ABOUT JULIE

Julie Yau Tam is a real estate broker, Accredited Luxury Home Specialist, and 2016 winner of the Houston Association of REALTORS®’ 20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate awards. She represents buyers, sellers, landlords, and renters primarily in residential real estate transactions in the Greater Houston area and mostly from the average to luxury-home price range, including multimillion-dollar estates. She is also experienced in finding investment homes for buyers who want to become first-time landlords or add to their existing portfolio. Our company manages hundreds of rental homes (including single-family houses, condos, townhomes, and mid- and high-rise units) across Greater Houston. Julie has been the exclusive listing agent for builder Brookstone Homes in various neighborhoods.

A top-producing real estate broker and sought-after real estate analyst, she has appeared in various media including FOX 26 News Houston, Texas REALTOR® magazine, and the front page of the Houston Chronicle. She spent more than 10 years as a TV news anchor/reporter, seen on local & national TV, including CNN, NBC/MSNBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, The Weather Channel, and CourtTV (now truTV).

Julie provides exceptional service and expertise. She prides herself on honesty, integrity, market knowledge, attention to detail, mastery of technology, effective marketing, superior  negotiating skills, and prompt communication. Her experience and commitment to her clients keeps them coming back to her for all their real estate needs. She has earned their trust and their referrals of friends and family.

Julie can relate to a diverse array of people. She speaks English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Cantonese, understands different cultures, and has traveled extensively through dozens of countries around the world.

She grew up in the business. Her mother, Annie Chen, founded Lyn Realty in 1981. She actually began “working” for her mom since she was 7, when she started doing bookkeeping, inputting listings in MLS, following her to appointments, and doing everything else she was allowed to do without a real estate license.

Julie earned a B.A. in Economics from Rice University, so she understands market trends and the math behind financing and property values. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Rice University Center for Career Development and has served on the Board for the Association of Rice Alumni. She is a native Houstonian, graduated from Second Baptist Upper School, and has known the city for decades. She danced 10 years with the Houston Ballet Academy and has won awards as a soprano classical singer. Philanthropy is very important to Julie; she and her husband especially love supporting charities that help animals and disabled children.

Julie is licensed to practice real estate anywhere in Texas. Since she specializes in the Houston area, if you are looking for representation elsewhere, she may be able to refer you to another agent in that market.
