Meet Judi Margulies!



Although born in Atlanta, GA, I have lived in Raleigh since 1958, and proudly consider myself a native “Raleighite” and North Carolina “Tar Heel” at heart. Since graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1974, I have been happily married to another Raleigh native, Howard Margulies. Howard is President of United Restaurant Equipment Company, a well respected family business established in 1952 by Howard’s Dad, Jesse Margulies. Our two sons were raised and educated in Raleigh, and both were married in 2007. Our elder son lives in Chicago with his wife and three children. He is a real estate broker licensed in Illinois and North Carolina, affiliated with Marcus Millichap, specializing in property acquisitions such as shopping centers. Our younger son lives in Raleigh with his wife and three children, and is Vice President / Sales Manager of United Restaurant Equipment Company, the third generation in the family business.

There is simply no better place to live, work, play, grow and raise a family than in the Triangle area! That is why I have loved introducing newcomers to my hometown as a Residential Real Estate Broker since 1987. I look forward to continuing to establish long-term relationships with future clients through my commitment to outstanding service, professionalism, and unparalleled RESULTS.

"Jamie is a wonderful realtor to work with from the beginning until the end. As a first time home-buyer she guided and provided support to us in all the aspects. She is very patient, hard working and always available when needed or when we had questions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone especially for first time homeowners. Thank you so much Jamie in helping us finally get our cozy first time home!!! We appreciate your hard work! We will miss you, but let’s keep in touch! :)"

"We were moving to Raleigh from out of state. I can’t begin to explain how helpful it was to have Sophia on our side as we looked for a home. Her knowledge of the local area was especially valuable as newcomers to the area. She took us to many different neighborhoods all over the triangle. We are very pleased with our new home and the service Sophia provided!"

"Judi Margulies sold my daughter her home 17 years ago. She is always there for us – always pleasant and very knowledgeable, anticipating everything that should be done. We have bought and sold seven homes and NEVER had an agent like Judi! She is OUTSTANDING and goes ABOVE and BEYOND for her clients!"

~ Harriet & Matt Bresenoff 

"We generally don’t do business with good friends, however in this case to work with Judi Margulies, there was no question we wanted her and the Margulies team to sell our home. And we are so glad we did. From start to finish, the experience was excellent. Judi has a great team of pros and they brought creativity and great energy to the selling process. Her recommendations and vast resources were instrumental. We sold in 5 days from listing, you can’t get better than that."

~ Eva & Dan Mitchell 

"When we first visited North Carolina during the summer of 2020, it was important for us to find a realtor who was like-minded with us, competent, and most importantly, genuinely personal. After relocating here, Judi and her team worked with us, adapting to and negotiating the ever-changing market. We are appreciative for the professionalism and personal touch we have experienced with our Allen Tate friends. Thank you Judi, Jamie, and the rest of the team! David and Norma Contreras September 2023"

"Judi and her team were on top of every detail from start to finish to make selling my house smooth and easy. She has a large pool of experts available to contact for any issue that might arise. She made sure I was informed at each step and provided outstanding information on the offers I received. Judi's expertise on pricing and showing my property resulted in multiple outstanding offers. I am beyond happy!"

~ Susan Naylor 

"Sophia was great to work with and is a very nice person that we can tell truly cares for her clients. She was very hands on throughout the process and was always ready to help us anyway we needed her to. We were moving from out of state so we had a very limited time to see homes while we were in town and she coordinated everything for us very well, i think she got us into almost 20 homes over the course of just a few days in order for us to find the right house for us. She really listened to what we were looking for and guided us to the perfect property for us. I would highly recommend Sophia to anyone looking to buy or sell a home especially if coming from out of state as she was very good at accommodating our travel plans to make sure we were able to get everything done we needed to while we were in town."

~ TJ & Mckenzie Streeval 

"Jamie was wonderful. She's knowledgeable, learned what I wanted without truly discussing all the details, worked hard to find listings, advised me and was responsive. I would recommend Jamie to anyone!"
