G. Dimant, Hastings on Hudson

★★★★★
"I’ve worked with Julie for the last year and a half specifically looking at multi-family and income properties in the Rivertowns. Julie had been a pleasure to work with - responsive, knowledgeable, and a real partner to me. I successfully purchased one multi-family property with Julie - her insights on both the purchase and rental market were invaluable and she was a great negotiation partner! The property has been a big success - I hired Julie recently to market one of the units for rental and literally within days of the listing going live She secures multiple offers and negotiated a 2 year lease for me at a significant increase in rent . She managed the process efficiently, worked very well with the existing tenants and prospective renters, and very strategically managed multiple offers to optimize my goals. I continue to work with Julie to look for additional properties - she is proactive and a thoughtful agent in finding properties that meet my evolving parameters. It’s clear she isn’t just trying to make a deal happen - she is partnering for the long term to make the best deal happen for me. I would recommend Julie without reservation!" - A. Listerman, Tarrytown, NY

★★★★★
"Julie and her Team met with us and provided a detailed analysis of the local market and a realistic appraisal of our property's potential. Since we had potential private buyers, we were allowed time to negotiate with them before committing. We decided that we could do better signing with Julie, which proved to be the case. Their knowledge of the market enabled us to get top dollar and a quick sale. They helped us prepare the property for showing, provided useful suggestions for improving the appeal and even supplied some furniture to achieve that. A professional photographer took masterful pictures. They guided and supported us through every stage of the process. They had more useful advice than our own attorney which was invaluable from contract signing through the closing. Extremely professional from start to finish. Could not have been more pleased." - Jonathan, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY

★★★★★
"Julie was immensely helpful and a pleasure to work with. My wife and I were looking to purchase a home fairly quickly and reached out to Julie just shy of two weeks before our wedding. Julie was on vacation at the time but was incredibly resourceful and responsive to set us up with a search that met our parameters and then find team members who could show us around while she was away. She made the best use of the little time we had and then helped us ask all the right questions when we toured possible properties with her. She made it her mission to help us get in an offer before my wife and I left for our honeymoon and regularly kept in touch with updates and advise on navigating the process. She was also able to help us identify the best partners to work with for financing and we completed the sale in record time. Julie was a delight throughout the process and we couldn't be more grateful." - Alex, Hartsdale, NY

★★★★★
"We highly recommend Julie and had a wonderful experience working with her. She is attentive, responsive, knowledgeable and overall was extremely helpful guiding us through what otherwise had the potential to be been a very challenging experience. She was also very supportive and patient throughout the whole process all while very clearly having our best interests in mind - we can't say enough good things. Thanks for everything, Julie!" - M.S. Dobbs Ferry, NY

★★★★★
"Julie assisted in the skillful staging of our condominium which highlighted its openness and desirability. She kept us informed on a regular basis of showings and was always available for questions. Her expertise and advice were so helpful in our preparation for the sale and viewing. After our contract was signed and during closing she provided invaluable assistance in the successful sale of our condominium. A pleasure to work with, she was able to address any issues and assist us in the proper way to satisfy our buyer's concern. She enabled a positive experience for us, the seller and I am sure the buyer. " - P.F. ,Hastings on Hudson

★★★★★
"Julie brings the knowledge, patience and above all the warmth that one would hope for in a real estate broker. From the start of our home transition through the end (and beyond), Julie felt like a member of our team...locating, scheduling, evaluating and strategizing across dozens of properties over a few months. She has boundless positive energy, took the time to understand what we truly wanted and made a traditionally difficult process -- especially in a pandemic -- so much easier. I highly recommend working with her if you have the chance!" - K. Seligman, Pelham

★★★★★
"Working with Julie to find our first home was an absolute pleasure. She was warm, attentive, and patient with us as we navigated this new territory, advising us at every stage of the process. She was incredibly thoughtful in getting to know our personal needs, and help us narrow in on the right house, in the right location. When we found the home that was the perfect fit, Julie and the team worked swiftly to make a deal. While the circumstances of the pandemic added quite a few curveballs along the way, Julie was incredibly supportive through the entire process, through closing and as we've settled into our new home. We are so thrilled with our home and grateful to Julie for getting us here! Thank you! " - L.C.

★★★★★
"Adam, Zoya, & Julie are the dream team of Rivertowns real estate. They delivered full concierge service, taking burdens and stress off of my plate as the seller and overseeing and managing everything. They also truly care about their clients and I always trusted I was in good hands. They made sure to go above and beyond- checking in regularly and investing in me as the seller and the entire process to ensure a smooth sale from beginning to end. I highly recommend them as they are the epitome of ethical real estate." - Lili T.
