Julia’s background in Interior Design is what ultimately led her into Real Estate. She loves the process of transforming homes and then watching how quickly they sell, in any market, not just the post-2020 market! Her Interior Design experience, combined with 18 years in Real Estate, offers her clients, the best of both worlds! She has seen all facets of the Real Estate market and knows how to navigate her clients through all market conditions. Julia says that while she loves many aspects of the business, her favorite part is the relationships that she forms along the way and sharing the joy as people celebrate their hard work and accomplishment of home ownership. Whether it’s a first home, a forever home or anything in between, it’s always a momentous and exciting moment in people’s lives!
