"Julie Stanczak was always pleasant, courteous, and above all professional while working with us to sell our condo. It was a difficult market, but Julie persisted and was always optimistic. We had to relocate to India, midway, and left the selling process in Julie's capable hands, since we had full faith in her commitment to get us the best deal possible. Julie took care of the paperwork, coordination, etc, and kept us in the loop at all times and we were very satisfied with her professionalism and attention to detail."

"Julie Stanczak was an enormous help in the entire home-buying process and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an honest and hard-working Chicago real estate agent. She was great in helping me through the various concerns I had as a first-time buyer. Julie's biggest motivation is making sure her clients are informed and confident in the decisions they make. She has a great knowledge of the many Chicago neighborhoods and made me comfortable with the process from start to finish. Without question, I would recommend Julie to friends or anyone else looking to buy in Chicago."

"Julie is extremely personable and friendly yet also very professional and realistic about current market conditions. Don't let that great smile fool you - she has the skills to get the job done!"

"Julie always had my best interests in mind, communication was great, and I was at no point concerned that my account was not being handled with the utmost professionalism. Thanks Julie!!"

"Julie was a pleasure to work with during both the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our new one. She had patience with us during our search for our perfect home and was confident that we would find it. Her knowledge of the neighborhoods and the layouts of homes made the seach so much easier. And her advice during negotiations was invaluable while getting through multiple offer situations on both homes. We couldn't be happier in our new house and Julie helped us get there. - A & J M., Buyer/Seller"

"I have now had two experiences with Julie over the last ten years or so. She sets the standard for real estate agents. Julie and her team did an amazing job of selling our property from start to finish. From day one, communication was seamless and prompt, the recommendations Julie made in preparation to sell and then marketing were top notch, and all in-person interactions were professional and prioritized the safety of all parties involved during a challenging public health emergency. I would recommend Julie and her team without hesitation. - Krys B, Seller"

"Julie is phenomenal! She was a true partner from the moment we expressed interest in looking for a home and throughout the entire process. She gave us lots of options, was patient with us, and was excellent at communication to make sure that we got what we wanted. She’s a wonderful realtor and truly cared that we found a house that we would love and that could become our home. Can’t recommend enough. - Heather H, Buyer"

"Julie was simply awesome. She helped us scope out the market a year before we knew we were going to buy, so that when the time came we were ready. She's very knowledgeable and made the entire process, even in this crazy market, easy. - T.S., Buyer"

"Julie did a top notch job for us. She was always very prompt in responding to showing requests and questions. She negotiated a great deal for us. We could not have been more pleased and recommend her without reservation."

"Julie is an incredible agent. She is patient, resourceful, efficient, highly educated on the market, excellent at her networking, and highly competent. She showed prowess and pose when negotiating in this highly competitive seller's market. She thought creatively and outside of the box. She never made us feel like our MANY showings and multiple offers were an imposition. Any buyer or seller would be lucky to have her represent him/her. - Kim V, Buyer"


About Julie
An accomplished Realtor since 2005, Julie prides herself on her ability to truly listen to her clients and tailor her services to their needs, whether buying or selling. Her extensive knowledge of the Chicago market and 12+ years of experience in real estate allow her to educate her clients and guide them throughout the entire process of buying, selling, or renting a home.

Realizing that buying or selling a home may be one of the most important decisions a person can make, Julie finds that building a relationship with her clients and providing concierge level service is the best way to make that process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. She is always available to her clients, 24/7, even after the deal has closed, for all of their real estate needs. Almost all of Julie’s business comes from referrals through previous clients, which she feels is the strongest testament to her work ethic and the most essential aspect of her business growth. The satisfaction of knowing that each client has found a home perfect for them is what fuels her motivation.

Julie was based out of Bucktown and River North for over ten years, and focused on Chicago neighborhoods such as Wicker Park, Logan Square, and the West Loop. As a resident of Oak Park since 2004, she is also able to provide personal experience and extensive knowledge of Oak Park, River Forest, and other neighboring Western Suburbs as well. She joined the Lake Group, one of Chicago's most successful real estate teams, in March of 2020.

Julie currently resides in Oak Park with her husband, their three children, and their golden doodle, Pudge. Originally from St Louis, she has also lived in Indiana where she attended Purdue University, the San Francisco Bay Area, and most recently, as an expat for three years with her family in Singapore. She is happy to be back in the Chicagoland area and living in the home that she and her husband gutted down to the studs to make their own and helping her clients to find their own "dream home".
