I go by Julie Tam and am a partner/agent at Lyn Realty, specializing in residential/commercial sales, leasing, and property management. Our firm manages 160+ investment properties and has been serving clients from around the globe since 1981.
I'm a sought-after real estate source by news media interviewing me about real estate and publications featuring profiles of me. I used to be a TV news anchor/reporter, seen on local & national TV, from CNN to NBC to The Weather Channel.
I have superior negotiating skills when it comes to getting you the best price on your property, whether you're selling or buying, earning clients thousands upon thousands of dollars. I also pride myself on honesty, integrity, intelligence, market knowledge, experience, attention to detail, mastery of technology, prompt communication, and effectiveness in finding your next property or marketing your current one! Don't trust your most valuable asset to just anyone.
I value my clients, knowing that they will keep coming back to me for all of their real estate needs and refer people to me that they care about. I speak English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and Cantonese. I've traveled extensively through two dozen countries around the world, so I can relate to a diverse array of people.
I grew up in the business. My mother, Annie Chen, founded Lyn Realty in 1981. I've actually been "working" for her since I was 7, when I started doing her bookkeeping, following her to appointments, and doing everything else I was allowed to do without a license.
I earned a B.A. in Economics from Rice University, so I understand market trends and the math behind financing and property values. I serve on the Association of Rice Alumni Board of Directors. I'm a native Houstonian, so I've known the city for decades.
