Eleven productive years and counting!
Since 2009, Julie has been selling semis to sidesplits, condos to country estates and townhouses to triplexes.
Julie built a solid foundation for her real estate career working alongside her mother, Mary Dingman, a name long synonymous with real estate excellence in Stratford.
Prior to being gently persuaded to join her mother in real estate, Julie had an eight year adventure in the television business, working in Los Angeles and Toronto for FOX, ABC, HBO and CTV.
Julie has been schooled in the art of collaboration, communication and commitment, which translates into a smooth and engaged real estate experience for all of her clients. Also contributing to exceptional client care is Julie's executive assistant, Mary Anne Cook.
When not working with her clients, Julie can be found running & training for marathons, hoping to qualify for Boston.
A renovated firehall is home to Julie, her husband David & their dog Daisy. Julie and David took a firehall built in the mid-1960s and converted it into an industrial yet exceptionally warm home.
From the red carpet, to your carpet, Julie treats all of her clients like celebrities.

*Julie Dingman is a consummate real estate professional. Buying and selling a home is a stressful and emotional experience no matter how many times you have been through it and Julie helped us to sail through the process with flying colours. Her demeanour is both pleasant and professional. She is polite and sociable but remains totally focused on providing you with the best possible service without losing sight of your overall objectives. We were also delighted with her accessibility and prompt responses to our requests. Julie's experience helped us on a couple of occasions when we found ourselves reacting emotionally or instinctively instead of taking a more level-headed business-like approach to some obstacles. Without her guidance our negotiations may have gone sideways. Thanks Julie for representating us fairly and enthusiastically. A great job well done! Don C (Buyer & Seller) Jan/18

*Julie was exceptional (as were all of our dealings with any Home and Company Representives). She was open and communicative from the very beginning. She had a well thought-out plan and followed through with it in an incredibly timely fashion. She consistently provided us with prompt feed-back and we never had to guess what was happening or where we were in the process. She instilled us with absolute confidence. We really appreciated the technology employed by Home and Company and the ability to e-sign documents as, in our situation, we were not in the same province or time zone. Excellent experience from start to finish. Could not have been easier. (Seller July/17)
*Home and Company is very professional and up to date on current methods of digital communications and signing methods.

I would recommend them to everyone!! Great Job!! (Seller July/17)
*Julie was beyond helpful. She kept us motivated and grounded in a crazy sellers' market. She helped us to keep a clear view on what we wanted and deserved while somehow keeping us positive.
