Julie Lyon’s work in real estate is truly a family affair. She started in the business in 2005 after her husband, a home builder, suggested she give it a try. “When my son graduated from college, he got his license, and I decided to join him,” she exclaims. Her son, Brett Lyon, went on to open his own brokerage with his business partner Woody Stahl, Lyon Stahl Investment Real Estate, which is headquartered in El Segundo and has two additional offices. In 2017, Julie joined Lyon Stahl and now leads the luxury residential division. The team covers the area from Long Beach to Santa Monica, with their niche being the South Bay. Annually, they sell over $45 million in volume with homes ranging in the $1-$8 million range.
Julie brings over fifteen years of residential listings, plus a wealth of knowledge in the Beach Cities’ markets to Lyon Stahl. “My daughter, Stephanie, is also a member of the team and she offers exceptional client care,” she says. It’s no wonder their business is 85% repeat and referral clientele. “We’re honest, trustworthy, and take care of everyone equally,” says Julie.
A lifelong resident of Manhattan Beach, Julie is well-informed of current residential projects and historical trends in her community and the surrounding coastal areas.
Her clients agree that both Julie and Stephanie offer top-notch service. Writes one customer: “Julie Lyon and her daughter, Stephanie, are a great real estate team. I have known Julie and Stephanie for years and would not go to anyone else. They sold my house in Palos Verdes and found a gem in Manhattan Beach just a few months later. I am extremely picky and could not believe that they found a house that I love. They are extremely caring and also intuitive. They will go the extra mile so that they find the right house for the right person or family. I would not use any other team.”
Julie maintains quality contact with her clientele. “We send out a monthly newsletter, as well as multiple other client touchpoints, such as greeting cards, emails, phone calls, and a monthly magazine,” she says.
Julie and her team have been consistently recognized as one of the best in the region. Prior to joining Lyon Stahl Real Estate, Julie spent over 10 years working for two national real estate companies and has received numerous top producer awards, including America’s Top 100 Real Estate Agents® Award for 2019, and the 2020 Five Star Real Estate professional award. Julie holds several real estate designations, including Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), International Real Estate Specialist (IRES), and Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR).
As for her marketing tactics, Julie pulls together professional photos and high-end drone videos–along with quality descriptions–and posts them to social media, high-end industry sites, and leverages the video on digital streaming networks. “We also believe in marketing to neighbors in a particular area,” she says referring to her targeted mail marketing, “It’s very effective in bringing us leads.”
When not working, Julie loves to spend time in or on the water. “We love to swim, go boating, and spend family time on the beach together,” she says.
For now, Julie loves the direction in which her business has taken. “I’ll keep doing this for as long as I can,” she says. “Right now, I enjoy helping to make our community a happier place.”
