Julie Dancer - Iowa City REALTOR® - Iowa City Real Estate

Hi, I’m Julie. I help people with their real estate dreams!


Service drives me as a REALTOR® and brings me joy as a person. Before I embarked on my journey in this business, I was blessed to have the rich experience of developing and managing senior housing communities. I feel a deep compassion for the elderly and advocating on their behalf. Serving them has added much to my life and taught me valuable lessons I use daily in my work as a REALTOR® to help my clients in the Iowa City real estate market.

"As my family observes the one-year anniversary this month of being in our new home, I thought it would be a great time to complete this long overdue review. Julie heard from a family friend that I was planning to buy or build a new home for my kids and myself. She reached out to me and offered her assistance, but never pressured me to work with her. Julie sent me multiple options - both pre-owned and new construction. She took me to see the houses that I was interested in. She was patient with me as I was very specific on what I was looking for. And she introduced me to the builder that I initially decided to work with to build our home. Throughout the planning, construction and closing, Julie was always present, quick to respond to any questions and always willing to provide both options and things to consider. As a single father, it was great to have the support, not just with the search and contract, but providing feedback on my design choices. Where Julie was especially helpful was being the bridge between my builder and the VA lender. And when we had issues with the VA appraisal, it was her persistence that got the issue resolved, so that we could close on the home. I personally know many realtors, each very good at what they do, but Julie will always be my first recommendation to anyone looking for a realtor to buy or sell their home. She doesn't just work with you, she works for you, she guides you, and she protects you. I wouldn't be sitting in this home today if it wasn't for Julie."
