Partnership brings success
Julie Bauer was a successful Realtor for nine years and then became even more successful when she partnered with colleague Becky Munro.
“We complement each other,” Bauer said. “She has a vision and I help to execute and implement it.”
Bauer began working for Wheeler in 2006 until it was acquired by Halstead Property Connecticut.
Bauer covers lower Fairfield County with a strong focus on Darien and Rowayton. A year ago, Bauer started working with Munro, who is one of the top producing agents in the country.
“She was a commodity trader and works on marketing and pricing and negotiating, and I help implement the preparing of the home.” Bauer said. “I consult with the clients and work on the best way to present the house to go on the market.”
“We take the time to look at the analytics and then we add our creative strategy. Our results are excellent. We achieve outstanding results,” she added.
Bauer, who worked in corporate communication in Chicago for 15 years before moving to Connecticut, does a lot of work with luxury properties.
“We put two homes on the market in the beginning of the year and they sold within three days,” she said.
The sale Bauer is most proud of is located at 26 Stephanie Lane in Darien. An offer was recently accepted for about $4 million.
“It’s a beautiful new construction home,” Bauer said. “It was built in 2012 and won an award in 2015 for most outstanding outdoor room. It has a salt water pool and spa. It also has a two-story entrance way with a curved staircase when you enter. We did some staging in the home and looked at the best way to highlight its features.”
Bauer called the business of real estate “emotional.”
“You want to be there for your client to support them and work side-by-side with them,” she said.
A big part of her success comes from working for a firm like Halstead, Bauer said.
“As whole, their marketing team in New York City is amazing,” she said. “They are so talented and cutting-edge. Halstead is one of the most innovative firms in how it promotes and markets its properties.”
For example, Bauer said, Halstead will provide the photographers and they will work together to “select the pictures and put the marketing materials together.”
Bauer enjoys playing tennis, decorating, making jewelry and spending time with family and friends.
