My Story

I have a long family history of being in the real estate and home building industry. My Grandfather was a real estate developer in San Diego and my father was a successful salesman that taught me the importance of outstanding “personalized” customer service.

At age 20 I decided I wanted to be a real estate salesperson. I obtained my real estate license in 1978 and began selling properties throughout Santa Cruz County. At age 21 I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in business with a minor in Real Estate from San Jose State.

In 1979, I married home builder Steve Hansmann and we built our first home together.  Our businesses are very complimentary of each other.

Steve and I have built or remodeled 11 homes ourselves. In addition, we have built many custom homes and remodels for clients.

We have three children John, Jacqueline, and Dave.

My husband Steve is a second-generation builder and now my two sons Dave and John are the 3rd generation of Hansmann home builders in Santa Cruz.  Jacqueline assists them in the office.

You can view homes the Hansmann’s have built at HANSMANNCONSTRUCTION.COM.

I have experience in selling land, residential homes, and commercial investment properties.

My husband and I have always loved living on the Westside of Santa Cruz. He and my son are surfers. I enjoy walking on West Cliff with friends and being a part of this beautiful community.

We recently built our “dream home” a few blocks from the beach and enjoy all the activities Santa Cruz has to offer.

I bring all this experience of home building and home selling to the table to assist you with your selling and buying needs.

Helping families move into their dream home is My passion

Get to know the amazing people I've worked with.

"My husband and I could not have found a more perfect partner to help us land our dream home. Julie was phenomenal from start to finish. She walked us through every step of the buying process – from guiding us through the challenging California housing market and helping us thoroughly evaluate each property to connecting us with the right experts to help us pounce on the home we loved. I’ve worked with other realtors before, but Julie’s deep knowledge in both real estate and the home building industry put her far ahead of the pack.  If you are looking for a true partner to help you start your home-buying journey, call Julie!"

First Time Home Buyers in Aptos

Julie was by our side through the whole process! She helped to keep an eye out for homes coming on the market, told us how the process works and what to expect, provided advice about making the offer and additional inspections we should get, and more. Julie helped us get a house we can make our home!

Buyer in Live Oak

When we met Julie, we were new to the Santa Cruz area & had just a basic idea of what we were really looking for in our new home. Within a few weeks, Julie helped us streamline our home search, while ensuring we were comfortable with every aspect of our decision. She then patiently worked with us & accompanied us on all our visits until we found our dream home.

Buyers in Ben Lomond

Julie was a vital, patient, attentive, and caring realtor who helped us purchase our first home! When we first expressed interest in a place, we contacted Julie and four days later over a weekend we had an offer accepted! Julie went out of her way to make sure our questions were answered (even tracking down contacts at the HOA to answer specific questions about paint colors used), and made us feel cared for and well taken care of! On the day we got our keys, it was clear she was incredibly excited for us, and we were so grateful to have her guide us through the journey of buying our home.
