Born in Upstate New York and living there for the first 13 years of her life, Julie relocated to the Orlando area with her parents and 7 brothers and sisters. The transition from frigid cold and snow to sunny Florida was a welcome one, and her love for the communities in and around Orlando was immediate. She attended Seminole County Public Schools and graduated from Seminole High School in Sanford. After graduating, Julie got married and has three wonderful children., and four adorable grandchildren.
Her early start in the industry and strong ties to the Orlando area has proven to be imperative to her success in the real estate markets of Orlando and surrounding cities. The decision to work in real estate was a leap of faith for Julie. She jumped right into her job as a real estate paralegal with enthusiasm. Handling the legal side of commercial and residential real estate transactions also piqued her interest in sales, and she obtained her real estate license in 1988 and has been helping sellers, buyers and investors in the Orlando area real estate market ever since.
Her decision to open her own EXIT Realty offices came after 14 years of working as an on-site agent in new home construction communities and as a general residential Realtor with Higgins & Heath Realty/Better Homes and Gardens, and RE/MAX. Julie opened her own EXIT Realty offices in Orange and Seminole Counties in 2002. After several years, she also became the Regional Owner of Franchise Sales for EXIT Realty in North Texas. Spending 4+ years travelling back and forth between Texas and Florida, and managing all of her offices in both states, the market started to change so Julie shifted her focus to working with a smaller team and really concentrating on what she loves most about real estate: helping sellers sell high, buyers and investors buy low and all to achieve their real estate dreams and goals.
Having lived in Orlando, College Park, Baldwin Park, Winter Park, Winter Springs, Sanford and now in Oviedo has afforded Julie the opportunity to build strong relationships and create raving fans from which she now draws a lot of repeat business and referrals.
Julie makes it her commitment to always put her clients first. Julie is focused, driven and fearless in her negotiating skills. Her strong, vast and creative advertising skills bring the right sellers and buyers together, and her communication agreement will ensure that her clients are connected to the process from start to finish. Julie’s optimistic attitude never allows an ever-changing market to become a problem for her but rather, yet another opportunity and cause for excitement!
When Julie’s not excelling as a real estate professional in the Orlando and surrounding areas, she’s actively involved in local community activities such as the Oviedo/Winter Springs Chamber of Commerce, and Habitat for Humanity. She loves spending time in worship and activities at St. Margaret Mary Church in Winter Park. Julie has been a member of the Florida Association of Realtors, the Orlando Regional Realtors’ Association, and the National Association of Realtors since 1988. Julie also supports other very worthy causes for the cure of all cancer, diabetes and MS, as well as St Jude's Research Hospital, The Sharing Center, and the Missions in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
Julie relishes her family time! She also enjoys working out, relaxing at the beach, travelling, reading, and gardening.
