  • About Julie

    I am a wife, a mother, a REALTOR, a community volunteer, a weekly blogger, a philanthropist, a comic at heart, a lapsed athlete, a flea-market junkie, a serial renovator, a "before-and-after" specialist, and a prolific chocolate-chip cookie baker. I enjoy a good book, a fabulous "find," an undiscovered treasure, and long walks on the beach - often with my husband and dog in tow.

    ​ After more than a decade honing my skills (and they are considerable), I moved to Compass in 2018 to offer my clients greater regional and international reach, better and more innovative technology, and a more relevant marketing approach to both buying and selling that are especially important in today's highly-competitive marketplace.

    I currently live in the Crocker Highlands neighborhood in Oakland, having sold our Piedmont home a few years ago, and enjoy working with both motivated Buyers and Sellers alike. Having bought and renovated several homes of my own over the years, I believe wholeheartedly in both the process and the dream of home-ownership. To that end, I work diligently on my clients' behalf and am delighted to help them navigate this exciting journey - whether in short order, or much further down the road. ​

    In my spare time, I write a very popular weekly Blog called "A New Perspective," which tracks lifestyle, community happenings and real estate news in and around the Bay Area.

    ​ Having spent the first half of my adult life in San Francisco, and my second in Piedmont/Oakland, I am pleased to have discovered all that this side of the bridge has to offer. The East Bay is an extremely vibrant, and eclectic kaleidoscope of people and experiences and I am proud to add my story to the mix. For more about me and what I bring to the process, I invite you to explore my website.
