There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional: integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills, and a high-quality professional network -- all of which are hallmarks of how Julie works.
Julie's true passion and ambition shines through in her real estate career. Her main focus and priority is you and your happiness. She takes time to educate you and respects how valuable your time is. That is why you will get nothing less than the one-on-one attention you deserve delivered with a no-nonsense approach.
With over 21 years of experience in business, marketing, technology, and communications, as a real estate professional she has also found that providing the very best service is as simple as putting her clients first. Her enthusiasm is not just a personal style but her whole approach to life. Any of Julie's clients will tell you she is the personification of professionalism, unwavering focus, and determination. This means keeping herself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to their needs.
Julie is continually improving her skills and ways of doing business in this ever-changing real estate market. In addition, she has found that her commitment to keeping up with the latest technologies enables her to extend the range of her services, improves her efficiency, and provides clients access to her invaluable real estate network.
As a native of the Napa Valley, Julie has watched the Napa Valley and the surrounding areas continue to grow and evolve into the world-renowned destination so many seek. Her expertise in luxury residential real estate and her extensive knowledge of the area and valuable insights — insights only a native could provide into the complex local market -- are a tremendous asset for her clients. Now, more than ever, more affluent home buyers and sellers in the Napa Valley are turning to Julie for their real estate needs. She has had the pleasure of working with some of Napa’s finest winemakers, winery owners, technology founders, landscape architects, attorneys, luxury-spec homebuilders, local banks, corporate dispositions companies, portfolio and asset managers, members of the NFL, and more.
She began her career in the commercial construction industry in 1989 and attended University of California, Davis, focusing on construction management. With more than six years of experience in building some of Napa Valley’s finest wineries, hotels, professional sports training facilities, and commercial buildings, she chose to refocus her expertise in the field of real estate.
Attaining her real estate license in 1995, her passion for the Napa Valley has propelled her to the forefront to become one of the area’s most trusted real estate professionals. Julie’s dedication to customer service has enabled her to consistently be a top producer since the start of her career. In addition, Julie is always persuing knowledge. She recently earned her Associate of Science Degree in Viticulture and is looking forward to working with her vineyard clients.
Julie truly enjoys every aspect of the real estate transaction -- from the listing presentation through the closing. In addition, she is very much in touch with her client's needs and makes sure that her client's wishes are achieved. Her professionalism, determination, and positive attitude are the key to finding the right solution for her clients.
Julie currently lives in Napa with her daughter and is very active in the community. When she is not assisting clients, she enjoys spending time riding her horse, playing golf, being active outdoors, and, most of all, traveling.
