A licensed real estate broker specializing in high-end coastal Orange County properties since 1981, Julia Liao has experienced more than three decades of economic cycles and market shifts. She’s also been a resident of Newport Beach and Corona del Mar for nearly 30 years, granting her a unique firsthand perspective on local home ownership. Combined with her extraordinary ability to oversee even the most complex transactions with efficiency and professionalism, these facts render Julia one of the industry’s most trustworthy sources for real estate representation. As a Hong Kong native and scholar in Chinese language and literature, Julia has earned a reputation as an “Asian Market Specialist” when it comes to luxury real estate in Orange County. She stays scrupulously current on global affairs to understand and anticipate dynamics affecting the wealth generation in Asian countries, and she extends her innovative marketing strategies to the most affluent buyers in the Asian market who are interested in high-end luxury homes and investment properties in Southern California. By utilizing her knowledge of Mandarin, Cantonese, Taiwanese, and Shanghainese, and leveraging her familiarity with Asian cultural nuances and negotiating styles to market ultra-luxury properties and to assist in arranging and negotiating transactions, Julia is able to bridge the language and cultural gaps that her clients often face in complex high-end real estate matters. And her education and artistic inclinations further distinguish her from her peers. Having earned a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature at USC, Julia speaks several languages — an ability that’s enabled her to build an international clientele base on referrals alone. Passionate about photography and large-scale painting, she also possesses a keen eye for style and design that’s proven highly beneficial to clients hoping to present their properties in the most strategic fashion. Always willing to go the extra mile, Julia maintains that her number one priority as a broker associate always has been and always will be the client. Having partnered with Surterre Properties®, a leading real estate firm in Southern California, Julia promises clients an edge in achieving their most important life objectives. The support of a management team comprised of the local industry’s most respected leaders, along with an in-house marketing and advertising studio and the latest technological advances are just a handful of elements that set Surterre apart. These unparalleled resources allow Julia to leverage her superb negotiation skills, local knowledge and wisdom to the greatest benefit of each and every buyer and seller she represents.
