Experienced, Full-Time, Current
Julie Dowdle Rogers, a Coldwell Banker Broker Associate, specializes in selling homes on the North Shore. Having lived in Wilmette, Winnetka, Northfield, Evanston, Glenview, Northbrook and Deerfield, she has intimate knowledge of the character of each town. She is an experienced Realtor that diligently views open houses in all these towns. Julie offers a broader geographical base than most agents that specialize in one town. Her reputation for professionalism and care are consistently noted by her clients and peers.
With an education in Psychology, she’s heard it all. Julie is an excellent listener and connects well with people. She helps clients prioritize their needs, stay within a budget and locate that prized new home. Her experience in negotiations gives her the ability to keep all aspects of a contract in mind while keeping both parties targeted on their goals. As an added strength, Julie has a Master’s degree in Real Estate Finance and has an understanding of financing that only experience provides. Julie gives a tireless commitment to all her clients. She hopes you will come experience this for yourself.
Services for Sellers
What Julie means when she says she’s a “client based” realtor is that she is all about you. She has a plethora of experience with people of all religions, cultures, backgrounds and interests. She goes above and beyond to accommodate you as a buyer or seller. Her experience has given her great insight into target marketing and analysis of today’s pricing issues. She will help sellers prepare both their house (staging) and themselves (emotionally), for the selling process. Her approach to selling is a true team concept with the seller being just as important as the realtor. Thus, she gives prompt feedback to her sellers on all showings and prospects. Julie’s communication style is flexible. She knows that some clients want voice mail, some want email, others use texting for information. She makes it a point to communicate with each client in their preferred style.
Julie makes sure that her buyers understand the implications of Agency law and its implications in the real estate market. She plans an initial meeting with her clients to create the parameters of a search. Julie finds that many buyers start with a large search and, after getting to know the areas better, narrow the parameter to focus on a school, beach, transportation system, special education service or nearness to other family members or friends. The process takes time, but Julie’s goal is to give her clients the time and information they need to make their decisions from knowledge and experience. Thus, she has the patience to guide her clients along and help them find the right fit. She has a list of mortgage brokers, inspectors, painters, floor finishers, and other contractors as needed.
A Broader Connection
Julie joined Coldwell Banker because she wanted the best for her clients. As the number one company in this market, and the only international company on the North Shore, Coldwell Banker offers the best of agent training and the broadest internet service for buyers and sellers. The Coldwell Banker name is known around the world as the premier real estate firm and enables Julie to be a top sales producer on the North Shore. With this extensive corporate resource supporting her, Julie sticks to the areas she knows (the North Shore), and introduces her clients to agents in Chicago and other cities when the need arises. Thus, she maintains connections with other proven professionals in various markets. She has a strong internet presence for herself and her listings to get the maximum exposure for her clients. Google, MSN, Yahoo, ColdwellBanker.com, JulieDowdleRogers.com, Realtor.com, Trulia and Zillow, all bring visitors to her website.
Julie raised her two sons on the North Shore. Both are now married and living in Chicago. Julie has one grandson and two grand-dogs. Julie and her ten siblings grew up in Wilmette. Most of her siblings and sixty five first cousins have settled on the North Shore. Thus, Julie maintains a large network and resource base throughout the North Shore area in order to service a diverse client base. She spends her free time attending movies, book club, swimming, singing in the choir at Temple Jeremiah, or supporting various charities.
