- Our Story
Julia’s passion for serving her clients and knowledge of Atlanta and Metro Atlanta is evident from the moment you meet. Despite being one of the youngest agents within Dorsey Alston, she has been a consistent multi-million dollar producer since the beginning of her career in Atlanta real estate. Nearing her goal of 100 million in sales, Julia has ranked in the top 20 agents within Dorsey Alston since 2019 and was ranked the #6 agent office-wide in 2021 with over 24 million in individual sales. Julia’s ability to competitively navigate a fast-paced market and diverse range of sale price points all over town sets her apart as your Realtor.
Leading up to the successful start of Julia’s real estate career, she attended Greater Atlanta Christian School and graduated magna cum laude from The University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business with a B.B.A in Marketing and Communications. Go Dawgs! Julia’s knack for marketing sharpened during her time at international give-back brand, TOMS, and with a philanthropic fashion company, umano - as seen on Shark Tank in 2015! With an innate love for home building and property development, Julia purchased and completely renovated her first rental property in downtown Alpharetta in 2016. Witnessing the quick appreciation of her property value, nothing excites Julia more than educating her clients on investment opportunities in growing areas of the city and Metro area.
Julia has been awarded a life-time member of the Atlanta Board of REALTORS Multi-Million Dollar Sales Club. Her success derives from promptly communicating with her clients, understanding the language of the contract and simplifying the home buying or selling process. Julia provides unparalleled value by utilizing her team of contractors, vendors and Dorsey Alston staff in order to quickly prepare for market and during negotiations. With the ultimate goal of conducting a smooth and celebratory transaction, Julia prioritizes her clients’ needs while also strengthening co-op agent relationships.
Currently residing in Grant Park, you can find Julia at the neighborhood farmers market with her fiancé, discovering new restaurants around town or hosting weekly wine + cheese nights. She is a Friend of Emory’s Winship Cancer Institute, donating a portion of every sale to the Radiation Oncology Department. Additionally Julia serves on the Greater Atlanta Christian School Alumni Board, is a member of Buckhead Church and a proud sponsor of 410 Bridge. If she’s not in town, Julia is hopefully with family in Inlet Beach - her favorite vacation spot!
Julia Sykes made the experience of selling our home seamless. She is extremely professional and her attention to detail sets her apart from all other realtors. With her experience and knowledge she walks you through the process with ease. Most importantly, Julia takes great care to listen to ensure that she provides the support that will exceed your expectations from start to finish. Also, we must mention the outstanding photography and video tour by Fabio which was an amazing gift that captured the passion we created in our home! Julia and Fabio are quite a team! We are so grateful we selected Julia to sell our home! She truly is a blessing!
Julia was great to work with from start to finish. We had a flexible timeline but very precise desires for our first home, and she helped us find our dream home. She was helpful in teaching us all about the home buying process, as we were first-time home buyers. No question ever felt dumb with Julia and she was so accommodating and gracious to our many questions and needs throughout the months working with her. She was also professional and you could tell she was respected by other agents. If you are a first-time home buyer, Julia should be your realtor hands-down!
Julia helped us find our first home in an up and coming area during the covid19 season. And we are so thankful to have had her by our side. She was highly responsive, always making time for us as soon as she could, and very flexible with work schedules. When we would go through a house she gathered as much information as possible from the seller if they were there like what piping, what issues there could be, and she could recognize and tell us what was to code and what we would have to fix in a home later down the road. Overall Julia is an eager and joyful person to go through the home buying process with! She even answers our questions now, two months later, if we have them.
Julia was knowledgable and helpful in every aspect of our search. Buying your first home is overwhelming and you can be left feeling like an idiot with so much to learn. She graciously walks you through each step. She never pushed for the homes that were at the top of the budget, she encouraged us to find exactly what was the best fit for us. She works so hard for her clients! We could not recommend her more!
As a first time home buyer, I was a deer in headlights. I lacked so much knowledge about the process and its intricacies that I probably should've read up on how to do it first. Luckily, I had Julia Sykes on my team. She took the time to educate me, field my dumb questions, and demonstrated tremendous patience with me. She was truly an advocate for me in every respect: She was responsive, kind, professional, thoughtful, and she took the time to develop and remember a working knowledge of my likes and dislikes in the home search process. While demonstrating the highest level of professionalism and competency in her job, working with Julia felt like working with a friend, which made the whole process much less terrifying. I can't recommend her enough and I hope to work with Julia again in a future home search!
Julia was awesome. We had four offers DURING the Covid-19 shelter in place while our house was only a quite listing - this was all due to Julia and her network! On the buy side, she handled multiple negotiations like a champ and we were thankful she was on our team. She also does a great job walking a first-time buyer through all of the steps and makes everyone feel so comfortable and informed. Highly recommend!
Julia was truly amazing and easy to work with. As first time home owners we knew so little going into the process and she was able to explain everything with knowledge and guidance. She made the home buying process fun, and really helped make our dreams of what we wanted come true. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell and she will get the job done! We are so thankful for Julia and her ability to stay on top of everything
Julia is the best! She was able to show me every house that I wanted. She was incredibly diligent and knowledgeable. She made the whole process totally stress-free. I cannot recommend her enough!
Ju is a childhood friend and now my go to real estate agent. She knew the entire process of buying a house from start to finish. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and without delay. Even when my wife and I peppered her with questions, she showed patience and professionalism every step of the way. You can tell she loves what she does through the time and effort she puts in to providing a wonderful experience for her clients. Would recommend her to anyone I know that is looking to buy a new house to call their home.
Julia is AMAZING. 1000000/100 recommend. Seriously, choosing Julia was THE best decision we made during the home buying process. From the start, she was extremely responsive and available, seemingly at all hours of the day. She put us first, and our desires, every single step of the way, while also knowing when to advise us and give us invaluable wisdom and insight, as this was my wife and I's first home buying experience. She went above and beyond every step of the way. Her knowledge of the Atlanta Metro area and beyond is top tier. She made the buying process so SIMPLE for us, we had zero worry the entire time. And her negotiation skills and professionalism are of someone way beyond her years, as each request we had throughout the process with the sellers and beyond was met or exceeded. Julia- thanks for everything. Everyone reading this, go with Julia, it'll be the most seamless and delightful home buying experience!
Julia was the best agent we could’ve ever asked for. As first time homebuyers, we had no clue what we were doing. She did so much more than just show us houses - she truly walked us through every step of the process. With her expertise and diligence, we went from making an offer to closing in just 20 days!! I cannot imagine a smoother home buying process and it was all thanks to Julia. We will definitely recommend her to friends and use her next time we move.
Julia helped walk us through every step of the process. Julia understood all the things that we needed to obtain for a first homebuying experience. Julia was timely in gathering all the data we needed for inspection, closing, and finding a home. Above all she was genuinely excited to find us our first home which we will never forget. 10/10 will use for next home buying process and recommend.
In 6 years I’ve been in Georgia, I haven’t met a single service person, from lawyers to handymen, that provided services with such quality. Julia comes prepared, she is smart, thoughtful and knowledgeable. She went above and beyond the scope of her duties to ensure an easy and rewarding experience. I spent 5 years at Deloitte and I’m now a senior manager in tech. I would summarize Julia in one word: she is a unicorn.
I recently just purchased my first home in Atlanta and Julia was the most incredible agent I could have asked for. From the first time we sat down she provided me with all of the information I could ever need. She was always available to answer questions or look at houses. She was always patient with my changing preferences and ultimately helped me find the perfect home! Julia ultimately became to feel like a close friend and was so supportive! If she wasn't familiar with a particular neighborhood she would reach out to her colleagues at her office. She had so many expert recommendations for mortgage brokers, inspectors, contractors, and specialists. I could not have done this without her. I highly recommend Julia to all first time homebuyers!

Julia is a great source for refining your areas to search, discovering neighborhoods and getting you acquainted with the area. Then her real skills come into play - she is great at putting the offers and contracts together to support you in multiple bid situations. She also has a great network of contractors and vendors to support during inspection and getting work completed quickly prior to moving in. Lastly, she is a wonderful person to hangout with as your exploring home after home. I would highly recommend Julia for any first time buyer (like myself) or a veteran who has bought multiple homes before.
Julia was the most amazing agent we could have asked for! We knew we wanted to be in Atlanta near the Beltline, but we felt overwhelmed by all the options and didn’t know if we could find something we could afford. Julia led us right to our dream home, and we love it! She was so responsive and helpful every step of the way. Whenever we needed anything - an inspection, a second opinion, whatever the case - she made it happen quickly and efficiently. We could not be more grateful to have had her as an agent, and we highly recommend her!
My husband & I purchased our first home with Julia and we could not have had a better experience! Julia held our hands the whole way, was always available, advocated for us, and answered all of our first time-home-buyer questions. We LOVED working with Julia and will only use her for any future home needs in the ATL area (expect we're never moving because she found us our dream home)!! HIGHLY recommend Julia to anyone and everyone looking for a home or even if you have questions - you'll know you're in good hands from the moment you meet/talk.
From the beginning of our house hunting journey, Julia made us feel at ease throughout the process. She was very attentive to our wants and needs, which allowed us to see homes that would be a great fit for us. Julia's expertise and knowledge helped guide us with our decision making; she was very supportive, so we never felt pressure to make decisions that we were not comfortable with. Julia helped us find the perfect starter home for our growing family, and we are so grateful for choosing her as our agent!
Julia is an excellent real estate professional who helped my wife and I find and purchase our new home. Julia always made herself available, spent countless hours finding very specifics homes that fit our criteria, and never got frustrated with our indecision! She made the closing process seamless and painless. Julia has in-depth market knowledge of Atlanta, and we always recommend her to anyone looking for a new home!
My experience with Julia was nothing short of the most perfect situation that I could have ever imagined as a first time home buyer. Julia was referred to me through mutual friends and I could not have asked for a better agent to help me find my first condo. Julia was incredibly responsive (so responsive that she was sending me potential condos while on vacation in Hawaii), extremely knowledgeable about the area and most importantly an absolute pleasure to work with. If you are looking for a home in the Atlanta area then Julia is the person to call. She found me the condo of my dreams and she was also able to immediately get me in touch with a loan provider (who was also extremely responsive and on the ball) as well as put me in touch with all the other service providers that I would need upon buying my condo. She was also very skilled when it came to negotiating with the seller to get exactly what I needed out of the seller in order to purchase the condo. Julia was a great agent and I would recommend her 10/10 and plan on using her in the future!
