When buyers and sellers are looking for a customer-focused realtor who doubles as a visionary space planner, those in the know call Julie Stewart. As an experienced real estate agent and a certified interior designer, she offers a unique turnkey service that sets her apart from other agents. Julie’s an expert in helping her clients negotiate the best possible deal. She’s also highly skilled in helping sellers make cost-effective decisions in order to maximize their listing price. “In addition to our fiduciary responsibility, we owe it to our clients to practice the Golden Rule. We work closely with our clients throughout the entire process to ensure that everything goes smoothly,” she says.
In her 30+ years in real estate and design, Julie has earned a sterling reputation. As Broker/Owner of Stewart & McGee Real Estate she and her agents cover Northeast Texas. Her career began in 1987 with one of the oldest established firms in Dallas. She has owned and managed her own real estate brokerages in both Texas and Florida. As a Luxury Home Specialist, Certified 2nd Home Buyer’s Agent, and an Interior Designer, she’s also a graduate of the New York Institute of Art & Design and a member of the Designers Society of America. But she’s most proud of the fact that more than 75% of her sales come from repeat clients and referrals. “I love helping clients buy and sell homes. My job is to ensure that everything goes smoothly and things are done correctly in a timely, professional manner. I never tire of seeing my clients smile when they walk into their new home.”
Julie’s office takes full advantage of all the power of the Internet and the best of today’s technological tools. Her listings go out to three different MLS services in East Texas and throughout the Dallas Metroplex. She also employs a wide variety of marketing tools including direct mail, targeted neighborhood advertising, open houses, brochures, and magazines. “We do everything possible to promote our listings”, she remarks. The agents on her team are also committed to giving back to the community and regularly participate in activities like volunteering to ring the Bell for the Salvation Army at the holidays.
In her free time, Julie loves entertaining friends and spending time with family, especially her five-year-old granddaughter and three-year-old grandson. She enjoys reading, being outdoors, the beach, gardening, and cooking, though she freely admits that with her non-stop schedule, she doesn’t have time for the latter much anymore. “Now that the kids are all grown, mostly I just read and entertain,” she says with a smile.
Julie loves what she does and has no plans to retire. “I’m going to keep doing what I do, and I intend to do it for a very long time. In fact, my friends say that I likely will meet my maker with a contract in my hand!”
