Houston’s Dynamic Duo – Julia Wang and Romy Solanji
It all began last summer when Realtor Julia Wang walked into developer Romy Solanji‘s office. Amber — Solanji’s wife and the interior designer at the firm Timeline CG — was the mutual link and matchmaker.
“It was a quick yes,” says Solanji of this early meeting of minds. “And it’s been a great partnership since.”
Wang agrees: “We work well together because we stay focused on the goal, which is to sell homes and move things quickly.”
It was on the sale of one such home — the Mediterranean masterpiece at 5134 Huckleberry — that Solanji and Wang first collaborated.
“We don’t stick to one look or feel,” explains Solanji, “but everything that we build, whether traditional or contemporary in style, has to be innovative and modern.”
And innovative and modern is exactly how Wang goes about selling her homes: strategizing way beyond the MLS, working social media, and throwing open houses so opulent they could pass for A-list parties.
Like Solanji, she knows what it takes to set herself apart in such a competitive industry.
“Real estate is all about momentum,” Wang explains, in words that echo Solanji’s. She also worked her way to the top by pulling 70-hour weeks and seeking out mentorship from the best in the business: Nancy Almodovar, president and CEO of Houston-based Nan and Company Properties.
Her perseverance has paid off. In her five short years as a Realtor she has progressed from apartment locating to licensed broker and member of the Christie’s Master Circle.
Wang closed 2019 with $30 million in sales and heads up her own team of agents at Nan.
What can we expect next from Solanji and Wang? Another dreamy home, of course, but this time the kind of luxe dreaminess that overlooks Lake Travis. With only a few months until completion, now is the time to preview this exclusive Lago Vista property before it hits the MLS. “Call me soon,” recommends Wang. “I’m super excited about this one. There really is nothing else like it!”
