Julie Ann Gillis' clients value her calm, supportive manner and strong instincts. She thoroughly enjoys the process of bringing buyers and sellers together in creative ways - transactions which are enjoyable and beneficial to both parties. Real estate should be a "win-win" adventure. Many of Julie's clients are now active board and committee members in their co-ops and condos, or in other community groups. Julie knows that a good match ultimately enhances the fabric of the community.
A seasoned facilitator, Julie is particularly adept at navigating the co-op application and approval process. Attorneys and mortgage brokers are likely to recommend her to clients involved in complex transactions. Sellers find her forthright and realistic; she knows that strategic pricing is essential to achieving their best price, whether the market is sluggish or overheated. Buyers know they have a partner in their search, a coach with an effective mix of patience, market savvy, and assertiveness.
Julie grew up in suburban Detroit and attended Michigan State University where she majored in anthropology (Asian studies). Her venture into real estate sales began in Detroit. When she moved to New York in 1982, Julie pursued an eleven-year career as a facility manager for the national office of a major not-for-profit corporation. During that time, she earned a Diploma in Construction Management from New York University.
In the mid-1990s, Julie began to sell real estate in Hudson Heights and Inwood and has been delighted to participate in the evolution of Upper Manhattan into the diverse, vital, welcoming community it is today. "Upper Manhattan is the small town in the big city, and it remains a great value," she says.
Julie invites you to call her to discuss your real estate needs. Whether you are selling your home or looking to purchase, you can be assured of her commitment, discretion, and integrity.
In her free time, Julie explores the quirky and the quintessential New York attractions: meditation and museums, sample sales and symphonies, poetry and proper tea. When currents and tides are favorable, you might find Julie on the Hudson in her bright orange kayak - anywhere from Battery Park to the Tappan Zee Bridge.
