er thoughtful approach to real estate is reflected in the career path that Julia Evans charted. She pursued corporate experience before launching her practice, establishing a solid understanding of the business components that would allow her to provide her clients with an exceptional level of representation and care. Today, Julia represents buyers and sellers with integrity and knowledge, assisting them in successfully navigating a range of residential transactions.
Growing up, Julia knew that real estate was in her future. “My dad and stepfather were involved in different aspects of the industry,” she explains. “I loved talking business with them, and looked forward to the opportunity to help others realize their dreams.” Her own experience proved invaluable; Julia’s family moved frequently throughout her youth, and she recalls vividly the process of acclimating to a new community. “So often, there was stress as well as excitement,” she observes. “I think I found joy in the process of starting fresh, though.” Her empathetic approach has been born of those experiences; Julia thrives in her role as an objective consultant and a knowledgeable resource for her clientele. Prior to earning her license Julia earned a Bachelor of Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, then delved into the corporate world as a Human Resources Executive with Target Corporation, an organization known for its commitment to promoting employee education and professional enrichment. “There was an incredible sense of structure, which I have incorporated into my business,” she states. Her streamlined business model promotes efficacy and allows Julia to dedicate her efforts to meeting each client’s unique needs. Julia is as compassionate as she is professional, an individual who readily connects with her clients to earn their trust and respect throughout the course of every transaction and beyond. Working with equity sellers as well as those dealing with distressed properties, she acts as a sounding board for their wants, needs and concerns, and provides up-to-date information designed to assist them in making the right choices for their distinct situations. Her exponential business growth is a testament to Julia’s client-centric model; she states that she has consistently increased production levels and is exceeding her own professional goals. “I’ve been pleased,” she acknowledges. “The growth has been very organic and manageable; I’m busier, but continuing to offer my clients the personalized care that they deserve.”
She works with a range of individuals, from first-time buyers to seasoned investors, providing sound solutions to the challenges facing consumers in a still-transitioning real estate marketplace. An astute negotiator, Julia works tirelessly to accomplish her clients’ objectives and to facilitate transactions that are as smooth and stress-free as possible. She appreciates the support of her brokerage, Star Real Estate South County, which offers a wealth of resources designed around the needs of real estate professionals and their clientele. “At Star Real Estate South County, agents are given autonomy to run their businesses as they best see fit,” she explains, “With the guidance of a leadership team that is always available when we have a question or issue.” The organization, she adds, boasts a diverse group of real estate professionals who enjoy a collaborative atmosphere. “We are all focused on achieving success, for ourselves and for our clients,” she says. “It’s incredibly motivating.” Julia’s collegial relationships extend well beyond her brokerage. An active member of the Orange County Association of REALTORS® (OCAR), she has accepted a nomination to serve as the Vice Chair of the association’s Young Professional Network for 2013. She’s also an inaugural member of the Aliso Viejo Chamber of Commerce and looks forward to volunteering as a committee member with the organization. Professional commitments aside, Julia states that her priority will continue to be on accomplishing her clients’ objectives. Julia credits her family for their unwavering support. “I’m so blessed to have them,” she muses. “They are my rock, have been there throughout every struggle I’ve had. My family and Christian faith are an integral part of my happiness and well-being.” For her clients, Julia strives to act as a rock as well, to provide them with a solid foundation of consistent and thoughtful representation designed to assist them in realizing their dreams.
