Get to know Julie Strassman
Julie Strassman grew up in New Jersey but, not particularly a fan of the cold weather, moved to Florida and attended the University of Miami where she majored in journalism. She then moved to Los Angeles where she found immediate employment as a TV writer, working on such hit shows as "Webster" and "Full House." When a friend of Julie's was going to Toronto to produce a sitcom, he asked her to come along to write it. Always looking for adventure, Julie moved, yet again, to Toronto. Hating the cold but falling in love with the city and her soon-to-be husband, her eight-month contract turned into a 21-year stay. In Toronto, Julie enjoyed a very long and successful writing career, working on numerous childrens' shows such as Canadian Sesame Street, Babar, Zaboomafoo, and Skinnamarink, as well as the adult soap opera, "Metropia." She has a 16-year-old daughter, two cats and a horse. Julie and her husband purchased three homes and totally renovated one. It was during the many searches for the perfect home that Julie developed her love of real estate.
As a writer, most days Julie had no one to talk to and looked only at a blank computer screen. Craving to be around people, Julie earned her licence as a Realtor and combined her two passions: making new friends and working in Real Estate.
Julie likes to make buying or selling a home or condo a stress-free and fun experience for everyone. She is available for her clients 24/7, and if she can't answer her phone, she will return the call as soon as she is able. Throughout the entire buying or selling process Julie will keep you posted every step of the way. She works with real estate lawers and mortgage brokers who are caring, trust-worthy, and can be depended on to keep you in the loop as well.
Julie is experienced in buying and selling both houses and condos, but her love is finding the perfect home for first time buyers. Whether it is a condo in the Annex, a home in Moorepark, or a semi-detached in Scarborough, she will work her hardest for you. Julie is not a salesperson who puts any pressure on anyone -- her only intereset is finding her buyers the perfect home, or selling and marketing a home quickly and getting the most money for her client.

I sell Residential Real Estate with an emphasis on first time buyers and families with children. Having a child of my own and friends and clients with children of all ages, I have researched and knowledgeable about both private and public schools. I know the neighbourhood parks and playgrounds for kids and the off-leash areas for dogs. Having lived in the Beaches, Moorepark and Downtown, I am well-acquainted with many areas of the city. I work Scarborough, Downtown, The Beaches, Moorepark, Bloor West Village, Forest Hill, The Annex, Waterfront communites, Danforth Village and everything in between.
I am an expert organizer and de-clutterer (if that's not a word it should be!)
I am with my clients, whether they are first-time buyers or sellers of third or fourth homes, from the first phone call until the end of the deal. Most times we are in touch way after the deal has closed and usually become close friends.
