About Me

I grew up northwest of Yankton, SD to a hard-working farm family who taught me to work diligently, with integrity, and treat everyone with respect and honesty. After spending 26 years as a legal assistant, I switched careers and found real estate the perfect fit. I have a heart for serving others and have always been a “matchmaker”.  Assisting people in finding or selling their haven is my passion and clients have told me that I go "above and beyond" for them.

Adults 50 and over face an entire new chapter of decisions and choices.  Your environment has changed:  empty nesters, aging parents, more free time, new hobbies, approaching retirement, grandchildren, entertaining, to name just a few.  Your questions may be:  Do we need all this room?  Should we downsize?  Would a single level floor plan be easier?  Should we move closer to the grandchildren?  Do we need a mother-in-law wing?  Do we need more room for our grown children and their children to visit?  I’m here to help you face the new environment and consider the options available to you.  I’m a certified Seniors Real Estate Specialist.

Thank you Julie Hayes, for helping sell my house in Blair!! Julie is well known in Blair and several of the surrounding communities, which helped my house sell quickly. She will respond day or night to questions by phone, text and email. This made getting answers quick and easy.

My mom is retired, and has lived alone since my father passed in 2014. She wanted to move near me in Oklahoma, and had never sold a house on her own. Julie Hayes not only sold her house for her, she went above and beyond the call of duty in helping her to understand the Real Estate process, plus helping her with simple things like hiring handymen to make repairs and working with me long distance in getting the forms signed and arrangements made. Thank you, Julie!

We are so glad we chose Julie as our realtor when it was time to sell our rental house. She was knowledgeable in knowing what buyers want so that sellers can make their houses as desirable as possible. She was instrumental in recommending the specialized skilled labor we needed for repairs. She got us close to our asking price when other agents said we should ask 20k less. The house sold quickly and was a relatively stress free process. Thank you Julie

I contacted Julie back in May to buy our first home. I was told she might be willing to help us out, so I gave her a call. I knew she wasn't from Omaha, but I figured I might as well ask if she was still willing to help. Immediately she took time out of her day nearly everyday until we found the home we loved! She had so many recommendations, explained the process (which we had no idea about), did the research for us and the most important thing was how far she drove out of her way. She drove 1 hour just to get to Omaha to show us. And then 1 hour back home. Julie is by far the most dedicated agent! I'm so glad she helped us find our first and I will recommend her to everyone I meet that's in the market for a new home.

SOLD!!!!! I want to say how amazing Julie is. Less than 36 hours [after listing my condo], I had a signed contract!!! If you need a house sold or looking to buy one, check her out!!! Thank you, Julie. - Steve B.

Julie was very patient with me during the whole house hunting process. It took looking at many houses before I found the right one, and she was informative and was quick to address any issues during the buying phase. I would highly recommend Julie to my friends and family because of the great job she did for me.

Thanks to Julie Hayes and NP Dodge Realty... because of their great local service the sale was definitely Ahead of the Curve! Job well done... #teamjulie #hometownrealtyalways Super excited! Accepted an offer for almost full asking price offer to buy my little yellow cottage! A huge thanks to Julie Hayes for doing such an amazing job! I have lots of friends and clients in the industry so the decision on who to list with was a very hard one...but ultimately it came down to me wanting to help a good friend get a boost with her brand new career! I'll always help the underdog and have zero regrets with this decision. #teamjuliehayes#neighborjulie #ihaveacaptiveaudiencedaily

I closed on my house today. Get the keys on Friday! Honestly, though, I couldn't have done it without my REALTOR, Julie Hayes. She held my hand through it all and worked around my crazy work schedule. Not only did I get a great house out of the deal, I made a new friend. I really love this woman. If you are ever looking to buy a house, you couldn't find a better realtor or person to help you.

- Jeanne H.

Julie is passionate about helping her clients find a home, that they can be happy in. She is the type of person that speaks her mind, and will stand up for her clients. She is an A+ agent!

- Tony B.

You couldn't be in better hands with Julie. She will always go above and beyond to assist you in finding the right home. Believe me you can trust Julie Hayes.

- Lonnie G.

Julie did an amazing job helping me to purchase my first home! She was knowledgeable, and the things she wasn't sure on (I was her first sale), she was very professional and answered my questions in a very timely fashion. I believe if she had not been as persistent and on top of things, paying attention to the little details that I had mentioned in passing, that I would have purchased the home I did. I am in absolute love with my home and Julie is to thank for making my dreams come true! I cannot thank her enough for doing such wonderful job in listening to my wants and needs!
