About Julie Tsai

Julie has consistently been a top-performing agent since beginning her real estate career in 2002. She has completed hundreds of real estate transactions for home sellers, buyers and investors at every level. She was named one of the top 250 realtors of the nation according to recent year's Wall Street Journal rankings.

She focuses on providing superior, personalized service to her clients, 80% of whom come from referrals or are repeat clients. Her success can be partly attributed to her single-minded dedication to providing the best possible representation to each and every client. She inherited a passion for real estate from her parents, who for over 20 years have owned and operated a highly successful real estate development company in Taiwan.

The wealth of knowledge and experience that Julie acquired from her family’s business proved to be invaluable. She has guided many clients through selling or buying new construction, fixer-uppers or tear-downs, remodeling or expanding homes, and income properties, helping them avoid expensive mistakes and achieve great results in their investments.

Julie not only speaks fluent Chinese, but she also understands the Asian culture, which provides an edge for her clients when conducting and negotiating real estate transactions in the Bay Area.

Julie has a BS from UC Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and an MBA. She lives in Palo Alto where she is very involved with her extended families and community.

"We met Julie from an open house 2.5 years ago. Because she was friendly, honest, and knowledgeable about the peninsula, we decided to choose her as our buyer agent. At that time, we were looking for a home with very specific needs. Julie took us to countless showings but despite not finding a home that met our criteria, she was still very patient. She went the extra mile to help us and was always responsive to emails / texts. Her passion for homes shines during showings and offered ways to improve the house. We appreciate how she shared her honest opinions of homes and places her client's interest first instead of only offering positive feedback just to make a sale. Finally, after looking at homes together for 2.5 years, we bought our dream home! She was really helpful in providing references for different services as we are completely new to this. We are grateful that we were in good hands during the home buying process!" - Rachel N. (Palo Alto)

"My husband and I were referred to Julie by a co-worker and could not have been happier that we found her as our agent. This was our first time buying a home so we wanted to work with someone who was knowledgeable, proactive, and patient with all of our questions. Julie did an awesome job from start to finish and guided us through the home buying process. She helped to arrange open house visits, put us in touch with trusted lenders, represented our interests to sellers, and ultimately helped us smoothly close on a home that we love. We would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Silicon Valley and would definitely work with her again!" - Christine C. (Sunnyvale)

"Julie is a wonderful agent who combines extraordinary knowledge of the Peninsula real estate market with an understanding and helpful personality. Julie has helped us with both buying and selling a home. She is very responsive and listens to our needs and preferences. On the selling side, she has many resources to help maximize your home's value and to make the process as painless as possible. On the buying side, Julie gives great insight and suggestions based on criteria that we had given. Overall, we don't think you can go wrong working with Julie and we feel lucky to have her on our side." - Chris Y. (Menlo Park)

"Home buying is a stressful event in this uncertain economy, because the timing of selling one house and purchasing another one involves infinite complicated factors such as price fluctuation, inventory, interest rate, and most of all, available buyers. June & I picked perhaps the most challenging time, the winter holiday season for this endeavor. Initially, we wanted to be conservative and sell our Sunnyvale residence before we purchase our Los Altos upgrade. We ended up switching to purchasing the Los Altos home first and then selling the Sunnyvale one and the experience was predictable, effortless, and in the end, financially advantageous. Throughout the process, Julie provided timely and insightful data, but let us make the decisions. When we switched order, she didn’t panic, but instead helped us with a systematic search of the limited inventory and found the perfect house for our needs (which by the way we missed on our own internet search). Within one week of moving into Los Altos, the Sunnyvale house had gone through the necessary preparation and was on the market & subsequently sold within a week. Julie took the responsibility of handling all paperwork, much of the meeting coordination, and minute details that we would’ve done ourselves. Of course, both houses also went through some unexpected issues during the escrow period, but Julie helped us put each into it proper perspective and resolve with the other party smoothly. Ultimately, we completed the house move smoothly, and probably profited financially from the order Julie suggested.Real estate business is a people business, and while there are many successful and experienced professionals in the lucrative Bay Area, I have heard of few with the personal touch, dedication, and finesse as Julie. I highly recommend Julie for anyone who expect and appreciate the best from the realtors." - Cheng. (Los Altos)

"Julie helped me to sell my 1 bedroom condo several years ago when the house had been on market for many months, unsold, handled by another agent. Julie also helped me to purchase a two bedroom condo last year and handled the transaction quickly and smoothly. I am very satisfied with Julie's capabilities and service. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent that can do the job, whether it's a big house or a small condo." - Yuju S. (Mountain View)

"Julie helped us a lot when we bought our house. This was our first time buying our first home, and our very first offer got accepted! During the closing process, she also helped us to communicate with the listing agent. This house buying process went pretty smoothly all because of Julie's great reputation. She's very professional, dedicated and never push customers to make decision. She also gave us a lot of good suggestion on house and remodel. Now we're still good friends and keep a very good relationship. If we need help of selling or buying home again, we will definitely work with Julie again." - Ya-Ching (San Mateo)
